Well Hi! I wanted to have this update out sooner, but my weekend was a bit busy! I also wanted to play with The Lightnings, but knew that The Zales were due for an update first. At least if I am to take turns, which I kinda want to do, but don’t hold me to that. Besides, we’ll have a new TH before long, and that’s always exciting. So let’s get started!
Here’s Kyle playing with the dollhouse.
Lavender is heading upstairs.
I think she was heading for the rocking chair, since I hadn’t given her anything to do.
Meg is sitting at the table…
What the heck, yo? I hadn’t even unpaused the game… Also, it crashed/closed immediately. Like I was moving the camera around to each Sim, and then *pOOf* it was closed. You couldn’t close it that fast if you tried. Super weird. Let’s try again…
Dude – loading screens in this game… SO LONG.
And here we go. Mango is doing his homework.
Mary is fast asleep.
Melody is heading off to do something horsy.
And little Minnie is playing with her Zebra.
I like that thing.
Here’s Lacey by the horse ball.
And Leah napping in her stall.
I loved having the horses, but I’m ready for them to go. Although their deaths will be totally sad.
Okay, here we go – unpause.
Minnie is brave and checks for monsters in her new big girl room.
THAT IS NOT GOOD!
FLEE! *She does*
Lavender has some rockin’ shower hair.
That is ridiculous.
Everyone else then heads to bed, and there’s nothing I need Lavender to do… She’s not going to top her career and reach her LTW, so we’re not even going to worry about that…
So she gets her boogie on.
Excellent, if I do say so myself!
Aw, I didn’t initiate this.
Nothing like waking up just to get started on your homework!
Thanks Mary! I love those tablet things.
OH YEAH – Meg can move out – it’s her graduation!
Although she doesn’t seem to be showing any interest in attending.
*sigh* I wonder what the problem is? I google some stuff, and a lot of people suggest you disconnect your internet. So I did.
Okay – lets try again.
The snow has melted, so Lavender heads out to try to deposit Samali, Krypton and Bailey’s remains. Last time she tried this they vanished, so hopefully we’ll have better luck.
Oh, and Lacey needed some exercise, so we went for a ride.
In a spooky graveyard, Krypton, Samali and Bailey are laid to rest. ❤
Lavender rolled a wish to read Minnie to sleep – No problem!
She’s a pretty old mother…
That’s Mary’s room. *resets*
Couldn’t be a Zale update without one.
I’m definitely going to miss a couple things about the aliens. Not sleeping, and…
…recombobulating broken devices.
Okay, finally caught back up from the last crash, and it’s Meg’s graduation again.
But everyone actually goes this time.
Aw dang. That’s sad.
Livid was there mourning her deceased Kenji.
Just as the rain starts falling, I send the family to meet up at the diner for a bite.
Everyone is pretty hungry, so a good way to get a nice meal to all of them.
And they “how to door” as well as their ancestors.
Good to know some things continue to ring true. Zales cannot door.
I told Lavender to restore her brainpower…
…As always, she picks the outdoor lounge. In the rain.
Sorry Meg, you’ve overstayed your welcome.
It’s time for you to go.
I moved her in with Livid, Abbey, Lacy and the pets.
And sent Lavender to go visit.
It said no one was home, so Lavender chatted up the horse for a bit, then I heard the sound of closing doors, and I found THIS:
Poor baby Lacy on the lawn in the rain. That’s not good.
We rescue Lacy, but still no sign of the mysterious Abbey.
First ever Zale cousin is hard to find!
I have Lav ask Meg if she can sleep over, just so she doesn’t get kicked out of the house.
Meg’s thoughts are weird. Are all spares juiced all the time?
I HEAR SOBBING! Liv’s home!
Where the heck is Abbey!?! It’s after 1:00am!
We cure her of her heartbreak, and she’s quite grateful.
It does look like Livid’s life is going a fair bit better than it was!
ZOMG! Here she is!
She must’ve have picked up on the future tech from her Mom.
She’s super cute, and I’m kinda obsessed.
She’s an excitable hot-headed genius.
Then I decide to age up Lacy Zale, just so we can get to know her.
I also used my powers for good and made sure everyone had a bed, even one for Lacy when she outgrows the crib.
Wee hours toddler party!
And the umpteenth Zale takes on Sam’s nose.
