Wake-Up Call

Dale and I brought home two little baby girls from the hospital. First born of the two was Mika who was born with the  Clumsy and Heavy Sleeper traits.

Followed by her twin Eliya who received the Loves the Outdoors and Athletic traits.

The twins settled in quickly, they both really enjoyed playing with the activities table.

The red blocks seemed to be their absolute favourite and I never saw either of them playing with any other colour.

With the twins happily playing upstairs, Grandma told me she had some birthday cakes organised downstairs.

I had known Jaem was ready to become a young adult but the second cake confused me.

“It’s mine”, Lindsay informed me, when she noticed my confusion.


“Mhmm. mine. It’s been a long time coming don’t you think?”

“I ….?”,  I was stunned. I hadn’t really paid much attention to my grandmothers aging before. I knew that she now was… but she hadn’t for so long that I had always taken her youth for granted.

“Time for some cake”, she told me patting my cheek before she moved away.

She walked over to Jaem and gave him a hug.

“I think it’s time for the both of us to get a little older, don’t you think?, Lindsay asked her great-grandson.

With Dale beside me, we all celebrated. Cheering and clapping and generally making too much noise. I wasn’t really in a cheering mood but I plastered a smile on my face and cheered. I’m sure I wasn’t fooling anyone.

It was something that I wasn’t prepared for, since when did my grandmother actually look like one? Until that moment I had never really thought of the possibility of losing her.

Still, I thought she looked wonderful.

Jaem aged up into a handsome young adult complete with a leaf beard. He received the dramatic trait for his final trait.

The quads arrived home from school shortly after the birthdays were completed.

After enjoying  some birthday cake they all immediately sat down and started on their homework. Neither Iselle or Ryne seemed to be finding it an easy activity.

I’ll admit that my grandmother’s birthday had upset me. I ended up spending the afternoon in the rec area drawing trying to take my mind of the days events.

It was bad enough when the children aged up into young adults ready to leave the house. I was going to miss having Jaem in the house, but I knew I would still be able to see him. To visit him if I needed or wanted to.

It was somehow worse when my grandmother aged up to an elder, she had been my the one constant in my life since childhood and suddenly she was aging.

Dale helped out by keeping the kids busy for most of the afternoon while still managing to be close by just in case I needed him.

I found the kids play and chatter soothing but I didn’t feel up to participating in their fun.

Dale finally stopped me in the kitchen to talk to me.

“Are you okay?”, he asked, his eyes full of concern.

I nodded, not trusting myself to say more. Dale pulled me into his arms and kissed me.

“Are you ready?”Dale asked when he pulled away, “Jaem is waiting for you in the lounge room”

“Yes” I said, taking Dale’s hand and walking towards the front room.

Jaem was waiting for me. I was going to miss him, he was certainly one of the most unusual of all my children. I remembered waiting for him to grow and how often he had surprised me even in a household as crazy as ours had been recently.

I gave him a final hug, and then it was time for him to go. As expected he was moving in with Malevin, I wasn’t sure how Aisling was going to react to that but the two boys had sure sounded excited about it.

Brothers and Best Friends

Jaem and Malevin had become the best of friends. Although in some ways they were very different, they both got along well and it sometimes seemed like they were never apart.

Aisling: Seriously guys, this mutual admiration thing that the pair of you have going on is getting annoying.

Malevin: Did you hear something Jaem? My annoying twin by any chance…?”

Aisling: ………….

Jaem: Nope, can’t hear a thing..

Aisling: Ahhaha, you losers are too funny….

I knew it irked Aisling that the boys were spending so much time together, I hoped that she wasn’t feeling too left out.

Aisling took to spending a lot of time in the rec area. Taking out her anger on  the gaming system.

Sometimes that worked out well.

With Breyan and Iselle now aged up to children, Aisling no longer had the girls room to herself.

With the nursery now vacant it became a great place for Aisling to unwind and dance for as long as she wished.

