Round 6 - Burton 1

Round 6 House 6 brings us to the Burton Family. Before the season begins the family consisted of Ashley Burton a never married town romancer, her sister Kelly Burton the poor lonely unmarried popularity sim and Ashley's twins (with Orion Roswell) Justice & Jordan.

Last Time: Ria became a teen and left for college, the twins became kids and Ashley was stalked by one of the Ashski brothers.

Sawyer Burton comes home from college to take over the Burton house. Sawyer is the son of Jackie Burton Monterey & Austin Monterey. He quickly marries his longtime girlfriend Iris Harlord.

(Iris Harlord Burton - Romance/Fortune - LTW marry off 6 kids - Aquarius - 4 neat, 4 outgoing, 4 active, 7 playful & 6 nice)

Since she's a romance sim she doesn't mind so much when I tell her to go start working on those six kids.

Kids at play. Jordan is skipping rope and Justice is playing with one of the Monterey kids. Basillia Monterey if I'm not mistaken.

It finally happens that the last Burton girl gets old.

Sawyer tops the music field but he wants to be a celebrity chef so that doesn't make him all that happy.

I continue on with my cheesecake experiments. Why won't you work?

The twins become teens. So Justice, tell us what you want to do with your life.
Justice: Well I am all about the babes. It's romance for me. So I'm thinking I'd make a great Rock God. Best way to snag the babes don't ya know.
And Jordan, what are you're thoughts?
Jordan: Well, I'm also into romance but I'm thinking of sticking to the family business and becoming a celebrity chef.
I see. Two more romancers. How lovely.
Justice: Help?
Sorry dude. You have a ticket so you must take the ride. At least you're a teen so no baby. See ya on the other side dude.

Justice: I just can't believe the things I saw on that ship. It's shocking...but in a good way.

Oh no. The baby is coming with Iris standing in a foot of snow.

It's a girl. A very pale faced girl. And what lovely eyes she has.
Iris: Thank you. We'll name her Bobbi.
Ok. Bobbi Burton it is.
And before you know it Bobbi becomes a toddler.

And thus ends another exciting winter season. The twins have one more season before they head to college due to my four day minimum rule. Ashley is still around although she didn't make it into any shots. And once again the cheesecake didn't work. Whatever. More next time.

Round 6 - Monterey 1

Round 6, House 5 is the first Monterey house. Before the season started the residence were: Austin Monterey hopeless romancer, his wife Jackie Burton Monterey and their three children natural twins Arela & Angelo and unexpected daughter Alona.

Last time: Jackie reached her LTW by topping gaming and then became an elder and the kiddies grew.

Austin's nephew Gabriel Monterey will be taking over this house. He just arrived home from college with his fiance Jala Burton Monterey. So it's Austin's nephew marrying Jackie's niece.

And the wedding is taking place in the family crypt (so to speak). There really isn't enough room to hold the wedding there but it had to happen somewhere and the lot isn't that big.

As you can see a lot of friends and family members came to see the couple joined in marriage. First sim on the front row is Ashley Burton aunt of the bride and third sim on the front row is Kelly Burton mother of the bride and only Burton sister not to yet reach elderhood. Mother of the groom Janice Monterey Yessam is right in the middle with the blond hair and the wild print dress. She wants to marry off six kids and I'm thinking this is number three.

It was a beautiful ceremony. All about love and hope for the future.

And then came the reception. The bride did not take kindly to some comment from her aunt Ashley.

But Gabriel knows how to handle his woman. It looks like Adam is standing right behind him taking notes.
Gabriel: Open wide sweetie.
Jala: Honey don't. *giggles*

Obviously words were passed between the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.

I can see that the holidays won't be pleasant this year. And the award for the mean face goes to Kelly Burton. Sorry Janice you need to practice.

After finally getting all the relatives to go away, the young couple head off on their Asian honeymoon. This is a very rare occurrence in my hoods so I hope they enjoy it.

Things started off very relaxing.

They met tons of interesting new people.

Some encounters I'm sure they would rather forget.

But there seemed to be a lot of violence in the orient this year.

So the young couple cut the trip short and head back to start their new lives together.

Back home, the twins have a birthday. Ok guys. Tell us about your future aspirations.
Angelo: Well, I want to enjoy a life of pleasure, like my mom did. I hope to take over my aunt Kelly's television cooking show and become a celebrity chef.
Arela: I would rather strive for knowledge. I will make tons of cash though. But I don't see why I should have to work for it. Why not steal it. Yes it's a life of crime for me.
I can see that your parents haven't been the best influences on you two.
Angelo wished for love at the wishing well and found it with townie Mal Tam. The two dated all during the season.

