Halpert 2: Round 4

Now that the college graduation is done, it's time to start the endless barrage of new houses. First up is Apple Halpert and Shawn Scott.

Apple is the oldest child of Jessica and Christopher Halpert, although her younger sister Kiwi is not far behind her. Shawn is the middle son of Emily and Lawrence Scott, and Emily's 4th son overall. 

Hi, guys. Glad to see you made it back from college ok.

Apple: Yes, we're both fine, but I'm really not crazy about these pants.

Don't worry, I'll make sure you get some new clothes. Now why don't you go see your new house...

Apple: Um, mysterious voice?


Apple: Who are all these people?

What people?

Apple: Well, there seems to be three little girls, and there's some pictures of a pregnant woman...why would these pictures be in a brand new house? Shawn, what do you think?

Shawn: Huh? Oh, um, I don't know.

Typical oblivious man.
Where are we going off to?

Apple: We're heading over to Tranquility Bay Chapel, to get married. It's too much of a hassle to do the wedding here.

I see. 

And yet again nobody sits in the chairs! Why did I bother putting those in?

I think I'll let the moment speak for itself.
Another picture?

Apple: Yes, of a different girl.

You know, you don't have to keep them up...

Apple: No, I don't mind. Whoever left them her obviously loved these people a lot, and I think it gives the house character. 

I like the way you think, Apple.

Dress for Spirit Day, Apple. Don't forget the face paint!
See? It worked.
Nice job, Apple. 

Apple: Thanks, mysterious voice.

Um, not such a nice job here.

Apple: Oh, no...
Well, that explains why you were cooking so much.

Nice going, Shawn!

Shawn: Thanks. I'm only one level away from my lifelong dream of becoming the mayor.

I still don't see how a mayor is higher on the ladder than a senator.
Apple: I think it's time!

Oh, well. I guess I'll have to contemplate SimCity's political system later. It's baby time!

Make that babies time.

And the first one out is....

Apple: It's a girl! Meet baby Idina!

Apple: Oh,  boy...we're not done yet...

And the second one out is...

Apple: Another girl! Meet Rosario!

At least I can tell them apart with the different skin colors.

Ok, so Idina has lighter skin, brown hair, and brown eyes.

And Rosario has dark skin, but still brown hair and brown eyes.

Hmm, let's go with pro-control.

Yes! That's 2 in one week. I'm on a roll.

Congratulations, Apple, but you might want to get inside and get that nanny out of here. 

Apple: Oh, yeah. I remember from when Kiwi and Tangerine were little.

Happy birthday dear Idina and Rosario...

Well, Rosario is pretty much a carbon copy of her mom.

And Idina grew up with slightly lighter hair than her eyebrows...who said they need to match, anyway, right?
And so the marathon of teaching begins. Better get the coffee ready.

Shawn: Come on, Rosario, you can do it...

Ok, so Shawn is in charge of walking...

And Apple is in charge of talking. Nice system.

Idina: Mama!

And it seems to be working pretty well. She sure is smart.

Your gardener, on the other hand...look at those flowers! They're in anything but a wonderful condition!

So any plans for a third child?

Shawn: I don't know. We only had the two extra bedrooms, and we had girls so we have an heiress.

Apple: Well, the twins do start school soon...

I see the jury is still out on that.

They are little cuties, aren't they? And their pajamas match!

Well, it's about time I wrapped this week up. 

Apple: Goodnight, honey. Mommy loves you.

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: This family is living in my favorite house that I've ever built in the game. It was originally from the hood I played before starting Tranquility Acres, a long time ago. I packaged it to make the sims living there into townies in this hood, hence the pictures on the walls. And it's about time I got some natural twins in this town. Something tells me I'm in for a spurt, though.

Hurray for natural twins! They are darling. Great job on the chance cards too. I suck at them.

ciyrose said...

Aww...the twins are adorable. I really like Apple.
