    Jason summoned French Toast for Sunday breakfast :)
    45796853834_6bd56690f9_o.jpg
    Josie's waking wish was to have a tea party with her teddy :)
    45796853294_819aa9312e_o.jpg
    I let Jason and Josh take a break from gardening because Jason's waking wish was to play a game with Josh :)
    32647449358_ca70ef45b9_o.jpg
    45796850254_9339e31809_o.jpg
    The family went to the Town Hall for the boys' Graduation :)

    32647448548_d8c73bea9f_o.jpg
    45796847454_551f4db321_o.jpg
    Ian was Class Valedictorian and voted Most Likely to Fulfill His LTW :)
    32647448288_ee1ee09724_o.jpg
    Paul was voted Most Like to Get Married :)

    Ian rolled a wish to throw a party on graduating so I decided he could have a wedding party :) Mikezumi was the first to arrive :)
    32647447828_7992bf6408_o.jpg
    The family had been playing outside when the guests started arriving :)
    46520777571_e1a2f4be09_o.jpg
    Ian, a Party Animal, was getting into the swing of things :D
    32647447378_b02c6f1bfc_o.jpg
    Mikezumi can't believe her luck at being surrounded by so many beautiful males. She's probably cursing me for turning off romance for her ;)
    46520776671_7bb5f5edf7_o.jpg
    No sooner had Jared arrived, than he left :( I remembered that he had joined the culinary career so perhaps he was working. At least Connor, Alex and Morty stayed for the wedding :)
    32647446628_b49b57f092_o.jpg
    I was surprised to see Shellie, Stefan's daughter, arrive as she wasn't invited but I was glad because she would be good company for the kids.
    46520775691_e5b23f90ec_o.jpg
    I saw "react to skinny dipper" in Josh's queue and found Stein (with the wrong naked outfit hair) in the hot tub :D
    32647446028_c349e3edb3_o.jpg
    I had to laugh when I saw Stefan sneaking off to steal his brother's clothes :D
    46520774551_06fd90e5d9_o.jpg
    Although I wanted to get the wedding out of the way, I let everyone socialize for a while.
    32647445318_7507bbb622_o.jpg
    Stefan never did steal Stein's outfit :p He also had the wrong naked outfit hair :| It took me a moment to notice Josh behind the bamboo :D

    I was a little worried that not everyone would take a seat when several of them came from the same direction and got in each other's way.
    32647444388_620e7967ac_o.jpg
    But everyone made it :) I was happy to see that Mikezumi was in the front row with the family :)
    46520771421_f5281da44d_o.jpg
    Josh and Jason were moved by the wedding :)
    32647443598_2143cce38c_o.jpg
    46520769721_e6f63dea04_o.jpg
    The family got up before it was over :# but didn't wander off. The guests sat throughout the ceremony :)

    46520768501_6db985cfdb_o.jpg

    46520765541_488afc7538_o.jpg
    At least the family joined in to throw rice at the happy couple :)
    32647440078_cdc559e8dc_o.jpg
    I thought it was perfect when Paul leaned in for a shy kiss while the guests threw rice :)
    46520763761_4fa4a0c085_o.jpg
    The children wandered off but the grown ups gathered around for the cake cutting :)
    46520762471_f5c39b6e53_o.jpg
    I'd forgotten that I had invited Clifford and was happy to see him arriving in time for cake :)
    32647438618_8fba5c94d6_o.jpg
    45796835234_56ed38ca7c_o.jpg
    45796834894_18307a4ba2_o.jpg
    Cliff was the last guest to arrive but the first guest to get to the cake :D
    45796834564_13ae927d73_o.jpg
    Paul got the Party Animal trait recently when he reached the top of the Jock Social Group. I found him dancing inside. Alex is also a Party Animal :)

