  1. Another day, another baby in Mortonville.
  2. 11smiths.blogspot.com Amanda Smith is engaged to an older family friend named Russell Lewis Here's a discussion about the engagement in the "List of Unmarried Fundies" thread: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/17719-list-of-unmarried-fundies/?page=24
  3. So, we start off with not long left until Emily gives birth. You need the toilet a lot when pregnant! It's go time! Daniel freaks out. It's... ... a BOY! Welcome to the world, Martin Westbury-Smith! Over to the Pearsons. Eliza works on writing a new violin tune. Here's Adam as a Child. His hairdo is very similar to Mark's. Uh oh, Adam thinks it's a good idea to play with ketchup and flour... Eliza reads to her son. Hmm... Mark's gone stripy. He got a "Giggly" moodlet, so I guess the diagnosis is Gas and Giggles. No, me neither. Sim illnesses are weird. Adam sure is a helpful kid! And now it's go time for Eliza! TWINS! Eliza has the Fertile trait (from the Rewards store), so it's not entirely unexpected. And they're her first daughters, Chloe and Delilah. It's also Harvestfest! Harvestfest is a bit like Thanksgiving, in that one of the traditions is being thankful. Another tradition is "holiday gnomes"... yeah, Sims being Sims again. Gnomes appear in your house and you have to appease them. This one didn't appreciate pie. WHAT KIND OF GNOME DOESN'T LIKE PIE??? Adam going to meet his sisters. Chloe is in the pink crib and Delilah in the green one. Eliza threw a Harvestfest house party. And I was reminded that pretty much all the males in the family have the same dang shirt! L-R for the guys: Elijah, Eddie, Mark, Elliot. Eliza eating some turkey dinner. One tradition is to cook a "grand meal", with a choice of turkey, ham, fish or tofurkey. (I much prefer the Sims 3 name for veggie turkey, Tursoykey). Once you've had a plateful, you get a "dazed" moodlet called "food coma" #soaccurate Emily decided to use the bath. Ah well, Eliza had puked in Emily's toilet a couple of days earlier... Adam decided to eat some spoiled food. Bad idea. Yup, bad. Now he feels nauseous. THERE WAS A PLATE OF TURKEY THERE WHY DID YOU GO FOR SPOILED OMELETTE
  4. So the Smith family officially has more posts than the Bancrofts. As explained in a previous post, I will no longer be updating on the Bancrofts. As often happens with my posts, the title explains all. When a young Sim couple love each other very, very much... It's their FIRST Woo-Hoo! Emily may have rejected her upbringing in many ways but she still waited until marriage for sex. Going to do the pregnancy test... Yippee! She's going to be a mom! Telling the dad-to-be. He may look a little unsure, but one of Daniel's traits is Family-Oriented, so he is happy really. Hopping over to the Pearsons. Eliza decides to get cracking with #3. Benjamin, her second, is now a toddler, but I haven't got a photo. Success!! Emily plays chess, her daily task for work. Emily actually has a couple of days off work. She's feeling a bit lonely one day, so she invites Eliza over. She then went to prep some grilled cheese sandwiches. I heard the knock at the door, scrolled the camera to check Eliza was there... she'd already let herself in and was puking in the toilet. Oh dear. Aww, these two! "You're gonna be an auntie!" "Yeah, I can tell, your belly is already big!" With seasons, you can occasionally get days of "mysterious weather", where the weather can change to literally anything. Oasis Springs is a desert-type environment, so they don't get snow in winter. Well, unless it's a day of mysterious weather! In addition, this is Autumn, so doubly unusual! Side note: I'd been having a couple of graphics issues with my game. Nothing major, but enough to be slightly annoying. So I messed around with the graphics settings a bit. The trees aren't actually pink, that's just a side effect of the change in graphics. I also had edge smoothing on and now don't, but that's not as noticeable. Also, Edward is now an Elder! In Sims 4, female Sims don't age whilst pregnant, which is a bit odd. As a result of this, Emily has 8/9 days left of Young Adulthood, whilst Eliza has about 17 days left. And they were twins. Strange. Evelyn's cold weather gear is quite funky. Emily dancing. Nicole came over, so naturally Emily had to share the good news. And by that I mean baby news, not Jesus. Nicole knows about Jesus. Emily off to work. You get the option of family leave in Sims 4, but you don't have to take it. Daniel came home feeling a bit sad because he was missing family. Aww. Don't worry, you're going to be a daddy soon! Emily came home feeling a bit ill, so she took some medicine. This family believe in proper medicine and not just quackery and essential oils. Emily is in her final trimester now. I kinda hope she has a girl, who I can put in pants, and who Emily can teach that she can be anything she wants to be. I never did a proper It's Been A Year post for the Smiths, so I decided to go down memory lane and get some photos of Emily during her life so far! Nicole during her first pregnancy. I forget she used to wear that yellow outfit... Just given birth! Emily of course in the blue crib. D'awwww.... She always loved Eliza She played the part of dutiful daughter well. The love of science and knowledge began early. She worked hard at school. Her own place! And PANTS!! Pre-marital kissing!! The wedding And now impending motherhood!