If Malevin and Jaem were not involved in some type of solitary activity, they could usually be found together.

Jaem was proving to be the impatient member of the duo, he disliked having to wait his turn to use the wishing well.

It was almost guaranteed to make him grumpy.

My green boys are just too adorable. 🙂

Jaem was thrilled to finally have his chance to wish for happiness and even when you couldn’t see him Malevin was never far away….

I had delayed the twins birthday for a couple of days so that they could attend their prom along with their younger brother. Jaem ended up both the best and most under dressed student there when he refused to wear shoes with the new tux I had bought him.

After allowing the teens of the household attend their prom, it was time for Aisling and Malevin’s young adult birthdays.

Malevin followed in his nephew Crux’s footsteps when he rolled the Irresistable trait. He plans to max his influence with all three of the New Social Groups.

Aisling received the Angler trait and plans to create the Perfect Aquarium.

Afterward it was  time to say goodbye to my newly aged children.

I will miss them both but I know that will do well in whatever they decide to pursue.

The two of them organised a going away photo before they left just for me. They were keen to find their own place. I am sure that it will not take Jaem long to join them.

Breyan had been spending a lot of time at the home of Faith, one of her school friends. The two to of them spent a lot of time watching television, working on their homework or taking joy rides on the lounge.

Akir came home every night excited about being able to use the trampoline. He was often out there until it was time to go to bed.

Lindsay had been taking every opportunity to spend time with her great-grandchildren, especially at bedtime. The younger kids loved when she took the time to read to them.

Dale and I were now getting along better than we had in what felt like forever.

One thing though, the man never seems to tan?

While I was at least a couple of shades darker than usual due to spending so much time outside with the kids, Dale was still as pale as he had always been.

It didn’t take long for the results of the pollination to show themselves in the form of a tiny baby bump, it would not be long until I was once again waddling.

Throughout my pregnancy Dale and I made sure to spend plenty of time together.

Dale at least, seemed to be excited about the impending arrival and was showing a lot of interest in my newest bump. I think he was trying to feel as involved as possible, I certainly enjoyed the attention.

I been spending the day with my grandmother Lindsay when I finally went into labour,

I know she has been through labour plenty of times herself, so I’m not sure why she was freaking out.

I thought about asking Lindsay to drive me to the hospital, but it was one of those events that Dale always insisted on attending. I was always more relaxed  when he was there holding my hand.


A/N: I’m really not sure when the next update will be. For the first time…..EVER….I am out of screenshots for this save. In fact I need to replay Lucia’s entire pregnancy again because the game crashed on me. I’m hoping to get in-game tonight and just play, which will be nice for a change. Lucia now has only twelve children to go and I do have a couple of ideas for what will be happening next, I just need to time them all properly and also load up a new save so I can find Generation Three’s heir. Crux needs someone to torment (I have a tiny idea for that too). lol.

I also thought that you might all want to see what Malevin really looks like under all of that green.  Like Aisling he is mostly like his father feature wise, but he does have Lucia’s hair colour and the Young’s Grandparent Eye Colour. 😛

Summer is Here

Shortly after becoming a teen Jaem discovered a new talent. We had both been working in the garden when he first showed it too me. Without warning.

The way he could replenish his energy was like nothing I had ever seen. Even Crux’s way of replenishing his brainpower had not prepared me for the moment when Jaem went underground and became a plant. He scared me when he had suddenly disappeared.

Thankfully, he didn’t disappear for long and I could finally relax.

He seemed far more energetic when he resurfaced.

For some reason the entire family suddenly wanted to be outdoors. Not that I could blame them, the weather was beautiful.

Jaem required constant rehydration, so he loved anything that involved water. Malevin also loved being in the pool, while I was busy working on my tan.

Malevin had been teaching himself how to dive. He had some very mixed results but it was all slowly starting to come together.

He also continued to disappear when he entered the water.

Dale had started to swimming laps in the pool daily as part of his new athletic routine.

