I still believe things need to be fixed but for now I can appreciate what we can do and use my own imagination to try and make a wonderful story like yours!! Thanks so much for sharing this!!!

    Now that Anna is a teen, it was time to swap the colouring table for an easel and start work on her very first painting!

    27823225214_e90b6842f4_o.png

    Later that afternoon, she headed outside to check out the new neighbours who had just moved in next door.

    27823217954_5b822e1072_o.png

    He introduced himself as Moises, and explained that he had just moved in with his parents and sister. He also went on to say that he and his sister would be starting the same high school as Anna on Monday! Anna didn't know if it was the weather, but something about Moises made her a little flushed...

    27823216694_2154a7be2e_o.png

    That night, Ryan picked up Nicole and they headed to the nightclub together. Check out their moves!

    28361173121_b5f5676a89_o.png

    Ryan: "Bartender, we need a couple of drinks over here!"
    It looks like they worked up quite a thirst.

    28439753785_d3d221fb03_o.png

    But Ryan is thirsty for more than a drink it seems.

    27823222914_78650b6df6_o.png

    28439753485_2ceb510d00_o.png

    Nicole: "I love this song!"
    Ryan: "Yeah, but I wish we could dance face to face." [Hint, Maxis]

    28361172541_9575c7cc24_o.png

    Nicole: "I don't know, the view isn't so bad from here..."

    28361172021_ee54b8db35_o.png

    The club was starting to empty, and the young couple were getting closer and closer...
    Ryan: "Wanna go back to my place?"

    28439754155_44dbe94674_o.png

    They arrived back in that weird time when it's gone light but the streetlamps are still on.

    28361171271_27031ca512_o.png

    Things are moving fast!

    27823219834_7b29ff09d5_o.png

    28439754495_68cae9549b_o.png

    28361170301_b2ff89de59_o.png

    Aw, well they had been dating for a long time. And they seem very happy together.

    27823218974_2153015d6f_o.png

    So, it was a family of five at the breakfast table the next morning!
    Kimberly: "Gary, I need you to bake me a fruitcake. I want to go round and welcome our new neighbours later."

    28156844080_f64af29833_b.jpg

    Anna: "Oh, I met the son yesterday. He seems nice."
    Nicole can read between the lines of "nice," meanwhile Ryan remains oblivious.

    27823663263_a038cc1c6b_o.png

    So, later that evening Kimberly, Gary and Anna headed over to their new next-door neighbours.

    28334959612_47957b0d68_o.png

    Anna loitered outside, afraid her mom might embarrass her in front of Moises. But Skye, Moises' sister, came out and introduced herself.
    Skye: "Hey classmate. If we have a test on Monday can I copy off you? I kind of don't do studying."
    Skye is a rebel.

    27823659803_ddc447183d_o.png

    But Ruben and Lesley, the parents, are anything but rebels!
    Gary: "Ruben, you'll have to come over to one of my guy's nights sometime."
    Kimberly: [Under her breath] "He isn't the type of guy you invite to play poker in the garage, Gary."

    27823658933_294a12621b_o.png

    Kimberly: "So, I hear you're a doctor Lesley. Did you know our daughter plays the violin?"

    28334958502_cd2b59287c_o.png

    In the backroom the teens were getting better acquainted around a poker table, no less. Perhaps Ruben would enjoy one of Gary's guy's nights after all! At least Anna and Moises seem to be getting along, even if Skye seems more interested in looking up where the next rave will be held.

    28361163731_788d34be99_o.png

    Living this close to each other, I'm sure the Porters and the Albrights are going to be seeing a lot more of each other! :wink:

    This is kinda off topic, but I thought I'd share some of what's gone on with one of my families :). Kiarah and Ned Lynch got a new addition to their house! ;)

    She's rocking the baby bump! ;)

    Baby time! XD QKMlb3y.png

    And...It's a girl! :).

    Her name is Kaleeah Lynch ^_^.

    The couple is so happy :). I love the photos I took o:). It's moments/family plays like @Simanite 's and my own that make me cherish the game and enjoy it :).


    And then there's this random moment/story xD. Before baby was born :)-




    I told Ned to do sit ups just because, and he'd been outside. Well..he decided to go into the study/work room where his wife Kiarah was, to do them. She was busy being pregnant, and writing a book, :p.


    cFMdjl5l.png
    Ned: Feeling the burn!

    Ned: Notice me, waifu!
    T7QCnqBl.png

    Ned: Forget it..

    I find it amusing that he went to her on his own, and the fact that he's doing sit ups in his formal wear, lol xD.

    Cool update @Simanite - Moises is definitely cute, that hairstyle looks great on him.

    So, are we going to hear wedding bells for Ryan or is something going to come along and ruin their happiness?
  • SimaniteSimanite Posts: 4,833 Member

    @elanorbreton Thanks! Yeah, I like Moises and Skye a lot. I think they're cute but different to the type of Sims I usually make. :) Usually, my Sims live perfect happy lives so I doubt anything will ruin it for Ryan and Nicole. :lol: Marriage is definitely on the cards for the future. :smile:
  • NShippudenFanNShippudenFan Posts: 3,825 Member
    Here's some more family moments, hope thats okay to share xD. They have matching outfits and their room matches too, just different colors and items xD. Maybe ill try taking pics of their other matching outfits sometime xD.


    The twin girls Tabitha and Teresa :).
    They're not the prettiest, but I think they're interesting looking.
    Tabitha *pink* Teresa *orange:

    Great updates, @Simanite - and I like the pictures other people have been posting too. :smile:

    Me too. The snowflakes on the window almost make me believe it is snowing outside instead of perpetual sunshine.
  • Brieanna19Brieanna19 Posts: 307 Member
    It would be so nice to actually have some seasons. It would (my opinion) help out story telling a little more. Having sunshine all the time gets super annoying.. At least let our sims either get tan or burn from all that sun :lol:

    @NShippudenFan Cute Sims! :)

    @Terra Thanks! :)

    @Simpocalypse Yeah, I'm desperate for Seasons!

    @Omri147 Aw thanks! I have been neglecting the Porters because I've been having too much fun with Alessandro and Cory, but I'll get back to them next week. :smile:

    @Sim Shady Aw thank you! :)

    Either way I still get to read a story that I enjoy, so it's a win-win situation anyway. :)

    I'm just letting you guys know I'm taking a break from Sims and the Forums for a little while. I've really fallen in love with playing TS4 recently, but I have a lot of things I need to do during the summer before I start university again, and I need to avoid the distraction. Thank you all for the lovely comments, sharing my family's journey with them and for making me feel very welcome. Feel free to continue posting in this thread or passing it along if anyone needs ideas for family play. I hope you all have a wonderful summer and enjoy Simming, no matter which game you play. Me (and my Sims) will see you all again soon. Bye for now! :heart:
  • EvalenEvalen Posts: 9,996 Member
    @Simanite Love your play style, do your sims work and do you give them money to live on.
  • SimaniteSimanite Posts: 4,833 Member
    @Evalen Thank you! The dad (Gary) works as a chef and now Ryan is a YA he is going to get a job, too. I cheated to let them have their home for free, so they started off with about $20,000 but I didn't use the money cheat. They just lived off Gary's wages. :)
  • egandreegandre Posts: 659 Member
    @Simanite Have you played with this family recently, I love the story!
  • SimaniteSimanite Posts: 4,833 Member
    @egandre Thank you! No I haven't played them in a while. I'll be sure to post an update as soon as I do! :)
