Lavender’s Last 12.7

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!

Zale Check!
Screenshot
Here’s Kyle playing with the dollhouse.

Lavender is heading upstairs.
Screenshot-2
I think she was heading for the rocking chair, since I hadn’t given her anything to do.

Meg is sitting at the table…
Screenshot-3
AND CRASH!

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.
Screenshot-4

Mary is fast asleep.
Screenshot-5

Melody is heading off to do something horsy.
Screenshot-6

And little Minnie is playing with her Zebra.
Screenshot-7
I like that thing.

Here’s Lacey by the horse ball.
Screenshot-8

And Leah napping in her stall.
Screenshot-9
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.
Screenshot-10

THAT IS NOT GOOD!
Screenshot-11
FLEE!  *She does*

Lavender has some rockin’ shower hair.
Screenshot-12
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.
Screenshot-13 Screenshot-14 Screenshot-15
Excellent, if I do say so myself!

Aw, I didn’t initiate this.
Screenshot-16
Cute.

Nothing like waking up just to get started on your homework!
Screenshot-17
Thanks Mary!  I love those tablet things.

OH YEAH – Meg can move out – it’s her graduation!
Screenshot-18
Although she doesn’t seem to be showing any interest in attending.

AND CRASH.

*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.
Screenshot-19
Oh, and Lacey needed some exercise, so we went for a ride.

Success!
Screenshot-20
In a spooky graveyard, Krypton, Samali and Bailey are laid to rest. ❤

Lavender rolled a wish to read Minnie to sleep – No problem!
Screenshot-21

Aw.
Screenshot-22
She’s a pretty old mother…

Um Lacey?
Screenshot-23
That’s Mary’s room.  *resets*

Couldn’t be a Zale update without one.
Screenshot-24

I’m definitely going to miss a couple things about the aliens.  Not sleeping, and…
Screenshot-25
…recombobulating broken devices.

Okay, finally caught back up from the last crash, and it’s Meg’s graduation again.
Screenshot-26
But everyone actually goes this time.

Aw dang.  That’s sad.
Screenshot-27
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.
Screenshot-28Everyone 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.
Screenshot-29
Good to know some things continue to ring true.  Zales cannot door.

I told Lavender to restore her brainpower…
Screenshot-30
…As always, she picks the outdoor lounge.  In the rain.

Sorry Meg, you’ve overstayed your welcome.
Screenshot-31
It’s time for you to go.

I moved her in with Livid, Abbey, Lacy and the pets.
Screenshot-32
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:
Screenshot-33
Poor baby Lacy on the lawn in the rain.  That’s not good.

We rescue Lacy, but still no sign of the mysterious Abbey.
Screenshot-34
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.
Screenshot-35
Meg’s thoughts are weird.  Are all spares juiced all the time?

I HEAR SOBBING!  Liv’s home!
Screenshot-36
Where the heck is Abbey!?!  It’s after 1:00am!

We cure her of her heartbreak, and she’s quite grateful.
Screenshot-37
It does look like Livid’s life is going a fair bit better than it was!

ZOMG!  Here she is!
Screenshot-38
In style!
Screenshot-39
She must’ve have picked up on the future tech from her Mom.

She’s super cute, and I’m kinda obsessed.
Screenshot-40
She’s an excitable hot-headed genius.

Then I decide to age up Lacy Zale, just so we can get to know her.
Screenshot-41
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!
Screenshot-42

And the umpteenth Zale takes on Sam’s nose.
Screenshot-43
But yay!  Zale Cousins!

I also gave Abbey a quick make over.
Screenshot-44
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.
Screenshot-45
And it’s SUPER stormy outside!

It’s LOVE DAY!
Screenshot-46
*SMOOCH* (end me acknowledging Love Day)

I hate how sad the horses are when spooked by the thunder.
Screenshot-47
I send Lav out to calm them both down.  All better.

Out for a ride on Lacey…
Screenshot-48
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.
Screenshot-49
How ridiculous.  And old man and a plant in his shorts.

Melody reading to Minnie.
Screenshot-50
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.
Screenshot-51
Again.

Fancy!
Screenshot-52
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.
Screenshot-53
Her obvious last ditch effort at a boy.

Then I probed Mary just for fun.
Screenshot-54
Since I won’t have an alien to control much longer.

Future TH – the Dance Man!
Screenshot-55
he’s got some epic moves.

Everyone is at work or school, so I check on Kyle.
Screenshot-56
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.
Screenshot-57
I’m very pleased.

Minnie is about to pass out, and Melody is dripping on the bed.
Screenshot-58
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.
Screenshot-59
Fine with me.

This won’t go well for Kyle.
Screenshot-60
Not that I really care…

HOLY CRAP.
Screenshot-61
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?
Screenshot-62
See?  Still there.  He’s always there.

Dude!  I just got the pop up that Mango’s athletic skill is number 9!
Screenshot-63
He’s a teen!  Level 9!

This other zombie gets her hands on Kyle.
Screenshot-64

And he’s terrified!
Screenshot-65

Then screamed like a little girl.
Screenshot-66
And I laughed.  While hiding inside because the zombies scare me.

Then she got a text.
Screenshot-67
Even zombies need social lives.

Zombie then watches Juniper restore her brain power.
Screenshot-68
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?
Screenshot-69
You’re looking a little done.

Enjoy it Mango – you’re about to be under my rule.
Screenshot-70
Sitting in rocking chairs is not something I frequently allow.

Again?!?
Screenshot-71
Someone remind me to upgrade that thing to unbreakable.

Birthday time!
We invited Mary’s boyfriend Sheldon, Mango’s *hopefully* betrothed Mindy, Meg, Lilac and her husband Ronnie, Livid & Abbey.
Screenshot-72
Lavender there is on the phone setting up the party.

*Cakes magically appear on different surface*

Yes Mango… cake soon.
Screenshot-73
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.
Screenshot-74
I’m happy Ray came, even if he’s technically a crasher – he brought food!

Then Meg is here!
Screenshot-75
Hi Meg!

Sheldon and Lilac’s husband Ronnie (outside with the dog) are next!
Screenshot-76
The dog comes in too.

Abbey!
Screenshot-77
A favorite of mine for obvious reasons.

Two seconds later, what the heck?
Screenshot-78
Sheldon slaps Mindy!  There seems to be some issues there.  Not cool.

This old guy is Max Zale.
Screenshot-79
Livid’s pup from a SP pop-up almost immediately after she moved out.  Poor old guy.

Mary is first!
Screenshot-80

Then Mango!
Screenshot-81

Some of you may have noticed that third cake!
Screenshot-82
We’re aging up Mindy too!

It’s a pretty rockin’ party.
Screenshot-83
😐

Mary rolls brave.  This joins star quality, friendly, green thumb & absent minded.
Screenshot-84
I choose to have her keep her stars.  Her LTW is the popularity one.  Isn’t she cute though!

You two are next!
Screenshot-85
I’m pretty excited!  Mango looks excited too.

Mango had family-oriented locked in, adding to absent minded, athletic, green thumb & social butterfly.
Screenshot-86
I’m stoked!  As soon as I finish these makeovers, it’s Mango time!

You’re next, Mindy!
Screenshot-87

And tada!
Screenshot-89
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!

More Fun Times with the Zales! 12.6

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:
Screenshot

Melody gets the nurturing trait.
Screenshot-2
She’s pretty cute, even though I gave her a weird outfit.

Mango gets social butterfly.
Screenshot-4
I still just love him.

