Hero — Girl # 2, Teen

Taliesin — Boy #1, Teen

Tova — Girl #3, Child

Peter — Boy # 2, Chlid

Scarlett — Girl # 4, Child

Bran — Boy # 3, Baby

We start off the chapter with Taliesin and Lenore doing household maintenance….exciting stuff I’m sure.

03-15-18_6-01-17 PM.png Peter completes his childhood aspiration and is now working on Artistic Prodigy.

03-15-18_6-01-31 PM.pngHe is pretty talented with the basketball .

03-15-18_6-03-42 PM.pngChad’s second youth potion.

Chad: Need to stay young for all the baby making.

Lenore coughs up all her food.

03-15-18_6-20-29 PM.pngHero: So my parents are crazy. They want to have 12 girls and 12 boys. Luckily this isn’t a legacy so I’m not required to marry!

Boy from school: Wait…this isn’t a legacy house?

Hero: No, thank Plumbob!

03-15-18_6-22-43 PM.png Chad is earning these promotions rather quickly!

03-15-18_6-32-21 PM.pngSo it looks like Lenore is laying down the law on poor Tova, but really she’s just helping with homework.

03-15-18_6-35-04 PM.pngSo then the Yeti and the princess looked at eachother and said “F this” and walked into the sunset THE END.

Tova: Mom are you sure that’s the ending. It doesn’t make any sense. Shouldn’t the princess have her happily ever after with the prince?

Lenore: The princess is a strong independent woman who don’t need no man to be happy. Plus the Yeti is cooler so they like to hang.

Super efficient Lenore to the rescue!

03-16-18_9-32-42 AM.pngJust in time for Bran’s birthday!

03-16-18_9-39-24 AM.pngLook at him being so cute! Bran is inquisitive.

Lenore teaches Bran a few things then reads him a bedtime story.

03-16-18_9-50-07 AM.pngNext up is Tova’s birthday.

Peter: Here you go sis have some confetti.

Tova: Um thanks bro. Just don’t set my cake aflame with your confetti.

03-16-18_10-17-37 AM.pngTova rolled Neat as her new trait. And she is looking for her soulmate which makes her alluring.

03-16-18_7-13-48 PM.pngHero is working on her comedy skill. I can’t go any further with her aspiration until she is an adult.

03-16-18_7-20-00 PM.pngBran working on his communication skill like his siblings before him.

03-16-18_7-31-07 PM.pngAnd it’s Hero’s birthday!

03-16-18_7-42-22 PM.pngAnd another kid with the Loves Music trait. I think if another kid rolls loves music I’m just going to roll again.

03-16-18_7-46-01 PM.pngBailey came over to wish her sister happy birthday. These two are just so gorgeous.

03-16-18_7-52-10 PM.pngHero went to San Mysuno to see if there was any potintial spouse material, but alas the pickings were slim and Hero is a mean sim so I figure I would leave it up to story progression and moved her out.

 

03-16-18_8-58-39 PM.pngSince Hero moved out it’s time for some baby makin’! First try was unsuccessful but the second time was the charm.

03-16-18_9-09-56 PM.pngLenore invited Hero over to work on her portrait.

Everyone is keeping in shape.

03-16-18_10-54-57 PM.pngLenore has been working out a lot this pregnancy. Also it’s project time.

03-16-18_11-27-44 PM.pngLenore is a master in the kitchen. With all these kids someone has to be.

03-17-18_10-26-47 PM.pngSo Tova invited this guy over from school. I forgot what is name is, but Tova asked him out on a date.

They went to the spa where they had their first kiss and shared a steamy makeout session in the sauna. These two lovebirds are now going steady.

Lenore went into labor with baby #8 and Chad was feeling a little flirty. And then Chad decides that while his wife is in labor he’s going to man the front desk.

03-17-18_10-58-07 PM.pngWelcome baby girl #5 Octavia De Rolo.

03-17-18_11-22-38 PM.pngTova goes on another date with her boyfriend and Tova gives him a promise ring.

Tova: Gotta lock it down!

03-17-18_11-28-06 PM.png Now we just have to wait until Tova is an adult.

03-17-18_11-38-14 PM.pngIt’s Peter’s birthday!

03-17-18_11-50-55 PM.pngPeter is now one gloomy teen. His aspiration is computer whiz just like big brother Taliesin.

03-18-18_12-12-54 AM.pngBran is still stinkin adorable.

03-18-18_12-33-02 AM.pngSo Lenore forgot to clean the lint trap out after the last load went through so now she is paying the price. Don’t worry she extinguished herself.

I guess this is where I will leave you.

Chapter 2.1: Triple Threat

Last Time:

♦ Claire went spouse hunting and met Phillip who is an unflirty sim. Clare and Phillip spent a night of chemically induced passion together. Phillip still refuses to give Claire hugs.

