The Shibatas: Round 7 / Santa Baby?

Photobucket

As we arrive at the Shibata house, it's  somewhat decorated for Christmas, and there's already plenty of snow.

Photobucket

This is just a reminder of who's who in the Shibata family. 

Photobucket

Kimberly's family tree shows that she's one of the Tucker kids.  She and Ravi have 6 girls, but Kimberly only gave birth to 3 of them...

Photobucket

...because Desire, and twins True and Love were from alien abductions.  Ravi now has enough children to fulfill his LTW to marry off 6 children.  It's just unfortunate that none of them are male heirs.

Photobucket

Because of that and Kimberly's age, she's taking fertility treatments so that she and Ravi can try again for a male heir.  This round of treatments cost them §10,000, so they're really hoping they work.

Photobucket

Honey, the oldest girl, is not as sweet as her name implies.  With her 1 nice point (which I guess we could say is actually 9 mean points), she regularly gives her half-sister Desire noogies.  Desire has 7 nice points, so she just takes it.

Photobucket

But just because she puts up with it doesn't mean she has to like it.

Photobucket

Ravi is a Romance sim, who thankfully still seems quite enthusiastic about woohoo with his wife.  Now if he can can only use that keen interest to make a son...

Photobucket

Soon thereafter, Ravi went outside to play on the dance sphere, and disappeared.  Maybe it's a secret portal to another world...where they have probes.  Maybe Ravi will be the one to give them a son.  It won't matter if he's a green boy.  They just really need an heir.

Photobucket

The upstairs hallway of the Shibata's house is large enough that it's used for a nursery.  I couldn't resist getting some awesome toddler beds from MTS.  Now True and Love can go to bed and get up whenever they want.

Photobucket

Love is finally beginning to show signs that she's not 100% human.

Photobucket

And so is True, who is not wanting to learn Simlish.

Photobucket

Umm... what the heck, girl!  Honey invited her boyfriend Havelock Graham over - and they headed right for her parents bedroom, stripped... and started to get into bed together until I made them get out of there.  She's 18 years old now, but still...  I think reinstalling my game messed up ACR, so I had to go back and reinstall it too.  I don't have Inteen or anything, so this is not something Apple Grove teens are normally able to do.

Photobucket

So, since I wouldn't let them do what they really wanted to do, they had to settle for going steady.  Maybe they will get to do what they want in college, although it's not without its consequences as we found out in the last update.

Photobucket

Not to be outdone by her sister, Desire invited over Magnus Danaher, a rooster-headed tourist boy she met when she made a wish on the wishing well.

Photobucket

BTW, I love toddler beds! :) 

Photobucket

It's birthday time for Adore and Cherish.  This is Adore.

Photobucket

And Adore is still adorable as a teen.

Photobucket

Adore wants a lot of money, as well as to have a lot of fun.  She likes athletic guys who wear cologne, but she doesn't like hats.

Photobucket

She wants to be a professional party guest, and I can't argue with that, since that's a relatively easy one, especially after going to college.

Photobucket

It's also Cherish's birthday.  She's making a wish, and I hope it's a good one.

Photobucket

Cherish is also quite pretty, but she chose a rather skimpy outfit for December.

Photobucket

Cherish wants a lot of friends, and she also wants to have a family.  She likes guys that are fit, but can also cook.  She'd prefer that they weren't very career-oriented.  Maybe she wants her guy to be a stay-at-home-dad that cooks for her and works out.

Photobucket

Cherish would like to reach the top of the Law career.

Photobucket

Justin showed up, and for the first time he was wearing his wig and red cap, or maybe it's actually the real Santa.

Photobucket

He doesn't look too happy with me.  I think I may be on his naughty list for not believing in him for the last several updates.

Photobucket

Even though they're almost broke from the fertility treatments, Kimberly got an awesome washer and dryer for Christmas. 

Photobucket

Kimberly must have baked some good cookies, because Santa left them a stereo.  Since they already have a stereo, I decided to put it in Adore's inventory.  She's the nicest of the family, with 10 nice points, so I figure Santa would approve. 

Photobucket

Honey didn't deserve any presents, as she's still giving out noogies every chance she gets.

Photobucket

Cherish wants to get the Extraterrestrial Reparations Grant.  She just doesn't want to actually earn it by stargazing.

Photobucket

Adore is really great to have around now that she's big enough to help with her little sisters.

Photobucket

Cherish decided to put the wishing well to the test to get a first kiss.  She got this bald-headed guy named Aren Tellerman.  I can't remember where I've seen Aren before, but I do remember that I don't like him at all.

Photobucket

Honey is headed off early one morning after Christmas.  She's getting ready to leave for college.

Photobucket

Despite being mean, Honey did work really hard and earned a lot of scholarships.

Photobucket

Adore was upstairs with her little sisters when Honey was leaving, and in her adorable way, slid down the banister to hurry down to say goodbye.

Photobucket

Kimberly and Ravi also came out to see their eldest daughter off to the taxi.

Photobucket

But they're not sad, they're celebrating having one less kid in the house.

Photobucket

Yeah, they seem like they're going to be just fine.


Photobucket

And now as we leave the Shibata house, we can wonder whether or not fate or Santa will send them more kids - and hopefully at least one baby boy.

Scoring: No changes.

We Washer and dryer! just downloaded it, couldn't resist! hehe.. :)
And nice update, I just love your christmas rounds, makes me wanna do it myself.. :) I've tried it a couple of times when the EP/SP (?) came out, both soon forgot about it I think. :)

Thanks for commenting, MizzJulez! :)

I love the washer and dryer, because it's something from Sims 3 that I miss.

The Christmas round is fun to play. I've never done one before because I would always forget until I decided to do months. That's the only way I can remember. ;)

Sigh! I had to get the washer & dryer too. It's all your fault ;)

I see you've changed the looks of this blog too. I like it - but I really liked the old look too. This one is easier to read and has a bright freshnesh to it - but the old one was wonderfully oldfashioned in it sepia way. It was really beautiful. Anyway - once in a while you need a change, right.

Sorry about the washer and dryer, Nonikk! I know you're trying to cut back on cc instead of collecting more. ;) But I think it's nice to have another alternative for sims' comfort and hygiene.

I liked the old template too, but I had some problems with it, so I couldn't get some of the features I wanted to work. The exciting new thing for me is that I was finally able to get jump breaks to work. Plus, I can use pictures that are a little larger with this template.

All those girls! One would think that this was a Mattsmyra update! :)

Twoflower said...

LOL, so true! Even now I'm wondering how many kids it will take before they get their heir.

With all the estrogen in this house, its no wonder that Ravi doesn't mind getting abducted pretty often ;) Did he come back pregnant? I love the washer and dryer, I might have to download those sometime (they're really fun in TS3). I'm also glad that Santa seems to have found his hat. Good luck to Honey at university!

Twoflower said...

Thanks for reading, Liz! :) Yeah, Ravi may just be pregnant. It just depends on whether or not he's too old. ;)

This is a house full of girls for sure. Adore is really quite pretty and very cute. All the girls are very pretty actually. I like how the girls are starting to look more alien too. :)

Twoflower said...

Thank you! :) The Shibatas are a fun family that I always enjoy. I was disappointed that True and Love didn't have any alien genetics, but was glad to find the makeup so that they can still have an alien look.
