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!

 

Happy Thanksgiving! November 25, 2010

Filed under: Holiday,It's Fall!,Special Dates — Madeline@AGDC @ 12:17 PM

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day of thanks to God and being thankful for what we have. What are your thanksgiving traditions- do you have a feast at your grandma’s, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade with your cousins? What are you thankful for?
My dolls are giving thanks today too. Josie is going to give thanks because she is getting her hair re-done today (downy-dunking it, washing it, putting the braids back in). They’ll feast later on, too. Some of the things I am thankful for are:
1. Jesus and my salvation
2.My family and friends
3. Clean water and fresh food
4. Ability and health
5. A car, a roof over my head,  a bed to sleep in each night
6. A Christian school to go to
7. A life that God has given me.
and so much more. There are so many things that we take for granted- even the sun rising every morning. Many people have never drank clean water. So, today, let’s pray and give thanks for all that we have- needs and wants. God is good- no, he’s GREAT!

Happy 4th of July!!!! July 4, 2010

Filed under: Holiday,Message from Madeline,Summer — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:53 PM

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!

I hope you all are having a great time today!

Here’s a video of our national anthem…hope you enjoy!!!

Why do you love America? You may love the freedom of religion and speech. You may be from a different country and are glad that America welcomed you here. What are you thankful for?

My dolls are so thankful that they are free, and so am I. We are also very blessed here, even when we have bad economy situations.

God bless America!!!!!!!! America is a nation founded on God, and that is another thing we can be very thankful for. We can be thankful for our troops fighting over seas, too.

I hope you have a wonderful day going to church and doing maybe a fun celebration there, watching fireworks, having cookouts, and more. And don’t forget to send your pictures in! (Scroll down to post about that).

I have taped our local fireworks show for you to enjoy. I know I have some fans out of the country who are American/parents from America, and since they don’t get an oppertunity to watch fireworks on this day, it’s for them as well. It’s not the same, I know, but I hope you enjoy them! The first one may get boring if you have already since fireworks lately, but if they  do get boring, go ahead and watch the grand finale!!!! (Second video)

HAVE A BLESSED AND GREAT FOURTH OF JULY!

4th of July Fun! July 2, 2010

Hey!

It’s only 2 more days until one of the most important days in American history- Independence Day. Over 200 years ago America became an independent country,and my dolls are ready to have fun with the Fourth! Are your dolls?
We hope so! Dress your dolls in red, white, and blue for the big day and make crafts with them. Eat plenty of watermelon and apple pie and ask your family to have  picnic at your local fireworks show. Bring your doll, I want to see those pictures!
That reminds me. You know how Liz asked all of you to share your summer photos? It wasn’t a contest, but she posted them all? I would like to do something like that. Here’s how it works:
1. Take a picture of your doll wearing/doing something that has to do with America or 4th of July. You could take her picture in her favorite patriotic attire, having a picnic with her friends, watching fireworks, or even dressed up like a  colonial girl who actually heard the news that America was free. Is your doll a different nationality, and proud to be an American? Express that. Plus, if you have any extra pictures such as a cool firework or a red-white-and-blue cake you might have made, or a craft, send that along with your doll picture.
2. Send your photos to madelineward17@yahoo.com. Deadline is July 7, so you have enough time to take pictures of her on the actual fourth or around that time. I will display the photos soon after.
3. Have fun that day! Hopefully I can get my dolls to do something. They will be coming to a Fourth of July fireworks show with me, so  might be able to show those pics.
5. ONE MORE THING- If you have an idea for a fourth-of-july craft or recipe, that’s great too.

 

Happy Easter, AGDC Dolls! April 4, 2010

Filed under: All Dolls,Doll Fun,Holiday,Maria Kit,Mia,Spring has Sprung! — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:47 PM

It was an early Sunday morning in April—Easter Sunday, to be exact—and Elsie and Kathleen were dressed and all ready for the celebration. “Good morning, my sisters!” Elsie’s sweet voice rang out in a song. “It is Easter, and we must arise early!” Felicity rolled over in bed on the other side of the room. “Whhhyyyy???” she asked sleepily. “Because!” said Elsie. “The Lord has risen!” Felicity yawned, got up, woke her sisters up, and told them, “The Looord (yaawn) has risen (yawn)…” One by one the girls popped out of their beds and dressed in their Easter dresses.

