Today was my birthday, Twisk’s as well. Puddles came to deliver my present, which I was really happy about since she’s my last original neighbor and one of my dream neighbors I’ve locked in Dafdilly. 🙂
I didn’t, though, but okay 😛
Another cake! I already have two on the table in my main room, would three cakes be overboard? 😛
But it was just your birthday the other day! 😆
The first words she said after entering from the gate:
Thank you! 😀
I thought it would be cool to have a snowman right by the gate, but I totally messed it up after realizing you can’t prop up snowballs into snowmen on the pavement. >_<
Then we exchanged presents! I gave her a lovely phone, which I forgot to leave out for her to touch in our last WiFi meeting, and two of my favorite shirts, the silk bloom shirt and dreamy shirt. And I received a wonderful gift, the last painting I need for my museum’s exhibit! Thanks!! 😀
While waiting for others to arrive, I showed her around. 🙂
I don’t know if these holding areas (in case anyone needed to temporarily drop items) were worth it; they took 8 pattern slots and there was a lot more I wanted to make, like cupcakes and gumdrops.
Lollipop island! xD Well, the lollipops could have been a lot better if there were more shades of each color (i.e. dark purple, medium purple, light purple). All I could really do was a white highlight. But they’re colorful and I had fun matching flowers with them!
I’m much happier with how these ice cream cones turned out; the cone contains browns that are used for winter dirt, so I couldn’t have a dirt background, and the colors I used for the ice cream are the same that are used for snow, but I think it turned out looking okay regardless.
In the board game CandyLand, the object of the game is to make it to the end at Candy Castle, so in this case, I guess the town hall serves as Candy Castle. xP It explains the royal-themed prizes for winning, too: either a royal crown, crown, throne, or lots of bells.
Sleeping Rain ^_^
I finished showing Rain around and was going to suggest that we go ahead and do a two-player race when Skye (also known as MonkeyDoodle) showed up, saving me from leaving my position as judge:
Welcome Skye, thanks for coming!
I gave her a pink rose and peachy shirt, and her present for me is that treasure box by the rock. Inside was a blue dot parasol to go with the rest of my blue apparel. 😛 Thank you!
Starting the King Tut/minefield race!
Rain was first by a longshot since Skye fell into a pitfall; cautiousness won over speediness, a thought that occurred to me as I was planting the pitfalls. 😛
Next was a treasure hunt! I buried Gulliver items, snowman furniture, spotlight items, and an assortment of other things. I hope everyone found some good stuff!
Yay, Jemma’s here! 😀 Thank you so much for coming, it wouldn’t have been the same with just three people!
I gave her a snow shirt and Kiki’s picture since she was one of her favorites and moved away. 😦
Jemma hunted for the remaining treasure and then we began CandyLand! I don’t have any pictures at all from this, I was very busy “drawing cards” using a random number generator. Numbers were assigned with color cards and double color cards, so with every result from the generator I had to check which color card matched up with it and type that in with AC:WW’s keyboard, while trying to keep track where everyone was. Maybe others can fill in with pictures! 🙂
Anyway, Skye got to the finish first and chose a crown as her prize; then Rain, who chose the royal crown; and Jemma close behind, who chose the throne over bells. Then we celebrated with party poppers!
We got pretty good at setting them off close together using the timer. 🙂
Jemma had a few poppers left when we decided to stop, so she got close-up shots from all of us 😆
We did another race since Jemma missed the first one, only this time there were no pitfalls since I dug them up during the treasure hunt, so it was just a King Tut race. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but you can see one of the King Tuts getting up from falling in the background. 😛 Rain didn’t fall, so naturally she won again. ^^ Everyone got equal prizes since it was just luck — no skill in avoiding pitfalls.
Finally we tried out the wrestling game, in which the three guests faced off in a 3×3 square surrounded by pitfalls (a game I first saw here, I think). I couldn’t see well because there was a tree in the way, but all of a sudden I saw both Skye and Jemma struggling in pitfalls with Rain in the middle of the square, the last one standing. 😆 While I worked to sort out the prizes with all the various money bags in my pockets, everyone fell into even more pitfalls over and
over, whether accidentally or purposefully I’m not sure. 😛
Jemma had to go after that, and it was getting very late for Teru, so I partied over after chatting with her and Skye for a while:
Thank you so much for coming, all of you, I hope you at least had a decent time! 😛
A new neighbor moved in today to replace Bill, placing his house right next to the CandyLand track.
At first I thought he was Teru’s Antonio because of the Chic pattern he’s wearing, made by her character Breeze. But he’s a new Antonio, I just have that pattern displayed at my Ables’. 😛
Now time to deliver Teru’s birthday present for me to Blathers… 😀
I wish he’d talk about the paintings a little like he does with the other exhibits. Can the real names not be used because of copyrights or something??
Yay, my painting exhibit is now complete!
