Lissie’s Birthday Surprise

Hey, everyone!!! So… long story short, Felicity’s birthday was April 21, and I was super busy that day and didn’t get around to posting about until now, which turned out to be GREAT because I found the PERFECT present for her at a thrift shop on Friday! Anyway, so here is the story from Lissie’s POV!

Early one morning, I was sleeping peacefully, when suddenly I thought I heard a whinny- and it sounded familiar!

I shot straight up in bed, listening intently, but I didn’t hear any more. I must have been dreaming, or maybe it was just Gala. I thought. Oh well, I’m up now. Might as well stay up. Then it hit me: today was my birthday! I was 14!

After my personal devotion time, I went to get dressed. Hmm, what should I wear?” I wondered to myself. It had to be something special!

I finally decided that I’d borrow Chrissa’s paint splatter shirt and Bethany’s dotted leggings. I then went to the family room for worship.

To my surprise, Chrissa was blocking the door, waving frantically. “You can’t come in here yet! It’s not ready!” “Ok…” Well, I guess they’re all setting up a party. What do I do now?

I slid up against a wall, thinking over birthdays past…

I remembered how Nan had always been the first one up, the first one to wish me happy birthday…

How they would all hug me: Nan, William and little Polly…

I remembered my first birthday in the orphanage, how I had cried….

My first birthday with Bethany, the crazy sister that I never knew I had…

The first birthday I had looked at my new home with joy and gratitude, and Hope had thrown me a party…

Bethany’s voice jerked me out of my reverie: AGH! STOP DRAGGING ME, I’M SUPPOSED TO BE LEADING YOU! AHHH! She’s probably torturing poor Ginger again… I thought. Just then, Raven showed up, smiling. “We’re ready.” She said, and beckoned for me to follow her.

She led me into the family room. “SURPRISE!” Chrissa yelled. I laughed a little at the sight before my eyes. They had set up a little table with cake on it, and Chrissa was standing on a chair with a party hat on. Raven reached over and tied one on me. “Thanks, guys!” I said. “Wait, where are Bethany and Mandy?” “Oh, they’re coming!” Chrissa answered with a twinkle in her eye.

Just then, Mandy and Bethany clomped triumphantly into the room-but they weren’t alone! I could scarcely believe my eyes! It was-

PATRIOT! I rushed to the horse, tears streaming down my face. Was it really, truly him? Patriot whinnied excitedly, and I had no more doubts. This was, indeed, Penny’s foal! The prodigal colt had returned! If only Penny were here to see her runaway son come home…

I buried my face in Patriot’s mane, still in shock. Then Mandy spoke up. “I think she likes it!” and we all started to laugh.

I had only one question. “How ever did you find him?

“Well,” began Chrissa, “my-uh- you see, I know someone who saw a horse in a field that belonged to, uh, a friend of his, and uh, they let him have it, and he gave it to me.” “Yeah! We all pitched in to get things ready and take him to the vet and stuff!” Mandy added. “One thing, though…” Raven piped up. “What’s the story behind Patriot’s disappearance?”

“Patriot ran away from home-well, he jumped the fence, actually. Penny, who was his mom, and I were heartbroken, and we hadn’t seen him since. Now, he’s here! I can’t thank y’all enough. You have no idea how much this means to me. I have the best sisters ever!” I said, grabbing them in a group hug.

Suddenly, Chrissa gasped. “AHHH! WHO ATE THE CAKE!?!?”

THE END!!! So, did y’all like this story? I’m sorry I haven’t been posting a lot, I’ve been really busy and stuff


ANYWAY. Do you know who ate the cake? XD Happy about Patriot? Want to wish Felicity a belated birthday? Tell us in the comments, and have an amazing day!!!

Nothing To Hide- Season One Part Four

FINALLY I HAVE QUIT PROCRASTINATING Y’ALL! Here it is, the long-awaited next part of my photoseries!!! *confetti* Also, you might notice that I HAVE A NEW DOLLHOUSE SETUP due to an urgent room-rearrangement. XD So HERE IT IS,

Mandy’s POV

Dear Sarah,

I am really happy with my new home. The mom of the house did decide to keep me! I was worried that she would be mad, but she welcomed me and even gave me a bunch of Bethany’s old toys! Bethany wasn’t too happy about that. Anyway, so I share a bed with her now, she’s really funny and crazy. Felicity sleeps on the floor on a pullout bed, and Chrissa and Raven sleep in the loft. Anyway, how are you? How is James? Don’t argue too much, will you? Have you seen Norman lately? Is he getting into any trouble at the orphanage? I miss you all.


