Epic Hide-And-Seek Fail {A Photostory}

Cocoa’s POV

IMG_3829

My alarm rang. I sighed and laboriously turned around.

IMG_3831

I had to jam the button twice to get it to turn off.

IMG_3832

That done, I rubbed my eyes. Is it morning already? I wondered to myself before realizing that I had only been taking a short nap. XD

Truth to be told, though, I was kinda bored, even though I was still tired. School had ended early for me this year (lucky!) and I was already knee deep into planning out my entire fun-filled summer, but still.

I decided to go find my BFF.

IMG_3841

Cupcake was sitting in front of a mirror she had propped up, dressing Petunia.

IMG_3842

“Hi, Cupcake!” I greeted as I rounded the corner.

IMG_3843

“Hey!” she returned. “I’m bored – what about you?”

IMG_3844

“Me too,” I admitted.

“Then let’s find something to do!” she piped cheerily.

“Like what?”

IMG_3845

“Um…” she bit her lip. “I don’t know. Google it.”

IMG_3847

“How helpful,” I muttered to myself, but got out my laptop anyways and googled “things to do when bored.”

IMG_3848

Pretty much none of the search results suited me. I sighed and looked up, but Cupcake wasn’t paying attention.

“Cupcake?”

IMG_3850

She ignored me. “Hey, we should play Hide-And-Seek,” she suggested flippantly.

“Um, what??”

“I said we should play hide-and-seek.”

IMG_3851

Sometimes my BFF can have the weirdest ideas, I thought to myself. “First of all, we can’t play with only two people…”

IMG_3852

“What about three?” Mimsy asked as she walked towards where we were sitting.

“Um…”

IMG_3854

“I’ll join, too, if this isn’t girls only.” Hummus surprised us all by appearing on the scene with one of his famous grins.

IMG_3858

I feel like being nice for once, so I speak up. “Sure, why not?”

“The rules are simple,” Cupcake says. “You can only hide inside this room…wait. That’s basically it.”

IMG_3857

“Not it!” Mimsy exclaimed.

“Not it!” Hummus followed up.

“Not it!” I cried quickly before Cupcake could have the chance.

“Oh fine,” Cupcake sighs dramatically, making us all giggle. She turns her back and begins the countdown.

Hummus’s POV

IMG_3873

Five down, twenty-five to go, I speculated as I stared at the big shelf where our owners kept all their possessions.

IMG_3876

Using my foot as a springboard, I reached up and began to climb.

IMG_3878

There wasn’t much there: a couple of packs of cards and some stationary.

IMG_3880

I leaped to the next shelf, which also held no hiding options.

IMG_3884

And so I reached the third, which was quite crowded.

IMG_3885

There were two necklace boxes sitting side by side…

 

IMG_3897

But by then I could hear Cupcake counting to fifteen. There was no time to waste. My foot perilously knocked down one of the necklace boxes (whoops. remind me to pick that up for later!) as I climbed to the tallest section of the shelf.

IMG_3900.jpg

And there I saw my prospective hiding place: a state quarter book with a cozy chink between it and the corner of the shelf.

In a flash, I disappeared behind it.

Cocoa’s POV

IMG_3863

Cupcake was counting down already. You should have thought of a good spot before hand, I reprimanded myself as I hurried across the bedroom, trying to find a good place to hide.

I tried several places and scurrried away, dissatisfied, until I looked up and saw…

IMG_3864

…the mirror.

IMG_3867

I slipped behind it, panting, and let myself relax as I waited.

Mimsy’s POV

IMG_3907

I climbed up the pink stool, panicking. Cupcake was at 10 already, and I had not yet hid.

IMG_3910

I made a flying leap to the bed post.

And there I saw the bundle of blanket lying on the unmade bed. What better hiding place?

IMG_3911

I slipped inside and readily disappeared from the outside world.

IMG_3916

“3-2-1, ready or not, here I come!!” I cried gaily to nobody in particular, whirling around and half-expecting to see some unattentive paw sticking out.

IMG_3919

And there I began the search.

