Happy New Year!

Hey, everyone. Mia here!

Today Abbey and Chloe went outside to take some pictures of me with the new camera, while I went skating and played in the snow. I feel so lucky, because I was the first doll to be photographed with the new camera.

Tonight is New Year's Eve! I'm so excited. Abbey and Chloe are going to be taking more photos this year, because of the new camera. So, that means: more blogging than last year! So, what are you doing for New Years Eve? I'm going to go out to the pond with Zoe, Hayden, and Quinn and have a hockey game that lasts "from one year to the next". ^_^

Here are some photos from my day:


I love how the wind blows through my hair when I skate.

Chloe's frozen eyelashes.
(Side note from A&C: Yes, it really does get that cold here.)

Happy New Year, Everybody!

I Come With News!

Hey, everyone!


Abbey here. Merry Christmas! I hope your day is filled with fun, family, and food. ^_^

I come with news! I got...

A new camera. A T2i! Yes, a Canon EOS Digital Rebel T2i! I'm so, so thrilled. I absolutely love it. Now, you're probably wondering "What? Don't you (and Chloe) share a perfectly nice Canon Rebel XS?". Okay, here's the story. The Canon Rebel XS is our Dad's (some of you already know that), and we only got to use it every other weekend. Why? Because we don't live in the same town as our Dad. This is why our blog and YouTube channel weren't really updated all that frequently. And we're really sorry about that, by the way.

Well, fast-forward to the future, and I finally have my very own DSLR. I saved up for a long time, and got some money for a Christmas present from a few different family members (Thank-You!). Also, I suppose this would probably be a good time to tell you that I do most of the photography. A lot of you have been asking about that, and every time you mention it, I giggle at the thought of Chloe and I both trying to look through the camera's viewfinder at the same time:

"Oh! I see! I see it! Do you see it?"

"Yeah! Ready? You press the shutter button on three..."

"1, 2..."

"Oh. Wait. Nope. I can't see it anymore."

Haha! But don't worry, Chloe still helps with the blog. She's just not really that into photography. However, she comes up with great ideas, helps set up for shoots, and other things that just wouldn't be the same without her. So, just think of me as the "Director of Photography". ^_^

Okay, enough rambling. The point is: there will be plenty more blog posts, Flickr updates, and YouTube videos from us. Promise. :)

Much love,


PS. (From both of us) Thank-you so much for all of your nice comments and messages, even when we weren't posting that much. You're amazing. :)

PPS. Happy Holidays! :)

Hello, Friends!

Hey, everyone! We're blogging from the ski lodge. :)

We're really sorry we haven't been posting all that much. But, we just wanted to say that we have a (really exciting) surprise coming. Like, really exciting. Like, really. Really. Really exciting.

Okay, enough of that. How are you all enjoying your holidays? Are you on Christmas Break? If you are, lucky you! :) We get off on the twenty-second. If you are on Christmas Break, tell us what you've done so far, or what you're planning on doing!

Now, so we don't spoil the exciting surprise, take a look at this photo, if you'd like. Apparently, it was on Flickr's 'Explore'! Thank-you, Flickr people. :)

Happy Holidays! {Explored}

Bye! It's time for us to hit the slopes!

Abbey & Chloe

PS. Did we mention that the surprise is... exciting? ^_^

PPS. Go watch Sitara's New Music Video. Right now.
