8 More birthdays (and a death)

Screenshot-x183

Violetta is pregnant again.

Violetta: I´m radiant!

Screenshot-x185

Violetta: Wait, I have to give birth AGAIN??

You were the one, who did a risky wohoo, right after having your first child.

Screenshot-x186

Nathan: Wheeeee!

Screenshot-x188

No clue, what´s going on here.

Screenshot-x189

Susan has her birthday!

Screenshot-x190

Poor cat has a really thin tail.

Screenshot-x191

Susan: Means less hairballs.

Okay then.

Screenshot-x193

Nathan has a little play corner. There´s no room for a nursery. He doesn´t seem to mind, he´s a good natured kid and learns fast.

Screenshot-x195

Baby time!

Screenshot-x196

It´s another blue burrito a boy.

Screenshot-x197

Violetta: Isn´t he cute?!

Totally. Well done! (I was hoping for a girl.)

Meet Steven! He rolled loner and grumpy. Kid is off to a good start.

Screenshot-x199

Rocking with the baby.

I think, sim-babies are terribly boring. So on to the birthday!

Screenshot-x201

Blond? Why is that kid blond??

Sigh. Sim genetics.

Screenshot-x203

In other news, mysterious gnome died. He rests near the cactus.

Screenshot-x204

Steven has his dad´s grey eyes.

Screenshot-x205

And he certainly doesn´t look very grumpy.

Screenshot-x206

Skilling together.

Screenshot-x207

Paul is an awesome dad!

Screenshot-x209

The brothers are very close.

Screenshot-x210

Aaand… This time a girl? Pretty please?

7 Birthday

Screenshot-x144

Violetta is pregnant and she and Paul rolled the wish to read a pregnancy book.

Screenshot-x145

Violetta seems a bit worried, though.

Screenshot-x153

Somehow I didn´t took any other pictures of her pregnancy. It´s already panic-time.

Violetta: OW!

Screenshot-x152

Paul: You better lay down, dear!

Screenshot-x154

Well, too late for that…

Screenshot-x156

Violetta: Look, what I made!

Well done!

Screenshot-x157

It´s a blue larvae a boy! His name is Nathan. He rolled neurotic and excitable.

Screenshot-x159

And as soon as he lays in his crib, his parents make him a sibling!

(I had them on autonomous risky wohoo.)

Screenshot-x160

Paul loves his little boy!

Screenshot-x161

And look who´s sick again!

Screenshot-x164

Violetta loves her little boy, too.

It´s already time for his birthday.

Screenshot-x166

Jonathan Morgan: Wow, you´re hot!

Violetta: Wow, same to you!

Paul: …

Sorry, Paul, your girlfriend is a hopeless romantic. She can´t help herself!

Screenshot-x167

Jonathan seems to be psychic: he talks to the new baby, even though Violetta doesn´t “know” she´s pregnant again.

Screenshot-x169

Hopeless romantic or not, she doesn´t accept flowers from Taj Diwan!

Screenshot-x172

And it´s time for the cake!

Screenshot-x173

Only Paul seems to care. The guests prefer to watch tv.

Screenshot-x174

Or in case of Taj Diwan and his wife Zahra to wohoo in Paul and Violetta´s bed.

Screenshot-x176

Put the baby on the floor…

Screenshot-x178

And *poof* it´s a toddler! A very colourful one.

Screenshot-x179

Phoenix Ross stays in our good books by instantly playing with him.

Screenshot-x180

But he´s tired, so after makeover it´s time for bed.

Screenshot-x181

He most definitely has Violetta´s nose!

Screenshot-x182

But he´s a cute one!

6 Renovations and some barfing

Screenshot-x131

Back home there are some renovations to be made – the barn actually starts to look like a house!

Screenshot-x132

Violetta shows the sprinkler who´s boss.

Screenshot-x133

This wohooium was actually found by Violetta in the catacombs of Lucky Palms in pre Paul times. Sybil likes to sleep next to it. I guess it´s warm?

Screenshot-x135

It certainly sparks a lot at the moment!

Screenshot-x136

And we have barfing! Um… that´s the wrong sim.

*checks mod-settings*

Oh, it´s just something he ate.

Screenshot-x138

Ah, here we go!

