Hey Hey, Kids! Welcome back to another Fancy installment of the Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy! Juniper, the resident Zalien won the heir poll, and now it’s time to get on with the post!
As always, we begin with a ZALE CHECK!
Law Enforcement Officer Tahiya is walking away from the party.
Ike is wanting some cake.
Jillian is eating cake.
Jenny opts for PB&J
Somewhat healthier I suppose. Not that they eat the crusts, those picky Sims.
James is looking like a dork.
As he’s known to do…
Juniper, future TH is caught cracking her knuckles.
Lovely idle animations.
Lastly we have July…
About to eat some cake.
Now that you’re all caught up on the current residents and their whereabouts, it’s time to move on! Jillian and Jenny are YA’s, so it’s adieu to those two!
I move them out together. I hope they enjoy each others company.
And then there were five.
So nice! Don’t mind the fact that James is selected. Ike’s portrait never consistently reflected his makeover, so I kept confusing the two of them.
I’m going to miss Ike, when the torch passing time comes.
But fortunately, there’s 11 days until Juniper’s YA birthday, so we still have some time together.
My game kept crashing, and nothing was happening – so here’s a picture of July staring at a plate.
Because why not? And she’s adorable and I’m sad she’s not the heir.
About 10 IRL days past between that picture and the next time I managed to get the Zales up and running.
We reconvene with Ike rolling a wish to teach July to drive! Having learned from others, apparently the Motive Mobile is the way to go.
It’s ugly – no doubt, but for driving lessons, it’s supposed to be supreme. AND IT IS! Their motives were full in NO TIME. WHY HAVE I NOT USED THIS BEFORE!?!
I was watching the future TH while Ike and July were out learning to drive…
…and I discovered she has the World Renowned Surgeon LTW, which is BORING and Erik Zale already did that… She has enough LTH to buy the Change LTW reward, which we will purchase for her as soon as we can.
Meanwhile. Ugh. This guy…
I hate this guy. I can’t wait until he grows up and moves out. But he did help me reach my self-created goal of at least one child of each gender per generation – so he has served his purpose.
James: mama? Help me mama!
It’s been over 24 hours since Ike and July went on their “Learn to Drive” adventure… while they were out and about, James got a pop up that his pal Pal wanted to come out and play.
Since he’s at this lovely ladies house, why not? Oh. I can’t. He doesn’t have an IF in his inventory. Just kidding!
Over 36 hours later – July finally learns to drive.
Dang! That took ages!
I should not let Ike play instruments when the children need to be getting ready for school…
Or need to be going to SLEEP.
James is an idiot.
This dude is named Tristan. He’s freezing and texting the mailman.He lives on the lawn now. So that’s always nice.
Tahiya also managed to get promoted!
Awesome! She needs reports now, so I’m sure this is her final promotion, but I’m super proud of her anyway! Huzzah!
James pretends to be a kitty, but the girls do their homework right away.
Such nice girls!
Tahiya gets home from work and instantly puts July in a time-out.
I have no idea why!
Aw, poor baby!
Ike’s at work for the next four hours, so there’s not much I can do for her!
Then Tahiya breaks the computer.
The trash compactor is broken too!Lovely.
Nice Tahiya. Thanks.I even watched her exclaim “I NEED TO PEE!” then she went and did the dishes first. -5
Then Ike gets an interesting phone call.
Tahiya Shalut is already his wife! I said “yes” just to see what happened.
Nothing. Nothing happened.
After peeing herself, taking a shower, and prank calling her husband for a fake date, Tahiya plays some pool.At least she isn’t practicing idiot trick shots that shoot billiard balls at her already misshapen nose.
James proves to be a tiny bit less worthless by completing his homework.While his sister Juniper eats cake
July is also about ready to do some studying.
Ike is at work…
ERMAGHERD! I thought Ike had two more promotions to go! Not just one!
His LTW is complete! +40
Tahiya has also just finished a painting!
And I don’t hate it! Excellent!
Ike: Hey wife…(Flirt Flirt)
Nice Painting… 😉
I told you guys Ike was horny.
That’s two WooHoo with his wife wishes. One is WooHoo with Tahiya, the other Tahiya Zale. Both wishes were granted with the same WooHoo.
Uh Oh – Looks like James is going to try his hand at the food processor pool trick!
