And this is Dory

Hello!, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

Formerly known as Dell, but who wants to share a name with a computer? If you want a computer name, Toshiba is prettier, don't you think? Unless you are really thin, then maybe Compaq?!!!
Dory arrived on August 15th. She looks so cute out of the box. She is from Kentucky. Her father used to be a coal miner, just like my wonderful husband's grandfather was! She loves music - and there are quite a few musicians and music lovers in my family! I love her blue green eyes and brown hair - they remind me of my most favorite person in the world (my darling husband). Dory is cute and perky and I think we are going to be great friends.

Meet Lila

Lilian ful length, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

Lila was formerly known as Lilian by the Hearts for Hearts company. She joined our household a little over a week ago. This is here "meet outfit." She has a proportionally large head compared to her body, but I like that - after all, some of my favorite characters have large heads: Charlie Brown and the Peanuts, Ziggy, the kids in Joan Walsh Anglund art work, the Lati Yellow BJD kids, and Lalaloopsys! I think Lila probably is closer to "normal" than any of those. But she isn't as extreme as Blythe. I am trying my best resist her!
