Um, now I know I need a life outside of Sims 3. When I got to the part about Indigo dying, I gasped out loud: "Indigo died!" So my son comes running and he's like "Who died mom?" Yeah, the day I get worked up over a sim dying is the day I need a break ;D

I feel so bad about her dying. The way you write the story gives us an intimate view of the Dreamweavers' life and so we all get caught in your web... RIP The Girl That Did Not Live :)

My eyes got misty, so if you need a break I do too! It's so sad when they die!

My condolences.

Thanks everyone.  Indigo was a favorite and would have been my choice for the immortal heir if I could have chosen.  But Nectarine was the first born, so Indigo was destined to die.  She had a good life, though.  She made it to 91 days and they were all good ones for her.  She did everything she wanted to do and was highly successful.

I've put off Kenny's death by sending him to France with Nectarine, Periwinkle, and Oliver.  Periwinkle is very close to achieving her Lifetime Wish of Rennaissance Sim.  Once she finishes the last Charisma book, she'll be done.  Her 3 skills for the LTW are Cooking, Sculpting, and Charisma.  After she wraps it up, she'll get back to sculpting so that she can get it SuperMaxed.  They have 21 days in France, so there's a good chance she'll get it done there.  I won't sell any of her sculptures until she gets back home because otherwise they won't count toward her Sculptor profession.  She's at level 8 right now.

Just wondering, Pam, with the color names (Banana, Indigo, ect) and the fact that your sims are dressed in that color, how to you find out their fave color when they born, so you know what to name them?

I'm not using their favorite colors.  I just pick a color I like and want to use.  The list of color names and hex codes that I'm using can be found here.

Dear Pam,

How do the hex codes work?  What are the three numbers for Banana and how did you get them from the hex codes chart you linked to.

Sorry if it's obvious and I missed it!

Cheers eucalpyt

By three numbers, do you mean the Red, Blue, and Green codes?  I don't have to use those because there's a spot for just the hex code when I'm recoloring the clothes for everyone.

Thaks Pam, that was helpful. Do you know if there are any benefits to using your sim's favorite color?

Thaks Pam, that was helpful. Do you know if there are any benfits to youing you sims fave color?

There was talk when Sims 3 first came out that if you put their favorite colors in the furnishings around them that they would get a boost to their mood.  However, I've never been able to prove it.  We have a thread where you can read more about it.

Oh no!  I really am not cut out for this kind of thing.  Now I'm all teary eyed over a Sim who isn't even one of my own!  Sweet rest pretty Indigo.  We are all going to miss you.

Poor Indigo, I was expecting her to live longer :(

Banana is cute, gentle little blond! But her name, hehehe it's funny, maybe more since it rimes with my name and kids used to tease me about it :D

That's fantastic, Pam! How did you get Oliver to do that?

He had a bear in his inventory that he bought in Egypt.  Click the bear and select "Talk Through" and then choose the name of the Sim to talk to.  You can only talk to toddlers, children, and Sims with the Childish trait.

Yes.  Well, any bear.  I have the regular teddy bear, the valentine's bear, the mummy bear, and the panda bear.  I don't know of any other stuffed animals in the game.

I think the rabbit is really the Valentine's bear.  He's wearing a rabbit suit.

And was that Elvis in the background? ;D

Probably.  All the radios are playing a different song and they overlap each other, but I'm sure Elvis was in there.

Yep, I checked. The rabbit is a bear. I never had these in inventory before, so I had no idea they were playable this way. Fun!

The trip to Champs Les Sims was rather uneventful with the typical skilling and collecting, except for Oliver's new car.



Little Banana's museum room is off to a good start with her toddler portrait, photograph, and ice sculpture.



Periwinkle's room is also coming along nicely with the addition of her Adult pieces.  She, Chartreuse, and Oliver all aged up on the same day.



I didn't push Banana to max out the xylophone or peg box.  Nor did I do the toddler books with her.  She will have Nectar Making as her SuperMax skill and I decided that there's no need for her to get a bump on other skills.  Hopefully, it will mean less chance that she will accidently max out an already SuperMaxed skill.  I've already had to lock Nectarine out of the balcony where the sculpting tables are located because she keeps sneaking in there to sculpt.  She's gotten to level 3 completely on her own!  So, I put her easel in her locked workout room for when she wants to paint and the balcony is off limits for her.

All too soon, it was time for Banana's birthday party.  Here she is strutting in her party dress.



Mommy Periwinkle helped her blow out the candles.



I think she looks a lot like her mother except with blonde hair.  The thin mouth is becoming more pronounced as she gets older.



On the night of Banana's birthday party while everyone was settling into bed, Kenny got up out of bed in the middle of the night as he had done all his life.  He could never sleep the entire night as he was a light sleeper.  This time, however, was his last time.



His family rushed to his room, but could only watch helplessly as Grim made his appearance.



Kenny didn't want to go, but his fate has long since been sealed.



Little Banana didn't want her Grandad to go, either.  She will find out soon enough that her fate, too, is sealed.



Rest in Peace, Kenny Dreamweaver
