Here we are again with another update...



"Good morning Anabelle"
"Good morning Ina"
"You look refreshed this morning"
"Oh, I am. I had a fab nights sleep and on top of that I had an idea on how to get my family to achieve their goal"
"Oooh tell me"
"Not yet, I have to chat to Lucas first"
"Go on, I won't say anything"
"Nope, I will reveal all later"
"Go on tell me, go on I know you wanna"
"No...Ina"
"Pleasssssssssssssssse"
"No"
"Pretty please"
"No"
"Pretty please with cherries on top?"
"Haha NO!!!"
"Fine!"
"You in a huff now?"
"No, just tell me...."
"No"
"Humph"
"Now you're in a huff"
"No am not"

I am really but I won't let her know that.



"Morning kids"
"Morning, you ok Ina?"
"Yeah, am just fine and dandy"
"You don't sound ok"
"Well if you must know, your mother is keeping a secret from me and am not happy"
"Oh, ok, she must have her reasons"
"Hmmm I suppose"



"So dad, what's the secret mom is keeping from Ina?"
"I have no idea kitten"
"Why do you call me kitten?"
"Its a term of affection"
"Yeah but am not a cat you know"
"I know, ok, what about petal or sweetpea"
"Kitten is fine"
"Thought so"
"ey dad it's my birthday tomorrow"
"I know son, how do you feel?"
"What about being a teen?"
"Yes, how do you feel knowing you are going to be a big boy"
"Excited, I think"
"Cool, oh, what kind of cake do you want?"
"Chocolate"
"Ok, Melody do you want to bake it?"
"Sure, I need to finish my artwork first though"
"Its not needed till tomorrow honey so you can work on your art today"
"Okay"

After a little while Lucas went off to workout, and Melody finished her picture.





I think its meant to be a llama but I think it looks more like a donkey!!



"And so yu see mom and dad, this could be the easiest way"
"Boo!!! haha did I make you jump?"
"Ina, you nutter, no I didnt jump, you sneaking up on me?"
"Honestly... I was trying to eavesdrop but fell into the hedge"
"Hahahaaaaaaa, silly sausage you are"

The next morning.





"I agree with you sweetie"
"You do? Oh Lucas thankyou"
"Agree with what? You gonna tell me now?"
"Nope, you will find out later, first we got to celebrate Bret's birthday"
"Fine"
"She's in a mood now"
"Who Ina? Nah she will be fine"
"Look she is stomping around"
"No she's not, is she?"
"Yeah she is. Never mind come here and kiss me you stud muffin"
"Pucker up darling"

They all went out, school and work called. When they got back and after homework, dinner, baking of the cake Bret finally aged up.



"Oooh look at you all grown up"
"Yeah, am now a teen, look out ladies here I come"
"Haha, you need to take a cold shower"
"I cant help it if I look so hot, I mean come on, look at me. Admit it Ina you fancy me"
"Listen boy...and yes you are a boy...I have a man, I dont fancy you at all"
"Haha, ok, but I bet there are tons of ladies who will fancy me, like oooh let me see...MJ? Buttons? EQ maybe?"
"Now you are dreaming sunshine ROFLMAO"

In the distance we heard Anabelle calling... Melody, Savanna, Bret and Ina can you come down please.



"Ok, you all comfortable?"
"Yes"
"Right, you know we are all part of the Rosebud Challenge?"
"Yep"
"You know all about your grandmas role in it? She was the founding member that Ina chose to start off the challenge?"
"Yeah you told us that already"
"Well, you also know how your grandma set a task for me and your auntie Erika to find a man, and get married and whoever done that was the next generation heir to carry on with the challenge?"
"Yeah, obviously you won cos you are here and so are we"
"Thats right, thank the lord your dad was waiting for me to age up before he swept me off my feet haha"
"Get on with it Anabelle, I'm in suspenders here"
"Eh!! Suspenders!!!"
"Suspense, haha"
"Ok, well I have decided not to do that to my children, not to set them against each other that way"
"So what you saying?"
"I spoke it over with your dad and he agrees the best way forward is to let you all age up, then if you want to get married and have kids, the 1st one to have a baby will then take on the legacy and it will then continue through your family"
"So we don't have to move out?"
"Not if you dont want to"
"What if none of us gets married?"
"Then the legacy stops with me"
"Hey!! You cant do that...what about my points I get if I complete the challenge?"
"Ina, calm down. I am sure at least one of my kids will marry and have kids, I just don't want them to feel they have to compete with each other. There is one more thing though, you must get a job and contribute to the funds."



