Edens Year 20: Love and Missioncations

Sign in to follow this  


Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! We've now followed the Edens for two decades, and the f*n is only multiplying

As the Edens continue to expand rapidly, they rejoiced that God their pastor changed his mind about bunkbeds! They are allowed again (I found a mod that worked with the updates). Behold the truly space-efficient boys and girls dorms. 


It's a good thing there are a lot of teenagers ruling the roost now, as the littler Edens are out of control. The girls in particular really have a lot on their plates. Here, Deuteronomy does laundry while Genesis cooks, Chronicles does dishes, Ruth practices the violin, and Numbers entertains the useless boys.


Similar to the Duggars, the first five Edens have actual identities and personalities, and after that, they all run together. Also similar to the Duggars, there is a group of middle boys (with one girl in the middle, Ruth!)  who run completely amok. #7, Judges, is a particular PITA. Here he is on the left with a fellow Howler, making one of 666 messes this year. Timeouts have done little to curb his destructive tendencies, so Adam and Eva are praying for a fundie behavioral remedy. Look out Judges!


The eldest of the Howlers, #6 Joshua (not that anyone cares), became a teen this year. He was a very good, nondescript kid who became a little romantic. Guess we'll check up on you in 5 more years, Josh! 


Meanwhile, the above-16s were invited on a mission trip to scary Salvadorada with their youth group.


Exodus was delighted that the Lord laid it on Maya's heart to attend as well! They spent their first evening revisiting their baptisms swimming in the vacation home pool. Genesis was relieved that Maya at least tried to cover up her rockin' bod. 


I mean, damn, girl


Over the trip, Exodus was really attracted to Maya's COUNTENANCE and heart for working out the Lord, and they got to know each other much better. 


Exodus truly was pleased that the Lord led them to be of service in...he can't remember the country. 

Genesis enjoyed it as well. Not only was it a break from her regular duties, but also she got to see how modestly and non-sluttishly the other women there dressed. She made sure Eva shared her [Genesis'] thoughts on Facebook.


While the group was on the missioncation, Eva gave birth to #16 (a full TWO YEARS after #15!) Welcome the world, Psalm! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!


Fortunately, the teens were back in time to make birthday cakes for the twins' fourth birthday (the blondes in turquoise).  For the first time since Genesis, the Edens only had one toddler at once! They are indeed slowing down! (since the fertility decrease when Eva turned 35)


Notice I said slowing down, not stopping. 


The sweet fellowship continues, and Eva's womb hasn't quit yet! Adam and Eva are the only ones who still seem surprised that yet another blessing is on the way!


Ok but back to the teens we really care about. At the end of 2029, Exodus was turning 18 (Genesis is already a legal adult I guess, but with no romantic prospects in sight she may as well be 14 to her parents). He and his parents thought he was ready to enter the next season of life. So he invited Maya to the art museum...

"Doesn't this painting of the outdoors remind you of when were outdoors helping those poor people in...Albuquerque?"


gave her a rose...


and asked her to enter into a courtship relationship with him. She said yes!


How exciting! No word yet on how the rest of the family feels about her pants and short hair, but Exodus thinks she is fiiiiiine inherwalkwithChrist. 

So there you have it. We go into a new decade with baby 16 and one more in the oven, a missioncation, a courtposal, and everyone growing up! Until next time, Edens out!

This is great! Gosh it just makes me want to dig out my old copy of I think Sims 2, or maybe 3. Ahhh the memories. Hats off to you,  I struggled with just 3 sim  kids.

Do it!! It's definitely a (fun) challenge. I really struggled too with the number of kids, so much it became not fun anymore. So I stopped for a while. Now I've decided to just let them do everything except off themselves! I really only pay attention to the parents the oldest/youngest kids...just like fundies!

You inspired me! I hunted down my copy (Sims3) and have started playing! Starting slow with just one sim but who knows where life will take her 😁

      Does anybody remember Wes and Rachel's old blog? I forgot the URL and wanted to check wether it was still there. She had a lot of house pictures there IIRC.

      The blog name was Weslea (I think Rachel's middle name is Lea like her dear mother's, too) but I did a super quick search and couldn't find it anymore. Maybe it's still out there somewhere.

      In these times, I don't get why Joy is hanging out with Carlin (and whoever that family was they hung out with a few days ago per instagram). Pregnancy weakens the body's immune system, meaning a potentially harder time if she get covid, plus coronavirus increases the risks of preterm birth. 

      Joy doesn't exactly have a stellar track record when it comes to pregnancy and birth (not saying the second one was her fault), so if I was her, I would take all the precautions. 

      So dumb. 

      Oh wow. Here pregnant women are still considered low risk and I haven’t heard anything of the preterm labour issue? Do you have any sources you could share? I would be very interested. It is always interesting what hits the news in different countries in terms of risk assessment, as some report things others don’t.
      The only positive thing I see, is that Joy doesn’t seem to be too worried. My experience with miscarries is, that pregnancies loose the pure joy moment because the worry about a miscarriage is always there. Every little sign can make go nuts and throw you back into fears. If she can enjoy her pregnancy with less of this, I am very happy for her. Still, I wouldn’t do it but I think people are free to make their own decisions within the legal guidelines. I think having a more high intense physical (and therefore dangerous) hobby is very irresponsible to your partner and children but obviously I cannot call these people dumb (even if I think so).

      Remind me again: what do we know about Mr. Addie? I only remember that he is considerably younger than her (I always thought she would end up with an older man) and way too into guns.

    • just_ordinary


      That is so interesting. I wouldn’t have batted an eye at the photo, because he clearly is wearing a mask. Our playgrounds are open for weeks now and as nurseries, schools and kindergartens are going slowly back to normal operations is clear, that masks are not possible at all the time and for the really young ones just impossible. We can meet up in groups up to ten people again and for now, things look great. I think allowing flights for holidays again is a mistake but maybe I am proven wrong. 

      With the different rules we all have, we should really research what we are seeing before judging. That said, I can totally see them doing whatever they want- because Jesus is clearly protecting them and the whole thing is a hoax anyway or whatever.

      Also of interest perhaps -Robert and Kendalyn have been visiting the Staddon family home in WV for July 4th.

      There's a photoshoot by James Staddon on Lenspiration which features the 5 kids.

      I didn't realise it before but Kendalyn looks so much like her mother! Her make up and hairstyle has always made her look older than she is. Despite of her and Robert's crappy courtship story they always look genuinely happy together, and Robert seems to be a hands on father.
