New families in Sugarbush Valley

So another post today... I would like to introduce you to all my new families. Some of them are already familiar with you like the Hazelwoods, Suzette Simpkins and of course the Furbanks, but I have a few very special new additions too. As it turns out I now have all the families I ever wanted, and will not acquire any "old" families. When I started my collection I made my top 50 list and that is what I stuck to. I have them all now, but I will ad a few family members to these existing families in the near future. There is, however, one relatively new family that I am considring but only time will tell if I will get them!

So congratulations to me with this huge milestone!

Hazelwood Mouse Family

Basil and Betty Hazelwood are the proprietors of the Orhanage in Eaglewood. They have big hearts and are always loved by the children. They teach the children that though live wasn't fair to them, life doesn't owe them anything and that success comes from hard work.

Basil is a diligent worker, ensuring that all the orphans are taken care of and that all their paper work are in order, but he is also very good at taking little naps in his various chairs around the Orphanage.

Betty is a real ray of sunlight, and the orphans that are in her care loves her very much, but Betty is also very strict, although fair. Good manners are everything to Betty, something she insists on at the table and in life itself! While a child is in her care, she wants him or her to get the best education ever and that includes being disciplined correctly.

The Hazelwoods have one daughter, Evie, who is currently on an student exchange camping trip.

Keats Cat Family

Rosetti Longfellow is a music teacher. He is actually thé famous Rosetti Longfellow, conductor extraordinaire, who has conducted many orchestras at famous performances. But with the birth of each of his children it got more and more difficult for him to leave them to go on month long tours with an orchestra. It was with the birth of little Clare that he decided to hang up his baton, and rather teach music, which had more normal hours. Rosetti plays many instruments of which the grand piano is his favorite, but he is also proficient in the violin, saxophone, harp and many of the different types of flutes. He hopes to establish a love for classical music in the students of Sugarbush Valley and is really happy to see the interest that many has shown in taking up music lessons. Rosetti has a sister, Diana Keats, who live in Glen Fallow with her three children.

Bronte has never been this happy in her life. Finally they have a “normal” life. Her husband has a full time job with normal working hours, they have five beautiful, healthy and sometimes naughty children and she even has a job of her own as the junior teacher of Sugarbush Valley. She thanks her best friend, Margaux Bercher, every day for convincing her husband to move to this peaceful, little village.

The couple has five children, T S Elliot, Shelley, Larkin, Clare and Dylan. Elliot likes village life, and together with Zander, they roam the area, always hiking, climbing or planning a big adventure. Shelley is a sweet little girl and though she misses the shops from her home town, she has realized that the shops in Sugarbush Valley is just as wonderful.

The babies are a handful, all of them born in the course of 3 years. At the moment Larkin, 3, is the easiest of them all. He has a charming personality and though he would probably be able to get away with a lot because of this, he never causes his parents any trouble. At the moment Clare is the naughtiest with her terrible two tantrums that even her father can’t handle. It is often so bad that she cries herself to sleep. Little Dylan is only one, and confused. He is very unsure if he should be like his little brother or sister. Clare’s behavior is much more exciting but he realizes that Larkin is more popular

Brightfields Goat Family 

Gill and his wife, Ellema, finally took the plunge and decided to move to Sugarbush Valley. It was a decision that they have fretted over for very long, and being very cautious by nature, they were worried if they would be successful and happy in the little village. When Mayor Bill lured another ice cream maker to Mystique Valley, it was the final straw, and they packed up their belongings, and left behind life as they know it and their family. Gill's brother Andrew lives in Mystique Valley.

The wonderful villagers of Sugarbush Valley has helped them to settle in nicely. Kenneth Furbanks found them a home and Mayor Trunk provided them with a prime spot for their soft serve ice cream stall. Though it is just opposite the square from the Buttercup ice cream cart, they have quickly learned that there is a market for both soft serve and scooped ice cream.

The Brightfields have two children, Meshia and Briel. They are relieved to notice that Meshia has already made a new friend in Willow Cottontail and little Briel is adjusting just fine in Mrs Chiffon’s nursery school.

Meshia likes arts and crafts. She can spend the day coloring with crayons and markers and she loves to decorate her room with glow in the dark stickers. Her favorite thing to do is make jewelry out of ribbons and beads.

Little Briel loves ice cream, but are yet to decide, which her favorite flavours are. This gives Briel the perfect excuse to sample the hundreds of different flavours available again and again!

Buttermilk Rabbit Family

Andrey is the dentist of Sugarbush Valley. He is newly qualified and Sugarbush Valley will be the first place where he will practice his trade. Andrey is a fun loving guy who loves life and now even more so, now that he has met the woman of his dreams, Blanka.

Blanka Buttermilk (formerly Periwinkle, she is the younger sister of Alex) is a tough one to get to know. She is never the same and due to the fact that she has a sharp mind and always ready with something quirky and even sarcastic to say, many people misunderstand her. But under the tough exterior is a shy girl who just want to be happy and cared for. Blanka feels lucky that she has found someone like Andrey, and she just knows that they will be very happy.

