Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree!

*picture heavy post!*
Today we set up our doll sized holiday tree! :) It was so much fun. We put on the lights, garland, green and gold bulbs, and other ornaments as well. We couldn't find a star for the topper, so we just used a red bow instead. We also placed a few presents underneath. I think it turned out very nice. We're really in the holiday spirit now!

Brooke has also been working on a project the week or so- a fire place! She just finished it today, and it's perfect for the holidays. It isn't the greatest, but it looks good in the room. It makes everything look so warm and cozy, just like winter! It really finishes the scene, if you know what I mean. Plus, it was really simple to make (if anyone wants to know how to make their own, comment and I'll tell you! It is insanely simple and can be a one day project! All you need is cardboard or wood and some paint!) Us dolls scavenged around the house to find some things to put on the mantle. We came up with two candles, a mirror, a snow globe, and a clock. There's also a nativity scene at the base of the fire place. I told Brooke we need to find a menorah, so we'll have to get that soon. If you don't know, I'm 1/2 Jewish, so I celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah (which starts December 11th)

After everything was done, Erin, Chrissa, Sonali, and Mia put on their holiday dresses and posed for some photos! Don't they look pretty?
Well, without further ado, here is our finished holiday set up!

And here are their Holiday 2009 portraits:
We hope you enjoy!



  1. I love your photos! They are eye candy :D

    Your tree and fireplace are beautiful. Brooke did an excellent job with the fireplace!

    The presents look really pretty too. I wonder where that little red double-box is from? And do I spy a Liberty Jane package? ;D

    The portraits are lovely, especially Sonali and Chrissa.

    Merry Christmas & Happy Hannukah!

  2. Your fireplace is very cool! I love your holiday set up! :-)
    The holiday portraits are beautiful. I especially love the blue dress Chrissa is wearing. It brings out the pretty blue in her eyes!
    Happy holidays, Brooke and Avery!


  3. Wow! The pictures are gorgeous! Will you put the other dolls' portraits up? I would love to see them!
    Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah!

  4. Very pretty! I love your new fireplace.


  5. Tres tres tres belle! Your fireplace is amazing…so is the tree! Everything is just beautiful!
    I absolutely adore your set up!

  6. I love the Christmas set-up! And I especially love the portraits. I can't get enough of your Sonali :)

  7. I celebrate Hannukah too! But not Christmas 'cause I am whole Jewish!

  8. Wow, your friend Chrissa looks great in that dress! It's a good thing Spencer got Meg, or she'd be going crazy right now ;) I'd love to learn how to make that fireplace, I have one, but it's not as nice as yours.

  9. How beautiful!

    I would be grateful to learn about the fireplace, I am AGPhotographer on Youtube and I would appreciate a how-to message. :)
