*tap tap tap* Uh hi… is this thing on? This is a REAL BONA FIDE Zale Update! Can you believe your eyes!
Me either – so let’s check up on the household so we know who everyone is, shall we?
*Warning: Mild drug references in this post*
First, we have Mindy!
About to enjoy some cake.
Mango tossing darts, rocking his new tattoo.
I caught Rajan just about to walk into his work.
He actually got promoted this play session. Great for an Idiot!
Natalie was doing some much needed laundry.
I’ve said it before, but I dislike that the maid will pick up floor laundry and wash it, but won’t get the laundry out of the baskets.
Ophelia is climbing on the dishwasher…
It’s like, are we mad? She’s gonna break it, but yay responsibility?
The Green Olive is doing nothing, with nothing in her queue.
Cute jammies, though.
Oscar is looking a tad bit creepy waiting to be picked up.
And that’s the household! Mindy is 84, Mango is 78 – lots of life left for the oldies.
Hey look! It’s Imogene! The tragic Zale drowning death.
Always nice to see her, she was one of my favorite spares.
If I lived in this house, I would never leave the patio.
Ever. Except for snow. Which I turned off in this world.
Mindy wanted a cane, so I got her one.
She hobbles all slow now…
But can be quite agile when she wants to be!
She’s always been entertaining!
I noticed the girls had to take the water taxi home from school, so I bought them jetskis.
Imagine if that was real life. HA HA HA!
I cheated and made them go out and do a little boating.
SO cute and SO unsafe. Just love it.
I hope it’s a boy!
Natalie immediately wants a massage.
A little married couple bonding.
They can be super cute sometimes!
Man, I still LOVE this house, but it’s getting pretty laggy.
I’m afraid we’re going to have to move before TOO long.
Natalie wants ANOTHER massage…
Off we go!
I’m so glad it’s a boys turn, Oscar is the CUTEST!
OMG! What’s happening here!?
Is he pouting because he doesn’t want to get off?!? I DIED!
Yes girls, thank you for cleaning up.
But Ophelia here is about to pass out!
Ophelia: Hi Grandpa, I know you’re not busy, may I have a story please so I may sleep?
Olive: ME TOO!
Grandpa Mango: Sure, let me put this completely non-sleepy baby in the crib and…
… What were we doing?
Ophelia: Grandpa? My story?
Olive: ME TOO!
This is a nightmare.
Everyone: We’re so very tired.
Baby Oscar: NOT ME! WEEEEEEE!
Great job Mango, but that’s YOUR bed.
See? You can sleep without a story. Learn from this.
You have to go to school in like, five minutes… but LEARN.
Olive: I’m so tired. I wish there was a bed somewhere I could sleep in.
It’s a miracle.
But the school day has nearly begun.
Sure, now HE’S tired.
But it’s okay, Natalie is here. ❤
I think Natalie is the cutest momma.
I can’t wait for the new nooboo! I hope it’s a boy!
Let’s try sleeping tonight.
Alright! It’s GO TIME!
BOY BOY BOY!
I send Nat off to the hospital and…
…it was only a matter of time. Don’t look so shocked there Olive, you’re not doing much better!
Meanwhile, across town, Natalie in the throes of labor, is waddling towards the hospital.
Nat: Did I remember to update my graphics card?
In heels. While a human is trying to exit your body.
Hey look! It’s Noah!
YAY! A boy!
I name him Owen (clearly) and he is a friendly slob. (Rolled)
Dark skinned like mom and dad.
I guess little Olive is the only one to acquire the throwback berry genes.
Natalie: Hmm, he looks green in this light, but I thought…
So did I Nat, so did I.
Some ghosties come out.
LtoR: Bettina, Lavender, Krypton & Shelley. (Not pictured, Leif)
The family is pretty well rested, so I decide this Saturday is Festival Funday!
The babies stay home, and the kids catch up.
I like how nearly all of them are in their pajamas.
Keep it classy, Zales.
Mango was too cool to throw water balloons with his family, so he wandered off to gorge himself on hotdogs.
Have fun. You look ridiculous, by the way.
Rajan eating a snow cone and watching his family play is adorable.
Seriously. I died a little.
He then wandered off to roller skate. Be careful!
Rajan: Is that weed?
I missed the excitement, but it looks like Mango won!
(He did, I found the rotting hot dogs in his inventory later.)
Um, okay guys.
Rajan: I think that’s weed.
Random Skaters: Do I smell weed?
Police Officer: Alright, where’s the weed?
Everyone Else: WEEEEEEEED.
Seriously, I have no idea why everyone on the skating rink is thinking about some plant. I even tried to find it… no such luck.
It’s another Noah sighting. Hi love!
And OLIVE! Where are your shoes? (She really is adorable.)
Sure Ophelia, you do your homework.
In your pajamas. Nerd. And look at cute little Mindy and her rainbow snow cone!
Okay old lady, you’re a little less cute.
FAIL x 2! Too bad I seem to have stopped keeping score.
All on her own, however, she headed off to those fancy all-in-one bathroom thingies and tidied herself right up.
I HOPED she’d put on some proper clothing after this shower… no such luck. Love the broken one spewing water everywhere and the lurking teenager.
Aw! All of the Zales have taken over the weed rink!
Zales: What’s that smell?
I guess something as fun and special as a day spent at a seasonal festival is just too BORING for the girls.
Fine. Do your homework then.
Oh yay! Nova is pregnant!
Excellent! I loved Nova. She was my choice for heir, but you voters picked Natalie. It’s cool though, it’s cool.
Hey look! Noah is getting married! A good day for the N kids! (Except Nate)
So Karlie is older. She’s a divorcee with three children. The oldest is a teenager. Noah is still a YA. I doubt we’ll bet another Zale Cousin out of this union, but it’s still fun and interesting!
Back at the house after a long and fun day, Rajan shows off his excellent parenting skills.
Hang in there Oscar, Mom will be up soon.
Well, Natalie invited a bunch of people over to a party, but none of them showed up.
So the family opted for a quiet couple of cakes on the patio.
At least the maid was there.
The rest of the household showed up too.
Oscar adds excitable to brave and insane.
His favorite color is black, and I think he’s VERY cool. ❤
Owen has his grandpa’s PlantSim golden eyes, and his grandma (and mother’s) red hair.
His favorite color is (fortunately) orange – I thought he’d be hard to dress with all the colors, but he turned out pretty stinkin’ cute!
And here’s as good a stopping point as any! Next post I will be focusing on Natalie’s LTW and career – the Seaside Savior one, since her breeding days are over. Should be fun! Hopefully there won’t be the lifetime wait between this update and the next.
I got a kitten ❤
Her name is Trin. I’m head over heels. ❤
