T-Park Finale

The Finale!

Ginger Rae married the girl she had been dating who brought in so much money that they bought several vacation properties and hunting grounds.  Her wife was obsessed with making more money leaving Ginger Rae alone most of the time.  Ginger Rae was much more interested in spending time with her many friends than having a family and since their trailers were so nice she didn’t see the point in working.  It wasn’t until their old age that they realized they’d never had children to continue the legacy…

 

Bobby Ray married the girl that the matchmaker had sent him, Annie.  He provided a nice house and held a steady job.  One day he caught Annie cheating and later learned that their children weren’t his!  Annie told him it’s his own fault for being so cheap when trying to find a wife.  She ran away with the mailman and Bobby Ray continued to raise the children as if they were his own…

 

Stevie Ray and Vaughn succeeded in resurrecting Twyla Fae.  By then Stevie Ray had topped the Scientist career and Vaughn was quite high in the Paranormal career.  They had a very nice home and were able to provide Twyla Fae a life of luxury she could never have imagined in her past life.  The girl that gave Stevie Ray the job in the first place called him incessantly and wore him down until he eventually married her.  Vaughn and Twyla Fae became an item but when he asked her to marry him she acted afraid and refused.  None of them had any children due to Twyla Fae’s hysterical reaction when the subject was mentioned but they lead a life of luxury beyond what any of their family could imagine…

Willa Rae spent her time juggling her many relationships until one day the wife of one of her many “boyfriends” framed her for his murder.  Since she was a well known and notorious criminal by then her claims of innocence were left unheard…

Neesy Lyn and Archie married near the end of their teen years and immediately began working on having 10 kids of their own…

The twins Abby Lyn and Addie Lyn moved out as soon as they aged up and when Ginger Rae didn’t have time for them the girls took over care of and trained Alegra and Buck’s many puppies making their way into show business and touring all over the country.  They became rich and famous…

Otis Lee developed a complex after realizing he was named after a doll.  One day he disappeared but there are rumors that there is an imaginary friend in Sims 3 that looks eerily similar to him…

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.06 PM

The red-headed kid ran away when he realized that nobody even knew his name.  He was never heard from again…

The twin girls that were separated at birth Fannie and Ivy met as teens.  Due to their very different upbringings, they couldn’t relate to each other and never became close but they did stay in touch.  Both married and had children of their own and happy lives.  Despite their mother’s differences, their children all became good friends…

Founder Neoma and husband Trent died of old age and haunted all of the kids and their families for many generations urging them to have more grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on…

The End!!!

TS2→ T-Park & Beyond: Well Hell

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.27 PM

As I mentioned in the previous chapter, despite me just saying I was going to keep doing this series, It looks like it’s just not possible.  Do you remember in the recently published chapter when I messed up moving Willa Rae and learned near the end of the day and several saves that she’d lost all of her relationships?  I saw her intact family tree and memories so I thought it wasn’t that big of a deal.

Screen Shot 08-26-18 at 08.53 PM

But, it was.  This is her sister Abby Lyn that just aged to teen.  I figured once she introduced herself she would show again in her relationship panel as her sister.  But she didn’t.  So, I checked the family tree and realized that it still has Abby Lyn and her twin Addie Lyn as children.  Moments later the game crashed.

The Sims 2 is a very temperamental game.  It needs babying even more than Sims 3 does.  When I moved Willa Rae and her whole lot into the bin by accident and then placed her back down again I somehow made her like a new sim.  So the game thought there were 2 Willa Rae’s but there was only one.  She still had her memories and her family tree was there but it was like she was a copy of the original Willa Rae.

Screen Shot 08-29-18 at 02.08 PM

Anyway, I thought it was still salvageable.  I could just find the backup save and play up to where I am right?  Uh, no.  This is her relationships in the backup save.  All the kids are in their previous lifestage.  Basically, I’d have to play a whole lot to catch up and nothing would happen the same like Stevie Ray getting that job or Bobby Ray meeting that girl.  I believe this was right after all of the kids moved out actually because even Ginger Rae is a teen.

I was already having some problems with this save before this.  Like there were no graves at the graveyards and a few weird things here and there.  This is the save that I’ve used for years for my challenges so who knows what other things I did to mess it up.  I was looking over T-Park chapters trying to find pics for the finale chapter and even came across a few times I mentioned that I thought the lot was bugged and went as far as to move them all out which resulted in losing their pictures and a few other things.

