Chapter 7

Kittens and Presents and Weddings, Oh My!

Alex still needs to steal a few high value items to impress her mob boss, so she visits the museum in Brindleton Bay to pick up a few model ships.

While there, she decides to visit the lighthouse.

While enjoying the view, Alex spots something moving down in the grass.

“Here, kitty! Aww, you look so cold…”

Alex immediately falls in love with the poor stray and decides to take her home.

Meet Noodles! Yes, the girls were allowed to name her.

Noodles is immediately popular with all the family members.

“Do NOT touch that vase, Noodles!”

Thanks for involving Brie in the decision, I guess? (We said no, because we know only too well how unpleasant Dina gets while pregnant.)

Also, Dina, you JUST gave birth to a girl, Jodi, so maybe give it a rest for now?

Today is Winterfest! The family celebrates with a grand breakfast…

… followed by decorating the tree, which takes up most of the living room.

So pretty!

I could fill en entire album with pictures of just Don being autonomously adorable with the girls, but then we’d never get to the next generation.

“Hey babe, look what I found!”

“You’re such a dork.”

“I love you.”

Noodles approves.

Father Winter has arrived!

Cora gets an alien toy!

Brie gets a violin! Just what she always wanted.

Don gets a wooden sculpture, a stallion – I guess that’s a compliment?

Alex, however, gets a lump of coal.

“Ho ho ho, my ass. I want a proper present and I’ll fight you for it if I have to!”


“That’ll teach you to give me a lump of coal!”

Alex, I don’t think this is the way to get on the Nice list.

At least one person in the household had an amazing Winterfest.

After Winterfest, Don goes to the gym with his club. Most of his club friends are personal trainers or bodybuilders, like Paolo here, so they always meet up at the local gym.

Kayla Flemming is also a member of the club, but Olivia Goth(!) is just passing by, and abs lady in the background is the gym trainer.

Meanwhile, at home…

Alex is getting impatient, but finances are tight and the family is living from pay-check to pay-check. Being a criminal and a personal trainer isn’t that lucrative.

Alex, has this shed been here the entire time?

“Yup, you just never bother to take pictures outside.”


This shed is kinda empty…

Alex, what is this?

“Where do you think I keep all my stolen goods?”

“These paintings should be enough to pay for a small wedding.”

Origin finally let me buy Wedding Stories so I could update my church/graveyard lot.

Today is the big day!

Brie and Cora get front row seats, and so does Johnny. He’s family, after all.

Alex has invited her friend and fellow kleptomaniac Lilith, as well as Dina. I’m have no idea what is going on with these reactions.

Don has invited Nina, his former roommate and Dina’s sister, and Nina has brought her wife, Alice Martin. Don also invited Darling from his fitness club. I’m still not sure about the reactions…

At least Johnny looks happy for the couple…

“Alex, babe, you have been my best friend, playmate, confidant, and my greatest challenge. But most importantly, you are the love of my life and you, and the family you have given me, makes me feel happier than I could ever imagine and more loved than I ever thought possible.”

“I promise to always keep our lives exciting, adventurous, and full of passion.”

“My dearest Don. Today, I take my place as your wife. May our days be seasoned with love, understanding and respect forever and ever. I choose to spend today, and all of my tomorrows with you.”

“I wish I could promise you riches, but every vault has it’s end. What I do promise you is a life of abundance – of love and support, of sharing, of passion, and of adventure.”

“Can I kiss the bride yet?”

Don obviously has to be extra about it.


Finally some enthusiasm from Nina, here.

And so Don Lothario, bachelor extraordinaire, ties the knot.

The couple feed each other cake and listen to rambling toasts from well-meaning friends.

Until it’s finally time to leave, as Darling and Dina exchange fitness tips.

Back home, the girls are put to bed.

Let’s leave the newlyweds to their wedding night and end chapter 7 here ❤

  1. I don’t think Don was expecting Alex to come home with a cat when he said “send noods.”

    THESE WEDDING REACTIONS ARE AMAZING. Cute vows with an undertone of trepidation. I’ll keep my comments short so I can read faster.