Minnie shows us she’s human.
Screenshot-5
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…
Screenshot-6
…Long after it’s over.

Our little barre addict is becoming quite graceful!
Screenshot-7
Not bad, for a plant!

Melody plays that weird Sims Animal game…
Screenshot-8
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.
Screenshot-9
I still love Meg.  She’s one of my favorites.

Kyle checks out his daughter’s beau.
Screenshot-10
It’s that Ray guy, I think – Great face, bad hair.

Gah!  Lavender you stop that right now!
Screenshot-11
She’s totally flirting with her brother in law, Kenji – Livid’s husband!

Meg and Mango are NOT thrilled.
Screenshot-12
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.
Screenshot-13
I love it, I just wish it didn’t have any audio.  It’s kind of creepy and crackly.

Potty time!
Screenshot-14
Little Minnie was trained her other two skills with the playpen and the walker.

A beautiful, snowy, early morning ride on Lacey.
Screenshot-15
I’m so over winter, but it’s very pretty.

After ride snuggles.
Screenshot-16
Aw…

Lav “loves the cold” Zale makes a snow angel.
Screenshot-17
Per her wishes.

Video game family bonding.
Screenshot-18
Lav, Mango and Melody get their sportsing on.

Sorry Meg…
Screenshot-19
No room for you 😦

OH!  How cute!
Screenshot-20
She just plopped down on the floor to join in!

Mango loves this thing.
Screenshot-21
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!
Screenshot-22

She’s a cutie-patootie.
Screenshot-23
Kinda fun to have a toddler around after all my TS4-ing.

YAY!  Another baby for Livid and Kenji!
Another baby!
I guess flirting with Lavender got Kenji’s motor running.

Ew.  Sorry.

Kyle here is having a very hard time.
Screenshot-24
He’s about to become delusional.

I have him take deep breaths.
Screenshot-25
I couldn’t handle him moaning about.  Ugh.

Sheldon invited Meg on a date!  I said YES, let’s see how it goes!
Screenshot-26
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!
Screenshot-27
The junkyard in a snowstorm!

Apparently the “in thing” is to come here and build snowmen.
Screenshot-28
See that hint of blue behind the shrubbery on the left?  Some dude, NOT Sheldon, making a snowman.

Meg also makes one…
Screenshot-29
…next to a shredded couch.

Looks like Sheldon stood her up, maybe he realized he called the wrong sister.
Screenshot-30
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.
Screenshot-31
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.

Like this.
Screenshot-32
I’m shocked. 😐

Lavender, in her career clothes, gives Minnie a snuggle.
Screenshot-33
Good ol’ Mango and that barre!

Married couple foosball.
Screenshot-34
Gotta keep the love alive.

Here’s Melody’s adorable outerwear.
Screenshot-35
And yes, it’s STILL WINTER.

Uh oh, looks like Kenji’s going to die before his second baby is born.
Adios Kenji
That’s too bad.

Oh!  Never mind!
thoughtful reaper
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…
Screenshot-36
So Kyle and Lavender have some igloo ‘hoo.

AH!  Watch out for that tree!
Screenshot-37
Or.. just ride right through it…
Screenshot-38
Because Sims.

Looks comfy, Mango.
Screenshot-39
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…
Screenshot-40
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!
Screenshot-41
BBQ TIME!

It just isn’t a Zale update without one.
Screenshot-42
Broken dishwasher…

The last baby will not be a baby for long!
Screenshot-43
Aw.

My my!  His skill seems to be improving!
Screenshot-44
So fancy!

Too adorable.
Screenshot-45
What a little peanut.

Oh look, it’s snowing again.
Screenshot-46
😐

Horsey pic!
Screenshot-47
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.
Screenshot-48
Bummer.  Hurry up and have that baby, Liv!

Aw.
Screenshot-49
❤  Sisters.

Livid listened to my request!
Lacy is born
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.
Screenshot-50
Much better.  Leah looked so panicky, it was sad.

After the weather cleared, they head out for an evening ride.
Screenshot-51
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.
Screenshot-52
How nice.

Then – uh – Mango got arrested… and they took him away.
Mango.
Forever.

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.
Screenshot-53
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.
Screenshot-54
That looks really awkward and uncomfortable!

Mango is talking to this interesting red girl named Mindy.
Screenshot-55
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.
Screenshot-56

Safe and sound.
Screenshot-57
We almost lost you buddy, do be careful?

Darn you Kyle!
Screenshot-58
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!
Screenshot-59
Meg gets to stay home from school, since she’s one!  Kyle and little Minnie too!

Ha, you’re both dorks.
Screenshot-60
I wish Kyle had passed down something other than hair color.

Still dorks.
Screenshot-61
Nice face, Kyle.  Maybe I’m glad you passed down a little less.

Minnie gets a go too!
Screenshot-62

A nice small family affair.
Screenshot-63
Nearly half the crew is at school.

Kyle gets old.
Screenshot-64
I told him all that time in the sauna was for naught.

We also can’t forget our TH!
Screenshot-65
It’s Lavender’s birthday too!

GAH!
Screenshot-66
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.
Screenshot-67
I love those purple eyes!  Thanks Kyle!  I think she’s VERY pretty.

Minnie rolls couch potato to join loner and brave.
Screenshot-68
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.
Screenshot-69He looks rather severe.

And Lavender.
Screenshot-70
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.
final farewell
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!

Livid’s Tragic Life 12.5

Wow!  A Zale update!  I know I’ve been a terrible Zale ISBI – Alphabetcy blogger as of late.  I apologize.  As a lot of you know, I’ve been pretty into TS4, which has been so fun!  So I transferred my Lightning Quick Alphabetcy over to TS4, so I could play both TS3 and TS4 for blogging purposes!

Last time we lost both Krypton and Samali within a few short SimMinutes, had a fail or two, birthdays, and are expecting another nooboo!

So let Zale Check!  Lavender is popping pregnancy stage one and rubbing her new nooboo bump!
Screenshot

Kyle is playing with a robot toy.
Screenshot-2
Again, reminding me of Ramon, but not as endearing as Ramon, for some reason.

Meg is asleep in this glitched out bunk-bed.
Screenshot-3
You can see it’s glitched, but what’s really weird about it, is if I go to move it, it replicates itself.  There will be three or four beds there… they sell for zero bucks, so it’s not a money making bed, but still weird.

Our little star Mary is also asleep.
Screenshot-4
I love the way Sim kids sleep with their arm sticking out like that.

Plant-man mango is up in the treehouse…
Screenshot-5
…also asleep.  Hmm, I might not have made him a bedroom.  I’ll look into that.

Melody is ruling over her little imaginary kingdom.
Screenshot-6

Lacey is asleep in her stall.
Screenshot-7

And lastly, Leah is standing around in the rain by the garage.
Screenshot-8
There, you’re all reacquainted with the members of the Zale house.

Meg and Mango are my favorites.
Screenshot-9

Well, and Mary too.
Screenshot-10

I’m sure Melody will grow on me.
Screenshot-11
We’ll see.

Kyle is helping take care of the horses, thanks man!
Screenshot-12
I love that giant pile of hay.

Mango has been spending nearly all his free time at the barre.
Screenshot-13
He’s getting quite good and can show off many ballet moves to people.  I can’t control him, so I’m not sure what that looks like.  I might have to have him give it a go.

All that hay was making Lavender feel frisky.
Screenshot-14
They’re still a pretty cute couple.  I just wish Kyle genetics had played a bit more of a role in the children.

