What Makes Me Happy (HARPs Round 1)

#HARPs

Hey, guys! Taco here! (That’s my nickname.) The amazing Starling is holding a contest currently and I’m it! XD I’m on Team Butterfly (BTW). So the theme for this week is “What is Happiness?” Let’s start. ๐Ÿ˜›

To me, happiness is…

Chihuahuas ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ

This is a picture of one of my Aunt’s Chihuahuas. Her name is “Kongi”, which is Korean for “bean”. She’s been through a lot and had surgery a few months ago. ๐Ÿ˜ข For some reason, her tongue is ALWAYS sticking out. SHE’S SO CUTE! ๐Ÿ˜

AG Dolls ๐Ÿ‘ญ

This is what this blog is mainly about!! I’ve been collecting them… FOREVER! I’ve heard a lot of people say “EWWWW!! Those dolls are CREEPY!!” and “UGH!! Taco ACTUALLY plays with dolls!” That’s never going to make me love my dolls any less. ๐Ÿคจ If you have a friend who judges you because you like dolls, you cannot let them harass you like that. ๐Ÿ˜• AG Dolls make me happy and they make a lot of other people happy too.

Going to the AG Store ๐Ÿ›

Even though I don’t go very often, I love going to the AG Store and hangin’ out with my AMAZING mom. ๐Ÿ˜Š Also, it’s fun to purchase stuff. Heh. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Filming Stop-Motions ๐Ÿ“ธ

I don’t ever show my stop-motions to anyone, but sometimes, I like to film stop-motions with my dolls.

Baking ๐Ÿช

I love to bake with my AWESOME dad and lick the frosting off the spoon. My dad is so goofy and fun to hang out with.

Good humour ๐Ÿ˜‚

I love someone with a good sense of humour. I love making jokes with my family.

Me: Knock knock.

You: Who’s there?

Me: Cook.

You: Cook who?

Me: ARE YOU CRAZY?!Snow โ›„๏ธ

In Shanghai, we don’t get much snow, so it’s very rare. Last year, we got 3 or 4 days of snow! Which was A LOT for Shanghai.

Synonyms for “happy” (extra): joyous, gleeful, positive

Total of Points: 19

I hope you enjoyed this post!

My Trip to the AG Store NY Part 1

Hey guys! If you didn’t know, half a month ago, I went to the AG Place NY! Sorry this is a little late (Ok! Really late!!), but I never had enough time to do it. School work and tests…

My first thoughts when I was taking this photo was: “Oh my goodness!! I’m right in front of the AGPNY!!” I mean, come on!! The front was bronze!! Or gold… I don’t know my minerals…

The massive couch that had *360 angle!! Couldn’t help, but sit there for a couple of seconds… or minutes…

AG logo section. Man, I really wanted those Sweet Treats High Tops, but they were out of stock. ๐Ÿ™ I kept spotting them on dolls, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. (In boxes)

Contemporary/GOTY Dolls. Logan seems to be looking @ the camera!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Z’s main display. She reminds me of one of my dolls…๐Ÿค”

Z’s Media Kit. I have that set, except, I use the green screen holder-thingie as a clothesline for my dolls. ๐Ÿ˜

Z’s Desk Set. Again, I also used it as a laundry-related item. A dresser. Her dog looks really cute on the chair. *head tilt*

Girl of the Year Wall!! I personally like Jess and Nikki. ๐Ÿ˜€

More Girl of the Years. I love Mia’s shoes! Kanani is cute too! Sorry that there’s a black spot, if I didn’t cover it, you would be able to see my mom’s face. *nervous laugh*

That was part 1 of my pics I took when I went to AGP NY. Comment what your favorite Girl of the Year (GOTY) is!

-Olivia (A.K.A. Taco)

P.S. I got the part in my school musical I wanted!! XD

Christians and AG Doll Lovers, PLEASE READ THIS!

Hey guys! I just reached 10 followers today! I’m so thankful that 10 people have followed my blog already, even though I’ve only been blogging for a little bit over a month. That’s why I’m going to be doing a special post in honor of this achievement! Also if you are not following my blog, please do that right now or after you read this.

In this special post, I’m going to have my dolls and I react to a few bible verses. If you did not know, I’m a Christian. Let’s start. By the way, none of these are going to be bad reactions, just deep thinking and praising. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Verse 1: God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.” Genesis 1:26

Me: I love this verse! A great way to start the year. I’m so grateful that God created us. We’re so lucky to be blessed. Remember to thank God each day for bringing you to life.

Lea: I love this verse too! We are so totally blessed that God brought us to life.

Verse 2: We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Me: All. So. True. And. Accurate!! They say God thinks we’re his greatest creations and IT’S TRUE!!!!!

