Not much of note has really happened with the Smiths, so I thought I'd title this post "Life Goes On", but it made me think of Ob-La-Di by the Beatles so I took the line from that instead.
I mentioned previously that I'd decided to remove my CC, which means removing the girls' modest skirts. This is the skirt Evelyn is currently wearing; it shows *gasp* KNEE but it's the longest skirt I could see.
I also didn't realise that the missing pyjama trousers (the only missing item, dunno how it happened) were the type Nicole was wearing. I think I'd chosen them because they were the baggiest pair I could find. So when Nicole woke up one day she was very NIKE! (This is, of course, Create-a-Sim, where I quickly gave her some new jammies).
Fruit pie for breakfast? Why not?
Elliot decided to go interact with the elderly. He's a little unsure about her bardot/cropped sweater, but he's only a kid.
Eliza goes for a jog. Parenthood introduces five Character Values, which are important to fundies. You can raise Emotional Control by jogging to clear your mind. If you raise Character Values to the top, you'll get an associated positive trait when you age to Young Adult. (Of course, you can also lower it to the bottom and get a negative trait).
Elijah visited a friends' house after school one day. He was *still* in the Bear phase, so I decided he had to wear normal clothes for this visit. (This results in a Sad moodlet). This is him chatting to Brian (forget the surname) and Callum Markham (younger brother of Becky, who was mentioned in an earlier post).
"Elijah, are you EVER going to leave this Bear phase? It looks ridiculous when you're walking around dressed as a purple bear with a bunch of grapes on your front."
Edward went to Hang Out at the San Myshuno park with neighbour Eric Lewis. (Gave him a makeover too; it seemed strange that everyone else was in a t-shirt and he was in a long-sleeved sweater).
Edward was very intrigued by the observatory; rather strange for a fundie...
Edward with a whole BOWL of animal crackers! Steve Maxwell would have an attack of the vapours
Nicole's aspiration is to be a Super Parent. (I don't know if this is irony or not). Anyway, you can raise Parenting skill by doing things like disciplining your kids, helping them with homework, and so on. One of the sub-lifetime wishes is for a child to have three positive character traits (which I mentioned earlier). Sims 2 and 3 have similar systems.
Like Eliza and Eddie before her, Evelyn is very creative. She loves to make music!
Nicole loves baking, so she made some carrot cake! (That grimy counter top will be cleaned by one of the
E-slave/sister moms kids later.
"Wow! Eliza made such a beautiful volcano!"
Remember what I said earlier?
Edward and Nicole decided to have a date night/evening. They visited a garden in Willow Creek first.
Later... the beloved fundie dip kiss!
Emily and Eliza doing their preferred activities... Emily programming and Eliza about to play the violin. Here you can see their snazzy new PJs.
We finish this random life post with a picture of Nicole eating some gumbo (I think? Or was it franks and beans? They look very similar in game).
