April 19th, 2014

A quick update! We’re back home now. This evening, Mom found Foster, Fleur, and Robinson on ebay, so they should be home in a week or so. Milton, Caleb, Mom, and I are feeling out of sorts, so this is good news. Mom’s next paycheck will bring Chloe and Charlotte home.

The AG girls are in Mom’s sister’s garage right now, but we hope they can come home soon.

Time go to go bed now!

April 10th, 2014

A few days ago, there was a fire at our house. Mom was at work, and her mom, dad, and the dog got out fine. But it was mostly in our room, so all our things and a lot of our friends are gone. Milton, Caleb and I were in Mom's car, and four of the AG girls and the BJD kids were downstairs, so they were saved. Mom says that she is going to replace most of our friends as time goes on, since we've decided that it's their spirit that lives on. Mom, Oliver, and the rest of us are in a hotel room until they clean up the house.

We will still post though. It just might take a little bit before we have something to post about. Talk to you all later!

March 23rd, 2014

This is going to be a bit of a random post, because we have bits of random things we want to share!

On my Twitter feed, Mom has been posting pictures of my friends and me. She’s been using her ipad and different photo editing apps.

We’ve been thinking of doing a daily or weekly photo assignment thing—but she says that she’s not sure if she can come up with enough pictures! I say she takes almost daily pictures of Oliver on her Instagram feed!

She has also went back to sewing! She has gone back to sewing for the American Girl dolls that live here. This is Molly and her new sundress! Last time, she started with that and then branched out to clothes for me and my friends, so I hope it goes that way again! (There are patterns for AG clothes, but not for random sized bears and horse plushies! Must build up confidence first!)

Lastly, Wisconsin has decided to flirt with spring. I say ‘flirt’ because we will have a 50 degree F day, and then followed by a 25 degree F day—and right now it’s snowing! I’m not sure what season we’re supposed to be on, but both Mom and I are going to focus on the 50 degree F days!

Hope you all are having a good day! Talk to you later!

February 22nd, 2014

Mom has been interested in my twitter account again. To read our twitter feeds, Mom uses hootsuite, both on the computer and the iPad. When she used it to read her twitter, she would sometimes look at the button that was mine and remember all the very nice people on there! A few days ago, she clicked on it and all the nice people were still there! I followed some new people and read through lots of tweets! I hope we can keep it up again!


Mom has been making dolly food out of polymer clay. Technically, she's making it for her ball jointed dolls and a different set for the American Girl dolls. The AG sized stuff fits my friends and I too!

It is a nice, quiet morning-- at least as quiet as it can be with Oliver around! Talk to you later!

January 19th, 2014

Mom and I have some time, so we thought we would pop in for a bit. Things have been all right around here. Not too exciting, but I guess that’s a good thing!

2014-01-19 15.12.13-2

This is a picture from today—with filters and such from her ipad. I like the bright sun! It seems like it hasn’t been sunny for ages! And it was even a nice temperature, 35* F (about 2* C). I told Mom that she should have taken me outside!

2014-01-19 15.44.17

Oliver is still being Oliver. He’s 24 pounds (almost 11 kg) now. He has lots of puppy muscles! Mom says that he is still a force to be reckoned with. I think he’s certainly a handful!

Mom has decided to go back to school. This time, it is for web design. She says that it is a much better career for her if she ever gets to become a hermit. (I like that idea because then I get to be around all the time!) I like it because now she sits at the computer for longer times and I can help her. We also think that we might play with my blog and change things up a little bit once she figures out some more things!

Besides learning through school, we’ve been playing with a website called CodeAcademy. It’s fun! We’ve been doing stuff with HTML and CSS. Mom says that she is glad that most of it is already done here on Blogger! This is the main page that she has to use for one of her classes’ assignments. It’s very simple, but Mom says you have to start somewhere. (Her photography website is done with an editor that does most of the programming for you, so it’s fancier quicker!) We will keep you all updated on it, since it’s a part of making Mom a happier person, therefore more posting!

Talk to you all later!

One of the many things Mom does instead of helping me with my blog is play on Pinterest. I thought if I wanted to write about some of the teddy and doll related boards Mom follows she would stop pinning and help me type! She says that she will try!

For the people who don’t spend tons of time online like Mom, Pinterest is a way to collect pictures, links, and other visual things in a way so you can admire the pictures later. You organize things into boards, and follow other people with like interests.

Mom mostly follows boards that have something to do with her biggest interests, reading, dogs, and her latest obsession, an actor from Sherlock, the BBC TV show. There are a few teddy boards mixed in there though! This one is one of them!

Here is another board. I think it’s amazing how people can gather to share pictures and information about hobbies on the internet! Who would’ve thought there would be so many boards on teddies alone!

Another dolly thing that Mom likes to look at on Pinterest is the American Girl stuff. Someday, Mom hopes to make more pretty clothes for all of us. She’s amazed by the wonderful work that is out there.

Are there any boards that you follow that are interesting? Mom and I are open to all sorts of ideas!

Happy late Thanksgiving for our fellow American friends—Mom says that when you work retail, you should be happy that you remember to wish anyone anything during this season, so I’m happy with one day late! We hope you're all having a good month! I hope to write more soon!

Later,
