    @debjameswhite - wow, what an update! Imagine Finley moving next door to Piper and not realising she was there :lol: And for her to keep calling him and turning up wherever he was but saying I don't want to see you again... hmm, very suspicious. Aw, Charlotte seems nice. Oh my goodness - triplets?! How are they all going to fit in that small apartment??? Congrats on Finley finishing that Mt Komorebi climb! None of my sims have even attempted that yet!

    @Army008 - that seems like a good restart to your challenge! I wonder whether they'll both find love?

    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.04
    The family started off the week visiting some of the cousins. Mabel (in red) and Beatrice (in green) got along well with Ivy's daughter Olivia, while Arthur was well on his way to becoming BFFs with Lark's son Brant.

    Arthur and Nellie got room makeovers.
    08-24-21_5-02-12-pm.png
    When they weren't playing inside with their Voidcritters, Arthur and Nellie were at the jungle gym they discovered only metres away from their house.

    Ivy's late-in-life baby Olivia aged into a child.

    After finding some excellent cc for toddlers, Mabel and Beatrice were able to try out some new activities. No, Honey isn't missing a head in the last pic!

    Arthur and Nellie continued to work on their aspirations.

    Mabel tried to imitate Fraser but he seems to be somewhat bewildered by her :lol:
    08-28-21_2-34-53-pm.png
    The older twins invited their cousins around and Nellie was able to become BFFs with Olivia.
    08-28-21_2-34-43-pm.png
    08-28-21_2-39-41-pm.png
    Family still likes to come around to visit. Lark and Raiden are the ones that drop in the most often.

    Holly enjoys her garden...
    08-28-21_3-01-56-pm.png
    The younger twins get a lot of love and attention from everyone.

    And between them, they create a lot of artwork.
    08-28-21_3-33-39-pm.png
    Kit and Violet's daughter Michaela aged into a toddler. She seems to take after her mother completely! And she's the first spellcaster born into the family.
    08-28-21_4-10-29-pm.png
    Dove reached level 8 in the Secret Agent career and gained a new outfit!
    08-28-21_4-34-34-pm.png
    And before the twins aged up, the family got a portrait done.
    08-28-21_4-29-00-pm.png
    Then it was time for the younger twins to age up.
    08-28-21_4-52-51-pm.png
    08-28-21_4-53-59-pm.png
    Mabel aged up with the Gloomy trait and Rambunctious Scamp aspiration, while Beatrice gained the Goofball trait and the Social Butterfly aspiration.
    08-28-21_5-06-18-pm.png
    08-28-21_5-10-48-pm.png
    So far, at this point, Mabel and Beatrice are still identical. Here's a comparison of all four kids. The eye shapes are different, as are the mouths, but all four kids seemed to inherit the same nose and maybe face shape as well.
    gen-4-kids.png
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    So this chapter is when I started getting some cc. There was some great toddler stuff by PandaSamaCC that helps raise all skills, plus a photo mod (by Ravasheen) that allows you to capture your save file pic as an in-game portrait. The xylophone especially works really well for raising thinking without having to use flashcards or the blocks.

    I'm going to try and get out another couple of updates soon because I need some help trying to decide who to have as heir. It's between Arthur and Mabel, both of them turn out really nice as teens, both have a career I haven't done, and at the moment, both get along really well with their potential spouses. I really don't know how to work out who to have as heir!!!

    @MayaRose1138 - I think I am team Arthur but I can't wait to see him as a teen!
  • MayaRose1138MayaRose1138 Posts: 1,506 Member
    @Ojenn - I really wish we could have more than 8 sims in a house because then I’d be tempted to have both sims as heir. Both of them are getting along well with their potential spouses (although Arthur wasn’t originally but then a power blackout forced a restart and they got along better the second time), and they both have careers I haven’t done - scientist and doctor. I tend towards female heirs in my saves but I know that I should try a male heir at some point 🤣. Their spouses - Miranda and Cohen - are very similar genetically so there’s not even that that can help me split them!

    I do know that whoever I don’t have out of Arthur and Mabel will move in with Lyric and Alec, Nellie will move to San Myshuno (because of her aspiration) and Beatrice will remain with Dove and Holly.
  • OJennOJenn Posts: 8,283 Member
    I don't have much to report as I have been working on updating my family tree and getting my townies all made-over. I have finished uni for my heir and I am hoping to post soon ♥
  • debjameswhitedebjameswhite Posts: 1,580 Member
    @Army008 I'm sorry you had to restart your challenge, but your founders look great! Can't wait to see what happens.

