Stephen and Sakura Ambrose... A Building/Werewolf challenge

edited June 2 in Stories and Legacies
Edited to add that I originally posted this challenge in the What happened in your game today thread and decided to put all of the updates in one spot.

I started things out as a challenge to force me to use the create a style option in buy/build mode. With all the years I have played Sims 3 I had never fully taken advantage of that option. As a subchallenge I also wanted to (since I had recently gotten Supernatural) explore everything werewolves were able to do. After I was mostly content with the house the main focus of the challenge switched to working on Stephen and Sakura's LTW But, the restrictions on making money stay in place.

Stephen and Sakura are started out on an empty lot in Riverview. Using buydebug I bought them a tent to sleep in. They also have a grill, the least expensive fridge (I had to add the fridge later because I learned that on a home lot sims cannot use a grill unless there is a fridge.), 2 sleeping bags, the least expensive table with 2 of the cheapest chairs, a bookcase (That only has Handiness, Cooking and Logic books) an Art Easel, and a guitar. After the lot was set up their Family funds were set to $100.

For the building I am only allowing the use of wall and floor coverings that cost nothing. To have a variety I can use create a style to change patterns.

This is my beginning selection of patterns. There are already a few different colors of the patterns available.

I was a nice simgod and allowed them to start off with a full bathroom as well.

This is what their lot looked like before I had changed the siding and added the fridge.

32768841692_18526d456c_c.jpg

These only ways Stephen and Sakura can earn money.
1) By selling things they find while hunting/ dumpster diving. (Each sim can only search each dumpster once per day)
2) By selling things they harvest on public lots. Such as Honey and flowers, NO produce
3) Selling any gems, metals, bugs or small animals they find. Tiberium must be sold in it's uncut form.
4) Painting and later once they can afford a laptop by writing.(For future challenges they will only be able to earn money this way IF painting/ writing is part of their LTW)
5) Fishing (The entire time I have played Stephen and Sakura they have never fished. So if I ever do a modified version of this challenge I will not allow them to fish.)
6) Tips from playing instruments.(For future challenges they will only be able to earn tips IF music is part of their LTW)
7) After using Family funds at the beginning to bring their money down to $100 money cheats cannot be used.

In order to raise their skills they can either read books or learn by doing. They are forbidden to use Multitabs, TVs or taking classes to up their skills. They are only allowed to become self-employed if it directly relates to their lifetime wish.

    Building/Werewolf challenge Day 1

    Starting Simoleons $100

    After being married for a few months Stephen and Sakura Ambrose decided that they needed a fresh start away from all the well wishing advice givers and do things their own way.
    They don't have much money, but there's enough for them to buy a vacant lot. Sakura is a neat freak. She told Stephen before they moved that she would sleep in a tent but if they were going to build their house from scratch, the first thing they were building was a full bathroom. So that is what they built.

    The day finally arrives for them to move. After buying a tent, an art easel and a few other supplies the Ambrose's are left with $100.

    32922404845_d0d40c6335_c.jpg

    Stephen: As soon as I get your easel set up you can can have fun painting if you want while I set up the tent and everything else.

    It doesn't take long for Stephen to set thing up. The couple spend the rest if the morning and part of the afternoon painting and reading up on the handiness skill.

    32545156930_d50ec1b282_c.jpg

    32082396034_85b5c755b3_c.jpg

    By mid afternoon, Sakura is a level 1 painter and Stephen has 1 skill point in handiness.
    Since it's summer they decide to try and cool off with the sprinkler Stephen bought on a whim.

    32545167030_bc5ae058d6_c.jpg

    Then they decide to transform and practice their fighting.

    32082425864_87cedec1c4_c.jpg

    By now it's starting to get late in the day. Stephen suggests that since they're already transformed that they try their hand at hunting.

    32771988892_eff3848734_c.jpg

    32110700503_6d9d83d96a_c.jpg

    Stephen finds a gem. Sakura finds some metal. Their hunt ended at the Elixer consignment shop across the stree from their lot. Behind the shop Stephen finds a King snake which he catches and sells. (I missed getting the shot) He also picks some flowers.

    32771982402_52e97245f6_c.jpg

    By this time they are both starving. Sakura had seen a grill they could use (The grill they have at home is useless because I neglected to give them a cheap fridge) so while she is cooking hot dogs for their dinner.

    32545185900_138d35f255_c.jpg

    Stephen decides to try dumpster diving.

    32925595395_ab2614b497_c.jpg

    They found enough stuff during the day that after selling it they were able to buy a fridge and a counter. They were also able to start putting up a couple of walls.

    32545151820_a81bbcf68f_c.jpg

    It has gotten very late so they then goto sleep.

    Building/Werewolf Challenge day 2

    Day 2 starts with Sakura fixing a breakfast of hotdogs.

    32082449714_c1262eea6f_c.jpg

    32885266346_9a0fedb1ee_c.jpg

    Since I'm not that fond of watching them eat in their werewolf form I had them change before eating.

    32915826376_9ac32e9d50_c.jpg

    Sakura gets a shower.

    32082468134_75fac79ae0_c.jpg

    While Stephen splashes in a puddle left over from the previous nights storms.

    32082406894_fa4b1cda43_c.jpg

    While it's still cool, Stephen and Sakura decide to get the dumpster diving out of the way and nap during the heat of the day.

    32772024012_06a022948c_c.jpg

    Stephen comes home to their 1st bill of $33.