Screenshot-x139

And some derping.

Paul: Um, Violetta?

Screenshot-x140

Paul: What´s wrong with her?

She´ll tell you in a moment.

Screenshot-x141

That´s actually not bad for maternity wear.

Screenshot-x142

Violetta: I´m pregnant!

Screenshot-x143

And this is what I would think is a more proper reaction than the usual clapping-on-shoulder-thumbs-up. (Of course, I made them do it. But still).

5 On holiday

Screenshot-x109

Look who´s in France!

Screenshot-x110

Violetta instantly starts bonding with the fellow tourists.

Screenshot-x111

For one reason or other, this room is very attractive.

Screenshot-x112

Violetta visits the museum and meets some charming locals. She also acquires two gnomes and finds the catacombs.

Screenshot-x113

Screenshot-x114

She only explores them a bit and doesn´t like it AT ALL, being a coward. But she finds some coins and a rainbow gem, which could be very handy for her future kids.

Vi: Whut?

Never mind.

Screenshot-x115

I wanted them to sleep in the same bed, but the table was in the way.

Great job of designing a room, EA. Sigh.

Paul has to sleep in a single bed.

Screenshot-x116

But at least he gets his favourite food in the morning. Pancakes!

Screenshot-x123

Paul visits the nectary. He buys some bottles of wine nectar, and harvests some grapes.

Screenshot-x124

Screenshot-x125

Violetta does a bit of sightseeing and seed and gem hunting.

Violetta: Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

She has a lot of fun driving that scooter.

Screenshot-x126Paul encounters the french electrical bears. He finds a book, I think.

Screenshot-x127I thought, if Violetta meets a nice french man, we go for it, but she didn´t so…

Screenshot-x129Let´s make this official!

Screenshot-x130

Screenshot-x121And they finally get to sleep in the same bed. They are so cute!

 

 

 

 

4 Gambling, skilling and a birthday

Screenshot-x85

Last chapter Violetta found a lucky coin in the wishing well, so I finally remembered to place the casino.

Screenshot-x86

Violetta plays Blackjack under the fullmoon light.

Screenshot-x87

She even wins!

Paul wins a lot more at the slot machine, so I think we can expand the barn.

Screenshot-x90

Tadaa!

The garden is much better since Paul moved in. His lifetime wish is the perfect garden, by the way. He didn´t have one (poor guy), so I chose one from the list. He also wants to work in science. His green thumb is great for both.

Screenshot-x89

Existential crisis statue interlude. Every other day this guy loses his foundation.

Screenshot-x91

See?

Screenshot-x92

Before Paul can start his job, he needs a bit of skilling. Vi is probably painting at home.

Screenshot-x93

That´s NOT a pool.

Screenshot-x94

Paul looks for special seeds in the catacombs.

Screenshot-x95

But he only finds the electrical bears.

Screenshot-x96

More skilling. Um, we do have some chairs, you know?

Paul: I like it here.

Okay then.

Screenshot-x97

Screenshot-x98

Violetta got an opportunity for some streetart. It turned out pretty nice, I think.

Screenshot-x99

Vi: You know, we should go on vacation.

They both want to travel, but we can´t afford it just yet.

Screenshot-x100

Well, well, well. Autonomus smooching. Didn´t you rate him 1 out of 10, Vi?

Vi: Shuddup. Busy.

Okay, I´ll watch the cats or something.

Screenshot-x101

Speaking of the cats – there´s a birthday!

Screenshot-x102

Sybil: Tickles!

Screenshot-x103

Sybil: Muuuuuuuuuuuuch better!

Screenshot-x104

Sybil: Now I can play in the toilet!

Which she did.

Screenshot-x108

Sybil and Susan are actually littermates and born on the same day. For some reason or other Sybil is now a few days older.

Screenshot-x105

And we end this post with Violetta and Paul romantically stargazing – or contemplating the holes in the roof of the barn.

 

 

 

3 Wishing for love

We are still hunting men.

Violetta phones Lennon Sosa, but he doesn´t have time.

Screenshot-x60

So she goes fishing instead. I really like Lucky Palms.

Screenshot-x61

 

Screenshot-x62

Afterwards Violetta visits Lennon.

