Last Visit: Week 13
Editor's note: For some reason, the game will not manufacture the neighborhood moniker correctly for this lot. The picture is off center and does not include everyone. So I improvised. :) )
(Soft southern accent) Why hello everyone. Ah'm Valentine, and ah fahnd it to be mah great pleasure to tell the story of the fifth generation of Propserity Falls. After all *giggle* Ah am the momma of it. The fifth generation, Ah mean. Ah want to start this great story with the news of a passing. Yes, it is sad. It is someone we all love to hate, errr...Ah mean love.... *ahem* This is to announce to you all the passing of Marsha Bruenig-Capehart. Why, it got quite a write up in the Prosperity Falls Gazette. Ah'll read it to ya.
*quickly flips out the paper, gives it a shake*.
"Marsha Bruenig-Capehart passed quietly Tuesday afternoon, whilst mourning the grave of her wife and partner in life, Janelle Capehart." Why, yes...that is right. Mah daddy Manuel was adopted by mah grandmas Janelle and Marsha. So in a way, Marsha was daddy's momma. So was Janelle. *whew* Confusin', isn't it? *shakes head* Lemme continue readin' the article.
"Marsha joins Janelle in the sweet-after simlife. She outlived Janelle by 10 Sim days, even though she and Janelle had celebrated all their birthdays at the same time." Now honey, Ah don't understand thet. "Marsha was a dedicated mother to Manuel Capehart whom she adopted. She was also a wonderful grandmother to Valentine, (that's me, hehe), Vonfirmath and Veronica Capehart.
"Marsha spent her last days doing yard work in the new home her son had just purchased and moved his family into. She had had a wonderful time at the wedding of her granddaughter Valentine to Tanu Capehart, a very distant relative." Now honey, Ah know what you are thinking. Kissin' cousins and all thet. Why Tanu and I do not share any of the same blood at all! No siree! This newspaper lies! What a rag! But.... *shrugs shoulders* it is all we have for news.
"Marsha partied into Sim Oblivion with Grim and the Zombie Hula Girls. Her death benefited 10 people including her son Manuel, her daughter in law Vampiress Lillith Strickland-Capehart, and her granddaughter Valentine Capehart. There were no graveside services as there was no room in the yard for a bunch of Sims to stand around an mourn." Oh Mah! *presses hand to chest* Ah woulda hated it if mah flower beds had gotten trampled. Yes, Ah would. Ah am so glad we kept this quiet.
At any rate, Marsha is dead. Good bye Marsha, and good riddance...errr....Ah mean...Godspeed. You will (not) be missed!
Honey, Ah saved this here article. It is about me and Tanu's weddin'. An' of all people! Looky, it was written by Joan Rivers....the last Ah heard of her, she was covern' weddins at the Gentlemen's Club. Ah am soooo honored! Here, Ah'll read this 'un to you too!
Joan Rivers: Oy Vey! Dear readers, it is the wedding of the century in Prosperity Falls. I mean darlings, this family is the one to watch! Alright. We will start with the Bride and the Groom. The Bride is Valentine Capehart and the Groom Tanu Capehart, pictured below. Yes, yes darlings, they are so in love. Taking a slow dance at Four Winds Shopping whilst shopping for a wedding trouseau.
No, no, dears; we won't go there! Yes, yes I know they have the same last name and do share some of the same distant relatives. I checked into this; yes I did. Due to the fact that the Bride's father Manuel was adopted into the Capehart family...yadda, yadda, yadda...and really has NO Capehart blood in his veins...yadda, yadda.....his daughter Valentine could marry Tanu Capehart who is a true-blue Capehart, complete with snow leopard blood. Alrighty then. With those legalities out of the way, let's proceed with all the good stuff.
The wedding was held at the prestigious Visionay Villa, recently purchased by Manuel Capehart for his family. The villa is a product of the Maxis Manufacturing Company FFS, and overlooks a gorgeous lake with with a huge overhanging deck to the water. There you see? In the picture, darlings, those windows overlook the lake. Yes indeedy.
The wedding was held at night time to accomodate the Bride's mother, who is a vampire. I mean really.....why doesn't she do something about that? There is such a thing called Vamprocillin you know. At any rate. Here is the guest list:
The Bride's father
The Bride's mother
The Groom's mother
The Groom's brother
The Bride's sister
The Groom's uncle
The Groom's Aunt
The Bride's Great Aunt
The Bride's Grandmother
The Bride's Grandfather
Friend of Bride and Groom
Quavi's Wife, and Bride's Aunt
Darlings the wedding party was a huge success, need I say more. The Capehart/Strickland clans have seen enough weddings to really know how to get it on! There was laughing, music, dancing and lots of merrymaking.
