22 Growing older

Screenshot-x464

Steven is particulary grumpy today.

Screenshot-x465

He makes me laugh.

Screenshot-x466

Actually it´s a happy occasion. Another birthday!

Screenshot-x467

Paul: I´m not sure about this!

Screenshot-x468

 

Screenshot-x469

Paul: Ah, well, I still look hot, right?

Dunno, can´t see your face.

Screenshot-x471

That´s better. Yep, still hot.

Screenshot-x472

Guess what? It´s a birthday!

Screenshot-x473

 

Screenshot-x474

 

Screenshot-x475a

Hel-lo, there! He certainly grew up well.

Screenshot-x475

A bad picture of his graduation. Those columns make pictures difficult. And it was raining. He made valedictorian, but I forgot what he´s most likely to do in his life.

Screenshot-x477a

Violetta likes her old Paul. Don´t know, why Jaron is looking like that.

Screenshot-x478

Star and Amber have their prom. Joe and Steven go a second time.

Screenshot-x479

Everyone is tired and hungry again.

Screenshot-x480

I thought, Steven wouldn´t make it home.

Screenshot-x481

He does, but he´s late.

Screenshot-x482

I instantly made Violetta let him off the hook, because stupid. I so want to be able to cancel scolding.

21 Acrobatics, aliens and zombies

Screenshot-x441

Jaron has his first gig. At fullmoon, of course.

Screenshot-x442

At least Star has a lot of fun with the zombies.

Screenshot-x443

It wasn´t that bad.

Screenshot-x444

Directly after, Jaron gets abducted by aliens.

Screenshot-x447

House is full, but you never know. DON´T COME BACK PREGNANT!

He didn´t.

Screenshot-x448

In other news, I bought Dragon valley. Which caused my game to lag.

A LOT.

Screenshot-x449

But Paul trying to serenade Violetta is really funny. She just giggles the whole time.

Screenshot-x450

Back to the park in daylight. I don´t like zombies.

Screenshot-x451a

Violetta goes as well. She picks some flowers for old times sake (the family has enough money now).

Screenshot-x452

Then she continues working on her lifetime wish.

Screenshot-x453

 

Screenshot-x455

Those two hang out together a lot. Hands off, Jaron, she´s still a teenager.

Screenshot-x456

A house full of teenagers means, it´s full of blinking traps.

Screenshot-x457

Joe: Whaaaaa….

Calm down. I think, it suits you.

Screenshot-x458

Joe: It´s on my hands!!

Just take another shower.

Screenshot-x459

The siblings together. They really all look very different.

Screenshot-x461

Jaron got promoted and is now using a fancy limo when he goes to the park to perform for tips.

Screenshot-x462

While watching him, I stumbled across this vision of a sim. Her name is Tammi Lancaster-Tanner, making her a descendant from the original families of Lucky Palms. Perhaps the baby of Lina or Lola Lancaster?

WANT!

… She´s married. Newly wed to be precise. Drat.

Screenshot-x463

Okay, so make some beautiful kids? Pretty please?

20 The girls grow up

Screenshot-x418

It´s the girls birthday. They don´t seem very eager to grow up.

(And Violetta is wearing her wedding gown. Ups. Well, it´s a nice one)

Screenshot-x419

Come on, Amber, make a wish!

Amber: Mmmmmh…

Screenshot-x420

Amber: Oh, I know!

Screenshot-x421

 

Screenshot-x422

Amber: I´m gonna look gorgeous!

Screenshot-x423

Amber: Well?

Screenshot-x424

Amber: Hey! Can somebody say something?!

Yes, sweety, gorgeous. She now dislikes children.

Screenshot-x425

It´s Star´s turn.

Screenshot-x426

Star: Um, can you back off a bit, Joe?

Joe: Tooooooooooooot!

Screenshot-x427

Joe: Toooooooooooooooooooot!

Steven: Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Amber: Hahahahaha!

Star: Um….

Screenshot-x428

Joe: Whoa!

Steven: *Derp*

Amber: Shit. She looks better than me.

Screenshot-x429

Amber: I mean… Wheeeeeee, birthday!

Joe: Toooooooooooooot!

Well, certainly not tomboyish anymore. She rolled hopeless romantic, like Violetta.

