When we last visited the Cultric household, it was winding down to get back to normal. Vinny had his head back in the game and spent time with his kids, the twins finally had their first day of school, baby Elizabetta was working on her toddler skills, Karla became a full fledged adult, and Vincenzo planned an ultra romantic Love Day for his darling wife.
Hi there readers! zefiewings here and with him as always is Garth! Or wait…Karla…
Karla and I are taking on a journey of whimsy and plumbobs and the sims there in. We plan to integrate many different cultures in the sims world and make them a legacy. So thinking about it the children of the last generation are going to be MUTTS. Really they will be everything.
And its a new year, my fourth rotation of seasons! Can you believe it?!
Also I got a really huge surprise today when I saw that a new blog I was reading gave me a shout out in her intro! I was so honnered!
Seriously though, her name is Heather. Go check out her legacy. It’s an ISBI-Alphabetcy and its hilarious. She has inspired me with a few ideas that I can’t wait to implement but I am very far behind with writing so it will be a while before you see it.
Anyway, her blog is the Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy and you should go read it. HERE
Back on track…remember the super sweet Love Day dinner that Vinny made Karla (that I just recapped four seconds ago)? That had another awesome side effect!
Karla is just about done mastering her handiness, but I am still unsure what the third skill should be.
You know…I tried hitting a clogged sink with a hammer once. It did not help my situation.
This is about the point that, while reading other blogs, I came to a decision. I love when people talk about how when their sims do things autonomously like hug their kids or flirt with their spouse. So I decided, fairly begrudgingly, to turn free will on. Its difficult for me. I have control issues. My sims are almost always happy and with high lifetime reward points. I don’t want to mess with my system! But I will do it, I will try. And I am hoping will show me the last skill she wants to master with her new found free will.
Ummm…so I can hear you. What do you mean you are only JUST giving us free will?! We didn’t have free will?
And this is mildly awkward and I am not even sure why I wrote it. Moving on.
I already had these boys playing together. So what is the first thing the family does on free will?
All the siblings join in and Dad reads on the couch to be with them. It was the most precious thing. I get it now, I get the fuss. So I will struggle through the change in play style so I can have this in my game.
Tony: “Wow! I am rubbish at this game 😀 ”
Then why are you smiling?
Look what else sweet happened! Everyone eating dinner together! Okay… so they often eat together because of the ‘call to meal’ interaction. But Betta is eating with them too! She is usually on a very different eating schedule.
Look! More cutie family moments! The kiddies are playing together while Karla watches carefully while rocking her baby! I just find it so cute.
Speaking of cute, Claudia watches her dad cook for a minute then decides to join him. This is literally the first time this has ever been used because I never remember to bother with it.
She finished and sat it down at the table but didn’t eat it. She thought of her dad. I’ve never seen a sim child not eat their own baking. There was only one way to interpret this action.
It was a gift for her Daddy!
“Thank you sweetie! This is delicious! You will grow up to be a fantastic cook one day when you sparkle up tall enough to reach the stove!”
It was actually pretty good quality considering she has never cooked. I’m shocked its not burned.
This meal meal is worth a million simoleons.
Oh my goodness. That face. Is it a little hot?
Maybe Vinny shouldn’t make that anymore?
Or no wait…she got a good nice spicy moodlett from it so I guess it works out.
That’s sweet of you to play with your sister Tony. Betta…that is not as nutritious as your Daddy’s cooking I think.
Man there is a lot of eating going on this page.
