Halloween With Friends

Normally, this is the time of year when the Cullens have their big family get-together. But this year, their children had other commitments and couldn't be there to celebrate with their parents. Carlyle and Esme were planning on spending Halloween by themselves until they received a call from their human friends, Vincent and Morticia, to come and celebrate it at their place.










Have a safe and happy Halloween everybody. Don't let the ghosts, goblins, witches, vampires or zombies get you!  :-)

Back At The Ranch

Cindi's been feeling a bit down lately, so she decided to go to Marianne's ranch for some fresh air, supportive sisterly company and an enjoyable horseback ride. The sun was shining, the fall air cool and green pastureland as far as the eye could see...




























It's good to see that Cindi is going to try and come out of her "box" and "expand her horizons" more. She needs to. Ever since her husband passed on, she's devoted most of her time to running the winery. She hardly ever takes a vacation or time off, so it'll be good for her to socialize more with folks who share her interests. Who knows?  There may be someone special waiting in the wings for her. :-)

The Corner Cafe

After taking her cat, Taz to see Travis, Deb invited him to check out her gallery and to have coffee at her favorite cafe. The Corner Cafe is a small, intimate, outdoor retreat two blocks from her gallery right in the middle of town.



















I was beginning to wonder where Amber was. She's been so quiet I thought she might have moved out of Moreville. Of course, Amber would never leave. Here, she can get away with being the popular socialite she believes herself to be. Anywhere else, she'd only be laughed at or ignored. Deb and Travis would've preferred her not barging in on them, but luckily she didn't stick around long. :-)

New Additions

"I'm not buying any more dolls!"  Uh huh. Famous last words. "I'm not buying any more doll stuff!"  Yeah. Sure. Ok. In spite of my determination, two more residents wound up in Moreville.  One jumped into my shopping cart.  The other magically showed up on my doorstep...


I love the lady in the gray and black gown. She is truly gorgeous! I was on the fence about the glam luxe Barbie, but I liked the clothes.


Here they are de-boxed.


Thanks to my favorite enabler, Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures, I checked out some of the Sparkle Girl fashions. They're perfect for my teens even if they are just a little big.


The redhead is wearing one of the Sparkle Girl fashions. It fits her pretty well, but I think most of those fashions are too young-looking for my older, sophisticated ladies. So my teens are thrilled to have some new clothes.










I couldn't resist doing a little story with the new girls. The redhead still hasn't given me her name, but the dark-haired beauty told me her name is Sophia. And yes, that is Krystal at the next table with one of her friends. Notice Casey and Ryan checking out all the new girls!  LOL :-)