I searched under the bed, in the clothes drawers, and pretty much everywhere.

IMG_3929

And then I leaped on the purple blanket. To my surprise, it was quite lumpyfor my taste.

IMG_3931

And so I tore back the blankets and peered inside…

IMG_3932

Mimsy sat up right in front of my eyes, almost making me scream. “Found you!” I exclaimed triumphantly after I had recovered from my shock.

“Fine, fine,” she laughed. “Now let’s go find Cocoa.”

IMG_3940

“Do you know where she is?” I asked.

“Nope,” she replied quickly, much too quickly to make me believe her. “Well, on second thought…”

“Yes?”

“She’s on this side of the room.”

With the use of that clue, I promptly found her.

IMG_3942

“I have no idea where Hummus is,” Cocoa groaned as the three of us set off together. “I heard him on the bed, and then on the table, and then tinkering with the vases, and basically everywhere.” she sighed. “Perhaps in the drawers?”

“He probably found a really good hiding place,” Mimsy said.

Where could he be? 

IMG_3944

“Wait! Guys!” I diverted everybody’s thoughts as I scampered towards the shelf that our owners had just recently cleaned. “It’s so cuuute!”

IMG_3945

She was pointing at a drawing of a baby, which was indeed adorable.

“Speaking of which, we haven’t explored this shelf for the life of us…”

IMG_3947

“Ooh, look! A deck of cards!”

IMG_3950

“AHH GUYS! IT’S A BALLERINA DOLL!”

“Do you think it can talk?”

“Ahh, no. But it’s so pretty!!!”

IMG_3952

“Whoever made this is so creative,” she echoed.

IMG_3954

“And aww, that mirror holds such a sweet message on it!” Cocoa joined her on the top shelf.

IMG_3956

“Can this play actual music?” Mimsy wondered, cranking the knob on the music box. “Why, yes, it does! How cool!”

IMG_3958

“Now I am definitely trying this recipe,” I gushed.

Hmm, maybe we were having too much fun.

IMG_3962

Either way, we all jumped in surprise when almost half an hour later, Hummus’s head appeared.

“Anyone still interested in finding me?”

  1. I LOVED that! The ending was SO fantastic – that sounds like something I’d do (get completely distracted)!!
    I’m just really currently in a state of momentary confusion. I think I might have met you once, or maybe you just coincidently spell your name the same way as the other girl I met and have a sister ironically named the same as the other girl. 🙂 Hehe.
    Have you ever done the National Bible Bee?

    1. Thanks! ❤ That's something I would do, too…

      Hahaha! I thought you'd never notice! Yup, I have met you through the NBB! You were actually the one who gave me that accessory with my name spelled in Scrabble letters which is shown in one of the pictures! It's so pretty – I still have it on my shelf. 🙂

      1. REBEKAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I KNEW IT!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 But you knew this entire time and was so cruel as to not let me know?!!?!?!??!?! 🙂 😛
        Wow. So like… the first time you commented on my blog, I was literally like, “Oh, how cool! She spells her name like THE Rebekah!” (yes, I’m calling you THE Rebekah instead of using your last name. 🙂 ) And for a split second I thought it’d be cool if you WERE THE Rebekah. 😀 But of course, that would just be too ironic, so I dismissed the thought. When I saw the ‘Elizabeth’ thing, I was like, “Wait a second….” and then I was frantically searching the blog for more clues – when I saw ‘owned by Isaac’ I ran to my sister and was like, “I’m right, aren’t I?!? Rebekah has a brother named Isaac, right?” And she’s like, “Uh, yeah…”
        THIS IS SO COOL! I had resigned to the point that you really had disappeared off of the face of the earth (off ST, off Quizlet, everywhere!) when suddenly.. this?! 😀 😀 😀 😀
        I can’t believe you still have that! That means a lot to me!!! 🙂 What exactly is on the back (if it’s my name, just say ‘it’s your name’ or whatever – seriously, I can’t remember what’s on the back)? It drove me crazy because I knew that if I knew what was on the back, I could figure out if it was really YOU!! (and yes, a super long comment…. 😀 )
        Wow. I’m seriously just now getting over the fact that you’re… you! 😀

