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. 



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.

      Lori's delete finger is up and going for the day.  Gotta delete scripture before any of her readers see it and start thinking for themselves.  Too bad for Lori, my screen grab finger is faster. 😉

      Like Toronto? There are so many great lingerie shops in the city.  My big busted BFF goes there even though Buffalo is probably closer to her place.

      No - closer to Detroit. Toronto would be great - but I'm a good four hours from there.

      The builders' site was really easy to find based on Jill's picture of them in front of the sold sign and the town they're in. If I was a public figure of any kind, however minor, I would be a lot more careful about things like that.

      Honestly, I’m surprised by the lack of Duggar boys doing construction in any of these photos. Do they or do they not build/rehab houses as a business? Were none of her family involved in this at all? If they were it seems strange to leave them out. I don’t usually buy the isolated-Jill talk, but dang!

      The cost of phone plans really varies a lot between countries. In Germany, my phone plan with a major carrier cost 20 euros per month, and it included everything (unlimited calls, texts, and more data than I ever used). If I'd gone through one of the discount providers like Aldi talk, it would have only been something like 10 euros.

      Here in the US, we're on a family plan and it's still $35 per person. My individual plan would cost upwards up $45 (easily up to $60 or $70 depending on your carrier).

      Perhaps the EU has something to do with it then. My bill was similar in Belgium.