♦ There were four fires, three of which happened at one party.

♦ Maxwell died but luckily for him his daughter’s best friends with the Grim Reaper so she pleaded for him to live another day. Not wanting to repeat the experience any time soon Max takes a youth potion.

♦ Miko had her elder birthday and Wash had his YA birthday and moved out.

♦ Kiera, the first baby of generation three was born!

Max: Well hello there nooboo! I’m your grandpa and I’m so happy to see you and not be six feet under. Now all I need is for you’re mother to have one more baby and then my life’s work will be complete.

12-22-17_8-32-03 AM.pngClaire, giving up on Phillip and his no touching policy, decides to ask the newly widowered Axel Caliente out on a date.

*Side Note: Axel’s mother was Dina Caliente and his father was Hugo Villareal. And his cousin is Phillip. Needless to say his family tree is a mess.

Claire: Hey there sexy! How about we ditch Windenburg and go into the city?

Axel: Sure I’d go anywhere with you.

This date is very successful, unlike the one with Phillip. Claire has her second “first kiss”.

12-22-17_8-43-26 AM.png They even get frisky at the karaoke bar, and yes I did plop down a closet just so I could fulfill Claire’s woohoo wish.

It was sometime during this date that Claire learned Axel was unflirty, yes you read correctly Axel is unflirty! Although as you can see he doesn’t seem to be as unflirty as his cousin Phillip.

Claire: Okay confetti I’m ready for you! This is very satisfying.

12-22-17_8-54-20 AM.pngClaire: Axel, guess what? I’ve some exciting news to tell you!

Axel: Um…

Claire: Oh never mind you won’t be able to guess….We’re pregnant!

Axel: *Stund and shocked*

Claire: So…you wanna move in with me?

 

12-22-17_9-08-17 AM.pngSo Axel moves in and he has two daughter’s, or at least I had assumed they were his daughter’s based on sharing the same last name. However they turned out to be Axel’s late wife’s kids with another man, Jefferson Ruiz, who actually turns out to be one of Claire’s co-workers.

Needless to say since they weren’t Axel’s kids I sent the girls to live with their father and his wife.

12-22-17_9-29-14 AM.pngUpon moving in Axel completes a Milestone! +5

12-22-17_9-33-46 AM.pngAnd Kiera ages up! She has her dad’s blond hair!

12-22-17_9-39-06 AM.png She’s super adorable! I know….I know I say that about every toddler I ever have. Kiera rolled the clingy trait.

12-22-17_9-47-52 AM.pngAnd here is Axel.  His traits are Lazy, Vegetarian, and Unflirty. He aspires to be a Mansion Baron. I used his adult free action to join the business career branch.

Kiera: Nom nom nom….squish squish squish….ok shows over people!

12-22-17_10-07-41 AM.pngAxel is turning out to be great ISBI spouse material. I have decided if Claire rolles a wish to marry Axel then they will get married, but for now they’re just boyfriend/girlfriend.

01-22-18_12-43-24 PM.pngSlight house makeover. I added a laundry room which I swore I took a picture of.

01-22-18_7-28-50 PM.pngClaire: blah…blah…blah….something about a dragon and a fairy…..blah…blah…okay kid go to sleep now.

Such a lovely story Claire.

 

01-22-18_7-52-45 PM.pngAutonomous kissing is the best!

01-22-18_7-53-32 PM.pngAxel started a fire in the fire pit and then went inside to dance. I quickly had Claire put the fire out before it could burn down the house! I mean REALLY Axel!

01-22-18_8-08-02 PM.pngI saw this glowing stump and wondered what it could be.

01-22-18_8-08-49 PM.pngI sent Claire to check it out and she dug out an alien!

01-22-18_8-09-04 PM.png Yep that’s what it said…she found an alien. I checked her inventory and it’s one of those specimen in a jar thing you can also get if you travel in the rocket ship.

01-22-18_8-08-41 PM.png While Claire is at work Axel got a promotion to Office Assistant.

01-22-18_8-12-27 PM.png Claire too got a promotion!

01-22-18_8-16-04 PM.pngOne of my favorite things about laundry in the Sims is searching for pocket change.

01-22-18_8-33-12 PM.pngREALLY Claire. Please don’t make this a habit on every chapter. -10

01-22-18_8-53-30 PM.pngI decided to update the kitchen a little bit. It of course is a work in progress.

01-22-18_9-03-59 PM.pngClaire: Oh dear! Can you wait a little bit longer nooboo? Mama has to finish an experiment.

01-22-18_9-26-35 PM.pngSo Claire had triplets…..

The first triplet is a boy named Marty (green bassinet). Marty is of course named after Marty McFly from the Back to the Future trilogy.

