Anderson 2 – Round 20: ‘The Look of Love, Pt. 2′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 4:32 pm

Kate Anderson is divorced, but she’s happy her only child, Hugh, was able to find the love of his life in Kenya.  Now she’s just biding her time until she’s presented with grandbabies!

Lyra gave birth to a litter of four pups, 2 girls and 2 boys, named Toph, Kitara, Aang, and Sakka.  This meant there were six dogs at once in the small house, most of them all trying to crowd into one room at a time.  Hugh was adamant that they’d give the pups to neighbors, but Kenya found it difficult to avoid not tripping over one of the pups.

Her agitation was mostly due to the fact that she found herself in a family way and her moods were swinging faster than boxing league champ.  Hugh was over the moon, as was Kate, who instantly began converting the former downstairs master suite into a lovely little nursery.  They had also recently begun construction of a pool in the backyard, too.

Kate soon was feeling her age and while most people’s hair gradually shifted to gray or white, Kate’s seemed to happen over night.  She didn’t bother with dyeing it back, she was proud of her soon-to-be status of grandma.  Hugh’s happiness was all she needed, it seemed.  She’d spent her life constantly trying to force her happiness, but all she ever needed was to stop and look to her son.  He was the best thing that could have happened to her.

Kenya spent her maternity leave taking care of the many dogs and trying to keep the house clean.  Roman had been very strict about when she would be returning to work and while she had enjoyed her job, she realized that family was more important to her.  She wanted more children after this and she wasn’t sure if she still had room in her life for the demanding job of manager.

She would discuss it with Hugh and see what could be done.

Kenya also struck up an unlikely friendship with her neighbor, Virginia Saunders.  She was also pregnant and home a lot, so the two had a bond there.  Other than that, they were complete opposites.  Kenya enjoyed Virginia’s companionship, though, and tried to ignore the comments she sometimes made in regards to family lifestyles.

Finally, little Lydia Anderson joined the family.  She had her father’s coloring, her grandma Kate’s brown eyes, and dark hair.  She was adorable and her parents couldn’t stop cooing over it.  Kenya was certain she didn’t want to leave little Lydia in the care of a nanny and so she decided she’d discuss her plans of leaving with her boss.

Hugh, meanwhile, set about giving away the now grown pups to neighbors.  He even managed to get some money for them, thanks to Kenya being home to train them properly.  They were an odd lot, but lovable and surely a good addition to the other families.  Who knows, maybe those pups would go on to have some of their own.


Note from Mao: I was completely expecting TWINS!  Hugh has the final family benefit!  Maybe next time, because now Kenya has it, too.  She needs three kids for her LTW.


  1. I FINALLY know where some of the pet names came from! LOL. I hope you get twins next time!
    P.S. Are you feeling 100% better?

    The fiance and I love Avatar! And not completely, but I’m getting better. Still coughing and whatnot.

  2. OH MY GOSH, AVATAR. YES. Okay, enough spazzing. Kate’s hair is like…platinum white. It really stands out against her skin. But it’s nice. Aaah…Hugh and Kenya are such a cute couple. And I bet Lydia will be an adorable kid.

    Yeah, it’s quite SHOCKING white! Kenya and Hugh make me queasy, they are such 3 bolt lovebirds.

  3. Kenya seems to have settled in quite nicely. That’s good. And Hugh turned out ok, but that was more of a given than anything. Family sims seem to be the only ones whose perks of avoiding Uni are really something to consider. All they want are babies anyway. I got the 3-bolt feeling from the entry. Keep the Pepto handy, but it is cute. There aren’t enough faithful couples in Boreal Springs anyway. :P

    Yeah, they definitely act the part of a 3 bolt family couple! But it’s a nice change from all the Romance sims. LOL

  4. Let me get this straight… you actually WANTED twins for once? You must be sicker than I thought! O.o

    Haha, I know! But it would make the process of three kid easier.

  5. Wow, take a break for like 3 days and BAM updates! Glad to see you’re up and running again! Kate’s hair is BLINDING! It’s like seeing the sun after not seeing it for a millennium or so!

    Thanks! Haha yeah, we are back in action because I have been playing AL like mad trying to get to the rounds with Apartments! But it’ll slow down again when I go back to work. Eww.

  6. Babies and Puppies! This update is adorable! Twins? You are insane. Ugh- twins are a nightmare sometimes, though. LOL When I play normally, I skip the entire baby stage with an available mod because the baby stuff is a pain. It’s too bad you can’t cheat in Challenges. Hehee. Did you get rid of ALL the puppies?

    I just wanted twins to shorten the time that Kenya has to be pregnant. She’s an annoying pregnant sim. Always needing sleep! I’m not playing with the rules, so I can cheat all I want, but I don’t. I don’t mind them as babies. Yep, all puppies are gone!

  7. Yay, baby! and puppies! This house is a nice break from all the drama. :D

    Quite! And I love seeing the breeding mixes with pets.

  8. Awww, a baby. I bet Lydia’s gonna be gorgeous, as pretty as both of her parents are.
    Hugh and Kenya seem so sugary sweet togather. For everyone’s sake, I hope they stay that way and the Romance sim in Hugh (Romance’s still his secondary, right?) keeps quiet long enough for him to fulfill his LTW.

    Haha, yeah, it’s still Romance but he rolls up like NO romance wants!
