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 😉 )

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!

 

Camp, A new Photostory & JULY 4TH PICS! July 15, 2010

Hi everyone! Just letting you know that I will NOT be on tomorrow (Friday, July 16) through next Monday (July 19). This is because I am going to camp with my church that weekend—Camp Dixie!!!!! I may or may not bring my doll, but if I do, I will TRY to take a few pictures but it is not guaranteed. If I can’t maybe I can make a special camp thing with my dolls or something here at home when I get back.  Also, yesterday my sister left for Nicaragua on a missions trip with her school. They are staying for a week and going to the biggest garbage dump in the world, home to hundreds and thousands of families. So please pray for us campers to have a safe trip and for my sister’s mission trip and that Nicaraguans will be saved. 🙂

In other news, I have made a brand new photo story on Picasa. I have decided that when I make a new photo story there, I will post a picture from it and a brief explanation wheat the story is about. Here I go:
JULIE, HER VIOLIN, AND THE HARMONY YOUTH ORCHESTRA
Julie has always loved to play the violin, even before she came to AGDC. But when she’s really put to the test to see how well she plays, can she prove her musical heart well enough to get into a fine respected orchestra???”
To read this story, scroll down to my link bar and visit “Madeline’s Picasa Albums.” This will take you to my picasa page, where you can read a few photo stories. Many other stories are found on this site. If you’d like to comment on this story but do not have a Picasa, come back here saying you’ve read the story and what you thought of it. Thank you! NOTE: As for what I have decided, I am going to start to do some stories on picasa, some on here, so I can keep a well balance. I hope to add some more stuff here soon besides just photo stories. I am also working hard on making some AG videos for my youtube.

NOW, THE MOMENT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR….JULY FOURTH PICTURES! So, I got three pictures. Not too many, but I’m very thankful that these three sent them in! Thanks!!!!! I have also added some of MY pictures.


This picture was sent in by  Hannie (Hannah), from IrishGirl! I think it’s really pretty. All three of her dolls are celebrating America’s Independence with a party! I love all the decorations-the poster, the little mini paper chain…. the cookies are a nice little touch, as well! The clothes on the dolls are totally red, white and blue, too! Hannah is kind of an Irish-American girl living in Ireland, I guess you could say! LOL

This next picture was sent in by ANNE! Her doll Charlotte is doing a patriotic dance for her friends. I think this is really nice! You get the feel that Charlotte is really dancing, she’s not just standing still. The box is a cute little stage. The girls below look like they are really enjoying the performance. Are you? 😉

Last but not least…..Leanna’s picture! (Sorry Leanna I am not sure if this is the picture you wanted. I hope it is!) Leanna’s dolls, Kristy and Lanie, are having a picnic to celebrate the Fourth of July. Another great pic! The lighting is just very cool and still Summery in the picture. I like how she used the bandanna as a picnic blanket and I love the little food! And note that it’s food you eat at a picnic, she didn’t just stick a piece of pizza or beans on the plate.

GREAT JOB TO ALL THREE OF YOU! I LOVED SEEING YOUR PICTURES!!!!! THEY ALL HAD SOMETHING GREAT ABOUT THEM!

Ok, now for some of mine…….

Earlier in the day before we go see fireworks, Julie goes on A little car ride. “Do you like my outfit?” she asks.

“Oh, look, look, look, Madeline’s mom!!!! Lemonade!!! Can we get some??? Pretty, pretty, pretty please???” I don’t know how anyone COULD say no! They were all little kids raising money for charity with big signs and waving flags. Right at a stoplight in a neighborhood, too.

“Yum, yum, yum! Dee-licious!” Those kid’s mommies sure do make some good lemonade!!!!”

(Sorry for the bad quality! I had to use flash and it always makes my dolls look all shiny and weird.) Later, we grab Addy decked out in her fourth of July wear and head to the fireworks show. “I can’t wait!” says Addy. “Me neither!” Julie agrees.

When we get to the sow, we sit on a quilt Madeline’s great grandmother had made. We meet our friend Nicki, too! “Hi Nicki!” And then we watch the fireworks. They were so pretty! Happy Fourth of July everyone!

Oh and I forgot to mention- we have some new people in “Our Friends and Their Dolls”. Visit the page to see!
