The Hamilton household was delayed from its normal position in the rotation, but here they are now.

Left to right: Dimitri, Aglaya, Pavel, Marylena, Romina

snapshot_9b11ef2f_0592866a

First things first, Marylena paid the taxes of $20,000. That’s pocket change in this house.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a59286ff

Marylena and Aglaya inherited money from the Cookes.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e5928b7d.jpg

Dimitri and Romina headed down to the library to get jobs from the job board. Romina took a position in her LTW career of Law. Dimitri already fulfilled his first LTW to earn $100k, so he took a job in Business.

Conveniently, they both had the day off.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5928c5e

Romina found herself very hungry when they got home, and was pleased to find some leftover chef salad in the fridge.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_05928e98.jpg

Pavel brought home Drina Bendett on the bus and had a nice outing with her. They’ve got two bolts, but Drina is a little too young for him.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_45929002.jpg

Aglaya and Marylena earned about $5000 at work between the two of them – Aglaya is at the top of the Medical career and Marylena is at the top of Education. They both brought friends home from work.

Time for a party!

(No, I did not screen their formal outfits ahead of time.)

snapshot_9b11ef2f_85929262

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4592927b

It was a lovely ceremony, even if not all the guests made it to their seats.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_85929297

Everyone was very excited, except Samantha Ottomas for some reason.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4592931d.jpg

Cake! Dimitri very politely and neatly fed Romina the first bite. Nobody watched.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_25929340

However, as soon as the ceremonial cake feeding was over, the guests swarmed the kitchen.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e5929353

The party was a roof raiser. Poor Max was sad that he wasn’t invited, and also that he doesn’t live there anymore.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_859294c4

Romina and Dimitri consummated their marriage in their newly redecorated bedroom.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4592954a

Apparently the party wasn’t enough excitement for Pavel; he snuck out with his cousin Jake for the night.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_859295a2

This is why they didn’t go on a honeymoon. Romina actually got pregnant from the last farewell woohoo before Dimitri left college.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_259295df.jpg

Violet was caught growling at the bird, and was scolded.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_059510b7

Pavel got caught sneaking back in because most of the family was awake. He lucked out and didn’t get a lecture, though.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_659511c4

Romina got a couple of cleaning points for work in her cute maternity outfit.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c595139e.jpg

Then it was phone time before everyone but Marylena headed off to work and school.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a59513fd.jpg

Marylena had the morning to herself, and spent it at the robot bench.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8595146a.jpg

The household bills were quite high at $410, so they bought a bank of solar panels.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c59514c0

Dimitri got demoted for playing a video game on his lunch break (even though he was the CEO). Fortunately, he was able to go right back to work.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c595156a.jpg

He brought Farooq Bousaid home and then abandoned him, so Marylena entertained him with an outing.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_859516a6.jpg

Dimitri got re-promoted back to CEO.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a59516c1.jpg

Romina also got a promotion, though I’m not sure what level she is. As a Fortune sim, she’s not going to be missing any days of work for pregnancy or baby care until she’s Permaplat – especially not with 2 grandmothers around.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5951710.jpg

Stupid tree fires. A tree in the backyard already caught fire earlier.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e59517e5.jpg

Marylena aged into an elder!

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5951810.jpg

I remembered to get collars for the dogs.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5951881.jpg

Pavel headed off to college. He earned scholarships of $6250 (grades and all 7 skills) and has a trust fund worth $31,800.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_25952e9a

Marylena decided to keep her shirt, and wear the pants Aglaya had originally aged up in.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_65952f77

Aglaya may have only gotten a paltry +1,000, but she has now maxed all of her skills!

snapshot_9b11ef2f_05952ff8

After an outing with Farooq, Dimitri wasn’t tired at all. He stayed up all night painting while everyone else slept.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_45953051

Romina had her 2nd pop in the bathroom while unclogging the toilet.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4595307b.jpg

Dimitri finished his and Romina’s portraits.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_45953102.jpg

Romina made breakfast for herself and Marylena. Dimitri and Aglaya weren’t hungry.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a595318c.jpg

They have an automatic dog washer (aka Water Wiggler), but Violet apparently hasn’t found it yet, as she was filthy.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_059531a1

Romina wanted to hire a butler. I’ve never done that before, so I figured this was a good household to try it. After all, they’re rich with 3 Fortune sims in the house.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5953236.jpg

Ocean arrived just as everyone was leaving for work. The first thing he did was fire the maid and the gardener.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_659532bd.jpg

I watched him wander around and clean everything all day while everyone was at work.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_65953351

Dimitri was promoted to Business Tycoon! We still only have 9 Business Districts, though, as we’re behind on businesses.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a59534f7.jpg

With that in mind, Dimitri and his moms headed down to Sofa City. It’s already level 10 but still hasn’t turned much of a profit.

Venyamin was one of their first customers. He needs some furniture for his new place.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e5953582

About halfway through the session, Dimitri finally kicked out all the playables who were just hanging out with no money to buy stuff.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_25953731.jpg

Back home, Romina got a promotion. She’s already earned $25,000. Between all 4 members of the family, they earned over $30,000.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a5953874.jpg

Dimitri bought himself a fancy car. Why not?

snapshot_9b11ef2f_259538e3

Dimitri and Romina had some “us time” in their bedroom.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e5953a41.jpg

After some sleep, everyone was back up and gathered in the living room when Romina went into labor at 4 am.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_65953aa4

I had individual pictures of the babies, but they look exactly the same, so here’s one of both. Dimitri’s holding the firstborn, a girl named Lorita, while Romina has the younger, a boy named Timofei. They both have black hair and Romina’s custom eyes.

