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!
Kristen had gathered us together for a Memorial Day Ceremony outside.
“Thank you for joining us.” said Kristen.
‘If you would now join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.”
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.*
Next I came up and led a prayer
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.
After that, Ellie came up and gave a history of Memorial Day.
“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.
Happy Memorial Day! Remember to pray for those who have lost someone today and everyday. 🙂
(Isn’t that panda just soooo cute)
WHAT! Last night, I checked my follower count for really no reason. When I saw 100 followers! AHH! 😀 Thanks to all who follow, like, comment, and take time to read my blog. I never expected to have 100 followers!! THANK YOU! I’ll have something super exciting for this coming up. So be ready. 😉 But for now we have a little photo-story to celebrate.
I sat on my new bed scrolling through videos, I’d recently taken.
When Emily burst into the room.
“ELLIE!!!!” she yelled.
“Yes, Emily.” I replied, setting down my camera.
“The Dolls of Texas, just hit 100 followers!” she cried, hugging me.
“Did someone say 100 followers?” cried Kristen rushing in.
“Woo! Hoo!!” yelled Molly, waving her arms around like a bird.
“This is so awesome.” I squealed.
“I know!” replied Emily.
🙂 Thanks for everyone who followed!
Happy start of May! 🙂
So, I was looking through old posts and in May of last year. I found a post called Sister Talk #1, it was super funny and totally fun! Read more
Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I decided to start something new, every week probably on Mondays. I’ll be posting a Bible verse with some other stuff. Be ready the first one will be tomorrow. 🙂 Anywho, I really needed a new header as well as I hadn’t ever done a family photo-shoot. So here it is…..
This is also for Sam’s photo contest. ❤
Sorry Sam… 😉
I really like this one.
(mental note remember to crop green boxes)
Profile photo’s… ❤
I hope you enjoyed and be sure to check out the Meet the Dolls page for our new and improved personality’s and our new header.
Hello everyone, how do you like the blog post header. I decided to start using Canva; Sam from AG Doll Awesome suggested it. 🙂
It was a pretty normal afternoon, I layed on my bed reading the best series ever Harry Potter. When Emily rushed in,
“Have you seen my llama?” she yelled, bursting into my room.
“No I haven’t seen your llama.” I said annoyed that she decided to interupt me reading my book.
“Tell me if you see her.” said Emily running out of the room.
I walked into Sam’s room. “Sam have you seen Snickers?” I asked.
“No, I haven’t,” said Sam who was playing with her toys.
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Yes. I’m pretty sure, I would know if a llama was in my room.” said Sam sarcastically.
All of a sudden I heard a scream from the kitchen.
“A llama ate my cupcakes.” screamed Lyssie extremely distressed that her cupcakes were being eaten.
“There you are Snickers.” I said.
“Get your gross animal out of her.” cried Lyssie.
I hope you enjoyed. I had a lot of fun making it.
Hello everyone! 🙂 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. 😛
“Okay everybody, listen up!” I yelled over the chaos of my sister talking/arguing.
“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.
“Hello everyone!” said Cici.
“And now for my big announcement.” I said standing up to make it more dramatic. “I’ve decided to have family jobs.” I called.
“Say what.” cried Sam.
“Jobs.. sounds like work and I’m lazy.” said Marisol matter-of-factly.
“I know guys, it sounds scary but trust me it’ll be fun!” I said cheerily. “Here are the jobs
Dog Walker/Pet Carer
Homework Helper.” I said
(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.
“Me and Cici, can be the dog walkers.” said Lyssie.
“I guess… I’ll be the homework helper and babysitter.” said Emily hesitatantly.
And then it was finished. 🙂 We had all picked out a job! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed. 😀
