So hello! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long – it’s the holidays and whatnot. OH! I also finally found myself actually enjoying TS4 and really wanted to play that… so I told myself if I got a Zale update done, I could play TS4. So this is a Zale update! (I had fun, too – so that’s good) Get situated and ready for another fancy installment of the Zales!
ZALE CHECK! Because seriously, who are these guys again? OH RIGHT, Samali is first up, and she’s just standing around.
And so is her husband, Krypton.
And those more astute readers might see that Lavender is ALSO just standing there.
I am entertaining photo taking blogger extraordinaire.
Let’s see if the rest are more interesting…
Kyle is asleep.
Aha! Little Meg is actually doing something!
TO THE WATERSLIDE! WEE!
Here’s Mary asleep in her crib.
I love her little outfit.
Mango found this dastardly toy.
*Cheat deletes it*
Melody is also asleep in her crib.
Here little cherry jammies are cute too!
Lacey & Leah are hanging out with the ice cream truck.
There – you now remember everyone who’s in the house!
Lavender rolled a wish to invite someone over, so I had Lilac and Livid stop by.
Lavender needs interviews, so it’s shrubbery questioning time. Except Lilac agreed to be interviewed, ran off to pee, and then left. FINE.
Perhaps Livid will be more helpful.
Of course Livid is more agreeable, she was a definite favorite of mine!
I’ll make sure Lavender writes up something nice.
Krypton, you’re scaring me, old man.
He is like, MEGA working out, and pouring sweat.
Sam is taking care of the toddlers who have woken up hungry and demanding.
Such a sweet grandma. ❤
I finally remembered to mark Lavender with “The Gnome”.
She’s rolled a couple midlife crises wishes. One to flirt with someone else, and one to flirt with this guy, Dakota.
So here she is flirting…
Also, I don’t want to make this a wasted visit, so we decide to interview him too.
Somewhere right about now, Lavender leveled up in her Charisma skill, and rolled a wish to use a “Charming Introduction”
So we wake up his pregnant wife to give that a go.
Real classy there, Lavender.
Then – the most amazing thing to ever happen in the history of this blog – happens.
Kenji’s skinny old face failed to load, but WHO CARES! There’s going to be a spare baby! First one EVAR!
Back at the house, Lavender takes over the child rearing duties, and grants a ton of wishes she had rolled, and continued to roll for her kids.
Pretty stinkin’ cute.
The girls end up in the swings…
…Much to Krypton’s enjoyment. Such lovely little toddlers!
There’s still some love and affection between Kyle and Lav too.
Every now and then 🙂
Okay – so get this. I sent Lavender to the fridge to get something to eat, and there was an option to eat a “Sphere of Destiny” What is that? Does anyone know what that is?
It certainly looks weird…
I save before she eats it in case something super frightening happens.
Well, aside from being super weird, and kind of looking like a grapefruit – nothing happened. No moodlet, nothing weird… nada. Never seen anything like that before?
This kid aged up immediately after? And he’s alarming looking…I don’t have any berry Sims…
Anyhoo, so I get this pop up…
And it would normally be REALLY great!! Except like, two pop-ups previously I was notified that he’s about to die. Way to go Lilac. Marry a man on his death bed. Maybe he’ll manage to knock her up before he pops his cogs? We’ll see!
*Spoiler: he doesn’t*
FINALLY OFF TO WORK! All those pregnancies have really held Lavender back. I actually doubt she’ll complete her LTW.
Let’s get some promotions!
Hi sweet Sam!
Your lifebar is full. 😦
So is yours, Krypton –
But you work out CONSTANTLY.
Pretty limber for 92!
This incredibly unique bald boy said he wanted to come home with Meg after school.
I said “SURE!”
But you need some hair first. I think they’d make cute babies. Is that weird? That’s weird. Because they’re just kids.
Speaking of babies – it’s Mary’s birthday!
She rolls “Star Quality”
And I choose to embrace that new trait.
I normally find the face paint make-up a little silly, but something about Mary (ha, that could be a movie title) pulls it off, and I think she’s fantastic!
See? Isn’t she cute?
She’s on her way to play on the playground, which is adorable in itself. I couldn’t get any good pictures though, it was too dark.
In robotic voice: Parenting complete.
Aw, so cute! Lavender wanted to pillow fight, and Meg wanted to get attention from mom…
It’s win/win! Don’t wake up Kyle though! And funny he’s thinking about a chipmunk. There’s been one running in circles near the miner I’ve never touched for like, two Sim years. I can hear it from time to time, and I’ve seen it too. I keep waiting for it to vanish, but it never seems to. I might have to catch it some day.
To prevent the upcoming potential of pestering everyone in the house, I have Lavender read Mary to sleep in her new big girl bedroom.
That’s ONE who won’t be a bother.
Meg must have managed to get to sleep too, while I wasn’t paying attention, because here’s the little cuties in their cutie pajamas the next morning.
Too bad the bus is going to come in about seven seconds. No pancakes for you.
Ooh, Meg! You turkey!
Maybe she DIDN’T get to sleep. She was almost there. -5
On the plus side, Livid had her baby!
Sweet! A little girl named Abbey!