A note on baby names: each family has its nationality, and the main family lines will only get names of that nationality for their babies (Russian for the Pavlovs, English for the Cookes, and so on). However, for satellite lines like the Hamiltons, any playable that marries in will have their name nationality added to the options. So Dimitri and Romina’s children could roll either a Russian or Italian name (I use a randomizer from behindthename.com to give me random names by nationality).

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e5953c0f.jpg

The back room was turned back into a nursery, for the first time since Pavel was a baby.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e597adf9

“Oh, two new charges. I was not informed of this in advance.”

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c597ae5f.jpg

Ocean is the type to shove bottles in the baby’s mouth and then leave him on the floor.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_6597aedd.jpg

Romina had been wanting a business since she moved in. Now that she’s not pregnant anymore, I finally let her get one.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_0597af0d.jpg

Poor Marylena was the only person who had to work on Saturday.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a597af67.jpg

Aglaya was rather excited to have grandbabies to snuggle.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8597af8a.jpg

Apparently paper stealing is serious business for  Hadassah.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c597b099.jpg

Romina headed out to her new business, the Willow Valley Swim Club. Unfortunately, despite the lot costing $87,000, the ticket price is only $13. Romina will have to get her gold sales badge to get her investment back.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_2597b329.jpg

Romina did sales and went on outings to keep her mood up.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8597b67c.jpg

She got a TV as a networking gift; selling it gave her about 90% of the money she made during her session.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_6597b978.jpg

The business got up to level 1 before Romina headed home.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e597bbfb.jpg

Marya stopped by to visit, so of course she was invited in.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a597bda9.jpg

Ocean continues to feed the babies bottles and leave them on the floor, in stinky diapers.

 snapshot_9b11ef2f_2598b38e.jpg

The bird seemed to be glitched, so I replaced with another one that looks exactly the same. Aglaya taught her to talk right away.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8598b4af.jpg

Family Sunday! Isaiah came as Venyamin’s friend. Orlando is also there, though not pictured.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8598b4cd.jpg

The butler keeps leaving the poor babies on the floor. I think I might have to fire him.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e598b51d.jpg

I realized that Aglaya was not friends with Pavel. This cannot stand.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e598b542.jpg

Marya and Orlando went straight to break in the new hot tub. Romina received it as an outing gift from her time at the pool.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8598b579.jpg

Romina and Dimitri also ignored Family Sunday to have their own private party.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4598b5bc.jpg

It’s the last day of the rotation, so the family had a small Reno Day – railings around the stairs. They’re going to have toddlers soon, after all.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a598b60d.jpg

The butler finally decided to make food, and served cereal just as Marylena made pancakes.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e598b6b5

Then he made some salad. Ok, Ocean, that’s enough.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_0598b70c

Marya is actually master of both dogs, Grimalkin and Violet. I should have gotten the dogs over to her at the beginning of the season, and failed. Well, now Marylena is also master of Violet, so she’ll be staying with the current Hamilton household. Marya was given Grimalkin, though. He’s almost an elder, so he might get some Kibble of Life at her house.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_6598b74a.jpg

I see Pavel’s already in the college mindset.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a598b8c5.jpg

Silly me, I forgot to invite Mauro over until about 3:30.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8598b919.jpg

Ocean made more food, burnt frozen dinners this time. That certainly sounds like the kind of service I’d expect from a snooty butler.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a598b9eb.jpg

And then he started cooking something else, left to shove another bottle in Lorita’s mouth, and started a fire.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_2598b9fa.jpg

Then he put her on the floor, RIGHT BY THE FIRE, so he could go freak out at the fire.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_0598ba14.jpg

Fortunately, the random dormie that Mauro brought as his friend had better sense than the useless butler. He grabbed Lorita and rushed her outside.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_2598ba35.jpg

So much more sense than the butler. I’ll keep an out for this dormie in the future.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_6598ba72

After the fire department put out the fire, Ocean tried to redeem himself by retrieving Lorita from the lawn and changing her diaper. No dice.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_a598bab0

“Don’t you worry, my sweet Lorita. Nana fired that awful butler.”

The maid and the gardener were re-hired, and the butler experiment is over.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e598bb97.jpg

After all that, it’s birthday time for the twins! Isaiah had gone on home, but Hero Dormie of course got to stay.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_0598bbe0.jpg

Poor Lorita’s cake glitched, and her grandmother dumped her on the floor to eat cake.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_8598bbf7.jpg

Here’s Timofei, who’s been ignored because he hasn’t had a horrible day.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_c598bc43.jpg

Lorita finally managed to grow up.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4598be11.jpg

Marylena was exhausted, but couldn’t get upstairs to bed because the stairs were glitched. I ended up having to delete and replace them. The family has had a seriously rough night.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_4598be65.jpg

Dimitri, who’s gotten into the habit of staying up all night, took charge of getting the twins their smart milk.

snapshot_9b11ef2f_e598bfd4.jpgsnapshot_9b11ef2f_2598bfe5

I pushed them a little too far into Fall to get the twins their makeovers. They’re both very cute.

That’s it for the Hamiltons! They’ll be back in their usual place in the rotation for fall. Next up is the Bendett family.
