Our 50th post and some cute photos!

These pictures were taken by Tante Peggy.
She takes divine photos, doesn't she?
She has tricks up her sleeve and Maman is trying her best to learn them.
You can check out more photos at THIS LINK. The page takes a while to load but it's worth it!

A lovely blog

We love to look at other Bleuette pictures online.
Maman also enjoys this pastime.
The above photo is from one of our favourite blogs:
It's all about life in the country.
The owner loves Tasha Tudor (a children's book illustrator) and also Bleuettes!
She has lots of nice pictures.
We really like this one!

Merry Christmas to all!

Christmas morning!
Oh we did have fun!
I got a Chatty Cathy doll and she says 11 things!
Zoe got a puppy!
Ellowyne got the nativity creche on top of the fireplace.
Helena got a pretty Christmas tea set.
Of course we also got candy and things too, but these are our best presents.
We hope you had a merry Christmas too!

Here is a beautiful picture of Tante Julie's girls in their lovely home.
Look at those gorgeous dresses!
Tante Julie didn't make any of them. Other Mamans made them.
I really, really like the dress on the right...the red plaid.
If you click on this picture you will see 2 Bleuettes with adorable Chatty Cathy dolls.
I do so wish I had one too! Maybe I'll get one on Christmas Day!

Christmas tree decorating

This picture was taken by Tante Ruth.
These are her darling girls, wearing beautiful Christmas dresses made by Tante Georgia.
There are many talented Mamans out there in Bleuette Land!
Zoe and I are putting this picture here so that our own Maman won't forget to save her dolly dollars for new dresses just like these, made by Tante Georgia.
Maman has been eyeing them all year, and so have we.
Maman can crochet, but not like this.
Aren't Tante Ruth's girls pretty?
Love from Yvette Marie and Zoe

A BSC Christmas Exchange Gift

This is me, Zoe. I am the model for the blue velvet dress for the BSC Exchange.
Maman had LOTS of fun putting this together for CindyJane.
Maman LOVES to go shopping!
Maman has SO MUCH stuff in her house that she did some of the shopping here at home!
Isn't that funny?
I love the blue velvet dress. It suited me to a T. I do so wish Maman would make me one.
It was soft and warm. It reminded her of her own blue velvet dresses she had when she was a little girl.
Anyhow I hope CindyJane's girls like this gift.

This gift was sent to Rochelle and her little Bleu, Pippi, in NY.
This was for the AADC exchange.
Maman had me be the model again. She promised that I would be rewarded.
I didn't mind modeling. It was sure lots of fun.

Here's a close up of me in the Christmas hankie PJs.
Who ever would have thought of making PJs out of a hankie? Tee hee.
We like to recycle in our house!
Hugs from Zoe.

These little girls are also our friends.
Here at the Bleu Manoir we have many, many nice friends!
This is Lexie and Loma. Their Maman's name is Valnora. Aren't those pretty names?
Lexie and Loma have done something we haven't done yet.
They visited Santa!
I really love their dresses. I wish I had a red hat or a red bonnet. I think I need to go and visit Santa and tell him so. But maybe not. That might be too greedy. Anyhow we asked Valnora's permission to use her lovely picture.
Love from Yvette Marie and the Bleu Gang
PS: Helena got really dizzy on the rocking horse today and was sent to bed with hardly any supper. Poor thing.

A wonderful Christmas gift!

 What an exciting day in the Bleu Manoir!
Today, December 14, is the day to open our Exchange Gift.
It came last week but Maman kept it hidden from us.
It's from Tante Pauline. She lives far away. She sent lovely things for all of us.
Maman has made the pictures extra large so you can see our nice things.
Ellowyne is happy with a pretty hat and sweater that we think Tante Pauline knit for us.
Maman can't knit. She says she can't handle 2 needles at one time.
Zoe loves the chipmunk puppet.
Helena is riding the really nice rocking horse.
And I'm wearing the gorgeous sailor suit and hat which is very well sewn.

Oh, it's a very happy Christmas indeed!
Merci beacoup, Tante Pauline!
Love from Yvette Marie and the Bleu Gang

A very beautiful Christmas bed!

This is one of our many friends.
Her name is Angelique.
Her Maman's name is Carol. She took this photo of Angelique resting in her pretty bedroom after a busy day of shopping.
Now this is just what I would like to do!
Only Maman hasn't found a bed for us just yet.
Tante Julie made the wonderful quilt, and Tante Marilee made the gorgeous coverlet.
I hopped up and down so much that Maman has printed off a copy of this picture, and she will try to make me a quilt like this. Of course it will be nice once I get a bed!
Angelique's Maman said we could put the photo here in our blog.

Posting a letter to Santa Claus

A little while ago it snowed, and Maman hurried and finished a gorgeous green velvet cape for me!
I also hurried and wrote a letter to Santa Claus and posted it in the nearest mail box.

This is the address for Santa Claus if you're mailing from Canada.
I do so hope I get what I want! If I do, I'll be sure to post about it here.
Love from Yvette Marie

We haven't posted in an AGE! Our calendars didn't sell, so we sent them off as gifts. Oh well, we'll have to think of other ways to make dolly money for new clothes and shoes! Maman kindly made me and Helena new Christmas hankie dresses. Today is St. Nicholas Day. Maman is half Dutch because she's married to a Dutch man, so she had us put out wooden shoes last night and today they were full of gifts for each of us!
There was a new mixer for me, 3 pairs of red shoes for Zoe, Helena and Ellowyne, 2 small porcelain angels for our bedroom, and a darling nutcracker made in Germany.

Here's a close up of our gifts. Aren't they wonderful?

I tried out the mixer right away, to get started on my Christmas gifts early.
I baked special cupcakes for the girls.
If you click on the picture, you can see my cupcakes up close.
The German nutcracker is watching me!