Heike is a sweet baby who often climbs into her father's lap when he is reading a book and holds her mother's leg while she is cooking dinner. She is very fond of her grandfather, Mack Periwinkle, but she has hard time fighting off her cousin, Hannah Periwinkle, for his sole attention.

Andrey has a brother Boris who lives in Mystique Valley.

Furbanks-Walnut Squirrel Family

Kenneth and Emma recently welcomed a new member to their family, Alyssa Walnut. She is the sister of their adopted son, Alfie Walnut, and for now they are her foster parents.

Alyssa lost her parents in a tragic accident a few years ago. Ever since she went in search of her little brother, Alfie. And now that she has been reunited with him she is as happy as she could ever be.
Mulberry Raccoon Family

Edward Charles Mulberry, or better known as Pumpkin is a happy-go-lucky little boy, who will smile at anyone as long as you keep him supplied with lots of sweets! Despite his recent circumstances, his father Edward Mulberry is relieved to notice that he is adjusting well.

Simpkins Cat Family

After a terribly sad life Suzette Simpkins has found some happiness in Sugarbush Valley, although she is always smiling she is a stranger to most and that is exactly how Suzette prefers it. The only person that knows her true life story is her brother, Maurice, who is also the only person that Suzette trusts. Many stories has been spread about the early death of her husband OR that the twins have been left on her porch by a stranger when she was a youngster herself, but none of these have been verified, and will probably never be.

Suzette tries to forget about her past life by organising the most amazing kids parties in the region. Every last detail is important to her and nothing gets overlooked. But though she loves her small business, the most important thing in her life is her two children, the twins Glynn and Gwendolynn, for whom she would do anything.

Glynn and Gwendolyn Simpkins are two adorably sweet kittens who have exceptional manners. They live for Saturdays when they usually help their mother to organize some friend’s birthday party and love to dress up in their best party outfits. It’s the thought of the delicious birthday cake, the brightly coloured balloons, party hats, the beautifully wrapped presents, and sending and receiving of birthday cards which make them love birthday parties so much.

Beaman Ginger Cat Family

Helly Beaman is an orphan, and even sadder is that no one knows anything about her. She was found by Mae Mulberry in the forest on the edge of Sugarbush Valley. As the proprietors of the Eaglewood Orphanage, Betty and Basil took her into their house, and have looked after her ever since. Helly is a sweet girl and though she longs for a mommy, she is happy in Betty and Basil’s care.

Brighteyes Rabbit Family 

Marion Brighteyes is a highly acclaimed wedding planner, known for her unprecedented style and innovation. No detail is too small when planning her clients most important day. Her business slogan even is "It must be a dream come true!" Marion’s meticulous organisational skills, dedication, and a love of her work are only a few of the traits that suggest to the bride-to-be that Marion will handle everything, and that she may relax.

Due to her great success Marion gets a lot of requests and because she struggles to say no to potential clients, she has decided to leave Grinpa in search of a quitter more peaceful life, she still handles one wedding a month, but the rest of the time are spent with her girls, Charlotte and Olivia. Marion misses her brother, Peter, who lives in Evergreen Village, but he has Belinda now and she makes him happy. She just wishes she could say the same about their sister.

Charlotte would like to be a wedding planner like her mother when she is older, so she likes spending time helping her mother at work. In the evenings she likes to design and create new ideas for wedding dresses, cakes and flower decorations! Though only eight years old she comes up with amazing ideas of which her mother has even used a few of.

Olivia is a ballerina, or rather she dreams of being one. She is up early every morning, practicing steps which means Marion can never have a lay in. Olivia is still small and obviously not as nimble as a true ballerina should be, but she is very cute to look at, so her mother doesn't mind waking up early.

Bearbury Bear Family

Bruno Bearbury is a honey farmer, who have learned the trade from Horace Honeybear of Mystique Valley, where he has worked the past 10 years. Recently, he received a very lucrative and appealing offer from Mayor Hugo Trunk to come and farm with bees on Highfields farm, on the outskirts of Sugarbush Valley.

Both Bruno and Irene loved the idea and accepted the offer immediately. Bruno is a very shy man and prefers to hide under his honey-farmer uniform and be kept company by his bees. Irene is not shy at all, and can’t wait to spent time with her best friend Sorrel Cottontail, who she has knew from their school days in Mystique Valley. She will however miss her sister, Olive Butler dearly. They have two children, Owen and Harriet. Owen is already a familiar face in Sugarbush Valley as he has visited the Timbertops a few times in the past. The family will live in an old refurbished stable on Highfields farm.

Owen is an energetic little boy, and always up to some mischief! Together with his best friend Bud Timbertop, they have done a lot of things that gave their mothers a few grey hairs, but they are never nasty to anyone, and Owen will always do something good to make up for his mischievous nature.

Baby Harriet is a shy little girl just like her father, but she loves her brother and follows him everywhere, even though it frustrates her, as crawling is not as fast as running.!

Basset Dog Family

Kelly Basset is a jolly chap. He is a bus driver, in the Subridens area of Sylvania and lives in Eaglewood. He loves his job, because not only does he get to drive around all day but also gets to partake in his favorite hobby which is gossiping with all his regular customers.
