American Girl Doll Central Christmas Party December 23, 2009

Filed under: All Dolls,Christmas or other Winter Activities,Doll Fun,Life Lessons — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:59 PM

The AGDC dolls bursted into the hallway. Still snug in their Bible costumes they hugged and congratulated each other of how good they did in the Christmas play. Laughter and relieved sighs filled the room.
“You were SO good!!”
“I’m glad that’s over! It was so fun!”
“Do you think the audience liked it? Do you think The Lord liked it?”
“I think everybody liked it!”

Every body started to take off their costumes. Head pieces were thrown to the floor and girls began taking their hair out of buns. They chatted with their best friends and gathered up their modern clothes to change back into.

Even Felcity’s horse had the jitters of excitement; playing the horse Mary rode on to Bethlehem. That was a big part for a young mare. Felicity tried to calm her down. She grabbed hold of the reins and pulled them towards the ground a little. “There’atta Girl!” Felicity said. “There’atta my girl!”

Molly had to yell a little above the excitement and quick chatter. “Everybody! Can I have your attention please! Ok,” she began. “After everybody is done chcnging out of your costumes and done handling and fixing up the stage, everyone please change into your Christmas dresses and meet me. Ok? We are going to have a Christmas party!” The girls listening to Molly cheered, they all liked parties.

Everyone quickly obeyed Molly. The twins, Elsie and Kathleen, were the first to get their dresses on, the ones they were planning to wear for Christmas. Elsie chose her yellow party undergarmets then over that chose her floral flannel skirt great for fall/winter, with the matching jacket. Elsie was straightly imported from 1850, so therefore her clothing choices were always like this. Now, only 2 dolls of AGDC were actually modern dolls, but all the other historical dolls had gotten used to modern life immediantly. But Elsie could not be broken. She believed that this was the modest way to dress, and the way the Lord would be pleased with her wearing. Although she did not find in sinful in the way her modern sisters dressed, because it was not innapropriate according to nowadays, and they believed it was modest. Kathleen chose her sister’s underclothes and turned it into a nice dress with a big Christmas bow around her waist. Josefina let Kathleen borrow her necklace, and Kathleen promised to take care of it, while pulling her hair into a bun.

Samantha and Molly were next. Samantha wore her white gown and tied a big Christmas bow around the waist, similar to Kathleen’s. Sam also chose to curl her hair, then to finish it off, she tied a green mistletoe bow in her hair. Molly  wore her famous green Christmas dress with stockings and buckle shoes, then tied a white bow in her hair on the side of her head.

Lulu and Felicity Merriman had picked out nice-n-festive outfits. Luluhad chosen a penguin shirt and blue-striped leggings. She tied a big blue bow in her hair. She also had a snowmen hat, not shown in this picture. Felicity chose formal pants and a shirt displaying “My first Christmas” and a reindeer, although this was not truly Felicity’s first Christmas, but her second one. Her creativity showed in her hairbow. She had put two bows together they tied them as one in her hair. One hairbow was green with tiny Christmas trees on it, and the other was red-and-white striped like a candy cane.

Kit and Addy were next. Addy had chosen an outfit similar to Lulu’s, a red snowman shirt with red-and-white striped leggings. Over her braids she wore a Santa Claus hat. Kit wore a red sweater and a blue wool skirt that belonged to Molly. She wore tights and boots, and her sweater displayed, “Merry Christmas!” She had a lilly-pad style bow in her short blonde hair.

Eva Grace and Josefina were last to show off their outfits. Eva Grace wore Josefina’s camisa and skirt along with a Christmas bow tied around her waist instead of the original tie-around. She also wore her best butterfly earrings; made by Madeline; and shoes and socks, and wore her hair down. Josefina wore Felicity’s shift with a giant blue Christmas bow around the waist, blue Asian-styled slippers that belonged to Eva Grace. She took the beads out of her dreadlock braids and tied her hair into a bun. Her golden earrings shone in the sunlight coming through the windows.

Next was craft time. The girl’s craft was paper ornaments, and everybody went quickly to work.
A working buzz filled the room.
“That’s pretty!”
“I’m going to make a snowman ornament.”
“Please pass the glitter, Elsie. Thanks!”
“Would you hand me those scissors?”
“Look at what I made!” exclaimed Addy after a few minutes. She held up a 3-D Christmas tree with silver tinsel glitter. The glitter shone brightly for all to see. The girls ‘OOOOOHHHHed’ and ‘AAAAHHHHHed’ at the ornament and clapped for their sister’s creation.


After a few MORE minutes of cutting and gluing and coloring and creating, Elsie held up two ornaments. “Are you fond of mine, sisters?” She asked politely. The girls clapped and cheered or her candy cane and 3D Christmas ball ornaments.

After everyone was finished, the dolls laided out the ornaments to let them dry. Next the girls had milk and cookies to celebrate and talk about Christmas time.

In the middle of the snack, Kathleen came up to Elsie. “You know, twin sis,” she said. “This WOULD be a perfect time to do your thing.” Elsie looked confused. “What do you mean, twin sister?” Kathleen put her soft and on Elsie’s shoulder. “Twin sis, I mean WHEN are you going to tell them what Christmas is really about. There all here, not doing much. It would be a great time. Plus, on Christmas day, they’d know REALLY why we celebrate.” Elsie  nodded. “Ok, twin sister. I will do so. Thank you for encouraging me.” Kathleen smiled with her perfect, beautiful white teeth, something she hardly ever did unless she was REALLY happy or proud of her sisters. “Great. I’ll do the introduction, to get you started. Elsie, my twinny, you’ll be glad you did it.”