    32110693713_178b2e7da0_c.jpg

    While Stephen gets his shower, Sakura cleans up the lot.

    32575706690_7eb009fbdc_c.jpg

    32831949751_206d36fd88_c.jpg

    Because they had a very successful time dumpster diving (There are 2 dumpsters I have found so far. Usually 2 items are found per dive. So that equals 4 items per sim) Stephen and Sakura stay home that night.

    After finishing their hotdogs, Stephen practices his guitar and Sakura continues to work on her painting.

    32575724170_09f8105045_c.jpg

    32915808326_e1ce4331cc_c.jpg

    They kept the rug and stereo they found while dumpster diving and sold the trash compactor, butterfly, light, and towel they found. They also sell the sprinkler (It didn't do anything to keep them cool :( ) and the grill.

    With the money they earned. Stephen expands the space for their kitchen a little. Sakura saw a stove she liked, so they purchase that along with an overhead light so she can see what she is doing while she cooks.

    32141919753_76e567e3f2_c.jpg

    With that they call it a night.

    Sakura has the neat trait so, the fact that the sink and the toilet became dirty at the same time was too much for her to handle. She tried her best to stay human but the Feral wolf in her took over and caused her to change.

    32833937451_e7f0a0b3e9_c.jpg

    After they get the bathroom cleaned Stephen transforms as well and the pair start their daily hunt.

    32577726050_ce5f8cb80d_c.jpg

    32143982633_f26c52200d_c.jpg

    32143978463_4df31c200b_c.jpg

    While at the elixer consignment shop Stephen hears that a new Prism Art Studio opened up and he might be able to smelt the ores he found there. Once the duo arrives, Stephen sees and befriends a falcon.

    32804587222_76f0d35dee_c.jpg

    Since they are barely getting by, Stephen finds a nice home for the bird. The family there give him $800.

    Stephen then gets to work smelting the ore.

    32833885451_b38d125572_c.jpg

    Sakura decided to start working on a small painting in the air conditioned studio. While she finished up Stephen practiced his guitar.

    32143994093_aa9ceb5d70_c.jpg

    She was able to sell he painting for $5.

    32804555752_1ca708ff66_c.jpg

    Upon returning home, the couple transform, eat dinner, then have some good clean fun. ;)

    32833943851_89cc4d3f89_c.jpg

    32115179724_12c3219a04_c.jpg

    After the shower woohoo Sakura wanted to practice fighting and they had transformed before I had a chance to stop them. Instead of allowing them to fight I sent Stephen across the street to place the cut gems and smelted metals they found on consignment.

    32143998563_b3d6627202_c.jpg

    Sakura managed to finish the large painting she had been working on and sold it for $30.

    32143990983_f74781feff_c.jpg

    Before they went home, Stephen and Sakura had also gone dumpster diving (Aren't you glad I saved you from those pics??? :P) So with the money they got from selling the bird and the items found in the dumpster, Stephen and Sakura finished their kitchen.

    Sakura is the first to wake up on day 4. She feels lucky today.
    32825627772_8c303fc909_c.jpg

    She starts things off with leftover hotdogs so they won't goto waste.
    32825624732_f7a4038d47_c.jpg

    After finishing breakfast Sakura and Stephen decide to get their dumpster diving out of the way. (Hoping that Sakura is right about this being her lucky day)
    32165535653_8e2fef2584_c.jpg

    Sakura found: Water beetle, alarm clock, Moth, and a Mission chair worth $500

    32165540593_1879e92e98_c.jpg
    Stephen found: Wall clock, Utensel holder, Blood stone, and a bookcase worth $545

    They head home, shower and Sakura starts another painting while Stephen reads a handiness book.

    32165498443_d9048ca5d2_c.jpg

    32825591022_af8808e031_c.jpg

    A little later, Stephen and Sakura head across the street to the consignment shop. Sakura pick some valuable flowers while Stephen uses the gem cutter on the bloodstone. Then he decides to gather some honey.

    I missed seeing Stephen smoking the hive and when I checked on him this is what I saw.

    32165493183_85df4189e8_c.jpg

    He then went through a feral change of his own.

    32980292225_aef019e0f7_c.jpg

    This is how a werewolf gathers honey
    32939088266_5252c3bf86_c.jpg

    Sakura transforms and the pair start their hunt.

    32165515033_59c6d36097_c.jpg

    I neglected to write down what they found during the hunt but, I think it was more gems. Stephen places the items on consignment then they both go home.

    The flowers, and the remaining items they found dumpster diving are sold. Because Sakura had rolled a wish for a dishwasher I buy them one. I am also able to complete a small room and buy a bed so that they don't have to sleep outside anymore.

    Day 5 starts off with Stephen fixing Dana Reeve's television.

    32182926093_9539b85bb9_c.jpg

    While Stephen returns the tv, Sakura makes pancakes for breakfast.

    32616306020_7bfee4a28b_c.jpg

    32843002362_f7b8a92252_c.jpg

    Dana gives Stephen $500 for fixing his tv. (Which made me laugh because that TV model is $500 for a brand new one.

    32616295060_267e7e0939_c.jpg

    Stephen returns home and they eat breakfast.

    32998345275_2559186218_c.jpg

    Sakura pays their second bill of $52.

    32939139656_f43ea583ec_c.jpg

    Since today is Leisure day Stephen and Sakura decide to spend the day at the festival.
    They spend the day skating, picking flowers (which they sell), setting off fireworks and Sakura wins the hot dog eating contest.

