Sunday, Day 14

"60% Of The Time, It Works Every Time"

healeyw01-002

A pre-dawn glow surrounds the tranquil, picturesque Troubadour-Healey home.

healeyw01-003

Matisse: *FAAAARRRTTTSSSS*

tumblr_nf44jsj4gc1ql5yr7o1_500

Oh Lord, let's try this again...

healeyw01-009

Matisse Troubadour -- our ~elegant~ resident artist and photographer for the town's newspaper, Oceanside Today -- is on early morning diaper duty.

healeyw01-010

The newest member of the family, baby Skye finally gets to sleep in her own room for the first time. Matisse's inspiration for the room comes from the Sunday comic strip she draws for the newspaper. The Adventures of Will & Rod, a comic about a young boy and his stuffed bunny, is very popular with her fellow Oceansidians.

healeyw01-013

As Skye falls asleep...

healeyw01-014

Matisse continues working on her latest masterpiece. She's so close to maxing her Arts & Crafts skill. She can't wait for the day when she can become a full-time artist and not have to listen to her co-worker Beckett Graham complain about her friend's businesses.

healeyw01-015

With the recent rash of trashcan vandalism going around, Matisse's Significant Other thought it was best to build a fence with a lockable gate around theirs. She doesn't know why. Everyone loves Matisse. Who would want to knock over their trash?

healeyw01-020

Oldest child Cyan is also up working on her masterpiece.

healeyw01-021

Her more expressive pieces are on display in the second floor hallway.

healeyw01-025

After drawing Cyan turns to her second favorite pastime... 🙄

healeyw01-026

Matisse, MATISSE! What is this? This isn't Becca in Green on Pink!

Matisse: This piece deals with the preposterous notion of sims having to put themselves into years of debt in order to follow some antiquated ideal of having a better -- quote, unquote -- life than everysim else. I call it "Condo on the Beach."

Bitchin'...

healeyw01-027

healeyw01-028

healeyw01-030

After spending the morning in the poo water...

healeyw01-033

Cyan knocks out on her sister's floor.

healeyw01-035

healeyw01-037

As dawn breaks Kent Healey, pottery enthusiast and Matisse's baby daddy, rises to the earsplitting cries of his baby girl.

healeyw01-039

Skye: *Wails*

healeyw01-042

healeyw01-043

Cyan: This thing is ruining my beauty sleep!

healeyw01-044

Good Girl!

*in case you forgot that The Chosen One was the first toddler to be potty trained*

healeyw01-048

As Dad changes the little screamer...

healeyw01-049

Cyan finds a nice, soft place to lay in her own room.

healeyw01-051

healeyw01-050

healeyw01-052

healeyw01-053

healeyw01-054

Condo on the Beach is done. It looks just like the real thing *snickers*

healeyw01-055

Cyan's room is the perfect place to hang her second masterpiece.

healeyw01-056

healeyw01-057

As Kent freshens up...

healeyw01-058

Matisse warms up burnt shrimp gumbo leftovers for breakfast.

healeyw01-060

healeyw01-063

During breakfast Kent brings up how worried he is about Matisse running around taking photos for the paper. With all of the trashcan terrorism and the still-at-large Oceanside Cat Burglar, Kent is afraid something might happen to his lady.

healeyw01-064

Matisse tries to lessen Kent's fears by reassuring him that she's being safe. She would, however, love to get a photo of the Oceanside Cat Burglar. That would be the ultimate scoop! Maybe Kent has an idea who she is since he lived in the caves with all of the other NPCs?

healeyw01-065

Kent: The caves are filled with so much fog it's difficult to see any other sims in there.

healeyw01-066

Mattisse: 😕

healeyw01-073

After dodging that bullet, Kent dons more Winter-type apparel...

healeyw01-074

and heads to his pottery shop, Healey Potter.

healeyw01-077

He changes again, this time into his painter coveralls, and opens for the day.

healeyw01-080

Kent gets to work on crafting the items he needs to restock the store. Healey Potter is booming! Kent is so happy to see his neighbors enjoying his crafts.

healeyw01-082

The first customer of the day is Natural Scientist Yasmin Onnen. Yaz is always looking for unique items for her eclectic home.

healeyw01-083

Yep, that gecko will work nicely.

healeyw01-084

Next is Police Cadet Sadie Biltmore. Hey Sadie, looking for some pottery for your house?

