Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I know I'm way too late about wishing everyone a merry Christmas. Sorry about that...I was just having too much fun with the new toys, I guess!
Did you guys have a good Christmas though? We sure did!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm looking forward to 2013.
I'm hoping it'll bring lots of new adventures for me and all my friends.

Anyone making any new year's resolutions?
I'd say my resolution was to lose weight (since that seems to be a pretty common one), but dolls don't seem to have that problem.

Anyway, I hope you guys have a great time celebrating tonight...and be careful if you're going out!
We're just going to have a nice quiet evening in the doll room tonight. No wild partying for me.

Happy New Year!

Finding the Perfect Tree

Hurry up, Bea! I want to pick out the perfect Christmas tree!

Hmph. I'm cold.

If you'd worn a jacket like I told you to, you wouldn't have that problem.

I choose this tree. It's by far the best one out here. I must have the best tree.

Um, Bea...? Don't you think this tree is a bit...well...

...big? We'd never be able to fit it into the house, let alone our room!

Whatever. You pick your own silly tree then.

This one looks more like our size!

Pastel, that thing is no more than a glorified twig.

Hmm. I suppose you're right.

Let's see if there's something else out here...

Will you hurry up!? I'm cold...and I'm tired...and I'm hungry. I want to go home!

Uggghh. That's it. I'm getting a fake tree.

A New Job

Hi guys!

First of all, thank you all so much for the birthday wishes.
It meant a lot to me.
My friends all surprised me with a feels pretty good to know I'm loved.
I can't wait to share the awesome present The Keeper and Scribble got for me.
I still haven't taken pictures of it yet...I know, I know...I'm way too lazy.

I'm really sorry I've been in such a funk lately.
The Keeper and Scribble finally opened their online shop and they've been working nonstop on it ever since.
I guess I was starting to feel a little left out.
Scribble had a talk with The Keeper for me though.
They decided I needed a you're now looking at the new Photography Assistant of Scribble Dolls.

I get to pick the perfect spot for photographing the dolls.
(Yes, I am walking around barefoot in the cold. That's just the way I roll.)

I have to make sure their hair is all in place.
They have to look just perfect for the photos!

But my favorite part of the job...?

I get to spend special one on one time with each doll.
These girls get nervous about having their picture taken and getting ready for their future homes.
It does sound pretty scary.
I get to spend time chatting with them and putting them at ease.
The Keeper tells me I'm pretty good at that part too.

Anyway, how is everyone out in blogland?
Are you getting ready for Christmas?
Now that I'm starting to feel like myself again, I need to get the other dolls in the Christmas spirit!

A Special Day

Hello there. I am Porridge.
I know we've never met before. I prefer to stay behind the scenes and let Pastel do all the blogging.
I decided to make an exception today though.

You see, today is a very special day.
One year ago today, a little box arrived in our mailbox.

At the time, The Keeper was seven months pregnant, working crazy long hours at her work, and preparing to move.
She was pretty sad and very stressed.

She decided she needed a new little friend to "add some color to her life."
And I'm sure you've guessed who that little friend is...Pastel!

Pastel has been a little down lately.
The Keeper and Scribble have been hard at work on their own projects, and I know she's feeling a bit rejected. I'm pretty sure she thinks we've all forgotten her birthday is today.

Little does she know we're about to have a surprise party for her.
I'm sure she'll be on here sharing all the details with you guys in a few days.

I wanted to pop on here though so you guys can have a chance to surprise her with some birthday wishes!

Anyway, off to finish cleaning up (The Keeper is SO messy in this room).

Oh, and nice meeting you all!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys!

I just wanted to say how thankful I am for each and every one of you.
It's because of you all that I continue to have my adventures.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Sorry things have been a bit quiet lately...there's lots of behind the scene stuff going on around here! I'll be back soon...I promise!

Happy Halloween!

Hey guys!
Do you have any big plans tonight?
The Monster High girls are having a big Halloween party tonight and all the dolls around here are invited.

Do you like my costume?
A spider wasn't really my first choice, but it was better than the other option...

Hmph. I wanted to be a princess.

Oh, I think you make a...uh- lovely pumpkin princess, Bea.

Whatever. I'm going on to the party.

Poor Bea.
Anyway...I know I told you all about my Disney trip, but there was one thing I left out.
I was afraid you might think I was silly, but I don't know...

This is the Haunted Mansion.
It was a great ride...pretty spooky (especially if you ride it at night like we did!)
At the end of the ride, they tell you about hitch hiking ghosts...they even show them with you!
The Keeper said it was just a funny part of the ride, but I'm not so sure.

Ever since then I can't shake the feeling that I'm being followed.
It's creepy.

I don't know...maybe I'm going crazy.
Still...I'm getting out of here.

Hey, Bea? Wait for me!

Oh, and have fun and stay safe tonight, you guys!
See ya!

Disney- Day 4

I was happy that day four of our trip would just be visiting Epcot.

I expected it to be a much more relaxing day.
What I didn't realize was just how much walking would be involved.
Especially when you walk all the way around the world...three times.