Breyan loved to spend her day in the sandpit.

In fact the sandpit was suddenly proving to be very popular.

The slippery dip was also receiving a lot of love from both Breyan and Iselle.

I ended up in a game of tag with Ryne.

It involved way too much running for my taste, but Ryne seemed to enjoy it. 🙂

In fact all of my kids seemed determined to keep me active. Jaem dragged me out to the half court to shoot some hoops.

Malevin also spent some time out there on occasion. I had started to notice that my two oldest boys now seemed to have a lot in common.

Because it was summer, the slip’n’slide saw a lot of use.



and Dale all enjoyed it.

Akir was the only one who seemed to be inside more than he was outside. Usually with a book in hand.

I wasn’t surprised that  Grandma spent a lot of her time learning how to use our new science station. It was just the type of thing she had always loved.

Lindsay was also spending a lot of time getting to know her great-great-grandchildren.

I was especially happy that my children had the opportunity to spend some time with her.

Aisling, Malevine and Jaem were all being extremely helpful.

Most nights they would read to the younger children to put them to sleep.

I managed to spend some time drawing. The drafting table was a good place to watch the backyard, I often came here when I knew Dale was outside just to see him.

Today I could see Dale and Malevin talking outside.  The situation was still tense, I wanted everything to go back to the way it was before but I just didn’t know how it could.

The boys had finally allowed me to go outside, after refusing to let me out the door for almost twenty minutes.

“Are you crazy?!” I yelled at Dale.

I was taken by surprise when he just smiled at me glaring at him and pulled me in for a kiss.

When I tried to hit him he just laughed at me, catching my wrists . “Luc, its okay. It’s over”‘

“‘I can’t believe you didn’t tell me!”‘ I glared at him, his smile just made me more annoyed. ”I don’t know why you’re smiling. What if you had killed him?”

If anything his smile grew wider.  “Not likely…” he told me, “he fainted”‘

Jheran and Bael had followed me outside and I could hear their reaction to that piece of news.

“He what?”‘

“I barely touched him…” Dale explained, ”he fainted”

“He fainted?”I queried, looking at Nicholas lying in the snow. I continued to ignore the laughter behind me.

Suddenly they were  all laughing including the three boys who had just come upon the scene.

“‘Aww, mum. don’t be angry”, Taric said.

“‘Just don’t” I said, rounding on them, ”I don’t want to hear another word about this.” With one final glare at the werewolf responsible the entire event, I turned and headed back towards the house.


It wasn’t long before the blanket of snow that had covered the landscape for most of the winter finally gave way to spring. With his love of the outdoors and his in-born affinity with plants it was appropriate that Jaem’s birthday was occurring in the spring.

Jaem aged up into a handsome teen receiving the Grumpy trait.

It was also time to say goodbye to Crux. I admit that I wasn’t ready to say goodbye but it was time.

He and Dale were in the middle of one of their very one-sided conversations. They seemed to have them all the time now.

I however still wasn’t completely comfortable with Crux knowing my every thought, and Crux knew it.

As a result he always allowed me to verbalise what I wanted to say, rather than answering my unasked questions before I asked them.

“I’m going to miss you” I told him, wrapping him into a tight hug.

“I’ll miss you too, Ma” he told me, “He loves you, you know. Are you ever going to let him off the hook?”

“Of course” I replied, I honestly wasn’t sure why I hadn’t already. I had forgiven him for our little drama, I just hadn’t found a way to tell him. I knew he loved me and I certainly loved him, it should have been easy, right?

“Soon?”, Crux interrupted my thoughts.

“Yes”, I said throwing Dale a guilty look.

As he walked out the door, he turned, and looked at me, “Ma, you have a visitor in the kitchen. Say hi for me.”


“You’ll see”

After Crux at left, I went to see who my surprise visitor was. I was shocked, usually she gave me some warning when she decided to pay me a visit. Still it was wonderful to see her again.


“Oh, hi honey. Miss me?”


