I am pleased to see that they are starting off on the right foot,it is not about the wedding it is about the marriage of two people in love and wanting to spend the rest of his life together.

Raven’s Hatchling

El and I walked hand in hand back to what was left of our wedding party.  Most of the guests had already gone home, but our parents were waiting for us and they didn’t look happy.

‘Do you even know how much effort your grandmother and I put into this party?!’ Mom scolded.
‘But Mom…’ I started.
‘Don’t you ‘But Mom’ me, young lady,’ she said.  ‘You are in SO much trouble!’

Dad was a quiet man, and when he did talk it was mostly to the plants in his garden or to himself…the insanity thing if you know what I mean.  I don’t remember him ever uttering more than two coherent words in my whole life, but for just a moment it was as if a veil had been lifted and he could see things with utter clarity.

‘Meggy, dear,’ he said, ‘leave the kids alone about this.  Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves just fine and Raven is married – what more could you want from a wedding party?’

Mom was stunned into silence for perhaps the first time ever, then she burst out laughing.  She threw her arms around Dad and gave him the kind of kiss that only people truly in love can share.  The last El and I saw of them they were heading upstairs towards their bedroom with their arms around one another.  Ahhh, romance!

‘Grams, why don’t you go and relax.  El and I will clean up out here,’ I said as I kissed her cheek.
‘Okay, dear, thank you.  Don’t work too hard though, remember you only get one wedding night so be sure to enjoy it,’ she replied with a wink.

We took Grams’ advice and, after a quick trip to the mirror for El…



…we settled in to enjoy our first night as a married couple.



El loved the outdoors and as soon as he saw Dad’s garden all of his political aspirations flew out the window.  Dad took him under his wing and taught him everything he knew about gardening.  Thanks to the fine grove of money trees Dad planted, El was able to progress quite rapidly in his career as a self-employed gardener.  As for me, I seemed to be earning a promotion almost every day.  I was best friends with all my accomplices at work and had a healthy friendship with the boss.  Everything was going exactly as I hoped.

The rest of the family was doing well, too.  Grams had her painting and sculpting to keep herself busy.  Mom and Dad had both reached the pinnacle of their careers but neither one was ready to retire.  Fortunately they didn’t have to work very much so they had plenty of time to devote to their hobbies.  As I mentioned, Dad and El spent time in the garden, although Dad seemed to spend most of his time playing in the sprinklers while he tutored El.  Mom spent all her spare time with our animals.  She learned to ride so that when Eclipse was full grown she could enter him in competitions at the Equestrian Center. 

Remember that unicorn Mom met…well she finally got the nerve to invite her to join our family.  Prairie was already an elder when she came to live with us, but unicorns live longer than other animals so we’re hopeful that she will be with us for a long while yet.

Kimo and Roux are inseparable…



…and Dumpling has found herself a place among the gnomes.



Speaking of gnomes, we know have TWO freezer bunnies riding llamas!



One night I came home from work to find El waiting up for me, which surprised me since I don’t get home from work until after 3 am.

‘What’s wrong, honey?’ I asked.
‘Nothing’s wrong…’ he hesitated.  ‘It’s just that…well…I love you…and I love our life together…’
‘I do, too,’ I reassured.
‘I know you’re working on advancing your career, but…I think we should start our family,’ he blurted out, afraid of what I might say.
 
I sat there staring at him.  Of course we would have a family eventually.  I really hadn’t given it much thought just yet, I was more focused on achieving my career goals - only four more promotions until I would be the Emperor of Evil (mwaa haa haa).  I paused for a moment as I thought the idea over…I could take a short maternity leave and still easily reach the top of my career before my elder birthday…

‘Say something, Raven,’ El said quietly.
‘Okay.’
‘What?!,’ he asked.
‘I said okay.  Let’s have a nooboo.’

It was as though someone had flipped a switch inside El.  He leapt to his feet, swept me up into his arms, and carried me up the stairs to our bedroom…



We were thrilled a few days later to find out that I was pregnant.



Of course my criminal career was on hold during the pregnancy, but I found plenty of things to occupy myself around town.  The spa quickly became my favorite place.  El went with me one day so he could learn how to give a proper massage.  At the first sign of a back ache he was right there with his magic hands!  Too bad those hands couldn’t work some magic once the labor pains started, though.



Mom and Grams stayed by my side throughout the whole thing.  Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, the newest Fae arrived.



This is my daughter, Callie.  She loves the outdoors and is insane…just like Dad.  I’m quite certain that life just got more interesting!

Thank you for your kind comments, Alex.  I had completely forgotten that the same thing happened in my Starr Dynasty, I even used the same title for the chapter...oh well, I must have liked it the first time around.   ;D

Thank you, Rica and loveSims!

Time Flies

It's a good thing El and I decided to start our family when we did.  It brought everyone in the family so much joy to have a nooboo to dote on, especially Mom and Dad.  I guess I'll understand better when Callie grows up and I'm a grandmother.

The day before her birthday was like any other.  El and Dad were out in the garden, Mom was training Eclipse for racing competitions, and Grams was painting.  In other words, it was perfect.  Whenever Callie would so much as sigh everyone would come running.  In retrospect I should have asked Grams to take some photographs, but I was too focused on my athletic training.

