*These events happened yesterday*
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY CÉCILE!” 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!”
Josie and Jaz were a little weary of the big pool, (well, it was big to them ;) .) and decided to just to “sun-tan in the shade.”
But Ellie and Emelie decided to wade in the shallow end.
“The water is so cold!” Emelie laughed. “It feels good when it’s cold,” Ellie added, splashing around a bit.
But Cécile and Molly liked diving in the deep end.
“The real question is, are you?”
“You bet I am.”
“Three!” Molly shouted.
“Two!” Cécile added.
“ONE!!!” They yelled together.
Then they dove into the crystal clear water.
After an hour or so of swimming, the girls settled down to some cupcakes and pink lemonade. (Jaz and Josie had muffins).
After they ate, Molly dragged out a bag of GIFTS!
There was a beautiful felt flower clip from Emelie! (go to AmericanGirlFan.com for the tutorial on how to make one.)
There was also a green one from Josefina!
Jasmine gave Cécile her favorite turquoise-pearl beaded necklace.
And Ellie gave her decorative “sea-shells”.
And last but certainly not least, Molly gave Cécile a beautiful braided felt bracelet!
Here is the birthday girl with all her birthday goodies!
After some more playtime in the sun and pool, the girls came in.
Molly, Josefina, and Jasmine changed into some different clothes.
But Ellie and Emelie stayed in theirs, because only their feet got wet. :-)
“Hey guys!” Cécile came in with a bag of supplies. “The party’s not over yet…”
“What’s in here…”
“MWAHAHAAA! HAIR SUPPLIES!”
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.
So they stationed themselves, with three girls doing hair, and three girls getting their hair done.
Jasmine is re-curling Cécile’s hair.
Josie is brushing through Emelie’s hair.
And Molly is blow-drying Ellie’s hair to make it messier. “He he he. This is getting funner already.”
Ellie was NOT a fan of the messy look, so Molly quickly decided to straighten out her hair. ;)
Here is Ellie’s hairstyle…
Here is Emelie’s hairstyle…
Here is the birthday girl’s hairstyle! Isn’t she gorgeous? :-) Happy birthday CéCé.
Jasmine declared her hair already to be perfect and didn’t want anyone messing it up, but she wanted pictures of it taken anyways.
Here is Josie’s hairstyle.
And 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).
But 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. :-)
After that, a few girls pulled out some cards while the rest went to “Grab a surprise.”
“I hope I win,” Ellie said as Josefina opened the cards.
None of them could shuffle cards, so they just dumped them on the floor and shuffled them that way. XD
Ellie’s got a few pairs already…
“I WIN!!!! MWAHAAAAA!!!!!” All the cards were thrown in the air in celebration.
Hurray, Ellie. ;)
“We’re back!” Molly said. The girls had blankets, but they ended up being too small. Some bigger blankets were needed to build…
The girls said it was very comfy in the fort. :-)
Then they all watched a movie in their forts before sleeping! ^_^
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CÉCILE!