Second triplet is a girl named Rose (yellow bassinet). Rose is named after Rose Tyler from Doctor Who.

And third triplet is a girl named Amy (blue bassinet). Amy is named after Amy Pond also from Doctor Who.

01-22-18_9-28-36 PM.pngClaire: So I had triplets. I’m going to take that paid family vacation after all.

When the triplets came home Axel immediately came to help. Guys I think he’s a keeper.

As a side note Phillip has yet to come over and meet is daughter Kiera.

01-22-18_9-25-06 PM.png With the birth of the triplets Max completes his aspiration! Now he can sit back and enjoy the rest of his elderhood.

Max: Does that mean I can retire?

Nope! Sorry I already used your free action.

Max: Dam it!

01-22-18_9-51-56 PM.pngZoe: Hello there great-granddaughter!

Kiera: *gasp* Don’t move…don’t move…maybe it will go away!

01-22-18_9-51-59 PM.pngI mean look at that face! She is traumatized.

01-22-18_10-06-45 PM.pngOh dear the Moon’s are visited by a dark and ominous cloud!

01-22-18_10-06-55 PM.pngThis time Grim has come for Miko.

01-22-18_10-07-26 PM.pngMax and Axel morn over the loss of Miko. Claire is getting a much needed sleep so she misses the whole thing.

01-22-18_10-10-13 PM.pngMiko joins Jude and Zoe in eternal rest. Also I put up walls around the graves so I won’t have mourning sims every 5 seconds.

01-22-18_10-12-19 PM.png This is probably one of the saddest sad moodlets I have seen.

01-22-18_10-37-59 PM.pngIn order to lessen the blow of losing a true love Max spends time with his grand-babies.

01-22-18_10-55-12 PM.png Hey guys Claire finally has the wish to marry Axel! It only took the loss of her mother to realize she wants to spend the rest of her life with the man she loves, but hey no one is perfect.

01-22-18_11-24-10 PM.pngClaire: Hey babe, recent events have made me realize that I shouldn’t wait any longer. I want to marry you, so do you wanna marry me?

01-22-18_11-24-17 PM.pngAxel: Oh my plumbob! I thought you’d never ask! Of course I will!

But before their parents can tie the knot the triplets have their birthdays.

01-22-18_11-41-32 PM.pngFirst up Marty who rolled the silly trait.

01-22-18_11-47-47 PM.pngFollowed by Rose who has the wild trait.

01-22-18_11-53-19 PM.pngLastly but not least is Amy with the angelic trait. And yes I gave all of them freckles.

So that’s it for the chapter, but before I say adieu I have some bonus pics.

01-18-18_9-50-25 AM.pngDon’t worry, Big sis Hero to the rescue!

01-18-18_10-31-14 AM.pngUpdated kitchen. I’m still not 100% happy with it, but I’ll get there….hopefully.

01-18-18_10-34-58 AM.pngBailey invites her friend Chad over for some stargazing.

01-18-18_10-48-56 AM.pngLenore wanted a basketball hoop so I obliged her, and Taliesin is practicing his b-ball skillz.

01-18-18_10-56-14 AM.pngIt’s time for Peter to become a child!

01-18-18_11-08-16 AM.pngHere he is, so far he looks a lot like Taliesin. He is a rambunctious scamp with the gloomy trait, which I think fits with his toddler fussy trait.

01-18-18_11-10-59 AM.pngPeter: Arg! I’m the Dread Pirate Peter the scourge of the seven seas!

Peter finished his first Milestone, yay!

01-18-18_11-30-46 AM.png Promotion! I think when Chad is done with his current aspiration I will have Lenore go to work and Chad be a stay at home dad.

01-18-18_11-31-58 AM.png Look at those guns!

01-18-18_12-00-22 PM.pngBailey’s first kiss! How romantic there is a stinky bowl in the room.

01-18-18_12-02-04 PM.pngBefore Chad has a chance to escape home I have Bailey ask him to be her boyfriend. He said yes by the way. I wasn’t until much later that I realized both her boyfriend and her dad had the same first name.

01-21-18_4-56-04 PM.pngThe bathroom is a mess, but hey we now have laundry!

01-21-18_4-59-25 PM.pngFirst load of the game!

01-21-18_5-31-36 PM.pngLenore’s first youth potion.

01-21-18_5-34-31 PM.pngBailey: Hey bea, it’s my birthday you wanna come over to celebrate!

01-21-18_5-39-38 PM.pngBut first we age up Chad. I just love his expression!

01-21-18_5-40-34 PM.pngNext up is our birthday girl!

Before I give the couple a makeover Bailey proposes!

