An Era of Charming Tales: (Mike and Rose) New Year … Fresh Start

Rose was anxious to get their new house set up and get settled in before the wedding.   Mike agreed that it was a great idea and they decided to get the ball rolling two days after the new year.

Aster was still on winter break from school and was a willing volunteer.   Teenage boy power is a great thing.

LOL willing when he was not taking selfies to send to Molly .. showing off the guns!

Ugh! The task seems daunting!

01-02-18_3-33-37 PM01-02-18_3-35-49 PM01-02-18_3-37-34 PM

Aster stifled a small snicker as he heard Mike gasp, “OHHH!  UHH Rose darling … wait … whaa … ”

“Yes honey?  What do you need? I have been trying to decide what color to do this room in.”

01-02-18_3-45-25 PM

“UH hon .. wait .. wait … I have an idea!  Why don’t we hire a paint crew to do this one for us?”  Mike said as he lead her out of the room.

” It would be so much … UM …… I mean  … I need you downstairs. I don’t know where to put any of your books.”

Rose shrugged her hesitant agreement and went to clean up.

Mike grabbed up his phone and made the call to hire the painters, “Come quickly!”

His love has many talents but paining rooms is NOT one of them.

Rose looked at the boys as they worked together.  She smiled to herself.  She loved how much her little brother admired her dear Mike.

“Hey mini Mike,” Rose chided, “We need to get those boxes in.  Come on leave the master to his work and give me a hand.”   01-02-18_7-40-27 PM

Hearing a commotion outside, Mike rushed out only to find himself in the middle of an all-out snowball war.

“Help get the boxes in,” he laughed, “right.”

“Hey, he started it,” Rose said winding up her pitch.

Dropping the bags by the bed, Mike pauses to consider that in only a few weeks he will be waking up to this view every morning, in the arms of his beloved wife.  His sweet Rose.

01-02-18_9-45-29 PM

Rose seems to have a few pondersings of her own.

01-02-18_9-47-01 PM01-02-18_9-49-06 PM01-02-18_9-55-28 PM01-02-18_9-59-57 PM01-02-18_10-01-45 PM01-02-18_10-14-02 PM01-02-18_10-15-17 PM

Mike shook his head, Augh a broken toilet already.  Donning a wrench, Mike chuckled to himself as he made the repair,

01-02-18_10-16-27 PM

wouldn’t the gossip rags love to have a shot of this?   He could see the headlines now.


Best get my scepter out and finish the job, he muses.

01-02-18_10-17-26 PM01-02-18_10-23-04 PM

Freshen up a bit, for the Pizza (wo)man cometh.

01-02-18_10-24-20 PM01-02-18_10-26-34 PM01-02-18_10-41-21 PM

Aster heads back home to grab mom and dad for the open house later this evening.

01-02-18_10-46-21 PM


A little time alone …

01-02-18_10-49-09 PM

A boy .. a girl .. and a sunset.  Perfection!

“I know I hear .. they are here!”  Rose batted her eyelashes.

“What if I don’t WANT to go?  What if I want to stay here?”

01-02-18_11-17-40 PM


“Oh, it is lovely!” Charlii and Violet were already looking around as the rest of the gang were arriving.

01-02-18_11-41-25 PM01-02-18_11-44-13 PM

Rose was very excited to see all the ladies BUT especially so Diana, the designer and architect who made this Rose’s Chateau happen.

“I cannot express my gratitude enough for all the work you put into this wonderful gift for Mike and me!”

01-03-18_10-44-46 PM

“THANK you so much!”

01-03-18_10-47-16 PM01-02-18_11-41-49 PM

UH OHHH!  NO joy in Mudville!

01-02-18_11-46-22 PM01-02-18_11-48-19 PM


Salome whispers to Aster, “Well maybe if we all just pretend we cannot hear it.”

01-02-18_11-49-18 PM


“Rosie,” Bruno was shouting as he hurried down to the beach, “Everyone has been looking for you!  What are you doing out here?  Why did you leave without telling anyone where you had gone?”

