Edens Year 20: Love and Missioncations

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!

      Took me all day but I did it! Lol Tom was texting someone during most of the chat.  Cried the poor me act right off the bat. 

      Someone said the kids needed him right now  and not another mom and he said he always takes things slow. (Uh, ok?)

      Someone asked if he got Andrea a headstone yet and he said he was just happy if the kids eat everyday, he couldn’t think about that yet. Too much else to worry about-(yeah, like finding a new woman to replace Andrea.)He said he hasn’t been doing much for extra curricular activities. (smh)

      He said he was probably going to take the kids sizes off the video descriptions as they had enough clothes. 

      He’s back to crying every time he talks about Andrea. Seems like when he was sidetracked with a woman and he mentioned Andrea he didn’t seems as sad or cry. 

      Someone asked if Tom would make an amazon wishlist for the family and he said he didn’t have one as they had all they needed. 

      Someone brought up New Year’s Eve at the hotel. He said there wasn’t a lot of people There and by the time they went to bed it was only him and the kids. He said Andrea was the reason everyone went, the glue if you will that kept everyone together. 

      Two super chat donations so far. 

      Someone asked if he would ever move and he said no. Andrea was raised there, and her family came from there, and his kids were going to live there, so no he would never leave. (So I guess the kids don’t have a choice when they are older if they want to leave? I know they all say now they don’t, but way to Give them a choice Tom) 

       Hannah started crying for Asher so tom made Judah take her to Asher instead of getting up to check on her himself. She even came out where Tom Was and he said she couldn’t have her tablet but she could have Asher. He did pan over to Judah sitting on the couch with Hannah with a sippy cup Of Milk and her blanket. 

      Someone asked Tom who the buddy teams were and he didn’t know. Had to ask the older Boys. 

      Tom said Judah went to the dentist and has to get a bunch of cavities filled so braces are on hold Until Those are done. 

      Someone asked Tom what conspiracy theories he believed in. He said he had a few but youtube is a bad place To discuss them. 

      Someone brought up Jordan Peterson again. Tom thinks he’s an incredible guy. 

      Tom also does state he thinks over population isnt a problem -if anything he thinks it’s just the opposite. 

      Tom said he didn’t always agree with Andrea in everything religion wise. He said he also didn’t believe agree With everyone in church when the attended. He said if he didn’t agree with someone he wouldn’t get up and leave. he would hear them out.  He said if you did that you’d never go to church. (But hasn’t he told us before the reason they started doing  Home church was because they didn’t agree with the churches they were attending? He changes his mind on stuff all the time.)

      Tom wouldn’t mind having an Apple Watch but wouldn’t consider getting one. (In other words, someone please buy me one.)

      Some of his viewers were getting catty with each other and Tom Stood up for one woman. Said she could hold her own. Another guy spouted some religious stuff that Tom Didn’t agree with regarding end times. 

      Someone else asked if he believed in corporal punishment and he said he wouldn’t  answer that. (But he already did in a previous video.)

      Seems like every video he does goes back to religious talk. Always the same viewers that steer it in that direction too. 

      Someone asked what he would do if jehovah witnesses would come to his house? He said he likes it when the Mormons come and he thinks he must get put on a list after awhile because he can match them in their views, so they stop coming.  He said he didn’t know enough of the core tenets of the JW to be able To engage with them well. So he turns them away. 

      One of his viewers said they hadn’t gone to church in years but really enjoys Toms Bible studies because she doesn’t like listening to a self made preacher reading a chapter out of the Bible and trying to interpret it (ok, which one of us wrote that? LoL. That had to be a snarky response and he just didn’t get it-Lol)

      Oh my God! Now Tom just compared himself to Isaac Newton! Get out! Haha oh boy! 

      And now Hannah is crying again. 

      Someone just asked where Hannah Rae was! Hahaha. Ok now I know that had to be one of us. 

      Someone asked what he thought of Joel Osteen and he said he was going to let that one go by without answering (can’t say that I blame him I that one!) he said he would say he is not a fan. 

      Someone said their son was bi curious and should They try to shake the sin out of him? Tom said you should pray. 

      Hour and 47 minutes In and Hannah is crying again wanting her Asher. 

