Blessed Beyond Measure

It was the morning after their wedding, and Danny-Joe and Melissa were ready to move into their new home.

They weren't sure they had the hang of this kissing thing yet, but they were determined to get as much practice as possible...

First things first... sweet, sweet fellowship.

Melissa was excited to take a pregnancy test, but with only $4 in their bank account, she knew they couldn't afford it yet. Danny-Joe realized he needed to start providing, and went out in search of collectibles behind his neighbor's property.

With the income from Danny-Joe's collecting, Melissa could finally afford a pregnancy test.

It was positive! Off she went to share the joyous news with her sweet husband...

He was overjoyed! Melissa was starting to feel nauseated, though, so she headed home. Danny-Joe decided to try his hand at fishing to see if he could provide for his family that way...

Impatient with the fish, he decided to look for rare frogs instead...

And then he was tempted by another dig site...

Bonanza! Danny-Joe couldn't believe those secular fools who got "jobs" when there were such riches for the taking in the natural world.

Meanwhile, back at home, Melissa tested her cooking skills by preparing Danny-Joe's favorite meal -- grilled cheese.

She practiced gazing at him with adoration while he talked...

They set aside an hour for Bible Time...

They slept soundly, dreaming of God's kingdom.

The days passed in a blur. Melissa burned breakfast...

She realized with horror that her water had broken at the dinner table...

Danny-Joe wasn't sure what to expect as labor progressed...

Social Services provided a bassinet...

The miracle of life!

But one bassinet wasn't enough, because Danny-Joe and Melissa had been blessed beyond measure with twins!

They named their tiny future Christian soldiers Aaron and Abel. Danny-Joe hadn't made enough money to furnish a nursery yet, but the children could stay in the living room for now.

-Hilarious-! Now I really want to dust off my Sims game and give this a go (but I know it would be a huge time sink that I can't afford right now).

Thanks @EyeQueue :D Time sink it is, but I figured that having to document things would slow me down... trying not to binge.

Love it! Is this Sims 3?

Nope! This is 4. I miss some things about 3 (mostly toddlers and the towns/townies) but 4 plays so much better on Mac that I've stuck with it.

I haven't played the Sims in forever. I've only ever played 1 and 2. I am old. Ha!

My sims ran out of beds and one was sleeping outside and almost froze to death. I'm a mess.

Uh oh! How big is your household so far?

You must be running 3 with Seasons. I miss the bunk beds and sleeping bags from Generations :(

Yes I have 3 with all the expansions. I can't afford 4 and I would probably miss not having a "fully loaded" game. I'm up to 9 kids so far.

I have (and love) 3, but it runs so erratically on my Mac that I uninstalled it when 4 ran so well. I reinstalled just the base game and tried 3 again, but still a pain. But I miss toddlers so much :( And Twallan's mods.

Danny-Joe and Melissa had their 3rd and she's pregnant with their 4th now. I think I'll probably cave and mod eventually so that I can have a bigger household.

3 is quite brutal but since I can't afford 4 I play it anyway. I also still have 2 so I have some options.