Sadie: I'm here to check out Kent Healey's "business." I know he's really using this shop as a front for his illegal bubble juice pushing! I'm going to catch him red-handed!

Uh-huh.

healeyw01-085

Tagging not far behind is driver and Second Life shop owner Noelee Andrews. Really she's just here to fawn over her girlfriend.

healeyw01-086

Sadie heads outside to investigate further.

Sadie: Is this where you're hiding the drugs? Ah-ha -- oh wait, there's just potting soil in here.

healeyw01-089

Noelee finds a nice plate and she's ready to be rung up.

healeyw01-093

healeyw01-095

Taking a short break from the pottery wheel, Kent schmoozes with the customers.

Kent: All of my pottery is hand-made from Oceansidian clay dug up by yours truly. My sustainable artisan pottery will hold up for thousands of years!

healeyw01-097

Kent: Is there anything I can help you find, Officer Biltmore?

Sadie: Yeah, I was looking for something that you blow that elevates your body? *Wink, wink* It gives you the giggles, yaknowwhatI'msaying?

healeyw01-100

Kent: I sure do. You should get your own pottery wheel! Whenever I'm down it lifts me right back up! Have a great day Sadie!

healeyw01-101

Kent: *hums a tune*

He's so adorably clueless.

healeyw01-102

healeyw01-103

healeyw01-104

Kent continues smiling...

healeyw01-109

healeyw01-110

and crafting the remainder of the day.

healeyw01-111

healeyw01-112

Sadie: Maybe I was wrong about Kent Healey. But if he's not the bubble juice kingpin then who is?

healeyw01-113

healeyw01-115

healeyw01-119

Just then a chill came into the air...

healeyw01-120

Rocky Kotsomiti, head of the Garden Club, enters the shop and Kent becomes visibly upset. His whole demeanor changes in a blink of the eye.

healeyw01-122

healeyw01-128

Sadie curiously watches the behavior of the two sims. Why is Kent so upset with Rocky? He's just a gardener, Sadie thought.

healeyw01-126

Repairman Abbot Moulding takes a break from fixing breaks to peruse a waterfall contraption of pots. Such mechanical mastery, thinks Abbot.

healeyw01-131

healeyw01-132

Kent doesn't let the fact that the sim that is trying to wack him is in his shop. Kent knows he's only trying to intimidate him. Rocky definitely wouldn't do anything crazy with Officer Sadie in the room.

healeyw01-135

If Sadie ever found out that Rocky and his Garden Club were just fronts for the biggest (and only) bubble juice drug ring in Oceanside things could get ugly. Sadie and her family would be in grave danger.

healeyw01-140

Kent would never want anything to happen to the fine sims he's met and have grown to love in this town. So he keeps his mouth shut -- he's no snitch after all -- but Rocky doesn't know that...

healeyw01-141

Kent has leverage and he knows it.

healeyw01-142

Maybe it's time to make a deal...

healeyw01-143

Sadie: *thinks* Those two are some odd ducks. I better add this to my dossier back at the station.

healeyw01-146

Sadie vows to keep an eye on Kent and Rocky. She's got a bad feeling about those two.

healeyw01-145

Kent closes shop...

healeyw01-147

and Rocky leaves without making a fuss.

healeyw01-150

healeyw01-151

After earning another star from a waiting-to-be-rung-up Abbot, Healey Potter goes to Rank 1!

healeyw01-152

Kent chooses Notable Reputation. His word is his bond.

healeyw01-154

Kent: I can't believe that jerk had the nerve to walk into my shop! Does he think he scares me? I'll show him, big jerk-face, oily haired, pumpkin head!

healeyw01-153

Abbot: 😒

healeyw01-158

Abbot: Good day, good sir. Uh, sorry about your pumpkin-headed friend. Cheerio!

healeyw01-159

A little restocking...

healeyw01-160

then it's time to go home.

*************************************************************************************************************************

healeyw01-161

Back at home...

healeyw01-173

healeyw01-162

Cyan finally got that beauty sleep she wanted so badly.

Cyan: I woke up like this.

healeyw01-165

Matisse spies her bestie, Treasurer and First Lady Vivian Landgraab, waddling by...

healeyw01-167

and greets her with a warm hug.

healeyw01-170

Matisse immediately starts talking to Viv's very flat, but still very pregnant, belly

Matisse: *in baby talk* How's the little baby? You're a special baby, huh, cause you got Mommy that Nanny she's been wanting.