The new hay stack I just plopped down (for Lavender’s woohoo wishes) apparently makes the girls miss their grandpa.
Screenshot-15
I’m not sure why hay would remind them of Krypton… He didn’t spend very much time outside.

Unfortunately, Kyle and lavender about to roll in the hay – with an audience.
Screenshot-16
A sobbing, wailing audience.  That’s hot.

Melody:  Mom?  what are you doing?
Screenshot-17

Mary: GRANDPA!!!!!!!!!!!! *WAILS*
Screenshot-18
Notice the falling hearts… this was a very weird series of events.

Good heavens sweet child.  Night has fallen and you’re still out here wailing?
Screenshot-19
I watched her cry and cry and cry for hours on end.

I sent Lavender out to rescue her.
Screenshot-20

Cheer up arms ACTIVATE!
Screenshot-21
That looks uncomfortable.

“Do you want to build a snowman?”
Screenshot-22

It was pretty cute, they talked about death while making it, and Mary finally stopped crying her eyes out.
Screenshot-23
Thank goodness.

Mary had also rolled the “visit the graveyard” wish, so I had Lavender take her along.
Screenshot-24
Take her along you say?

Yes, we have business here.
Screenshot-25
We lay to rest Krypton, Samali and Bailey the horse.  Except when I put Krypton and Samali’s down, they vanished.  They still occupied space, but were invisible.  Darn.

Just two more hours of this.
Screenshot-26

28 more minutes.
Screenshot-27
And we’re done.  It was a very painful mourning period.  Mostly for me.  Listening to the children cry is the absolute WORST.

Fine night for a barbecue.
Screenshot-28
The little robot gnome assists.

Melody here is about to pass out, wet herself, and perhaps die of starvation.
Screenshot-29
Maybe she won’t grow on me.

Okay – she won’t wet herself.
Screenshot-30
Good Simmie.

Or starve to death.
Screenshot-31
I am pleased.

And then – my game broke.  And turned into this:
Crashed
I reloaded the save file and it was like this too… scary stuff.  Most of you know I keep four active save files for the Zales.  Every time I think “I should save” I do a “Save As” and I name it “Zales in AP 1” or two, three or four, and then I just save over the next number in the sequence.  So I went back a previous save, and this is where I was.
Screenshot-32
Lav and Mary at their snowman.  Not too bad.  But I didn’t want to play anymore, after the crash.  And I didn’t play for at least two weeks!

***TWO WEEK INTERLUDE***

SO!  Here I am again!  Let’s do another Zale Check, since It’s been ages… (and I couldn’t remember everyone’s name even…)

Here’s one sad Lavender out in the snow.
Screenshot-33

Kyle is asleep in his bed.
Screenshot-34
One thing I can say about Kyle, he gets lots of sleep.

Meg is taking a bath.
Screenshot-35
I love that hair I found in the Store.

Mary is out with her mom in the snow.
Screenshot-36
Such a sweetie.

Mango is also in the tub.

He’s precious.

Melody is presiding over the royal court.

Now lets get to it!

Oh wait, horses.  Here’s Lacey.
Screenshot-39
Thinking of Leah.

And here’s Leah, looking majestic…
Screenshot-40…Thinking of Lacey.  Aw…

I sent Lavender off to the spa for that $7500 soothing salvation package, and decide to follow Mango around, since I’m PRETTY SURE he’ll be heir.  Even if Lavender’s current pregnancy produces a male (or two!) I’m nearly certain the PlantSim would win the heir poll.
Screenshot-41
I enjoy him super bunches.

And right about this moment, he rolled this!
Mangos wish
I promised to lock in any rolled LTW’s and this is no exception.  Besides, I’ve barely messed with these professions, and if he wins, it’d be super fun!

He proceeds to play in the leaves/snow outside the barn.
Screenshot-42
Cute!

No seriously.
Screenshot-43
Amazingly adorable.

I so rarely capture it, but I love it when Sims walk into a room, see someone they like, and wave at them.
Screenshot-44
Well hello to you too, Meg!  ❤

Then Mango went to take ANOTHER bath.
Screenshot-45
And I realized that his water need had already gotten REALLY low.  That’ll be interesting to get to know more about.  He’d had a bath a rather short time ago.

And not trying to snap photos of little SimBoys taking baths, but check out how amazing his skin is!
Screenshot-46
I think it’s utterly spectacular!  I had know idea PlantSims were so cool.

Aw, Meg and Melody.
Screenshot-47
Unfortunately, Meg didn’t fall asleep after that, but it was still cute.  Although turning pages in those gloves seems like it would be impossible.

Father and daughter bonding.
Screenshot-48
And I love Mary’s outfit.

That’s right!  I’d nearly forgotten there were more options for heir (maybe) in the oven!
Screenshot-49
I’m looking forward to meeting the new nooboo!

Writing a positive story In Lilac Zale-Hobble.
Screenshot-50
Lavender will definitely not complete her LTW.  She’s only level 5 of the journalism career, and all the pregnancies have really held her back.  She’d get promoted if she’d just be able to go to work.

Broken dishwasher (because it isn’t a Zale update without one!)
Screenshot-51
Thanks Melody.

Someone is having a birthday today!  She’s still asleep asleep though, so I’ll let her get her rest first.
Screenshot-52
Meg is having a veggie burger for breakfast.  Yuck.

Mango!  You’ll catch your death out there in your shorts!
Screenshot-53
Get your planty self inside!

Lavender cares for the horses on this beautiful winter day.

Bright winter days in Appaloosa Plains has some of the best lighting.

Kyle sets fire to a rotten pile of leaves!
Screenshot-55

I’m scared.
Screenshot-56
Everything was fine, however.

Kyle:  I want cake.
Screenshot-57
Later dude.  It’s not for you.

A little winter gardening.  We had money to collect.
Screenshot-58
Hey?  Is that middle tree dead?  It looks dead.  But I’ve mistakenly thrown away dormant plants before.  I’ll just leave it until spring I guess.

Mary!  Don’t play in that!  It’s rotten!
Screenshot-59
And Meg?  Why are you raking snow?  That can’t be a good use of your time.

Speaking of Mary!  It’s her birthday!
Screenshot-60

Mary adds green thumb to absent minded, star quality and friendly.  It was locked in due to indifferent study habits… but I say it was locked in due to snow.  She rarely went to school.
Screenshot-61
I keep her star make-up, and I just love her violet eyes!  I tried to incorporate a flower of some sort into every outfit to represent her green thumb.  Samali’s genes are very strong, and continue to be dominating the grandchildren.  Although I’m glad she came along to break the alien curse.  Well, and I’m glad to have had her in general, it was way fun.

She seems to like her new look…
Screenshot-62
…and is ready to take on the world!  RAWR!

Geez Meg, chill out.
Screenshot-63
Have some cake.

Everyone but Kyle enjoys the birthday celebrations.
Screenshot-64
Hmm, where IS Kyle?

Oh!  Here he is.
Screenshot-65
Kyle: Caaaaaaaakkkee.
Yes, Kyle – have some cake.

It took Lavender four SimHours to pick up all the clothes from all the laundry baskets.
Screenshot-66
Ugh.  I REALLY wish maids did laundry.  I mean, they’ll pick up laundry, and start the machine, but they don’t get the laundry out of the baskets.

OMG!  Mary got a prom date!
Mary gets a date
I didn’t know a prom was looming, and I have no idea who Sheldon is, but heck yes!

Mango gets interesting moodlets.
Glistening
Have you ever seen that before?  He also had a swan one about “grace” that I’d never seen either.  Are PlantSims known for their grace?  Or is it just because he’s addicted to the ballet barre?  It’s adorable though.