    @MayaRose1138 Your toddler pics are always so cute. I love seeing the kids doing everything in their every day life. Oh wow I haven't seen the item yet that lets the kids lay on the floor and draw! I love that you have a garden inside! I feel less alone now hehe I've done that so many times! It's just easier right? Ooo I love the portrait! I forgot you could do that. It's been so long since I've done something like that. Oh except that I just read that you used a mod...but I could swear I did something like that without one. Now I'll have to investigate!

    @OJenn Looking forward to seeing what happens with your heir! You're making me want to give my townies a remake too!

    Hi Everyone

    It has been a few weeks since I've posted here and I do have an update (or two or three?). I play sporadically and usually for an hour or so at a time so it's taking me a while to get anywhere. I'm also still reading through this thread (like I've always done) and I'm currently on page 32, so I'm getting there.

    Having lightning strike the hot tub wasn't the best way to start...
    1jj5WcL.jpeg

    These two are autonomously romantic towards each other, but this I initiated with a specific purpose in mind

    Telling Heath was the first thing Lia did.

    Look how cute her bump is!
    7AtIq0s.jpeg

    They had a girl the randomiser named Tess (and I'm not mad about it). I'm not 100% sure of her toddler trait, but I'm pretty sure it was Silly.

    Heath is in the culinary career to become a mixologist, and he autonomously practices making drinks which is nice

    And I just thought these shots were really cute

    I actually have over 100 screenshots to go through, and I definitely have enough for at least one more update, maybe two. I'm actually going to go and play for a bit before dinner.

    I hope everyone is doing well x
  • MayaRose1138MayaRose1138 Posts: 1,506 Member
    Short update to come; they go on vacation and I took a whole update worth of pics so I'm not going to cut it in half or do an extra long one!
    @MayaRose1138 Your toddler pics are always so cute. I love seeing the kids doing everything in their every day life.

    Thank you! Toddlers are definitely my favourite stage! The garden inside is really helpful because that way I don't have to wait for the various seasons. I've just got to the point where Holly has spliced a cowberry and can now grow a cowplant, which I've never done before in any game.

    Btw, I'm contemplating whether to go with your method of choosing an heir :lol: I decided to try both Arthur and Mabel with cooking some grilled cheese and one of them caught fire :) So that one might end up being the heir because I can't choose any other way!!

    @JBAG521 - Great start! Tess is so cute! The house looks great too! Good luck to Lia with her money-earning - having tried Eco Living during the trial, it's hard!

    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.05

    Since the girls had the day off due to their birthday, Dove took them to the park in Oasis Springs (because it was warmer) to get started on their respective aspirations. Lyric and Alec came along with them.

    While they were there, they discovered that Leo had aged into an elder :(
    08-29-21_3-07-49-pm.png

    Back home, Mabel and Beatrice became best friends while their elder siblings worked on their homework.

    08-29-21_3-25-36-pm.png
    08-29-21_3-32-31-pm.png

    Dove and Holly went on a couple of dates to finish off Dove's Soulmate aspiration. And, of course, took advantage of being outside to play with their lightsabers that they totally didn't get during Dove's "dream" :lol:

    Ivy came over during Harvestfest.
    08-31-21_4-19-12-pm.png

    The family updated their portrait.
    08-29-21_5-15-48-pm.png

    Mabel became friends with Olivia (since she needs to know all the relatives in case she's the heir)
    08-31-21_2-45-28-pm.png

    For some reason, Lyric decided to visit at midnight. Maybe to let Dove know that Alec was now an elder.
    08-31-21_4-38-00-pm.png

    And finally, Kelley's daughter Kailee aged into a toddler.
    08-31-21_4-45-40-pm.png
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    I'll try to get another update soon. The family went on vacation to Henford-on-Bageley so that will pretty much cover the whole update!
  • OJennOJenn Posts: 8,283 Member
    @JBAG521 - Oh wow, I had no idea that lightning could strike the hot tub yikes! Pregnant Lia is s practically glowing ♥ I love that she got Heath's hair color though.

