So long Claudio, Hello trouble

So, I apologize for the huge lapse in my updates! My life has been one big crazy blur for the last three months, and I have let the Spaghettis take the back burner. But I've had this update ready to go since back in July...so here it is!

If you don't remember who the Spaghetti's are, you can check out the Family Tree for a refresher. The current household looks like this:

Caterina, G3 heir, elder
Claudio, G3 spare, elder
Delanna, G4 heir, young adult
Whitney, G4 spouse, young adult
Daniela, G4 spare, young adult
Enrico, G5 spare, child
Emilio, G5 spare, child
Elysa, G5 heir, toddler

A couple of updates ago, Daniela (the evil G4 spare), was trying so very hard to recruit her niece and nephews to her evil empire. It seems to have worked on at least one of the kids. Enrico is just as evil as his Aunt Daniela. Here he is asking his father for a "weapon of mass destruction" for his birthday. His evil Aunt Daniela smiles and applauds herself on a job well done.

Elysa left behind her pigtail & diaper days and became a very cute child. I think she's the cutest Spaghetti kid yet! Besides Claudio, that is. He's always been a very handsome fella. I can't remember in what order Elysa got her traits, and I'm well past her childhood days in gameplay at this point. But she's a loner, artistic, hot headed, and brave. She loves Latin music, sushi, and the color lilac. She's a fun loving kid and she loves to dance and paint!

See? I told you she loves to paint. She reminds everyone of her great-grandma Bianca who was always an avid painter.

Oh no, Claudio!! You know what these gold glowy-sparkle thingies mean.

So, yes. Claudio Spaghetti, my cutest and favorite of all the Spaghetti's, has passed away. He lived a long life and died peacefully, surrounded by his entire family, at the ripe old age of 91. Elysa was terrified of the Grim Reaper, but she was so tired that it didn't really phase her. Delanna, on the other hand, loved ol' Grimmy and made a bee-line over to him in order to shake his hand and become friends. Not sure if this was a glitch, but Grim stayed on the lot for a pretty long while after taking Claudio, and Delanna became friends with him. It shows him in her relationships panel as her friend, but the picture is blank. Weird...

The twins didn't take Claudio's death very well at all. They both cried for days. Whitney, on the other hand, seemed impassive to say the least. Caterina was also beside herself with grief, having just lost her husband and now her brother too. She's the last one of generation 3 still living.

Claudio was laid to rest in the newly renovated family cemetery. He's the one in the front row with the freshly dug dirt patch. Lol, what can I say...I like a little bit of realism in my game!

Just a random picture to show Elysa's hot-headedness in action! She really abuses her doll-house people. But we'll pretend this is the ramifications that Claudio's death has had on Elysa. She's usually very sweet.

If Elysa acted out by killing off her dollhouse people, Delanna and Daniela showed their grief by getting tattoos! I tried sending them one night at 8pm, but noone was at the tattoo parlor, so I guess they're not open 24/7. Delanna got angel wings on her back, and Daniela got a flaming skull on her arm. I also sent them to the spa after getting tattoos so they would get that spa moodlet. They were so sad after Claudio's death, that I figured they needed a little pick-me-up.

Then the washer broke down. Poor Caterina had to get down there on her old arthritic knees and repair the darn thing. And even Evil Daniela had to come in and help since the washer was flooding the whole house! Okay, not the whole house, but it was a giant watery mess.

Time for the twins to have a birthday!

They're so cute with their birthday cakes! Emilio has to seriously think about what he wants to wish for, while Enrico is already having a sugar rush from all that cake he knows he's about to eat.

And here they are as teens. Obviously, Enrico is the evil looking one that's giving his brother the death stare. Emilio is the clean-cut and very dashing one with the lighter hair. He really reminds me of Whitney...their facial features look so very much alike.

Emilio hates the outdoors, is a genius, hot-headed, and flirty. He's going to be a ladies man for sure, with those good looks he got from his dad. He has decided that he wants to become a Master of the Arts. He loves kids music, hamburgers, and the color sea foam.

Enrico is an evil couch potato, who is also hot-headed and a tad bit eccentric. He wants to be Super Popular, which is a little silly for an evil sim. But as you'll see, he might be evil but he's definitely a fun-loving guy anyway.

Enrico hates all things cute. He loves his sister, but he really can't stand it when she talks about girly things. Whitney isn't much better, he's a sports guy all the way. But he at least puts up with the girly things that his daughter likes. But it drives Enrico crazy!

Even though Enrico is evil like his Aunt Daniela, he's evil in a more fun-loving sort of way. He is a true practical jokester, and takes every chance he can get to scare and surprise his family...much to their annoyance.

Here's Elysa and Whitney playing tag. It's the first time I've seen that in my game, so I thought it was cute. Especially when Whitney had to stop and take a breather because he's getting old, and Elysa was getting impatient with her old fart of a dad.

Daniela might have been successful in recruiting Enrico to her evil ways, but she was most unsuccessful with Emilio. In fact, Emilio absolutely despises his Aunt Daniela. He yells at her for everything, especially for leaving dirty dishes lying around. These two are always fighting, and I've had to separate them on numerous occasions.

That's it for this update. Sorry it took so long to get it posted. I hope to get a few more posted this week and then we should be caught up to where I am in game. Although I'm having a problem in game...Elysa has completely disappeared, although she's still selectable...she's just invisible in the house. Since she's the heiress, I've got to figure out a way to fix that or the challenge can't go on! Well, the matriarchy can't anyway. But I've got a few more posts until I have to worry about that. Hope you enjoyed it and hope you all are doing well! I've got to get caught up on all the journals I follow!

First and foremost, happy belated birthday :)

I'm surprised it wasn't Daniela making a beeline to befriend Grimmy, but I love that the girls got tattoos and your selections were very appropriate. I certainly hope Elysa turns reappears soon!

I don't think i have ever commented here before as I only recently found this blog.
Hope you get Elysa to show up, it is nothing worse than sim which has dissapeared.
Oh my how diffrent thouse twins are, and Enrico truly looks super evil, but same time really hot...good luck with his lifetime aspiration though, as might be bit of a challenge :)
