Bring Me a Package ~A Photostory
Hey guys! I have a fun little photostory for ya’ll today featuring the doll with the mystery name… I’ve decided to reveal her true name for you all at last because this has just been ridiculously long… XD See, I was going to buy McKenna and have her be her twin sister, which I still plan to do at some point, but let’s start using Jane’s real name, shall we? 😉
‘Twas six days before Christmas and ornaments elegantly adorned the Christmas tree…
Presents wrapped with care had been placed beneath the tree…
And decorations were scattered all throughout the house.
On this particular day, a girl sat on the loveseat motionless. Listening. Waiting.
Her head snapped suddenly at the sound of a truck outside that sounded very much like the mail truck.
Without a moment’s hesitation, she had leaped off the couch and dashed out the front door screaming; “THE MAIL IS HERE!!”
Her sisters, Saige and Rebecca followed the screams outside, bewildered by the sight they saw.
The screams had stopped and they found Mariah standing as still as a tree. “Uh, Mariah, are you okay?” Saige inquired.
“Wait.” Mariah said as she watched the mail carrier intently, waiting for her to come up and hand her a small brown box addressed to Mariah Johnson.
Rebecca and Saige joined her side now, looking at her quizzically. “Mariah? What are you doing?” Rebecca asked. Mariah let out a disappointed gasp as the mail carrier returned to the truck.
“WAAAITT!!! COME BACK!!” Mariah screeched. Her sisters held her back as she dashed forward.
“Mariah, what on earth is the matter?” Saige asked. Mariah whimpered and kept saying; “No. No. No.”
“It didn’t come…. I’ve been waiting for days…” Mariah said with a sniffle.
“What was it?” Rebecca inquired.
“A gift from my pen pal…,” Mariah said.
“Oh, Mariah, it’s okay. I’m sure it’ll come soon. You shouldn’t be so upset, though,” Rebecca said sweetly.
“BUT SHE ALREADY HAS MINE!! I WANT MY PRESENT! IVE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY!!” Mariah screamed.
“I know it’s disappointing, but really, you’ll get it soon, I’m sure. You just have to take your mind off of it,” Saige advised.
Mariah sighed and bent over dramatically.
“You’re right. I’m going to go hermit,” Mariah said, turning toward the house.
Saige and Rebecca watched their sister walk groggily back to the house and noticed just how pitiful she looked in her bare feet pattering against the cold concrete.
Mariah wrapped herself in a soft Christmas blanket and sat in front of the tree, staring blankly at the presents.
“What is life anymore…?” Mariah mumbled.
“Mariah! A package just came!” Saige announced with a smile, but Mariah just leaned back and closed her eyes with a sigh.
“It’s probably for someone else, Saige. My package was coming in the regular mail,” Mariah said.
“No, they came back! She said she missed it in the truck. It’s your package!” Saige explained.
Mariah’s eyes jerked open. “WHY DIDNT YOU SAY SO?!”
Mariah leaped up and ran past Saige so fast, she fell to the floor.
Saige remained on the floor, groaning inwardly at her insane sister and could hear her screaming, “GIMME MY PACKAGE!!!”
I hope you enjoyed! I had fun making this story. XD
People, I actually went out front to take pictures. And guess what?! A FEDEX GUY CAME AS I WAS TAKING PICTURES. So I looked back and he was looking at me quizzically so I gathered my dolls and hurried inside. Then a little bit after I had to go back out and set them up and start again. XD THEN the regular mail came by again and since it was a woman I was like – eh, whatever. So she came up and handed me the package and asked if one of my dolls was Grace. I thought that was kinda cool that she knew what my dolls were. XD
Do you like getting packages?
MERRY ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!
November Recap ~ 2016
Hello, my friends!! *waves* 😀
Okay, so I know it’s already December 9th (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN), but I just really wanted to post one of these! XD
I have never done this type of post before, so just bear with me. Let’s see if I can make this interesting… XD
Highlights of November:
Doing NaNoWriMo and SUCCEEDING!!
It was really hard for me to keep up and fell behind a lot, but in the end I succeeded and that’s what matters right? I ate quite a bit of dark chocolate to help me through it… XD
Getting the professional wedding pictures!
AGH!!! They’re all SO beautiful!! I’m planning to post a bunch on LMF, so be on the watch for that 😉
When we got these pictures in literally all my mom and I did was look at them all day long. The photographer did an AMAZING job!
