{ Snow Day ~ Inside Fun! }


Well, by now in the DC area, we are starting to get pretty tired of all this snow.  See, we are not used to getting this much snow and all though I do love to go outside and play in it, I'm sorta getting tired of not going to school to see my friends.  Course, that doesn't stop our teachers from posting "snow work" online for us to do.....my math teacher is quite fond of doing this to me every single time we miss a day of school due to snow.  Who ever heard of "snow work"??  I think we should all boycott it!  Anywho, I decided to take a break in between my math worksheets and play with my Julie doll and Cindy's Ruthie doll. 

I have been sooooo looking forward to playing with my dolls at their new table we got last week.  Our good friend, Echo, told us about this "Re-ment" table that was perfect for our dolls.  You can see more about the table and chairs and other Re-ment goodies by visiting Echo's blog - From Echo With Love


We already had some really cute dolly sized toys for our dolls;  My little Julie loves my "lucky pickle" charm and Ruthie is completely ga-ga about Cindy's "lucky cow carton".  We also have itty bitty scissors and a miniature pocket knife that the girls pretend was found at a civil war battlefield, and a mini Lego chihuahua and iPhone! Then there is just other random stuff we have found here and there for our dolls....Cindy and I are suckers for anything that is teeny tiny for our dolls.  We might break down and put our money together to get one of the Re-ment accessories to go with the table but for now, we're good with what we have! 


Just as I was really starting to get into playing, Hope heard Daisy whimpering up on the top bunk in my room and came to "save" her.  Daisy had wanted to be up there for a nap but of course she changed her mind when she saw Honey getting into the fun of playing with me and my dolls. 


"Poor wittle Daisy" Hope was cooing.  "Did that mean Chwistina banish you to the bed so you couldn't join in the fun?  Come here pwecious."  Oh brother, I hate it when Hope talks baby/puppy talk to the dogs.  I mean weally, wight?  LOL.


So, back to dolls...now Honey was into helping Ruthie play with the tiny brown mouse.  To me it looks more like a cross between a baby kangaroo and a rat but Cindy prefers to call it a mouse, so I'm sticking with that even though I think it's being a bit generous.  I prefer the little grey mouse, so that's who Julie gets to play with.  He's super cute with big ears and a long mousey tail.....♥ him! 

 

I'm thinking we are gonna have school tomorrow so I best get my butt in gear and go finish that math worksheet (blech!!)  I'm gonna sit here just a few minutes more with my girls and Honey-poo and then it's back to reality.  I wish I could play with my dolls all day long!  


Thanks for reading!!!!  ~Christina ♫

  1. We're getting tired of the snow too! Marie has an american girl doll, but not me. I prefer to run around outside, when it's warm!

    1. Hello there, Yes, we love being outside when it's warm too! Today got up into the low 50's and believe me, that felt W.A.R.M. to us! We actually opened the windows a bit to let in some fresh air! And, even though we have had snow in this part of the U.S. as late as March, we are hopeful that the snow is not going to revisit until December!!! ☺ ~Christina ♫

    1. Hello! We did have so much fun with our dolls and the new table.....Our dolls were terribly excited to have a table just their size! We hope one day to do a photo tour of the different rooms in our dorm. Is there a particular piece of furniture you'd like to know more about? Feel free to ask! ~Christina ♫

    1. Hi Jaclynn, I did have LOADS of fun! That little phone is actually part of one of Trey's Lego figures - shhhhh, don't tell him I "borrowed" it for my Julie! He might get mad at me! ~Christina ♫

  4. I hear you about the snow. It's great, but now you can't even really play in it because of the melting and refreezing...and all the dirt on it now. BLECH. Oh well, less than 20 days to the first day of spring. :)
    Good luck with the "snow work."

    1. Hi Melody, I agree completely. We all love the snow but you know, like, in moderation! Not this snow but the one before - that was the best one cause we built two huge igloos and that was loads of fun but this time the snow was not the best kind for snowmen or igloos so we just decided to stay in. We're all really looking forward to Spring......and Easter!! ~Christina ♫

    2. Yes, the previous storm was "packable." I have to admit that I like the light fluffy stuff because it is so much easier to shovel. We were thrilled that the last storm barely dusted our town and so sorry it pounded yours. Very much looking forward to spring and Easter. Only 39 days to Easter. :-)

    3. Today, we finally said "goodbye' to most of the snow piles around our house....except a couple that are in deep shade...I bet those will stick around to remind us of our extra snowy winter for at least another week! ~Cindy ♥

  8. Here in California, we're hardly getting any rain! I'm sorry about your snow :(. Where do you keep your clothes? I'm exploring different methods of storage for my girls.

    1. Hi Evie, Fortunately the snow is disappearing...yay!! We keep our clothes organized in plastic multi-drawer organizers we got a Target a couple years ago. And, we put outfits folded nicely into zippy bags to keep them protected. Some of our dresses are on hangers in our closet but most of our clothes/shoes/outerwear items are in the drawers. HTH! ~Cindy ♥

  9. What camera do you use? Your shots always turn out so beautiful. Keep up the great work! Is there anyway you could share some photography tips?

    1. Hi Evie, We use a Nikon DSLR and also do some post processing. We pay quite a lot of attention to the direction of the lighting to. Best tip we can give you is to learn how to use whatever camera you have in MANUAL mode. This way you are in control of your settings and are well on your way to awesome photos! ~Cindy ♥
