Gabby and Jeromy announced that they are expecting their 1st child!
Owen (youngest son of Dorian & Nikole) is dating Dorothy Vela.
Widow Lynda is dating Terrence Joy.
Kisha (daughter of Kyra & Toby) celebrates a birthday and is a teen!
The ghosts are also up, staying out longer than normal because they love to rock…
Addy’s Note: Whichever ghost comes out to play makes a beeline for these rockers EVERY day!
A quick trip to the photo booth has the family in smiles as they hang another family photo on the wall.
Grace decides a family cookout would be enjoyable and invites her siblings over.
Kristy opens the door with a smile to invite everybody in, but Jeromy stops her to discuss the lovely landscaping.
Gabe steps up and enters the conversation.
Neither seem pleased with the other and Kristy quickly realized that this must have been part of the reason Gabby moved out of the place she shared with her siblings.
Kristy tries to diffuse the situation and encourages them both to come inside, hoping that things will settle down as they mingle with others.
Gabby corners Nate in the kitchen, asking about lunch. Professional athletes sure do have a big appetite!
They’re also pretty competitive as Gabby then challenged Nate to a breathing contest.
A relaxing Leisure Day is exactly what everyone needed!
Grace calls out, “Food’s ready. Come and get it!”
Eating outside is lovely and the fact that guests clean up after themselves is much appreciated, but they never seem to go to the kitchen where the dishwasher is located. Nate had to repair two different sinks after this meal… not how he imagined spending his Leisure Day, I’m sure!
Everybody seemed to spending their holiday day together. No sunburns, good moods everywhere and the hot dog platter was licked clean (will be kind and not mention which slob did it, but I think y’all already know who! **wink**)
Things were winding down and Sims were getting ready to leave when the doorbell rang.
Addy’s Note: I forgot about trick-or-treat happening every holiday in this game! It’s funny what the game will consider a costume. I can’t tell if Kristy is telling him that a ghost is a real costume or trying to spook him so she could grab a piece of candy from his bucket LOL