      2. XD XD I CANNOT STOP SMILING RIGHT NOW 😀 😀 .

        Yes, it’s meeee!!!! And yes, I am verrry cruelll!!! I thought I’d tell you that I was ME but then I was like, nah, and then I thought I’d tell you again, but then I was like, why would she care. That’s so funny and it means a lot to that you actually still REMEMBER me like that! I am SO sorry that I disappeared off the face of the earth like I did; when you last sent an email to me (when was that, like two years ago???) my mom was going to make sense of the whole letter-sending thing, but we were busy moving and thenbusydoingotherthings…and then I guess working that out just slipped…I am sooo sorry about that!! But I definitely didn’t forget you; in fact, I actually found your blog when stalking your G+! It was the first doll blog I had EVER seen and I thought it was the most creative idea ever! That got me to the days of DWOD, Happy House Of AG, Small Dolls In A Big World, and others…and finally my own blog! So you were technically the one who inspired me to start blogging in the first place. 🙂

        It’s super pretty! As for what’s on the back, it’s my Quizlet username: RBB5. 😉 I absolutely love it!!
        I so hope you’re coming to Nationals this year so we can meet up again! (And ooh, I could maybe even get to meet one of your dolls in real life…) *evil grin* that’d be awesome!!! #longcommentaswell

        YES, I’M MEEEE!!! 😀 😀 😀

      3. It IS you!!! 😀 You ARE cruel!!!! Heyyyyyyyy! Of course I’d care!!!! 😀 You and K8GB were the first BBers I had met on ST and then at Nationals, and when you and Elizabeth were in finals together, I was seriously holding my breath every time you came up to recite. It made me so nervous!!! 😀 😀 It was a couple of months after Nationals 2014, right? So that would make it two – almost three years ago. 🙂 I remember – you were moving to… oh, wait, I won’t say… but I remember!! 😀 I totally understand the whole ‘busydoingotherthings’ thing. 😀 You HAVE BEEN STALKING ME!!! I totally forgot about G+… 😀 I rarely get on there anymore.. hmm.. maybe I should. I wonder who else is stalking me. 😀 Aw, thank you! That’s so sweet! (except I’m still trying to figure out how a human being could be THAT cruel as to know about the other person and not even give a clue!!!!!! :D)
        Wow! I actually inspired someone else to blog!!!! 🙂 I love your blog…. and I still stick to the fact that your photography is absolutely incredible. 🙂
        Oh yeah!!! Now I remember!!! 🙂 You’re doing BB again?! YAY! *cheers and throws confetti into the air* So are we! And I am totally determined to make it to Nationals (I made it last year but we weren’t able to go) and actually GO this year! I would LOVE to see you again! It’s been like, three years!!! I’m so glad you found me though… 🙂 Though…. I’ll still bring up that whole stalking-not-letting-me-have-a-hint thing. 😀 😀 Yes, of course I’d bring my dolls! (why wouldn’t I?!)
        AND I’M MEEE! (not that it’s as impressive, but… XD)

      4. Yess, it’s me, the cruel little bean. 😀 😀 😀 And haha, thanks so much for thinking of me!! That’s so cool and encouraging that you were cheering us on. 🙂 Ooh, now I remember – almost three years ago??? Wowwww…. We’ve moved to a new location from the one I told you, by the way! 🙂 Yes, we do move a lot…

        AND YES I HAVE BEEN STALKING YOU. 🙂 You followed me on G+ and then I took a peek at your profile…and saw this queer Dolls N’ All post you shared about??? That definitely did inspire me! Aww, thanks, I hope my photography’s getting better. Yours is absolutely mindblowing as well!!!
        I really, really hope we both get to go to Nationals and meet each other (and your dolls!) after so long!!! I guess we can just be internet friends until then… 🙂 AHAHAHA I am quite a strange human being with an ability of being cruel beyond human means…XD jk
        Of course it’s impressive that you’re YOUUUU!!!!!!! *throws confetti*