I scoured the neighborhood to try to find Livid, Kenji and Abbey’s house, and I finally established that they live here.
No one is home, so I guess we’ll just
peek in the windows, come back some other time, wait patiently dig through their trash.
Lavender DOES have reports to write…
Dude, she looks possessed.
Like you woke up because you heard noises, you grab your flashlight and run outside only to find a raccoon digging through your garbage with a Cheetos bag about to cut you. Lavender is that raccoon.
Ahem – Kenji and family never came home, but Lavender dug up some dirt on him (literally) and writes him up.
It was a negative report, because it was my only option.
The next day Lavender finally gains entrance into Kenji and Livid’s home.
Livid and Abbey were no where to be found. She waited around until the wee house, and bought her new niece a crib, since the house didn’t have one, but Livid and Abbey never appeared. I double checked, they DO live together… WHATEVER. I didn’t want to see the boring pink burrito baby anyway (except I totally did).
After Lavender spent the entire day, and well into the night away from the Zale estate, I return home and spy this:
Toddler Fail. -5 From Melody, but I don’t blame her. Way to take care of things Sam, Krypton and Kyle!
It’s Spooky Day! So the Zales (and freakin’ everyone else) show up at the Fall Festival!
It was very crowded.
A bunch of cute townies enjoyed a pie eating contest.
I tried to get a Zale involved, but I was too late.
Livid was at the festival in her career outfit!
I still can’t find her baby 😦
And way to go Kyle.
Apple bobbing time (Ha, I totally just typed boobing and had to fix it)
Lavender gets one!
So does Mary!
I just adore Mary – ever so much.
Kyle got his face painted again.
Very fancy. Goes great with your pee soaked pants.
And there’s Krypton and Mango in the background and…
Right in front of the BABY!?! Oh man.
Poor Meg and Krypton.
But if you want a good turn out for mourning, die at a public place on a holiday.
Lots of people stopped to cry. Or at least gawk.
Sam departs with the same grace she brought to her time in the Zale house.
Fare thee well, woman with fifty books in her inventory now transferred to Krypton, Fare thee well.
Oh the heartbreak.
And need to pee. And a nice view.
What the!?! We JUST GOT HOME FROM THE FESTIVAL!
Krypton: I WANT PANCAKES!
On the plus side, we’ll only have to suffer 2 days of mourning for 2 losses… so there’s that.
Krypton: PLEASE! LET ME HAVE MY PANCAKES!
Death: No pancakes for you.
Lavender: DAD TOO!?! *Cries and cries and wails for ever*
I’ll eat your pancakes, Daddy.
More pancakes for me.
So, on the flip side, Kyle finally gets a grown up bedroom.
He’s been sleeping in Livid’s old room since he moved in.
And ya know… this:
Kyle: Let’s make babies!
Lavender: DAD! I MISS YOU.
I know, sweet Mary – it’s pretty sad.
But just be grateful you only have to mourn once. Seriously – it’s a huge benefit.
I like her cute little outfit.
Note: I was pretty sure something interesting would happen regarding the build up and pictures below. Absolutely nothing happens.
Kyle is the only adult home.
Lavender is at work, and Sam and Krypton just died so…
It’s up to him and him alone to take care of the toddlers.
So far so good.
Aaaannd… sat happily in the swings like little cherubs until Lavender got home from work. Kyle is still asleep. So yeah. That happened. That being nothing.
Lavender got promoted to level five!
And wait. Those are cakes.
I guess I don’t have the promotion picture. Ahem… There’s an event today!
Lilac is here!
Livid is too!
I’m not sure we’ll see this again, so toddler flower trail!
It’s Meg’s birthday!
He’s so cute.
Meg rolled ambitious! And this is how she aged up.
Even her shoes match! Way to not fail EA random outfit! I’ll still give her a make-over but not bad!
During the birthdays, Lavender rolled this…
It’s only during wishes like this that I can figure out how much their worth. Almost $700k! For 12 generations, that’s really not that much, but with only one person under my rule, that’s not too bad!
Back to the birthdays, Mango adds absent-minded to green thumb and athletic.
Plant-tastic! See all that greenery under his clothes? I thought it was his clothes, but it’s his SKIN! Awesome!
But we’re not done with birthdays, it’s Melody’s too!
Hey look! He still leaves a trail!
Melody rolls virtuoso to join excitable and easily impressed.
Yeah, that’ll need a make-over.
Livid breaks out this future instrument (and is terrible at it)
And Lilac mourns her deceased husband.
They were married for like, two days.
Anyhoo, here’s Meg!
She’s ambitious, easily impressed, shy and a loner. I tried to embrace shy in her new look. I just love her.
And here we have sweet Melody!
And our plant-man Mango!
What a little darling!
Just after the party, and everyone has left – I get another pop-up!
Lilac is re-marrying on the rebound. Can’t tell if he’s an elder or not – I hope NOT!
One last thing before we go…
Nooboo! Hopefully NoobooS! I gave both Kyle and Lavender the fertility treatment. I kinda hope it’ll be a couple boys, or at least ONE boy – but even if it isn’t, that’s okay, I’m pretty keen on Mango.
But that’s all for now! So do come back and join us next time! Until then, Happy Simming!
