Hi there! Welcome back! Last time the Zales threw an EPIC party, Evan aged to teenager, Daisy worked hard on her LTW, Elaine & Erik toddlerfied, and that about sums it up! Let’s enjoy a brand new post, shall we!?!
First – I COMPLETELY forgot that we had a basement. I was trying to cram all the Daisy/Gustave spawn on the main floor of the house, as well as maintaining some sort of nursery type place for the
demon spawn from hell children that arrive for the daycare! Well! I have a basement, and I redecorated it from fatty Daphne’s room to a room for Evie and Ellen. SO MUCH BETTER.
See? So great.
Evan actually turns out to be helpful! Yay for teenagers!
Did I say helpful? JUST KIDDING!
BOO FOR IDIOTS! FEED HER!
Duchess finds a mysterious puddle!
A LARGE mysterious puddle! Look at her ears! ❤
Daisy sings the love song she learned in France while making pancakes… She is terribly off key.
NooBOOOOOoooooo Oh NooooOBOOOOOOOOO!
NooboooOO!OOO!O!OOoo Oh NOOOBOOBOOBOBOOOOO **SCREECH**
Terrible. Cute, but terrible. Gustave sings it all the time too, but when he does, it’s lovely.
Evie and Daisy meet at the table.
Daisy: I love that you’re doing your homework, however, you should eat breakfast.
Evie: Is it fried chicken?
Daisy: No. OMNOMOMNOM It’sh pancakesh…
Wut kindsha mom wuh I be *snarf* if I madshe shicken for breafash. *snort chomp shovel*
Calling the household to the meal is AWESOME!
Pancakesh for EVERYONE!
…she’s cute as ever and chases her tail. Awwww.
So little Erik? His IF is pretty cute…
…for a creepy ass IF that may or may not EAT HIM later. Ugh. Hate those things.
But I love little Orange Erik
And Elaine is teaching herself to walk in the walker just there. Awww. Love ALL the children in this generation!
And I love little Sea Foam Elaine
Gus: **SNIIIIFFFFFF** you smell gud.
Idiot Sims are so weird… -_-
SO! I was catching up with Amy and Julia – and I decided the Zales needed to get out more. For entertainment’s sake. So I have Daisy invite Ellen, Evie, Evan, Gustave & Duchess to the winter festival. Toddlers don’t have anything to do there, and I thought Duchess might have a nice time.
Never have I been so wrong.
Oh – well, so we saw Gus up there huffing Elaine- so since he had her in his arms when Daisy invites him to the festival he carries HER along too. Even though she wasn’t on the invite list. Party Crasher Elaine, ladies and gentleman.
(BTW – See Gustave’s phone ringing? It rang the ENTIRE taxi ride. I can only imagine how annoying that was for the taxi driver)
So OMG, I didn’t even want Gustave to bring Elaine, but so much cute!:
And beautiful town’s winter sunset in the background! Aw.
So, I brought Duchess. I thought she’d have fun with all the people and stuff…
Oh dear! The snow is over her little puppy head!
I’m sorry I brought you little baby puppy!
Here she is, just trying to walk around. HA!
Back to the festival – Fairy Ice Skating FAIL!
Ummm, she’s not skating. She’s fairy floating.
So while I was entertained by fairy ice skating, I was worried about little Duchess, and I found her whimpering in the snow.
See that tiny slightly lighter mound? Lower left? That’s little Duchess. So I clicked: GO HOME
I have never been so wrong.
Here she is… Going home.
Running loose in the streets… and she’s just a baby!
Aw, peanut! I’m sorry this is your ISBI life. I love you! Run Duchess, RUN!
Oh… Oh no. There she is, a little under-the-snow puppy tunneling her way home. Do you see the house up there? The pink house on the top of the hill? That’s the Zales neighbor. Poor Duchess. I do genuinely care for Duchess. I thought she’d have fun.
And well, I never wanted Elaine to attend this festival in the first place. YOU BROUGHT HER!
FEED HER YOU IDIOT!
Evan and Evie make a snowman!
Evan: Our snowman could use makeup.
Evie: I think Elaine is crying.
Hmm, I’m not so sure she’s having fun…
What? What is that behind her? A Fairy? OMG! They don’t skate!
Look at them! They just fly in circles! FAIL!
Ellen, wonders why she can’t float around in circles. WAY EASIER than skating…
Her poor little face… 😦
Speaking of faces, Daisy gets her painted!
Aw, I love the snowflake paint.
So wait… where’s Duchess the puppy?
Still making the incredible journey.
I’m SO SAD that I had Daisy bring her to the festival… And then I’m EVEN MORE SAD that I clicked “go home”. That was wrong. That was very very wrong.
Well, the baby (who shouldn’t even be here) is about to pass out, so we’ll head home.
Let’s check in with the rest of the family, shall we?
Evie is first…
Hmm, she decided to send herself home…
Let’s check on Ellen!
Hmm… she’s ALSO on her way home!
