Indoor Skating

New Skates Rock

Hey, Eelee, what are you doing?
Trying on the skates the gang from Say Hello to My Little Friends sent.
Why? It's snowing outside. No place to skate.
They look so cool and have to be more comfortable than our other pair. Besides, it's not unusual to skate inside. Remember that show Facts of Life. Tootie was always on skates.
That was a studio, not a house.
They're brand new. No dirt to transfer.

Okay. Good luck with that.
Here I go! This is so cool! 
(sudden change of flooring) Ahhh! (crash)
What happened! Are you okay?
(laughing) Yeah. I guess you were right. The switch from carpet to hard wood made me lose balance.
Well, I'm glad you're okay.
Me too. I was right though, these skates are awesome. 
Thank you again to the Say Hello gang!

See you later! Have a great day!

Surprise! Surprise!

What is in Here?!

We had a lovely Christmas. Yesterday Melody mentioned we'd be sharing some of our presents.
This pile includes items from Gramma Enne & Opan Hans, Nana Kestrel, and the Say Hello to My Little Friends Crew!
We're going to look at the smallest today.
I have a Mineez.
I have a FlipaZoo. Shall we flip-a-coin? (giggles) Just kidding, you go first; that looks more challenging than mine.
(struggles withe plastic) Ugh! This. Is. Nuts. I need the scissors. (struggles with scissors) Finally! (pops open the blue lantern) A little yellow bag. 
(cuts bag open) (laughs) He's cute! Kind of squishy too. Oh, I get it! They're like squinkies! Min-eez!
Does that say they glow in the dark?
Yes! Awesome! According to the paper, he's Au Naturale. 
Well, he can find make a house out of the lantern. Love it!
My turn! 
(tears open package) I was right, mine is much easier! No extra wrapping either! Ta da! A golden hippo.
Hippo! Are you sure? 
I don't see hippo on this list anywhere? Golden lion; does it have a mane?
Golden bear?
Maybe. May I look?
Hmmm, I see what you mean. What does it change to?
Looks like clear orange tiger.
Okay, it has to be the bear.
These are so much fun! 
Thank you to the Say Hello gang! 
Hey, did you get any fun surprises like these? If yes, what type?

Xyra's Notes
My apologies with regards to the photos being bright and dim. I thought I took double shots on each pose. One of the fun things I received this year was the American Girl Doll Photo kit. I bet a lot of people did. My hope - even the basics presented will help me improve my photography. I truly appreciate our followers hanging in and supporting our blog. 

Have a great day! Come again soon!

Christmas Program


How was your Christmas? 
What did you do on Christmas eve? 
We participated in the candlelight service. 
The lighting wasn't that great for photos.
So when we got home we took a lovely team photo.
Kaya and Lea were part of the special instrumental music. 
They found a unique What Child is This duet arrangement for flute and cello. 
It was beautiful. 
Grace, Lanie, and I were part of the choir. 
To top it off, Melody read the part of Mary! That's double duty!
Haley and Kirsten weren't in the program. They're going to show you a couple of our gifts tomorrow.

Best wishes,

Holiday Prep 2017 H

Post Pageant

Haley, Grace, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Lea, Melody, 2 or more

Last Tree

It was really good all of us could work together on this last tree.
We worked quickly so we could finish in time to go to Lady Webby's.
So we didn't take any working photos.
Just a team photo.

Christmas Movies and Birthdays

After finishing the tree we piled in the car and headed south to Lady Webby's.
Lady Vanyer and the rest of us helped decorate the kitchen for Lady Webby's birthday party.
Xyra made a French toast bake. Super yummy.
Vanyer's spinach quiche was outstanding!
Webby loved the decorations!
Princess Bella approved too. (giggles)
After filling our plates we got settled in for the movie.
Today we watched Elf!

It's one of Webby and Vanyer's favorite movies.

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Best wishes,
