Oh yay I'm so excited that we're getting updates again! I was sick today and so I read the whole story from the beginning. By the time I'd finished, I was feeling a lot better  :)

I'm so happy you feel that way. I love my crazy grandma's and I'm happy some other people do too.

Hahaha! The grandmas never cease to amuse me with their goofy antics. They are way too much fun!

Thanks for all your kind comments. My new plan is to get this done before Christmas, hopefully I'll get at least a chapter up by the end of the weekend.

Chapter 202: Spooky day
« Reply #656 on: December 14, 2012, 03:24:48 PM »
Spooky day had finally arrived. I was psyched about my first costume party and everyone was busy getting things in order before the guests arrived, well, almost everybody...

Selma: Cia! Get your but in gear, and stop watching TV!
Cia: What? Why do we need more Jack-o-lanterns?
Selma: For that spooky feeling of course. Now stop dragging your feet.



Cia: *mutters* Never a moment of peace, and this sculpting thing is stupid anyway...


I don't know what got into grandma C, I think it's cool. Just look at the one I've already made.


And now it's costume time. Can you guess who's who?


Grandma K set up a wicked party area out back, too bad it started to rain...


Luckily it was just a slight shower. One who wasn't so lucky was the Dwayne, he won worst/best costume. I think mom was happy dad had something more stylish on.


Eeep! What is that? Is grandma S slow dancing with one of the guys who always asks me out on dates? What would grandpa Rikard say? I kept my eyes open, but I didn't spy any questionable behavior. Good! Or his ghost would be very unhappy.


I spent most of the party bobbing for apples. Next time I've got to pick another kind of costume, I suspect the mask was the reason I didn't win. 


Grandma J used most of the party to carve even more pumpkins.


Grandma E just wanted to race around on her skates like an energizer bunny.


The party lasted well into the night, and as the last guest was leaving we all gathered around the bars, to get some snacks and rate everyone costumes.


I know you think I've been on hiatus for a while, but quite frankly, old people need a lot of rest (and I do too).

So, that's what we did the next day, and the day after, and the day after that too. Oh, wait! I need to get my LTW done and max out my career...Oh well, there's always tomorrow. Just a few more minutes to snooze.

Naughty Selma! But if it was just slow dancing I suppose that was okay but I still didn't like it because Rikard was one of my favourite spouses/characters in this dynasty.

I just love that picture at the end. And it looks like Beata has no problem with napping with the grandmas!

It was a little lazy of Greta to wear her work uniform as a costume, don't you think?  :P  I absolutely adore that last picture of everyone napping on their rockers together. It's practically Hall of Fame worthy.

Amazing story AND your nearly finished! Going back a while, where did you find Beata's child outfit pattern? I don't believe I've seen it before.

It's from the exchange. I'd have to check on my simming computer for the name.

It's my favorite too. I only wish there was a way to designate rocking chairs like you can designate beds.

I'm really impressed by the picture of them in their rockers -- I just now noticed that their robes match their rockers. Good luck with finishing!

Saltpastillen, when you finish your dynasty (which won't be long by the looks of things), could you upload the house to the swap shop or exchange? It's such an awesome house and I would love for my sims to live in it.

I can do that. I'll probably swap out a few patterns, or maybe make a non-store item version too. I'm happy you think the house is great. It's fun to play in.

Welcome to our party, if the bad guys don't get you then my grandmas will...


Once we woke up from our nap we decided that everything is better in costumes, and the grandmas spent a couple of afternoons entertaining the neighborhood this way. Doctor's and hot dog's were this autumns biggest hits.


We took every opportunity to enjoy the outdoor activities that would soon become impossible to do because of the snow.


Grandma K had a lot of bbq's in her new chef's uniform.


And grandma C showed how to rock - bunny style.


The grandmas also used their free time to prepare for the winter season highlight - skating.


Some with more limited success than others.


Soon dressing up was as natural as getting in your regular clothes, and we often forgot to change out of them when the party ended.


But for the seasons last fishing competition we didn't bother dressing up, why bother when we'd just get water and scales all over ourselves?


Enough about us, it's time to interact with the real world again. I do have a job to go to some time soon.

Hm, maybe I should check if we have any mail, it's been a couple of days...

278 packages?!

I guess we have to check every day from now on, these mailboxes are pure magic...



_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you for waiting so patiently everyone. I had planned on updating earlier, but the holidays and wonderful weather for outdoor activities happened.

This chapter is mostly a collection of screenshots I really like but didn't really have a story for, since there isn't much happening right now. At this point Beata is 9 days till elder and the game crashes every 30 minutes, so I'm working hard on saving, saving, saving. In retrospect choosing to play a stylist this late in the dynasty is not a good thing for my computer, since all the makeovers is one of the reasons the game crashes a lot.

I promise more interesting things are to come...