"I think its a brill idea mom, you're the best"
"Thankyou Bret"
"I dont like this idea mom"
"Me neither Savanna"
"Ina, Savanna, look its moms idea, she has the last word on this and I think its fine"
"You would say that Melody"



"I'm on board mom"
"Thankyou Melody"
"You 2 are off your heads"
"Savanna shut up, whats your problem?"
"Bret, shut up. I dont have a problem. I just dont want to think that in order to carry on with this legacy one of us HAS to have a baby."
"You know Savanna, the more I think about it the better it seems, just go give your mom ahug and lets see how things go"
"Fine Ina"



"I promise things will work out Savanna darling"
"Ok mom, sorry for being a brat"
"Don't worry about it, no harm done"

Later at dinner time



"So what do you think of all this with the challenge then Bret?"
"I think it wont affect me really, you're the oldest and nearly an adult so  for me it will take some time before i get to have a wife and kids"
"How and when did you get so grown up haha"
"I dunno haha"

After dinner, savanna went out digging and looking for frogs. The rest of the family potted around the house for a bit.





Anabelle and Lucas done a workout.



"Honey don't kiss me, I'm all sweaty"
"Anabelle my love, I will kiss you when I want to"
"Oh Lucas I love you"
"I love you too, and by the way, I love to see you work out, I get the best view"
"Haha, my big butt"
"What can I say, I am a butt man"
"Haha will you 2 get a room"
"Ok Ina we will go be mushy smushy lovey dovey elsewhere then"



"Where did mom and dad go? I thought they were working out?"
"They were, I think they are in their room"
"Oooh they are too old for that"
"No they're not, I will remind you when you are older of that Bret"
"Whatever, I need to get on with my iron pumping muscle building"



"Where have you been?"
"Ina move, need to pee, need to pee, need to pee"
"Ok, haha"
"Got something in my inventory can you get it for me please?"
"Sure"



Oooh a frog, do we keep it or sell it? I think we will keep it for a bit. They can have it as a pet. The next couple of days nothing much happened. School for the kids, work for Lucas and Anabelle followed by gardening, painting, writing oooh Anabelle is level 8 writing skill and level 8 in her writer career. The next day....



"Hi aunt Erika, its my birthday today, you want to come and celebrate with us?"
"Sorry darling, I have to work, but I see someone at your door waiting for you"



"Hi aunt Juliet, you want to come in?"
"Of course sweetie, its your birthday today, you will become a young adult, all grown up"
"Yeah I know its exciting isnt it"



"Hey Troy, where is Suyin?"
"Dont ask"
"Whats up?"
"Nothing, I will talk to you later. For now I am here to celebrate Melody's birthday"
"Ok, come in. We will talk later"



"hey Juliet, Anabelle is still at work but as soon as she is home we will get the cake sorted"
"Hi Lucas, its good. I'll help if you want"



"Aunt Juliet its so good to see you"
"And you Savanna, wow you are almost all grown up, how many days until your birthday?"
"4 I think, but today is Melody's birthday"
"I know, you are all aging up so fast, makes me feel old"
"Uncle Troy is in the kitchen Savanna"
"Oh I better go say hi"



"Hi uncle Troy"
"Hi sweetheart"
"Where's Suyin?"
"Long story, where's your brother? You're mom will be home soon and we can get cake"



"Bret you need to shower before mom gets back"
"Ok, will be down soon"



Uhoh, someone decided to take a bath instead, and well he fell asleep. Must get Lucas to wake him up before he drowns!!!



"Thanks Ina, I now have the embarrassed moodlet"
"Wouldn't you rather have that, than a drowned son!!"
"True I would, Bret...Bret wake up"
"Hmmmm....Dad!! Out now"
"Hoi, I sent him in to wake you before you drowned"
"INA!!! Out!!!"

Well, if thats the thanks I get for saving him, next time I wont.... Anabelle arrived home and they all celebrated the aging up of Melody.