How about Evan?!?
He’s being left out. That’s too bad.
Well, let’s find Gustave!
He’s TEARING IT UP! YAY GUSTAVE!!
So… where’s the puppy? Didn’t she head home a long while ago?
Yes. There she is. The little pathetic dot just to the left of the tree. I’m so sorry little puppy. I knew you’d be happier at home – but I didn’t realize how terrible it would be to GET HOME. I thought you’d catch a cab? ilu. ❤
Well, like previously mentioned, I decided to round up the family and head home. Nearly all of the family was either already home, or on their way home…and…well… welcome HOME!
This is what Daisy comes home to. Can you imagine? You just wanted a nice family outing, you get home and well, everyone NEEDS something. But where’s the puppy?!? DUCHESS!?!
Duchess: I’m SO tired!
Oh baby! You’re so small, and travelled so far! Are you okay?
Red plumbob, captured on purpose says NO!
(You can’t even see her… poor little incredible journey.)
Daisy to the rescue!
*NOTE: I genuinely thought Duchess would have fun at the festival. I’M SO SORRY!*
I have never been so happy to see Daisy carrying Duchess. I thought we’d lose her.
In the meantime, Erik screams for no reason…
Erik screams for no reason in the Orange/Sea Foam room. And although he is genuinely screaming for no reason in this room, I just wanted to show you this room.
Poor Duchess recovers from her Incredible Journey while being Homeward Bound by passing out… with her eyes open…
…inches from her bed. Poor thing. 😦
But, it’s a brand new day, and Evan aims to be helpful again!
He’s so cute in his pajamas, and Evie looks like she’s heading outside!
Cyrus decides it’s time to ice skate on the koi…
Ha! Love it!
And Evie shows us her bookworm trait!
Evie: I’m trying to read “Logical Fallacies You Can Really Believe” SHUT UP THE BABIES!
Evan is like father/like son
FEED HER YOU IDIOT!
OMFG! You are awesome Evan. A little slow, but awesome. Thank you for feeding her.
Ellen is TOO DAMN CUTE
And she spies THIS!
Which of my creepy Sims made that!?! *shudder*
Ahem, Sir? Maid? Excuse me…
Where did you find that donut?
*NOTE: must fire maid IMMEDIATELY!
Well! What do we have here? Is that Daphne?!?
Fatne collides with Daisy while Daisy’s trying to do the laundry. Since donut eating maid, and every maid before and since, FAILS TO GRASP THE CONCEPT OF LAUNDRY!
But why is Daph
fatne here to begin with?
It’s Cyrus’ elder birthday, and Gustave’s adult birthday! Look at our handsome men and their cakes!
Above Left to right; Evan, Gustave, Daphne, Drake, and Evie!
Dane shows up too! And I think he brought hotdogs!
Cyrus contemplates the meaning of life.
And the need to pee.
And from his perspective: Family
Look at them… Aw… That’s a damn fine party.
Gustave ages first…
Gus: I look SO FINE!
Seriously Drake. Calm down.
And yes, Gustave. You look damn fine indeed.
Daisy: No shits given.
Someone’s Hand: PHOTOBOMB!
Cyrus: I ROCK OLD MAN!
Yes Cyrus. Yes you do.
Cyrus: OMG I need to put this cake down RIGHT NOW! I have to PEE!
Cyrus: PEE NOW?
Well, a bathroom would’ve been better… AND LOOK!
Your ex-wife showed up JUST IN TIME to watch you piss yourself in your old age. And, even though I’m reluctant to admit it, Traci looks pretty good. But It’s okay, the day after she moved in with you as a youngster, she pissed herself. So it has gone full circle.
Erm.. Evan? You okay?
Evan pisses himself. Do you see everyone’s faces? Cuz LOL!
Dane: Hey Mom? It’s kinda weird to see you…
Traci: Evan? Evan?!? Bathroom maybe?
Drake: That’s disgusting.
This picture below? It’s Daisy. Praising the puppy
Because even snow covered puppy knows where to potty.
I love puppy
Duchess is the cutest thing ever…
…speaking of cute, Cyrus rolls a wish for a cane!
I grant it! Look how cute he is now that he’s showered. Aw…
OMG MORE PEE FAILS!
Evie! Shame on you peeing on your grandpa’s laundry! There are FIVE TOILETS in this LITTLE HOUSE… FIND ONE NEXT TIME!
Traci seems to have moved back in… since she’s STILL HERE, and it’s 6:17 the morning after the party…
Traci: …what? I used to live here. Leave me alone. My house. Mine.
Daisy pretends Traci isn’t trying to come back home, and remembers the family portrait from the winter festival…
…It’s too bad Erik isn’t present, or perhaps it’s too bad Elaine was dragged there by Gustave… but it’s still adorbs! ❤ Daisy places it on the bar where she can see it all the time.
OMG! Evan has prom!
