Hey Friends! Last time Lavender took over and struggled to find a mate, but this time well… if you can’t tell from the title, we found someone! Let’s get to it!
Zale Check! Krypton is reading on his tablet.
Sam is sleeping.
As human’s are wont to do.
Lavender is still enjoying her mudbath.
Too many man troubles. Calmud take me away.
Levi is stinky and pumping iron.
He sure works out a lot. I’m telling ya, he did NOT like being called “chubby Krypton”.
Leslie is hanging out with the horses in the barn.
I love my barn.
Bailey is out napping in the snow.
I do not like my elder horsey snow napping, but he seems pretty comfortable… ❤
Lacey is in her stall.
I think she is such a gorgeous horse, but she doesn’t photograph well since she’s so dark.
Baby Leah is about to take a nap on the barn floor…
…Since she still route fails when she tries to do it in the barn. 😦
I just love my horses!
Leah loves her daddy too.
It’s birthday time!
’bout time for Leslie and Levi to grow up! Rather interesting, Leslie was like 8 days younger than Levi. I got a pop-up for Levi’s birthday, and thought Leslie would be right after that, but NOPE, so I checked her stats, and she was WAY younger! I was all “I thought they were twins?” and had to go re-read their birth post to see… anyhoo…
I hardly recognize Lavender in her work outfit.
Leslie rolls great kisser – joining loves the outdoors, grumpy, disciplined and supernatural fan.
Worth noting that she grew up in one of best EA outfits I’ve seen in a LONG time.
A quick little makeover to fix her hair and give her favorite color some attention and VIOLA!
Leslie! Her LTW is Martial Arts Master, same and her grandmother Juniper.
Levi rolls star quality – joining eccentric, bot fan, athletic and artistic.
HOLY MUSCLES. All that working out as a teen seems to have taken effect! Good heavens! His outfit isn’t bad either.
But seriously, look at this guy.
Look at those thighs! I added some body hare to distract from his freakish shape.
I also gave him a dorky ITF hairstyle.
His LTW is Illustrious Author.
I let them eat their cake…
…then it’s ADIOS!
Note: I selected “kick out” but they vanished. I think there aren’t enough houses in town. Dang.
No one left but Krypton & Samali, Lav and the horses.
At least they’re all pretty happy!
This is Lavender’s cute “athletic” outfit that I made for her.
I keep forgetting to have her change into it to go riding. But ti’s been so cold, she’s been wearing her outerwear.
I’m just so happy with Lavender and the horses.
It was definitely a nice turn for the Zales.
Hmm, that dude Barrington, who Lavender met through online dating, and then stalked to his home only to find out he’s married, had a daughter.
I do not approve of their use of my name.
Silly baby still can’t nap with her momma.
I thought it might’ve been the wall light, so I scooted it all the way over by the hay (and it’s not snowing inside… stupid barn) but that didn’t help either.
And then, even though she routefails half a dozen times, with NO action on my part…
She managed to curl up and fall asleep. Maybe she just can’t be TOLD to nap, and has to nap on her own. Oh, I should probably say, it’s an ISBI, but I control the horses and pets. Always have.
Bailey was well-rested and his exercise need was low, so I had Lav take him on a snowy midnight ride. They ended up here.
I couldn’t quite get proper pictures, because when I hit TAB all these tree branches were in the way, but it was stunning and ethereal. Truly amazing.
I’m bummed he’s an elder. I just adore Bailey.
Lavender finally doesn’t look like she’s flopping around in the saddle anymore.
I feel like it’s been Winter for EVER, too.
It’s Snowflake Day!
Lavender orders a pizza and threw a party! Samali helps out by getting the pizza, carrying it all the way around the house, then serving it next to the BBQ on the back patio. 😐
This little old lady is a party crasher named Sofia.
She brought presents, so she can stay. And also, there’s that Shaun guy. I’m going to let Lav try ONE MORE TIME with him. This is also when I realized that Levi and Leslie had vanished. There were not on the list of Sims available for invite.
Livid certainly makes an entrance!
She fell on her butt a moment later, HA!
Lilac is here too!
Lavender calls everyone to open presents.
I found the three sisters sitting together adorable. But then my game crashed! I thought I’d lost a ton of playtime, but when I restarted it was just before the party!
Okay, party take two – this time it appears that Lilac is the one who’s been busy in the future.
And this woman is our party crasher this time.
Her name is Vallari Chandra.
Then my game crashed AGAIN. Fine – no party for you.
Lav still had the wish locked in to order a pizza, so I still did that a third time, then sent her and Lacey off for a ride, but HARK! A MALE!
Ride aborted. Begin operation seduce pizza man. His name is Kyle Sleater.
Okay Lav, he’s a little boring – maybe even faceone – but let’s just see, shall we?
He’s a compatible sign!
AND he’s single.
WE HAVE ROMANCE, PEOPLE!
He didn’t stick around for long, but that’s okay!
