The Dolls’ Christmas Outfits

Merry Christmas!

I hope you are having a good one!



Yesterday (After I spent most of the morning cleaning my room, of course) I dressed all of my dolls in Christmassy (Or wintery, I only have so many red doll pieces.) attire. I was going to post about it last night, but didn’t get a chance.

So first of all I undressed all the dolls thinking random thoughts like “I thought this was Abby, why am I doing Joy?” “How did I get so many dolls?” “Where is Mckenna? And Hope, and Faith, and…Oh, I forgot to get that shelf of dolls.” Etc. Then I put the clothes away. Then I picked out sixteen Christmassy or winter outfits. (Actually I counted first. How did I get so many dolls?) Then I laid them out and dressed one doll at a time, picking an outfit for the doll as I dressed it.

And now here they are.

All of them

First of all, here is all of the dolls along one of the purple walls in my room. (We repainted last summer, and I love the walls being purple.)

As you can see, not all of the dolls are in red or green. I only have so many pieces of red and green doll clothing.

Now here are pictures of each doll next to my mini Christmas tree. It’s blue, so not all of the outfits match, but whatever. The dolls are in no specific order, just the order the computer chose.

Riley's potrait

Here is Riley. I love the red of her hair against the outfit. (And the tree, and the wall, and the floor, you get it.)

Oliva's potrait

This is Olivia. She is a doll I randomly got at the thrift store one day. I had a bunch of dolls I was going to give away, but that might not happen. Her dress came on an also thrift store doll, but it’s perfect for Christmas.

Mia's portrait

Mia’s outfit is kind of random, and I’m not sure I like it, but it’s okay. She’s wearing a tree skirt from the dollar store I bought a few years ago. It looked bad the first year, (It kept falling down, and there are probably pictures you could find of Mckenna in her underwear,) but I finally got it to stay, and it doesn’t look bad now.

Mckenna's Portrait

Mckenna refused to wear a skirt, or really anything nice, but she agreed to wear the green shrug. She wouldn’t change into matching shoes, insisting that it was Christmas and she should be allowed to wear comfortable shoes.

Maria's Portrait

In person Maria’s shirt and skirt and shoes match, but not in pictures I guess. And her shirt looks a lot more like pajamas than I would like. It’s festive at least…

Lea's portrait

Ooh, I love this picture. Nothing about Lea is Christmassy, but she looks nice.

Kaitlyn's portrait

The dress Kaitlyn is wearing I made a long time ago. I don’t like it as much as I used to, but the fabric is perfect for Christmas.

Joy's Potrait

Joy isn’t looking at the camera, but I love this one all the same. She kind of looks like a dancer, which she’s not, she’s a writer, but it looks nice all the same.

Jenny's Portrait

Ha! I knew this dress would be useful for something someday. Jenny doesn’t care if she looks old fashioned.

Hope's Portrait

And, Hope is wearing rain boots. Why? It snowed here! (For the first time I can remember we got a white Christmas!!!)

Grace's Portrait

I love this one. Grace is all blue. Even her earrings are blue, though you can’t see them. And her shoes match the hat, which sparkles everywhere, and the sweater.

Callie's Portrait

Callie! I love Callie. For Christmas, my little cousin received a doll from our Grandparents. Callie. My Grandma had asked advice from me on which one to get, and I told her that as far as off brand dolls go, I love the Journey Girls. So now my cousin has Callie too!

Gabi and Keirra's Portrait

Kierra wanted to be in a picture with her sister. Her outfit doesn’t match at all, but she insisted on wearing the leggings so she “wouldn’t be cold.” I don’t know why she can’t wear shoes, but no shoes for Kierra.

Faith's Potratit

I finally have given up on Faith being older than the rest. She doesn’t look like it, and none of my doll clothes make her look older.

Eileen's Potratit

For Eileen’s outfit, it was the same as mine yesterday. Last year I made myself a red and green plaid skirt, and a doll one to match. Since Eileen is my mini me, she wore it, though the proportions are better on mine. Her outfit is mostly the same, except I had a black turtleneck, a necklace, and headband (Which was actually a necklace, and kept falling down, but was otherwise cool.)

Abby's Portrait

And now Abby. Normally I don’t like Abby’s outfits or pictures very much, but I like this one a lot.


So there are my dolls in their Christmas outfits this year. I hope you enjoyed.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve Fun


All the dolls (Except Sandie who was at a dance meet.) gathered in the living room. Now fourteen girls fills any living room, but this one happened to be very small. Squished to each other the girls gathered to hear what Faith had to say.


Faith started talking.

“Last year only Mckenna was here. On Christmas Eve though, Three more girls came. Now we have fifteen.”

“Fourteen.” Someone corrected.

“Fifteen.” Faith smiled really big, and called Mary Lyn out.


A girl came out. She had blonde hair and brown eyes. Although she seemed somewhat shy she said her name and curtsied. “I’m Mary Lyn.”


She then sat down.


Faith continued. “Now that we have fifteen dolls the traditions have changed. Ready to hear what we are doing this year?” Fourteen girls cheered. DSCN6535[1]

“As you may have noticed, this room is cramped. So is the rest of the house. So I decided something.” She paused for effect.” We are moving.” The room erupted into cheers, groans, and confused crys.”The house we are moving to is bigger, lots bigger. We should be moved by valentines day. It’s a nicer house, but it will take some adjustments. I spent most of our Christmas money on moving, so no gifts from me. Instead we are doing a gift exchange.”


Mckenna held up a bucket and tossed it to Eileen.


She got it and grabbed a slip of paper.


It flew around the room, all the way to Katelyn.


All eyes flew to Faith as she started talking. “On Christmas Eve we will open those gifts, celebrate the girls birthdays, and bake Christmas cookies. We’ll go to bed with a book and chocolate, and in the morning dress in our Christmas clothes. On Christmas we’ll play games, and have fun.”


Mckenna held up some stockings. “Yes we do stockings here, but we do them differently. For every game you win, you have to get something and give it to someone.”

“And we will go ice skating, come back and get into our pjs, and watch a Christmas movie while we go to sleep. Sound like fun?” Every girl in the room cheered.