A/N: So you may have noticed or may not have noticed that I jumped around a little in the last couple of chapters. In the process I managed to completely miss an important birthday (Sorry Jaem…. 😦 ), Dale & Lucia are taking longer to get back on track than anticipated (totally worth it, lol) and a couple of events happened in a slightly different order than what they did in game.   Anyway, this is why this chapter is a little all over the place as it needs to bring all the storylines together so that they match up again.

Bonus Pic: This interaction became available when I was trying to get the pics for this chapter. It isn’t going to fit anywhere, ever but I thought it was funny. Dale really didn’t like it when Lucia hit him with the newspaper. 😆

Snowman Scaring

We had delayed Aisling and Malevin’s birthdays for far too long and with the quads due to start toddler training I decided to age the twins up first.

Malevin aged up with the Charismatic trait .

Aisling received the Rebellious Trait.

Almost immediately it became apparent that aging Aisling up to a teen had been a good idea, as she loved looking after the toddlers.

She even helped me out with the toilet training which I really appreciated.

Everyone seemed to spend at least some time in the nursery.

Even Dale helped with teaching a couple of the quads to talk. He wasn’t around as much as he had been previously, suddenly he seemed to be very concerned about his small werewolf pack.  They often went out on small hunts and while I was happy that he and our sons were spending time together…..I missed him.

Thankfully all of the babies seemed to be quick learners because teaching four children at once can be hectic. Breyan was often happy enough playing on the activities table.

With four babies it is sometimes hard to care for each child in a timely manner. Iselle does have the cutest pouty face and I did occasionally leave her in the cot just a little bit longer than necessary just to see it.

Dale also found Iselle’s sad face irresistible.

It was nice to sometimes get a small amount of one-on-one time with the children. Ryne has one of the sweetest laughs.

He was so determined to learn to walk that he had mastered the skill in no time at all.

Finally, we were done. Four toddlers ready to become children.

Dale came home to help out with the birthdays.

Little Ryne was the first to take the step into childhood, he received the Shy trait.

Akir followed rolling the Bookworm trait.

Breyan received the Computer Whiz trait.

Iselle aged up received the Perfectionist trait.

After the quads had all become children it was time for a very special birthday.

Crux was finally coming into his full powers as a young adult. He received the Irresistable trait. I wondered what he was truly capable of.

With winter still in full force, the children started to spend a lot of time on snow related activities. Making snowmen became extremely popular.

Malevin seemed to take great pleasure in scaring the life out of anyone who made one, though.

No one was safe. 

I even went out to help Aisling finish one of her masterpieces.

I?also took the opportunity to get a little painting done. No toddlers = having some time to paint. 🙂

Now that Malevin was a little older, he and Dale discovered a shared interest in sports and the pair could often be found discussing and participating in various athletic  activities.

Malevin also loves to read. Something that he gets from me.

To make full use of his many fine traits, Malevin was also spending  a great deal of time working on his chess skill.

The following day, Crux graduated. When he finally made it back home he was so drained that he needed to regain his brainpower.

He looks handsome in his tux.

AN:  A interesting note that I read somewhere today. If your alien tries to grow a plant sim there is a chance that they will grow an alien plant baby instead.  Something else for me to try at a later date. 😀

Brain Power

It didn’t take long for Crux’s alien powers to manifest now he was a teen, it did take us a little by surprise. It seems that Crux no longer needs to sleep, all he needs to do rejuvenate his brain power (whatever that means?).

I may need to tell him not to rejuvenate at the kitchen table, Alene was a little annoyed with him interrupting her breakfast. Loise was unconcerned but Loise has abilities of her own.

Abilities that she does not hesitate to use. I sure am going to miss her and they way she can clean the entire house with just the wave of her hands. It saves me from having to clean everything myself. Our maid is useless. I wonder why I even continue to pay her….

We had all recently recieved new phones. Dale and I tried out one of the fancy new features.

