Greetings, Earthlings! I got a new doll for Christmas as you would have guessed from my last post. Well, I got………………..
I renamed her to McKee Lea Thomas, Mac for short. Her BFF (Isabelle) sometimes calls her Lea.
Her backstory is that her mom is a famous fashion designer and her dad a famous singer. So, she likes to say that she's famous but she's not really. Her mom and dad divorced but they're still friends for McKee. Her mom moved to Paris so since McKee was 5 she spent 6 months in Paris and 6 months in the US. Her mom's house burnt down and McKee's mother couldn't get out of the house, so her father put her up for adoption when she was 10. She lived in the doll orphanage until she was 13, when she came to live with us. Because of this, she can be snobby and doesn't want to show weakness whatsoever. She loves fashion and is very hip. Besides this, she is an incredibly loyal friend and we try to welcome her as much as possible to make her feel better.
The girls gathered around the Christmas tree early this morning. They chatted excitedly.
"Alright!" Kit announced excitedly. "I'm playing Santa this year! The first present here is for……
"Arwen!" Kit handed Arwen a big bag with a squirmy pug puppy in it. Arwen squealed. "Thank you, Secret Santa!!!"
Arwen played with her newfound friend. "Um…" she began, after she sat down. "Was my Secret Santa…Ocean?"
"Correct!" Ocean said.
"Next is…Isabelle!" Kit handed her a brush.
"Ohmygosh!" Isabelle exclaimed. "It's a GoKnot!" Looking around at people's confused faces, Isabelle added, "It's this brush that has this…uh, it's a REALLY nice brush. I think it was…Arwen?"
"Nope, it was me!" Julie smiled. "I have one and it's AMAZING."
"Next is…Ocean!" Kit called out, handing Ocean an Elsa POP! to which Ocean seemed very surprised. "How-how did they know? Oh! Rebecca! I borrowed her phone to look at POP!s online…she must have seen!"
Kit handed a hastily wrapped round item. 'Here you are Lilly!"
Julie smiled. She opened it up to find an adorable pug toy (that may or may not come to life in the future) that waddled when you turned it on!
"AWW!" Juliana-Lilly gushed. "He's soooo cute! Um, I'm guessing you're my Secret Santa, Kit."
Rebecca laughed. "Nope, me!"
Next, it was Kit's turn! She found adorable bunny slippers! (Aren't they cute? I got them in my stocking!)
Next, it was Rebecca's turn. She opened up her present and gasped.
It was a Josefina mini doll. "Th-thank you so much, Kit!"
"How'd you know?"
"You're the only one left, silly! Thank you SO SO SOOOO much!"
"Well, mom pitched in some, and you're so nice I know you're gonna share, and why not!"
Rebecca gave Josie a big hug. "I love her!"
"That's a wrap! Merry Christmas ya'll!"
"Wait!" said Isabelle. "There's one more present….to McKee? Much love, Keira (Mom)?"
Who is this McKee? Is she a new sister (yes, it's obvious)? What doll is she? BUM BA BUM!
Hi! So, today the lighting was really amazing outside so I took a photoshoot with Ocean! I called it Winter Buds because it's winter-y but I feel like it's kinda spring-y, too. Also, winter break just started! So happy holidays to everyone! And happy belated Hannakuh as well to my Jewish readers. Let's get started!
Here is a bonus pic of my dolls cutely and patiently waiting to get their hair and clothes done for a photo story.
*casually walks in* Heyyy guys yeah I wasn't gone for two weeks at all! Heh heh heh.
Sorry about the absence though, seriously! Grrr….I'm getting into a habit…I can't believe how cray-cray the holidays can be! Also, the Canon broke. So, my photos won't be half as good but I'll make do until it's fixed.
Winter break is coming up soon, though, so that basically means check back everyday next week. No guarantees, though! You know me…….Anywhoosie, on with the story!
It was an average day in the Jellybean household. Too average.
Kit was having a mini dance party with Arwen…
Isabelle was looking for her phone…
Rebecca was making a To-Do List...
Ocean was daydreaming about animals...
And Juliana-Lilly was thinking about the tiny amount of Christmas spirit in the air. At her old place, she and Arwen had so many joyful, fun Christmas traditions. Juliana-Lilly missed those traditions a lot.
She invited Rebecca into the hall. They had a brief talk, and then Lilly stuck her head out. "How does a Secret Santa sound?"
"Awesome!" Kit yelled.
"For once, you're right, Kit! This'll be so fun!" Isabelle cheered.
Here they are!
I hoped you like it! This isn't my best writing(for sure) and the photos aren't very good, but I missed blogging so I used my Dad's *cringe* phone. Just so you know, I CANNOT make phone photography work. Most of you can. Yeah, not for me.
Oh, by the way, as soon as I took these photos I went to Happy House of AG, Loren's blog (she's awesome!) for the first time in a while, She had a secret santa post, too, lol! So, just kinda a disclaimer. Though I am constantly inspired by her everyday, this is just a coincidence.