Mandy Brinlie Flood ❀️

I pick up the postcard off of the floor, and quietly tuck it under my bed. I will mail it later when everyone else is up. I quickly slide back into bed and start to close my eyes when I see something

Chrissa isn’t in her bed! It’s 5:00 in the morning! Where could she be? I wondered. My curiosity got the best of me and I decided to investigate.

I pulled on my jacket, just in case Chrissa went outside.

As I rounded the corner, I stopped short at the sight of a figure sitting in the hallway.

It was Chrissa! I stood still, wondering what I should do, when I heard her talking.

“Ricky- Ok, ok! I know you don’t trust them, but I do! Yes, I do remember Chicago! Why do you keep saying that?” Chrissa’s voice grew louder and louder until she was shouting. “NO! I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING! What? NO! RIC-” She dropped the phone in defeat.

She closed her eyes and sighed. I thought I saw a tear trickle down her face, but I couldn’t tell because she opened her eyes- and saw me. When I tried to turn and run, I discovered that her shouting had aroused all the other dolls- and I crashed straight into Felicity.

“Oooph!” I groaned as we both came toppling down. I turned my head to steal a glance at Chrissa.

She stood to her feet, her eyes wide. “How-how much did you hear?” Her voice trembled with- what was it? Fear? What could Chrissa have to be afraid of?



Chrissa Rachel Marie, Snow Queen- A Photostory/ Photoshoot

Hello, everyone! It’s me, Chrissa Rachel Marie Maxwell!! Today, all my adopted sisters slept in, so I went outside to play! Hope came along to snap some pictures, and I have to say that I didn’t look the most neat and fashionable, but who cares! I was having fun as the SNOW QUEEN!

Hope’s note: My mom dressed Chrissa, she did a great job!!!!

So first, I walked out onto the snow. It was so deep that I could stand on it without touching the grass!

Boots, wonderful boots.

Me. Making a snow angel.


Preparing to throw a snowball at an unspecified victim.

Close your eyes and feel the silence…. I love how snow muffles noise. It makes me feel closer to God without all the distraction of noise.

More pictures. Idk what to say except I was staring at a bird.

Me making a snowball.

That’s all for now, y’all! *throws snowball at screen*

Hope’s note: *don’t worry no iPads or dolls were hurt in the making of this photoshoot* XD

Nothing To Hide- Season One Part Three

In Chrissa’s POV

I lead the little girl down the hall and into Hope’s room. “The dollhouse is just around the corner.” I said. I wondered what Bethany would say….

As we rounded the bend, I gasped in shock. My room had been cleaned and organized! Bethany and Leilani stood there in front of it. “Bethany!” I whispered. “Did you do this????”

“Yes.” She bit her lip. “I-I’m really sorry for going through your stuff. I know it was wrong, and so I did this to make up for it. I hope you like it.” “And I helped!” Lealani piped up.

“Will you forgive me?” Bethany asked. “Of course!” I smiled and gave her a hug.

“Ahem.” I heard Mandy clear her throat behind me. “Oh! Bethany, this is Mandy. She’s our new sister!”

“ANOTHER NEW SISTER!?!? YAY!!!! HOW OLD ARE YOU!?!? WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE COLOR!?!?!? DO YOU LIKE CATS!?!?” She started firing questions at her. Thankfully, Mandy seemed used to girls like Bethany, because she grinned and answered, “I’m 10, my favorite color is green, and yes, I like cats!” I shook my head as Bethany did a victory dance. “YESSS I’M NOT THE YOUNGEST ANYMORE!!!!!”

I took Mandy over to Leilani, and they talked about going on adventures and stuff.

Then, I took her over to Felicity and Raven, who welcomed her nicely. Just then, I heard a voice: “Now, who is this?” It was Hope!


