3.7 All I want is a Bedtime Story?

George, Henry and Ivy have finally made some progress on meeting some of the local teenagers. Which I am thrilled about. It also gave me a chance to look at some of the potential spouses for generation 4. The boys have some wonderful options and I’m still not sure who the lucky girl will be, it will be just whoever the heir seems to get along with well at the time or even if I can get them to visit. Unfortunately there do not seem to be as many options for Ivy but we shall see. 😀

Theres a perftectly good bed just down the hall Henry.

………………

George and his father have been getting along really well.

Afterwards George is happy to play in the garden.

Henry is trying to get all of his homework done.

Poor little Ivy has been looking for someone to read to her for the last two hours and is getting very close to passing out. Unfortunately everyone she asks gets their queue interrupted before she gets a chance to lay down. 😦

“I’m tired and no one will read to me”

I’m sure someone will sweetheart you just need to find the right person.

“Will you read me a bedtime story?”

“Well, ummm….I don’t think?”

“Please, I’m very tired”

Ivy! This women stalks your family and takes pictures of the house all the time and you want HER to read you a bedtime story?

“No one else will?”

Wait here comes your Grandma.

“What do you think you are doing?”

“Your granddaughter just asked…”

“Ivy?”

“I need a bedtime story Gramma”

“FELICITY!”

Really, Bea. You can’t read one to her yourself?

In the end I had to send Fliss over to offer Ivy a Story. It was all getting a bit ridiculous….

“Ivy, you wanted a bedtime story?”

“Yes, Mama! I’m very tired”

That was close….

That night we were also visited by a very special guest, our ISBI Founder, RAVASHI!! ❤

Landon is determined to freeze himself, I’m sure of it.

Autonomous Smoochies. Aww.

“Lil, go away..”

I do need him to continue painting you know, he’s never going to reach his LTW at this rate…

“…don’t care”

Well, Okay then.

***

I decided to send the family out on a little outing to the Autumn Festival. A couple of family members had the stir-crazy moodlet, including Fliss. I really need to try to get them all out of the house more.

Why are you buying food? You can create food with the wave of you hand…

“Because I want too?”

Yay, Susie is here! Hopefully Henry will talk to her. Or maybe George? I don’t really care who talks to her because the next torch holder is still undecided but it would be nice if someone did…

Susie stops to talk to another of the town’s teenagers and a potential spouse, she also happens to be Susie’s sister. Their Dad is a White Berry Fairy and their Mum is Emelie Van Gould who is a vampire.

Henry, I think Susie would like to talk to you?

……

Ivy convinces Henry to join her for the pie eating contest instead.

Henry won this round I think.

Nice to see that Susie is pretty typical for a fairy.

Henry you should join her?

“I don’t feel so good…”

sigh..

Ivy has become a little obsessed with the haunted house.

“Something touched my leg”

Really, sweetie? What?

“I don’t KNOW!!!”

So are you going to try it again?

“Of course, it was wonderful”

…….

At least she’s conducted herself in a more suitable manner than Henry. I take my eyes of him for a second and I come back to find him doing this…. Sometimes I’m so glad that Fliss can make all her family sweet-smelling with the wave of her hands….

I leave Fliss to her own devises for a couple of minutes and she decides that she needs to have her face painted.

Ivy’s doing me proud again. Although it’s the autumn festival…she should be having fun not homework.

George and Henry try out the apple bobbing contest. I think they both lost?

Is that right? You both lost?

——

It’s Birthday Time! She may be still covered with the evidence of her recent Pie eating competition – Which she lost – but she’s still keen to become a little older.

She’s so excited.

And this is teenage Ivy. She rolled Born Saleswoman, which is a trait none of my sims have had. So that could be fun to explore if she becomes the heir and speaking of our next heir its George’s birthday tomorrow so its heir vote time.

A/N: Just a warning that the heir vote was supposed to be after this chapter but I ran out of fast running internet and decided to post the heir vote early and get it done while I couldn’t post much else. 

Points are unchanged because amazingly I did get Ivy to sleep on time. 😀

3.6 Making Friends

In the last update Ivy became a toddler and Felicity finally achieved her Lifetime wish. YAY!!