Dale claimed the photo for himself, I only saw it for a brief moment but all seemed to work fine. Lets all forget the Lucia becomes Dale Fiasco shall we?….it all went well, really it did!!! P

It was the weekend so everyone had a little bit of time on their hands. Aisling, my star student made sure that she got her homework done early on and then spent most of the weekend reading in her room. With Loise and Alene leaving in the morning she was already starting to lay claim to their entire bedroom.

Jaem became one of the only kids to ever use the playground in the backyard.

He loved being on the lookout for anyone and everyone who walked past, if he was outdoors he was happy.

Jaem also like spending time in the pool, he was getting really creative in his use of the diving board.

That evening after everyone was tired and ready for bed, Alene and Crux where asked for bedtime stories by Jaem and Malevin.

They both helped out by putting their siblings to bed for the night. Which I appreciated.

Afterwards Crux challenged Alene to some baskteball.

Even after Crux demonstrated what she needed to do, Alene seem very unsure. I didn’t blame her.

Alene: Crux? This isn’t really my thing, maybe I should go back inside? You know, where its warm and more importantly inside!

Crux: Alene it’s easy, I’ll show you again.

Alene: Umm, yeah, that really isn’t going to help me a whole lot…..I still don’t think this is a good idea!

Crux: Just try it!

Alene: Okay, just one try. I better not fall on my butt….

Alene: Owwww! Crux, I’m totally blaming you!!

After Crux had finished embarrasing Alene on the basketball court, Alene returned inside to an activity she did enjoy. I doubt it will be long before she owns a piano of her own.

Crux however was obsessed and early the next morning he was once again to be found on the court.

Crux also had another obsession. He seemed to contantly be talking to the old mirror in the garage, and I swear that once I even heard it talk back….

After basketball and his encounter with the mirror Crux needed to restore his brain power, Alene will be relieved that it wasn’t at the kitchen table this time.

Afterwards he was back outside to spend the rest of his evening in the spa.

In the morning it was time for Alene and Loise to leave home. I was going to miss them and not just for Loise’s cleaning ability.

I gave my girls the hugs that I desparately needed, I’ll admit that their shared evil trait had me worried.

When I went back into the kitchen after they had left, I found this photo sitting on the kitchen bench waiting for me. 🙂

AN: Just realised what the next chapter is supposed to be……why, oh why did I think that was a good idea? Oh yeah I remember….but that doesn’t mean I have to like it….. 😕

Plantsim Training

Everyone immediately loved little Jaem,

and Dale, I’m sure, loved that  my newest child hadn’t required input from another guy that wasn’t him.

We were still doing well, and so far everything had been perfect but even I was aware that there had to be a limit to his understanding. It was something I really didn’t want to test.

I quickly started little Jaem’s training, Dale was due to leave for work again soon so it was something that I wanted to complete quickly. Trying to find time with both Dale and the other children was also a priority.

There was only one of him so training seemed to progress quickly.

I do think he would have been happier if I had trained him outside, he wasn’t a child that enjoyed being cooped up in the nursery all day.

Dale challenged me to a dunking contest, I still don’t know why I said yes. I am in no way naturally athletic like Dale is and over the years have only made a half-hearted attempt to try anything that has involved running around.

After Dale had finished trouncing me on the basketball court, It was time to teach Jaem how to walk. He was a natural and when he walked he left a trail of flowers behind him whin I  thought was adorable.

While I was busy with Jaem, the other kids were all busy outside. I don’t know how she did it, but once again Aisling had convinced Alene that running around outside  playing tag was a good idea.

Crux had challenged Loise to a water balloon fight.

It seemed to involve a lot of taunts and name calling, but they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

All to soon it was time for Jaem to become a child.

For his birthday Jaem received the unlucky trait.

Alene was still working hard on her bid to become a One Man  Woman Band, Loise was often there supporting her.

The older they became the closer seemed to be. I didn’t see that changing anytime soon.

