Merry Christmas! Ellowyne Wilde here. So excited about the upcoming holidays! We’ve been busy decorating, wrapping presents, coiffing for parties, and anticipating the arrival of a new friend: Urban Legend Lizette!
Last week, we enfolded her into our family with as much enthusiasm as a pack of moody dolls can muster and Lizette wasted no time jumping into the mix of activities (her skills with a tube of icing are quite remarkable).
And while some of us affix candy to gingerbread houses, others of us affix ornaments to Christmas trees.
Tori, bless her little heart, has been wrapping presents for days…
…and some of us could stand a little less primping and a little more productivity (oh, get to the party already, ladies!).
Here are a few different snapshots of our lovely new front porch decked out for Christmas:
Yes, it’s quite festive around here right now, although I’m hoping Laurie will toss a disco ball our way for New Year’s Eve…
All we’re missing is a cozy fireplace hung with stockings, but I’m told that’s on Laurie’s To Do list for 2015. (And blurting out something like that on her blog is kind of like a binding contract, right? Now she’s obligated to make me—er, all of us—a fireplace. Aaah, I can feel the warmth already.)
We dolls hope everyone has a safe and joyous holiday season. Don’t forget to schedule in time amidst the busyness to rest and soak up the more delightful aspects of Christmas…such as driving through neighborhoods to look at lights, listening to favorite carols, watching favorite holiday movies, quality hours spent with family and friends, couch time with a mug of hot cocoa and a good book—
Oooo, now that last one sounds inviting. Say, girls, do any of you know where I put my reading glasses?
