Doll Diaries Photo Contest

Hey guys! Over at Doll Diaries.com they are having a photo contest (Check it out here). The theme is getting ready for the holidays! And, I thought I would show you my entry for it. :)

This is the image I sent. But, let's look at it more closely.


Here, Julie, Caroline and Coconut are getting ready for Christmas.

This is a zoom up of Kaya in a sleigh. The sleigh is actually a Christmas decoration. I also just put a white sheet on my carpet that way it looks like snow. And then I added some fluff bordering the Winter Background.

Let me know if you entered! Bye guys!

My friend's house was on fire Saturday night.....


Flashing lights of the 6 (or more) fire trucks and police cars.

At first, 1 fire truck pulled up. I thought it was just going to one of our neighbors who always call 911 for non-emergencies. But another one stopped by and another! So I looked at the window and there were police cars and 6 (or more) firetrucks lining our short street. I opened my window and peeked down the rode but Lou's (My neighbor) pine tree was blocking the view. In front of Lou's house is a fire hydrant and the fireman opened it and hooked up their hose! It was incredible to see firefighters in full uniform with masks and carrying axes walk down the street. I was amazed at first because I've never seen them like this in real life! Only in movies. But then, I started to wonder "Why are they in uniform and hooking up their hose unless..... There is a fire?!" I decided to pray with my sister (Heidi, who was watching it with me). Our prayer got interrupted when my mom came in. I thought we might get in trouble sense it was 11:30. But she joined us in watching. As we were watching, we saw my older sisters arrive home from their friends. They were pretty freaked out because they pulled over on the highway to let all the firetrucks and police by. And they were jokingly saying how it would pull down our street. And it did. So they had a lot of questions when they got home. Sense the whole neighborhood was walking down there in their pajamas, my older sister and Heidi went down there too. I didn't want to go down with them though. I didn't know really why, I felt a little embarrassed. Suddenly, there was a loud BOOM noise When they came back they said that they saw smoke come out of a upstairs window. There was a fire but you couldn't see it from outside. Now, I was REALLY curious so I wanted to go down. So was my mom. Everybody walked down there again and I came with. I honestly was so inspired and awed by the firemen and the firetrucks and everything and there was even a female firefighter! My mom took this next picture when we were down there. But, the pictures don't do anything justice. It was an incredible experience I will never be able to explain.

The two men in front of us are some neighbors who we chatted with. The house on fire is the house on the right side. 

UPDATE: Our friends are safe and it can be repaired.

I know this post has nothing to do with American Girl dolls but I thought you would enjoy hearing about it. Also, sorry for not posting, our internet was down.

Holiday Hairstyles

Hey guys! Today, I'm going to show you some holiday hairstyles with Kaya, Caroline and Julie! Lets get started!

First Julie


I started by dividing her hair into two sections.

Twist them both towards each other all the way down,

and then twist them together.

Just like this! :)

Secure it with a hair tie or elastic.

The back

and the front. 

Next is Caroline


Her hairstyle is the easiest.

All I did was take two curly sections from the front of her hair and pulled them back into a elastic.

That's it! You could also add a really cute bow to the back!

And the last one is Kaya


I divided her har into three equal sections and began braided a regular braid. 

Any braid would look pretty. My favorite braid is the fishtail braid! There are many tutorials for it on YouTube and Pinterest and Blogs!

And secure it at the end.

This is optional, but I'm taking a headband

Crossing it to make it look like a infinity sign. This will actually make the circle smaller.

And Im using it as a bohemian headband for Kaya.

Let me know what hairstyles your doing on your dolls for the holiday season! Merry Christmas! (Or whatever you celebrate ;) )

Byee!

-Meghan

P.S Shout out to.... Delightful World of Dolls! :D

Awards

So I was nominated on three different blogs to do some awards so thank you so much Polka Dot Bee, Lord's Girls and Darling Dolls!

First award is the You Make Me Smile Award! I was nominated by Darling Dolls and Polka Dot Bee!


Rules:

1. If you've been nominated, answer the questions at the bottom of the post, and nominate five to eight doll blogs and provide five to eight questions for your nominees to answer. You can make up your own questions or just use the one I made. 

2. Link back to the original post about this award on the Oh My Dollies blog 

3. Include this list of rules in your post

4. Add the Your Blog Makes Me Happy Award image (located at the top of this post) to your sidebar or your awards page

(These rules were inspired by the Blogger Recognition Award rules because I thought they were great Blog Award rules :) )

Here are the questions from Darling Dolls:

What is your favorite winter activity?
Snow forts!
This is the one I built with my little sister and brother last year!

