Questions and Fun Facts – Get to Know the Dolls + BIBPC

Today I have kind of a different type of post!

How would you like to get to know the Thomas family better?

Get to Know the Dolls featureimage

Here’s how this works…

-I will ask questions, and each of my dolls will give an answer. I will name fun facts about the dolls, too! 

-During the post, I will include a few pictures of the dolls that I have taken in the past, and never displayed on this blog before. I’ll include a little description about the story behind the picture, too! 

-Then, at the end of the post, you get to participate and ask the dolls some questions yourself, or have your own dolls answer!

 

I thought that it would be fun to do a kind of Q&A for my dolls, and thus show you some more about their personalities and character!

Let’s begin!

 

Questions

 

Do you prefer wearing Skirts or Pants?

Clara: Skirts!!!

Grace: I guess it depends the occasion…. But if I have to pick one, then… pants?

Caroline: I like skirts, but I am partial to longer ones. Otherwise I’d rather pants.

Julie: I prefer pants. Dresses are nice, but pants are more practical.

 

Coffee or Tea?

Clara: Neither, please! I’d much rather have chocolate milk or juice!

Grace: Coffee… if Julie would let me… 😉

Caroline: Tea is my favorite!

Julie: Coffee.

Are you more Tomboyish or Girly?

Clara: I think I’m kind of neither. I love being active, and I’m not very into fashion and things, but I do love pink… not to mention skirts!

Grace: Probably leaning towards girly.

Caroline: I’m with Grace on this one.

Julie: Tomboy, but even more so when I was a bit younger. I’m not as much anymore.

This is a picture I got when I first took Grace home from the AG store! And, um, don’t mind the foot in the background… XD 

 

Which, of your sisters, would you say is your Best Friend in the family?

Clara: Grace! I enjoy playing with her, and we hang out a lot. She’s also the closest to me in age!

Grace: Clara and I spend a lot of time together, not to mention that we share a room, so we’re pretty close. However, I do really love it when I get to spend time with Julie and Caroline.

Caroline: I’m closest to Julie in the family. I feel like I can just talk to her about things on my mind, and I greatly appreciate the heartfelt conversations that we have, often discussing biblical things.

Julie: I would consider Caroline my best friend in the family, but I also really enjoy spending time with Grace. Grace and I enjoy shopping together sometimes, or cooking and baking in the kitchen together.

 

Are you more Introverted or Extroverted?

Clara: People would guess I’m an extrovert, which is probably correct. I can be a little shy at first, but I warm up quickly, and then I’m outgoing!

Grace: I’m more extroverted. I like meeting someone new, and enjoy being around people a lot.

Caroline: Introverted. I enjoy having alone time and family time.

Julie: I’m an introvert, but I’m willing to step out and introduce myself to someone new, especially in a place that I’m familiar with, so you might not be able to tell that I’m introverted.

 

Indoors or Outdoors?

Clara: Outdoors!

Grace: Both, but I’m leaning towards outdoors.

Caroline: I prefer the outdoors. Not so much for sports and things, but for enjoying God’s beautiful nature. I enjoy gardening, as well as reading outside.

Julie: I prefer indoors.

I got this picture after I had built my AG-sized bars and beam! (I built the bars with these instructions!) These have been featured in Clara’s past gymnastics posts

 

Favorite and Least Favorite subjects?

Clara: My favorite subject is art! My least favorite is math; it is definitely not my strong point!

Grace: I like reading and writing pretty well. Music is good, too. My least favorite subject is Grammar! Thankfully, Clara and I help each other out with our worst subjects.

Caroline: My favorite subject is history. I’m not sure I really have a least favorite, but I guess I don’t care for science too much.

Julie: My favorite subject is Math! My least favorite is probably writing, though.

 

Name one thing you Appreciate or Admire about one of your sisters.

Each doll will take one of their sisters. 🙂

Clara: I like that Grace takes the time to play with me. She is really friendly and outgoing. We do get in fights and arguments sometimes, but we’re also close and have fun together. I also really appreciate that we can help each other with our homework. 🙂

Grace: I admire Caroline’s quiet and caring personality. She is very thoughtful and discerning. You might not expect it, but she can really step out and be courageous when she needs to be.

Caroline: I really like how Julie takes on responsibility in our home. She isn’t perfect, and isn’t always right, but she tries to do what’s best. She is like the mother-figure in our family, and I can see that the younger girls respect her.

Julie: I love all the fun that Clara brings into our family. She’s a very active girl who just loves to have fun. She keeps us laughing. Even though sometimes she can get out of hand… 😉

This picture isn’t very good, quality wise 🙂 , but I think it’s pretty sweet :-). The dolls are having a movie night, popcorn and all! It looks like they’re watching off of Grace’s iPad. Oh and look! There’s my knee! XD 

 

 

Fun Facts

 

  • None of the dolls have a nickname! 😮

 

  • When I bought Clara (online) I had expected her to look pretty different. I think that this is because, at the time, I didn’t know that there were various face molds, so I probably expected her to have the Josefina mold, like Julie! It took me a while to get used to!

 

  • I received Julie as my first doll. Next I got Clara, then Grace, and finally, Caroline is my newest.

Now it’s time for your part of this post!

Comment down below with questions to get to know my dolls, whether about their hobbies, personality, favorites or just about anything! You can ask a specific doll a question, or all of them! And then they can reply and answer your questions in the comments!

Please limit to about 3 questions 🙂 .

Also feel free to share fun facts about your doll(s), or have your dolls answer some of the questions that my dolls did! (Or you can answer them yourself, if you like!)

 

Do you have any fun facts about your dolls? Which fun fact or story behind a picture did you enjoy most? Do you have any questions for my dolls?

