The final day of the year had finally arrived for the residents of Honeycomb Valley! That evening there would be parties, fireworks and gatherings. This is how Honeycomb Valley celebrated New Years Eve 04!
Before the Night Fell…
On the morning of New Year’s Eve, Esme visited the fireworks stand which had opened in Honeycomb Valley for one week only. She wanted to buy fireworks to bring to the New Years Eve party which was to be held at the teen hangout that night.
Wesley got a parttime job at the stand.
After skating, Finn suddenly complained how Esme shouldn’t invite him if she wasn’t going to hang out with him, and left.
Esme was unfazed. If he wants to leave, he should leave. Bye Finn! And then she had some hot chocolate with Martha.
Umm, Martha…? What’s your mum doing…?
Esme wasn’t Wesley’s only customer that day.
…and Joel and his dad had plans to create a spectacle that night!
At 6, Kyra arrived at Holly‘s house to get ready! The girls were so excited to go to their first real party that night! Sure, they’ve been to prom, but that’s a school party. This was a REAL party! Mothers Lucy and Katie had their doubts about sending their 13 year old daughters (we’re almost 14!!) to a New Years Eve party, but the girls begged and pleaded and eventually got their way. But there was no way they’d be going home alone! The dads would pick them up at 2.
Holly especially spent a lot of time doing her hair and make up.
And she got to wear her pink heels again!
The Teen Party
Jack drove the girls to the party in the police car. I think he wanted to make a statement…
Inside the party was already going strong!
James and Jill hadn’t seen each other since “that night“. Even though James didn’t mention anything about it to her, Jill thought it was a good sign he came up to talk to her. Oh Jill… You’re never getting over him, are you..? But then again, maybe you don’t have to…?
(Also, what’s with that jump Daniel is doing in the background…?)
This seems to be a very special dance indeed…
We’ll check back with the teens later! For now let’s take a look at what some of the other residents of Honeycomb Valley were doing…
The Knight family
Even though it wasn’t midnight yet, the Knight triplets could no longer wait to light their sparklers!
They’re so pretty!
Wendy and Stella
The Harrison family
Joel and Kai had already put out the fireworks for later…
Abbey and Lucas’ Party
The guests even brought food! Boris seemed pleased by this!
It soon got very busy in both Abbey’s and Lucas’ apartment.
There was lots of dancing…
(Yes, Abbey voluntarily danced with Emmett. Wow.)
But Susie felt a bit out of place… Since almost everyone here was in their twenties, Susie, once again, felt old. So, she decided to spend her time eating and drinking.
Her boyfriend, the social butterfly, spent most of his time chatting to people he’d never met before.
Emmett was having the night of his life! First a dance with Abbey and now he even found someone to do a kegstand with! The helpful man was Narai, one of Honeycomb Valley’s students and Harry‘s best friend. Both guys seemed pleased they pulled it off!
What’s this? Another dance with Abbey? Wow, Emmett, who knows, you might get your chance with her after all…
Now, it was my intention to check back at Abbey and Lucas’ party later, but at 23:00 (11 pm), everyone suddenly thanked Abbey for the great party and LEFT! It’s a New Years Eve party people, you’re supposed to stay until midnight at LEAST! I tried to re-invite them, but it didn’t work. Starting a party at 1:00 is not done, according to EA. Grrrr.
Thankfully, there were still other things going on around town, so continue on to…
