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?
Hey everyone! Before we start the photostory I have to let you know something:
When my dolls go to Camp Doll Diaries they aren’t gonna be my “kids” that are going, but they will all be from different families and will be friends 🙂
Now that I’ve given you that piece of information, let’s get on with the story!
“Clara! Clara! Clara!!” Rebecca screamed as she came bursting through the bedroom door.
“Now that you’ve scared me half to death, what is it?” Clara asked with a smile, but still trying to catch her breath. She was very startled.
“Look! We got a postcard and it says that Camp Doll Diaries will be starting on June 2nd!!” Rebecca said.
“That’s super soon and this year you can come with me because now you’re old enough! Isn’t that exciting? We’ll have so much fun together!!” Rebecca said excitedly.
“Oh, yeah, that’s real exciting.” Clara said as she turned her head away.
“Clara? What’s wrong? I thought you’d be sooo excited! You were really sad when you couldn’t go last year.” Rebecca said, feeling confused.
Clara got up from her desk and walked over to the vanity. “I know, Becca, it’s just that…. Well, I think I’ll stay here again. It really wasn’t so bad last year.” Clara said sadly.
“Clara, you said you were super lonely and bored with me gone all summer. Now, what’s really wrong?” Rebecca asked.
“I know what I said last year, and it was true. I really was sad, but now that I’m old enough and now that it’s here-” Clara paused for a moment. She was ashamed to say how she felt because Rebecca was so outgoing and brave. Clara really looked up to her. Finally, somehow she managed to get out the words, “The truth is, Rebecca, I’m scared! I’m not going to know anyone or how to do anything! I’m the type of girl who’d like to stay inside and read a book or watch movies! I just don’t think I could handle it.” Clara cried.
“Oh, Clara! I understand how you feel. I felt the same way when I first went to camp. But I promise you that you’ll be just fine! You’re going to love camp and make lots of new friends! And if you want, you could spend all of your time in the crafting cabin or sitting on your bed reading a book. No matter what you choose to do, I know you’ll have the time of your life!” Rebecca explained.
“Thanks, Rebecca! I guess I’ll go, but I probably won’t stop being scared until after the first day of camp.” Clara said with a little smile. She was still very nervous, but if what her sister said was true, she thought she might as well give it a try.
Today, my mom and I did some crafting! We had SO much fun making these things for Camp Doll Diaries!
Have you started preparing for Camp? Do you have a “child” who’s as scared as Clara?
After we got home from church yesterday and ate lunch I just wanted to relax for awhile. Then it was time to go over my brother in-law’s family’s house. I had such a great time and I got to see my friend Alyssa (you might remember me asking for prayer requests for her when she was in the hospital with bad seizures. Thankfully she is doing a LOT better and it made me really happy!) 😀
First, my girls started out with an Easter Egg Hunt! All of my “kids” didn’t do it, only 6 of them and they were in teams of 3 😉
All the pretty eggs on the lawn 🙂
“Which way should we go first?” Cecile asked excitedly.
“Oh, oh! Let’s get those pretty pink eggs!” Marie-Grace said.
Rebecca went to pick them up and placed them in the basket.
“I think we have enough eggs now. We should let the others get the rest.” Kaya said trying to be fair to her sisters.
“Yeah, that’s a good idea.” Saige replied.
After the egg hunt, they all went inside to join the others.
Marie-Grace counted her eggs and Cecile and Caroline sat with her.
“How many did you guys get?” Caroline asked.
“Five, six and seven! We got seven eggs!” Marie-Grace said with a big smile.
“They collected practically all of the pink eggs. There were hardly any for us!” Kanani said to Jess.
“Well, I know I haven’t been here long, but it seems like pink is Marie-Grace’s favorite color, so I guess it makes sense.” Jess said with a giggle.
Samantha poured herself a cup of tea and said, “Do you like tea, Lissie?”
“Yes, I love tea!” Felicity replied and Samantha poured her a cup.
“C’mon, Kristoff. Let’s get all the cinnamon rolls before the others get a chance to have any!” Eli whispered, but Samantha heard him. “Eli, you two are not eating all of those cinnamon rolls! That is so bad for you!” Samantha scolded.
“How are you doing, Jess? I thought it might be hard for you to celebrate Easter without your family.” Annika said sadly.
“I’m doing okay. Some things have been a little hard, but I’m doing alright.” Jess replied.
“That’s good. And remember, I’m always here if you need to talk to someone.” Annika said kindly.
“Thank you, Annika. I’ll remember that.” Jess smiled. “This family is a lot different than my old one,” Jess thought, “but I think that in time, I’m going to love it here. Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with such an amazing family.”
Alright! You all guessed correctly, I did get the Sweet School Dress! Now as for the doll, Anonymous was the only one who guessed that correctly 🙂
It’s Jess!! She absolutely LOVES this outfit! And I’ll definitely be reviewing it soon, so keep your eyes open for it! 😀
Happy (late) Easter from me and my dolls!!!!
How did you spend your Easter? Did you get any dolly surprises?
Today I made a video of my American Girl Doll Collection! You can watch below or on my YouTube!
I hope you enjoy! And (if you’re allowed) please “like” and subscribe! 🙂
What AG dolls do you have?
Well, this is pretty exciting! I’ve never done a Throwback Thursday before, but today I really felt like doing one!
