New Hearts for Hearts Dolls {squeal}

For those of you who are doll fans{like me}, I have a special surprise!
 New Hearts for Hearts dolls! Yippee! I seriously was almost squealing with joy. Most of these pics & text are from dolldiaries & Facebook {Note: I am not on Facebook. Jessie, told me that H4H had stuff on FB, & I really wanted to see it, so I looked it up}. For those of you who are not familiar with the H4H line, here is a recap: {In these parentheses, I will add the names I hope to name them}

                                                Consuelo {Consuela} from Mexico

                                              Tipi {Thessalonica} from Laos

  Dell {Delia Amanda} from U.S.A.

                                           Lilian {Lilia} from Belarus

Rahel {Perrine} from Ethiopia

  Nahji {Nahji Jasmine} 

Sonali's adopted sister from India

 Aren't they all so sweet? Well, here are the new ones,

 Aren't they cute? Now, I would like to name 'Zelia' Rue, instead of Zelia. Full name = Ruenna. She could be Kathleen's 'lil 'sis.
                Any ideas?

Zelia from Brazil

 Does she look Brazilian? Ix-nay. Or actually in Pig Latin it would be 'Oynay'. 

Zelia resides in Brazil, where she is busy helping with housework and animals on the farm. After learning her country’s rainforest is quickly disappearing, Zelia knew she had to find a way to help protect it. She is encouraging her peers to plant the seed of a rainforest tree in an effort to preserve this essential habitat. Zelia wears a butterfly t-shirt, representing one of the endangered species from the rainforest.

 Rue from New Orleans
[Correction: Rue's name Lauryce {I think}, not Rue]

 Lauryce is a compassionate girl from New Orleans who saw the worst of Hurricane Katrina, but chose to rise above.  Starting a club with her friends called “LIL Hearts,” Rue is making sure no pets will ever be left behind again. Sporting cute shoes and a multi-colored dress, Rue is on her way to leading others in strength and confidence. (**NOTE – according to a comment left by a H4H representative, Rue may not be her name when she hits store shelves. They are still getting through the trademarking process)

Mosi from U.S. Arizona

 Mosi, a Navajo Native American from Arizona.

 Mosi lives on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, where she helps her mom and dad to keep the Navajo arts culture alive; notice the pretty blue feather in her hair and matching belt. Mosi is one who leads the way and though she struggles with challenges in school, she is working to overlook the differences among classmates and teach others the importance of standing up for what they believe in!

Mirror Mirror

Evil Queen: Mirror mirror, on the wall. Who is the fairest one of all?
Mirror: Snow White is the fairest one of all.
Evil Queen: Rats. Not again.

Yep, there's a new movie in theaters called 'Mirror Mirror'.
 It's about a princess named Snow, whose father was sent away, never to be seen again. Then Evil Queen here tries to rid herself of Snow. Then Snow meets dwarves with little swords. Enter handsome prince Andrew. He & Snow fight, and well, other stuff.
 I just drew most of the story from a review & the preview. It looks good. Snow White duels with Prince Charming. I love that. I bribed my 'lil sis to go see it, so we most likely will see it soon.

   What do you think on 'Mirror Mirror'? Does it look good to you?

~Princess Willow:)

P.S. Remember! If you are a christian, you are a princess. God is King, & you are his daughter. That makes you a princess.

About Captain America, the First Avenger

Now, for one of my favorite Avengers,
                        Captain America!
My dad took my sister{Darrion}and I to see it in theaters. It's the only Avenger movie we have seen in the theater. I was surprised that it was really clean, i.e., hardly any swear words, hardly any kissing, gross parts, disturbing parts, etc. It is also my favorite Avenger movie, period.

Chris Evans plays Steve Rogers, i.e. Captain America. You might remember Mr. Evans as Johnny in The Fantastic Four? Anyone? Ok, never mind again. Anyway, Steve is a pleasant young man, in WWII, though he is like two head shorter than most guys. And way skinnier. My dad, sister and I get tons of laughs whenever anyone says 'Someone get that guy a sandwich' or 'If you stick a needle in him it'll go right through!' Quite comical, because Chris had to have a body double for Mr. Tiny-Steve.
 Anyway, Stevie is a courageous young man, who keeps getting rejected from the army because he is not strong, or i.e. a weakling. He finally gets chosen by a good German army doctor, who thinks that he will make a great army dude. German Doctor is played by the guy who played the bad guy in 'Kit Kittredge'. He has a great accent. Anyway, at Military camp, Stevie is smart, and kind. When the Tough army guy{i.e. K from Men in Black}throws a fake grenade into their training, he throws himself on top of it. It's one of my favorite parts. Then Tough Army Guy says 'He's still skinny'. But Beautiful Army Girl notices. She's British, and very cute. Stevie, of course, like her.

                             Here they are when Stevie is taller.

So, then Stevie is taken to a secret army base in the US, then injected with some cool serum thing that enhances him. I mean, now he's got muscles. And he's bigger. Then an evil spy from Hydra{Hitler's mad scientist wing}shoots German Doctor, which is a sad scene as he dies, he points at Stevie's chest, indicating that he is proud of him. It almost makes me cry.  

Stevie is now much stronger, but is not used for combat. Not fun for Stevie. So Beautiful Army Girl offers to help him go save his best friend{we see Best Friend earlier in the movie, too}from Hydra.

Please remove your hat, Mr. Rogers. It is not a cool hat. Beautiful Army Girl should've set you straight on that. Anyway, he saves Best Friend. But then..... ok I gotta stop now. It's a secret. But it is a great movie, lots of action, a touch of romance, a great storyline, plus a great ending.
P.S. Yes, Steve and Beautiful Army Girl do eventually kiss.

About Thor the Avenger

Yes! The Avengers movie is coming! May 4th! Hey, did anyone notice that it's the same day as 'May the 4th Be with You' for Star Wars? Anyone? Ok, never mind:)
 But after searching for some photos, I finally found some of some of the Avengers. I will also explain some of what happens in the movies, and I'll try not to spoil it, k? Here we go.

Thor is based a lot on some Nordic{I think}myths. Except that in the movie Thor is not actually a 'god'. He's a prince about to get a really cool mallet-hammer-type thing.

There we go! He also at times wears an awesome red cape. But because he is a spoiled brat, and after an unfortunate mishap with an evil ice giant, he gets sent to Earth to get some character into his head. Now, his younger brother wants to be king.

Loki. *Shudder* To say that I don't like him is a major understatement. *Ugh*. Anyway, he tried to take over. He's the, er, 'god' of mischief and magic. Great I know.
               Doesn't he look slimy? And kinda 'snake-like'?

 Poor Thor. And Jane. That would be Natalie Portman. She's kind of awkward with Thor. I mean, just, yeah. Awkward. She's a scientist who ends up in the beginning, ahem, hitting Thor with her van by accident. Ok, if you want to know more, get 'Thor' off of Netflix and pop it into your Clearplay DVD player.