      8. That is exactly what you are. 😀 I loved watching it – ya’ll did such a fantastic job!! 😀 Woah.. that seems like such a long time ago, but I remember it like yesterday! We had met on ST, had a super long conversation, and then met at the meeting. 🙂 That was so fun! You’ve moved again? Wow, I haven’t moved since like, 2007. XD
        Oh yeaaaah… I forgot about following you first! hehe. 🙂 Queer? I like that word! Nice job using it. 😀
        Your photography is INCREDIBLE! I especially admire how on earth you get it so perfectly lit inside. My inside photography is atrocious. <how'd you like that word? 😀
        I can't believe I have to wait *goes and checks calendar* SIX MONTHS! NOooooo! 🙂 You're right though – we can still be internet friends!! 🙂 Except this time, we've actually met before. Mwhahaha. That makes this internet friendship all the better!!
        Yes, those strange human beings who are so desperately cruel. 😀

        Oh, thank you, thank you very much! *elegantly bows with a sweeping flourish of the hand* 😀 😀

        True, true, I'll give you that. Thank you for putting that up there. I probably wouldn't have thought about it had you not put Elizabeth's name and the Scrabble tile one up there! 🙂

        Yess! I had forgotten about the 557! What all did that stand for, anyways? And I'm sure you've told me before, but what was the 5 in RBB5 for?

        I love long comments. That's all I can say. XD

      I love the word queer, too! And thanks so much – though I wouldn’t say my indoor photography is like you tell me…you should see Prank Wars episode #1. The photography in there is absolutely ATROCIOUS; nothing like DWOD… XD And your photo shoots…😍😍😍
      (You’ve made me want to say atrocious 24/7 now. Congrats. *hands you medal*)
      What, six months???? *sobs* I CANNOT WAIT THAT LONG. But yup, mwahaha, internet friends who have actually met in real life…few have that honor…
      Yup, I’m one of those desperately cruel human beings you’re talkin’ about. SHH you can’t tell anyone.

      You’re very welcome! *hands you bouquet of roses* *throws more confetti* *plays BB theme song*

      Hehehe. I knew that you’d at least realize that I was ME when I told you at Nats…but I couldn’t wait THAT long, could I?? 😀 🙂

      I think the dancer4Him part was because she liked ballet and dancing for God’s glory, and she also loved the number combo 557 so she put that on the end. As for the 5 in my username? It’s just a random number I like. XD XD

      And yay I love long comments too!! *highfives* 🙂

        Thank you, *accepts medal* I’m trying to find somewhere to use the word ‘queer’. 😀
        I can’t wait that long either!!! NOT SIX MONTHS!!!! True, true. Few do have that honor. 😀 I won’t tell anyone…. well, I might. 😀
        I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE BB THEME SONG!!!! Hey, thanks for the roses! My middle name is Rose! 😀 What’s your middle name anyways?
        Now THAT would’ve cost you your HEAD. I thought you were CRUEL to wait about five months, but A YEAR?! That is so MEAN! I’m glad you gave me that clue. 😀 😀 😀 🙂
        Oh. So… it’s just like a number combo? Rats. I was hoping for, well, something more… mysterious. Bera-Bera would agree, would he not? I liked the title. 😀 It reminds me of a DOTM post…..
        That’s it? It doesn’t have a significant meaning? *sobs* I was hoping it’d be better than just a random number. *sigh* oh well… RBB5 does have a nice ring to it (can you imagine saying your username is RBB3? :D)
        *highfives you back*
        Long comments are the BEST! (and I typed a super long one earlier this morning right before going to an intensive 6 hour long ASL – American Sign Language- class while cooking French toast, but I kinda sorta accidently hit the back button and deleted the whole thing. I was pretty mad at myself)

        …I will live up to your plea to not go and try to find your first inside photos. Although I have already seen them. 😀 😀 But I’m sure they’re at least better than Prank Wars episode 1…

