Kit’s Birthday Party

Hello everybody! It’s Kit! (Yes, I know, I’ve been getting a lot of the spotlight here, but a birthday is a big thing! You’ll have to wait for November for Emma’s birthday and February for Amber’s birthday, though.)

Anyway, my best friends surprised me with a party! I had NO idea what they were doing, and it was sort of spooky (I’d go, “What’s happening?”, Amber would go, “Nothing.” , and Emma would go, “Well… you’ll find out…”) but when I saw the party room I was shocked!

Wow! Lots of food and decorations! My best friends are stars!

DSCN2549

Here I am with the whole food table! There was nothing else in the room except for this – plenty of space to party.

Now, the problem was, this was a surprise party – so I had no idea who was coming! But it could have been worse. There were girls mainly my age and my teacher, as well as Emma and Amber!

Here we all are. After everyone came Amber welcomed everybody and then started the dance competition (“Musical Statues”). We had to dance to 30’s music… and I have no idea how Amber managed to acquire those songs, because those were my favorites. I hadn’t heard them in so long.

We all dance in different ways! Amber, Emma and I really went for it, but Gretel (purple dress, green hat) just sat down and did movements with her arms! Tacy (small, red dress) was doing the splits, and she was the star of the show. Grace joined in – and I am surprised with what that dog can do if she sets her mind to it! Natalie (brown hair, pink clothing) would go insignificantly away from all the action, so when the music stopped, no one would notice if she moved… and she wouldn’t get “out”! (The judges were the girls against the wall).

But she eventually did, and it was only Grace and I left. No one was surprised that I was still in, because with my knowledge of the music and my determination to do anything (like stay still) when I set my mind to it. But everyone was surprised when I moved, just a tad… and Grace won! The lucky dog got to eat one of Emma’s cupcakes, the grand prize.

Then, it was time for food. There were two boxes of pizza, fruit, chips, ice cream, cookies, Coca – Cola and chocolate milk! Here I am with my mushroom pizza and my Coca – Cola (but that’s not ALL I took) – and let me tell you, it was great!

After everyone was full, Amber announced the second game. She had hidden pictures of me all over the room and we had to find them!

DSCN2593

“Yes! Here’s one!” Emma exclaimed, holding the picture of my favorite movie!

DSCN2598

“Found another!” Gretel shouted. She went to great lengths to get that one, stretching over the food table to reach it…

DSCN2601

And then, we stuck the pictures on a sheet of paper and made a collage! It’s like a giant birthday card from my friends!

DSCN2604

It was time to cut the cake… Amber cut it into thirds and then we all got a piece. Well done Amber, it was delicious!

DSCN2612

Present time! I must admit that that’s one of my favorite times. Little did I know, though, what was inside! It was…

DSCN2618

A LAPTOP?!?!! AWESOME!!!! My friends are¬† so kind!!!!! Now, I can post here without borrowing my Mom’s computer (that takes so long). This is my first post with my computer, actually!

But there was more…

DSCN2619

OH MY GOODNESS. Can this be real?

DSCN2621

It’s a kit with some paper to write on, a Reporter’s Notebook, some writing utensils and A CAMERA!!!!!!

Okay, so the camera came free with the laptop. BUT STILL!!!!

And then, that wasn’t all, they said, because Emma turned the box in a way…

DSCN2627

THAT WOULD MAKE A DESK! So that’s why the box was so big! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was an amazing party – not just the presents, I had fun all the time! I realized how much my friends care about me, and that is a very nice feeling!

What was your favorite birthday party?

A Birthday Breakfast

(Normal text is Kit) , (Underlined text is Amber) , (Italic text is Emma)

Hello, this is Kit! And Amber! As well as Emma! (Just saying, the idea of talking all at once comes from the blog http://www.dollsondablog.blogspot.nl/) Well anyway, before we continue, we have a few things to say… like, we won’t be taking billions of photos. That’s sad, because photos are a form, but hopefully this means that there will more photos in the long run. Memory space only lasts for so long. But it’s better than in 30’s! True, true…

Also, we won’t always be posting in the same order. (That being, me, Amber then Emma.) So the posts might be by one person a couple times, then another… you get it.

Thirdly, a big – shout out to our followers! We are truly honored that Aunt Kirsten and Willbardsgirl have started following our blog. Thank you VERY much! We hope you enjoy the blog!! Now girls, move out of the way, this is MY post.

Guess what – it was recently my birthday! I woke up to Amber singing (was it a nice song? IT’S MY TURN!!!) “Happy Birthday” and something heavy on my lap. It turns out my best friends had cooked for me a birthday breakfast!

