Another Holiday Tag

I saw this tag on Priya's blog and thought it looked fun!

-What is your favorite December Holiday decoration?
Lights! My dad and I put some up on our front porch the weekend after Thanksgiving, and we put more on the tree last night.
- Do you have your decorations up yet?
Some of them; the lights are up but we haven't put ornaments on the tree yet.
- When do you start listening to Xmas carols and setting up?

The day after Thanksgiving.
- When did you get your tree (if you have one..)?

The day after Thanksgiving (It's a family tradition!) :)
- How do you celebrate BEFORE Christmas?

We go to the candle light service at my church (which is tonight!) and listen to Christmas songs.
- Do you have any advent calendars?

Yes, five!
- What do your dolls do to celebrate?

They like to stand in holiday scenes, and ussually the drama club does something (*hint, hint* ;)

Also, I entered the Holiday photo contest at Our Dolls! Please vote for me, I'm the non-adult Katie!

Thanks for looking!!!! :)

Priya's Holiday Foodie Tag!!

Hey guys! I just realized Priya tagged me a couple of days ago! The tag looked really fun, so here goes!

1. What’s your favorite holiday food?
Hmmmm, I'm going to have to go with my Grandma's sugar cookies. There're really yummy and we decorate them with colored sugar or cinnamon sugar (depending on what color we want) My mom and I made some last weekend and we finished them already! She said maybe we can make some next weekend. :)

2. Eggnog or hot cocoa?
Hot cocoa, especially Ghirrideli (forgive the terrible spelling). There's nothing like playing outside in the snow and then coming in to a warm cup of hot chocolate. :)

3. Have you ever eaten a non-dessert dish shaped as a holiday symbol (Christmas tree, menorah, etc.)?
Yes! I ate Christmas tree and Snowman shaped bagels once. They were really yummy! :)

4. Do you know what a latke is? If so, have you ever eaten one?
I do know what a latke is, but I always pronounce it wrong and then my Jewish friends laugh at me, lol :). I have eaten many latkes and they are very yummy!

5. What is the first food-and-holiday-related word that comes to your mind?
Milk and cookies :)

6. What is your favorite holiday food to cook with your family/friends?
My Grandma's sugar cookies. They're the kind you use cookie cutters for, and I love, love, LOVE cutting them out. :) I may be a teenager but I'm a four-year-old at heart :)

I tag Emma S., Emma Wright, Hannah Wright, and anybody who got hungry while reading this!

ONLY 14 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! :D :D :D (Like I said, 4-year-old at heart)

Bye! Thanks for reading!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

Hey guys! It's only 15 days until Christmas!

I thought I'd show everyone who didn't get to see it last year my doll play that I did last year! I did 'A Christmas Carol'. I think I'm probably going to do another play this year, but it probably won't be quite as long and I may not have time to finish it before Christmas. (Stupid homework and tests!)

Anyway, are your dolls getting ready for Christmas/Chunnakuh? What are they doing?

I found some really cool crafts for the Holiday season:

There are a bunch at Our Dolls. The links weren't working right, but all you have to do to find the crafts is click on  Doll Holidays and Activities , then click on  Current Holiday: Christmas. All of the craft look super fun and easy, but my favorites are the wreaths and the paper chains. :) There are also a bunch of cute photostories about Christmas time.

Doll Menorah! (Just for you, Priya!) This looks really cute and I would definately make one for my dolls if I celebrated Chunnakuh. This craft is from Karen at Doll Diaries.

Thanks for looking!

Christmas is Coming!

Hey! I just set up my doll displays for Christmas and thought I'd share! :) I'll probably recreate one of the scenes in a better place to take a picture for the Our Dolls Christmas photo contest. Here are the scenes:

Molly and Emily hurrying to a holiday party! I LOVE this one so much! Emlily's so coordinated her gift for the hostess matches her dress! : D

I love her hairstyle here soooo much!

I love Molly's coat and earmuffs!

Kit and Kailey are wrapping Christmas presents! (See that wreath there? I made that completely out of beads, safety pins and ribbon last year. It took me FOREVER to make so just had to incorporate it some how!)

Blurry and yet still cute :)

It's so easy to forget how gorgeous Kailey is! (This might be her new profile picture!)

And Kit wanted a close up because everyone else was getting one! (I don't know why her eyes look so weird . . . they don't look like that in real life!) 
And here's my eleven year old bitty, Robby, who I dressed in snow man PJ's.

And the biggest display! (This one took over an hour!)


Their tree! It's tiny, but I set it on a platform to make it look a little bigger. And my mom was sweet enough to pick up some mini ornaments for me earlier this week :)

At the top of the tree we have the cyclops angel (one of her eyes fell off). My mom calls it the winking angel.

Looks like Santa came!!!! : D

And a cute note :)

Thanks for looking, and please comment and say which display is your favorite!

What are YOUR dolls doing for Christmas?


A little late, I know, but I wanted to show you what my dolls dressed up as for Halloween!

Kirsten and Chrissa went as opposites- a cute devil and a modest angel!

Kailey was one of her heroes, Annie Oakly. She was a big trick shooter at the turn of the last century. Google her, she's pretty cool :)

And Sandy went as her horse, hehehe

Kit also went as her hero, who, of couse, is Amelia Earhart.

Molly went as Laura Ingals Wilder.

And Emily went as a French Sailor!

I am quite proud of the French Braids I gave her :)

Group shot!

And another for good measure.

Thanks for looking!
