Well hello! What’s this? A Zale update? Awesome! We’re so glad you stopped by. Last time, I left off with a party that crashed the game mid-makeovers. (Although that was before the new hardware! WEE!) So I’m going to skip this Zale Check, and go straight into birthdays! The guests are already on the way.
Birthdays – Take Two:
Melody gets the nurturing trait.
She’s pretty cute, even though I gave her a weird outfit.
Mango gets social butterfly.
I still just love him.
Minnie shows us she’s human.
And per Pink’s suggestion, I have dressed her in polka dots. Her favorite color is pink, however, so I didn’t use Minnie Mouse red. Lavender was the final Zalien, and she had all human (well, and one plant) children.
Mary keeps the party going…
…Long after it’s over.
Our little barre addict is becoming quite graceful!
Not bad, for a plant!
Melody plays that weird Sims Animal game…
Does anyone remember this? It’s kind of like SimsVille – something they started, and started promoting, but then totally stopped? Like the promo video was from 2009. I’m afraid it’s only use now was so our TS3 Sims could have something else to play. Anyhoo…
Outerwear Meg gorges on cake.
I still love Meg. She’s one of my favorites.
Kyle checks out his daughter’s beau.
It’s that Ray guy, I think – Great face, bad hair.
Gah! Lavender you stop that right now!
She’s totally flirting with her brother in law, Kenji – Livid’s husband!
Meg and Mango are NOT thrilled.
Man, I turn my back for ONE second to catch the rest of the family, and THIS happens? Good heavens.
Mango still leaves that awesome flower trail.
I love it, I just wish it didn’t have any audio. It’s kind of creepy and crackly.
Little Minnie was trained her other two skills with the playpen and the walker.
A beautiful, snowy, early morning ride on Lacey.
I’m so over winter, but it’s very pretty.
After ride snuggles.
Lav “loves the cold” Zale makes a snow angel.
Per her wishes.
Video game family bonding.
Lav, Mango and Melody get their sportsing on.
No room for you 😦
OH! How cute!
She just plopped down on the floor to join in!
Mango loves this thing.
Fine with me, since he’ll be heir and his LTW is the acrobat thingie. Can’t be bad for his acrobatics to be graceful and strong!
More polka dot Minnie!
She’s a cutie-patootie.
Kinda fun to have a toddler around after all my TS4-ing.
YAY! Another baby for Livid and Kenji!
I guess flirting with Lavender got Kenji’s motor running.
Kyle here is having a very hard time.
He’s about to become delusional.
I have him take deep breaths.
I couldn’t handle him moaning about. Ugh.
Sheldon invited Meg on a date! I said YES, let’s see how it goes!
I went to her relationship panel to see how strong her relationship with her boyfriend Sheldon is, only to discover that Sheldon is Mary’s boyfriend. I knew both girls got a boyfriend/Romantic Interest from Prom, so I assumed it was the correct gentleman phoning the correct M daughter – but NO. Meg’s RI is Ray. And she’s now on a date with her sister’s boyfriend.
Nice weather and place for a date!
The junkyard in a snowstorm!
Apparently the “in thing” is to come here and build snowmen.
See that hint of blue behind the shrubbery on the left? Some dude, NOT Sheldon, making a snowman.
Meg also makes one…
…next to a shredded couch.
Looks like Sheldon stood her up, maybe he realized he called the wrong sister.
Meg made that alien snowman, then sends herself home like a good girl. I did get a pop up that Sheldon couldn’t make it, but I had missed it at the time. Well good, that’s a little less scandalous.
I’m sure this will end well, Kyle.
I’m not sure what this trick is supposed to do, all my Sims have ever successfully created is a situation where billiard balls fly at their face.
I’m shocked. 😐
Lavender, in her career clothes, gives Minnie a snuggle.
Good ol’ Mango and that barre!
Married couple foosball.
Gotta keep the love alive.
Here’s Melody’s adorable outerwear.
And yes, it’s STILL WINTER.
Uh oh, looks like Kenji’s going to die before his second baby is born.
That’s too bad.
Oh! Never mind!