"Whitwoo, look at you"
"Haha Ina, stop it"
"Hey you look fab all grown up, I think your mom wants you downstairs"



"Melody now you are all grown up you have a little job to do"
"Whats that?"
"You need to find a job, to bring money in"
"Oh, I already got one, I joined the painter career. I start tomorrow"
"Great news sweetie, one more thing"
"Yes dad"
"You need to find a man, but I will be interviewing each candidate ok, need to make sure they are worthy"
"What!!!"
"Haha just kidding, the look on your face is priceless"
"Good grief dad, I nearly choked on my eggs then"

Well with Melody all grown up its time for me to take a wee break, need to go shopping in RL today haha. I will be back with more later.

Oh my lordy, I sat on here for over an hour earlier today putting on the next update, when I went to preview it, well it had gone, I had these 2 images instead





Now after searching everywhere I could think of, I finally managed to fix the problem, I had to update firefox, adobe flash player and java for it to work, I was really beginning to panic hills but thank goodness after taking a wee break my brain kicked into gear and I was able to sort it out hello6 hello6

Thankyou for reading Heart Heart

We catch up with our little family when Savanna and Bret return from school.



Anabelle is helping them with their homework.....

"What's the question?"
"What is the highest frequency noise that a human can register?"
"Mariah Carey haha"
"Mom!! Seriously"
"Oh, haha, sorry....The average human ear can hear up to about 20,000 Hertz, however, this number may vary based on the age of the person, as well as other factors. Maybe you should look it up on google"
"Nah I'll pop that answer in and if they say anything then I will look it up then, thanks mom"

Later....



"What on earth is this?"
"Think its garlic noodles"
"It's not that nice"
"Well don't eat it then"
"Who made it?"
"Mom"
"I thought we were having mac n cheese tonight?"
"Well obviously she changed her mind"



"You know I can hear you right? I was in the next room and all I can hear is you lot complaining about the food. If you don't want it don't eat it. Make yourself a sandwich or something"
"We were just saying, it's not what we were expecting"
"Well you know what....don't expect anything then you won't be dissapointed will you"
"Mom...we were.."
"You know what...kitchen is closed..this cook is on strike!!"

OMG who rattled her cage!!! I left them there for the night, maybe Anabelle will be in a better mood tomorrow (sim tomorrow, not my tomorrow)



After work and school I was on my way in to see our happy family when I noticed this hunky guy walking past the door, I quickly paused the game and sent Melody out to meet him. Hey we can't pass up this opportunity can we..LOL



After the formal introductions..

"Hi I'm Melody"
"Hi I'm Sam"
"How do you do?"
blah blah blah...you know how it goes. Click on get to know, click on discuss interests etc etc etc. We finally got to the holding hands stage. Looks promising, could Melody be the one to snag a man??



"Do you wanna take a pic with me?"
"Sure Mel, can I call you Mel?"
(giggles)"Of course you can"
"You smell nice"
"Thankyou"
"Its like a fruity smell"
"I use strawberry lotion"
"Hmmmm, its nice"



"Its getting late, I should go"
"NO...errr I mean, you wanna come in for a bit, coffee maybe?"
"Oh err, sure ok"
After another hour or so she asked him to spend the night. Now at this point they are friends, the green friendship bar thingy was over half way so I thought, why not go in for a flirt....hey presto they are romantic interest.



Now in all the excitement of me getting Mel and Sam to this new stage I forgot to do a cake for Savanna.



"Sorry Savanna it was my fault, I was busy..."
"Yeah I know, busy with Mel the floosy and Sam the beefcake"
"Well, she is not a floosy and he is not, well yes he is a beefcake"
"Nice to see Mel having some cake"
"Hey!! At least you're all grown up now, and you are extremely pretty"
"I know I am, pretty, pretty pee'd off with you right now"
"Sorry, what more can I say?"

With that she stomped off to bed. I went to check on where Mel and Sam had got to only to notice they were no longer romantic interest, huh!! Oh well both were very tired so I sent them off to bed too, seperate rooms of course.

This only the first half of the update, I will pop on the other half tomorrow.

Heart Heart

Heart  Love Savanna's "Somebody forgot my cake" face. 
Sam looks like a nice catch for Mel.  I hope he is not hiding some kind of devious past.
Suspect 

rant The disappearing post rant
bah 
Had that happen too many time.  Not often ... but Once is too many.
I try to remember to copy all before hitting preview or send.