Screenshot-x430

Said Violetta accepts white roses from an elderly Phoenix Ross.

Screenshot-x431

Right next to her husband, who doesn´t give a hoot and instead continues to speak about cooking. Or gardening? Whatever.

Screenshot-x432

She makes it up to him by serenading him while he eats cake.

Screenshot-x433

So I bought Amber that portable stereo and now she sits around like a zombie with musicnotes coming out of her ears. Don´t know, if that is better.

Screenshot-x434

Nope, no sign of Violetta´s nose.

Screenshot-x435

Star with her new haircut.

Screenshot-x436

And I decided, she needs glasses.

In fact, they both look very much alike, namely face one-ish to me, but I don´t care that much about that. They have totally different personalities anyway.

19 Prom, flowers and a lot of playing

Screenshot-x397

The teens went to prom. Actually I´m not very fond of this event. I mean, shouldn´t there be food at prom?

Screenshot-x398

Most of the time my teens are completly starved, tired and stinky when they emerge. And prom king/queen.

Screenshot-x399

At least Steven wears his suit.

Screenshot-x400

Other people wear whatever they found at the bottom of their wardrobe.

Screenshot-x401

Looking at you, Nathan!

Nathan: What? Got myself a girlfriend!

A romantic interest, to be exact. I have to check her out.

(Joe doesn´t wear his formal, either. He just happens to wear a jackett as his casual)

Screenshot-x402

Star is always playing when left on her own.

Screenshot-x403

Little party animal Amber is always dancing. I bought her a stereo, but her taste in music is not mine.

Screenshot-x404

I have to get her that portable one.

So this is what happened when I clicked on Nathan´s stressed-out moodlet.

Screenshot-x405

He decides to give Joe flowers!

Joe: Huah!

Screenshot-x406

Joe: Um… how about, no?

Screenshot-x407

Nathan is crushed.

Screenshot-x408

Joe: Look, I just don´t feel that way about you. Let´s be friends?

Screenshot-x409

Nathan: Okay.

Both: He´s kinda cute, though.

The whole thing went on autonomous. Really did´t see it coming.

Screenshot-x410

Random naked Jaron.

Jaron: Just coming through.

He does it on purpose. I´m sure of it.

Screenshot-x412

The cats are playing tag.

Screenshot-x413

Amber and Jaron are playing tag.

Screenshot-x416

Studious boys.

Screenshot-x415

And an adorable cat-brushing.

18 Acrobatics and another birthday

Screenshot-x379

Jaron got some really cool props.

Jaron: You looking?

Yes, gorgous. Ahem. Flirty sims.

Screenshot-x380

Jaron: Whoops!

*Holds breath*

Screenshot-x381

Jaron: Hepp!

Screenshot-x382

Can acrobats fail in the sims? Jaron certainly never does.

Screenshot-x383

And he made a special potion!

Screenshot-x384

 

Screenshot-x385

 

Screenshot-x386

Amber: That´s so cool!

Screenshot-x388

Star is brave, a bookworm and a vehicle enthusiast.

Screenshot-x387

Paul: Another kid? I´m cool with that.

Screenshot-x389

I got a tomboyish vibe from her, so I changed her hair to this.

Screenshot-x390

Star got the potion early in the morning and couldn´t go to school that day. I was afraid, she caught Jaron´s bug, but it was only that one day.

Screenshot-x392

So she explores the city a bit. I bought two of these things for the children. Lucky Palms is pretty spread out and it always took them ages to go anywhere.

Screenshot-x391

I love this picture. Can you tell?

Screenshot-x393

Photographed mainly because of cat. Hi, Sybil!

Screenshot-x394

Uhm. I get the popups. But then I forget about them.

So my founder has no party for her adult birthday.

Screenshot-x395

But she doesn´t seem to mind.

Screenshot-x397a

Violetta: Still not bad, huh?

Right you are.

No midlife crisis either.

17 A lot of birthdays

Screenshot-x359

Nathan grew up in the dark on the frontporch. He rolled friendly.

I wanted to take better pictures of him in the morning, but…

Screenshot-x361

This very night he got abducted by aliens and I kinda forgot.

