Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - February 2041

Just one birthday this time, but he's such a cutie :)

How adorable is Liam Coners?! He's celebrating his first birthday. I think he's going to be a little mini version of his dad :). He's going to be a super sweet kid who is very outgoing and active. Kayla can't believe her little man is already one year old! And how cute is his little mohawk? Just like daddy's :)

* I aged Liam up just to see what he would look like and he's really going to take after Kenny and Terrence. So just thought I would give you a heartbreaker alert lol

* I know I said I would address Gretchen and her pregnancy in this bday post but this has been a busy week and I've actually not gotten a chance to go in the game in a few days. But I have another birthday post in April 2041 so we'll see her there.

* I've also added a non playable family. The Phillippine twins have been in my elementary school posts and they are the same age as the Brown twins. I added their family to Camden Park because I really wanted to have a farming family. I can't see any of my current residents waking up and wanting to run a farm lol. So we'll meet them in the next post. The father is Clarence and he'll run the farm and the mother is Lily and she'll actually be teaching at the elementary school. I have a lot in mind for a store for him to sell his produce, but he'll need to work on his badge a bit before I'll let him take out a loan and buy it.

Don't want to miss a thing

Round 8 - January 2041 - Mini-update
Matt's last update / Gavin's last update / Next update
Gavin Newson is 25, Gretchen is 33, Gallagher is 11, Gabriella is 9, Georgia and Garrett are 8, Ginger is 20, Matthew Picaso is 40, Jessica is 39, Hunter is 5

I don't want to miss one smile, I don't want to miss one kiss
I just want to be here with you, right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close, feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment, for all the rest of time

It was time for him to leave. They had shared a very sad Christmas together in which all anyone wanted to do was talk about how much they were going to miss him. The few weeks after his marriage to Gretchen flew by, and now here they were..........preparing to say good-bye.

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - January 2041

Warning: Not your average b'day post :)

She had been in pain for over an hour. She knew what that meant, knew that she needed to get to the hospital. But if she went, once she walked through those doors and that baby was delivered, she would be someone's mother. And she just simply was not ready for that. Not at all...................

Until the end of time

Round 8 - December 2040
Gretchen Chin is 33, Gavin Newson is 25, Gallagher is 11, Gabriella is 9, Garrett and Georgia are 8 (Ginger Newson is 20)
'Cause if your love was all I had, in this life
Well that would enough, until the end of time
So rest your weary heart, and relax your mind
'Cause I'm gonna move you girl, until the end of time 
Justin Timberlake

"I can't believe your brother is getting to move to another place!" Ricki said.
"Yea......we're gonna miss him. But Gretchen is suppose to stay here and take care of us," Georgia said.
"Is she nice?"
"Yea, she is. I think my brother really likes her," Georgia said with a giggle.

Scandalous Scholastics

Round 8 - November 2040 - LBPS
Last update/ Next update
Principal: Kip Henderson; Art Teacher: Kayla Knowles; Grade 8: Imara Coners, Imani Coners, Kali Knowles, Carl Faulkner, Samara Eldridge, and Hunter Davidson; Grade 10: Christa Brown, Bobby Emerson, Beverly Kendall

The kids were driving Kip crazy. Maybe it was because they were close to the Thanksgiving break. Maybe it was because they were hormonal thirteen year olds. Maybe it was because it was a stormy day. Whatever the reason, Kip wanted to lock them all in a sound proof room until the end of the day.
"Carl! Sit down and stop messing with Samara! Don't make me have to say it again," Kip said.

All I Really Want

Round 8 - October 2040
 Last update/ Next update
Satitu and Celeste Oros are 30, Andromeda is 2 months old, and Starema Orionious is 130 (Terrence Coners is 49, Amanda and Corbin Gray are 44, Connor is 8)

And all I really want, is some comfort
A way to get my hands untied
And all I really want, is some justice
Oh ah, oh ah, oh ah ah
Alanis Morrisette

Starema was really worried about Celeste. The newest abduction seemed to really be taking a toll on her daughter. She just didn't get why she wanted to stress herself out over this. No human would take the news that they had been pollinated well. And the males were even more opposed to it than the females as they saw it detracting from their "masculinity". It was all such silliness. She would think they would be honored to be chosen. It's not like it's something that happens every day!

Round 8 - October 2040
Last update/ Next update
Terrence Coners is 49, Tabitha is 50, Imani and Imara are 13

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me out first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like 
To have a voice in the back of my head
Linkin Park

Tabitha was having trouble finishing her latest novel. After the great success of Whispers in the Wind, she was nervous that Body Heat wouldn't live up to it. It was this fear that caused her to be very overcritical of every nuance of dialogue. It was driving her crazy. That, and the fact that she had been unable to convince Terrence to adopt a child........

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - October 2040

Jessica went into labor early one fall morning. Matt had been anxiously awaiting their new arrival. He wanted to be able to spend as much time as possible with the new baby.

