Round 2 Complete!

Points: (for fun)

Original: 67 Points

64 for the 64 Original sims (63 living, 1 dead)
+ 3 for 3 new sims: Jill, Tina, and Stephen
+ 1 for Neighborhood Net Wealth.  Currently at: $313,259

That is a total of 71 points so far.
This round was long, but a lot of fun.  The family are all "out of the woods" so to speak since there are no longer any teens raising younger siblings, all the original sims are at least teens or older.  It amazing how quickly they grow up though.  Hope you come back and join us for the spring.

Corcoran 1

Year 7-11 (Winter) -CRASH!!!

Corcoran Family:
Corky Corcoran - Female Adult - Family - Marry off 6 Children - Aquarius
Toby Bruenig - Male Adult - Knowledge - Become Captain Hero - Sagittarius
Hailey Corcoran - Female Baby

Last Round: Corky went looking for a baby daddy and found two men.  Toby Bruenig and Marshall Upton were both lovers of Corky.  Corky fell in love with Toby, who moved in with her, and she found herself pregnant, but with Marshall Upton child.  She gave birth to a little girl they named Hailey, and Toby asked her to marry him, and she said yes.

 Corky is an interesting mother.  She wants to hold Hailey all the time, but then never does anything with her.  I had to direct her to play with Hailey, but she did so joyously.

 Toby let his natural color come back to his hair, and I think he looks great as the redhead he is.  Corky agrees, and they have a good date having a pillow fight.

 The date must have been really good because Corky found herself pregnant again.  This time, for sure, with Toby's baby.

 Hailey had her birthday and grew up into a cute little dress.

 She is very cute, and seems to have her mamma's little nose.

 Toby loves the little girl, even though she isn't technically his, and starts to potty train her.

 He even takes time to teach her to talk.  Her first word...dada.

 Corky finishes potty training Hailey and life got a bit easier for the family.  It's been tough with Corky pregnant, and they had to add on another room and move the master bedroom there, leaving the other room as a nursery.

 Another pop in the new master bedroom.  Corky struggled with the pregnancy, throwing up a lot, and really fighting to keep up with needs.

 She managed to teach Hailey how to walk, even though exhausted and went to be right after this.  Hailey spent most of her toddler years playing with the bunny rabbit, and got up to 7 charisma points.

 Corky calls to the house that it's baby time and.....


The game encountered an error and crashed!  She was just giving birth to twins, and I hadn't saved, and it crashed!  I was NOT happy.  So, reload to the baby Hailey, impregnate Corky and un-promoted Toby and we start again...trying to keep things similar.

 Baby Hailey grows up well, but with a non-pregnant mother, but cuter hair.

 She is still potty trained by Toby and Corky, and Toby does teach her to talk.

 Toby takes some time out to start building a snowman, but never finishes it.  He got the same 3 promotions he got last time, giving the family some much needed money, and the ability to add another master bedroom onto the house....again.

 Corky teaches Hailey how to walk, just like before, but is still not pregnant, and Hailey once again plays with the bunny a lot and get 7 charisma point.

Finally, as the round ends, and winter leaves Fellowship One as a whole, Corky is pregnant again.  It took all round, but things are almost back to where they were, just a couple days off.  This is probably better since there won't be 2 babies and a toddler, as Hailey will be a child soon.  Still no wedding (hoping for a boy to carry on Corky's last name), but the family is overall happy, and doing well.


Roma 1

Year 7-11 (Winter) - Opposites

Roma Family:
Donatella Roma - Female Teen - Knowledge - Become Mad Scientist - Leo
Carmine Roma - Male Child - Gemini
Guido Roma - Male Child - Cancer

Last Round: The family found the same nanny the Rosada's did, and she was good. Donatella fished and played with the twins who grew up into children.  During the party James Jenkins hit on Donatella causing major problems between her and Risto Cooprider, but by the end of the round they were getting back on track.

 Everyone is out at the small pond on the property trying to catch some fish before the pond freezes over for the winter.

 A burglar comes to the house....he's had good luck this round, hitting a lot of houses.

 Donatella gets up and calls the cops who get there and start a fight with the burglar.
 The cop losses...AGAIN!  The neighborhood police really leave something to be desired in this city.

 With all the snow, snowmen are showing up everywhere.

 And everyone is making one it seems.

 Donatella invited the entire Cooprider family over, and seems to have finally made amends with Risto.

 Risto and Kricket even become best friends during this visit.

