The Wedding Crasher

This is the story of my wedding to Josh and the events leading up to it.  As you know, Grandma Meg invited him to live with us until I’m of age to marry.  It made me so happy to know that my family approved of him, after all our house isn’t that big that we can avoid one another if there is some unpleasantness so it is best if we all get along.  We do mostly get along, well everyone except Mom and Grandma Meg.  Mom’s red glow upsets Grandma Meg so much that they barely speak to one another anymore.  But I digress.

A few days before my birthday I was soaking in the hot tub…



…I do my best thinking in the hot tub. 

Kimo had come over to say hello when the strangest thing happened.  This scary looking man in a black robe appeared out of nowhere and knelt down to hug Kimo.  The whole family came rushing out to see what was going on.



It turns out this man was the Grim Reaper and he had come to take Kimo away.  We all watched and cried as Grim showed Kimo the light.  Then, before any of us realized what was going on, Mom ran up to Grim and started shaking her cane at him.  I can’t repeat the things she said, but Grim did his best to calm her down.  When that failed, he bowed to the rest of us and disappeared as quickly as he had appeared.  Grandma Glenys tried to calm Mom down, but she was having none of it.  Thank goodness for the moodlet managers that Grandma G got for us.  They don’t make us miss Kimo any less, but they make the grief a little more bearable.

The next day was Josh’s graduation.  Although none of us were in a mood to celebrate, we all put on our happy faces and went to City Hall to watch the ceremony.  I can’t wait until I’m the one graduating!  Soon, very soon!  When we got home from City Hall, who should be at our house but Grim.  Mom ran up to him and swung her cane as if to strike him.  He put his hand out to ward off the blow, and Mom stopped in her tracks.  She watched in horror as Dumpling came up to Grim and started rubbing up against his legs as if he were her old friend.  Grim gently picked her up and kissed her on the nose.



Dumpling happily went to the light as we stood there and sobbed.  With a nod to Grandma G, Grim said there was still one more soul he needed to collect and that we would see him again very soon.  Then he disappeared.

I couldn’t believe it…who else would he take from us?  Eclipse had barely turned elder and the only other non-immortals in the family were Dad, Josh, and me.  Was he coming back for Dad?!

The days leading up to my birthday were tense as we all wondered when Grim would appear again and who he would take this time.  We decided against a party in light of our recent losses of Kimo and Dumpling.  We had a small family celebration, hoping that this wouldn’t draw Grim’s attention.  We had heard rumors about how much he enjoyed dropping in on a party.



The next day it was time for my graduation.  Like Mom and Grandma Meg before me, I was the class valedictorian.  Woo hoo, school’s out for good!



While we were waiting for the rest of the family to decide where we were going to have our celebratory dinner, Mom excused herself.  She had decided that this is the day she would retire from her criminal career.  She said that it was because she was entitled to enjoy her old age, but I think she really did it so she could mend fences with Grandma Meg.  If Mom didn’t glow red at inopportune moments perhaps Grandma Meg would slowly forget and forgive her choices.  Mom sure looks happy!



Later that evening I pulled Josh aside to ask him a very important question…



…and he said yes!



The wedding party was set for the next day.  Mom and Dad spared no expense.



The partying lasted into the night…



…until the wedding crasher showed up.



Sure enough, Grim had returned for a third time in four days.  This time he came to collect Kevin Bender, father of my classmate Vito.  Kevin was a vampire and he didn’t make it to the plasma fruit in time.  Mom was so angry she finally hauled off and whacked Grim with her cane.



I hope we don’t see him again for a very long time, but both Dad and Eclipse aren’t getting any younger.  It’s just a matter of time before he returns.

Grim is such a meanie, but I laughed when he got hit with a cane. Serves you right for messing with the Fae's!  :) I really like how Callie turned out.

Thank you, Alex, me too!

Thank you, Phantome!  I wish I could take credit for thinking of it myself but I saw someone else use that angle and I liked it so much I tried it out.  I love the look on Callie's face.  :)

Thank you, loveSims!  Each time Grim showed up Raven got more and more angry with him until the last time at the wedding when she hit him with her cane.  I'm actually looking forward to him coming back again - I want to see if Raven will start a brawl with him.  I didn't prompt any of it - she just started the whole thing on her own.  After Raven gets mad at Grim, Glenys goes over and tries to chat with him.  It's pretty funny to watch.

Grapes and Watermelons

After Callie and I were married we decided to honeymoon in Champs les Sims. Given the events leading up to and during our wedding we really needed to get away from it all and spend time together.  Of course my lovely bride also had an ulterior motive for choosing France.  Callie had reached the top of her career as a gardener while she was still a teenager thanks to the ever expanding grove of money trees her family planted, but she still had several challenges to undertake in order to become a master gardener.  She knew that there were several varieties of grapes that could only be obtained there, and she needed them to complete one of her challenges, so we set off on our whirlwind trip.

As soon as we arrived Callie sent me to the Nectary in order to obtain some of the more common grapes while she set off to find the more rare varieties.  I took advantage of my task to taste a few of the local nectar offerings before I set off to join her in a labyrinth of underground tunnels to search for the elusive fruit.  We managed to collect what we needed, not to mention a few valuable relics, before our trip was over.  I also learned recipes for several local dishes that are sure to be a hit when we get back to Appaloosa Plains.