    32956522046_294a926b1b_c.jpg

    Stephen was waiting for Sakura and a few others to show up for a water balloon fight when the full moon rose. (I didn't get pics of them transforming)Seeing Stephen transform must have been too much for Clayton Hogue because he fainted.

    32956598446_87032d9b99_c.jpg

    When I checked on Sakura I saw that Hunter Cotteneye was in her que to slap her. I decided not to cancel it but to have her fight him after the slap.

    32998248325_7a720aba70_c.jpg

    When I clicked on Hunter I saw that Sakura had the option to give him the werewolf curse.

    32872502471_e9d305bf1b_c.jpg

    A message popped up saying that she successfully gave Hunter the werewolf curse. Serves him right for being mean to my sim. >:)

    Stephen wanted to eat a snowcone. Even though they were very tired I let him eat one then sent them home for the night.

    32843089482_a1d45bf937_c.jpg

    While Stephen and Sakura slept zombies loitered outside their house.
    33020446195_39d67ed44f_c.jpg

    Around 5:30am Sakura woke up hungry. The full moon was still up so she had to eat her leftover pancakes in wolf form. :( Then I sent her back to bed until a decent hour.
    32205176093_70daa73757_c.jpg

    Stephen woke up feeling lucky. He transformed, ate then went off for the daily dumpster dive. It started raining and hailing while he was out. (I don't know if you'll be able to see that in some of the later pics.)

    Sakura had been given an opportunity by the Doo Peas Corporation to view the art gallery there. In exchange she would get a boost to her painting skill and her next painting would be worth more.

    32205158953_09a037ce22_c.jpg

    After she finishes at the Doo Peas Corp., Sakura gets her dumpster diving out of the way.

    32978713866_22803be1cc_c.jpg

    While Sakura is doing her thing Stephen finishes getting all stinky and heads home. After finishing his shower, Stephen reads up more on the handiness skill and brings his handiness level up to 3.

    32205148303_8be2e5cfc7_c.jpg

    He then decides to surprise Sakura and starts upgrading the sink to self-cleaning.

    33020392955_4fa0c93bcb_c.jpg

    On her way home Sakura spots some bugs and decides to catch them. They turn out to be Japanese Beetles.

    32638305650_271121c35e_c.jpg

    While all of this is going on I figured out how I wanted to upgrade their house. I expanded the kitchen area, bought them a better stove and toilet (sold the old ones) added another counter added a kitchen sink and change the look of the counters, dishwasher, and stove.

    32894083551_67367c5772_c.jpg

    I also brought Sakura's easel inside so she wouldn't have to paint in the rain.

    Here is another angle of the house.
    32638284930_b68701a160_c.jpg

    After finishing the upgrade on the sink Stephen gives his love a kiss before she heads across the street to the consignment shop to hand over a few gems I forgot to have them place on consignment the day before.

    Stephen is the first to wake up this morning. After a quick breakfast, he heads off for the morning dumpster dive.

    Stephen heads home after he's finished. When I check on him he has already gotten his shower and has started working on his guitar skill.

    32638493820_07da4e1043_c.jpg

    Instead I have him work on making their dishwasher run silently. (I was surprised he actually used a wrench instead of pounding it with the ever present hammer lol)

    32205301243_72b1006232_c.jpg

    Sakura returns home gets her shower then starts working on her painting while Stephen is finishing up the dishwasher upgrade.

    32638481020_070b9d8e6a_c.jpg

    When he is done they transform, nuzzle each other then start hunting.

    They return home. Sakura goes to bed and Stephen starts the upgrade on the toilet.

    But soon heads to bed himself.

    Stephen got up a little later that Sakura. He starts out after she finished with the first dumpster. While she is searching the second one he is at the dumpster by the diner.

    By the look on his face I'm sure Stephen is thinking "I can't believe the Sim god is making me do this again. :( Ugh"

    After Stephen gets his head out of the trash he notices that Hunter Cotteneye is there. He decides to introduce himself. (Making sure NOT to mention that his wife is the reason Hunter is a werewolf.)

    We learn that Hunter is Neurotic, Mean Spirited and a loner.
    After talking a bit they show off their teeth to each other then Stephen heads off to the other dumpster.

    After Stephen finishes his shower, Sakura transforms and they start hunting.

    hunting results
    Sakura found Supernovium and Gold. Stephen found Iron

    It had started raining while they were hunting and Sakura decided she wanted to splash in the puddle when they returned home.

    Since Sakura ws almost finished with her painting I have her finish it before
    going to bed. The painting was worth $91.

    Expanded the kitchen, bought a better fridge and another counter. I also added a door and 2 windows to the room I added yesterday. They also have a sidewalk going to their mailbox and trash can.

    Another set of bills arrive and Sakura goes out in her jammies to pay the $79.

    32933057921_1b2108db5f_c.jpg

    Stephen and Sakura then head out for the daily dumpster dive.

    Sakura finishes first. She heads home takes a shower and starts working on a small painting. Since it had started raining while they were out I let her continue working until it is finished. She then sells it for $24.

    32933049071_7a6f8c7bd0_c.jpg

    Sakura then starts reading her cooking book.

    32933044831_e3e39f7fd4_c.jpg

    While Sakura is doing her thing, Stephen came home and cleaned up. I then sent him to the art studio to smelt the metal they found the day before. While Stephen is playing his guitar I notice there is another dumpster there.