 Donatella gets to know Risto's sisters a little better, and while they aren't friends, they are closer than they were.

 The snow melted and Donatella gained some fun splashing around in the puddles left behind.

 I have never seen two werewolves on the same lot before, but these two showed up played together and then left.  Although Donatella greeted them both before they wandered off.

 March 26 of year 11 came and it was time for the twins birthdays.

 Guido in his green pj's went first and blew out his candles.

 Carmine followed his brother, making his own wishes.

 Guido grew up into a handsome teen with gray pj's and decided to be a romance sim, with the desire to be a Rock God. He is looking for a Robot girl in her underwear that is not a zombie.  He's got his work cut out for him.

 Carmine, however, broke twin tradition and grew into a family sim who wants to become captain hero.  Perhaps the robbery had something to do with this desire.  He is looking for a boy or a girl who is hard worker and a plantsim, but not blonde.  I guess Carla Brooks is out.

 After a bit of a makeover I can see the very handsome looks in Guido.

 Carmine changes up his look too.

 Carmine brings home a friend from school and get his first kiss from her.

 His romance inclined brother congratulates him on being the first to get a kiss.

 However this is short lived and the girl, and another friend from school get into a huge fight.

 The fight continues for quite awhile, these two really don't like each other.

 Donatella cooks up some dinner while the boys say good bye to their friends.

 The happy family of teens sits down for a quiet meal together.  Donatella, however, looks slightly concerned about the topic of conversation.  Probably kissing, or other things....

Winter ends with the twins out playing on the chess set together, talking and being the best of friends, despite the difference in aspiration and dreams.  Risto and Donatella are back together, and James wasn't seen once all round.

Norwood 1

Year 7-11 (Winter) - OF COURSE YOU DO

Norwood Family:
Beulah Norwood - Female Elder - Romance - WooHoo with 20 Different Sims - Taurus
Channing Norwood - Male Adult - Pleasure - Become a Game Designer - Libra

Shelby Barrett - Female Adult - Romance - WooHoo with 20 Different Sims - Libra
Bruce Norwood - Male Teen - Family - Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens - Gemini
Maxwell Norwood - Male Child - Aquarius
Shasta Norwood - Female Child - Capricorn

Last Round: Beulah got busy finding loves, one, course, being Marshal Upton. Channing had his heart set on moving in Shelby Barrett, and he finally moved in at the end of the round.  The kids did homework and skilled.  Maxwell was stuck to the easel, and the family went to the lake.

 Shelby falls in love with Channing....seemingly while watching him play with his son.

 Shelby tries to get to know Channing's son Bruce by playing chess with him, while Shasta studies up.

 Beulah is the social butterfly of the family, always on the phone...trying to get more lovers.

 Apparently Bruce caught the "check out self" bug from the neighbors.

 Channing spends some quality time with his oldest son at the chess set.  Best purchase ever for this family.

 Then he spends some time painting with his mother.  They are really close, but they get along all right.

 Without any fanfare....everyone sort of forgot, on Oct 3rd of year 11 Shasta grows up into a pretty teenager.  She decides to be a pleasure sim and wants to become a game designer.  She is looking for a fat girl with grey hair, as long as she isn't wearing hats.

 Because he's a twin, Maxwell follows suit, and also wants to be a pleasure sim.  He, however, wants 50 1st dates.  OF COURSE HE DOES!  He's looking for girls with custom or black hair, but no hard workers allowed.

 Shasta decides her pigtails are too young and gets a make over.  She is very pretty, and will make some girl very happy.

 Always with his twin, Maxwell also gets a make over and is a very handsome young man.  He will also make some girl very happy....after he gets his 50 1st dates in of course.

 With the large amount of snow that fell Shelby goes out and decides to build a snowman all by herself.  Being a romancer, the family stuff gets to her sometimes.

 Bruce decides to invite the whole Rosada family over and try to get to know Amethyst a little better.  Things go well and they are soon crushing on each other.

 Right after that ACR takes over and they hop into bed together.  I didn't try and stop them, Amethyst needs some fun.

 Shasta doesn't do as well making friends with the girls, but growing up with brothers who can blame her?

 That night many friends are over for dinner and Shasta seems to have a thing for Aquamarine.  She is already taken, and not gay though.

 By the end of the evening Bruce and Amethyst are going steady.  This may not last through Uni, but I'll try and keep them together.

Winter comes to a close with Beulah doing what she does best with another man from another neighborhood.  With a house full of teens, and dating to be done spring is set to be quite eventful for this family.