Vivian: Damn straight! *giggles*

healeyw01-180

Matisse: *whispers* Red Alert! Self-rightous preacher lady at 12 o'clock.

Vivian: *whispers back* Ugh, I know. She's so annoying.

Becca Goodacre: *thinks* The Watcher says, Thou shall not hate other sims, but those two really burn my blood! *sign* I'm not being a good Peteran...

healeyw01-182

STOP BEING SUCH A DRAMA QUEEN CYAN! YOU'RE NOT THE CENTER OF THE WORLD!

Seriously, she's the only toddler I've ever had this notice for. She's a Popularity sim in the making.

healeyw01-188

After Vivian regales Matisse with stories of her wild days at University...

healeyw01-191

Matisse heads over to Her Majesty for play time...

healeyw01-195

and cuddles.

healeyw01-196

Matisse is amazed by her little bundle of love. With everything that happened to her friend Minka and her kids, Matisse is glad that her two girls are well taken care of and watched like a hawk. Well, maybe not "watched like a hawk" all of the time...

Matisse: *sniffs* Have you been in the toilet water again, Missy?

healeyw01-204

healeyw01-209

All better!

healeyw01-211

Viv is a great Auntie. She just adores Cyan! She's so happy that Cyan and her daughter Gwyneth are BFFs just like her and Matisse are.

healeyw01-219

Matisse makes lunch meat sandwiches but starts to feel really tired.

healeyw01-225

Vivian agrees to watch the girls while Matisse naps.

healeyw01-229

Cyan: *BARFS*

Vivian: Where is my Nanny when I need her!

healeyw01-234

healeyw01-238

healeyw01-239

Skye: *Wails*

healeyw01-241

Cyan: Seriously dude, what is your damage!

healeyw01-240

Matisse's bionic ears hear the baby's cries.

healeyw01-243

healeyw01-248

Thinking again on Minka's predicament, Matisse is enraged. How could she not take care of her kids? These little lives depend on so much -- how can she be so careless? And then that lavish wedding she threw! It was like she was celebrating not having them around anymore! How tacky. Matisse wasn't sure how their friendship could be the same after all of this.

healeyw01-252

After putting Skye down for the night...

healeyw01-253

Matisse returns to her easel. This is where she can unleash all of her frustrations -- on the canvas.

healeyw01-260

healeyw01-249

Kent returns home frustrated as well.

healeyw01-264

HOLY NAKED PIXELS, BATMAN! Sheesh, that was fast!

healeyw01-266

healeyw01-268

tumblr_o78w54zdwm1vrjwbvo1_500

Matisse and Kent were so busy trying to get busy they forgot to put soda in the woohoo...

healeyw01-276

Monday, Day 15

"Scream Queen"

healeyw01-001

Cyan begins her early morning fishing expedition...

healeyw01-005

then passes out on the floor.

healeyw01-007

healeyw01-006

Skye patiently waits for the perfect moment to wake up the house.

healeyw01-008

Wait for it...

healeyw01-011

waaaiiit for iiiiitttt...

healeyw01-014

Now!

Skye: *screams bloody murder*

healeyw01-013

Naked Parents: W-what? We're up!

healeyw01-015

healeyw01-018

Kent makes do with what he can find in the fridge and prepares fruit parfait for breakfast.

healeyw01-021

Matisse however might not be in the mood for food.

healeyw01-025

Nevermind. Matisse shovels down the fruit parfait like it was her last meal.

healeyw01-027

They're perfect for each other...

healeyw01-032

healeyw01-037

healeyw01-040

healeyw01-042

After Matisse leaves Kent goes about his house-husbandly duties...

healeyw01-044

feeding the Banshee...

healeyw01-046

washing the Toilet Surfer...

healeyw01-052

and paying the taxes.

healeyw01-049

dsjkldsjkjasdjfdsjfkaj!!!

tumblr_ntd5y6pesq1ql5yr7o1_500

healeyw01-055

Next on his "honey-do" list is the malfunctioning bathtub in the master bath. This doesn't look so hard.

healeyw01-056

healeyw01-057

healeyw01-058

Maybe we'll just call Abbot...

