    So after a very tiring exercise of updating all the townies (seriously why am I like this :lol: ) the family tree is updated!
    Leo is really embracing college life and despite not living on campus he does his best to attend any and all events when he can

    Back at home, there are always people over like his brother and cousins. And since he takes after his mom in the kitchen, his place always smells heavenly

    Living alone has its perks, one of them being a quiet time for studying and no annoying roommates to bother him

    And space for other family hobbies as well

    Leo is really into sports and often goes jogging before his games, that where he met Iza Price <3

    It took no time for these to fall head over heels for one another, they are completely smitten

    Life was going so well for Leo and soon enough it was time for graduation and our boy was all smiles

    I'll come back later for comments but I just wanted to say that I have uploaded the gen 3 household to the Gallery. You can find them under MayaRose1138, Shipley, or possibly #RebuildingWorldsVol2. Arthur and Nellie have just aged to YA whereas Mabel and Beatrice are both teens.

    @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.

    Thank you! All the siblings are really close; they spend a lot of free time talking to each other, so that’s good. I’m really liking the family photos but I figured out, you can’t take them with you unless you take the whole household because they can’t be put in a personal inventory 😞. So I just have to take pictures of the pictures 🤣. I’m trying to get the majority of the family tree in pairs though, so by the time I get to the end of the challenge, there’ll be a whole basement full of photos! I’m going to have to name them all and put their generations on them or I’ll get really lost! Maybe I shouldn’t have picked the largest size...

    I’ve finally picked an heir! I was leaning towards Mabel but when both you and @debjameswhite said you liked Mabel too, that cemented it. So I’ve played through until the day before her YA birthday and now just have to get the new house furnished. I built it a couple of months ago but didn’t put anything in it 😆.

    Looks like your Leo is having a good time at Uni. Being away from home in a new place and a budding romance - fun times!

    Incidentally, I was looking forward in the gene pool for Brindleton now I’m nearly ready to start working on gen 5 and found two links that didn’t work. Gen 6’s Darwin and gen 7’s Jordyn both come up with error messages. Replace one of them with a red or blonde-haired sim - there are a lot of brown and black-haired mates but not many of other colours 🤣. There are only three with blonde hair coming up and two with auburn, meanwhile there are 8 with black hair and 9 with brown. I have the mate from the gene pool picked out for the next gen and I definitely need a male heir 😆.

    Wow, it's been seriously quiet on here for a while so here's another update!
    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.09

    Updated family photo now that the kids are all teens.
    09-13-21_5-36-51-pm.png

    After their holiday, it was time for Arthur and Mabel to see how well they got on with their potential spouses (these pics cover several days). Arthur and Miranda didn't start off so well, with Miranda insulting Honey, but then they recovered.

    Mabel and Cohen's courtship went a lot more smoothly...

    In between the romancing, family life went on as normal. Arthur and Nellie invited over cousins Brant and Olivia for their family tree portrait.
    09-21-21_2-01-29-pm.png
    09-21-21_2-03-28-pm.png

    Dove achieved level 10 in the Secret Agent career (which means she's a Super Double Agent or something!)
    09-21-21_2-39-14-pm.png

    Food time and homework time are always good times to socialise. Arthur has a early morning barista job, that's why he's never there at breakfast.

    Only days before Brant turns YA, Lark and Luna are expecting their second son.
    09-24-21_4-50-26-pm.png

    Dove went to visit her father, Alec, who only had a few more days left :disappointed:
    09-24-21_5-24-22-pm.png

    And finally, some little cousins. Daphne, daughter of Elijah, granddaughter of Ivy. Elijah got married to Charlene Ngata (not Daphne's mother) and took Daphne to go live with her in Sulani.
    09-21-21_3-06-16-pm.png

    Liam, son of Xavier, grandson of Leo.
    09-25-21_1-42-59-pm.png

    And Sheldon and Audrey, twin children for Kit and more grandchildren for Lyric and Alec.
    09-25-21_1-44-09-pm.png
    09-25-21_1-44-50-pm.png
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lark and Luna had a little boy, Ramon, and cousin Kelley had second girl, Mayra. The family tree certainly is growing but not uncontrollably at the moment :smiley:
    I should have about two more updates to go for this generation, then I'll get started on Mabel's. I've played through a bit of that generation already - boy, that Doctor career can be difficult to get promotions in. If you can't narrow down the diagnosis and pick the wrong one, job performance goes way down and it takes ages to get back up! And I've determined that I can't have any toddlers go to 'daycare' at the hospital, so there may be a few days I have to send Mabel on her own.
    And what's the bet that if I really want a boy for the next generation, I either won't get one or he'll be a clone of one of his parents :lol:

    @MayaRose1138 - Seeing the family photo of everyone reminds me that there is a good mix of genetics this generation. Even if I am team Mabel ♥ Oh boy the visits with the potential mates looked spicy to start :lol: But it looks like Arthur and Miranda were able to fall for each other eventually. Maybe it was the teen mood swings. Good thing Mabel had better luck. The little cousins are adorable and Liam is probably my favorite out of that group.
    Incidentally, I was looking forward in the gene pool for Brindleton now I’m nearly ready to start working on gen 5 and found two links that didn’t work. Gen 6’s Darwin and gen 7’s Jordyn both come up with error messages.

