Busto 1

Year 12-16 (Spring) - Even Butter!

Busto Family:
Howie Busto - Male Elder - Fortune - Have 6 Pets Reach the Top Career Level - Leo
Tina Miller - Female Adult - Fortune - Become Business Tycoon - Scorpio
Hedwig Busto - Female Teen - Popularity - Become General - Gemini
Rufus Busto - Male Teen - Pleasure - Have 50 Dream Dates - Scorpio

Last Round: The Busto's house was a busy one last round.  Rufus grew up into a teenager and chose to be a pleasure sim. The kids grew "overly" close, and Howie found Tina Miller downtown and invited her to move in.  By the end of the round they were engaged.  As Howie wishes for pets the family adopted a puppy named Jake.

 We walk into the house just as Tina discovers she is pregnant.  Howie was very excited, but really wanted the baby to have the Busto name.

 There was a very very small ceremony in the living room with the kids.  There aren't many friends in this family and Tina wasn't up to much fanfare.

 Hedwig waves a congrats to the happy couple as the marriage is sealed.  Tina and Howie are both very happy about the wedding and the new baby.

 On a Friday night Hedwig and Rufus go to the "teen hangout" Inter@ctive.  They don't go in right away, preferring to play kick bag with each other.

 Saturday continues to be family day at the lake and we see Hedwig talking with Esmond.  There were many people from the town there.  The family even brought Jake to get some exercise.

 Esmond grilled up some hotdogs  and everyone sat down and talked and bonded.  The hot dogs were very tasty.

 Hedwig decided to try her hand at fishing, and she found she's not that good yet.  She tries hard though and will get better with time.

 At the lake Hedwig met Charles Profitt and they hit it off, so she invited him over to the house.  Now she has someone other than her brother to give backrubs too.

 Soon the two are in love, and this is a good match for the town.  (I'm so glad all of the kids are matching up so well so far.)

 They spend hours talking about everything, and I do mean everything.  Even butter!

 Suddenly we find the kids in Howie and Tina's bed, and it seems they took the next step in their relationship....although possibly skipping a few in between.

 There is a new puppy in the house, and her name is Suzi.  Hopefully Jake will like her and the family can have some puppies soon.  Howie takes really good care of his dogs.

 Jake seems to be ok with Suzi as a puppy, and hopefully this bonding will care over in Suzi's adulthood.

 Suddenly there is screaming from the kitchen and we find Tina in labor.  A baby or 2 is on the way.


 Ok, let's try this again.  A new baby or two is on the way, and Howie quickly runs in from taking care of the dogs, and Rufus is really freaked out.


 This was getting annoying at this point, so we had the family move out and move back in and we will try this again.  Rufus and Temperance do start getting close during all of these crashes and they would make a good match.

 We are once again back at the pregnancy and labor and go to try this again.


 We try removing all custom content and try this again.  I'm starting to get worried about this neighborhood.


 That wasn't it, but FINALLY I figure out the problem.  Some random sim files in a totally random folder are trying to load as custom content, which the game couldn't do.  So FINALLY, we have labor, and then.....

 A BABY!!!  There is only one baby, and it's a boy.  He gets BC name #142, Antonio and is FINALLY born on May 25 in year 14.

 Suzi quickly follows the birth with a birthday of her own, and is a pretty adult dog.

 Rufus gets his first kiss from romance sim Danielle Rosada.

 Hedwig leaves late one night for University and Howie goes out to say goodbye.

 Life progresses with the family, and most days look similar.  Rufus spends a lot of time painting, and Howie plays chess.

 Rufus spends times with friends he's made at school, but there is really only one girl on his mind.

 Rufus gets on the phone and calls Temperance over to the house.  Soon they have mutual crushes on each other and seem to be another possible couple for the future.

 Before you know it, it's Antonio's birthday and Howie brings his boy to the cake.

 Hedwig doesn't make it back from uni for the event and the birthday is very small, only family.

 The baby is missing a LOT of his head and we hope that will resolve itself.

 Other than having not hair, and only 1/2 a head he's rather a cute little Busto.

 Tina takes Antonio to the mirror and soon he has a full head of hair.

 Before they were ready it was Howie who would leave the family.  On Oct 16, 16 at 7:02 PM the grim's visit came.  It was a sudden and very sad event.

 Everyone mourned his death, and while he may not have felt completely ready to go, he didn't fight too hard, having gotten to see his grandkids grown up a lot, and his son born and grown to a toddler.

 At the very end of spring we get a slightly happier moment to remember as Suzi gives birth to a couple of puppies.  Howie would have loved them.  Now we head into summer and hope for a more joyous time.


  1. hedwig and Charles got together in my game too. And, Howie got a pretty blonde. LOL What is it about the Bustos getting pretty sims?

  2. Yeah, a new baby Busto!!! *sniff* Howie died! :(

  3. It was very sad when Howie died, but I knew he was going to soon. I just wanted him to have a baby with Tina first, which he did. :)
