Going camping…

Last night, a few of us girls decided to go on a camp out.

Grace set up the faux fire to set the mood, and with the flick of a switch, and a turn of the lights, Kate’s room was turned into a campsite.

Madison and Antonia immediately went to sleep, and Phoebe and Grace talked awhile. But within minutes, all of them were asleep. An hour later, Kate walked into the room, flicking on the lights, to find Grace, Phoebe, Antonia, and Madison fast asleep. She turned off the fire, put everything away, and put the girls to bed.

“Sleep tight, my little campers,” She whispered.

Jammin’ to Jenny Jenkins!

Antonia and Marigold decided to sneak out of the house today and play with Kate’s karaoke machine that she got for Christmas.

Bath Time!

Miss Pinrose decided that we girls needed a bath today, and asked Phoebe to fill the tub.

Miss Pinrose then left to round up the rest of the girls, and Phoebe began to fill the bathtub.

“I’ll come back and check it later,” Phoebe said, walking away.

Soon, Grace came by.

20130129-154627.jpg
“Miss Pinrose! We’re ready to bathe!” Grace cried.

20130129-154801.jpg
“We’re…” Grace began, but was cut off short when her wooden foot squished in a puddle of suds.
“What happened?” She mumbled.

Miss Pinrose walked over. “Grace!” She exclaimed. “What happened? Where’s Phoebe?”
Grace simply shrugged.
Meanwhile…

“Oh, snap! I forgot about the tub! Miss Pinrose is gonna be so mad! I’d better clean this up quickly!”

20130129-160216.jpg
“Phoebe? Phoebe? Where are you?”
“Uh-oh. Better hide!”
“Phoebe?”

20130129-160318.jpg
“Phoebe, I see you.”

20130129-160359.jpg
“Perhaps you could tell me what happened, hmm?”

20130129-160511.jpg
“I’m sorry! I forgot all about it! I’ll clean it up!”
Miss Pinrose raised an eyebrow. “Indeed you will. Please try not to be so foolish next time, Phoebe.”
“Yes, ma’am.”

20130129-160648.jpg
And although it took time, Phoebe did clean the mess, and soon she, Paige, and Grace found themselves splishing and splashing in the tub.

Until next time!

The Bucks County Dolls’ School…

…Has officially opened! To start the day, Miss Pinrose, our teacher and principal, explained some of the classes, and sent us off.

New Year’s resolutions

20130108-211729.jpg

“I think we’d better come up with a New Year’s Resolution. After all, it’s already January 8th of 2013.” Grace was determined to find a way for her family to do better this year.
“Any ideas?” She asked, tapping her foot. Phoebe went first.

20130108-211509.jpg
“I think we should all try to be more flexible, like me!” Phoebe exclaimed, twisting herself into an upside down straddle.
Grace sighed. “Amy, what do you think?”

20130108-212043.jpg

20130108-212108.jpg
“We should all go on a dance-a-thon, instructed by me!” Amy said excitedly.
Grace pushed a lock of hair behind her ear. These ideas are okay, Grace thought, but they’re centered around themselves. Grace sighed again aloud. I suppose I could see what everyone else has in mind, she thought.
“Ruthie?” She asked aloud. Ruthie immediately went to a nearby lap harp. “I think we should all take harp lessons!” She squealed in her shrill voice.

20130108-220440.jpg
Grace nodded. That seemed a bit better. “And what about you, Marigold?”

20130108-220607.jpg
Grace smiled. “Those are all great ideas,” she acknowledged. “But I personally think that some sewing lessons from Miss Pinny Pinrose and Beccasine would be beneficial as a resolution.”

20130108-220824.jpg
Suddenly, Phoebe shouted, “No! My idea is better!”
Grace glared at Phoebe sourly. “No, mine is!” She shot back.
Then, the others rung in with their opinions. Phoebe was about to throw fists when a powerful voice pierced the air. “QUIET!!!!

20130108-221250.jpg
All the girls turned to the voice to find Miss Pinrose. None of them could explain how or why she’d appeared to them so suddenly, but they turned their attention to her.
WHAT is going on?!” Miss Pinrose cried.
Amy, quite afraid, timidly crept up and explained that no one could agree on a New Year’s Resolution.

20130108-221619.jpg
Miss Pinrose smiled kindly. “Is that all?” She asked. “That’s no reason to throw punched, don’t you agree, Phoebe?”
Phoebe smiled weakly, quite ashamed. “Sorry, Ma’am,” she replied softly.
Miss Pinrose nodded, accepting the apology. “I have my own idea for a resolution,” Miss Pinrose continued. All ears turned to her. Miss Pinrose was pleased to receive the full attention of everyone, and continued. “What if, to benefit everyone, we started a school for all of the young ladies of our house. There’d be music and dance lessons, gymnastics, sewing, art, and perhaps some cooking and table manners lessons?”

20130108-222331.jpg
“That’d be great!” Cried Grace. “And our resolution would be to become proficient in every class!”
“Exactly!” Replied Miss Pinrose.
“Okay!” Chorused everyone in union.

Even more new friends!

We’re sorry to have left for some time, but with such a big family, we’ve practically no time for blogging! Just when we thought it could get no bigger, two more members join our family. Some time ago, a nearby orphanage closed down, leaving many orphans unadopted. We were privileged to bring two of those poor children home with us, while Hitty Ann and her friends adopted three. And we introduce, Amy and Marigold (or Goldie)!
