It looks like PT9 has invented a brand new way of swinging a child around. Suppose it’s an alien thing… :D
Speaking of PT9 Smith; he wasn’t having much time left, which I just couldn’t bear for some reason. It would feel really sad to see him go without having met at least one grandchild. So once again the elexir of life comes in handy - I have used it a lot in this Strangetown!
Another slow and peaceful night at the Smiths…
Jim does his homework, PT and Jenny are as much in love as always and Julia starts to discover how much fun winter can be. :)
Jill arrives back from school with her boyfriend Buck, and the two of them get the chance to hang out for the first time in quite a while.
Jim invites Tommy home from school this day too and it seems they have already become best buddies. :)
At least for now, Julia prefers to hang out with her dad - she really is a daddy’s girl!
The twins have had a long and exciting day and are now starting to get pretty exhausted. But before everyone (except for Jill who is a night owl) goes to bed, Jenny helps her son with his homework. After several hours outside, Jill is eventually forced to go inside for a long bubble bath.
PT and Jenny have a much better bed nowadays and don’t have to sleep as long anymore. The extra time their new bed gives them is much needed: To give Pandora a bath is still a time consuming nightmare! xD
The kids start to arrive back from school…
Jill, who wants to improve her charisma skills, decides to ignore the coldness and to use the snow-capped Execuputter.
A few hours later the twins arrive home as well. Jim has brought Tommy Ottomas home and even though Tommy is much older, they appear to have a lot in common. Tommy’s interest in aliens probably helps too. :D
Julia, who didn’t invite anyone over from school, asks PT for some help with her homework.
The twins grew up at the end of previous round, so today will be their very first schoolday. Jim is a hyperactive kid who spend the morning bonding with Pandora the dog, while his twinsister Julia prefers to sleep as long as possible.
When all three kids have left, PT9 and Jenny enjoy their first childfree breakfast/lunch in quite a while together. :)
The twins are trying to get used to being children. Suddenly they can eat whatever they want, use the computer, call other sims and do pretty much anything by themselves. That freedom is of course awesome, but also a bit hard getting used to.
Some hours after the twins’ transitions, Pandora arrives back from her work - fired, due to an unsuccessful chance card! Jim feels really sorry for her and tries his best to cheer her up.
All the swimming gives result, but Jill think she might have become a bit too skinny… She wants muscles! :D
Later that day, Jim and Julia celebrate their brithdays.
They got makeovers, but unfortunately no new clothes - my Smith family has very little cash reserves at the moment. Good thing both aged up into pretty decent clothes for a change though! :D
The sunday morning starts much like the saturday morning did - with a kitchen fire. This time Jenny is the guilty, so poor Jill didn’t get to sleep late anytime during this weekend…
Winter finally arrives for real, and just a couple of hours after the first snow was seen, the whole lot is covered with snow. Jill is a brave kind though and doesn’t mind taking a swin despite the cold weather. :D
Pandora arrives home with a promotion, but she still hates the car with passion. :D
Jill manages to avoid the cops, and after a long great night out with Buck, she arrives back home. Before going to bed she makes sure her younger siblings have everything they need. :)
Jenny & Petty enjoy some quality time together, entirely unaware of the plan their daugther has for the night…
(I wonder where Buck got that limousine! :D)
Jim was hitten hard by the kitchen fire, so the family members do their best to cheer him up. Having a child grow up badly would feel like a huge failure for PT and Jenny. They are all about justice too, so Julia still gets just as much attention as her brother. :)
Jill and PT play a game of FIFA together, and it appears PT does much better than Jill, much to Jill’s annoyance.
It’s starting to get cold outside, but still no snow, so Jill and Pandora take the opportunity to have some fun outdoors.
The Smith family’s garden is a huge mess at the moment (since their gardener is incapable of doing her job due to how uneven their lawn is). It’s a little bit ironic, since the Smiths are supposed to love their garden and to take pride in keeping it nice and tidy…
Jenny takes a short trip Downtown to buy some new clothes (I must have deleted her old when I was cleaning my DL-folder).
Despite the previous failure, PT gets renewed trust and this time he successfully makes himself an omelette. Jill woke up much earlier than she was expecting because of the fire alarm, but at least it allows her to eat breakfast together with her dad for once. :D