Crux was busy in the kitchen once again pretending to be a king ruling his subjects.

After he finally became to tired to continue with his make-believe Crux interrupted the girls to ask Loise to read him a bedtime story.

The following morning Crux nearly missed the bus because he was too busy playing basketball. It was to be his last day as a child as he was due to become a teen in the afternoon, his aunts Loise and Alene were also ready to be come young adults.

In the afternoon, after the kids had all come home from school I finally got  around to organising another family portrait.

Then it was time for those very special birthday. First up was my Grandson Crux, he also became a snob. As a teenager Crux also began to be able to access his alien powers. It will be interesting to see how that all works.

He was followed by his Aunt Alene, who I think aged up beautifully. Alene received the Evil trait for her Young Adult birthday. That means that Alene and Loise now share two traits, Workaholic and Evil. These two will either be partners in crime and remain the best of friends or they will end up getting each others way. 😛 Alene’s Life Time wish has been locked in for quite a while. I’m sure it won’t be long until she achieves what she wants and she is already more than halfway to achieving her goal of being a One Man Band.

Because she aged up before her twin, Alene was enthusiastic in cheering Loise on.

The twins birthdays seemed to set of another werewolf transformation in Dale.

I’m not sure why  but birthdays always seem to set him off.

This time it was Crux that couldn’t handle all of the excitement.

Loise also became a beautiful Young Adult, she received the loner trait. Loise plans to become the CEO of a major corporation.

Afterwards we all settled in to enjoy our abundance of birthday cake as a family.

Alene seemed to be a little  woozy since she became a Young Adult, the shock of now agreeing with her sister on certain things must be a little confusing.

Loise seemed to be suddenly fascinated with Dale’s eating habits.

I would have thought that she would have been used to that by now.

I knew it was nearly time to say goodbye to my girls, they would be moving out soon.  I should be used to that it never gets any easier.

A Racing Heart

I’m still working on my little project.

I am having some success, but success at what? I still wasn’t sure.

Dale was still helping out with the garden and we where planning to sell the crop at the earliest opportunity.

Alene is still crazy about her music.

She has even started bringing friends home to jam with he. This particular boy’s skills were a little questionable.

I had taken to  spending the evenings outside in the garden. It had become a daily ritual that even the rain could not deter me from continuing.

This particular evening was destined to change that.  I started to feel a little tingle all over.  It was a sensation that I had never felt before.

I can’t believe that I got hit by lightning!!!

I guess that will teach me for being outside in a thunderstorm. Owww!

Malevin, bless him, decided that I needed one more shock. Thanks kid, like my heart wasn’t already racing…. 😦

Loise was one of the kids sensible enough to stay inside out of the way of lightning. She was content to spend her evening watching television.

After I thought about it, though, I realised that she never seems to go out after dark anymore. Avoiding a second abduction perhaps?

Malevin was busy completing his homework. He already has big plans for his future and a good education is part of that. He is currently on the Honor Roll at school and has been there for some time.

Alene seemed to be the big sister of choice when it was time for the younger children to finally go to bed.

All three of them always asked her to read them their bedtime stories.

We could sometimes tell if she didn’t want to do it on a particular day and at those times either I or Dale would take over for her. That didn’t seem to happen often, though.

Dale has been busy working on his athletic skill he is determined to reach the top as soon as possible, and he’s getting pretty close. ❤

While Dale was busy with his daily workout, I had realised that my little experiment was now ready. If I had done everything right the only thing left to do was to harvest the plant.

It was what looked like a tiny green plant baby. I loved him instantly.

I could at last show Dale the results of out now mature garden.

I named my newest son Jaem, he was born with the traits Loves the Outdoors and Athletic 😀

A/N: There was originally two plantsims but the second one failed. 😦 I think it was because I already had eight sims in the house. I am going to have to check my mods because there have been a couple of things that have been a bit strange. I think I need to go back into MC and SP and check the settings since I replaced them all with the newest versions. 😛