01-21-18_6-37-48 PM.pngShe is super pretty! Her final trait is Neat, just like her mom. I think she reached level 7 or 8 in her athletic skill.

After the makeover Bailey and Chad elope. And then Bailey moves out with her hubby to Willow Creek. They live in a house with Chad’s mom Priscilla.

01-21-18_7-04-33 PM.pngAnd of course with an extra space in the household Lenore and Chad try for a baby.

01-21-18_7-13-08 PM.pngThe first time was unsuccessful but the second was.

01-21-18_7-20-34 PM.png Tova completes her aspiration and now is working on Whiz kid…I believe.

01-21-18_8-51-42 PM.pngAnd another birthday! This time it’s Taliesin!

01-21-18_9-03-13 PM.pngHere he is! He received the Genius trait with the computer whiz aspiration.

01-21-18_9-08-59 PM.pngBailey came over for a visit.

01-21-18_9-23-53 PM.pngHer portrait is now added to the wall. 01-21-18_9-41-53 PM.pngI added an actual laundry room. It’s one of the pre-made rooms but I re-colored the room.

Bathroom learning with dad, it’s pretty magical.

01-21-18_9-57-14 PM.pngLook out! Wild child alert!

01-21-18_10-05-04 PM.pngThis isn’t the first time the washer broke, but it is the first time it overflowed.

01-21-18_10-20-30 PM.pngProject time again. This time Taliesin conned his best friend, Seji, to help him.

01-21-18_10-51-36 PM.pngAnd it’s Scarlett’s birthday! I used the low carb cake this time.

01-21-18_11-00-28 PM.pngAnd here is beautiful Scarlett. She is a rambunctious scamp with a Mean streak. This should be fun.

01-21-18_11-05-04 PM.pngMom and daughter spend the day together. They even go over to Bailey’s house but she was at work.

Then Lenore went into Labor!

01-22-18_8-45-37 AM.pngWe have a boy! Meet Bran De Rolo baby boy #3. And where was Chad during all of this?

01-22-18_8-46-14 AM.pngWatching tv in the lobby. That’s what his action que said, but when I looked the tv was off.

Anyway I’ll leave the chapter here. I’m excited to see what story progression has in store for Bailey. I do want to get Bailey up on the gallery but I’m debating to wait until some of her siblings age up and move out.

 

Chapter 2.0: The Trials and Tribulations of Claire Moon

Last Time:

• Wash had his teen birthday.  • Ryder had her YA birthday, Married Maureen Kibo, and moved out.

• Max had his Elder birthday  • Claire had her YA birthday and is now Torch Holder!

So basically lots of birthday’s  happened last chapter. So let’s move on to the reign of Claire Moon!

12-20-17_11-22-33 PM.pngClaire decides to head out on the town in search of love. This guys cute but married, moving on!

12-20-17_11-24-19 PM.pngLittle known fact: Claire loves Karaoke.

12-20-17_11-28-12 PM.pngI didn’t know you could do this but Claire is fixing this box and she got a snowglobe out of it.

12-20-17_11-33-20 PM.pngClaire: Check this out Grim

Grim: Hahah who know cat videos could be so entertaining!

12-20-17_11-39-55 PM.pngGrim: Thanks for giving more insights into the sim condition.

Claire: Oh cool, come here bestie!

Grim: I’m not sure what a bestie is but free hugs are always appreciated.

12-20-17_11-44-13 PM.pngClaire also said her cousin Harley at the park.

12-21-17_7-36-09 PM.pngWASH REALLY?! RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR BED! -5pts

12-21-17_7-37-03 PM.pngWash: Yeah I think I need more coffee.

NO YOU DON’T! GO TO BED!

In real life I love coffee, coffee is life. In the sims it’s the devil’s work! Especially in an ISBI.

12-21-17_7-56-56 PM.pngHey remember last chapter when the family went to the Romance festival? This was the guy that threw petals on Ryder and then walked off.

Claire is obviously impressing him with her funny faces. Her romancing game is clearly on point.

12-21-17_7-57-19 PM.pngHis name is Phillip Bjergsen and so far Claire has learned he is Unflirty. *facepalm* This could take a while.

If you’ll notice through the door window Miko is unimpressed with her daughter’s game.

12-21-17_7-57-36 PM.pngMiko: Hey kids how’s things going?

Phillip: Your daughter is hilarious!

Claire: Mom, what are you doing?

Miko: Can’t a mother want to spend some time with her daughter and potential son in law

Phillip: What?!     Claire: MOM!

By the end of the night Claire also learned Phillip is Evil and a Loner.

12-21-17_7-59-49 PM.pngClaire: So now that we’re friends can I get a hug?

Phillip: No touching! I don’t like to be touched.

Max: Yeah, he’s going to live a lonely life.