    32677503640_9f326dc487_c.jpg

    So the sim god sends him to check it out.

    The Supernoviom found by Sakura the day before was worth alot more than I had expected once it was smelted down. After much thought I decided to go ahead and let Stephen place it on consignment with the other items. He then goes home, showers and goes to sleep.

    Day 10 starts with thunderstorms, an empty fridge and Sakura making pancakes.

    33076139785_fe49a0a011_c.jpg

    While waiting for breakfast Stephen starts to make the shower self cleaning.

    32949186111_0462f0de7d_c.jpg

    After breakfast Sakura starts a new painting while Stephen goes back to upgrading the shower.

    32230628774_73ef2d94e2_c.jpg

    Sakura receives an opportunity to enter a dish in the local cooking competion at the Bistro. Here she is trying her hand at autumn salad

    33076121605_4c035fdea6_c.jpg

    Before I get the chance to see what the quality was she starts cleaning the counter. (Silly wolf girl don't you know I'm trying to get you guys some extra money on this rainy day???)

    32230623884_78f9282d51_c.jpg

    The salad was only Normal quality so instead I had her enter the leftover strawberry pancakes which were very nice quality. She wins $200

    33076109655_800d0f314b_c.jpg

    When she returns, Sakura continues working on her painting and Stephen, having finished the shower starts playing his guitar. (He must still be pretty bad because Sakura does not get the good music moodlet. LOL)

    33034319536_063847fc4d_c.jpg

    Not sure which one clogged the toilet but they were both thinking about it while they practiced their fighting.

    32694076990_5be28c9c61_c.jpg

    After Stephen fixes the toilet I notice that both of their social meters are way down soooooo.....

    Dancing

    Becomes smooching

    33034309826_0772e7c7d8_c.jpg

    Then another type of dancing

    They goto sleep happy.

    32694059410_8229ef31b2_c.jpg

    At some point during the day a notice popped up saying that the Supernovium Ingot sold on consignment for $11,432. So while they slept I worked on their expansion.
    I added a second floor with a bedroom and a deck. I turned their old bedroom into a laundry. Bought them a dresser and a trash compactor.

    I had forgot to mention that Sakura had gotten the Observant LTR on day 10.

    Our couple wakes up to thunderstorms on day 11. After eating Stephen calls Jody Casper. He was given an opportunity to convince her that modern technology is great. By doing so Stephen earned $250.

    32248759994_455f911a5c_c.jpg

    Once he finishes the phone call, and because the weather is getting colder, I send Stephen upstairs to plan a new everyday outfit.

    32938278902_c988b732a8_c.jpg

    32938273842_5f39e1c745_c.jpg

    He then starts practicing his guitar.

    32938269352_db4509947e_c.jpg

    Then it's Sakura's turn for a wardrobe makeover.

    32967317151_bcef2f4ca7_c.jpg

    Thanks to @Charlottesmom Sakura also gets a pretty new formal dress. I also changed her formal hairstyle. (The other one didn't work with this dress)

    33052606456_b0be7d58b5_c.jpg

    33052603886_00367849d7_c.jpg

    It stopped raining for a bit so it's time for the daily dumpster dive.

    They get their showers once return home. Just about the time Stephen finishes his shower, Sakura gets sick. (because of dumpster diving. No baby yet)

    33094254975_efd63bac11_c.jpg

    After that Stephen decides to test out their new washer and dryer.

    32967285791_3c9f6d3296_c.jpg

    I remember that they have 1 more dumpster to explore so off to the Art Studio they go. As I am searching for the dumpster, I notice a certain Miss Simovitch is there.

    32712265840_e579ee625d_c.jpg

    I have Stephen introduce himself before he gets all stinky.

    Stephen left his dirty dishes out the night before so Sakura had to eat her breakfast next to a stinky dish.

    32753945010_1290ba6fb2_c.jpg

    Sakura wanted to finish the painting she was working on before they went to the spooky day festivities.

    32979859282_e68bf20771_c.jpg

    While she worked on the painting, Stephen paid the bills of $183 and worked on his guitar skills.

    They then head off to the Spooky day festival

    32979825202_1c5376ce84_c.jpg

    Once they arrive at the festival I noticed the guy in the yellow shirt is named Flat Broke.

    32979819912_68177c389e_c.jpg

    Stephen wins both the Pie eating contest and the apple bobbing competition.

    Stephen and Sakura stick around until it's time to close. Outside, Stephen introduces himself to one of the food venders, Don Lothario. Stephen learns that Don is a Smoozer, Hot headed, and a flirt. Stephen decides to try out his cursed bite on him.

    Sakura decides to pick some flowers while waiting for Stephen to finish his business.

    32291069754_c7501d8e5a_c.jpg

    Sakura then transforms and they start hunting. Their hunt ends at the Weather Stone where they activate the Hunter's storm.

    After breakfast, Stephen goes to the Prism Art Studio to smelt the metals they found the night before and dumpster dive. When he arrives there are a pair of horses already there.

    While at the festival yesterday Stephen received an opportunity to perform at the local school anytime after noon. Once he finishes his dive he goes home to shower then heads over to the school. Stephen receives $500 for the performance.

    I can think of worse ways to start the morning. :)

    Sakura then starts on a new painting while Stephen gets a shower.

