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.

Notes:

  • 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!

Bonus:

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.
