Memorial Day Celebration

Memorial Day Celebration

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Today is the day we celebrate to appreciate and remember those who have died fighting for our freedom. I’ve prepared a photo-story to honor those who have fallen. I hope you enjoy!

Emily’s POV

Kristen had gathered us together for a Memorial Day Ceremony outside.

 

DSC_0310

“Thank you for joining us.” said Kristen.

‘If you would now join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.”

DSC_0311

We all saluted and repeated the Pledge of Allegiance.

*I am aware that you only salute when in full uniform, tecnically Emily is the only one in a uniform, but it is not possible to make American Girl Dolls place their hands over there hearts.* DSC_0312

Next I came up and led a prayer

“Dear Lord,

We thank you, for giving us the opportunity to gather here. We thank you for those who fight or have fought for our country. We ask you be with their families today. Let us always thank you for everything.

Amen”

DSC_0313

After that, Ellie came up and gave a history of Memorial Day.

DSC_0314

“The first Memorial Day was after the Civil War in 1865. When during springtime people held celebrations honoring those who had died by having large prayer sessions and putting flowers on the grave of soldiers. On May 5th, 1866 Waterloo, New York held a city wide celebration of Memorial Day. It was not observed as a national holiday till 1971. It was first called Decoration Day until it was changed to Memorial Day sometime during the 1900s.”

Sam then led us in some songs.

Family Meeting *AGPS*

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚ It’s been a while since I posted a photo-story and thought it was time to do another one. I’m hoping to be doing more photo-stories one a week maybe. πŸ˜›

Kristen’s POV

dsc_0485

“Okay everybody, listen up!” I yelled over the chaos of my sister talking/arguing.

dsc_0486

“I have some announcements.” I started.

“We need to start having more family time. I mean.. half of us barely know each other, and we haven’t even properly introduced Cici to the family.

dsc_0487

“Hello everyone!” said Cici.

dsc_0488

“And now for my big announcement.” I said standing up to make it more dramatic. “I’ve decided to have family jobs.” I called.

dsc_0489

“Say what.” cried Sam.

dsc_0490

“Jobs.. sounds like work and I’m lazy.” said Marisol matter-of-factly.

dsc_0491

“I know guys, it sounds scary but trust me it’ll be fun!” I said cheerily. “Here are the jobs

Cook

Dog Walker/Pet Carer

Babysitter

Laundry

Planner

and

Homework Helper.” I said

dsc_0493

(Sorry for the blurrieness)

“I’ll do cook.” said Molly excitedly.

“I guess I can do laundry since.. I like to “borrow” peoples clothes.” said Marisol.

“Planner for me.” cried Sam.

dsc_0494

dsc_0495

“Me and Cici, can be the dog walkers.” said Lyssie.

dsc_0496

“I guess… I’ll be the homework helper and babysitter.” said Emily hesitatantly.

Ahh! It’s Christmas Eve… already. I’m so so so excited. Tomorrow we get to open presents, go to church, and have a delicious Christmas dinner/lunch. I haven’t done enough Christmas posts this holiday season. *ggrr* I have so many awesome ideas but sadly not enough time. πŸ˜› Onto the Christmas post..

dsc_0037

*Kristen’s POV*

7:00 pmΒ 

The whole week had been a big bundle of excitement all counting down to this.. the official Dolls of Texas.. Christmas Eve extravaganza. πŸ˜€

dsc_0038

“Okay everybody.. let’s track Santa!” squealed Sam.. the leader of the Santa Fan Club.

dsc_0039

“He’s in Canada.” said Sam.

“Cool!” cried Brooklyn.

8:15 pmΒ 

dsc_0040

“Let’s jam!” cried Sam.. putting on some techno Christmas music.

dsc_0041

“Jam out.” replied Marisol.

dsc_0043

“Everybody, tomorrow is my 1 year anniversary of being here.” said Brooklyn excitedly.

dsc_0044

“Woo! Hoo!!” yelped Emily giving Brooklyn a giant hug.

dsc_0045

8:00 pmΒ 

“I learned a few new Christmas songs.” said Molly.

dsc_0046

“Dance party!” cried me and Emily in unison.

dsc_0047

Soon enough we were all dancing and being crazy Christmas weirdos.

dsc_0048

“WOO!” screamed Lyssie who had obviously needed to lay off the M&M’s she had been devouring since 6:00 pm.

dsc_0049

The dance party ended somewhere around 8:45. When we all had a sugar crash.

dsc_0050

11:00 pmΒ 

Finally, at 11:00 after a lot of eggnog. We decided to hit the hay.

dsc_0051

“Good night everybody.” I whispered.