healeyw01-059

Cyan breaks away from the toilet long enough to work on her coloring.

healeyw01-060

healeyw01-061

healeyw01-063

Kent eventually fixes the leak. Now it's clean-up time.

healeyw01-064

healeyw01-065

healeyw01-068

Kent is still smarting from losing the fight with Rocky. So how do we deal with aggression and angst in this household?...

healeyw01-073

with art!

healeyw01-071

healeyw01-072

healeyw01-075

healeyw01-076

Kent still has a lot of pieces he needs to create in order to restock Healey Potter. Let's get cracking!

healeyw01-079

healeyw01-080

healeyw01-085

healeyw01-094

healeyw01-090

Poor Matisse spends most of her evening after work in the toilet.

healeyw01-098

Inspired by Kent's marathon pottery session, Matisse works on another painting.

healeyw01-102

Kent takes a break to wrestle with the scream queen...

healeyw01-104

Skye: You people FINALLY got the hint!

healeyw01-106

Skye: *snores*

healeyw01-107

healeyw01-108

healeyw01-111

Ooooh, I can't wait to see what Toddler Skye looks like 😄

healeyw01-113

healeyw01-116

Kent leaves his pottery wheel for a little while to run errands before it gets too late.

healeyw01-117

His first stop is Baked Bakery and Cakery to find the perfect birthday cake for his perfect little girl.

healeyw01-118

While he's here, Kent thinks, he might as well take a photo in the photo booth. Those things seem like a lot of fun.

healeyw01-119

As soon as he walks in Kent is hit with all of the yummy sweet smells.

healeyw01-121

healeyw01-124

Kent loves his photos.

Kent: We should totally get one of these machines at the house. It would be a riot!

healeyw01-127

Vivian's husband, politician Malcolm Landgraab, is having a hard time deciding which desert to take home.

healeyw01-128

Noelee approves of the gluten-free options.

healeyw01-130

Social Worker Felicity Wayward: This. Is. The Greatest Shop. EVER!

healeyw01-136

Baked's owner Paragon Barrett is happy to see his buddy Kent there.

Paragon: Don't forget to invite me to the party!

healeyw01-137

Kent: No doubt!

healeyw01-140

healeyw01-141

Kent's last stop is Goodacre's Grocery Store to restock the fridge.

healeyw01-143

healeyw01-146

healeyw01-149

healeyw01-151

************************************************************************************************************************

healeyw01-152

At home it's begun to rain.

healeyw01-153

Matisse is back to her original painting, Becca in Green on Pink.

Matisse: Um, it's a classic.

Uh-huh

healeyw01-164

Cyan is torturing Mrs. Crumplebear.

Cyan: Die, die, DIE!

healeyw01-167

She soon grows bored of stuffed bear brutality and plays with her xylophone.

healeyw01-170

healeyw01-171

Goody. Becca 5.0? I lost count now.

healeyw01-176

Time to take a break and grab some dinner.

healeyw01-179

healeyw01-182

After paying so much simoleons for taxes and groceries, Kent carefully broaches the subject of where all of their money goes. With what he makes at Healey Potter and what Matisse makes at the paper, they should have more in the bank.

healeyw01-183

Matisse: Well, you forget we have to pay §100 a day for rent. Malcolm Landgraab technically still owns this house.

healeyw01-185

healeyw01-188

There's gotta be some way out of that, thinks Kent. They shouldn't be paying rent to the richest sim in Oceanside. Especially now that they have another baby on the way.

healeyw01-189

Kent may be very granola now, but he was born a hustler. He'll figure out a way to own their house out-right.

healeyw01-190

healeyw01-191

*Missed Pop #1*

healeyw01-003

Tuesday, Day 16

"Go 'Head, It's Your Birthday"

healeyw01-002

Skye: *SHRIEKS*

healeyw01-008

Kent volunteers to feed and change Skye...

healeyw01-009

then it's back to bed for cuddle time.

healeyw01-010

Cyan: Mrs. Cwumplebear, I'm sorry I hit you. I was really angry at that baby thing. Do you think we can sell her to the Orphanage?

healeyw01-012

Matisse wakes up soon after not, really able to stay asleep. She always feels anxious during her pregnancies.

healeyw01-013

She worries that she's not eating the right things or taking care of herself the way she should. She would call Dr. Minka for an examination but she doesn't really want to see her right now.