We made some progress on finding a mate!
What. The hell. Is this?
Good heavens. A mouse over told me it is Gretchen Bedlington – but how freaky?
Oh. Apparently it’s a very late trick-or-treater. It’s actually SNOWFLAKE day, not Spooky Day.
But at least we’re not being invaded by blue alien children.
And my game crashed. AGAIN. I went and cleared my cache files, did a little clean up, and it definitely ran better.
However, since my game had been so finicky, I had saved JUST after meeting Kyle.
So on the plus side, we get a boyfriend out of him, this time around.
And as cute as they are together compatibility wise…
…he’s definitely a faceone.
I have them head off on a date anyway.
Maybe I’ll have to give him a makeover?
I do like them together.
I was out with Lav on her date when the camera panned home…
…It’s Krypton’s birthday! Oops. Sorry buddy. I hate missing former TH birthdays.
He isn’t impressed.
I decide that all those years of flowing hair, that he’d go a little bald in his old age, and finally grew out that stubble to a proper beard.
I think he looks flippin’ adorable. Very “Grandpa Eccentric Alien”.
Back to Lavender’s date, I decide that I need to get Kyle out of his work clothes. I have them head on over to the public pool and make them dive in.
I was surprised to see that hair hiding under his hat.
After their outing to the pool, Kyle and Lavender return to her house.
Kyle may have gotten a little tan while at the pool. Hee hee hee… I had to change his face some, he was absolutely Faceone. I sculpted his nose, cheekbones, chin and mouth, and I obviously darkened his skin. He had those purple-ish eyes all on his own, however. I think he looks amazingly handsome – if I do say so myself. I know it’s a little cheaty – and I was planning on taking Lavender to the future to spouse hunt, but the two of them genuinely were getting along so well.
Oh look! He’s childish!
Reminds me of Ramon. Aw.
Check out this couple!
I love him.
In the steam of the sauna (which we did NOT have cheaty woohoo in) we ask him to move in.
Welcome to the household, Kyle!
Check out those traits! I’ve never had unstable before. I didn’t even look when I had in him CAS, so this was all a surprise! Rebellious, unstable, childish and dramatic… he’s like, the poster Sim for mental health awareness.
I swear, it’s been Winter forEVER.
Lav and Bailey enjoy another ride together. ❤
Lavender went looking for friends and colleagues to interview for her job. She’s had a couple promotions and now needs to write up events and people.
Upon returning home, the new couple enjoy a meal together.
Looks like an interesting conversation?
Speaking of the new couple, I think it’s about time they made this permanent!
Kyle is so funny and emotional!
He pulls these lovely crying faces… He thinks about her all happy, and Lav thinks about when she can head off for her next ride. Too funny.
Sam and her daughter talk about the snow together.
Samali is ready for grandbabies!
Alas! Look at what has happened!
Is this something I can take care of without controlling him?
Oh dear, he barely knows who he is?
I’ll have to send him to the hospital – make it his one YA action – it’s just before the wedding! We can’t have him like this…
I hope he’ll be okay.
There’s an event happening later today!
But before the wedding, there’s also a couple birthdays today.
I trigger them so they do not interfere with the festivities later.
Leah is becoming a full grown horse!
She looks nearly exactly the same – just bigger.
I honestly found her spots more appealing when she was a baby – grown up she looks a little silly to me. But I still love her.
I caught these two in an adorable hug.
Just before Sam’s birthday!
In her swimsuit…
The whole household arrives to cheer.
Ha, everyone’s face.
Sam is NOT impressed.
But I think she looks just lovely.
I decide that all those years of reading fatigued her eyes, so she wears glasses now.
Some of the wedding guests have arrived!
I forgot that I gave Livid a full on makeover that would work if she won the TH poll, so she looks like a bride! We can’t have that…
There we go.
Um, excuse me maid? Go around maybe?
They’re all crooked now, thanks dude.
The guests are adorable.
The woman on the left is one of Lavender’s co-workers.
My little indoor Winter wedding. Krypton in his athletic gear really ties the party together.
And then of course, first dance as husband and wife.
Even though he kept stepping on her feet.
While Livid eats wedding cake, she also adopts a puppy!
Hey Liv? You’re being a bit of a creeper.
Your sudden outfit change does not make things better…
It’s okay though, Kyle only has eyes for his new wife.
The moment the last guest had left, Lavender pops pregnancy stage one.
Phew! Close call! I keep getting fortunate. Ike and Tahiya got married while she was pregnant too – just finished in the nick of time! Lavender immediately wishes for a boy – so do I!
She scurries off to tell her mom and dad.
(She actually told Kyle first, but he was outside in the dark on the waterslide, so I couldn’t get a good picture)
You’re going to be a grandma, Samali!
And with that, the first of Generation M is on the way! AMAZING!
That’s all for now! Come back soon to see what’s next in store for those Zany Zales! Happy Simming!