Upon our return we settled into a happy routine.  Callie spent most of her time in the garden and before long had completed all of her challenges.  She was now a master gardener!  My job at the Bistro was coming along nicely.  While we were gone, Grandma Glenys converted the barn loft from a studio into a recreation space, complete with musical instruments, a dance floor, and some arcade games.  All work and no play, as they say…



I had just returned home from work one evening when Callie pulled me aside and said we needed to talk.  I braced myself…frantically wracking my brain to figure out what I might have done to prompt a ‘talk’.  I was relieved to learn that I hadn’t done anything.  After achieving so many of her goals Callie realized that there was something missing.  Of course I was more than happy to oblige…







At the first hint that she might be pregnant Callie started eating watermelon and listening to children’s music.  Does she know something that I don’t?  Everyone in the family took the opportunity to pamper her with daily trips to the spa and all of her favorite meals.  El spent his days tending the garden so Callie wouldn’t strain herself.  Grandma Meg decided that this would be a perfect time to bring home a kitten so our nooboo would have a pet.  Meet Mr. Pickles.



Everything was going along wonderfully until Callie went into labor…



That sure doesn’t look like fun!  At least the nursery was ready.  We had matching pink cribs for the twin girls we were expecting.  You can imagine our surprise when Callie gave birth to a single, bouncing baby BOY!  Now we really had to scramble – we didn’t even have any names picked out for a boy!  It was a free for all as everyone in the family weighed in with their suggestions…Neville…Brandon…Cody…Nathan…Laron (guess who suggested that one!)…and the list went on.  Finally we found a name that Callie and I could agree on, so I present you with my son, Daniel Fae.  He is a genius and perceptive, and while he may not be the nooboo we expected, he’s perfect in every way!



Author’s Note:  Well little Danny sure surprised me since Callie ate 5 or 6 watermelons and was surrounded by children’s music wherever she went.  I was certain she was going to have twin girls.  :D  In retrospect I think she ate the watermelons too early and didn’t continue eating them after she found out she was pregnant.  Also, with 6 sims in the house already perhaps twins weren’t going to happen no matter what.  It’s all good, though - I’ve already seen Danny as a toddler and he is adorable!

Welcome Danny Boy!

How many pets do you have?  I found out when I tried to give Artie twins again that sims + pets can't have more than 10 so that could be why you got a single.  Not sure about the boy part though!

Great updates and I can't wait to see the little guy as a toddler!

At the time of pregnancy and delivery there were 6 sims and 1 horse in the family (I took a little poetic license in my story - Mr. Pickles was actually adopted right after Danny was born).  I believe you can have a maximum of 8 sims or 6 pets (with a maximum of sims+pets of 10), so I hoped for twins.  I just wasn't sure if the game would allow twins to be born if that would cap the number of sims in the house.

As for why we got a boy this time, I don't think Callie ate watermelons after her pregnancy was confirmed (she ate about 5-6 of them as soon as the chimes sounded and during the nauseous pre-pregnancy period).  I thought for sure that would be enough to ensure a baby girl.  I kind of liked having the surprise of a boy.   ;D

The same kind of thing happened in my first Dynasty attempt - she ate about 5 watermelons during the "nausea" period, but still had a boy! I know Pam recommends more like 8-10.

And yes, it will give you multiples if it will max out the house; in another challenge, I had a pregnant sim with 2 empty slots in the house, then someone moved out right before Mom went into labor, and she had triplets. I always had the impression the time to listen to children's music and watch the kids channel on TV (also important) is before Try For Baby...

Ugh today a similar thing happened to me. My sim was stuffed with apples and listened to kids music constantly. Then she gave birth to a single boy. I'm happy about the boy part, but come on, the only time she wasn't with kids music is when she was asleep. The only other sims in the household was the father and a dog. I'm starting to wonder if maybe pets are interfering with the twins thing. Or maybe I should've just bought the fertility treatment.

First of all great update Kat I loved it as always. Secondly I have had occasions where my Sim didn't have twins despite having the fertility treatment,watching kids television and listening to kids radio.On the other hand I have been surprised with twins or triplets without doing any of those things. I am not sure that the house size has much to do with it when playing my hidden springs decadynasty my Sim couple had twin girls when they already had four children bringing the household up to eight members. That was one of those times when I wasn't expecting a multiple birth.

As for eating fruit I always make sure to carry on eating my desired fruit right up until my Sim has the baby.

Besides Danny is adorable and a welcome addition to the family.

Oh Danny Boy

With so many people in the house all doting on Danny's every need his nooboo days flew by.  Before long it was time for his toddler birthday.  I helped him to the cake...



...and after the sparkles what a handsome little man we had.  Someone likes red!



Since I had already achieved so many of my goals I decided that I would be the one to teach Danny his skills.





Of course there was plenty of time to play with Mr. Pickles..



...and master the old 'pick and flick'.



Apparently Mom misses her career as Emperor of Evil.  She just had to steal Danny's lolly.  Shame on you, Mom!



And just like that it's birthday time again.



We got Danny a chemistry set for his birthday - he hasn't discovered any potions yet, but he's blown himself up several times.  Perhaps he should stick to chess and stargazing instead.



This is his school friend, Aimee Kuykendall.  She and Danny get along beautifully.  Perhaps she will be the mother of my grandchildren some day.



Mom chatted with her a bit and picked up on some less than desirable traits (coward, frugal, loner), but we can work with that if Danny chooses her when he is old enough to marry.