On a cold, winding, desolate road, Lavender jumps out from the safety and comfort of her motive mobile, crams it in her pocket and…
Screenshot-67
…goes into labor!

HA!  It’s a freakin’ girl.
Screenshot-68
Lavender looks thrilled.  Green skinned to boot!  Might even be an alien?  Oh, I named her Minnie.  Loner was locked in (even though Lavender was ecstatic through the entire pregnancy) and she rolls brave.

About the same time, Lilac and this guy Ronnie have gotten married!
Lilac & Ronnie
I’m happy for her, especially after her first marriage that left her a widow after a few short days.

Lavender/Minnie whirlwind.
Screenshot-69

But it is kind of nice to have a new nooboo in the house again.
Screenshot-70
Aw, parents.

So – now to the part of this post that explains the title.  I’m not sure if any of you recall, but Livid and Kenji had a baby together.  Livid named her Abby.  I could not, for the life of me, locate Livid and Kenji’s house.  Come to find out, Kenji lives right nearby, but not with Livid and Abby!  I thought they all lived together, so I went to invite Lilac and Ronnie over, and Livid and her household over… but when I went to invite Livid, the only member of her house was a dog named Max.  Anyhoo, Lilac and Ronnie show up.
Screenshot-71
Definitely newlyweds, and apparently blocking the mailbox…

And I cannot find Abby ANYWHERE.  So that’s it. I’m switching households to find her.

And I do.

And it’s a sad, sad state of affairs.

First of all, Livid lives in this dump.
Screenshot-72
Which in itself isn’t too much of a problem…

But she’s drunker more juiced than a skunk kale at a vegan’s house, and SKIPPING WORK.
Livids sad life
Like seriously.  That’s so flippin’ depressing.

Oh, and Abby?  She’s out on the front porch in the snow.
Screenshot-73
While her mother gets juiced and tries to get FIRED.

Oh, to top things off, they have a heartbroken dog staring at a wall.
Screenshot-74
Seriously, he has the heartbroken moodlet from “witnessing a death” and is just staring at the dingy wall in this crappy place.

That’s it.  I’m moving them in with Kenji, Abby’s dad.

There.  All better.
Screenshot-75
Livid and her daughter Abby at home at Kenji’s nice place.

There’s another dog here, too!  And a horse!  Kenji had these guys.
Marney
Screenshot-76
And Patch
Screenshot-77
Who already seems to be getting along with Max.  Yay!  SO MUCH BETTER.

Man – story progression really did a number on poor Livid.  I had know idea.

OKAY – Back to the Zales.  Ronnie and Lilac didn’t stick around, which is kind of lame because I wanted to give Ronnie a make-over, but oh well.

How cute are these two, playing in the snow.
Screenshot-78
FAIL:  They were actually frozen like that and I had to reset them both.

What a good boy, doing his homework.
Screenshot-79
Our future acrobat heir.

It’s Lacey’s elder birthday!
Screenshot-80

Sweet gray lady.
Screenshot-81

Yay!  My shoving them together in the same house got them engaged!
livid engaged
I’m so pleased!  No mind that Livid is a Zombie in the thumbnail.  It’s a full moon.

Lav went to stop by Livid and Kenji’s house, but no one was home, so she waited.
Screenshot-82
Like all perfectly normal people.  No one home?  Nap on the porch.

It worked!  Livid shows up on her hoverboard.
Screenshot-83

She also is a zombie and has fleas.
Screenshot-84
SimLife could be better for her.  I’m tellin’ ya.

Lets see if Lavender can help her out.
Screenshot-85

Too dark picture is to show us we were successful.
Screenshot-86
That’s de-zombified, flea-free Livid saying thanks!  Lavender gained entrance, but couldn’t find Abby or Kenji, so she interviewed Livid and left.

Screaming Minnie wakes up the ENTIRE HOUSE because SOMEONE (Kyle!) put her swing on fast.
Screenshot-87
Now all the kids are awake and exhausted and the school bus will be here soon.  GRR.

WAIT!  It’s a snow day!  How lucky!

Apparently my “no wild horses” gnome is on the fritz.
Screenshot-88
But aren’t they lovely?

Lavender, being no longer “with child” can ride her horses again!
Screenshot-89
Just about now I feel like it’s been Winter for A MILLION YEARS.  I do a mouse over?  Spring is in FIVE DAYS…. UGH.

Anyway, time for a ride.
Screenshot-90

Now that.
Screenshot-91
Is Fancy.

Aw.
Screenshot-92

Prom is in three hours!  We get to meet Mary’s date!
Screenshot-93
I’m excited!

The limo is here girls!
Screenshot-94
Meg looks awesome.

And Mary?  That’s NOT your formal.
Screenshot-95
*sigh* Oh well – have fun!

Hey!  It’s Sheldon!
Screenshot-96
Not bad at all!  I hope they have a nice time!

Highlights:  Sheldon and Mary go steady!  Meg is prom queen, and Meg starts having “strong feelings” for Ray!
This is Ray:
Ray
Hard to tell from the small pic, but looks promising!

Then Mary, who decided to hit the LIBRARY after prom (party on, Mary) gets arrested.
Screenshot-97

Needless to say, Lavender is less than pleased.
Screenshot-98
But plus side!  That’s Mary’s formal!

We let her off the hook immediately for two reasons.
Screenshot-99
One, I get sick of the cycle of skipping school, grounded repeat – and she was at the library for heavens sake.

Kenji and Livid got married!
wedding
Heck Yes!

I’m done here, that’ll be $125.00
Screenshot-100
😐

Livid, you’re here!  With egg rolls!
Screenshot-101

And Lilac!  She brought lasagna!
Screenshot-102
Those buttons look a little um, silly, on that coat.

Here’s Sheldon again, Mary’s beau.
Screenshot-103
Definite potential there!

It’s a birthday party for the three youngest Zales!
Screenshot-104

We get to see if Minnie is an alien!
Screenshot-105
I’m excited!

Quite the party!
Screenshot-106
Kenji, Livid’s husband is the old man in the overalls.

And here’s a proper look at Ray, Meg’s RI.
Screenshot-107
Bad hair, but I can fix that.  It’ll be interesting to see what he looks like.

So!  Everyone had their cake and sparkles, aged up, and I jotted down all the new traits, etc… but the game crashed during my second make-over.

I know that parties can crash my game, so I saved right before the guests arrived, so no harm there.  However, I’m not interested in doing it again right now, AT ALL, so that’ll be for next time.  I’d let you know their new traits, but since everyone’s were locked in, they’ll get different ones next time.  I was going to end this post right after their make-overs anyway, so now is just as good.  Sort of.

Until next time, my dearests, Happy Simming!

No Pancakes For You 12.4

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.
Screenshot
And so is her husband, Krypton.
Screenshot-2
And those more astute readers might see that Lavender is ALSO just standing there.
Screenshot-3
I am entertaining photo taking blogger extraordinaire.

Let’s see if the rest are more interesting…

Kyle is asleep.
Screenshot-4
*Yawn*

Aha!  Little Meg is actually doing something!
Screenshot-5
TO THE WATERSLIDE!  WEE!

Here’s Mary asleep in her crib.
Screenshot-6
I love her little outfit.

Mango found this dastardly toy.
Screenshot-7
*Cheat deletes it*

Melody is also asleep in her crib.
Screenshot-8
Here little cherry jammies are cute too!

Lacey & Leah are hanging out with the ice cream truck.
Screenshot-9
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.
Screenshot-10
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.
Screenshot-11
Meg watches.