Kathleen stepped tot he front. “Ladies and gentle girls, I give you, the amazing, moving, adorable girl, my very own twin sister, Elsie Rebecca Dinsmore!!!!! She has a very important message for all you today!” Everyone cheered and clapped and Kathleen sat down near the front.

Elsie cleared her throat and went up. “Um… Hello, everyone… it’s um, me, Elsie Dinsmore, your sister-in-Christ AND by doll.” Then, there was a click in Elsie’s brain and she got more comfortable. “Have you ever wondered..” she began. “What Christmas really is all about? Have you ever wondered where it came from? Why it’s a holiday? Why it is such an impact?” There was a ‘yes’ and some ‘MMMhhhmmmm’s coming from the crowd. There was a hand as well from Kit. Elsie pointed at the hand. “You think you know? Tell us.” Kit cleared her throat. “Um… Isn’t it because a holiday we give? A holiday of giving? And being thankful?” Elsie tilted her head. “Partly, partly. But not the true reason. Did you know that Christmas is a-very-special-someone’s birthday?” Guesses rose from the dolls.
“George Washington’s?”
“Madeline’s?”
“Yours?”
Elsie shook her head. “No, someone greater. He came to earth and died on the cross for you.” Kit’s hand FLEW in the air and she shook it wildly. “I know! I know! I KNOW!!!!! JESUS!” Elsie nodded and clapped her hand. “Good job, Kit!” Then she turned back to everybody. Christmas is all about Jesus Christ’s birthday.” Addy raised her hand. “Is that why it’s called CHRISTmas?” Elsie nodded and clapped. “Great, Addy! Your correct!” Addy blushed and tilted her head. Then Elsie went on. “Jesus, the greatest King of all Kings, was born in a dusty, unhealthy stable in the small, busy town of Bethlehem. His main company were some shepherds, his earthly parents, and later wise men from the east. He was bon in not a crib but a manger, a feeding trough for animals.” Samantha raised her hand. “Like our play!” she said. Elsie nodded and clapped. “JUST like our play. How about I read from Luke?”

“Luke 2:1-20. And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from  Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. And Joseph also went tup from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; because her was in the house and lineage of David: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that will be for all the people. For unto you born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly hosts praising God saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which has come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying the manger. And when they had seen it, they made know abroad the saying which was told unto them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God. for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.” Elsie finished. There was a loud clapping and cheer from the crowd of dolls.

Josefina raised her hand. “That was WONDERFUL, Elsie! Now I truly know what Christmas is about! Thank you! But, why do we flood Christmas’s true meaning with presents and trees and candy? It distracts people from the true meaning.”

“True, Josefina. They sometimes can But that wasn’t the intention. You see, most Christmas traditions and symbols have a lot more to do with Christmas then we think. This Candy Cane, here, was created for the benefit of Jesus, according to legend. A german candy maker wanted to create a candy that pointed to Jesus. Then he came up with the candy cane, well known around the holidays today. The candy is hard, to represent that Jesus is our Rock of Life. The shape of the candy cane was 2-in-1. Tilted upwards, the candy cane is like a shepherd’s staff because Jesus is our shepherd and we are his sheep. Tilted upside down, the candy cane symbols a J for Jesus. The flavor is peppermint, which is similar to Hyssop, which was used a long time ago for purification and sacrifice.  The red stripes are representing Jesus’s blood. Sometimes smaller, thin red stripes are added to show the stripes from when the Roman soldiers whipped Jesus because of OUR sins. Sometimes also green stripes are added, to show that Jesus is a gift from God.” There was a cheer for the audience and suddenly it seemed as Candy Canes were signs of Jesus. Which they were, by the way.

“A Christmas tree is also a  sign of Jesus. One of the reasons these kinds of trees were chosen as Christmas ones was because they ‘point’ to heaven, where Jesus is today (not to mention here with us. He is everywhere, and even in your heart if you let him in). Tree toppers symbolize Jesus or the Nativity as well. Stars represent the one that shone on Baby Jesus; the one that led the Wise Men to him. An angel shows the one that told the Good News to the shepherds; and the one that watched over Baby Jesus.”

“What about presents?” asked Samantha. Elsie nodded. “Yes, presents. What about presents you may ask? Partly what Kit said. Christmas is  a time for giving and thankfulness as well as the birth of Jesus. Why, though? Jesus is behind it. It is believed we give presents like the Wise Men gave their most precious gifts to Jesus, as well as others did. God also gave His precious gift, His only son Jesus. Jesus was a gift from God. It is fun to receive presents, sit around the Christmas tree, and eat Candy Canes, but we can’t forget what they really mean.” Everyone cheered not only for Elsie but for Jesus. This would truly be the best Christmas ever.

Everyone gathered around the tree and sang Christmas carols and prayed that everyone would receive the best gift ever-Jesus Christ.

I hope you all have a very MERRY and BLESSED Christmas and that you ALL receive the great gift of Baby Jesus!!!! Comment and Rate!!!

Join us tomorrow for Christmas Eve and the next day for Christmas Morning! Thank you ALL you guys for everything. You are truly awesome.
Love, Madeline and her 10 dolls (plus Maggie!)

