My lovely bride is a jack of all trades. She's constantly working on one project or another. Here she's working on some curtains for our bedroom.
Our daughter Adelle has jumped right into the family business. Already she's up to a Silver badge in building floral arrangements!
She's also quite good with the customers. She always seems to know what to recommend for their wants. Already, between Adelle's salesmanship, my cashier work, and Christa's floral arrangements, we have brought our family business up to level 8!
As I mentioned, Christa is always working on one project or another. She recently brought home this old car and insisted that she could return it to it's former glory. With our bank account growing, I couldn't say no, as it didn't cost much and it made her smile to work on it.
He jumped right into earning his first badge with floral arrangement and also earned the attention of the "Underground Art Group". Christa tells me this is not the name they go by, but as covert as they act, I can't imagine any other name!
Adelle continues to work on her sales technique..
And her restocking abilities, while Baxter works on his sales techniques...
And Christa works on her cash register abilities. Where do I fit in all of this?...
We close the shop on Sunday's and spend the day together as a family. Christa's been telling me I've been spending far too much time at the telescope but I enjoy finding new constellations and discovering new stars and planets. Well, I spent a little too much time at the telescope one Sunday. Hence the first picture in this report of mine.
The kids were worried about me and why I'd suddenly disappeared while looking through the scope. Though both of our children are Knowledge Sims, neither has the desire to meet any Aliens. Christa explained to them what happened, but they couldn't believe that we'd be happy about it!
Of course when I was dropped back off by my new friends, Christa was thrilled to pieces and had a fistful of questions for me. I was happy to tell her all about it...with one exception. My friends from Strangetown were right...but maybe..
I'd noticed that I'd started to gain a bit of weight and thought that it was just a matter of spending a few extra minutes on the stationary bike each day...
But then I'd started to get sick to my stomach...
And the telltale signs of a larger belly, one matching Christa's appeared!
Meanwhile, Christa's gestational period quickly came to an end..
And in our pristine kitchen, she gave birth to our second daughter, Catherine.
Meanwhile, I took advantage of Catherine's sleep pattern and slept when I could. It looks like I'm going to have to make a few additions to our our ever growing home. Adelle will be heading off to TRU soon, which will open up her bedroom. I only hope that Twin Ridge will welcome our Alien child into their lives!
