A special post from Robinette!

My name is Robinette.
I came from Ruby Red Galleria far away in Hong Kong.
Maman discovered me at Rowbear Show in California.
I am sooooo glad she did!
I have had Big Adventures since she found me.
Maman made the collage.
Isn't it just so pretty?
We are at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria BC.
They are so beautiful.
This is Maman's very first collage.
Hugs from Robinette!

PART 4 of my Big Trip to California Story

Maman and I sure had fun in California.
It is a very busy place.
Maman had sore feet each day. Sometimes she soaked them in the hot tub.
This picture shows the lovely things the ladies from the BSC club donated to the Helper Room.
Maman bought tickets to try to win this but she didn't.
Maman was supposed to donate a nightie but she didn't get it finished in time.
I am wearing it down below to Claire's PJ party.

Maman bought many lovely new friends for me at the salesroom.
I don't mind at all.

Here is Marielle.
She is gorgeous!
Everything is made in France.
I especially love her hat and purse.
She came from Sylvie Bravot's booth.

Here I am arriving at the PJ party.

We are having fun playing card games.
Marianna had already left and gone to bed.

PART 3 of my Big Trip to California Story.

Oh, here is just one more picture of me and Maman in Disneyland!
It was sooooo exciting on Tom Sawyer's Island. There was just so much to do!
I really do wish that Madeline would have come with me.
This was a very fun wiggly bridge!

Tuesday, July 26 was a fun day!
Maman and I got to meet so many other Mamans and their Bleuettes in Tante Marie's room.
Someone even shared delicious brownies with us.
Here we all are lined up for a picture.
I cannot remember everyone's name but you can see me and Madeline!

The Bleuette wearing the white dress is very old.

These beauties are also very old. They belong to Tante Laurie.

Here I am all dressed up to meet Admiral Claire! We call her that because she always wears her hat and she was Admiral for last year's camp and she does not let us forget it!
Isn't that funny? She is very nice.

Tante Nicki made all these wonderful clothes.
Her Bleuette is so lucky.

We only met for one hour.
It was very rushed but so much fun!

Here I am meeting Marianna.
She belongs to Tante Marie.
The other little girl is a Heidi Pluszok. I don't think I spelled that right.
It was a fun afternoon!

PART TWO of my Big Trip to California Story.

I forgot to put this in the first part of my story.
This is me with my carry on luggage.
Maman made something special for me. She put in little crayons and a Beccassine colouring book so I wouldn't be bored on the big plane.
This is our very nice hotel room on the 12th floor.

Here I am on Tom Sawyer's Island exploring the caves.
Madeline did not want to come here.
I still had fun, but it would have been much more fun with her.

Here we are outside Adventure Land.
Maman took a lot of pictures.
This was sure a fun place.

I really liked the Tiki Room!

This is Maman's tradition.
She and Tante Linda always come here for their picture.

I liked to practise by these boats.
I thought I was going on a big boat camping trip but I will let Miss Resin go instead.
It would be such fun if Admiral Claire's camp was on this pirate boat!

Maman got really carried away with her purchases in the UFDC salesroom!
Here is lots of silk ribbon, shoes, books, a lovely silk dress, and 2 babies!
I will write more about our trip later.
Love from Yvette Marie xoxoxo

The story of my Big Trip to UFDC and Disneyland! PART ONE

Maman and I had a great adventure last week!
On Saturday July 23, 2011, we took a big plane down to Anaheim, California.
The first thing Maman did was get me out of the hot suitcase and put me near the pool and the palm trees.
Maman and I love palm trees!

Maman was busy signing up for UFDC convention on Saturday night.
Then she ran to the Rowbear Show next door.
She bought something special there which you can see in the last photo.
On Sunday we all went to Disneyland!
It was a beautiful HOT day. Maman could not stop staring at the blue sky.
Here I am listening to the band at 10:30 am.

Maman made this dress just for me.
I even have mouse ears.

My bestest friend Madeline came with us. Her maman made her dress.
Later on she found some mouse ears too.
Aren't we cute?
Many people watched us having fun.

Maman likes to take photos of things way up high.

Here we are at night time, resting with some new friends!
Miss Resin in the fancy dress and hat has come home with us.
Maman bought her and the lovely bonnet I am wearing on Saturday night.
She did not waste any time buying things on her list.
Tante Linda bought the other Miss Resin and she won the little doll for a door prize.

Here are Maman's purchases on the very first night.

Here I am with Miss Resin.
Maman bought me a darling little Heidi Ott doll, and she bought my new sister an admiral bear to match her new clothes.
We had so much fun in California!