    Morty broke the dishwasher :D
    44703366760_76d84fbe74_o.jpg
    I was happy to see Mikezumi was true to form in enjoying the company of children :)
    44703366220_62db677c2b_o.jpg
    For a loner, Connor seems to enjoy parties! He asked Paul for this dance!
    45796831994_b20b8941d0_o.jpg
    The party went on for hours and the family and guests were getting hungry. Only Paul and Ian got to eat cake because I didn't want the guests to miss out.
    44703365430_26df0ab0c4_o.jpg
    Mikezumi must not have realized that the family had served her favourite, fish and chips :D
    45796831554_734a3883ff_o.jpg
    Connor asked Paul to dance again!
    44703364930_723a60df20_o.jpg
    Mikezumi was getting around :D
    45796831074_e7a8749df1_o.jpg
    Because Paul rolled so many painting wishes as a teen I gave him Artistic when he aged up. I didn't expect him to start painting while his wedding party was still going on :D
    45796830864_9f965f3e23_o.jpg
    I saw Jason heading to the hot tub with a drink in hand :)
    45796830594_f1440fa36f_o.jpg
    Ian wanted to introduce himself to Clifford :)
    45796830424_04edcaf21b_o.jpg
    Josie played for everyone :)
    45796830294_129f753804_o.jpg
    Gah! I love Clifford! He was born in an inactive household in an older save and when I saw him as a teen I immediately saved him to the bin :)
    45607275605_aff4b5b196_o.jpg
    Jared might be mean spirited but Connor gives my sims the most grief! :#
    45796830014_dbe81f6b1e_o.jpg
    Jason rolled a wish to ask Josh to join him in the hot tub. How could I say no? ;)
    45607275485_fe4899a4f0_o.jpg
    The guests finally left and Paul and Ian ended their day by watching the house :D

    I had to catch up on all your post. It was a lovely wedding. I was surprised everyone sat down. The last wedding I had in a game I couldn't get anyone to sit down. Is the wedding arch in the game or did you get from the store? Also, I'm curious about where the wedding cake came from. I never could find the wedding arch so I got one from the store but I don't like it. I've enjoyed all of your posts. I look forward to seeing Paul and Ian's children.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    @wsteffi30 Thanks for reading and the lovely comments :)
    I was surprised everyone sat down but the family let me down by standing up part way through the ceremony.
    I want to say the wedding arch came with Generations but I could be wrong. I think a couple of other wedding arches came with sets, like Bohemian Garden. I could be wrong but one might also have come with Monte Vista.
    As for the wedding cake, I am pretty sure that is the one that came with Generations. I know I have a couple of others, one from Monte Vista and one from the Bridal set.

    @Mikezumi. Next time I play the game I'll look and see if I see the wedding arch. I know I've used one before but for some reason, I wasn't able to find it during the last wedding I had. Thanks for the information.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    I've almost decided what to do with Josie and Jaxon but it probably won't happen for a few more sim days yet. In the meantime, life goes on as normal. Jaxon summoned breakfast for the family because he finished making his bed first :)
    45634084215_0a46b34f50_o.jpg
    Many hands make light work :) Because two of the money trees were ready to harvest, Ian and Paul got two promotions from the morning's gardening :)
    44729927390_e5e61d7780_o.jpg
    I'd sent Josie to feed the chickens and collect the eggs. When I checked on her she had a moodlet from having found an exotic egg :)
    45634083245_d93a2afb0f_o.jpg
    Josh had a wish to play a game with Jaxon :)
    44729926810_4352716d30_o.jpg
    One of the wedding guests must have blocked the toilet as my sims have steel bladders. Josh rolled a wish to repair it when he walked through the bathroom on his way to breakfast so he got the job.
    45634082285_f21822d9fb_o.jpg
    Ian and Paul sought each other out after the gardening was done :)
    45634081735_870ac8e381_o.jpg
    Their flirting led to the hot tub :)
    45634081195_e2c40d21b3_o.jpg
    Jason and Josh were also flirting :)
    45634080545_ca61901de7_o.jpg
    I sent Paul to finish his painting while Ian and Josh took care of some fishing wishes they had locked in.
    45634080255_b13f43a4e8_o.jpg
    45634079825_176e55cb1f_o.jpg
    I'd forgotten the house came with a barre until I found Jason using it :)

  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    Paul finished his painting. It's cute so I will put it in the kids' room :)
    44729924000_e4dba8d42e_o.jpg
    Josh made some skill gain drinks. He's getting quite good at it now and didn't drop a single bottle :)
    45634078055_131e5b3300_o.jpg
    44729923530_4d8186ee1a_o.jpg
    I heard woohoo and found Ian and Paul in the hot tub :D
    45634077485_73ede4ec7e_o.jpg
    45634077005_991fcf53d7_o.jpg
    Josie and Jaxon have mastered Scouting so I pulled them out. It will be nice to have them home early every day :)
    45634076535_7ff00c336d_o.jpg
    Although Josh and Jason were chatting when I found them, I could see what they had been up to ;)
    46495581222_8912ccd0b6_o.jpg
    Paul and Ian played catch after the hot tub romp :D
    45634075415_049f9d92d4_o.jpg
    Josie came home with a wish to go on a submarine adventure :)