      And tom just sits there in his Recliner sighing and saying how sad and lonely he is and how the lives help him so much now that he’s not taking to anyone. And he will probably be doing them more again. What happened to wanting to concentrate on his kids and taking care of them? TOM YOU ARE AN ASSHAT SIR! 

      Same person who asked about the son being bi curious just Asked how to break it to his wife that his daughter is dating someone Muslim.  Tom caught on that they might be a troll. 

      And Tom just said he knows it makes people sad to hear Hannah crying but sometimes you just need to let the babies cry. Yeah Tom, sometimes, not every freakin’ time. Argh! 

      So he finally has Thomas go get her so he can hold her. He should have done this an hour ago. Again I say, TOM MILLS/ASSHAT! 

      He says he’s not going to obey any rules or do what other people Think is proper as far as dating is concerned. It’s between him and God. ( I feel it should be a consideration of how his children feel, and are coping).  He said he’s just trying to get through the day and make sure his kids are happy and fed then some day he will do more of what he wants.  (Does this guy even hear himself talk?) He says he doesn’t think he’s been through the 7 stages of grief yet  

      There was one viewer tonight who was really trying hard to get noticed. And she’s been on most if not all of his lives trying to get his attention. She said she’s 23 and single. Not a big stretch to think who he might be after next. And I believe her initials are someone who came here to defend him not to long ago. 

      Someone asked how they decided to homeschool. Tom Said Andrea wanted to from the very beginning and he did not but he eventually came around to her way of thinking. 

      He said he’d be doing another live soon. There was more but I was trying to listen while doing other things so I hope I didn’t miss much.

      Like every other people group the Amish have their share of bad eggs.  But I wanted to add our personal experience with the Amish.  My husband was in a terrible farm accident.  One Amish man, who did not know us, paid a driver to bring him 1.5 hours away to tell us that if the accident claimed my husband's leg (it did), he was going to be alright.  He had lost a limb himself and wanted to encourage us.  Another Amish family had several girls who offered to do our milking during my husband's recovery.  Several others stopped by the hospital and our home to visit.  Two different Beachy Amish farmers with amputations ( both from other states) came to tell us what to expect and that it would still be possible to farm.  Many sent checks to help out, many of whom do not have any extra.  It was the widow's mite.  Yes, the Amish are much more than farms, caps, homebaked goods, and horses, but sexual deviance isn't the whole story either. 

      A lot of my aunt’s surrounding neighbors are Amish. She’s lived on the same farm for decades. Some of their Amish neighbors are very helpful and good neighbors. However I have to say it’s the Amish beliefs and culture that make for such disturbing and hurtful behavior to go unchecked. I would say a lot of Amish are probably ok people. They are just stuck in a patriarchical society where it’s almost impossible to leave and abuse is encouraged to be kept secret from authorities and handled only within the church.

      Why look, Braggie is now posting about abortion. She ended it by saying it’s not a debate and no one will change her mind.

      Virtue signaling at its finest. This is a white woman who has had (to the best of our knowledge) only healthy successful pregnancies and who lives in a bubble of upper middle class ideology. She's had access to a good education and has never been poor or homeless. Her biggest struggle, having 8 kids, is of her own making. None of her children face food insecurity and I'm positive that they all own warm coats. From all appearances she has a healthy support system of family and friends.

      No one has the right to put laws on a woman's body but least of all a person like Abbie who has blissfully never seen the worst that life has to offer. So go on Abbie, pat yourself on the back for your morally superior choice, you sanctimonious insufferable bitch.

      I'm guessing this person finally learned what the Mills actually believe. Andrea joined Tom in believing really nasty things, and he isn't going to find many people who were willing to share the vile beliefs he and Andrea held. Most people are going to run far, far away when he starts talking about their beliefs.  

      ETA: There are very few women willing to mother a ton of kids, home church with Tom and share beliefs like he has. And I don't see him being able to tolerate a wife who didn't share some of those crazy beliefs.  Not even a lot of fundies are on the level of what Tom and Andrea believed. They had some really extreme beliefs and it isn't surprising that as women get to know him they bolt. 

      I think it’s because she saw Tom with his shirt off during the New Years video...
