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..

Believe in yourself

Hey readers, I apologize for not blogging for a bit. Most of my blogs have been my Sims stories. Thank you to everyone who has been following along with the story of The Reese generation. Right now I am currently preparing to return to college and pursue a Master’s degree. I have some of the application finished . All that I need is to write a personal statement and submit my prose. This is something that I have been brainstorming since January. Honestly, I believe that I can do this but, you know that there is always that fear. Can I do this?
Will I get in?

Yet, I spent the past five years wavering back and forth about returning to school. Right now for me, this is a goal that I will achieve. No matter what happens, I am proud of myself that I took a chance. I haven’t told anyone about this because I feel as though I will receive the same feedback that I did in ’08. Those who I discussed this with back then did their best to deter me.

‘You will never get a job with a Masters.”

” Why are you going back to accumulate more debt”.

The fact of the matter is I have to live my own life. Everyone has an opinion but ultimately I make the decision. I believe that I can do this. I do anything that I put my mind to. I believe that if you want something bad enough you have to go out and get it. You have to fight the demons and the negativity. Never give up on your dreams or yourself just because there is no one else who believes in you. My time is coming soon. I am ready for all the blessings that will come.

Take care everyone.

 

Generation 2 episode 32 Revisiting a few Reeses

Screenshot-2636

I am going to be an aunt for the third time now that Kerry is pregnant with the third , second generation Reese.

Something tells me that a little boy is on the way, but in this family you never know.

Either way I am excited.

Screenshot-2641

Mike is a proud papa to be.

He called mom and dad as soon as the news broke.

They were thrilled.

Screenshot-2642

Lindsey was completely oblivious to their love fest as she played with magic nearby.

Screenshot-2643

Lindsey does not seem the least bit worried or stressed about the new baby.

Mom always says that Lin has a one track mind.

If she chooses not to have kids then that is okay.

Me? I hope that she does.

I want to see what her children with Tarik will look like.

Our family has two dominant features dark hair and light eyes.

Screenshot-2644

Screenshot-2645

Mikey and Kerry moved out even after Lindsey set up a nursery in their room for them.

I guess they wanted some privacy not like Lin or anyone butted in on their business.

Yet, I respect their decision.

Growing up with six other siblings will make anyone a bit claustrophobic.

Lindsey respected their decision and cleaned out the room once they left.

Screenshot-2646Screenshot-2648

Later when Lindsey went to the gym she met up with grandma Yumi and Sam.

Yumi is doing well, dating and partying.

Sam on the other hand is still a loner. He never really recovered after dad married my mom.

Still not sure why.

Screenshot-2633

 Lindsey ran to Miranda’s house before she went home.

Serena crawled over to her immediately with a smile on her little face.

Something about that moment changed everything.

She felt like something was missing…in her marriage, in her life.

I tried to get her to elaborate but, she wouldn’t.

Screenshot-2637

She went outside to get some air and all this portal appeared.

Screenshot-2638

Not one to pass up an opportunity, Lin went through it.

She found herself in a little place called Oasis Landing.

At first sight it was fabulous like Elysium.

Science thought of everything possible to make life smoother.

Screenshot-2639

She came upon one of a woman named Angela who I assume is a great, great , great…etc grandchild of Lindsey.

Ang was so happy to see Lindsey that she did not want to let her go.

Screenshot-2640

Angela is the mother of a brood like mom’s.

She has five children which I assumed is a legacy in the Reese family.

Thanks mom!!!

Well, those children are Zachary, Alfred, Ricky , Waylon and Cathleen.

Screenshot-2640 Screenshot-2641 Screenshot-2642

They all were excited to see Lindsey as well.

The family resemblance is uncanny.

I can totally see Tarik in all of them.

Our family is genetically predisposed to have dark hair.

I guess is traveled all through the generations regardless of who married whom.

Yet, Alfred was born with blond hair so I guess there are a few recessive genes swimming around.

Then again, Sam does have brown hair so…

Screenshot-2649

Lindsey created something called a plumbot.

Its a bit of a work in progress.

Needless to say she named it Arthur and went to work on it.

Screenshot-2654

So when it was time to come home, guess who tagged along.

Screenshot-2655

Lindsey was home for less than hour before she pounced on Tarik.

Screenshot-2656

Me, I was too busy doing my hair to pay attention to all the commotion going on.

Screenshot-2676

We all sat together at breakfast.

Tarik was a good mood.