  5. Screw You Patriarchy Moment #1: Emily wears pants now. Screw You Patriarchy Moment #2: Emily gets a JOB. As an ASTRONAUT. She also moved in with a guy pre-marriage. But then, I always do this, because waiting around for them to find a partner autonomously would take too long. Plus my Sims don't leave the house much except to go to school/work. She goes on a date with Daniel Westbury to the Romance Festival. They get sakura tea together. Look who turns up!! That's either Eddie or Elijah getting sakura tea; I can't tell because he's not in green or blue. Which is why I always assign my Sims a colour. Daniel's eating fruit salad for breakfast, which is normal. Emily is eating franks and beans, which is not. Maybe she's a Bro Gary follower? *gag* Screw You Patriarchy Moment #3: PRE-MARITAL KISSING Y'ALL Daniel got so excited he decided to start fishing. It does actually make sense, as being an Angling Ace is his lifetime aspiration/wish/want (I forget which one it is with Sims 4). Nicole invites Emily over to the Granite Falls National Park. They don't stay long, for some reason, by which I mean they chat for a bit and then Nicole just walks off.... RUDE. Edward invites himself over, and meets Daniel. Neither Edward nor Nicole have commented on Emily wearing jeans; perhaps they're like the Bateses in that kids stick with the style rules whilst living at home, but they can decide their own rules once they've left. After all, Emily's still fairly covered, it's not like she's wearing a crop top and hot pants. Eliza comes over. Eliza plays the violin. Edward sits alone in the background. (Loser). They go on a date to a bar. Smooching occurs. "Daniel! What are you doing??" "YIBS!" (Simlish for YES!) Quick household swap to the Pearsons. Here's little Adam as a toddler. (Eliza's first kid) Nicole and Emily go to Chez Llama. The food takes way too long to arrive so Emily leaves. I'd got a notification saying that Daniel had come home from work, and I wanted to get them married. Dun dun da dun.... dun dun da dun... hurry up guys, get to your seats! (Slight Screw The Patriarchy moment in that Emily wears quite a form-fitting dress). Not sure how well Nicole, Eliza and Mark can see from the kitchen... Eliza and Emily eat their cake on the bed. Even long after everyone's left, Eliza's still playing the violin. Female Sims don't automatically take their husband's name after marriage; I went into full edit mode (cheat) to change Eliza's name. I'm gonna have Emily keep her Smith maiden name, and give any kids the double-barrelled name of Westbury-Smith (it flows better that way round IMO). I suppose a real "fuck the patriarchy" moment would've been for Emily and Daniel not to get married, or to marry after kids, but I feel she's broken quite a few of the family rules already. After all, plenty of feminists get married.
  6. Another one where the title says everything... Eliza brings Mark over to her parents' house. Things go well. Eliza shows off her violin skill. Mark is impressed. Mark and Eliza go on a date to the Humor and Hijinks Festival in San Myshuno. Luckily they had chaperones! With the Humor and Hijinks Festival, there is a competition between "Jokesters" and "Pranksters". Mark and Eliza joined the Jokesters. (Incidentally, both Nicole and Edward became Pranksters). It's separate beds... for now. (The jug thing in the background is the reward for a Gold level date). Still in the "getting to know you" phase. It's official! They're in a courtship! Well, THAT escalated quickly...! OHMYGODYES! Mark and Eliza didn't want to waste any time! This is at Myshuno Meadows in San Myshuno. (I did set Eliza's dress to be white, but I guess the game generated a random outfit when they travelled to the venue). THE FIRST KISS! I even got a notification saying that they were sharing their very first kiss Eliza entertains the guests. You'll notice that even though Emily wears pants now, she still wears a modest formal dress. Ahem... Congrats, Eliza! "We're going to have a baby!" "Hey Grandma!" "Huh? OH!" Lunch date at new restaurant in town, Chez Llama. It serves "experimental" food dishes, such as Volcano Pasta and Free Range Sixam Pit Beast (me neither). Never forget your Bible journal. Eliza elects to have a hospital birth. For some reason, you have your baby in this weird contraption. It's a BOY! Welcome to the world, Adam Pearson!