    I saw Josh heading to the diving board :D It's nice to see the family make use of the pool :)
    44729921170_78f9d5d359_o.jpg
    45634073305_d5d908f06d_o.jpg
    Jason is still working on his wish to reach level 6 in cooking so the family ate grilled cheese sandwiches which he had prepared a little earlier :)
    45634072715_89eaedf96d_o.jpg
    Both couples watched the stars after dinner :)
    44729920180_26c300ecc7_o.jpg
    I think Josh and Jason watched the stars a couple of times before I stopped them from doing it again.
    46495579392_374815320a_o.jpg
    Josie autonomously rode a spring rider :)
    46495579042_2745542fe3_o.jpg
    Paul started another painting and Ian helped himself to a drink :)
    46495578642_0b3f6a7f75_o.jpg
    He was heading to the hot tub with his drink when Josie intercepted him for a game of catch :)

    First: Happy New Year!

    I’m up to date again :blush: Curious what plans you have in store for Josie and Jaxon...
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    @JoAnne65 Happy New Year to you also :)
    45825074914_b733df8448_o.jpg

    I have decided, at least I think, who Josie and Jaxon will be paired with. I won't be keeping either of them because the reason I started this save was to play Ian and Paul to see their genetics. I won't be getting rid of Josh and Jason, though, because they are lovely to have around but I don't need their kids and partners cluttering up the household :D
  • JoAnne65JoAnne65 Posts: 21,538 Member
    Can’t wait to see what their genetics will bring. Did you test them in CAS or does it always come as a surprise in your game? I always test because some combinations can be quite disappointing, even when the parents are goodlooking :s
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    @JoAnne65 I haven't tested their genetics so it will be a total surprise. I am not so much worried about kids that look like Paul but Ian has a funny face with close-set eyes and strong jaw. I am hoping to get good combinations of their features if that is possible :p
    I am trying to not be so "safe" with my genetics. When making sims based on people in the past I would compromise the likeness if the female counterpart was unfortunate looking. Ian, Paul and Jason were made without worrying about that. Of course I looked at them as females, but didn't change them if I didn't like how they looked. I am thinking I would rather have an unusual looking sim than a bland one.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    The family ate waffles that Jason cooked the day before. He still hasn't reached level 6 but he's getting closer :)
    44746571020_320b96ee02_o.jpg
    Ian rolled a wish to prepare Eggs Machiavellian when the watermelons were ready to harvest :)
    31623275187_f68ccf1107_o.jpg
    Paul and Jason did the gardening.
    44746570580_f79b6131a8_o.jpg
    Jaxon woke with a wish to finish a book so I gave him a comic book :)
    31623274367_c0a111564e_o.jpg
    Josie had no waking wish but Josh rolled a wish to play a game with her over breakfast :)
    44746569950_948e1a8a28_o.jpg
    She's probably wishing she did roll a waking wish ;)
    31623273537_4b2b160505_o.jpg
    Ian rolled a wish to meet someone new but everyone was either at home or work so I sent him to the cemetery.
    44746569300_d5c33063ce_o.jpg
    He got the introduction in just before the ghost vanished.
    31623272217_e1c7c22e23_o.jpg
    Those chickens see a lot! :D
    44746568630_5137f76f2f_o.jpg
    Paul's waking wish was to catch a great fish. I had Ian join him. While fishing he rolled several fish wishes which were fulfilled :)
    31623271167_12917639c8_o.jpg
    Ian caught his first robot fish :)

    The kids had a field trip to the Bistro. Pedro Herrerra was chaperone.
    31623270507_1987075716_o.jpg
    Clifford's daughters, Carol and Anne, also went :)
    31623269377_262960cd38_o.jpg
    Josh reached level 5 in mixology :)
    46564255971_8be873403f_o.jpg
    Jason burned the pancakes :# :D
    46564255491_c2bbeef5d3_o.jpg
    I left the boys to their own devices once several fish wishes had been fulfilled and I saw them heading to the hot tub so I followed to see who instigated it. It was Ian.
    31623268117_25600547ae_o.jpg
    Cuddling led to wishes to makeout so I let them have it :)
    46564254721_57db78f978_o.jpg
    I sent Josh and Jason to the park. Although Jason was in the lead, Josh got there first.
    31623267147_4ece122338_o.jpg
    I checked on them a little later and they were happily entertaining each other :)
    46564254001_dc51d81295_o.jpg
    Ian and Paul joined them when they finished in the hot tub. They must not have been finished with their woohooing :D
    31623265977_9160985166_o.jpg
    Josie did her last homework as a child :)
    31623265447_fb9a863f3f_o.jpg
    The family gathered around the birthday cake :)

