The last post ended with the announcement of the birth of baby Ashlyn Walker, firstborn grandchild, daughter of Madison Walker (nee Bancroft) and her husband, Paul.
We now go over to Michael and his wife, Mary. She also got pregnant very quickly. (Sims 2 doesn't allow for story progression so every household is at a different stage, Madison's siblings don't age when I don't play them).
Mary's natural hobby is Sports. So, she decided to play soccer in the backyard with Michael. It's OK to play with your spouse, just not in a competitive team.
I said in a previous post that I'd have a K name theme, in honour of Karen. It also allows for (some) kreeaytive spellings. So... welcome to the world, baby Kaleb!
When's the best time to conceive your next baby? Straight after giving birth!!
Let's pop back over to the Walkers. "Mom... you've had your babies. Let me hold my own."
Karen randomly turned up one evening, used the toilet... and left. Didn't invite her over. (I think this can happen when you've got multiple entrances to your house (this one has the main front door, and one that opened into what I consider the basement area. I've gotten rid of this door now).
Madison also conceived again. Here are Madison and Paul celebrating Ashlyn's birthday. (The bookcase is a fancy career reward, from the Education track funnily enough. I used cheats to obtain it. With most bookcases you can only read Cooking, Mechanical and Cleaning books... this offers books on all the skills. Children can read all of them, and with the skill gain rate they can easily reach level 8, where you can get a scholarship for college).
This is the "basement" underneath the main house. I converted it into a playroom for the kids. It's also got the dog bed.... I forget what the dog's called. I may have more than one pet, IDK...
Skipping a few photos... Madison's in labour again.
And... Ashlyn is joined by a little sister, Brynlee! (I thought that'd be a good fundie-style kreeaytiv name).
Looks like Ashlyn's going to grow up!
Back over to Michael's place. Mary started a fire. Whoops.
Sims are stupid. You tell them to move AWAY from the fire... they do so... and then RUN STRAIGHT BACK. You FOOLS. She didn't have a fire alarm at the time (she does now!) so she decided to take matters into her own hands.
I think Mary may be preggers again...
"We can do this now we're married... mmm, Mary, you are so beautiful and Godly!" (No dry-humping at a golf course in this game, sadly )
Mary eventually gave birth to twins Katherine and Kyle (sorry for your weirdly-spelled name, Kaleb). The house was too small for two children's rooms, so I used motherlode and moved them to a BIG house. Here are the kids in their bedrooms.
So, to summarise:
Madison is married to Paul Walker. They have two children. Ashlyn is a child and Brynlee is still a baby.
Michael is married to Mary (nee Cole). They have three children. Kaleb is a child, and twins Katherine and Kyle are toddlers.
I need to play the unmarried college siblings. I don't actually like the college aspect of Sims 2 University, it just gets tedious after a while (class, assignment, eat, sleep, bugger else to do). I've mainly been playing another custom neighbourhood recently and I haven't attached a college sub-hood to it for this reason.
