    Thank you @lisa17ann , that makes it slightly less embarrassing :blush:

    @rosemow and thank you both for the well wishes. The little guy has had a fever and a bad cough. He needs to sleep to get rid of the fever, but the cough is keeping him (and us) awake.. :'( The fever seems to have broken now though, but still coughing. Hopefully better tomorrow :)

    His brother brought home some bug from kindergarden, but because he's a little baby with a weak immune system he just can't handle it. Big brother only has a little bit of a cold. The little one is completely knocked out.. hehe.

    Family Get Away
    is my Newest Build and my entry for the Build&Share Challenge. I haven't participated in Build&Share for quite sometime and found it a challenge to be sure! haha. You can find it HERE if your interested in joining in your self :) A footprint was provided for this build and a budget of 125k it's always hard for me to stay in budget...But, all in all I think it turned out okay and I did have fun trying to work my own vision around the original footprint.
    You can download Family Get Away HERE

    Slideshow of the build HERE

    My write up for my entry:
    I decided to keep the rooms rather small in my entry as I wanted the family to spend most of their days and nights outside enjoy the sunshine and beautiful mountain views. Which can be done from the green lawn of their own back garden or from 4 different outdoor living areas. The house comprises of 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The first bedroom is a master suite, and although it’s small it has an en-suite bathroom and a rather large balcony for playing chess and relaxing on. The balconies is covered but, open in the center so Kaye and Kieran can snuggle up and watch the stars at night after the kids go to bed. There is a bedroom for teen Kaiden and has a small balcony that faces the front of the property. I purposely didn’t fill his room with an insect collection as I thought his major collection would be at the families’ normal home. The last bedroom is for the twin toddlers that has a fun animals theme in greens and white. There is also a family bathroom and hallway on the 2nd floor.
    On the ground floor you will find an entry that leads through an archway into the open plan living room, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen is open to the dining are as well, so that the children can be watched while Kaye is cooking. The kitchen is well equipped for Kaye it even has a built in wine fridge. There is also a ¾ bath on the ground floor. From the dining room you can make your way out to the family games patio. It’s covered to give shade on those hot desert days and has a card table and dart board. From the living room you can make your way out to the covered reading patio (aka the reading nook) where you also have access to a painting easel. To the back there are lots of outside activates for the family to enjoy while on vacation. A little BBQ area, fishing pond, sandbox, and a fire pit with guitar for campfire songs, horseshoe pit, and monkey bars. It’s fenced in to keep the smallest family members safe from wondering into the road. The landscaping to the front is slightly more formal then the landscaping in the back. In the back the flower beds are spilling over with sunny flowers in colors of yellows, red, and oranges. I tried to give the exterior of the house a traditional look. On the interiors I mixed traditional and slightly more modern furnishings.

    I only just realized I didn't add a potty for the toddlers. :o Opps lol That can be easily fixed by anyone who downloads it and I'm sure there are plenty of places to put one or two lol

    Thanks for looking and Happy Simming everyone! :)

    Here is my unofficial entry for this rooms challenge I couldn't pass it up as I have a serious love for @Cbear13 and her many animals. Snow being on of my favorites. I even snap chat with him haha so here it is...I hope Snow like's his room even though he has to share it with the rest of the family!

    Snow’s Sanctuary
    I tried to keep a lot of the room white so snow's hair wouldn't be so noticeable when he sheds. Cbear is going to have to make sure her partner takes his boots off outside before coming in the house and tracking in mud! Or he will face the consequences! :D I have a few furry snuggle rugs for Snow to lay on and take his after meal naps. I know Cbear use to do shows with her horses so I have a small horse statue on the book shelf and some ribbons hanging behind her desk. I put plenty of toys around the living room and garden for Snow to play with and even "Mittens" too, if Snow feels like sharing. :p I think I recall Cbear saying she had fish so I put a small fish bowl in the room as well. She also has her own business making and selling candles so the room is filled with candles. Which I'm sure makes Snow feel more at home. And, since we are living in a world of total fantasy I added a massage chair in the hopes that her partner might give her a hand and foot massage lol Good luck with that @Cbear13 :D

    Cbear is there sitting on the couch snap chatting with me after giving snow a big breakfast of greens and fruits. You'll also notice her partners cat "Sos" sitting on the couch. (I know what kind of name is that for a cat?! I call her mittens lol)

    Cbear hard at work doing some judging...Or maybe shes goofing off and building? who knows...

    A larger shot of the room and Snow enjoying his yummy home grown breakfast.

    In the Garden Cbear is enjoying reading a book while Snow digs holes, eats grass, and just generally acts cheeky!

    Here is another view of the garden and the veggie patch where a lot of Snow's food is grown. There is also a lemon tree to give a bit of shade in the sitting area. And, once it gives fruits will be put to good use making many kinds of baked goods and lemon aid.