The first girls to get dressed were Addy (FAQ: Q: Did it take a while to do Addy’s hair? A: Yes, Yes it did.), Samantha, and Josefina. Addy was wearing her Christmas Dress, but today she would pretend it was a springtime dress. Josefina was wearing a spring flowers outfit and Samantha’s dress was sewn by Madeline.

Kit leading the way, the girls trudged down the hall excitedly, anxious to see what the Easter Bunny had left them.

Kit was the first to notice two colorful Easter baskets just the size for an American Girl doll parked on the table. “Look at this!” she cried. “Look what Mr.Easter Bunny left for us!” *Madeline winking to herself in the background*. “Oh my goodness!” shouted Kit. There’s candy and stickers in here!”

“And, oh, there’s one of…of…. of ME!” Kit sighed dramatically. She was almost jumping up and down at the fact she was a sticker. “I have got to show Maria Kit this at our next playdate! She’ll FLIP to see ourselves as a sticker!” Kit hugged the sticker pack close. But she wasn’t the only one surprised.

Not only Kit, but Josefina, Felicity, and Addy also had stickers of themselves!!! Wow!!! It was incredible! All the dolls wanted a chance to see their sister as a sticker.

“Yall look!” cried Addy in her sweet southern accent. “There are not only stickeroos of us, but there is an envelopes and stationary kit, and also word stickers!” The dolls were fascinated as they munched down on mini chocolate rabbits.

This is what Madeline came out to. A bucket of chocolate eggs and candy, a movie called “A Little Princess“, a book called “Amelia’s Middle School Survival Guide”, and a summer-time dress and  knee socks.

Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. It was Maria Kit and Mia! Maria Kit and Kit were best friends, and Madeline’s family knew Maria Kit and Mia’s owner’s family very well, so the dolls got to come over a lot. But it was still a  great surprise! “What are you doing here?” Kit laughed, hugging her friends. “We couldn’t miss Easter!” said Mia. “Well, come in,” said Kit. “Your just in time. We are just about to read  ” The First Easter”.

The girls gathered around. “Ok,” began Elsie. “I am going to read you the story of the first Easter. Is everyone ready?” Everybody nodded. “yes.”

“Once upon a time, over 2000 years ago, a baby named Jesus was born in a stable. Do you remember me telling you that story? Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His parents, Mary and Joseph, were visiting there because of the census, which was when Caesar Augustus wanted record of everybody and wanted them to be taxed. Mary was pregnat with the holy baby, which an angel told her to name Jesus. When they got to Bethlehem, there was no room in any of the inns. One man who owned a inn felt sorry for the ill and pregnat women and her husband and told them the only place they could stay was a smelly stable. Imagine…..the holy King of Kings who would die for us and rise again, the Prince of Peace, was born in a smelly, old, nasty stable with His only company some donkeys, sheeps, and shepherds.”

“Jesus grew up like a regular boy and man and did many miracles. He was the only perfect one, and He never did anything wrong. Not even the teeniest little white lie or bad thought. He was perfect. Many people wanted to see Him and touch Him.”

“One day, he rode into town on a donkey on what we now call “Palm Sunday.” The reason it was called that is because the people took palm branches and waved them at Jesus. They called, “Hosannah! Hosannah is the King of Isreal!” Some men ripped the clothes off their backs and made a walkway for Jesus. But Jesus was sad because he knew that by the end of the week these same people would be calling out something very, very, different.”

