After church today, Pine Valley Girls Club went on an Easter egg hunt. Not only did they find lots of Easter Eggs but they also found some adorable chicks! Happy Easter!!!

From Shelby-Grace: Kit and Mai are so excited! Next week they’re going on a vacation, on which they get to visit the American Girl store! Kit and Mai are packing their clothes and things for their trip. “And I’ve got to bring this,” says Mai. “And I have to bring this,” says Kit. “No, there isn’t enough room for that,” says Mai. I hope they can work out their packing issues! The bag is the now-retired Starry Doll Carrier for girls.

From Madelon – Emily celebrates Easter in her new dress.

From Caroline – I found this adorable photo of when I first got Caroline.

From Bethany – I recently discovered how to put lipstick on my dolls. Don’t worry; it’s not real lipstick. Here’s how to do it: Take a strip of scotch tape and put it over your doll’s mouth. Using a permanent marker, trace your doll’s lips. Peel the tape off and stick it to something light-colored, so that you can see the lines you made. Color in the outline. Cut out the pair of lips you colored and carefully stick it onto your doll’s lips again. Try it; no dolls were injured or colored on in my experimentation.

Barbie is using her locker to keep her books and plush rabbit. Barbie hopes everyone enjoys the long weekeend and Easter. From Megan_DollFanInAfrica

From Janet – Happy Easter! This week my mother made some T-shirts and a polka dot skirt and a black skirt, and I made a light blue plaid skirt.

From Kylie – Picnic Day
