Cecile’s Pool Party Birthday!

*These events happened yesterday*

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cร‰CILE!” Came a chorus of giggly dolls as I snapped the picture. “Can we swim now, mom?” the birthday girl asked. I checked the picture real quick. “Yes! Have fun!”


IMG_4962Josie and Jaz were a little weary of the big pool, (well, it was big to them ๐Ÿ˜‰ .) and decided to just to “sun-tan in the shade.”

IMG_4964But Ellie and Emelie decided to wade in the shallow end.

IMG_4963“The water is so cold!” Emelie laughed. “It feels good when it’s cold,” Ellie added, splashing around a bit.

IMG_4965But Cรฉcile and Molly liked diving in the deep end.

“Ready, Molls?”

“The real question is, are you?”

IMG_4966“You bet I am.”

“Three!” Molly shouted.

“Two!” Cรฉcile added.

“ONE!!!” They yelled together.

IMG_4967Then they dove into the crystal clear water.


IMG_4969After an hour or so of swimming, the girls settled down to some cupcakes and pink lemonade. (Jaz and Josie had muffins).

IMG_4971IMG_4972IMG_4973After they ate, Molly dragged out a bag of GIFTS!

IMG_4974There was a beautiful felt flower clip from Emelie! (go to AmericanGirlFan.com for the tutorial on how to make one.)

IMG_4976There was also a green one from Josefina!

IMG_4977Jasmine gave Cรฉcile her favorite turquoise-pearl beaded necklace.

IMG_4978And Ellie gave her decorative “sea-shells”.

IMG_4979And last but certainly not least, Molly gave Cรฉcile a beautiful braided felt bracelet!

IMG_4980Here is the birthday girl with all her birthday goodies!

After some more playtime in the sun and pool, the girls came in.

IMG_4981Molly, Josefina, and Jasmine changed into some different clothes.

IMG_4989But Ellie and Emelie stayed in theirs, because only their feet got wet. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_4991“Hey guys!” Cรฉcile came in with a bag of supplies. “The party’s not over yet…”

IMG_4992“What’s in here…”


With that, every single girl shrieked (even Molly, and she’s not that much of a girly girl) because all the DWOD dolls love doing hair.

IMG_4994So they stationed themselves, with three girls doing hair, and three girls getting their hair done.

IMG_4995Jasmine is re-curling Cรฉcile’s hair.

IMG_4996Josie is brushing through Emelie’s hair.

IMG_4997And Molly is blow-drying Ellie’s hair to make it messier. “He he he. This is getting funner already.”

IMG_4998Ellie was NOT a fan of the messy look, so Molly quickly decided to straighten out her hair. ๐Ÿ˜‰

IMG_5004Here is Ellie’s hairstyle…

IMG_5003Here is Emelie’s hairstyle…

IMG_5005Here is the birthday girl’s hairstyle! Isn’t she gorgeous? ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy birthday CรฉCรฉ.

IMG_5007Jasmine declared her hair already to be perfect and didn’t want anyone messing it up, but she wanted pictures of it taken anyways.


IMG_5010Here is Josie’s hairstyle.

IMG_5011And last but certainly not least, Molly’s hairstyle! I made her take her hair down for her photo (these are my doll’s new profile pictures, and I wanted all of their hair down).

IMG_5012But at soon as it was taken, she immediately braided it. Braids are her favorite hairstyle, and she keeps her hair in them to preserve her hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_5014After that, a few girls pulled out some cards while the rest went to “Grab a surprise.”

IMG_5015“I hope I win,” Ellie said as Josefina opened the cards.

IMG_5016None of them could shuffle cards, so they just dumped them on the floor and shuffled them that way. XD

IMG_5017Ellie’s got a few pairs already…


“I WIN!!!! MWAHAAAAA!!!!!” All the cards were thrown in the air in celebration.

Hurray, Ellie. ๐Ÿ˜‰

IMG_5019“We’re back!” Molly said. The girls had blankets, but they ended up being too small. Some bigger blankets were needed to build…

IMG_5021A FORT!!!!

IMG_5022The girls said it was very comfy in the fort. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_5023Then they all watched a movie in their forts before sleeping! ^_^

    Oooh I’m so jealous of your pool! (Though technically we would probably only be able to use a pool a few days a year)
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CECILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell her my girls all say happy birthday as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I haven’t made a fort like that in forever….My mom’s taking a nap, and my siblings are out with my dad.. Yep, OK, I’m making a fort. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I miss being a little kid.

      Hehe! I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ . Do you ever go to the beach? (It’s better than a swimming pool in my opinion! The waves, the sand, the fresh salty air while eating popsicles – just me? XD.)
      Cรฉcile says thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Ahh, forts are really fun! I made one a few weeks ago with my brother… right after that we watched CODY BANKS 2! MWAHAHAAAA!!!! *fangirls and obsesses over the movie again* Ooops, went a little crazy there. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      (tip for making forts – uses string to attach blanket to blanket! It works!)

        Not in a long time! We don’t really live near the beach right now — we haven’t in 7 years. I do miss it,, but the one near our house before we moved here was super rocky and had a lot of cliffs, so we’d kinda go, but it would be rainy or cold or rocky.
        ๐Ÿ˜€ Tell her she’s welcome!
        MWAHAHAHA! I never watched that! And yes I’m a complete and utter fangirl, so…….anything related to Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl (OK, you should totally read this. The first few books start out a bit hard to relate but by the 3rd book you’ll be obsessed. It does say a bad word a few times, but it’s one that I’m positive you know, and it isn’t as bad as some others.) the Book Thief, books, etc. Man, just books in general.
        Oh thanks! Ok! I always used to tape fleece blankets to other fleece blankets — it didn’t work very well!

    Wow I didn’t know you had an indoor pool! That is so cool! My friend who lives across the street has a pool maybe I could make a doll stopmotion there. But I have a question how did you get your dolls feet in the pool? Emilie and Ellie were actually in the pool. Is it okay to get your dolls a little wet?

      Well, we do! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I put my dolls feet in the pool – as long as water doesn’t get into their eyes, they’re usually OK. It depends on how protective you are of your dolls. For me, it’s OK to get them a little wet (as long as it’s not too much on their cloth body and DEFINITELY not on their face or hair) as long as I dry them off good soon afterwards. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy belated birthday, Cecile! What better way to spend a birthday in Florida than in a pool? I would have been so nervous putting my dolls right on the edge of a pool like you did in the sixth and seventh pictures! You’re pool looks awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not nearly as jealous of it as Kathleen is, because my neighbors have a pool that they let us use whenever we want. We went swimming for the first time this summer on Saturday!

    I used to love building forts! I wish my brother would build one with me, but no, he has much more important things to do (aka playing video games).

      Cรฉcile says thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha, yeah, I was a little afraid they would fall in! But they didn’t, so that was good. XD. And thanks! We just bought some floatie-thingies for it and I love just lying on the floatie, soaking up the sun (I never get sunburnt or get too much sun because we have a lanai) in the pool! Ahhh…hey mom, when can I go swimming again? XD
      That sounds fun! ^_^ At your neighbors’ pool?

      Lol… my brother used to be obsessed with Mario (on the Wii.) He finally decided to break the addiction, and only plays the Wii about once a week. ๐Ÿ™‚ You could probably build a fort by yourself if you wanted…
