Happy holidays, Roulette readers! As a quick reminder, who is in our household right now:
Frost – mom, young adult, white hair/eyes
Abyss – dad, young adult, black hair/eyes
Dijon – son, child, gold hair/black eyes
Topaz – daughter, child, gold hair/black eyes
Boyd – son, toddler, random blond hair/gold eyes
Diesel – son, infant, black hair
Mom and dad are both dreaming of throwing a birthday party for Dijon. Not gonna happen, guys. I hate parties.
Boyd is adorable.
Booped your nose!!
Ugh, Dijon’s growing up in the dark. At least Topaz is with him to cheer him on.
I drag him inside so you can see him better.
First day of winter fest means a new family picture!
Officially on the rock track now. Woot!
Diesel’s birthday, yay!
Nope, I take that back. Instead it’s our first fire. Lame. Fear not, the guys got it put out, and I rebought the charred counter and replaced the cake (because apparently you can’t age if your candle blowing causes a calamity.)
Diesel’s second attempt was smooth, and he appears to get 100% Abyss’ coloring.
One trip to the potty, then a major walking session.. got the walking skill done!
Dijon is outside living his best snow day life.
And bam, with potty training done, it’s two toddler skills out the way.
Abyss doesn’t leave for work for another hour or so, so we sneak in an attempt for baby #5 in the shower.
In the wee hours of the morning, Frost teaches Dijon how to drive.
Diesel is being adorable at the peg box.
Abyss is helping Boyd with the final book of this series…
…because it’s his birthday!
Sparkle on, Boyd.
Here he is eyeing his cake after blowing out the candles.
No time for eating it though. We’re going to the library. Abyss tries to play for tips, but there’s another pregnant woman there who goes into labor and the potential crowd is drawn away to freak out about that.
Frost settles in with Diesel to read to him. I’m determined he get through all the toddler books and the library means you read insanely fast.
Boyd checks out a suspicious bookshelf in the basement.
We’re wrapping up the fake Dr. Seuss book series when Frost stands up and gushes. I hope this library has flood insurance. You can see the puddle in the background that’s still there from the previous laboring woman. Anyway, old woman who is overdressed for the library freaks out…but Frost does not.
In fact, Frost continues not freaking out, not even moving a simulated muscle, as Diesel works his way through the first two books of the final toddler series. She’s obviously glitched, but I’m a little scared to reset her mid-birth, so I just leave it and see what will happen.
Eventually the game teleports her back home, jammed into the corner of the front porch to finish birthing.
And so baby #5 is born. It’s a girl named Marigold.
Boyd wants you to see his block tower.
Frost tucks in Diesel so he (and she) can get some sleep.
Also, so far I have given each of the Roulette children a teddy bear. It gives them a moodlet boost while they sleep, but mainly it’s done with the thought that the final child from this challenge (or maybe a random #15) will become the founder for Boolprop.net’s Dear Diary challenge.
And on this note, we wrap it up for the year. Happy Holidays from the Roulettes to you, readers!
