You’re all probably doing this right now – *rechecks title* Does that really say photostory?
Yes, yes, it does! I’ve finally made a photostory! YAY!!
Annika will take over now
Sometimes when I stand by the door to the backyard and I feel the cool breeze sweeping over me and hear the birds chirping, I just feel called to go outside. That’s what happened to me today. It was so beautiful outside I just had to go out and be surrounded by the fresh air.
I smiled gleefully as I watched them. They were so adorable, it killed me.
Awww…. I love my horses, but I hardly ever use them! It felt good to give these little ponies some attention
Have you ever pet a pony?
“Wow, you’re already ready?” Felicity asked with a chuckle. Kaya grinned and said, “Yes, I’m sorry I took so long. I just wanted to make sure Steps High was thoroughly groomed first.” Felicity smiled playfully. “It’s okay, I’m used to it.” She teased.
The two sisters walked their horses through the small field and chatted away.
“Just think, as soon as Luthien, Eowyn, and Sparks Flying get old enough to ride, we can go riding with Saige, Annika, and Jocelyn!” Kaya said excitedly. She always loved spending time with her sisters outdoors.
“FOR NARNIA!” Felicity shouted and Kaya laughed. “What is that?” She inquired. Felicity gasped. “We haven’t watched Narnia together yet, have we?” She asked in disbelief.
“No…?” Kaya said questioningly, wondering what other movie she was going to be getting herself into.
Kaya and Felicity had a great time that afternoon with their very best friends – their horses.
Hi! Oh, my goodness, it was SO hot outside when I took these pictures! And windy, so it was hard to balance Kaya on her horse without a saddle LOL! I was disappointed when I went outside and realized the lighting wasn’t that great for taking pictures, and then when I came inside I looked out the window and the whole area I was taking pictures in got shaded…. 😕
Okay, so a bit of exciting news……. ELLA COMES HOME ON SATURDAY!! YAY!!! 😀 There will definitely be a post about her on that day! 😉
OH! One more thing! I added a new page called “Meet Jaclynn”, so be sure to head over there and check it out!
Who is your doll’s best friend?
Hey everyone! Yesterday I cleaned out under my bed (my doll’s bedroom) because I’ve been having a ton of baby spiders in my room lately (*shudders*) and the other day I noticed a few under there, so I freaked out… Anyways! Back to the subject of this post – I set up my dolls to where they’re all doing something and I thought it’d be fun to show you what they’re up to
So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!
Over here, Dallas is getting Pepper out of his bed so he, Eli, and Jeremy can play with him. Rapunzel is asking if she can play with him, too and Lissie is trying to get a book, but Dallas is in the way. You can kinda see Clara back there just hanging out
Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice
Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.
And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛
And of course Caleb and Kendra are fighting and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kristoff is trying to pull Caleb off of Kendra and Annika starts to intervene. Mickey and Minnie are sad and scared by their fighting as usual, too 😉
Kanani, Riven-Delle, and Annika had all been talking, but then stopped instantly when they noticed Caleb and Kendra fighting. Anna was gonna talk to Riven-Delle, but also stopped when she noticed the fight.
Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛
Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking
And oh, dear! Marie-Grace was talking to Saige (who is painting) when she was supposed to be practicing her singing, so Lana told her to stop talking to Saige, Marie-Grace got mad, and now Jess came over and is trying to tell Lana that it’s okay for Marie-Grace to talk to Saige. My goodness!
Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten
Jenna doing some things at the vanity
And Kiara and Caroline are chatting
Do your dolls have a usual thing that happens every day? Like how Caleb and Kendra always fight? What do your dolls like to do?
I was having a heart-attack last night (not literal, I was just SUPER excited)!!! My dad was asleep in the other room and I was trying SO hard not to yell and scream over everything!! LOL! 😛

Okay, so are you all ready to see this awesome release?! Good! Let’s get started! 😀
Rebecca’s Seashore Set $48- I’m sorry, but I don’t really like this. It looks way too modern to me, and those boots literally look like boots that girls wear today. I will say that the chair is cute, though
Alrighty, ready to move into MAG? Me too!!
Shimmer & Lace Party Dress $30- This is SO CUTE!! I love the color and how lacy it is! 😀
Pretty Pink Tutu Set $28- Again, it’s cute, but I won’t be buying either of them You can also buy both of them in a set together for $62 😉
Sunshine Gardening Bench Set $68- This is adorable!! It made me realize that I don’t have a doll that likes gardening yet! Hmm…. I wonder what doll I want could fit that role…. 😛
Now onto the Bitty Babies!
Now for books!
