American Girl Store Columbus Part Four

So now we are doing……….BEFOREVER

DSCN5363

Here is the Samantha display. Isn’t it weird that the bike is pink? Pink, pink, pink. My favorite color is pink, but I still think that they should use another color! Samantha’s collection before, was much better, and seemed to be more time period.

DSCN5360

Samantha’s gazebo This was really fun to play with. The lights turn on, and with all the sets they put in there there was lots to do.

Caroline’s skiff. In most of the story, Caroline’s skiff belongs to the family. But it makes sense for american girl to make it hers.

DSCN5359

Rebecca’s bed is nice, but it really is nothing special.

DSCN5358

And Julies bed. They had it all set up like a bedroom, with her bed, chair, and vanity. Julie’s bed is beautiful.

And the mini dolls. Josefina hadn’t come out, and nether had Maryellen.

And that is all. Grace is next.

Happy birthday Kit!

Some of my pictures are on this blog

You can see them there. 

But here are my pictures on my blog of Kit’s birthday. 

DSCN4284[1]

We were all sitting around in our room.

“Today is Kit’s birthday.” I said. “Let’s do a surprise party.”

DSCN4285[1]

Samantha went to the closet and pulled some things out.

DSCN4286[1]

 

We grabbed things to give to Kit.

“I will get Kit and you rush to the fairy garden.” I told my friends.

DSCN4287[1]

I held up a bag. “This is my gift for Kit. Put your stuff in the bag and put it under the bed.”

DSCN4288[1]

While I got Kit.

DSCN4289[1]

 

My friends put the stuff in the bag.

DSCN4290[1]

And put it under the bed.

DSCN4291[1]

 

I led Kit to the garden where my friends were waiting.

DSCN4292[1]

Then we sat down and ate hot dogs.

DSCN4293[1]

Back at the house we gathered for gifts. Holly ran to get them.

DSCN4294[1]

She came back and gave the bag to Kit.

DSCN4295[1]

A laptop! Now I won’t have to use the typewriter! A headband and wallet too! Thank you!

DSCN4296[1]

Then we celebrated with cake.

Thrifty Thursday-Science and Dolls

DSCN4119[1]

Hope and Katelyn found a box by the door.

“What do you think is in it?” Hope asked.

“Let’s find out.” Katelyn answered.

DSCN4120[1]

We sat down and opened the box. It was filled with a bunch of projects.

 

DSCN4122[1]

We pulled out a light and at attached it to a battery pack.

DSCN4123[1]

Hope pulled out a guitar and started playing it.

DSCN4124[1]

We found a fan.

DSCN4127[1]

And I pulled out a scale but Samantha jumped out of the doll house and started using it as a teeter totter.  We just moved it aside.

DSCN4128[1]

I found a stick. That was not making it into our lets do this science next year cause of all this cool stuff pile.

DSCN4129[1]

Then Hope had the idea to hook the fan and lights together. It works! We looked at each other.

“MARIA!”

DSCN4130[1]

“I was in the SHOWER!” Maria grumbled

“We found this cool thing and thought that you would want to use it in camp.”

DSCN4131[1]

This is what they did with it.

 

I am getting really lazy on Thursdays. I forgot it was Thursday. (What happened to Wednesday?) and turned this into the Thursday post. But if you did cool things in science you could use them for dolls. I put the fan and lights on the same circuit to make a cool thing for the doll cafeteria. The fan is actually solar powered but you can use battery’s for it too.

The Fairy Garden

DSCN4109[1]

“Wake up, Wake up!” Ruthie yelled. “I have something that you HAVE to see!”

“Fine but this better be good or I am confining you to it for the next week.” Samantha grumbled.

DSCN4111[1]

The girls stood next to it.

“Okay, Turn around.” Ruthie said

DSCN4112[1]

We came in. It was a beautiful garden with a bench, and a swing, and a pond, and even a gazebo! Everything was a bit too small but we could sit on the bench.

“This is amazing!” Holly said.

“You fit right in.” Kit joked. “You are a plant too.”

“I wanna live here like the Hollys.” Holly replied.

“Let’s go show the mini Isabelles.” Samantha said and everyone agreed.

DSCN4110[1]

We went to the Isabelle house and got everyone.

DSCN4113[1]

We showed the garden to them and then left.

DSCN4118[1]

“This place is great.” Dancer Isabelle said.

“It is like a fairy garden with us the fairys.” Normal Isabelle said.

DSCN4116[1]

“I love the gazebo.” design Isabelle said.

“Well I love the whole place.” Dancer Isabelle said.

DSCN4114[1]

Bethany just sat on the swing and watched. I loved the swing, it really worked.

DSCN4117[1]

“It is like a little forest.” Design Isabelle said.

DSCN4115[1]

“I also love the little bridge.” She said

 

I actually made the garden at a program at the Library yesterday. It was supposed to be a fairy garden but I made it the right size for this.

LExie

Stop yelling!

Random name, Yes I know. I couldn’t think of anything better.

I have been stuck on camp lately so I went outside to think about other things.

DSCN4076[1]

I sat on the bridge and gazed at the water. It would be fun to go swimming in this during camp. I thought.

DSCN4077[1]

On the hammock I wondered how much fun camp would be.

DSCN4078[1]

I wondered how much time we would spend outdoors.

Then I decided to just go in.

DSCN4079[1]

I wasn’t prepared to come it. Grace was yelling: I can’t bake, Katelyn was rolling for a random reason and everyone else was screaming.

DSCN4081[1]\

“I know we are all excited  for camp but STOP YELLING and come with me.”

DSCN4083[1]

I took them to the doll camp

DSCN4085[1]

And the rest to the campgrounds.

 

The mini doll camp is on my dresser and I stuck the dolls in drawer to get them to stand up.

A very sad story

Ruthie hadn’t seen Kit in days so she went looking for her.

DSCN3886[1]

Kit sat by the aquirem crying.

DSCN3887[1]

“I haven’t seen you in days!” Ruthie exclaimed. Then she her friend’s face “What’s wrong?”

DSCN3892[1]

Through tears Kit managed to talk. “I was by the guinea pig cage and the mean pig bit off my fingers.”

DSCN3893[1]

Ruthie wrapped Kit up in a hug. “I will always be here for you.”

It is true that the guinea pig chewed on her fingers. Bad piggy!

New stuff- part 1

On Tuesday we went to someones house and got a bunch of stuff. I grabbed all the doll sized stuff. Part one is about the mini doll stuff and part two is about the bigger stuff.

DSCN3842[1]

“Hey, I heard there was new stuff. Lets go check it out!” Kit said

DSCN3843[1]

“It’s a bench!” Ruthie said

DSCN3844[1]

“We’ll move off so that you can sit.” the bears offered

“Thanks!” DSCN3845[1]
This bench does not belong to the dolls but they are allowed to sit there sometimes.

DSCN3846[1]

“Bye!”

DSCN3847[1]

“What’s this?” kit asked

DSCN3848[1]

“Need help with that Kit?” Abby asked

DSCN3849[1]

 

Abby pulled apart the furniture and put it down.

DSCN3850[1]

So the dolls sat down.

At first everyone thought that this was a puzzle but as soon as they took it apart it became furniture. So I took it. DSCN3851[1]

Kit went over to another table.

DSCN3852[1]

 

And Ruthie joined her.

This table was meant to have the things glued to it but the rolling pin had already come off so I just yanked the rest of the stuff off so the dolls could use it.

Stay tuned to see the bigger doll stuff.