My only option would be to save all of them using SimPe and Bodyshop and move their clones to a fresh save which I’ve tried to do before and it was really confusing so I decided to just cut my losses.  On the bright side, I thought up a little ending story for each of them to wrap things up nicely.

Finale

TS2→ Beyond T-Park Ghost Ch 1: Resurrection Plans

Chapter 1

Tuesday

I know technically I should have put Stevie Ray and Vaughn to the back of the rotation but it seemed to me like it would be weird so I’ve put them in the front instead!  So, as you might remember from the Interim chapter here they are with a similar set-up to Bobby Ray and once again I barely had any idea what to do with them!

I’ve had this vague plan since Vaughn rolled Knowledge for his secondary aspiration and kept rolling wants to see ghosts and stuff that he would find it fascinating that Twyla Fae had died on their old lot before their mom moved in.  I put her urn at the graveyard in Downtown assuming there would be others but there weren’t.

So, Stevie Ray suggested to Vaughn that they take the urn home.  Also, I guess since his secondary aspiration is Popularity, Stevie Ray was able to get his aspiration level almost to platinum with the non-stop wants to interact with his twin!

Then, he got a want to gain a skill point and since I had no idea what to have them do once they’d grabbed the urn they went to the bookstore in Crowborough.

After he’d gained his skill point, I told him to scope the room and he decided he liked the looks of this girl and I had him greet her.  He spoke to her once and she offered him a level 5 job!!!  Now, I hadn’t planned for him to work.  I’d planned to have him use that darned toy machine that was useless at his parent’s house but I’d be crazy to reject this offer!

Holy crap!!!

So while Stevie Ray chatted with that girl, Vaughn scoped the room and met this redhead with short hair.

He asked her on a date and while his twin went back to studying something so he could skill up for work they had a nice date.  Not a dream date though because he had to get home for his new job.  Oh, didn’t I mention that?  He’s going into the Paranormal career so he can get that reward and try to resurrect Twyla Fae!

There’s really nothing on their lots so they all stay out most of the day!

Geeze.  The stupid carpool showed up for Stevie Ray!  And then it popped up that he’d missed work!  He hadn’t even accepted the job until like 2pm!

LMAO!!!

While Vaughn was off to work I tried to decide where to take Stevie Ray to get his needs up.  I decided to waste money to just have him eat at Walmart and use their bathroom instead of grilling.

Yay!

Double yay!

Vaughn set up Twyla Fae’s urn in a place of honor.  I have no idea if she’ll haunt or not.

Wednesday

I figured the money trees might be off-limits for the Trailer Park Challenge but they’re free game in my made-up-for-the-twins-challenge-type-thing!  And since both of their primary aspirations are Money they’d be interested in such things.

I used some of the money Vaughn had earned the day before to purchase a chess table.  I figured that Stevie Ray needs logic for work and it also gives fun and unlike the telescope you can use it during the day.

I’d bought a sink and stuck it in the corner so that Stevie Ray could sponge bathe before work but couldn’t take a pic because uhhh no censor.  He was leaving for work just as Vaughn was waking up and taking notice of the new money tree.

I used some aspiration points to purchase Vaughn his very own money tree and he seemed thrilled.

Then I’d decided to make a sort of outhouse type thing with just a toilet and the sink for sponge baths and I guess cuz the door is in front of the toilet it wouldn’t close!  Geeze.

I had to get a loan again to do it though.

Which I guess was kind of a waste because, unlike Stevie Ray, Vaughn has all of the skills he’ll need to get up to where he needs to be in Paranormal to get the resurrection thingy.  So since he wanted a skill point and I was bored I sent him to the gym.

Oh!  That’s a cool want that I haven’t seen before.  It’s probably because Vaughn has full points in the nice category.

He got his body skill point and went to nicely chat with some other sims.  He thought this lady was nice looking but I was like bleh.

He also thought that this one was.  If you don’t know how the “scope room” thing works they only zero in on one sim so if you want to do it more than once you have to wait for the other one to leave.  I don’t like this girl.  I’ve seen her constantly.  Actually, there are a lot of townies like her I’m meh about from seeing them so much.

Vaughn got home in time to leave for work and then Stevie Ray got home and happily harvested and watered the money trees.

