Nikki’s New Bow
It was a fine day in Pinecone Valley. Nikki was going to go shopping with her friend, Samantha.
They began getting ready when Nikki noticed that she needed a bow. She had hoped she would see a bow at the mall.
When she went, she saw a hot pink bow, she LOVED it!
She wore it EVERYWHERE!
Lucy and Willowâ€™s Day at
Another beautiful day to go to the park. Lucy was hoping she would see a friend there.
She saw the perfect friend. He was a little grey mouse named, Willow.
They played on the slide, in the snow castle and a short game of hide-and-seek.
“Lucy!” called mother. It was time to go. “Willow!” called his mother. It was time for BOTH of them to go. They said “Good-bye” and left. They both knew they would see each other again.
Belle puts on a Play
Belle was so nervous for her first play, but she WOULD be a princess.
Her favorite thing about being a princess is trying on gowns and crowns!
She thought she would mess up everything. She practiced a lot until it was SHOWTIME!
She took a deep breath and the next thing she knew, she was on stage. She did a really good job and wanted to do it again.
Karissa, like most children, has a wonderful imagination that comes through when she plays with her toys. With encouragement from her mother, who is a book designer & publisher, she wrote down some of the stories that she acts out with her toys and combined that with her growing love of photography to bring the characters to life in a book that she can cherish and read over and over.
