“Can we open presents now?” Lindsey begs.

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

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

Lindsey unwraps the present.

Emily pulls out the wrapping paper.

“Oh, a music book!”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!”

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 #9: Christmas is . . . Ice Skating

Day #9 already!?!? Can you believe it?!?! I can’t wait for Christmas!!!

And, in the spirit of the season, I did an ice skating photoshoot of Molly! If you like this photoshoot, check out AG Doll Adventure’s ice skating photoshoot here. Coincidentally, we did ours on the same day!

The poem, Frozen Floor, is one I wrote myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Did you like it? I wrote the poem about a month ago, but I never realized how well it would fit with this photoshoot.

Quick story, when I was skating, there was this boy there who was like, “Mom, there’s this girl taking pictures of her doll.” Why is it that people don’t think that dolls are for bigger girls, too??? Amiright???

See you all tomorrow!

Twelve Days of Christmas, Day #5: Christmas is . . . Warm Clothes

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!