I thought maybe having them so close to the road wasn’t the best idea.  I’ve read that visiting sims will harvest them!  Eventually, I’ll have to fence them in or something, I don’t know?  He needed fun so I had him play some chess.

Then, he needed social so I bought a phone and had him chat with the girl that got him the job and they became friends.

A/N: As I mentioned in the previous chapter this will be the last of the T-Park & Beyond chapters.  I’d planned to explain why here but it got too long so I’m just gonna publish it as a separate note.  Which is why I didn’t bother going back to find the names of the girls that they’d met.

Explanation

TS2→ Beyond T-Park Matchmaker Ch 1: Make Me a Match

Chapter 1

Matchmaker

Sunday

A/N: I have no idea what the deal is with the weird spacing in this chapter.  This was written a few months ago and I can’t seem to fix it.

So, here we are.  As I mentioned in the Interim chapter, I’d forgotten the correct season for Bobby Ray so it’s changed sometime after this.  I really had no idea what to do with him.  I’d actually planned for one of them to do the Poverty Challenge but when it came down to it I didn’t feel like it.  I searched and searched for another challenge that started with them being broke but came up empty.  Finally, I decided I’d just come up with my own little story for them all like I’d done already for the ones who’d moved out.

Bobby Ray is a Family sim and I thought he’d be eager to start his life with someone but after hearing stories of his mother trying to pick a husband and then seeing what his sister is doing to find a spouse he decided to just cut his losses and hire the Matchmaker.

I had to buy him a phone then sell it back to get her there.  He asked for a blind date and gave her the hundred odd dollars that he had left after buying the tent and stuff.

She was not pleased!

But she accepted his money nonetheless and did the whole crystal ball thing…

His future wife dropped from the sky and he didn’t even look to see if she was okay and instead thanked the Matchmaker profusely.

He asked her if she liked what she saw and she said she did.  But her turnons are hats and glasses so I’m not really sure how that’s possible.  (I’ve noticed that a lot of sims do this when asked that but end up turning down all advances so I’m not sure what the deal is with this interaction.)

He did not return the sentiment and was constantly throwing off the x’d hearts which cracked me up!

Yikes!

Ginger Rae strode by on a “hike” with Buck.  Suuure, we’re onto you now!  Hiking to Bluewater Village to snoop on your younger brother!

Neither was getting very helpful wants so I had them play catch for awhile trying to at least get their relationship up.

Then, out of nowhere, he started getting wants to flirt with her and such.  Maybe it was because they’d become friends?  He even developed a crush which I thought was impressive since he kept being repulsed by her!

What a gentleman.  I’d thought, with that getup, she was a sorority girl or something but when I searched her name it didn’t bring anything up so she is indeed a random townie.

The date timer ran out without a dream date but really what did you expect?  He even gave her a sweet kiss goodbye.  That actually went quite well.

LOL!

He walked back to Belladonna Cove to the job board at Walmart and got a job in the Journalism career since he already has quite high Creativity skill.

And then I was like what do I do with him now?  He doesn’t have a penny to his name and he’s starving!  Then, I remembered Ginger Rae made money DJ’ing.  It might be against the rules in that challenge but this is my own challenge-type-thing I’m making up as I go so I decided it’s allowed!

He drew quite the crowd and I had fun watching everyone dance.  I think the hidden dance skill is pretty cool.  All of the older T-Park kids have high dance skill from when they smustled so much before the stereo broke!

Woot!

The host, who incidentally is the elder his mom dated, sat him at a table outside that had this huge candle arrangement on it and when his food was delivered it disappeared!  So, I had him steal this burger and I went back later to remove the candle thingies.

Monday

Monday morning loan balance check.

He arrived home from his first day at his new job to pouring rain stinky and needed the bathroom.

So, he went back to the club and used the toilet and had a quick sponge bath in the bathroom.  Sloppy sims have their advantages!

Then, he got to work DJ’ing again.  This woman wanted to greet him and just stood behind him for a few minutes.  She looks like a hot mess.  Those are not clubbing clothes girl!

I tried to get a shot of her goofy dance moves but it’s so hard to pause in time.  Sometimes I want so badly to record the silly things they do!

Heck yea!

I had him ask to be seated at the bar this time even though I’d fixed the candles just to be sure.  He asked for the chef’s special because I was curious what on earth the food was he kept thinking of.  I still have no idea.  It looks like pumpkin pie.  It was only §13 so that was good.

