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?
To my surprise, many of the people believed I was the lost princess, and the next morning, several of them turned out in front of the palace yelling “We want Allie!” “Give us our rightful queen!” “Allie! Allie!”
“Stewardess, you see who the people want! Don’t you want to give them who they are asking for?” I shouted, so she could hear me over the people’s loud voices.
The stewardess looked on at the people, her eyes wide. She clearly didn’t know how to respond to this.
“I don’t care who they want! You have no proof that you are the lost princess!” The stewardess shouted back.
“Actually, I do. You do know about the royal birthmark, don’t you?” I asked.
“Yes, of course! What of it?” She asked, sticking her nose into the air.
I climbed up the wall and pulled my hair out of the way. “Look at my neck.” I told her, and when she did, her eyes grew wide again.
“This is ridiculous! It doesn’t mean anything! You could have just put a mark on your neck!” She yelled.
“You’ll have to do something far greater in order for me to believe you are the princess. Tell me what your name was when you born!” She demanded.
I froze. I hadn’t even known I was given a name when I was born! The only name I’d ever known was, Allie.
“Ah ha! I knew you weren’t the princess!” She yelled and walked away.
I slowly turned my head to the crowd. “Why wouldn’t Josh have told me my real name?” I wondered.
Corinne and Monica looked at me, their faces bewildered.
I came down and asked, “Corinne, do you remember my dad saying anything about my real name?”
“No, I don’t think he mentioned it.” She replied.
“I thought so.” I sighed.
“Well, maybe he doesn’t even know! Maybe your mother died before she had a chance to tell him!” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, that would make sense. My mom died shortly after I was born and my dad wasn’t home.” I said. Then I looked around for Adella. “I’m gonna see if Adella knows anything about my real name.” I said.
“Adella, do you know what name I was given when I was born?” I inquired.
“No, I’m afraid not. But perhaps you could check the library! There are many books in there about the kingdom’s history that I bet even the stewardess doesn’t know about.” Adella suggested with a smile.
That concludes this part! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming next!! 😀
I thought this shot would look great in sepia, what do you think?
This is one of my favorites!
I think she looks like such a prairie girl in this picture!
Now Kirsten and “I bid you all a very fond farewell”, until my next post! 😀
Have a wonderful day!
Hey everyone! Thank you all so much again for all of your birthday wishes! I had a really nice day and I got some great stuff!! So I’m gonna show you what I got (remember, I’m not bragging at all. I just know that a lot of peeps like to see hauls, and I wanna show you cause I’m excited )!! 😀 Oh, and there are some non-AG things mentioned in this post, too 😉
Two of the things I got are the Birthday Accessories (sorry if I’m wrong about names. I really cant remember what these are called 😛 ) and the Birthday Outfit! And oh, my goodness, I can’t believe I’ve had Saige for 2 years! It seems like she JUST came out!
Here’s the front of the birthday card. Coconut is so adorable!
And here’s the inside of the card

The sleeves are super cute, too!
This purse is SO cute!! I love it!!

Okay, so I also got a caramel leather jacket with a grey hood, a black duster jacket, a white ruffly tank top, a shirt that says “Warning: I know all the words to Frozen and I will sing them to you.”, some money, and ONE other BIG thing that I am saving to show you for another post! PLUS there’s the other big thing that I bought which is coming on Wednesday!! EEEEK!! I can’t WAIT to show you these two things!!! 😀
Have a nice day! 😀
Kirsten slammed her book shut and stared excitedly at what Eli had placed on the floor. “Bubble wrap!!” She exclaimed.
They sat on the couch so they would be more comfortable while they popped all of those bubbles. *POP! POP!* Kirsten popped two bubbles.
Eli leaned over and said, as he reached for the bubble wrap, “Okay, my turn now!”
Kirsten did a very dramatic gasp, her mouth and eyes slowly widening.
“YOU’VE NEVER POPPED BUBBLE WRAP?!” Eli and Kirsten yelled in unison.
“YES! She likes it!” Eli yelled, raising his hand in the air.
Do you like to pop bubble wrap?
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!
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?
Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!!! 😀
In just a couple of days- On the 21st- it will be a year since I started my very first photostory series. Do you know which one??
That’s right! September 21st is the day that I started “A Pirate Adventure”!! AND the reason I made it was because of Talk Like A Pirate Day! 😀
I have loved all of my pirate series, enjoyed every minute of making them, and have truly appreciated every single one of your comments on them! And I’m going to let you all in on a little secret-
I’m going to continue making pirate series for a very long time! I find that they are one of the easiest types of photostory series to make and I just LOVE making them! 😀
Now, in celebration of “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, join Victoria, Captain McGovern and her hearty crew, and Jake on their thrilling adventures!