    33118936006_9840ba76a5_c.jpg

    While in the shower Stephen gets a call from Don Lothario asking Stephen to upgrade his stereo. Stephen agrees and starts working on it.

    33032816181_431ae30354_c.jpg

    The mailperson arrives and delivers another bill. This one is for $250. Sakura stops working on her painting so she can pay it.

    32345202983_423c0ceac5_c.jpg

    She then decides to work a little more on "The Lonliest Yeti"

    33118925196_c5dbc10d55_c.jpg

    Stephen finishes the upgrade on the stereo and meets Don at the gym to return it.

    32345197903_bf1c97b201_c.jpg

    Seeing Don in werewolf form, Stephen decides to transform and is immediatly sniffed. (LOVE the look on Stephen's face)

    32777635250_d850a4b076_c.jpg

    Then they compare teeth.

    Stephen groups up with Don and starts a pack hunt. (What happened was Stephen hunted, Don worked out)

    While my sims slept, I looked around town at all the fishing spots to see if a unicorn has spawned yet. (no luck :( ) But I did see these 3 sleeping.

    32364010683_ef25e54bda_c.jpg

    After breakfast the next morning, Stephen decides to practice his guitar outside.

    32334115864_8186b2d09a_c.jpg

    Stephen stops playing the guitar when he gets a call from City Hall asking him to come and fix their election machines. For his trouble Stephen receives $1400.

    33179394675_cfcddab406_c.jpg

    After fixing the machines Stephen heads over to the Art Studio to smelt some ore he had found. He finds 4 tiny space rocks and runs into Hunter Cotteneye.

    33179391485_c68cf365ab_c.jpg

    While there I also have him dumpster dive. (I forgot to get a screenshot) but the results are as follows
    Trails end table and a cockroach

    Sakura finishes the painting for Betty and meets up with her after school.
    Betty likes the painting and gives her $41 for it.

    33022797912_81f9a598b8_c.jpg

    They talk for a bit and decide to make a snowman together.

    33179381025_af63a974c8_c.jpg

    This time the deer is thinking about ghosts.

    32334094634_f9e600c755_c.jpg

    Sakura makes mac and cheese for dinner.

    33179373335_55d0d5c820_c.jpg

    Stephen was very close to leveling up his guitar skill so I make him practice until he does (which didn't take long)

    33179367805_28ca6d51b0_c.jpg

    After he eats, Stephen decides to watch the action channel before bed.

    33179358625_2f9df5e200_c.jpg

    While they slept I expanded their Living room and kitchen and gave them another counter. I also finally remembered to buy them a burglar alarm.

    Stephen starts the day off by upgrading Sakura's laptop so that it won't break on her.

    33152267036_d475916b2e_c.jpg

    While Stephen is working on the computer Sakura continues work on her painting. She manages to finish it and sell it for $226.

    32378843863_790b46b031_c.jpg

    Betty Simovich calls Stephen and asks him to upgrade their shower. Her dad was wanting it done and sweet innocent Betty knew that Stephen and Sakura could use some extra money.

    33066298281_a5c22d2bbb_c.jpg

    Sakura decides to goto the Art Studio and make a few new acquaintances before dumpster diving.

    32349083514_ac50dcee1b_c.jpg

    Dumpster dive stats for Sakura
    Monarch Butterfly, Wish you tissues

    After Stephen finishes the upgrade on the shower he meets Betty at the gym to return it. She thanks him and said her dad will be thrilled. She also gives him $1250.

    33037193562_cbba295fac_c.jpg

    He then does a little dumpster diving himself.

    32349075434_23d0d0daf0_c.jpg

    Dumpster dive stats for Stephen
    Quartz, Ladybug

    Once they both get closer to their house, Stephen and Sakura transform and start hunting.

    Sakura Copper, Cerembyx Beetle, Cockroach, Bloodstone

    Stephen finished his hunt outside their home. Since it's the full moon 2 zombies had spawned outside. One of them wanted to attack Stephen. (I wanted to see what would happen between a zombie and a werewolf so I saved then let things play out.)

    Ooooo I'm so scared
    32378817023_963acf7d45_c.jpg

    Yeah, whatever.... I'm tired so I'm going to bed.

    Sakura starts the day by finishing a chapter of her book.

    33121131311_af606dbb28_c.jpg

    Stephen pays the next round of bills worth $263

    32405655564_a5193dd2e4_c.jpg

    Sakura decides to throw a gift giving party. While she is still setting up the chairs she rented Hunter Cotteneye shows up , followed by Don Lothario and a female werewolf whose name escapes me.

    33207904486_fe8fccb4ca_c.jpg

    I was still trying to have Stephen and Sakura talk to everyone when the gift opening began.

    32866545560_4f9d2f3413_c.jpg

    33249391675_599b8d8fc7_c.jpg
    Sakura ended up getting 2 art easels and Stephen got a Tiger vine plant

    Betty had to leave before all the gifts were handed out. (I think she wanted to go trick or treating because the teenager in the shot with her had rang the doorbell for trick or treating.

    33207880406_429314df68_c.jpg

    The party winds down and Stephen greets 2 more trick or treaters.

    With Snowflake day past them, spring fever is starting to hit Stephen and Sakura. They talk it over and decide that since their home is pretty much finished it was time they started their family.

    I heard baby chimes their 1st try.

    That afternoon Stephen gets a phone call asking him to go to the school to hold a presentation on Home Repair. He receives $400 for his efforts.

