Lindsay in the Garden

Hiya! It's Elyssa here!:) Nikki took some photos of Lindsay in the garden this evening, and they came out very nicely.:)

This one looks very nice.:) It caught the light quite well. (Some of the others came out a bit dark.)

This one looks a bit strange with the angle and the lighting.:P

This is better though!:)

This is almost my favorite, but not quite.;)

 I think this one is my favorite favorite.:)


 I like the giant flower pot in this one.

And this is really nice, too!:)

We hope you liked the pictures, and I'm sorry the post is so short.:)

New Blogger Award:)

newbloggeraward - Copy

Hello!:) This is Nikki. AJ just nominated me for the New Blogger Award. (Thanks very much!:)) It's an award for people with less than 100 posts who have been blogging for under a year, including any other blogs they have. (And I've just realized I only just fit into that last category! I started this blog in early-mid November last year! Boy, it doesn't feel that long... 'course, that could be something to do with not posting for half of that year...:P) There are four questions, and you can nominate 4 to 7 other people.:)

Here are the questions AJ gave me:

1. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

My dolls!;) Although I have great fun blogging about my dad and '70s Doctor Who (on the same blog!;))

2. What's your favorite holiday? Why?

My favorite holiday is either Easter or Christmas; I'm not sure. But I like Easter mostly because of the time of year, and Christmas more for the fun of the tree, and singing carols and things.:)

3. What post would you like to see me do more? Why?

Well, I'm not sure, but photostories are generally my favorite things on blogs.:)
4. What's your favorite thing about fall?

All the leaves, and the color of the trees in the woods in you look out on them from on top of a hill. It's just beautiful!:) I also kind of like going out dressed warmly in the nippy weather, because it feels so safe and cozy. I don't like the weather itself though!;)

Now, I'll nominate:

Four Friends In College

These are all lovely blogs, and they deserve the award very much.:) Here are my questions:

1. How old were you when you got your first American Girl doll? (If you aren't allowed to give out your age, and you can't answer without doing that, then just say when you got her.:))

2. Do you like sewing for your dolls?

3. Why did you decide to start your blog?

4. How did you come up with your blog's name?

I hope you like the questions, and thank you again for the nomination, AJ!:)

UPDATE: "LiveLaughDolls" have moved to The Dolls Of Maple Street. Sorry about that.:P

Photos of Anna

Hello! It's Sarah. We're sorry we took so long to get back, but we're finally here!
Yesterday, Nikki took some photographs of Anna, and I think they're lovely.:)

 This is the first one.

The white tiger belongs to Nikki, and she thought it would make a good prop.:)

 I really like close-ups of Anna. They make her look so pretty!

This is the same pose, but from a different angle.

Here's another close-up.:)

And a different angle again.

Hugging the tiger. (That doesn't really sound right, does it...?)

And lots of close-ups! I really do like these ones.:)

This one's nice, but it didn't come out as well as it should have.

I like this one; it looks all cozy!

 This one is very pretty!

 And this one's lovely, too. I think close-ups work well on Anna, because often the light reflects off her hair so beautifully she looks like an angel.

This one's a different pose again. There were some pictures from farther off, but they didn't work out too well.

This is only a little different, though.:)

This one seems amazingly beautiful to me - more than I can figure out why, but I love it.

This one's similar. I think it might be the angle, but I really like it.

 This one's from the other side, and I like it, too.

And this one's very pretty!

 These two close-ups are very nice ones, too.:)

 Another different pose.

I think that tiger makes this one look very cute.:)

 And here are another two close-ups. I like the one on the left especially.:) (Sorry for so many close-ups though.)

I like these ones very much, too. I think the lighting is very nice on the first one and the last one.

 I think this one is my favorite! I don't know why, but I just love it.:)

 And these are very, very nice, too.

This one is the same pose from farther away.

 This is Anna without the tiger. She's very pretty, but I think the photos come out best when she has the tiger to focus on.:)

This is a nice close-up though.:)

I think this is my favorite close-up.:) It was taken somewhere in the middle, but I forgot to upload it until the end.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! (And sorry if there were too many; there are over 200 of them on the computer, and I like them all, so it was hard to pick.) Hopefully, we'll have another post soon, so goodbye until then!:)