  7. We'll start where we left off. Where's the best place to have mommy-daughter time? The bathroom, of course. "I know, Becky, our dishwasher is, like, totally broken, and Daddy should, like, totally fix it, but he's just sooooo busy being an amazing Godly husband and father." "Why am I eating standing up when there are eight free seats behind me? I am so sick of this househo- oops, gotta keep sweet. Gotta keep sweet." "Yeah yeah your music is neat, Mrs Smith, but I'm just *that* much more interested in molding this clay." "So the square root of 169 is.... wait... why is there a plate in the way?" "Don't ask me. I'm a Bear." "I mean, I just LOVE having six children, but I sometimes feel like something is missing now my blessings are all growing so fast... Lord, help me to deal with this new season of life..." "Lemme just crank this up a notch, even though such a steep gradient makes me fall down... just a reminder that God has everything under control, and if I try to change things too fast, I slip up and need to slow things down to where God would have me." "Wait... wait... what's happening? Am I older? Oh no! Will I still be able to have children? I feel like life has gone so fast..." "Oh, help... now I'm older I'm feeling much less secure. My Bible journal has always helped. Lord, I pray that you will continue to support my family and I in the coming years, I'm feeling somewhat lost right now..." "I'm so thankful that the Lord blessed me with such skill in the violin so that I am able to glorify Him in so many diverse ways." "So what if video games are a distraction and not a direct way of glorifying God? I can earn money through doing this. Blicblock is hardly going to corrupt my mind." "I bet Mommy is so proud of me, I do my Bible journal without prompting!" "So what if talking to yourself is the first sign of madness? I'm just interacting with God's creation." "I can't believe Mom let me get my own place already! I am so excited to be in this new season of life and I am so ready to have as many blessings as God will give me... but I've got to find a husband first..." "FREEDOM AT LAST! I was never much of a girly girl. God, it feels so LIBERATING to wear PANTS. I hope Mom can see that wearing pants doesn't make me any less Godly."
  8. Eliza and Emily will soon become Young Adults. So, courtship is nearly on the horizon. I decided to create a guy for one of them to court (I think I'll have him go with Eliza). So, say hi to Mark Pearson! Not the greatest picture, you can't see his face very well, but I think Eliza will find him a real cutie
  9. I haven't played them for a while. Still nothing much has happened. Eddie and Elijah having a conversation. I thought I had captured the speech bubbles but apparently not. I think they were discussing grilled cheese here. More talking. Emily doing the dishes in the back, just like a good, Godly young girl should. Elijah wants to be, erm, athletic/a bodybuilder. He's rather skinny, so he needs a bit of exercise to build some muscles. (You can't wear caps backwards a la old-style Ben Seewald, sadly). Eliza entered a mean phase, so she decided to yell at her mom for no reason. Of course, Nicole tells her off. (That orange book is what kids' homework looks like. It's not any of the Smith kids' work, it's actually from when one of the neighbour kids paid a visit, started doing homework, and then left it there. I can't move it). The family's sleeping patterns are somewhat skewed. Edward wants to have a great garden. This was in the early hours of the morning, because why not? Cleaning the shower seemed to mostly consist of spraying the dirt with cleaning fluid, no actual sponging involved. And yet the whole shower was miraculously clean!! Nicole mastered her cooking skill a while ago. This results in fancy moves. Most of which aren't exactly practical. If you're making fruit salad, surely the last thing you want to do is toss the bowl in the air...??? It can be dull stuck at home all alone. Sims love to mold clay. The eldest twins going for a