    I'm adding this extra picture in memory of Snow's bunny brother Jet who passed away. :'( He was the sweetest little bunny and I know Cbear misses him as do I. <3

    Family Get Away is the perfect retreat, very grand and luxurious architecture with amazing landscaping, love how you've designed the rear garden and the sandpit is awesome. Stunning interiors, fantastic idea to build the wine fridge into the wall :)
    Wow, Snow's Sanctuary is a real beauty, what a wonderful room, love how you've provided Snow with fruit and veggies :)

    The furnishing of Snow's Sanctuary looks very nice! :) He will enjoy spending time both indoors and outside. The blue/green and white colour scheme of the interior looks very nice. It is nice that you have added items such as the candles, fish bowl and horse statue to reflect the real life of Cbear. The tribute wall to Jet is very special <3 It is a very caring and thoughtful touch, and that nook area will be especially treasured by Cbear and Snow. The toys through the room will be fun for Snow to play with ! Very nice study desk nook for Cbear to enjoy using the computer there to do the judging, and watch Snow playing at the same time. The freezer bunny snowglobe is a great touch on the desk table. The plants look great in the room, helping Smow to feel that parts of the outdoors are inside. The home breakfast meal for Snow looks very great! It looks cute how you have set up the meal and placed Snow there! The outdoors garden area looks so pretty! The floral hedging, flowers on the ground , flowers shelving and the flowers in the pots look so very nice! The harvestable plants look great! It is nice that a lemon tree is growing in the room, The water fountain and patterned floor area in the middle of the room is very nice! The ducks are cute in the water! Cbear will enjoy sitting resting on the seating there in the sunshine, having a drink from the drinks tray whilst Snow has fun playing! The string lights look pretty! Nice trellis and greenery columns feature over the outdoors door.
    Snow will enjoy his room! :)

    @masajo Thank you so very much for your lovely comments on Family Get Away that certainly brought a smile to my face as did your comments on my room for Snow. I put a lot of thought into it and without sounding full of my self (I hope :s ) I'm very happy with how the room turned out! :)<3

    And, I always appreciate the time you take to leave such nice comments on my creations @rosemow as always thank you very much! :)<3

    Edit: I had all kinds of errors and forgot to tag masajo in the comment because when I was typing it on my phone last night I kept falling asleep and waking up hahah I did finally end up posting it but, it didn't make as much sense as I would have liked haha! :D

    Awww @Corwim that is so sweet of you to say! I have to admit I love to build but am always hoping to improve and don't always feel confident when building less traditional builds but, I have fun every time! And, that's what really counts to me. It's a really pleasure to be part of this building community with all you other wonderful builders who are so generous, kind, and inspiring! Happy Simming to you!! :)

    I love your latest builds! Family Getaway makes me long for a vacation myself! But my favorite is the big fat cat sitting on the sofa in the beautiful Snow's Sanctuary. :smiley:

    HAHAHA!! @StSciurus I can't resist a big fat cat! :D I'm a total animal lover so that room was fun for me. I'm with you I could use a vacation too somewhere lovely and warm, with lots of sun. Like back home in California with my family! I Skype with my mom a couple times a week and she is always rubbing in how warm it is there. She's lucky I'm so far away lol Thank You for your lovely comments and for making me laugh! :)

    Family Get Away is such a Pretty build, Lisa! Love, love the curtained, covered patio! I think I will be borrowing that idea for the future, lol. :p The backyard is loaded with fun activities for any sim family and the interiors are absolutely gorgeous!

    Snow's Sanctuary is a Lovely room and Perfect place for a Pretty Kitty! Fabulous outdoor space for him too. I'm sorry to hear about poor Jet... It's always devastating to lose our special little friends...

    Hello @WrathofCath I hope your doing well? Thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderful and lovely comments! I always appreciate your kindness :)

    Yes it is always hard to lose a pet I have lost many throughout my life but, I couldn't live without a furry baby! Luckily Cbear still has her bunny Snow and her kitty Sos to give her cuddles and love. And, she gave Jet a good life after she rescued him and I'm so thankful she did so he could know some love and true care in his later years. She's an outstanding pet mommy :)

    Family Balance
    This is my unofficial entry for the QualityControl 44 challenge. The home is in a modern style. Which I went back and forth on for a long time. I started the build 4 times haha. But, I thought I would try and and step outside my normal comfort zone and went as modern as I could. The home has 3 bedroom 2.5 baths (sleeps 3 adults 1 baby and 1 toddler), eat in kitchen, bar, living room, home office, and play room. It has a Family Friendly back yard, with a lounge area, outside dining, sand box, monkey bars, horseshoe pit, and minimalist landscaping. Thank You for looking and Happy Simming Everyone!

    @yanti68 your so sweet to stop by and catch up with my builds! That castle is infact a very old build. I think nearly 2 years old someone else had seen it on one of my first 2 pages and thought it was my most recent build so I posted pictures of it so everyone knew what we were talking about lol but, as always thank you for your kind comments :) I wish you both a wonderful weekend!