Well, now that is just super rude of Foxfire VikgAxMad

Poor Savanna! I agree, her facial expression is perfect.

As always, I love your storytelling. Looking forward to you next update. Spinning

thankyou all for reading Heart

I will absolutely without a doubt copy/paste everything in future Smile
The food chatter is something that happens in my house (RL) a lot haha Laughing

Here comes the next update...

So after the stomping off to bed with Savanna, and the separate rooms for Melody and Sam, everyone was fast asleep. In the morning, Bret headed off to school. Anabelle, Lucas and Melody all went off to work, which left Savanna alone in the house with Sam.



"Good morning Sam, did you sleep well?"
"Not really, I was in a single bed so my feet kept sticking out the bottom and everytime I turned over I felt as though I was gonna fall out"
"Oh dear, not so good. Can I ask what happened between you and Melody to stop the romantic interest?"
"Errr, to be honest I don't know, maybe you should ask her"
"She's at work, so am asking you"
"Well, umm, hey am hungry any chance of food?"
"I think Savanna is making breakfast"
"Oh the teen from last night?"
"She is no longer a teen, she aged up"
"Oh"

He headed off to the gym area so Savanna brought him some breakfast.



"Hi Sam"
"Oh hi Savanna, thanks for the food"
"You are more than welcome"
"So, I see you aged up then"
"Yes, I did"
"You are very pretty"
"Shucks you're making me blush"

I left the two of them there, are they flirting? Oh what will Melody say? Anyhoo, the day sort of rolled by with everyone doing there own thing. Later that evening when Melody returned from work she wanted to chat to her parents, she had something on her mind.



"So you see mom, I asked him to move in and he did, but well now I am not sure if he is the one for me"
"What do you mean sweetie?"
"We were getting on great, even got to romantic interest, then pfft, all feelings left. I really dont think he is the one, you know"
"Oh I see, so what are you going to do about it?"
"I was hoping maybe you or dad could tell him to leave"
"I think honey, that you should be the one to tell him dont you?"
"Noooo, please mommy"
"Haha so its mommy now is it, teehee, nope sorry Melody, you have to do this on your own"
"Fine I'll go ask dad then"



"Sooo what your asking me to do is kick this guy out so you dont have to?"
"Well in a nutshell, yes"
"Nope not gonna happen"
"Why not? you're my dad and are meant to help me"
"I am helping you by getting you to grow up and deal with your own mistakes"

Meanwhile upstairs......



"This rose is for you, a beautiful flower for a beautiful girl"
"Oh Sam, its so romantic"



"Do you think I am sexy Sam?"
"Oh yes, very sexy indeed"
"Do you think we could be more than friends Sam?"
"Oh, I am sure of it"



"Savanna, what are you doing?"
"What?"
"Flirting with Sam, what about Melody?"
"Look Sam told me all about the no feelings and how he thinks she will ask him to move out, so after we chatted all day, I realised you know what this guy is too good to let go"
"So you just swooped in to take him for yourself?"
"It wasnt like that, we actually really get on. He is smart, funny, sensitive, romantic, sexy, kind, handsome did I mention sexy?"
"You did, twice haha, well actually if thats how you feel, who am I to stand in your way...carry on Savanna"

With a little more flirting, a little more getting to know each other and a little more touchy feely going on it was time to test the water, I sent Savanna in for a kiss....



Woot woot we have romantic interest, quickly followed by boyfriend, I wonder if this is the pairing I should have went for.... now to see if they can keep this status. I just watched the scene unfold, not that I am any kind of peeping Tom or anything, I just wanted to see if anything would change.



They flirted, they kissed, they flirted more.

"Oh Sam, I, you have swept me off my feet"
"Savanna, I tried my best to not feel anything for you. Guess what? I failed."
"Sam, For a moment I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Now I see that I am very much alive, and heaven has been brought to me."
"You're so beautiful that you made me forget my pickup line."

Good grief, where do they get these lines from? Oh yes that would be me hahahahaaaa
I decided to tell Melody that her sister has sorted the problem, she doesnt have to man up, why do they say "man up" everyone knows a woman is way stronger (emotionally and mentally) I suppose woman up doesnt have quite the same effect does it??



