Hey, everybody! Madi here! How is everyone? Sorry I’ve been a little inactive – Yes, we travelled to Texas! We’re going back to Florida very soon, and I just wanted to let you girls know I didn’t drop of the face of the earth! LOL! As soon as I get to Florida, I will reply and answer all of your questions from your comments. :-)

I spent 4 nights at my BFF’s house, and it was so fun, from getting completely muddy to trying to swim in a freezing pool (we jumped in, sort of, and crawled right back out! XD) to watching movies. (From The Croods, Penguins of Madagascar, and the Teen Beach Movie to Home Alone 3, Numerous episodes of K.C. Undercover, Cinderella 2015(We saw it at the movies with the new FROZEN FEVER SHORT!!!)(Again, the parentheses in a parentheses!) and Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London! We actually watched that movie 2 times during the sleepovers. It was the last movie we watched – this morning, actually, before I left.

We played with their puppies and their squirrel, made a purse (sort of XD) and wrote a classified story – I can’t give away what its about, or post it on here. Or any where. It’s classified. ;) It was so good – we’re working on a sequel for it now and will continue it when I’m in Texas next. :-).

We had fun every single moment – even when we did school together! I brought my school so I could do it when they did theirs (we’re both home-schooled) and it was just, so fun. My time with them was amazing, and I never want to forget it.

Before going to my BFF’s house, I had an appointment and got pretty good reports! Last time, they found inflammation in my eye and prescribed eye drops. Now, my eye is doing much better but it’s developed a reaction to the drops, so we tapered off quickly and found a closer Ophthalmologist (eye doctor?) in Florida that can monitor me. :-)

I didn’t take any pictures of Ellie at my BFF’s house (sorry!), but I did manage to get a pic of her here.

Wait, what? Who’s Ellie, you may ask? I didn’t get… ANOTHER DOLL, DID I?!


Then who’s Ellie?

Well, I’ve been thinking. Joy doesn’t really suit her. I only named her that because I really liked the name Joy and couldn’t wait for another doll to name her that.

But lately, I’ve been realizing Joy isn’t really right for her. Plus, it doesn’t have a nickname! :o :'( JoJo, JJ, or Joyie (?) didn’t seem right to me for nicknames.

Plus, she was really screaming for a name that ended with the “ee” sound.

Maisie was PERFECT for her, but I wanted it to be original since Among The Dolls has already used that name. I wanted something… different.

With the help of my two BFF’s, we’ve come up with a new name for her.


So her full name is now Ellie Ivy Ling! The Joy was been booted out completely. I didn’t want her to have 2 middle names. :P So, Ellie is now totally happy with her new name! I have to change the Hang on to Hope cast poster with her new name soon.

Well, that’s about all for my life! I’ll try to post when I get back to Florida!
(I. Hate. That. Place. -__-)

Lovingly and happily yours,
