Time to Eat! (Photostory)

We rejoin Tim and Kate's cookout, just in time to eat.

Everyone has fixed their plates.  Tim is delivering the last of the meat from the grill.

"Anyone for ribs?"  (Tim)

"Daddy, I don't have a hot dog."  (Bethany)
"Just reach over and get one."  (Kurt)
"Noooo.  You get it."  (Bethany)

While they work out who gets the hot dog, let's just take an overall look at the table.

Stephanie has her hands full.  She's trying to deal with Aiden and Jessica, who is have a "I need a nap" meltdown.
"Honey, can you get Jessica?"  (Stephanie to her husband)
He's looking her way, but can't really make out what she is saying.

Tim turns as he hears a faint doorbell sound
"That's probably Sheila."  (Kate)
"I'll get it."  (Tim)

"Thanks Daddy."  (Bethany)

"Jessica, what's wrong?  Come to auntie."  (Kate)

Jessica is not budging.  She is clearly having a terrible two moment.

"Hey guys.  You started without me."  (Sheila)

"You are only an hour late.  Of course we started without you."  (Kate
"I'm fashionably late."  (Sheila)
"No dear.  Fashionably late is 10 - 15 mins.  You are just late."  (Kate)

"Daddy, I need some ketchup, too."  (Bethany)

"William, now you have someone to play with."  (Tim)
"Where's Shannon?"  (Kate)
"She's inside watching tv with Kimberly" (Sheila)
"I don't know why they insist on staying inside.  It's such a beautiful day.  I'm going to give them a few more minutes, and then they're going to have to come outside."  (Kate)

Kimberly and Shannon better enjoy it while they can.

"I love this show."  (Shannon)

Back outside, Ethan finally got up to help with Jessica.  If they are lucky, she will be asleep in no time.

    1. Marta - Thanks. Yes, it's a Mattel dress. I'm not sure where it's from though. I bought it second hand. Shannon is my favorite older version Stacy doll.

  3. Ahh Shelia. Something important must have kept her for her to be an hour late. Or maybe that's just the new fashion, like she says LOL.

  6. I love this post but I feel so bad for Jessica. and shelia is very pretty. I am guessing that they are the more relaxed side of your dolls. they seem cool. Danielle and her friends are feisty! and by the way don't forget to edit the character section with Kendra, Nathaniel and the new baby

  11. Seeing your Power Team guys, I was wondering if you still have their weapons, and if you sell them

    1. Sergio - I do still have some of the weapons. I haven't considered selling them, but I might give it some thought. I've been stockpiling them for a potential storyline that would need them.

  14. A late summer BBQ with family and friends, what a lovely way to end a day. Your feast looks yummy and your families look very relaxed (even Jessica after her 'moment').

  15. Poor Kimberly and Shannon. They will soon be forced to socialize against their wishes. At least there will be some yummy food when they get outside.

    1. Muff - You know how parent's and aunties can be. "Go on outside and get some fresh air. You always watching that boob tube. That's what's wrong with you young kids, today."

      Sorry I took you back there.
