Who remembers me saying in my last post that I hoped to get this one out early… 😉
I guess editing 21 pictures took longer than I expected, but I hope that you will enjoy this fun photoshoot that I took while on a trip a couple weeks ago! I had fun taking this shoot of Caroline enjoying some of her favorite things: being outdoors in nature and reading!
So here it is!
I have another, smaller photoshoot that I took last minute before leaving from our trip, so you will probably be seeing that one sometime soon as well!
Which picture was your favorite? Have you taken any trips this summer? If not, what is your dream summer trip?
[Caroline]: Thank you, Grace. One question: I only have room for one more shirt. So should I wear the tee-shirt or the sweater for our vacation?
[Grace]: Oh definitely tee-shirt! Julie gave you that.
[Grace]: On the other hand it is cold in Alaska…
[Caroline]: Yeah, that’s what I was thinking.
[Grace]: But Julie might be upset you didn’t bring the tee-shirt.
[Caroline]: Yikes… It’s possible.
[Grace]: But the sweater is so much cuter!
[Caroline]: True… I think I’ll go with that…
[Grace]: Now, that I think about it, didn’t it have fleas?
[Caroline]: Nevermind… I think I have as many clothes as I need.
[Grace]: Glad to be of service!
That’s about all for this post! Congratulations Jewel!
Anyone have plans for the rest of summer? This weekend I’ll be going to summer camp with my youth group, and then I will be going to a cabin with family. Hopefully I can take a doll along and have a post next Thursday with pictures around the cabin! Which doll do you want me to take along?
It’s crazy that Christmas has already passed! I hope you all had a wonderful day!
Today I’m here to show you some things I received for Christmas! That being said, I want to add that although gift-giving and receiving is fun, I hope we will all note and remember that the true reason for Christmas is God’s free gift to us: His Son, Jesus, to save us from our ultimate debt!
Since this is a doll blog, I’m just here with three things that are for my dolls or relate to my blog!
I hope you will enjoy! And a big thank you to my brothers who gave me the gifts in this post!
First off, I received two Our Generation (Target brand) outfits for my dolls!
It’s called “Tennis Togs.” It comes with a white dress, grey cardigan with embroidered tennis rackets, orange plastic sneakers, a fuzzy tennis ball, and a tennis racket. Looks like Julie has a new hobby! (Note: Julie can hold the ball and racket with the help of hair elastics.)
I especially like the dress in this set. It seems like it’s really versatile! Here I layered a vest.
Or you could add tights.
“So Deer to Me.” It includes a button up top (fastened with velcro), pink pants, a royal blue belt, brown plastic sneakers, orange glasses, and dark pink socks.
Clara popped in to give a quick look at the socks and glasses. I think my favorite part of this outfit is the pants, though it’s cute overall! 🙂
The socks actually do fit under the sneakers. Another thing to note is that the belt is sewn to the pants, causing the buckle to be un-centered when tightened. I’ll probably use my seam-ripper to un-attach the belt. 🙂
And that’s all for the doll items!
However there is one more thing that applies to this blog! My brother kindly gave me Photoshop (Elements 2018). I look forward to playing around with it, and using it to edit photos for my posts! I used it a little for this post, but I have a photoshoot of Caroline that I’m excited to show you soon, in which I’ve been working on editing the pictures with Photoshop!
Well, that about wraps up this post! Thank you again to my brothers! 🙂
What are some things you got for Christmas? What are some things you gave for Christmas?
Note: You don’t need to measure the milk exactly, and the chocolate can be approximate, too.
First, pour the milk into your mug.
Then stick it in the microwave and heat it up for one minute.
Put your two tablespoons of chocolate chips into your mug. Be careful, sometimes the milk splatters when you drop them in.
Now stir it all up until your chocolate chips are melted into the milk!
And you have your hot chocolate! Yum! A few notes: 1) There may be some little chocolate bits still floating around that don’t dissolve; 2) I like to microwave the hot chocolate another 30 seconds to try and get the chocolate to melt further; 3) You may add in some sugar if you want it sweeter.
Also feel free to add toppings! I chose whipped cream and crushed candy cane!
And that’s it! I hope you enjoy!!
Here is Gracie’s hot chocolate–the human-sized version of this recipe! 🙂
Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoy the recipe, and be sure to come back later for Julie’s post–the last post of the series!!
What is one of your favorite Christmas recipes? Are you going to try this hot chocolate?
