HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOY! This is her birthday party!

IMG_8321Josefina kept Joy distracted in another room by talking to her and hanging out with her.

IMG_8322All of the sudden, she heard a special whistle from the other room. “Hey, I want to show you something!” Josefina quickly said, leading Joy towards the room.

IMG_8323“What on earth–” Joy gasped when she stepped in.

IMG_8324“HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOY!” Came the chorus of giggling girls. It was a classic scene of the surprise party!

IMG_8325“You sit down right there, birthday girl!” Josefina demanded, sitting her bestie down on a gorgeous sparkly birthday throne. “We are going to have some fun!”

Joy smiled, amazed that her friend would do all this for her!

IMG_8326“We didn’t have a lot of just one type of food, so we’re all eating something a little different. Here’s a cupcake for you!” Explained, offering Joy a cupcake.

IMG_8327Molly and Jasmine had pizza – the birthday girl and her BFF has cupcakes – Cécile had a pretzel – and Emelie had an orange.

IMG_8328The hungry girls devoured the food quickly!

IMG_8329Emelie grabbed the trash and plates.

IMG_8330“Now it’s time for presents!” Emelie declared as CéCé left the room to get them. “Oh my, you girls are so sweet!” Joy exclaimed. “You really didn’t have to do this for me!”

IMG_8331“A little help here?” Came a desperate voice as Cécile stumbled in the room with an enormous stack of presents!

IMG_8332Jasmine jumped up to help her bestie, and to grab her present to Joy.

IMG_8333“Open mine first, you’re going to love it,” Jasmine told Joy, pointing to hers.

IMG_8334IMG_8335IMG_8336“What an awesome purse! THANK YOU, Jasmine! I love it!” Joy gushed. “I knew you would,” Jasmine grinned.

IMG_8337“That one’s from me,” Molly pointed to the one Joy grabbed next.

IMG_8338“Molly, I love it! I’ve always wanted to grow some flowers after watching the video of you and Madison growing the sunflowers.”

IMG_8339“Cécile, this looks interesting…”


“I knew it’s a little Christmas-y, but it said your name. It’s an ornament picture frame, like one that goes on a tree, but you can put your picture in it and just use it as a regular picture frame.” Cécile explained. “Thank you! I love it.”

IMG_8341“Oh my goodness! I KNOW WHAT THIS IS!” Joy ranted excitingly, tearing open the packaging on Emelie’s gift to her.

IMG_8342“How did you know I wanted this?!” She asked happily.

IMG_8343“I saw you gawking at it at online – I wanted to get it for you for your birthday. It looks so cool – Velvet posters rock!” Emelie smiled.

IMG_8344“Oh my gosh, Josefina, you didn’t!”

“Oh, but I did!” Josie beamed.

IMG_8345“This is SO STINKIN’ COOL!” Joy began to play around with her new iPod and plugged her earphones in for a second. “It has all my favorite songs on it! Thank you, Josefina!”

IMG_8348IMG_8349“Is this from you, Madison?” Joy asked me (I was quietly taking pictures of this event) “Mmm-hmmm,” I answered. “It’s really neat, too!”

“It’s so big…”

“I wander what it is?”

IMG_8350“Holy moly! It’s from Our Generation!”

IMG_8351“This is so cool!” Joy exclaimed.

IMG_8352All these pieces included in this set are two sea-shells, a bottle of sunscreen, and a WATER BOTTLE! I have wanted this for a really long time. It also has a cute bag to hold everything, and sunglasses!

I got this and another mini Our Generation set from my aunt back at Christmastime that I never opened. It was crammed in the back of our minivan along with yet another Our Generation set. (the one that includes the cupcakes and sleeping bag you saw with Joy and Snowy).

IMG_8354The size is just perfect for AG doll hands!

IMG_8356“Thank you, EVERYONE!” Joy exclaimed, overjoyed that her friends made her first birthday so special.

IMG_8359Josie was the first to run up and give her a hug.

IMG_8360Then all the others! It was more like a DOG PILE…

After I took the picture, i gave her a hug too ^_^

IMG_8363Joy with all her awesome friends!!
