Kitchen/Dining Room Area

This is my doll's kitchen and dining room area. Kit has recently found an interest in cooking. It is under my desk in the area which used to be Ruthie's room.

"I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" Commentary

I know it isn't Christmas time anymore but Emily and I were listening to this song during lunch. I decided to put my commentary on this crazy song on my blog. If it is in bold it is the song; if it isn't in bold it is my commentary.

"I want a hippopotamus for Christmas (first of all, this kid is crazy for wanting a hippo)
Only a hippopotamus will do (and quite stubborn)
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy (who doesn't want an AG doll for Christmas?)
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy (play with and enjoy? A hippo?

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
(Well if I was Santa Claus I would)
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue (oh good!)
Just bring him through the front door, that's the easy thing to do (well I wouldn't say easy)

I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs (definitely creeping)
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes (more like shock and terror)
To see a hippo hero standing there (more like a charging hippo)

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas (yes, we know)
Only a hippopotamus will do (just as stubborn)
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses (at least you could fit a crocodile through the door)
I only like hippopotamuses (favoritism...)
And hippopotamuses like me too (WHERE DID YOU GET THAT IDEA!)

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian
(That doesn't mean that they can't run you over)

There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage (where are your cars going to go?)
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage (a massage? Really?)
I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroses

I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too"

Interesting Day

Today has been an interesting day with my dolls. First of all, Ruthie is mad at me again. I think it is because I read her my literature and world studies (also known as history and social studies). I DID let her read about cnidarians with me in science so she should be thankful for that. Currently Kit is trying to act out the story I read to them in literature. It is about Albrecht Durer who painted the Praying Hands. As for Chrissa, she is doing some research on India because of what I read to them in world studies. So today has been an unusual day.

I croceted these ponchos recently.


Does anybody have any ideas for my journal entry? I end up having to write them, but I have no idea what to write. I would love to write a poem but it has to be a composition. I NEED IDEAS!

Ice Skating, Snow, and Band

We went ice skating yesterday. We have homeschool skate every month so we decided to go. I finally got the hang of it and could go fairly fast. In other words, I didn't have to hold on to the wall. I fell three times. Two of the times I landed on my stomach. Today I am very sore. I actually have a bruise on my knee that looks like a cowrie shell (it is grew with purplish red dots on it). Today we are getting a lot of snow. Well, only five inches. Because of that we don't have band. I am sad about that. Our homeschool band is going to play with a local college in a few months. The song that we will play with them will be much harder than what I am used to. The songs that I hope we play by ourselves are the following:

Onward Christian Soldiers

The Crossings

And a song that I can't remember the name of.

What My Dolls do When I'm Not Around (fiction)

This is a journal entry that I did yesterday. I would like to say that this is completely fiction.

My dolls, Kit, Ruthie, and Chrissa, are perfectly still when I am around, but what do they do when I'm not in the room? I once hid a video camera to find out and the results were amazing.

Each of my dolls has their own personality. For instance, Chrissa loves to read, Kit likes to sing and act, while Ruthie loves to cause trouble. All of this was captured in the fifteen minute video I found. Chrissa, being the angelic bookworm she is, took Little Women off my bookshelf and began to read. Kit, being the mild performer she is, took Bridge to Terebithia off my shelf and acted it out by herself. Ruthie, being the curious troublemaker she is, took all of my yarn and began to play with it. Kit and Chrissa stopped their reading and acting to tell her to stop, but she wouldn't. After about five minutes of playing with my yarn, Ruthie decided to get onto my computer to see what I had been writing on my blog. She then played on my computer eight minutes more. Then, Kit hear that I was coming upstairs. She and Chrissa moved like lightening to get every thing back in order. they hurried to their rooms where I had left them. Ruthie continued to play on the computer until I had entered the room. She barely had enough time to get back in place as well as close down my computer.

This goes to show that if you have a troublesome doll like Ruthie, take her with you when you leave the room.

College Football Championship

Tonight is the College Football Championship. This year Auburn (for those of you who don't know, Auburn is a school in Alabama) is playing Oregon. My family is for Auburn. My dad went to Auburn and we used to live in Alabama. I can't remember the last time Auburn went undefeated. I don't think I was born yet. What team do you want to win?

So everyone is finally back in school. I like school in some ways but dislike it in others. Currently Ruthie is mad at me because I read her my literature. I don't understand what was wrong with the story. It wasn't particularly interesting but it wasn't terrible. For those who have read my Awesome Dolls Magazine, how do you like it?

AG has raised the prices of their dolls again. When I got my doll Kit they were only $80; when I got Ruthie and Chrissa they were $95. Now they are $100! This is way too much for a doll. I know that they are specially made and very durable, but isn't this getting a little out of hand? By the time I have kids they will be $300! That is if they haven't gone bankrupt from no one buying them. If they want people to buy them than don't raise the prices. They are really making a big profit considering that it would cost at the most $10 to make a doll. Don't you think that they should lower the prices?

Ruthie's Birthday

Ruthie's birthday was yesterday. Now all of my dolls are 12 except Chrissa who will turn 12 on April 14. For her birthday, everyone watched Eloise at the Plaza.

To Hannah H. if you are reading this: If you would like to help Emily and I celebrate Ruthie's birthday just come over after school some time.

Essential 100

My church is going to do a Bible study together called Essential 100. We will read the Bible 100 days in a row. It is going to give you a good over view of the Bible (along with reading the majority of it). We all have certain passages to read each day that average out to a chapter and a half. All you have to do is read the Bible and watch it change your life. If you are interested in joining me and my church, comment below and I will post the schedule.