Dear readers, as soon as Tanu slipped that ring on Valentine's finger, aspiration points were NOT in short supply as all the family sims on both sides of the families realized a want for a relative to get married. My goodness! There were floating green numbers everywhere! Darlings, I just love weddings. I dab my eyes thinking about it.
Needless to say, Tanu and Valentine are the perfect couple to be the parents of Generation Five in Prosperity Falls. Yes, this little town is growing folks, and is the community to WATCH. This is Joan Rivers...saying Goodbye...Goodluck....see you next time!"
Valentine: Oh what a beautiful article. Yes, the wedding was that, and more. Ah have cut that article out and put it right here in my scrapbook. Yes, Ah am scrappin' so there will be a history, if you will, for mah daughter Violet to turn to when she wishes to read all about her relatives from time past. Well. Let me tell you about the events that lead up to Violet's birth.
Now, it has always been mah dream to own mah own greenhouse. Goodness, Ah kin just dig my fingertips down into the rich soil and grow plants. Ah also love to arrange flowers. For a wedding present, daddy bought Tanu and Ah our very own flower shop, and momma gave us a huge starting inventory of flowers to start off with.
'Course, Ah had just as about as many flowers as thet Ah had arranged to add, so we had plenty to start with. As Tanu and Ah worked to get the shop ready to open, we found out we was expectin'. Thet is, Ah was in the family way. 'Course, mah second dream in lahf is to graduate three children out of Sim State University, so Ah was as pleased as a pickle in brine thet we had a little one on the way.
Even though Ah had a belly out to there, Ah still went to the store everyday to make sure things was raght on schedule. Ah got tired really easy, and it was tahms lahk thet, thet Tanu would come and take over.
Eventually, he said, "Honey, Valentine, you need to hire somebody to help you in the store." Well, Ah remembered my friend Samantha Strickland Ah met at the weddin' of Justice and Karin Strickland. Why, mah feet would just be so swollen after a day of standin' makin' flower arrangements and waitin' on customers. So Ah called her up and she came raght over and started workin' as if she had done it all her robotical life. Mah goodness, she is ever so good at arrangin' flowers!
Welcome Generation Five!
It wasn't long before our sweet little baby girl was born, Violet Capehart. Oh what a pretty baby she was, and it was only fittin' thet she was born in the flower beds in the rich soil. Well, Ah really didn't plan it out thet way, but Ah reckon fate has a way with things.
Why, daddy came running outside in his underware to see his first grandbaby, but Ah reckon that is no different then me a-givin' birth right then and there in the front yard. Thet there is one of the beautiful things about living in Prosperity Falls. Nobody thinks badly of ya no matter what you do! Tanu was all beside himself with happiness and started talkin' about gettin' started on number two baby! Ah was all fer thet, but there were some things we had to git straightened out first.
LTW: To Own 5 Top Rated Businesses
Well, mah baby sister Veronica grew up to be a teen-ager and started talkin' about all the things she was gonna do with her lahf. She professed she was gonna make alot of friends in lahf, then she wants to be a business owner lahk me. More power to her, Ah say. She got busy studying for State. Before I knew it she was movin' out to University, but not before our little Violet had her first birthday.
Isn't she precious? And she so looks lahk Daddy! There is a strong family resemblence. She is a Capehart alright, all the way around!
It was shortly after thet Veronica left for University. Ah am shore gonna miss thet girl. She did get alot of studying done! (editor's note: Veronica actually maxed all skills, but being a Pop Sim, no points were awarded. I am wondering why this Pop Sim rolled 5 Top Level Businesses for an LTW.)
Momma built and activated a new Servo for the flower shop, she named him Capable. 'Cuz he is capable of heppin' us in the shop. He already can make snapdragon arrangements, which is mah biggest seller. So reallly, Ah will have two Servos workin' in the shop. And maybe Veronica too, if she kin work it in between classes. This will be the most successful flower shop in Prosperity Falls!
Tanu and Ah are so happy. We have it made! A wonderful home and family, a thriving business, and another little one on the way. Yes, Tanu and Ah are gonna be parents again. Until next tahm!