    @MayaRose1139 - I swear I almost always forget there is a park in Oasis Springs, everyone looked like they had a great time. The kids all seem like really good learners with their projects are they all doing well in school? Can't wait to see the vacation update!
  • debjameswhitedebjameswhite Posts: 1,580 Member
    @JBAG521 Woot! I'm glad to see you back with your sweet founders! haha I love seeing Heath and Lia in stuff that wasn't available when they were first created. That hot tub looks horrific! I'm glad no one was in it! Look how adorable they are in the kitchen...Oh good thing Lia fixed the hot tub! I love seeing them with their different careers :) I love the name Tess. It's really cute. In my run, Heath and Lia had 3 boys and 1 girl. I think so far Tess looks a lot like my heir Sawyer. Her brother from another universe :)

    @MayaRose1138 I laughed when I read that you were thinking of using the fire option to choose your heir! I love the pics of the girls in the park. They're really cute. I love the look on their faces. I really love Mabel's hair.

    It's the best park for getting the kids playful if they have the Rambunctious Scamp aspiration. And there's usually a fair number of people there, including kids, even on a school day :smirk: All my sims tend to do well in school because I make them :lol: I haven't tried a hands-off approach yet. Vacation update coming!

    I wasn't originally going to use fire, because Lyric was the only one in her generation who didn't catch fire before adulthood, but I can't figure out any way of fairly deciding who is going to be heir! Mabel's hair came with Cottage Living, I think, and I adore it! In fact, there's a lot of CAS stuff I like about that pack :smiley:

    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.06

    The weekend after the younger twins aged up, the family went on holiday to the charming village of Henford-on-Bageley (or however it's spelled!). The children were immediately interested in the animals there.

    09-01-21_3-10-36-pm.png
    09-01-21_3-11-05-pm.png

    Dove liked the llama!
    09-01-21_3-32-40-pm.png

    They went into town for dinner but found out that the pub didn't serve children food, so Holly went to get some ingredients while the children did their homework.
    09-01-21_3-18-17-pm.png
    09-01-21_3-19-03-pm.png

    Agatha didn't have everything in stock, so Holly ordered a grocery delivery. Then she made everyone Beef Wellington for dinner.
    09-01-21_3-42-34-pm.png
    09-01-21_3-43-44-pm.png
    09-01-21_3-46-55-pm.png

    The next morning, Mabel tried her hand at cross-stitching. It didn't always go well!
    09-01-21_3-54-05-pm.png
    09-01-21_3-56-47-pm.png

    Dove tried to cook a group meal but only Nellie was able to help.
    09-01-21_5-07-16-pm.png

    Then the kids played outside some more, getting more acquainted with the animals.

    A wild fox was seen but fortunately didn't come too close.
    09-01-21_5-13-34-pm.png

    During the afternoon, the family visited their neighbours. Sara Gonzales lives with her daughter Miranda and two foster sons, Cohen Breen and Hugh Paulson. Look at Mabel's expression as she's looking at Cohen in the third pic :love:

    Holly tried her hand at entering the Fruit competition with an apple pie but didn't get anything, not even a participation ribbon :disappointed:
    09-01-21_7-23-07-pm.png[img][/img]
    Lyric was visiting the village too so Dove used the time to catch up on all the gossip.
    09-01-21_7-22-18-pm.png


    And then it was time to go home. Overall, a fun introduction to the new village and EP :smiley:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I quite enjoyed playing with the new pack. I didn't have time to fully get immersed but it was fun getting the sims to become friendly with the animals. I'm very disappointed that Holly's entry apparently didn't count :disappointed: Hopefully the next update will get Arthur and Nellie to teens!!

    Chapter 37: Wedding

    Shortly after completing his climb of Mt. Komorebi, Finley completed his aspiration. It was time to settle down. There was a lot of talking, pictures I have to share because they crack me up, and then a wedding.

    @MayaRose1139 - Henford-on-Bagley is such a cute little town, I have been soooooo tempted to add it to the challenge as an optional town. Everyone looks like they had such a great time there with all the animals ♥

    @Debjameswhite - Finley and Charlotte make such a cute couple ♥ it even looks like some guest sat down at the wedding! Can't wait to see their life together.