This was my table at my first craft fair in May of 2010. I only knew how to make beanies and ruffled hats. I wasn’t even making bonnets yet!
And this is my table at the last craft fair I did in December of 2013. Now I have mostly outfits and costumes! I think it is so neat to see how far I have come in my crocheting. I can’t wait for my next craft fair in May! I’m sure Anna and Elsa will be a huge hit! 🙂
Now it’s question time!

Hi everyone! Happy (late) Valentine’s Day! I hope you all had a great day! 😀
I’m going to show you some pictures I took of my “kids” at their Valentine’s Day Party.
They all had such a fun time together! Every time I walked by the room I heard laughs and giggles! 🙂
“Have you tried the punch, Kanani? It’s really good!” Saige asked her sister.
“No, I haven’t. I’ll have to try some!” Kanani replied.
“Are you going to eat something, Samantha?” Kanani asked.
“Hmm.. I think I’m going to have a slice of that cookie cake!” Samantha said with a smile.
Annika, Marie-Grace, and Cecile were talking together in a corner and Addy went over to see what they were talking about.
“What are you three talking about?” Addy asked sweetly.
“We’re talking about all the amazing songs in Frozen and how we wish we could sing like them!” Marie-Grace replied. Them three are the singers in our family, so they talk about songs from movies a lot. 😉
However, Addy also likes the songs from Frozen, so she decided to join their conversation.
On the other side of the room, Eli started on his second cupcake and Lissie reached for a truffle, but got distracted by what Rebecca was asking Elijah.
“I just realized that I never asked you when your birthday was!” Rebecca said.
“You didn’t? It’s on November 5th.” Eli replied.
Josefina and Caroline were talking together and Kirsten made her way over to the table with a slice of iced lemon pound cake. Yum!
Everyone ate practically all day. Yes, I made an exception. After all, it’s a holiday! 🙂
Then they passed out handmade valentines. And at night they got in their jammies and watched Monster’s University.
They have all been talking about how much fun they had yesterday and how they wish they could do it all the time. I told them that it doesn’t have to be a holiday to have a good time together. It can be any day at all! Remember to enjoy your life with family and friends and make memories that will last forever 🙂
Did you and your dolls celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Hi and Merry Christmas again!!
So, whenever I introduce my “kids” to each other I always line them up or just set them up in some way. Well, today my mom came in my room just as I had finished lining them up. She decided that she had to take a picture because it is just so crazy how many there are.
I counted 11 toddlers and 11 of the 18″. WHOA! Now I have 12 of the toddlers and 12 of the 18″ 😛
If I keep getting dolls, pretty soon they are gonna end up sleeping on the floor! They are all totally squished in their beds right now. Poor little things- LOL!
How many dolls do you have? Where do they sleep?
Oh, my goodness!! I can’t believe it’s CHRISTMAS!!! I had such a nice morning opening presents, eating an amazing breakfast, and talking and laughing with my family 🙂 Now, I am SUPER excited to show you what I got (I am only showing doll related things 😉 )!!!
I got Saige’s Bracelet in my stocking! It is so cute and really comfortable. I’ve been wearing it ever since I opened it 😀
I got the Fancy Dress from Marie-Grace and Cecile’s Collection!! I think Marie-Grace looks just like a little princess 🙂
I am SO happy that I got Saige’s Sparkle Dress! She looks so gorgeous in those colors!
Another outfit I was super excited to receive!! When I saw that Cecile’s Special Dress wasn’t on the AG site anymore I got so upset because I really wanted it for Cece, but now she has it!! YAY!!
That’s all I got this morning (you’ll see the last thing at the end of the post 😉 ), but yesterday my sister and brother in-law came over and I goooooottt…..
The Anna toddler doll from Disney’s Frozen!!!! She is SOOO CUTE!!! I am making her age be 4, so that she can talk good (like in the movie, hehe!). I am so happy to have her! I’ve wanted her for a while now 😀
And now it is time for the suspense!!!
Hmmmm…. What do you think could’ve been in this box….? Hehe!
Here is the lid for the box (I cut it off, so you’d be in more suspense!! 😛 ). And now it is finally time to show you!!!! 😀
It’s A MY TWINN 18″ BOY DOLL!!!! He has very fair skin, Green/brown eyes, and black hair with loose curls all over. He is really cute and I have been wanting a My Twinn boy doll for a while. I have decided to name him Elijah and his middle name is James. I am making him be 10 years old. 😀
I am SO blessed and thankful! I absolutely LOVE everything!! Earlier this month I didn’t think I would get a doll, but I ended up with 2!! Eeks! I’m gonna have to think up a good story on how I all of a sudden have 2 new kids!! I better go start writing down some ideas- LOL! 😀 😛
What did you get for Christmas? Any new “children”? 🙂
Today I took the girls to get their Christmas photos taken! I think they turned out SO cute!
Here are my 4 oldest girls, Annika, Addy, Josefina, and Felicity.
My 3 middle girls, Kirsten, Saige, and Kanani.
And my four youngest, Caroline, Cecile, Marie-Grace, and Rebecca. I also had a few more pictures taken as well.
Annika looking at the giant silver ornament (I think she looks SO pretty here, don’t you?)
Felicity and Kirsten 🙂
And last, but not least…
ALL of my girls together!! I absolutely LOVE this! I think I’m going to have it framed, hehe! 😀
Are you going to *take* your dolls to have Christmas photos taken?
