Round 6 - Monterey 3

  • Joey Monterey - Knowledge / Popularity - permanently platinum - impossible want complete - Deep Sea Fisherman
  • Jacqueline Blair Monterey - Knowledge / Family - permanently platinum - impossible want complete - Hostage Negotiator
  • Bastillia Monterey - child (Joey & Jacqueline)
  • Bahram Monterey - toddler (Joey alien son)
  • Darice Monterey - infant (Jaqueline alien daughter)
Last time:   Bastillia became a child.  Joey was abducted and gave birth to Bahram.  Jacqueline was abducted and gave birth to Darice.

Here we go again.  Maybe big family weddings aren't the way to go.

With Joey at work, Jacqueline gets to finish Bahram's toddler training.

I've found homework little miss.  Time to put up the train and head downstairs.

Birthday time.  Darice becomes a toddler.  She is a virgo with 10 neat, 2 outgoing, 10 active, 6 playful & 7 nice.

Oh boy.  I forgot about the risky.  I installed it recently when I started playing my new Megahood.  It was only suppose to be a woohoo.  Now it's a baby.

With winter mild for the moment, Jacqueline works on her fishing badge.  She currently has a silver.

Bahram Monterey becomes a child.

He celebrates by singing in the snow.  Mild winter over.

Jacqueline goes into labor in the middle of the night.

She gives birth to a son.  This is Balthasar Monterey.

The next night, Darice becomes a child.

Basillia becomes a teen.  She is a popularity teen who wants to someday be a general.  (I am starting to find it freaky that I'm rolling into the same aspirations as the kids had last time AND they are getting the same LTW.)

Jacqueline goes back to work.  She gets two promotions in one day and is now a Space Pirate.  That is her second LTW fulfilled and her second career topped.  Now she would like a golden anniversary.  I think we might be able to pull that off.

Bahram & Darice are telling secrets about their  new baby brother.

Basillia begins to make friends.

And finally, Balthasar becomes a toddler.  He is a  Gemini with 6 neat, 8 outgoing, 9 active, 4 playful & 5 nice.

Nothing else happened really except that Joey earned a gold badge in robotics.  He made a sentry bot.  I didn't take a single shot of Joey this round but he was there.

Round 6 - Holiday 2

  • Destin Holiday - Popularity / Family - permanently platinum - impossible want completed - Icon
  • Hedwig Busto Holiday - Popularity / Fortune - permanently platinum - impossible want completed - Education Minister
  • Bristol Holiday - child
  • Kissimmee Holiday - toddler

Last time:  Kissimmee was born, Bristol grew, Destin was abducted by aliens.

When we enter the lot there is not much going on.  So Bristol calls some friends.  Kissimmee contemplates ways to get up the stairs.

In no time she can just walk up the stairs.  Kissimmee is now a child.  She may need a makeover.

Later that night, while outside stargazing, Destin goes into labor.

He gives birth to an alien son.  We named him Vero Beach Holiday.  We'll call him Vero for short.

And once again, we have a baby in the house.  The nursery wasn't empty long at all.  And now Destin wants 10 kids.  SO not happening.

Bristol and Kissimmee are now sharing a room.  There is room for another twin bed.  Eventually we'll have to expand the house to add another bedroom.  There is room above the kitchen.  I just need to add floors and we're set.  I'll get to it someday.

Bristol Holiday becomes a Knowledge / Family sim.  He wants to follow in his mother's footsteps and become Education Minister.

Kissimmee gets her makeover. 

Bristol gets one too.  He must have liked it because he spent a large amount of time checking himself out afterwards.

Trying to figure out what to do with these two.  Destin tends to gravitate towards telescopes if you don't watch him.

I had forgotten I'd arranged for the headmaster to come over.  Bristol wants to get into private school.

The headmaster had his food wolfed down before Bristol even made it to the table.

Luckily the headmaster did grab a cup of joe so Bristol was able to talk to him for a minute or two.

Headmaster must have had a hot date.  He was in and out quickly.  The kids made it into private school.

With the headmaster about, I completely forgot about Vero's birthday.  Well, better late than never.

Vero is a cutie.  He is an Aries with 10 neat, 10 outgoing, 10 active, 5 playful and ZERO nice.  Yes, a true Holiday.

Bristol looks handsome in his school uniform.

Towards the end of the season, the kids started wanting to skill.

And that's all for the winter.

A great family to play.  My only problem is what to do with these adults.  They don't need to do anything.  Maybe I should just let them wonder.  Well I'll figure it out later.

Round 6 - Monterey 2

The Monterey Family are:

  • Janice Monterey Yessam - Family - Marry off 6 Kids - has four kids with first husband & 3 with second - 3 currently married
  • Rich Yessam - Popularity - become Mayor
  • Geron Monterey - Knowledge / Romance - Education Minister - just home from college
  • Starrie Night - Family - graduate 3 kids from college - future spouse of Geron
  • Caleb Yessam - Janice & Rich's youngest child
Last Time:  Twins Abigail & Zorah become teens and move to college, Caleb becomes a child.

