Edens Year 16: The One in Which A Lot Happens (Like, a Lot)

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! This one's a doozy. So much happened!

Let's start off slow. In March, Romano Tobias Johnson turned 4 years old! Elsie threw a birthday party over at her house with some of her favorite Edens. She made tator tot casserole, naturally, and made sure not to defraud her cousins by offering any alcoholic drinks or f*n of any kind.

Still, there was birthday cake, and after blowing out the candles...

Romano aged into a handsome little school-aged boy!

Speaking of, Elsie decided to enroll Romano into a private Christian school! She's doing alright financially now, and thinks maybe socialization with other kids (Christian of course) may not be a bad thing for little Romano. Plus, she can always withdraw him if Satan begins to build a fortress in his heart. 

Look at his enriched life! You go Elsie and Romano!

Back with the Edens, Leviticus (now age 12) decides to host another youth group meeting. But Maya (left, age 15) and Billie (right, age 14) are growing up too! (And still wearing those damn pants! Haven't they listened to a word he said?)

Levi is so nervous around the pretty girls that he ignores them entirely. Exodus (age 13) wipes his sweaty hands on his jeans. Then Maya up and grills burgers, which completely emasculates him.

"So, er, do you like...Jesus?" BECOOLBECOOLBECOOL Billie, by the way, isn't having any of it and keeps shooting Maya looks saying she can't believe they're still entertaining these fools. They leave, unsaved.

Another year, another birthday cake for Genesis to make. This time it's for Kings (#10).

He transitions from a clingy toddler into a rather gloomy (though also rather well-dressed) kid.

And of course, the young Edens make so many sweet and precious memories doing jinder-approved activities in the backyard. #family

And against all odds, Maya found Exodus' awkwardness endearing and they become friends cellular prayer partners.

But wait, there's more!

Heavily pregnant Eva feels the Lord laid it on her heart to write her latest tear-jerking memoir, "In the Valley - My Journey with Infertility." She hopes her struggle and testimony to conceive #13 can be a real blessing to those couples praying to be parents. What a heart for the barren Eva has! (Also notice #12, Ezra, no longer a baby but a toddler. No one knows a thing about him.)

The 4 hampers and 2 washing machines are completely overrun at this point and laundry piles up around the house. Even the boys are conscripted into laundry duty. It's a bleak day for the Edens.

Also, in a truly harrowing moment of kids homeschooling themselves, the science table burst into flames! This makes fire #4 for the Edens, but the first in a very long time. Everyone runs around like mad, and it is 14-year-old Genesis who saves the day! Adam, the patriarch, was stunningly useless. This girl is truly amazing. 2142421807_01-13-19_9-09-40PM.thumb.png.19165a99808343a8f8085f40734edd97.png

During all the chaos, Leviticus turns 13! Genesis was upgraded to sister-mom at 11, Exodus had to start repairing things and minding littles at 12, but #3 Leviticus got to wait until actual age 13 to be "upgraded". He was still pretty bummed though. Cheer up, Levi! Think about all the souls you will pester/deeply vex/enrage win!1344081691_01-14-19_9-07-04PM.thumb.png.23051f3e0de9dd059088e03705dee49d.png

And finally, in December of 2025, Eva went into labor with long-awaited #13...

AND 14?!?!?!?!

Surprise TWINS!!! Welcome to world, Nehemiah and Esther! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you! Clearly Eva is blessed beyond measure with her double-womb opening! After all, God wouldn't give her more than she could handle.

Right???

Until next time, Edens out!

Ooh, twins! My sets of twins (Eliza/Emily, Eddie/Elijah, Evelyn/Elliot) were because of the “On a Ley Line” lot trait. No unexpected sets! The Sims 3 multiples were because of the Fertility Treatment lifetime reward. 

I like how gender-balanced the Taylors and Smiths ended up. Four boys and four girls for the Taylors, three boys and three girls for the Smiths.

I am using a mod to control sex of baby in utero to keep up with my books of bible naming theme, and I think I may have accidentally added a baby instead of changed the sex, but I didn't do it on purpose and I can't say for sure, so while I don't think Eva will have any more twins (not on Leyline), its possible it just happened! She is just SO blessed.

      My family tradition seems to be being pregnant at your wedding - at least, on my mom's side.

      It's interesting to see the family size get smaller! The Duggars are the opposite...

      @baldricks_turnipthought I was the only one up. "An anxious and closed off person," for describing Jana. I've been thinking the same thing for years! If she really sincerely wants to be married...I hope it happens before her youngest sisters become old enough for courtship. Those girls are like her children. We already have Justin, who in my opinion looks like he's in 8th grade. Watching siblings you've helped raise get married has got to be horribly tough. Jana can smile all she wants, I'm not buying it. I'm glad she has hobbies and other distractions to keep her busy.

      I also wonder if she's not really honest with herself about what she really wants, or self-aware enough. Like she starts 'getting to know' someone but doesn't find herself getting all gooey over him like she observed with her courting sisters, so she decides he just isn't the one/she's being picky/he's not the one God has planned for her, but maybe no one would make her feel that way?

      (Standard disclaimer that I'm just armchair analysing someone from TV)

      The reason liquor stores are considered essential businesses during emergencies is so that the healthcare system isn’t overwhelmed by active alcoholics forced into a sudden detox.

      (My guess is that everyone here knows this, but I have had to explain it to people who were better educated and more intellectually curious than that preacher, so just in case?)