Screenshot-x63

They all have so very fancy houses. Can we really invite them to live in the barn??

Screenshot-x64

Screenshot-x65

Screenshot-x66

Screenshot-x67

Aaand again a ghost story. What´s wrong with this people?

Screenshot-x68

Hey! Stop that dirty talk right there!

He has to go to work right after, so I send Violetta to the wishing well again.

Screenshot-x70

Wishing for love…

Screenshot-x71

Screenshot-x72

Vi: What is that??!

That´s your true love. You have to kiss it.

Screenshot-x73

Vi: I have to kiss a frog??

Just do it.

Screenshot-x75

Frogsplosion!

Screenshot-x76

That´s Paul Deohring. Which isn´t a name at all. Well, Paul is OK.

We like. Don´t we, Vi?

Vi: Meh. (Rates him 1 out of 10)

We´ll see.

Screenshot-x78

He DOES have a really bad case of random clothing.

We can fix that.

Screenshot-x79

Might have fixed the age a bit as well. He´s an adult now, not an elder. He had that weird greenish brown hair, but I thought white suits him well, so there.

They started as romantic interests (well, they DID kiss) and with the frienship bar full green, so Violetta invites him to move in, because I´m afraid the game will eat him otherwise.

Paul is exitable, a natural cook , clumsy, hydrophobic and a green thumb. He seems to be a nice sim. I send him home and watch him for a while.

He starts tending the garden. Good first impression.

Screenshot-x80

Whoops. Methinks, he had a cane. It´s invisible now.

Screenshot-x81

No, there it is. I move it into the family inventory. It would be kind of nice, if non-elders could use canes, too.

Screenshot-x82

Bonding with the cats. He IS a nice sim!

Screenshot-x83

I left Violetta at the wishing well. She came home with all kind of funky moodlets and a lucky coin.

Paul got a bed for himself. They could have slept in the double, but well… they only met today.

 

 

 

2 We need a spouse

This being a sort of legacy, we need a spouse. Violetta´s first attempts weren´t very successful, so we try a different approach.

Screenshot-x33

The wishing well!

Screenshot-x34

Violetta: I´m so excited!

Screenshot-x35

Mmmmmmmh?

Screenshot-x36

Violetta! What are you doing?!

Violetta: It didn´t work! I want my money back!

Vi, I don´t think, that´s such a good idea…

Screenshot-x37

Glubb, glurble…

Told you.

Sigh. Maybe next time.

Screenshot-x42

We meet Jaycen Hendrix at the library. Autonomous flirting, but I don´t like him that much.

Vi: Should´t I like him?

Shush. Try the alchemy shop.

Screenshot-x43

Vi: That´s a nice man!

See? Go talk to him!

Screenshot-x44

Vi: I can´t! There´s air in the way!

Cornelius Vandeen: She´s hot!

Screenshot-x45

They had a nice chat until…

What? What did he say?

Screenshot-x46

Vi: …you don´t want to know!

I guess, he´s inappropiate.

Okay. Go home!

Screenshot-x48

The next day we give a party. That´s Phoenix Ross, Jaycen Hendrix and Naomi Nita. Everyone put their plates on the floor, because there is no table.

Screenshot-x49

Nice dress though. And a new friend.

Screenshot-x50

The next morning, our second home, the park. Not much going on there.

Screenshot-x51

Violetta wants a tatoo, so she gets a heart. I forgot to take a picture.

Screenshot-x53

Afterwards Vi decides to give fashion advice to this customer. I didn´t know, this was even possible.

Screenshot-x54

Aaaand the pool.

Vi: I should have brought a book.

No! Talk to the nice man! Argh! He got away. Violetta!

Screenshot-x55

Vi: Don´t care. Bubbles!

I have to admit, I probably would have done that too. That pool area is gorgeous!

Screenshot-x56

Look! It´s Phoenix! Still married, though. And he has a daughter.

But there´s Violettas tatoo!

Screenshot-x57

Lennon Sosa doesn´t approve of the flirting.

Screenshot-x58

Probably, because he wants to do some flirting of his own.

Screenshot-x59

Why is everyone telling ghost stories??

We go home.

Screenshot-x40

Sorry, kittens, I´m pretty sure, that´s an autum salad.

Ah, well. More luck next time.
