Generation Reese Episode 33- The silver lining…

Screenshot-2848

 Mom and dad moved out in the middle of the night. They found a nice house just up the road. Morgan still lives in our childhood house. He refuses to leave. No worries because the house is completely paid for and our parents still pay the bills. He is so spoiled, I swear. Lindsey was extremely upset after Tarik left. She tried her hardest to reconcile to no avail. Eventually little Ivy will meet her father. Until, that day it is his loss. Mikaela moved back in with us a day or so before my birthday. She and Merle were having marital problems. It was so bad that Little Clary began to stress eat.  I’m no sure what was going on with Merle. Either way it was good to have everyone together again.

Screenshot-2854

Lindsey threw me an amazing birthday party. It was a big surprise. I didn’t want to really celebrate especially after what happened with Tarik and Lindsey. However, she refused to let the day pass without putting something together. She has a knack for it.

Screenshot-2855

Now that I am older, I can see my mother more and more in my face. Dad’s genes are ever-present, but Mom’s genes are stronger. Even Morgan looks like her which is awesome. All of the grandchildren resemble her as well. Lindsey said, ” You know what’s crazy, Wed. Even our descendants look like mom down to her dark hair and skin.” Mom is getting older now and I know that she is not going to live forever.

Screenshot-2858

My nieces Clary and Mandy finally met. They seemed to hit it off instantly. I believe that all of the grandchildren are going to be as close as my sibs and I are. Family is so important to mom especially after her parents died. She decided to raise all of us first generation Reese’s to love one another. We rarely fight unless its over food. Even then it is not that’s serious.

Screenshot-2859 Screenshot-2860

Just seeing us all together is wonderful. Now that we are all older and for the most part successful. We are the first generation of the Reese family from Sunset Valley. The second generation is growing rapidly. I wonder that they will accomplish.

Screenshot-2861

Merle drank a little too much juice and staggered over to the jelly bean plant by the door. I guess the jelly beans look so good that he had to try them. Mom warned us to stay away from this plant but, I guess that slipped his mind.

Screenshot-2862Screenshot-2863

He caught on fire a few minutes later. All that was left was a pile of ash on the ground.

Screenshot-2864

Sadly Clary witnessed the entire thing. She stood crying her eyes out in the living room.

Screenshot-2865

Dad started to cry as well when he saw Clary crying.

Screenshot-2866

Morgan sobbed as well.

Screenshot-2867Screenshot-2868

Death appeared which made everyone cry even more.

Merle did not look upset or scared when he faced death.

He just followed him with a smile on his face.

That was Merle for you.

Screenshot-2871

We stood in silence in complete shock.

Screenshot-2873

There was nothing that dad could say to us so he did not say anything. We all just hugged one another and the party ended.

Screenshot-2875

Ivy learned how to walk that night. Lindsey held her close and cried. Sadly, Merle was not present.

He would have started dancing then walked into the room and tickled little Ivy.

Little Ivy will never know her awesome Uncle Merle.

Screenshot-2876

I decided that I needed a change. So….this is what I came up with. It’s the best way for me to cope.

Screenshot-2877

I miss Merle so much. He made sure to come see me even though we barely saw one another.

Screenshot-2879

I put on my cap and gown choking back tears.

Screenshot-2880

We all rode in my car to city hall for the graduation ceremony.

Screenshot-2882

I’m glad that it was a dreary day and not sunny.

Screenshot-2883

It was easier for all of us to cope.

Screenshot-2884 Screenshot-2885

. Screenshot-2886

We took the time to take a family picture. Two generations together is truly a blessing.

Screenshot-2887 Screenshot-2888

Lindsey made Clary her favorite Vegetarian Dim Sum when we came home.

She wanted to cheer her up.

It worked.

Screenshot-2889

Meanwhile, Mikaela played with Ivy who was having a good time.

They both bonded together now that Mikaela is unemployed.

