Felicity-Early Fall Photos September 27, 2009

Filed under: Doll Photography,Felicity,It's Fall! — Madeline@AGDC @ 10:48 PM

Hi! Thanks to everybody’s awesome Get Well Soon messages and thoughts, Felicity is again up and about. She’s got to take medicine for one week so that the sickness won’t come back, but she is ready to have fun.

Anyway, it’s that time of year again. The cool weather and falling leaves have  started. I am starting to see decorations for Thanksgiving and Halloween in stores. It’s FALL! It’s only early Fall, so no carving pumpkins or dressing up just yet. But Felicity went out to explore!

Felicity is sick! September 25, 2009

Filed under: Doll Health,Felicity,Kathleen — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:19 PM

IMG_0857“WAKE UP, LISSIE! TIME FOR SCHOOL!” Felicity awoke, but her eyes were still sleeping. It seemed like a struggle to get them to open. When they finally split, Felicity suddenly felt a chill and her head felt heavy. Her legs felt stiff. She groaned a little. “MoM…uH, cAn YoU uH, ooh..” 

IMG_0859Mrs.Merriman came over to feel her daughter’s face. “Lissie, how do you feel?” Felicity  felt hot, then cold, and hot, then cold again when her mothers hand touched her face. “Awful, Mom, but please! I need to go to school! Today is the day that one project is due, the one I have been working on ALL WEEKEND! I want to see my friends. I’ll…I’ll.. be fine…” But Felicity knew she was indeed NOT fine. The chills that once freezed her core were now a threatening burn. She felt week.

IMG_0861“No, Lissie. You feel hot, and I am not sending you to school.” Mrs.Merriman WAS going to take her child somewhere though. She wrapped a pink robe around Felicity and they drove to the doctor’s office. Dr.Montoyez checked Felicity then told the news. “Merrimans, Felicity has The Flu. I suspect that the flu germs got to her during school hours. I will contact the principal telling her about Felicity’s illness, and I will instruct her to tell the teachers to clean school items like computers, desks, chairs, and others. I will also put a bottle of hand sanitizer in the room so none other children will be infected.” Dr.Montoyez gave Mrs.Meriman simple  instructions to care for Felicity, and they left.

IMG_0868Mrs.Merriman set up Felicity’s room with proper supplies. A bell to ring if Felicity needed help, a wheelchair since Felicity’s legs were weak, a robe for Felicity to wear if she got cold, magazines for Felicity to read, and hand sanitizer to keep clean.

Felicity needs your help to get better. It will encourage her body to do that if you send her a “Get Well Soon” note. The notes will be presented by Felicity soon.

Kathleen at the Fields

Filed under: Doll Fun,Kathleen — Madeline@AGDC @ 1:01 PM

IMG_1368“Hi, Guys! It’s me, Kathleen. Today is a super-special cherry-on-top day! Madeline’s little brother Nick recently started Flag Football, and now we are going to one of the games! So fun, huh? I even might meet someone new!”

IMG_1369“Well, here we are! This is just a part of a giant field that is broken up into little ones. Well at least it’s GIANT to a little doll like me. Let’s see, they are doing practice right now so….”

IMG_1370“I’ll just play with this word search until a real game starts. OOH, FOUND A WORD!” 

IMG_1383“OOH, A REAL GAME IS STARTING! Hey guys,I am not the best at football but I could sure roll this soccerball out and we’ll play!”

Kathleen had so much fun. YES, we DID meet another girl who had Gwen the American Girl doll. I said “Hi!” to them but I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of Gwen and Kathleen “playing” together. Me and my mom also later in the day went to the christian bookstore to go to the Life Of Faith doll section. I got the first two Elsie Dinsmore books, and got an outfit that was apparently undergarmets but it look like an easter dress. It also came with pants so you could put the  pants on instead of the skirt and make them into pajamas!

IMG_1391“OOH, LOOK AT THE CLOCK! It’s time for bed. Let me change into my new pajamas.”

IMG_1395“Dear God, Thank you for this day. Thank you for everything you’ve given us, Lord. Please help everybody around the world. Please forgive me for my sins. Thank you. In Jesus name I pray, AMEN!”

Yesterday, I put everybody who entered my book contest’s name into a bowl, mixed it up, then let my dad close his eyes and pick one random one out. And that name would be out winner!!! Guess who’s name was on that piece of paper?
c5e8cd84d9523d456cb7843621ccce97e6de365dCONGRATS KAYLA! YOU WOOOON! You did not enter before Sep. 8 so you do not win an animal but you do get your choice of a bookmark for entering ON September 8.

I informed Kayla yesterday night. She has a week to reply and if she still does not say anything, I will put the names in a bucket and draw again. But hopefully that won’t happen. YAY KAYLA, CONGRATULATIONS!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
