Fun Day 8/3

HI all! Maria here with a new story! It is a series called *F.R.I.E.N.D.S.* To find out more about this series visit the *F.R.I.E.N.D.S.* page. Here is the first part of the first story.

Christina and the River Rescue *Part one*

Christina Wagner hurried down the long hall way of the house. She had to hurry because the human kids would be home from school at 3:00. She glanced at her watch, 2:30. She quickened her pace.

“Christina, Hurry!” yelled her cousin Beth from the bottom of the stairs.

“I’m coming.” Sigh Christina with a irritated edge to her voice as she slid down the stairs and raced into the kitchen. “Don’t be so inpatient!”

“I’m not inpatient! You’re the one who spilled the…..” Beth started to say but that is as far as she got because suddenly from behind them came a fierce voice.

“What is going on in here?!?!”

The dolls spun around to see Christina’s older sister Josie standing there.

“Oh, Josie!” Christina gasp. “You Scared me! I thought you what Amanda!”

Amanda was the human girl that owned Christina and her sisters. She had a sister Named Lizzy and Lizzy owned Beth and all of Beth’s sisters. That is why they were cousins.

“I didn’t know you could sound so fierce!” giggled Beth.

“Well I guess I can sound fierce if I want to” Grinned Josie “And you should be glad I am Not Amanda, or you would be in bigger trouble than you are now. So tell the problem.”

“She spilled the water!” wined Beth pointing at Christina.

“But she’s the one that pushed me!” Exclaimed Christina. The dolls argued for several minutes about who’s fault the spilled water really was. Josie shook her head.

“Girls stop it!” She finally said. “I have had it with your arguing! We don’t have time for it! The humans will be home from school soon and we still have to clean up this mess!”

Suddenly the dolls heard the family dog barking.

“Someone’s here!” Cried Beth.

“Quick. Up stairs!” Ordered Josie. The dolls ran up the stairs as fast as they could and crawled up into their spots on the dresser, where they stoop still listing.

“Josie?” Christina said in a whisper.

“shhh” hissed Josie.

“Josephine?” Christina said in desecration.

“What?” Ask Josie.

“What about the water? We didn’t get it cleaned up.” At that moment the dolls heard Donna, Amanda’s mom, yell

“Who spilt the water in here!?”

“We didn’t do it.” Amanda’s brothers said.

“I didn’t do it ether.” said Amanda

“I wasn’t even in the kitchen.” Answered Lizzy. Donna sighed and began to clean up the mess.

“I feel bad about this” Said Christina.

“Me too.” said Beth. “I am sorry I pushed you.”

“That’s ok” answered Christina.

“Girls I am proud of you. Lets Go get some ice cream.” Josie Said.

“Yay! Ice cream!” Beth Shouted

“Shhh” Christina said. “Think I hear someone.” The dolls froze in place as One of the human boys walked past the door.

“Whew. That was close! Maybe we should wait till later.” Christina said.

“I think we can make it down.” said Beth. “come on lets Go!”

"OK" said Josie as the dolls slid of the dresser and went down the hall, ducking behind things if they thought that someone might be coming. Soon they were in the basement where the freezer was. Josie held open the lid and Christina and Beth crawled in.

"Brr it's cold in here. I will have to remember to bring my shoes next time." Beth said as she stepped of an ice pack. Christina rolled her eyes. Suddenly the doll heard talking so Christina and Beth dove under a box of fish and Josie shut the lid and hid behind the freezer.

"I can't believe this!" said Amanda excitedly as she and Lizzy walked down into the basement.

"We actually get to go camping this summer!"

"I know" said Lizzy and hem more to her self than to Amanda said "I hope we get to take some of the dolls." but Amanda rambled on "Mom said that there was other family's coming but she didn't say who. I hope the Hawbakers are one of them."

"I want the Castles and Royers to come." said Lizzy reaching into the freezer for and ice pop and coming dangerously close to the dolls that where in hiding.

"I guess we will have to wait and see." said Amanda as the girls walked back up into the kitchen with their ice pops. As soon as the girls was gone Josie ran over and opened the lid.

"Are you guys OK?" she ask.

"Yea we are fine." said Beth

"Oh boy, oh boy!" exclaimed Christina "I hope I get to go!"

"You can't" Beth said

"Why not!" Christina ask as she started to look like she might cry. "Because it's to cold, you now u can't go camping in February!" answered Beth.

"Oh you silly goose!" Christina said a look of relief washing over her face "You really had me going there for a moment!" all the girls laughed as they headed back up stairs with their ice cream.

I hope you enjoyed the first part of this story. I know this part isn't that exciting it will get better I promise! See you next week!

Ask Abbie 7/30

Hi! Abbie Here! And in celebration of Ruthie's Birthday On Thursday we have Question about birthday party's.

Dear Abbie,
For my birthday I am inviting two of my friends over. But one Really, really hates the other girl. How can i make them be the best of friends?
In The Middle

You can't! If you really don't think they will get along, don't risk ruining your birthday by forcing bickering buds together. instead spend time with each of them separately. Go out with one  of them during the day and invite to other one over for a sleepover that night. You'll have a much happier birthday that way.

Verse Of The Week 7/28

Hiyah! Christina here and this weeks Verse is from Psalms 10

 10:1 ¶ Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
 2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
 5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
 6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
 8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
 9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
 10 He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
 11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
 12 ¶ Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
 13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.
 14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
 15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
 16 The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
 17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
 18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

Love Yah Lots!
