Unexpected...

Hi! This photo-story is basically about Rebecca's arrival, hope you enjoy! 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was a lazy Saturday morning, Mia and Felicity were discussing appropriate slippers for Saturday's, Saige was choosing an apple after riding and Kirsten was being productive by practicing her stretching.  








"So, you think pink is better than blue?" Felicity questioned as Mia leaned back  
Only three? Saige thought to herself, choosing an apple from the bowl 


"One, two, three, one, two, three..." Kirsten repeated, stretching her leg 



Nobody noticed an odd pile of boxes slowly scooting toward them... 

The very top package was slowly making its way off the pile, until... 



CRASH! Everybody turned wondering where the startling noise came from 
Felicity threw her hands up in surprise when she discovered who was their, Saige accidentally knocked the bowl of apples off the table and Kirsten fell straight onto her bed (at least it was a soft landing) and Mia just looked. Clearly, this was not a good impression. 
"Hi!", Rebecca said, "Sorry for the mess, as you can see I came with a lot." 


 After an awkward silence everybody rushed over, wondering why and how this person was here, Rebecca explained that she was going to be moving in with them but had to move a lot of stuff and since she did not know them, she didn't know weather they would help or not. 
"Hey!" Kirsten said, balancing on a stack of boxes, "We can put the boxes on the top of our closet.  


Soon the job was complete and Saige, after helping out them away, was very excited to try on all of the outfits. 


"So, these are all of yours?" Kirsten question, Rebecca nodded, "Lucky!" Kirsten replied "I didn't come with anything!" They both laughed as they helped Saige push the last of the boxes on top, Meanwhile...



Some of the items had fallen out, Mia and Felicity took the opportunity to try them out, "do you think they look good?" Mia asked Rebecca 


Rebecca giggled, "Yep, you look very fancy." She said "What is going on?" Marie Grace said, just coming back from the library. 

 *Awkward Silence*

Rebecca shyly stepped forward "Hi, I'm Rebecca and I am the newest member in the family."  


Phew, it was really intense their for a minute, Thought Rebecca 



Of course, everybody had to join in on the group hug.  



Group photo! Wow, 6 dolls :) Thanks for looking,

Sewing Sunday

Hey, so this week I stumbled upon some AMAZING deals at a local secondhand shop.They were having a summer clearance sale and all of the clothes in the racks were $0.50! I was able to get a baby swimsuit, jumper (featured in this post), dress and top.  Also at the shop was a Rebecca for $60! We  did not get her as just a couple weeks before we bought Rebecca :) (Great deal though!) So this Sunday Sewing post will be featuring the romper that we got, I think it is 3-6 month, anyway, I don't know what I want to do with the bottom part but I will be featuring the top part of it now. Their is something about yellow that makes hazel eyed dolls really pop and since we have both Rebecca and Mia their were plenty of choices :) Anyway, onto the post- 
I did not get a before photo of the outfit but I didn't make any drastic changes..  

I first tried the outfit on the doll, fitted the excess fabric in the back, cut the straps off, hemmed it, sewed on the straps to the right place and stitched it up in the back.  




It is starting to feel like fall around here but this top will look perfect for a bumble bee on Halloween . 


The back of it is a little mismatched but oh well. 


So cute! 

What photo do you like best? Do you're dolls have any idea of what they are going to be for Halloween?
