It is a bit of a well kept secret, but St. Nicholas does have many assistants on Christmas night, and our Lily just happens to be one of them! But unlike Santa, Lily's sleigh is pulled by a Cardinal (of the avian type) - a special Cardinal who sparkles and flies at night!
Close to a full moon, so this made navigation easier this year. Lily's sleigh is empty and she is on her way home to Calcrit House in these pictures. I hope Santa, Lily or one of his other assistants brought happiness to your house this morning?! Merry Christmas from R. and from Lily and birdie too!!!!
(Lily is so preoccupied with moving her stuff that she told me it was OK if I wrote the copy for this post. Wow - I'm honored. Right.)
Princess Lily decided the best folk to help her move would be members of her own ball jointed clan, so Sweet Pea (a Luts Cutie Delf) and Yoi (a Secretdoll Yoi [that makes sense, right?]) volunteered for duty. I supplied the Radio Flyer.
First load of stuff. Yoi allowed Lily to hitch a ride.
Fifth load of stuff!! It just keeps coming!!
All the stuff, out of storage. "But where will it ALL go?? And how will we get it in there???"
Lily's natural optimism hasn't quite rubbed off on Sweet Pea. Don't worry Sweet Pea!!
This is my magic house!! All I do is snap my fingers and it opens wide!! How great is that?! OK, "R", you can take over again. Thanks.
Yoi lifts the piano up to the music room.
Sweet Pea and Yoi together lift the bed into the bedroom. Lily was kind enough to not try and ride up on it! Watch it!!!
Phew! All done. Yoi and Sweet Pea are pooped. But Lily has endless energy and is ready for a rocking horse rodeo.
So we leave Lily to settle in to her new house. "Why no cats?" you ask. Lily isn't fond of cats - she feels they look upon her crunchy snack material. She might be right! But Lily, leaving a noxious mushroom on your doorstep to tempt them to a poisoned death isn't very nice, eh?
Being someone's crunchy snack isn't very "nice" either!!!!
Well, let's agree to not kill the cats, OK??
Watch out cats!! R.
Update one day later:
Hey there friends of Lilyland! I traded three magic beans for Polly Pocket's car (that Polly, she'll believe anything you tell her!) and then worked some magic under the hood.
I've invited ABC to go for a spin with me.
Just listen to that engine purr!! What, you can't hear it?? Well fiddle around with that speaker icon down there in the corner of your computer screen!
Oh sorry ABC, I hope that wasn't a cousin or something who just flew into the windshield?? --**^. *~~^^ #*##~?? What? Because I said you can be Thelma and I'll be Louise. *%^^ # **+~ **--++>>! Oh, alright, you can be Louise and I'll be Thelma.
VRROOOOOMMMMMM!!!!!!!! Fiscal cliff, here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LILY!!!!!! For heavens sake, what are you trying to do????
Just ABC and I out for a little spin, that's all!
You were driving off the edge of the table from where I stand!!!
No worries - we're both wearing our seat belts.
Lily, just turn the car around please and don't try to drive off the the table! I was looking for you to tell you that I've finished putting in the windows in Calcrit House so you can now get the cat burglar rider on your home insurance policy so ..... you can move in any time you want!
Hot dog!! I'll call up my friends to help me move furniture as soon as I finish this little car trip.
Call your friends NOW - I say you've already finished this "trip"!!!
Gloomy gus! Spoil sport!!!
Lily Robgoblin, fairy spirit extraordinaire, friend to crickets, lover of mushrooms, much more interesting than any mere over-sized doll, I'll have you know!