He sat in the limo looking VERY much like our awkward founder Abraham… then he X’ed out the “go to prom” action all on his own, and got out of the limo. I then sent him to prom. I don’t even think it was cheating because I don’t recall using any teen action for him. YAY!
Felicity? Who’s Felicity! She’s an “Offspring”! What fun!
He also won prom king due to rigged votes. But everyone’s Sim is always prom king or queen, so I chose to ignore it.
So all this time, Traci has STILL been in the house. It’s been AGES since the party, but she won’t leave. I finally have to ask Daisy to send her on her way.
As soon as Traci left, Daisy got the moodlet for throwing a great party! At last!
I also finally remembered that Daisy has been carrying around the remains of that random townie Qiana who both crashed the party, and then died at the party, for “Spooky Day” and Evan’s birthday. I decide that Daisy should head to the cemetery to respectfully deposit the remains.
Daisy appears very brave, but shows this:
I agree Daisy. I agree.
We promptly lay Qiana’s remains to rest, and are ready to scurry off, but decide now is as good a place as any to dispose of the IF’s in her inventory.
Ugh. So Creepy!
And we’re just about to head out when we see someone else in the graveyard!
It’s Dane! He blew a kiss to the remains laid to rest here. Someone Skullsomething. It was super weird.
Since Daisy is a coward, and already pushing herself to the max, we decide to visit Daisy’s Exclusive Dive.
Someone let a cat in who destroyed a bar stool. Daisy is not happy. I replace the ruined stool, and Daisy takes over as mixologist!
Look at her! ❤ Daisy! She had rolled a wish to make a perfect drink, and this is when she completed it!
But the mixologist she replaced, Alphonso Shook – well…
…Alphonso: O.O Thems some BOOBS!
I know Alphonso – I know, but SERIOUSLY Daisy. Stand up a bit. Really.
Cycl0n3 then orders a drink…
Since everyone likes him,
except me, I thought I’d show him enjoying a fine, flammable drink. It’s rated “outstanding” then the bar closes and she earned $427. Not bad!
Daisy gets home and gives some love to her very own little mini Daisy.
They’re not exactly alike, but still. And awww…
Then she works on Erik on the potty!
And it just gets SO GROSS!
Overflow potty lake! NASTAY!
And… with this room filled with potty – people drop off their children for daycare!
New people! The Beauchamp family has apparently outgrown our services, but here’s the new crew! Left to right: Melanie Perdue, Kristoffer Perdue, and Angelina Perdue. Dropped off by Miranda Shonda and Javon Reese. Triplets again?!?
OMG THERE’S ANOTHER ONE!
Here is Eddie Perdue. I didn’t pay attention to who dropped him off.
There are now SIX toddlers, two children, a teen, and two adults in the house who I can’t control. I will confess. It was not fun. And I don’t mean that in a fun not fun sort of way. Like games can be challenging and hard, and you can be like WHEW, that was difficult, but you still had fun? I hated every single second of this. Everyone kept plugging their ears, and I wished I could too. I HATE DAYCARE. However! I genuinely think it helps a non-modified town populate! I mean, the Offspring family has at least one teenager, so they’ve outgrown the daycare, but Evan dated one at prom! And we had Beauchamp toddlers, and now Perdue toddlers! As much as I hate the daycare, I think it does pretty awesome things to the spawning population of a town that runs without mods.
The maid grabs a juice box and sits down with Daisy and tells her she should get some sleep.
Daisy chokes on her old mac n cheese! Hey! Maid! Quit eating our food and clean up potty lake over there! Get busy!
Spoiler: He left without cleaning it up. I hate him.
And then! Birthdays! Duchess goes first!
OMG she’s so damn cute!
Gustave thinks her birthday is BEYOND AWESOME! :-O
So forgetting Duchess’ birthday was totally okay… but it was Ellen’s too!
And if it was Ellen’s… it was Evie’s…
So. I hereby made my first (and pathetic) attempt at trait cards for my Simmies.
Ellen had Natural Cook locked in. Here she is!
She’s unique looking, and I genuinely like her! Yay trait card!
Evie had Charismatic locked in (How much did I score with locked in traits? Cooking and Charisma? Could’ve been SOO much worse!)
I’m sorry, but Evie is a bad ass, and I hope her trait card captured that.
**LATE EDIT: Evie actually likes lobster thermidore, not chili con carne. Oops.
So… Fail. Red wavy underline not liking “Evie” captured is a fail. Different sized fonts… fail. HOWEVER! I still love them both, and I love their trait cards. So deal with my fail. It was my first time!
I wanted to go boy/girl/boy/girl so technically it would be a boy’s turn… but both Evie and Ellen are pretty spectacular… And Erik & Elaine are in the running. Might have to capture more grown up spoiler pics of them for heir poll? Or only include Evan, Ellen & Evie. Who knows!
This was a VERY LONG (and very exhausting) post, and I’m totally over it. So hey. Next time something will happen, I’m sure of it. Until then, Cheers, hugs, <3s and Happy Simming!