Freed from the responsibility of maintaining her garden all the time, Fliss finally has some extra time to train her youngest child Ivy.

In no time at all, sleep and feeding Ivy when required, Ivy masters the required toddler skills.

Just in time for Ivy to celebrate her child birthday. She rolled Couch Potato for her third trait.

“Nanna will you take care of the dishes, the television is calling to me”

“Ivy, you’re old enough to wash your own now”

I agree

Way to be strong there Nanna…..

The next morning Fliss takes advantage of her new-found freedom.

“LTW complete, all kids are at school. It’s time to relax.”

I’m going to have to find you something else to do….have you finished all the achievements for gardening or reached the top of the gardening Career? No? Well then…”

“I hate you sometimes”

Love you too, Fliss. 😀

Little Miss, what are you doing?’

“I’m sliding”

You’re supposed to be in school

“I’m at school?”

That’s not the same thing…

“Ow!”

Serves you right, you are supposed to be in the class room, not out here skipping class…

“The bus is here, gotta go!”

“I don’t think anyone noticed, Phew!”

I NOTICED!

And I’m pretty sure that kid noticed as well.

Fliss has had this wonderful ability to now revive dead plants. 

It’s very helpful now that I won’t be making her garden as much. 😀

You two are adorable – okay?

Landon is stll automously working on his LTW. I don’t think he’ll acheive it but considering I can’t direct him and Felicity or the children often interrupt him, I think he is doing well.

Fliss harvests her garden getting ready to sell her produce.

Thankfully she also has a large amount of produce in her inventory. Fliss, with her father Vincent tagging along, head into town to put all of Felicity’s product up for sale.

Conveiniently this will help the two of them get rid of the stir-crazy moodlet that they have had for days now.

“The stores closed? THE STORES CLOSED!!!! ”

It’s 2pm on a MONDAY?? Why?….

Thankfully the store next door is open and will take consignments, so Fliss puts her produce up for sale. 

I then realised that Felicity has never registered as a self-employed gardener. Duh! Oh well, lets fix that now. 🙂

Ivy makes it class the following day. It also happens to be field trip day an Ivy chooses to sit next to a girl who I think is named Rosalie. I will have to double check that..either way she is a Van Gould-Puck.

Ivy was the first kid of the bus and was super excited about the excursion.

“Excursion Time, hurry up everyone!”

“Ivy, wait for me! Your running too fast”

“Rosalie, hurry up!”

Ivy you do realise that when Rosalie is fully grown YOU will be the one that won’t be able to keep up?

………

Ivy isn’t the only one of the kids to have befriend one of the Van Gould-Puck’s. This is Rosalie’s older sister Susie. I think there is six kids in all, these two girls are the youngest of the family.

Susie and Rosalie’s house is only small and there seems to be animals everywhere. Susie seems to be very fond of all her pets and they seem to love her back. Henry also seemed to be very popular.

She’s cute and definitely a potential future spouse. Seems like this generation has more potential mates to choose from than previous generations. Which is great!

“Potential Spouse? OMG I’m only in HIGH SCHOOL! I’m out of here!”

“Way to scare her off Lil…”

Oh shhh! She’s only going to work. Obbiously a Neurotic Sim. Hmm, we haven’t had one of those for a while. 😀

George is also working on a love connection. Her name is Mandie .

If the house looks familiar its because this is where Generation 2 & 3 grew up. I really need to get the pictures on the wall back. I forgot to take them with me in the move! 😦

George decides to send a text to Mandie rather than try to talk to her. Seem like George has got all shy which is a change…

George she’s right behind you!

“Nanna, we went to the crypt and Rosalie was SO scared but I wasn’t! I saw a ghost but I still wasn’t frigtened but now I’m tired. Can you read me a bed-time story?”

The boys both decide that I have had it too easy recently and conspire to lose me points. First Henry….

