The Webbs: Round 4 / Que Sera, Sera

Whew, I finally have a title. It's sad when the title keeps you scratching your head for ideas relatively longer than the rest of the post. :P

Clinton finds the narrowest hallway in the house, and right at the top of the staircase gives birth.

Clinton is freaked out just like the last time he gave birth, but it being June, there is no snow outside to hide the baby in.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That's okay, I think this time he's learned that green babies are pretty special. After all, Taft is a great kid.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Meet baby boy Washington!

Grace is promoted to Senior College Professor. She brings home Rose from work, which is unusual since Rose is a student. I guess she has a volunteer job on campus that I was unaware of.

Grace and Reagan's birthdays are nine days apart, so they celebrate together.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Reagan thinks of a wish. Make it a good one, kid. Maybe a new hairstyle would be a thought. How about wishing not to be a romance sim?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace is preoccupied with her own birthday wish, and doesn't see Reagan's teen transformation.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I think Reagan's quite pretty - a nice combination of both parents' genetics.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And she is a pleasure sim. I won't complain because it could be worse.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace turns 54, and still looks pretty, although her outfit...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace must have access to the pool at Académie Le Tour, which is why she's chosen to wear a swimsuit with pants, so she can always be prepared for a swim.

I guess the police department frowns upon The Swat Team Leader wearing the disco clown costume to work. I guess I should have seen this one coming.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Clinton takes his demotion at work much better than expected, and looks excessively proud of himself. He even says it's been a good week, and he hopes he can keep this up. What, a daily demotion? So much for his Lifetime Want of becoming Captain Hero.

Wilson brought home Jessica Ajjanagadde, who is his first love.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I think she's adorable, and apparently he does too.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He even got his first kiss.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace does the honors of growing up her little stepson? Washington.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And he is an interesting-looking toddler. Those ears are particularly unusual, being tiny, yet oddly shaped. Daniel Brown arrives to perform an exorcism on the little guy. Daniel, the kid is green because he's a half alien, not because he's possessed. Anyway, I thought you were a cult leader. What's with wearing the exorcist outfit 24/7?

I know I'm awful buying a pet bed for Washington, especially since there isn't the excuse that they have a pet. It's just so easy, though. It's especially great in this house because the crib is all the way upstairs. I think this is better than what happened to poor Sophie Fletcher who had to scream bloody murder to get let out of her crib. That's probably why she cackles today - damage to her vocal chords.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Washington glows an even brighter green than most toddlers. This toy is his favorite, as he discovers very early that science is his one true hobby.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Clinton changes his mind again and happily gets promoted back to Swat Team Leader. You know, maybe it was the leftover pregnancy hormones that were making him so crazy and indecisive when he got demoted.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace receives a promotion, and heads straight for the showers, presumably to rinse off the chlorine. She must be spending all her work time at the campus pool now, so I have no idea why they promoted her, except that she has tenure.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It's time for Taft to become a teen.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And she's turned out nice.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She has decided to follow Reagan and become a pleasure sim.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Reagan wants to be a Celebrity Chef.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And of course, Taft always follows Reagan, so she said she wants to be one too.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

See those ears? It's like they have a tab on the top of them.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Taft teaches Washington to talk. They will remain very close friends, with Washington calling her daily at college. It must have been sad for him when all the big kids left for college and he was an only child. I think it's very sweet how much he loves his sister Taft.

Grace has finally become the Education Minister. Her goal during her administration is to make swimming a mandatory subject for all schools, from elementary to college.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Martin came by with his dog Izzie for a visit.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And has now taught all the Webbs how to slap dance. Thanks so much, Martin. :P

