Gotta start those homemaker skills early!
Francesca and Elijah ended up sleeping in each other's beds, but I didn't regard it as a big problem. You can claim beds in Sims 3, such that they will automatically sleep in those beds.
Bethany dancing this time. Perhaps they're OK with it?
Francesca really needed the loo one morning, but it was filthy so she had to clean it.
OK. It's official, the Taylors are OK with dancing. Melissa gets involved. I have Classical music playing all the time, so it's not ebil pop with a beat.
Joey mastered the Gardening skill!!
Bethany decided to try and sell some baked goods. Sadly, nobody bought anything.
I managed to get everyone in shot! That's Diana talking to Joey; kids with the Excitable trait often pretend to rule over an imaginary kingdom, dressing up in a costume and with a crown. Only God can really rule over a kingdom, though! It was an automatic action, and with eight people in a household you can't control everyone at once.
What's this? It's a cute little kitten! His name is Jacob.
Bethany did get a customer one day, but Patricia Bedlington didn't buy anything. Joey's not looking at Patricia's vest and shorts. Plus, the visitor is a vampire...
The twins age up!
We can have family band practice now. I wish I could attach a video file of the music they're playing, but I can't. It sounds pretty cool when they jam together. There are two styles, "Jam" and "Blues".
Whenever someone plays an instrument, the others like to come and watch. This is mostly OK, except when they're supposed to be going to bed. Then it's just stupid. Oi, you're tired, go to bed. You can watch your mom play the piano tomorrow.
Everyone's off to school!
Cleaning up around the house isn't just for the girls in this family. Or is he doing something else...?
Oh noes! Melissa's hair! Turns out Andrew was playing a prank. Fairies love to prank. I don't get the Taylors to do it much, but Andrew was having a mood swing and had a wish to play a prank.
Melissa wanted to earn some money by playing piano in the park, but no-one gave her any tips. Perhaps I'll try somewhere else.
Joey decided to enter a hot dog eating contest.
The natural consequence of stuffing your face... throwing up afterwards.
A couple of days later, we got another kitten. This is Eliza, short for Elizabeth. Jacob was pretty lonely, so I got another pet of the same species.
I still intend to take them on vacation one day. I don't know where I'll go. Maybe France.
