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?
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! 😀
To see the previous part, just scroll down a post 🙂
As we walked through the small village, a little girl with red pigtails came up to me. “Excuse me, can you help us?” The little girl asked softly and shyly. I looked around for a mother or a father, but there was no one around. “Help you with what?” I asked kindly.
Then another little girl with big blue eyes came up beside the other girl and stared up at me.
“Where are your parents?” I inquired.
The two girls glanced at each other with sadness behind their eyes. I wanted to help them, but I couldn’t if they weren’t willing to be open with me.
A young lady began walking by us and I stopped her. “Excuse me, miss, do you know these children and where they live?” I asked her.
The lady looked at the children with pity and then back at me. “They’re orphans. They have no home.” She whispered.
My heart ached for these kids. They were so young and sweet, I couldn’t imagine them living on the streets. “There isn’t an orphanage here?” I inquired.
“No. The stewardess doesn’t want to spend the money on building one. She doesn’t care about anyone or anything, except for money. They are only a couple of the orphans here, there are many more.” The lady replied.
“Well, can’t the people here pitch in some money to build one?” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, or even, why doesn’t anyone give them a place to live for now?” Corinne asked.
“No one can afford anything like that. The taxes here are sky high. Folks around here barely have enough money to buy supper for the table.” The lady explained.
Another lady walked by us and stopped, gazing directly at me. “How dare you wear clothes like that here! This is absolutely inconceivable!” The woman shouted. Then Corinne mouthed the words “You should’ve worn the dress.” at me. I just sighed and shrugged it off.
“I’ve never seen you here before. Who are you?” The woman asked with suspicion.
“Y- you’re the lost princess?” The other young lady stammered.
“Yes, I am. And I want to help restore the peace and happiness of this kingdom.” I stated with a smile.
The other woman laughed and said, “Good luck with that, dearie. The palace guards wouldn’t even let you enter the palace. And even if they did, the stewardess would deny you as the lost princess.”
“Yes, I will do everything I can.” I replied boldly.
She gave me a hopeful smile and said, “Then go. The sooner this kingdom is restored, the better.”
As I was walking past her, she stopped me. “I have to tell you that the stewardess is insanely stubborn and obsessed with ruling. She will not easily give up the throne to you.” She warned.
“Whether it’s easy or not, really doesn’t matter, because I am taking back the throne no matter what. But thank you for the warning, miss.” I said gratefully.
That’s the end of this part! Next part coming soon! 😀
“Well, I’m gonna go get a cupcake.” Kristoff said, raising to his feet.
“So, do you think Rebecca’s petition worked?” Annika asked her sister.
“Mommy definitely seemed to be considering the idea when we gave it to her. I really hope she listens to it, though! It would be so good for Eli, and Kristoff, too!” Jess said hopefully and Annika nodded her head.
“Kristoff I already told you, ask mommy if you can have a third cupcake and then I’ll give you one.” Jess told her little brother. “But, she’s probably busy!” Kristoff protested. “Kristoff, just go ask her!” Jess ordered.
“What’s goin’ on?” Eli asked Annika who shrugged her shoulders. She was just as clueless as he was.
After a few minutes, Riven-Delle came in the room with a huge smile on her face. “Annika, Jess! It worked! The petition we all signed, you know? Mommy listened to it!” Riven-Delle said so quickly that it was hard for Annika and Jess to understand what was going on.
“Oh, my gosh!! A new brother AND sister?! We expected a brother, but oh my, what a surprise to get another sister, too!!” Annika squealed. “My name is Annika, and this is Elijah, but we call him Eli, and there’s Kristoff and Jess.” Annika continued, pointing to each one.
“It’s nice to meet you! I’m Julie and I’m 12. I heard about the petition you all signed for mommy to get Eli another brother. That was really nice of you guys!” Julie said with a smile. Eli smiled broadly in shock when he heard this. Only a few weeks ago, Eli had been wanting a brother more his own age. He had told Riven-Delle about it, so he guessed that she must have told everyone else. He was so blown away and extremely appreciative to all his sisters.
“Hey, Eli! Hi Kristoff! You already know this, but my name is Dallas. I’m 10.” Dallas introduced himself to his new brothers.
“Hi.” Kristoff said shyly.
“I love video games! Hey, lemme show you my little bedroom corner, as I like to call it. You’ll probably be sharing with me now!” Eli said excitedly.
“So where do you come from, Julie?” Annika asked her new sister. “I lived at an orphanage in San Francisco. Dallas was there too!” Julie replied.