I wonder why? LOL

Screenshot-2693

I went over to Mike’s house to meet my little niece Mandy.

She is so adorable and extremely bright.

Screenshot-2694

Mikey was so glad to see me when I came over.

I think that out of all of us. He is going to follow suit and have a brood like mom.

Lind said that he was the most proactive in the family with all the younger kids.

He spent a lot of time with us , playing and getting us together.

Screenshot-2695

When I came home everything was so quiet in the house.

Tarik and Lin were not speaking to one another.

It was weird.

Screenshot-2696

Tarik left for work and all of a sudden there was Lindsey standing downstairs rubbing her belly in tears.

Screenshot-2698

Maybe this is what they call a midlife crisis.

Accept Tarik is in his early thirties so, I’m not sure what is going on.

Nor can I understand the villainous new look that he adopted.

Screenshot-2699

Arthur and his little sprite were having fun upstairs.

I really want a sprite now.

Screenshot-2700

Classes were cancelled due to the psychotic snowstorm so I went out and started snowboarding.

I am a badass at it.

Screenshot-2702

Lindsey decided that we all should take a family photo. So all of sudden it was mom, dad, me, Morgan is Tarik posing like models in this tiny booth.

Lindsey begged mom and dad to move in with her.

They agreed.

Screenshot-2705 Screenshot-2706

As soon as they came over, they both decided it was time for a change.

So poof!!!!

Here is the aftermath.

Screenshot-2708

The next morning Tarik and Lindsey laid in bed thinking about their marriage.

Lindsey suggested that they both dream about family.

Once it was all over there was tension in the air.

Screenshot-2709

Lindsey decided that this was the moment to reveal the truth.

Screenshot-2710

” Sweetie , I’m pregnant,” she replied.

His reaction was not she was expecting.

” What,” Tarik snapped, ” why the hell would you. You knew that I did not want kids.”

Screenshot-2711

” Are you serious,’ she says, ” you were the one who said lets have kids. I want kids.”

” Don’t put this on me”, he spat back.

Screenshot-2714

” GET OUT”, Lindsey cried.

Just like that Tarik was gone.

They filed for divorce a little after that.

Screenshot-2720

Dad made waffles for breakfast to calm the dark mood in the air.

Its awesome sitting down for dinner with mom and dad.

We haven’t done this since I was a little kid.

Screenshot-2722

That night I had to get ready for prom.

Everything had to be perfect down to my make up.

Screenshot-2723

Meanwhile, Lindsey and mom discussed pregnancy.

Mom was pregnant four times.

Each pregnancy was a different in its own way.

Her pregnancy with me was the easiest.

Screenshot-2725 Screenshot-2726

Here I am in my prom dress.

Its a couture number that Lindsey brought back from Oasis landing complete with futuristic shoes.

Screenshot-2727

Lindsey’s baby started kicking like a rockette.

Mom swears that the baby is a girl.

Screenshot-2729

Lindsey sat down to a read a baby book when her water broke.

Screenshot-2730

She waddled to the car and drove to the hospital.

Screenshot-2731

Daryl was outside when Lin arrived.

He started freaking out that she was in pain.

Screenshot-2733

Tarik came running into the hospital. He stayed by Lindsey side until she delivered a healthy baby girl who she named Ivy.

Ivy is the fourth grandchild born into the 2nd generation of Reese girls.

She joins Clary, Serena and Mandy.

I wonder what I’ll have when I have a kid.

What will Sam or Morgan have?

Only time will tell.

Screenshot-2734

Tarik rode home in the taxi with Lindsey.

I guess he assumed that she would invite him in but, no.

He stood outside in the snow for almost an hour before leaving.

Screenshot-2736

Here is sweet Ivy sleeping in her new crib.

Screenshot-2737

Mom was the first face that Ivy saw in the morning.

Screenshot-2739

She took her out for a stroll.

Ivy was having a ball.

Well, I’ll keep you updated guys…

Later,

Peace Out,

Wednesday Reese.

Lin went into labor a few minutes after this.

 

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.

New York Comic Con ’13 and me.

059

This year marked the third New York Comic Con that I have attended.

My game plan this year was to attend a majority of the panels that I selected on my Show planner app.

I believe that I attended somewhere between 75- 80 percent of the panels which included

The 25th Anniversary of Childs Play which helped me finally conquer my fear of the doll,

Comic Book Men, Venture Brothers,

The Walking Dead,

Reign, Robot Chicken, Beauty and the beast,

Defiance,

The Following,

Davinci’s demons

The Outlander,

Person of Interest, Haven, Teen Wolf

Black Sails

and last but, not least…

270

Sleepy Hollow.

