Martin 4: Characters from the TV Show "Daria" (it was between that and characters from "Glee", but since we already had a Rachel in the "Friends" house I decided to wait on that.)
Beesly 13: Greek Gods and Godesses
Vega 5: Characters from the TV Show "Full House"(Michelle was the youngest daughter played by the Olsen twins)
Warner 6: Characters from Children's Books (If you don't know who Madeline is, look it up)
Beesly 14: Characters from Non-Disney Animated Features (Kayley is the protagonist of Quest for Camelot)
Warner 7: Characters from the Hunger Games books and movies. (I'm still in the middle of the book, but I love the name Katniss.)
Beesly 15: Actors from the Twilight Saga movies (Actor Kellan Lutz plays Emmet Cullen) 
Mendoza 4: Brands of Candy
Mendoza 5: Types of Pasta (Have had this one on my list for awhile-finally got to it this round.)

I'm really running thin on naming themes-if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to send them my way. Round 10 is coming up!

Mendoza 5: Round 9


We did it! We've come to the last household of round 9! (Throws confetti!) The honor belongs to Fern Mendoza and Connecticut Beesly. Fern is the daughter of either Nessarose and Harlem or Glinda and Bronx Mendoza; again, don't remember which one. Connecticut is the eldest son of Arizona and England Beesly.

Man, politics is a popular choice this round. Although Connecticut's lifetime want is to become the Law so I guess it works for now.


 And this plays into Fern's "marry off 6 children" want perfectly.


Fern: Hello...oh, hi Dad. No...Kelly's not your daughter. Jade is. She has your red hair. 

Glad to know I'm not the one one who can't keep that family straight.


 Looks like the welcome wagon has arrived...

Connecticut: How's it going, Holland?

Holland: (sigh) It could be better.


 Holland: And I know that Andre's going to figure it out any day now. I mean, the two girls are identical. They've already met at school. And now she's the only one in that house-all the attention's on her. I can't afford to support two kids if Dot kicks me out! 

Ok, Holland. Two things. First of all, it's not exactly the hight of politeness to show up as part of the welcome wagon and then begin a therapy session. And second, should you end up on your own I don't think you'll end up with custody of either kid. Just a hunch.

Oh, boy! Dressed up relatives! And I guess this clears up the "which daughter is whose" question.


 Hah! I remembered to set both formal outfits this time.





 Congrats, guys!

Fern: Thanks!

And now I'll just be occupying myself in other parts of the house.

 Let's dress for spirit day.


 Well, I guess that it went well. Sorry I forgot to capture the result.

Fern: That's ok.

 Ah-ha! I learned this one on the last lot. Let's hide.

 Yes! I'm going to have to remember that one.

 And I guess Connecticut's milked the politics career for all its worth.

 And I guess it was a good day for everybody, then.

Fern: I threw up 4 times this morning. How do you classify that as a good day?

 Sorry about the flu, Connecticut. But congrats on the promotion.

Connecticut: Ah, that's ok. Fern and I have been passing that flu back and forth for days.

 You guys might want to get that flu under control before the kid comes.

 Let's counter-sue for slander...


 Well, you certainly look like a lawyer. This week's been one big promotion fest for you.

 It's baby time!


Yeah, I sense a major twin spurt in round 10...

Another boy! Things are starting to even out.

Fern: We're naming him Penne., naming themes are getting pretty thin around here.

 Black hair from Grandma Arizona! I love when genetics hide!

 Nice job, Fern.

Fern: Well, I had the maternity leave to build up my skills.

 Another one? Ok, let's help the Mazovs.

  Man, Connecticut is having a good week.

 You're almost there, Connecticut.

Connecticut: Thanks. It's been quite a week.

 Happy birthday, dear Penne...

 Aww, and he has pointy ears!


 Fern: Come on, Penne...let's learn to walk...wait a minute...what is that smell?

Fern, I can't smell your world. If I could you guys wouldn't be allowed to have so many animals.

 Fern: Oh, come on...

See, this is what happens when you guys never leave your house. Judging by how many roaches there are, I'd say that's been sitting for at least a few days.

 Ok, I know I told you guys to go outside but the moment when the exterminator is spraying poison is not a good time.

 Ok, well, my time with you guys is just about up. And that means we are done with round 9! I'll check in with you guys in round 10!

 A Message from the Mysterious Voice: We did it! We made it through round 9! Stand by for the scorecard!

Mendoza 4: Round 9


We are really in the home stretch of round 9! Next up is the new home of Emerald Mendoza and Risto Cooprider. Emerald is the daughter of either Nessarose and Harlem or Glinda and Bronx Mendoza. I honestly don't remember which. Risto is a newcomer to the town.

Not bad for right out of college.


So what about you, Risto?

Risto: What?

What career did you choose?

Risto: Umm...well, nothing.


Risto: Yeah, none of the postings looked like something I'd want to do. We'll get by on Emerald's salary for now.

And Emerald, you're ok with this?

Emerald: Yeah, I guess so. It will be nice to have someone to take care of all the domestic chores for the first few days, you know. It will save us the expense of having to hire a maid.

Domestic dancing in your underwear in the middle of the living room?

Risto: What? Everybody dances while they clean. Haven't you ever been to the movies?

Well, I guess Risto's stint as a stay at home husband is over. Emerald must have pulled some strings in the political world and gotten him into the military. Let's use the parachutes.



So how's the working world treating you?

Risto: Pretty well, so far. But I don't think I'll stick with this for much longer.


Ahh, I guess Risto has found his calling.


Man, this is like week of the chance cards! Um, let's hide.


Well, I guess that takes care of the financial worries.


And just in time, too. Looks like a baby's on the way!

Emerald: I can't help feeling like we skipped something...

Huh? Didn't we do this already?

Ahh, I get it. It's the old "if I get more skill points today they'll hire me at a higher level" trick. 


Um...congratulations. But if you don't mind my asking...what is it exactly that you do? 

Risto: Truth be told, I don't even know for sure. I think whoever planned my career track was more concerned with cool outfits.


So, you're a pirate now.

Risto: Yup.

And as a pirate, a carpool still comes for you every morning.

Risto: Yup.

Sent by who?

Risto: The, um...pirate union? Look, we've already established that my job is just playing dress-up, ok? Do you have to point it out every time I come home?

Don't worry, looks like I'll have other distractions now. It's baby time!


Just one...we haven't had twins in awhile.

And we've hit the boy spurt! At least I hope so. 

Emerald: We're calling him Twix.


Odd name, but he's cute enough. 

What are you doing?

Emerald: Practicing my speech for when I go back to work tomorrow.

While holding your son?

Emerald: Yup.'re multi-tasking?


Ok, well, as strange as it seems my time here is up.

Emerald: Don't you usually stick around until he's a toddler?

Normally, but you guys gave birth late in the week. I have to be on my way now, to the last house in round 9! 


A Message From the Mysterious Voice: We're almost there! I was kind of disappointed that Twix didn't inherit Risto's skin. But these guys will be having at least one more child, so hopefully it will be passed on at some point. And I noticed on this lot how completely ridiculous the Adventure career is. I really think EA just wanted to dress the Sims up in absurd outfits all the way through. Seriously, why would a pirate go to work in a carpool?
