"The Silence of The Pigs"

GoodacreF01 002

All is calm in the wee hours of the morning on the Goodacres' Farm.

GoodacreF01 003

Becca: Yoohoo!

GoodacreF01 004

*pop #1*
Dang, I forgot you were pregnant.

GoodacreF01 006

The Goodacres have entirely too many animals on their farm. Time to weed out the old and make way for the new. So long, Sir Oinksalot.

GoodacreF01 010

Thanks for the pork chops!

GoodacreF01 014

The Goodacre Girls, baby Faith...

GoodacreF01 016

and toddler Eve, are already awake and raring to go.

GoodacreF01 017

Loveable farmer Owen Goodacre begins his day with the fruit of the first slaughter. Ham steak for breakfast? Why not!

GoodacreF01 022

Owen is out in the garden before dawn. Now that he has a silver gardening badge he can plant a larger variety of crops. Owen is a "frugal" sim and would really like a discount on the new seeds he has to buy. Maybe he should call his buddy Rocky Kotsomiti about joining that Garden Club he's always talking about.

GoodacreF01 023

Eve still hasn't got the knack of using the potty, but Becca is hopeful that she will be the first toddler in Oceanside to use the potty all by herself.

GoodacreF01 028

GoodacreF01 033

As Owen toils away more chicks are being born. Guess he needs to get on the ball and gather up those eggs.

GoodacreF01 034

GoodacreF01 037

After feeding Faith...

GoodacreF01 040

Becca resumes reading "The Word of The Watcher." After defying death last season Becca has decided to become a Peteran priest and spread the Watcher's love. First she has to read the good book of lifelong happiness. It's proving to be a very long read.

GoodacreF01 045

GoodacreF01 047

GoodacreF01 049

GoodacreF01 051

Eve will probably need braces since she loves to suck on her thumb so much.
*How cute is it that toddlers suck their thumbs!*

GoodacreF01 052

Owen takes a minute from gardening to clean out the barn. With so many chicks being born some of the older chickens are ready to be dinner.

GoodacreF01 054

GoodacreF01 058

After a quick blessing, Becca tears into the ham steak.

GoodacreF01 059

GoodacreF01 061

Eve occupies herself with the singing of the nursery rhyme taught to her by her pre-school teacher, Angie Killeen.

GoodacreF01 068

GoodacreF01 071

Becca finally cleans out the fish that died last season :(

GoodacreF01 072

GoodacreF01 074

The barnyard is really crowded...

GoodacreF01 079

By mid-day Owen is tuckered out. Luckily he has the yummy coffee bean tree to help raise his energy.

GoodacreF01 082

GoodacreF01 089


GoodacreF01 094

GoodacreF01 097

GoodacreF01 098

GoodacreF01 104

The ham spoiled since there is no way to refrigerate the dang thing (BOOOOO!). So Becca tries to master spaghetti again for dinner.

GoodacreF01 107

GoodacreF01 108


GoodacreF01 118

GoodacreF01 119

Back upstairs to feed and change Faith.

GoodacreF01 121

GoodacreF01 123

GoodacreF01 124

And back to bed for Becca.

GoodacreF01 120


GoodacreF01 128

He finally collects those eggs. No more chicks, Mister. We have enough animals on this farm!

GoodacreF01 132

Don't give me those cute eyes Baby Chick! I mean business!

GoodacreF01 137

GoodacreF01 138

GoodacreF01 135

Thursday, Day 11
"Another One Bites The Dust"

GoodacreF01 012

One last huggle before chores.

GoodacreF01 018

Then it's double baby duty.

GoodacreF01 023

Another day, another pig gone. Dead Pig Walking!

GoodacreF01 024

GoodacreF01 027

*pop #2*

GoodacreF01 029

GoodacreF01 031

It's saying something that Becca's only friend outside of her immediate family is a toddler...

GoodacreF01 034

Becca is woefully behind on her housework. I think something might of died in that toilet.

GoodacreF01 038

Since Owen now has the gift of talking to the plants, he has the undivided attention of the trees to try out his new comedy material.

GoodacreF01 047

Becca steals a moment while the kids are sleeping to read more about the glorious Watcher.

GoodacreF01 062

Those must have been some excellent jokes! Owen now has mouth-watering oranges!

GoodacreF01 072

More potty-training for Evie.

GoodacreF01 074

GoodacreF01 077

Becca sneaks out to eat some of the energizing coffee plant.

GoodacreF01 080

And Owen proceeds to tell more jokes to the strawberry plants.
Owen: What do you call a sheep with no head and no legs? A cloud!
*That joke comes courtesy of my 10 year old.*

GoodacreF01 083

Eve discovers butterflies and chases them around the yard.

GoodacreF01 091

Unfortunately it starts to rain so Becca brings Eve back inside.

GoodacreF01 098

But not before Eve gets a chance to sing her nursery rhyme in the rain.

GoodacreF01 100

Things I didn't know #499 - Kicking defenseless garden sculptures increases fun like crazy.
G.I. Joooooe!

GoodacreF01 108

*gasp* I can't wait to see toddler Faith!

GoodacreF01 109

Owen begins the process of packing all of the fruits and vegetables he has harvested into cute little crates for selling in the grocery store.

GoodacreF01 112

Then he pays the bills...

GoodacreF01 116

and tidies up.

GoodacreF01 119

GoodacreF01 121

GoodacreF01 128

It's a cold and rainy Fall night. Becca whips up a steaming bowl of comfort soup for herself and Owen.

GoodacreF01 135

She attempted to use the bathroom, take a bath, and go to bed, but it looks like sleep got the best of her. Becca falls asleep at the toilet.

GoodacreF01 139

She makes it to bed eventually.

GoodacreF01 142

After quickly potty-training Eve...

GoodacreF01 144

Owen joins Becca in bed.