Of course Livid is more agreeable, she was a definite favorite of mine!
Screenshot-12
I’ll make sure Lavender writes up something nice.

Krypton, you’re scaring me, old man.
Screenshot-13
He is like, MEGA working out, and pouring sweat.

Sam is taking care of the toddlers who have woken up hungry and demanding.
Screenshot-14
Thanks lady!
Screenshot-16
Such a sweet grandma.  ❤

I finally remembered to mark Lavender with “The Gnome”.
Screenshot-17
Tada.

She’s rolled a couple midlife crises wishes.  One to flirt with someone else, and one to flirt with this guy, Dakota.
Screenshot-18
So here she is flirting…

Also, I don’t want to make this a wasted visit, so we decide to interview him too.
Screenshot-19
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.
Screenshot-20
Real classy there, Lavender.

Then – the most amazing thing to ever happen in the history of this blog – happens.
Liv is peggo!
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.
Screenshot-21
Pretty stinkin’ cute.

The girls end up in the swings…
Screenshot-22
…Much to Krypton’s enjoyment.  Such lovely little toddlers!

There’s still some love and affection between Kyle and Lav too.
Screenshot-23
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?
Screenshot-24
It certainly looks weird…
Screenshot-25
I save before she eats it in case something super frightening happens.
Screenshot-26
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…
demon toddler
Spoooky.

Anyhoo, so I get this pop up…
Lilac got married
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.
Screenshot-27
Let’s get some promotions!

Hi sweet Sam!
Screenshot-28
Your lifebar is full. 😦

So is yours, Krypton –
Screenshot-29
But you work out CONSTANTLY.

Pretty limber for 92!
Screenshot-30
And hilarious.

This incredibly unique bald boy said he wanted to come home with Meg after school.
Screenshot-31
I said “SURE!”
Screenshot-32
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!
Screenshot-33
She rolls “Star Quality”

And I choose to embrace that new trait.
Screenshot-34
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?
Screenshot-35
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.

*boop*
Screenshot-36
In robotic voice: Parenting complete.

Aw, so cute!  Lavender wanted to pillow fight, and Meg wanted to get attention from mom…
Screenshot-37
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.
Screenshot-38
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.
Screenshot-39
Too bad the bus is going to come in about seven seconds.  No pancakes for you.

Ooh, Meg!  You turkey!
Screenshot-40
Maybe she DIDN’T get to sleep.  She was almost there.  -5

On the plus side, Livid had her baby!
Baby Abbey
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.
Screenshot-41
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.
Screenshot-42
Lavender DOES have reports to write…

Dude, she looks possessed.
Screenshot-43
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.
Screenshot-44
It was a negative report, because it was my only option.

The next day Lavender finally gains entrance into Kenji and Livid’s home.
Screenshot-45
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:
Screenshot-46
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!
Screenshot-47
It was very crowded.

A bunch of cute townies enjoyed a pie eating contest.
Screenshot-48
I tried to get a Zale involved, but I was too late.

Livid was at the festival in her career outfit!
Screenshot-49
I still can’t find her baby 😦

And way to go Kyle.
Screenshot-50
-5

Apple bobbing time (Ha, I totally just typed boobing and had to fix it)
Screenshot-51

Lavender gets one!
Screenshot-52
So does Mary!
Screenshot-53
I just adore Mary – ever so much.

Lavender won!

Kyle got his face painted again.
Screenshot-54
Very fancy.  Goes great with your pee soaked pants.

Hi Sam!
Screenshot-55
And there’s Krypton and Mango in the background and…
…What’s happening?
Screenshot-56
Right in front of the BABY!?!  Oh man.

Poor Meg and Krypton.
Screenshot-57
😦

But if you want a good turn out for mourning, die at a public place on a holiday.
Screenshot-58
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.
Screenshot-59
Fare thee well, woman with fifty books in her inventory now transferred to Krypton, Fare thee well.

Oh the heartbreak.
Screenshot-60
And need to pee.  And a nice view.

What the!?!  We JUST GOT HOME FROM THE FESTIVAL!
Screenshot-61
Krypton: I WANT PANCAKES!

Bye Krypton…
Screenshot-62
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!
Screenshot-63

Death:  No pancakes for you.
Screenshot-64
Lavender:  DAD TOO!?!  *Cries and cries and wails for ever*

I’ll eat your pancakes, Daddy.
Screenshot-65
More pancakes for me.

So, on the flip side, Kyle finally gets a grown up bedroom.
Screenshot-66
He’s been sleeping in Livid’s old room since he moved in.

And ya know… this:
Screenshot-67
Kyle:  Let’s make babies!
Lavender:  DAD!  I MISS YOU.

😐

Moving on…

I know, sweet Mary – it’s pretty sad.
Screenshot-68
But just be grateful you only have to mourn once.  Seriously – it’s a huge benefit.

I like her cute little outfit.
Screenshot-69

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.
Screenshot-70
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.
Screenshot-71
So far so good.

THEY WAKE.
Screenshot-72
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!
Screenshot-73
And wait. Those are cakes.

I guess I don’t have the promotion picture.  Ahem… There’s an event today!
Screenshot-73
See?

Lilac is here!
Screenshot-74
Recently widowed.

Livid is too!
Screenshot-75
*Waves back*

I’m not sure we’ll see this again, so toddler flower trail!
Screenshot-76

It’s Meg’s birthday!
Screenshot-77

Mango too!
Screenshot-78
He’s so cute.

Meg rolled ambitious!  And this is how she aged up.
Screenshot-79
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…
We're worth nearly 700k
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.
Screenshot-80
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!
Screenshot-81

Hey look!  He still leaves a trail!
Screenshot-82
Wee!

Melody rolls virtuoso to join excitable and easily impressed.
Screenshot-83
Yeah, that’ll need a make-over.

Livid breaks out this future instrument (and is terrible at it)
Screenshot-84
And Lilac mourns her deceased husband.

Poor thing.
Screenshot-85
They were married for like, two days.

Make-over Shots:

Anyhoo, here’s Meg!
Screenshot-86
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!
Screenshot-87
She’s adorable.

And our plant-man Mango!
Screenshot-88
What a little darling!

Just after the party, and everyone has left – I get another pop-up!
Lilac's second marriage
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…
Screenshot-89
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!

Can’t Birth a Boy 12.3

Hai!  Sorry I was gone for so long, I spent the Thanksgiving holiday (and my birthday!) in Phoenix, AZ with my in-laws.  Had a lovely time.  Got home Just a few days ago and TADA!  Zale post comin’ at ya live!  Let’s get started shall we?

ZALE CHECK!
Samali, Kyle & Krypton are all swarming baby Mary.
Screenshot
Hi guys – I missed you!

Little Meg is in her crib.
Screenshot-2
She may be a “not-boy” and green-ish skinned, but I think she’s pretty great.

Bailey is having a snack.
Screenshot-3

Leah is hiding in the bushes.
Screenshot-4
Doing horsey things.

Lavender and Lacey are out for a ride.
Screenshot-5
Fierce.

Aw, my sweet Meg.
Screenshot-6
I love toddlers.

And then just like that BAMMO…
Screenshot-7
…I remodeled the nursery.

Taking a break from pregnancy, Lavender is out training Leah at the training grounds.
Screenshot-8
I think that’s a spiffy picture.

While out for a ride, Leah rolled a horsey wish to win an advanced racing competition, so Lavender gives it her best shot.
compete in a race
We got second place.