After a little bit of blog reading, I think we're ready to do this thing.  Geron & Starrie look for jobs.  Geron takes a job as a ballroom dancer.  Starrie went for protector of whales.

Rich is up late working on his creativity.  The thing you have to love about Rich is how he always seems so happy.

It would have been a nice lazy Sunday morning.  But we have a family sim who needs children married.  Time to get with it children.

We invited all the Monterey's we could find.  In front is Nate Daymer, who is married to Dakota Monterey Daymer, the pregnant woman behind him.  Beside her is a cousin, Ambriel Monterey.  Behind her is Geron's twin brother Gabriel Monterey, who is currently pregnant with an alien child.  Way at the end is Jacqueline Monterey, Joey's wife.

On this side we have Angelique Monterey, a cousin.  Behind her is Jala Evans Monterey, Gabriel's wife.  Then there is Austin Monterey, the uncle.  Then Joey Monterey the oldest brother.  Finally is Ashley Burton Monterey, Austin's wife that shouldn't have been invited.  

As you may know, I never plan formal outfits.  I have to say that they look nice though.

We kept things simple.  Everyone just stood out in the yard.

Geron and Starrie are a three bolt couple so there was much pledging of eternal love.

And then it was done.  Congrats to Mr & Mrs Monterey.  Four down and just one set of twins in college to go.

I hadn't planned any entertainment.  The family took care of it for me.  Yes, now that I remember a bit better I have realize that Uncle Austin who had 30 loves shouldn't have been invited. 

Perhaps we can distract them with cake.  Cake?  Anyone?


Nope.  No time.  First we fight.  Then we gossip about the fight.

Oh good.  Gabriel had cake.  I don't want it all going to waste.

Those not fighting found other things to keep them entertained.  Ambriel found the water wiggler.  Good thing the snow hasn't started falling yet.

Joey and his wife fell in love.... again.  

 Kicky bag is always fun.

 The happy couple kept it simple.  First it was cake with a party crasher.

 Then they consummated the wedding.  The wedding party was great fun.  It was sad to see them go.  Ok, not really.

And so it begins.  How I love having enemies.

This is getting out of hand.

Geron has a gold robotic badge.  He he he.

So sad when you have to zap your elderly uncle who lives just across the street.

Caleb doesn't much like homework.

Janice learns anger management.  Now she know that she should only visualize putting her hands around someone's throat and squeezing ever so tight.  She should never actually do it.  Cause that would be wrong.  Unless he keeps knocking over the trash.  Then I'm sure it's justified.

Starrie is promoted to Hand of Poseidon.  She has topped her first career.

Starrie spent the afternoon arguing with a stranger.  Well, he shouldn't have walked by.  I wonder if he actually has that kind of pull?

Janice becomes an elder.

I gave her a makeover but I didn't actually touch her makeup.  That might have been a mistake.

Starrie has her first baby bump.  Baby one is on the way.

Starrie and Geron are such a cute couple.  They are thrilled to start their family.

 Some idiots never learn.

Janice is elected Mayor.  She tops her first and only career.

Geron tops the Natural Science career.  Dance gave him to many days off so he ditched it.  He still hasn't found his dream job in education.

Rich, well Rich didn't get promoted.  His wife got the job that should have been his.  Of course Rich is a happy go lucky sort of guy so it doesn't bother him.  He'll let her be Mayor for now.  

I remember Rich is a popularity sim so I have him wish for friends.  With these three, his total of best friends is up to 24.

With the winter so mild, Starrie begins setting up for a spring garden.

Ok, so maybe that wasn't such a good idea.

Starrie takes a job in the natural science field.  She walks to work, dispite her advanced pregnancy, and is promoted.  This is her second career topped.  She probably will stay with this one.

Rich is promoted to Mayor.  Janice wasn't doing a very good job.  This is Rich's first and only career topped.  It is also his lifetime want completed.

Just after 4 am, Starrie went into labor.

She gave birth to a little girl.  Meet Hannah Monterey.

Janice is thrilled to finally have a grandchild under her roof.

Later that day, Geron was promoted to Education Minister.  This is his second topped career and fulfills his lifetime want.

With the use of the family wishing well, Rich quickly reaches 30 best friends.

It was Caleb's birthday.  The family didn't have a party but he did have a cake.

Caleb Yessam becomes a family sim.  He longs to send three children to college.  Fun.

And that ends this round (season) at this Monterey family.  

Janice may retire soon.  Rich could take on a second career but it's unlikely.  Geron and Starrie have two more kids in their future.  Caleb will begin preparing for college.

I have really enjoyed playing these sims again.  I hope to keep this up.  Wish me luck.