12-21-17_8-12-39 PM.pngAt work Claire hatches a plan…

12-21-17_8-23-18 PM.png Claire also gets a promotion. Let’s see if her plan with Philip will be just as successful.

12-21-17_8-28-00 PM.pngThough Phillip is unflirty he actually asked Claire out on a date. Go figure.

12-21-17_8-29-07 PM.pngClaire: Hey I just made this…drink at work. It’s supposed to boost…um…confidence.

Phillip: I could use a bit of confidence.

12-21-17_8-29-13 PM.pngPhillip: Well here goes nothing.

12-21-17_8-33-47 PM.pngThese two had their first kiss in a bathroom. Classy.

Claire: Hey you wanna get out of here and come back to my place?

12-21-17_8-42-26 PM.pngYep Phillip definitely got a confidence boost all right….

12-21-17_8-42-40 PM.pngMiko: That’s my girl!

Yeah not creepy at all Miko.

12-21-17_8-42-55 PM.pngMiko: Just sticking around a little while to make sure he doesn’t wuss out at the last minute.

Miko you have gotten majorly creepy in your old age.

 

 

Claire: Is this what happens when you find out you’re pregnant? I should get pregnant more often if I get streamers!

12-21-17_9-04-10 PM.pngClaire: Hey dad, guess what? You’re going to have another grandkid!

Max: That’s great Claire. If you make it twins I’ll complete my aspiration sooner. You know I’m not getting any younger.

12-21-17_9-06-09 PM.pngClaire: Hey their boo. I have some exciting news to share.

12-21-17_9-06-16 PM.pngClaire: *squeels* We’re pregnant!

 

Phillip: I don’t remember much of last night….but hey I knocked up a lady. My dad said I would never know the love of a woman…well suck it dad!

12-21-17_9-08-13 PM.pngClaire: Let’s take a picture of this moment.

After the picture Claire went off to work.

12-21-17_9-30-56 PM.pngHowever Phillip asked Claire out on an outing after work.

Claire: Hugs?

Phillip: No!

Claire: Seriously we been much more intimate than a hug. We’re about to have a baby for Plumbob’s sake!

Needless to say Phillip spent most of the outing hiding in the bathroom while Claire talked to other sims.

12-21-17_9-53-01 AM.pngI built this in hopes that my NTH would stop mourning every five seconds, put a gate and locked it but still they mourned. I need actual walls!

12-21-17_9-53-36 PM.pngWash joins his siblings in Young Adulthood. Sorry I forgot.

12-21-17_9-59-36 PM.pngThis has not been an easy pregnancy for Claire.

12-21-17_10-04-10 PM The next day at work Claire learns that her co-worker married her cousin Dorian.

So it was here that I realized that my photos were out of order…I fixed it but there are so here are some important things that happened.

  1. Three fires happened at one party! Yes THREE -30!

  2. 12-21-17_12-45-13 PM.pngMiko had her elder birthday.
  3.                                                                                                                                                            12-21-17_12-46-44 PM.pngClaire completed a milestone +5 wich in the grand scheme of losing 30 points is not much.

Now that we’re caught up let’s get back to it.

12-21-17_10-24-43 PM.pngNo Max! Don’t leave us!

12-21-17_10-25-55 PM.pngLuckily Claire is besties with the angel of Death so Max lives to see another day!

12-21-17_10-27-01 PM.pngMax: Woah, being dead is a kick in the pants!

12-21-17_10-33-21 PM.pngMax: I’m not to kene on repeating the experience any time soon.

I used Max’s elder free action to drink a youth potion. I meant to do this before but I forgot.

12-21-17_11-02-45 PM.pngREALLY CLAIRE! -10

Claire: Oh man I’m glad you’re here Phillip!

Phillip: All this stress is giving me a headache. Time to bounce!

Claire: Wait, What?!

12-21-17_11-29-56 PM.pngSo Claire spent hours at the hospital and no birth. So I sent her home.

Lenore → Mom, Young Adult

Bailey → Girl #1, Teen

Hero → Girl #2, Child

Taliesin → Boy #1, Child

Tova → Girl #3, Toddler

Peter → Boy #2, Toddler

12-23-17_3-33-34 PM.pngPeter: Welcome back everybody! We’ve missed you!

A very eloquent toddler.

12-23-17_3-37-23 PM.pngPoor tyke is tuckered out, he couldn’t even make it to his bed a few feet away.

12-23-17_3-43-12 PM.pngHey, you know what this means! We have a success! Baby #6 is on it’s way. And then we will have a full house.

12-23-17_8-12-44 PM.pngHero working on her school project. I can’t remember if she completes this on or not.

12-23-17_8-30-17 PM.pngBailey is still working on her aspiration. She is actually doing quite well, though I find the bodybuilder aspirations one of the easier ones.