healeyw01-015

healeyw01-016

healeyw01-020

Instead she puts all of that anxiety into her art.

healeyw01-021

Cyan does the same.

healeyw01-024

healeyw01-025

healeyw01-023

Cyan: Yay, Mommy!

healeyw01-026

Matisse proudly displays it in the kitchen with the other two plates she created.

healeyw01-030

Now that Kent's up it's time to throw Skye her Transition Party!

healeyw01-033

Not everysim was invited. With all of the conflict going on between Minka and Matisse's brother, Kent thought it best not to invite her. Blood is thicker than water after all.

healeyw01-034

healeyw01-035

healeyw01-036

healeyw01-037

healeyw01-039

Kent gets started on grilling the tofu dogs. He's stoked his buddy Paragon could make it. He knows how busy he is at the bakery.

healeyw01-041

Nico Firestone and Faith Goodacre are the first to start the Toddler Hugglefest. Gwyneth Landgraab doesn't seem all that impressed.

healeyw01-042

Faith's sister, Holly Goodacre, is the first to play in the leaves!

healeyw01-043

Matisse: Don't be scared, Baby Skye. It's real easy. I just throw you up a baby and you come back down a toddler!

Skeptical Skye is Skeptical.

healeyw01-047

Cyan catches the attention of her uncle Musician Kendrick Troubadour. She loves getting to spend time with him.

healeyw01-048

Chef George Lambswool is embarrassingly stuck in the middle of Malcolm singing the praises of his wife.

healeyw01-050

Tofu dogs are ready!

healeyw01-055

And so are Matisse and Skye!

healeyw01-058

Paragon: Old married chicks in bikinis are gross!

healeyw01-059

Seamstress Dawn Lambswool: Do you want me to shove this noise-maker down your throat?!

Paragon: nn-no ma'am...

healeyw01-060

Dawn's the first to get the birthday party started.

healeyw01-064

healeyw01-070

healeyw01-078

Up a baby...

healeyw01-084

Down a toddler!

healeyw01-090

See, nothing to be afraid of Skye!

healeyw01-096

Skye is a beauty just like her sister. I feel some serious sibling rivalry happening between these two.

healeyw01-097

Matisse begins to ponder the otherworldly experience it is to transition ages. How does it happen? Who makes the call? Is there really somesim out in the depths of their little universe watching over them? Maybe this is something she could write about in the paper.

healeyw01-099

Nico's getting all of the attention from the ladies today! This time he huggles Cyan and Skye's cousin Poem Mason-Troubadour.

healeyw01-100

As the guests make their way to the food...

healeyw01-101

Matisse makes her way to the bathroom to do something with all of that hair.

healeyw01-103

Antonio Lambswool: Mommy... Daddy... Hello?

healeyw01-105

There we go! Now it's wrapped in a pretty bow. Skye Troubadour-Healey is a 5-8-2-8-7 Libra who's highly interested in toys. She's an Eco-Friendly (Matisse) Social Butterfly (Kent). She got her freckles and dimples from her Dad and her wavy hair from her Mom.

healeyw01-106

Luckily Cyan missed how pretty how sister turned out.

healeyw01-108

healeyw01-109

healeyw01-113

*Paragon & Kent BFFs*

healeyw01-111

Here she is, ready for her close-up!

healeyw01-114

The Lambswools continue to traumatize their children.

healeyw01-115

Faith is a hugger! Here she cuddles with Cyan and Skye's other cousin, Aria Mason-Troubadour.

healeyw01-121

healeyw01-129

Kendrick: You know, I let Minka win that fight. I couldn't be known as the guy who beats up women!

Yeah, no one believes you Kendrick. Especially since you were the one that jumped her.

healeyw01-130

pretty-mf

healeyw01-138

Skye makes her way to the coloring table for the first time and seems a bit lost. Maybe she's not as artistic as the rest of the family.

healeyw01-144

Malcolm and Kent's team must be doing pretty bad.

healeyw01-152

A few scribbles later and voila! Skye's first masterpiece.

healeyw01-146

A sisterly huggle from Holly and Eve Goodacre.

healeyw01-155

healeyw01-156

healeyw01-159

Kent picks up his new little toddler for the first time. He's overcome with pure love and joy.