“Oh, how magnifique (mah-nyee-feek)! I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco! Have you gone across the bridge?” Riven-Delle wondered.
“Oh, yeah! I’ve gone across the bridge a few times!” Julie said with a smile. She was happy that someone was interested in what she had to tell about San Francisco.
“So, how did mommy come to adopt you?” Jess asked.
Julie smiled and said, “Well, as she was waiting to meet with Dallas, I was sitting right next to her, waiting to meet some other people who wanted to adopt me, but that didn’t end up working out. Anyways, her and I were talking a lot, and well, we just felt a special connection. So after she had spoken with Dallas, she talked to me some more, and asked if I’d like to come live with her. And I agreed whole-heartedly!” Annika sighed. “That is so sweet! I’m so glad you came to live with us, Julie!”
Riven-Delle placed her arm around Julie and said, “I am, too! Well, we should all go in the living room with the others and get to know Julie and Dallas a little
EEEEEE!!! I LOVE JULIE SO MUCH!! She arrived today and I am DYING!! I bought her when she went on sale for $55 with her pajamas!!! I just love her so much!!! 😀
Speaking of Dallas, here he is!! My parents got me a used Molly for my birthday so I could change her into a custom boy doll!! I think he’s so cute! 😀
Isn’t he so cute?! I just love him! Oh, and his middle name is Peter 🙂 And do you know what this means?!?! NOW I CAN MAKE MY PIRATE SERIES!!!! EEEEEE!!! 😀
Do you have Julie or a custom boy doll?
Oh, dear! What am I going to do with Anna and Merida? Yesterday they did something pretty sneaky….
“Are you sure it’s okay to be out here?” Anna asked. “Yeah! The door was open, so we came out! If you don’t wanna be out here, then go inside.” Merida replied.
Merida walked off and Anna stood there watching her.
“Well, the door was open…” Anna said to herself, then hurried to join her sister.
“You wanna climb this slide?” Merida asked excitedly.
“I don’t know… Prob’ly not.” Anna said, unsure if I would be okay with that.
Anna and Merida walked around the yard for awhile, then finally they stopped and just stood.
“Merida? Are you mad?” Anna asked, breaking the silence.
“Everything fun I wanna do, you’re saying no to.” Merida replied with a tone of annoyance.
“I like fun, but I don’t know if mama would want us to do those things.” Anna explained.
Merida hung her head down and didn’t say a word. “Merida?” Anna asked.
Merida swooshed her head away from her sister. “I’m sorry, Merida.” Anna said sweetly, but Merida didn’t move.
“Do you wanna play hide and seek?” Anna asked. Merida turned her head slightly with a little smirk.
“1….2….3….4….” Merida stood by a pole and counted to ten.
Anna found a place to hide and giggled. “She won’t find me here!” She thought.
“HERE I COME!” Merida yelled.
Merida walked around, then she tilted her head…
“FOUND YOU!!” Merida yelled from across the pool. Anna laughed and laughed.
Anna ran over to her sister, still laughing. “How’d you find me?” Anna asked. “I saw your hair!” Merida replied.
I realized that Anna and Merida were nowhere in the house, so I decided to look outside. “Anna, Merida, what are you doing out here?” I asked firmly.
Anna hung her head down and Merida stared to the side with a smirk.
“Anna, do you want to tell me what you’re doing out here?” I asked gently, but Anna shook her head “no”.
I sighed and looked over at Merida. “How about you tell me?” I asked. Merida’s smirk grew bigger, and I knew, by the look in her eyes, that I was in for a very dramatic (and not true) story…
Do you have any sneaky “kids”?
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?
Jake went over to Captain Coronado to thank her again. “I can’t tell you how grateful I am to ye.” Jake said.
“Aye, I know ye are. Twas the least I could do.” Captain Coronado replied. Then she reached into her desk and pulled something out of it…
“Here, I want ye to have this. It will bring ye wisdom. But, ye must promise never to take yer eyes off it! Any evil pirate would die fer a special item as this.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Thank ye. And, aye, ye have my word.” Jake promised.
“Now then. Ye best get prepared for battle. Blackheart will have heard of what I done and I’m sure she’ll be comin’ after ye with ships and cannons. Ye must be ready.” Captain Coronado stated.
“Aye, we’ll start preparin’ for battle right away.” Jake said.
I had been talking with Siara, but as soon as I heard Jake mention battle I turned my head towards him. I didn’t want to have anything to do with a battle. But since Jake thought it was best, I knew it was only right for me to follow him- whether I liked it or not.
