Welcome back to Arbor Watch! Summer’s here at last! I
almost half wish it was really summer. It’s New Year
Eve, and cold! Well not really that cold, but cold for
This first part of the chapter is not a happy one. *sobs*
Why Grimmy why are you taking Amber, I thought she
had more time????
I though she had at least until tonight. *sniffs* I guess
not, and there’s no bone phone yet either, *sobs*
Amber Vega, founder of Arbor Watch, beloved wife of
Komei Tellerman Vega, and mother of Abby Vega and
Sammie Jitmakusol. She left Komei $10,000, Abby got
$4,950, Sammie $5,000. Julien Cooke got $148 and Faith
Goodie got $108. Amber you were one of my coolest
sims, I’ll miss you a lot.
Elise is born! She has black hair? And blue eyes. Juan is
there something you aren’t telling me?
Komei rescues Elise off the floor and is very happy to see
his first grandchild…why are the dogs howling again?
Aww, come on Grimmy not Strength too. They just
Strength lived to be 32 days old and was the most like
Bane out of all the pups. Him and Faith were extremely
Despite the losses, Abby still has to get that spot in
Entertainment, who knows when it’ll come again.
And where there is death there is also life. I have Abby
and Juan try for another baby. I want to see if they can
produce a child with Abby’s eyes. I would hate to lose
them in only two generations.
After awhile Juan heads to Vega Tykes for a little bit. To
get away from the stillness of the house. He hired
William Vijayaker to work the register since Komei didn’t
want to come along.
Danielle Lillard gave Vega Tykes, rank 2 and then turned
around and got to rank 3. Go Danielle! Juan got his silver
sales badge as well.
And Jill Smith gave the store rank 4 just before Juan
closed up shop for the night. After restocking the entire
store by himself he got his bronze stocking badge.
Komei refuses to leave Elise alone. Everytime I need him
to do something he’s upstairs holding her or downstairs
giving her a bottle.
The Vegas all wanted another puppy, I’m going to hurt
them. But it’s an easy want to fill. So here’s Lady, the
only other female puppy. I would’ve gotten her even if
there had been others. Look at that curly fur.
Finally a long day is at an end. Abby climbs into bed
And as to get right back up again to tend to Elise. Poor
Abby, but she was the closest.
Day Two begins with cuteness. Faith has taken a liking to
Lady. Who I forgot to mention is named after my
beloved sheltie that passed away last spring. But don’t
be sad for Lady because she was in a lot of pain, it was
her time to go.
Juan checks the computer for jobs. And bingo, there’s a
spot in law enforcement. LTWs here we come.
And I found Juan’s dirty little secret. His brown hair is a
dye job. Gotta fix that.
Abby managed to pry Elise away from Komei for a little
bit. Enough time to bond with her little girl.
The moment I was dreading rolled around. Grimmy
came to get Faith. Well at least he won’t be coming back
any more this chapter.
I always felt like Faith was Strength twin. They were
always very close, even as puppies. She was a good mix
of Bane and Cleo. I’m not surprised she only made it a
day longer than Strength.
Komei and Juan decide to leave Elise with Abby and get
out of the house for a little while. Abby is now the
owner of Komei’s Klothes and I decided to remodel it a
bit. Since Komei couldn’t really make clothes on the
sewing machine efficiently enough for a store.
Komei takes care of selling while Juan mainly runs the
Juan and Komei stopped by Goodie Blooms on the way
home to get Abby flowers.
Juan takes a turn taking care of Elise. She’s going to be
so spoiled. Abby had to leave for her first day of work.
Leaving the boys to take care of the girl.
Elise is soon down for a nap and Komei is glued to his
sewing machine. He’s been rolling wants to sew a
project in between wanting another puppy. No
Komei, just no. Two is enough.
Juan doesn’t really have anything to do at home so I
send him up to his store. Where William promptly earns
Gretchen Chin gives Vega Tykes rank 5 yippee! And I
really need to put a ceiling on the store. So many sky
Juan gets the Best of the Best Award and a good review.
Despite not having an open air market like the rest of the
Abby came home with a promotion to Birthday Party
Mascot. Moving on up!
She popped on the sidewalk. Being at work delayed the
second trimester a few hours. I’m excited Abby’s going
to have another baby. And I might have had a liter of Dr.
Pepper. Just maybe…I might be hyper because of it, just
I changed Juan’s hair to its natural black. There will be
no dye jobs. You’ll have your natural hair color and like
Day Three and Komei is up before the sun as usual.
Though it’s actually kind of nice this time because I don’t
have to wake up Abby or Juan to take care of Elise.
They still have Abby’s baby swing. Isn’t Elise cute? I love
It’s Elise’s birthday. So Komei goes to More Than Food to
buy a birthday cake.
Juan spends most of the morning talking on the phone
to friends to keep relationships up. I’m really bad about
I decided to dive in and throw a birthday party for Elise.
Phil and Sammie were invited as well as the Smithes and
the Goodies. The Plan is in motion :D. Ethan and Lilly
brought their older kids with them as well. But Cassie
Of course Faith and Herbert spend the whole time being
sappy. I love Faith’s expression in this picture.
Oh I forgot about Ruth, whoops. I purposely held Elise’s
birthday party off until Saturday so Ruth could come.
