And now, onto the epic Christmas photostory I promised you! (Apologies in advance for any blurry/dark pictures!)

DSC_0546

“Can we open presents now?” Lindsey begs.

 

DSC_0549

“Why not?” Crystal replies. “It is Christmas, after all.”

DSC_0551

“I think this one is for you, Lindsey,” Molly says, handing Lindsey a bright red bag.

DSC_0552

Lindsey unwraps the present.

DSC_0554

The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict!” she squeals. “Thank you thank you thank you!!!”

DSC_0555

“This one is yours, Grace,” Morgan says sweetly, holding up a brown box tied with a bright red bow.

DSC_0557

Grace opens the box. “Earrings!”

DSC_0559

DSC_0560

“This one is for you, Morgan,” Emily tells her sister softly.

DSC_0561

“Aw, a chew toy for Chocolate Chip! He’ll love it – thank you!” Morgan exclaims.

DSC_0563

“Now, here’s your present, Em,” Morgan says, handing Emily a Santa Claus bag.

DSC_0564

Emily pulls out the wrapping paper.

DSC_0565

“Oh, a music book!”

DSC_0566

“Thank you, everybody.”

DSC_0567

“Hey, Crystal, here’s yours,” Molly tells Crystal, holding up her present.

DSC_0569

“Oh, for me?” Crystal asks. “Thank you.”

DSC_0570

“Eek! A fairy costume! Hold on, let me go put it on!” Crystal shrieks.

DSC_0572

She returns a few minutes later wearing the glitzy costume.

DSC_0573

“McKenna, this one is yours,” Lindsey says.

DSC_0574

McKenna opens the box excitedly. “A FITBIT!!!!”

DSC_0575

“It fits perfectly!” McKenna exclaims. “You guys are da best!”

DSC_0576

“Here, Molly,” Grace says, holding up an owl bag. “I think this one is yours.”

DSC_0577

Molly pulls out the tissue paper, practically smothering herself.

DSC_0578

“SAT Secrets! It’s just what I wanted!” Molly exclaims. “Thank you so much!”

DSC_0579

Lindsey snorts ungracefully.

DSC_0580

Emily elbows her. “Lindsey.”

All of a sudden, the doorbell rings.

DSC_0581

“Hey, who’s going to get that?” McKenna asks. “We’re all in our pajamas.”

DSC_0582

“I’ll get it,” Crystal answers. “I’m the only one not in my PJs.”

DSC_0583

“Um, Crystal, maybe you shouldn’t-”

DSC_0586

Crystal ingores her and jets up the stairs in her fairy costume.

DSC_0587

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

DSC_0588

“Oh, my apologies,” Crystal says, sliding her fairy mask on top of her head.

DSC_0589

“Is this the American Girls in Alaska family?” the girl asks in a Southern accent.

DSC_0590

Crystal nods. “Yes, it is. I’m Crystal.”

DSC_0591

“Hey, who’s this?” Grace asks, bounding up the stairs.

DSC_0592

“I have no idea,” Crystal replies.

DSC_0594

“I’m Tessa,” the girl says in a Southern accent.

DSC_0595

“Hey, I’m Grace,” Grace introduces herself.

DSC_0597

Molly suddenly appears out of nowhere. “Hello. I’m Molly. Sorry we’re all in our pajamas.”

DSC_0598

“It’s fine,” Tessa says. “It’s nice to meet you.”

DSC_0599

“Hey, who’re you?” Lindsey asks rudely.

DSC_0600

“Lindsey, be nice,” Morgan chides, appearing behind Lindsey. “Hi, I’m Morgan, and this is Lindsey.”

DSC_0601

“Are you our new sister?” McKenna asks. “Hi, I’m McKenna.”

DSC_0603

“And this is Emily,” Morgan says, prodding Emily forward.

DSC_0605

“Why don’t you come downstairs?” Crystal asks Tessa.

DSC_0594

“Alright,” Tessa agrees.

DSC_0584

Back downstairs, Morgan says, “We’re so sorry, Tessa. We don’t have a present for you.”

DSC_0585

“Yes, you do,” Tessa tells her. “You’re my new family. And that’s the best thing I could ask for.”

WELCOME TESSA!

Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #11: Christmas is . . . Caroling

Okay, everybody! This is it! The last TDOC post before Day #12 – Christmas!!!!! Can you believe it’s just one day away???

ONE. DAY.

I can’t believe it, either. In the meantime, here’s a very, very short photostory!

There’s a knock on the door. I rush over to answer it.

DSC_0534

It’s carolers! (Sorry this picture is so dark.)

