Sister Tag with Kit and Maryellen!

Hello, awesome people! Diamond nominated Kit and Ellie for Sister Tag! Thank you so much Diamond! You are awesome! Now, the rules are;

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog
  • Answer the eleven questions below, and then have your sister do the same
  • Nominate seven bloggers and ask them the same eleven questions
  1. Which of you is older?
  2. What’s your favorite thing to do together?
  3. What is your sister’s favorite food?
  4. What’s a character trait in the other that you appreciate?
  5. What’s a character trait in the other that you don’t appreciate?
  6. What’s one hobby you have that the other doesn’t?
  7. Who keeps a cleaner room?
  8. What’s the biggest way in which your sister can annoy you?
  9. Describe each other in three words.
  10. How do the two of you differ personality-wise?
  11. Why do you love your sister? (C’mon, you know you do!)

Ok, let's get started! Ellie goes first, and her talking is in pink.

1. Kit is older-she is almost 12, and I am 10.

2. Play cards! We play Go Fish and SlapJack a lot, especially when we're bored.

3. Um....uh....*whispers* ''Kit! What's your favorite food? Uh-huh-ok, thanks!'' Ahem. Kit's favorite food is Greek olives.  I personally think they taste like they've gone rotten, but to each her own, I guess.

4.  Kit is always ready to listen, and she doesn't freak out easily.

5. KIT DOESN'T LIKE FASHION!! AHHH! SERIOUSLY, FASHION. IS. LIFE. Oh, and how she  likes to wear a black shirt and navy blue shorts. SERIOUS Fashion No-No.

6. Fashion is my hobby, and Kit's is photography and writing.

7. We share a room, so it's kinda hard to tell, but our room is usually pretty neat.

8. Kit isn't really the annoying type, I mean, she doesn't do it intentionally, but it drives me bananas when she wears stripes and polka dots, or another Fashion No-No.

9. Calm. Book-loving. Competent.

10. Well, like I said, Kit is a lot calmer than I am, and she prefers to read than be fashionable. Kit is more of an introvert, though she isn't shy, and I am definitely extroverted.

11. Hmm......I love her because she is always ready to listen to me when I'm upset. But don't take it too seriously Kit!

Thank you, Ellie! Now it's Kit's turn. Kit talks in Green.

1. I am older, almost 12 (on June 30th, exactly) and Ellie is 10.

2. I know this sounds weird, but we seem to bond over cleaning our room.

3.  Ellie's favorite food is cupcakes with vanilla frosting and rainbow sprinkles. I have to say I can't argue much.

4. I love that Ellie is always so ready and smile-y. She always makes anyone feel welcome.

5. Well....Sometimes I feel like she is too high-strung. You know, how she freaks out if her favorite dress isn't clean....I mean, it's just a dress!

6. My hobbies are photographing and writing. I suppose Maryellen's are fashion.

7. I think I'm neater, even if we share a room.

8. When she tells me there's something wrong with my outfit! Argh!
9. Stylish, Smiley, Sassy.

10. I prefer sitting and reading a novel with a glass of iced tea, and Ellie is more of an active-type-girl.

11. Ellie, I love you 'cause you are so sweet and sassy.

Thank you, Kit! That was so sweet!

AND NOW! THE NOMINEES ARE.......................................................................................................

P.S. I'm planning a Q&A post for sometime next week-if you have any questions for me, comment them below!

Let's Talk; If You Could Put Freckles on Any Doll, Who Would It Be?

Hello awesome readers! It's time for Let's Talk! Last week's question was.....

         ''Who was your First AG Doll?''

Our selected comment is from...........AG Homeschooler! She commented;

My first doll was #59, Carol. I had wanted an American Girl doll for a long time, and I was going to ask for one with brown eyes and black-brown hair. (Since she looked the most like me). But then #59 came out, and, looking the most like me because I have brown hair, and not black-brown hair, I fell in love! I love her to this day.

Thank you for commenting AG Homeschooler! I'm so glad you got Carol!

And now for today's question which is.....................................................................................................

''If You Could Put Freckles on Any Doll, Who Would It Be?''

Phew! That was a long one!

My answer; '' If I could put freckles on any doll, it would be #65. With that red hair and blue eyes, she just needs them! It would be so cute!''

Now that I've answered, It's time for you to! I can't wait to see what you guys comment!

The U-Pick Garden of Eden 😛 A Photostory

Hello, Awesome Readers! Due to a sudden bout of Summer Vacation boredom ;), I made this little photo story. Enjoy!

''So why are we here again?'' Adalyn asked her rommate, Kit, as they walked through a U-Pick farm.

''Because I want blueberry pie for my birthday, and we are going to pick blueberries.'' Kit answered patiently.

''But why can't we just buy blueberries from the store??'' Adalyn persisted, impatiently.

''Because produce from a grocery store is not usually organic, and because it is usually shipped from the west coast, leaving a larger carbon footprint. And, by going to a U-Pick farm, we are supporting local agriculture.'' Kit explained.

Adi rolled her eyes. ''Blah, blah, blah,'' she imitated; ''Picky, picky, picky. It's just some berries!''

''Adalyn,'' Kit said in a warning voice.

''Ugh,fine.'' Adalyn grumped, as she followed Kit.

Kit leaned over a sign showing what direction to go in. ''C'mon, Adi, blueberry picking is this way,'' she said.

When they reached the blueberry patch, Kit handed Adi a pail. ''Get picking!'' she said cheerfully.

''What's to stop me from just sitting?'' Adi asked defiantly.

''If you don't pick a full bucket, you won't get any pie.'' Kit said matter-of-factly.

Adalyn looked at the pail in distaste.

''Fine.'' Adi took the pail.
''Good.'' Kit started plopping berries into her pail.

''You know, I think this whole 'organic' thing is a whole load of baloney,'' Adalyn said as she picked.

''Adalyn, pesticides can have a detrimental effect on health, and by using less chemicals, we can help preserve wildlife.'' Kit told her roommate.

''Yeah? Well I think vegetables and fruits aren't worth worrying over, because there are WAY better things out there! Like chicken mcnuggets!'' Adalyn shot back.

Kit looked Adi straight in the eye. ''Adalyn,'' she began, ''you know what? Every time you say things like that, you are underappreciating God's wonderful creation.''

That made Adalyn stand up. ''What?'' she asked.

Kit plucked some blueberries off the bushes. ''Look, Adalyn. When God created blueberries through evolution some two million years ago, He created them for us then-still-evolving humans to eat. He made them taste good, and He made them a pretty color. If we say that they are ''boring'' then we are not appreciating the wonderful care that God put into them. How about that?''

Adi looked down at her pail of blueberries. It wasn't even half full.

Slowly, she turned to the bushes and started rapidly picking.

A few minutes later, she held her now-overflowing bucket of blueberries up to Kit's. ''I'm done!'' she said, happily.

''Awesome, Adi! High Five!'' Kit said.

Adalyn slapped her hand into Kit's triumphantly.

As the two girls walked home, lugging their heavy buckets, Adi said; ''That...was actually a lot of fun.''

''I knew you would,'' Kit replied.
''In fact,  you did so well, that I thought you could help me with picking, threshing, and grinding the wheat into flour for the pie crust!''


''I'm kidding! The flour we can buy.''
