YOU Should Think of the Children! (Heir Poll) 4.11

Oh HI!  I didn’t see you there!  Well, since you’ve stopped by, welcome to another Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy post!  We’re happy to see you.  Last time stuff happened.  And if you care you can click here to read the last the post.  Recap FINISHED.

We begin with this LOVELY notification
freezing Erik!

Well of course he’s freezing.  He’s a fifth generation IDIOT and playing in the sprinklers at 2 am on an early spring (40 degrees F) day…
Screenshot
Yeah Erik.  You shiver.  You suffer your own bad decisions.

Meanwhile, Daisy broke the TV.
Screenshot-2
I then made her fix the TV
Screenshot-3
I documented this in case she died.  She didn’t.  Aren’t you glad you stopped by?  Me too.  It may or may not improve from here.

Well… on a positive note, the B Generation haunts together!
Screenshot-4
Isn’t that cute?  Bettina and Leif.  Aw.

Leif: Oh, were you trying to take a picture?
Screenshot-5
HERE’S MY FACE!  *PHOTOBOMB*  Yes yes. Hello Leif.  I miss your money ❤.

And, after much experience with our cowardly TH, we all know what a ghost sighting means…Screenshot-6
Yes Daisy, we all know how scared you are of Leif…  Hurry up and pass out so we can move on.

Daisy: OKAY!
Screenshot-7
Good.  Let’s proceed, shall we?

Aw, look at cute little Elaine!
Screenshot-8
Or perhaps we meant VIOLENT ELAINE!
Screenshot-9
*SMASH SMASH SMASH*

Oh Cyrus… you are SUCH a DWEEB!
Screenshot-10
But where are you heading?
TO THE SPRING FESTIVAL! (Note:  I leave Duchess at home this time…)
Car full of family:
Screenshot-11
Which is totally cute, and all – but like way more of them are stashed in the trunk or something…

See?
Screenshot-12
They all rode here together.

And SCATTER!
Screenshot-13
Have fun!

Ellen starts us of by searching for Festival Eggs…
Screenshot-14
I think she might’ve stepped on one.

Evie throws horseshoes!
Screenshot-15

OMG Cyrus… I don’t think you’ve ever been so cute.
Screenshot-16
Old man Cyrus FTW!

And there’s LOTS of dancing!
Screenshot-17
Aren’t they adorbs?  Except Blonde 70s Bunch Family Reject.  Not invited.

I was constantly clicking down the family list to see what they were all up to.
Screenshot-18
Apparently “Hate the Outdoors” Elaine had had enough “outside” and sent herself home.  Loser.

Oh… Ellen… Too cute…
Screenshot-19
Horseshoes take concentration!

More groovin’ over on da dance floor!
Screenshot-20
Evie has fun with half the Bunch clan.  Darlene like, Jazzercizes all over the place.  You had to be there, but LOL.

Daisy rolls a wish for face painting… so SURE!
Screenshot-21
Aw Dais… you are so great! ❤

Ellen and Darlene sync their horseshoe games…
Screenshot-22
…And apparently Darlene put on pants since her dance routine.

Daisy decides to try out the kissing booths!
Screenshot-23
Girls too!
Screenshot-24
(I’m taking this to my GRAVE!)

And then I decide Daisy’s pretty hot, so let us try rockin’ the booth ourselves!
Screenshot-25
Blows Kisses:
Screenshot-26
Well… that was surprisingly uneventful…

While the Zales tear up the Spring Festival, I spot no one other than…
Screenshot-27
Traci!  She’s at the restaurant with Madison VanWatson.  Hi Traci!!

The Zales are all having a fine time, but fading fast!  We return home to…
Screenshot-28…Daphne!  What the hell are you doing here?!?  It’s evening.  I cannot prepare waffles for you.

NOTE:  At this very moment – after paying all this recent and disgusting attention to the children, I actually catch a rolled LTW or two.  Evan rolls “Leader of the Free World”, I locked it in.  Evie rolled a wish to be friends with 15 dogs, but f-that.  Also, Daisy has LTH points coming out of her ears, so I buy a “Young Again” potion, never know when you might want one!

Moving on – we return home, and the family stands around socializing like normal people…
Screenshot-29…weird.

Gus snaps us back to IDIOT reality with this face…
Screenshot-30
… yeah gross.  Don’t do that again, ‘kay?  Thanx.  *GAG*

Speaking of faces, we all know this one…
Screenshot-31
Erik Pee Fail.  Good job child.

Daisy, however, LOVES her family – fails included.  So she promptly sports her new family portrait…
Screenshot-32
…on the bar of course, so she can wash away the idiocy with liquor juice, and bask in the cuteness.

**CYRUS UPDATE** He’s 82 days old and has 189894 LTH  (in case he goes and dies)

Oh goody…
Screenshot-33
…It’s the daycare horde.  My favorite kill me now.

Well, Daisy woke up grumpy, so I decide to have her take Duchess for a walk…
Screenshot-34
…Skip this daycare bullshit.  Let Gus do it for his $300 a WEEK.

Aw… Zale Family First – walk a dog.
Screenshot-35
Cute right?  I think so too…

Except Daisy kept bein’ all gimpy with one of her knees…
Screenshot-36
Can you tell?  That is NOT a normal gait…
Screenshot-37
SEE!??!  I laughed SO HARD – and it’s hard to capture in stills.  But it took Daisy and Duchess right near 11 hours to get to their destination, and Daisy gimped on her bad knee the entire time.  I SO KNOW you had to be there, but it was epically hilarious.