Holy crap!  He was gone for 10 hours and most of that time he was DJ’ing!  Between his money from work and the DJ money, he was able to pay off the loan in full.

Extra…

I’d gotten some new default replacements for the witches.  Doesn’t she look awesome???  You’ll see the good witch in the next chapter with Stevie Ray and Vaughn.

Beyond T-Park Ghost Chapter 1

A/N: I’m sorry to say that this will be the only chapter with Bobby Ray… as well as the next with Stevie Ray and Vaughn.  I’ll explain why after the next chapter.

TS2→ Beyond T-Park Interim: Moving On

A/N: I took some silly shots of moving the boys on and had no idea what to do with them so I thought I’d make a little mini-chapter to show you the setups.

I’d spent a long time making this cool little building to send them first to change their clothes and such and then realized that it was over §8k to move them in!  Obviously, they didn’t have that much!  They didn’t even have the §1k for the smallest plot of land!  What was I to do with them?

I ended up dropping them onto an apartment lot but not renting an apartment and doing motherlode.  Then, I had them buy the little building and change their clothes.

And names.

I thought I’d picked the correct options in the stay put shrub or whatever it’s called but when I moved Stevie Ray and Vaughn in all of the stuff was gone and I had to start over!

More changing of clothes.  I just did every outfit category for all of them figuring if they’d come from CAS that’s how it would be.

I moved first Bobby Ray and then the twins onto the least expensive empty lots and then dropped their money to zero after going into SimPe and changing their household names so that the familyfunds cheat would actually work.  So, you’re probably like what the heck are those things on the ground for?  One changes the season to whatever you want so I changed it to what all of the other households are at and the other vase changes the day to whatever you want.  So I changed them to whatever day they’d moved out.  The last is a loan jar.

I got them all a tent, lantern, and flamingo for fun.  Stevie Ray and Vaughn didn’t need as large of a loan because they’d left with more money due to the yard sale.  I thought briefly that it was kinda boring starting them as well as Willa Rae out almost exactly the same but then again this is pretty much how I start everything in Sims 4 and if it works why change it?  All the kids leave with practically nothing so there aren’t many options.  I gave them all tents because they can’t sleep on community lots like you can in Sims 3 and 4!

I ended up realizing a few minutes after starting to play Bobby Ray that I’d used the fall setting that I’d written down for Stevie Ray and Vaughn and that it was actually 2 days left in summer when he’d moved out on Sunday.

And last, I’d been saving this screenshot and trying to figure out when I can use it and I finally can!  In case you were wondering how I added the kids all to different households.  I teleported them with Simblender and then used a cheat to add them to the families.  I also had to change the season for all of them but not the day because I lined them all up to start on a Monday.  I didn’t use the loan jars for the DuPonts or Orphans but just gave them money and cheated the amount I didn’t want away later.

I hope you enjoyed this weird little look into how insane it is to do a rotation in Sims 2!

Matchmaker Chapter 1

TS2→ Beyond T-Park Separated at Birth Part 4

Part 4

A/N: I’ve been thinking about it and I really have no interest in keeping up with this one.  I guess I’ll just figure out when the girls need to age up in comparison to the rest of the family.  I’ll likely do some sort of “meeting” chapter when they’re teens or something at least.  Which is why there’s no Monday for them.

Fannie Sunday

Fannie was finally potty trained and since she woke up way before her dads I moved it up to her room so she could potty instead of waking one of them up.

So cute!

Not so cute.  Gross!  Is it just the yellow pee mod or does pee never evaporate in this game?!?

A warning popped up about the bills and I looked and looked and found them way back on the seldom-used deck!

Fannie was potty trained and had learned to walk so all that was left the day of her birthday was to finish learning to talk.

So cute!  But an odd outfit to age up in.

I think she enjoyed trying on some new ones after daddy Drew took her to a clothing shop.

They brought Peppa along.  She was the model of a good pet… unlike the cat that destroyed that couch completely!

I was trying to decide between three outfits and accidentally bought them all.  They went to a toy store next but there was nothing actually buyable.  Not sure exactly how non-home businesses work in this game truthfully.

While waiting for Drew and Fannie to return home Todd solved the question of why the hedges look so unruly.  Apparently, they need trimmed!  This place is a mess.  Unlike her sister’s house, they have no hired help.