The "giant golf ball" was pretty cool.
They ride inside had been updated since The Keeper's last visit.
She thought it was much better than before.

We rode several rides towards the entrance of the park...including this one.
The seagulls over there would randomly start moving and saying "Mine, mine, mine!"
It was pretty cute.

And look...we managed to find Nemo!
I wonder how many times this little fish hears "It's Nemo!" in a day.

Now let me explain for a minute how this park is laid out.
Most of the rides are at the front of the actual park.
The back part of the park is the World Showcase. It's basically a bunch of countries in a HUGE circle around a pond. It's a very long walk...

Someone decided we would grab lunch at the World Showcase, and then finish riding the rides at the front of the park.
"We'll just eat in's one of the first countries you come to," they claimed.
Sounded like a good theory...until we got to Mexico and decided we didn't want to eat anything there.

So we went to China.
And that place was a little out of our price range for lunch.
We kept walking until we finally got to Japan.
At that point, it was pouring outside and we were pretty hungry.
We decided we were going to find something to eat in Japan.
Unfortunately, out of all the meals we had in Disney, this was the most disappointing. Ah well.
The Keeper and her husband think the quality of food has gone down in the World Showcase since they last visited. At least, the quality of food in the cheaper restaurants.
I guess they really want you to visit the super pricey places now.

Anyway, we had walked so far, we were pretty much at the halfway point.
See the golfball waaaay in the distance??

We made our way back to the front to finish our rides (we had a FastPass we didn't want to miss).

With the rides out of the way, it was back to another trip around the showcase...this time to actually look at the countries.
Norway was probably my very favorite...although that was probably because we had dessert in the awesome pastry shop there!

You'll have to forgive my lack of pictures from Epcot.
It was a very rainy day and most of pictures didn't quite turn out.
The evening was so wonderful though. The rain cleared out and it was nice and cool and breezy.
It was a perfect way to end our trip.

Our final day was just a travel day. We had to get up early and head for the airport.
Luckily, we had just enough time to grab some lunch before boarding the plane.

Nothing quite like a window seat!

We finally arrived home, completely exhausted.
We all immediately climbed in bed and slept for a few hours (until it was time to go pick up The Keeper's kids.)

Disney was quite an exciting adventure!
I feel so lucky I got to go...and I really hope to have many more big adventures to share with you guys.
(Probably not for awhile though...The Keeper said that trip drained them of all their spare money! Sigh, guess that means no new clothes for me for awhile.)

Disney- Day 3

I knew nothing would be able to top our visit to the Magic Kingdom, but I was still pretty excited about day three.

We decided to just spend a few hours at Animal Kingdom in the morning and then devote the rest of the day to Disney's Hollywood Studios. (The Keeper insisted that place was called MGM, but it clearly said Hollywood Studios everywhere. I think she's crazy.)


That tree in the background was SO cool. It has hundreds of animals carved into it.
I could've walked around it picking out animals all day!

Here's another view of the tree.
I was really missing our old nice camera with its super zoom. Ah well.

I'm so excited to share this picture with you.
I rode every single ride with The Keeper, but I had to stay safely tucked into her purse because she was afraid something might happen to me.
I insisted I get to ride at least one ride outside..and she finally agreed!
This might not have been the biggest "rollercoaster" for you humans, but it's pretty huge for me!

Here we go!!

After my fun ride, we decided on a whim to see this show- Finding Nemo: The Musical.
It just happened to be about to start when we passed the building.
I am SO glad we saw it. It was by far the best show we saw the whole trip.
It was just so neat...if you ever go to Animal Kingdom, don't miss this show (especially if you're a big puppet geek like The Keeper and I are.)

This was the main reason The Keeper and her husband wanted to visit Animal Kingdom.
They told me Expedition Everest was one of their very favorite rides.
After riding it, I completely agree.
It is such an amazing and unique ride...half rollercoaster, half dark ride. Very unusual and very cool!

After some lunch (and ice cream!), we were off to Disney's Hollywood Studios (or MGM as The Keeper insists.)

Now that is a BIG hat!

On our way to the animation studio!
The Keeper says it's just not quite the same as it once was...since all the real animation takes place in CA now, but it was still really fun to see.

And guess who we found...the big guy himself!
Funny enough, this was probably the longest line we had to wait in the entire trip.
The Keeper and her husband just had to have their picture taken with him...they have a little boy at home who was really anxious to hear about meeting the REAL Mickey Mouse. to observe him from the purse. There's something a little intimidating about these big characters to me.


I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE The Muppets.
(I mentioned earlier about being a big puppet nerd.)
The Muppets 3D might be an old show, but it's still great in all its silliness.
Very classic muppet humor. :)

Indiana Jones show!? Yes, please!
He may not have been Harrison Ford, but he was a worthy substitute.

The Hollywood Tower of Terror!
We definitely had to ride this one! Very spooky...and fun!

Another must ride was the Rockin' Roller Coaster. It's quite a, you get to listen to Aerosmith music the whole time!

Day three was quite a lot of fun...but it was SO exhausting having to split one day between two parks!
We managed to see everything we wanted to see at least. :)
