Road to Resurrection | Easter AGPS

Happy Easter (and April Fool’s Day)!

Yesterday, my family volunteered for Road to Resurrection, an Easter event at our church. The building was decorated to look like the city of Jerusalem, and tour groups were led through to experience the Easter story in real life. Me, my mum, and another girl ran the first destination, which was supposed to be the Eastern Gate of the city. We dressed up in tunics and head coverings and talked about the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9, how Jesus was going to save the Jews from the Romans, and some nicknames for God. Then everyone waved around palm branches and shouted “hosanna” while we pretended Jesus was riding into the city.

It was fun, but really exhausting. The glass hallway we were set up in got incredibly hot, and my feet hurt by the end up the day. But they did buy us pizza, so. :)

I did my best to make Eve look like a Jewish girl and took some pictures of her in front of the gate.

I wish this one wasn’t so dark. :’)

The rest of the pictures were taken in the “market,” where all the visitors gathered before starting the tour. It was pretty amazing, because they had canvas pavilions, potters, basket weavers, spinners, and sacks of food set up.

I love the pretty scarf in the background!

To celebrate, my family is going out for lunch with grandparents #1, and then having dinner with grandparents #2. I’ll be picking up an AG doll at dinner, which I’m very excited for. :)

Have a good day!

Do you have any Easter traditions? Let me know in the comments.



Guest Post: AG Egg Hunt

Hi, guys! I have another guest post to share today. This one was sent in by Kara, who blogs over at the Hello Dollie Blog. Kara created a photostory of her dolls collecting Easter eggs — now a bit late, perhaps, but too cute not to share.

Beautiful Blonde ~ an AGPS

I hope you had a great Easter! Our Christ rose from the dead!

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately. I’ve been writing a bunch! If you want to read some of my work, go over to AG Homeschool  and visit the Other Stories section. The stories written by SecretKeeper are my stuff.

I did a photoshoot of Caroline in her Easter outfit for you guys. I absolutely adore how Caroline looks in these picture!
























Have any of your dolls ever been caught crying because they aren’t used much? I have reports from my little spy, Sneaky Savannah, that Emily and Caroline break down from time to time because of this. Hopefully they’ll appear on my blog more :)


P.S. Check out Blue’s blog, Tall Dolls!

Easter ~Part Two~

Sorry it took so long to post this…it rained and rained here!


“Molly, will you please bring the baskets?” Caroline asked as she walked down the steps.

“Okay,” Molly replied, picking the baskets up.

“I’m going to find all the pink eggs!” Jillian squealed.

“I won!” Tracy exclaimed, bounding off the bottom step and on to the grass.

“Yeah, good for you, Trace,” Isabelle muttered.


Saige did a flying leap over Tracy’s head, and landed with a thud in the grass. “Woo! I’m second!” Saige panted.

“Go on, Coconut. Go and play with Chocolate Chip. Just jump off that step. It’s not very high off the ground,” Issy coaxed.

“Caroline, will you help me down?” Jillian asked.

“Yes,” Caroline answered, reaching up to help Jilly down.

“Come on, Molly,” Emily said quietly, waiting for her.

“I’m coming,” Molly replied, quickening her pace.


“Molly, please pass the baskets out,” Caroline said, taking a seat in the grass.

“Okay,” Molly said as she got up.


“But first, who wants one?” Caroline asked.


Jillian, Emily and Molly all raised their hands.


“That’s only three, anybody else?” she asked again.

Reluctantly, Isabelle and Saige put their hands in the air.

“I’m only doing this to win,” Saige muttered.


“Molly, are there five baskets?” Caroline asked.

Molly checked. “Yes, there are exactly five.”


“Here, Jilly,” Molly said, handing her a small, blue bag. “A little bag for a little girl.”


“Here, Saige,” Molly dropped a bag in Saige’s lap.

“Don’t you think that you are a little too old for this?” Saige questioned.

“Do you think that you are a little old for this? And no, I don’t. I want to be a kid a little longer; plus, I enjoy doing this, and that’s what matters.” Molly turned on her heel and walked away.


Molly approached Isabelle and handed her a bag.

“Thanks!” Issy exclaimed.


“Thank you,” Emily said quietly, taking hers


“I guess this is mine, then,” Molly announced, holding the basket by its handle.


“Okay, on three, you can start,” Caroline said, “One…two…THREE!”

The girls ran off to find the eggs.


“I found one!” Isabelle thought excitedly as she stashed it in her bag.


“They hide one here every year!” Molly reached down into a ditch and pulled out a blue egg.