"I didnt realise how hungry I was"
"Me neither, I was so wrapped up in your beauty my appetite just ebbed away"
"Oh Sam, you always know the right things to say"
"Ina did you tell Melody?"
"Yes I did, she took it really well, in fact she said she was heading out to the bar"
"She;s not going to drown her sorrows is she?"
"Oh no, nothing like that she found out there was a singles club tonight"
"Awesome, I hope she finds someone who will love her as much as ....."
"Go on say it Sam"
"As much as I love Savanna"

I headed out to the bar to see how Melody was getting on....



"Melody...what the ??"
"Shut up Ina, I didnt read the small print on the ad, it said Singles Club For the over 60's"
"Oh dear, hahaaaa, well you could chat to the barman"
"Yeah I think I will"
"How do you really feel about Sam and Savanna?"
"Honestly? I am relieved, I really didnt have a strong connection to him, I felt it was forced upon me, you know"
"I wonder was it my fault? Did I really throw you in at the deep end?"
"Look alls well that ends well, so forget about it, I am happy for them, it means now i can look for my own true love"

I left her at the bar living it up with the grey hair brigade. lets see whats happening at the house.



"Oh my lordy is that a diamond I see on your finger?"
"Yes, it is, Sam proposed and I said yes"
"Don't you think its a bit quick?"
"Look Ina, I dont know whether you have noticed but I am not real, I am a sim, a character in a story that you created, so the reality thing doesnt come into it"

Well that put me in my place didnt it haha

Until next time, this is Ina signing out (must remember to copy this before preview)  Big Grin  Big Grin

So since I have been away I have spent a little time each day compiling the screenshots I had before my eye thing got in the way, anyhoo I have been doing a little bit at a time so as not to overdo things and today I intend to upload them here.

In this update there will be no conversations between myself and my simmies, I do miss that, A LOT!! haha. Instead I will be narrating each photo sort of...you will see what I mean as we go on haha.



Here we have Melody and Lucas chatting about her new love, I say new love more like a bloke she picked up at the bar but we are hopeful. Do you notice the resemblance to Sam? We also have a very pregnant Savanna. A few more snaps of the lovey dovey couples.



In this photo collage we have Savanna telling everyone about her chosen baby names, Nadia for a girl and Freddie for a boy. Annabelle is off to work, she has maxed out her writing skill woot woot!! And melody and her new man chat to Bret, who I cant remember if I aged him up to Young Adult yet or not. Bret is online doing something, which I forget, come on its been a while since I took that shot, haha.



In this one we have Annabelle and Lucas aged up to elder. Melody is proposing to (I forgot his name) I think its Philip? Will have to check when I go back in game. He said yes by the way, go on melody you snagged a man haha.



Here we have Annabelle cooing over the very pregnant Savanna bump. The birth of little Nadia, yep it was a girl. Lucas and Sam discussing man stuff and Anabelle and Lucas having a wee cuddle, they still love to flirt, kiss, cuddle and woohoo!!



We aged up Nadia, or should I say I aged her up. She is a little cutie. Bret is still chatting on the pc, I think I remember what he was doing now. Philip or is it Sam? Whoever it is is in the garden and then we have a family shot, not sure why but well its a nice pic anyhoo haha.



Melody and Philip decide to move out. Lucas still exercises whenever he can, which is all the time. Savanna tells Sam there is another little one on the way and Nadia is trying to watch tv but her dad is in the way, she says to him, "Daddy you would make a very good door but not a very good window" He says "Why not a window?" Her reply, "Cos I cant see through you" Grandpa Lucas is helping Nadia with her homework, he looks very into it dont ya think?



Holly crap who is this? Seb Pilkington at your service. Bret has invited a friend to stay. Not sure if this will be a matchmaking situation or whether I will see how things pan out. Anyhoo, they are best friends at the moment so who knows. Seb helps Nadia with her homework and then gets to know the rest of the family. No matter what happens his income will help towards the end goal.



Savanna and Sam have another little girl. Daisy is her name. Sam gets promoted at work. Nothing else to report here.



We aged up Daisy. Seb takes on the cooking for the day. Grandpa gets to know Nadia and Bret sulks about not having a partner to his mum. Savanna and Sam have a mini arguement about who is going to clean up the puddle, i have no idea why there is a puddle on the floor, or who made it or who cleaned it up haha. Nadia boosts her skills on the monkey bars.

We are getting closer to the newer pics now, did I say I went in game for a bit? I missed my sims so much I couldnt resist.