Here is my BIBPC (Boring into Beautiful Photography Contest, hosted by Megan!) entry!

I am on team Kiwi, and the category is Celebration!

DSCN0194edit.jpg

Story: I was looking through birthday photos and other celebration photos, and eventually pulled up this one that I got last Christmas. I really like how it turned out, and since Christmas is a celebration of Christ, and the decorations represent that, it fits the category!

 

Meet the Mini Dolls!

Hello!

I hope you all had a good Mother’s Day, last Sunday! Remember to honor your mother (and father!) for all that they do for you!

 

Clara is going to take over now. 🙂


 

DSCN1957

Hi Everyone! Guess what I get to show you today?

DSCN1960

The mini dolls!!! It’s about time you met them, I think. 🙂

DSCN1955

Gracie’s planning to add a link to this post on the “Meet the Dolls” page, and she added a little bit to our profiles, too, so be sure to check it out!

Now, let’s get in to actually meeting the minis!

DSCN2006

Let’s start with Julie’s, the oldest’s, doll and then proceed from the minis owned by the oldest to the youngest.

This is Cecile! She and Marie-Grace, who are pre-Beforever historicals, were our first minis!

DSCN2018

Cecile is eight years old, the oldest of the minis, and likes to cook. She’s fun, sometimes stubborn, and likes to goof off with her sisters, though she is also good at standing up when things are getting too out of hand.

Any words for the readers, Cecile?

Hello! *waves*

Ok… That’s all?

Um, thanks for reading!!

DSCN1962

Next up we have Molly, a first edition, glass-eyed mini, and one of Caroline’s dolls!

Um, Molly?

I’m adjusting my glasses… 

Ok… They look fine to me…

Ok… but if you had glasses you would understand how they get uncomf–

DSCN1963

Hey! I have glasses!

Well… you aren’t wearing them…

I’m NOT?

DSCN1964

OOF! Hey…!

Where in the world could they be??

DSCN1965

AHA! Here they are!!

Ok…

DSCN1967

Alright! Much better! Now, where were we?

You were introducing me and then you dropped me…

Oh, right. Sorry Molly!

DSCN1971

Molly is six years old. She is a bit shy and reserved, and likes reading. She can be a little mischievous sometimes, and she doesn’t like being the center of attention.

Any extra words, Molly?

I don’t think so… 

Ok. Thanks for joining us, Molly.

You’re welcome.*shy smile*

DSCN1974

This here is Samantha, also glass-eyed, and also Caroline’s!

DSCN1983

Mini Sam is six years old, and the youngest of the minis. She likes to joke around, play, and try to get Molly to go on mischievous adventures with her and Kit.

Any words, Sammy?

I saw cake in the fridge, may I have some? 

Um, sure, but do you have any words for our readers?

Oh! Um… I love cake! And playing outside with Kit!

DSCN2023

Speaking of Kit, Kit is up next! She is–

DSCN2021

Kit!!

What?

Why is your hair a wreck? And you don’t have your shoes on? You know you’re in a post!

Sorry, I was climbing trees outside.

Alright, well, go get yourself cleaned up, ok? Then come on back.

*Scampers off*

Just a minute please. Sorry for the delay.

DSCN2025

*Scampers back* Better? 

Much! So anyways, this is Kit! She is one of the Beforever minis, and is Grace’s doll.

DSCN2026

Kit is seven years old. She and Samantha get along really well, as they both like playing outside and being silly. Samantha looks up to Kit, and thinks she’s hilarious and fun. Kit’s mischief sometimes gets out of hand, but she tries to be a good example and big sister to Sam.

Do you have anything to say to the readers?

Out of hand? I don’t get out of hand! Oh… well, I guess, there was that one time… 

And some other times…

Ok, maybe I do get a little out of hand sometimes… 

DSCN1989

This here is Marie-Grace! She is one of my dolls!

DSCN1990

Marie-Grace is eight years old. She has the sweetest personality of the mini dolls. Marie-Grace is a pretty quiet girl, and very thoughtful. She likes being around her family or in her room reading. Cecile is her best friend.

Anything to say, Marie-Grace?

It was nice meeting you all!

DSCN1997

Before we go, just check out her HAIR! It’s so long and shiny and soft! XD I love it.

DSCN1985

Last but not least, we have Rebecca, another pre-Beforever mini! Um… Rebecca?

Be out in a minute! I’m fixing my hair!

Oh, um, ok… Just try to hurry! We have people waiting!

DSCN2033

Here I am! I need to look my best for the readers, don’t you think?

Ok. So here is Rebecca, she is my second doll, and the last of our minis.

DSCN2046

Rebecca is our fashionista; though, you may have already figured that out. She is seven years old. Rebecca likes to spend her time styling her and her sisters’ hair and begging us to let her try out a little makeup. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but can be kind, as well.

Anything to say, Rebecca?

So… can I wear makeup? 

*chuckles* No, Rebecca. You don’t need any at your age, anyways. I don’t wear it, either. Anything else?

Goodbye, readers!

DSCN1974crop.jpg

Well, I guess that concludes our meet and greet! I hope you enjoyed meeting all the minis! And be sure to go check out the “Meet the Dolls” page to check out the update!!

Bye!


 

Before I go,

What did you think of the pictures in this post?

I took them in my closet where my dollhouse/bookshelf is, so it was kind of like an experiment, and lighting was a challenge. Some of them are better than others, because I figured out new methods as I went. I edited these, too 🙂 . Feedback is appreciated!

Also, I plan to post the winner of Caption It! #3 very soon! So go ahead and vote, here, if you haven’t yet!

 

Bye!
