Brooks 1

Year 12-16 (Spring) - Love is in the Air

Brooks Family:
Brennan Brooks - Male Adult - Popularity - Have 20 Simultaneous Best Friends - Aquarius
Jill Fleig - Female Adult - Popularity - Have 20 Simultaneous Best Friends - Leo
Ian Brooks - Male Teen - Popularity - Have 20 Simultaneous Best Friends - Aries
Carla Brooks - Female Teen - Family - Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens - Aries

Last Round: The Brooks house grew the last time we were with them when Jill Fleig fell in love with Brennan and moved in.  Both Ian and Carla grew up into teens and chose their respective LTW's.  Close to the end of winter Ramsey died at the age of 54.

 The common way to start and end every day in this family is to do it with dancing.  Carla and Jill bond some over dancing before school on morning.

 Jill and Brennan officially fall madly in love with each other.  Unbeknownst to Brennan, he's got some competition for Jill's attentions though.

 On Friday night Carla and Ian go check out Inter@ctive and have a good time hanging out with some of the other teens that go there.

 Ian spends some time getting to know some of the other teens in the neighborhood as well.  They leave before it gets too late.

 During Saturday at the lake we find out that Ian has a secret crush on Jill, and she returns the affections, somewhat.  This spells trouble.

 Brennan doesn't seem to notice that his son has been flirting with the woman he loves and they dance away.  Ian starts talking up the other girls at the lake to try and take his mind off Jill.

 Since Carla wants to raise puppies and/or kittens, and the whole family was wanting a pet the family adopted a couple of dogs. Ian goes out to great Onyx.

 Carla spends some time with the families other dog, Otis.  The dogs got along ok, but weren't very friendly right away.

 Ian and Carla were wanting dates of their own, although I'm sure Ian was partially trying to forget about Jill.  As there were kids both of their age in the Brandt family they invited them over for dinner.  Haley and Ian instantly hit it off.

 Jill's name is slipping out of his mind more and more.  The only problem is, Jill lives in the same house.  Hopefully Ian can keep thoughts of Haley in his mind as she becomes the newest crush.

 Brennan, seeing his kids beginning to grow up and move on decide it's time to make Jill an official part of the family, so he asks her to marry him.  Her infatuation with Ian seems a mere memory (although they do hop into bed together, naked, from time to time)

 Another family gathering with the Brandt's and it appears Carla has found a match as well.  It's one of the "twins" of the Brandt family, and this one is Kade.  They quickly crush on each other, and will be a good match if it lasts.

 After some time the dogs begin getting along and played together quite well.  There was hope for puppies in the near future.

 On a beautiful day late in spring the wedding of Brennan and Jill was held.  Most of the neighborhood was there, including a very pregnant Corky Corcoran.

 Jill has some of her friends, who were also new move ins to the neighborhood there as well, such as Shelby.  The Brandt family, of course, was over as well.  This family will become tight very quickly if their kids stay together.

 Carla looked very pretty in her dress, and enjoyed the wedding.  It did start to rain, but that didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirits about the day.

 The wedding arch was beautiful, and even though they didn't have much money to throw the wedding both managed to come up with mostly appropriate wedding clothes.

 There was cheering and merriment when the vows were said, and the couple was now husband and wife.  With falling flower petals Jill Flieg becomes Jill Brooks.

 The happy couple kisses romantically in the rain after the wedding.  Jill seems to have completely moved on from Ian and is very happy with her new husband.

 Jill seems very interested in starting a family quickly, and discusses it with Corky.  Either that, or she is asking Corky about having kids so quickly into her relationship.  It seems somewhat prophetic though.

 Especially as Jill soon finds herself pregnant.  There will be a new little Brooks soon.

Jill spends the time she has while on maternity leave taking care of the dogs.  The family truly figured there would be puppies before there were any more children, but it seems that ACR decided differently.  Spring draws to a close and this family has moved into a much better place then where they have been.


  1. It's always great to see active Sims blogs. I still have a nostalgic fondness of Sims 2. Loved the dogs in this round! They're so pretty!

  2. Thanks for reading. I actually have 2 active sims blogs right now. This one and then Breeze Point, which is my prosperity with my own made up families. It's gotten pretty far and can be found at if you ever want to check it out.

  3. The dogs are so cute! I bet their puppies will be adorable. I always end up with similar-looking dogs/cats that breed, so I have like five identical animals running around.

    1. I have the issue in my other hood. :) I'm trying to be different with the Fellowship.
