Back in Moonlight Falls, it was time for some birthday parties. I gave Nathan the irresistible trait (I’m getting ready for the next generation now) and Rosanna the computer whiz trait.
A couple of days later, Q’oro rolled cat person and Cassidy rolled easily impressed.
Q’oro and Cassidy are very close. They both feel a lot less shy hanging out together than they do surrounded by other sims.
Nipunus and Enza had another baby, Xala. She rolled perceptive and loves the outdoors. I went for the pastel skin tone this time, just because I prefer it.
Nathan asked Lacie to prom.
Rosanna made friends with Lacie’s little brother Lamar, who is her second cousin once removed.
His dad Ted likes to play video games with them.
On a cold, foggy autumn morning, Selina and Spencer got invited to one of those creepy swimwear parties at a house with no pool.
Moonlight Falls looks so dramatic in the rain.
Selina and Blaine celebrated their one year wedding anniversary. The weather was still nasty, so I had them stay in and watch a romantic movie.
Autumn is a fun time for kids.
Welcome to my pumpkin workshop.
Pumpkin pie for everyone!
The season went by pretty quickly, as I was really just waiting for winter to send my sims to Hidden Springs, and it was soon time for another round of birthdays – Rosanna’s, Xala’s, and Enza’s. I gave Rosanna the handy trait.
Nipunus, Enza, Q’oro, and Xala are very happy little family.
Since there are four of them now, I decided it was time for them to move out into a place of their own.
When spooky day arrived, Nathan took his sister trick-or-treating.
Normally NPCs just give candy, but this time – I guess because there are so many supernaturals around town – Nathan and Cassiday also got two genie lamps each and a whole lot of plasma juice. Unfortunately, before I could snap pictures of them eating the candy or using the lamps, my game crashed. (My fault: I’d been fiddling around in CAS too much without saving.)
I’d only lost about half a sim day, but weirdly when I loaded my game back up again, it was no longer spooky day, and there didn’t seem to be one scheduled either. There was no red circle on the calendar, my sims didn’t have the moodlet, and I couldn’t send the kids out trick-or-treating. The adults did get invited to a costume party though.
We threw our own costume party the following day, to celebrate Cassiday’s bithday. She rolled perceptive.
Rosanna met a fellow genius (and fellow cowboy enthusiast!), Gregor’s son Fabian.
They played a game of dominoes together.
I didn’t get to see who would have won, because their game was interrupted when a tragedy struck!
Time passed, and the family’s pain grew more bearable. Spencer continued to care for the garden.
Marty graduated from high school.
Rosanna met Fabian’s sister Alyson, who is also a genius.
The first winter morning brought a light snowfall, but the temperature wasn’t quite low enough for it to settle properly.
I had planned for Selina and Blaine to lead a trip to Hidden Springs, but, as things turned out, they had other responsibilities.
Since Selina will be unable to travel for a few days, I’m going to have Marty chaperon his sister and cousins on their winter vacation in the next and final part.