I stayed late on Thursday for a special screening of Almost Human, The Tomorrow People and the 100.

Day 1

Day 1

This year for my birthday, I received an Ultimate VIP pass which made my experience less stressful. I had a 3 day pass my first year and a four day on my second so this was the icing on my cake.

It helped my get into the most popular panels.

There were many people who seemed to have it out for the VIPs.

I never felt that way when I was attending in the previous years when I had a regular badge.

A few moments upset me, particularly when I was yelled at by an irate security guard for wanting to use the rest room.

Plus, The Walking Dead panel was really good but, I felt uneasy with the crowd this year.

One crew member was hit in the fact as the crowd rushed up to the stage at the end.

Despite that I had a good time, next year I hope to attend regardless of what badge I get.

I started brainstorming already what will be my game plan as I did last year.

My goal is to make it to SDCC 2015.

Wish me luck.

Below are a few more pics from the con.

Generation Reese season 2 episode 28 Moving on

Screenshot-1531

Hey guys, Lindsey Pierce here,

I went out in the quad to do some reading.

The dorm was a bit too lively for me.

Screenshot-1532

I am trying my best to learn a few more recipes.

Anything to get my mind off Tarik.

Our relationship is going pretty well but, I kinda botched up our engagement.

Now we have to wait to get married.

Which completely sucks.

Screenshot-1533

Gardening is hard when your plant Sim roomie likes to play in the sprinklers.

Screenshot-1534

I went to class in a cute pair a shorts for the last warm day in fall.

This chick in my class wore a micro mini that revealed a bit too much.

I found out the wrong way.

Screenshot-1535

I barely made it to class because of my roomies who piled into my backseat.

During my class , they complained about being hungry and tired.

I turned them out as I studied my skeleton.

For a moment it moved by itself and scared the crap out of me.

Spooky is not the word.

Screenshot-1540

It was hard to look outside with the frost on the windows.

Time to pack away the shorts and pull on my hoodies.

I made an awesome mushroom omelet for breakfast which my roomies destroyed.

Screenshot-1541

Meanwhile, the maid was outside raking leaves.

I tried and failed.

We are the only dorm that has a maid.

Everyone else just fends for themselves.

Me. I was tired of cleaning up behind a house full of women so I hired some help.

Screenshot-1542

Getting used to the cooler weather is a bit of bummer.

But, then again Christmas is just around the corner.

Screenshot-1543

I went out for a cheese Danish to cure my PMS blues.

Man that was so good.

Screenshot-1544

I read a cook book when I came home.

Spaghetti and Meat sauce is the recipe that I learned.

Anything is better than tofu dogs and goopy carbonara.

Screenshot-1546

I decided to try a haunting spell out on the mascot after my class.

She was so scared that she nearly peed on herself.

That was too funny.

As I left some dude decided to air out his business literally and streak around the Student Union building.

Screenshot-1579

I went home and tried a fire blast spell.

Once again I set the grass on fire.

Screenshot-1580

The semester was over and I completely aced all of my classes.

Screenshot-1581

I started to wonder what I could do to celebrate.

Screenshot-1582

Then I started star-gazing for a bit.

Screenshot-1573

I cast a good luck spell on this lady in the green dress.

Screenshot-1574

She was so very grateful to me.

Screenshot-1575

Then a ghost appeared.

Screenshot-1576

No one noticed him….

two ghosts are way scarier than one.

Screenshot-1577

Mikaela painted this pic while she was in college.

Screenshot-1590

I received my finale grades for the semester right when I was doing the laundry.

Straight A’s again.

I will be the fifth college grad in my family and the fourth summa cum laude.

Screenshot-1592

I went out to the beach to fish.

I caught more than my share of fish which was crazy.

Screenshot-1596

I made a big mistake casting a spell on this random chick .

She then tried to kiss me which was awkward.

Screenshot-1598

I made lunch before I left.

( This glitch was hilarious).

It was time for me to go home so I left that night.

Screenshot-1583

When I came home , Merle was fussing on his cellphone.

Clary was busy playing with her knees.

Screenshot-1584

Wednesday fed Clary some cereal.

They have bonded together as fae which is pretty awesome.

Screenshot-1585

I put Clary into bed after she ate dinner.