    32448252774_a852e29f3c_c.jpg

    While Stephen is gone, Sakura decides to continue work on her book. While doing so she gets a phone call letting her know that there is a Creativity Retreat going on at the bookstore. She decides to attend.

    33250404726_0a19cd3755_c.jpg

    32448245094_13a1dc19ff_c.jpg

    Stephen decides to try his luck at the Weatherstone and try summoning the Hunter's Storm....

    33250393616_050e714f47_c.jpg

    32448237924_96282f9fc2_c.jpg
    He was unsuccesful

    He then decides to start hunting

    33291224485_f13b56fbb7_c.jpg

    Hunting stats
    Water Beetle, Yellow sapphire, Monarch butterfly, Silver, Zepher metalmark butterfly, Japanese beetle

    Sakura leaves the retreat feeling inspired. She decides to build a snowman.

    33291219975_293b738b1d_c.jpg

    And while I'm checking on Stephen she makes a snow angel.

    33135867752_8c42f7caa1_c.jpg

    Stephen briefly returns home to mail off some of the metal and gems he found.

    32908252840_35699008be_c.jpg

    He then heads over to the consignment shop, cuts the rest of the gems and places them on consignment.

    32476624833_56c20a27cd_c.jpg

    33135862212_ecf579cae4_c.jpg

    Sakura had started working on a new painting when she started to feel a little under the weather. She wonders if her and Stephens wish to become parents is actually gonna happen.

    Stephen wakes up to find the gems he had sent off to be cut the previous day was returned.

    32495258393_b2f7fafed4_c.jpg

    The food that the guests had brought for the gift giving party had gone bad so Sakura had to clean out the fridge.

    33309690805_e4ec856a7e_c.jpg

    After breakfast Stephen and Sakura spend the morning working on their painting and guitar skills. While painting Sakura gets her pregnancy notice. (Either I had chosen the right winter wardrobe for Sakura or @CravenLestat's pattern helped keep Sakura in the outfit I chose for her.)

    33268941516_7699d6087b_c.jpg

    32495240523_cd41b3e7b3_c.jpg

    Sakrur rolls a wish to read a pregnancy book so I send her to the bookstore. When she arrives I notice a protest across the street ath City Hall.

    32466872874_b7c65368fd_c.jpg

    Sakura ignores the protesters and heads into the bookstore to buy Totally Preggers. While there she also purchases all of the recipies up to her current skill level.

    32927117750_7c34e003c5_c.jpg

    When Sakrura returns home she sees Stephen out raking up some of the leaves that had fallen last fall. He couldn't get them sooner because of the snow on the ground.

    32466863834_13bc2ac2ed_c.jpg

    While Sakura reads the pregnancy book, Stephen finishes raking and starts to hunt.

    Stephen donates the insects to science and gets $3,821 for them.

    Sakura makes Goopy Carbonara for their dinner and after they finish eating she breaks the good news to Stephen.

    33309659045_886380e400_c.jpg
    I missed the 'thumbs up shot'

    So I made Stephen congratulate her in a much better and appropriate way.

    32495198713_f30e5e44d2_c.jpg

    That night they dream of babies.

    After eating a breakfast of leftover goopy carbonara, Sakura decides to take a nice relaxing bath. (Note to the Sim God.... need to some buy bubble bath and a rubber ducky)

    32927384800_dc2ffa3f18_c.jpg

    32467060704_08d16f6225_c.jpg

    Stephen finally is able to start the upgrades on the upstairs bathroom. He begins with the bathtub first.

    32927372950_9458e6f38a_c.jpg

    Baby bump. :D

    32467055704_0bf6c3bf05_c.jpg

    Sakura finishes work on her 1st novel. It's called the Loneliest Yeti and she will get 6 royalty payments of $43 each.

    32467052944_48e73a6e02_c.jpg

    Stephen finishes the upgrade on the tub and moves on to the sink. While Sakura works on and finishes her painting.

    33182007101_13a38b5a1e_c.jpg

    The finished painting was brilliant and worth $427. I will post a pic of it finished in my next update.

    32467044914_4546797a07_c.jpg

    With the money they had gotten from selling the bugs and consignment items the day before, Stephen is able to get the workshop he wanted built.

    33154557022_1c00621382_c.jpg

    Stephen then goes out for his nightly hunt.

    Here's my latest update from my challenge. Since the house is mostly the way I want it I am changing things up a bit. Stephen and Sakura will not be dumpster diving as much. (Only on days they feel lucky) Instead they will work on raising the baby and fulfilling their lifetime goals. The same restrictions apply for how they can make money though.

    A picture of the painting that Sakura had finished the day before. It was worth $427. I hadn't seen this one before so decided to keep it for a while.

    33191947842_f3d9fb3878_c.jpg

    Sakura got hungry in the middle of the night so she went downstairs and ate some leftovers.

    33306430856_2ee4ed2b66_c.jpg

    Sakura goes into labor while she is trying to sleep in the next morning.

    33346885855_205dba3730_c.jpg

    32504153834_fd7640379b_c.jpg

    Sakura "I don't care if you use a knife, fork or whatever.....JUST GET THIS KID OUT!!!!!!!"

    32504147354_8be7d3c460_c.jpg

    They decided to have the baby at the hospital. I almost canceled the action but decided to let them go (this time)

    32532954283_4cc4b5eaff_c.jpg

    Welcome baby.
    Samual Artistic, Good. Likes: Latin music, Tri Tip Tofu steak, the color spice brown.

