Tom: 7.11 “Bad Day?”

Last time with the Diffys, Tom had an argument with Leslie and Christine had her birthday into a teen. This time…


Christine is getting started on her charisma.


Gwen:ย Have yourself a merry little Snowflake Day.

Since it is Snowflake Day, Gwen is throwing a party.


Haven’t had a Snowflake Day party in a while, so this will be fun. Kim and Ny are the first to arrive.


Christine: “Hi, great-grandma!”


Nyota: “Hey, Mom!”

Ny isn’t pregnant here, she’s just stuck in those clothes.


After dropping off her present, Kim wanders off to the underground tomb to mourn. (I have never shown this room before because I just kinda plopped the urns down here).

Tom: “Grandma, what are you doing down here?”


Kim: “I don’t know; I guess I just feel nostalgic whenever I come back to this lot. Even though the old house is gone, I still have a lot of memories here.”


Kim: “Have you heard about Darrin?”

Tom: “Yeah, I was kind of upset about that, actually. He was one of my good friends, and we always played online together. But today is Snowflake Day; it only comes around so many times, and we should go enjoy it.”

Tom’s words remind her of what her mother told her on her very first Snowflake Day right after her grandmother Emily had died. She has seen many more Snowflake Days than most people, but agrees to rejoin the party.


Her outlook is still dark even as several partygoers take pictures of her.


Ana is here and she’s all grown up! I think she’s quite pretty and has unique features.


Leonard got coal, but he’s not mad about it.


Christine ended up getting two painting easels.


She also made good friends with Anna Templeton, who is related to Shirley Templeton in some way, but more importantly is a granddaughter of Jane, Kim’s sister, which is where she gets her hair from.


Anna: “I’m glad we finally get to hang out outside of school.”

Christine: “Me, too. School has been so crazy lately, so I’m glad we finally got a holiday. Anyway, I wanted to tell you something.”


Christine: “Alex Supine called me, and we talked over the phone.”

Anna: “Wait, not a text? Was that awkward?”


Christine: “No! Why would it be?”

Anna: “It’s just guys don’t usually call like that.”

Christine: “Yeah, but we really liked talking together.”


At the end of the party, Tom decided to give Christina a scare.


Tom: “Eeeeeeverything you know is wrong!”


Christine: “At least most people have gone home.”

Yep, no one saw that, except me. >:)


Christine started using one of her new easels immediately.


Sad news, Gwen’s mom died. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ She was pretty cool whenever she came over.


It’s Leonard’s birthday, so he invited Ana out for dinner and a movie.


They ended up eating at separate tables. >.<


And this was the only romantic interaction they could do together.


Leonard: “I’m really glad that we’ll be the same age again. We’ll be able to do everything together!”


Anastasia: “I know! And I can’t wait to buy a house with you so we can be together!”


Ana ran off right before his age up, so we only had strangers celebrating.


Leonard gains the workaholic trait, which is added on to perceptive, genius, friendly, and hot-headed. And despite Ana’s mention of him becoming a doctor, his LTW is Forensic Specialist, because I think that fits better with the combination of perceptive and genius.


Better pic at home in the light. He looks just like Gwen, but it appears he has Tom’s skintone only not as dark (maybe? Not too sure about that one), and of course throwback Wanda hair.

Leonard: “Buy a house?”


It’s springtime! Hello, gnomes!


Now that he’s all grown up, Leonard invites Ana to the beach.

Leonard: “What you said yesterday really had me thinking. So you want to live together?”

Anastasia: “Of course! I mean, if you want to. I just thought that’s what we were heading towards.”


Leonard: “No, I agree. So I wanted to ask you…”


Leonard: “Why don’t we just make it official? Will you marry me?”


Anastasia: “Yes! Put that ring on me!”


Distracted by the shiny.

Leonard then moved out so that he and Ana could go house hunting.


You’re pretty.




YOU’RE FREAKING ME OUT! Stop watching my Sims!

Norma Ruth: “They’ll pay! THEY’LL ALL PAY … me in tips as I busk.”


Oh. Okay, then.


Anyway, Christine is here at the park to see Alex.


And this girl is really mad at him because he’s supposed to be dating her sister.


Faith Meyers: “Why are boys so STUPID?!”

(Yes, that is Leonard in the background moonlighting at the kissing booth. Guess he needs the money.)


Christine: “Wait, are you really dating someone else? I didn’t know that.”


Alex: “No, of course not. We just went on one little date, but that’s it.”

Christine: “Oh, okay.”