DSC_0536

“Hi,” I squeak nervously. I’ve never been very good around people.

(Also, now you can see how amazing Em’s hair looks!)

DSC_0537

“Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Fa la la la la, la la la la!” they sing merrily.

DSC_0538

“Troll the ancient yuletide carol, fa la la la la, la la la la.”

DSC_0541

“Thank you so much!” I cry. “Merry Christmas!”

DSC_0543

Okay, that was it. This post is super short because I HAVE to get to work on my Christmas photostory. It’s going to take a long time to do, so I’ve gotta go!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Countdown to Christmas: One day!

Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #10: Christmas is . . . Holiday Hairstyles

Day #10???? Say what now????? 

Yep! It’s Day #10 of TDOC here on American Girls in Alaska. Today I will be doing my first ever hair tutorial! I will be showing you two cute holiday hairstyles, as modeled by Grace and Emily!

Style #1: Flipped Braid Bun

Step 1: Braid your doll’s hair.

DSC_0520

Step 2: Grab the braid by the end and pull it up. (My mom is holding it here, Grace’s hair is not floating.) 🙂

DSC_0521

Step 3: Tuck the elastic part under the braid.

DSC_0522

Step 4: Bobby pin the braid so that it stucks to the doll’s head.

DSC_0523

Ta-da! Simple and chic!

DSC_0524

DSC_0525

Hairstyle #2: French Twist Braid

Step 1: Seperate a small section of hair from the doll’s head.

DSC_0526

Step 2: Seperate that section in two.

DSC_0527

Step 3: Cross the left section over the right section.

DSC_0528

Step 4: This is a bit hard to explain, but you’re going to take hair from the rest of the doll’s head and add it to the the section on the left (the one that is hanging down).

DSC_0529

Step 5: (Sorry, this one is a little blurry.) Pull the left section over the right one. (Like you’re twisting it, which is technically what you are doing.)

DSC_0530

Step 6: Continue to grab hair and add it to the section hanging down before twisting that section over. If you know how to French braid, this should be very simple.

DSC_0531

DSC_0533

Sadly, my picture of the side of her hair would not upload, but it looked really cool! 😦

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you try these styles, send pictures to americangirlsak@gmail.com!

Just a friendly reminder, tomorrow is the last day to enter my giveaway. 🙂

Happy-Almost-Christmas, friends!

Today’s TDOC post is a winter lookbook. Not all of these looks are Christmas-themed, as I don’t have very many Christmas clothes. I would love it if you guys commented on which outfit you liked the most!

DSC_0393

First up, we have this lovely outfit Morgan is modeling! She is wearing McKenna’s school outfit, a sweat that I’ve had forever, and a headband I made!

DSC_0401

Here’s Emily! She’s wearing coveralls that came out of nowhere, the True Spirit AG meet outfit shirt, the Real Me AG meet outfit pants and shoes, and Emily’s Holiday Outfit necklace. Sorry the shoes aren’t showing.

DSC_0398

Molly is wearing her meet outfit skirt and shoes and Molly’s Holiday Outfit sweater.

DSC_0409

Lastly, Lindsey is wearing some random AG pants that totally don’t fit her, her meet necklace and meet sweater, and the shoes from an AG Easter outfit.

Alright, that’s all for the outfits! Don’t forget to vote on which one you liked best in the comments!

Countdown to Christmas: Seven days!

Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #4: Christmas is . . . Baking

DSC_0280

Hi, everyone! It’s Grace here! Today, we’re going to be making some delicious Christmas cookies!

Bonus: this recipe can actually be followed and used to make real-life cookies! However, American Girls in Alaska is not responsible for any injury, damage, or death that will not occur while making these cookies, but she has to say that just in case anyone does anything stupid.

The supplies you will need for this recipe are: 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 eggs, and sprinkes.

DSC_0284

But before you mix anything, preheat the over to 375° degrees Fahrenheit.

DSC_0285

Step 1: In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well and set aside.

DSC_0287

Okay, I’ve got it!

DSC_0289

Step 2: In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or a firm wooden spoon, mix the butter until it’s creamy and lighter in color.

DSC_0292

Step 3: Mix in the brown and white sugars.

DSC_0294

Step 4: Add the vanilla and eggs. Sorry the eggs weren’t showing in the ingredients picture!

DSC_0297

Step 5: Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture.

DSC_0298

Ta-da!

DSC_0300

Step 6:  Make little cookie balls that are the size of the rounded part of the spoon.

DSC_0303

Like these here!