    33219284761_4742c0f9df_c.jpg

    I do not know how good of a mother Skura is going to be. She did feed the baby as soon as they got home but, she then put him in his cradle, rolled a wish to hire a babysitter and started working on a new painting.

    33306395586_68021e2573_c.jpg

    Since all of Sam's needs were taken care of at the moment I told Stephen to continue working on upgrading the upstairs toilet.

    33306385046_f18e4d692e_c.jpg

    While painting Sakura gets an opportunity to make 2 batches of cookies and deliver them to the school. She moves Samual to his swing before going downstairs to learn the recipe.

    33346861195_53af59d5a0_c.jpg

    Stephen finishes the toilet upgrade so I send him out hunting.

    33346850955_4560dcde20_c.jpg

    Hunting Stats
    Zepher Metalmark Butterfly, Quartz, Iron

    Deer close-up

    32964338810_21cf0211a6_c.jpg

    Earlier Sakura had rolled a wish to snuggle with Samual. After she learns how to make cookies, she goes upstairs, feeds Sam then snuggles with him.

    32964331900_7411b15f37_c.jpg

    Stephen tries his howl again at summining Hunter's Storm...... He fails.

    32532916653_d7f58b955c_c.jpg

    The rest of the evening goes by pretty quietly and it's not long until it's time for sleep.

    The morning starts off with Sakura giving Samuel a bath and a diaper change.

    33267502272_8b9864df77_c.jpg

    Stephen tests out the new gem cutter and smelting oven.

    32608899203_1d63d700f2_c.jpg

    After getting the baby all settled Sakura decides on a new outfit for spring.

    33423210865_55fc099c21_c.jpg

    Stephen decides to try summoning Hunter's Storm one last time by himself. So he heads over to the Weather Stone and transforms.

    33294796921_68fbcc5b94_c.jpg

    Don Lothario is in the same area and runs over to say HI to Stephen.

    33294793401_e31705120d_c.jpg

    33294785941_b7b8566962_c.jpg

    This attempt failed as well. But he did find a Septarian Noduale when he hunted after his attempt.

    33294779971_063dcc9c2a_c.jpg

    While Stephen is gone and the baby is sleeping Sakura makes to 2 batches of cookies she needs for the opportunity at the school. When Stephen returns home she heads out to deliver the cookies. The school pays her $800.

    33423193685_1f65080acc_c.jpg

    33423185985_497a4a2ac2_c.jpg

    Stephen plays a lullabye for Sam.

    Sakura wasn't able to transform during the whole pregnancy so she decides to do a little hunting of her own before returning home. She finds a smoky quartz.

    She then returns home and goes to bed.

    The morning starts with Stephen feeding and changing Samuel. Stephen had also rolled a wish to rock with him so.......

    Because I have more pictures than normal I'm going to put the rest in a spoiler
    Sakura decides to have a birthday party for Samual. Since their house isn't really big enough she rents the newly added rec area of the Rompr Recretion Playground. (I had made a mistake when setting up the party and instead of it starting later in the after noon they only had about an hour to get everything set up.)

    Sakura, Stephen and Samuel arrive at the venue not long before guests start to arrive. While Sam naps Sakura and Stephen greet the guests.

    It's not long until it's time to blow out the candles.

    Isn't he cute <3

    33315233231_e86bf17bdf_c.jpg

    The area behind the fence is for adults only. It has a juice bar and some slot machines. (After all parents need something to do while their kids play on the playground. At the time that was the only area with tables. (I have since fixed that)

    33287703402_fa3231fb52_c.jpg

    Sakura tries her hand at what she thought was a video poker machine. But was actually the game Tempest. (LOVED that game as a kid)

    33315203591_0a9e9d7579_c.jpg

    I saw June Shallow scratching up some of the furniture and told Stephen to go and talk to her.

    33287697942_ef38cfc527_c.jpg

    When he didn't go over there I checked and saw him telling little Samuel to stop scratching furniture instead.

    33315189181_8f5c1b9417_c.jpg

    As a more productive activity we convince Sam to practice his hunting. (This is one of my favorite pics. <3 My guy walked in and thought I was nuts with my reaction to Sam hunting)

    33060105760_ba281ccf1f_c.jpg

    Stephen strikes up a conversation with the paper boy Manuel Romo

    33287689612_e81960c697_c.jpg

    When I check on Sakura she was going over to tickle Samuel, then she decided to take him upstairs and put him in the playpen.

    33443250115_5b056c5830_c.jpg

    Before she reaches the playpen Sakura is stopped by Bob Newbie. He wanted to let her know how wonderful he thought her book was.

    33315144411_69aceec3cd_c.jpg

    School is now over for the day so Betty Simovich arrives at the party. Sice it is spring I give her dress a new spring design (Thanks to @CravenLestat's pattern)

    33315150861_4534f02f24_c.jpg

    Betty and I forget who doing their homework.

    33402787776_638fa7481f_c.jpg

    Sakura takes Sam outside so he can play on the spring riders.

    33287663712_0dd325473d_c.jpg

    Stephen tries his hand at one of the slot machines. He manages to win $310

    33443214355_6c7076d7c9_c.jpg

    The party ends. Sakura hears that everyone thought her party was Epic.

    Once the return home Sam was starting to get that special look on his face so the potty training begins.

