Hello! Long time no see! I know I haven’t updated in FOREVER (for me anyway!) Last time Ralen headed out on a free vacation and the kids were left to their own devices, causing many a fail. Which I now document because I keep score! Wahoo! Let’s see what those Zany Zales get up to next!
We begin with a Zale Check! OH YEAH – I had forgotten that Helen and Ramon were away on vacation… here’s Irene who has been passing out left, right and center walking around in the desert.
It’s a long walk from here… I hope she does okay.
There. All better. ❤ Ike likes Western music and the color turquoise, and I had to use the boat bed. Because it’s a BOAT BED. Nuff said.
Yes. I made him do it… Doesn’t count. I couldn’t have him sleeping in David’s old dungeon bed.
Please come home soon, Helen. Iris needs you.
The Zales were incredibly good children while their parents were away…
…they didn’t break things, and they kept up on their studies. Iris suffered a little, and there were some fails, but overall, I’m very pleased with them.
And our future TH Ike is being adorable.
I’m sorry you haven’t seen enough of him to grow attached. I promise to focus on him a little bit more so you can all fall in love with him, and not wish a girl was taking over. I love each and every Ralen child, they’re my favorites to date in this legacy. I know the girls are spectacular, but Ike’s good too. 🙂 I cannot possible go back on B/G/B/G after making it this far.
Helen is on a mission for interviews so she can write up her reports, get promoted and top her LTW! She’s had so many babies that she’s going very slowly. I really want her to be successful! Thinking of no better Sims to interview, I look for the SimSelves! I mouse over their house, and it tells me that “Sammy is at the Beach” I was unbelievably lucky to find her on the first try!
Julia is here too!
Aww, you two are so cute, I’m so glad you’re friends!
So… then this happened…
Then froze and fell to the ground.
Her poor little face! HELEN! DO SOMETHING!
Helen whips into her own outerwear upon realizing it was chilly. TAKE NOTES, JULIA.
And then thaws her out with her handy dandy pocket size travel battery powered blow dryer.
I couldn’t find Sammy, so I’m assuming she had the sense to get out of the cold, but I was very worried about Julia, so we invited her home for a hot meal.
Please stop being blue soon. Please. The Zale house is very warm. I promise.
Yes yes, Ramon is sexy. The dude with the Cheesesteaks near Ivy? That’s Ivy’s Romantic Interest from her prom. His name is Ethan, AND he’s cute, AND he brought food. But he wasn’t invited. I let him stay.
I then discovered Julia heart-farting Ramon on the lawn, I was messing with my camera angle, some jackass with an umbrella was in the way… and the GAME CRASHED (SIGH) If I hadn’t actually kind of needed a new computer, I would have returned this… game still crashes.
SO, after a quick reboot to see how bad the damage is… we’re back here with blue Julia.
I go ahead and question her again, since I really DO need Helen to complete the reports… And since I know it’s coming, I film it.
I’m sorry for the pauses and the lightning quick accidental tab zoom on Julia’s boob… but there you have it. Helen unthaws Laserkatt. So much fun. We also didn’t bother to take her home and feed her. Good luck Julia! (She was fine)
I then realize that I hadn’t made Ivanna a bedroom either. I’m actually almost out of bedrooms in this giant house, there’s only one left… but it’s very large.
It’s the one David and Meredith shared. It will house Ivanna and Iris. I promise I’ll make it.
Then I get a bunch of birthday notifications. I got so many I had to check to make sure I wasn’t still on The Lightning’s lifespans. I wasn’t.
Before my game crashed, I was just going to have Imogene’s birthday, then do the “almosts” in a couple days. But AFTER the crash, I said screw it, let’s do it. I know it makes Imogene and Ike exactly the same age, but hey – what’s two days? So we’re going to have a party!
Oh. She won’t.
With her kids having all blown out their candles Helen takes a moment to blow out hers.
And look! Julia and Sammy care about Helen!
Do you have to have a good relationship to show up at the cake? Helen is “good friends” with both ladies, and as soon as she went to blow out her candles, they came! They don’t even know the rest of the clan… I wonder if that’s why Julia always plays with their musical instruments and Sammy throws darts? Oh well, they came this time!
And I love it. *wipes tear*
Before Helen goes and sparkles, Iris finally turns into a child.
She’s now an evil, disciplined Sim who cannot stand art. She’s very sweet looking… for being evil. No braids for her. She is one of the few Ralen children to NOT inherit Ramon’s eye color. It isn’t Helen’s either, and I actually think it’s Alejandro’s. That evil bastard has sure lingered. Almost everyone has his nose. Actually, I think they ALL might have his nose.
Here’s Helen’s greenish blue eyes.
Having an excellent party!
From Helen’s POV, it’s so sweet. All her children (well, Imogene and Ike just left with cake slices) her husband, her half brother David, her friend and old butler Meredith, and her new friends Sammy and Juila… *sniff* tis beautiful, it tis.
She has a few new distinguished lines, but I think she looks amazing.
She also is having a midlife crisis… oh well, don’t care. She needs a new look, so I give her one.
And I LOVE it. Helen was an only girl in a sea of brothers, and has led the Zales to another fine generation. Ike, her only son, will do just as well, I’m certain!
Just like I promised, Iris and Ivanna get they’re room renovated.
No art on Iris’ walls. Ivanna’s bed is the mostly white (her favorite color) and Iris’ is mostly green (her favorite color). I just discovered that lamp, that’s why they each got one. TOO CUTE. The easel is probably a LITTLE too close to Iris’ bed, but whatever. She doesn’t have to use it.
That means ALL of the rooms in the Zale house have finally been decorated. Oops, except Ralen’s… I’ll have to take care of that.
Now that Imogene is also insane, we’re going to have to get used to her outfit changes.
Her favorite color is black, and that’s her formal attire. And hmm, I used similar carpet in Irene’s room, but it’s lime and cream striped in her room. It’s Irish green and white in Ivanna and Iris’… Oh well.
And that’s all for this post! I had a ton of fun playing with my adorable Zales again. Maybe I’ll get another post up this weekend. Come see us again soon! Until next time, Happy Simming!
