It's another episode of the Zanders! Up, mostly, when I said it would be. Whee!

Warnings are the same as last time: swearing, fat, tighty-whities, but nothing NSFW.

Photobucket

As I'm sure you recall, we left off with Beau aging up to an elder.

Photobucket

Oh no, no, no. No one in my legacies wears overalls.

Photobucket

Aw, he looks like your favorite grandpa. <3

WHY HAVEN'T I CHANGED THAT COUCH/WALLPAPER?! WHY?!

Photobucket

Beau shares a birthday with baby Ben.

Photobucket

Why do we put babies outside to age up? Is that really a smart idea?

Photobucket

Yes, infants on the grass! Great plan!

Photobucket

You remind me of the babe.
(What babe?)
The babe with the power.
(What power?)
The power of voo-doo.
(Who do?)
You do.
(Do what?)
Remind me of the babe.


Photobucket

Cute toddler, hope he doesn't crawl into the lake.

Photobucket

Aaaand now it's time for a birth!

Photobucket

Meet Brandy Zander. Born virtuoso and light sleeper. Dark skin, brown hair, brown eyes.

Photobucket

Aaaand Angie immediately went to age up. Did you know Sims can't age when they're pregnant? So now Beau is like 30 days older than her.

Photobucket

Start?!

Photobucket

Toddler training!

Photobucket

Speaking of Ben, I didn't post his stats. Brave and loner with pink as a favorite color. You can say violet all you like, EA, on my screen that is pink.

Photobucket

And Brandy's favorite color is white/seafoam green.

Photobucket

Infants are boring. BIRTHDAY! (Also, awwwwwwwwww! Cute sleepy baby!)

Photobucket

At least she's not outside? Seriously, what happened to infant goes up, toddler comes down?

Photobucket

I hope that floor has been mopped.

Photobucket

It's alive! It's ALIVE!

Photobucket

Hair. No.

Photobucket

Really? You're all done here, Mr.Babysitter? You're sure you're not FORGETTING SOMETHING?

Photobucket

He caught a cake. A cake. Right.

Photobucket

That's quite an exuberant face, Ben.

Photobucket

Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive. Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' aliiiiiiiive.

Photobucket

I didn't know we had genies in this game yet!

Photobucket

Do any of my sims wear things besides tighty-whities?

Photobucket

But he cleans up pretty cute. Kind of kooky eyes, though.

Photobucket

Angie finally got enough painting points to finish her portrait.

Photobucket

Birthday!

Photobucket

Birthday!

Photobucket

Birthday!

Photobucket

TIGHTY-WHITIES!

Photobucket

And post-makeover. Her eyes freak me out a lot less than her brother's.

Photobucket

What? Angie needs more friends to go up a SKILL point? Oh that's crap.

Photobucket

Another birthday! (Sorry, this was still during my "don't take enough pictures" phase.)

Photobucket

Ben: "I want to be a real boy!"

Photobucket

Excellent. That is a handsome young man. And Brandy, so kind of you to join us!

Photobucket

Brandy: "Whee, birthdays! Yay!"

Yeah, we're done honey.

Photobucket

Makeover. He rolled good this and family oriented last age up, so I gave him a little bit of a nerd edge.

Photobucket

Brandy vs. the sandwich. Watch for it on PPV.

Photobucket

Beau still fishes. Constantly.

Photobucket

Angie's working on those friends for her next charisma point. The maid wasn't overly responsive.

Photobucket

Let's not beat around the bush. I'm madly in love with Beau and if he wasn't a character of my own creation, we'd run off together. So he's working on painting points for the next gen's portraits.

Photobucket

Angie needs donations for work, and she wanted to throw a party, so fundraiser it is!

Photobucket

Nick Alto stopped by. He aged up WEIRD.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Overall, a pretty successful fundraiser.

Photobucket

It was successful enough that Angie bought the fast learner trait. :D

Photobucket

She immediately puts it to the test by making cute faces in the mirror.

Photobucket

We can do homework at tables?! Without crazy prompting? Amazing.

Photobucket

Ben rolled an opportunity to bring in a fish.

Photobucket

And immediately, all of his wants revolved around fish!

Photobucket

So he's taken to fishing with his dad after school. It's quite cute.

Photobucket

Speaking of Beau and fishing, no longer content with our pond he has moved onto...other people's ponds!

Photobucket

Children on large, dangerous cliffs! Oh yes, safe plan.