Ellie/Mackenzie: I’m so grateful God created us! I love him soooo much and he loves us!

Verse 3: Don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. James 1:22

Me: This is what the 10 commandments are for! Always listen to God, even if it’s hard to do! God will spare you! He does a lot of things that seem bad for a good reason and afterwards, things turn great!

Grace: Definitely has to do with the 10 commandments. Always listen to God’s word and do it!!

Verse 4: God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

(I featured this verse in one of my other posts a couple of days ago. Do you know which post it’s featured in? Comment down below!!)

Me: We are so lucky that Jesus Christ died on the cross for us. (Happy late Easter!!) I’m so grateful God had a good plan and that Jesus sacrificed himself for us.

Kit: I’m so speechless. I’m so thankful Jesus died for us. I’m sure none of us deserved it, but God gave it to us as a present.

Verse 5: The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Me: This is so deep. Can you imagine if you ever did something bad, you’d be killed?! Be grateful God/Jesus saved us.

Z: I’M SO THANKFUL THAT JESUS CHRIST SACRIFICED HIMSELF FOR US!!

Verse 6: Rejoice always. In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Thessalonians 5:16, 18

Me: That’s right. Rejoice all the time! (Probably not aloud in class *snickers*, but in your head. Remember to pay attention!!). Give thanks.

Olive: I’m so thankful for my family, food, water, the Bible, education, AG Dolls, potatoes… ๐Ÿฅ”

Me: Potatoes are food.

Olive: Ok…

Verse 7: “They shall Call his name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23

Me: This is a verse about Jesus being born!! I love the chapter Matthew!

Hannah: Ohh! Baby Jesus is being born!!

So, what did you think about our reactions? Thank you all soooooooo much for 10 followers (saying that makes me feel weak)! God loves you no matter what! If you’re a Christian or got inspired by this post, I DARE you to make a Christian related post! Don’t know how to start? Make a list of what you’re thankful for!

OLIVIA AND HER DOLLS, OUT!

Playtime~An AG Photo Story

“Let’s go outside, Chad!!” Olive requested as she bounced up and down. “Please, Lea?” Lea looked up from her dishes.

“Sure,” Lea replied. “Be back at 6:30,” Olive grabbed her stop-motion equipment, Chad and Olive exited their house, running out to the backyard, and Lea continued her chores. Chad quickly ran back inside, grabbing the dog and a dog ball, and ran back outside.

“I’m gonna work on my stop-motion!” Olive said. She whipped out her doll, Josie (pronounced Hosie), Camera, and tri-pod.

Chad threw the dog ball across the backyard, where Olive had setup. Goober, their dog followed the ball, running towards it.

“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!” Chad ran after Goober, who ran after the ball.

“It’s okay,” Olive replied. “You and Goober can be in my stop-motion too!” Olive snapped photo of Josie, Goober, and Chad, rolling around in the grass.

After they all finished, they played with Goober, laughing and having a good time.

The End

So, did you like the photo story? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m really proud of these pictures and they were super fun to take! By the way, I have some bonus pictures that didn’t make the cut. Hee hee! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Bonus Pictures:

This one reminds me of a picture that American Girl took in one of Z’s stop-motion tips books. ๐Ÿ˜

This one’s pretty cute too. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here’s the last one, Olive does a cartwheel. Right after, she fell on her back. She’s alright though. Let’s just say that Olive’s not the best gymnast. ๐Ÿ˜‰

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

So, what was your favorite picture? Mine would have to be the one of Olive holding Josie. ๐Ÿ˜„ I hope you enjoyed! Happy (late) Easter/April Fools! Stay tuned for a dollhouse tour and my goals as of this April. SEE YA’!

HAPPY EASTER!!! +Photo Story

Hey girls and dolls! Sorry that this is kind of late, but we’ve been partying all day and reading the Bible. We just wanted to say we hope you had an amazing day today! 2 days ago, Jesus died on the cross for us, so we could live. There is nothing that we could ever do to repay him-EVER.

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 This a really important verse to my dolls, family, and I. When we moved, I wasn’t allowed to bring my dozens (JK, but I had a lot) of Bibles. Chinese thought that we had to worship the Chinese God’s. I was devastated after this, but my AMAZING parents bought me a book called Every Day in His Presence By Charles F. Stanley. It has daily devotions I can read each day, along with a new verse.

Moving on, I set up a little egg hunt for my dolls in their dollhouse. I took some pics of them and I’m currently planning a photo story in maybe an hour… Make sure to check that out too!

Happy Easter!! God bless! Remember to spread the word about Jesus!! ๐Ÿ˜€

-Olivia, Lea, Mackenzie, Grace, Kit, Z, Olive, Hannah โค
