Happy Easter!

Hi friends! Chrissa here.  Elizabeth and I love to celebrate Easter.  But not only because of Easter baskets, yummy candy, pretty dresses or  brightly-colored eggs.  This is when we celebrate Jesus' resurrection from the grave.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

So have some fun and get dressed up a little, but don't you overlook the important reason why we celebrate this day!  Now, I'm going to show you what we did.
We made each others Easter baskets.  Pink for Elizabeth (her favorite color) and green for me (my 2nd favorite color).
Here we are with our Easter baskets.
I got a Build-A-Bear, Awesome BITS (my favorite candy), a shirt for my doll, a pen, and a anklet.
I gave Elizabeth a pen, strawberry hand lotion, a anklet, a Build-A-Bear, and a dress for the Build-A-Bear.

Weekend sewing

I, Elizabeth, have been sewing over the weekend, so I thought that I would show the profit of my work.

First of all, we have Chrissa modeling her new pajama shorts.

You can see them a little better here.
Here are the slippers I made for my doll.
I also made a dress and cape.

I'm twelve years old, so some would consider me to old to play with dolls, but in my opinion, you can never be to old for dolls.

P.S. We are going on a trip, so it isn't likely that ether Chrissa or I can post during this week.

Beach Braid

    Hey all! Chrissa here!  Spring break is almost upon us, so today I'm showing you how to do the Beach Braid.  Elizabeth likes this style because it's a great way to get your hair off your neck, especially if you do sports.  If my hair was long enough, I'm sure I would like this style too.

    First of all, the supplies you'll need:

  • Hair Brush
  • Water mister
  • Hairbands- You could use rubber bands, but in the water, these work better for active people
  • The knowledge of how to braid
 Brush her hair (its kind of hard to do anything with it if you don't).
Put it in a pony tail;

Don't be alarmed that Elizabeth's clothes just changed.  Begin to braid...

Finish it up with a ponytail holder...

 And there you have it!

Next time you go to the beach, try this out!

A surprise for Chrissa

Greetings from me, Elizabeth!  I wanted to tell you about what happened this morning.  I was awake early this morning (which is completely normal for me) and decided to give Chrissa a 

Breakfast in Bed!  By the way, mine didn't look like this, but I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of the one I constructed.

When I was finished, I ascended the stairs and...
"Chrissa, wake up." I whispered.
"I'm up, I'm up.  Why did you wake me up so early?" Chrissa said groggily.
"Nine o'clock is not early, Chrissa.  Surprise!  I made Breakfast in bed for you!"
"Well, I don't mind getting up early for that."
"Enjoy!" I said with a smile.
Have you surprised anyone lately?
Do you think nine o'clock is early?

We are on Jlove!

Hey all!  Chrissa here, just to tell you that we are on Jlove

Julie flew down here to St. Augustine to see us.  You should go check it out.

A little baking

   Don't you love that smell of homemade bread fresh out of the oven?  I experienced that today when I made some banana bread.  

I have had a very full morning, it was relaxing to bake (and eat). 
What is your favorite way to relax?