My sister and my dog, Murphy! 

Sugar cookies or Gingerbread cookies?
I would say Sugar Cookie. Mmmmm!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Pumpkin Pie and Yams.

Why did you start your blog?
I had a blog a long time ago called Surfer Girl but I later changed it to Summer Sunshine. That was a really boring and awful blog because I had no clue what I was really doing so I stopped blogging for a while. I loved playing with AG dolls and thought it would be fun to start an American Girl blog.

If you could go to any Ag store, what one would you go to?
The one in Florida. I've never been there, but I've seen videos and it looks awesome!

Saige or Isabelle? 
Saige. I like her story better.

And here are the questions by Polka Dot Bee:

1. Who is the person you admire the most? 
This is a hard question. I don't know...

2. What was your first memory?
Me playing in a sprinkler in my backyard and this one time when I was at the store with my mom... That's a lonnnng story so I'll try to summarize it.... When I was little I sucked my thumb and my parents couldn't get me to stop. (In all the pictures of me as a little girl, I'm sucking my thumb. I WOULD NOT STOP) So, I was sucking my thumb at the store and we were just about to leave when this old guy came up to us and he lost his thumb somehow and he told me that that's what happens when you suck your thumb. That it would fall off! So I was scared and I never sucked my thumb again. And my parents thought it was so funny and they would ask me "What happens if you suck your thumb?" And I would tell them what the guy told me and they just laughed. I didn't find out that wouldn't happen until I was like 10 years old. I'm still bitter about that....lol

3. How many doll's do you want altogether? 
15 maximum. That would be awesome!

4. Do you prefer Historical or Beforever? 
Historical.

5. If or when you have went to an AG store, what would the first thing you do their?  
Look at the dolls!


(I'm putting who I'm nominating at the end of this post and my questions for the people I nominate)

Rules:
  • Thank the person who nominated you, they will surely appreciate it! Also, leave a link back to the person who nominated you.

  • Tag ten other bloggers; our goal is to tag everyone!! Comment on the blogs you nominate so that they will know that they were tagged!
  • Add the pic above to your sidebar or award page thanking the person (or people) who tagged you.


  • Ten things I am thankful for:
    1. My family. They are awesome and they make the holidays awesome too!
    2. Freedom in America to read my bible and go to church without risks.
    3. Home School. I do love to learn and I'm glad I'm able to be home schooled!
    4. Food. Seriously, I'm so thankful that we have food when some don't.
    5. My awesome followers! You guys are amazing and I'm so blessed to be part of the AG Blogging world! 
    6. My friends. They are awesome! 
    7. Music. I agree with Guinea Pig Lover! This world would be a very sad place with music and...
    8. Color! Color is so inspirational and beautiful and I'm so thankful I get to enjoy it!
    9. God. His love never fails for me and he's always helping me and just indescribable!
    10. Murphy, my golden. He is such a sweetie and I love him so much! 
    For the Greateful Blogger Award I nominate

    Craft: Snack Shack!

    Hey everybody! So, there is this AMAZING YouTuber who makes doll crafts and she made a Lemonade Stand that looks awesome! Check out her video below!



    My sister, Heidi and I, really wanted to make this craft because we had all the materials for it. So this is how ours turned out!

    Ta Da! It turned out so cute! I'm really proud about it. Mostly because I made it together with my sister.

    Now, I'll show you some zoom ups of it! 


    The counter, I made it out of cardboard and I glued yellow scrapbook paper to it.

    This is the back. I didn't decorate it very much. But, I did add some greenish-blue paper to the shelf. I also hot glued the wooden dowels(ish thing. I don't know what it's called because it's thicker then a wooden dowel) to the cardboard.

    Side view.

    The counter. I was debating wether or not I should add a sign that said "Snack Stand''. I printed it off but decided I didn't want to add it. lol

    Here's the signs I put up! On the Menu I put Hot Dog, Funnel Cake, Fruit Kabob, Ice Cream, Cake (Chocolate and Vanilla) and Shave Ice (Strawberry, Blueberry and Mango). And Today's Special is a Tropical Berry Smoothie. Also, I wanted to add a canopy-type roof, but it would've blocked the dolls eyes. lol Make sure you cut the wooden dowels taller then the doll.... lol 



    So that's how our craft turned out! Check out My Froggy Stuff's YouTube and Blogger!

    Also, check out Lord's Girls blog because she's super awesome!!!