        How queer you are to be trying to find a place to use the word queer! XD AND WHAT. *checks calendar* *begins countdown to six months*
        *claps hand over your mouth* SHH. YOU MUST NOT BLOW MY COVER.
        Yass the BB theme song!! *plays it over and over again* *hands you more roses* I LOVE the middle name Rose! Not sure if my parents want me to say my middle name here, but I might tell you through email. 🙂
        HAHAHAHA!! OFF WITH MY HEAD! (well that was violent) I’m glad too. 🙂

        Yep, it’s just a number combo. XD

        WHAT no you have to make French toast again and send me some through cyberspace. And really? Haha, that's funny. (Now I wanna make french toast even more…even though I'm a horrible cook as well. XD ) I do enjoy getting my hands dirty with kitchen work, though! Fun kitchen work, mind you. Not like sweeping the floor…

        YES! Mediocre is such a great word. Let’s see who can come up with the best word! (no using a dictionary or the internet… mwhahaha.) So far, I have mediocre and atrocious so far, and you have queer. 😀 #wordwar
        NO! NEVER! I am SO terrible at cooking. Do you really want something to laugh at? Well, how about one of the worst possible cooking escapades in the history of the UNIVERSE?!!!! (reply quickly with a yes so that I can tell you)
        How is ANY kitchen work fun?!?! Sweeping is the only POSSIBLE fun kitchen work. Everytime I start sweeping (okay, fine, almost every time) I think of this little poem that my mom read to me when I was little (yes, this next part is from memory and I am not trying to plagiarize, I just didn’t memorize the author):
        When young Melissa sweeps a room,
        I vow she dances with the broom.

        She curtsies in a corner brightly
        And leads her partner forth politely

        Then up and down in jigs and reels
        With gold dust flying at her heels
        They caper

        With a whirl or two,
        they make the wainscot shine like new

        And it keeps going, but I’ve forgotten the next part. 😀
        NOVEL-LENGTH!! I ♥ that – brilliant! Seriously, I have a record for lots of comments. I think the longest comment conversation I’ve ever had with someone is the 300+ comment one with Madison of DWOD on her chat page before her server switch. 🙂
        Hey, we should try to get like, 500 on here by nats!!! Then we can tell everyone we had a 500 comment conversation with the other person!!! XD

        YES! That sounds like a FANTABULOUS idea! 🙂 🙂 😀
        Alrighty… ready for the narrative?