Sorry that there wasn’t a sleeping pic. My camera unfortunetly also had to much eggnog and decided to die… πŸ˜€ Merry Christmas to y’all and thanks for following me dilegently throughout the whole year. What dolls are you hoping to get this Christmas??

The Trip

The Trip

Hi everyone!! I’m back with a new photo-story! Yay! It’s been pretty long since I did one so…. πŸ˜‰

Emily’s POV

DSC_0183

I shoved another notebook and my 7th pair of shoes into my suitcase. We’ll be gone for 6 nights which means I’ll need a lot of clothes. I started shoving more things in.

DSC_0185

All of a sudden a barking furry puppy by the name of Cooper (I finally name him) bounded into the room. “I’m going to miss you on vacation.” I said snuggling Cooper in my arms.

DSC_0186

“Your so lucky you get to go on vacation.” cried Molly walking into the room.

DSC_0187

She sat down. “I’ll miss you..” she said. “Thanks! Marisol said that all she’d do was steal my clothes and have a party.” I said.

DSC_0188

“Hi guys!” said Kristen walking on in. “Is it a party in my room or what?” I cried. “Why are you still in your pajama’s?” asked Molly. “2 words .. I’m homeschooled.” replied Kristen.

DSC_0189

(These next 2 pictures came out blurry sorry). “I wish I could go with you.” said Molly enviously. “Maybe you’ll go on the Thanksgiving trip.” said Kristen hopefully.

DSC_0191Molly soon left, “I can’t wait for our vacation adventure!” said Kristen. “Me neither.” I replied.

Hi everyone you may be asking where have you been for the past few days well here ‘s your answer.DSC04579

Yep I got it at Target the a few days after it came out.

I actually almost cried a few time I yelled at Albus and then at Harry! Great book! πŸ™‚ LONG LIVE SLYTHERIN! Okay now onto the post.

DSC04571

Here’s the nightgown it’s a pale blueish color.

DSC04572

It has a bunch of cute sleepover must haves!

DSC04573

The sleeves are have little sprinkles on them.

DSC04574

The length is right above the knee or a little higher.

DSC04575

It has velcro on the back very nice and sturdy.

DSC04576

Ha! I just thought I’d but Cecile’s slippers on her.. they didn’t come with it. πŸ˜€

DSC04577DSC04578

Overall I’d give this a 5 stars it’s the same quility as AG except for half the price I pretty sure it was $10.90!

How to Make a Camp Wristband for AG Dolls

How to Make a Camp Wristband for AG Dolls

Hello everyone!! How was everyone’s 4th of July? Mine went great now I’m back on preparing for doll camp! πŸ™‚ Today I’ll be doing the rarely seen.. craft! :O *dramatic music* This blog has a knack for not posting DIY, Crafting, or anything even though I love to craft I never get around to posting it! πŸ™‚ Well okay onto the lovely craft!Β DSC04117DSC04109

For this craft you’ll need

  • Scissors
  • A Sharpie
  • Duct Tape (preferably the small rolls)

DSC04110

First start by measuring the duct tape on your dolls wrist. A small strip from the small roll will work. Be sure to make sure to add a little extra.

DSC04111

Then fold the piece in half and cut off any excess!

DSC04112

Now re-measure on your doll make sure it can easily slide on and off. πŸ˜‰ Then pinch where you need it.

DSC04113

Take a small piece of tape.

DSC04114

And tie it around where you made the pinch.

DSC04115

Then use the Sharpie to write your dolls name on it. You can’t see mine cause my black Sharpie disappeared into an alternate dimension.

DSC04116

There you go!! πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoyed.

Thanks for reading!!
