Tell Us…Wednesday? ~April 23rd, 2014
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a Happy Easter!
Seems a little silly to have Tell Us Tuesday on a Wednesday doesn’t it? Well, we got a lot of great pictures of dolls celebrating Easter and I’m very excited to share them with you! 🙂

“Here are some collages of my dolls, Kirsten and Bambi, for Tell us Tuesday.”
Thank you all for sending in such lovely pictures!! They were all amazing!! 😀
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 😉
Have a great day!
P.S. Today is going to be pretty busy, so the voting for What Would You Name Her will hopefully be posted tomorrow.
Also, please pray for my brother, Jordan, he is having two of his wisdom teeth pulled today 🙁
How My Dolls Spent Easter
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?
Good Friday Photostory
Happy Good Friday Everyone! I’m so excited for Easter and it’s just in 2 days! Yay!
My dolls are having fun preparing for Easter in a bunch of different ways. Take a look!
Saige and Caroline are going through the outfits trying to figure out who’s gonna wear what on Sunday. Felicity is helping them decide.
Kanani and Marie-Grace getting the plates out for all the desserts and fun foods we’re going to have!
Josefina ready to pop the last batch of cupcakes in the oven.
Rebecca frosting the cupcakes! Don’t they look SO good?
Kirsten making Rice Krispy Treats! I love those!
“Josefina! You don’t have an apron on! You’re gonna ruin Rebecca’s dress!” Addy said, in her “older” tone.
“Oh, Addy! I’m fine! I’m putting the last batch in right now and then I’m done! I don’t need to put an apron on just for that!” Josefina replied, a little annoyed.
“Well, still. Next time put it on, ok?”
“Aye, yi, yi! Alright! Josefina replied once again- annoyed.
“I’m so excited for the egg hunt! I wonder what kind of candy we’ll get?” Kirsten wondered trying to change the subject.
“I don’t know, but I hope we get lots and lots! I hope it’s a beautiful day on Sunday!” Josefina said, getting very excited herself.
“Girls! Come on, gather round! I have something to tell you.” I said.
So they all gathered round and I made my announcement.
“Girls, I know you’ve been looking forward to Easter and the egg hunt, but it’s supposed to rain. So I’m afraid we’ll have to cancel the egg hunt.” I said feeling so sorry for my girls.
” Oh no! What will we do?”
“Will we still get candy?”
“I’ve been looking forward to it for so long!”
“My first Easter here and I can’t have an Egg hunt.” They all said and questioned. Then Rebecca spoke,
“I have an idea! Since we can’t have an egg hunt outside doesn’t mean we can’t have an egg hunt inside! There’s enough room so, why not?” She said trying to cheer up her sisters.
“Rebecca, that’s a wonderful idea!”
“We get to have an egg hunt after all!”
“You’re the best, Rebecca!”
Many hugs were passed to her that day! They were all so happy to get to have their egg hunt after all!
“It IS a wonderful idea, Rebecca! So now that that’s all settled- can we eat some cookies?” Josefina said in her silly mood. And everyone laughed and enjoyed the rest of the day!
Are your dolls doing any preparing for Easter today? Have you ever had an indoor egg hunt?
Have a great day everyone!!
Happy Palm Sunday!
Happy Palm Sunday everyone! I’m really excited for Easter, aren’t you?
My dolls and I are gonna have a fun week decorating and preparing for this fun time! My dolls (they are my “kids” when I play) are gonna have an Easter Egg Hunt so there will be a post on Easter!
Although my dolls (and I :)) love the candy, Easter baskets, egg hunts, etc. We must do our best to remember the TRUE meaning of Easter. It’s not about all that stuff- It’s about Jesus’ resurrection. And because He lives, we can have eternal life in Heaven!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Why are YOU looking forward to Easter? What do you do on this fun day?
