Welcome! The Zales and I are happy you stopped by! I’ve been loving the new house, and I can’t wait for you guys to see what’s new with our favorite family.
Mindy is looking very pleased with herself, and her cake.
Mango is parenting little Noah.
Nova and Natalie are at school on this rainy day.
Here we have Nate who just enjoyed his birthday.
Silly little guy.
Skilling Noah begins!
Good heavens this area is bare… much of the house is still like that.
How cute are these two…
Playing tag around the house.
It’s almost time!
Mango will be a PlantSim again before we know it!
Oh town, how I love thee.
So pretty and different from the other worlds.
Mango continues to work hard on his LTW.
No one bothered to watch him.
But he got hungry and took a break.
I had him get a pulled pork sandwich.
Sounded good to me!
While out on the main island, Mango auditions for a couple more gigs.
He got them both.
Back at home, it was the typical demand for bedtime stories.
I noticed Mindy was stinky.
She had peed herself. FAIL! I’d mark it -5, but clearly I don’t keep score any more. Oh well, I tried… for a bit.
I have Mango volunteer a story for Natalie, otherwise they’d NEVER get to sleep!
It’s a cute action, too bad it’s so awfully implemented.
The ghosts are out. And obviously grossed out by how ghostly everyone is.
LtoR: Gustave, Juniper, Daisy passed out, Meredith, Krypton & Changpu.
Hi honey! Reminder, Imogene drowned in the pool during a party when the Zales lived in Lucky Palms.
I might need more rocking chairs.
Some of the ghosties were route failing due to their desired chair being occupied.
Poor Daisy, she just fainted over and over and over again.
It’s more than she can handle. Even more ghosts joined the party, but no sign of Abraham. 😦
Nova is in for a rough day.
She’s exhausted and hungry, as well as needing to wee.
I ALMOST flippin’ made another PlantSim baby by “picking” the fruit instead of “tending” the garden. That would’ve been BAD.
Well – that was anti-climactic.
It says he has to get to the science lab, but that’s to cure him, right? I’ll just let him be.
Mindy… you’re gross.
Do you not see the flies?
If I lived here, I’d never go inside.
He’s a PlantSim!
It happened when I wasn’t looking, so I’m not sure what actually happened. I’m bummed I missed it! Makeover is required.
His PlantSimism manifested differently this time, but I embrace it.
I love the golden yellow in his hair.
Please Mindy, for the love of llamas, read the poor thing to sleep.
Don’t let the daylight fool you. It just means she’s probably been awake for 24 hours.
Natalie went to sleep without a story, but she’s in her sister’s bed.
The glorious flower trail has returned!
It also reset his lifestage – Mindy ages up in one day, I’ll age Mango up too.
Mango completes another gig!
After his performance, he takes a karaoke break.
He got way too hilariously into it.
I mean, he’s on his knees, people.
Mango arrives home to a finally rested Natalie doing her homework.
At 2:30 in the morning. I don’t think her schedule will ever be right again.
He was still in pretty good shape needs wise, so I sent him to the park to perform for tips.
It was a lovely, quiet night, and the stars were so bright!
By the time the sun came up, however…
He wasn’t doing as well.
Back at home, Mindy is throwing darts.
She rolls wishes to do things like paint, and laundry – no one is stopping you dear! Feel free!
Mango had to clean up a bit, there’s a party tonight!
Natalie is on her way home.
Like a boss.
Nova is too!
I LOVE that kids can use these things.
Nate had to take a water taxi, I had forgotten to give him a jetski – I fixed that, however.
4 person party!
Have I mentioned I love this house?
That is a sweet place to have a party!
Nova is first, and adds artistic to friendly, snob & genius.
She’s quite lovely!
Mindy is next. I decide to give her a more tropical makeover – no more sweater dress and boots – I also tone down her makeup, and allow her to wear a color other than red.
(She has white shorts on, LOL)
Natalie adds charismatic to neurotic, couch potato & night owl.
I’m officially obsessed with Natalie now, who’s opted for short hair, and to embrace her curls.
Mango went last, and I have no idea what happened to him.
I had just fixed his look… OH – this is his new acrobat outfit.
Well, it took me ages to fix his career look, and now he’s late for his gig.
But look! His flower trail follows him in the water!
For a really long distance!
Mango managed to perform for about 15 minutes – needless to say, it was not a good show.
❤ ❤ ❤
The sisters appear to be getting along very well!
It makes me happy! In fact, they each have a wish to be BFF’s with each other. I lock them in even though it’s not going to happen.
She’s my favorite
But they’re both lovely.
So whoever you pick, will be okay with me.
