100 Babies of Grace, Merry.20

We start off with a Merry that needs to tone up.  Or she might get some special ice cream.  It will depend on how much time she has to spend bending and flexing.

Hawaii is on the treadmill working on the Get Fit badge.  She has that and the Arts and Crafts badge remaining – and she still needs to get an A in school.

Helsinki is out trying to start a fire on the grill as she works on the Outdoor Adventurer badge.

Success!  We have a fire!  I will be glad when winter is over and they can get this badge by fishing.

Windsor is still finishing up his creative aspiration.  He has maxed out creativity and is drawing the five different drawings – if his sisters would quit setting the grill on fire, he might finish.

Oh, I got the picture gallery back up – for now it is in the dining room.  At some point, I will probably move it out to a separate building and make it an actual gallery type building.  One thing to note:  Time is moving along for the kids that have moved out – Tahiti and Denali are now elders 🙁

Wales is working on his 2/3 child friend and Kenya inserts herself into the conversation.  She is actually ready for her birthday cake, but today is Winterfest so I thought I would let her experience it as a toddler and grow up at the end of the day.  So she is on free will and doing as she pleases.

Helsinki has finished trying to burn the house down and now only has to do the fitness and art badges with Hawaii.

Merry is making a Ham dinner for the Grand Meal today.  Wales shooed Kenya away so she is watching Merry cook.  Clingy toddlers need so much attention.  Clingy + toddlers = so much redundancy there.  I don’t know why everyone is still wearing their cold weather clothes.  The climate control is heating the house.

Kenya is the only member of the family that cares about eating the meal, so she grabs a plate and the rest of the meal is put in the fridge for leftovers.  By the time she gets back to the place Wales was sitting, he is gone, so she sits there alone eating.

After she eats, she gets a sixth sense that there is something – a surprise maybe – in Merry’s room, so she heads off to see what is in there.  She is ANGRY to find a new baby.  And Wolfgang.  She immediate queues up the action to HIT him and she does it – before I can stop her.  POWWW!  (I was shocked – I have seen them get the want but have never seen it pop up as an immediate action that they have acted on before).

Merry was right behind her (coming to change Utah – a boy, by the way), so I figured Merry could dole out the punishment accordingly.

But Wolfgang can take care of himself.  He asked Kenya a question – I couldn’t tell what, but I had a suspicion when she started smiling.

Then she answered his question…

And when he responded to her, she collapsed – he Crushed her Dreams!

And it made him HAPPY!  He is still a stranger to her – and the only thing she knows about him is that he is MEAN.

And, then Merry comes in and scolds her for hitting him.  And Kenya is really mad now.  Life isn’t fair!

Merry wishes Wolfgang Merry Winterfest ??

I told you I was going to start giving these girls drugs.  This is a fun drink.  Merry has a small stash, not much but a few of them.

Kenya is shooed out of the room so Merry and Wolfgang can have a Merry “Merry” Winterfest ?

Outside, Wales is still trying to get 2/3 completed so that he can get permission to open presents.  Yes, I am a taskmaster.  Priorities.

Kenya puts on her Christmas dress and then heads outside to play on the playground.

She is called back inside where she sees the pile of presents.

Merry asks her if she has been good or bad…

She thinks about it…

If you look at Merry’s face it really looks like she is waiting for Kenya to think about how she has been acting.

She gets sad.

And here Merry looks like, yeah I told you to be good or you wouldn’t get anything for Winterfest.

No presents for bad girls.

No sympathy at all on Merry’s face.

While the family is getting ready to open presents, Wolfgang is taking care of Utah for Merry.  It took him three attempts to figure out what was wrong, but he eventually got it right.

The family has gathered and is ready for the madness.

And it really is madness.  I try to take pictures but never do a good job.  I missed Merry opening her first gift because one or two of the kids decided to walk in front of her at the moment she opened.  Each kid opened a present, then sneaked a present, then asked Father Winter for a present, then opened another present.  And I still only took one picture of each.

I did catch Wolfgang looking at the family portrait and then he “left” and we didn’t see him again during the holiday.

Father Winter came in by the fireplace, walked outside to the mailbox to hohoho, and then back inside to pass out presents.

Kenya got up and talked to him and was able to ask for a present.  She was sleepy, though, so she went back to bed as soon as she could.

She is finally getting her birthday cake.

Kenya grew up with Art Lover and the mental aspiration.

