With that title, I think y'all can guess what happens here!!
We start off briefly in Madison's place in college. She decided to invite her brother and his friends over. Ever the young Godly helpmeet, Madison makes the food.
Madison maxed her Creativity! Selling paintings is a good way of making money for young fundie Sim women who won't get jobs.
***NIKE ALERT!*** Madison was on the toilet and... erm... WTF ARE YOU DOING MAX???
Originally, Madison, Mary and Lottie shared a room. I eventually changed it so they each had a room. Here's Madison doing an assignment. I decided that even though she won't get a job, it's worth her doing well anyway.
Madison is also good at the mechanical skill, which came in handy when the stereo broke.
I briefly installed a little hot spring in the garden. Madison decided to use it, before planting a garden. This is the most modest swimsuit there is.
Back to the main compound now...
Sometimes, for no reason, adults "lecture" babies. I thought this sounded like rather a fundie thing to do...
Mason dancing. The Bancrofts are OK with it, as it's "glorifying God".
... is that a GREEN Sim one of the kids brought home from school? I decided to go into debug mode in CAS for one family and made a family of aliens. This is Tycho Williams. The other kid is Lakshmi Singh.
Mason made a snowman... sadly it was a DEVIL snowman! (I deleted it immediately).
Mason turned into a teenager. As happens in the family, he quickly went to college. Karen also quickly got pregnant with #9 after giving birth to Mark and Morgan. This is her going to collect her novel... "How to Keep Sweet". The icon above her head is a memory being formed; it was a best-seller! Clearly there are more fundies in Sapphire Springs and the rest of Sim City than I thought...
I managed to get a shot of Karen about to go into labour.
Baby #9 and... GIRL #3!!! Welcome to the family, Mackenzie. Lying on the floor, wondering what on earth you're doing, is par for the course in this family.
At some point, I used the maxmotives cheats again to keep them all permanently happy. I figured it was God (well, me) rewarding them for having nine children.
Martin and Karen were nearing the Elder life stage. Seeing as they had a baby in the house (plus another coming), I decided to get them the Elixir of Life to extend their lifespan a bit. Again this is a reward from God... (photo in a bit)
Martha and Matthew were now Teens. Martha was in PANTS when she aged up, but thankfully there was a nice modest outfit waiting for her in the shared family wardrobe.
Matthew changed into some weird all-black outfit with a long coat. I haven't changed it yet. He maxed his Mechanical skill. I was wondering why he couldn't play the piano anymore... turned out it needed tuning, and Children can't tune pianos.
Here's Martin using the Elixir of Life. Karen had used it first.
Karen and Martha had a heart-to-heart on the marital bed. Karen then felt convicted to read her Bible.
Mackenzie aged up! Her colour is purple as you can tell. Dress is from Mod the Sims.
We finish the post on a surprise photo *ahem*... here's Baby #10, Malachi! (Yep, another boy). What's the difference here, you ask? Malachi is adopted! Karen somehow guessed she was nearly at the end of her childbearing years, and suddenly felt convicted to adopt a child. After all, there are plenty of unwanted
and unsaved children in SimNation so she felt she could help out. The photo is at a weird angle... Matthew is in front of the fridge. He'd given Malachi a bottle before dumping Malachi on the floor. I couldn't see Malachi from my usual playing angle because of the counter, so I had to go for the birds'-eye view.