healeyw01-160

He was a little worried before when he found out Matisse was expecting again, but now he's glad they forgot to put soda in the woohoo. He would be happy to have a hundred more of these little miracles.

healeyw01-163

*Dad and Daughter Besties*

healeyw01-162

healeyw01-167

healeyw01-168

healeyw01-173

healeyw01-172

Cyan: I haven't heard that baby in a while. Maybe one of the party guests took it home with them!

healeyw01-178

Kent returns to his clay.

healeyw01-180

Risa the Raccoon stops by for a visit.

healeyw01-181

healeyw01-182

There's the screaming. We missed it so much...

healeyw01-190

A free-roaming Cyan finds Malcolm out on his nightly stroll.

Cyan: Me up!

healeyw01-191

Malcolm is a sucker for cute little babies.

healeyw01-194

healeyw01-195

This one is extra special. It's his gift to Matisse for being such an awesome girlfriend and mother 😊

healeyw01-197

Then he tends to Skye.

healeyw01-198

It's time for Skye to start Potty Training 101.

healeyw01-200

Skye: I have a bad feeling about this...

healeyw01-199

OK Cyan, you have to stop barfing on the Landgraabs!

healeyw01-205

Kent catches Malcolm before he leaves and steers the conversation towards the condo.

Kent: You don't really need the rent from this place. You should sign over the deed to us!

Malcolm: Why would I do that. That's not smart business?

healeyw01-206

Kent: If you do, I won't tell anysim that you cheated on your wife with my Matisse. That information could ruin your career. No one wants to vote for a cheater for Mayor! Come on, it's the least you can do.

healeyw01-208

Malcolm: I don't think I like you...

healeyw01-212

healeyw01-213

Needless to say, Kent's blackmailing scheme worked. Malcolm signed over the deed to the house to Matisse. The Troubadour-Healey family no longer has to pay rent to the Landgraabs.

healeyw01-215

healeyw01-220

Kent celebrates his victory by rewarding himself with a slice of birthday pie.

Kent: Hmph, and they say I'm "Not Too Bright!"

I take it all back, Einstein.

healeyw01-223

Malcolm celebrates his defeat by soaking in their hot tub.

healeyw01-224

healeyw01-225

Wednesday, Day 17

"My Big Fat Home Remodel"

healeyw01-002

Not able to sleep through the night again, Matisse wakes up early to finish painting. She's stopped half-way through for *Pop #2!*

healeyw01-004

As she paints Condo On The Beach #2, Matisse's thoughts go to her conversation with Kent earlier. He was right about them not having a lot of money. With the new baby coming the tiny condo would be cramped even more. Just what she needs, she thought, more things to be worried and anxious about.

Maybe a little cleaning will help get her mind off of her troubles.

healeyw01-009

Skye: Hi Sis, look, I grew up!

Cyan: Why is this thing talking to me. And why is it BY MY XYLOPHONE!!??

healeyw01-013

Skye: *tries to sleep*

Cyan: *BANGS LOUDLY ON THE XYLOPHONE!*

healeyw01-017

Cyan: Muhahaha! How does it feel?!

Oh boy. This is going to be a problem.

healeyw01-021

Matisse returns to the pottery wheel...

healeyw01-022

healeyw01-023

and adds another cute plate to her collection.

As they sleep the powers that be (namely me) work tirelessly to remodel their old condo into an artist's paradise.

healeyw01-036

17 Oceanside Boulevard is now a four bedroom, three bathroom bungalow filled with color and light...

healeyw01-045

healeyw01-044

with it's own art studio in the back!

*Quick Tour*

healeyw01-050

The entryway has a small desk...

healeyw01-049

and a credenza with stairs leading to the second floor.

healeyw01-047

healeyw01-048

The kitchen sits on the other side of the entryway and is divided with a wall of paned glass.

healeyw01-051

healeyw01-052

The living room...

healeyw01-053

healeyw01-055

and the dinning room.

healeyw01-056

A beaded curtain leads to...

healeyw01-058

Matisse and Kent's bedroom...

healeyw01-063

healeyw01-064

and bath.

healeyw01-066

Upstairs leads to the children's bedrooms.

healeyw01-068

Cyan's bedroom...

healeyw01-069

healeyw01-071

healeyw01-074

and Skye's.

healeyw01-075

healeyw01-077

healeyw01-078

The new baby's room will be decorated after it's born. Both of the girls' room have en suite bathrooms.

healeyw01-083

Out back is the new art studio! Here's a place for Kent...

healeyw01-082

and a place for Matisse!

healeyw01-084

There's even a spot for the kidlets!

healeyw01-081

Kent splurged and got himself a photo booth! He just had to have one.

