Thanks Simstar, Phyre, and Chronic!

@ Phyre: I named the nooboo Gnome Nooboo Eins (One) because s/he is my first nooboo Gnome. I was considering continuing on with my numbering scheme but then thought I'll probably get more adult Gnomes while fishing or at the consignment shop. This way I know how many Gnomes entered my lot as adults, and how many were born here as nooboos. Also, s/he is so cute s/he deserved her/his own name!

@ Chronic: I hate all these bugs too, I think Generations has been the worst of all the EPs so far, making me really rethink buying Pets this fall! I love Fyve's maternity outfit too; I had to try out the new Generations maternity compatible outfits and then found that Generations pattern for her top. It looks great in shades of pink!

Fyve had a bit of a mid-life crisis. I think I satisfied 3 wishes for her so her post-crisis moodlet isn't as powerful as it could have been. She got to Plan an Outfit, Flirt with some random dude, and Buy an Expensive Car (I finally bought Fhore her Immortal Wheels). That's what the wrinkle freak-out was all about.

Aww, nooboo gnome, how cute! You're right, I couldn't get enough of one of those little guys if he were roaming around my lot!

Welcome nooboo Sciks! *Confetti!* Nothing will help you get over a batch of glitches like a perfect little baby Sim  :D

Yes, he does. Lily kept trying for a girl, but since she can't control Sandi to make her eat watermelons it's all in the game's RNG (Random Number Generator). And the RNG keeps rolling boys for Franklin and Sandi.

The baby gnomes are so sweet! I've never seen mine lay down like that! That's priceless! Welcome Sciks and Nikolas! Invite Sandi over, make 10 batches of watermelon pancakes and try to make her eat all of them lol.

Thanks for reading everybody!

@ Juxt: Nooboos can fix anything, they're like Duct Tape for TS3!

@ Simstar: Phyre is correct. Franklin and Sandi have all boys, 5 of them now. Thanks Phyre for answering her question.

@ Esther: I kept meaning to gift Sandi a bunch of watermelons (since we can do that now) but I kept forgetting.

Oh wow, I'm loving all the nooboos!!!  I think the gnome gnooboo is just the sweetest little thing - I can't wait to get some gnomes gnow!

Welcome little Sciks!  I'm glad Patrick has finally finished sowing his oats.  If Fyve is willing to overlook whatever the strut was about, who am I to hold it against him!

Fyve: Week 31

So I get the entire week off as maternity leave! When you only work 4 days per week and you get a 4-day mat leave the result is no work for an entire week! Super awesome if you ask me. I go back to work on Monday and my adorable little Sciks becomes a child on Tuesday. I get to be home for almost the entirety of his toddler stage! Can you tell I'm excited about this?!

Now that we have the addition of Generations, my Logic skill journal has a new requirement before it's considered superMaxed. I have to discover all 10 potions, so I buy my Chemistry Table and get to work. I figure, since I still have loads of time before I become an Elder, and it's going to bug me if I don't make an effort to get this done, I might as well. Also, I have the entire week off as mat leave! Did I mention that already? I think I look very science-y and focused!



Uncle Franklin spends his evenings and days off teaching his teenage sons to drive. Lenny got his permit last week, this week it's Mitchell's turn. Should a man with his appointment with the Grim scheduled for this Saturday really be teaching a teen to drive? I can't believe that it's doing anything good for his nerves and heart!



Patrick has a client at the park one day and he runs into Uncle Franklin's Lenny (teen) and Nikolas (toddler). It's nice to see a teenager willing to take his little brother to the park for the afternoon.



Tuesday brings Sciks' toddler birthday so I invite everyone out for another pool party! These parties are so much fun! I blow out the candles for my little man.



Then, while everyone has cake and dives back into the pool, I help him ride on the little pirate ship I put in just for this occasion! Isn't he the cutest little guy you've ever seen?! But wait, you don't even know about the best part, but that's for later.



Great Grandma Therie does the honours of wheeling the little man home in our brand new stroller, designed with his favorite colour, Spice Brown. The Gnomes must have caught wind of the birthday party happening and decide to welcome the birthday boy home with a grand party of their own. Sciks looks a little unsure of the Gnomes.



Here is my little man after the necessary trips to the dresser and mirror. Can you see the most awesome part of this gorgeous little boy?!



It's late and this mommy is plum tuckered out so Grandma Fhore gets the honours of putting Sciks to bed. I'll see you in the morning, my beautiful boy.



Whenever he gets a few minutes alone, Sciks likes to play with his little doll toy thing we got in the mail for him. We named her Lola and they are so adorable together.



I get the time-honoured tradition of potty training my son. He is so smart it only takes just over 2 tries and he's got The Throne mastered! *Puffs out chest in pride*



I also get the joy of teaching my son to talk. The elders in this house are very good at leaving the toddler training to the parents of said toddler. When I asked Mom if she wanted to take care of this one she said she had the joy of teaching me my first words and she couldn't take that away from me. So, after wiping away a tear, I find myself on the floor in front of my son talking about ... garbage, really?! It scares me that he's this excited over garbage.



