I began this Sims blog on January 2nd 2018. A lot has happened since then! Births, courtships, weddings, jobs, college...
Since updating my graphics drivers a while ago, Sims 2 is no longer supported by it. When I'd gone into Sims 2, the background had been flickering and dodgy, so I'm afraid that'll be the end of the Bancroft Saga.
So, what happened to the Bancrofts whilst they were still playable?
We started off with Martin and Karen.
Karen quickly gave birth to her first blessings, Madison and Michael.
Not long after, she had blessing #3, Max.
Madison and Michael got into private school. After a couple of mishaps (see link), Karen eventually had baby #4, Mason, and then her second set of twins, Matthew and Martha.
The eldest three went on what some might call a vacation to Twiikii Island with Martin.
Karen mastered Cooking.
Madison and Michael went to college.
Madison was originally in a dorm with someone who would later become *very* important to the family, Mary Cole.
Karen got pregnant, again. That's a definite baby, Karen, not just a possibility. Surely you know what WooHoo means by now?
Another one went off to college.
Babies #7 and #8 arrived, Mark and Morgan.
Karen wrote a book, "How to Keep Sweet".
Baby #9 and girl #3, Mackenzie, arrived. And was promptly left on the floor. Standard.
Baby #10, Malachi, was adopted.
The eldest six all moved into a house together.
Michael got engaged to Mary Cole.
Madison and Michael graduated, and Michael quickly got married.
Not to be outdone, Madison also got married.
The next generation arrived quickly. This is Ashlyn Walker.
Kaleb was quickly joined by Katherine and Kyle.
Max married Lily Matthews.
Martin was briefly a PlantSim.
Max and Lily adopted their first child, Jennifer, whilst Lily was also pregnant with the first biological child.
Madison had babies #3 and #4, Carson and Daxton.
We had a bathroom baby! Lily having baby Ryan.
Mary made it ten grandkids with her fourth, Kaylee.
Max and Lily adopted another son, Christopher. Madison was also pregnant with #5.
