All the dolls were at home, doing — well, they weren’t really doing anything. Until the doorbell rang. Kanani hopped up and ran to see who it was.
The other dolls heard some talking and couldn’t tell what was going, until Kanani came back with a girl they had never seen before.
“Hey everyone!” Kanani yelled for everyone to hear, “This is Olive. Mom said she’s come to stay with us for a week!”
“Thank you for letting me stay with you,” Olive said.
“I don’t mean to be rude, but shouldn’t there be another girl here?” Olive asked.
Jamie laughed, “Yes, Kaya is sleeping. She almost always takes a nap. We don’t have to be very quiet; she can sleep through anything. Well, I’m so glad you’ve come to stay with us. Now I have a curly-haired friend!”
“Why is that dog being so loud?” Olive asked, staring at Isabelle, who was atop Pepper, who was running around the kitchen table.
“That’s mini Isabelle. She likes to play rodeo,” Kanani said, “Mini Isabelle, please stop.”
Mini Isabelle hopped off and ran over to Olive. “It’s nice to meet you! I’m glad you came to stay.” Mini Isabelle said.
My friend let me borrow her new doll so I could do her hair. What pretty curls. Thank you! We are excited that you came to stay for a week, Olive!