And Fannie returned to find her bedroom now set up for a child!

Ivy Sunday

Now that I knew about the hedges needing to be trimmed I realized that the DuPont house is completely surrounded by hedge!  I was thinking I’d end up having a maid and gardener and remembering that the nanny mod I’d used has an all-in-one option I tried using that.  But, every time I tried I got the same message.  I’d had both of the parents do it and so when morning came two helpers showed up!  I later had Ezra fire the red-head because I think the other girl is cute.

Mom plays a little chess while keeping an eye on Ivy playing in her room.  Unlike her twin, Ivy had already learned all of the toddler skills the day before.

Which apparently resulted in me taking no other pics of her that day!  I have no idea what this room is that she’s in?  It’s not the NPC lady’s room that has a white bedspread.

And obviously, it’s not her room!  Look at this.  So cool!  She has a bed, computer, radio, and tv!

Did she get sunburned from being in the open-air downstairs???

What the?  Get off your daughter!  You have your own bed.  I really need to put the assignable beds mod back in.  I took it out when there were so many kids in the trailer that I couldn’t control.

Supposedly the new NPC helper also cooks but that obviously isn’t happening.  I have no idea what I’ve done wrong and it was time for me to leave them so I didn’t get a chance to figure it out.

Ivy was woken up to eat the burned mac’n’cheese.  Gross.  It looks like her mom is telling her with her eyes to just eat it.

And the new live-in helper (name???) does not seem confident in her job.  Poor girl!

T-Park Po’ Livin’ 2.3

TS2→ Beyond T-Park: Runaway & Orphans Part 4

Part 4

A/N: I’m going to confuse the heck out of you now.  There is an over 5-month gap between when I played Sunday and when I played Monday.  This and 5 other T-Park (& Beyond) chapters have been collecting dust in my drafts folder here on WordPress all that time.

Runaway

Sunday

Sunday dawned with a determined Willa Rae.  She decided this camping isn’t her thing.  She spent hours digging and sold all of her finds to Tawny Bifrost for quite a bit of money.

She was just calling around to see if anyone wanted to hang out when she realized even though it’s Sunday she still had work!

She arrived back at the camp earlier than expected because she was demoted!  A boy from work, Bruce Leive, came home with her.  She didn’t mind getting demoted if it meant cute boys follow her home.

And Bruce seemed to feel the same about her.  They really had chemistry!

Both feeling hungry, they headed for a date at the All-in-One Shack for some food.

They did a little smustle dancing which was kind of awkward so close to the table!

They had a lot of fun joking around.

And in the end, there was a little more than joking.  Willa Rae has a definite crush on Bruce but she is her mother’s daughter and darned romance sims are hard to please so she immediately decided she wanted to make out with more sims!

She arrived at the arcade to play pool like she does on most days and realized she knew this man.  Didn’t her mom almost marry this guy?  Why is he so young?  (LOL!  Freaking Sims 2 aging!)

And this one?  He’s the jerk that got Twyla Fae pregnant!  She decided to hustle him to get back at him even if she’d never met the poor girl.

But he seemed to be onto her and took her money instead!

Monday

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.06 PM

Thankfully, she didn’t lose much money because early Monday morning she arrived to rent her very own apartment!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.13 PM

The guy she was renting from was kinda weird.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.15 PM

She found out that it was going to cost more than she’d originally thought.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.16 PM

She went inside and stopped in shock.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.17 PM

Empty!  Completely empty.  She could have bought a small trailer for what she’d paid upfront to rent this place!!!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.19 PM

At first, I thought perhaps this wasn’t the place that I’d planned to move her but then I saw this.  Yes, it’s the place.  LOL!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.21 PM

Trying to decide what to do, she made herself some lunch.  At least the fridge was stocked.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.23 PM

Not having a table isn’t so bad.  The roof area is pretty cool.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.24 PM

Noticing that the trash was knocked over she ran to fix it.  (OMG NO ROACHES PLEASE!)

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.26 PM

This boy was just standing there watching her so she walked over to chat.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.30 PM

Just chatting and playing red hands is kinda boring.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.35 PM

So they went to the arcade.  Geeze dude, we know you don’t like her but do you need to think about it constantly???

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.45 PM

She was hungry and pool was boring so off to the All-In-One Shack.  I guess he couldn’t wait because he started grilling.  (Why do I keep forgetting to write down names???)