*************************************************************************************************************************

healeyw01-086

Skye: Sissy, we got a new house! Let's huggle!

healeyw01-089

Cyan: Don't think this means I like you, Girly.

healeyw01-091

Kent surveys the new surroundings. He likes what he sees.

healeyw01-094

Kent rushes to the art studio to try out his pottery wheel in the new space.

healeyw01-095

healeyw01-096

The girls excitedly explore their new digs.

healeyw01-101

Cyan finds her room and a comfy new rug on the floor to sleep on.

healeyw01-103

healeyw01-104

healeyw01-105

Kent makes another huge "jug" and places it in the dining room.

healeyw01-109

Then he has his first meal in the new space.

healeyw01-111

healeyw01-113

After a quick potty training session...

healeyw01-116

Kent is back in the studio...

healeyw01-119

and Skye takes a nap in her room.

healeyw01-121

Matisse wakes up to a whole new house!

Matisse: What the Plumbob?!

healeyw01-123

healeyw01-124

healeyw01-125

Seriously, Kent is just making items for the house now. He wants to fill it with both his and Matisse's bright and colorful creations.

healeyw01-128

Matisse is so happy that she, at least, doesn't have to worry about space for the new baby.

healeyw01-139

Kent really did it! He got Malcolm to give them the condo and renovated it into the coolest house on the island. Matisse's respect for Kent just skyrocketed.

healeyw01-140

healeyw01-142

healeyw01-144

SHE DID IT! SHE DID IT!

healeyw01-146

Now Matisse can quit her job at the paper and become a full-time artiste!

healeyw01-147

Our third Arts & Crafts NPC is created.

healeyw01-148

Matisse hangs her Arts & Crafts plaque proudly beside her easel.

healeyw01-151

healeyw01-152

healeyw01-154

To celebrate Matisse's new achievement, Kent tries his hand at a dish Chef George always raves about, Risotto with Peas.

healeyw01-156

Oh dear.

healeyw01-158

Awww, you tried sweetheart. *gold star*

healeyw01-161

Skye likes being able to color with Mommy inside -- away from the freezing winter chill.

healeyw01-166

healeyw01-167

After finishing Condo On The Beach #2...

healeyw01-163

healeyw01-164

Matisse starts her new profession.

healeyw01-165

Well, after the baby's born, that is.

healeyw01-169

Kent greets his buddy Mechanic Connor Firestone and invites him in for dinner.

healeyw01-171

healeyw01-172

*Best Friends*

healeyw01-178

Connor passes on the meal to watch the soccer match.

healeyw01-180

It's a good thing, too!

healeyw01-181

healeyw01-183

healeyw01-189

It's getting late so Kent says goodnight to his new bestie.

healeyw01-190

Matisse wants to take a photo in the booth to match Kent's.

healeyw01-191

healeyw01-193

Matisse giggles at the silly pictures. Good call, Kent!

healeyw01-197

They would love it if every time they had a guest over they would take photos in the booth. Then they could have a wall of family and friends being goofy!

What? You wanted to see the baby being born? Well, it's not supposed to happen until Spring at 2am! Oh, alright. 😆

healeyw01-212

Matisse: Sul-sul!!

healeyw01-232

healeyw01-235

healeyw01-237

Welcome to the family boys! I don't know how Cyan is going to take this...

Notes

  • Sadie's behavior at Healey Potter cracked me up. She just stood around and people watched. She definitely had her eye on Kent and his goings-on.
  • This was my first Risky Woohoo baby (or babies)! Of course it would be Matisse 😛
  • If you're wondering why there's no Cindy Lou -- no, I didn't kill her -- but I did teleport her off of the lot every time she showed up. I didn't have the patience for her this time around.

Thank you for reading!! ^.^

It's always a pleasure to catch up with Oceanside updates.
And, aw, that time has come when the original "Condos on the Beach" have become too small for the household.

Hi Lili! And thank you :)
Yep, almost all of the condos have been renovated now. My little town is growing fast. *tear*
