Halloween…………

Hi! How did you like my trip pictures so far? Day 4 will be posted on Kiki Through the Looking-Glass (this blog)  There was nothing to take pictures of on Day 5, and the day we left. So, Day 4 will be the last day 😦

Ok, back to the post! I read someone’s blog that said Halloween is not Evil. I completely disagree. They said the day is just about remembering the dead nothing evil. Before I get to the history background, Would you invite Jesus to go Trick or Treating with you? I mean seriously think about it! Would you? Do you think he’d have as much fun as you do? Do you think he’d celebrate a holiday that wasn’t in the bible? The answer is no. Here are some bible verses that back up my answer.

 Leviticus 19:31  ‘Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.  

Leviticus 20:27  ‘Now a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their blood guiltiness is upon them

Deuteronomy 18: 10-13 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.”You shall be blameless before the LORD your God.



Halloween, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, can be traced back about 2,000 years to a pre-Christian Celtic festival held around Nov. 1 called Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”), which means “summer’s end” in Gaelic.

Because ancient records are infrequent and incomplete, the exact nature of Samhain is not fully understood, but it was an annual communal meeting at the end of the harvest year, a time to gather resources for the winter months and bring animals back from the pastures. Samhain is also thought to have been a time of communing with the dead, according to folklorist John Santino.  Communing with the dead is something God(Yahweh) tells us not to do!!

There was a belief that it was a day when spirits of the dead would cross over into the other world,” Santino told Live Science. Such moments of transition in the year have always been thought to be special and supernatural, he added

Halloween provides a safe way to play with the concept of death, Santino said. People dress up as the living dead, and fake gravestones adorn front lawns — activities that wouldn’t be tolerated at other times of the year, he said.

Though a direct connection between Halloween and Samhain has never been proven, many scholars believe that because All Saints’ Day (or All Hallows’ Mass, celebrated on Nov. 1) and Samhain, are so close together on the calendar that they influenced each other and later combined into the celebration now called Halloween.

I’m almost back!

Hey, Guys! Kiki here. I’m leaving Oklahoma today😢 It literally went by so fast! I had so much fun though. I can’t wait to show you all the adventures I had. Another thing I want to say is, I don’t know if I’m liking Kiki’s Doll Hut. I know what your thinking. Yes, I have hard time making decisions. I mean I leaning more towards a blog name like: Kiki’s Enchanted Dolls, Kiki’s Wonderland, and Kiki Enchanted. It’s very whimsical, and fairytale like. What do you think? That’s all I have for today. I’ll show you my pictures in a couple days😉. Until next time!

Goty name connections!

What’s up, Guys? It’s Kiki! Today I want to show you some Goty name connections I’ve noticed. I’ve noticed this 1 year ago. I was thinking about this, and thought it would make a good post! So, let’s get started!

Ok, The actress that does McKenna is Jade pettyjohn. Her gymnastics coach is named Isabelle. Do you see the connection? Isabelle Palmer(Goty 2014), and she has a sister named Jade. In the Saige book Gabi has a friend named Renata. Isabelle’s bully is named Renata. The actress that does Jade in Isabelle is Grace Davidson, then a year later you have Grace Thomas(Goty 2015).  I think that’s it, if I remember more I’ll add it in. Have any of you guys noticed this? BYE!!!!!

Ps: This is a huge sign off!😄

Just to let you know!

What’s up, Guys? It’s Kiki! I wanted to let you know that I’m going to a cabin in OK for Sukkot. Sukkot is a major festival for the lord held in Autumn to commemorate the Israelites in wilderness(here’s some bible verses to back it up Ezra 3:4, Exodus 23:16, Nehemiah 8:13-18) Don’t worry I’ll make at least 1 to 2 posts while I’m gone. I’ll be gone for a week. I leave tomorrow afternoon. I’ll take tons of scenery pictures, and doll/stuffed animals traveling pictures as well😉. Chap 2 will be written, and posted when I get back. So, I think that’s it! I’ll make a post in a few days! BYYEEE!!!!

The Mysterious Ville of Tov-Chap 1


What’s up, Guys? It’s Kiki! I have a surprise for you! CHAPTER ONE OF MY NEW PHOTOSTORY! Yes, I know isn’t it exciting?!? It’s like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Where the Mountain meets the Moon  and The Lord of the Rings twist! I hope you enjoy it!

