Happy New Year! (By Julie)

Happy New Year everyone! We can't believe it's 2011 already! This year has just gone by so fast, but as they say... "Time flies when you're having fun!" To kick off the new year, me and my Bffs had a big new years bash! We started with our annual new years parade around the neigborhood. It was a lot of fun to be silly and delight the neigbors! Then, Kaya went up into the attic, and got down the old board games. We chuckled all through the old favorites like Monopoly, Twister, and Scrabble. Who knew how many made up words were out there? Or how many of us have never taken gymnastics class by the looks of it during Twister! The point is, it was a lot of fun! Then, we decided to do each other's hair. You should have seen some of the crazy hairstyles we came up with!

Do you think you could come up with a cool hairstyle? Well, here's your chance! Use your creative skills, elastics, and ribbons to dezign a new unique hairstlyle! When you're done, please send us a picture of your doll wearing this style like the ones we took of ourselves. Remember, we want to see what YOU can come up with! Not a professional hairstylist. Email your photos to

All entries sent in will be showcased in a post, but the overall winner will have their hairstyle added to the snazz salon styles!

All entries to this contest are due by February 1st

(Please see our snazz salon section by clicking on the link that says snazz salon right under our AG Gossip logo.)

After the hairstyles, we were having so much fun that we didn't realize that it was almost midnight: time to celebrate! Marisol got the new years box from the garage, and we all had fun getting out the noisemakers, hats, and kit's favorite: the pots and pans!

5...4...3...2...1... Happy New Year!

The pots and pans clanged! The noisemakers boomed, and rattled with a sense of energy. And our screams could be heard all the way from China! The only dissapointment was when Rebecca's party cracker only had a plastic screw set inside... but we all thought it was fun! Then, we began to talk, each of us shared our new years resolutions.

Nikki went first. She decided to do the dishes more often when she was asked. Josefina resolved to volunteer at the animal shelter. Kit paused for a moment to think, but then resolved to stop taping dirty socks onto Josefina's prized lamp. Samantha said she would try to get a better grade in history. Julie decided to tend to her garden more often. Kaya decided she would learn to make the only dessert she didn't know how to make: Bannana's Foster baked alaska! Carely decided to guard her spatulas better, and not to let her best one be kidnapped by Kit again! Felicety decided to give free horseback lessons to the kids at the local orphanage. Rebecca resolved to do some community service and pick up trash on the highway. Molly plans on practicing her ukelele more often then once a year. Angela wants to get rid of her many nighttime water cups that haven't seen the kitchen (or the dishwasher) for years! Marisol plans to knit scarves for the needy. Jessica resolves to do her own laundry from now on insted of dumping her stinky clothes onto Kaya's pile. Kirsten plans to set up a fundraiser to help endangered White Tigers. She plans to raise 1 million dollars. Chrissa plans to swim 100 laps.

What are your resolutions or goals for the New Years?
