Mimi and the Gift Exchange-A Photo Story

23 Dec

Hi!

Today I’m just having a lazy day at home, but I can’t wait for Christmas Eve tomorrow! (Even as I write this post, I’m listening to holiday music:)) Mimi wanted to join in the fun too, so she planned a gift exchange with her friends…

IMG_4103Today, Mimi and her friend Mia are exchanging gifts.

IMG_4106Unfortunately, Mimi had no idea what to get her friend!

IMG_4107“Hmmm…” Mimi thought, “What should I get Mia?” She pondered this for a while until she had a brilliant idea! “I’ll make Mia a scarf!” Mimi ran off to gather some supplies before coming back to begin.

IMG_4108Turns out making a scarf is a lot harder than Mimi thought…

IMG_4111“I know! I’ll make her cookies instead!” Mimi grabbed her over-sized chef hat and went to pick out a recipe. “It’ll be easy to make some peanut butter cookies,” She decided.

IMG_4113It wasn’t as easy as she thought…half of the cookies were burnt, and the other half didn’t taste good at all!

IMG_4117“Now what do I do?” Mimi asked. She slumped down on her rug, and thought hard for a moment. “Wait! If I go now, I’ll have just enough time to go to the toy store, and get back before Mia comes over.” She ran off.

IMG_4118“Perfect!” Mimi announced when she got back to her house. She slid a board game onto the floor happily.

IMG_4120But just as Mimi went to go and sit, her leg got caught on the cover of the box…

IMG_4121Suddenly the cards flew all over Mimi’s bedroom, and then she heard a loud knock on the door. “Oh no! Mia’s here, and I don’t have enough time to clean all of the cards up!”

IMG_4127In walked Mia, and Mimi got even more worried. “Hi,” she sighed. “Hey!” Mia replied, a lot more cheerfully. “Ready to see your gift?” Mimi nodded up and down slowly, “Here you go!” Mimi tore open the box and saw a Christmas tree ornament of herself!

IMG_4128“I love it!” Mimi exclaimed, “but all of my presents for you didn’t work out…” She continued to tell Mia all about the present mishaps. “That’s okay,” Mia said, hugging Mimi. “It’s so nice of you to try again and again to get me a gift.”

IMG_4131“I still feel really bad.” Mimi told her friend. “It’s okay! How about we have some hot cocoa and watch a holiday movie instead of exchanging gifts?” Mimi smiled, and went into the kitchen to grab some mugs and marshmallows.

IMG_4133Together Mimi and Mia snuggled up in Mimi’s room and watched all their favorite Christmas specials.

Mimi and the Haunted Bedroom-(The Spooky Adventures of Lulu, Day 3)

30 Oct

Hi!

Have you liked the Spooky Adventures of Lulu posts so far? (I personally think that they are super fun to write!) And as you might have noticed, all of my Halloween-themed posts so far have involved ghosts, so of course Mimi had to join in the fun!

IMG_3741Today, Mimi was working on her Halloween costume…

IMG_3744As she added the finishing touches, Mimi smiled and stuffed the costume into her bag. “Oh! I can’t wait to show Lavender!” And with that, Mimi ran out of her bedroom so she could meet her friend.

IMG_3746Little did Mimi know that a very intense game of tag was going on between one of her brothers and their friend Sir Pugs A Lot…and that game of tag was making its way into her bedroom.

IMG_3749As Sir Pugs A Lot dashed around all of Mimi’s fluffy pink things, he turned around for a second…and then collided with Mimi’s favorite statue, (Which was of herself :) ) and heard a cracking noise echo throughout the room.

IMG_3753“Quick,” Moonlight the cat exclaimed. “Mimi’s coming back!” At that very moment, Mimi skipped through the doorway and put her things on the chair, without even noticing that there was a cat and a dog hiding behind it.

IMG_3754That’s when Mimi turned around. “Oh no! My favorite statue!!! And it was of myself!” She sobbed, seeing the broken object lying on the pink rug. “Who would do this?!” And then, the ghost theory crossed her mind.

IMG_3760“My bedroom is haunted!!” Mimi said aloud, confirming her thoughts to herself. “I have to tell Lavender!”

IMG_3764While Mimi ran back to her friend’s house, Moonlight and Sir Pugs A Lot were coming up with a plan. “Okay, so do we tell Mimi I broke the statue-” “No!” “Oh..um…well then we could tell her that..um..”

IMG_3767But their planning time had run out, because two giggling voices that belonged to Mimi and Lavendar were getting louder and louder, so of course…instead of finding a better hiding spot…they jumped behind the chair again…without knowing that Mimi’s basket was being dragged by Moonlight’s tail.

IMG_3768“I think my bedroom is haunted!” Mimi was telling Lavendar excitedly when they came walking in. Despite Lavendar’s doubtful expression, Mimi was sure there was still a ghost. “See…now my basket is gone too!”