Alex left after not too long, giving me the popup that it was a terrible date. Whatever, Alex.


And this old guy decided to die in front of the food stands.


So with that, I’m calling it here.

Next time: Tom has a talk with Ben and then they hold a little family meeting.

  1. *ahem*

    IWASDRIVINGontheFREEWAYintheFASTLANEwithaRABIDWOLVERINEinmyUNDERWAREwhenSUDDENLY theguybehindme(inthebackseat)poppedrightupandputhishandsacrossmyEYES!… ad infinitum. I freaking love that song, so thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Okay now more important thingies! I love Tom’s snowflake t-shirt, that’s adorable. Ana is still incredibly cute and she’s looking forward to a future with Leonard but not watching him get there! LOL I always wished they didn’t have to get romance interaction up so high for the backrub, doesn’t it make sense that they could do less kissy things like that? But nope, they get the most awkward selfies imaginable.

    Leonard looks great as an adult! That hair suits him for some reason.

    ((oh yeah and what the heck is a ‘vanilla’ sim? I keep seeing the term tossed around))

    1. Is it someone who loves Weird Al as much as me???! Honestly people just think I’m weird for knowing like every word to a lot of his songs (which is funny).

      Glad you like the shirt! I thought I kinda got carried away putting him in different patterns all the time.

      Ugh, I hate that she left so soon! They really have a high relationship, so I didn’t expect her to run off. And it makes it more awkward that sims will literally run away. Sorry, I didn’t clarify about the romantic interactions thing. I don’t have mods in for romance between adults and teens, so that’s why they could only do the awkward selfie. xD

      Usually when people talk about having a vanilla game, they mean without mods or custom content, so I think that’s what a vanilla sim is, meaning no custom content used? (or in the context of the “berry”/colorful sims community, it could mean “regular” sims who aren’t fantasy colors)


    1. I’m happy for Leonard! I like Ana a lot. And glad you guys like the t-shirt. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Lol, I heard that you get those springtime gnomes when your sims woohoo during the springtime. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Kim is usually sad. She feels like she’s been around for much longer than she was meant to. I feel bad that she autonomously goes to mourn at the graves. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Thanks for reading!

  2. Oh wow, Leonard turned out stunning! Gwen and Tom’s genetics really mash well, it seems. And lol at sim dates being sim dates and running off at inconvenient times or declaring they had a horrible date without reason. Gotta love those dates. XD

    That clown face is terrifying. *shudders* I’m not sure I’d give her a tip wearing that face, no matter how good her music is.

    Aww, Kim. I’m starting to feel sorry for her every time I see her. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Maybe she’s trying to tell you something… XP

    1. I really love all their kids, and I’m glad that Leo got Wanda’s hair because I think it suits him.

      Lol, it’s like, “Every interaction we had together went well, and you paid attention to me the whole time, but I want to leave early, so it was terrible.” Kinda sounds like the date was terrible because of you, but whatever. xD

      There was something about the clown face added on top of her happening to have red hair and a perfectly matching outfit that made it all the worse for me.

      Yeah, Kim is definitely trying to tell me something. I’m going to have to do something with her by the end of the legacy, but I’m not sure what.

      Thanks for reading!


  3. Alex is r00d. I wonder if it was more than just one date… hmm, well maybe they’ll have a happily ever after anyway.
    Norma in all that make up is terrifying. Normally I don’t mind clown make up but that is… too much!
    I feel so bad for Kim. Does she want to move on? Hmm, maybe she needs to find a new path in life.
    also, wow, you have so many bunny gnomes!

    1. This was their first date, and they have another date next chapter. I was getting annoyed with him, though. >:I

      I don’t hold anything against clowns, but the way she was wearing it was kinda freaky lol.

      I think Kim partly wants to move on, but doesn’t know how. She would also feel guilty leaving her family when she had the option to stay. Yeah, she probably does need something to break things up for her.

      Lots of springtime woohoo means lots of bunny gnomes. xD

      Thanks for reading!

  4. Tom is such a great dad, scaring his daughter like that. XD

    D’awww, poor Leonard. That selfie is pretty cute, though. And then he got to age up and propose to her so yay! I’m happy for them.

    Gahhh! Vampire clown!! Is she one of the town’s premades?

  5. Aw, I was hoping Leo would be your heir this time ๐Ÿ˜‰ But Christine is pretty cool too. Alex seems off… he should have mentioned he was seeing another girl, even if it was just one date. Or was he lying about that?? o.o

    Vamp clown is terrifying, thanks.