jog. Emily (blue) was hacked off because she'd tried to help a classmate, but he wasn't very grateful. Eliza was jogging because it's good for her, and for her emotional control. Yet another Smith kid succumbs to the Bear phase. This time it's Elliot. Emily decides to Troll Teh Forums. "HAHAHAHA I AM MORE GODLY THAN YOUUUUU LOSERRRRRRRSSSSS!!" Nicole got wind of this and admonished her. "Look, you can't reveal our family life to others, we must maintain normality". "Elijah, honey, there is a time and a place for you to take a selfie, and now is not it." Objects tend to break fairly easily in Sims 4, and luckily Edward is a real Manly Man (TM) and gets to work repairing the toilet. "GOD'S CREE---AY---SHUNNNN IS SOOOOOO BEEE----YOOO---TI----FULLLLLLL!" Grilling shish kebabs to stick in the fridge for the family to have later. SOTDRT doesn't exactly apply in Sims 4, but the dining room still tends to be the centre of family life. Emily and Elijah doing homework. Evelyn eating a shish kebab. Elliot looking incongruous in his Purple Grape Bear outfit. And... SHOCK... Nicole doing some work. This fundie mom isn't as lazy as some others... *cough cough*
  10. As I mentioned previously, I've been mainly playing the Bancrofts, as I wanted to get Michael and Mary married. In a comment on the Married! post, I mentioned that Madison is also married! She is now a Walker. You'll get to meet husband Paul in the next post. So, the Smiths. Since you can't move teens out early like in Sims 2, life has been pretty mundane. Eliza and Emily have a week left in-game before they age up. I'll probably kick them out, so that Nicole can have a final pregnancy... since aging freezes whilst you're pregnant (which I find a pain in the ass), Edward is a fair bit older than her, when they started off the same age. I may have mentioned this already, but Eliza wants to be an awesome musician. Her main instrument is the violin. Eddie and Elijah aged up! Eddie making a slight DERP face. Eddie's a painter. He can't wait to capture God's wonderful creation! Sometimes Eliza just feels so *inspired* she starts playing in the kitchen. Carrot cake for breakfast? Whenever Nicole makes a group meal, I put any leftovers in the fridge. The family often help themselves. Although Emily's normally a conscientious student, sometimes things can be a bit last-minute. No-one's perfect, after all; we live in a fallen world. Nicole gets bored alone at home, so she goes to visit the Markhams. Becky and Callum appear to not be in school. Becky seems rather warmly dressed; they live in Oasis Springs which is a desert-y neighbourhood (the Smiths live in a more verdant area). Here's Roseanne (I realise I missed a trick by not calling her husband Dan or her other kids Darlene and DJ*. She has two sons and one daughter. The other son is Alistair). In another post I mentioned how Energised Sims tend to work out wherever they are... the kitchen isn't exactly the best environment for push ups. Nicole goes out fishing; there are some Baking recipes she cannot cook because she doesn't have any fish. She soon gets bored however and starts singing God's praises. When you all arrive home at once... you get a big blob of Sims. No wonder Eliza's looking uncomfortable here!! Emily also decides to do some woodworking. (Maybe I'll have her be a bit rebellious when she leaves home? As in... possibly (shh)... PANTS?) So, 5 pm. Edward arrives home from work... ... Eliza has just taken a shower and is taking a selfie... ... Eddie's putting a book away in the study... ... Elijah is in the bath (I forgot what Emily was doing) ... ... Evelyn is playing the piano... ... and Elliot is napping on his bed. Yo, Eliza, you have a table behind you. Why are you standing up to eat your baked potato? How can you eat it standing up? Sorry this was rather dull. Hopefully things should improve once the oldest two move out. * I haven't actually watched very much of Roseanne. My mother introduced it to me a long, long time ago and we only had Season 2 on DVD. I need to watch it more!!