    Family Tree

    It was a tough choice between the two boys that Dory had but I finally ended up picking Leo to be the heir
    aed64115f3.jpg

    With the updates to the spa day pack Dory was the first in line to get a makeover and take a day to relax
    8c474191c3.jpg

    24529649f1.jpg

    Leo and his big brother Aquarius have a really strong bond and they are best friends now
    472fb8c95d.jpg

    All that time spent watching his mom cooking has really paid off, Leo loves to cooking as much as Dory
    85d39fb26f.jpg

    f2109b6c5b.jpg

    Even his mom approves of his dishes, plus it's nice that she has someone to help with the cooking now
    92ef522c52.jpg

    But all good things must come to an end and soon Leo was applying to college
    f4daf224cb.jpg

    He aged up with some pretty great traits too
    c37705ab35.png

    Luckily the acceptance letter came soon and the world was his oyster!
    7143e19ab4.png

    4c6d037df3.png

    This is his happy dance! And with art as his primary focus he chose Brichester
    651ff232fd.jpg

    180ddc1628.jpg

    He got a full ride and even joined the soccer team, but ultimately ended up moving into his own apartment.
    402d83c5ca.png

    38f32763d5.png

    The apartment is nice and spacious and he doesn't have to worry about roommates, this is the life

    Yes, add it to the list! It would certainly be a challenge to create all those cottages!! Yep, everyone enjoyed the time away, although I really didn't get too much of a chance to explore everything over one weekend. I've created my own Cottage Living challenge though and am beta testing it, and although it's hard, especially without Eco Living to make being off-the-grid easier, it's been fun!

    Leo is a good choice, although either one of them would have been great! The apartment looks good - is it in Evergreen Harbour or one closer to the university? Looking forward to seeing how Leo goes with his course and whether he discovers the love of his life there :lol:

    For some reason, you can't get children to buy food from the type of bar that is at the pub there :shrug:. However, I have since discovered that your sims can use the small kitchen to cook food, so that would be a way of getting around the lack of buyable food. As I said above, I've created my own challenge using that pack. My founding sim is two weeks in and still living in a tent but at least her two toddlers have an actual bedroom :lol:

    Great wedding! I take it those were the triplet toddlers running around? It's weird that your family has had triplets two generations running :lol:. Are we going to get officially introduced to them?

    Raiden still drops in every day and is often recruited to help with homework (which I've found is an excellent way to make friends with an adult for the social aspiration).

    The family adopted some rabbits - this is Dove with Clover.

    Winterfest rolled around again, so it's been a year since Dove's proposal to Holly. Plenty of decorating the tree and opening presents!

    The only thing that marred the day was Holly's garden catching fire (those stupid heaters!). Fortunately, they were able to put it out without too much damage.

    Still, that didn't stop them from hosting a family get-together. Everyone was invited and only Leo, Ivy, Michaela and Brant didn't turn up. The blonde toddler is Ivy's granddaughter, Kailee.

    Holly demonstrated an interesting new ability...

    Father Winter took his time to get there but all the kids ended up with presents.

    09-05-21_2-44-09-pm.png

    The next day was Arthur and Nellie's teen birthdays! Somehow I missed getting Nellie's birthday cake but at least I got one :lol:. Arthur rolled the Neat trait, the Renaissance Sim aspiration and the Vet hobby. Nellie rolled the Genius trait, the City Native aspiration, and the Baking hobby.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Both Arthur and Nellie's face/eye/nose shape all come from Holly, and Nellie's mouth shape is also Holly's. Basically, she inherited all the colours from one parent and the shapes from the other :lol:. Arthur's is a little more of a mix but also is exactly the same as Mabel and Beatrice (except for eye shape). If the three of them had been born together, they would be almost identical triplets!

    I hope to get the next update out soon with the vacation to Mt Komorebi and the girls' teen birthday. Then you can all give your opinion on who should be heir :sweat_smile:

    Rebuild Evergreen Harbor: Gen 5

    Hey hey hey! Once again, it's been far too long since my last update. I've been attempting a Pinstar legacy and playing casually in themed save files (my fav so far is Another Plumbob's Uberhood based on Sims 2). I did play my rebuild save for a bit today though, so here's a short update! We're still on Gen 5 in Evergreen Harbor...
    1.png

    The first thing I did was a little house reno. I'm not a huge fan of the new Kits (my greedy self wants real packs, not these tiny kits lol), but I do really love the Industrial Loft Kit, so I just had to use it :sweat_smile:
    5.png

    6.png

    7.png

    My current heir is Owen Greene, an aspiring Extreme Sports Enthusiast with a career in social media. He hasn't done a lot of "extreme sports" since he moved back to Evergreen Harbor, nor has he worked on his rocket science hobby whatsoever :sweat_smile: , but he is doing well in his social media career!
    8.png

