doll updates

Hi Everybody,
This is Sophia and Emma with some updates about upcoming changes around here:)

First though here is a picture of the 2 of us just relaxing, doing what we both love to do.  Emma's the one using the laptop but she's not gaming by the way.

The big news is that our doll family is growing by 2!!!!!  And we don't mean 2 AGs either?  Curious, well we'll tell you then.  Our mom came across this website via a youtube video and she couldn't resist preordering an Alex O'Shay doll.  She is ariticulated (by thick gauge elastic) and she has ears that she can tuck her hair behind.  Have a look at these links to learn more about her and her backstory.  Alex won't likely be arriving here until sometime in July.  She is still in production and there have been a few delays.
And finally here is an interview with Ellen, the creator of that doll:

The second doll who is joining our family is an AG doll, you will have to wait and see who it is.  But here is a hint, we think Amaya will be very happy when she finds out who it is.  The doll has already been shipped and will be waiting when Amaya returns from the hospital.  This is the reason why Amaya got a room makeover.

That's it for now.
Sophia and Emma :) :)

Blog Anniversary!!!!

Hi Everybody,
It's Sophia and Emma.
One year ago today we started this blog right before we went on a trip to Montreal:)

This is what we look like today.  Even though it's almost summer, spring has been cold and rainy here so we are dressed for warmth.

Yesterday was our mom's dad's birthday so we got lucky and get to eat cupcakes today :)

There has been some construction around here.  While Amaya is away her room got an extension so that it is now as big as ours is  This is what it looks like before.

This is what it looks like now.  She is getting another one of the Maplelea slumber loungers soon so that she can have a roommate sometime in the near future (really soon, stay tuned for more about that).

That's it for now.

Thank you to all of our loyal readers and we hope you stick around for a second year.

Sophia and Emma :) :)

Gone again:(

Hi Everybody,
This is Sophia and Emma.  We're sad to say that our friend Amaya had a relapse and had to return to the doll hospital.  Her new wig seems to have a manufacturing defect.

ouch ;(  as you can see there is a piece of hair that wasn't sewn down.

this is what it should be.

good bye amaya get well soon.

Our mom is very upset about this.  We had to call AG 3 times today to sort out what to do.  She did not want a replacement doll.

And it's recital season so she is very busy for the next 3 weeks so look for more regular postings after that  (we won't miss our blog anniversary though :) :))
That's it for now.
Sophia and Emma :) :)

Free Comic Book Day and May the 4th be with you:)

Hi Everybody,
This is McKenna again. 
Today is the first saturday in May which makes it free comic book day in North America.  This was started in 2002.

Here where we live there were several different comic book stores that were participating.  My guardian went to one of the stores and got some free comics including some for her brother who lives in a small town where even the nearest bigger town doesn't have a comic book store at all :(  One of the comics we got for free is an ugli doll one :) :)

Today is also the 4th day of may in other words May the 4th be with you :)  I hope you can figure that one out.  If not here is a hint:  think Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader :)

There will be more posts coming up soon including a review of some maplelea items.

That's it for now.
McKenna :)