  11. Not much of note has really happened with the Smiths, so I thought I'd title this post "Life Goes On", but it made me think of Ob-La-Di by the Beatles so I took the line from that instead. I mentioned previously that I'd decided to remove my CC, which means removing the girls' modest skirts. This is the skirt Evelyn is currently wearing; it shows *gasp* KNEE but it's the longest skirt I could see. I also didn't realise that the missing pyjama trousers (the only missing item, dunno how it happened) were the type Nicole was wearing. I think I'd chosen them because they were the baggiest pair I could find. So when Nicole woke up one day she was very NIKE! (This is, of course, Create-a-Sim, where I quickly gave her some new jammies). Fruit pie for breakfast? Why not? Elliot decided to go interact with the elderly. He's a little unsure about her bardot/cropped sweater, but he's only a kid. Eliza goes for a jog. Parenthood introduces five Character Values, which are important to fundies. You can raise Emotional Control by jogging to clear your mind. If you raise Character Values to the top, you'll get an associated positive trait when you age to Young Adult. (Of course, you can also lower it to the bottom and get a negative trait). Elijah visited a friends' house after school one day. He was *still* in the Bear phase, so I decided he had to wear normal clothes for this visit. (This results in a Sad moodlet). This is him chatting to Brian (forget the surname) and Callum Markham (younger brother of Becky, who was mentioned in an earlier post). "Elijah, are you EVER going to leave this Bear phase? It looks ridiculous when you're walking around dressed as a purple bear with a bunch of grapes on your front." Edward went to Hang Out at the San Myshuno park with neighbour Eric Lewis. (Gave him a makeover too; it seemed strange that everyone else was in a t-shirt and he was in a long-sleeved sweater). Edward was very intrigued by the observatory; rather strange for a fundie... Edward with a whole BOWL of animal crackers! Steve Maxwell would have an attack of the vapours Nicole's aspiration is to be a Super Parent. (I don't know if this is irony or not). Anyway, you can raise Parenting skill by doing things like disciplining your kids, helping them with homework, and so on. One of the sub-lifetime wishes is for a child to have three positive character traits (which I mentioned earlier). Sims 2 and 3 have similar systems. Like Eliza and Eddie before her, Evelyn is very creative. She loves to make music! Nicole loves baking, so she made some carrot cake! (That grimy counter top will be cleaned by one of the E-slave/sister moms kids later. "Wow! Eliza made such a beautiful volcano!" Remember what I said earlier? Edward and Nicole decided to have a date night/evening. They visited a garden in Willow Creek first. Later... the beloved fundie dip kiss! Emily and Eliza doing their preferred activities... Emily programming and Eliza about to play the violin. Here you can see their snazzy new PJs. We finish this random life post with a picture of Nicole eating some gumbo (I think? Or was it franks and beans? They look very similar in game).

    Smiths Part Four: A Catch Up

    A fair bit has happened since I last updated on the Smith family. As of my last save... NO MORE TODDLERS! All the kids are in school, and with Edward working that means Nicole gets some time to herself. Toddlers can get Angry when their needs aren't being fulfilled. Some emotions have three levels. Evelyn woke up ENRAGED one morning... she was starving, lonely and in need of fun. Poor kid. I gave Nicole another makeover. She's gone for a much more Maxwellian vibe. The t-shirt reads "It's On Us", which is a movement founded by Obama to fight against sexual assault on college campuses. Nicole doesn't know this; she just assumes it means "it's on us to convert people to the Lord". I wanted to change her out of her plain clothing and give her something patterned. I love the grilling options you can get on the barbecues. Here Nicole decides to grill some fruit for the family breakfast. Unlike *some* fundies we know, the Smiths eat relatively healthily. Sims can get ill with the addition of Get to Work, and can present with some bizarre symptoms. Googling gives either Gas and Giggles or Itchy Plumbob. I don't know quite what was afflicting Eliza, but I was able to order some medicine. This family are OK with modern medicine it seems. We have Teens! Eliza and Emily decided to go for matching outfits as per. When you send one Sim to plan an outfit in Sims 4, you can actually edit the whole family. As ever, Eliza is pink and Emily blue. Eliza is a great helpmeet-in-training! Elliot and Emily woke up early one morning and had some sweet sibling time together in the study. Emily is a Nerd Brain. I decided she should get into Programming (another Maxwell-inspired idea. Sorry Smiths). Finally! NO MORE TODDLERS PRAISE JEEBUS. Once the older kids had gone to school, Elliot and Evelyn aged up. I finally got round to giving the kids Bible journals. Here's Eliza using hers. She'd had an embarrassing day at school so was confiding all in there. Emily was feeling rather tense due to lack of fun so I sent her on a jog. This is the girls' room as it is currently. And here's the boys' room. Elijah is the latest kid to enter the Bear phase. He decided to be Avocado Bear. He's also been Pineapple and Orange Bear. Eddie getting in some early morning Bible journaling. Edward going off to work. This will be the first time since I started playing that Nicole will be all alone at home. Nicole decided to go fishing. Aaaaaaaand the peace ends. Bible journal session. Elliot took advantage of a freshly-baked plate of jammy doughnuts. Nicole took all the kids to a bake sale to volunteer. Apparently, Elijah spent the whole time in his bear costume *sigh* Eddie got ill one day so was allowed a sick day off school. And finally... Eliza decides to learn to cook. She started off with some simple Mac and Cheese.