“I found a pink one!” Jilly thought, grabbing it.


“I found one!” Emily said, opening her bag.


“I bet no one else has found one yet!” Saige thought, putting it in her bag. She got up to look for more.


“And here’s another!”


“This must be one of the last ones,” Emily decided as she pulled a green one out from under some leaves.DSC_0032

“More pink!” Jillian exclaimed.


The girls gathered at the starting point to be judged.

“I bet that I got the most,” Saige boasted, holding up her bulging bag for every one to see.

“Good for you. Not,” Issy breathed, looking away.


“Please hold out your bags so that I can count the eggs,” Caroline announced. After looking in all the bags, Caroline said, “And the winner is…


Saige!” She walked over to raise Saige’s hand in the air. “Saige found five eggs. Second place is…Jillian! Third goes to Molly, and a tie for fourth between Emily and Isabelle.”

The girls dashed off to eat their candy.


Tracy, who had been playing with the dogs, came to a stop next to Caroline. “Tracy, what did you mean by “real fun”?” Caroline asked, remembering when they had come outside.

“Oh, nothing, just…



“TRACY!!” Caroline screamed.

Later that night…..


“Ahhh! Its the Evil Owl! Back to base!” Jillian screamed with delight, dashing towards the bunk beds.


“I think that we ought to be going now, Caroline,” Viola said, “Thank you for hosting!”

“Thank you for coming,” Caroline replied.


“Jillian, we need to go,” Viola called.

“Okay, mommy, I’m coming,” Jillian sighed.


The Turner family was escorted to the door. Jillian hugged Caroline. Molly and Issy waved. Saige shook hands with Viola. And then the door closed. The sisters walked back to the bedroom.


“I’m bored!” Tracy yelled.


“Yeah, I’m bored to,” Molly said as she sat down on the end of Isabelle’s bed.


“What do we do now?” Saige asked, taking out her earrings, “Pig out on candy?”


“We could get ready for bed. We have school tomorrow.” Caro suggested.

“And why would we want to do that,” Tracy asked.


“Well it 7:00, so we may as well anyway,” Caroline said, avoiding the question.

“No. That says 6:59, not 7:00. Therefore, we don’t have to go to bed,” Tracy decided.

“Says who?” Caroline challenged.

“Says the oldest.”

“Do it.”



“Hey Tracy, can I have your earrings?” Saige asked.

“Sure,” Tracy replied, dropping them in Saige’s hand.

“Thank you.”

20 minuets later….


“I’ll button that for you, Emily,” Saige said kindly, brushing Emily’s hair out of the way.

“Thank you, Saige,” Emily replied

“You’re welcome!”


Caroline walked into the bedroom. “Molly, will you help me make your bed?”

“Okay!” Molly answered as she finished braiding her long hair.


As Molly started to fold the carpet, Caroline pulled a blanket out from under the bed. “Just one more button, Emily. Done!” Saige said.


Once Caro had spread the blanket out on the floor and Emmy had wiggled under the covers, Molly walked over and handed Emily her special doll. Molly had hers tucked under her arm. “Here you go, Em!”

“Thanks, Molly,” Emily took her doll.


Tracy tucked her phone under her pillow just as Issy walked in.


She was brushing her teeth. “Oh, is everybody else ready?” she asked.

“Yep,” Caroline nodded.

“Okay, I’ll be right back then.” She walked away.


Shortly after Isabelle came back without her toothbrush. She pushed the covers aside and climbed into bed. Coconut jumped up and licked her face. “Yes, I love you to,” Issy giggled.


“I’ll tuck you girls in, in a second,” Caroline promised, sliding off the bed.


“Good night, Saige,” Caroline said, kissing Saige on the cheek.

“Good night, Caroline,” Saige replied.


“Night, Issy,” Caroline smiled, kissing Isabelle on the forehead.

“Night night,” Issy snuggled deeper down under her covers.


“Love you girls. Good night,” Caroline said.

“Love you,” Emily said quietly.

“Ditto,” Molly rolled over in bed.


Caroline turned towards Tracy. “Night, Tracy,” she leaned over Tracy.

“No way. You are NOT kissing me,” Tracy protested, squirming away.

Caroline walked into the living room, and grabbed a book.


She came back and hopped up on her bed. The book she had picked up was the Bible. Then she turned to Luke chapter 24. “On the very first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb,” she began,”They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus….Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” Caroline finished, closing the Bible.


“Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for this day that you created. Please bring people to the light. . . you. Thank you for dying on the cross to save us from our sins. And in Jesus’ name, Amen,” Caroline prayed. A chorus of “Amen” came from the girls.