Damnit, Henry!! I haven’t had one of this generation fail on me inages. 😦 -5

And the George brought home by the police for a second time for breaking curfew…

*****

A/N: Hopefully, there isn’t too many errors etc on this update. Everything has suddenly slowed right down as if we have gone over our download limit for the month. 😕 I will check it properly when I get a chance but since I had already run through the first edit I’m going to risk it lol.

3.5 Breaking Curfew

We return to this branch of the Young’s while the family is resting.

George is reading with his Nanna Bea. I don’t know what it is about this family but everyone always seems to be reading. It may have something to do with the amount of bookcases this house seems to have.

Felicity’s pregnancy has just began to show. Fliss has wished for another boy but personally I would like her to have a girl.

“Am I the only one thrilled that I am going to become a grandparent again? Took you long enough, Fliss”

“Mum!”

“Leave her alone dear, she’s very busy with her garden.”

“Thankyou Dad”

Henry has been happily playing with the sprinkler whenever he gets the chance. He doesn’t trample the garden too much. 😛

Beatrice seems happy with her new appearance and is always checking herself out in the mirror. Unlike her last birthday when she stressed out over every little wrinkle. Mid-Life Crisis’ will do that to a girl.

“I did NOT have a Mid-Life-Crisis”

Uh yeah, you did. 🙂

George aged up when I wasn’t paying attention. He received the Social Butterfly trait. So hopefully this pushes him to meet lots of people.

Now that her garden has finally started to thaw out Fliss gets back to work pursueing her Perfect Garden. Her pregnancy is really starting to show too.

Unfortunately it happens to be a full moon and I’ve forgotten to fence the garden…. Zombies spent most of the night devouring the garden. 😦

“Oh my Plumbob! My daughter’s having a baby!”

It’s not the first time that has happened Vincent, why the freak-out?

“Argh!!!”

It’s a little girl, yay!!! What are we naming her Fliss?

“Ivy. She looks like she has wings!”

I can see that! Fliis, it’s a pretty name.

Ivy was born with the traits Light Sleeper and Brave,

“She’s Beautiful!”

Glad you think so, Poppy. 😀

Here we go, once again we have a rush of people wanting to hold the baby!

Daddy’s rather smitten too, I see?

George was invited to visit with Simone after school one day. There is definite spouse potential here. 🙂

“Lil, I only just had my birthday!”

I know…

George stays at Simone’s til all hours and as soon as he goes to leave gets picked up by the cops! I guess this would count as a game forced visit by the police. -5 😦

You’re late…

“I’m not that late”

1am’s not that late…really?

“No”

You think you got away with it don’t you?

“Seems that way”

Wait for it….

“JUST WHAT KIND OF TIME DO YOU CALL THIS! I WAS WORRIED! YOU DIDN’T EVEN CALL!”

Told you. 😀

…..

All Landon does the next morning is autonomously let George off the hook….

“He needs to go to school?”

This family is obssessed with the sprinkler, I still think that George should be grounded inside but I didn’t get a say in this one…

“See I DID get away with it!”

………

Beatice is outside relaxing in the hottub.

Is Vincent going to join you?

“Hopefully, but I think he’s still to busy cooing over the baby.”

Felicity is getting close to her LTW needin only 2 more perfect palnst to reached her goal.

Opps, sorry Henry I forgot it was your birthday today!

“…………”

So, Umm, Mooch huh?

“That’s what happens when someone forgets your birthday….”

………

Henry isn’t the only birthday today. Ivy is also ready to become a toddler.

When Henry gets home he takes a moment to put his exhausted sister to bed.

You’re turn, Henry! Lie down before you fall down!

Ivy always has someone willing to help her out.

When her Nanna finally puts her down she takes the opportunity to play some music.

And to finish off this update we will leave everyone with Felicity achieving her Life Time Wish of a Perfect Garden!

3.4 Surprise Birthdays

A/N: Just a heads up that I seem to have lost some pics so there will be a small time skip. Very small.  The missing may be on my old computer and I just haven’t uploaded them but I really can’t be bothered checking, its been a while since I played this save so IDK?

***

In the last update Felicity and her boyfriend Landon got married and little Henry was born. Because it was winter and her garden was a little frozen, Fliss was making good use of the time by making sure her eldest son George was learning all of his important toddler skills.