Happy Hanukkah! December 13, 2009

Filed under: Christmas or other Winter Activities,Doll Fun,Holiday,Kit,Maria Kit,Mia — Madeline@AGDC @ 5:52 PM

“Hi girls!!!” shouted Kit as she bursted through the door to the room of Madeline’s friend, Meghan. It was also the very place her very best friend Kit Maria and her sister, Mia, lived. Mia greeted her with a “Hi, Kit!” and hug and Kit Maria greeted her best buddy an even bigger one. “I can’t believe your here!” Said Kit Maria. “Yeah,” agreed Mia. “We were so happy when Meghan said you were coming to celebrate Hanukkah with us!” Kit clapped her hands. “Yay, Hanukkah, Hanukkah! I LOVE Hanukkah……….um, what’s Hanukkah?” The girls smiled. “Well,” began Mia. “You know, Kit, we are not only Christians like you but also Jewish. Around the time before Christmas we celebrate a Jewish holiday called Hanukkah. It’s about a miracle.” Kit smiled. “Ooh, I like miracles!” Kit Maria laughed. “Uh-Hu, and there is so much fun stuff to do. Eat yummy traditional food, play games, light the menorah, and more! Soon, the humans will let us come down the stairs when every thing’s ready. You wanna see our Christmas tree?” Kit nodded, excited that she had come on a special night.

The three girls walked over to the shimmering tree in the corner of the room. “Isn’t it pretty!” Mia asked. “It so is!!! It’s very big and pretty and festive.” Kit Maria smiled. “I know, right?” Then there was a call from down the stairs. Mia grabbed one of Kit’s hands and Kit Maria grabbed the other and they raced down the stairs. “It’s time!”

The food wasn’t quite ready, so the girls sat in a circle in a corner where they could show Kit their favorite Hanukkah toy and game. “THIS is a dreidal.” Said Mia. “It’s a toy you play at Hanukkah and I am the best at it.” She joked. “I’m telling the truth. I’ve even beat all the humans in the house.” Kit and Kit Maria ‘OOOHHHed’ and ‘AAAAAAHHHHHed’. “How do you play it?” Kit asked. “Here, I will demonstrate.” Mia held the stick on the top of the dreidal between her thumb and pointing finger, then spun it. It landed on the floor and spun, spun, spun, for what seemed like forever. Then, it stopped, landing on it’s side. “What is that letter thing on the side?” Kit asked. She picked the dreidal up and saw that on every side there was a different one. Kit Maria was to explain. “That’s Hey, Shin, Gimel, Nun.” she said. “You see, Mia’s dreidal landed on Gimel. You see, If we were playing the real game with gelt, she would get ALL.” Kit smiled. “Cool!”

Mia got up and ran to a different room. “Don’t worry about her.” Kit Maria said. “She’s just crying because she didn’t beat her record.” Then a “No I am not!” came from the room Mia had ran into. She came back out with two more dreidals and gave one to each of the other girls. “No, I was NOT Kit Maria, I was being NICE and getting you a Kit a dreidal so we could play together. So you better watch your mouth, sassy, or you will not have a HAPPY Hanukkah.” (Then a “MIA! APOLOGIZE!” came from the room the humans were at.) Mia looked Kit Maria apologetically. “Ok, I’m sorry, Kit Maria.” Kit Maria didn’t look up from her dreidal, which was spinning like crazy by Kit’s.  “It’s ok, Mia. Now join in!” Surprisingly, a new person had one the dreidal contest this year. It was Kit! As the dreidals spun, Mia and her sister’s bumbed into each other and collapsed, while Kit’s still spun. “Great job, Kit! Both other girls congratulated her.

Soon, it was time to eat. Kit looked at her plate reluctantly. “Um..” she mumbled, as Kit Maria and Mia gobbled down their Latkes in less than a second. Mia looked up. “Kit, are you not hungry?” Kit tried to talk, but Kit Maria interupted. “Oh, she has a rare case of ‘I-don’t-know-what-this-food-is-so-I-am-just-going-to-put-my-napkin-over-it-and-throw-it-away-and-pretend-I-ate-it-and-be-hungry-the-rest-of-the-night disease. Kit laughed at herself but stopped. “But I don’t!!!! What even is this stuff?” Mia put her hand on Kit’s shoulder. “This STUFF,” she said. “Is the very best food ever.” Kit shrugged. “I’m not feeling it.” Kit Maria gasped. “But you have to TRY it, Kit. If you try it, you’ll like it, but if you do not, you’ll never like it.” Mia agreed and said, “Here, we’ll tell you what it is. See this stuff that looks like fried rice or something here on the right? Those are Potato Pancakes, we call then Latkes. You eat them with sour cream or apple sauce, or just plain.” Kit took a bite. “Why, it’s actually very good! What’s this over here?” Kit Maria pointed. “Well that’s just a roll and some chicken, but over here we have what’s like a dessert. It’s a Jewish traditional food called Kugel.” Kit took a bite of it, and enjoyed her Hanukkah meal. Now she had a new list of favorite foods.

Kit picked up a bag of what looked like golden money. “What in the world is this?” She asked. Kit Maria took the bag from her. “This,” she began, “Is Gelt. They are little golden coins we use for Hanukkah. But this is actually Chocolate Gelt, so it’s edible. Just take the wrapper off before you eat it, LOL.”

“Wow, can I have some?” asked Kit. “Sure,” said Kit Maria. “And, you may also take your own bag of it home to share with your sisters. We have plenty.” Kit smiled. “Wow, thanks!…..Mmm, it’s good!” Mia smiled. “I’m glad you like it.”