Screenshot-2890

Clary glanced outside and saw a lady walking towards our door carrying a basket.

Screenshot-2891

She rang the doorbell requesting to speak to Mikaela. Little did we know that Mikaela had gone to the adoption agency. She wanted to extend her family further, but every pregnancy test that she took revealed a negative result. Merle was against adoption even though he was adopted into our family.

Screenshot-2892

Mikaela crouched down to pick up the boy. It was little boy. So, she named him Jase.

Screenshot-2893

Jase fell right into the family so quickly once he came inside. He bonded with Ivy instantly.

Screenshot-2895

Ivy saw Mikaela and abandoned her blocks to go to see. These two are seriously inseparable.

Screenshot-2896

This is a close up of little Jase. He is such a sweetie pie and a charmer.

Screenshot-2898

The best part is that Clary has fallen in love with her baby brother.

Screenshot-2899

Mikaela worried about her reaction to Jase since she had been an only child for so long.

Yet, she hugged him immediately.

Screenshot-2900

I think that they are going to be so close just like Mikaela was with Randi, Mike and Merle.

Anyways,

I am doing a lot better so I will keep you posted.

Later,

Wednesday

FYI

Hello everyone,

Screenshot-1557

 Abby Rose from A Rose Is Still A Rose.

A new blog that I am working on.

As soon as it is up, I will post a link.

A big thank you to all of my readers.

I apologize for not updating sooner.

Here is a bit of an update:

I plan on creating a new blog for the next season of Generation Reese which I created in May of this year. There are three grandchildren who seem to be growing up fast. Once Wednesday heads off to college then I will decide which kid to narrate the story which will lead into the third generation. So far it is a toss up between Clary, Serena and Mandy. I will keep you posted.

Until then, check out…. The Nimmons Legacy which is nearing its second generation now that Olivia has found a boyfriend. I have my fingers crossed.

I want to free up this blog for more insightful posts and TV reviews.

Thank you again for checking out my blog.

Have a happy holiday and a pleasant day…

Violet..

Generation Reese Season 2 Episode 30 One step closer

Screenshot-2190

Wednesday is the only kid in the family who is unsure about her future. By the time, I was her age I knew that I wanted to be a sports star like dad. Mikaela always wanted to work in business.

Her goal was to become some sort of CEO or CFO someday.

Mikey wanted to follow Mikaela.

Merle decided to follow his heart.

He always had a knack in playing guitar and painting.

But, Wednesday seems like she is going to soak of everything possible.

Right now, she is obsessed with astrology, chess and cooking.

Even though, she burned her first batch of muffins I was so proud of her.

Screenshot-2194

Once I came home, I decided to throw a birthday party for mom and dad.

Seeing Anoki was something that made realize that my parents are going to live forever.

No matter how Supernatural they are.

Screenshot-2195

Tarik and Wednesday sat down to play a game of chess.

I’m not sure who won the game.

All that I remember were the giggles echoing through the house.

I’m starting to settle into the idea of having a child.

Maybe, I won’t raise a brood of nine like mom and dad but, having two kids sounds reasonable.

Tarik always says that he is ready whenever I am.

Screenshot-2198

But, I realize that I just started my job so, I will put that idea on the back burner.

At least until I reach level seven of my career.

Screenshot-2199

I think that Wednesday has an imaginary friend.

She mentions someone named Tyreese from time to time.

Years ago, Miranda made her imaginary friend Merle a real boy.

He became like a brother to all of us.

It is a bit strange that he married Mikaela but, its nothing new in the Sim world.

I’ve heard of people having alien babies so..to each their own.

Screenshot-2204

My house was full of Reese’s a few hours later once the party began.

It felt like old times.

Screenshot-2208

Mom was so radiant.

Its crazy to think that she raised nine and gave birth to four.

She’s truly my hero.

Screenshot-2217

Mom married both Anoki Moon and Leighton Sekemoto (dad) but, she never put us in the middle of it.