    He's a 2 or 3 star celeb and has the video/influencer celeb perks, so he has to record himself doing random things (like fishing) to maintain his celeb status. It took me WAAAY too long to find a "fishing hole" in Evergreen Harbor...when it was literally right next to their house the whole time :sweat_smile:
    9.png

    I hope to send him back to Mt Komorebi when I don't have toddler(s) in the house, but until then he's working on his rock climbing skill at the local gym. I swear I ran into the whole extended family there :lol: The girl pictured is evil vampire Cleo's daughter (who I recently uploaded to the gallery if anyone wants her).
    10.png

    Pictured here is Augustus Greene (gen 4 oops baby, Owen's cool uncle) and Hayes Greene (grandson of gen 3 spare Blaze Greene, son of gen 4 cousin Nicole Greene). This family is getting huge & out of control lol
    11.png

    Owen is also FINALLY working on fabrication! Thaddeus doesn't have much time left, so I want him to pass on as much fabrication knowledge
    as possible before he passes.
    12.png

    It's going.....as one would expect :lol: (If only he were recording that for social media!)
    13.png

    He's ALSO basically a single parent, because Rosalie hates children and refuses to have anything to do with their toddler. I don't really blame her as she's currently pregnant (poor thing), and Lily is clingy - a Hates-Children sim's worst nightmare :sweat_smile:
    14.png

    Plus Owen seems to really like being a dad :blush:
    15.png

    Rosalie spends most of her time outside, trying to find peace & quiet in her flower arranging. She's still only level 4 or 5 in her career sadly, not making very quick progress with her tiny backyard garden :confused:
    16.png

    By her third trimester, she had a full-on mental breakdown. Lily kept pestering her with nonsense questions, and Rosalie lost it. Them pregnancy hormones are no joke...
    17.png

    Thankfully(?) it resulted in Rosalie going into labor - at least she won't have a parasite invading her body anymore... :grimace: Sadly, Lily was in a terrible mood from her mom's meltdown annnd...
    19.png

    She got TWO siblings...that's right, we had TWINS :astonished: Lord help me.
    20.png

    They were straight-up the neediest babies I've ever had in-game. I aged them up after a day because I just couldn't handle it anymore. And of course neither one is blonde :bawling: I'm not gonna torture Rosalie with another pregnancy, so hopefully they don't end up being total Owen clones. The boy is Forest and he got the Inquisitive trait (already picked my favorite lol), and the girl is Fern and she got the Clingy trait...of course *insert eye roll emoji*
    21.png22.png

    I'm pretty behind on reading ya'lls updates, but I'll try to come back for comments soon!

    @OJenn I don't know why, but I love seeing the new packs in updates from everyone before I try them. I loved seeing Dory's new manicure! I love how she looks just sitting back in that chair. Oh I like Leo's traits too. I like that he's going for art! The apartment looks very cozy!

    @MayaRose1138 I love the vacation pictures. Isn't it fun when your sim looks right at you? haha! Ooo that's good to know about getting friendly with adults! How do you get them to help? Do the kids just ask? The mushroom chairs are adorable! Oh no! That's terrible about the garden! I hope you didn't lose any important plants! The kids look great. Nellie makes me think of Lia. I think I'm most in love with Mabel though.

    @JordanNicoleJJ Woot! So happy to see you. That house is so cute. I agree, I am also not a big fan of the kits. I did get that industrial one too though. So far the only ones I have gotten are the kitchen one and the industrial one. I think I do want those new clothing ones though. Not the throwback fit kit one. I lived that and have no desire to go back. I love the house! The dark colors are so good. You just made me realize I don't think I've ever fished in Evergreen harbor! I don't even recognize where Owen is! My sims tend to have the same experience as Owen at the gym. Somehow his entire family knows he's there and they show up! It's good he likes being a dad since Rosalie really doesn't like being a mom! Poor thing. Then twins. Whoa...Forest is my favorite so far too. I like his name and his inquisitive nature!!

    After proving to his brother that something was going on around town Bryan went around and did some research and came up with an antidote. Bryan proved to Lyle that he was part of it. Lyle came to his senses and decided to help Bryan with defeating the monster in the basement of the secret base. Lyle helped Bryan recruit some volunteers to help fight the monster. After defeating the monster both Bryan and Lyle ended up dating and marrying volunteers who helped them defeat the monster. Lyle ended up marrying Lily Feng and within a week they were expecting their first child.