Well, that’s kind of nice, except it means as soon as the baby pops out, Livid will be a widow with two kids 😦
I’m just passing time, and a little bit bored…
So Kyle and Lavender have some igloo ‘hoo.
AH! Watch out for that tree!
Or.. just ride right through it…
Looks comfy, Mango.
I’m obsessed with your leafy skin. I made his PJ’s lime green briefs just so I could see more of him. I felt pervy though, so I didn’t snap a picture…
I’m going to miss being able to do this…
Is it REALLY the end of the Zaliens?!? WOW!
Random note: Melody rolled the Zoologist LTW while petting the neighbors cat. Meg rolled Culinary Librarian while… something. Both were locked in.
The snow is gone!
It just isn’t a Zale update without one.
The last baby will not be a baby for long!
My my! His skill seems to be improving!
What a little peanut.
Oh look, it’s snowing again.
Because it’s my party and I said so.
I invited Livid and her daughter Abbey (who is now a child) over. I really wanted to see Abbey and give her a makeover if needed… but Abbey couldn’t come.
Bummer. Hurry up and have that baby, Liv!
Livid listened to my request!
They named her Lacy, like our horse. Except our horse is “Lacey”.
I’m worried about all the girl births, I’m afraid there might be something wrong with my NRaas Mod. I have gender set to random, which I’m pretty sure is correct? I do think I saw a toddler boy though, so maybe we’re fine, it’s just a lot of ladies right now.
It’s quite stormy out, and Leah got startled, so Lavender rushes out to calm her down.
Much better. Leah looked so panicky, it was sad.
After the weather cleared, they head out for an evening ride.
I’ve had fun with the horses, but I’m a little tired of them. I’m glad Leah didn’t have a foal.
While out for their ride, Leah went and birthdayed into an elder.
Then – uh – Mango got arrested… and they took him away.
So! We just lost our heir! Can’t have that now can we. Let’s check that previous save file. It’s only four minutes old, go me!
Here he is, safe and sound a friends house.
Watching their crappy TV from their crappy couch. I’m going to keep an eye on him and make sure he makes it home before curfew.
Leah had her elder birthday again, this time at home.
That looks really awkward and uncomfortable!
Mango is talking to this interesting red girl named Mindy.
She’s an M! She might have to be spouse! I mean, she’s red! I didn’t make her, I never use berry sims… but this town has one red family in it somewhere. I see their SP pop-ups from time to time. I think that’ll be fun. Mindy and Mango, the red girl and the plant. We’ll have to see what happens. I use an action and send Mango home, just so we don’t lose him permanently to the police again.
I follow him the whole time, making sure he doesn’t get lost in the fog.
Safe and sound.
We almost lost you buddy, do be careful?
Darn you Kyle!
Quit aging yourself down a day. I’m still going to age you up when Lavender does, so it’s no use.
Speaking of aging up! We have a few birthdays today!
Meg gets to stay home from school, since she’s one! Kyle and little Minnie too!
Ha, you’re both dorks.
I wish Kyle had passed down something other than hair color.
Nice face, Kyle. Maybe I’m glad you passed down a little less.
Minnie gets a go too!
A nice small family affair.
Nearly half the crew is at school.
Kyle gets old.
I told him all that time in the sauna was for naught.
We also can’t forget our TH!
It’s Lavender’s birthday too!
Don’t worry Lavender, I’ll get you fixed right up. *shudder*
Meg, who went first – adds nurturing to loner, shy, easily impressed, and ambitious.
I love those purple eyes! Thanks Kyle! I think she’s VERY pretty.
Minnie rolls couch potato to join loner and brave.
I thought she’d have an easy hairstyle (she is lazy, ya know) and want something to hide her face (loner) She has pretty eyes too, not sure where the color came from exactly.
Old man Kyle.
He looks rather severe.
A rare occurrence of still being the TH while an elder! And I hate to say it, but she aged terribly. I still love her, though.
And, we’ll end this post on a sad note.
Kenji has died, and Livid is now a widow and mother of two. We’ll keep an eye on her, I promise.
That’s all for now! Until next time, Happy Simming!