But yay! Zale Cousins!
I also gave Abbey a quick make over.
I hate those puffy overalls she was wearing.
With that, my work over at Livid and Meg’s house is complete, and Lav returns home.
And it’s SUPER stormy outside!
It’s LOVE DAY!
*SMOOCH* (end me acknowledging Love Day)
I hate how sad the horses are when spooked by the thunder.
I send Lav out to calm them both down. All better.
Out for a ride on Lacey…
She’s getting super old. At least the weather has cleared. I love how the ground is still wet and splashing around Lacey’s hooves.
I caught these two playing tag.
How ridiculous. And old man and a plant in his shorts.
Melody reading to Minnie.
Well, about to anyway – the book appeared shortly thereafter. And Minnie’s even in her own bed! Well done, you two.
Mango finds the barre.
He’s really worked hard on his athletic, and is level four in dancing. Hopefully this helps out his acrobat career.
I know Lavender is a grumpy Sim, but she’s always pissing and moaning when Minnie is around.
Her obvious last ditch effort at a boy.
Then I probed Mary just for fun.
Since I won’t have an alien to control much longer.
Future TH – the Dance Man!
he’s got some epic moves.
Everyone is at work or school, so I check on Kyle.
He did this all day. Wee.
This dude is great! By the time we get started on his LTW, we’ll have tons of athletic skill.
I’m very pleased.
Minnie is about to pass out, and Melody is dripping on the bed.
Since this is NOT Minnie’s bed however, this action will serve no purpose.
Ha, she gets up and heads out to the tree house to sleep.
Fine with me.
This won’t go well for Kyle.
Not that I really care…
I know you can’t tell from this still image, but this zombie lurched SO FAST… freakishly fast. Like her promotion depended on how fast she could lurch. She scared me a little.
Hey, remember how I told you guys there was a chipmunk by the miner?
See? Still there. He’s always there.
Dude! I just got the pop up that Mango’s athletic skill is number 9!
He’s a teen! Level 9!
This other zombie gets her hands on Kyle.
And he’s terrified!
Then screamed like a little girl.
And I laughed. While hiding inside because the zombies scare me.
Then she got a text.
Even zombies need social lives.
Zombie then watches Juniper restore her brain power.
Because why not. BTW, three generations of aliens, and I never grew accustomed to the restoring of brain power.
Maybe you should give it a rest buddy?
You’re looking a little done.
Enjoy it Mango – you’re about to be under my rule.
Sitting in rocking chairs is not something I frequently allow.
Someone remind me to upgrade that thing to unbreakable.
We invited Mary’s boyfriend Sheldon, Mango’s *hopefully* betrothed Mindy, Meg, Lilac and her husband Ronnie, Livid & Abbey.
Lavender there is on the phone setting up the party.
*Cakes magically appear on different surface*
Yes Mango… cake soon.
But not quite yet.
Mindy and Ray (Ray who is Meg’s RI, but wasn’t invited because no one in the house knows him) are the first to arrive.
I’m happy Ray came, even if he’s technically a crasher – he brought food!
Then Meg is here!
Sheldon and Lilac’s husband Ronnie (outside with the dog) are next!
The dog comes in too.
A favorite of mine for obvious reasons.
Two seconds later, what the heck?
Sheldon slaps Mindy! There seems to be some issues there. Not cool.
This old guy is Max Zale.
Livid’s pup from a SP pop-up almost immediately after she moved out. Poor old guy.
Mary is first!
Some of you may have noticed that third cake!
We’re aging up Mindy too!
It’s a pretty rockin’ party.
Mary rolls brave. This joins star quality, friendly, green thumb & absent minded.
I choose to have her keep her stars. Her LTW is the popularity one. Isn’t she cute though!
You two are next!
I’m pretty excited! Mango looks excited too.
Mango had family-oriented locked in, adding to absent minded, athletic, green thumb & social butterfly.
I’m stoked! As soon as I finish these makeovers, it’s Mango time!
You’re next, Mindy!
Young adult made over Mindy! I didn’t think she looked good with blonde hair, so I coordinated it with her skin tone.
And that’s that! Come back next time, when Mango takes over and tries to make Mindy his wife! We’ll have to tackle the creation of children, but there’s a few things worth trying! So until then, Happy Simming!