Getting to see my family do worship together <3
I don’t know if any of you know this already, but my family is quite musically talented. My dad has been a worship leader for years and he taught my brother, Jordan to play guitar and he served on the worship team for a long time, as well as Aaryn, my new sister in-law who sings beautifully! And my brother in-law plays the drums, so it was really awesome to get to see them all play together – they do an amazing job! It was super special this time because it was the last time for who knows how long, before Jordan and Aaryn moved away… <3
YES! *happy sigh* it was so awesome doing the Hillside craft fair again. Though there was rain, freezing cold, and major winds, we did have a lot of fun and the last day was perfect in every way! 🙂
Having my first latte from Starbucks!
I’ve been hesitant to try a latte for a long time, just cause I’m super picky and I love my frappés, but I finally gave in and I totally loved it! Even though I almost burned my tongue… XD
Sleeping over at Emma’s and cracking up at her insanity.
This night was just – BIZARRE! Emma was out of control crazy and I was laughing at her like all night! XD The one thing I don’t understand is how exactly does she drink from a water bottle so creepily?? LIKE HOW?! XD
Being creeped on by Emma The Insanely Creepy the entire time at Hillside.
No joke, I literally look over at her booth (we’re right across from each other, as you can tell in the picture) and she’s staring at me like this!!! And I don’t know, is she part Indian or something, cause she’s always sneaking up on me and I’ll turn around and she’s there staring at me with this creepy face!! XD It’s creepy, but hilarious. XD
Bundling up in a tablecloth at Hillside.
IT WAS FREEZING!!! It was raining, windy, and just – FREEZING!! My mom and I both wrapped ourselves up in tablecloths and put on hats, hoods, and scarves – we were cracking up! XD
Though this was a great day and we were all happy to be together, it was really bittersweet and not all of us were our normal, happy, crazy selves. This was our last family gathering together before Jordan and Aaryn moved away and saying goodbye to them that night, though it wasn’t our last goodbye, was extremely painful. 🙁
Saying Goodbye to Jordan and Aaryn.
My mom, dad, Jen, Jason, and I went over to say goodbye to them Friday night, the day after Thanksgiving. I can’t tell you how much we all hugged and cried. And though it was one of the hardest things, saying goodbye to them – I realized also how beautiful it was. That we as a family could come together with the freedom to cry and embrace like that over “losing” 2 beloved family members. I know it might sound silly that we were all crying so much, especially since they’re 6 hours away and I know some people have family even farther away – but we’ve always been together and we love each other so much. It was really hard to say goodbye, but I think we’re all doing a lot better now. <3
– Posting more often! I’ve really missed posting here, on LMF, HRMW, and on TEROW, so I’m really hoping that this month I can get a lot of posting done! 😀
– CHRISTMAS!!! No, no, this year it isn’t for the presents that I’m so excited (though I am excited for that, too… XD). This year I’m excited for Christmas because then our whole family will be together again! 😀 <3
– Work next week!! You all remember me saying that I got a job working in childcare, right? Well, we went on break and I thought I wouldn’t get to go back until January, but thankfully we get a day next week! I MISS THE CHUBLETS!!! XD (I can feel Emma glaring at me right now…. XD )
– Rogue One! ANYONE WHO IS EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE PLEASE SAY SO! My sister and I are the only ones in our family who are excited for it. O_O
– Annndd… I can’t think of anything else right now. I’m just excited to see what else this month has in store for me! 😀
What about you? How did your November go? Is there anything you’re looking forward to this month?
Christmas Haul 2014!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Well, one day late anyways 😀
I had such a nice Christmas yesterday! I had a good time with my family, eating food, opening great gifts, and playing Super Smash Bros! 😀
I received a lot of awesome dolly things for Christmas, so I’m going to show you what I got!
I got the Rodeo Shopping Outfit from TheQueen’sTreasures from one of my brothers, along with some really cute black boots! I am so in love with leather jackets, and I have wanted this outfit ever since I saw it on DollDiaries because it came with a leather jacket!! All of the pieces are GREAT for mix and match, and I know that Eli will probably be wearing the shirt and jeans occasionally 🙂
Just look at how adorable that jacket is!!! OMGOSH it’s SO cute!!!
The boots are really nice! I’m sure I’ll be using these for some of my pirate costumes 😉 They are super easy to get on and off, and they use a zipper to close up. So nice!
I LOVE these jeans!! The color of them is great!