DSC_0305

Step 7: This is my favorite part! Flatten the cookies slightly and shake holiday sprinkles on top.

Step 8: Place them onto ungreased baking sheets and bake them for 8-12 minutes!

DSC_0308

This is how the cookies turned out!

DSC_0313DSC_0317DSC_0312DSC_0309DSC_0314DSC_0315

Sorry some of these images are weird, the camera wasn’t focusing right. It was going in and out and in and out really fast.

Anyway, a bonus picture to show you the giant mess these made!

DSC_0318

AGs in Alaska had to wipe her hands on tissue paper for wrapping presents before taking pictures.

Anyway, hope you guys liked this post! If you make these, shoot us a picture or two at americangirlsak@gmail.com, or through our Contact Page. 🙂

This recipe is from The First Book of Baking by Jeanne Besser, and the recipe credits go to her. 🙂

Alright, see y’all tomorrow! Au revoir!

Countdown to Christmas: Eight days!

The Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #3: Christmas is . . . Giving

Hi, Christmas cookies! I hope you’re having a blessed Saturday. Are any of you going to Christmas parties today?

Wait. Did I just say . . . GIVING????

As in . . . A GIVEAWAY???

Oh, yes. Yes I did. It’s time for . . .

AGS IN ALASKA’S FIRST-EVER GIVEAWAY!!!!

I totally wish there was a way to make all caps, all caps. Because that’s how I feel right now!!!

Okay, I’ll skip to the good part. I’m sure you’re all wondering by now what I’m giving away, and not just reading my endless banter. I’ll happily oblige.

I am giving away . . .

Emily’s Holiday Dress!

DSC_0378

Emily is standing on our deck railing, and I am hoping she is not going to fall off like Grace fell off a gazebo in Washington.

Back to the giveaway. A quick thing you should know is that this dress is NOT BRAND-NEW. I bought it used off of Ebay with a few other outfits in a package. Since I already own this dress, I thought I would give this one away. It has been GENTLY USED, but it is not BRAND-NEW. The dress does not smell like smoke or even laundry soap. As you can tell from the picture, it’s still gorgeous.

It’s also a retired outfit from American Girl, so that may bring some extra appeal.

DSC_0379

Of course, a few pictures for a giveaway quickly turned into a photoshoot.

DSC_0382

Please note that the necklace Emily is wearing will not be included in the giveaway.

Countdown to Christmas: Nine days!

The Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #1: Christmas is . . . Decorating

Okay, merry reindeer! This is the moment you have all been waiting for!

CHRISTMAS POSTS!

I’m sure you have all been thinking, “When is AGs in Alaska going to post Christmas stuff?” Well, never fear, that day has finally arrived!

For Christmas 2017, I am doing The Twelve Days of Christmas. Two things: one, I am not copying anyone else who does The Twelve Days of Christmas (TDOC, because typing the whole thing out takes, like, three extra seconds), I have actually been planning to do TDOC for a while now. Two, I am aware that the actual TDOC are actually after Christmas, but I don’t want to do twelve Chrismtas posts after Christmas.

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, we’re going to get started with TDOC Post #1!

Presenting . . .

Our Christmas Tree!

DSC_0237

This is the bare tree, before we decorated it! It went from an ordinary tree from the forest (okay, Michael’s), to a lovely decorated tree in thirty minutes!

DSC_0238

I don’t know why this picture is blurry. #c’estlaphotovie

Anyway, Crystal is stringing lights up on the tree. She used mini twinkle lights and they are soooo pretty when it lit up!

DSC_0239

Also, some of these pictures are super dark and some of them aren’t. It’s weird. 😦

DSC_0240

I swear the lights were on in my the girls’ room when they did this!

DSC_0247

 

Time to start putting on the ornaments! Michael’s has a great selection of mini Christmas decorations. Or at least they did when I the girls bought their supplies. At this time of December, they’re probably all out.

DSC_0249

Here, Morgan and Molly are placing the little balls on the tree. (Again, the lights were on, my curtains were pulled back, and I had a lamp for extra light! Grrrrr. At least you can see how pretty the lights are!

DSC_0256

WHY IS IT SO BLURRY????

Crystal: AGs in Alaska, stop taking over! We get it that you don’t like the bluriness!

AGs in Alaska: Don’t you sass me, young lady!

Crystal: (dramatic sigh) Fine!

DSC_0260

And this is Crystal putting the topper on the tree! Isn’t it beautiful? Notice how it’s more like zip-tied and less of “put on” the tree. That’s because Crystal bought a topper that was was too heavy for the tree!

Crystal: Hey, all girls make mistakes.

