Part 2

Lady Fleurette was excited.  Today she’d be coronated!  She would start her job as the Spring Princess.  Her mother had been very nervous about letting her go by herself to the Fall kingdom, which made Fleurette a little miffed.  But then, I did get my long locks accidentally burned off… and didn’t wear my hat, and freckled… she thought, fingering her now above shoulder length hair and fidgeting.  Her mother’s words from a few days ago came back to her:

“Sit still, Fleurette!”

“But I’m so antsy!  I’ve never seen the whole council, and Spring is only two seasons away!”

Her mother had smiled in spite of herself.  “You’ll need to be calm for the council, though.”

Fleurette gazed at the moving scenery, letting her mother’s words fade back into her memory.

     Lady Autumn breathed in the leafy air.  Fall, the season I’ll be in charge of.  Soon.  She loved everything about Fall: pumpkins, leaves, apple everything, and something Humans called Halloween, where children dressed up and ate too much candy.  And the fashionable clothes humans wore!  She’d tried to replicate one, with orange skinny pants and a billowy top.  Even her curly red hair screamed Fall.

     She blissfully turned her freckled face to the sun.  Since it was “her” season, the council would be held at her palace.

“I’ve gotta get back!”  she yelped, running home as fast as her boots could carry her.

     Lady Sommar was busy reading in her carriage.  Or, that’s what she was supposed to be doing.  She was actually staring out at the leafy trees, mourning that her season wouldn’t come for many months now.  Maybe the Queen will want a shorter Spring, her optimistic side hoped. But that’s still forever away!  Her dramatic side groaned.  She just couldn’t focus on her book, although she loved reading.  She daydreamed stories while sunshine streamed through the leaves and kissed her dark face.

Hey guys!  Can you believe November’s almost over?

So yay, new characters!  Their costumes were super fun to create.  Gymnast03 helped a lot, especially with Autumn’s outfit.  Feedback would be awesome!

Lea Movie Premiere Review – By IrishAG

Hello!

On Friday, Mom, Gymnast03, Curiousgeorgefan and I went to American Girl Place Chicago for the Lea movie premiere!  It was so fun!

The movie is called Lea to the Rescue.  Maggie Elizabeth Jones plays Lea Clark, and she is really cute.  The movie is set after the book series, which I love.  Zac is still in Brazil, and is missing.  Lea and her Mom go to Brazil to help look for him.  Can Lea save the day and find Zac?

I really enjoyed the movie.  From the preview, I thought Lea would be totally whiny.  Not so!  And the sloth……….. adorableness!  😀  My Mom liked the movie as well.  It was pretty much nonstop intensity, but it was well acted.  Really little kids might be disturbed by it, but it all ends okay.  🙂

I think it was $10 a person, and that included the movie, popcorn, a Capri Sun or water bottle, a goody bag, crafts and photo ops!  That’s a really good deal for AG.  We checked in at the AG store in Chicago and got our goody bags and wristbands, then walked a block down to the Museum of Contemporary Art for the movie, crafts, concessions and photo ops.  It was crowded, I think it was sold out!

 6-23-16 013

Here’s a picture of Addy waiting for the movie to start in the theatre!  She and I both wore black and white dresses, and Tauriel braids in our hair.

6-23-16 022

Now I’ll review the goody bag!  It says American Girl on it.  Inside, there’s a Lea movie poster, girl and doll passports and doll-sized pineapple juice and popcorn.  I was most excited about the doll food.

So there you go!  Also, AG released the Wellie Wishers and some new doll stuff today!  Go check it out on their website.  🙂  My favorite Wellie Wisher is Willa.  Willa the Wellie Wisher!  🙂

Have you seen the Lea movie?  If so, what did you think of it?

Knit Blanket Sweater Review – By Gymnast03

Hey guys!!   I’m Gymnast03 and I’m going to review the knit blanket sweater.  It’s inspired by Kaya.

sweater review 002

I love the print on this sweater.  The colors are: black, white, pink, blue and red.   It’s a high low hem.   Its comfortable, stretchy and warm.  But if you’re outside for a long time, or it’s cold or really windy, it might not be the best thing to wear because you might get a little chilly.   I don’t think it is meant for an outdoors coat. I usually wear it with black or navy blue leggings or navy skinny jeans. The pants  and sweater look great with a plain white or red shirt.

On the right hand side, there is a Beforever button.

Got any questions or comments??   Please comment below and I’ll respond! 🙂
