The Fifth Season: Spring Cooke By: CanImarryapony Arbor Watch: A BACC!
It's the Cookes turn in the rotation. As you can see, there's a couple new blank lots. One is for the Cookes their house is way too small and the other is for a new family.
Last rotation Sandy gave birth to twins, Amanda and Julian. And of course day one starts with dirty diapers.
Sandy once again shows her awesome mothering skills. I hope I don't jinx it, but still hasn't rolled a change diaper fear.
As soon as the twins were settled, Julien started in on baking so he could go up to the store.
I love Sandy and Julien, they're so awesome together.
More than Food is flooded with people the moment Julien opens the store. They really like Baked Alaska and birthday cakes.
Emmy got her bronze register badge and Julien gave her a raise from $27 an hour to $34. I want to make that kind of money for cashiering.
I love social networking Vyn Scott gave Julien the expensive computer. * sells * Maybe this week they'll actually be able to afford a new house and a dog or two.
Julien calls it a day about sixish and heads home.
Julien replants the garden now that spring is here. He picked up his bronze gardening badge somewhere and now can plants more veggies. Strawberries are the best.
The twins are finally asleep at the same time so I let Sandy and Julien have a little alone time. Which brings yet another lullaby. Sandy may like kids now, but she's going to be driven crazy in a few days.
I've never seen a sim do this, Julien is lecturing Sandy for breaking the toilet, poor Sandy she looks so ashamed.
I traded out their old fridge for a new spiffy one so I won't have to replace it every day after Julien's done baking.
Day one ends as it begins, taking care of the babies.
Proof of Sandy's new pregnancy, this house is going to be as crowded as the other one. I'm such a glutton for punishment.
Eww you'd think sims would be a little more concerned about sanitation. Julien's baking while Sandy is cleaning the toilet.
Julien fills up his inventory and heads off to work, which apparently means playing in puddles. Though it would be fun to play in puddles at work. I shall talk to my boss about this.
I should say something about the customers, but I can't help but wonder why the halfbuilt snowman hasn't melted yet. It's day two of spring and it's still there.
Julien closes up around 6ish and the business is up to level three. Yay.
Back home, Julien and Sandy have a quickly lunch of leftover omelettes.
Finally it's birthday time for the twins. Amanda's up first.
Well she's didn't get Sandy's mouth, but really? The tux. She's a girl for crying out loud. Her stats are: 5/6/4/10/4
Julan's next. With blue cake. Because blue tastes awesome.
Julien is a basic clone of his sister, but they're twins so it's some what acceptable. His stats are the same as his sister”s.
I now officially hate this bathroom, it's ver hard to take pictures in here. Anyways Sandy starts potty training the kids early.
Julien and Sandy are sickeningly sweet. They have a quick date before heading to bed.
And thus ends Day Two. I'll be honest here. I haven't nessicarily follow all my rules and have gotten behind in writing. Anyhow, the real point is I didn't take as many pictures as I thought I did and the narrative's a bit thin here. Sorry, not really, okay I guess I am a bit sorry.
Day three is a great deal full of screaming. I love twins every howling minute. Poor Julian wants to have some fun that doesn't involve learning.
Julien calls in reinforcements, poor Sandy is having a hard second pregnancy and Julien has to run off to work.
Julien didn't manage to make enough of his baked goodies to restock his shelves. More than Food actually got a kitchen for a little bit. Though for some reason the fridge seemed to think Julien only had one cooking point and wouldn't let him make anything but jello.
Julien closes the store at six and fills the shelves with what he has. More than Food is officially a level 4 business. Yay!
On the way home Julien stops buy Komei's Klothes and picks up a teddy bear for the kiddlets.
Sandy pops belly bump number two shortly after going to bed. I can't seem to find the picture of the first one. Hm..
I have to hand it to Sandy. Even pregnant and on the verge of passing out, she does the bulk of taking care of the twins.
Toddler Spam is good for the soul. Julian managed to be potty trained and Sandy taught Amanda how to talk, but I forgot to take a picture. Both twins manage to scrape up a few creativity and logic points.
Not only does Sandy take care of the kids, she cleans and gardens while she's at it. Day four is Sunday so Julien's inside baking away, while Sandy takes care of the household chores.
Close to midnight, Sandy gets up to give birth.
Jay joins the Cooke family at last. Why do I need another J name, I think I'm going insane. Jay has black hair and blue eyes like his siblings.
Day Five at last! This rotation it's moving day instead of Reno day. Their house is just too small for everybody.
Nice, just leave Jay on the ground. The Cookes move across town to Bocker Block St. To a nice big empty lot.
Say hello to their new house. They're a little short on funds so it's just the basics. I still kept a thousand or so back so they could take Fierce.
Not much, but it's something. I send Julien off to work so he can earn some moolah to fix this. I want windows.
When Julien and Sandy got to the store I realixed I hadn't used the two business perks they earned. I cashed both in on the money tree giving them $15,000 to go home with.
I did spend a little of the money on the store. Nope I did remodel the whole bathroom, I just put in the new doors. Both doors lead into the same bathroom, how's that for confusing.
Here's the new and improved Cooke House. I made the kitchen bigger and added a second bathroom. Still a lot of work to be done though.
The poor twins are exhausted, I didn't put in cribs for them because it's their birthday anyways and it would be pointless.
First up is Amanda, I swear I had a cake picture, I guess not. Here she is.
Next is Julian, after a fight to get him to stay awake long enough.
Julien I'm not sure that face is apportiate for your son growing up. Not to bad choices of clothing for the twins. And they still look exactly alike.
Jay sleeps through it all. That's it for the Cooke, next up is the Smithe family as I break yet another rule.
