There is exciting news for the Edwards family. Mrs. and Mr. Edwards are expecting a baby! The whole family is thrilled and can’t wait to meet the new baby. They’ve been busy starting to get things ready for the arrival due around early February.
Samantha, Addy, and Rachel have been trying to stay on top of both their homework and their chores. Samantha and Rachel are both eager to meet their new little cousin and keep thinking of possible names that they suggest to their aunt and uncle.
Fall has arrived in Star Valley. The days have been starting to cool down and there are plenty of colorful leaves on the ground. Families are decorating for Halloween, many of the children are figuring out what costumes they’re going to wear, and the town is hoping to hold a Fall Festival.
Samantha enjoyed a lovely stroll through the town on her way home from school.
Today is Gia Natalia Kwan’s and Maryellen June Larkin’s birthday! The two girls had a small joint birthday party for themselves where they enjoyed a chocolate roll cake and candy cups. They had a fun time celebrating their birthdays together.
Happy New Year! I hope you are all enjoying the first month of 2022. All of my dolls are in the process of changing out of their holiday outfits. They had a wonderful holiday season, however it is time to put away the decorations and start decorating for Valentine’s Day! There has been a bit of a cold snap so many of the dolls have enjoyed cozying up inside for the past week.
Arrr, mateys! ‘Tis Talk Like a Pirate Day once again, a day when you an’ yer dolls can pillage, plunder, look fer buried treasure, swashbuckle, an enjoy th’ high tide!
I have a treat fer ye scallywags an’ landlubbers alike. I have fixed up and added back th’ first four Red Saga photo stories from over th’ years. I also have a sort of brand new adventure. I took photos for part five o’ th’ Red Star Saga back in 2016, however I didn’t get around to finishin’ writin’ th’ story. I have just finished writin’ th’ story now an’ have posted this new adventure on th’ Photo Stories page which you can find under th’ My Doll Play section!
So sit back an’ enjoy readin’ up on th’ fun an’ silly adventures about th’ crew o’ th’ Red Star.
I hope you’re having a nice holiday weekend (I know for some of us who work, it might not feel much different than any other weekend/week).
I hope that you’re able to spend some time with family and friends, and also take some time out for relaxing on your own, maybe playing dolls or working on a craft.
I’ve gotten a head start on Fall and Halloween crafts, both for my dolls and myself. The past few years, Fall and Winter holidays have felt rushed, and I’m hoping to try to spend a bit less time on my devices and a bit more time on trying to enjoying this time of year that we’re entering. Not sure how successful I’ll be, nevertheless even a little less time on my devices will hopefully help.
Many of the dolls are enjoying the extended weekend before their second week of school starts. Kirsten found a scarf that she started a few years ago and is determined to finish it this year. She’s not sure yet if she’s going to keep it for herself or if she’s going to give it to a friend as a Christmas gift.
A few weeks ago, Darci went to American Girl Place New York and picked out a Mini Kaya doll! She quickly read Kaya’s books with her new doll and has been playing with Mini Kaya every day. Do you have a favorite historical AG doll?
Welcome to the new blog for Cherished Playtime! I am trying to figure out how to use WordPress. I will say that I find Weebly’s drag and drop editor easier to use, and also feel that my basic html is easier as well. I would like to be able to get the hang of using WordPress and be able to post more dolly content in this blog format. For now, I am most likely planning to keep the other website pages as is (I know that the images need major cleaning up from that Photobucket fiasco a few years ago. That may still take a long time, unfortunately.
