Leonie's birthday (belated post)

Here we are - enjoying the swimming pool.  This has been the hottest summer on record and the pool sure feels nice!

 And here we are, drying off in the sun and having some cake! Yes, Beau, we see you (crazy little sisters, eh)

 Did someone say sushi? that's one of our favourite foods!! So, of course, we are having it for a picnic lunch!

 Sisters and best friends forever <3

 And ice cream! I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

 Is it present time? I think it is!!

 I have the BEST sister in the world!!! She got me a book on women in rock music and she and Dad picked out a Transformers truck for me!!

 Squee!! Mom and dad got me clothes!! I know Mom caught me staring longingly at this outfit in the catalogue!!

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all our fellow Canadians! Nous sommes fieres d'etre canadienne!

Mom will post her pictures of Leo's belated beach birthday party once she gets them off the camera and uploaded.

With love from a sunburnt Leonie and Ysabeau.

Leonie here, sneaking on the computer while Mom is asleep and Beau is practising ballet. I learned a new chord on my guitar and school is going well. Beau and I have formed a band together and we practise almost every day.

Review of Popstar Playset by My Life As

Leonie is (grudgingly) wearing the headband that came with the set and called first dibs on the guitar; otherwise the rest of her outfit is Maplelea. Beau is wearing the outfit (and boots) that came with the set and wielding the microphone.

Guitar review: A-. Guitar plays sound when button is pushed. ONLY quibble I have with the guitar is that the strap is not long enough to pose it properly with the dolls. Should be easy enough to swap it out for a longer ribbon (or a shoelace) for more realistic posing.

Outfit review: Cute, fits very nicely on Beau without being too tight in the torso (unlike some other My Life As outfits). Boots are very very cute (molded plastic with slit up the back) and get a lot of wear with other outfits too. Vest is separate from the dress. Only quibble with the outfit is that when packaged, the headband is sewn to the dress and it was quite fiddly cutting the stitches free without cutting either the headband or the dress. Giving the outfit an A- for that.

Microphone, on the other hand, fits VERY nicely in Beau's hands and stays put though multiple poses.  Microphone grade A+.

Leo: Mom, I am taking this stupid headband off now. It pinches my head and looks STUPID.

Leonie: Ah, better. NOW I can really focus on rocking out with my sister.

(like I said, guitar strap is not quite long enough for proper posing of guitar)

"We will, we will ROCK YOU"

Overall, the girls have a blast rocking out with this set and I give it an A-. 

Happy Belated Ostara/Easter

Beau here (about that: I decided that after 6 years of being the 4th Isabelle in dance class to change my name to Ysabeau. Mom supports this as Ladyhawke is one of her favourite movies too). It took Leo and me awhile to figure out how to get the pictures off of Mom's camera and uploaded.

Mom and dad set up an egg hunt for us complete with new dresses!!

Leo does not always like having her photo taken and was getting impatient with the egg hunt. Mom says the photo thing is a tween thing and I will understand when I am that old.

Here we are with our loot!