Arela put the moves on her old friend Welsh Holiday. They both love knowledge and have tons in common so they made a great couple.

As you probably expected, Jala came back from her honeymoon with a little more than she left with. Generation three is in the oven folks.

I never thought I'd see the day when Austin got old. You do realize it will be easier for your 30 loves to catch you now.
Austin: Na. I still have my Jackie to beat the other 29 loves away.

And then this happens. I swear this is the most alien active neighborhood I have ever had. I've had legacies try for generations to get one abduction and in this town people are getting taken when I don't even want them to.

Oh poor Gabriel. We feel your pain. Ok not really but I'm trying to be sympathetic and not laugh at that sad face.

Angelo: You punch like a girl.
Arela: I am a girl you dweb.

Jala: OH! OH!
Gabriel: It's coming. The baby is coming.
And here he is. The first member of generation three, Chi Monterey. Awwww. Ain't he cute.

Alona: BOO!
Arela: *screams*
Alona: You scream like a girl.
You know I kind of like this new torment action. It's cute and realistic.

But eventually Alona grew beyond her desires to torment.
Alona: I did? I only have one nice point. I doubt that I'll ever outgrow it.
True. So...what do you want out of life Alona?
Alona: Well I want to have a huge family and become an education minister.
A large family out of a sim with one nice point. I'm thinking no. Course you'll talk me out of it later but still.
And that wraps up another fun filled winter at the Monterey house. Gabriel became permanently platinum by topping the education field. Angelo headed to college with his girl friend Mal Tam. Alona headed to college to hook up with Welsh Holiday. Oh and if you were wondering why Jala didn't have twins, it's because my cheese cake doesn't seem to work anymore. No idea why.

Round 6 - Lancaster 1

Round 6, House 4 is the Lancaster house. Our family currently consists of Zackary Lancaster (a permanently platinum fortune sim that stays bored all the time), his wife Liza Dante Lancaster (also fortune, also permanently platinum, also has nothing to do), Liza's hidden pregnancy teen daughter Lucia (knowledge sim who wants to be a game designer) and their toddler son Lamar.

Last time: Lamar became a toddler, Liza got pregnant again and Lucia met Beryl Rosada.

This is the one and only shot I could find of Lucia this go round. She did some skilling and at the end of the round headed off to college to be with her true love Beryl. Say hi and bye Lucia.

Lamar. You're a child now.

Lamar: Ummm. Yeah. I'm starting school tomorrow.


Liza, staying out of trouble I hope.
Liza: Giving investment advice. It's my favorite pastime. Well that and kissing Zack from head to toe.
Stick with the investing. The family is getting to large as it is.
And speaking of the family, the newest little Lancaster has arrived.
Liza: It's a girl. I think we should name her Lakkari. It's an Australian name that means honeysuckle tree.
Works for me. I was just happy to finally get an orange child.
Zack calls up the family to give them the good news.
Zack: Yeah I know. But finally we got another orange kid in the family. Oh yeah I totally think we should keep trying for more.
I don't.
Zack: Orange. It's my favorite color. Like the color of Mars. The planet not the neighbor.

Zack: Aw hell. I didn't want to get more kids this way.

Then maybe you should do what I ask and leave the telescopes alone.

James: He'll never listen. That boy has not listened since the day my beloved daughter pushed him out into the world.

Liza, what the heck or you up to?
Liza: Just maken cash. Zackary doesn't like it but he's not here right now is he.
She kept this up until she started a blazing fire. Silly simmy.

Zack you're back. How was your trip.
Zack: Painful. Why haven't you boycotted telescopes if they cause this to happen?
Ummm. I think it's funny and I'm a glutton for punishment? Oh, and I like green babies.
Zack! I thought you were going to leave the telescopes alone.
Zack: You should see what my neighbors are up to. He he he. Those Holiday's reproduce like bunnies.
Any you Lancaster's don't?
Awww. Lakkari is a toddler. (Lakkari Lancaster - Scorpio - 9 neat, 7 outgoing, 9 active, 3 playful & 1 nice)
Darn. No nice and no eye brows.

Zack: He he he. I'm going to have to write a book. This stuff is just to good not to share.
I thought we talked about this. I thought you were going to leave the telescopes alone.
Zack: Na. I'll make a killing when my tell all book hits the stands.
Zack: Oh no. I think it wants out.
Zack: It's a boy. A little green boy. I think I'll name him Landan Lancaster.
Landan it is.
And that wraps up another season at the Lancaster house. Is it me or do they not look happy in their portraits?