“Now, it’s story time.” Mia said, sitting down with a book. Kit and Kit Maria sat down around her. “OK, we will read about Hanukkah.” She began. “Once there was a small group of Jews called the Maccabees. There was also a bad king called Antiocus. Antiocus wanted the Maccabees to pray to his gods but the Maccabees wanted to worship God as they pleased. They went away and hid in the hills. When the time came to come back, they were so upset. Their temple was in ruins! The bad king had let his soldiers use it as they pleased, and they destroyed it. The Maccabees worked hard to make their temple great again, but then their was a problem. There was not barely any oil. They needed the oil to make it a place of prayer. There was not even enough to light the menorah!!! But then, the miracle happened. God used the tiny bit of oil and it was used for 8 whole days and nights! It was a miracle! They praised God! It was amazing! Now, Hanukkah lasts for eight days, just like in the story. We still light a menorah with eight candles. We cook our Latkes with oil to help us remember, too!” Kit Maria and Kit clapped. “Wow,” said Kit. “That’s a great story. God used that oil and it was a miracle! It reminds me of a story Elsie told us once, about Jesus and the bread and the fish! He used it to feed over 5,000 men!” Mia smiled and put the book down. “Exactly. How about we go light the menorah now?”

An they did that.  The menorah was very pretty and shimmered like he Christmas Tree. “We always do a special prayer when we light the menorah,” said Kit Maria. “But how about we let Kit try?” Mia agreed. “Ok,” Kit said. “Here I go. Dear Lord, thank you for this day and everything you’ve given us. Thank you we can come together and have special celebration for what you did. Thank you so much.  Help us to remember to be more like you. We love you. In Jesus name, Amen.” Everyone clapped, and they let Kit light the menorah. It was a very special time. The girls played with their dreidals more, and Kit Maria and her sister let Kit keep her own to share with her sisters. They ate some dessert, and it was a happy time. But soon, it was time for Kit to go home. “Bye!” she said, and hugged her best friends. “Bye!” they said back. “We hope you had a great time!”

From the car window, Kit stared back at the house. She had had so much fun and learned a lot. Then, she saw in one window,  a menorah lit. And what were those figures behind it? Kit peered closer. It was Kit Maria and Mia! “Bye!” Kit could here faintly. She saw the wave of their hands. “Bye!”

Eva Grace and Julia Have a Play Date December 10, 2009

Filed under: Doll Fun,Eva Grace,Julia,Our Friends and Their Dolls — Madeline@AGDC @ 9:41 PM


Eva Grace woke up one Saturday morning. She got dressed and ate breakfast, then simply sat down in her room. “What should I do today…” she mumbled to herself. Molly and Lulu were taking Kit out to get leaves for her project due on Monday, Kathleen and Addy were STILL asleep, Elsie, Josefina, and Samantha were reading together for a little book club they formed on Saturday mornings, and Felicity was over at a friends house. The only doll who didn’t have ANYTHING to do hardly was Eva. She COULD go over to that girl Maggie’s house right across the hall (right across the street in doll form), but Eva a little scared to. Finally, though, she had an idea.

“Julia?” Eva Grace barely knew how to use a people phone, but this was Madeline’s sister’s old one, so Eva Grace thought no one should mind. But she got it working. “Julia? Yes, Hello. It’s me, Eva Grace. Yeah, that’s cool you are going on a vacation over winter break! Well, anyway, I wanted to ask if you want to come over? Ok, I will let you ask your mom……Ok? She said it’s fine? Ok, I’ll be waiting by the front door. Love-ya-like-sister! Bye!” Julia was the doll of Madeline’s neighbor, Abbey, and one of Eva Grace’s BFFs.

Soon there was a knock on the door. “Yay, Jules!” Eva Grace greeted her friend. “How do you do,  Miss Eve Gray?” Julia greeted in return, curtsying in a funny way. “So, come on in!” Eva Grace said, closing the door behind them. “Hey, girl!” Julia said, pointing to Eva’s shirt and skirt. “Love the out!”  Eva Grace glanced at herself then at Julia. “Yeah, we ARE wearing the same thing, LOL! Come with me, we’ll go to my room.” Then the two heard an, “OUR room!” coming from another place in the house. “Just my sissies!” laughed Eva Grace.

“So, how are you? Julia asked. “I’m fine, you?”  said Eva Grace back. The girls sat down and chatted a little and laughed that they had worn the same outfit, not on perpose. The girls thought about what they should do. Julia suggested, “How ’bout you do my hair? Then I’ll do yours.” Eva Grace laughed. “Hair Stylists it is!”

Eva started on doing Julia’s hair. First she brushed, and brushed and brushed. Did I mention she brushed?

“Wow! Braids! I love them, Eva Grace! I didn’t know you could braid. It looks great! Now it’s my turn to do your hair.

Another marathon of brushing, brushing, brushing.

Julia put Eva Grace’s hair in a silly, funky style. “Wow, Jules!” Eva Grace giggled, stray hairs flying in her face. “Thanks, this is quite the style!” Julia laughed. “You know I’m no super star at hair, you can take it out if you’d like, Miss Eve Gray.” Eva shook her head, not wanting to hurt her friend’s feelings. “Oh, no, Jules. It’s fine. I like it. Now what should we do next?”

Next up, the girls looked at the American Girl Doll catalouge. Eva Grace wants the Ivy’s New Year Dress fir Christmas, and Julia likes Julie’s room accessories.

Soon, it was time for Julia to go home back to Abbey. “Bya, Jules Girl!” Eva Grace said, hugging her best friend. “See ya, Miss Eve Gray!” Julia said back. The girls hugged once more and exchanged some terse conversation, then departed.

When Julia had shut the door behind her and left, Eva Grace scrambled to her room and squished down on the carpet and tugged out the rubber band in her hair. “How silly Julia is!!!!” She said. “How silly and crazy and funky and creative and tomboyish she is….