        Well, I was having some people over on Sunday (this story takes place on a nice Saturday) and so I decided to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch. Surely that is not so hard, right? I’d done it before, so I was sure I could do something as simple as cookies. My little brother asked to help, and so I generously agreed. Of course, I forgot (for the hundredth time) that I was supposed to set the butter out to soften… so I brilliantly set it on the back burner of the stove and preheated the oven (which was quite impressive, because another thing I always forget to do is preheat the oven… not that it makes a difference). I then was trying to find the rest of the ingredients while my younger-than-school-age brother is cracking eggs (note to self: do not let brothers crack eggs). He held out one and said, “This one’s too hard, I can’t crack it.” Assuming that it was a hard egg to crack, I reached out with my left hand (I’m right handed, btw – I had to use my left hand because I was holding something else in my right hand) and grabbed the egg with a little more force than usual because I was somewhat frustrated that we were out of sugar. I grab the egg, slam it against the edge of the bowl and…. yes, the egg cracked. But it did not only crack, it splattered, splooshed (eggs splooshing? yes, actually) and smushed all over my hand, the counter, and the floor (and an unassuming nutcracker leftover from Christmas. oops.). I sighed and tossed the rest of the egg in the trash can before instructed my brother to go get some isopropyl alcohol to disinfect the floor and counter. While I’m wiping up the spilled egg, he returns with two bottles: a white unlabeled bottle, and a brown bottle labeled ‘Hydrogen Peroxide’. I asked what the white bottle is, and he doesn’t know. The problem is, it could be alcohol, witch hazel, or vinegar. Sigh. I took the brown bottle and start disinfecting the floor when all of a sudden…. I remembered the butter. I hopped up, slammed the brown bottle on the counter – in my haste I had forgotten to put the lid on, so the two forces made hydrogen peroxide spray everywhere – and grab the butter gingerly. It’s half melted by this time, so I carefully set it on the counter while I begin wiping up the spilled HP. In the process, I didn’t see the cup of water on the counter and ended up knocking that over too. My little brother then walked in and saw the butter sitting on the counter. He curiously picked it up and squeezed it, and being the observant brother that he is, inquired, “Why’s the butter so squishy?” I then replied, “DON’T SQUISH THE BUTTER!” He thought that was funny. I did not. Anyways, I got the cookies in the oven (oh, and went over to the neighbor to borrow some sugar) and then realized that the next morning was Sunday, and cooking breakfast was my duty. So, I tried to save time (not a good idea) and used one bowl to make baked oatmeal. Of course, I forgot to separate the dry and wet ingredients so I ended up with the lumpy mound of… whatever that was, which I promptly poured into the dish (more like plopped it in). And this entire time, my LOVING older sister is laughing her head off hysterically.
        It doesn’t help that during that escapade, I was also trying to clean my room (okay, yes, cleaning my room is unrelated to the most horrid cooking escapade on earth, but it just adds to the story). I was about to go work on my room after straightening up the rest of the house, making cookies (and epically failing), and ruining breakfast, and clearing off the kitchen counter (note: I didn’t wash the dishes) when all of a sudden I was paged to the kitchen. (really, I was just called, but being paged sounds more professional)
        My mother asked me to get the rice pot lid from –
        INTERRUPTION: At this point, a 19-month-old just passed the computer from the direction of my bedroom holding three mismatched socks… that belong to me…
        (continuing) – the pots and pans cabinet, so I kneeled down and handed it up to her. Taking the lid with one hand and holding the pot full of rice and water, she turned and took a step toward the counter…. right as I stood up, hit either her arm or the pot and was showered with rice and water. Down my sweater, all over my head….
        If this was about anyone else, I would’ve laughed. Right then though, I nearly cried. The kitchen floor was carpeted in rice, accompanied by a large pond-like puddle of water. And as we continued to apologize to one another, I wiped up the rice and water, stood up WITHOUT RUNNING INTO A RICE POT and continued to my bedroom. Ta.da.
        THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO EXAGGERATION WHATSOEVER.

        Congratulations on actually reading this entire thing. I applaud thee for your perseverance!

        I think I’ll do that tonight (the whole bugging the older sister thing by singing… or maybe I should just hum in the shower. That tends to annoy her)
        Probably not, but you were the first to use it on this post *claps for you*

        That would be fun to get to 500! Though I have to say, this was probably the longest comment I’ve ever written/typed.

        What is this with me and hashtags. XD
        Ooh, cool! Okay. Jumping and gliding and spinning and all…sounds awesome! But…rollerskating!!!! Okay, okay. I propose a truce between the two kingdoms. 🙂
        NOOOOO. But I’ve been working on my story too…3,578 now! *screams*
        Yes!! I totally want to try stuffie leggings sometime! I tried making a slouchy beanie out of a sock a few days ago on Toto…pretty much the only sewing thing I succeeded at. XD
        Oh, interesting! I never heard of Rend Collective before! I wanna check that out now… 🙂
        Okay! *shakes hands* Deal!

        IKR?!?!?
        IT IS awesome. I will NOT settle for a true. Rollerblading is the ultimate BEST and I will not back down on that. Hmm… gotta go find my sister and have her record me skating. 😀 *walks outside* *burns* *walks back inside* nevermind about that… hehe. Let’s just say I’ll do it later. 😀 😀 #procrastinator
        YESSSS! I finished it, but now I’m revising. I’ll schedule it for 12 EST tomorrow. 🙂
        They’re SUPER easy and fun, too! 🙂 Now THAT is cool. 🙂 XD Sounds a lot like me…

