Sorry for not being on much... We've all been very busy! I included a picture of Julie, just because I like to have a picture in every post! Well, just a few things:
  • Brooke has a hopelessly long couture/AG wish list
  • Brooke is playing her trombone quite well now :)
  • Today is Halloween, and I'm being a witch! (post coming Sunday or Monday)
  • I think I may be getting sick (I have a cough)
  • I have a large American History essay due very soon :( Plus a bunch of test...
Once again, sorry for not being on much. School is really keeping me busy!

Kirsten and Mia out in the forest

Today I took Kirsten and Mia out into the forest for some fall photos. It finally stopped raining, so I took the opportunity to get some pictures outside. Sorry for not the best backgrounds, most of the leaves have already fallen, are still green, or not on "AG level" (not close enough to the ground to get a picture with a doll).
I think they both look so sweet! Mia looks great in Kirsten's school dress, it goes nicely with her coloring. I think she looks really cute as an 1850s doll.

You should have noticed Kirsten is in these photos. She arrived last night, and I couldn't more thrilled, she's absolutely perfect. I read her books when I was 7 or 8, and she's always been my favorite historical character. I don't know what took me so long to get her! She is wonderful, I recommend getting her before she is archived! I can't believe AG is archiving her :( Well I can, but I can't, you know what I mean... But their business ploy (that's all that this archiving junk is) worked like a charm on me.

Ruthie has undergone a name change! Her name is now Caroline. She is the Ruthie character's twin sister, and she still is a historical living in the 1930s. Caroline, also know as Cara, is very practical and logical, not much like her twin Ruthie, who is loves fairy tales and fantasy. She is very smart as well! :)

Sorry for not posting much! Life sure is bussssy! My next post will be me with all of Brooke's musical instruments!

Well, off to do homework! I have an algebra lesson, and a report for American History!

Kirsten is heading our way!

With the free shipping code (PF99058), Brooke caved and ordered Kirsten! :) The funny thing is, Kirsten has always been her favorite historical character. Kirsten's books were the first she read, and Kirsten was always the doll she liked the most! But, for some reason, she just kept getting pushed farther and farther down the 'want list'. Until now! She will be coming in a little less than a week (hopefully). This whole archiving business scheme worked like a charm.

Happy Birthday, Nellie!

Happy Birthday, Nellie Jaclyn O' Malley!

October 15th was Nellie's birthday! :) She had a great day! Samantha, Lydia, and I threw her a small party. And guess what? Since poor Nellie doesn't have ANY clothes except her PJ's, meet dress, and winter coat, Brooke is getting her a dress for her birthday!

Brooke is letting her choose whichever one she wants, but Nellie's having a hard time deciding. We've narrowed down to two dresses from the Dollies' Dressmaker and one from terristouch. Personally, I like the striped one, just because I think it'd look better with Nellie's coloring. But I think any of them would look lovely on her. Which one do you like? Dress #1, the plaid one with the pinafore from terristouch, Dress #2, the floral green one from the Dollies' Dressmaker, or Dress #3, the striped one from the Dollies' Dressmaker? I'm making it into a poll on the sidebar (be sure to vote!). I'm not promising we'll get the one that wins, but I'm interested to see what others think.

And, another thing:
One of the main reasons Brooke founded this blog was to "get to know" me again. Brooke kind of drifted out of AG's for over a year. Then she came back strong! So, she made this blog kind of reconnect with me. She had to think about my personality, my interests, take photos, etc. Now that Brooke is selling some dolls, I think I will begin to share my blog with all the other girls here at Mondale (our school). I think it would be a lot of fun, more interesting, and give them a chance for some attention too.

Brooke added freckles to Erin (JLY 12)! She didn't want Erin to look so much like Gwen. She looks so adorable! Brooke used 2 shades of colored pencils to freckle her. Seeing how great Erin looks, I really want freckles now! But I'm not allowed :( Anyways Erin looks really cute. I'll add a picture of her tomorrow. Today there isn't very good lighting because of the cloudy, rainy weather.
Here's a few pictures! Sorry they're not the best, and you can't see the freckles too well.
Sorry for not posting much, I've been busy.

Today is a cool, crisp, sunny autumn day. Perfect weather! :) I thought I'd share a photo of Nicki I shot today.

Sorry that posts are getting fewer and fewer. Things have just been busy lately, that's all! Also, I'm sorry that myself and the other dolls have been taking over Avery's blog!

Off topic- trombone

*post by Brooke*

I got a trombone! There was one on craiglist in great condition for a seriously low price. I've been wanting to start some more instruments. Right now I play clarinet, piano, and some violin. The trombone is a lot of fun, it's a very 'quirky' instrument, if you know what I mean.

Anyways, right now I'm practicing a lot, so I won't be on much. I'll try to get a picture of Avery with all my instruments though! :)

We were tagged by jennakat!

*post by Avery, finally!*
We were tagged! :) Apparently you have to tell a funny story about something...

One day I was eating lunch (this was last year), and I had chocolate pudding. Well, I guess I'm a messy eater because I had chocolate pudding all around my mouth! No one told me, and I walked around like that for 2 hours until school was out and I noticed! I felt so stupid :P
