Halloween Doll Party

The ghosts and goblins are stirring - the elves and sprites are all about - and it is time for a Halloween party.  Have you got your costumes?  And your treats?  Good - then let the party begin.
 We love to pose for photos at our party - come along - for those of you who are new this year, we'll introduce ourselves.
 I'm Poppy Sunshine, I love clothes that are a bit different and I also like my friends the birds and animals.  I will bring apples for the deer when they stop by. My favorite book is Brambly Hedge Summer Story.  The little mice are so sweet and friendly.

I love to bake and make treats for many of our parties.
And sometimes Donnie plays the piano for us - a gift from Auntie Jamie, all the way from West Virginia.

 We are Donnie and Abigail Clarissa 
Wellington-Jones - my friends call me Abby -
And my friends call me Donnie!!!
I love to dash about on my scooter - and ride my pony, sometimes in my jammies, Auntie Diane made my jammies as a surprise.  Be sure to visit her for some Halloween fun too.  I share the pony with my sisters - they like to ride too.  We got our pony from Auntie Jamie for christmas one year.

My sisters love our pony too.
 I am Candace Diane - but just call me Candy Dee.  I'm the very newest sister and my favorite things are climbing trees and running fast in the woods.  Sometimes I hear an owl talking to me.

 You already know me, I'm Donnie Doll.  I have lots of sisters, but I'm waiting and waiting for a brother.  Maybe I'll get one for christmas.  Then we could think up more adventures.
He could play baseball with me - I love baseball.
And my sisters love baseball too - we wait all winter for spring training. Our mom, JoAnn, made all of our baseball uniforms, even our hats.  And she sewed all of our clothes, except for my jammies from Auntie Diane.

 Happy Halloween - I'm Kyla - Auntie Candy sent me to live with my sisters all the way from Ohio.  She fixed my hair and dressed me up  for the trip.
 I like flowers and whistling - can you hear how well I can whistle?
 And I adore flowers - any season, any kind.  I even like flowers on my dresses.

And my favorite book is The Secret Garden, especially the one that has paintings by Tasha Tudor.
 We are the three happy witches - Candy Corn Witches. We love to walk in the leaves on a bright Autumn afternoon.

 This is a fun party - I'm glad you came.  I am Sally Jo.  I like having tea parties with my sister Abby.

 And cooking Thanksgiving dinner in my favorite Autumn outfit.
 And in the summer I love to relax in the sunshine and think about wonderful things.

 We love Halloween outfits, with matching bags.  We found some pumpkins just our size.  Kyla picked them from her garden.
 I am Samantha Parkington, but my friends just call me Sammie.  My favorite pastime is sailing on my little sailboat, or walking along the beach.
I came to the family as a gift from my Auntie Lori.  She lives on a mountain.
I like to play with my sister Sally Jo with our beach ball in the summer.
 We're ready for Trick or Treat.  Candy Dee has our basket for gathering goodies from the neighbors.  Do you have your treats ready?  We'll be stopping by soon - for a treat - or a trick - hee hee hee.

 And now it is full of candy - we'll all share when we get home.

 Ohh Donnie and Candy Dee are back - let's see what they've got
 Wow - lots and lots of candy - enough for everyone - what is your favorite?

 Donnie is getting ready to carve his punkin.
 I prefer my pumpkins to be uncarved - they are perfect straight from the garden.

 Two years ago there were just four of us - and Donnie had just joined our family.  And now there are Kyla, and Sammie and Candy Dee.  One big happy family, having fun on Halloween.

If it is cold for trick or treat we can put on our pumpkin hats
And don't forget to visit Auntie Candy - she has a halloween fairy garden too.
Happy Halloween everybody!!