DSC_0264

Time for presents!

DSC_0272

And this is what the finished tree looks like! For our first-ever tree, we think it turned out pretty great. What about you guys?

AGs in Alaska: Okay, I’m taking over now.

Crystal: Noooooooooooooooo!

Okay, everybody, that’s it for our first TDOC post. We will have one every day until December 25th, when I will do our epic Christmas photostory. And trust me, it will be epic.

Toodles for now!

Countdown to Christmas: Eleven days!

How I Customized My Blog For The Holidays

Hi, everybody! Oh my gosh, Christmas is in TWO WEEKS!!!!! Eek! Who’s excited????

You may have noticed something different about my blog, or at least I hope you did. If you didn’t, then you’re a very bad child and should be put on Santa’s naughty list. 🙂 XD

Okay, if you haven’t already noticed, I redid my blog in honor of the Christmas season. It literally only took me three minutes, but I couldn’t figure out what to post today, so this is what you get.

First, I went to my WordPress dashboard and clicked Customize. Don’t click Themes, which is right next to it, or it will just take you to your different theme options.

Next, go to Colors and Backgrounds. I clicked on Palettes for my green color, but instead of having white on the side of my blog, I went to Manual and chose the red color that they had displayed. Then I clicked on “Pick Your Own Color” and changed the dark red they had to a brighter shade of red.

I then slected the little photo button up at the top to choose my header image. I found a picture of Molly with a present and cropped that to fit. Guys, if you have the same theme as me, you probably understand how hard it is to find a picture that will look nice in that tiny little space AND not make the words unreadable, especially since you can’t change the font color. Unless you can and I haven’t figured it out yet.

Lastly, I clicked “Publish” and went back to my dashboard. Then, I clicked Settings. In General, there will be a button that will make it snow. You change that to ON and then your blog will have snow! It’s really super easy, I was expecting it to be a lot harder to do that. But nope!

I hope this tutorial helped in case you were wondering how to do any of these things, which you probably weren’t, but if you wanted to make it snow and couldn’t figure out how, then maybe this helped you!

Alright, that’s all for now! CHRISTMAS POSTS START ON THURSDAY!!!!

Also, real quick, Emmie is hosting an awards “show” called the Emmie Awards! Please check it out here, and if you think I am worthy of any such nominations, please nominate me! https://pheonixamericangirlworld.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/introducing-the-emmie-awards/

AGs in Alaska

Do you like my new holiday sign-off? I did it on Canva in three minutes. 🙂

While I Was Away . . .

Prepare yourselves, people. This is going to be one big blog post.

Remember how I had all of my posts scheduled for the month of November? Because of that, I was unable to do tags or awards. Now that’s it’s December, I can do the SIX awards and tags I’ve been nominated for!!!!!

That’s right! SIX!!!

Like I said, long blog post.

However, there is one tag I will not be doing until later on this month. It is The Holiday Tag, and I was nominated for it by the Blogging Doll Sisters. The reason I am not doing it today is because it involves having holiday decorations up and mine will not be revealed for another week or so.

Because I have five entire tags/awards to do, I may not be able to nominate/tag the specified number of people for each one. Sorry about that. I’m aiming to select two-three people for each.

Without further ado, let’s get started with the Blogger Recognition Award!

Here are the rules:

Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Select (up to 15) other bloggers for this award.
Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and provide a link to the post you created.

I wwas nominated for this award by Bella. Bella is a super-sweet blogger, and I love to read her posts! If you haven’t already checked her blog out, it’s definitely worth your time. 🙂

I started American Girls in Alaska right after I finished my previous blog. I really wanted to have a blog, so I got my mom’s permission and started thinking about what kind of blog I wanted it to be about. I was trying to decide between a pet blog or a doll blog when Loren from Happy House of AG inspired me to start a doll blog! I realized how fun it would be to do one.

My two pieces of advice are  . . .

DON’T let blogging take up all of your time. You can easily get sucked into your WordPress reader and notifications bar, replying to comments and whatnot. Get all of your schoolwork/chores done FIRST.

DON’T let other blogger’s blogging styles make you feel like you should change your own. Don’t compare your pictures, writing styles, etc. to yours. You are a unique blogger – don’t change!

The bloggers I choose to nominate are . . .

The Blog Dolly!

and . . .

Twintastic AG!

Congrats, girls!

My next one is a tag. It’s called the Fall Themed Tag, and I was nominated for it by The Blog Dolly. Thank you so much, Jenna! Jenna has an awesome blog that just got a new customization, so definitely go check it out. 🙂
