Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! In my family we always watch the Macy's Day Parade and and eat biscuit's with gravy and potatoes and onions for breakfast then we help cook and then eat! After our thanksgiving meal we all look through the paper and write our Christmas lists while watching Christmas movies like my Rockette's Christmas Spectacular DVD.
I finished up dressing all my dolls for Christmas today. Surprisingly I had enough outfits for all my dolls. the only doll that does not have any actual Christmas outfit is Emily and that is because I like that dress on her. This year I tried to kind of switch up the outfits that each wear (only the girl of the year). It took my 3 hours to dress them and do their hair. I got the little trees out of my closet but I am not taking them out till I get my "big" tree for my room out.

Are you ready for Christmas yet? Well Nellie is! I put her Christmas dress on her tonight and I am slowly doing it for all my dolls, because it takes about two hours to dress and do all my dolls hair so i thought that doing it slowly would be best, and then Thursday- Saturday this upcoming week I will get the tree for them out and decorate my room!

Meeting Jacqueline Dembar Greene

Today I was able to go to American Girl and meet Jacqueline Dembar Greene the author of the Rebecca series, it was from 2-4pm in Dallas. I went with my mom and since i do not have Rebecca i brought Lanie with me. Since i did not have any of her books we went to two Half Price Books to see if they had any but they did not so i actually had to buy an American Girl book for full price at the store. Jacqueline Dembar Greene was very nice and reminded me of a sweet grandmother was was different about getting to meet her was that on the table she had some items that could be found in the Rebecca books like the cupid doll and doily. I also had her sign my poster of Rebecca that i had brought from home, but since they were passing them out i also grabbed an extra one.

A few weeks back my siblings all got something and i did not so my mom said that i could get an American Girl Magazine the next time i could find one so she also let me get that.

What was neat is that they decorated the trees with letters that girls had written to them which goes with the theme of the catalogs and web store as well.

Bringing Back!

American Girl Stores this 2011 year will be continuing to allow girls to make crafts for the dolls that have been archived. Since the archiving of Samantha and Nellie they have not had any crafts for them and the same for Kirsten but i was looking on the website and saw the crafts! i am very excited because i now don't feel like the dolls just evaporated out of thin air but American Girls is still celebrating their stories.

Kirsten's Stenciled Box Craft
Felicity's Folding Fan Craft Demo
Felicity's Ball-and-Cup Game Craft
Samantha's Flower Bookmark Craft
Samantha's Lace Fan Craft

This Staurday the author of the Rebecca series will be at the American Girl Boutique and Bistro Dallas! The only problem is that Saturday is a very busy day because i have to help with a competition at my school and i don't know when it will end. I have my fingers crossed that i will be able to meet her!!!!!

No Bullying Day

So this week in my school district it is Stop Bullying week. I makes me remember Chrissa and all that her stories were about. Tomorrow is wear Purple day! The idea is good and the reason that our district is now doing it is because now if a parent can prove tat teachers and principle are negligent about their child getting bullied they can sue.

Halloween and the Rangers

Halloween was yesturday and i did not do anything! execpt for pass out some candy to some kids who came by, but most of them were friends of our family. My dogs went crazy all night! If you ask me what i did while everyone was trick-or-treating i was applying to Universities and designing my senior ad for the year book that was due yesterday at midnight. the lovely things you get to do as a senior in high school! I still need to take pictures of my dolls in their costums. i figured out that dog costumes work good for dolls if they are the size XXS ( i have a Chihuahua).

So i live in Texas and have been following the Rangers in the World series. What is cool is that i know several people who were able to attend some of the games when they were here. Sad to say that the Giants won the whole thing.
