It's Christmas at AGDC!

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

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!”

Julie Breaks her Leg! November 16, 2010

Filed under: Julie,Our Friends and Their Dolls,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 5:42 PM

Julie, our beloved violinist and brainiac, has broken her leg! You can read the story on my picasa HERE and read part 1 and 2 of “When Bad Things Happen to Good People”.

Julie is now wearing a pretty blue cast and feeling much better. Thanks to these fans who sent in Get Well Soon cards to Julie:

“Dear Other Julie, I’m so sorry to hear that you broke your leg. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I hope you feel better soon ๐Ÿ™‚ That is SO non-groovy that you have to stay in a wheelchair and wear a cast! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I hope you feel better soon. I also hope that you learned that Breena is not your friend. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Get well soon!
~Julie and Hannah
(Great Story, by the way!)”

“Dear Julie-Clone-who-is-nothing-like-me,
Get Well Soon! It’s so sad to hear that a fellow Julie got hurt. At least you have a groovy shade of blue for your cast! I really hope that you get up and movin’ again soon and I’ll keep you in my dollie prayers! Just remember now that Mickey is your true friend, one you can trust, and Breena isn’t.
Love, and Hugs, and Lady Bugs,
Julie Marceline Albright”
~Julie and Carolyn

“Don’t worry Julie you should be fine! I love you lots and I will be visiting you again soon! When you visit I will fix you a yummy treat. Get well soon! Love, your Auntie Abby.” ~Abby


Amanda and her dolls were so sweet to create virtual Get-Well-Soon cards for Julie. Their message is:
“From Kirsten: Hi there! We are all deeply sorry you broke your leg and I wanted o give you this speacial message: Do not feel pressured to do things you do not want to do, especially from people as mean as Breena.
From Faith and Molly: Hey girl! Faith *JLY 23* and Molly *1944* the twins here! We hope you get well soon and please hang in there!
From Hannah and Zoey: Hi, Julie! How do you feel? We hope you’ll feel better soon! Our whole family has included something special for you! Hope you like it!”

Sarah and her dolls, Willow & Ivy,ย ย Lena and dolls also wish Julie to get well soon. If you wish to send to Julie a Get Well Soon card, send it through email or leave a comment her or picasa.

Julie also wants to say something: “Thank you, everyone for supporting me through this injury. I am so thankful to have so many friends around the internet. I will talk to ya’ll soon!” ~Julie

 

Baking with Julie October 25, 2010

Filed under: Baking and Cooking,Doll Fun,Julie,Real Recipes — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:40 PM

Hello! Welcome to baking class! I am your host, Julie Albright!

Julies_Cooking_Class_2 Today I will show you how to make vanilla cupcakes using a real recipe so that you can make them at home, too! Before you begin, preheat the oven to 350ยบ and line cupcake pans with liners.

Combine 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup shortening, 1 cup 2% milk, and 1/12 teaspoons vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl.

Mix at low speed for two minutes and scrape bowl. ย Then add 4 egg whites and mix at high speed for approximately 2 minutes and until fluffy and smooth.

Fill liners 1/2 to 2/3 of batter. Be careful not to overfill.

Bake cupcakes 20 to 25 minutes in the oven or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

When the cupcakes are done baking, let them cool for 10 minutes in pans. Then remove from the pans and place on wire rack to cool completely.

Now it’s time to decorate! Frost cupcakes with an icing bag.

You can also add sprinkles if wanted.

Ta-da! All done! Thanks for baking with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

As some of you may have heard, I uploaded my newest American Girl doll movie, American Girl Restaurant, on Youtube about a week ago. Since some of the younger girls aren’t allowed to go on Youtube, for the sake of some bad videos that can be found there, I’ve posted it here! And if you’re feeling to lazy to search it up right now, this will also do you good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy! Thanks for watching!!!