    33443210265_9889b9ee9d_c.jpg
    @Mikezumi I had never noticed this expression on the little one's faces until you had pointed out.

    Sam's first attempt at howling at the moon.

    33287648242_70f170d58b_c.jpg
    He is so stinkin CUTE!!!!!

    Sakura gets a little bit of painting in while Stephen starts teaching Sam to talk.

    I remembered that I was waiting for Stephen and Sakura to have a child before I decided to change the patterns on the walls and floor of the nursery. This is what I came up with. But, @lisasc360 created some really cute patterns. I downloaded both the duckie/teddy bear and freezer bunny/giraffe with the blue back ground. (Next post I'll show what I decided to do)

    I neglected to get a lot of pictures because I got caught up playing with Sam.

    Stephen paid the latest round of bills which were worth $296. He then called Don Lothario over.

    Sakura has a quick bite to eat after making sure Samuels needs were taken care of and starts painting.

    33355000681_9407e0d897_c.jpg

    33483119515_6ecb317680_c.jpg

    When Don showed up the first thing he started to do was scratch up the chairs.

    33483113655_5a858f2990_c.jpg

    Sam practices his hunting again. This time he found a water beetle. (I was so proud of him. :) )

    33483106555_cec1f891c8_c.jpg

    33327147702_bcab4b7645_c.jpg

    I missed seeing Stephen and Don arrive at the weather stone because Trick or treaters showed up.

    32669028243_bd54a01117_c.jpg

    When I checked on Stephen and Don the action to summon Hunters Storm was canceled and Don was walking away. I told Stephen to try again with Don.

    33442167766_a29eb2369a_c.jpg

    Don went over and started scratching the bench while Stephen howled. The weather stone must have thought that they both were doing the summoning because it worked. :D

    Hunter's Storm stats
    Stag Beetle, Spotted Beetle, Bloodstone, Blue Topaz
    Stephen also does some hunting on his own and finds a Japanese beetle and a Water Beetle

    Samuel works on his music skills.

    33483078065_222b68fd6d_c.jpg

    Sakura manages to finish a brilliant painting worth $367

    33327133072_bd234a5da3_c.jpg

    Sam gets put in the playpen and he works on learning to talk and also plays with the abacus.

    33483073775_f14e45b9f8_c.jpg

    33327126352_1e9b6e337a_c.jpg

    This is how I decided to remodel Samuel's room. I might redo the floor because I'm afraind that the cars covering the floor might make it look a little busy.

    33379837842_e781e02507_c.jpg

    33537084815_a25043de46_c.jpg

    Sam is even more awake now than when he was put in the playpen so his parents could get some sleep. Sam spent the night playing with the abacus and learning how to talk.

    33408286491_8e149d71e2_c.jpg

    Stephen wakes up and takes Samuel out of the crib. It looked like Stephen is giving Sam a kiss on the head. <3

    33495910446_7736bf1c9b_c.jpg

    Stephen works with Sam and after all the hard work, Sam learns to talk.

    33495905166_c5224bc641_c.jpg

    Samuel starts playing with his xylophone so Stephen goes downstairs and cuts some of the gems in his inventory.

    33537062285_38b5c003ca_c.jpg

    33537051085_7b7d8a8fc6_c.jpg

    The gem cutter must really be loud because Sam could hear it all the way upstairs and in the main part of the house.

    33153264440_f8b054d880_c.jpg

    Bob Newbie called asking Sakura to fix a serving of any type of food and deliver it to him. Since Samuel is keeping himself entertained, Sakura heads downstairs and makes some pancakes to give Bob.

    32722388413_90941086aa_c.jpg

    Sam decides to practice his hunting again. He finds a Zepher Metalmark Butterfly.

    33495889376_2e31984b89_c.jpg

    Sam gets put down for a nap, and while Stephen practices his guitar, Sakura delivers the food to Bob Newbie. He gives Sakura $200.

    33408219041_46d3acb17c_c.jpg

    33153253940_47b04565aa_c.jpg

    Sakura returns home. Both her and Stephen had rolled wishes to woohoo so, while Samuel still slept.....

    33408205971_689d48b348_c.jpg
    Sorry about the back of the mirror in the shot. To get a good pic I had to take it with the walls down.

    Samuel wakes up hungry. Sakura gives him a bottle and starts on a new painting while he's drinking.

    33379761612_49be1cbf2a_c.jpg

    33408201401_ffdbeff299_c.jpg

    Stephen goes to the consignment store and places the the items he has on consignment. He also donates all of the bugs he found to science and gets $934

    33536979465_1db3d8c0bc_c.jpg

    Sakura had rolled the wish to teach Samuel to walk so after he finishes his bottle they start.

    32722343183_727cc987d3_c.jpg

    After working on it for while it is time for bed. Sakura successfully potty trains Samual puts him to bed, then heads off to bed herself.

    32722333703_792fb465ef_c.jpg

    33153276150_e7b347ab40_c.jpg

    While they slept I expanded their kitchen area Sam's room, and deck. I also added another rug and a few kitchen counters.

    Bonus pics
    While I was looking to see if a unicorn has appeared yet I saw the 3 wild horses at the fishing pond I had built a while back and placed close to Stephen and Sakura's house.

    33153197450_cb6c14be75_c.jpg

    While checking one of the other fishing spots I saw an alien named Sunnup Thobanob. Yes she is walking on the water. She also phased through the fence that surrounded the fishing area.
