Hi everyone! Merry Christmas!! 😀 Well, you know, day after ;D
So, I didn’t get a doll and I didn’t get any doll clothes or anything, but don’t worry! I am NOT growing out of dolls! My mom just did something different this year where instead of getting us all a bunch of things that we would like, she got us one big thing that we needed or wanted and wouldn’t buy ourselves, so I’m going to be showing you that one big thing I got yesterday! And on my other blog, LittleMissFluffet, I’ll be posting the rest of the things I got 🙂
So are you ready to see what I got? 😀
Okay, here we go…..
So, it’s a Nikon Coolpix L840 and it’s 16 megapixels!!! And the screen tilts which is going to be awesome for getting down on the ground and looking up at the doll and things like that 🙂
I am SO excited with my camera! It’s beautiful and feels amazing!! I can’t even believe I actually have a camera. I’ve wanted one for so long and it just amazes me that I actually have one now! Next up, a case and reflector! 😀 And also rechargeable batteries 😉
I can’t wait to show you all the photos I took with it! I’ll probably post it later today or within a day or two 🙂
What did you get for Christmas?
Ahoy! T’day be Talk Like A Pirate Day! Can ye believe that this here be the third anniversary of when I made me first swashbuckler photostory series?! Wish I’d known that TLAPD were comin’ up so soon. I had wanted t’start me next pirate series, but now it’ll have t’wait 😉
Okay, I’ll stop talking like a pirate now LOL! So today I have a lyrics photoshoot featuring Victoria and Jake! The song is “One Of Us” from The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride. 🙂
Evil as plain as the scowl on his face (I added in scowl 😉 )
Deception (an outrage!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
He asked for trouble the moment he came
And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us. Not our kind.
Someone once lied to us.
Now we’re not so blind
For we knew he would do what he’s done and we know that he’ll never be one of us
*sighs* So sad. Isn’t Jake horrible?! And awesome?! XD Well, you know, horrible then, awesome now LOL! 😀
Oh! So I got some new glasses yesterday!!! I’m really excited!! I’ve been wearing them pretty much since I got them! I don’t have to, but I do because I like them LOL! 😀
And also, I’m sorry about leaving you postless all week. There was just so much going on that I didn’t really have a chance to post. I will get the next part of Masquerade up this upcoming week! 🙂
TTFN! Ta-ta for now! 😉
“Don’t they look so good? That long one…. And-and the pink…. OOOH! AND THE CHOCOLATE!! Sorry, I’ve had a lot of treats today….”
Hi, it’s Jaclynn now! Oh, my gosh, it’s National Donut Day and Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts and I’m not eating one?? This is just sad. LOL!
Do you love donuts? What’s your favorite kind or place to buy donuts?
Happy Easter!! I’m so sorry that I didn’t post this yesterday. I was gone all day 😉 Well, let’s get on with my favorite reads!
I loved this post over at SimplyDollightful! I visited The Grand Canyon once when I was really little, but I hardly remember it, so it was nice to see some pictures of it. The photography is always so beautiful on this blog! Check out the post by clicking here 🙂
Emma did such a fun April Fool’s Day photostory this week! I’ve never really been good at pulling pranks, so it’s fun to see what other people come up with! 🙂
A new blog (for me) I visited this week was InnerStarStudios14. I really liked this photoshoot Marissa did of her doll, Alexandria 🙂
I was also recommended to visit MissMollyFriends. She has really nice and realistic pictures, and although she hasn’t posted for a while, this was still a favorite read of mine this week! Her dolls playing Twister is just so cute! 😀
I hope you enjoyed my picks this week! If you have a doll blog you’d like me to visit, or if you have a favorite doll blog you’d like me to check out, leave a link in the comments below! I’m always interested in visiting new doll blogs 🙂
I hope you all have a great time celebrating with your family and friends today! And remember that today isn’t about The Easter Bunny and Easter eggs (even though it’s fun 🙂 ), it’s about Jesus’ resurrection. Because He raised, we can be saved from our sins and have eternal life 🙂
“God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only son. Anyone who believes in Him will not die, but will have eternal life. God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world. He sent His Son to save the world through Him.” John 3:16-17
Have a blessed day! 🙂
When I woke up, I completely forgot that today was St. Patrick’s Day! I was glad I was wearing a green shirt when I got up LOL! 😀
So, I took some pictures of Jenna and Merida today, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day 🙂
Don’t they look so cute? I love Julie’s Patchwork top on Jenna! 😀
Here’s an overview of Jenna’s outfit. I think the red flats look so great with the outfit 🙂
And of course, here’s my feisty, independent, Merida! I just love the expression on her face 🙂
I had to put a green bow in her hair so she wouldn’t get pinched by her older brothers or Julie. They are quite the pinchers 😉 😛
“Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!” The toddlers will watch VeggieTales “The Sumo of The Opera” today since it has a short story in it that tells about St. Patrick’s Day, and the rest wanna watch Brave, since a few of our newest family members haven’t seen it yet 🙂
What will you and your dolls do today? Will you eat corned beef and cabbage?
