A snow photoshoot

Hey gals!
Last week, (or maybe it was two weeks?) it snowed a lovely amount. I was excited to take some pictures of the dolls in it, though I think it would have been better for them if it wasn't so deep. XD 

 I took Kit out, because I hadn't undressed her from skating, and Camille, since I thought she should get a chance to play in the snow. :) (Her outfit totally ruins the calm magical look but WHATEVER) 

 Yeah, she doesn't have any gloves. Shame on me. XD

 So pretty. 💋❄

 Don't be fooled: I barely stood them, they aren't close to touching the ground. 

 The sun decided to come out and glare/shadow everything weirdly just as I set them up for this shot. yay. 

 I really should have moved Kit so her face wouldn't be so shadowed.😬

 I'm thinking of making one of these, or one of her skating close-ups her profile pic. 


And by now my fingers were ice, (I wasn't wearing gloves) so I took them in and grabbed some gloves. But here are some more pics that I took!😃

 sooooo deep.

 sooooo sparkly.  

oooooh look at the sun rays in the corner!

And I took these the day before, it was snowing when I woke up, and it snowed heavily ALL day, it was awesome. I took these photos around lunchtime, when it was clearly sticking. But none of the snowflakes actually show up in any of my pictures, sadly.  

 Snow dusted pines ❄💙❄

Have an amazing day!
(hey look, my sign off matches. XD )
What was your favorite photo? Have you gotten any snow? 
Have you ever sacrificed warm fingers for photos? I love snow, but I am so 
ready for warmth and green again. What about you?

Ruthie's mini skating shoot

This year, Ruthie wanted to go ice skating for her birthday. And since it coincided with Ivy's birthday skating, (surprise, surprise) I decided to oblige her. Kit came as well, and they also got to try on some 'lipstick' for a treat. (It's dry erase marker. 😉)

It was pretty empty, since it was a school day.

 Cute little birthday girl.💝

 So pretty. 💋



It wasn't too hard to get these pics, just carefully stand one up on the ice, fix anything the other doll needs fixing, pose her, pick up the first doll, fix and pose her, and then take your photos without getting on your knees, which was the most challenging bit. 😂 

I'll have a christmas haul post coming soon, followed by some more lego pics


Do you like ice skating? Are you any good? I can barely move 
without losing my balance, lol. When was the last time 
you took pictures in a new place?

Christmas morning 2017

(I would like to apologize for the fuzzy quality of some of my photos. I slightly missed the time where the most light is coming through the window.)

Puppy paws cross the floor, as a girl and her dog slip through the door-
now hush, not a peep! The other girls are still asleep!
 But she smiles as she tiptoes to her cousin's room,
it says they'll certainly be awake soon.

 "Wake up! wake up! Wake up I say,

 Come on! Come on! It's Christmas day."

Lea receives a big fat cat, 
dropped (very quickly!) upon her back.  

 "AAAHHHHH, cold!"
Ruthie earns a much harsher treatment. (which of course involves losing her blanket.)

 Return that glare with a cheeky smile,
 no more being good! At least, for a while.

But oh, hooray! it's Christmas day! 
Now can't we go see what's under the tree? 

 The pile of presents, beautifully wrapped

And the stockings are stuffed, filled every crack. 

 A teddy bear, with a scarf red and white, 
 sits, and smiles, at all in sight.

 The rush for the stockings, the shouts of glee,
 while Lea just sits there, under the tree.

It's addressed to her, all she does is stare, 
while the cat beside her does not want the share.

Now let us listen, the girls are all talking,
 about the gifts they've received in their stockings. 

 "Come on out, tasty treats! yum yum yum!"

 "Hey, this hair bow is cute. And oooh, a new water bottle!"

 *happy smiles*

 "I LOVE chocolate!"

 "Look, I got a beaded flower from Josie and her mom!"

And then came the presents, (so blessed!) 
the first of which was this pretty green dress. 

 Camille followed next with a bag and a bow,
pried from tissue paper white as snow.

A summery outfit, all bright and pink,
 "I have to wait until spring? That really does stink."

 "Oooh, boot-cuts! With real pockets, nice!"

 "A camera and travel journal! You guys are the best!"

 "*gasps* Now I can look like Nanea!"

 "I got a lady bug from Josie!"

 "A volley ball! wow, now I can play again! I used to all the time in Brazil."

"Look! Josie and her mom made me a dress!" 

 "Cool pattern!"

 "Josie made me a dress to! Awesome!"

 "A mermaid floor puzzle! with Ariel!" 

 "A stripey outfit with a striped bag..."

 "...and a glittery outfit, with a glittery bag!"

 "And here's my present from Josie, a drawstring dress! It's so pretty!"

"Wow, those are really long socks Kit."
"They are! I like the shoes, they're just my style."

"Oooooh, a Christmas dress! I love it! I'm sure not waiting until next Christmas to wear this!"  

So to all those far, and all those near,
we hope you had a merry Christmas, and a happy new year!


Sorry this was up so late, I was feeling really lazy/deserving of a 'break' and I only managed to get the pictures done before Hazel and her family came over for new year's eve. It was so much fun! 
No, nooooooo, don't get me started. I will talk about it on my Christmas haul post, which should be up 'soon'. I love you girls! thanks for putting up with me, and I hope you had  a great Christmas. 🙂

How was your Christmas? Did you do anything extra special? 
What about new year's eve, did you stay up until midnight? 
Did anyone come over? Did you visit anyone?