Farewell, Maties! Enjoy readin’ them stories! 😉 😛
It was a normal day at the animal shelter with puppies barking and kittens meowing. And Kirsten was quite tired of hearing Josefina complain about this little kitten who would not drink the milk it was offered.
“Oh, finally! What a good little kitty!” Josefina exclaimed as the new kitten drank it’s milk. Kirsten giggled and let out a sigh of relief. “I told you he would take some once he felt comfortable and got to know you! See, he’s even letting you pet him, which he wasn’t allowing at first either.” Kirsten stated.
She turned her head and saw a young lady standing by the door. “Oh, hello! Welcome to River Creek Animal Shelter. My name is Kirsten.” She greeted.
“How may I help you?” Kirsten asked as the lady walked up to the desk. “Well, I just moved here and I’m all alone in my new house. So I thought it might be good for me to have a pet to keep me company.” The girl explained.
“I believe we have the perfect pet for you! Come on back here.” Kirsten said as she opened up the swinging door.
Kirsten pointed to a little orange and white striped kitten playing with a ball of yarn. “This little kitty would be great for you!” She said.
The girl leaned over to get a better look at the kitten. She couldn’t help but giggle as she watched it play.
“May I hold her, please?” She asked. “Oh, of course!” Kirsten replied.
“Here you are.” Kirsten said as she handed her the kitten.
As the girl held the little kitten she smiled.
And then, the cutest thing happened! The kitten seemed to be smiling back at her! She giggled and said, “I think I’ll call you Amber.” Kirsten looked at the girl and said, “So, you’ve decided to take her?” The girl smiled. “Oh, yes! She’s coming home with me.”
What is your favorite animal?
We got to Fire Cove, where Jake’s hideout was, in one day. We were going to free Elena and fight for The Cube of Light!
Captain Elinor and I entered the cave and started on our hunt for Elena and for Jake.
And then there, lurking in the shadows, was Jake!
“Captain, Victoria, I thought ye might show up.” Jake began. “If you’re looking for Elena she’s right down that passage way. You can go get her, Victoria.” Jake finished kindly. After what he’d done I did not even want to see him or talk to him, but I obviously had no choice. “Go on, Victoria, but be careful.” Elinor warned.
Jake laughed, “There’s nothing to be worried about. I told you she’d be safe.” He said.
“Yes, and how many other things did you tell me, Jake? How many times did you lie to me?” I asked my eyes welling up with tears.
Jake looked at me with guilt. “I promise, Victoria, she is safe and unharmed.” He said and I went to Elena’s aid.
“Jake, give me The Cube!” Elinor demanded, pointing her sword. “Why should I do that?” Jake asked.
Elinor studied Jake. “Because you love Victoria. Do this to make her happy and get her back.” Elinor said.
Jake turned away from Elinor. “She doesn’t love me. And she never would. Even if I did give it back, she wouldn’t trust me.” Jake said quietly.
“I think if you were to let Elena free, give back The Cube of Light, and apologize to Victoria, she would forgive you.” Elinor said.
Jake turned to face Elinor and took The Cube out of his coat pocket. “I’m not doing this for Victoria, I’m doing it to be a good man.” And with that The Cube of Light was back in Elinor’s hands.
Finding Elena was a bit difficult, but soon enough I saw her.
She was locked up in some sort of a jail cell. “Elena! It’s me, Victoria!” I whispered. Elena looked at me and she could not believe her eyes. “Victoria, what are ye doin’ here? Where’s Elinor?” Elena asked quickly.
“Everything’s fine, Elena! Elinor is here, but she sent me to rescue you! Come now, we have to move quickly. Jake promised you would be safe, but I don’t know if he told his crew about that. Do you know where the keys are?” I asked.
Elena moved her head to point, “Over thar! But be careful there’s a tra-” Elena was cut off by the sound of rocks rumbling overhead.
“What is that?” I yelled.” Elena shouted, “A trap! You have to hurry!” I started running to the keys on the hook, but was tackled to the ground by Jake,
“WATCH OUT!” He yelled just before he was buried by rocks. “No. Jake!!” I yelled.
I started moving the rocks to save him. It took some time, but I finally got them off of him.
And there he was, just lying there all dirty and injured. “Jake, why did you do that?” I sobbed.
He looked up at me with a weak smile. “Just as before. I-I couldn’t let anything happen to you. I love you.” He said with tears in his eyes.
“I love you, too, Jake.” I cried.
Six weeks passed and Jake was almost fully recovered. But news that is much greater than that-
Jake and I were married, but in secret, so that no other pirates would know.
“We’re coming up to the city of Dale. We’ll stop there for some supplies.” Jake said.
“Isn’t that kinda dangerous? I mean, since we’re pirates and we are married.” I asked, but Jake didn’t reply right away.
“We should be fine. As long as Blackheart isn’t making port there right now…”
And that’s where we end Part 5! Look for the Grand Finale coming soon!!