A little bit of color here, the closer we get to being back up to date the more color you will see. What do we have going on now? Sam aged up to Adult, Daisy likes the new look. Haha I cought Lucas in the shower but he was not pleased and had that grumpy face on all day. Bret is still moaning about being single, this time its Lucas who has his ear chewed.



Grim comes for Annabelle. What more can I say? Her time was up. So long Annabelle, she came back in ghost form of course.



Melody comes over to say goodbye to her mom. Lucas is heartbroken, everytime he goes to cook something he leaves half way through it to mourn, why does he do that? Anyhoo, Savanna, Sam and Lucas take advantage of the nice weather and eat out at the pool.

Here we are up to date with the new pics coming next.



I aged up the girls, I also aged up Savanna. Nadia is chatting to Lucas about being old, Savanna had a makeover, hair and clothing, and look at little Daisy all teened out in her fluffy robe haha. Nadia loves to help her grandpa in the garden. I changed her hair, only because I went looking for more hair and liked this one better.



Here we are at the end of the update. The last photo collage. As you can see Lucas is no more, bye bye Lucas you can now join Annabelle and haunt the life out of the family muhahahaaa. Savanna tells Grim to get out, not sure why she is posing like that though. The family sit down to watch tv, well they try to but Sam and Daisy keep standing up. Oh and Sam changed his job he is now a mascot hahhaaaaa, love the uniform, hahahaaaa.

Ok thats it for now, not sure when I will be back with more. Hopefully not too long. Love to all, thanks for reading.

Hi buttons, I couldn't resist playing even for a short while, I needed a sim fix LOL. My eyes are much the same, I go back to hospital in February to see if the pressure has stayed down if it has gone back up then it could be surgery, fingers crossed the drops I use work and no surgery is needed.

thankyou all for the well wishes, only 2 weeks or so left till I find out Heart

Here is the latest update from our happy little household...



"Nadia is that you?"
"Yep tis me, I got aged up and look my hair went curly with the shock!!"

Haha, as you can see Nadia is now a young adult and ready to snag a man or woman, I'm not saying which one she will go for as I do not know haha. Seb is seen chatting to her on his way out to work, or was he coming in? I can't remember. Look at Sam getting his morning shower, he wasnt too pleased I caught him starkers teehee. Time for some gardening I see. Nadia is telling Daisy that aging up isnt painful at all in fact it sort of tickles, not that I know that of course but I would assume it tickles with all the fancy lights and swirly stuff going on. Oh and Savanna practicing her boxing skills.



"So you see bro, with the girls aging up (Daisy will be soon) we need the space ready for their other halves to move in"
"You kicking me out?"
"Noooo not at all, am asking you to go freely, and take Seb with you"
"Fine, I'm off"

Yep we kicked out Bret and Seb. I think Sam and Savanna were pleased as they spent the morning dancing. Not that I would call that dancing mind you haha. That night an angry Annabelle made an appearance, she broke 2 sinks and the tv....I was not happy at all!! I dont think Sam was pleased either as he had to fix them, never mind he took out his anger on the boxing thingy.



Daisy aged up and Lucas and Annabelle came to visit. I sent the girls to the gym to chat up some guys. NOOOOOooo Daisy not him, not him at all.



Since the girls were having no luck with guys about town, I made some and moved them in. Idris, tall blonde very muscular. Dominic, tall dark and very bald and Bradley your boy next door type. I wonder who will end up with who? Oh and the race is on by the way, you know the race to snag a man. Daisy asks her dad for some tips on how to beat Nadia. Sam told her to ask her mom, haha.



At first glance you might think look Nadia won, but wait a minute Daisy was right on her tail. Poor Bradley didnt get a look in as Idris zoomed in on Nadia and Dominic on Daisy. Look Savanna and Sam aged up. Stop the bus!!!! Is he proposing?? Yes, yes he is.....we have a winner everyone...Nadia will carry on the quest.



We didnt waste any time. Daisy and the other blokes got moved out. Nadia and Idris got married and as you can see were very, very busy. Yep she is preggers. She sat Idris down and told him she wanted to move, she needed more room. So without hesitating, I gathered up the urns from the back garden and set about building a new home. Just in time too as no sooner had I finished building then pop...twins...twin girls.