Kyle does some autonomous parenting.
Screenshot-9
This was the first time he’d picked up his daughter.  Sad faces.

Speaking of parenting, we’re about to make it a bit more challenging!
Screenshot-10
Of course, Lav was getting a massage that she’d wished for (and paid for) had to come out midway through to show me she was pregnant, which I’d already known, then go BACK IN and pay for ANOTHER massage to grant the wish.  Redonkulous.

Once Kyle picked up baby Mary, he just wouldn’t put her down.
Screenshot-11
And I found that to be adorable.

Someone fed this little peanut while I wasn’t looking.
Screenshot-12
no complaints here!

Aw.
Screenshot-13
She’s neat.

Boop.
Screenshot-14
Parenting complete.

Lavender is a very doting momma, and rolls lots of momma wishes.
Screenshot-15
Like to buy, then use, this stroller. Have fun you two.

Hi Husband!
Screenshot-16
We’re having another baby!

AHHHHH!
Screenshot-17

I mean neat.
Screenshot-18
*Thumbs up*

Bailey had rolled a wish to Sniff Meg, and I wasn’t sure he could even do that until she became a child, but I thought I’d try – so I go have Lavender fetch the little muffin, then set her in the pasture.
Screenshot-19
Um, holy cute.

I cannot believe how adorable this is.
Screenshot-20
And that’s not Bailey – that’s Leah – oh well.  Apparently it was Leah’s wish.

Sam then decides the baby should NOT be left in the pasture with three full-grown horses…

…and hauls her inside after an autonomous CLAW ATTACK, which I failed to capture.  Samali appears to be just finishing a thought about herself.

Quick chat with dad – totally not to stop him from messing with the swings either…
Screenshot-22
Have to make sure everyone knows there’s another babe on the way.

Kyle reminds me of Ramon.
Screenshot-23
Not just the childish trait, but the afro too.  Although Kyle’s is different.

Lav lives on a strict diet of nothing but apples.
Screenshot-24
I would like a boy please.

Lavender had a sore back, so I sent her off to the spa and followed Kyle around for entertainment.
Screenshot-25
Precious, sweet entertainment.  In swim trunks.

With Lavender pregnant for what seems like the umpteenth time, I send her off to the festival to make friends and write more reports.  I decide the whole family could use the outing, so here’s grumpy, pregnant Lavender carrying Meg.
Screenshot-26
You’ll have fun, I promise.

We get a portrait taken, per Lav’s wishes, and then I send her off to make friends.
Screenshot-27
So she can then write them up – totally legit.

I love it when Sims choose to do things like get their face painted.
Screenshot-28
I’m excited to see what he picks!

Uh oh – either this old man is dying…
Screenshot-29
…or Bailey is.

Damn.  It’s Bailey.
Screenshot-30
Quit hugging him you jerk!

I love Bailey extra bunches, but I knew our time with him would be brief, since he was an elder upon adoption into the Zale house…
Screenshot-31
But at least he exits in style.  I’ll miss you, Bay.

But, on the bright side, Kyle emerges from the painting booth looking extra fancy.
Screenshot-32
Looks good with your eyes, there bud.  Nice choice.

If this old totter would hurry up, I bet they could start the contest.
Screenshot-33
He took too long, and the challenge cancelled.  DAMN.

The loss of Bailey impacts the group.
Screenshot-34
I know, it’s very sad.

Samali!
Screenshot-35
-5

SERIOUSLY?
Screenshot-36
Old lady bladder ain’t what it used to be.  -5 more.

Lavender was just heading to pick up Meg, and Labor strikes!
Screenshot-37
I hope all those apples have worked!

Poor fancy Kyle.
Screenshot-38
Now go join your wife.

Well, hang the portrait real quick-like.
Screenshot-39
Aw.

Aaaaannnd…
Screenshot-40
It’s a girl.  Lavender’s face reflects my own feelings on the matter.  She had BOTH traits locked in which like, is a legacy first.  She’s easily impressed and excitable.  And her name is Melody.

Lavender continues to play favorites, and rolls more and more wishes for first born Meg.
Screenshot-41

But even while cherishing her children…
Screenshot-42
…The loss of Bailey is fresh on her mind.

So – I planted this thing ages ago, kind of inspired by Pink’s Madness, and I thought, what the hey, let’s pick it.
Screenshot-43
The death of Bailey opened up a house slot… so why not.

No, this isn’t creepy at all.
Screenshot-44
😐

Weeeiiirrrdd…
Screenshot-45
Creepy human pod.

What the hell?  IT’S A BOY!
Screenshot-46
I think Lavender’s expression there pretty much sums it up.

Amazing.
Screenshot-47
I name him Mango – because it’s the first plant-type thing I thought of that started with M.

Weird plant babies aside, we have a birthday today!
Screenshot-48

Mary gets to become a toddler!
Screenshot-49
Lav:  *puts baby on floor*  Peace out.

Aw, she’s adorable!
Screenshot-50
She likes spiceberry, mushroom omelets and beach party music.  So lovely and human!  Also absent minded and friendly.

Sam loves all her grandbabies.
Screenshot-51
And Krypton really misses that horse.

Little Mary is adorable too, and has nice dark skin.
Screenshot-52
Look how green Mango is!

Cute potty training face.
Screenshot-53
Don’t hurt yourself kid.

A little toddler spam can’t hurt ya.
Screenshot-54
Omnomnom BLOCKS.

With another break from pregnancy, Lavender takes Lacey out for a ride.
Screenshot-55

Here’s little Meg, one of her last moments as a toddler.
Screenshot-56
They grow up so fast!

Here’s grandma Sam looking grandma annoyed in her grandma PJ’s.
Screenshot-57
Yes yes, I’m sure you and Kyle are both in each others way to do something detrimental to the babies in the swings.

Whoops, washer broke.
Screenshot-58
For some reason, I love it when the washer breaks.  I think it’s the bubbles.

Then, this insanely stupid music started – kind of like carnival music, but happier?  Not as creepy?  It was louder sometimes and quieter sometimes, depending on where I was on the lot.  And I discovered it was linked to this guy.
Screenshot-59
Yes, look sad.  It is bad and you should feel bad.
I went into edit town mode, split him from the house, then put him back.

It was surprisingly successful!
Screenshot-60
Yes yes, welcome back, all smiles now!

Livid and Lilac are here!
Screenshot-61
Hi ladies!  It’s nice to see you – even if you’re pulling faces, Lil.

There’s a few birthdays on the horizon!
Screenshot-62
(You have no idea how hard it was to get all three babies downstairs in those swings…)

Baby Melody goes first!
Screenshot-63
At least grandma cares.  Sam always cares.

Meg is next!
Screenshot-64
WOOSH!
Screenshot-65
This cake extra seasoned with toddler spit.

It’s the Plantbaby’s turn!
Screenshot-66
Oh Krypton, you old coot.  ❤

There’s one last cake, and it’s for Lavender herself!
Screenshot-67
Lookin’ good.
Screenshot-68
I think the few more lines make her look lovely.

So here we have little Melody.
Screenshot-69
She is excitable and easily impressed, and likes – aqua?  Yeah.  What a little peanut.

Then we have Meg, who rolled shy to join loner and easily impressed.
Screenshot-70
I think she’s a sweetie.

Lastly, Plantbaby Mango.
Screenshot-71
Unfortunately, his favorite color is lime – holy green!  But I LOVE his golden eyes.