But I love her!”

Meanwhile, beck at Julia’s house in her room….

“How silly and calm and creative and fashion-y and pink and GIRLY Eva Grace is!” Julia said. “But I love her anyway!”

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas-Decorating the Tree November 29, 2009

Filed under: All Dolls,Christmas or other Winter Activities,Doll Fun,Holiday — Madeline@AGDC @ 6:57 PM

It was the exact day after Thankgiving, and Christmas was beginning to sprout. Lulu, Molly, and Kit were the first to notice. First, they had heard on the human’s radio that Christmas music would play on the radio after Thanksgiving. Then, they saw that Madeline’s blog had a new Christmas style. So did her YouTube channel. And now, Madeline had placed a big mystery box by her bed. It was red and green, and the three girls were sure it had to mean it was Christmas again. Lulu, Molly, and Kit sang Christmas songs by the Hang-Out Circle, where the 7 other girls sat and talked. “Sing with us!” Kit said in the middle of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” She pulled Ea Grace’s hand. “It’s Christmas again!”

“What makes you so sure?” A tired Eva Grace said as she lay  in the middle of the circle. “I haven’t seen a trace of green or red around. I mean, besides you three and your crazy costumes.” The dolls surrounding Eva Grace seemed to be on her side. “Besides,” said Addy. “Thanksgiving’ was only yesterday, and I ain’t ready for another holiday so soon!” The other dolls with Eva and Addy buzzed in agreement. Kit knew that her sisters were only tired from yesterday, staying up late and eating pie and all. Kit knew they didn’t truly mean to hurt Kit’s feelings or say what they thought  so harshly. But she felt a boil inside her and felt the determination to prove that the littlest sister, the baby in the house was not always wrong. Kit was determined to get her sisters to think straight, the way things were.

Kit marched over to the box Lulu, Molly, and she had examined earlier.  Kit couldn’t read, she didn’t know how yet. And since Lulu and Molly had never seen one of these, the reading didn’t help them. Molly had just click her fingers saying, “Oh, I seen one of these! The humans use them on Christmas. Uh, I dunno what they are called. Uh…” But now all 10 girls gazed at the box Kit leaned against. “Is it a Christmas present for us, maybe?” Kathleen asked. “I am not trying to sound greedy, but it looks like… WAIT! There is a note for us on it. Read it, Mols.”

Molly looked closely at the note. She read it aloud to the others. “My Girls,” she began. “I have laid out my personal little Christmas tree to you. Decorate it and take care of it. Then,  I am giving you my permission to tour the Christmas spirit through the house! Love, Madeline.” The girls were quick to open up the box. But they were dismayed to find what was inside.

“Aww!” the younger girls sighed. “It’s just a plant!” Kit said. “It looks boring! Let’s  just put it back in the box and tell Madeline we don’t want it.” The girls were disappointed, but most did not want to let go of their special treat, at least, that’s what Madeline thought of it. “Um?” said Felicity. “Check the directions? Maybe you press a button and it dances and sings or something.” Samantha and Josefina were already checking the box. “No directions. Just a bag full of little toys, I think. “Toys?” Kit jumped up. “Maybe that’s what Madeline wanted us to have. Maybe she was just trying to trick us and let us find the surprise for ourselves!” The girls “yayed” in hope. Elsie did not. “Why do you care so much about toys?” she asked. “I mean, they are wonderful and I would love a new doll for Christmas, but is toys what Christmas is about to you girls?”  She looked like she was about to start a story of what Christmas really was about, but she couldn’t get anyone’s attention. Some other dolls agreed with Elsie and spoke harshly to the girls who said they would certainly die if Madeline did not get them the Mini-Rebecca American Girl Doll for Christmas. But Lulu and Molly hushed them. The girls realized they had been out of the whole conversation. “Everybody!” Molly called. “We’ve figured out that this is a Christmas Tree, and what it is for is it is a pretty tree that you decorate with these little toy-like things called ornaments.” Then she nodded to Lulu. “Yeah,” Lulu said. “Then, you plug it in the wall, and the whole thing lights up!” Now the girls got excited that this plant turned out to be no plant after all. At least, not a boring one.

Molly and Lulu laid out the ornaments on the ground in front of the tree. Lulu explained what the plan was. “Ok,” she began. “Everyone gets to pick two ornaments to hang on the tree. Please no shoving or pushing. When it is your turn, you may pick up your two ornaments and hang them wherever you want on the tree.” Molly smiled at the little blonde-haired, freckle-face girl standing beside her. “And we’ve decided that Kit gets to put on the tree-topper, since she is the youngest. Kit grinned and hugged Molly.

Before anyone chose and hung their ornaments, Molly put the lights and wrap-around on the tree. Then she invited everyone to start the fun.

Eva Grace was first. She chose the delightful reindeer Clarice from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Then she hung up a little snowman.

Next, Josefina and Samantha went up together. Josie chose a a little green and red heart with a bell at the bottom, and Samantha chose a red one that was similar. And what other ornament did each girl put on? 😉

Sam and Josefina were fascinated by the fact that Madeline actually had ornaments with theirs and Kirsten’s face on it! Well, not exactly ORNAMENTS, but little magnets that stuck to the pot the Christmas Tree was in. Josefina and Samantha laughed at the little magnets with their faces on it!

Felcity chose a Clifford the Big Red Dog ornament. along with a Rudolph ornament that was supposed to go with the Clarice one Eva Grace chose.