I have the mate from the gene pool picked out for the next gen and I definitely need a male heir 😆.

    Sorry for the delay, the life of a toddler mom is always busy :lol: I have updated both mates for Gen 6 & 7 in Brindleton Bay ♥ I always find this tends to happen as we get further into the challenge for some reason. I've been tempted on more than one occasion to just make a bunch of sims myself for the entire genepool :lol:

    My kiddo is napping now so I am going to try and squeeze out an update in the next hour or so, see you all soon!

    P.S. Has anyone downloaded the new EA app thing (similar to Origin)?

    With an art degree to his name and college behind him Leo was more than looking forward to the next chapter of his life.
    d3660443a6.jpg

    And there was something very important that he had been meaning to do

    The couple decided to move in together to prep for the wedding and of course to get to know the potential in-laws.
    cb6ed89a47.jpg

    Their families seemed to get along really well and Dory found she had a lot in common with Iza's father.
    1ad85521d6.jpg

    Pop Price really seemed to like Leo as well, Iza couldn't be happier
    f7005af5ae.jpg

    They decided to push the wedding back until after the new year due to the weather but they enjoyed their time together just the two of them

    walks in silently

    Hello again <3
    I've just realized I haven't been here since the middle of May :(
    It's been a few crazy months for me and so much has happened... I even played in between but didn't have the time to post anything. I basically moved places, started a new job, met new people, caught covid,... It's been insane on my end. But all is better now and I hope I'll be back more regularly now <3

    I think I have a lot to post and I will check my folder with the screenshots :) Be prepared for some action with Carly ;D

    Hope you guys are all okay <3

    I'm actually not sure if I posted this already but here you go. Just take it as a short "where we left off" if I did post this before :)

    Generation 3
    Chapter 8

    Everyone is still very much into their partner. Although engaged, Finn and his fiance haven't eloped yet.
    aIgEx8n.png
    lnKH3kO.png
    8Q1huTn.png

    Despite being parents to little Nico and living apart, Soren and Quinn still found time for each other.
    6La83E1.png
    V9imktx.png

    Molly loved their robo-vacuumer. She always hops on there as soon as it starts cleaning.
    85Fpt87.png

    After what felt like an eternity, Nico aged into a toddler.
    jUzjmyv.png
    Fz4Ss9N.png

    He got a little makeover.
    cas bild

    Since Quinn still had to work on her education and go to school, both grandparents tried to spend time with their grandchild.
    aJDRY68.png
    143FDW8.png
    eHlQdLz.png
    afYxa5A.png

    Quinn tried her best to handle school and her newborn but sometimes she was simply exhausted.
    Y2rdtoP.png
    WaN0WBc.png
    73OkRiX.png

    Then, it was finally time for the twins to age into YAs.
    vvKge3q.png
    kHOQHlU.png

    Finn decided to move in with his fiance (to her parent's house because it is huge!)
    2CRFFp6.png

    Soren still came over regularly but Quinn feared he would end their relationship once she was a YA.
    So when he came over on her birthday, she was uncertain what he would do.
    IWKOp1y.png

    Of course she told him her greatest fear. She didn't want to be a single mother, raising a child on her own.
    RHE0UXC.png

    And no, Soren had other plans. He married her right then and there. They didn't even want a big ceremony or fancy clothes.
    aFt9bmb.png

    Soren entered the police academy, same as Finn, as he needed a proper job with enough income. While he is saving money for his little family, he moved in with Quinn's family to be closer to his son.
    Finn and Cierra are engaged but I have no idea if they're ever going to get married or not. Let's see what MCCC will do to them.
    Quinn still wants to be a Civic Planner, so she started working in this field.

    Before I was able to switch households, I've got the notification that Rose had died :( Of course I went straight to the other household. Can't risk losing my (teen) heir.

    @Wentcrazy - It's quite alright ♥ I think it's safe to say this last year (maybe two) has been a bit crazy for most people. I am glad to hear that things are going better for you and I definitely hope you are feeling ok too.

    It's nice to see Quinn again, I love her. It is a good thing she has such great parents to help out with the littles. She seems like a good mom even with everything she has going on. Aww I am so happy to see Soren wanted to make things official, I'm excited to see their lives together ♥

    Hey ya'll, sorry I haven't been active again. I had a biopsy done last week, and it detected pre-cancerous cells. I'm supposed to have another (more extensive) biopsy in December to try to remove it, and I'm trying to get back into therapy cause my anxiety is through the roof. I may be MIA for awhile longer, or I may need a distraction and start posting again, Idk yet. I'll keep you guys updated as I figure things out! :grimace:

    @Ojenn - Yay, a wedding! Looks like it went as well as any sim wedding could!! Looking forward to seeing their little nooboos soon!

    Thank you for updating those potential spouses; they look pretty good :) I definitely have the gen 5 spouse all picked out and surprisingly, I also have the heir picked out already too :smirk:.

    @Wentcrazy - wow, a lot going on there! Good that the twins have aged up and got married, and little Nico looks cute. Now it's time for the heir to get her turn!!