I LOVE this outfit! It’s absolutely adorable and it looks so good on Saige! I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! 😀
I also got the Paint Filly from my oldest brother!!! She’s SO ADORABLE!! I have always wanted her, so I was really happy to open her! I haven’t had time to decide on a name yet, so that will be announced soon 🙂
Saige is keeping an eye on her. She’s so tiny!
Awwww!! What a sweet face!! She’s going to need a really nice name! 😀
My parents got me Addy’s Plaid Summer Set! It is really adorable and I’m just obsessed with that pinafore!
The pinafore is really ruffle-y and has two pockets. You can also see the color of the dress better in this picture- it’s pink and brown!! One of my favorite color combos! 😀
The boots are really cute, too! They tie on 🙂
It also came with a huge hairbow! Who doesn’t love big bows? 😀
Felicity looks so pretty in this outfit! I rate it a 10 out of 10! 😀
I got the Easy Breezy Outfit in my stocking! I’ve wanted this outfit ever since it came out, so I’m really happy to have gotten it! The colors are so cute and I really like halter tops! 🙂
The print on the top is so cute!! It’ll be great for spring and summer! 😀
I love the shorts, too! And the pockets!! I’ve always been a person who just shoves everything in my pockets, so pockets are kind of a big thing for me LOL! 😛
And of course, the shoes are adorable! They match the outfit perfectly and they are also easy to get on 🙂
I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! 😀
😀 😀 😀
I got MAG #61 from my parents!!!! She’s SOO beautiful!!! I named her Jenna and her middle name is Faith. I believe her and Samantha will get along really well since they both love fashion! Jenna also likes music and hair styling! She will be added to the Meet My Dolls page soon, so you’ll be able to learn all about her! 😀
And my sister also got me the Bright Stripes Outfit!!! I can’t tell you how much I love this!! It’s a BLAZER!!! I am also obsessed with blazers by the way LOL! 😛 The blazer is such a nice quality! It buttons in easily in front. I forgot to take a picture of the shirt, but it is also super cute! It says “Be smart, be strong, be YOU!” It also comes with a little headband that velcros at the top. So cute 🙂
The jeans are SO cute!! They are a little hard to get on, though. I think Jenna’s legs might be a little larger than normal, but I’m not sure… I still need to experiment with that 😉 😛
Look at these shoes!! They’re so adorable!!! 😀 I rate this outfit a 9.5 out of 10 because of the jeans 😉
Now for a photoshoot of Jenna! 😀
Look how pretty her hair is!! It’s so bright!! Her hair is the same style as Annika’s, but I’m trying to make it a different type of curl by finger curling it. I think it’s really pretty! 😀
She is SO photogenic! If it wasn’t so windy and cold I would’ve taken a ton more pictures of her!
Doesn’t she have such a sweet face? Her eye color is so pretty!
Yes, another hair shot 😀
It was SUPER windy outside and I was trying to get a picture of the wind blowing her hair, but for some reason it wasn’t blowing when I wanted it to…. 😛
Well, that ends this post! I’ll be posting a comparison of Jenna, Saige, and Felicity later today, so be sure to check back! 🙂
I LOVE everything I got for Christmas SO much!! I will be posting the non- doll related items I got on my other blog, LittleMissFluffet if you’d like to see 🙂
Now, I would love to know what you all got for Christmas!! Any dolls? Doll clothes?? Please tell! 😀
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! 🙂
Christmas Eve Decorating!
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?
Sugar and Spice
Caroline set a plate full of yummy candy on the kitchen table.
“Perfect!” Caroline exclaimed as she looked at the beautifully set table.
“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?
Girls- I am going absolutely insane right now! I am a VERY indecisive person, so when it comes down to which doll I wanna ask for, for Christmas- I just about die! 😛
I am having SO many problems trying to decide between Isabelle or MAG #61 (who will be named Jenna)!
I want both of them SO badly! I’m pretty sure I want MAG#61 more, but here’s my problem:
Although I want #61 more, I’m afraid that if I get her for Christmas, I’m going to regret not getting Isabelle since she won’t be available anymore. And I also really want Isabelle, so I’m just like- URGH!
AND if I get Isabelle for Christmas will I be disappointed I didn’t get #61 first even though I can buy her on my birthday just 2 months later?
Advice, opinions, and HELP would be greatly appreciated right now! 😀
Just a Random Pic ;)
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?