01-02-18_11-56-12 PM

“I heard the singing again, Bruno.” Rose’s face was anxious and confused.  “It was drawing me here.  I cannot find … ”

“Rosie, you have to come back to the house.  You cannot be out here alone. Come on with me my love. ”

Bruno’s heart was heavy with dismay.  Rose Red had been behaving very peculiarly for the past few weeks.  He would insist she make a visit to  Doc Ellie tomorrow.

With most of the children gone from the nest now, Prince and Snow decided to move out of the big house.  Both longed to be near the shore.

Prince had commissioned workers to renovate the old lighthouse that stood near the shore where they first met.

OH MY those two.  Frost on the roof but FIRE in the furnace.

01-04-18_12-57-32 AM

Snow watched as her baby boy left for school.   This was the right move, she knew it in her heart.   He was so happy here and with Officer Theis right door, he was safe too.

  1. Adorable update! Both of the homes are Charmingly perfect. I loved the interplay of Rose and “the boys”, lol. King Mike and his throne….too funny. Looks like evil step-witch is after Rose Red, nervous about that. Lily and Alexander having troubles already? I hope they have a lovely home of their own. Of course, I am honored to have attended the house warming party. Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much. That building is incredible as Is all of her stuff! When she offered to build the Château for Rose and Mike I about fell off my chair! If you have not checked her galleria you need to go see it your mouth will follow open. Her and another one of my super favorites Simoniona. All for both is no cc.

      1. She is a precious friend! One day we’re going to meet when we do our German meet up! She’s so funny I practice my German on her and she practices Her English and me. We both do badly LOL but she’s much better at her “badly.” As a builder in our Sims community she is far under valued! I’m trying to talk her into Twitter but she won’t budge LOL

      2. She is sweet and humble. She is part of my Facebook group and I am part of hers. Hers is German and way larger than mine LOL. Way way way! Lol and yes simmer divas Run in all areas of our community don’t they LOL Twitter is the worst I think. I have some young friends who were on my personal FB friends list and they will not return follow on Twitter. What is that! But the Simlit community is pretty good at drama too. Little over year ago someone warned me to get out because a big person was trying to destroy me … say what lol … I was like what is this ridiculousness. I am just an addict trying to get my fix as I scribble out my stories. I just don’t know what’s wrong with us don’t we know it’s a game … It is supposed to be fun! It’s one of the reasons I like your stories so much you just relaxed and you have fun with it. Save the drama for the story.

  3. Cute update. I LOVED the picture where Mike seems to have been defeated in the snowball war, topping the laughter off by the victory stance Rose does in the next picture.

    Wow…Mike and the throne…

    Those pictures of Mike and Rose were beautiful. I love seeing love, especially when it’s an obsession couple of mine. Look forward to the wedding.

    A Charming baby on the way…?

  4. What a great chapter. I loved all the screenies and how it looked like they were actually cleaning and getting the house ready. And the paint on the face…lol….good one! That was great! I also love the pose of Mike taking his beloved over his shoulder. lol Also….oh no…a mysterious cloaked figure luring Rosie away….I get a chill just seeing that figure….

  5. What a bunch of goofballs! I absolutely love these three together, working hard to make Rose and Mike’s future house comfortable for the future babies! Although, someone should tell Aster the proper way to work in construction. Those sandals are not construction appropriate wear! XD Anyway, the house is very lovely, and Mike and Rose are extremely adorable. I love that shot of the sun beaming onto their faces as they kiss! Now let’s hope that nothing ominous happens… I’m looking at that picture of Rose and Bruno and becoming extremely curious of what is in store!

    1. I know when I got that shot my heart skipped a beat! Another reader brought up the fact that short of taking the trash out there was no evidence to suggest Aster did too much to help .. unless you count HELPING yourself to pizza I adore him .. he is his father’s son when you play him in game ❤

        Darky is exactly the entity you describe however it’s not a real being.