    Bryan married Nadia Kimball and they were soon expecting their first child as well.

    When it came to saving the town and expanding their families the Collins brothers seemed to move fast. Bryan and Nadia hit it off fast, at first they thought it was just because they saved the town together but they ended up having a real connection.

    Lyle and Lily hit it off a little slower. Lily was just looking for someone who would look good on her arm and at first, Lyle was a perfect match.
    But after seeing him for a week Lily started to see that good looks weren't the most important thing to her.

    Nadia and Bryan were excited to be welcoming their first child, but when it came to Lyle and Lily excitement is a word I wouldn't use. Lyle was looking forward to having a baby but after marrying so quickly Lyle found out the Lily hates children and is not looking forward to a screaming bundle of joy let alone two of them around the house. Nadia started to show right away while Lily took a little longer to show.

    "Nadia, I hope you're only having one baby and not twins that's all we need is three screaming bundles of joy in this house," sneered Lily.
    51584185152_7d2c0ab4c4_k.jpg09-29-21_12-53-41 PM by Savannah To, on Flickr

    The day finally came for Lily to give birth she had a little girl who Lyle and Lily named Genesis. about twelve hours after Lily had Genesis Nadia had gone into labor and soon after she had given birth to a little boy who Bryan and Nadia named Maverick. After giving birth Lily changed her mind about children, she still disliked them but her niece and nephew were an exception.

Do the kids just ask? The mushroom chairs are adorable! Oh no! That's terrible about the garden! I hope you didn't lose any important plants! The kids look great. Nellie makes me think of Lia. I think I'm most in love with Mabel though.

    That makes one vote for Arthur and one vote for Mabel so far :lol:! With getting adults to help with homework, just get the kid to be friendly with them a few times before or as they start their homework, then after a little while, the option to 'ask for help with homework' will come up. Click on that, then let the child finish their homework and by that time, they should be friends or maybe even good friends with the adult. So all four of this gen's kids are friends with their cousin Raiden :lol:. No, no important plants were lost fortunately. Holly has even been able to grow a Cowberry but the problem is, she hasn't really got room to actually grow a Cowplant! I'm still trying to work out whether to try and do that before the next gen starts!

    @JordanNicoleJJ - Poor Rosalie - three babies/toddlers! All of the toddlers are cute, and Forest looks like he'll be a good choice for heir. I feel for you not getting a blonde heir though; I was lucky that both my choices are blonde this gen because there's no blonde spouses for at least the next two generations!!

    @Army008 - wow, two babies at once - your family is going to have fun! It'll be interesting to see which brother will father the heir.

    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.08

    After their birthdays, Arthur and Mabel got their rooms updated (sorry for the quality!)

    And it's time to holiday in Mt Komorebi again! Everyone had a go at skiing or snowboarding...

    09-12-21_4-41-59-pm.png

    The next morning was Mabel and Beatrice's teen birthdays!! Mabel rolled the Bookworm trait, the Nerd Brain aspiration and the Programming skill. Beatrice rolled the Hates Children trait, the Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration and the Skating skill. The only difference in features is their eyebrows!

    I don't know why everyone seemed to be congregated in the bathroom to watch Arthur fix the sink but okay...
    09-13-21_4-48-46-pm.png

    Everyone went back to hit the slopes but Arthur and Mabel decided they really didn't like that so they went climbing instead.

    09-13-21_5-00-55-pm.png
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    So, all the kids are now teens! It's still narrowed down to Arthur - who has rolled the Scientist career (that he won't be able to start until he's done all the jobs necessary for his aspiration) - and Mabel, who rolled the Doctor career, same as Beatrice (they'll be working in the same place!).
    Here are some comparisons for genetic purposes: each child with their parents first, then all four teens.

    @JordanNicoleJJ - I almost wept with Rosalie at the end of the update there after seeing the twins and I love babies. But that is a lot of little ones running omg, I am so glad the kiddos have Owen there to nurture them. Maybe once they are all teens mom will come around :lol:

    @Army008 - Aww such a sweet story, I am glad the brothers were able to come together to save the town ♥

    @MayaRose1138 - Siblings that skill together are so cute, I love it. And I absolutely adore the family photos in the house. I think I am still really loving Mabel she seems like a good blend of her parents.