Addy went for the ones that looked homemade. She claimed they reminded her of home. She picked a buttoned mitten and a little heart. As she placed them on the tree, the heartwarming little cloth ornaments made the tree shine even without the lights on.

Elsie picked hers carefully. She picked up a little angel with a pretty face. It reminded her of the First Christmas, a story she hoped she would have time to tell. Elsie also picked a little wooden reindeer, with a red collar and green belt. It was lovely to her.
She got up and put them on the tree.

Next, it was Kathleen’s turn. She picked the two twin baby angels and green mittens.

Lulu, a little more sporty, chose a Carolina Panthers candy cane, and also a little ornament version of the Oak Island Lighthouse.

Kit had proudly chosen hers.  First thing, she had grabbed the tree topper angel, and as her sisters chose their ornaments, she picked out a miniature snow globe. It would look like it was really snowing if you shook the little glass ball!

“Come over here, Margaret Mildred!” Molly said to Kit. Kit smiled. Molly was her very first sister, and the very first doll of all of AGDC. Kit admired Molly even more than she did Lulu or any of her other big sisters. Molly was kind and funny, and went out of her way to protect and entertain Kit and her sisters. Kit had always wanted Madeline to buy a doll her own age, but the only dolls ever welcome were older than Kit. Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Eva Grace, Samantha, Kathleen, and Elsie were 9 or 10 years old, and Lulu was about 12. Molly was 12, too, and Kit loved Molly so much. Kit loved ALL her sisters the same, but Molly was still special. Now, Molly lifted up Kit on her shoulders and the little 8 year old put on the tree topper and everyone cheered.

Now it was time to stare back at the girl’s creation. Fun, colorful ornaments mixed with the warm, heartfelt homemade ones. The girls smiled.

This is what the tree looked like in the back. Marvelous!

Now Folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! The tree lit up like a star. Wow, it was incredibly beautiful. 🙂
From the back of the tree, lit up.

An American Girl Doll Central Thanksgiving November 27, 2009

Filed under: All Dolls,Doll Fun,Holiday,It's Fall! — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:11 PM

“OK, everybody! Settle down, settle down! Everyone stand back!” Molly McIntire was trying to push off 8 excited girls off her. Molly was the leader of AGDC, and they decided that she should run the Thanksgiving Feast, as long as Addy helped her cook the food, since Addy was the best cook in the dollhouse. But since Molly was running the feast, everyone had questions and everyone quickly decided that she would them with buttoning their nice dresses or help them on their “Thankful” acrostic for school.

Lulu finally helped Molly line them up in a line. “Ok,” Molly began. “Today is Thanksgiving, and we are going to have a better one than we did last year. Don’t even make me remind you. Thank goodness Madeline didn’t have a blog back then, where she can show us to the world. No. This year’s will be inspirable. You here me?” The dolls nodded and raised their hand to their forehead in a salute. “Ma’am, yes, Ma’am.” Molly nodded. “Ok, then, recruits. Everyone dress in a nice outfit, a dress or skirt outfit. If you need help zipping or buttoning, go get Lulu. She’ll help you. Then I want everyone to retreat to the main doll dining hall, A.K.A. Madeline’s living room. Now everyone pledge.” The dolls nodded . “My country tis’ of thee, sweet land of liberty, of the I sing! Land where my father died, land of the pilgrim’s pride! From every mountain side, let freedom RING!”

When they got there, Molly and Addy cooked good food and decided to make a buffet of it so it would be easier and more organized to get everyone’s food.
Yum! But before anyone could get their food or eat, they gathered at the table.

Molly spoke. “Ok, is everyone here? Good job, recruits. Before we eat, let’s do devotions and have prayer. Kathleen and Elsie, will you help us out?” The twins nodded, excited to take such responsiblity.

Kathleen began with a word from the Word.  She found a very nice verse for the occasion in Psalm. “Enter His gates with Thanksgiving,enter His courts with praise.”

Everyone bowed their heads and closed their eyes, and Elsie began to lead the prayer.

“Oh, Father in Heaven. Thank you for this day, for our friends and family, and I thank you for everyone in this room, O Lord. Thank you that we can come together today to feast on food you gave us. Please help us to remember that today is the day that we serve you and thank you. We thank you for sending your son and all you’ve done. Help us to remember that. Bless others with us. Guide us through the day and help us to be more like you. In Jesus name, and everybody said, ‘Amen'”

The dolls started down the line, each picking a piece of food from each plate.

From the back of the line.

All the dolls sat down and enjoyed an great feast!!! Then Elsie had a great idea.

“I know!” she said. “How about we all go around and say what we are thankful for? I will start. I am thankful for, as I said before, that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. God gave his only son for me. He died for me,a sinner! I think that is just something to praise the Lord for. Kit?”

“Um… I am thankful for my Molly and Lulu and all my big sisters. I love them all so much for protecting me. For loving me and making me food and tucking me in bed and caring for me. I am thankful for my mommy Madeline. I know some dolls aren’t as lucky as me. Their mommies sell them on ebay bare, cold, and messy-haired. But I have clothes, I am warm, and my hair is brushed and neat. All because of my mommy and great sisters.” Everyone went “Aww.” when they heard this.

Addy was next. ” I am thankful for freedom.  I am thankful that I am a freed girl and I know what it is like to be locked up and treated like a work animal. But now, I can fly and I am free and I live in a free nation. That is what I am thankful for.” Felicity was next. “I am thankful for ability. I have two legs and arms that help me run and play freely. I have eyes that see clearly, ears that hear delicate music and pounding, a mouth that will talk and eat food. My nose can catch and ring up thousands of different smells. Some children don’t have all of these abilities.