Duck you moron!
PHEW! Just in the nick of time!
Hey! We hired a mixologist!
It’s Spooky Day so her attire is actually appropriate. How nice.
I have Ike test her wares prior to the arrival of any guests.
You know, just to be safe.
Tahiya is a bunny!
Juniper a tiger!
Could be worse.
Jenny is a burglar, and Sammy a doctor…
But more importantly, the GRILL IS ON FIRE!
OMG YOU IDIOTS!
Get out of the way!
Ike couldn’t get through to put out the flames…
So we have to call the fire department!
Have you ever seen such a cluster?!?
WHY CAN’T THE ZALES HAVE A NICE PARTY.
Aaaannnd the first party guest has caught on fire.
This is party crasher William Pace. Juniper is doing her Daredevil best to save him.
Guy on Fire: This party is terrible!
Just behind him, Jenny Zale in the burglar costume has also ignited. NO NO NO NO NO!
My. This is not good.
Tahiya: Irene is on fire!
I KNOW! I CAN SEE! NOT IRENE!
Fireperson: Whelp, can’t get through – you’re all gonna die
Ivy in the Foreground: OH THE SIMMANITY!
Irene: engulfed in flames
Juniper is earning my affections and trying SO HARD to extinguish everyone.
I appreciate you brave Zalien! (Robot dude is David Brunson! Meredith and Giles’ love child.)
Things look dire for Jenny and Irene.
Please… No more tragic Zale party deaths!
Welcome to a Zale Party.
*Sigh* Irene in flames: This party sucks!
The chaos refuses to cease!
Just jump in the pool! SOMEONE PUSH THEM IN THE POOL!
We manage to get Jenny put out!
And she remains singed but unharmed.
And thanks to Junipers heroic efforts…
Amidst all the chaos…
We manage to save Irene too!
She too, is singed but unharmed. I thought for SURE she was a goner!
Ike tried to make spaghetti to salvage the party…
But nearly everyone had left just after the fire was completely extinguished.
This is all who remained to eat the meal…
And even though it was a total disaster, the party was a “modest success”.
This here is July in her cowgirl costume being a cutie.
Have to have SOMETHING positive from the evening’s events.
Ike performs a piece on the guitar…
…And Jillian poses. Cute.
Married couple after pyro party activity:
Aw, she’s still in her bunny costume.
The Zalien practiced shuffleboard all night.
Still dressed like a tiger. Rawr.
Have I mentioned James is a moron? Well he is. This is where he has chosen to do his homework.
The girls at the exact same moment?
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
While nothing of note happens within the family – this dude goes and dies on the lawn during a full moon.
July, drawn outside to witness the death, decides to build a snowman right in front of the door.
We’ll see how this pans out later… Thankfully I have winter set extra short in Lucky Palms – doesn’t seem like a very wintery kinda place.
Full moons always bring out all the ghosties, so I check on the Zales of generations past.
I found Traci making a snowman, dear Imogene just haunting that lamp, Shelley on the trampoline, and Giles disgusted by her ghastliness. It was so nice to see Imogene! And as tragic as her death was, it’s cool to see a ghost that hadn’t died of old age.
So, another first! Juniper chargers her brain power…
While her father has a bite to eat.
It’s rather creepy, actually!
She makes weird faces and is frozen like that until her brain power meter is full. Spooky.
There is a party looming!
We’ve all been waiting!
It’s birthday time for James and Juniper!
James’ was actually today, and Juniper’s in just a couple, so I went for it!
Oh look… Jenny and Irene are still singed from their last visit.
Apparently their homes are not equipped with showers… lovely.
James goes first!
I’m looking forward to being rid of him!
He rolls computer whiz to go with clumsy, good, loves the outdoors and insane.
I give him a nerdy look.
It’s TH TIME!
Ike’s generation is coming to a close!
Juniper rolls nurturing to go with clumsy, genius, disciplined and dare devil.
Wooee! Look at that profile!
Your TH, ladies and gentlemen. 😐
After a little makeover, I present to you…
I kick James out with artistic silhouette lighting…
…And that’s that!
Like previously mentioned, I cash in Juniper’s LTH to change her LTW and we have…
Martial Arts Master! I have never attempted this before, we’re going to be spending a LOT of time in China!