DSCN2490

Amber cooked me a GIANT waffle  and Emma supplied the jam, peanut butter and nutella, along with the crackers. How sweet! I used nutella on my waffle, then jam and peanut butter on my crackers.

DSCN2496

Would you believe it, Emma even baked something! She baked me a cupcake! It was delicious, too. Here I am with my hot chocolate and cupcake.

DSCN2498

My friends said that the real present would come later at my birthday party, but for now, they gave me an ADORABLE teddy! Thank you, girls!

DSCN2506

And they said we could do what I wanted today! Hmmm… in Cincinnati I used to spend a LOT of time in the trees. What are those trees like for climbing? My ideas shoot as high as the stars!

Kit

From Blossoms to Board Games

DSCN2290

Hello! This is Emma, for the first time! I don’t know what to expect, because I’ve never had a blog, so this is going to be a learning experience! If you read this, I’m glad you’re here!! Welcome!

DSCN2299

All three of us went outside recently, but Amber and Kit decided to talk about American Girl things – well, I can’t join in there! So, I decided to look at the plum tree’s blossoms.

DSCN2310

These blossoms only come out once a year, and not for a very long time. This was my opportunity to see them!

DSCN2306

Except, that’s hard to do when you’re on the ground. Here’s a picture of me trying to climb up to see those flowers better. I don’t have the sheer determination and sporty personality as Kit and even Amber surprises me with perseverance (when she’s with her friends), so climbing up took a long time. I thought I would never make it!

DSCN2302

But there I was! Aren’t the flowers so pretty?

DSCN2309

Smelling the blossoms… so nice! It’s a shame they are going to go away, but then they’ll be back, next year.

DSCN2328

They were still there a couple days afterwards, but this time, none of us were content. Amber and Kit love good weather, and I finally agreed that yes, winter has been here for quite a while (winter is my favorite season).

DSCN2331

Yet that turned out okay, because Amber had an idea – “Let’s play some games!”

DSCN2362

We settled on tic – tac – toe, and I played first against Amber. I thought she would do nicely though, despite the fact that Kit’s the REAL game master.

DSCN2363

But, as we kept playing, things did get tricky…

DSCN2366

And Amber won. What did I expect, after all?

DSCN2370

Amber advanced into “finals”, and Kit was ready.

DSCN2382

Yes, she won – naturally! But Amber was such a good sport that she cheered with her, which is so sweet.

DSCN2388

Then, we were going to play “Guess Who?”. Seeing I hadn’t played against Kit, I played with her.

DSCN2395

What really surprised me that was in nearly no time, I had just about guessed her card.

DSCN2397

I had won, so I was against Amber – uh – oh! Amber likes looking at outer – appearances more than any of us (I look for the inner person).

DSCN2401

DSCN2393

I doubted I would win…

DSCN2408

Yes, she wiped me out! Well done, Amber!

Aren’t I fortunate to have pretty flowers and games… and friends?

DSCN2308

Emma

Baking pizza

Hello! This is Amber here speaking. Something exciting happened… I got a package in the mail!

DSCN2157

So, what was it? It was what I had ordered, a couple days ago. Something very useful…

DSCN2171

It was an apron! I love to cook and bake, so I decided to get something that will help me eventually. There was also a hair ribbon in the package, such a pretty pink.

DSCN2183

But looking around at the big kitchen, I was inspired. That “eventually” would turn into “now”! So, I decided to bake after all, what just about everybody likes, pizza!!

DSCN2190

Here I am stirring the dough that I made, on my own kitchen counter.

DSCN2210

Toppings need to be put on too, like sausage, cheese, mushrooms, sauce, and basil.

DSCN2196

The dough would not be complete without spices like oregano!

DSCN2217

After it was finished baking, this is what it looked like!

DSCN2218

Mmmm…

DSCN2224

I added a dash of olive oil.

DSCN2227

And, of course, the chef HAS to taste – test!

DSCN2246

Emma and Kit were very surprised and happy when I came upstairs!

DSCN2248

So, I served them a piece.

DSCN2249

They thought it was a “masterpiece” and “delicious”. Kit even went as far to say I should open my own restaurant, but that’s the closest thing to impossible I heard that day!

DSCN2259

The quiet from the dog made us realize something was wrong… Grace also wanted to be part of the fun!

DSCN2264

Soon, there was one piece left… which was given to me!

DSCN22733

I have nice friends!

Amber