One day Dottie was walking in the middle of their farm land, with her cat Coco. She enjoyed looking at the scenery. The grass is like an antennae, baring the color of vibrant green. Without straining your eyes too much you can see mountains in the distance. She loved to take walks, it was like she was in a different world. She would reminisce about old times when her Dad was alive. Oh, how much better everything was. Her mom died when she was a baby. It just seems like the world has gotten sad. Now, the sun rarely comes out anymore, and Aunt Iz barely smiles.

She only has one friend, and that would be Coco. She has a shimmering gray coat, with eyes as black as coal. Dottie, and Coco do everything together. When the farm gets dull that’s when they’ll take a walk like this one, So they can get transported to a happier place. Where it seems like anything is possible.

Dottie usually dozes off, until Aunt Iz calls her in for supper. Her dreams are always full of adventure, and action. She very much wished it could be like that in real life. Oh, how she craved adventure! Her Dad would tell her stories about this special sapphire ring. A long time ago in the Sapphire Metropolis this Elvenking wanted a special sapphire ring to be made. He hired people to go to mines, and dig for sapphire. Once, people found some he crafted it into a ring. He gave it to his first-born daughter when she hit thirteen years of age. Then it became a tradition, his daughter passed it down to her first born daughter who passed it on to her first born daughter, and so on. Her dad said that ring was an amulet. A ring that had powers to protect the owner but it has to be given not taken. If you steal it bad things would start happening but Aunt Iz says that’s a bunch a foolishness.

I miss Dad, and his stories so much. He died one year ago at war. It’s never been the same without him.

A rush of wind went past her, and she suddenly woke up. In distance she heard Aunt Iz.  “Quick, Dottie!” she hollered. “A tornado is coming!”  Then Aunt Iz went off running to open the cellar.

Dottie jumped up, and grabbed Coco. The wind was so forceful she could barely run. “Come on Dorothy, get in the cellar!”, Aunt Iz  screamed.

Coco jumped out od Dottie’s arms, and headed for the house. “Coco!”, Dottie yelled than ran after her.

Aunt Iz went down into the cellar by herself, and closed the trap doors. Once Dottie got Coco she looked out the window to see the tornado, but she couldn’t. All she could see was whirling smoke. Then it dawned on her that she was picked up by the tornado! She ran into the closet with Coco, but she got so dizzy that she fell asleep.

9 Tips for Blogging

What’s up, Guys? It’s Kiki! I’m here today to give some useful tips for blogging. So, let’s get on to the post!

1: NEVER COPY! We think hard to come up with ideas. Just because you admire that person doesn’t mean you have to copy them. How would you like it if someone copied every little thing you did? I personally don’t mind if me, and another random blogger just happened to be alike, but not random bloggers just copying my likes, and personality!

2: When you take pictures of your dolls make sure their hair is brushed, outfits are facing the way they should, and that theirs outfits match. Also make sure you have good lighting!

3: Good Grammar. I’ve went on some blogs, and they didn’t care to add punctuation marks, or capitalize. This made there blog look trashy, and themselves lazy.

4: Once you get more viewers don’t get snobby, or prideful. Popular blogs think they are the best, and to busy for you. Believe me. When I once started blogging this blogger used to be nice, and comment. Once, she got more popular she never commented again.

5: Add cliffhangers. Viewers love cliffhangers in stories! You will have them hooked to your blog!

6: Don’t blame your viewers. It makes you look bad. I saw this blog who hasn’t posted this photo story part in awhile, and kept promising the viewers this week. She ended up never doing it. Then her viewers got confused and kept asking, and she has the nerve to get upset. I know some viewers can be cruel, but that’s no excuse!

7: Remember this is fun! It’s not a job(unless yours is supposed to be) Also, remember don’t copy! I know, can’t you tell how much I dislike it?

8: Don’t call your self werid. Ugh. Everybody calls them self werid but since everybody does they actually aren’t werid! Get it? I never call my self werid. You can judge for yourself if I’m different on the Meet Kiki page.

9: Just be yourself! I really dislike it when bloggers act different just to attract popular blogs. What happened to just being yourself?

I hope this post has helped you on what, and what not to do😉

You’re blogger………………….