She just kicked Anoki out and went on.

He cleaned up his act enough to be accepted into our family once more.

Dad was okay with this so long as the family was happy.

Screenshot-2218

Strangely , dad is still stuck in the grunge era.

But, I’m down with that.

Screenshot-2219

I can’t believe that our family is already into their second generation.

That is so crazy just yesterday we were all preparing for Mikaela’s graduation.

Screenshot-2221

Now look at all of us grown up, time surely does fly.

Screenshot-2227

Mikaela sat down to eat cake with Gage Briody Reese, Miranda’s husband.

He is the new father of Serena Briody Reese.

I met her right before I went back to school.

Mom held hope that Miranda would find her place in the world.

She is one of two clones in our family counting Preston Langerak Reese.

He was created by Miranda right after I was born.

Randi felt very neglected and became a loner.

She refused to come out of her shell until Mikaela invited her to live with us.

At that point, Miranda decided to change herself.

Now, she looks amazing with her chestnut brown hair.

Screenshot-2228

Mike and I have always been close.

He made sure to take time with me no matter how busy he was.

Once Mikaela, Miranda and Merle moved out….We were the oldest ones left.

I miss him so much.

Our family is extraordinary with fairies, plant sims, clones, imaginary friends, a natural born witch and one human.

Yet, we never made him feel any less awesome.

Screenshot-2230

As for my half brother Sam, no one really likes him around.

He harbors some serious issues against us particularly against Wednesday.

I pulled my dad to the side to ask about it.

Apparently, Sam refused to move in with him and mom.

He wanted to stay with Grandma Yumi which was his choice.

Yumi claimed that he did not want to have any brothers or sisters so that was his loss.

Yet, I felt the need to invite him to the party for old time sake.

Screenshot-2231

Wednesday was thrilled that everyone came to the party even Sam.

She invited them all back to her birthday party which was coming up pretty soon.

Screenshot-2235

Mom and dad still can’t believe how mature she has become.

Let alone the fact that most of us are grown now with our own families and careers.

Generation 2 has only just begun with Clary and Serena.

All eyes are on Mikey and me to add little one to the family next.

Screenshot-2236

Wed made sure to kiss and hug mom and dad before they left.

Screenshot-2237

Wed missed mom and dad so much but, she wanted to be closer to me which why she left home.

Screenshot-2240

That night like clock work a UFO appeared outside of my room.

It had funny timing because the zombies were roaming around town a la the full moon.

I resisted going outside to investigate but, I did it anyone.

Screenshot-2241

I found myself floating in a pool of light.

Screenshot-2242

I should have known better.

Screenshot-2243

I came back with no memory and an overwhelming fear to hide under the covers.

What did that chick do to me?

Screenshot-2244

This new gnome appeared on my door step.

It is an Easter gnome.

Nothing out of the ordinary considering how I grew up around a half dozen of them.

So I guess it should not have surprised me when I woke up to find one perched in front of the television watching the news.

Screenshot-2245

The sound woke up Tarik who was super pissed.

I giggled under the covers at him yelling in frustration at ” the stupid gnome”.

If he only knew what they are capable of.

Screenshot-2246

I caught a glimpse of Wednesday sleeping so peacefully.

Screenshot-2249

While Tarik was at work and Wed went to school the house was pretty much quiet.

So I went out to visit Merle and Mikaela.

I found Clary at home alone.

It freaked me out to I played with her until the babysitter showed up.

Then the little fairy disappeared.

Screenshot-2256

Later, I went to visit Randi , Gage and Serena.

They were delighted to see me.

Screenshot-2259

I cast a good luck charm on Miranda considering the cards that life dealt her.

Being a clone in this town is not easy.

People called her a demon, soulless and godless.

She would come home crying every day.

Screenshot-2261

Then I played with Serena for a bit.

Screenshot-2266

Wednesday went out to wander around town.

She completed her homework and then continued on her adventure.

