Hi There Friends! We last joined the Zale’s for a wedding! Bettina and Leif got hitched in the snow, and there’s a little one on the way! That said, I’m sick and don’t feel especially witty, but a day with nothing to do seemed like a waste not getting a post up – so here we go!
Angelica flirted with Leif – which caused a bit of an uproar, and I didn’t get any pictures – but I was furious! Everyone had an “upset” action queued – but it didn’t seem to do any permanent damage. Damn you Flirty Angelica! Go flirt with your HUSBAND – NOT YOUR SON IN LAW. TERRIBLE.
Betts lost her friendship with her mother, but we recovered with some causal banter and pillow fighting. Thankfully it didn’t seem to be a regular occurrence, and things returned to bliss.
Betts is stinking cute, an managed to get a maternity outfit that I don’t hate.
And actually being able to control a mother for the first time – we headed off to the spa!
I think it’s lovely – and Aurora Skies has a pretty little town – but the weather is SUPER wet and snowy – so a clear day was pretty rare. It also doesn’t have a festival grounds, and a few other things – so there’s a move in our future. But not yet.
Bettina arrived at home and I heard someone on the trampoline…
I’m sorry it’s dark, but holy cow Bea! And what’s that in the background?
When did we get a ball? Oh well, father-in-law bonding is approved.
Smacking your pregnant wife in the FACE with it is NOT you jackass!
Aw, she has two different colored eyes! Benji is a baby mixed kitty with no tail. I have YET to adopt a kitty in this game with a tail. I *MIGHT* cheat a tail on her when she grows up into adulthood. I like tails. But she’s cute as a freakin’ bug and is Clueless & Lazy. Aw.
Bettina drove herself to the hospital in the rain.
Then the rain turned to snow …
And Leif showed up an hour and a half later – what he was doing at home, I have no idea…
….then, at 3:35 am we welcomed C-Baby number one – Cyrus – to the family!
I told myself that if the first baby was a boy, because I wanted to alternate boy, girl, boy, girl for TH, that they’d only have ONE child. I mean, after the three sets of twins Abe and Angelica had, well – that was enough for me! But it’s kinda boring… so we’ll see…
Invite her to what you say? Must be a birthday! Of course it is! A double birthday in fact! (Ya know, cuz Zales have TWINS)
Baxter! He rolled Loner, and we selected Illustrious Author for his LTW.
He doesn’t look EXACTLY like Abe – I can’t pinpoint the exact difference, maybe nose and face shape? I dunno – I like him better than I thought I would. Weird.
And Beatrix! She rolled Loves the Heat and we selected Hit Movie Composer to go with her virtuoso trait.
She’s pretty, and I kinda really like her because she’s my first gay Zale – and she’s the only one to autonomously form an actual relationship. Oh well, scram.
I moved out Bea and Bax together. Peace. Oh yeah, before they left, Bea rolled learn the guitar skill, so I swiped Angelica’s from her inventory and gave it to Bea thinking she’d take it with her, which was STUPID because duh – when she left everything she had went into Abe’s inventory – but this DOES mean Angie doesn’t have a guitar…
I locked it in… we’ll see.
Angelica – without her guitar, and even though she shamelessly flirted with her daughter’s husband – well, she’s a pretty awesome grandma. And I know I complained about her A LOT but without her finally succumbing to Abe’s charms, we wouldn’t have had gotten this far. And she’s pretty awesome at her political job and brings home good money, and well, her life bar is AWFULLY full – and I’d hate for her to pass on with everyone being all “BOO ANGELICA AND HER GUITAR!” So… that said… here she is being awesome:
I was just catching up on The Scatterdays, and I was totally bummed when Ainsley died, and I know Angelica is not NEARLY as awesome as Ainsley, but yeah. Angelica isn’t terrible, and without her we’d be nowhere! (or at least somewhere VERY different!) So, I’m showing some Angie love. Okay done.
Also moderately noteworthy… Leif and Bettina have been going at it like rabbits in all areas of the home – no chimes. I’m concerned.
On that note, we’ll end with Bettina being a cute and awesome mom. Come back soon! Hopefully no one will die, and a baby will be born!
And Abe and Angelica need to go do that somewhere else. Because gross.
