Christmas Collab Day 4: The Songbird’s Surprise

Hello, dear marshmallows! Today is day 4 of the collab. Let’s get started!

DISCLAIMER: I took these with a camcorder, which I am still getting the hang of so these may not be the best quality in the world.

Z will be in indigo, Tenney in coral, and Alexandra in black.

It says…compose a song like birds singing. Cool! 

SUNP0017.JPG

And this is perfect, T, because I don’t really….erm….posses any musical talent, so would you help me compose a song?

SUNP0019.JPG

Sure! Here, whistle like a bird, and I will match the pitch with my guitar. Ready?

Yup! *whistles horribly*

What’s all the racket about?

Lexie, I’m filming! Besides, you interrupted Tenney’s—

Wait, Tenney?

And also, I was hoping that i could stay here, too? Emmie’s sister, DiamondUnicorn430, is thinking about adopting me.

Really? Of course! YEAH!

And that’s how Tenney came to stay! Also, I said I would post the polls for the Emmies today, but I’ll have to put them up tomorrow…Sorry ’bout that!

Christmas Collab Day 2: Delightful Decorating

Time for day 2!

“Hello, everybody! Today I’m going to be opening day 2 of our advent calendar. Let’s open it up!”

“Day 2 says to decorate your bedroom for Christmas!”

“Yes, Popcorn, you can help too. Let’s get started!”

Here’s a mini tree, some presents, and a snowman!”

“A blanket…”

“A stocking, jingle bells, and a snowflake garland!”

“Bye, everyone! Z Crew, Out!”

Z. Crew, Out!

Christmas Collab Day 1: The Un-pear-able Treat

Hello, people of the earth!

Today is day 1 of the collaboration with the fabulous EnniMorgan! Her post will be up later this evening. I’ll be posting tomorrow, then she’ll be posting the next day, then I’ll be posting the day after that, and so on.

So, let’s get started, shall we?

Please ignore the fact that Alexandra is not wearing underpants…

“What’s that?” Maryellen asked, pointing to the foam cut-out in Lexie’s lap as she and Isabel walked in to the kitchen/living room.

“It’s an advent calendar. Emmie made it for us.” Alexandra propped the “advent calendar” on the couch.

Isabel shot Ellie a confused look. “What’s that?” She mouthed. Ellie shrugged in reply.

“It’s how we’re gonna countdown until Christmas. Each day, we’ll open a flap and do an activity that the flap reads.”

Alexandra flipped open Flap #1. “What does it say?” Maryellen asked eagerly.

“Make a pear-related treat.” Alexandra read aloud.

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO MEEEEE, A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEE,” Isabel sung loudly.

“Oh, I get it. Let’s look up some recipes.”Maryellen said. Alexandra flipped open the laptop and browsed through recipes.

“This one looks good,” Maryellen said.

“I’ll preheat the oven!”

“I’ll gather the ingredients!”

“I guess I’ll do the baking,” Alexandra ran off to the counter.

«1 Hour Later»

Maryellen pulled the tray out of the oven, expecting to find rows of perfectly browned apple-and-pear crisps. Instead, she found a single lump of stringy, burnt pears.

“What’s that?” Alexandra asked.

“Ummm….our pear crisps.” Maryellen hesitantly took bite, which she immediately spit out. It tasted Terrible with a capital T!

“Wait, how high did you set the oven too?”

Sorry this is blurry!

“Uh, 3,760 degrees, like the recipe said.”

“No, the recipe said 376 with a degrees sign! That little O at the top means degrees!”

“Oh.”

Alexandra facepalmed.

Felicity the Cheerleader!

The Diary of a Doll

dear diary,.png

Hiiiii guys! So I kinda went on an un-announced hiatus because of NaNoWriMo/NaNoWriMo prep. Ooops. XD

Anyways…Lea had to babysit our little cousin Raven and she was taking her to the park, so we decided to tag along! (This was back in August, btw, otherwise it would have been FREEZING!) I had been training for cheer tryouts and Isabel was my “coach”, so we jumped at the chance to show off our skills at the park.

An ode to my retainer

You give me terrible sores

And you make it hard to eat

I would much rather

Have a cast on my feet!

Sure, you’re sparkly and blue

But I really hate you!

“What’s that blue thing in your mouth?” 

Is what people always say

And I just hope with all of my heart

That I’ll be retainer-free someday!

Sorry for a weird/random post. My retainer is making a terrible sore on my upper lip and it rEaLlY hUrTs. I’ll post a photostory on Saturday!
