Later that night, Kyle had his birthday, which was a surprise because everyone, including himself, had forgotten about it. This was likely a defense mechanism though it didn't save him from old age.
He is one of the best looking old Sims I've seen, likely because he didn't end up losing his full head of hair.
Later that week, Christina brought home a kitten she named Jasmine. A friend from school had extra and so she decided to adopt one (without asking her parents).
Christina was lucky that Jasmine was a cutie or else her parents would have thrown a fit. Everyone was excited to welcome a new family member and they went out to buy cat supplies.
She's so tiny! I love cats :-)
At the end of the week, Emily (pictured above) and Minnie graduated from high school. Unfortunately it was a horrifically rainy day, so nice graduation pictures were nearly impossible.
Emily, the overachiever, was the class Valedictorian and was voted most artistic. She also received a ribbon from winning an art contest. Minnie on the other hand, merely graduated. You can imagine the resentment that followed.
Once they got home, all the girls posed pretty in their formal wear. In order: Sandra, Christina, Minnie, Emily.
When the whole family posed for pictures, Lexie's heart was filled with joy knowing that she and Kyle created all this happiness from literally nothing.
The gnomes had their own celebration in the backyard. I don't remember how I got the witch gnome, but I bought the Mech Gnome (middle with red helmet) and the Caveman Gnome at the consignment store. Sandra made the Magical Gnome of Invention.
Right after pictures, the oldest girls headed to their new garden in their dress clothes and shoes. It seems they were too excited to change.
And also in his dress clothes, Daniel went outside to play.
The first potion Daniel has learned is Bladder Flow. He mixed it into a drink for Macy.
"I've got something for you," Daniel chuckled, handing her the bladder flow mixture.
Macy, being extremely trusting and naive, drank it thinking nothing of his snickering.
Shortly thereafter, Macy wet herself and Daniel laughed with malice at her embarrassment. He doesn't have the evil trait but he sure seemed to get a lot out of pranking her.
Poor Macy was humiliated and started to cry. And here's the weird part...
Minnie came over to scold Daniel for being so cruel, even though he's the only one who can see Macy (this really happened in-game and it makes no sense, I know).
He was lucky that Minnie let him off the hook so easily. He's the baby of the family and pretty good at manipulation.
My name is Sarah and I've been playing the Sims since Sims 1 was born. I am a therapist/counselor by day and a gamer by night, and a mommy always (my son is 6).