It’s a lovely Saturday, so Mango takes everyone off to the festival!
Why they didn’t take their boat, I don’t know.
Nor do I understand why everyone showed up in their pajamas!
I’m pretty sure they’re supposed to change when they leave their home lot?
Mango challenges the three women in his life to a hot dog eating contest.
My money is on Natalie, but only because she’s hungry.
Seriously, this is so funny!
Especially because they’re in their pajamas!
He gets a supply of hotdogs that I forget about until I get the pop up about the disgusting items in his inventory.
Meanwhile, Nate buys some food from the vendor.
And Noah is left sitting in the grass.
BUT – being the experienced Simmer that I am, I plopped a toy in his inventory.
See? I learn things. Sometimes. He’s ALSO in his pajamas, btw.
This woman skates with an invisible partner.
I reset the guy, but I think he’s doomed.
A little husband and wife bonding.
At least it got Mindy out of her jammies and into her work-out clothes.
The twins helped themselves to sno-cones while Nate heads off to skate.
Super cute, even if their borderline indecent. And heck, I can just feel the hot brick on their bare feeties.
Mango, with his maxed athletic skill, easily stops all of his wife’s goal attempts.
It was pretty fun to watch.
But, all good things must come to an end. Noah is sleepy.
And it’s time to get him home.
I love this guy…
…As far as I know, he’s never asked for a bedtime story. Thanks Nate!
I had Mango out on the town, auditioning for more gigs, and he rolled some snorkel wishes.
So we snorkel in the lagoon.
But it just spurred more wishes, so Mango spent the entire day in the water.
Annoyingly enough, it didn’t fill his “water” need… but it didn’t decay either. Maybe because it’s salt water? That makes a little sense I guess.
It was getting dark, but I had to capture a couple scuba shots.
I think the next couple TH’s will have to do something IP related. It’s way too fun. Heck, maybe we’ll do something with mermaids?
Sheesh woman! No one is stopping you…
…go use one of the MANY bathrooms.
I adore Natalie.
Just look at that face!
Nate was the first to wake up Monday morning. He made his bed…
…then went downstairs to play. I thought it was cute.
Mango has unlocked the ball and the ring of fire. Fun!
I was watching Mango perform, and I got this pop-up:
That is a LOT of vehicles!!!! Nearly 5,000?!? Is that even possible!?! And stupid Phil Han is always stuck aging.
I suspect a fail is in the future…
…he’s EXHAUSTED, just went to sleep, and school is in 45 minutes. (NOTE: I had him sleep in class, cheating? Maybe…I just used the drop down menu when he was in school.)
Ha, he woke up and stretched and yawned…
I don’t really see that action much.
Resting up before his gig tonight.
I know I’m all obsessed with this world, but I could almost FEEL the sunshine. LOVE it.
Mindy has always been a good mother.
Here she is taking excellent care of Noah (and I TOLD you she had white shorts).
Nova went over to the Scott residence after school.
They have this REALLY cool houseboat.
And a green child.
Mango has a gig, but the boys are having birthdays. I bought a couple cakes and sent Mango on his way (not wanting to be late, again…) but I had him start Noah’s birthday before he left.
As soon as Nate gets home, I’ll use Mango to start his birthday too.
But the Zale Island is so remote, it takes about 2 SimHours to get the kids home from school.
Even on the jetski. NOTE: The Zale children just vaporize to school in the mornings. I get the pop up that the bus will be there at 8:00am, and then ZARROOOP they teleport to school. Fine with me! My guess is because there’s no roads on Zale Island, so there’s no where for the bus to go.
Noah adds rebellious to good & friendly.
He’s super cute.
Fancy Mango worked super hard, even though he missed his sons birthdays.
This one woman nearly lost her mind, watching Mango’s show.
She cracked me UP! Just LOOK at that face!
Nate finally gets to his cake, and adds bot fan to grumpy and loves the outdoors.
Due to his new “bot fan” trait, he got some futuristic parts to his new look. I actually really like him!
All 500 laundry baskets in the house were getting full, so I had Mango devote HOURS to doing the household laundry.
Unfortunately, after he’d picked up most of the baskets, his absent minded nature made him plop it down… but FINE.
The dishwasher was also broken, for who knows how long.
The TH’s day is never done.
Which would’ve been a GREAT stopping point… but I have one more screenshot.
Mindy is VERY HAPPY her husband is a PlantSim again…
…the “flower kiss”is back, and she’s THRILLED!
So – that’s all for now! Next post will get us to an HEIR POLL between Natalie and Nova! Can’t wait to see what’s next, so come back again soon! Until next time, Happy Simming!