And there’s definitely some awesome with a plantsim baby.
Screenshot-72
Pretty neat!
Screenshot-73
So – I like the little guy, but they can’t spread genetics or reproduce without cloning themselves into forbidden fruit seeds – SO I know he will have only Lavender’s looks, and if he is to be the only boy, I’ll cure him of his Plantsimism if he’s to be the TH.  I’m also planning on waiting patiently for the death of Krypton and/or Samali to try two more times for some boys.  So we’ll see.

He also learns REALLY quickly – his skill bar is this full from only one potty session.
Screenshot-74
Nearly half!

I then got a pop-up about how Kyle was feeling younger and revitalized, and I knew he’d been busy in the spa – so I checked on his stats – knowing he was already a few days younger than Lavender – and I was shocked to see he was all the way at the beginning of his lifestage.  I think when I split him from the house and back in, to kill the scary music, he aged all the way back down.  SO!
Screenshot-75
There, steamy forced birthday all alone in the basement.  Serves you right you – handsome guy.

Back upstairs, Krypton and little Mary are failing to communicate.
Screenshot-76
She’s hungry, but he picked her up, and put her back into the play pen about a thousand times.

HOLY CRAP!
married!
Lilac is getting married to Chuck Hobble!  That other guy both her and her sister dated for a minute, Tate Curely or somewhat, he died.  She’s just a full on adult now, so hopefully, even though he’s old, he’ll give her BABIES!  ONE Zale cousin, just ONE would be awesome.

The three eldest Zale women share breakfast together.
Screenshot-77

Then we have a little alien bonding with dad.
Screenshot-78
And that’s where I stopped playing…

I MEANT to stop after the birthdays, but I got kinda distracted.  Oh well.  So!  There you have it!  Not much looming in the immediate future, but Lav will finally start going to work again soon, and maybe, just maybe we can get promoted past level 3 or whatever pathetic level we’re at right now.  So until next time, Happy Simming!

Nothin’ But Girls 12.2

Hey there Friends of The Zales!  Welcome back!  Last time, Lavender got married!  And some horsie things – but not much else.  This time – well, it’s a bit of an adventure.  Sort of.

Let us proceed with…da da DUMM!  ZALE CHECK:
Samali is asleep…
Screenshot
Like she always is during Zale Checks.

Dear old Krypton is taking a bath…
Screenshot-2
Cute little old man

Lavender is here at the spa getting a massage.
Screenshot-3

Kyle – also being human is asleep in Livid’s old bedroom.
Screenshot-4
I went ahead and assigned this bed to him.  Since Lavender doesn’t sleep, I didn’t feel obligated to make them a couples suite.  When Sam and Krypton pass, I’ll let Kyle move up there.  This will do for now.

Just after the Zale Check, I decide to go ahead and try to grab a couple SimSelves that are .sim flies.  With help from Nate (phyrcracker93) and the rest of you lovely readers I was successful in grabbing Pink’s SimSelf (FINALLY!) and Nate too.  I tossed you all in a two bedroom house.  Have fun with that.
SimSelf
Hee hee hee.  Oh – and we also have Sammy Sama and Julia – as well as Jasmine Miller and Anne-Marie Kultura.  Pretend I wasn’t lazy and linked all those.

Hi guys, having fun yet?
Screenshot-5
Just hang on, Lavender is on her way.

Julia and Nate are off to a winning start.
Screenshot-6
It’s always Julia.

Lavender introduces herself.
Screenshot-7

Nate heartfarts Lav, but Lav heartfarts the bathtub.
Screenshot-8
While Julia sneaks off.  Oh Sims.

Then my game crashed.  I reloaded and ALL my settings were gone.  It was full screen, low graphics, memories enabled, supernaturals on, celebrities ETC.  AND when I opened the Zale file, I got a pop-up message about missing items that had been replaced.  Say WHAT?!?  What did I do?  AH!  I guess we’ll have to see what happens…

Well, this time around, Lavender meets Sammy and Julia.
Screenshot-9
Good, make friends!

Lav gains entrance to the house, there’s a pop up about a Spring festival and *pOOf* Sammy Spins into food merchant attire and exits.
Screenshot-10
Aw, she’s an adorable food merchant.

Everyone else gets on fine in their ceiling-free house.
Screenshot-11
Albeit, tiny house.

Julia also joins the food merchant lifestyle.
Screenshot-12
Toodles!

Nate makes some waffles.
Screenshot-13

Lav and Pink have a chat.
Screenshot-14

And Sammy adopts a…
Sammy gets a pet
…um.. catdog?  A pet.  Sammy adopts a pet.

Lavender was still at their house when Hawk arrived at his new home.
Screenshot-15
Aw, he’s a cutie little peanut!  I’m sorry I didn’t know if he was a cat or dog from the pop-up.  He’s adorbs.

I buy the family four sets of bunk-beds, and a few doggie items for baby Hawk.
Screenshot-16
I even have Lavender fill the food dish before leaving.

Back at the estate, I start to notice the “missing items”…
Screenshot-17
When I first saw this, I thought maybe end tables had vanished…leaving “small ivy” on the floor… I wasn’t sure though…

Hmm, this isn’t right.
Screenshot-18
What’s with the random toy box?  I think that might’ve been the walker.  (FALSE: It was the play pen)  I’m missing tons of items – not just store items, but regular ones too.  I wonder what I did?

And then my whole computer went a little haywire.  In my attempts to make the game run better, I seemed to have really borked things up.  I’ll spare you the details, but I did a system restore and then reviewed my Zale save files.

I’m not sure who told me about this, I think it was Jenn, but I keep four running saves of the current house.  Zales in AP 1, 2, 3, and 4.  Each time I do a “save as” I replace the next save.  The most recent Zale file had all the missing things, as well as the next most recent… but the third one I checked had all the correct items, and was right about where I started this post.  Lav was at the spa, Sam and Kyle asleep, and Krypton was about to get in the bath.  It does mean the SimSelves are not in the game, I’ll try again some other time.  Right now, I’m just happy to have things back to normal.

Screenshot-19
HA!  I thought it might’ve been tables – but no, game just replaced my lovely giant palms with tiny little ivy plants.  Sure…

But – I started playing, or trying to play over two hours ago, and now I’m right back where I started with the Sim Check.  This game is a ton of work.  Labor of love.  Stupid.

Then I took a cute video of Bailey playing with the horse ball – but I didn’t upload it so you’ll just have to settle for this:
Screenshot-20
But seriously, how cute?

I love him.
Screenshot-21
And all my horses.

The serious storm has spooked them, however.
Screenshot-22
But Lav is here to calm them.

Since Lavender cannot ride while pregnant (stupid) she maintains her relationship with them by keeping them clean and groomed.
Screenshot-23
Rain or shine.

I hope the garden thaws soon.
Screenshot-24
We’re running a bit low on horse carrots.

Being on maternity leave, I have Lavender focus on reports.  She’s almost friends with Imogene Pelly, so we’re going to pay her a visit.
Screenshot-25
Nice digs!  But no one was home except the dog.  Dang.

I decided people might be over at the festival.
Screenshot-26
And I was right!  Imogene is here too.

We get our interview on, and should have two more people to write up reports on.
Screenshot-27
I wanted to see if she could review the festival, but she couldn’t.

Back at home Sam enjoys some wedding cake.
Screenshot-28
Aw.

You two getting along?
Screenshot-29
Good.

We write a negative report on Imogene Pelly – for two reasons…
Screenshot-30
…one, I’ve never done that before and two, I don’t think she’s a very nice Sim.  It didn’t even really damage their relationship.  Funny.