That evening after a lovely dinner, Dad went out to 'work in the garden' a bit more.  We all knew he was going out to play in the sprinklers as he loved to do.  I know you know where this is headed...Dad never made it to the garden.  Grim came calling for him at age 94.



He accepted his fate magnanimously, even shaking hands with Grim.  Perhaps it was his insanity, perhaps he was just satisfied that he had lived a long and happy life, we'll never know for sure.  I'm just grateful he had a chance to hold his granddaughter before he passed.

The next day no one felt much like having a party, so we had a small family celebration to mark Callie's passage into toddlerhood.



Mom set right to teaching Callie her toddler skills.  When she was tired out from all that learning, Mom set her in her new swing.



Of course it wasn't all work for my little one.  She found plenty of time to play with her special friend, Peanut.



Speaking of special friends, Grams saw her old IF, Pal, down at the consignment store the other day.  It was really strange because Grams had never made Pal real, yet here she was in the flesh.  Grams said she looked like a regular Sim but she walked and talked like she had when Grams was a girl.



In other news, Dad comes back to visit us all the time.  He seems to be concerned about watching his figure in the afterlife since he is always working out. 



He and Gramps are making themselves a bit too comfortable around the house and seem to take special delight in scaring us.  In the end we made a difficult decision and bought the local cemetery.  We found a secluded spot and moved our family plot there with pets on one side and Dad and Gramps on the other.  We can still go there after dark and visit with their ghosts when they come out, but things are much calmer around the house now.

My birthday and El's birthday came and went without notice, but of course we celebrated Callie's when the time came. 



She takes after her grandfather in so many ways - we can't tear her away from the sprinklers.



She has a vivid imagination and is always playing make-believe.



For someone who is very nearly the Emperor of Evil I sure enjoy reading her a bedtime story.  Well, even Dr. Evil had a soft spot for Mr. Bigglesworth, so I guess it's okay.



Like all the Fae women, Callie was an excellent student and soon made the honor roll at school.  She took up scouting and would help El in the garden when she got home from school.  I can see we have a future farmer on our hands with this one.

It seemed like Callie's childhood flew by and we were ready to celebrate her teen birthday.  Actually it would be a double celebration - I had finally earned my final promotion at work and gotten this nifty red glow.



Callie grew into a lovely young lady.  The resemblance between us is kind of scary.  Oh well, no doubt that she is a Fae.



Now the fun really begins...learning to drive, mood swings, the prom...oh boy!

And Then There Were Three

My elder birthday was just days away and all of my requirements for immortality were complete, that is as long as Grim didn't come for Lindsay or Janine.  The three of us had come up in our careers together and were the best of friends.  It made me sad to think that I would long outlive them if things went according to plan.

Callie's teen years were not as tumultuous as El and I had expected, but they weren't over yet.  Grams taught her to drive as she had done for me years ago, and for the most part Callie was responsible.  There was the time she was caught out after curfew...



Fortunately I had contacts among the Appaloosa Plains PD, so they simply dropped her off at home with a warning.  I suppose it was meant to put some fear into her about not following the rules.  Of course Mom met her at the door and any fear the police instilled went right out the window.  I can tell you that Mom may look sweet, but you don't want to get on her bad side.  She grounded Callie for a week.

Fortunately the prom was a little more than a week away, so Callie wouldn't miss it.  I think Mom would have relented on that point if it came to it, but I can't be sure.

Callie chose a little less formal outfit than I had hoped when the big night finally arrived.  She's a bit 'unique' in terms of her fashion sensibility.  Oh well, at least she didn't wear her bathing suit as I feared she might.



She was crowned prom queen, keeping the Fae record intact.



She met a young man at the dance and they hit it off quite well.  His name is Josh Aguilar and he has been a frequent guest at our house ever since.




I'm hopeful that she may have found her soul mate in Josh but only time will tell.  He recently had his young adult birthday, but he is so taken with Callie that he has promised to wait for her until she graduates.  In an unexpected turn of events, Mom has befriended him and asked him to move in.  I guess with all the live-in chaperones there isn't really any harm.  He is quite a talented cook and she managed to pull some strings to get him a job at the bistro where she works.  He's quite a handsome young man and a great match for Callie.



In other news, our house is facing a gnome invasion...



...led by none other than Blingaboo!



Oh, and we couldn't go for long without another visit from Grim.  This time he came for our unicorn, Prairie.



We moved her headstone out back by the pond she loved so much.  Every so often she visits.



And finally my big day arrived...



...followed by a quick trip to the mirror.



All those years perfecting my martial arts skills have paid off.  Not many women my age can rock a bikini like I can!  Grams set about sculpting, painting, and photographing me and before the sun set on my elder birthday it was time for ambrosia.



I don't know what I expected it to taste like, but it was awful!  I managed to choke it down, though, and joined Mom and Grams as the third immortal.

Thank you for all the kind words of support!  I'm so excited to have Raven in the record book, so to speak, after having to replay her trip to China three times because of my cat and some technical difficulties. 

Yep, loveSims, I have a ton of gnomes now.  The funny thing is they didn't start grouping up like that until I finally got a Mysterious Mr. Gnome.  The other pics of the gnomes on the counter together were staged that way by me.  Now I find all the gnomes gathered together all the time.

New update is coming soon - a lot has happened in a short time in the game.