“One of Jesus’s disciples, Judas, betrayed Him and helped the Roman soldiers arrest Him if they gave him money. So the soldiers gave Judas the money and he told them where Jesus was. Jesus knew that they would kill Him. But it was the plan to save the bad, sinful world, so Jesus knew He had to do it. They beat Jesus and put thorns on His head. You may think, “Oh, he must have done something really terrible!” But Jesus did nothing. Nothing at all. Pilot didn’t think he did anything wrong either, but the people insisted so. So Pilot ordered the soldiers to beat Jesus more so the people would be happy. After, Pilot took Jesus and a cold-hearted, mean, scoundrel criminal who killed people and murdered and stole. That man’s name was Barabas. Pilot told the people he would kill one of them. The mean criminal and muderer, or Jesus. The people said Barabas shoudl be let free, and they yelled “Crucify Him!” at Jesus. The people yelling “Crucify Him!” were the same people who earlier in the week were calling out “Hosannah!” So why were they now calling “Crucify Him?” Maybe they didn’t want to be different. They didn’t want to be made fun of. “If I stand up for Jesus,” they thought, “Will I be crucified?” So they went with the crowd and thought of themselves. So Pilot, even though he didn’t think anything was wrong with Jesus, he decided to go with what the crowd thought, too, and he ordered Jesus to be killed. Jesus died on the cross on what we now know as Good Friday. It was sad and horrific, but Jesus was saving the world and relieving them of their sins. Jesus was perfect. We are all sinners. Jesus, a perfect one, had to take all the sins of the world on Him and suffer so we wouldn’t have to. When we sin today, all we have to do is ask God to forgive us, and He will.”

“But Jesus didn’t stay dead. Three days later, on the very first Easter, He came back to lie. Jesus is still alive and is all around us. We celebrate Easter because Jesus has saved us and then He did not stay dead, but He rose again. We can thank the Lord for saving us, and we can ask Him to come into our hearts.  He will always be there for us, even if we can’t see Him. That’s what faith is.”

“That’s the end of the story!” Elsie said, shutting the book. The girls clapped and cheers. Elsie held up her hand. “Let us pray. Dear  Jesus, thank you for this day. Thank you for dieing on the cross for our sins and suffering so we didn’t have to. But you did not stay dead, for three days later you rose again. We thank you that we can put our trust in you and can say we are Christians. Please forgive us for everything that displeases you. Help us to live a life of faith, and help us to be more like you. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.”
The girls clapped. “Time for the egg hunt at Julia and Hannah’s house!” shouted Samantha! “Yay!” the AGDC dolls cheered. Felicity clapped. “Come on! Last one there is a rotten Easter Egg!”

THE END! 🙂 🙂 🙂

HAVE A HAPPY, HAPPY EASTER!

 

Happy Easter!

Filed under: All Dolls,Holiday,Spring has Sprung! — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:25 AM

Happy Easter everyone! My dolls are ready to celebrate. They even have two special visitors-who are they?-It’s a surprise! I’m going to try to have my easter stuff up (the easter photo story or whatever) up by the end of they day or at least tomorrow. I’m not kidding, because this year I have something special planned for you guys to see and it would be crisis to forget about it. But anyway, Easter is a special time in the spring where we celebrate Jesus dying on the cross and rising again. Isn’t it cool to know? You can read the story of the first easter in the Bible, and I hope you will all take the time to do that. Maybe I can post it here. So what are you doing for Easter? What are your traditions?  This morning, we got up and woke my mom and dad. And yes-they told us to go back to bed for 15 more minutes, LOL! But eventually, we got to go out. Something the “easter bunny”  does at our house is leave M&M’s all over. For example, on the table there might be a smiley face made out of M&M’s. Like M&M pictures, all over the place. It’s awesome! Then, we look at our baskets. I got a book called “Amelia’s Middle School Survival Guide” by Marissa Moss, A movie called “The Little Princess” which was based on a book about a little girl who was once a rich girl in India until her father sent her to America to be in an orphanage and stuff, a chocolate bunny, a stuffed animal duck, and LOTS of little egg candies! Then, my mom read the Easter Story from the Bible. Now we are getting ready for church! I am wearing my new easter dress! LOL!

What are you doing for easter? Are you doing an Easter egg hunt or dying eggs? That’s always fun! Or are you traveling? That’s fun, too! Well, I hope you ALL have a WONDERFUL and BLESSED Easter and I thank all of you or I wouldn’t have this blog! Thank You! Bye!

Happy Easter!
From, Madeline and the girls! ❤