Aha!  My first spare romance!
Lilac starts a romance
They would have very ugly children.

Careful, buddy.
Screenshot-31
Stoves are hot.

Baby bump!
Screenshot-32
I think we’ll have a nooboo soon!

Livid!  You hussy!  That’s Lilac’s man!
Hussy Liv
I swear there has to be more than this guy out there.

And then Tate goes back to Lilac.
back to lil
My guess is no, it will not last.

Apparently filling the already full water trough is the thing to do today.
Screenshot-33
Clothing optional.

The garden is alive!
Screenshot-34
It’s looking a little sparse, but at least it won’t have gone to waste.  Once it’s empty, I’ll probably just delete the fencing.

My cute couple!
Screenshot-35
Way to spend time together ❤

Unstable Kyle rears his head.
Screenshot-36

And ouch – arms aren’t supposed to look like that.
Screenshot-37
I go ahead and have him “take deep breaths” whenever I notice the moodlet.  I don’t care if it’s cheating.

I spot these purple butterflies near the garden and decide that Lavender must catch one.
Screenshot-38

Aw, it was fancy too!
Screenshot-39
Worth 112 buckaroos.

Kyle:  WEE!  A HORSE! 😀
Screenshot-40
Bailey:  Old phone.

Oh Sam, you cutie.
Screenshot-41
Thanks!  Horses gotta eat.

Dang, we’re just trying to tend to the horses.
Screenshot-42
Zombie attendance not required.

Stop – BABY TIME!
Screenshot-43

While Lavender is heading off to the hospital, Sam is having a grand ol’ time with the zombie.
Screenshot-44
Funny!

Lavender is almost all the way to the hospital, and Kyle and Krypton are just chatting away.
Screenshot-45
Your wife is having a baby!  Although it DOES look like Krypton is saying “Get your bag and skedaddle!  Lavender needs you!” *makes air walking gestures with fingers*

Be safe Lavender!  I’ll be waiting for you, even if your husband isn’t.
Screenshot-46

Due to Kyle’s rebellious nature, I bought him a motorcycle.
Screenshot-47
Nice to see him use it, now get going!

It’s a girl!  I can’t think of a theme or anything, so I just name her Meg, and she rolls loner and easily impressed.
Screenshot-48
Oh look.  She’s green/gray.  And not a boy.

But it’s still exciting to meet the first of a new generation.
Screenshot-49
Although I’m hardly over the moon for her.

Loves.
Screenshot-50
Make me a boy please.

Here’s the lonely baby I can’t be bothered to care about.
Screenshot-51
And then I start feeling kinda bad.  It’s not HER fault.

Out for a late night ride on Leah, Lavender suddenly dismounts and…
Screenshot-52
Shows us she’s pregnant again!
Screenshot-53
It’s gotta be awfully cold in that skirt!  (Note:  Coldest, wettest spring ever.)

But romance is in the air, and Lilac and Tate announce their engagement!
Tate picks Lilac, finally
Looks like that little side thing he had with Livid was a one time thing.

I send Lavender around to do all the laundry, and catch Krypton working out very strenuously!
Screenshot-54
And smelly.  Be careful old guy, you aren’t as young as you used to be.

I see your feelings towards Meg are about the same as mine there, Lavender.
Screenshot-55
I didn’t want a green skinned girl either.

Kyle is nearly nekkid, and Lavender in her outerwear.
Screenshot-56
Oh Sims, keep the romance alive.

It’s Love Day, so I send the household to the festival.
Screenshot-57
Thought it’d be fun…

Except Lav can’t skate while pregnant, there’s no food vendors so she can’t get a snack…
Screenshot-58
…AND she was invited to a part at the Pelly place, so we’ll do that instead.

I couldn’t find anything to do at this stupid party, until I discovered a radio upstairs.
Screenshot-59
Lavender Zale embarks on my very. first. ever. Smustle!  I was so happy!

You are awesome, Lav.
Screenshot-60
She really boogied!

A quick dance to show her appreciation for the invite with the hostess…
Screenshot-61
…and then we head home.

I decide I need to at least take care of Meg.
Screenshot-62
And give her some much needed love and attention.  There.  All better.

Ha!  Everyone’s getting their groove on today.
Screenshot-63
Kyle was jamming, so I had Lav join him.

Hopefully this one is a boy who looks more like his daddy.
Screenshot-64
Too sweet.

Aw, he’s definitely not stepping on her toes anymore!
Screenshot-66
Precious!

Hi Sam! Just checkin’ on you!
Screenshot-65
Still adorable, I see.

Nice Lavender.
Screenshot-67
You always look so happy with Meg.

But hey – it’s her birthday!
Screenshot-68
And probably the fetus too!

Grandpa Krypton gets his party on.
Screenshot-69

So does starving Grandma Sam.
Screenshot-70
Just hang in there, you can have cake soon.

Dad shoes up too, always in his underwear.
Screenshot-71
Oh well, he’s handsome, so I don’t mind so much.

She’s a cutie.  And a human.
Screenshot-72
She has her dad’s hair color and eye color – and is a bit bluer than her mom?  But the rest of her features are pretty much Lavender. Her favorite color is turquoise.

Her teddy…
Screenshot-73
…is terrifying.

Time for Meg to teach herself some life skills.
Screenshot-74
Have fun!

Aw dang, look at her little face.
Screenshot-75
She’s pretty adorable, I have to admit.

Krypton continues to work out all the time, he might even max the skill!
Screenshot-76
Hi laundry gnome!

Lavender shares her new baby news with her momma.
Screenshot-77
Aw.
Screenshot-78
Too sweet.

Gotta work on that last skill!
Screenshot-79

And finished!
Screenshot-80
Meg was an INCREDIBLY fast study.  Lavender didn’t even complete her second pregnancy and Meg is all skilled up!

Okay!  It’s TIME!
Screenshot-81
THINK BOY!  BOY BOY BOY!

Aaaand… it’s a girl.  Mary is friendly and absent minded… BUT CHECK OUT THAT SKIN TONE!
Screenshot-82
She’s my first non green/grayish baby since Juniper’s siblings.

Kyle cracks me up…
Screenshot-83
Dragon!  RAWR!  And then does adorable things with his hands.

Oh little Mary – if only you were a boy, you’d be perfect.
Screenshot-84

Kyle copes the way Kyle does.
Screenshot-85

And for our grand finale pic!
Screenshot-86
Heroic bareback pose.  The end.

Come back soon to see if we can EVER get a son out of Kyle and Lavender.  She may or may not be pregnant again right now – and if she is, it’s the last chance before the house is full.  It will make 7 Sims and 3 Horses.  Sam, Krypton, Kyle, Lavender, Meg, Mary, Fetus, Bailey, Lacey and Leah.  That means if this next one isn’t male, we need to wait for Bailey, Krypton and/or Sam to perish in order to keep trying!  Until then, Happy Simming!

A Winter Wedding 12.1

Hey Friends!  Last time Lavender took over and struggled to find a mate, but this time well… if you can’t tell from the title, we found someone!  Let’s get to it!

Zale Check!  Krypton is reading on his tablet.
Screenshot

Sam is sleeping.
Screenshot-2
As human’s are wont to do.

Lavender is still enjoying her mudbath.
Screenshot-3
Too many man troubles.  Calmud take me away.

Levi is stinky and pumping iron.
Screenshot-4
He sure works out a lot.  I’m telling ya, he did NOT like being called “chubby Krypton”.

Leslie is hanging out with the horses in the barn.
Screenshot-5
I love my barn.

Bailey is out napping in the snow.