Molly started hers. “Like Kit, I am thankful for family and friends. I am in a grand home with humans and fellow dolls that love me and keep me safe. You all mean so much to me. And Madeline, she dresses me and feeds me food and does that most creative fashions in my hair.  I love her. And I love all of you. I love my family and friends, and that is what I am thankful for. Josie, you may go.” Josefina smiled. “I am thankful for color and creativity. I am thankful for a world I live in, where nobody is the same. Every country, city, and family have different traditions. When I step out of the house, I hear voices of children, see a blue sky and sunshine,  and smell great things. My friends and even family members are all different. I am also thankful for education, where I can grow up to be the woman I want to be, and I hope that God will guide me in my path.”

It was now Samantha’s turn to say what she was thankful for. “I am thankful that I have things I need when I need them. I have a bed when I am tired, food when I am hungry, medicine when I am sick, family and friends around me when I am lonely. I am never really needy. God has blessed me. I am also blessed with things I am not in need of, but I am fortunate with things I also want. I have games and toys and more clothes than ever when I only really need one outfit.  I am in a wonderful wold, and I praise God for it. Eva Grace, it is your turn.” Eva Grace smiled an sat up. “Well, OK.” she began. “I am very thankful for water and clean clothes and food. Not much people here realize that clean underwear and warm socks would be only a dream to some people in other countries. And the only water some kids every see is the dirty water with trash floating all in it. I am thankful for that everyday I wake up to brush my teeth in clean water. I can take baths in clean water. Drink it, water flowers with it, use it for pleasure and more. I am thankful for this wonderful home and all of you guys.”

Next it was Lulu’s turn. “Ok, first of all, let me say this has been a wonderful time with you guys from the day Madeline  took me out of that box. I love all of you. I am thankful for what we are eating right now.  A FEAST. A BIG, blown-out FEAST. And this is only a third of our meals each day. You know how much this would mean to a girl in Kenya, where I came from? They have to walk miles for a handful of dried rice. And that’s all they have for that day, everyday. But we all have more than a Kenyan girl could imagine in one plate. And we all have our own flavored refreshments. I am thankful for food and water.” Kathleen was last but not least for saying what she was thankful for. “I am thankful for everything. But I am thankful for you guys. We could be stranded in the middle of Africa or the streets in China and I would feel the exact same-happy, as long as I am with you girls. You mean the world to me. And my twin sister, Elsie. I love you so. I am also thankful for food, water, clean clothing, ability, creativity, education, family, friends, big sisters, freedom,  and salvation. Folks I could stand here all night naming things I am thankful for, thanks to you. Thanks.” Everyone cheered for everyone. This was a special time. “Ok,” Molly called cheerfully. “Let’s all get a family photo!”

Elsie’s Biltmore Adventure – Part 1 November 15, 2009

Filed under: Doll Fun,Elsie,Fun Places to Visit — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:17 PM

Hi! I made took these pictures to make a photo story during our fall break in October. One of the main reasons we went there was to see the Biltmore House. But there were also so many other things to do! But anyway, I chose to bring Elsie. I hope you enjoy! Here’s Elsie!

IMG_1858 “Hello! Today is a very special day! I am in Madeline’s car with her and her family.  And oh, may we be in here for the next few hours! We are going to Asheville, and we are going to the Biltmore! Oh, how wonderful it shall be!

IMG_1860Madeline and her brother and sister brought many things to do for the long ride. Madeline is sharing with me.

A LITTLE LATER:
IMG_1861 “Look out the window! (Madeline, get your camera!) That’s a mountain! Isn’t it pretty! Surely it means we are close to our destination!
IMG_1864IMG_1869After some hours of driving, Elsie and Madeline and the rest of the family found their spot.

IMG_1870“Ok, here we are at the hotel! Unfortunately, Madeline and her family are going out again to walk around and eat and get dessert and just look around. I’m not allowed to come because I’m a doll and it might be too busy and crazy being 18” and everyone and everything more than twice your size. So I have to stay here. Sigh.

IMG_1871“See the nice view?”
IMG_1872IMG_1875

IMG_1873“Ok, I guess it’s time to kick back and relax until Madeline comes back!”

Elsie naps and watches TV a little, then Madeline and her family get back to the hotel….. So later…..

“Can you BELIEVE she forgot to take a picture of me in my PAJAMAS!  I mean, if your going on a trip she could at least take pictures of me! Well, anyway, I’m a little tired. Since I do I have them on, I am going to try to sleep. After all, tomorrow is the big day!!!”

ELSIE GOES SIGHTSEEING

 

Happy Dolloween 2009 November 1, 2009

Filed under: All Dolls,Doll Fun,Holiday,It's Fall! — Madeline@AGDC @ 11:54 PM

IMG_1953“Hey everybody!” Lulu the Street Skateboard Girl called. “Is anyone ready for Trick-Or-Treating? I got all the treat baskets out.” The American Girl Doll Central Dolls ran to Lulu. “Yeah, we are ready!” Josefina the Hawaii Girl said.

IMG_1954 Carefully Lulu explained the directions of what was going to be happening. “Ok, girls. We only have time for 4 houses tonight. Two on Star Tile Lane, and two on Hallway’s Pass Avenue. Do not go to the house on Gallery Rest Street.” Kit shivered. “But Lulu, what’s on that street?” Lulu said simply, “You don’t have to know. Just don’t go there, Kit.”

IMG_1956“I made my own bag,” said Molly. “Hey Lu, where’s Addy, Eva Grace, and Kathleen?” Lulu said, “They have offered to hand out candy. They’ll catch up with us later.”

