Pointy Ears

Round 4
Spring – not using years anymore
Hopson Residence
Previous Update/Next Update

Ellen Walters is 35, Charles Walters is 27, Michael Hopson is 10, Sabrina Hopson is 7, Nathaniel Walters is 1.
Olive O’Hara, Ellie Ratner)

Last time, Scott Hopson was caught cheating with Fern by Ellen.  Later, Ellen called a taxi, which hit a patch of ice and ran over Scott, who was digging for treasure.  Ellen went on to buy an arcade, which made it to rank 10 and also a used car lot, which got to rank 5 (I think).  Ellen even found time to go on a blind date with the mailman, Charles.  He moved in soon after an the two got married and had a baby boy named Nathaniel.

I was distracted and did not get a family picture, but what else is new.

Let’s just watch a very pregnant Ellen holding a very weird looking Nathaniel.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-21-20-98

Lots of skilling to do and Ellen just needs to get it done before the baby comes.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-25-09-52

Ellen needed to eat, so Charles takes over some of the childrearing duties.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-26-46-49

Another piano addict.  I might have to set him up with Faith or something at this rate!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-27-32-58

Hey, it’s baby time!  Cool, she’s only an hour late for work and can still get there.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-29-33-65

It’s twin girls!  One is Kayla and the other is Sylvia.  Sabrina cheers for her new baby sisters.  Ellen drops the baby and heads off to work.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-32-40-16

Not much happens while she is gone.  She came home with a promotion to level 6?  Level 7?  One of those.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-53-10-43

Last seasons business earnings make there way into the bank for the kids.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-54-49-05

Ellen died at one point.  Charles apparently knocked her up and no one let me know so I could keep an eye on her.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-55-24-03

I got lucky that Charles was on his way to change the baby’s diaper.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 10-56-18-40

Ellen:  Yes!  I survived!

I am glad!  Now I can keep a better eye on her.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-00-34-21

Michael becomes a teen.  His LTW is to be a Hall of Famer.  I now need to build a stadium so he can get a job.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-27-25-89

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-28-16-06

He’s also an asshole regarding his makeover.  I ran out of time before getting him clothes.  Whoops.  He can just stay in ugly ones until Summer.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-30-54-32

Charles: OMG!  That thing is so ugly!  Are you sure it’s human?
Ellen:  Shut up.

Sylvia has her birthday first, and yeah, she’s ugly.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-31-50-13

Ellen: Omg.  They’re ugly and they smell bad!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-32-32-43

Ellen was just about to make dinner when she went into labor again.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-35-31-50

I would have gotten a baby pic of poor Steve, but I was too busy watching these shenanigans.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-43-26-22

I have been keeping track of Charles’ masterpieces.  He will become an artist before the round is done.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-45-16-77

Olive came home from work with Ellen.  They never really talked about the sudden loss of their brother, Russell, but Olive did show Steve off for everyone.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 11-46-44-57

The one that is done is #10.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-35-16-40

Apparently you’re pregnant.  Yet again, I am the last to know.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-39-24-11

Ellen goes into labor with Meredith.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-40-56-67

NO!  Charles!  Stop!  Keep your dangly away from that woman!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-41-05-02

Not only do you get to see little Steve, but you also get a real (sort of) look at Michael.  I had to put eyeliner on the guy because there was something up with his eyes.  It looked like he was wearing a face mask and it was creeping me out.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-42-26-34

Hahaha!  Charles is super excited to go to work.
Charles:  No.  I am super excited to ESCAPE the house.

It turned out that everyone got to escape that day.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 12-57-23-11

The roof over the garage was deleted and a ginormous nursery was built there.  Sabrina and Michael each have their own room now too.

One day, I will put a sim on birth control and mean it.  Even now, Ellen has a want for a baby and a want for 10.  Charles, the new voice of reason, has no interest.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-00-30-56

Nanny’s potty train?  Cool!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-11-00-29

Nathaniel has his birthday and is adorkable!  Also, Ellen gets some late night toddler training done.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-11-11-45

As does Charles.  I don’t know about them, but I am worn out!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-13-59-20

Sylvia is not actually all that bad, I guess.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-14-07-30

A last look at Steve.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-46-39-19

Followed by our first look at Meredith!  Kayla was asleep, so no picture of her today.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 13-47-35-01

With the birth of so many kids this time, all services except Pizza and Chinese food is unlocked!  Meet the new maid, who I like and will hopefully find someone to marry her.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 14-42-47-20

Only the Bryan household has more sims in it!  Due to the sheer size, they only have to pay $1,000 per sim in taxes this season.  It’s still $9,000, everyone is at work/school so they will pay up at the beginning of next.


  • Not much went on.  Just toddler skilling.  I think I prefer plantbabies.
  • Ellen is now on permanent birth control.  No more kids for her..or so I say now.
  • Yay for no glitches or crashes!


Sims2EP9 2015-04-14 15-41-35-08

Ellie Ratner may have turned down his flirt, but she and Michael have two bolts!  If you recall, she has been throwing tantrums for a the past couple of updates.  She’s up next so I hope we can get her happy again.
