Caliente-Dina Round 9- House 3

Here we are back at the first Caliente home. Dina of course is no longer with us and her husband, former Mr Big Magnus is getting on in years too. He just received inheritance from Brandi Broke. In the background you see his daughter-in-law Monica (formerly Bratford).

Magnus and his sons Vito and Mario had a wish to visit a community lot for clothes and jewellery as well as the outing itself.

Vito, who is Monica's husband wished to hustle pool. He beat his ol' dad who had also wanted to win!

Once back home Vito enjoyed singing a nursery rhyme with his daughter Maria.

Magnus wished for a date- he took his long time friend Jordan out and they quickly fell in love as per Marcus' wishes.

His wishes saw him propose engagement but no further wishes appear to cement the relationship.

Nature loving Monica wished to catch a Golden Trout.  She struck lucky after some time at the pond.

She got another good wish fulfilled later that night, ;)

Magnus likes to stargaze with the telescope while downstairs Mario enjoys stargazing on the ground.

Meanwhile Arianna's ghost came out. You remember she was Mario's twin and died as a teen during a house fire.

Thankfully Mario did at least wish to see a ghost.

Unlike his sister-in-law who got quite a shock when she went to use the toilet!

Magnus invited Angela Pleasant over, they soon made friends.

her daughter Amaya was getting on well with Mario.

Magnus later wished to invite over and play with Jordan.

He got a little jealous I think when he found Mario and Jordan having a pillow fight.

Mario too was jealous as like his father he has a 3 bolt attraction to Jordan.

Magnus waited until Mario was at work until he fulfilled his wish to woohoo with Jordan.

When Mario got home he bought a friend with him who also witnessed little Maria growing up.
 
She cheered at her little makeover and headed straight to a ballet barre followed by some skipping. Looks like she inherited her Dad and Uncle's love of fitness.
 
As Maria grew up Monica spun into Maternity wear. Yes risky is working overtime again. Monica served up the delicious Golden Trout she'd caught earlier.
 
Vito wished to train the cats. Darcy and Liza are producing kittens who are being sent to the shelter for next time someone wishes to 'raise 20'. :)
 
Mario enjoyed a make out session with his work buddy.
 
He also got invited on a date with Jordan!
 
and a second date which ended very well indeed!
 
Just when you think the household can't expand anymore and Liza has another couple of kittens.
 
Maria brought Charlie Hanby home from school and they enjoyed a game of Mary Mack.
 
Everyone was home to witness the birth of Magnus' first Grandson, Eduardo.
 
Like his sister Maria he too inherited Grandma Dina's blonde hair.
 
Magnus always wanted to meet someone new and was often seen running to greet walkby neighbours.
 
This was a bit of a strange one considering that Mortimer Goth died in round 1. :D
 
Magnus threw a party and had as many friends over as he could invite.
 
It was a double celebration as Eduardo celebrated becoming a toddler.
 
Vito spent much of the time teaching his son new skills.
 
Before Eduardo settled down to some serious playing at the activity table with his sister.
 
On Sunday night Magnus got his final cocktail and suitcase and headed off with the hula girls to the great party in the sky.
 
Farewell Magnus. He left a nice inheritance. He was 83.

Summary,

Magnus- Always enjoyed playing him, he loved parties, meeting new people, dancing, stargazing and hustling pool. His interest in Jordan was such that I considered marrying them should he spin the wish but he did not.

Vito- Vito wished to hustle pool, learn couples counselling, earn cash, train the kitties and teach his son skills.

Monica- most wishes revolved around nature with fishing leading the way. She wished to woohoo, be top of career (Dance), which she completed also this week. She also reached the top of her Lifetime Aspiration metre.

Mario- first wish was to make a best friend, his wishes were torn between pleasure and knowledge. tell jokes, make friends, see ghosts. He enjoyed several dates but none more than the dates with Jordan. It will be interesting next round to see if anything progresses there.

Maria- Toddler for a time then as a child wished to skip, dance and play at the ballet barre as well as earning a skill or two.

Eduardo- still a toddler with usual wishes.

Darcy and Liza had 3 kittens this week, Charlotte, Forster and Kitty who were all adopted by the agency.

Goth- Round 9- House 2

Welcome to round 9 at the Goth house! In residence are twins Campbell and Hans, Hans' wife Ivy (Copur), their twins Wednesday and Fuller and their younger son Morgan. Ivy is pregnant again.
 
Loved up couple Hans & Ivy are always wishing to kiss or date so it's fairly easy to keep fulfilling their wishes.
 