Spamed hugging the huge stuffed animal a couple of times and Peter is now maxed out in the communication skill.

01-02-18_5-00-51 PM.png And in other achievement news Chad has maxed out the Mixology skill and completed his aspiration! He is now doing the Computer Whiz aspiration.

A little makeover of the living room and dining room. I also moved the stairs over, I think this gives a better flow to the house.

01-02-18_5-08-44 PM.pngBailey doing a victory dance. She is a straight A student after all.

01-02-18_5-16-43 PM.pngPeter is hangry (hangry + angry). It does look like Lenore is reaching for his food and he’s all “Hands off you got your own bowl!”

01-02-18_5-23-59 PM.png Tova follows in her younger brother’s footsteps and maxes out her communication skill.

01-02-18_5-25-16 PM.png Bailey pretty much does school work and works on her aspiration. She does get a lovely view of the ocean though while she works.

Since Hero and Taliesin have the same aspiration they go to the park to work on them. Hero is able to complete hers and Taliesin is on his second tier.

01-02-18_6-05-35 PM.png Before Tova ages into a child here are her toddler skills.

01-02-18_6-20-32 PM.png Tova is a Music lover, just like her older siblings and she is an artistic prodigy. She actually rolled Social Butterfly, but since Hero and Taliesin are working on it I decided to haver Tova do something different.

01-02-18_6-57-04 PM.png It also happens to be Hero’s birthday.

01-02-18_7-19-43 PM.png Hero got the creative skill added to her repertoire and she wants to be a Joke Star which means she is also gregarious.

01-02-18_7-26-15 PM.pngBailey is now at her peak fitness level all she has to do is reach level 10 in fitness. However she has like 4-5 days left till she is a Young Adult so I’m not sure she will complete her aspiration before she moves out.

01-02-18_7-26-33 PM.pngShe is just so gorgeous!

Taliesin gets invited over to his friend Seji’s house. They didn’t reach BFF status but they are good friends.

01-02-18_7-39-12 PM.png When Taliesin gets back home Lenore is in labor.

01-02-18_7-48-01 PM Meet baby girl Scarlett. She is the fourth girl born to Lenore and Chad. We are almost halfway done with the girls. Come on boys you have some catching up to do!

01-02-18_7-56-10 PM.pngWe come back home to Hero working on her comedic skills.

01-02-18_10-54-43 PM.png I just love this interaction!

01-02-18_10-59-28 PM.png A father son moment.

01-02-18_11-00-54 PM.pngIt’s project time again.

01-02-18_11-04-38 PM.pngOh dear, Hero is in a mood swing. And Hey look, her notebook matches her sweater!

01-02-18_11-05-49 PM.pngSince we have to wait for Bailey to move out in order to have more babies Lenore focuses on her well being.

01-03-18_7-24-11 AM.pngCleaning together makes the familial bonds stronger.

01-03-18_7-24-32 AM.png Hero’s friend from school decides to help out with baby duty.

01-03-18_7-27-00 AM.pngTaliesin completed the castle and Hero made the robot.

01-03-18_7-36-07 AM.pngBest Friends Forever! I took this picture after they finished hugging and it looks like Taliesin is going in for a hug and Seji’s all “I don’t do hugs man”

01-03-18_7-38-29 AM.pngBailey’s pretty excited about finishing her project. It goes on display with the other projects.

01-03-18_7-47-19 AM.pngWe end this post with Scarlett’s birthday. She is a wild child.

Chapter 1.12: Passing Off The Torch

In the last chapter it was announced that Claire is to be the next TH, however since she just turned into a teen Max will be the TH for a little while longer. Winter and Elias moved out. Also Elias got married and his wife is having another man’s baby! Ryder met a possible love interest at the Romance Festival. Wash earned an A and Max got another promotion.

12-18-17_8-15-44 PM.pngMax: So Grim how do you like Reaping souls?

Grim: It pays the bills….and the benefits are killer….hahahaha…get it?

Max: *nervous laugh* Yeah I think I do.

Max decided to work from home and one of the things he had to do was introduce himself to sims in the art district. And Grim was just hangin around.

12-18-17_8-19-56 PM.pngMax went by Elias’ place and found that Lillian gave birth to a baby girl Zara Moon.

12-18-17_8-28-51 PM.pngJust a pretty picture of the moon and stars.

12-18-17_9-09-39 PM.pngAs you can see Claire is insanely neat.

Clair: What it’s Wash’s birthday! We are going to have guests over and I want the house to look presentable. We aren’t heathens you know!

Well Claire is right about one thing it is Wash’s birthday, but since we just had Claire’s birthday and Ryder’s coming up I decided to have a quite family celebration for Wash.