IMG_3770“Your room isn’t haunted! There are just some annoying boys in it!” Lavendar declared, walking over to the chair to reveal Moonlight and Sir Pugs A Lot’s hiding spot.

IMG_3772“Why are you in my room?!” “Did you break her statue?” “No, Sir Pugs A Lot did!” “Hey!” And so, the arguing went on for some time until a mysterious voice said…

IMG_3775“Boo!”

IMG_3777“See, I told you my room was haunted!” Mimi said as everyone started running around frantically.

IMG_3779Mimi hopes that you enjoyed her latest adventure:)

Mimi Plays Hide and Go Seek!-A Photo Story

14 Oct

Hi!

Yesterday I noticed that I haven’t done a Mimi photo story in forever, so I decided I would grab some photos of Mimi and her friends playing hide-and-go-see outside…

IMG_3689Today Mimi, Julie, Zig Zag, and Lizzie (who I made myself this afternoon with a craft kit!) are playing hide-and-go-seek.

IMG_3692Since Mimi was seeking first, she closed her eyes and began to count in a loud voice as her friends ran away.

IMG_3696“Oh! I don’t know where to hide!” Lizzie fretted, looking around frantically. “Um…maybe I’ll blend in!” She exclaimed as she plopped down in the grass and tried to stay as still as possible even though her vibrant pink color could be easily seen from faraway.

IMG_3697Meanwhile, on the other side of the yard, Zig Zag was looking around for the perfect place to hide. “Hmmm…I’ll just stay behind this tree. It’s very comfortable.” He decided with a shrug.

IMG_3701Nearby, Julie was having a bit of trouble trying to find a good hiding spot. “Ugh! Too small!”

IMG_3703“Too thin!”

IMG_3704“Oh! Perfect!” She announced as she dove behind the stone vase.

IMG_3705After a few minutes of counting, Mimi was finally ready, and so she announced, “Ready or not, here I come!”

IMG_3706Walking as slowly and quietly as she could, Mimi started to walk near where Lizzie lay on the grass. Lizzie held her breath as Mimi came closer and closer, but released it with a laugh when Mimi walked straight pass her.

IMG_3709Next, Mimi went over to the tree where Zig Zag was currently hiding…

IMG_3713Zig Zag turned away and tried to cover himself up with the crinkly leaves, but he didn’t need to. Mimi simply looked both ways, and missed her friend entirely.

IMG_3717Finally, Mimi started to run to where Julie was hiding….and then she ran in the totally wrong direction.

IMG_3719After several attempts to find her friends, Mimi called out, “I give up! You guys are really good at hiding!”

IMG_3722Julie, Zig Zag, and Lizzie quickly came over to where Mimi was standing. “You do know that we were in pretty obvious hiding spots, right?” Zig Zag inquired. “Oh.” Mimi giggled. “Do you want to play again?”

Hope you enjoyed Mimi’s latest photo story!

Mimi The Super Spy-All About Mimi Week!

26 Aug

Slide1So…hasn’t this week been so fun?! I’ve loved coming up with ideas for all of Mimi’s stories, and this has to be one of my favorites of All About Mimi Week! Anyways, today, Mimi decided to become a…

IMG_3427Super Spy!

IMG_3431“Oh! Hi, Pippaloo!” Mimi said to her friend who she had invited over to see her headquarters. “Welcome to my Super Secret Headquarters!” “I like the name. Subtle.” Pippaloo answered, looking around. “Anyways, do you want to be my super secret spy partner?” Mimi asked eagerly. “Okay!”

IMG_3435“So, our case today is all about cookies!” “Cookies?” Pippaloo wondered, taking a seat next to the computer. “Quacky the Ladybug’s evil scheme is to steal all of the world’s cookies!” Mimi announced dramatically. “Wait, what kind of name is Quacky?” “A lovable fluffy ladybug’s of course!” Mimi told her, receiving a shrug in reply.

IMG_3440Meanwhile, at Quacky the Ladybug’s house, a party was being thrown to celebrate the success of the cookie plan! Little did everyone know, Mimi and Pippaloo were about to sneak in…

IMG_3442“Pippaloo? Pippaloo?” Mimi whispered as she dangled above the room below. “Where are you?”

IMG_3445“Right here!” Pippaloo breathed heavily. “Huh?” “I got stuck in a bush while we were climbing up the wall.” She leaned back to grab her water, and suddenly came tumbling down!

IMG_3447“Oops!” Was all Pippaloo could manage to say. “Who are you?” Quacky asked rushing over.

IMG_3450“W-A-A-A-A-A-I-I-I-T-T-T-T-T-T!” Mimi called as she came falling down too. “And to answer your question, we are the people who are here to stop your evil plan!”

