'Twas the night before Christmas...

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads..

Merry Christmas!

Ellie the elf is back!

Hi, Friends! Sorry, it has been so long since I posted. I have been busy, busy, busy. I hope to post more in the next few weeks about our Christmas and introduce you to a couple of new girls that have moved into my neighborhood. They are really nice and will start at my school next semester. Well, on December 1st my elf, Ellie came back to my house from the North Pole. I found her on a rocking horse and I have had fun seeing where she is every morning when I wake up. I took some photos to share some of my favorite spots she has been in the mornings. I will post again soon!

Happy Birthday, Lily Rose!

 Hello! Hope everyone has had a great week!  Last Friday was really my birthday but we held my party yesterday. I invited my friends but Paisley couldn't come because she is sick. We had a great time. Instead of gifts I asked my friends to bring bags of cat food and dog food to donate to our local Humane society. We recently added Sassy to our family. She has been a lot of fun and Hershey really likes her. They both came from the shelter so we wanted to help them out. Mom did surprise me with a gift though. And I was really surprised! Check out the pictures below from my party! There is a new girl that has moved into the neighborhood. I am going to invite her to go trick or treating with me and my friends on Halloween. Hopefully we can become great friends!

Catch ya later!

Talk like a Pirate Day!

Ahoy, maties! Autumn is coming and yesterday it was TLAPD. In honor I dressed up as a pirate and mom took some photos of me! I also went to Krispy Kreme and got a free dozen donuts which mom made me share. She thought 12 donuts would make me sick. It was a fun day.. Pictures below!

Catch ya later!

Back to School!

Well, it's that time of year again! I am sooo excited to be back in school and starting 6th grade this week! Some of my friends I haven't seen all summer. I think I am really going to love my teacher Miss Charley. She is really nice. Mom took some first day of school pictures. I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses. Kit and Ruthie even got their picture made. They are best friends and love to wear old fashioned things. Have you started school yet? What grade are you in this year?

Catch ya later!

Miss AGPT-Round #4- Wild Card Round

This is it! The last round and I can't wait to see the results. It has been a lot of fun. My last picture was really simple:

The day I took Paisley outside it was relatively cool and less humid than it usually is in July in MS. I just wanted to stretch out in the grass and lay in the sun. So that is what I did for this last photo. Paisley is enjoying the nice summer day. School is about to start here so summer is quickly coming to an end and I thought this photo screamed last days of summer.

Thanks for keeping up with my contest entries! Hope you have enjoyed the photos.

Miss AGPT-Round #3- Thrilling

Hi, Sorry this post is late, it has been a crazy week. Round #3 was a fun, yet challenging round. I knew exactly what I was going to do for this round from the get go but the execution of this photo was the challenge. For this round I submitted this photo:

Zip lining is one of the most thrilling things I have ever done. White water rafting is a close second but I figured this would be easier of the two to execute. My sister ever so kindly helped me with this round and after I got so frustrated with trying to get this photo to work, she took over and I successfully was able to take this photo. I was pleased with how it turned out. I think it looks pretty realistic. Anyway, everyone had different interpretations of this round and I loved the creativity. One more round to go and it is due tonight. I will update this week with my last submission.
Thanks for reading!

Miss AGPT-Round #2- Forever

This round was quite challenging if I have to say so myself. I kept thinking and thinking what represents forever? Finally, I decided on this photo:


Pets love us forever and quickly become a integrated part of our families so I thought this photo is a good interpretation of Forever. Everyone did a great job with this round. It was neat to see the different interpretations of Forever. Can't wait for next week!

Miss AGPT- Round #1- Patriotic

First off, I hope you and your family enjoyed a great July 4th weekend! This month I am participating in Miss AGPT on the American Girl Playthings Forum. I entered my #48, Paisley.  Round #1 is Patriotic and I submitted this picture:

One of my family's traditions for Independence Day is making homemade ice cream. I wanted to capture that in this round so Berkley joined Paisley for some cold homemade fun. The girls dressed in their most patriotic clothing and this picture came together. I was pleased with the colors. Looks like it is going to be a fun month. There are so many talented members. I can't wait to see what the other rounds hold.

And for fun here is another variation of this photo:

Felicity goes a'walkin!

 It was a warm late spring day. Felicity had finished her chores and Momma gave her permission to walk to the Cole's house to see Elizabeth. Felicity ditched her sun bonnet when Momma wasn't looking. Freckles didn't concern her very much anyway and the bonnet just got in the way of having fun. She thought she'd take her time on the walk to the Cole's. She was walking down the path and spotted some pretty purple flowers. "These would be wonderful to take back to Momma," she thought.

Soon, Felicity decided to walk to her favorite climbing tree. She loved sitting in this tree and watching the townspeople go by. Climbing the tree was very un-ladylike, Momma would be angry with her if she knew about it. Felicity was supposed to be acting like a gentlewoman and a gentlewoman certainly didn't climb trees.

 "Ahhhhhh, I love this warmer weather and I just can't wait until summer... I love going to Grandfather's plantation and spending time with him!"
"Well, I best be on my way to the Cole's.. I have lots of things to tell Elizabeth!"