Screenshot-2377

He sat down enjoying his concoction while I gagged reading my cook book.

Screenshot-2379

We found ourselves locked in another embrace later that evening.

Screenshot-2380 Screenshot-2381

Wednesday went to work on a masterpiece of some sort.

Screenshot-2382

That next morning Tarik awoke with a smile on his face and made breakfast.

We alternate cooking as we did when I was growing up.

However, Tar needs more experience so I let him take the reigns more than often.

Screenshot-2384 - Copy

He sat together with Wed and they ate breakfast together.

I am so proud of how close they have become.

This family is pretty close knit so that last thing that I want to do is to bring in another Sim who is anti family like Anoki was.

Mom did the right thing booting him out.

Screenshot-2386

I bumped into Mikaela in town.

My concern about Clary being left alone scared me so I approached her about it.

She too was worried but, said that she would talk to Merle.

Screenshot-2388 Screenshot-2389

I took the initiative and went to Merle myself.

I confronted him about the situation.

He was so embarrassed.

Apparently, they were overwhelmed with work as well as losing their home.

Mikaela was bit too proud to admit it.

So I immediately suggested that they move in with me.

It was only fair.

Screenshot-2390

They came over in a taxi and the rest is history.

Screenshot-2393

Mikaela changed her style immediately.

Screenshot-2396 Screenshot-2397

Meanwhile, Clary and I hung out together.

If the future in left in her hands then I am extremely optimistic.

She is a superstar already and is barely four years old.

Screenshot-2399

I took the time to make her hair look like princess Leia’s complete with the buns.

Screenshot-2401

A weight was lifted off of Merle and Mikaela.

They seemed more relaxed once they moved in.

Screenshot-2402

I can see mom in Clary’s face along with Mikaela and Merle.

She is so beautiful.

Screenshot-2404 Screenshot-2406

Mikaela has grown into an awesome mom.

Her bond with little Clary is unbreakable just like mom’s is with all of us.

Screenshot-2407

Wednesday is convinced that there is another world in outer space.

She spends way too much time looking through the telescope.

Could she be more like Randi and Mike??

Screenshot-2412

Mikaela and Wednesday sat down to eat the fruit parfait that she prepared.

Wednesday talked all about her badges that she earned in the scouts.

She is acing all of her class and one step closer to being the eight high school graduate and the sixth college grad in the family.

Our family legacy is filled with wealth , education and family.

Who could ask for anything more.

Mrs. Lindsey Sekemoto Reese Barajas, signing off.

Generation Reese Season 2 Episode 29 The end of higher education

Screenshot-1704

When I arrived at school, it was cold and my phone kept vibrating.

It was a tad bit annoying.

Screenshot-1706

I practiced a little magic to kill time before the party at the student union.

Screenshot-1707

I ran through knee high snow to get to the party.

Screenshot-1708

One of my old roomies is now the mascot.

Screenshot-1773

After, I greeted and met everyone on campus it was back to the dorm.

There I unpacked my clothes.

I decided to rinse of the dye from my hair.

I changed my mind and dyed the shaved side blue.

Screenshot-1774

I slept in thermal PJs and checked the weather.

Snow, snow and more snow coupled with cold.

Screenshot-1776

It was nice showing in the all in one bathroom.

I missed it.

Screenshot-1777

Then I went out to class in my sweater dress , leggings and boots.

Screenshot-1778

I changed into my snow suit and studied on a bench.

All of a sudden it was dark and I high tailed it to the dorm.

Screenshot-1779

I decided to cook something but, I could not figure out what.

My new roomies were a mystery but, I decided to just trust my gut.

Screenshot-1782

As you can see my grilled salmon was a hit.

Screenshot-1785

I have one creepy roommate who seems to shadow me a lot.

Between her dark make up and purple hair, she looks so creepy.

Screenshot-1787

That next morning I went to class.

Someone made a clown snow man which was adorable.

Screenshot-1788

I studied my skeleton and this clown was still standing.

