Round 14: Owen and Kendal

Last week in Owen and Kendal's house Lolly the pup joined the family, Owen became and elder, Starla passed away, Owen got his LTW and TOC, Josie and Joel moved to college.

This week, Owen and Kendal are all alone in their house for the very first time. Though neither of them like it much that way and both miss their twins and their noise and mischief more than ever. And when we get to the house, there is no peace to be had as a birthday party for Kendal is underway...

Happy Birthday Kendal! Looks like you are still scaring with the best of 'em.

Reaching that time in their lives, Owen decided he would retire. He spent most of his time hanging out at the house and playing with Lolly and playing poker.

Kendal also retired, but not before reaching her TOC/LTW of becoming a professional pary guest. She then decided to put herself to work full time at Cafe Petite, the quaint shop she had purchased years before.

She put what little funds they had into a long overdue remodel.

And even hired a helper, a sweet young gal named Jenna.

Business was really booming for the first time since Kendal had bought the shop and she really enjoyed watching her little shop grow.

Back at home Kendal and Owen took it easy for a few days...the highlight of which was this all night card game with Owen's brother Aiden and his wife Sharon.

And at the end of the week they had a little get together to celebrate their golden anniversary.

Durring which Starla's spirit thought it a good time to come out and scare everyone, but it couldn't damper the happy mood.

The couple enjoyed their time alone and prepared for the return of their daughter Josie (heir to the household) the following week.

Wow they sure were busy for a couple of old foggies *giggle*
I love her makeover, she never looked better!

Great update. It's hard to keep those Elders busy while waiting for the heir to return ... LOL. You did a great job!

ah that was sweet- nice for the elders to have some time alone but they certainly used it wisely. Love the shop remodel and parties are always fun.
Funny pick of Kendall covering her face ala vampire style- I guess old habits die hard. ;)

Hmm that's odd - I'm sure I posted a comment but I can't see it. Apologies if you get 2 comments from me! Good idea running the cafe business - it's always tough keeping 2 elders busy. And don't you just love the way ghosts come out for a good party!?

I've gotta have more parties if it means I'm gonna see ghosts. I do love that little cafe, gotta get somebody to buy it in my neighborhood. The face covering pic is the best! *giggle*

Such a busy house for only having 2 residents. Kendall is still walking around like a vampire, too funny! Yay, Golden Annivesary! I always forget to throw those parties