Elise could of aged up Day two. I just figured I’d throw
the birthday party before six. Anyways cake time!
Aww, I love her dress. I like the way she turned out.
While she’s not exactly a favorable mix of her parents
genetics, but she’s very unique looking.
Sammie and Phil feel they need to out do Faith and
Herbert’s public displays of affection.
And smart milk is yummy. Elise really needs to go potty
hopefully Abby can get the smart milk ready in time.
Abby didn’t quite get to Elise in time, but I still made
Elise drink the smart milk. Komei changed Elise’s diaper
and tucked her into bed while the party continued on
Faith immediately fell in love with the puppies. She
wouldn’t leave Gabie alone for more than a minute.
Once she stopped sucking Herbert’s face off.
Toward the end of the party Abby popped into her third
Mostly to the sheer number of people invited and
cake, the party was a roof raiser. Awesome, I normally
don’t make it past Good Time.
It’s finally Juan’s first day of work as a security guard. His
hours will bleed over into Sunday a little, but other than
making him call in sick on his first day, there’s not really
anything I can’t do about it.
Abby’s asleep upstairs, but Elise is wide awake. Thank
goodness for Komei still being around to help out. He
adores his granddaughter.
For some reason Benedict is still hanging around after
the party has been over for several hours. Cleo is up to
mischief trying to scare Komei into wetting himself. Not
Bane is out and about too. Hopefully to keep Cleo from
causing too much trouble. There’s been enough of
Grimmy in this chapter Cleo!
At midnight on Day Four Komei potty trains Elise and
tucks her into bed. He then goes to bed himself, since
Cleo scared the living daylights out of him.
At three in the morning Russ Bear decides he needs to
be Arbor Watch’s first burglar.
I woke Abby up to stop him and call the cops, but she
kept freaking out. Russ ran around the house stealing
Komei’s homemade quilts. Because apparently there’s
huge black markets for quilts.
See he stole the green quilt in the dining. Russ you
Komei finally is able to call the cops. Not sure if using
emergency services is allow. But what the hay, Juan’s in
the law enforcement career.
Demi shows up to fight! She actually wins the fight, but
then the game glitched and Russ got to run away
Komei gets to work on replacing the stolen quilts. I still
can’t believe that Russ stole quilts. Can you imagine
going back to the robber hide out with quilts?
Despite the night’s upset, it’s Family Day. Sammie, Phil
and Ben are all invited over for the day.
Genie lamp!!! The Vegas finally got another genie
lamp!!! I made sure to save after I got it. I may not have
Bella, the dog who liked to shut off my
computer, anymore, but I’m not taking any chances. At
least Hanna doesn’t really go under my desk. She does
other things, like steal my pillow *glares at innocently
She only looks all cute and innocent. She’s a
pillow thief I tell ya! I guess to go with the quilts
Back to the Vegas, Abby commands Hannah to have
puppies with Ben. I know I’m just asking to go insane.
But I wanted to see what the puppies would look like.
Speaking of looks. Here’s Gabie all grown up, she looks
like Hannah turned into a greyhound. Now make best
friends with Sumo so there’ll be more puppies!
And Alexander is born just in time to have his first birthday on Day
Five. You can’t see them but he has Amber’s eyes. Yay! He has
black hair too, but will hopefully have the recessives for red. He’ll
be the heir to the Vega house. As much as I love Elise, I want to get
the custom genetics in the family. But she’ll get to found her own
house like her Aunt Sammie.
Look it’s Strength to turn to haunt! So much sooner
than usual. I wish you could interact with the ghost
more like in the sims 3. But at least we get to see them.
And Day Five begins with pancakes. Yum! Abby shares
her father’s loved for fluffy goodness. Cereal is still
much better, if you’re wondering.
Much like how he was with Elise, Komei can’t get
enough of Alexander. Put the boy down Komei he needs
It’s Reno Day at last. I finally replaced the fridge in the
kitchen to a better one. I think I’ll leave it the way it is
otherwise. It’s a cozy little kitchen.
I redid the upstairs a bit too. We’ll just tactfully ignore
the ACR romp going on in the bedroom. How did I not
notice that earlier, gross. Anyway the upstairs became a
second family room. Full of skilling things and slightly
worn furniture. Like what you would find in the attic
kind of stuff.
I actually remembered to landscape a little this time too.
Not sure if it’s going to stay like this. But I made the
porch a little bigger for the dogs and made the swingset
bigger for Elise and Alexander.
And Lady grew up into a black and brown poodle.
Bawahaha. Poor Lady. I’m sorry I know the functionality
of a poodle cut but I find it hilarious. I wasn’t expecting
that with the curly fur.
It’s double birthday time for Alexander and Elise.
Alexander is first up.
Gosh he is cute. With those big blue eyes and that
outfit. He looks a lot like his dad, but enough of Abby to
soften the features a little. He’s 6/10/9/4/6.
First things first, fill the child with smart milk!
Aww, I luffs her. She’s definitely not the cutest thing, but
she’s very unique. The hair suits her, but I think I’m still
going to change it. Ruth has that hair cut. So does
Amanda Cooke. And of course I failed to get a picture of
Oh hi there Amber. Checking on your grandbabies? I’m
sorry you didn’t get to see them first hand. But your
looking good for a ghost.
