I only updated yesterday, I know, but I was keen to play some Reagans, so we get another update.
We open with Elaine and Merlin going in to the rocket for privacy.
Carlos is… autonomously working out?
Elaine tells a very expressive story in her space suit, and Steve is a bit freaked out.
It’s been all night and Elaine is still in the space suit.
Fond memories, Elaine? *waggles eyebrows*
Well, that’s the end of the space suit then.
Cecil: Hey, Reagan readers. Did you miss my beautiful self?
I’m not sure we were given time to miss you.
Cecil: Of course you did.
Cecil: Mummy, can I move back in? I don’t know how to look after myself, I set fire to the kitchen.
Elaine: We only just got rid of you.
Wow. What a nice mother.
Cecil: Why can’t I sit in that seat that my father was just in and is blocking the way of? I want to sit there. Not the other five vacant seats, three of which I have perfect access to!
Elaine is now an elder.
And Cecil was singing in the middle picture, it was really cute.
I gave Elaine a new look.
Uh… Carlos? Hello? Carlos?
Carlos: … Did I fall asleep?
How on earth do you stay up, Merlin?
Just doing some sit ups on the kitchen floor.
It’s birthday time again.
Not Merlin, though.
Steve goes first for no particular reason.
He grew up with the trait hates children, so I guess it’s a good thing he’s not our TH. His other trait is creative. He also now has the aspiration fabulously wealthy.
Next is Kevin. He grew up with the Art Lover trait, and his aspiration is Nerd Brain. His child trait was Squeamish.
Then is Carlos for his YA birthday. He grew up with the trait Family-Oriented. His other two traits are Neat and Glutton, and his aspiration is Outdoor Enthusiast.
Those pictures maybe don’t show it the best, but the top is Kevin and the bottom is Steve. There is actually a bit of difference between them. Steve is a bit slimmer in the body and the face, and Steve has pointed ears. Also, I think Steve’s eyes are closer together than Kevin’s. And I think they have different noses, too.
Also, I was just playing around and discovered something interesting.
This is Kevin with naturally red hair.
And this is Steve with naturally blonde hair.
I’m not keepng hair on them, I just thought it was interesting.
Anyway, I dressed Kevin into ‘human’ clothes for every outfit, and Steve has the alien outfit for every outfit.
Carlos getting some coffee is the last picture we get of him before I moved him out to the spare household.
Aww, some brotherly love.
Dana: I’m back!
Comparison picture. See, they are different? I’m not crazy, am I?
Most noticeable is the ears though.
I think Kevin also has a smaller mouth?
Dana: Yeah, this place is the same.
You’ve barely been gone!
Steve has some hard earned (?) relaxatin in the sauna.
Kevin: Is that my twin brother wandering around the house in just his towel.
Confidence is a Reagan family trait, apparently.
Check out Merlin’s snazzy work uniform.
Elaine came home from work angry.
Elaine: Let me retire.
This is Merlin’s first masterpiece painting.
Like his older brother and stepmother, Steve takes to napping on the bench in the backyard.
See? Confidence runs in this family.
I would have thought that someone who just got promoted to the top of their career would look a bit happier.
This rocketship is awesome.
Is that the best thing to swim in? I probably should have at least given him proper swimming togs.
Elaine: Let me retire.
Merlin: You have one hot husband.
Elaine: I sure do.
I spotted Morgana going past the house quite morose.
Multiple spares turning up in their party outfits. It must be party time.
Merlin is now an Elder. They grow up so fast. *sniff*
Ahh, I love seeing the family together.
Aww, Morgana is still sad 😦
I don’t get enough pictures at parties, I’m so focused trying to get a gold medal. Which is hard in an ISBI when things involve multiple people and I can only control one. Making a toast is very difficult.
Bye Gwaine, you’re welcome over anytime, I just won’t be able to let you inside.
Cecil stays after the party is over to play some chess.
And that’s it for this update. There were so many birthdays, but it’s really weird having a small household again. Only four sims. Ah well. That’ll change soon enough.