Here is an update picture on Uncle Franklin's son Marty, with his girlfriend Haeju, whom I missed last week, plus Aunt Sandi. Marty and Haeju aged into gorgeous YAs last week and were difficult to track down but I manage to catch them this week, while Aunt Sandi has her Elder birthday this week. Here are all three of them in their new duds courtesy of Patrick.



Enjoying my time off immensely, I take Sciks out for a stroll one night. I head for the gym where Patrick's band is playing tonight but I turn back after walking for an hour doesn't even get me halfway there. It's a much longer walk than I thought! Instead, I tuck little Sciks in for the night and call it a night myself. We'll just have to catch Patrick's band some other night.



Since our household is full again, and Grandpa Wunn is getting tired of mining every night, today he decides to try out another find from the Consignment Shop that's been sitting in our family storage for weeks! Wunn heads down memory lane with a trip to the past.



I guess they didn't appreciate his intrusion because they kicked him out after a couple hours. Maybe we'll stick to mining, Grandpa Wunn?



Patrick rolls the wish to teach our young son to walk when Sciks ages up, and even takes a couple days off work (although he can't help but do a makeover or two when he's out and about) to spend time with Sciks and teach him the fine points of bipedal locomotion.



One of those makeovers done while taking time off finally promotes Patrick to level 10 Stylist!



This is for all you Gnome nooboo lovers out there! Nooboo Eins ages up this week and now prefers to be an airplane when amongst the adult Gnomes.



Note: Uncle Franklin's appointment with the Grim came and went Saturday without a sign from the Grim. Lets see how long the Grim forgets about this appointment.

