Last week in the Lazlo household, Faith Lazlo-Russell gave birth to her first child, an evil darling named Grace. Faith, Grace, and Mason moved out to allow Fortune to expand his brood. Meanwhile, Guardian, the Generation 3 heir, aged up to teen.
This pretty young lady is Harmony Lazlo. She aged up to teen and added Handy to her list of traits.
Last week in the Lazlo household, Adaeze passed away. Faith used her mom's death as an opportunity to move in and marry her boyfriend, Mason Russell. Faith and Mason quickly wed, and Faith painted his portrait. Mason's portrait is now my favorite portrait in the family. I wish the others were as clear.
I have to say I <3 this game. Something happened this week that totally had me laughing out loud. I don't know if it was a fluke or intentionally programmed, but it was awesome. Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait until the end of this post to find out what it was!
We start the week with Justice heading off to his new job as an Astronaut. Yes, he reached the top of the Military career. So, I had a total RTFM moment here. I was all excited about Justice only working one day a week. That meant he had six full days to skill, skill, skill. Anyway, he left the house at 6 am, but didn't show up at 1PM. I got a little nervous and was wondering what was going on, especially since his needs were dropping. I had recently installed Ambitions so I thought it was a glitch. I looked back at his career panel and noticed his hours were 7AM - 1AM. *Doh!* 1 AM, not 1 PM. *slaps forehead* So, while it's nice that Astronauts only work one day a week, that one day is an eighteen hour shift!
It is week eight in the Lazlo household, and they finally have walls. I was trying to be conservative with the family funds because Adaeze has the Swimming in Cash lifetime wish. After relentless teasing by my husband about my Sims living on the lawn, I caved and started building their house.
On the left, we have the master bedroom and master bath. Next door is the kitchen. Near the front of the house is the dining room. The big open area in the center is the living room. On the right are the kids' bedrooms. Faith's room is towards the front of the house, while Fortune and Chance's room is towards the back.
My favorite feature of the house is the kids' bathroom suite. Faith has her own half-bath and walk-in closet while the boys share another half-bath and walk-in closet. The two half-baths are connected by a shower/tub that the three share.
Now that you've had the tour, let's see what the family is up to.
It is now Week Six in the Lazlo household, and I am regretting choosing the Long lifespan. I honestly thought I needed it to have any hope of completing the LTWs, but the pre-Young Adults years of the Lazlo children are taking forever.I know the rules say you can't change the lifespan once you start, and I really don't want to restart the challenge, so I'm going to persist. [Edited 12/29/2011: Null and void now that I am no longer following the rules.]
Ok, now that my whining is out of the way, let's get on with it....
I snapped this pic because I absolutely heart Justice in this uniform. I can't remember if this is the uniform for Fighter Pilot or Squadron Leader. Incidentally, my blogging is way behind my playing. This is week six, but I'm currently playing week nine.
There aren't many pictures from Week 4 in the Lazlo house, because Justice concentrated on helping Faith, Fortune, and Chance learn their toddler skills.
Justice did manage to break his 150th board to fulfill the Board Breaker skill challenge. Now, he just needs to meditate for 150 hours and participate in 75 sparring matches to have completely mastered the Martial Arts skill.