Miko: Yes no more children in the house!

Don’t act so happy you wish to have another baby with Max all the time!

12-18-17_9-24-33 PM.pngWash gets the Good trait and his aspiration is Vampire Family.

12-18-17_9-28-02 PM.pngOh look it’s Lillian! I forgot she was our maid. I eventually discontinue maid service though.

So I finally broke down and built a bedroom and bathroom up stairs. The bathroom is a pre-made room. These will eventually be Claire’s when she becomes TH.

12-18-17_12-03-29 PM.pngRyder actually does most of the electronic repairs around the house. I think it’s funny she won’t touch the toilets, sinks, or bathtubs when they break but she can’t live without her electronics.

Ryder: I am after all a 21 century digital girl.

12-18-17_12-23-52 PM.pngSo we finally added Ryder and Claire to the family gallery. I think I’m going to build a studio on the top floor with a gallery. Now we just need Max’s TH portrait.

It’s the weekend so everyone is skilling and Max is catching up on all of the repairs that need to be done around the house.

12-19-17_10-49-50 AM.pngMax: I sense a disturbance in the force!

I really need to be better about upgrading these appliances!

12-19-17_10-51-51 AM.pngOh hey people are over at the house!

Birthday time! First up Maureen and then Ryder cause I have plans!

12-19-17_11-14-11 AM.pngMaureen here is Self-assured, Loves the outdoors,  and is gloomy. Her aspiration is Mansion Baron.

12-19-17_11-18-23 AM.png I had Ryder and Maureen get married and that counted towards Max’s aspiration! However, after I did that I realize that since I used the mod to do that it could be considered cheating so I will minus 20 points from the score sheet instead of scrapping this family completely. Also I won’t count this towards completed Milestones.

12-19-17_11-18-55 AM.pngMax: Congratulations on your birthday and your nuptials apparently.

Ryder: Thanks dad!

12-19-17_11-20-45 AM.pngMaureen decides to join the conversation to get to know her father in law better.

After the party I had Ryder move in with Maureen and her father Akira as well as Maureen’s sister Madelyn (or is it Madison?)

Maureen’s parents are Akira Kibo and Cassandra Goth. Cassandra has passed away and Akira is an elder.

12-19-17_12-27-16 PM.pngLater that night Jude came for a visit and accosted poor Uni.

12-20-17_9-01-00 PM.pngThe next day is Max’s birthday which was a quite affair although Miko tried to make up for it.

12-20-17_9-01-46 PM.pngLookin good Max. I have to say probably the second most handsome elder I have had in my game(s). The first being Paolo.

12-20-17_9-09-45 PM.pngYep Claire is still working on her school project.

Claire: What do you mean…..

12-20-17_9-10-22 PM.pngClaire: I finished!

FINALLY!

12-20-17_9-19-52 PM.png Claire came home from school with an A! +5

12-20-17_10-02-30 PM.pngAnother party! Now aren’t you glad I had Wash and Max’s birthdays be low key. Otherwise this chapter would be flooded with parties.

12-20-17_10-03-22 PM.pngAnd of course it’s our future TH’s birthday!

12-20-17_10-04-11 PM.pngMax: Finally I can enjoy my retirement doing whatever I please!

Well you’re not retiring from your job just from being the TH.

Max: WHAT?!

12-20-17_10-09-20 PM.pngAlso at the party Rocky became an elder. Which is weird cause he should have turned into an elder when Max did considering they’re twins!

12-20-17_10-10-11 PM.png Claire’s adult trait is Goofball. And she also was able to get responsible and good manners.

12-20-17_10-13-40 PM.png I will end this chapter here with Wash failing with self-wetting, poor kid. -5

But before we end completely here are some extra bits….

Baby Boom Challenge 04

Household:

Chad− Dad, Young Adult

Lenore− Mom, Young Adult

Bailey− Girl #1, Child

Hero− Girl #2, Toddler

Taliesin− Boy #1, Baby

Welcome back! This chapter is going to be a bit long. I had enough for one chapter but not enough for two.

12-10-17_4-30-38 PM.pngBailey is still working on her Whiz Kid aspiration. She is on the last tier, she has to make 3 emotion potions and reach level 10 in the mental skill.

12-10-17_4-31-08 PM.png Here are Hero’s skills so far.

12-10-17_4-42-01 PM.pngIs baby #4 on it’s way?

12-10-17_5-03-20 PM.pngWhy yes, yes it is!

12-10-17_4-44-43 PM.pngJust a cute picture of Bailey relaxing in the tub.

12-10-17_4-58-27 PM.pngSo we were able to afford a tv and a couch.

12-10-17_4-58-52 PM.pngAnd since I recently got spa day the family now has a yoga mat and a meditation mat.

