Ok, I just have to say that I LOVE this week’s theme at Camp Doll Diaries [http://dolldiaries.com/horse-feeding-fun-for-you-and-your-dolls/]! It’s all about HORSES!!! If you know me really well, then you know that I LOVE horses and that they’re my favorite animal 😀
All of my “daughters” love horses, too, but three of them love them as much as me (which is A LOT!). When they heard what the theme was this week they were so thrilled!
All of the girls in Little Lilacs Cabin had just finished putting on their boots and were chatting away.
Addy- “Girls- May I have your attention, please?”
All of the excited faces turned to Cabin Leader, Addy.
Addy- “Thank you. Now, before we head off to the Stables we have some quick rules to go over. Rule #1: We want you all to have a “buddy”, so get into groups of two, please. Rule #2: When at the stables please be very calm and don’t be afraid. Horses can sense fear and if they do, it might make them a little jittery. Rule #3: Listen closely to what Cabin Leaders Saige and Felicity will be telling you. They will tell you all about the horses and how to care for them. Rule#4: Please control yourself. If one of you girls are anxious to pet the horse when it’s not yet time, please be patient. You will each get a chance to pet it. Is everything clear?”
Everyone- “Yes, Addy!”
Addy- “Good, then let’s head over to the Stables!”
After quite a while they reached the Stables. Saige was there to greet them along with Felicity.
Saige- “Hi girls! Welcome to the Stables! This is the sweet horse we’ll be looking at today. Her name is Penny and she is the perfect horse for any beginner rider. Please gather around and Felicity and I will tell you all you need to know.”
Saige and Felicity told them all about the tack such as- saddles, bridles, bits, horse shoes, and boots. They told them about the care supplies for horses such as all the different types of brushes, curry combs, fly spray, conditioner, and fly masks. They also told them how to treat a horse if they get hurt.
Saige- “And now I need a volunteer to groom Penny.”
Annika, who had never been around a horse before (although she loves them) offered excitedly!
Annika brushed through Penny’s mane until it was all nice and pretty. It was her dream come true to be around a horse 🙂
Felicity- “You’re doing very well, Annika!”
Saige- “She looks beautiful! Nice job!”
Annika- “Thank you!”
Felicity- “Why don’t you give her an apple for being such a good girl?”
Annika gasped- “Can I?”
Felicity- “Of course!”
Annika- “There you go, Penny. That’s a good girl.”
Saige- “Well, who’s ready to saddle up?”
And that is where we end Part 1!
So, how did you like it? Don’t you feel so happy for Annika? It kind of reminds me of myself 🙂
And in case you’re wondering you can see a couple of the things I made. I made some apples out of Model Magic Clay, I used Easter Grass for some hay, and the rest you haven’t seen- yet 😀
I hope you’re all having a great week!
Oh! and one more question- What have your dolls been doing at Camp?
Ugh! It is SO hot today- it’s like 108 degrees!! Isn’t that disgusting? I hate the heat, but I LOVE to go swimming in our pool! Annika hadn’t been swimming yet so she wanted to go for a quick dip 😉
Annika- “Hmm.. That’s a pretty big pool! I think I’ll just stay in the shallow.”
Annika- “Whew! The water felt a little cold, but it still felt great!”
After her swim she wanted to lay out and try to get a sun tan.
Aaaah… How relaxing 🙂
If you’re wondering where I got the chair my mom and I found it at Jo~Ann about a week ago. It was broken and on sale for about $4 and we asked if they would take the price down lower since it’s broken- we ended up only paying $2 for it!
My grandpa is so amazing, too! He fixed it for me- I love my grandpa 🙂
What do you like to do on a hot day?
Annika has been officially enrolled at Camp Doll Diaries today! She’s excited, but also nervous 😉
It was a beautifiul day at Camp today. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and birds were singing. Rebecca and Annika didn’t want to be outside much because it was too hot out. Some of the other girls went river rafting, others went riding, and a few more went for a hike. Rebecca asked Annika if she wanted to do a craft.
“Sure! That sounds like fun!” Annika answered. So they set off to the Crafting Cabin.
Rebecca- “Let’s make sure we’re going the right way. I’m still finding my way around here.”
The girls looked at the Camp Sign and found they were going the right way.
After walking a bit more they finally came to the Crafting Cabin!
Little Lilacs Cabin Leader, Felicity was running the craft table today.
Felicity- “Hi Rebecca, hi Annika! Want to make some decorative candles for your cabin?”
Both- “Ok! What do we need?”
After about 20-25 minutes had passed, the two girls had made some lovely candles.
Felicity- “Your candles look great, girls! I couldn’t have done better myself!”
Both- “Thank you, Lissie!”
Here’s Rebecca’s candle- she made an apple scented candle!
And here is Annika’s candle- hers is vanilla scented 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the post! These candles were so much fun to make and you can make them, too! Here’s a basic explanation on how to make it:
Cut a paper towel tube to a good size for a doll candle.
Cut a strip of colored fun foam to go around it and glue it on.
Next, trace the tube on a candle colored piece of fun foam and glue on your piece.
For the flame make some squiggles on fire colored fun foam. Cut it out and glue on.
Find some fun pom-poms and decorate! Use your imagination!
*Note- I used a hot glue gun for everything. Be very careful when gluing so you don’t burn yourself! Also, I glued on my pom-poms ;)*
The day I got Annika I went straight to my friends house to play with our new dolls. When we were leaving I noticed how beautiful their front yard was for picture taking. I just had to take some pictures!
I love this one! She looks so beautiful 🙂
Taking a walk through the yard.
Looks like she’s day dreaming- “Annika, can you look at me, please?”
“Thank you, sweetie.” 🙂
Picking some flowers.
She posed for a picture-
– And Cecile joined, too!
On their way to check the mail Cecile got a bit distracted, “WOW! What’s that?!?” Cecile exclaimed.
“Oh, it’s a basketball hoop!” Annika answered.
“It’s SO BIG!!” Cecile exclaimed again.
Cecile checking the mail 🙂
“It’s just my size!!” Annika exclaimed. She says she want to watch Narnia- Hehe!
“Cece! Get down! You could fall and hurt yourself!” Annika said.
They posed for their final picture. I think it’s so sweet 🙂
*Note- I am so shocked that I took my brand new doll outside and placed her on the ground!! I don’t know what came over me!! I must be coming out of my shell- Hehe!* 😀
This is a picture of the MAG that I am saving up for. What do you think of her?
Do you think she looks too much like Saige? This is something that has been troubling me for a long time but I really like her. Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn’t get her since I have Saige now. I’m really confused and don’t know what to do so any advice would be appreciated!