Hans got a nice bonus from work, not that this family really need any more money but bragging rights are always good.
 
Ivy gave birth to a third son, Mardy. You might have noticed that her hair is different from the last round- when I re-installed I guess I didn't have her former style saved. heh. I wonder if Ivy can get through an entire round without getting pregnant/giving birth?
 
Knowledge sim Ivy always wants to learn something and a bronze badge in Fishing was a good boost for her.
 
Meanwhile 'cool' Uncle Campbell was invited on an outing. His LTW was to have 50 first dates if you remember which he achieved already. Pleasure loving Campbell just wants a good time. Unfortunately as he was flirting with his professor friend ex-lover Nina Caliente spotted him...
 
ouch! She may be collecting her pension but Nina will always be a hot-head.
 
Campbell thought he could make it up to Nina with a spot of Public Woohoo but she was having none of it. She actually kicked him out of the booth (never seen that before!)... which is how he ended up on his backside!
 
Yeah, that's going to be an entire round of kicked over trash and stolen newspapers.
 
The next day it was time for little Mardy to grow up. Big brother Fuller did the honours while Morgan watched on.
 
Then it was Morgan's turn to become a teenager.
 
Sooo like his Uncle!
Morgan rolled Family and his LTW is to reach his Golden Anniversary.
 
As the house was getting a bit packed Wednesday and Fuller (who still held the wishes) decided to grab scholarships and a taxi out of the 'hood to head to college. Cya in the dorm kids.
 
 
That night was the first time Mortimer's ghost had been out for some time.
 
He scared the bejesus out of Campbell who'd been doing a spot of stargazing (which he always does autonomously).
 
It didn't deter him though and the next night he found himself whisked away into outer space...
 
He soon showed his pregnancy and once Mardy had become a toddler Campbell helped fulfil training wishes.
He doesn't look too excited about it does he?
 
Oh look, Cassandra and Nicholas have come out to haunt...
 
They head straight for their old bedroom. While Cassandra amuses herself filling and emptying the bathtubs and turning on the tv and stereo's Nicholas has neater things on his mind...
 
like making beds...
 
and taking out the trash.
Have you ever seen such a neat ghost?! The house misses neat-freak Nicholas so it's nice that he came out to tidy up. Shame he didn't clean the toilets and bathtubs but you can't have it all... :)
 
Cassandra gave poor Ivy quite a fright whilst Nicholas was busy cleaning.
 
Morgan brought Sally Oldie-Hanby home from school and they swapped stories about hobbies.
 
He decided to change into one of the home made outfits.
 
Ivy and Hans wanted their son to attend private school but I'm not sure anyone bargained on Campbell regaling the headmaster with sordid details of his love life. The Head looks fairly shocked.
 
The Head could not refuse such a well-off family but couldn't believe when Hans & Ivy behaved so inappropriately in front of him. They got a great boost of aspiration anyway and the Head left whilst muttering something about showing himself out...
 
Morgan knuckled down and got some skills, reached the top of his teenage career and is working on scholarships for the college wish that rolls in and rolls out.
 
Hans doesn't often want to cast spells (not the most industrious of warlocks) but enjoys cleaning up the leaves with a nifty spell when the compost bins are too full to use.
 
Ivy gained yet another badge, a Gold one in toymaking. She's just like a sponge soaking up all the knowledge she can.
 
ooh, the game panned over to Campbell writhing around in pain,
 
haha, it never gets old. Campbell welcomed his alien son Pluto into the world.
 
Maybe he should avoid going into the garden and bumping into Audrey's ghost. She is still mad about being eaten by the cowplant. Silly hotel maid should've gone home after that date shouldn't she?!
 
Giving birth is tiresome and Campbell went out on the first offer he had.
 
He sang some rowdy songs, worked the karaoke and generally had a great outing with his buddies.
 
Meantime Ivy helped little Pluto grow up.
 
But Campbell came home in time to teach his son how to talk.
 
The week comes to an end with little Mardy becoming a child cheered on by his parents, brother and brother's friend from school. Well 4's a party they say, :)
 
 
 
Summary,
 
So Ivy did make it through a round without becoming pregnant again, yay.
She wished to learn this round which took precedent over dating her husband.
 
Hans was content fulfilling his nature related wishes as well as using the occasional spell.
 
Campbell was fun this week, in between outings and being abducted he was the busiest Sim. He still found time (somehow) for his Tinkering hobby and was regularly in the garden flying helicopters, working on his train set and his car.
 
Morgan has enough skills for college and may go next time if he still has the wish.
 
We'll find out what Mardy likes to do next time and see little Pluto grow up again.