12-10-17_5-05-15 PM.pngChad downs the first youth potion this challenge.

12-10-17_5-05-31 PM.pngSince she is preggers Lenore is only able to do the greeting pose. Which I find weird because pregnant sims can box and run on the treadmill, at least up till their third trimester. Surely those activities are more strenuous than yoga!

12-10-17_5-07-07 PM.pngA lesson in movement and momentum. Brought to you by parents play with kids!

12-10-17_5-10-38 PM.pngSome mama alone time before the third baby comes.

12-10-17_5-28-54 PM.pngTaliesin is such a little charmer!

12-10-17_5-46-18 PM.pngFinally I got a toddler up to level five in a skill! I need to have Lenore do more toddler training since she already completed her first aspiration.

12-10-17_5-48-32 PM.pngCute siblings are….adorable!

12-10-17_5-50-08 PM.pngTime for Hero to join her sister in childhood!

12-10-17_6-05-35 PM.pngAnd what an adorable child she is! She is a music lover, just like dad. And her aspiration is social butterfly.

12-10-17_6-20-23 PM.png Chad is making strides in his career!

Lenore helps her daughter out with a school project. Bailey maxed out her mental skill.

12-10-17_6-37-45 PM.pngNext time on WHEN TODDLERS ATTACK!

12-10-17_6-38-00 PM.pngJust kidding all is sweetness and light!

12-10-17_7-39-36 PM.pngHero being creative. But sounding like nails on a chalkboard.

12-10-17_7-45-35 PM.png Bailey completed her aspiration! Her next aspiration is Social butterfly just cause her social skill is her next highest skill.

12-10-17_8-19-51 PM.png Kitchen upgrade.

12-10-17_8-39-47 PM.png First medicine of the challenge! I’m not really that excited about it, but Bailey wanted some medicine, and by golly I give my sims what they want! (most of the time….)

12-10-17_8-43-51 PM.png Okay you guys baby #4 is about to be here!

12-10-17_8-45-33 PM.pngMeet Baby # 4 Tova!

12-10-17_8-46-45 PM.pngHero seems pleased with the new addition to the family.

12-10-17_10-05-28 PM.pngHowever Bailey is not impressed.

12-10-17_11-00-13 PM.pngAnd since this is a challenge baby #5 is on it’s way!

12-10-17_11-02-22 PM.pngSisters 4 life!

12-10-17_11-04-09 PM.pngThese two are up to something, aren’t they?

12-10-17_11-20-40 PM.pngTime flys and soon Tova is a toddler. She is the lucky recipient of the clingy trait.

12-16-17_11-10-33 AM.pngTaliesin welcomes is little sis to toddlerhood.

12-16-17_11-17-21 AM.pngBestfriends! Hero has completed one of the tasks for social butterfly.

12-16-17_11-37-53 AM.pngTime sure does fly and soon it’s Bailey’s birthday.

12-16-17_11-55-35 AM.png This cutie patootie also received the music lover trait. Her adult aspiration is bodybuilder.

12-16-17_11-58-38 AM.pngBailey and Hero go to the gym to work on their respective aspirations.

12-16-17_11-59-51 AM.png  Hero is making friends with Darling Walsh. Darling becomes Hero’s first adult friend.

12-16-17_12-40-12 PM.pngIt’s Taliesin’s turn at being a child next.

12-16-17_12-46-34 PM.png And what a dapper young gentleman he is! His trait is neat and his aspiration is social butterfly.

12-16-17_1-13-21 PM.png I know I haven’t mentioned Chad that much this chapter. He is still around I promise, just quite busy leveling up in his mixology skill.

12-16-17_1-18-06 PM.png Chad helping Bailey with a school project.

12-16-17_1-35-35 PM.png Keep those promotions coming Chad!

12-16-17_1-38-41 PM.pngLenore in labor with baby #5

12-16-17_1-40-23 PM.pngEveryone meet baby # 5 and boy #2, Peter De Rolo!

12-16-17_7-11-50 PM.pngBailey is rather awesome, she earns an A!

12-16-17_11-42-58 PM.pngTova and Chad being awesome. 12-10-17_8-50-46 PM.pngLenore finally gets to do some actual yoga!

12-17-17_12-43-21c2a0am.pngPeter is the first child to get his father’s hair color. He received the fussy trait.

12-17-17_12-48-04 AM.pngLenore and Chad go for baby # 6, but were unsuccessful. 😦

12-17-17_12-49-44 AM.pngHero giving a big sister hug to her baby bro.

12-17-17_12-52-48 AM.png Bailey completed her first tier of the bodybuilder aspiration, and is now working on tier 2!

So that’s it for the super long chapter. I think next time I will make it shorter. Until next time happy simming!