Photobucket

Beau: "Ah, so quiet, so peaceful."
Ben: "So dad, did you know there isn't just one type of minnow, but several "true" minnows, mainly being the smaller fish in the subfamily Leuciscinae? But, it's also an unspecific term for tiny freshwater and saltwater fish, especially those used as fishing bait? And of course there's the SS Minnow, the wrecked boat featured in the television series Gilligan's Island."
Beau: "Mustn't. Kill. Child."

Photobucket

Not enough Brandy. She really likes that car.

Photobucket

Time to be a teen!

Photobucket

That's a...wonderful outfit that I absolutely thought I'd deleted.

Photobucket

Grumpy last time, family oriented like Ben this.

Photobucket

Eesh, you can see the grumpy.

Brandy: "What does it matter? You've already picked an heir."

Photobucket

Still, the makeover is nice.

Photobucket

I like her outfit, too. (Fat rant: Why do so many of the EA made clothes look like crap on heavy sims? Brandy's not even really heavy! And user made clothes? I'm looking at you Liana. Almost universally shit on anyone not a size 2. Don't even get me started on how many hairs clipped her cheeks.)

Photobucket

Angie needed to meet Blair, the "police chief" for work. By the time she got off work and over to the house, it was too late to go in. So she decided to stand outside and serenade them instead.

Photobucket

Beau wants to catch every fish. He's done OK on fresh water, but we've never been to ocean before. See, the beach.

Photobucket

Angie's doing quite well at work.

Angie: "Maybe I will be leader of the free world!"

I'm still not holding my breath.

Photobucket

Teenagers. Painting and doing their homework. Maybe they're sick?

Photobucket

Yay, maxed fishing! Go Beau.

Photobucket

That also gave enough Lifetime Points for Bookshop Bargainer and Haggler. I know who'll be doing the shopping from now on.

Photobucket

Looks like Angie threw another fund raiser. Poor Ben trying to do his homework.

Photobucket

Um, Llamas are good, right? Let's say yes.

Photobucket

You know TS3, I love all the new opportunities. They're cool. But we could dial them back, just a smidge.

Photobucket

Angie finally remembered to go visit Blair, who turned out to be a teen and a crossing guard, or something. Police chief, my ass.

Photobucket

We can roll LTWs now? Awesome. Let's go for it, he's got several painting points already.

Photobucket

And he immediately rolled the want to write a SciFi novel.

Also, oh yeah. That do it for you, baby?

Photobucket

Oh a guitar! Because between Angie and Brandy, we don't already have two of those.

He's only missing the Deathfish now.

Photobucket

Aw, her mayor outfit is so cute! She's doing really well.

Photobucket

And it's time for a birthday!

Photobucket

Angie: "I'm so excited! AND STARVING!"

Photobucket

Angie: "Did I ever mention I'm terrified of sparkles?"

Photobucket

Angie: "Oy, my achin' back."

Photobucket

Angie: "Oh, but I'm adorable! Yay!"

Photobucket

Cute old lady outfit, and a naked Beau.

Photobucket

Close-up. <3

Photobucket

One half of the LTW down, one half to go! (I think she's at a 7 on the guitar.)

Photobucket

Beau, why so grumpy?

Photobucket

Are you...are you floating?

Photobucket

Nononononononononono!

Photobucket

Beau! :(

Photobucket

Death: BEAU ZANDER? IT'S TIME.
Beau: "I was told there would be hula girls?"

Photobucket

Death: I TOLD THEM THEY WOULD NOTICE!

Photobucket

Death: THERE WERE BUDGET CUTS. DESPITE THAT, IT IS TIME.

Photobucket

Beau: "What about a mai tai? No? OK."

:( Bye bye, Beau.

Photobucket

Newspaper?

Photobucket

Oh heck no, put that away. You have work to do far away from my family.

Photobucket

Oh Angie, I'm sorry.

But she didn't exactly witness death, EA.

Photobucket

Aw, BEAU! :(

Photobucket

ANGIE! Oh this is just too sad.

Photobucket

The next day, Angie threw another fundraiser and the maid mocked her for her grief. Where's the smite button when you need it?

Photobucket

Ben's still trying to become a famous author.

Photobucket

Angie's still working on her guitar.

Photobucket

And we'll end this update with Ben's birthday to adult and the official naming of him as the heir.

Photobucket

Sparkles.

Photobucket

SUPER SPARKLES GO!

Photobucket

Aw, his last trait, in honor of his dad, is Angler. :(

Photobucket

Thank you for joining us, Brandy!

Photobucket

Meet your gen 2 heir, Ben Zander! Brave, loner, family oriented, good, angler. LTW: Illustrious Author (Max writing and painting). Favorites: Kids, Tri-tip Steak, Violet. All around good guy.

Stay tuned next time for weddings, births, and all that other legacy stuff.