        Okay, then. *sniffs and flips hair* WAR HAS BEGUN. XD And hahaha, that sounds absolutely EXACTLY like something I would do. #procrastinatorfriend
        YAY!!! *claps for you* Okay, sounds great! I think I’ll be posting mine tomorrow 12 EST as well. Maybe a little later if I don’t get it done by then. 🙂 4,285 now! Almost done! *squeals*
        Oh, really? Okay! I made Toto matching pants with his shirt today…now he looks like a little elf. XD My sister wanted to make legging shorts so she cut off the bottom part of her leggings, too…I just found that scrap of cloth in the bag…bring on the stuffed animal leggings. *cheers* Hehe. 😀 :De

        Hello YES!! I am the world’s worst procrastinator. XD
        I love yours too! It was just so awesome, and I like the setting you placed your story in. 🙂
        Hahahaha!! Aww, that’s so cute!! XD *dies laughing* Elfie, elfie, elfie…*cue the singing*
        And ha. Let’s just say I’m not going to cheer anymore. Do you want to hear about my worst sewing failure in the history of the world? Let’s just assume you said yes. Well…it’s not that bad…Baby’s my model BTW…except that I knotted the thread wrong so I ended up stitching only the top part of the cloth until I realized what I was doing. Then I started over, reknotted it, but APPARENTLY something was wrong again because it kept getting tangled and I could NEVER pull the thread through. And then as I was stressing over how tight I should make it, I accidently sewed Baby’s LEG along with the cloth (since I had the leggings on him while I was sewing!!) So I had to snip that…and it fell apart again. So I started over again. And then I thought I had done it perfect when I finished sewing. I inverted it, my stitches didn’t burst (*cheers*) and it looked absolutely perfect! And then I realized that I couldn’t even put it on him because my top seam had been way too…top. It didn’t FIT. And I wasted all that good cloth *wails* Oh well…
        That may or may not have been an exaggeration. XD

        Thanks! Yours was ornately incredible. 🙂
        Elfie! Yes! 🙂 You should name one of your stuffed animals Elfie…. or have you already?
        BTW, do you have any dolls? I’ve never seen them on here before. Hmm..
        XD XD XD I was so cracking up during that entire thing! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 That. was. AWESOME! Poor Baby, though. How are the legs?! I ruined that one pair of shorts because I accidently hemmed both sides and made them so tight I couldn’t get them past the dolls’ knees. XD

        Yes, me too!! Hmm, what people? I don’t know of any people who would DARE do that…well, well. XD
        Aww, thanks! I ❤ the word ornate.
        ELFIE!!!!! 😀 😀 No, I haven't named any of my stuffed animals Elfie, but it's such a cute name!! And it's so perfect for Toto…xD
        Yes, in fact, I have three dolls: Lulu, Kenzie, and Brookie! Not your typical dolls, they're cloth dolls my sister sewed for me. 🙂 Dolls nevertheless, I guess! I haven't featured Lulu, yet, but Kenzie and Brookie were in "Little Friends" and a couple other posts, too.
        XD XD XD ughhhh. Just ughhh. Seriously. Baby's okay, I guess. The thing I like about stuffed animal blogging over doll blogging is that stuffies are so much more hardy. XD You have to worry about a doll's hair, scratches…with little balls of fur you hardly have to do anything. 😀 Stuffed animals are less versatile, though. 😦 And I'm trying to make a stuffie room right now but since they're all of different sizes I have no idea what to do. *cue the agonized screaming* But I'm seriously having a ton of fun. Have you ever tried making a dolly bookshelf out of a tape cassette holder? Don’t tell anyone but I pooled a bunch of those. nobody was using them anyways. XD
        Yes in fact I did!!