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.46 PM

The chef’s special… always.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.48 PM

Expensive tastes.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.49 PM

Oh no!  It’s that creep who steals people’s wallets!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.51 PM

Maybe she can make him go away.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 05.00 PM

The outing over she headed back to her apartment… to sleep?  I forgot this happens after a good outing or date!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 05.00 PM 001

So, she spent most of the night digging in the building’s yard looking for things to sell so she can get more furniture than just a bed.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 04.27 PM

Oh, also, I didn’t realize until I’d saved several times that all of Willa Rae’s relationships were wiped out because I’d messed up the first time I tried to move her.  Her family tree and memories are all intact though.

Orphans

Sunday

Sunday morning cereal for breakfast.

Now, this is a house full of kids, you didn’t really expect them to save that fish money did you?  They ordered a gaming system.

And some remote control toys!  A stray dog zeroed in on the kids and convinced Abby Lyn to play some fetch.

Then, as soon as Abby Lyn turned her back it knocked over the trash!  Archie went over and scolded it and then shooed it away.

The girls hadn’t finished their homework Friday night so the teens thought it would be a good idea to take care of it then.  Neesy Lyn and Abbie Lyn have such a horrible relationship she can’t even help her!

Archie decided that they shouldn’t waste all the money on toys and headed out to get some groceries.  He was surprised to find that this little grocery store was nicer than most of the other places they’d visited in Riverside!

He couldn’t resist buying another game for the console before he left, though.  Spore!

He arrived home and put the groceries away.

The younger girls had been taking naps before he got back since they’d woken so early but ran out to see the cool new game.

Monday

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.06 PM

It was 2:30am and the entire house was awake with almost full energy!  If you’re not familiar with Sims 2 you might not know that they can’t sleep unless they’re tired.  You can’t just have them top off their energy!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.08 PM

The kids all began jumping on their beds.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.12 PM

Two of them can jump at once.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.09 PM

The teens were the only ones that actually needed something.  I don’t remember him liking her before… it’s just been so long!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.14 PM

A rousing game of Spore.  I love that game.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.23 PM

Then, they were all off to school.  It’s funny watching all six of them board the bus.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.28 PM

The teens arrived home first bringing some girl with them.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.34 PM

She just kinda did her own thing so I left her to it.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.30 PM

Thanks to the early morning bed jumping shenanigans the kids all came home exhausted.  So exhausted that apparently, Abbie Lyn fell asleep standing up just as she was about to crawl into bed.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.40 PM

Get out of the house creeper!

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.43 PM

Most awkward age-up ever!  Standing in the doorway waiting for her brother to finish with the toilet.  I forgot that the new day starts at 6pm.  I thought their birthday was the next day.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.47 PM

Yes, theirs.  I also forgot that they’re twins.  Yikes.  Abby Lyn aged up as well.  Despite one of them being born second and thus not subject to the pacifier issue they look identical to each other… and Ginger Rae.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.49 PM

This girl stole their paper.  She’d hung out in a group with Stevie Ray and Vaughn one day.  Weird.  Maybe one of them turned her down?

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.52 PM

Since they’d napped after arriving home they were, once again, wide awake late at night.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.54 PM

I didn’t bother looking through the girl’s new clothes yet.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.57 PM

I did need to find a way to get rid of their elementary school homework.  Which can’t be deleted.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.57 PM 001

But it can be nuked.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 06.58 PM

Archie woke up and started cleaning all of the house.  It was such a disaster.

Screen Shot 08-23-18 at 07.02 PM

And Otis Lee hadn’t done his homework so he helped him so he could get to bed faster.  Neesy Lyn woke up and started helping clean too.  And that’s where we’ll leave them for now.

Fannie

Friday

I moved a toy up into the upstairs room so that when she wakes up early and escapes her crib she has something to do.

So sweet.

Teaching the toddlers anything without smart milk takes so long!  She’ll age up soon so I’d like for her to learn it all.

His face!  Poor guy looks heartbroken to have burned the grilled cheese.  Well, he is in the Culinary career after-all.

Speaking of which, he needed fun before leaving for work.  Wade had the day off which was nice.  Still not potty trained.

The darned nanny showed up again!  I had him call like an hour before she should have shown up to cancel the schedule but it didn’t take apparently.  Another §95 down the drain.

Time to work on those skills some more.