    She's not sure if she likes growing up :D
    32690695758_c5f3076658_o.jpg
    Although she is mostly Josh, she has Jason's eyes :)

  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 45,031 Member
    While the cake was being served, Ian received a text that Beitris Lothario's party was about to begin. I sent the family as soon as they finished eating.
    31623262607_23cf128671_o.jpg
    Although it was a formal party, Josie didn't have one because I only gave her an everyday outfit on aging up. She did have the game generated one but there was no way I was keeping it!
    32690694058_0a06c736d6_o.jpg
    Beitris, a good host, was preparing mac and cheese :)
    31623261707_2ac3d9668e_o.jpg
    I didn't think anyone was going to go inside!
    32690693378_986d833352_o.jpg
    Mikezumi arrived and chatted with Jason :)
    31623261117_c5736e61e5_o.jpg
    Oops! I saw Ian grab Paul for woohoo at the same time as Shark grabbed his wife, Rosemary, for the same! :D
    31623260777_aa5fa28797_o.jpg
    Paul and Ian got inside first! :D
    31623260317_1a0d757868_o.jpg
    31623260047_e192b532a3_o.jpg
    Beitris came into the bathroom to chat with Jason. He had been checking himself out in the mirror :D
    45650242915_4077855bf2_o.jpg
    Why are the women the only ones working in the kitchen? Feels too much like my own life! :# :D
    31623259507_5ef2ede1df_o.jpg
    I sent the boys outside to watch the stars before anyone else tried to woohoo! :D

    The family ate cooked food for breakfast. I am determined to not be so lazy! :D
    44760071050_65fdcc829b_o.jpg
    Josie didn't have a waking wish so I had her get started on the cooking skill. Because of several field trips to the Bistro both in MV and SV, she had maxed the toy oven and immediately went to level 3 :) She looks a little annoyed that she has to actually cook when she knows she could easily summon food ;)
    44760070650_55a8e549b0_o.jpg
    Jaxon's waking wish was to ride on a spring rider :)
    44760070350_488d01aa89_o.jpg
    46578012771_54834bfd4b_o.jpg
    Jason, Josh and Ian gardened while Paul collected the eggs and the mail. Paul found another exotic egg :)
    44760060640_06227e5eaa_o.jpg
    I found Jason boasting about his gamerz skill which is silly since he doesn't play games :D
    46525783772_e9cbc72608_o.jpg
    Paul and Ian came inside to have a drink :)
    46525779162_bae30965e0_o.jpg
    Josh had a wish to take a photo with a friend. I could see Ian trying to sneak off to the hot tub with his drink :D
    44760048620_4da5e60b54_o.jpg
    He didn't get far because Paul wanted to flirt :)
    44760047100_8acbb1c2c0_o.jpg
    The flirting didn't go far because Jason wanted to chat with Ian :D
    44760046710_4c1450af0f_o.jpg
    Jason had been relaxing in the hot tub when Josh came out to kiss him :) Ian and Paul were taking a break from flirting :D
    46525775432_709729c5af_o.jpg
    Jason and Josh took their flirting to the next level ;)

    Josh rolled a wish to create a new drink. He worked at it for a couple of sim hours but had no luck. Ian and Paul danced nearby :)
    32704189548_69b1fa9782_o.jpg
    Jason chose to work out while Josh was busy :)

    Shellie Wright came home from school with Jaxon :)

    She was in a bad state when she arrived so I was glad that Jaxon rolled a wish to play tag with her :) They played before doing their homework.

    Josie came home late because of Music Class. Josh was still working on his wish to create a new drink!

    When I saw that Shellie was feeling better, I had Jaxon ask her to join him for homework.

    Josh took Josie for a driving lesson :)

    I got a popup that Josie had got her licence and when I zoomed to them I found her playing her violin :D

    Jaxon fished before bed. He has a wish to master fishing locked in. He's part way through level 8.

    Josie is a looker! A bit of the ice queen type. Lol, none of my genies know how to cook, they never do. And at one point I built a house and discovered just in time I’d actually forgotten to add a bathroom :D

    Thanks @JoAnne65 :) She does seem a little bit of an ice queen! In truth, she's very sweet and I am glad that TS3 sims aren't as comically expressive as other iterations of the game.
    I don't think I have ever made a house without a bathroom! :D My sims all have steel bladders but a house really should have one ;)

    @Mikezumi I'm going to read through your latest updates and will give feedback later tonight. I see that there have been several birthdays and a wedding! :)

    RE: Jason. Didn't you say you used a younger Jason Momoa as a model when you made your Jason sim? Or am I remembering someone else?