Screenshot-x364

Yes, Nathan, I don´t like him either. Even if he is an alien fashion rebell.

Screenshot-x366

It´s safe to say that Nathan got Violetta´s nose.

Screenshot-x368

Jaron continues to perform. I like this career and its oufits.

Screenshot-x370

Joe has got a lot of friends. This is Cara Rangel.

Screenshot-x371

Paul´s garden comes along nicely (just ignore the weeds). We´ve got life fruit, flame fruit, and he got the opportunity to plant cheese and eggs. I want a sim garden…

Screenshot-x373

Sorry Steven, no more prince playing for you.

Screenshot-x374

What´s with that hair??

Steven: I like it.

Well, I don´t.

Screenshot-x377

He rolled family oriented. So now he´s a grumpy loner who wants a lot of children. Nice.

Actually, his lifetime wish is culinary library. I think he rolled it after a school trip to the diner.

Screenshot-x378

And if Steven has his birthday…

Screenshot-x375

… Joe does, too!

Screenshot-x376

Not bad, but I changed the hair.

But I somehow didn´t take photos of that.

He rolled friendly.

16 Inappropiate flirting and another burglar

Screenshot-x345

Jaron spends most of his time at the park performing. Nathan wanted to visit the summerfestival, so I sent him there and they started rollerskating.

Screenshot-x346

Did I mention, that Lucky Palms is really pretty?

Screenshot-x347

Amber is more interested in dressing up as a princess and pillow fighting with Star.

Screenshot-x348

 

Screenshot-x349

The barn has changed again – from left to right are Violetta and Paul´s bedroom, then it´s Amber´s (and Star´s when she becomes real), Jaron and Nathan´s, Steven and Joe´s. I suck at decorating, but nobody has any routing issues. And nobody seems to make the beds.

Screenshot-x350

Violetta wished to paint a portrait of Paul. This fulfilled the wish, but.. um, Violetta? Can you try again?

Screenshot-x351

Violetta: Not right now. I´m busy flirting.

Screenshot-x352

Sigh. Jaron is flirty and Violetta is a hopeless romantic. This was bound to happen.

Violetta? Your husband, the one you wanted to paint? He´s sitting RIGHT THERE behind the window?

Violetta: *ignores*

Screenshot-x353

Aaand another burglar. Seriously, what´s up with that?

Screenshot-x354

Violetta: Oh, the burglar alarm!

Jaron: Just sitting here.

Amber: Burglar alarm.

Joe: Burgler alarm.

Steven: Just coming through.

Screenshot-x355

Violetta: Oh noes, the drama!

Jaron: *slowly rocking*

Amber: Burglar alarm.

Joe: WOKE ME UP! RAAH!

Steven: What´s up with you guys?

Screenshot-x356

Violetta: *slump*

Screenshot-x357

Paul: Let´s get inside.

Steven: What about mum?

Paul: … She´ll come around.

Perhaps he DID look out of this window.

15 Get real

Warning: this post contains a naked sim-butt.

 

Screenshot-x324

I completly failed to take photos of Jaron´s birthday. Because of his problems with high school I couldn´t roll his trait, but he gained disciplined. Could have been worse. He´s also basicaly a face one, so I gave him a bit more interesting haircolour and tweaked his ears a bit.

Screenshot-x327

He frequently gets hit by the no-clothes-after-shower-bug. I suspect it´s on purpose.

Screenshot-x328

Violetta certainly seems to enjoy it.

Violetta: Niiiiiiiiiiice!

VIOLETTA!

Violetta: What? I´m allowed to look!

Screenshot-x325

She went to the park to work on her LTW. Also for moral support.

Screenshot-x326

Because Jaron starts his acrobat career!

Screenshot-x329

I think, I will have a lot of fun with that.

Screenshot-x331

He´s good!

Screenshot-x332

Even though watching him with all those sharp and flaming objects makes me kind of nervous.

Screenshot-x333

Jaron didn´t manage to find that IF potion, but Steven got the opportunity from the science lab. And we already had the rainbow gem, so…

Screenshot-x334

Joe: For me?

Screenshot-x336

Bottoms up!

Screenshot-x337

Sparkly bubbles!

