Very fun story, I love the progression of the shack, and the Sims, from a horrifying sight, into a successful household.

I hope Pippa and Max get together, if anyone deserves a happy romance, it's Pippa for the way she jumped into turning her life around.

Chapter 29:  Week 9:  Sebastian, Monday - Tuesday

Sebastian catches his flight to Barnacle Bay and goes to meet Morgan Inkbeard.



They have a  lively and lengthy discussion.  Among other things, Morgan is very interested in Sebastian's cooking expertise.



Sebastian takes time to tour Barnacle Bay and do a bit of shopping.



He returns home Tuesday afternoon while the children are doing their homework.



Everyone crowds around him and Sebastian says:  Morgan insisted I keep the expense money he sent.  I tried to return it but he said I should use it to buy presents for you all, so I did.  New t-shirts for everyone!  These are very popular in Barnacle Bay.  They're the latest designs, from the top designers.  I also found a cobbler and got my shoes repaired.  (to Pippa) I thought you might be ready to replace that old skirt too.  I hope you like your presents!

Gordon, left, and Gregory, right, run over to the Consignment store to show off their new clothes.



Here's a shot of everyone after dinner in their new outfits. 



Thanks to Gheez for the great t-shirt designs!

Ratchie, once again the Voice was right about new clothes being on the way.  It's a bit spooky how you always seem to know what I'm planning ...

The shirts are all items from the store or the expansion packs I have, with Gheez's t-shirt patterns on them.  I think they look great!

The Voice sees all and knows all  ;D

I think it might be a case of great minds think alike.

I can't wait to see what the Riches get up to next.

Pippa arrives home from work to a very strange sight.  Sebastian and Mr Payne are sitting at a table polishing off a bottle of nectar, surrounded by -



Pippa:  Rabbits?!  What are all these rabbits doing here?
Sebastian:  We've been helping them pack their baskets.  It's almost Easter, you know!
Pippa:  Some people have imaginary friends.  My brother has rabbits and a lawyer.  Hand me a glass of nectar - I need it after coming home to this!

(singing)  Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin' down the bunny trail!  Hippity-hoppin', Easter's on its way!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Didn't Sebastian say they just dropped in?  ;)  Personally, I think they're friends of Mr Payne's.

They're from the Sims3 Store, "Year of the Rabbit" Collection,  here:  http://store.thesims3.com/setsProductDetails.html?categoryId=&scategoryId=12890&index=0&productId=OFB-SIM3:33579&pcategoryId=12858&ppcategoryId=12888

Chapter 30:  Week 9, Wednesday - Thursday

Wednesday Mary ages up and gets a new look.  I think she's quite beautiful in her outfit with the Gheez print.



By one of those strange coincidences, Wednesday also happens to be Malcolm Landgraab's birthday.  He comes over to share birthday cake.



Mary knows what she wants.  As soon as Malcolm has his birthday, she pops a wish to ask Malcolm to marry her - which she wastes no time in doing.  Malcolm says yes.



They commemorate the occasion by trying for baby, and it takes.  Another Vandersim is on the way.  They're really taking over the town.



Malcolm's LTW is to follow in his mother's footsteps and rise to the top of the Business career.  I figure it's as good as any other career, so both he and Mary get jobs in Business.  

Now that Malcolm is a part of the Vandersim clan, it's time for him to do something about his appearance.  He loses a bit of weight and gets a new look and new clothes, and you'd hardly recognize him.



Bringing Malcolm into the household also gave me access to his inventory, and did I get a surprise when I looked there - fourteen cars!  All sloppy jalopies and big lemons, not a valuable ride among the lot.  I guess the rich really are different from you and me.  Maybe his doting mother bought him a new car every time the old one got dirty.

Soon the newlyweds are ready to move to their new home, and quite a nice one it is.



Mary had about 35,000 happiness points when she moved out.

Chapter 31:  Week 9, Thursday - Friday

The day after Mary and Malcolm move out, Marilyn has her birthday.  Notice the visitor in the centre of the frame eyeing Marilyn?



Marilyn's new look.  I never realized before, but she has lovely violet-coloured eyes.



Christopher stays for dinner, which is very brave of him considering the burnt waffles he was served last time he ate in this house.  Sebastian's stuffed turkey is perfection on a dish, so there's nothing for Christopher to complain about in this meal.  But look what he's saying to Marilyn!  I think he must be telling her about the burnt waffles.



Well, one thing leads to another, and soon --



I think Chris has finally realized that his dreams of being part of a dynasty just aren't going to happen in this lifetime.  Or maybe he's noticed that the Vandersims have been taking over the town and it's time he got on board.  Whatever the case, Ol' Blue Eyes is back! 



Christopher's new look



I think they're pretty cute in their matching outfits.



Trying for baby



And Chris insisted on sharing this shot of himself in his snazzy new pajamas with the bunny slippers.  I wish I could find a pair of those Schipperke pajamas for myself!
