Texas Trip Part 3 – Coming Back

This post has the least pictures of all of them LOL.

IMG_9277After I came home from my doctors appointment (good reports!) I found THIS in an old drawer we never packed.

My father got a letter from the PRESIDENT.

IMG_9278CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I freaked out and texted my BFF’s nearly screaming with excitement. President Bush ‘wrote’ a letter to my father… this goes down in Lorfing family history. WOW WOW WOW! This is NOT a joke, haux, or a fake. This is real, and I was so beyond amazed at it!

IMG_9280After that I went for a double sleepover at my BFF’s house. Here is Emelie with all her friends before we left to go back to Florida.

We watched the new Annie! It was soooooooooooo good!

IMG_9283 IMG_9284 IMG_9285 IMG_9286 IMG_9287Numerousย photos of the Sam Houston statue as we drove to Houston to see a few of our relatives and visit before we left.

IMG_9294At the hotel’s (The non-fancy one we stayed at in Houston :p) they had these adorable mini boxes of cereal at the breakfast. So what did I do?! Grab some for my dolls of course! I would have grabbed one of all of them but my dad said I could only get 3. -__-

IMG_9295Here is Emelie holding them for size comparison. They’re perfect for AG’s!

IMG_9300I got this trinket just outside of Florida. It’s really cool, and has this water stuff inside with a floating dolphin. It has a clip on the top that a photo can attach in to. I also got two T-shirts that say ‘FLORIDA’ on them.

IMG_9323And now I am back!

I have a new photo story series in the planning/makings…and an AGSM, too! BTW, sneak peek, this summer I am going to do one of a girl (one of my dolls – probably #56, when I get her. In the AGSM she will play a girl named Providence.) who lives near the beach and has to move. (Inspiration goes to Sunny! Thank you Sunny for your awesome ideas!)

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos from my Texas trip! Texas will always be my home, and I hope to return and visit again soon.

Thanks for reading. Your comments have been so sweet and touching, and knowing that you’re praying for me helps a LOT. My homesickness may never go away. I may never come to love Florida as some Floridians.

But I know this is for sure – with God on my side, I can do ANYTHING.

And especially with all you awesome friends praying, commenting, and just plain being there for me.

Y’ALL ROCK!

    Wow! Impressive. And you never knew this? When did the President send it to your dad? (obviously when he was still president :P) And we have those mini cereal boxes, too. They are good-sized for small food play, but a little big for dolls… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I don’t know. It said 1991-92, though, so I’m guessing then. ๐Ÿ™‚
      That’s cool you have those too! They’re a little ‘thick’, but they work for my dolls (they just like the food lol XD)

        That makes sense. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I discovered that my brothers received a certificate, but not a letter. Food is always yummy, although my dolls don’t exactly like Frosted Flakes. Too sugary for breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Oh cool ๐Ÿ™‚
          LOL! I’m sensitive to what I eat for breakfast. If I eat an apple early in the morning, with nothing else on my stomach, I will throw up. But if I eat it later in the day, like for later breakfast with something else, I’m just fine… ๐Ÿ˜›

            That’s strange! ๐Ÿ˜€ What’s also strange is that I like to eat carrots just before I go to sleep. Like, in bed I’m eating carrots. ๐Ÿ˜›

    First, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MENTIONING ME!!!!! Madison, you are awesome!! ๐Ÿ˜€ And also you are very welcome!!
    And I can NOT wait for the AGSM! #56 is gonna be great in that role. Providence sounds like a good name too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Also, these pictures were great, and that is SO cool your dad got a letter from the President!!

      You are totally welcome Sunny!!! You came up with the idea so of course you should be mentioned ! ๐Ÿ˜€ :D: D you are even more awesome Sunny! I love you! <3
      Me neither! As soon as we head to the beach this summer, it's in the works! I can imagine her curly blonde hair blowing in the wind, as a silhouette against the sun... Sorry I'm raving about it again! XD Thanks, I'm memorizing the state capitals and on of them was Providence, Rhode Island and I thought the name was sooooooooo pretty. Plus, it literally means 'the protective care of God', which I think works really well with the AGSM because Providence will learn that God is taking care of her, no matter where she is.

      Thanks so much! And yeah, I literally was bouncing off the walls with a "UEREKA!!!!!!" Tone of voice. It was kinda crazy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Haha, that's okay, it's pretty exciting!!! XD
        I agree, it really is a pretty name. And oh my gosh, that is sooo perfect!
        Hahaha!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Yes – when I made my Back To School AGSM, total, with my dolls and their dolls, we had 12 dollars on the set! SO MANY DOLLS!
      Aw, thank you so much Kathleen! You are so sweet! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks again, Kathleen. You’re such an amazing friend. <3

      P.S. Eek, yes! That is amazing! Ok, I will! ๐Ÿ˜€

        Welcome! *tips cowboy hat with fingers*

        Aaah! Yes that is! Though you should try having to get 15 dolls ready for family photos! It’s so crazy! It helps that the H4H only have the clothes they came in and one or two skirts we made them, I guess, cause then I just have to do their hair. I love dolls!

        You’re welcome. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Oh, thanks a ton. ๐Ÿ™‚ Honestly I just try to live life the way He would want me to. Except for the occassional (read: every day) shouting match with my brother. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Kathleen
        P.S. Yay! I hope they decide today….. Or maybe tomorrow. I don’t know, but if they do, I’ll definitly tell you first. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Oh, wow! Haha! That must be fun! Oh my gosh I love doing doll hair XD You can say that again – dolls rock! ^_^

          YW! And haha… sounds like life with my little brother. He always walks into my room since there is no door, RIGHT WHEN I AM WORKING ON IMPORTANT DWOD AND AGSM STUFF, and annoys me to no end! Haha. But it’s OK though. ๐Ÿ˜›

          P.S. Hopefully! OK, thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope they say yes! (have my fingers (and my toes)(yes you just saw a parentheses in a parentheses) crossed! ^_^)

            ๐Ÿ™‚ YES DOLL HAIR IS SO FUN TO PLAY WITH! AND YES I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE DOLLS

    Well, I just found a love for a American girl doll, and now I cant let go of the thought of holding her in my arms. I was looking around the American girl shop online this morning, and I saw the doll of my dreams that I never really paid any attention to for a very long time, number 21! She is sooo adorable! I just love her curly honey blonde hair in those cute pigtails! I am hoping I will get her one day.

      #21 is REALLY cute! I hope you get her too – maybe ask for her for your birthday or Christmas. And you can always follow these tips for saving up to buy her yourself, too. ๐Ÿ˜€
