OCTOBER 2015: Diana Lind

October 2015: Diana Lind

Diana Oct 2015

Diana Lind is 23.


Fredrick and I have been dating for  a while now, things are better than they ever have been. We even managed to get a non silly picture done in the photo booth.

I was surprised after one of our midweek dates Frederick came home with me.  He usually has to work nights but he had the night off.

I really wasn't expecting it but Frederick proposed.  I know I want to spend the rest of my life with him I just didn't think marriage would come so soon.  

Date Night
I love that we are engaged, he really has changed since our university days. No need to rush into the wedding.

Girls Night
Our engagement was a great excuse to have a girls night out and share my news.

Ladies Night out
We started with a fancy dinner out. Miriam kept going on about the flowers.  I don’t even know what time of year to have the wedding.

Next we headed out for some dancing.  It was fairly quiet when we first go to the club but it did fill up later in the evening.

Madison spent most of the evening on this gravity thing.  It looked like a lot of fun, maybe next time I’ll get a chance to try it.

Saturday Morning
The next morning I’m not sure why I got out of bed.  I spent most of it on the sofa

September 2015: Birthdays

1st Trimester[2]
Meadow is finding she is getting a lot slower and tired as her pregnancy progresses.  People keep asking if she's having twins, she's not just one baby for her and Henry.  Meadow is still working but she's not sure how long she can keep going.
I made a few changes in my game play so I am now aging up my teens at 12.
There will be five more additions to Chantilly Upper School.  Lana Connor, Matthew  Pitts, Nicholas Gorey, Molly Lind and Tina Traveller.

Lana Connor loves learning just like her Dad but she wants to be an athlete.  She hasn't told her parents yet as she doesn't know how they will take it.

Matthew Pitts is a popularity sim and wants a large family similar to what he grew up with.  As to career aspirations he hasn't figured that out yet.

Nicholas Gorey has a few contradictory traits, he loves fitness and yet is overweight.  He wants to join the military so he figures they can pay his way through University.

Molly Lind is outgoing for a knowledge sim and wants to go into the Entertainment industry.  For now she is focusing on getting her first kiss.

Tina Traveller likes to be in the middle of things and unlike her hippy parents wants to go into the business world.

September 2015: McArthur

September 2015: Larry McArthur is 58, Catherine McArthur is 56 and Jasmine McArthur is 5.   

New Clothes
Catherine: With Jasmine now in Kindergarten I decided to take her out for the day and get some new clothes.

Mum & Daughter lunch
After shopping we went to a new diner down the street from our place for lunch.

Next was the playground.

Jasmine play
Jasmine could spend all day at the playground if I let her.

Jasmine 2015
Even though she’s not a toddler anymore she still likes many of the same things.  She still love’s music and dancing.

She’s getting really good at painting too.

Not that she gets much but Jasmine is really good about doing her homework.  Sometimes she will ask for help but usually she just gets right to it when she gets off the school bus.

Larry and I decided it had been too long since we had been out just the two of us.  Penny was home from University so she and Jasmine had a sister’s night in and we headed out to the local Karaoke bar.  It wasn’t a busy night but it was still a lot of fun.

Larry insisted on getting sill photos taken at the photo both.  Once upon a time that wouldn't have been what we would have done in the photo booth.

end date
A lot has changed over the years but I always love spending time with Larry.

  • I realize that Jasmine looks crazy tall for a 5 year old, the pose box I used raised her up and even with an omsp I couldn't get her any lower.  I'm just pretending that she was standing on a stool.

September 2015: Pitt’s–Thayer Wedding

Meadow:  We didn’t have a large wedding, I was nervous enough with just the family and a few friends.

The ceremony was short and sweet, no long vows like some weddings we have been to.

Now we are officially Mr. and Mrs. Thayer, yep Henry decided to take my name, he has three brothers that can carry on the Pitt’s name.

Anthony and Hannah made short speeches but still managed to embarrass us a bit.  We've all been friends for so long there were bound to be stories.

Pillow Fight
Henry, being the goof he is managed to hide away a pillow and started a pillow fight before dinner. 

Family Dinner
For dinner Henry sat with his parents and his younger brother Matthew (he hid from the camera every time it came close).

Ladies Dinner
I sat with my ladies, Hannah, Tamara and Addison.

Friends Dinner
No surprise that Diana was at a table with all the guys.  I dont’ think Frederick was worried.  They seem to only have eyes for each other these days.

The DJ was great and we all danced the night away.

Dance Goof
In true Henry fashion he started dancing like a goof.

Who am I to argue, I joined in the goofy dancing.  Three months pregnant and it was a great night.

August 2014: Tamara and Jacob


August 2014:
Tamara Newson is 23 and Jacob Flylar is 22.

My job is going well.  Daniel Becker is taking over the downtown school and I had him over to discuss plans for the new year.  Although I’m an art teacher Daniel thought I would be good choice to coach the soccer teams.

One evening I invited two of the student teachers over for dinner so Daniel and I could get them up to speed about plans for the new school year.

Jacob is determined to work his way up from dishwasher at the diner.  He is hoping to impress his boss with some of his cooking, I'm  not sure how much that really matters at a diner but.

Jacob has been bar tending a few nights a week at a seedy bar but the extra cash helps.

Justin often comes over in the mornings when he doesn't have a practice and Jacob is doing the dinner schedule.

I do think Jacob spends a little too much of his spare time playing video games.

I called him on his gaming addiction, he just got up and walked away.

We finally had a chance to go on a date but the music was loud and Jacob didn’t seem to want to talk about anything. 

Jacob was given a chance to cook at the diner.  The regular chef is going on vacation and he was putting Jacob through the regular routine and giving him a chance before he will be left on his own. 

I came home from one of my planning sessions and found Jacob just staring out the window.  I worried that something had gone wrong at work but he said no and was very quiet for the rest of the evening.  I still don’t know what ‘s wrong.