Saturday

Awe these two are so sweet.  I didn’t expect to get so attached to the parents!  Also, look who showed up yet again!  Nothing like ruining a romantic moment nanny!  Also, can you clean that dirty plate or actually do something with the child since you’re here.  Another §95 and I had them call again to cancel the schedule!

Fannie has learned to walk and now it’s time to learn to talk.  She’s so adorable!

Well, at least they were responsible parents and waited for Fannie to be asleep!

Meanwhile, someone had turned on the tv and Peppa was entranced!

Back to the potty training.  Sheesh.

More cuddles for Peppa.  Both of them were a bit stinky.

Daddy comes in to play.  I really love this interaction but hardly tell them to do it because it almost always results in the parent needing a bath since the toddler throws up on them.

Speaking of baths.  First, it was Fannie’s turn…

And then Peppa’s.  He looks like he’s just floating there in this pic!

Ivy

Friday

Just like in her sister’s household after a promotion Ivy’s parents now work opposite schedules and no longer need a nanny!  Thankfully, they had never scheduled one.  Wake up, daddy!

Awe so cute.

Breakfast time.  Ivy has been upgraded from bottles to baby cereal.

And then she learns some words.

I caught Kincaid mid-leap and had to take a pic.

Mom gets home from work and now it’s her turn to care for Ivy while dad gets his needs up before leaving to work himself.

Mom and Ivy both needed fun so they played an adorable game of peek-a-boo that even had me laughing.

Saturday

While Ivy was waiting for daddy to wake up Ichapod came into the room.  It’s only fair that he gets a hug since Kincaid already did!

Breakfast with daddy again!

And now that she’s learned to talk Ivy begins learning to walk.

While Ivy was sleeping Ezra spent a few hours chatting with the only sim he knows becoming friends so that Drienna gets a promotion.  Who is he chatting with?  Mark that Neoma dated at the very beginning of T-Park!

They are so sweet together.  Like I said about Fannie’s parents, I really didn’t expect to get attached.

More learning to walk…

While the cats play nearby and entertain me!

Part 3

The Runaway

Friday

Since she’d been out so late the night before, Willa Rae slept most of the day.  She woke and headed to the gym to use the toilet and shower before the first day at her new job.

A promotion!  She was promoted to Numbers Runner.  Gambling?  That’s right up her alley.

She headed to the library to study up in hopes she could impress her superiors and get another promotion soon.

When she caught sight of her older twin brothers she went to chat.  But Stevie Ray wasn’t very happy to see her.  He didn’t understand why she would run away to live in a tent!

Deciding to prove to her brothers that she’s doing good she invited them to hang out at the arcade and even invited Noelle thinking the presence of a pretty girl might soften them up.

Ohmygosh!  Noelle had her wallet stolen!  Willa Rae decided to report the jerk.  Tricking people out of their money is one thing but flat-out stealing is different!

LOL!

Vaughn went into the indoor playground and they all had fun just goofing off in there.  By the time the boys left their relationship had increased significantly.

Then, after they left she spent a few hours practicing pool hoping there would be someone to hustle.

She arrived back to her little camp realizing she was barely tired and did a bit more digging.  Perhaps she’d find another of those maps!  There was a crazy lady named Tawny Bifrost who actually makes money selling rocks and bones so she saved those to sell her.

Saturday

After sleeping most of the day, Willa Rae went to work and then returned a few hours later.  Teens don’t work very long.

At the gym yet again she saw another teen boy, Blake Brooklyn, and introduced herself.

But, there were more interesting things to do than chat with boys!  She attempted to hustle Christian Love but apparently, he’s better at playing pool than he looked.  Perhaps he hustled her in turn!

She popped upstairs to send off a quick email to her parents assuring them once again that she’s fine on her own.  Stevie Ray and Vaughn made it sound like their parents weren’t overly concerned but she thought it was a good idea anyway.

Then, she grabbed some cookies from the snack machine before heading back to the camp.  More hotdogs sounded terrible!

Extras…

Ohmygosh everyone’s relationships are terrible!  Neesy Lyn doesn’t have many fans.

The Orphans

Friday

In the morning before school, the boys played a little cops and robbers.

The older kids all came home from school with improved grades which was a huge boon in Neesy Lyn’s case because she was almost failing!

Probably not the best idea not paying the bills on time guys!

The teens help the younger boys with their homework after the girls went to bed forgetting that it’s Friday and there’s no need!

