Bob Newbie has become the friend maker. Bob Newbie is also now the only one with a job because Betty missed work two days in a row.



Their first skunk because I can't keep the house clean even with a maid.



They bought two little birds.



Bob managed to become friends with Bella Goth.



Claire the bear made a bee line straight for the beehive.



It didn't work out so well for Claire.



We also have a bunny problem. While I do not have any carrot patches so they do not actually eat anything, I see them hop around every once in a while, watching, waiting, counting down the hours until I decide to grow carrots, which I already know will not be happening.



Thanks to the beeswax I have been harvesting I was able to make a charm so we got the charm making machine.



The charms are pretty.



I didn't realize you had to bang the thing off the machine.



This charm is for Beauty or Beast



Betty went really small and then really big, I missed the really small part.



There were not a lot of options for beauty (since the charm worked) so I went with this. I guess it is beautiful. The more magic I have her do on lot the more likely they are to get magical growth things like crystals or the bean stalk which is what I really want.



Getting more beeswax



This also makes honey which is cool.



At this point the camera started not taking pictures even when I told it to and the problem was rather random so I am getting annoyed with it. I was seriously considering starting the whole game over (because I am just like that to myself) but I haven't and I am trying really hard not to let a few hiccups make me uninstall and re-install the game, even though I really want to right now.



I am not sure when but the birds died inside of two weeks Sim time of play. I swear I fed them every day.



I decided to get the grapes and elderberry sprigs and see how that went, I think we can make wine at some point but right now I am just trying everything out a bit.



More camera not working. She actually did this for a little while and has been making a lot of magic coins. In fact, she had enough magic coins to buy...



... a dragon



Who turned into a pyro



Seriously, a pyro.



And he eats all of their flowers, oh well, they were taking too long to take care of anyway.



I had her buy two more dragons to see if I could get the other two types of dragons but no such luck, they were all pyro dragons.

So at this point I would really like to start over.  Making it through week six is actually pretty good for me but I feel like I should have waited a little while to get the dragon and I should have read the book again on how not to get the pyro dragon because that is dangerous to have around.  I am not really sure what to do and I guess we will all know what I decided when I next post about The Sims.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Lol i didnt realise their were 3 types of dragons!!

With the elderberry sprigs etc did you have to water them etc or just wait until they were ready to harvest?

you are making me want to break out my discs!

There are actually three types of dragons if I remember what I read correctly. One of them is supposed to be really well behaved which is what I wanted but I was happy to get a dragon period.

You do have to "tend" and "water" the elderberry sprigs so it is like the regular gardening.

"you are making me want to break out my discs!"

hahahahaha If you have space on your computer the nice thing about is no one grows old. The bad thing about it, children never become adults unless you use the correct spell from Makin' Magic. I have been enjoying playing all three versions of the game I just wish I would have gone a bit slower on what they were getting into with Bob and Betty Newbie since they have had several close calls. It is one of my weaknesses when playing.
oh i forgot to say "lol poor claire!" she was so cute!!

I think i had a semi well behaved one.. i think it may have only set fire to something once or twice but that was so long ago!

hmmm i think i should :D
I am used to Claire the bear going to the garbage can so I was surprised, but amused, when she went to the beehive.

I was right, three types of dragons - http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon - at least now I know what I was doing wrong.
haha ok so i had the red one... ooops.. guess we didnt show them enough love!!

awww i miss Claire the bear and there was some other weird character wasnt there?

There is the really sad clown and if you do not throw good parties you get a mime (which I always get). If you throw a good party you get a hidden Drew Carey Sim. There are probably others but that is all I can think of right now.
god throwing parties in sims sucked badly i kept on getting bad. How are you suppose to get a great party?!?
