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.

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.

Your Turn!

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!

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!

I’ll start with Rebekah’s questions!

1) Are you an indoor person or an outdoor person?

Probably The Thomas Family Pets Part 4… I just felt like the storyline got really boring, but I like the first three parts pretty well 🙂 (It was my first photoseries!).

3) What is your biggest pet peeve?

I’m not sure… But hearing people eat isn’t very fun. XD

4) If you could change your name, what would you change it to? 

I don’t know, I like my name. 🙂 How about Grace? XD LOL

5) Rollerskating or ice skating? 

Ice skating, but I guess rollerskating is more practical.

I’d say my Mom!

7) What’s your favorite subject?

Perhaps history. Writing and reading are good, too!

8) Brownies or cookies?

Cookies. (Though brownies are Amazing!)

Raw tomatoes? I guess oysters are weird to eat….

10) Would you consider yourself more introverted or extroverted?

Introverted.

Pencils. Even though they can be lighter and more smudgy.

 

 

And here are Diamond’s!

1) Have you ever taken your doll on vacation with you? 

Yes! I took Julie to Colorado!

2) What piece of doll clothing do you wish came in your size? 

I don’t think I had ever really thought of that before. But the Our Generation outfits A Real Cool Cat and For the Frill of It are really cute.

3) Do your friends and family know about your AG blog?

Yes. Well, not everyone, but my immediate family does, and several friends/family.

4) First thing you’d do if you won the lottery?

Probably freak out… Ok, ok, um, probably do some serious planning. (Yeah I guess that wasn’t much better…)

5) If you had to give away one of your dolls, who would it be?(I know, so hard!)

I didn’t see this one coming! Oh dear… but… but… well, I can’t do Julie, because she’s my first… and Grace is so pretty… and Clara has such a fun personality… but Caroline, though! AAAH! I guess Caroline, but thankfully I don’t have to 🙂 .

6) How long do you think you’ll be posting on your blog?

I don’t know, probably a while! 🙂

7) Favorite AG tuber?

I don’t really follow AG tubers much. Does MyFroggyStuff count?

8) Which one of your dolls personalities are most like yours? 

Good question! Maybe Grace, except she might be more outgoing.

9) What color is the room you are in?

The walls are a grey color!

10) Favorite pet you’ve ever had?

Our current cat, Clifford. At least, as far as I can remember he’s my favorite.