They both feel confident that they’re doing a great job so far.

Saturday

The kids all had a nice relaxing Saturday morning.  They’re used to waking early for school so they were up quite early.

Soon, they started to feel restless and decided to visit the Riverside Mall.

First things first Odis Lee needed some everyday clothes that weren’t outerwear!

They indulged in some pinball games and found that there wasn’t much else to do there and headed in search of more entertainment.

They went to the park next.

I feel like all my sims eat is hot dogs!

The kids had fun fishing.

And once they had all eaten and taken care of any other pressing needs they all spent several hours fishing.

And arrived home just as it began to pour.  Exhausted, they all fell into their beds.

Extras…

What’s the penguin doing here?  It’s summer!

The kids made quite a bit selling those fish!

Fannie

Wednesday

I don’t think Drew minds Fannie waking him up in the middle of the night to be changed.

Ohmygosh Peppa!  Don’t challenge Leader of the Pack!!!  Darned small dogs always think they’re the big ones and big dogs think they’re little!

I had to rearrange the bathroom because I realized there was no tub!  This involved moving the door to the bathroom into the guy’s bedroom, ugh.

Fannie aged to toddler.  Why do all of my girls age up with that hair???

Much better.  She is freaking adorable!

I think Peppa enjoys having a buddy on the floor with her.

Thursday

Drew had day shift and now it’s Todd’s turn to care for Fannie.  He really needed a shower but toddlers come first!

Awe so sweet!

After a bath and a short nap for Fannie, it’s back downstairs.

Look at Peppa on the other couch like she’s ruling over the roost!  Love that dog… actually, I love them all!

And so does Fannie!

Todd decided to help with her xylophone playing and she seemed tickled pink when he sang along with it.

I guess we must have ordered the scheduled nanny!  She showed up and sat down reading the paper.  Then charged §95 when asked to leave!

I love this interaction.  So sweet!

And now it’s Fannie’s turn for a bath.

Ivy

Wednesday

I was kind of leary of the new nanny until she did this!  So cute!  I really had no idea this was possible.

The game asked me what I wanted to classify the bouncy seat as and I said a crib so the nanny just keeps putting her in it.  She really doesn’t seem to mind.

A maid was hired.  That’s the only thing you’ll be doing in that bed missy!  I know how you maids are in this game!

I couldn’t stop laughing when she had to squeeze back between the house and hedge to mop up cat pee!

Then, daddy arrived home from work and Ivy was all smiles.

Now, those of you who think that Sims 2 is an inferior game take note: She is watching the nanny walk by as her mom holds her!  So cool.

Ezra needed logic for work so I replaced the little table that seemed to have no purpose with a chess table.  I took the pic because of the funny look on his face though!

And Ivy aged up… with the same freaking hair!

There.  Whew.  I was actually a bit surprised she looks very different from her twin… at least to me she does.

Bath time!  After this, I found the thing to take the censor thing out.  It annoys me when taking baby/toddler pics.

And I decided that since she has this huge house and maybe won’t get as much attention to give her a toddler bed.

Thursday

One benefit of the toddler bed is that they change miraculously out of their PJs when getting up.  But, it’s also kinda weird.

Mom’s needs were finally halfway decent and so she got up to take Ivy to the potty this time.  Look at that chin!  Where did she get that?

I felt like this family wouldn’t want their daughter just drinking a bottle on the floor so got her a highchair.  Hugs for Ichapod!

And then mommy starts teaching her to talk but it didn’t last long before she had to get ready for work.

Kincaid’s eyes couldn’t get rounder I swear!  I could not stop laughing!  So freaking cute.

When I was playing the Orphan’s household I had to re-download those small floor blankets and I also found these large quilted ones.  I swear, everyone that enters this house is obsessed with the cats!

Extras…

I almost lost my mind with her trying to get her to paint for a needed-for-work creativity point.  I realized after like the 5th time that whoever built this house must have placed the easel using move objects and it wasn’t accessible!  Silly me.

The nanny NPC is from a mod in which I access from that wall hanging behind her.  But she was creeping me out constantly going to stand by it!

This boy, who I now realize is one that Willa Rae had a date with, just walked up into their house.  This floorplan is super weird.  I finally got all the gates and doors properly locked.  I think I would have been better off just picking an in-game house.

I did a comparison of the girls just for fun!