Next Week: Sciks becomes a Child, Patrick becomes an Elder, but does Franklin become a Ghost?

~~~~~

Sorry for the lack of story telling in this update, I've been absolutely exhausted for the past 3 weeks and today is no different. Patrick's story has to wait a little longer because he's a little bugged at the moment. With him active, there are 2 Sims I can't click on to interact with them, Fyve is one of them. At least with her I can just have her initiate the interactions Patrick rolls the wishes for but I can't do that with the townie Sim. Argh! I've cleaned out all my caches so hopefully he'll be fixed next time I play.

Haeju is Marty's girlfriend, Marty is Franklin's oldest son. Franklin is Therie's son and Fhore's half-brother and Fyve's Uncle.

Sorry, I should have restated Haeju and Marty's relationship, I guess I'm more exhausted than I thought. I'll make the edit.

Thanks for reading Simstar and TallStar. :D

You won't believe me... but even after rereading the story three times I have just figured out who is Patrick after all. ;D

I am sorry to hear about the glitch, that bites. Sciks is the cutest male toddler I've ever seen! He is adorable, especially when surrounded by gnomes. Oh, and Eins is still amazing! I totally love Generations, it rocks.

Awesome update, Lily, and best of luck with the glitches. :)

Happy Birthday baby Sciks!  You can tell that he's Fyve's son without a doubt in that makeover picture. 

Here's to hoping that Uncle Franklin has grandnooboos!

Thanks for the comments Pally, Chronic, and Rica!

My favorite thing about little Sciks you can't really see in any of his pictures in this update. I'll try my best to remember, next time I get a chance to play, to get a good picture so you all can see why he's my new favorite Sunburst! Other than cuteness, of course.

I didn't notice all the Gnomes had gathered by the front entrance like that until I followed Therie and Sciks home. Of course, it begged for a picture!

Well, I'm off for my first day of work! I'm super excited and nervous, mostly nervous about making it through an 8hr day without a nap. Here's hoping for lots of sit down time.

I hope your first day of work was a success Lily!

Despite exhaustion, I still think that was a great update! Sciks is so absolutely adorable! He looks a lot like Patrick at this point, I'm curious to see if it'll stay like that!

A big yay from Grim missing his appointment with Franklin, if any sim ever deserved more time it's him!

Oh, and I almost forgot: Happy Birthday to Eins. I love it how they also age up in more than one life stage.

*Finds her story thread shoved behind all the wonderful new stories and dusts it off.*

Hello everyone. It's not that I'm not playing the Sunbursts, it's that I play them for an entire week before updating and three of them rolled wishes for China again so that's where they currently are. Between working again (only part-time though, YAY!) and being exhausted by 2pm I don't get a lot of Simming in during a week. Also, we've spent more days away from home than home in August so that means no Simming. But I'm back at home, I feel less exhausted these days, and now I need to get the Sunbursts home from China so I can update the game (fingers all crossed!) in order to finish my Wishmaster challenge.

All of that to say that there will be updates shortly (this week sometime), so if anyone needs to run to the grocery store for tea, cookies, veggies, whatever, now would be a good time. :D  See you in a few.

So glad the Sunbursts haven't forgotten about us. I look forward to an update but take care of yourself Lilly I remember all too well how tiring being pregnant is. Its not as tiring as having a nooboo about the house but still tiring. But well you will find that out for yourself.

[This is a long update, I aplogize in advance.]

Fyve: Week 32

The week has all kinds of celebrations! First, my Patrick is recognized by the Twinbrook City Council for his excellent work as a Stylist and is awarded the Key to the City by the mayor herself. I'm so proud of my man, he has put in so many hours, long days and even some evenings, re-educating the citizens of Twinbrook on fashion faux pas, and what actually qualifies as a coordinating outfit.



I guess the overalls guy got missed somehow, or he's a recent transplant from Riverview. Patrick will get to him soon enough.

Patrick spends the evening celebrating his new trophy with all of us as a family and tops the night off jamming with his band into the wee hours of the night, after we family members have all gone home to bed.



Patrick spends so many nights out with the band that I don't even wake up anymore when he comes home to bed. Sleep is wonderful!

The next day is my little man's birthday, I can't believe he'll be going to school tomorrow! Grandma Therie gets Sciks up and ready for his big day, starting with some snuggles and giggles.



[This picture is mostly to show off the awesomeness that is Sim genetics and generation Sciks. He has Wunn's purple eyes! Sciks is the first offspring to gets those eyes. I'm super happy!]

I organize another pool party because they are awesome and who doesn't like a little splashing in the water after cake? I bring my precious, growing-up-way-too-fast handsome little man over to blow out the candles on his cake.



Awww, look at him all sweet and ... little. *Sigh* I guess I don't actually want him to stay a toddler forever, but just one more day?



Sciks eats his cake with Dad and Grandpa Wunn. All the extended family and a few friends made it out for the big day, my pool parties are always a big hit with every age group!



After cake, he tries out the child friendly activities the adults have been enjoying at each party since I upgraded the pool. First the pirate ship:



And then the hopscotch court. This one wasn't as much fun for him until he got the hang of the game, but he had to lose to a few elders first!



Then, making his birthday absolutely perfect, his dad comes home with us (instead of playing with his band) and reads him a bedtime story, although I'm sure the choice of "story" was Patrick's.



The next morning, before getting ready for his first day of school, Sciks is sent into Grandpa Wunn's walk-in closet for the traditional outfit and hairstyle changes. His favorite colour is Spice Brown (in case you couldn't tell by the colour of his room).



Then, he's out the door at a run heading for the bus that will introduce him to the joys and trials of learning and friendships. The gnomes gather to wave him off on his new grand adventure.



Patrick and I decide to have dessert after breakfast today. In our defense, someone has to try out the way-up-off-the-ground new toy we bought for our child, it's considered good parenting to make sure all toys are safe before you give them to your kids.



Grandpa Wunn spends the day in the past and comes back with a crazy new outfit and hairstyle. It works well for fishing.



Then, it's my Patrick's elder birthday. He managed to escape the mid-life crisis that plagued me when I became an adult so we'll see if his age catches up to him now.





He's still hot in my opinion, and it's the only opinion that matters to him. (He tells me so just before we celebrate his birthday just the two of us.)

Outside, a celebration of a different sort is about to begin. At age 94, Uncle Franklin meets the Grim.







R.I.P. Franklin Sunburst, age 94
Son, Grandson, Uncle, Friend, Father, and Fiance
He leaves behind his mother, niece, extended family, fiancee Sandi, and 5 sons: Marty, Jarod, Lenny, Mitchell, and Nikolas (sadly, no grandchildren)
He joins in the afterlife his father Wilbur, and grandparents

~~~~~

Sciks enjoys his new tree house and even has a sleepover by himself in there one night.



Possibly stirred by the recently activity of the Grim, my dad Ernesto comes out for some fun on the trampoline, he's just glowing white tonight.



[I've kept his urn around in response to Chronic's comment regarding Ernesto's red glow at the time of his death, it made me wonder if he would glow red as a ghost. Well, not tonight.]

The family welcomes a new nooboo gnome. Nooboo Eins would like to introduce Nooboo Zwei, he likes to chew on his toes.



Meanwhile, the other gnomes have gathered by the garden. [I can't remember his name it's been too long since I took this picture.] Elder gnome whatshisname is giving a late night lesson on cane golf. Some of the other elder gnomes seem interested at the new function of their canes while others seem to be napping on their feet.



[All but 1 or 2 of my adult gnomes aged up to elder in 2 days, see there's one adult gnome in the picture. I guess when you have 9 gnomes in inventory when you install Generations, they're all the same "age".]

Sciks gets home from his after school ballet class and shows of his new (only) move to Lola. He looks a little worried that's it's not as impressive as he thinks; he says Lola just walked away instead of getting excited about this new skill of his.



Then, he heads off to do his homework in the solitude of the playhouse. He says he likes the quiet.



Tonight, Uncle Franklin comes out to see if the perks of being a ghost really are all they're cracked up to be. I think he likes the peace and quiet of the night more than anything, and not having to share the TV remote.



Saturday morning is a flurry of activity as everyone gets ready for a trip to China.

Up Next: Sunburst 7 in China.