IMG_1957The first house the dolls stopped out was the Strollers’ house.

IMG_1958“Um, Lulu? Does this mean the house is a scary one?” Kit asked, pointing to a sign that read, “ENTER IF YOU DARE!” Lulu shook her head. “Of course not, Kit. This is just the Strollers’ house. Don’t you remember their girl Maggie? Sad, she got very sick not that long ago. Give it a knock, it’ll be fine.” Kit raised her hand and gave a knock. In about 10 seconds the door swung open.

IMG_1959Out came a sick looking little girl. “Trick or Treat!” said the dolls, careful not to overwhelm the girl. “Oh.. you are a big group, huh? Um, look. I have this big bag full of candy. You each choose ONE and run along, OK, kids?”

IMG_1964Maggie put two candies in each of the doll’s baskets and told them goodbye.

IMG_1965“Well, THAT was a little awkward. She even called us “kids” when most of us are older than her.” Felicity observed. “Well,” said Samantha. “I’m not trying to be mean, but I think that girl is a little crazy in the head!” Elsie stopped them. “Girls, God made everyone different. And everyone’s special. So hush about this girl!”

IMG_1966Then Elsie ran over to another door. “Lulu, may I knock this door?” Lulu nodded. “You go, girl.” Elsie knocked. The door swung open, but when the dolls peered in, they couldn’t see anything. “Guess they are not home. Oh well.”

IMG_1967“WAIT! Down here!” Two little mini dolls were laying on the floor. “I’m Julie. I’m going for halloween as a pioneer girl!” said one. “I’m Kirsten. I’m an abstract painting!!!” said the other. “Uh..A what?” asked Josefina. “AN ABSTRACT PAINTING! A wild, pictureless painting!” Josie nodded. “Oh. Not to be pushy, but do you guys got any candy?” “Actually,” said Julie. “We were just about to go Trick-or-Treating, we weren’t planning to stay home.”

IMG_1968“Well, you can join us if you like,” said Molly. “OK!” said the mini dolls. They jumped into Molly’s treat bag.

IMG_1969“Here we are at the second house.” said Lulu. “You knock, Sam.” Samantha the Cheerleader knocked on the door.

IMG_1970“OOOoooHhhh!” ooohhhhed a girl who was a Hospital Patient for halloween. “Every single witch and ghost my pick 2 candies from my cauldron, it’s my toast!”

IMG_1971“Um, what exactly does that mean?” asked Molly.

IMG_1972“I dunno, I sort of just made up. You guys can just get whatever you want.” Eva Grace said. “But you guys GOT to help me. My friend Louise was going to be Trick-or-Treating with me, as a doctor. We were going to be parters. But it turns out she couldn’t make it. No one else will let me trick-or-treat with them!!!! Can I go with you guys?” Lulu smiled. “Well, we already got some tagalongs,” she nodded toward the mini dolls. “But sure, you can join us.”

IMG_1974“Let’s Trick-or-Treat here!” said Eva Grace, pointing to a house with a pretty glowing pumpkin. She knocked on the door.

IMG_1975Out came a girl dressed as an African Princess. “Oh, look at you, pretties!” she grinned. “I’m Addy. Well you know me!!! I’m your sis, of course!”

IMG_1977“Yeah, everyone pick something from my can.” Josefina picked Starburst and said, “Hey girl, want to Trick-Or-Treat with us?” Addy smiled and agreed.
IMG_1978“Hey, I want to go down this lane!!!” The dolls almost didn’t noticed the youngest doll of eight stroll down a path of danger. “WAIT!” shouted Lulu. But it was too late.

IMG_1979Kit was in the hands of a hideous, nasty, horribly scary house. The gate closed behind her. “Oh!!!” Kit winced. Scary things were everywhere! There was a ghostly thing sitting on a glowing pumpkin. There were cobwebs everywhere. And the most horrible, A 50 FOOT TALL, SCARY MONSTER!!!!!!!!

IMG_1987Everyone was scared. Dolls piling together.

IMG_1988Candy and treats were forgotten and spilled to the ground.

IMG_1990Cobwebs were on everyone and everything. “EEEK!” says Molly. 😦

IMG_1985“The Lord is with me, I shall not be afraid……”

IMG_1994“Oh, man!” winced Kit. She gulped.  “Only an angel can save me now!!!” As strange as it may seem, so it happened.

IMG_1998She must have heard the racket. An angel came out of the house…. at least, a girl DRESSED like an angel. Kathleen Mckenzie, on of the sweetest girls in AGDC, had set this up!!! “Oh, I’m ever so sorry if your scared, my dear!!!” Kathleen said to Kit. “SCARED?” Kit said. “Of COURSE I’m scared! Why in the world did you even think about setting this UP?” Kathleen pointed to the 50 foot tall scary monster. “I didn’t. It was our butler friend, Jenkins. I tell him not to scare everyone, but he does it for the teenagers.” Then she turned to Jenkins. “Hey, take the scary mask off!!!”

IMG_2002“Well, if you insist!” laughed Jenkins, pulling his face off.

IMG_2003“Look, kid, I’m sorry if I scared you and ya friends.” Jenkins apoligized.
“It’s ok, Mr.Jenkins. Bye!” Kit said. “Wait!!!!” Jenkins called. “I’ve got something to repay you for scaring ya.”

IMG_2004Then he filled Kit’s treat basket with candy and told her to share it with her sisters. “Thank you, Mr. Jenkins!!!!!” Kit shouted. “I WILL!”