Screenshot-1586

Wednesday went outside and did a science experiment.

Screenshot-1587

I was reading a recipe book when Merle walked in.

He embraced Mikaela.

I think it is so sweet how deeply in love with her, he is .

I hope to have that love someday.

Screenshot-1589

I cooked pancakes in the morning and everyone sat down to eat.

Screenshot-1599

Even though they did not say it, Merle and Miranda needed their space.

So I packed up my things and left.

Wednesday came along as well.

Screenshot-1601

This is my new home.

Screenshot-1602

I made spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner once we settled in.

Screenshot-1610

When I went to say good night to Wed she was already asleep.

Screenshot-1611

Loneliness got the best of me and I started missing Tarik.

Our relationship was on the rocks but, I was willing to set that aside.

One phone call was all that it took to convince him to come over.

Screenshot-1612

He greeted Wednesday discussing etiquette and cleanliness.

She was actually interested which is surprising.

Screenshot-1613

She left to bike ride over to the fair.

Screenshot-1628

She decided to roller skate when this creepy chick popped out of nowhere.

Screenshot-1625

Tarik ditched his ‘fro for dreads.

Personally, I really liked running my fingers through his hair.

Screenshot-1687

Then came the razor.

Screenshot-1689

I decided to go to Mike’s house to congratulate him with the news.

However, when I got there no one would open the door.

Screenshot-1691

So I decided to go visit Miranda.

She was at work but, Gabe was home.

He introduced me to my niece Serena which is a kick ass name choice.

It took a while for her to warm up to me but, she did.

Screenshot-1693

Gabe was more concerned with playing video games.

Plus, he left her on the floor which was weird.

In fact there is nothing baby friendly in the entire house.

Screenshot-1694

Screenshot-1699

I came home and sat in the kitchen reading a cookbook.

Screenshot-1701

I called my parents to tell them the good news about my marriage and they new house.

They are extremely thrilled.

Screenshot-1702

I decided that night to return to college.

Tarik promised me that he would take good care of Wed.

Its time for me to finish my education and make my family proud.

Peace.

Generation Reese 2 Episode 25 Lindsey’s graduation

Screenshot-1188

It was Clary’s birthday.

Here we are gathered around the cake.

When Mikaela revealed that she was pregnant, I wondered what the baby would be.

Mom told us that the only sure way to have a fairy baby is to marry another fae.

That explains why Wednesday was born fae.

She never mentioned anything about what kind of baby results from the joining of a Fae and an imaginary friend.

So as I blew the out the candles, I was anxious to see the result.

Screenshot-1191

Little Clary , not only looks like Mikaela but, she has her wings.

Screenshot-1192 Screenshot-1193

I can see Merle in her as well.

Babies are funny that way, I guess.

She has Mikaela’s green eyes as well.

Screenshot-1197

That night we threw a party to celebrate Lindsey’s birthday.

Gage stayed upstairs to bond with Clary.

Screenshot-1211

He read her a story.

It was something about either a frog or a magical dog.

Either way , she was interested.

Screenshot-1194

Our party was exclusively for family but, of course there were a number of party crashers.

Screenshot-1195

Sam brought along Wednesday who was smitten with the colorful balloons.

Screenshot-1199

The party was a great success.

Screenshot-1201 Screenshot-1202 Screenshot-1205 Screenshot-1206

It was time for Lindsey to blow out her candles.

Most of the party left.

There was just Merle, Mom, me,  Sam, Kerry and Darryl.

She took a few minutes to make a wish.

I remember when mom and Leighton brought her home.

Everyone met her with open arms.

Me, I was used to being the youngest girl.

Then here comes this little monster.

I am not sure who she looks more like mom or Leighton.

Screenshot-1207

I take that back, she looks like a hodgepodge of both.

Screenshot-1209Screenshot-1213

She sat down to enjoy her cake.

Screenshot-1208

Kerry was so happy to invited.

Her family is definitely not as big as ours.

Screenshot-1210

Merle and I joined her.

I never get tired of this cake.

It’s so good.

Screenshot-1212

Mom sat down with us.

She is counting down the days until my wedding.

Screenshot-1215

Lindsey changed her hairstyle which looks so cute on her.

We piled into Lindsey’s Prius and headed over to city hall.

Just yesterday Lin was this little ball of magic now she is a full grown witch.

Everyone is so proud of her.

Now she will start her Freshman year at Sims U.

I am so excited for her.

She will be the fourth Reese to attend college.
