Decided to settle on a "classic beauty" sort of look for miss Cypress. She is definitely a Mommy-clone. She does have lighter eyes, and Harri's skin tone though. Her face is just a TOUCH rounder than Layla's and her hair is Layla's original colour, but she has... light eyebrows (don't know if those were random or came from Harris).
So of course she still has a wish to hang out with Loki and I immediately call him over. I was really hoping to lock him down for her, but sadly she did NOT wish anything more than regular romantic actions.
They are so cute together that it hurts.
Layla, perhaps pondering the vestiges of her youth (ok... so her and Harris are on aging-off) and seeing her daughters exciting new forays into romance.....
Ok. Yes, so Harris is at work more... but No. You leave him alone. Handsome bugger that he is. Not for you.
Of course the minute Layla gets home from her date she has to give Rowan hell for... whatever he did this time around. Probably trying to set pranks right in front of her again.
And here is a typical scene in the house. Cypress being chill and jamming, and Rowan... hang dog and in trouble... yet AGAIN. Seriously, he is going to be the WORST criminal mastermind.
"HEY! I'm a rebel and I'm going to be awesome... as soon as people stop catching me doing bad things."
"What are YOU looking at? Servant."
Oh Ro... you know that Andre just delights in your struggles. Don't add flames to the fire. Besides... look at him!! Poor guy.
I feel for ya man... always dealing with crying babies.
"So... you'll be moving out soon then?"
"Yeah well... I gotta get a job first. I want to be a creature-robot crossbreeder... so... I should probably get back to my homework."
Ugh I hate when they do their homework right before aging up. I want to scream THERES NO POINT!
Sniff sniiffffff Happy Birthday baby!!! I can't believe the day has come!!
So with so many kids in the house its hard for anyone to spend as much time together as they should, and of course Harris and Layla are still like newlyweds and sneak off to christen every bed/shower in the house at the drop of a hat.
Cypress chooses this moment to show her Mom a funny video on her smartphone. (All new EP's mean a whole lot more testing of interactions, sorry guys!!)
What the heck are you eating?
Ugh... what? Whyyyyyy?
Layla as always picks the perfect moment to serenade her children... while one is on the can and the other is sleeping. A+ parenting.
I built a little outdoor show venue, because there is a lack of large lots left in Aurora Skies. Harris... sigh... Harris Harris Harris. Of course his wish is to Woohoo in an all-in-one toilet. So... nothing says romance like a bit of dirty public toilet woohoo.
"WHAT? Its sexy."
Layla wants a bit more romance so I get her to take a cute picture and then of course... one thing leads to another...
"Awwwwww look how cute we are Harris!!!"
"You're so sexy Layla..." (pouncing on his opportunity)
"Let's make a baby!"
That's what I say.
Oh god, please don't look that smug about luring your weak-willed wife into a public toilet for loving.
"You're just jealous."
That's besides the point. 5 babies is enough.
"No amount of babies is enough."
Well... she does look pretty pleased... must have been fun in there... jerks. Rubbing it in our faces that after 5 kids they still cant keep their grubby little hands off each other.
Layla wishes to eat at the bistro with Harris... but somehow this doesn't work out and Harris ends up eating alone while she wanders the opposite end of the building.
"Gotta get my carbs in! Replenish my energy for work."
Shut up Harris. We all know you're a non-stop love machine. That's quite enough.
"You're totally jealous."
And THAT is TOTALLY besides the point.
"Come here Junie let me STEAL YOUR CANDY!!!"
Oh Rowan... you know her and Sass are the only family members that like you right now.
"And that's why I give her TICKLES after!!!" (All autonomous)
Harris wants to hang out with Sherman, so I invite him to... the gym? Harris had never been there and I thought it might be cool.
Uhhh... this gym sucks... this is one of THE worst gyms I've ever seen. So I get sidetracked re-vamping it. For no reason other than... I feel like it!!
New floor plan includes a juice bar, seating area, toddler play area, and gym equipment upgrades. I have to say I love the ITF all in one bathrooms. For the places where you never really see the washroom, or ever WISH to see the washroom they are an awesome space saver.
Exterior. I'm a sucky builder, so this is pretty good for me. I even played with the roofing! Better than my usual rectangles!!
Back to inside.. where apparently everyone is having a really sucky time.
Harris too is having... a really awful time. Though he does manage to chat with Sherman and that meets his wishes so back home with you!!
Banyan gets sent off for some reason or another. And this is where I find him. Just you know... chillin in the grass by a boulder, no biggie. There are a bunch of people there, kids too, but apparently he's happier this way.
The sunset is GORGEOUS and I rarely get pics of Banyan, so... isn't is beautiful?!?! I love it.
Amidst all this I upgraded the game so now all of a sudden I have 5 EP's that I didn't have before. To say I'm overwhelmed is... an understatement. There aren't a lot of lots open so I end up building a tiny outdoor show venue. Cypress checks it out for me, and of course... meets a guy.
He's too old for her... and I think he's an NPC... but still.. hmmmmmmm
