Dolls Just Wanna Have Fun

Hiya! It’s Amber, your favorite doll! I’ve been trying to have some fun over here, as best as I can considering the circumstances… but before I tell you, I have an announcement. Kit and Emma will be taking a summer break, so I’ll be the only one posting on here for now. Kit says NO WAY is she going to post when she could sit in the sun or play some baseball now that school’s out. Plus, she already has a lot on her due to being the camp leader. Emma didn’t really say anything because her nose was still in her book and didn’t look like it would be coming out of there!

Anyways, I had myself some free time, and decided to have some fun! Great, right?

Not really. Apparently, Human was looking for some “fun” too. Here’s a lovely bird’s eye photo in which you can see her stalking me. My idea of a perfect afternoon. Plus, she wears socks with sandals.

I started watching TV for a bit, but even dolls can’t take hours and hours! Human was very generous and allowed me to watch all the fashion shows, and even went out of the room for a little bit. Good girl.

By then, I was getting a little hungry, so I decided to raid the cupboard. But what does Human say but, “DON’T TOUCH THE TREATS!”

DSCN3007

What’s wrong, Human? Why so angry? It’s a free country, right? Okay, I’ll clean it up…

DSCN3076

NOT. GOING. TO. LOOK. AT. YOU. HUMAN.

DSCN3028

Oh look, there you are again. Why are you smiling, huh? Is it because you’re so better than me? Huh. I’d like you to prove it. As you can see, I’m playing “Mary Has A Little Lamb” perfectly… *plunk* whoops.

DSCN3085

Oh, hi, statue. I’m Amber. How are you doing? Hey… you’ve got a pretty nice hat… can I try it on? (sigh) Probably not.

DSCN3090

Spin, human, spin!! YAAAAAAYYYYYY… or not.

DSCN3092

Must…rethink…regroup…reorganize…and reenergize.

Amber

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!

DSCN2547

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!

DSCN2558

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).

DSCN2567

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.

DSCN2589

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?

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?

Emma

A Day Outside

Hello, everybody! Welcome to our blog! My name is Kit Kittredge and I’m 11 years old. Amber Williams and Emma Hawthorne will also be posting here. You can read about us on the page, “Meet the Dolls.” This blog will be about the adventures and fun we have together where we live!

Yesterday was a beautiful day! The sun was shining and the sky was blue. We decided to go outside during the afternoon.

DSCN2066

Amber was listening to some music on a ledge, in front of a big bush.

DSCN2075

DSCN2076

Emma was reading the “Meet Rebecca” book again from American Girl with Grace, the dog.

Me? I decided to explore.

DSCN2079

Here I am, next to the flowers growing in the back garden. So pretty!!

DSCN2082

A rest in the shade.

DSCN2083

WOW!! It sure is sunny outside today!!

In the evening, we decided to go outside again, but this time in the front garden. It was much cooler than the afternoon.

DSCN2085

Emma convinced Amber to play a word game with her, and here she is demonstrating a concept.

However, I still wanted to look around.

DSCN2092

Spring is my favorite season, and it’s nice to see what’s out there.

DSCN2089

Do you think I can climb that tree?

DSCN2090

Such nice plants!

DSCN2091

I finally climbed on top of the car!! That sure took a while, but it’s a nice view.

DSCN2095

I came back to the group, and we decided to play a game together – Blind Man’s Bluff. Amber finally caught me, by the way… after a long time.

DSCN2096

Then, we just laid on our backs and looked up at the sky. It was all very peaceful…

DSCN2099

Until Grace jumped up on me!!

DSCN2097

That dog!!
