Merry Christmas {An AG Photo-story}

It was the night before Christmas,
and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, not even.... wait. It was the night before Christmas, but there was some noise. The dolls were playing a couple of games before they went to bed. They decided to have a pajama party.
For the last game Anastasia made up a game. "So, you have to make the person guess the Christmas song. But, you can't hum it, say the words in the title, or a popular line from the song. Got it? If you get someone to guess it in less then 15 seconds, it's their turn and you get a special treat. So, are you ready for me to start? So these things are on a sleigh and they make noise, and..."
Saige jumped up. "Jingle Bells!
"Yes!" cried Anastasia. "You are right!"
Anastasia got a plate of cookies and milk while Saige went.
It was Saige's turn. "This song is about the mother who gave birth to Jesus and they were asking her questions."
Katrina figured it out. "Mary Did You Know?!"
"High five Katrina! You did good even though how I said it was a bit confusing."
Saige started to read her book.
"Okay, so what's the opposite of day, and it is quiet,"
"Silent Night!" yelled Samantha.
Katrina got a lollipop.
It was finally Samantha's turn. "Mine's going to be a little bit harder. So you decorate these long things which aren't rooms but connect rooms."
"Deck the Halls?" asked Anastasia.
Anastasia guessed correctly so Samantha got a pretty bracelet.
It was getting late so the sisters settled down to sleep.

"While visions of sugar plums fairies danced in their heads"
It was the next morning and Samantha was the first one up. She got up and stretched while she was yawning.
She slipped on her robe,
and waited for her sisters to get up.
Katrina was the second one.
She stood up. "Good morning Samantha. Merry Christmas."
"Merry Christmas Katrina. Nice hair!"
A couple minutes later, Anastasia was up and she was trying to wake Saige up.
"Guys!" Katrina was jumping up and down with excitement. "Bella says that our present is outside!"
Hearing present and outside, Saige hopped up. "Let's go guys!" Even though she never told anyone, for years she wanted her own horse. Her sisters knew that she loved horses, but they didn't know how she really, really, wanted one.
When they got outside the dolls complained sightly, because it wasn't cold. Last week they had snow, and now today it was 60 degrees Fahrenheit. 
When they got outside the saw a blond head. Could it be....
"Kit!" all the dolls (well most of them) were so excited to see Kit.
"What are you doing here?" asked Katrina.
Kit borrowed Saige's hat. "I'm filling in for Santa. I'm delivering this sleigh and horse!"
At the mention of horse Saige was so happy! But, she was slightly mad at Kit wearing her red dress.
Kit noticed Anastasia standing off to the side by herself. They were talking and Anastasia was a bit miffed that her sisters didn't tell her that they had an older sister who went to college. 
While they were talking, Saige went over to the horse and named it Chestnut.
The dolls were so glad to have Kit home for the holidays.
Well, Saige wasn't that excited. She was happier over finally having a horse. 
I think Saige, out of all the dolls ,liked this present the best. I got the sleigh and horse from my grandpa for Christmas, and I thought that the dolls would enjoy it.

What did you do for Christmas?

What's one thing that you got for Christmas that you absolutely love?

P.S Thank you to American Girl Doll Crafter for Anastasia's pajamas and Christmas Eve set.

What I Got in the Two Packages

In the Christmas post *here*  the dolls found two packages addressed to me.
One big one, and one small one both from my grandpa. Only one person guessed what was in the packages. Light4theLord guessed and she was.........
wrong. Sorry.
Are you ready to see what I got?

So in the small box, I got
A ladybug purse
A ladybug Bible
And a ladybug wallet.

I love ladybugs! My grandpa remembered that I loved them. ^_^
Now, the big box was
Kaya bookends and Kaya and Kit figurines!
The bookends are so cool! The two Kaya's on them look a little different which is cool. :)
And, I got Kaya and Kit little figurines.
Kaya is so cute!
Kit is very cute, but at one point in her life she had a tumble and broke her head off.
So that's what I got!

Did you know that all the dolls at one point had bookends? There was Kaya, Kit, Kirsten, Molly, Samantha, Felicity, and even Josefina bookends!

Out of the dolls above, which one is your favorite?

See you guys later!

Decorating the Christmas Tree {An AG Photo-story}

                                                    Saige stared gloomily out the window.
It was so cold, dark, dreary, gloomy, and foggy.
                                                      Katrina was the first one to find her.
                                                              "What's wrong Saige?"
"I was hoping that it would snow so I could go ice skating. It's so cold but no snow!"
                                                      She sat down on the floor depressed.
Just then Samantha came. "What's wrong?"
 Katrina told her.
 "I have an idea. But first, did you see these two packages?" asked Samantha.
Samantha led them over to a huge box.

Katrina wanted to go on top so Saige lifted her up.
"Hello down there!"
"It's addressed to Bella!" she said from the top of the box.
"This one too! But, I have a feeling that Bella wouldn't be too happy if we opened them. Let's make her show us sometime this week, and show our blog readers too!" (Wouldn't you like that? At the end of the post comment below what you think is in the packages.)
Just then Anastasia came up behind Saige and yelled, "Boo!"
                             Saige jumped up and turned around to see who scared her.
But Katrina was quicker. From her spot on top of the box she scared Anastasia. She threw her arms in the air which was quite a feat seeing that she couldn't move very well in the dress.

Samantha promptly stopped the scaring, and told Anastasia to change into her holiday outfit and that she had an idea.

The idea was to decorate the tree.

Since Anastasia was the newest family member, she got to hang up the Christmas lights.
Samantha divided up the ornaments,

While Saige and Katrina did nothing.

(Look how cute this ornament is!!)

Then, I (Bella) came after they were done decorating the tree, and forced them to take a group photo.
The dolls did this on Friday, and on Saturday it snowed! Anastasia got a photo-shoot in the snow, and Saige played in the snow.

It's only 1 week until Christmas! I hope by now your Christmas tree is up!

Do you have any guesses on what's in the two packages? Comment below!