We start off this update after a long ISBI play break and we find Fliss busy chatting to her plants. These are the few she has growing in the garage. The pursuit of  a perfect garden cannot stop just because of the weather.

Hubby Landon is taking his sweet time coming home from work and is busily building a snowman in front of his place of work.

Henry has had a little growth spurt last time we saw him he had only just been born. So fair he looks a lot like Dad but his eye colour comes from his mother.

Fliss’s outside garden is waiting for spring….. for some reason it won’t let me turn off the sprinklers….because Landon really needs the temptations. :/

Fliss garden inside is going okay.. She has a few Perfect Plants but she still has a few to go. I think we are at 5/8 perfect plants and we have used winter as a oppotunity to work on those plants that aren’t perfect yet and can still be grown inside.

I also notice that both Beatrice and Vincent have a locked in wish to have five grandchildren. That’s really going to fairly easy to obtain as they already have four. Felicity’s older sister Ester is now married to Waylon Wolff. They have two children, Cora and Ray. Dewey has been a disappointment though.

Felicity is also still trying to get all of George’s training done. It’s only hours until he is due to age up and he still a little short on a couple of his skills.

Felicity does eventually get the training finished and she wastes no time bring George to the cake.

George received the Absent-Minded trait for his child trait.

The ISBI is on the basic and Fliss is also ready to celebrates her birthday. 😦

This save got a little messed up when I had a little ageing problem in all my saves which forced me to reinstall the base game in the hopes of fixing it. It didn’t really affect the others because most of them are on epic life spans but this one now has a lot of birthdays queued for today. 😕

It’s also time for Beatrice to become an Elder!

Ahh! You’re adorable!

“Shh!”

Well, you are..

Btw Landon celebrated his birthday too but I totally missed it! He’s a little tired as a result, he’s birthday interrupted his sleep.

Landon, really? Go to bed before you fall down!

“But I’m hungry?”

…..

George is also in danger of passing out. I get Fliss to read her son a bedtime story but Felicity is exhausted as well hopefully she awake long enough to get to bed herself.

In the end it is Nana Bea who finally gets George to sleep. Amazingly after a few unplanned birthdays and sleeping false starts everyone who needs to be is asleep and no longer in danger of passing out.

Good Job All. 😀

Vincent when he finally awakens chooses to clean the toilet rather than other more fun activities

Cleaning again. Vincent = Awesome. 😀

Sitting on your butt watching TV still in your robe?

“I’m no the torch-holder anymore I can do what I want and you can’t do anything about it”

No need to sound so happy about it!

Uhh, Landon do you remember what happened last time.

Landon is also still working towards his LTW albeit slowly. He’s halfway with both the Music and Painting portions of his LTW, which I can’t remember the name of right now….

Georges’s very first day at school.

While Fliss finally gets started on Henry’s toddler training.

It seemed to happen way to quickly but it is also time for Henry to celebrate his birthday. He receives the Heavy Sleeper trait to go with his Loves the Outdoors and Coach Potato traits.

Bea reads Henry the bedtime story he requested and it isn’t long before the birthday boy is fast asleep.

“Landon, I’ve been thinking that’s its time that have another baby”

***

No changes to the score this time. 🙂

3.3 Frozen

Okay, so, it turns out I’m an idiot…. after saying that little George’s hair is a default hair, I realised it wasn’t. It isn’t even from Landon’s family tree, it’s from Felicity’s. 🙂 Anyway the sim to blame for our newest family member’s hair colour is none other than his grandfather Vincent. So, um, duh? In my defence it has been a while since I have actually played this save, though I am really looking forward to some actual new gameplay.

With George now a toddler, I actually allow Felicity time to interact with her little man.

It’s about time….”

Sorry, but your the only one I can control. If the rest of your family wants to look after George I’m going to let them.

