Canterbury Cove - a BaCC: Week Six - Lieman  
Photobucket
I know it's only been three days since my last update, but I actually got to play for once! =D So here you go, week six for the Lieman family.

It's been awhile, but I'm sure you remember me, Rachel Lieman. I'm still living with my loving husband, Edward, our son, Cameron, and our triplets, Cayla, Devon, and Evan.

Photobucket
As you may or may not remember, I am a lover of knowledge, and so, when I met Patricia, I suddenly became extremely curious about what being a witch was like. I started inviting her over and hanging out with her every chance that I could get.

And after a little pleading, begging, and possibly the consumption of the freshest veggies in town, Patricia agreed to let me join the ranks of the good witches. I was ecstatic! It was such a new and interesting experience for me.

And let me tell you, being a witch is better than it is made out to be. I love all the new things that I am getting to learn and it has been helping me quite a bit.

It has especially been helping me at my business, Fresh Fruits and Veggies.

Because of my newfound success, I hired a nice young boy named Alex to help me out at the store. Unfortunately, he quit after complaining that I wasn't paying him enough. I guess I forgot to give him a raise after I noticed his skill with the cash register improving.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Perhaps it was for the better as my new employee, Sheridan, has been doing much better. It probably helps that I constantly cast spells on him to improve my mood.

Photobucket

Photobucket
I had been trying to make all of my reagents myself, but between taking care of my business and taking care of my family, and trying to find time for myself, I found it quite hard to do. So I called up my friend Patricia and bought some from her.

Business at Douglas Firniture has also been flourishing.

Photobucket
I think all of the business he has been doing has changed the way he thinks about things. He is still really into knowledge, but I know that he really loves working at Douglas Firniture.

Photobucket

Photobucket
So Edward hired Lexi to help him out. She's quite nice and even doesn't mind wearing the silly uniform.

Photobucket
Unfortunately, it received a bad review. I guess Edward said he didn't notice the reporter when she was there and therefore didn't get around to helping her. Hopefully it doesn't have a negative effect on his business.

The triplets had a birthday and are now teens. That means there are four teens under one roof! I guess I kind of know how the Carnahans felt now. It's definitely one mood swing after another sometimes, but I know they will grow out of it.

Cameron has started to show more interest in girls. He met this nice girl named Susan and asked her on a date. He said that she unfortunately had to leave right after they arrived though.

Photobucket

Photobucket
He still focuses a lot on school and helping out around the house though, which I really appreciate. He has always been so helpful.

Cayla

Devon

And I think his attitude has rubbed off on the other kids a little bit as well.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Edward has still been spending a lot of time working with his robot station. He has become very skilled and can make all sorts of things now.

Photobucket

Edward has aged as well, however, he didn't really want to have a party. I still think he looks as handsome as ever.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Right before Edward's birthday I went outside to see that our trash can had been knocked over and that we had roaches. I was rather annoyed.

Photobucket

Photobucket
However, Edward fell in love with the culprit, Echo, a beautiful black female wolf. Unfortunately, she ran off before Edward could do anything to make her stay.

Photobucket
So when she showed up again a few days later, I decided that as a birthday present, that Edward could be allowed to keep her. I know he loves her very much and perhaps in the future we will find her a male partner and maybe have some puppies, but we will have to say.

Photobucket
I just hope that I don't get stuck with all the responsibility of taking care of her... though I am sure that I will. Oh well, that's just part of being a mother I guess. And I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Photobucket

Photobucket
And according to Edward, we may soon be welcoming another member to our family, although I'm not quite sure what he means by that. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

Witches! Wolves! And a robot station! The plot thickens. ^_^

Of course! haha :)
I'm hoping to get at least one of every creature in this 'hood.

Thank you! :) I like how they all look pretty different.

Great chapter, as usual! :) Servos, witches and wolves, oh my!
olivethegreatolivethegreat on February 21st, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah haha. Too bad she wasn't the leader of the pack. So no werewolves yet.
flatpack on February 21st, 2011 08:16 am (UTC)
Oooo, first the triplets growing up gorgeous ad now Edward hiding a little something from Rachel. ;)

Can't wait for the next!
olivethegreatolivethegreat on February 21st, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :)
I'm sure she'll like the surprise though.

Rachel is really a sweet old lady, thinking all the young ones are nice girls and boys :)
olivethegreatolivethegreat on February 22nd, 2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
She is very sweet. :)

Great update! I just love Rachel; she is soooo cute. She looks very classy on that broomstick!
olivethegreatolivethegreat on February 23rd, 2011 03:03 am (UTC)
I think she does too. I knew she would make a good witch. I've enjoyed playing her as one so far. It's actually the farthest I have ever gotten with one. I am trying to get her to be infallibly good and hopefully get her skill high enough so that she can make a throne.

Looks like someone is gonna explore a lot of the supernatural creatures in the future ;) And yeah for the triplets being teens with doable ltw's ;)
olivethegreatolivethegreat on February 23rd, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping to get at least one of each in this neighborhood. :) I've always like the supernatural creatures.

Cayla grew up to be a knockout, but my favorite is Devon. I suppose it's because he's the odd one of the set. Popularity Sims are always fun, anyway. They seem a bit more diverse and flexible.

Another elder brings another great Elder makeover! It takes talent to keep them looking stylish and mature.
olivethegreatolivethegreat on April 1st, 2011 05:38 pm (UTC)
I think Devon is the best mix of his parents. I'm sure he will be a lot of fun as an adult.

Thank you! I really try to keep them looking nice without looking like they are trying to look younger than they really are.