Meanwhile, Blackheart was on the hunt for me and Jake. I knew she would not rest until we were back in her cells.
“Captain Jones! Captain! Captain!” Blackheart’s deckhand called. “Aye, what is it?!” Blackheart shouted. “It’s a note! It’s about The Code!” The deckhand explained. “WHAT?!” Blackheart yelled furiously and snatched the note from his hand.
The note said: “Code number 12 has hereby been terminated by Captain Coronado- The Keeper of The Code.”
Blackheart exclaimed in disgust. She threw the note to the ground and squished it with her foot.
“YOU! Bring me some paper NOW! I have me own little note I need to write. Thar troubles are far from over…” Blackheart ordered.
“Aye, Cap’n!” He said and scurried off.
“Victoria, we have to be prepared to defend ourselves!” Jake stated. I had been talking with him about the battle. I know I had decided to follow him, but I just didn’t want there to be any battle.
“I know, but perhaps we could try reasoning with her first!” I said.
“Uh, ‘scuse me, but while ye were talkin’ a bird dropped this here note. Ye might wanna take a look.” Siara said.
Jake read aloud: “As Captain Blackheart Jones’ second in command, I regret to inform you that Captain Jones is dead. Ye are now free from her wrath. Captain Reed.”
“What? Sh-she’s dead? But how? What on earth happened?” I was in a state of shock. It didn’t make sense to me that she died.
“It don’t say what happened. But as the note said- we don’t have to worry ’bout her fighting us anymore.” Siara said. I know that Blackheart was evil and mean, but I still felt sad that she died.
Jake was staring at the deck. “I don’t know. This doesn’t make sense to me. Blackheart is the best pirate around. It doesn’t seem likely to me that she just died. Ah, well, I’m sure it’s true. We did get a note from Captain Reed…” I walked over to Jake and said-
“Yes, Jake. It’s all over. We may finally live and sail forever- in peace.”
Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday!! First I have to say that I won’t be posting the Grand Finale of Fire Cove today because I have to do some errands with my mom, but I will hopefully have it up tomorrow! 🙂
Now, shall we get started? 😀
“Here is Kit,modeling a headband I made for my etsy shop!” Submitted by Grace AG Lover
The last few photos are from C-
“My recent thrift shop finds! There is a store near my house that is known for having shelves full of dolls! If anyone could help me identify them, that would be great!”
“This is one of my finds! I paid $2 for her! I think she is an Ariel Animator’s Collection doll.”
“I also found this Madame Alexander doll for only $4. She needs a lot of help. Her head is super wobbly and her limbs are too. The number on her tag reads 32009 004403. If anyone knows what doll she is or if it is possible to tighten her limbs and head let me know!”
Thanks for sending in your photos, girls! 😀
If you’d like to participate in next week’s Tell Us Tuesday, here’s how it works:
You send in a picture of your doll(s) (the most you can send is three pictures) through my Contact Form with a description. Please remember to attach the image(s)! Also, your images must be 2MB or smaller (please not too small, though) otherwise the Contact Form will not allow you to send in pictures 😉
I hope you all have a great day! 🙂
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?
So, today me and my mom were out doing errands and all of a sudden she said, “I have a feeling to go to the Thrift Store.” and I said, “Oh, my gosh, can we go?!” And we stopped off at the Thrift Store!!
We looked through all of the bins and I found a few dolls (not AG). One was an adorable Precious Moments Doll, but I decided not to get her because she would end up just sitting on a shelf and would never get attention. And then I found a Disney Animator’s Collection Rapunzel Toddler Doll! I kinda wanted to get her, but she wasn’t really calling to me. Then I found an 18″ Madame Alexander Doll. She was only $4.99 and I really wanted to rescue her. So when I was checking out the total ended up being $2.70!!! It turns out that all yellow tags were 50% OFF!!
I feel so bad for this doll. She’s definitely “A bit of a fixer-upper” ( 😉 )!
She has big round marks on each of her cheeks. It looks like highlighter to me.
Her hair isn’t in the best condition, but it’s not too bad.
The shirt she’s wearing is from American Girl! Anyone know what outfit this is from?
On a couple of her finger nails there’s what also seems to be pink highlighter.
I took a picture of her Style#. Do any of you know which doll this is?
I’m really excited to have my first doll rescue and to fix her up! I hope I can get her looking nice and pretty again. Well’p, it’s time for me to get to work! 😀
Have you ever rescued a doll?