Doll Pets $24.99- THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!! I love this!! 😀
Alright, so that was the entire release (except for the girl’s sized clothes 😉 )!! I am VERY happy with this release!! And A LOT of new items have gone on my wishlist!! I think my favorite item in this release is Samantha’s Gazebo. I can not get over how amazing that is! 😀
What are your thoughts on the release? What was your favorite new item?
P.S. SO sad that Josefina got NOTHING new
Yesterday, I went to the thrift store with my mom and sister. There were SO many dolls, it was amazing!! Although we had 6 dolls in our hands, I had to choose one to buy. Let me show you who I got – I’m so in love with her! 😀
Can you guess what doll she is?
If you guessed Karito Kids Leza, then you are correct! We got her for $6- a great price! She had so many marks on her and her hair was a complete mess! The ends of her hair are still not in the best condition, but with the way we styled it, you can hardly tell!
Her hair and eye color are so pretty!
In case you’re wondering, to get off all of the marks that were on her vinyl, I used Magic Eraser. There are still a few marks that won’t come off, though. I’ll probably try something else And as for her hair, I washed it with shampoo and conditioner, combed it out and set her down to dry. Within a few hours, her hair was dry! My mom also cut her hair for me and styled it with her hair straightener. I wish her hair could’ve been longer, but apparently her previous owner gave her a really uneven hair cut
Her pretty hair
I LOVE this picture!! 😀
Oh, my goodness, it was so funny! Right when I took this picture and right when the sun came out, I felt a drop of water on my hand – it started raining!! There was a rainbow, too! I love rainbows 😀
And here is a height comparison of Belinda and Kaya. As you can see, Lindy is much taller!
They’re so sweet!! 😀
Have you ever heard of Karito Kids Dolls?
Okay, so before I get started with this photostory I just have to say that I am DYING OVER GRACE!!! She’s GORGEOUS!! I’m SO excited to get her on my birthday!! 😀
Now, onto the photostory!
“Hi!” The customer, who was named Rose, replied.
Rose stepped out of the doorway and just stood for a minute.
“Can I help you find anything today?” The employee asked. “Oh, no, thank you. I’m just waiting for a friend.” Rose replied. After waiting a while longer she finally saw her friend step into the store.
“Hi, Rose!” Melody greeted.
“I’m sorry I’m a little late, but there was a ton of traffic on the way here.” Melody explained. “Oh, it’s okay! I had a little traffic, too.” Rose said with a smile.
“I seriously love your coat! Where did you get it?” Rose asked as she pointed to Melody’s coat.
Melody went through some capris. “Hmm… These are pretty cute.” Melody said thoughtfully.
“What do you think of this blazer, Melody?” Rose asked with a super cute striped blazer in her hand.
“Oooh! I love it! That would look so great on you!” Melody exclaimed.
“Yeah, you should definitely get it!” Melody said. “Hmm. Yeah, I think I will!” Rose said with a smile.
Rose wandered over to the shirt section.
Melody lifted up an adorable sweater. It was super soft and had a fair isle print on it. “Oh, my goodness! This is so me!” Melody exclaimed. She looked over the shirt to check if there were any snags or stains. “Okay, I’m getting it!” She said excitedly.
Melody took back her things and said with a giggle, “And I didn’t want to spend a lot of money today!”
After looking around the store some more, they were finally ready to check out.
“Did you want the hanger for this?” The lady at the register asked.
Soon it was Melody’s turn, so she plopped all of her clothes on the counter.
When Melody was done, she walked over to Rose. “So, how much-” Rose began, but Melody stopped her. “Don’t ask!” She said with a laugh, and Rose laughed, too. “Do you wanna get some lunch?” Rose asked. “Sure!” Melody replied.
So they walked out of the store and went down the street to eat at The Cheesecake Factory
Do your dolls like shopping?
A photoshoot will be coming later today!! 😀
P.S. Please keep checking back at Wack-A-Doodle-Dolls! She is posting at every hour today!
Kaya got out of bed early in the morning, just as she always did, but once again she saw Jenna was up before her.
Jenna was just starting to brush her out. “Ouch!” She whispered as she brushed through a knot.
“Good monring, Jenna. What are you doing up so early again? Are you not sleeping well?” Kaya asked in a soft whisper. It was very early in the morning and she didn’t want to wake anybody up. “Oh, good morning, Kaya! I’ve been sleepin’ fine. The reason I’ve been getting up so early is because back at the orphanage in Ireland, they would have us get up very early to do our chores. It’s just a habit for me.” Jenna replied in her thick Irish accent.
“What about you? Do you always get up this early, too?” Jenna asked.
“Yes. Where I come from, I had to get up early, too.” Kaya replied.
“Well, I’m gonna go check on the horses now.” Kaya said.
“Alrighty then! I’ll just continue doin’ me hair.” Jenna put her hand over her mouth and giggled as she realized that she had spoken a little too loudly.