    @JordanNicoleJJ - that's not good news but hopefully it was caught early and you'll be alright. Sending positive thoughts your way!

    Rebuilding Brindleton Bay Gen 3.10

    Love Day came around again and this time, two of the teens had someone to spend time with. Cohen came around for a date with Mabel and brought a rose with him (awww). Then they went bowling, where they met up with Brant and Olivia, who are part of a team.

    Arthur and Miranda also went bowling but there are less pics of them because of the lighting.
    09-25-21_2-33-35-pm.png

    According to @debjameswhite's theory of heirship, this was the moment when I decided that Mabel would be heir. Note that Arthur never puts down his coffee mug!!

    09-25-21_4-13-39-pm.png

    Then it was time to head off for a weekend in Granite Falls! Beatrice has the Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration so off they went to see if she could get any of it done. Arthur did something to the toilet almost as soon as they arrived!
    09-25-21_5-10-10-pm.png

    The next couple of days were spent on various activities...

    09-25-21_4-47-44-pm.png

    Dove got the news that her uncle Leo died while they were away so she was sad for some time. Fortunately, her family helped to keep her occupied.
    09-25-21_5-23-28-pm.png
    09-25-21_5-03-22-pm.png

    Dove and Mabel went around to visit Brooke and Raidan as soon as they got home.
    09-25-21_5-27-31-pm.png
    09-25-21_5-27-47-pm.png

    Mabel learnt a cross-stitch pattern from her rabbit friends.
    10-03-21_4-54-15-pm.png
    10-03-21_4-56-17-pm.png

    Not long after the news that Xavier and his wife Rylie were having a baby, Dove got the news that her father Alec had passed away on her adult birthday :disappointed:. She went around to comfort Lyric and to also grab the urn (I'm attempting to keep the family tree intact by collecting the urns. Unfortunately, I couldn't find Ivy's husband, Amos, at their place so I don't know where he is.)
    10-15-21_2-51-58-pm.png
    10-15-21_2-52-16-pm.png

    Lark was running by too, so Dove comforted her too.
    10-15-21_6-54-44-pm.png

    In happier news, Lark's son Ramon and Kelley's daughter Mayra aged up into toddlers (Kelley is Dove's 1st cousin).
    10-15-21_2-30-06-pm.png
    10-15-21_2-33-37-pm.png

    And the family tree portraits were updated with photos of the Gen 4 siblings.
    10-03-21_5-16-44-pm.png
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    There were three deaths over four days: Leo, then Amos and finally Alec. Lyric won't be going anywhere for a while because she completed the Bodybuilder aspiration, just like Dove did. She will move in with Lark once Arthur and Nellie age up, and Arthur will take over the Gen 2 house. Nellie will move to San Myshuno because of her aspiration, and Beatrice will remain with Dove and Holly, and eventually take over the Gen 3 house. Mabel will be moving to the Gen 4 house, which is lovely if I do say so myself :smiley:.

    Oh no, I hope you can work with your healthcare team to get things planned out, wishing you all the best ♥

    @MayaRose1138 - So happy that Mabel is heir, I love her. Aww poor Dove, I am glad she has her family by her side. She still looks great as an elder.

    Hey guys, just wanted to check in cause you're all so important to me. I love what this story challenge has become for me. That said, I've had several challenges at home recently the climax being the death of my mother. I remember when my Dad died playing this game with you guys brought me so much comfort but this time I'm not finding comfort in much. I'll be back, but it's just going to take some time this go around.

    Hey ya'll sorry it's been a while since my last post, it's been all holiday prep and general madness here in my house. For us that still means lots of long distance calls and video chatting as we just are not financially able to visit family and my husband works in retail so we can't get away to go :( But I have had some intermittent play sessions, here is hoping its not too disjointed :lol:

    After their raining day wedding, Leo and Iza were ready to start their new life together.
    6daf556b20.jpg

    Since Leo worked hard to get his Fine Art Degree he really wanted to get in a good career. So he became an Interior Designer. And while I enjoyed the aspect of it I think I would have had more fun doing this with a single sim who didn't have a family. (I might just need more time with it. Which is saying something because this is what I do in real life :lol: ) 3e64e430b1.jpg

    Nevertheless, Leo did well in his career and had happy clients
    98d20fdfc3.jpg

    It wasn't long after he and Iza said I do that they got a little surprise
    6e49933e01.jpg

    They couldn't have been happier to expand their family
    2be2dce02e.jpg

    a388959db4.jpg

    Iza wasted almost no time telling everyone in the family. Her Mother-In-Law, Dory, was the first to get the news
    0a6d2dda5b.jpg

    Eventually they shared the news with everyone else as well with a little announcement party
    d32063fd81.jpg

    Leo spend the next few days readying the nursery, it used to be his painting space but he was fine with taking up a small corner
    8a841835cc.jpg

    Iza was loving the extra attention from Leo, he has always been affectionate towards her but he would not let her move a muscle without a massage first ♥
    9bf149469f.jpg

    Finally they were able to break to the news to Iza's dad, Pops. Luckily he was just as excited