And then the girls went to sleep.

Easter ~Part one~

Hi, happy people! Hope you all had an AWESOME Easter! Sorry that this is late, but I had a SUPER busy weekend! My dolls had an awesome Easter (me, too!). Anyway, here is a photo story!


Everyone was doing their own thing to pass time before a very special guest arrived!


The girls had fun decorating the house in pretty flowers! Some blue ones on the desk chair.


Orange on the couch.


Purple on the dinning room chair.


And RAINBOW on the bunk beds! And what the girls were doing…


Izzy was practicing dance.


Saige and  Tracy were playing Pokémon X on their DS (I don’t know how to make “DS” plural)

“Go Eeevee!” Saige yelled.


Caroline was making sure that the flowers were arranged just right.


Molly was putting on perfume.


Emily was reading her book, Runaway Mice.


 Chocolate Chip and Coconut, well, playing!


“Perfect!” exclaimed Caroline, carefully pushing in the chair. And then…


The flowers slipped! “Noooooo!” she wailed.


Then the doorbell rang.


“I’ll get it!” Molly squealed, grabbing her camera and dashing towards the door.


“Clean up, everyone!” Caroline hollered, fixing the flowers.


Isabelle slipped her shoes on,  grabbed her book on dancing, turned off her CD player and ran to put them away.


Tracy and Saige slid off of the bed and put their DS away.


Emily placed her book back on the bookshelf.


Molly opened the door. “Hi Ms. Turner!” she screamed, “Oh, uh, SORRY!”


“Why, hello, Molly,” Viola Turner said, laughing quietly. “Jillian’s Easter outfit is in this bag,” she said, holding up a blue duffle bag.


“Hello, Ms. Turner. Welcome! I’ll take that bag, and help Jillian get changed,” Caroline said, taking the bag.


“Come on, Jilly. I’m sure you’ll look cute as a button in you’re dress!


“I wanna selfie!” Molly hollered, snapping a pic. (If Molly takes a picture of herself and Viola Turner, is it still called a selfie?)


“Wow! Can I please, please, please, have your autograph?!” Isabelle screamed, holding out a pen and notepad.


(This is not the picture Molly took)


Click. “I HAVE to send this to Kit,” Molly murmured, looking at the picture on her camera.


“Here, Miss…..”


“Here, Miss Isabelle,” Viola repeated.

Izzy ran off to her bed and stowed the notepad under her pillow.


Molly hid in a corner behind the dinner table and started writing Kit.

“Dear Kit,

Viola Turner is at our house for Easter!


“Ms. Turner,” Caroline said, motioning at Jillian.


“Do I look nice, Mommy?” Jillian asked, looking up at Viola.

“Yes, dear. You look nice.”


 “Hey! Jilly!’  Saige said, standing next to the dinning room table, near Molly’s hiding spot.


“Wanna piece of chocolate?”


“Yes!” Jillian exclaimed, rushing over to the table.


“Uh oh. They’re coming over to the table. I gotta run!” Molly thought as she saw the group heading toward her hiding spot.


She grabbed her camera, pencil, paper, and envelope, and started crawling.


Molly crawled under Isabelle’s bed. “Whew! I’m safe!” She thought.


“Now, to continue my letter. Viola can’t see me, so, she can’t object.” Molly whispered, picking up her pencil.


“Here you go,” Saige said, handing Jillian the chocolate Kiss. “Thank you!”  Jillian exclaimed, taking the Kiss.


“Jilly,” Izzy said in a sing-song voice,”Wanna see something funny?”


“I take that as a yes,” Isabelle announced, turning to face the mirror.


“TA DA!!” Isabelle exclaimed, turning around. She had taken the little birdie off of the lamp and stuck it in her hair! “I sure hope you like your new nest, little bird,” Izzy said, talking to the bird.


“He he, Isabelle, you are so funny!” Jillian said, laughing.


“Enough of that,” Caroline said with a meaningful look at Isabelle. “Let’s go outside now. We can have our Easter Egg Hunt!”


“Easter Egg Hunt!” Jillian squealed,”I’m going to get the most eggs!”

“Yes, let’s go outside! I want to do the Easter Hunt, too!” Emily said.


“Wait. Where. Is. Molly!?” Saige demanded.


“Here!” Molly shouted, crawling out from under the bed.


“Well, what are we waiting for? Let’s go have some real fun!” Tracy yelled. “Race ya!”

“I’ll be right there,” Isabelle said.

~And that is the end of part one!~