        Awww, you do? What’s her actual name? I called Toto “Elfie” the other day and you’ll never know how close I came to having an entire tower of legos thrown at my head. xP
        You remember now! 😀 Brookie and I are both relatively photogenic, so Rebekah uses us a lot. 🙂 My sis doesn’t mind…but I’d totally rather be behind the camera than in front of it. Who’s the most photogenic of your dolls? I’m going to beg Rebekah to take me to Nats so I can meet you. 😀
        Yes, quite true! And hahahaha! I literally fall over secretly laughing when I see her trying to build stuff for us…I wish AG products weren’t so expensive. $150 for Maryellen’s Food And Fridge Set??? Hmm…maybe someday… XD How exciting! I wanna see your doll room now…
        You should totally tryyyy!!! That’s about the only thing that actually looks REAL *falls over laughing again*

        Why doesn’t Toto like the name Elfie? It’s adorable!
        Of course I do! That would be fantastic if I got to meet you!! Hmm… Julie and Katie are pretty photogenic.
        XD It’s probably the same for my dolls and everything… There’s a sneak peek picture coming out tomorrow because of a little someone who kept getting into my doll room. Yes, AG is super expensive. *sigh* True, true. Maybe someday.
        Eh. finding the supplies and time would be the biggest issue… but it would be fun!!! XD
        Thanks! It went super well (except that *ahem* we were supposed to be picking up pinecones… and it turned into a pinecone war. I have veteran scars on my forehead, due to an awfully aimed pinecone from my best friend’s brother)

        Aww, cool name! 🙂 🙂 And haha, yeah.
        I honestly don’t know why Toto doesn’t like the name Elfie! All I do know is that I found a lot of deconstructed lego towers in Kenzie and Brookie’s room today…hmm…
        Yay! It would be quite exciting…I took Kenzie to Texas once and we had a blast. 🙂 And ahh, yes, I remember your photo shoots of those two now! Especially Julie – she’s gorgeous! I sometimes wish my stuffies had hair so I could style it… 😦
        XD I doubt it…anyways. I saw the sneakpeek – your little sis is so cute!!! And I figured out a solution for all my stuffed animal room problems! Especially with so many of them…there had to be one soon. XD Do you want to hear it? My sister thought of it. It’s not as dramatic as I’m making it sound…but comment yes if you do want to hear about it anyways! 😀
        AG is SO expensive. *dies* Yes, maybe someday…what’s one super cute doll thing you want right now?

        XDDDD. Yeah. By the way, did you find out WordPress stopped making “XD” into an emoji? *gasps* How rude! I always liked that emoji…oh well…
        Oh, cool! No, it wasn’t BB-related, I went to Texas a couple months ago for my older sister’s senior recital. 🙂 And true! Except that I’m not much of a hairstyler, I can’t even do a French braid. 😛
        Well, the solution is…*drumrolls*…boxes! (I know that sounded weird). Instead of clearing out space for a doll room (hint: very hard to find space with good lighting if you have more than ten…) or using a shelf (what I had been planning originally, but possibly even harder to find…), I’ll just use big boxes for rooms! For example, I’ll take one box, furnish it, and boom! it becomes a bedroom. well, it’s not quite as easy as that, but you get the idea. XD And then I’ll still keep them separate boxes, but I’ll put them together in a dollhouse format. That way, I don’t need to stress over good lighting (I can just detach a box and carry it outside or where there’s nice lighting), or space! (I can keep the boxes in separate places or else keep it in the deserted areas of our basement). Neat idea, no?
        Nanea is SO cute! She would fit so well in your collection! I hope you get to buy her when she comes out. 😀 😀

        No kidding, I did. 😀 I dreamed that we met at some summer camp and I didn’t know it was you (well, surprise surprise, I haven’t seen you in three years.) and the camp counselors got mad because I couldn’t recognize you because there were like, 20 girls who all looked like you. It was frustrating. And then my dream changed and I think we were at a super tiny house that was for your… stuffed animals? Or was it actually someone’s house? I can’t remember. Anyways, I’m dying to see you this fall! Do you think you’d be allowed to Skype?
        Yes, beg her to! Speaking of which, are you on ST anymore? There’s an Elizabeth on there and I know it’s someone in your family (because it’s a stuffed animal that I recognize mwahahaha) but wasn’t sure if it was her or you. So, who was it? YES! A HAIRSTLYING COMPETITION!