Merry helps Wales with his homework.  His performance is extremely low – Windsor has an A and Wales is still Average as a B.  Someone has seriously been slacking at school.

I believe Wales has completed his social aspiration with 3/3 friends right here.  Now he just has to get his school grades up to A so he and Windsor can have their birthday cake.

Nope, he is still working on it – he had to go to school to get his A, so he didn’t get finished. Yet.

Helsinki had an A, so she stayed home with Utah while Merry went hunting for baby daddies.  Kenya also was home because of when she had her cake – she didn’t have to go to school.  They played a game of chess to begin working on Kenya’s aspiration.  Kenya is cheating.

Merry tried the enchanting introduction on the first sim she is adding to her list of potentials.  Fletcher Straud.  I had put him off because I thought he was a vampire.  Straud – seemed a reasonable assumption.  But now I am not so sure.

He was enchanted but didn’t want to progress the relationship right then.  Vlad was in the other room.  She will invite him over for the progression.

Several of the houses, the residents were at work or school.  Yes, some of her targets are still teens.  I am working through the alphabet and I need specific letters, and that means she is waiting for some teens to grow up.  I am trying to stay away from her kids spouses – but they will be last resorts.  Even though one of her daughters has married one of the baby daddies – Beijing married Normandy/Niagara’s father after the conception.  I would rather it go in that direction rather than Merry hooking up with her son-in-law.  Anyways, this is her grandson – Braxton Grace.  He is Rushmore’s son with Martha Richards.

Merry has also attempted not to prey on the elderly.  But she needs “P” and her choices are between two teens that are step-sons of her kids and one elder who isn’t related.  So, she heads over to meet the elder – Pierce Delgato.  I don’t know what pissed her off, but she introduced herself and then ripped him up.

Then she went upstairs and changed the baby’s diaper (Jesse Delgato).

Then she fed him.  And by that time the rest of the family was home, so she went home.

At home, Hawaii has completed her badges, and is now a Llamacorn scout with an A in high school.  And she smiles.

Merry invites Pierce over – he is the next baby daddy – as an elder he jumps to the top of the list.

Despite being chewed out (or maybe because), they quickly get to the good stuff.

Wales is still working on 3/3 with Aniyah Pancakes (had to look up her name) and they are amused by the sounds coming from the closet.

But they are not distracted and he finally completes his social aspiration.  Wales and Windsor are ready for their birthday cakes.

Merry confirms she is pregnant, just-friends Pierce and gets his picture for the wall and then sends him home.  Then she finds Wolfgang and cheers him up.

It doesn’t take much, just a kiss and he is all flirty.  Merry is already as big as a house.  She is spreading faster with each pregnancy now.

While Merry and Wolfgang are getting cozy, Helsinki is finishing up her last badge and earning her promotion to Llamacorn scout.  Hawaii and Helsinki have now earned their birthday cake.

Everyone is getting a cake – or rather, they are all sharing the same cake:

Hawaii Grace

  • Mean, Jealous, Perfectionist
  • Gregarious (Popularity aspiration)
  • Responsible (character value)
  • Happy Toddler (level 3 all skills)
  • Socially Gifted (childhood aspiration)
  • Scouting Aptitude (scouting career)
  • Heat Acclimation, Cold Acclimation, Waterproof, Observant
    • A in both elementary school and high school

Helsinki Grace

  • Perfectionist, Mean, Vegetarian
  • High Metabolism (Athletic aspiration)
  • Responsible (character value)
  • Happy Toddler (level 3 all skills)
  • Physically Gifted (childhood aspiration)
  • Scouting Aptitude (scouting career)
  • Heat Acclimation, Cold Acclimation, Waterproof, Gym Rat
    • A in both elementary school and high school

They cut into the cake after Hawaii blew out the candles but before Helsinki could get to the cake.  Also about this point I realized the birthdays were a little early – 8 days to age up for the girls and 7 days to age up for the boys (the plan was at 6 days to age up for both children and teens), and I decided what the hell – they earned it.  They completed the grades and the scouting requirements, the age requirements got fudged a little bit. 🙂

Windsor becomes a teen, adding Jealous to Music Lover.  He rolls The Curator.  These pictures are pre-makeover, but I will leave their hair and just adjust their clothes so the appearance is accurate.

Wales becomes a teen, adding Hot-Headed to Mean.  He rolls Mansion Baron.

Utah grows into a Wild toddler.

With the birthdays taken care of, it is time to move Hawaii and Helsinki out of the house – Bye-bye!

I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
