The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

The Big Birthday Bash, part 3

(continued from part 2)

Grace handed the rectangular present to Josefina, who held it for a moment to build suspense.

"Will you guys get over the whole suspense thing and just give it to me?!!?" Elizabeth exclaimed impatiently.

Everyone laughed, and then Josie reached over and handed it to Elizabeth.

She ripped open the 'happy birthday' paper and squealed when she saw it.

"Oh, yes! Finally!" she held it up. "Yes, yes, yes!"

"I love the screensaver!" Elly showed everyone her new phone.

"Remember-" Josie began.
"The rules." Elizabeth finished. "Phones off by 8:30 p.m. So on and so forth. I know them by heart, Josie- no need to worry!"

"I hope my present doesn't disappoint!" Grace held out a big sparkly box.

On top was a glitter pink card to match, as well.
"Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!" she handed the present to Elly.

She flipped the card over first and read outloud, "Happy Birthday Elly!"

She silently read the rest of the card, then looked up and thanked Grace before opening the box.

As she slid the sparkly top off, she saw an object wrapped in lavender tissue paper.

Unfolding the tissue paper, she saw something pink.

"Oh, cool!" Elly exclaimed.
"What is it?" Everyone else clamored.

Elizabeth held it up for all to see.

Five little charms were in a cute package: the Eiffel Tower, a camera, a suitcase, an anchor and an airplane.
"Thank you, Grace," Elizabeth hopped up and gave her a hug.

"I hope that they will each represent an adventure we have together," Grace whispered into her ear.

"I'm sure they will." Elizabeth flashed a grin.
Then, turning to her sisters, Elizabeth began.

"Thank you all so much," Elizabeth said. "This is the best birthday of my whole life, and I love every single present you've given me!"

"You guys are the best."

As Elizabeth finished, Grace stepped up. "Now let the game begin!"

So, I guess this will end up being a seven part story, considering!