Screenshot-1789

Its started to melting.

Screenshot-1792

After class, I destroyed it.

My roomie was pissed but, it was all good.

Screenshot-1794

Back at the dorm I made a snow angel.

This is my very first snowstorm..

Screenshot-1795

Wed will be the first Reese kid to witness snow besides Clary.

Lucky.

Screenshot-1796

I conjured up Ashley Desorrento again.

She was a friend of my mom’s from back in the day.

A really sweet ghost by the way.

Screenshot-1797

I look hot in a bikini.

Screenshot-1798

After class, I decided to practice a little magic.

Soon I will be unstoppable.

Screenshot-1799

The zombie who appeared outside of my dorm was extra scary.

Screenshot-1800

I completely forgot my coat when I ran off for class.

Of course, there was a traffic jam to get in the building.

Screenshot-1852

Later, I went to the library to study a bit.

This is the same couch that mom, Mikaela and Mikey while they were in school.

They all spent way more time there than I ever did.

I usually studied hard on the go.

Screenshot-1853

I slept a few hours even though the zombies were outside growling.

All of a sudden, I heard a freaky sound outside of my window.

There were these floating colorful lights.

Screenshot-1854

I really didn’t buy all of the mumbo jumbo about UFOs and aliens.

Yet, this spaceship appearing in the place of those lights.

I was definitely freaked out.

One of roommates went out to investigate.

Screenshot-1855

All of a sudden, a beam appeared. It grabbed hold of her.

She was then sucked into the ship then everything disappeared.

Screenshot-1856

Screenshot-1857

Two minutes later they were back.

My roommate ran into the house with no memory of what had happened.

Screenshot-1860

I was studying alone in the dining room when my two roommates appeared.

One of which is a tad bit creepy.

She is a long term student, eight years plus.

Screenshot-1859

For some reason, she started stalking me.

It was weird.

Screenshot-1858

She tries to get my attention but, I ignore her.

Screenshot-1862

I worked on some laundry while I was “boning up on anatomy”.

Screenshot-1863

Then I decided that it was time to go for a run on the treadmill to keep my weight up.

Screenshot-1861

Later, I was invited to Lindsey Jackson’s party.

His fraternity dorm is filthy.

No one likes to clean there I guess.

Sure, their creators were not so happy but, it was worth it.

Screenshot-1867

I was able to calm one of them down.

Screenshot-1868

I’ve never made a snow angel so there is a first time for everything.

toad. The I remind myself that I have bigger fish to fry.

Screenshot-2126

I practiced my first speech about World Peace at the student union building

Too bad nobody showed up for it.

Screenshot-2128

One of the computers broke so, I tried to fix it.

It electrocuted me at first but, I never gave up.

Screenshot-2129

Then EUREKA!!! I fixed it.

Screenshot-2130

I returned home to study up on my skeleton.

Sometimes I believe that this thing is alive.

Screenshot-2131

This zombie appeared outside of the dorm.

He is so dapper in that suit.

Screenshot-2132

I am looking forward to going home.

As nice as college is I miss my family so much.

Screenshot-2133

No one else was home so the bunny gnome definitely turned on the stereo.

Screenshot-2150

I kicked up my heels when my report card arrived.

Some of my roommates grumbled that they would have to repeat the semester.

Mom told me most of the people at the college are kind of stuck.

They ditch classes , hang out in the coffee shop because of their fear of the real world.

I say bring it on.

Screenshot-2160

Upon practicing my magic, I realized just how truly powerful that I have become.

Screenshot-2162

Screenshot-2185

Tarik brought Wed along.

She cheered the loudest as I walked down the aisle.

Sam taunted her the entire time which upset her.

He is a bit jealous that dad spent more time with us than him.

It was not his fault because Sam wanted to stay with Yumi.

He did not like the fact that dad got remarried.

Screenshot-2189

I drove back to the dorm to pack.

I had an awesome day.
