When I went to see Evil Twin back in October (and we went to Fort Necessity), I figured that would be the last trip until spring. You see, Evil Twin lives wayyyyyy back in the country, up on a huge hill and getting to her house when there is snow on the ground isn’t always easy. But, here in the Northeast, we are having crazy warm weather at the moment, so I decided I would make a holiday trip to visit. Fiona and Kanani asked if they could come along since they haven’t had the chance to meet the girls, so I told them sure!
Fiona and Trudy hit it off instantly, and in the process of the conversation, Fiona showed Trudy that she had gotten her ears pierced. Trudy said that she wished she could do hers, she had pierced Raynia’s ears, but wasn’t brave enough to do her own. Fiona excitedly said “I know how to do it, I’ve done a couple of my friends!” Next thing we knew, they were getting set up so Fiona could pierce Trudy’s ears…
“TA DA!!! How do you like them?”
“I love it!” replied Trudy. “I’ll be right back though, I gave you the wrong earrings, oops! I’ll need to switch these out, if you can help me.”
Trudy got the other earrings and Fiona switched them out. While they had been doing this, Fiona had commented that she needed her hair trimmed, so Trudy told her she could do it for her since she was nice enough to help her with the ear piercing. “I trim Raynia’s hair for her all the time, she doesn’t like it to get very long because it gets in her face when she’s playing soccer.”
“You have such nice hair” said Trudy. “I can see what you mean though about the ends, we’ll get that all fixed up.”
Trudy combed and trimmed and pulled hair up out of the way…
“Here you are, what do you think?” Fiona hesitated. “Well, it’s, um…different?!” Trudy started to laugh. “I’m just kidding around, that’s just how I have it pulled up to keep what I’ve already trimmed out of the way!” Fiona laughed too. “You had me worried!”
After they were done with their beauty shop session, it was time to finish trimming the tree. The girls had done most of it already, but they still had some ornaments that needed to be put on.
After dinner, we headed home. It was nice to see everyone before the holiday, we probably won’t see them again until April. Before we left, we made sure to get a picture of all of the girls together.
Fiona and Kanani had a great time getting to meet the whole gang. Merry Christmas from Evil Twin and her gang!
If you look closely, you can see that Fiona and Trudy aren’t wearing American Girl earrings. Truthfully, they are wearing earrings that belong to us! How did we do it? Well, it’s really pretty easy. The idea of a doll being able to wear regular earrings had crossed my mind before, but I wasn’t sure what to use to be sure they would fit okay. Evil Twin came across a video on YouTube and it works great! Just be careful, and if you are a child, be sure to get permission before trying this, as well as some help. This does require a certain amount of strength.