Screenshot-x338

 

Screenshot-x339

Steven: …this is kinda awkward…

Joe: …yeah…

Screenshot-x340

Steven: Welcome to the real world!

Screenshot-x341

So this is Joe. He can´t stand art, is clumsy and will never get nude.

Screenshot-x342

He has the most amazing eyes.

Screenshot-x343

He´s also beyond cute. Star is in her puppet form, because Amber has an opportunity after school and isn´t home yet.

Screenshot-x344

Joe hugges Star as if to say:

Don´t worry. You´ll get real as well.

14 Cuties

This post consists mainly of photos of my sim children being cute.

Screenshot-x297

Nathan plays peek-a-boo with Amber.

Screenshot-x298

 

Screenshot-x299

He wanted to use the telescope.

Screenshot-x300

Steven grows up in the bathroom.

Screenshot-x301

Yep, cute.

Screenshot-x302

And another burglar. Not cute.

Screenshot-x303

Joe wants to come out. Amber is not impressed.

(I swear, I added ceiling tiles at some point. Not yet, apparantley.)

Amber has an IF, too – I named her Star, because of the pattern on her clothes. Waaaaaay later I realized, I had named a sim Star Dust. Yay, me!

Screenshot-x306

I like IFs. I often take them away from the toddlers, because otherwise they do nothing else, but play with the damned doll. I want them to skill! When they have nothing else to do, they get them back.

Screenshot-x307

Pillow fight!

Screenshot-x308

What is wrong with this picture?

What´s wrong with this picture is, that´s NOTHING wrong with it. Steven asked autonomously for a bedtime story. That is actually his own bed, his MUM is reading an children-appropriate book to him, and…

Screenshot-x309

… he even fell asleep. That has to be a first for me, since I got Generations.

Screenshot-x311

In her freetime Violetta writes romantic novels. She´s getting pretty good at it!

Screenshot-x311a

Don´t know, where we got the special egg. Someone had it in his or her inventory after a family outing at spring festival.

Screenshot-x312

Jaron still can´t go to school, so I occupy him otherwise. Find me that IF potion!

Screenshot-x315

Amber eats Mr. Green.

Screenshot-x316

Or maybe not.

Screenshot-x317

I clicked on Stevens stressed out moodlet, after he came home from school.

Screenshot-x318

Instead of playing with Joe, he cuddles with his teddy. I found that interesting.

Screenshot-x319

Brushing the cat, because cute.

Screenshot-x320

Nathan must have spend half of his childhood in that costume. Whenever I search for him, he is somewhere and presides over the royal court. But he finds time to feed his baby sister.

Screenshot-x321

Jaron graduates, despite never going to high school. His grades were naturally pretty bad, and I forgot what he was most likely to do in his life.

His lifetime wish is to become an acrobat, by the way. I´m pretty excited by that, because I´ve never done that before.

Screenshot-x322

Amber grows up!

Screenshot-x323

That´s not bad for a random outfit. I changed it anyway.

Screenshot-x324a

And Star comes out to play! I actually have two rainbow gems, Violetta found one in France, and one somewhere in Lucky Palms, but I want to wait if Jaron finds the IF metamorphium potion – no need to waste those gems then…

13 Wedding

Screenshot-x281

The day has finally come: Violetta is marrying her frog!

My sister pointed out, that a hydrophobic frog is hilarious. I think, that´s right, IF Paul was a frog who got transformed into a sim. BUT if he was a sim who got transformed into a frog (by an evil witch or something), and got rescued by Violetta´s kiss, then I think, beeing hydrophobic makes a lot of sense. I wonder, if all sims out of the wishing well have this trait?

Screenshot-x284

I placed both the wedding arch and the cake not very well, so I had a lot of trouble with the photos.

Screenshot-x286

But they are adorable anyway.

Screenshot-x287

 

Screenshot-x288

 

Screenshot-x290

And some of the guests even sat down!

Screenshot-x291

 

Screenshot-x292

Violetta: That´s not the cake I ordered!

Paul: But it looks… nice?

Screenshot-x293

Violetta: Ah, well, I guess you are right!

Screenshot-x294

Everyone had a good time.

Screenshot-x296

Especially this guy, who glitched out and was still clapping long after all the others had gone. I had to reset him.
