HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011! January 1, 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!! Yep, it’s officially 2011!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYA! My BFF Abby (you may know her as pepperlot, Abby@CCGA) spent the night tonight and we aren’t planning on going to bed anytime soon! Haha! We gathered in my mom and dad’s room and watched the ball drop. Then, when 2011 hit, we opened a bottle of sparkling grape juice and gave New Years cheers! Then, of course, we went outside and banged pots and pans. LOL. Then I had the crazy idea to get out the iHome (the thing you plug music into to make it loud) , plug it in outside, and play loud music! Hahaha we are so dorky but it was fun anyway. Now we are waiting for AG, who is as slow as an old man, to update their site! Yay! My dolls are excited, too. They had fun eating cake and watching the ball drop! 😉
Well, Lanie now feels like old news. Melanie and Rebecca (Abby’s dolls) are trying to cheer her up, but inside they are praying that Abby will decide to get Kanani. XD

Merry Christmas AGDC Dolls! December 25, 2010


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I hope you guys had a WONDERFUL day and that you got everything you wanted. Let us be reminded that today is NOT about Santa, presents, treats, etc. It’s about our Savior Christ Jesus being born in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. He is the TRUE reason for the season and why Christmas is what it is. Unfortunately people nowadays try to block that from us, saying how Christmas is about gifts or winter or whatever. CHRISTmas is about CHRIST, and we can’t forget that this holiday season. I pray that all of you and your families have a wonderful Christmas and Christmas break! (and to you guys up north, don’t take advantage of the snow! We don’t have any 😉 )

It was early December 25—Christmas morning. It was the day people had been talking about for months. The dolls were still asleep, dreaming about what the morning would bring.

“IIIIIITTTTTTSSSSS CCCCCHHHHHHRRRRRIIIIISSSSSTTTTMMMMMAAAAASSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” shouted Samantha on the top of her lungs.

“IIIIIITTTTTSSSSSS CHHHHHRRRRIIIIISSSTTTMMMMASSSS!” repeated Kit.

The girls got up and began jumping on their sisters to wake them up.

“What’s all this about?” asked an annoyed Kathleen.

“ITS CHRISTMAS!” shouted Kit in reply.

Poor Eva and Addy were getting stomped on by Samantha.

The rambunctious two soon awoke the whole gang. The girls had decided to sleep in their Christmas dresses, because for one, Madeline was too lazy to change them, and second, because they had been so tired after their Christmas Eve service and gift exchange that they just hit the sack. 

“Oh my goodness, sisters,” said Elsie. “It is again the day of our Saviors birth! Now let us go and see what treats Saint Nicholas brought!”

“Oh Elsie, you’re so old fashioned.” Samantha sighed. “PRESENTS FROM SANTA EVERYONE! LET’S GO!!!!!”

The girls walked quietly into their living room, filled with beautiful gifts. 

Delete caption“Santa” had eaten the cookies and milk and left a special note to the girls. 

Molly picked up the note to read it.

“Dear girls, Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! You all were very good girls. Thanks for the cookies and the reindeer food. Comet couldn’t get enough!
*Samantha – watch that mouth of yours. I don’t want you on my naughty list.

Merry Christmas!
Santa Claus

Next the dolls darted to presents. Unfortunately Madeline did not have time to wrap them like normally but the dolls were excited anyway. Kit and Sammi got into all the candy.


Felicity and Eva loved the clothes Santa brought them.

Felicity loved the crimson red color of Kit’s Christmas Dress and Eva loved the Cheerleading outfit and Diva nail stickers!

Julie loved the Rebecca Play Scenes and Paper Dolls and the Princess and the Frog movie she got.

Kathleen and Lulu were the first the open the stocking. They also loved the Rhema Marvanne CDs. She is the dolls’ favorite singer!

Josefina loved the Shirley Temple movie collection she got, with 14 features!

*Note the Shirley Temple autobiography in the background- I got that too (you can probably tell I love Shirley Temple). I am on chapter 3 and it is great so far! I’s a huge book though!

You can just guess the two girls who were ecstatic about the old-timey sewing machine.

It was a great morning in itself.

Just as Josefina was opening her dvd to see what disks were inside, a small piece of paper dropped out. It read:

“There’s one more gift yet to meet – Follow these clues, this fantastic gift can’t be beat!
Clue 1:
When I first got here, I had a look. Then a bubble bath I took!”

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!

An Adorable Video! And some other stuff! December 12, 2010

Hi guys! Well, as you know, I’ve just opened up a new site, so I’ve been working on that over the last couple of days, so I haven’t been doing much work on here. Bu today I have a couple exciting things for you, and an adorable video I found that I thought you guys would enjoy seeing. 🙂

1. I have been planning some really fun stuff for you guys that I have been working on this week and the past weekend. It’s a surprise, but I will tell you that one is a music video and the other is a slideshow based on a touching song. Since theses are so special, I will be posting the video on both Youtube and my site, and the slideshow on picasa as well as right here! You really want some clues? Ok, here’s a few (for the video):
• Features a song by 8-year-old Rhema Marvanne (I’m making a post about her soon and letting you guys get to know her soon!).
• Based on a true story (not the song but the actual video).
• About a girl who’s AAD is in the RUAMSY (unscramble!) Heehee! Oh, and in case your wondering, it’s not sad. LOL. In fact, it’s actually pretty peppy and fun.
And the slideshow…..well, it’s touching and based on soemthing that’s going through my life now. NOW MY LIPS ARE SEALED! LOL! Wait, if they’re sealed, how can I tell you #2? *unzips lips*

2. I am going to NY (the state, not the city, LOL) to see family and celebrate pre-Christmas with them!  We are leaving in a few days for the 13 hour drive (I REPEAT, 13 HOURS!) to go up. I’m so excited! I haven’t seen my cousins up there in 1 or 2 years! I’m so excited. We aren’t staying for actual Christmas, but you can bet everything’s going to be snowy up there! We might get up to 4 feet of snow- meaning we might be snowed in for an extra day or two! I haven’t seen that much snow in my life! But pray we can get home before C-mas..LOL. Right now, it looks like I’m bringing Julie and Sam, and I may make a photostory based on the preparations for the trip. What do you think? 😀

Heheee! NOW I can seal my lips as I show you this adorable video!

Heehee! Enjoy!
