Introducing Dahlia! (Photostory)
Dahlia, the newest Prettie Girl arrived yesterday. She is Lena's younger sister who has followed Lena to Morristown for an opportunity to work with animals.
It's Halloween and Lena and Adele are taking the kids to the party. Big Allen is planning to watch a football game with Adele's husband, Mike.
"Honey, where are the snacks I asked you to get for tonight?" (Alan)
"Excuse you? I thought you said you were going to pick up some snacks on the way home." (Lena)
"Shoot! I totally forgot." (Alan)
"Are you sure you don't want to join us at the party?" (Lena)
"No, I'm still a little tired from the trip. I'm going to call Mom, then curl up with a good book." (Dahlia)
"I know Mom and Dad are missing you like crazy." (Lena)
"Yes, I think Dad is still surprised that I moved out." (Dahlia)
"Well lil' Alan and I will eat lots of goodies in your honor." (Lena)
"Any ideas on what I can serve my guests?" (Alan)
"There is half a cake still in there." (Lena)
"I can't just serve cake." (Alan)
Lena takes a deep breath. This is typical Alan. He says he's going to do something, and when he doesn't follow through he looks to Lena to fix it.
"Awww, my little reindeer. You're so handsome!" (Lena)
"Turn him around. I want to see." (Dahlia)
"Awww, my little nephew is killing it." (Dahlia)
"Why did you pick a reindeer costume? That's for Christmas time." (Alan)
"Let's just say when you wait until the last minute to get a costume, you have to take what's available." (Lena)
"Honey, get the door. It's probably Adele." (Lena)
"Trick or treat!" (Adele)
"You came to the wrong house if you are looking for treats. Where's Mike?" (Alan)
"As far as I know, he's still at the office. Give him a call." (Adele)
"I'll do that." (Alan)
"Hey Adele. Come on in. I want to see Sydney's costume." (Lena)
"She's my little lamb." (Adele)
"Ohhhh, that's so cute! You should have dressed up as Mary." (Lena)
"I thought about it, but time got away from me." (Adele)
"By the way, Adele, this is my sister Dahlia. She just arrived here a couple days ago." (Lena)
"Nice to meet you." (Adele)
"Same here." (Dahlia)
"Are you staying in town long?" (Adele)
"That all depends on how quickly I get a job. I have a job interview on Monday" (Dahlia)
"Hey honey, do you have time to run to the store before you leave?" (Alan)
Lena just stares are her husband. Is he serious?
Adele and Dahlia continue their conversation.
"No, I don't. I can give you the number to Dominos. You can just get pizza and wings." (Lena)
"I guess that will have to do." (Alan)
Lena pulls out her cell phone and texts the number to Alan's cell phone.
Lena wraps lil' Alan in his blanket as she gets ready to leave.
"Okay, we are finally ready. Are we taking your car or mine's?" (Lena)
"Do you have room for Sydney's car seat?" (Adele)
"We can make room. Let's go." (Lena)
"Have fun and bring me back some candy." (Dahlia)
I'm so excited to have the two new Prettie Girls.
Even though Dahlia is very similar to Lena, I still like her.
Here is the back of Dahlia's box. I'm going to stay pretty true to her character. She has an interview with Monica, the local pet specialist.
Kimani is gorgeous! I will be incorporating her into the stories soon.
The back of her book describes her as a jewelry maker. Morristown doesn't have a jewelry maker, so she will fit right in.
And no I didn't find the lost Halloween costumes. I think it's finally time for me to organize the basement.