Nine in the Afternoon

Round 8 - September 2040
Last update/ Next update
Kenny & Kayla Coners are 26, Liam is 7 months ( Brian Johnson, Slade Willis, and Mindi Mason are 26, Keisha Knowles is 52, Tabitha Coners is 50)

Cause it's nine in the afternoon
And your eyes are the size of the moon
You could cause you can so you do
We're feeling so good, just the way that we do
When it's nine in the afternoon
Panic! At The Disco

"You ready for one of those?" Kenny asked.
"Hell no. Why does everyone keep asking me that?"
"Because the kid is coming whether you're ready or not Slade. And if you're the dad, you know we're going to ride your ass about it until you do the right thing," Kenny said.
"IF the kid is mine. I'm still not convinced."
"It just sounds to me like you're in denial, man," Kenny said.

Coming Home

Round 8 - August 2040
Last update/ Next update
Matthew Picaso is 41, Jessica is 39, Hunter is 5

I'll make it home again
I pray you'll fall in love again
Just say you'll entertain the possibility
I learned enough from my mistakes
Learned from all I didn't say
Won't you wait for me?

Hunter wasn't doing so well in school. He didn't get what he was doing wrong. Maybe he should start asking his parents for help.......maybe he could even ask his dad. His dad was different now. He seemed.......happier. And that made Hunter happy. He guessed that the new baby was the reason. He didn't care what the reason was, he just knew that his dad was happy now and he was going to get to be a big brother!

Caught Myself - Part II

Round 8 - August 2040 - LBU

Don't know what I want
But I know it's not you
Keep pushing and pulling me down
When I know in my heart it's not you

Even though she knew they would have to struggle to pay off the loan they had to take out to get this place, Ginger had to admit that it had a nice view. It was one of the newer apartments in downtown LaQuest Beach and was actually a great complex. She was out of her mind, agreeing to help Meadow out with her problem. She was sure that she was now a shoe in for sainthood once she died........

Caught Myself - Part I

Round 8 - August 2040 - LBU
Last update/ Next update
Caleb Henderson, Ricky Cormier, Kimberly Jackson, and Meadow Thayer are 20

Don't know what I want
But I know it's not you
Keep pushing and pulling me down
When I know in my heart it's not you

If someone had told her that her college career would come to an end with her leaving pregnant, she would have laughed in their faces. Not Meadow Thayer. In a way she was glad to be leaving. She was showing now, and she was tired of the stares she got from other students. Maybe it was all in her head, maybe not. But either way she wasn't sad to be leaving. Things with Slade had improved......well as much as they were probably going to......she had had a conversation with him about helping her move to the new apartment with Ginger and she had only called him a bastard once......a definite improvement.......

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - August 2040

No one had told her that it would hurt. Oh sure, her mother said it was "unpleasant", but this went a tad bit beyond unpleasant. Unbearable was more like it!
"My gosh, let's just calm down ok? We've got to calm down. This kid is ready to make their grand entrance," Totia said.
"Oh bite me! Why couldn't you just zap the kid out of me like you do for the males that give birth? That's the most sexist damn thing I've ever heard!" Celeste yelled.

Round 7 Summary

Births: Jordyn Pace, Liam Coners, Adam Ellison

Weddings: Kenny Coners & Kayla Knowles; Derick Pace & Charity Jones

Expectant Mothers: Celeste Oros, Jessica Picaso, Meadow Thayer

Round 7 was filled with lots of drama, laughs, and love! Mellow Metal had their first tour, Kenny got married and had his first son! Derick Pace is attempting to turn over a new leaf for the sake of his daughter and wife. Celeste is finally going to be a mother and Slade was hit with the bomb that he is going to become a father. Round 8 is sure to be just as drama filled, if not more so! Here are the ROS for round 8:

* Oh no! Scotty beamed you up! Get abducted by aliens (I SO hate who rolled this :/. It's going to be hard as hell to work this in naturally lol. I think you'll be pretty surprised! I know I was!)

* Ugh, this 9 to 5 blows! Quit your job and start a new venture.

* Expand your family by adoption (Again, very fitting for this couple. I was actually going to let them adopt Meadow's baby, but it isn't very realistic)

I've been dying to roll the abduction one and isn't it just poetic that it's on the last person I would have ever picked! It'll be very interesting to work this out, in the end I'm sure it'll be good......I hope :). I'll be creating a page for all my non-playables like Mindi and the Phillippines who have twins that go to LBE. The census page has been updated to reflect the current stats.......quite a few sims in the hood now! Please be sure to check on my babble blog here for biographies on the founding sims and newly added playables.

I've also decided to make Meadow playable. I don't see her and Slade getting together, and I actually like playing with her. Plus, she'll be having the child of a playable character so I think it's only fair. I'm on the fence about whether Ricky will or not.......

Round 7 - July 2040
Last update/ Next update
Derick Pace is 47, Charity is 32, Jordyn is 1

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven, that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
Goo Goo Dolls

She should ask him. His club was doing well, but not well enough for him to be able to afford this beautiful town home. She should demand that he tell her what it is he does when he leaves the house for hours on end. And she should demand that he stop it, before he found himself locked up. She should, but she wasn't going to. She loved their life together and knew that he would never endanger Jordyn or her. And it really was a beautiful home.......

Time After Time

Round 7 - June 2040
Joe Carr is 44, Ariel is 38, Kayden is 10, Javion is 8, Layla and Lauren are 1 

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

Sometimes he still couldn't believe that they had been married for almost a decade. Ariel was still the most complicated woman he had ever met. While she definitely was the biggest diva he had ever known, she was also a really great mother and a beautiful wife. He didn't know how fate decided to put them together, but he was definitely glad it had........