  13. We start off with a picture of Eddie on a toddler tablet. There are five toddler skills in Sims 4, four of which can be learnt using the tablet; Communication, Imagination, Movement and Thinking (the other being Potty). I know Imagination and Thinking seem incongruous with a fundie family, but they apply to all toddlers, so... they lead to faster gains in the appropriate child skill, i.e. communication leads to child social, imagination to child creativity, movement to child motor and thinking to child mental. Babies get a trait when they age into toddlers, which again are toddler-specific. I make all the fundie toddlers Independent so they can teach themselves skills (and prefer to do so) rather than have Nicole help. (Apologies for the stink cloud. Toddlers lose Hygiene very fast. It's not a poopy diaper). Nicole's going into labour again! I think Edward (the dad) was at work at this point... he didn't go into Pre-Parental Panic until a while after he'd come home. Yeah, you missed the boat buddy. As I said before, I always age up Sims 4 babies quickly as their crying is irritating. This is little Elliot... ... and his twin sister, Evelyn! (That's Eliza in the back. The lighting's very bright in that area). Not long later, Eddie and Elijah aged up. Here's Elijah; Eddie is wearing the same outfit, but in blue. Here's the one of Eddie. With The Sims 4 Parenthood (a pack), Children can get phases. By far the most common I've had is Be a Bear. It's exactly as it sounds. The child turns into a colourful, fruit-themed bear, with five choices. Eliza went for pineapple the first time round. I decided to create another fundie family, primarily for fellowshipping purposes. This is Becky Markham; Emily decides to say hi. (Eliza looking daft in her bear costume in the back). Kiddie get-together in the girls' room. Only one missing is Elijah. Eddie, Evelyn and Elliot eating in the living room. That's all for now! Next part will be the eldest Bancroft twins (Madison and Michael) at college.

    Smiths Part Two: MOAR BAYBEEZ

    So the last time we saw the Smiths (Sims 4) they had just two kids. Surprise surprise there are MORE! We start off with a random photo. When Sims are Energized they will randomly do sit-ups or push-ups wherever they are. He then decides to go jogging. After all, fundies are often into fitness. Sims 4 Get to Work introduces the Baking skill. There are three related cooking skills: Cooking, Gourmet Cooking and Baking. You can cook recipes using the oven and the cupcake factory. Cooking covers cakes, chocolate chip cookies, cobbler and apple pie (as well as normal breakfast/lunch/dinner dishes); Gourmet Cooking covers tiered cake and cheesecake (as well as fancier breakfast/lunch/dinner dishes), and Baking covers all sorts, like muffins, breads, scones and so on. Here, Nicole is being a good helpmeet and has baked some bread. Nicole reading to the twins. Sims 4 allows toddlers to grab their own portion of whatever group meal has been made; the parent does not have to stick them in a high chair (although they are still available). This is very useful! Emily has her own portion of pancakes. Not long later.... MOAR TWINS! Here are Eddie and Elijah. It took me a while to twig that Edward and Eddie are the same name... oh well, it's a common thing to do. Eddie is blue and Elijah is green. Here they are as toddlers. Nicole has birthed two sets of twins and she's still pretty slim. I've noticed in this game that Sims tend to get a little fatter/wider after they've had a few kids, but Nicole doesn't appear to have been affected yet. Eliza and Emily grew up! Eliza is being a good little helpmeet-in-training by helping to clear up dirty dishes. Skirt is from Mod the Sims. Here's Eliza doing one of the funner jobs (/sarcasm). Nicole loves the outdoors so periodically goes outside to breathe fresh air (I know I would if I was stuck indoors with two sets of twins!) She randomly decided to start singing after harvesting a cherry tree. The Lord is SO GOOD y'all! His creation is so marvellous, you just HAVE to sing His praises! Eliza is rather creative so she's practising the violin. Emily is a Genius (yeah, doesn't really fit with the usual fundie mould) but being good at the child mental skill leads to boosts in gaining Programming etc skills later, and fundies tend to be into programming. (Obviously taking inspiration from the Maxwells here). Plus I tend to