Lucy's Valley: Week Four - Rinth

As a quick refresher, this is a board game challenge! The first generation's rules, so Libby and Owen's rules, are that only the founder can be employed, and in very specific jobs (Libby's a teacher, as that is the one that had an open slot). A honeymoon must be had (which was done last update!), so the only remaining Generation 1/Purple challenge is that a $1,000 item must be bought at each child's birth. Easy enough!

Back from their vacation, and moved in and out for syncing with the proper neighborhood time, Libby (snapun)chats with her boss, Myron, about the plan for the new school term. Or something like that. I may have been in a LOT of these meetings recently. XD

Owen (alleliua) gets ready for his life as a househusband. :D

He's STILL sitting there on the couch, reading, when Myron comes home with Libby for a planning evening. O_o


~sweet life during pregnancy montage~

And the not so sweet birth part. XD

As per how I'm naming the kids in this challenge (pulling out a card from the deck in my aMAZEing labyrinth game, and naming the sim the first thing I associate with the thing on the card), his name is Lumiere. Candelabra card = singing candelabra from Beauty and the Beast, anyone?

And here is the expensive item as needed for the challenge!

Good house husband. *pats*

Owen: So THAT is how you get wine stains out of the carpet!

...for some reason I thought this was important, back at the end of February? IDK. D:

He's a little wonky-looking, but I'm sure he'll grow into it. His parents are both adorable, so he'll turn out good, right?

Annnnnnd that's a bit scary.

Baby #2 on the way!

<33333 favorite hobby animation.

*gasp* How naughty!

New want! How is it that I've been playing this game since 2007, and I'm STILL finding things I never noticed before?

I'm beginning to think that Lumiere's only good at angry faces.


Owen has a plant hat.

Lumiere <3 I love his freckly little nose. I have a feeling he will grow into those features quite well.

Hopefully! He just hit teen in game, but I can't remember what he looks like. >_>

:D :D :D and remember how you said I would get back my simming mojo at the worst times? Well, my laptop is at the repair shop over the holidays, so I won't get it back until late January, and OMG WANT TO SIM SO BAD. >__>

Hi =) One or two weeks ago I discovered your blog and began to read it. I've read a lot of BAC challenges, and yours is the most interesting! <3 I love the idea of supernatural founders and also love the idea of carrying supernatural genetics. You have wonderful style of storytelling and nice sence of humor ^_^

P.S. Where can I find custom content from your screenshots? I'm interested in eyebrows default repacement (because the link in your «Resource List» is broken) and in outfit-and-hat for babies.
P.P.S. Sorry for my mistakes (if they exist). English isn't my mothertongue =)

Your English is great! ;)

I would love to help you, but my computer is off getting repaired, and I probably won't get it back until after the 20th of January. I'm currently using mobile internet, and I can't hunt down CC on that. :( I would suggest yanking a couple of screenshots of what you want, and going and asking at the wcif_sims community here on LJ. It might be hard to find, since I get most of my CC from GoS, and they just lost EVERYTHING. I have all of the different colors of the baby outfit on my laptop, if you feel like waiting until I get it back! Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. :(

Great English? You embarrassed me))) Thank you)))
Well, when I want to say something in English, I usually think about it for 5-10 minutes, scrupulously looking for the right words. Especially if I'm going to write something (in non-internet communication nobody have enough time to think about right words even in mothertongue! :D). My biggest problem is complicated structure of my thoughts: in Russian I can express whatever I want, but there is rather different language structure in English… Well, I think that a lot of practice will help me manage with it =) And liquidate my habit to use "Well, bla-bla-bla" XD

Thank you very much for quick and honest answer! I'll try to use the WCIF services here and on MTS. What's a pity that the repairing of your computer takes so much time! Mobile internet is very big restriction((( I hope repairers will manage faster then promised =)