IMG_3454“Well how are you going to do that?” Quacky demanded. “I don’t know!” Mimi exclaimed. “But I’m very angry, because I really like cookies, and I want one right now, but I can’t have one because you took them all!” She humphed.

IMG_3457“Hey!” Pippaloo said, walking over to Mimi, and whispering a plan into her ear. “Oh, okay!” Mimi nodded before turning to Quacky. “If you don’t return the cookies, we will make you eat vegetables!” Quacky turned, looking horrified. “NO!!!”

IMG_3459“Nice job.” Mimi congratulated her friend.

IMG_3437The End. :)

Mimi The Baker-All About Mimi Week

24 Aug

Slide1Don’t you just love sweet treats? Well, Mimi sure does! So it was no surprise when she decided to open up her own bakery…

IMG_3403With her matching apron, and counter stocked with sweet goodies, Mimi was prepared for her bakery to open!

IMG_3407Very soon her buddy Nellie dropped by to place an order. “I need 40 cupcakes by the end of the day,” Nellie told Mimi, who nodded happily. “I can make 4 cupcakes in a day, easy!” Mimi said cheerfully, as her friend left to finish her errands.

IMG_3408Mimi got to work right away, mixing, and pouring all the ingredients into a large bowl, creating the perfect batter.

IMG_3412“I’ll just pop these in the oven, and then I’m done!” Mimi shoved her pan into the hot oven with a “clink!”

IMG_3413About an hour later, the timer rang through the bakery, and Mimi hurried to pull her cupcakes out of the oven before they burned. She plopped them down on the counter with a smile. Mimi had made possibly the most delicious-looking cupcakes in the world!

IMG_3415Wanting them to be ready before Nellie came back, Mimi slipped the cupcakes onto a napkin and put them inside one of her delivery boxes.

IMG_3421“Here you go!” Mimi slid the box over to Nellie, who had just arrived, and was eager to see Mimi’s sweets. “Um…Mimi? I sort of asked for 40 cupcakes…not 4.” Mimi glanced over at the pad on the counter, where she had written the order. “Oops! But, don’t worry! Just give me about an hour!” And with that, She went to work.

IMG_3424The end! :)

Mimi The Stylist-All About Mimi Week

23 Aug

Slide1Hi everyone! It’s me, Mimi, posting! So far this has been a super fun week, and so today I thought I would try something new…

IMG_3384I decided to become a hair stylist! After spending all morning getting supplies, figuring out what I was supposed to do do, and coming up with a fun name, I was ready!

IMG_3387By lunchtime, my amazing hair salon, Puurfect Styles, (see what I did there?) was open, and I had already got my first customer.

IMG_3388“Hi Fifi!” I exclaimed happily, grabbing my friend, Fifi The Pink Poodle a styling cape. “What kind of style do you want today?” After thinking for a few moments, Fifi finally came up with an answer. “Since I usually get it curled, how about today, you give me something totally new!”

IMG_3390I worked like lighting, snipping and styling away until I had finally pulled the last bow tight enough. “Ta-da!” I spread my arms out to show off my masterpiece. “Um…thanks…” Fifi said, pulling at the ribbons as she trudged out the door. (Some people can be tough critics!)

IMG_3394Soon, Herald the Unicorn stopped by, and I knew just what to do with his tangled fur. It was going to be the best style anyone had ever seen!

IMG_3395“And, done!” I announced, laying down my brush. “How do you like it? The ribbons match your horn!” Herald shrugged, and straightened his bow tie before leaving. (Okay! Maybe it wasn’t my best work, but I still think I’m pretty good at this hair styling thing.)

IMG_3397My last customer of the day was French Minnie, who I thought actually ended up looking pretty nice! (And I think she thought so to, because she actually took one of my free hair style coupons!)

IMG_3400After a long day, I decided to head home. Maybe, tomorrow I’ll turn my hair salon into a bakery…now that would be fun…and delicious!

Well bye for now!

Mimi The Trapeze Artist-All About Mimi Week

21 Aug

Slide1I hope you enjoyed Mimi’s first pizza making adventure this week! Today Mimi decided to try something very new, along with her buddy Lavender…

IMG_3336Today, Mimi became a trapeze artist!

IMG_3335The nice summer weather was perfect for Mimi to try out her newest talent. “Hey Lavender! Are you getting just as dizzy as me?” Mimi called to her friend as she swung back and forth.

IMG_3338“Nope! I’m simply grinning from ear to ear!” Lavender replied, laughing.

IMG_3341“You know what?” Mimi asked. “This isn’t as fun as I thought it would be.” “It’s probably because we don’t know how to do any of those cool tricks yet.” “Oh well, I think we’ve been swinging here for long enough! Want a snack?” Mimi commented as she struggled to get down.

IMG_3344“Um…Mimi? I’m stuck.” Lavender sighed.

IMG_3337“Well, it looks like we’ll be hanging around for a while!”
