Teer 2 (R12)

Last Round, Wesley and Jeannie took surprisingly good care of their two little girls. Wesley was still pretty self-absorbed though and still haven't realized that Phoebe doesn't really look too much like the Teer side of the family, nor does she much resemble her mother. During her maternity leave, Jeannie took up writing, and gardening. After a too-high dose of pesticide exposure, she turned into a plant sim. Over the course of the round, both Wendy and Phoebe transitioned into lovely young ladies. Will Jeannie and Wes curb their cheating ways now that the girls are old enough to know what's going on? Lets see...

Eich 2 (R12)

Aaaaand we're back

Last round, Kana gave birth to her alien spawn whom they named Ziggy who grew up into an adorable toddler.  Mistress of the Night, a.k.a. Auntie Tia turned out to be a great nocturnal babysitter for both Zora and Ziggy despite thinking she'd spend eternity doing interesting things.  At the end of the round, Angelica discovered that she was pregnant.  ((I played this house in February 2012 according to the dates on the screenshots... it's been two and a half years, I'm not sure I remember what exactly went on so I'm going to wing it, lol!)

a Silvervale renaissance?

Well hello!  I'm not sure anyone is still watching this blog but I wanted to say -- thanks to Origin, I can play TS2 again :)

Back in, oh... February 2012 (that's when my last TS2 screenshot is dated) my older Windows Vista computer began having issues.  When I got a new computer it had Windows 8 and I honestly didn't want to jump through the hoops of getting TS2 to work on it.  Sims in general kinda fell off my radar...

Last month, Origin was having the SIMS 2 ultimate collection for free to anyone with a Sims game registered.  And, best of all it works with Windows 8!!!!

So anyway, Silvervale might be making a comeback because I really miss my sim-babies.  I have the 'hood installed and working in my new game, and just finished reading through my own blog from the beginning to reacquaint myself.  I have screencaps from two houses on my backup drive that I played 2 and a half years ago and haven't blogged yet, lol!  

A lot of other things have changed (we just moved in to our new home) so things around here are super busy.  But I can't wait to start playing again :). I might even blog those two found households if I can remember what happened.