YAY CLIFFHANGERS but you obviously know I’m not going to turn down the poor doll XD

Anyway, so I hope you liked it! Never fear, however, even though Bethany and Chrissa have made up, THERE ARE MORE MYSTERIOUS THINGS TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR!

That’s all for now!!!

Nothing To Hide- Season 1 Part 2

In Chrissa’s POV

I sat outside. It was dark, dreary, and raining. After I had seen what Bethany was holding, I had ran out here. I wasn’t mad anymore, just a little worried. I could hear Hope talking to Bethany about how looking through people’s things is a sin.

Suddenly, I heard a noise.

I turned around and saw a girl trying to climb up onto the porch!

I rushed over to her. “Do you need help?” I asked.

She hopped up on the porch. “I’ve got it.” She smiled cheerfully. “I’m Mandy Brinlie Flood. Who are you?”

“I’m Chrissa Rachel Marie Maxwell.” I smiled back at the girl.

She sat down and emptied her bag.

I sat down as well. “I live here. What are you doing here?”

“I was looking for a place to wait out the rain, and to write a postcard to my best friend Sarah. I hope I’m not intruding.”

Hmmm… I thought. “Do you have a home?” I asked her.

“No.” She shook her head sadly. “Then you can come live with me and my adopted sisters!” I suggested. “Really!?!?” Mandy was surprised. “Yes! I’m sure Hope won’t mind.” I grinned happily and led the girl inside.

So, I have had mercy on you and ended without a cliffhanger! XD Stay tuned for part three, where the dolls will meet Mandy!

Aka Hope πŸ™‚πŸ’–πŸ˜„

Nothing To Hide~Season One Part One~

Hello, all!!!! Here is the season premiere of my new photoseries, Nothing To Hide, or NTH. Basically, Chrissa is acting kinda strange, and the two “detectives”, Detective Merriman (Bethany) and Lealani (Lea), are gonna get to the bottom of it. It’s kinda like a follow-up for the mystery started in this post. I’m really sorry it took me so long, as I said before, WordPress wasn’t cooperating with me. πŸ˜‘ So, let’s get on with it!!!

Lealani’s POV<<<<<<<<
's what it said!" I had just finished explaining the strange postcard to Bethany. "HMMMM…. INTERESTING!" She had a strange look on her face. "I think it's time for a little detective work! I'll be right back!"<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ff in a flash. I sat there waiting… and waiting… and waiting…. until finally she came back.

ve you-" My mouth dropped open. "What on earth are you wearing, Mommy!?!?!?" She looked at me sharply. "It's my detective outfit, young Lea. And please, while I'm on the job, call me Detective Merriman." I rolled my eyes. "Fine. So what are we supposed to do, Detective Merriman?" I asked.

We need to go spy on Suspect Number 1!" "Umm… who's that?" I was confused. "It's Chrissa!" She whispered, and started walking away. I sighed and followed her.

d slowly up to Chrissa and Raven's room. Chrissa was still unpacking all her stuff. Evidently she couldn't decide where to put what. "Hey, Chrissa!" I said cheerfully. "Leee-aaaa! You just blew our cover!" Bethany scolded. I shrugged. "Oh, well…" she muttered. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
looked up. "Oh, hi Bethany! Hi Lealani! Sorry for the mess! I was just tidying my room!" She smiled kindly. "Cool! Sooo, uhh…" Bethany started. Just then, Felicity yelled from upstairs. "Chrissa! Raven!!! Mami says we can go outside now!!" <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Lissie!" Chrissa shouted back. "Sorry, guys! I have to go!" And with that, she grabbed her headphones and left.

ur chance! We can look through her stuff now!" Bethany grinned. "Look through her stuff!?!? Why would we want to do that!?!?" I whined. I was starting to think that this wasn't such a good idea.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
vidence!" Bethany rolled her eyes and grabbed a bag, then plunked down on the bed. I reluctantly climbed up next to her. <<<<<<<<
ng.." <<<<<<<<
ship poster…" <<<<<<<<
hat is this strange thing?" Bethany wondered. "I don't know! Can we get out of here now? I feel like a trespasser!" I complained. "No, we need to-" Bethany started to say. But then, a harsh voice came from the doorway. <<<<<<<<
the world do you think you're doing!?!?" It was Chrissa.