The twins Sofia and Chelsea with mom and dad. Sam was in the garden. ( I got them to order seeds and planted them as soon as they moved) Savanna is enjoying the much bigger kitchen and look Daisy cam to visit. I think Nadia was tired as I caught her snoozing on the sofa. Did you notice we straightened her hair?



We aged the girls up, Chelsea (brunette) and Sofia (blonde) they look cute eh? Nothing much happened over the next few days apart from yep you guessed it, Nadia is expecting again haha. No wasting time with these 2 is there? The girls were asking Idris were babies come from when bam, they are coming....Twins again...Boys this time. Clyde and Jay welcome to the family.



Here they are aged up. Jay (blonde) and Clyde (black hair). I cant wait to age them up again to see how they will turn out. I wonder if any of the kids will have the curse of the pointy chin? Maybe Sofia? The family enjoy breakfast together. I think all they ever do is eat you know. And whats with the leaving plates everywhere? I mean come on EA get some dishwashers sorted for goodness sake haha.

Thats it for now, catch you next time folks   Heart  Heart

Very funny! The dancing captures are so funny too. Congrats to Nadia on winning the race. What a cute bunch of children. Looking forward to your next update!

Here's hoping the next two weeks go quickly for you and you receive the news we are all hoping for Heart

OMG!!! Its been so long since I updated this ..... :sozsoz:

Anyhoo, here we are with a little bit more on this ever growing family. I am nowhere near the challenge goal but hey, I am taking it slow teehee.



Well here we have Sam grilling up some food, much to the delight of the others who were STARVING thanks to the glitch with CC. I figured out they could grill outside so at least they could eat. Savanna and Sam are having a wee cuddle in the hallway. They are both passed their expiry date so who knows how long they have left. Idris is hovering around Clydes room, not sure if he is helping with homework or what, I can't remember haha.



Oh dear looks like it time for Savanna to meet her maker. So long duckie, time to go and rest in the heavens with those that have gone before you. Did you notice in the background how Nadia and Idris are not even bothered?? They just carry on chatting as if nothing is happening while the rest of them are bawling their eyes out. To make the moment more heartbreaking young Sofia decided to play a haunting melody, you know just to make sure we all cry even more. Nadia took time out to read to the little ones as they couldnt sleep. I am sure they were having nightmares about Grim muhahahaaa.



Life went on in the household. Young Jay is a master of the mop, he is always mopping up puddles. Idris is talking to his handsome self (he has to do this to earn a promotion). Sam (yep still with us) is tending to his garden OH!! he completed his aspiration woot woot go Sam. At the end of the day Idris sits to eat his dinner while Sam and Chelsea chat about...well I dont know what they were talking about but they were deep in conversation anyway.



A few days went by with nothing major happening, then we got the "No Cooking" thing sorted and hey presto we got to age the girls up. Chelsea top and Sofia bottom, why are they so skinny? Good grief I will have to feed them up to make them more healthy looking. Sam is still with us, I wonder when he will pop his clogs, kick the bucket so to speak? Not that I am wanting him to go yet, I was just wondering. Idris is explaining to the boys that it will be their turn to age up soon. Oh and I also got to age up Idris and Nadia, they are now adults. Just in case you were wondering haha.



The weekend is here, poor Nadia is always at work these days. I always seem to forget to snap a shot of her because when she gets home from work its food, loo, shower, paint then bed. Idris loves to work out. The girls are contemplating what to do today and the boys well they are ready to go out in the garden to play on the new pirate ship thing I got them. Idris joins in on the fun time before attempting to make dinner, mac & cheese, ahem he dropped the pepper and sneezed in the pot, I dont think I would want to eat that!!



The boys aged up, Jay top and Clyde bottom. They turned out ok dont ya think? Thats all 4 kids teen now, not long before young adulthood and finding spouses. I wonder if one of the boys will snag a mate first this time? Have you noticed its always been girls to carry on the legacy? Lets see if I can remember the order....We started with Anya, then it went to Annabelle, then it was the recently departed Savanna and lastly Nadia. We will just have to wait and see what happens. As you can see Sam is still with us. Idris enjoys a joke with Sofia but I dont think Clyde got it, he looks kinda confused haha.

Well thats it for now, I have to try and remember to make shots of Nadia and the Rosebud Challenge Status (to show how far off I am haha)
Until next time, thanks for reading