So, the last gift I got were the Petals and Plaid PJ’s for Jenna! They’re so adorable!!! 😀
The shirt is so cute and I love how it looks like she’s wearing a tank top under it, but she really isn’t
The pants have a super cute print and are so silky! I also love the slippers!! The fur around the edge is just adorable!! They are super easy to get on, too!
I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! Jenna looks SO cute in these PJ’s and I’m so glad I got them for her! 😀
Do any of your dolls have accents?
Oh, my goodness! Tomorrow it will mark one week exactly until the Hillside Farms Holiday Craft Fair! I must admit that I haven’t been doing much crocheting for the past couple of months, cause in my head I think “Oh, there’s plenty of time!” and so at night I would just sit and watch movies while doing things on my iPod…. Ugh, so bad. Now that it’s a week away I am feeling majorly stressed! I still have so much to make and so little time! Eeks! 😕
Anyways, I didn’t want to fully neglect all of you for a week, so my mom gave me the idea to post about my preparation for the craft fair! I thought it was a great idea, so here we go!
I usually bring seven of my dolls to the craft fair each year, but since I have SO many new costumes (I’m planning to have every single main Disney Princess dress), I decided that I need to bring them all (and my friend Emma is loaning me one of her dolls to be Merida. Thank you SO much)! But that was a problem. I needed to find a way to make sure they all could fit, and also have some room to lay my other products on the table. So today I got the table out and made all of my dolls fit on top! YAY! 😀 The ones in the back are going to be raised up, too, but I need to buy some more risers, so that’s why they aren’t even with the others 😛
Then after that, I needed to see if our big 30 gallon bin, would hold all 15 dolls, and it did!! But I need to buy a new one for myself because my mom uses that bin for all of her stuff 😉
Now I am off to crochet! This whole next week is going to be crazy busy, but I promise, you will still see some posts from me!
Bye for now!
Today was finally pretty cold (and by that I mean like 65), so I let Kaya take Caleb in the backyard so he could play
“Alright, Caleb, you go on and play.” Kaya told her little brother.
Before Kaya had finished her sentence Caleb was already rolling his little police car all over the place!
“Uh oh!” Caleb said as his car went under the gate. He tried and tried to get it out, but he couldn’t reach it!
Kaya was looking around, just enjoying the cold air.
“Kaya!” Caleb called his sister. “What’s wrong, Caleb?” Kaya asked. “Help!” Caleb yelled.
“What is it?” Kaya asked once she reached her brother. “I can’t each (no, I left the r out on purpose 😉 )!” Caleb said as he pointed to his car.
Kaya giggled. “It’s okay! I’ll get it for you.”
Kaya stretched her arm under as far as she could, but she couldn’t reach it either.
“We’ll have to go on the other side. I’ll ask mama to unlock the gate.” Kaya explained as Caleb stared sadly at his car.
I opened the gate for them and Caleb instantly ran to his car. After a few minutes Kaya said, “Caleb, we should probably go back inside now. It’s getting colder and windier.”
Caleb looked up at his sister with a face that said, “No, I don’t want to!”
Before Kaya knew it, Caleb had picked up his car and moved to another spot to play. Boy he moved fast! “Caleb! Come on we have to go inside!” Kaya called.
Caleb stared back at his sister. “No, no!” He yelled.
“Caleb, come here.” Kaya said sternly.
Caleb plopped himself on the ground and crossed his arms. “No.” He said.
Kaya sighed and walked over to him. “Caleb, mommy told me to bring you inside once it started getting colder. We can come back out and play tomorrow, okay?” Kaya said sweetly.
Caleb looked away. “Okaaaayyy…” He said, disappointed.
Kaya took his hand gently and they went inside. Caleb ended up being happy to go inside because he got to watch VeggieTales and have a cookie
Do your dolls have a little brother or sister?
I’ve noticed a few blogs have been taking family photos of their dolls, and I’ve always wanted to do that, but because I have so many, it would take HOURS to get them all ready, so I never did it. But- it is time to stop being lazy, LOL! 😛
Back row, left to right- Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Kirsten, Rebecca, Kanani, Marie-Grace, Caroline, and Saige.
Bottom row, left to right- Beth, Annika, Kendra, Cecile, Caleb, Samantha, Jeremy, Kaya, Mickey, Jess, Minnie, Clara, and Janie
I took a family photo of all of my AG dolls (including my sisters) on Saturday and I think it turned out great! It was so neat to see them all set up together I was going to do a family photo that included everyone in my doll family, which would include MyTwinn, Disney Toddler Dolls, and other baby dolls, but I didn’t have room anywhere to get a picture of all of them! So maybe some day I’ll get a family picture of my non-AG dolls 😉
Who is in your American Girl Doll family?