make most of my children creative so I thought genius would be a change. Preggers again! Nicole decided she would get really into working out during this pregnancy. What I don't understand is that pregnant women can use the workout machine and the running machine, yet can't go jogging around the neighbourhood... you'd think pounding a treadmill would be more vigorous. Who knows. We'll have to end here. The next blessing (or blessingS, I'm guessing this'll be twins again given the On A Ley Line lot trait) hasn't/haven't been born yet. BONUS PHOTOS! My very first Sims 4 fundie family were the Morrises (who no longer exist as I deleted the game). They had six kids. The name theme was L: Letitia, Lisa and Leyton (twins, Leyton was the only boy), Libby, Lydia and Lexi. Letitia got married to a guy called Pete Harper and had two sons, Adam and Billy. First photo: Letitia (pink) and Lisa (blue) heading to school. Second photo: Libby. Third photo: all the girls asleep in their dorm bedroom. I didn't take that many photos of them, so there are no photos of what Lydia and Lexi looked like, although I think their colours were probably yellow and red. This family was before toddlers existed (almost two years ago).
  15. Yeah, I was always going to, let's be honest... This fundie couple is Edward and Nicole Smith. They live in Oasis Springs. I used the freerealestate cheat to blag them a big house. Yes, that IS a TV, but they ONLY use it for educational purposes. You know what's coming.... time to test the bed! Sims 4 is different in that you don't hear a chime, you take a pregnancy test instead. Sadly, that first act of sweet fellowship did not result in a pregnancy. I then tried again a few hours later, nope, no pregnancy. Just before they went to bed, they decided to try for a third time... Dirty and stinky, but jubilation! The Lord has seen fit to open Nicole's womb! (This, obviously, explains the post title). In this game, you get a little bump right away. You also get to keep your normal clothes, so thankfully Nicole gets to stay nice and modest during her pregnancies. Nicole is somewhat of a musician, and decides to build some violin and piano skills while she can. They decide to set up a small playroom. I also figured that bright yellow clothing against such yellow hair was a bit much, so changed her clothing to pink. Nicole decides to keep a Bible journal. I think she was upset here, but I forget precisely why. Maybe just thinking about the Lord and His goodness gets her emotional. Edward decides that Fishing would be a good idea. He clearly finds it rather dull, so decides to search for a few motivational Bible verses. It seems like very little time before.... TWINS! Despite the masculine colour of the second crib, they are both girls. Eliza is in the pink crib and Emily in the blue. You can add Lot Traits in Sims 4. The traits for this lot are On a Ley Line (increases chance of twins), Chef's Kitchen (helps with Cooking) and Sunny Aspect, which can give an Energised or Inspired moodlet. Sims 4 offers mothers the chance to Breastfeed their babies for the first time. Nicole knows that this is the Godly way to do things. Edward originally had a Politics job, but decided he had more of a businessman bent to him and so joined that track. Here he is going to his first day. It's a relatively boring photo but Edward doesn't feature much in this post. I always Age Up Sims 4 babies ASAP as they tend to be harder to care for than Sims 3 ones as they cry more. Here are the girls, Eliza in pink and Emily in blue. Nicole knows to start the kids with the Bible early. She gets out a kid's Bible story and reads it to Eliza. Is that Edward.... DANCING?!?!?! Maybe we can have this family believe that some dancing in the privacy of your own home if it's honouring to God. IDK, fundies have weird logic. The couple get Very Flirty in order to create a good atmosphere to conceive Blessing #3. I find men's portraits for Very Flirty to look a tad weird. Looks like it was successful! Uh oh... looks like Eliza's being a tad naughty. No corporal punishment in The Sims so Nicole's going to have to rely on a firm telling off. Nicole decided to take the twins to the Spice Festival over in San Myshuno. In typical fundie style she left them alone while she went to sample some of the curry on offer. To close off this post, here are the girls hugging... and Emily creating some of her own street art.