Have a great day! 😀
Hey everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day! I took a little photoshoot of Kanani dressed for Valentine’s Day and I think she looks adorable! 😀
I hope you guys have a nice day! 🙂
WOW! I can not believe that tomorrow we will be in 2015!!! This year went by SO fast for me and I know the years will only go by more and more quickly. I’ve seen a few blogs do a recap on their year, and I thought that would be fun to do! 🙂

Happy New Year’s Eve!!
Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!! Oh, my gosh, can you even believe that tomorrow is Christmas?! I definitely can’t! It seems like it came up way too quickly, and yet it also feels like it’s taken forever to get here LOL! 😛
Today, Annika, Cecile, and Kiara did some Christmas decorating 🙂
“Oooh! I’m so excited to decorate with you guys!” Kiara exclaimed.
Cecile took out a bag and opened it up.
“Look at all the decorations!! I had forgotten about some of them!” Cecile said excitedly.
I then set the tree in place and said, “What do you all think of decorating the tree first?” Annika and Cecile giggled because they had forgotten how large the tree was in comparison to them. “Wow. That’s HUGE! But it’s SOO pretty!” Kiara said, staring wide eyed at the tree.
Annika loves Christmas trees, so she got started right away on fluffing up the branches.
Kiara had joined her, but Cecile walked over, holding up the tree skirt. “Hey, what about the tree skirt?” Cecile asked. She loved putting the tree skirt on!
“That comes after we fix up the branches, Cece, but you can have the job of putting it on!” Kiara said with a smile.
“YAY! Thanks!” Cecile exclaimed.
Soon the branches on the tree were all fixed up, so Cecile crawled under the tree and fastened the tree skirt.
“Oooh! Does this go on the tree?” Kiara asked as she held up some pretty pink garland. “Yep! I love this garland so much! I’m so glad mommy bought it!” Annika said happily.
I trimmed the top of the tree with the garland, and once I had finished, Kiara began working near the bottom. “Now it’s time for the ornaments!” Annika exclaimed.
Kiara picked out a pretty blue ornament and placed it on the tree.
Annika picked out purple, since that was her second favorite color. 🙂
And Cecile grabbed a red one, to match her dress 😉
“Now it’s time for the candy canes!” Annika said, with a candy cane already in hand. Soon, all the decorating was done, but wait, there was still one thing missing…
Since Annika and Cecile had each placed the star on top before, they told Kiara to do it this year 🙂
Then they all stood back and gazed at the pretty tree.
Now here are a few Christmas pictures by the tree 🙂
Merry Christmas, everyone!!! 😀
What are your plans for Christmas? Are you hoping to get a new doll?
“Hey, Caroline! What’s all this?” Saige asked as she entered the kitchen.
“YAY! I told myself that the first one to enter the kitchen would get to help me, and it looks like you’re the winner!” Caroline said excitedly.
“To help you do what?” Saige asked, still confused.
Caroline grinned and said, “Do you wanna build a gingerbread house?” Saige laughed at her sister’s Frozen reference and said, “Okay!”
Just as Saige reached for a gumdrop Caroline yelled-
“WAIT! You have to put on an apron!” Saige was so startled that she jumped! “Why?” She asked breathlessly. “Because whenever you cook in the kitchen you should wear an apron! Plus, they’re just fun to wear.” Caroline smiled.
So, Saige grabbed the apron and tied it on.
“Now we’re ready to get started!” Caroline exclaimed.
Saige and Caroline worked for a long time on their gingerbread house until….
They were at their last two gumdrops, so they each put one on at the same time.
Then they stood back and admired their work. “It’s so beautiful! I’m glad I was the one who got to do this with you, Caroline. It was a lot of fun!” Saige said with a smile.
“It sure was!” Caroline smiled back.
I hope you enjoyed the story! My craft fair ended yesterday, so there will be a post up about that soon! 🙂
Have you ever made a gingerbread house?
