The Thankful Poem

Hello doll-fans! Emma here talking. I hope you all have had a lovely Thanksgiving. In light of the holiday, I decided to write a poem about it and include some photos from Doll-lightful Days’ history. Do enjoy!

Happy Fourth of July!

Hi, and happy fourth of July! Have a wonderful day barbecuing, watching fireworks, hanging up US flags, and most importantly, having fun! Today, your favorite adventurous girls (maybe Emma, however, isn’t very adventurous…) decided to celebrate by taking a special trip…

DSCN2893

“AGH!! Amber, I’m scared!”

“Don’t be! It’s just a boat!”

“What if it tips over? What if we fall in the water? What if we DROWN…”

“We WON’T drown, don’t worry. Now, why don’t you think up a little story about what we’re doing.”

“Al…right. Courageous explorers Emma and Amber today board the famous American ship, “Stars ‘n’ Stripes”, to discover a new island. Right now all they can see is open sea, flat and peaceful.”

“And they start to grill their 4th of July dinner.”

“Yes. They remark to each other the stillness of the water – but suddenly they see something. A black fin, circling and circling around their ship… could it be… AGH!! AMBER I’M SCARED!”

“Stop worrying, I don’t think sharks try to attack humans. They just mistake them for turtles or something.”

“BUT OUR BOAT’S GREEN!! AGH!!!”

“Couldn’t you just – ”

“AMBER GET ME OFF THIS SHIP!!”

“OK, OK… here ya go. There. Feel much better now? I’m glad. You wanna know a secret that I can’t believe you didn’t notice? There’s no water.”

After that, the adventurous girls decided to stay in their camp cabin where they belonged!

Emma and the Ducks

Hello girls! It’s Emma here. I went a while ago to see some neighborhood ducks and a little duckling, because after Kit’s birthday, I had the time to relax. I like animals – especially baby animals – and the ducks were not far away, so it was the perfect weekend outing.

DSCN2646

There they are! We had brought bread so there were many. I assure you, however, that the weather is much improved now 🙂

DSCN2640

There’s the little duckling, along with his mother! I’m sorry that in the photo he just looks like a yellow puffball and he was much cuter in person (rather, duckling). He was a bit shy, unfortunately, but that’s how ducklings are and it’s good for them.

DSCN2643

All right, if the duckling was shy, I’d try another duck, even though I was somewhat bashful and not very fond of pictures. The ducks didn’t want to be photographed either – they went away.

DSCN2648

It’s not a big deal. I’ll just watch them. They’re the same sort of sight to see as a sunset – pretty, satisfying, interesting. I suppose it’s like that with all nature. You could spend hours in a zoo or just sit in the fields – it’s just beautiful and peaceful. It makes you content.

DSCN2639

One last photograph of the ducks and I. Ducks are funny creatures! I enjoyed my visit with them!

Emma

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?