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Izzie was up to some mischief. I don't remember whether he was digging a hole or destroying the furniture, but Grace didn't like it. It's probably good that the Webbs still don't have any pets.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Taft finds studying fitness from a book to be her favorite hobby. Yeah, I would think it's more fun in theory than in practice.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Everyone should now think about Wilson. Grace, that's Reagan - get with the program. But seriously, it's time for yet another birthday.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Washington thinks his daddy is funny, and doesn't quite get the concept of blowing out the candles yet.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Awwww, and he turned out to be cute. No signs of demonic possession yet.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Since Grace supposedly works with Rose on campus, Grace had asked her on an outing, and I guess Rose "found" a pinball machine on campus somewhere (you know how those Greek house kids are always "finding" stuff) and gave it to Grace as a gift.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The fitness hobby has made Clinton quite exhausted, although he earned a plaque right before he went to bed.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Hey Clinton, did the fire safety course pay off?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

We may never know, but it's probably best that the fire department sent a man.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Clinton is embarrassed that he set the kitchen on fire with his grilled cheese, but is quite grateful for the quick response of the fireman. He feels compelled to give Irfan Dai a large tip.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace has fulfilled an impossible want of maxing out all skills! Go Grace!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

My fake daughter Amiee steals the Webb's invisible newspaper and runs with her eyes closed so no one will see her. Did I mention that she's in the gifted program? :P

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

All the annoying slap dancing paid off, and Wilson was able to earn a Music and Dance plaque.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

In his spare time he enjoys being Captain Jack Sparrow, captain of the White Pearl. Maybe a black bathtub would feel more authentic for him. I'll tell you what, Wilson. If you graduate Summa Cum Laude, I'll install a black bathtub for you when you return home.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It's that time again to apply for college scholarships. Wilson does pretty well.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Taft earned a plaque for her Science enthusiasm.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Reagan earned the same scholarships as her brother Wilson.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And here are Taft's scholarships. We won't hold it against her that she got less money, since she is the youngest.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Between the three of them they bring §11,000 which will be more than enough to start out in style.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Grace got the kids set up at college, and since she works there, they should have no problems. Nice shirt there, Wilson.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And here is where we leave our new set of college Freshmen. We will be seeing them again soon, after we visit the Bauers and the Hamiltons.


Oh yeah, I forgot to take a family photo at the start, so I thought I'd add the Webb family trees here as a reminder to you, but mostly to me who's who in the Webb family. These are all of Clinton's kids.


And these are all of Grace's kids, plus her sister Beverly, who is married to Forrest Hamilton. Wilson and Reagan are the two children that Clinton and Grace had together. Grace's first four children were from her first marriage. She's the one whose husband was killed in a tragic Murphy bed accident before they moved to Apple Grove.


Scoring: 1 point for adding Washington to the family, 1 point for Grace's LTW of becoming Education Minister, 1 point for Clinton's Fitness hobby plaque, 3 points for Grace's impossible want of maxxing all skills, 1 point for Wilson's Music & Dance plaque, 1 point for Taft's Science plaque, and 3 points for the kids going to college. The total population of Apple Grove is now 33. The current population is 31.

Wow that's a lot of points! I had no idea we got a point for hobby plaques, I'll have to go count those now, hehe.

ASimWen said...

Hmmmm all these kids seem to be named after presidents. heh, I just realized that.

"Grace must have access to the pool at Académie Le Tour, which is why she's chosen to wear a swimsuit with pants, so she can always be prepared for a swim." Heehee! There were many funny comments this time. This is the first one that made me chuckle!

Kerry said...

I'm glad Washington grew into those ears! Or, perhaps the ears grew into him--at any rate, they look fine now he's a kid.

Funny update, as always!

Minty said...

Great update as always. Love your fake daughter's appearance.

ciyrose said...

Reagan is pretty, and I think her hair kind of suits her look.

It's funny how different sims react to demotions and stuff. It always makes me laugh when they seem happy about it.

You certainly seem to get a lot of pleasure sims, but Taft is pretty cute.

Washington's ears are quite interesting. I'm really interested to see what they look like as he grows up.

Great job on the IW of maxing all skills...although as an IW goes, it's pretty simple for Knowledge sims.

Thanks for the family trees....I almost forgot that Grace started as a Fletcher. It's nice to see the connections again.

Thanks, ciyrose! :) Wow, you sure are getting caught up fast on Apple Grove! :)