So, like I said, 11 hours later, we reach the pool!  And who should we spot!  But Traci!
Screenshot-38
Seriously, I think she stalks the Zales.  She’s always there, but not quite there.  Stalker.

But she IS Daisy’s mom, so they have a breath holding contest…
Screenshot-41
…Daisy lost, but celebrated like an IDIOT…. 😐

POOL PUPPY!
Screenshot-39
Screenshot-40
Having learned my lesson, BTW – I have Daisy pick Duchess up, and they take a cab home.  Look at me all learning and stuff.

And Gus!  He was ALL ALONE, I didn’t even WATCH with the daycare horde today, and look!
Gus does okay
Aw… Good for you Gussie.

Oh.  Then we see this…
Traci's gonna die
She’s gonna DIE!

Well, the kids are only a couple days from a birthday – so PARTY TIME!
Daphne’s the first to show…
Screenshot-46
Cake?!?!  Yes Daph.  Later.  In just a few minutes…

Dahlia shows up too!
Screenshot-44
Then Drake!
Screenshot-47
Guest of honor TRACI!
Screenshot-48
And ruggedly  handsome Dane!
Screenshot-49
HI EVERYONE!

Party shots!
Screenshot-50
Elaine & Erik!
Holy Carp!  (Yes carp – the fish)…
Screenshot-52
…That’s a LOT of Zales!  (and a maid)  WEEEEEE!

Elaine!
Screenshot-53

Erik!
Screenshot-54

And Dahlia pretends she’s a DOG!
Screenshot-57
HA HA HA!

Traci then goes to put a dish in the dishwasher…
Screenshot-58
…And dies.

Evan: OMG It’s so dirty *weeps*  Daisy: OMG the dishwasher, we JUST had it fixed *weeps*
Screenshot-59
Traci:  Oop.  I’m dead.

Almost Everyone: Oh.  Is something happening?
Screenshot-60
Evie: OMG THE DISHWASHER!

Death appeared in the hall, and then walked ALL the way around to collect Traci.  Kinda funny.
Screenshot-61

Oh Cyrus – don’t do this…
Screenshot-62
😦

Screenshot-65
Traci pleads… Death doesn’t care – and it curtains for Traci!

I was far more moved than I thought I would be.  Still not a lot of cares given – but some.  A few cares.

AND WELL – I may or may not have forced Traci to pass away at the party.  I wanted her remains on Zale property so I could bury her and be pissed every time she haunted.  I mean – I got the pop-up!  She was as good as dead!  But then I couldn’t find her worthless little urn anywhere – and I SAW IT before she floated away… 😦  I think it might be gone.

Because I sort of killed her, and couldn’t find her urn – I let everyone mourn.Screenshot-66

For a bit…
Screenshot-67
And then I quit because!!!!

MOTHAFREAKIN’ HEIR POLL!

    I’ve just got caught up! The last chapter was hilarious btw and an awesome idea before the heir poll. I changed my vote to a boy then found out my original choice was in the lead anyway, gah! I can’t believe how sort of sad I was when Traci died, its like the end of an era *sniff*
    I’m excited for the take over, but I’ll fer sure miss Daisy.
    PS. I completely forgot you don’t use CC, should upload the clean sim self to the exchange?

      Hi Amy! I’ve missed you! I miss your Simmies because I’m a dork. I’d love a CC free you! I can’t believe how sort of sad I was too, lol! I’m not even sure I’m excited for the take over. I ❤ Daisy.

    I had to vote for Erik because of those traits. I can only imagine how hilarious he’s going to be. I wish he had Evan’s favorite color though. How can he be a diva and not like hot pink? haha

    I would check the mausoleum in the graveyard and click the ‘manage the dead’ option. I think that’s a regular option… I might just be thinking of a master controller option. I hope you find Traci so you can verbally abuse her ghost 😀

        Thank you for clearing that up haha, the only time I’d ever used the option was when I had master controller installed.
        *cough*I’m totally reading your legacy right now, Hel ftw*cough* ^_^

      Thanks! I’ll go look for Traci at the mausoleum. I didn’t think she’d be there, because when the townie died on the lot, I had her urn. But I didn’t kill the townie? So maybe that’s it?

      I’m SO glad you’re reading LaserKatt’s stuff YAY,

    Aah! Loved this chapter. I voted for Evie, but it wasn’t an easy decision! I’ll miss Traci, too. Hopefully her gravestone isn’t lost forever.

      Hi Kattie! Nice to see you! Poor Evan got no votes, LOL. First born son and everything. At least you liked Evie! her only vote!

    Darn it. I love heir polls. Poor little Evan. I like his hot pink loving cuteness.
    At least a guy won to make you happy.
    So annoyed it’s not Evan. But that’s my punishment for not checking in in a while.

    Maybe? I hope so.
    I feel bad for Traci though…I mean…I don’t exactly miss her but its still sad.

      I agree. I have a lot of “issues” with my treatment of Traci. While I was doing it, I was very happy, but yeah… afterwards – not so much.

    I voud wote for Evie if I could have done it, but I’m like a zillion years late and my fingers keep hitting the wrong key! I can spell I promise! 😀
    Traci… dead…? :O Okay, who’s gonna buy the cake to celebrate? :3
    I love Gus face there; absent-minded face right there 🙂 I love that trait for the face, not for the other stuff. ^^ Yay!! Soon a new gen and one step closer to catch up, hooray…And Gus can do daycare without suppervision? cool :3

      Traci dying was great – I was happy to get her in the Zale burial plot. Gus does surprisingly well at day care without being monitored! Wait til you see the cool toy we got 🙂