……

The reason for getting Felicity getting to spend some time with George is because he needs to be trained (at least as much as possible)

It seems to be getting harder to drag Landon away from the easel. Which really isn’t too bad considering that he needs it for his LTW, if he can reach that achievement he can dance all the time in the future. 🙂

Unfortunately, when he isn’t being productive he’s making things harder for Fliss. Frozen Solid -5 😦

“Help me?”

Playing with the garden sprinkler when it almost winter isn’t smartest move in the world there Landon…

“Hel….”

Yep, Yep, Yep, she’s on her way. but you really need to not do this sort of thing.

In the end it wasn’t Fliss that saved her boyfriend. It was Beatrice.

“Lil, where on earth did you find this one?”

Umm, it seemed like a good idea at the time?

“Okay, well hopefully all my grandkids get their smarts from their mother”

“Hey!”

“Wow honey, your skin is blue.” “It is? Oh, right. Well I’m really cold.”

“Great job there. You really made a great impression on my mother.”

As long as you still like me, I don’t really care about your mother’s opinion of me.”

Beatrice makes her escape from the frozen man in the backyard and decides to engage in an activity which I’m not sure is any better that the one that froze Landon.

“It’s heated!”

It’s still outside!

I think Landon is going to okay in the long run. Fliss certainly seems to like him and it’s not like any of the heir’s partners have had a wonderful relationship with their mother-in-laws. Rava used to get very upset with Vincent stealing her grandchildren away from her. 😛 It also seems that Fliss and Landon have managed to find some alone time without me being aware of it. Their second child is on the way.

“Shouldn’t I be married by now?”

Probably…

“Well?”

Fine, go and propose then…

“Married now?”

No time like the present. Yay! …..

During the rest of her pregnancy Fliss is a very busy girl.

Most of George’s training needs to be done…

“It’s nearly finished!”

That’s good, because we don’t really have that long until his little brother/sister arrives.

There is still a little bit of time to relax. I let Fliss read with her father because for some reason I find it adorable.

George spends his alone time still working on his skills. I think I like this boy. 😛

And since Landon now seems to be ignoring the winter his is busy working on his painting. 🙂

He’s also learning to become a more powerful witch.

I always forget that he is one. The wings make one side of his heritage obvious, the witch side is hidden until he chooses to pull out his wand. :/

He’s also pretty good about spending time with his son. Aww. 😀

Finally, its time for Fliss to have the baby and this time its another boy. Keeping with the naming theme this little one’s name is Henry. +5 🙂

And now I’m out of photos – time to play the actual game. 😀 😀

Points stay the same for this update. With little Henry’s arrival gaining us +5 and his father’s frozen adventure costing us -5 😕

3.2 Getting Down to Business

Where were we?

Oh right, Fliss and her newly aged friend Landon are getting to know each other a little better and look I finally remembered his name. 😛

Because this is an ISBI and there are no long courtship’s in this world, Felicity wastes no time in asking Landon to go steady and so she has access to her new boyfriend all the time, she also asks him to move in.

Felicity also wastes no time showing Landon where the hot tub is located.

Landon also proves to be a little grabby but that’s okay, we will be aiming for babies fairly soon.

When the both are finally tucked up in bed. It seems Landon is thinking the right way. Babies!!! 😀 Very, very soon…

The next day we find out that one of Landon’s favourite pastimes is dancing. Like most fae when there is music playing he is  usually doing this. 😀

I also discovered a few previously unknown facts about our new member of the family. Landon’s full name is Landon Goodfellow, he is the son of Veronica Goodfellow and Philip Crumplebottom. Besides being a Fairy, it seems that Landon is also a witch. Duel Occult! That’s a bonus! 😀  Landon’s traits include Artistic, irresistible, Family Orientated and Night Owl and Love of the Outdoors.

Landon’s LTW is to be Master of the Arts which will require him to master both the Guitar and the Painting Skills both are skills that sims will learn all by themselves so Landon may have a hope of actually completing his LTW.

When we check outside it seems that winter is showing itself early and I will need to discover a way to keep Felicity’s quest for the perfect garden on track. Planters in the garage, perhaps?

I send Fliss to find her new boyfriend for some fun, I think it’s time for Generation Four to get started – don’t you think? Felicity needs something or someone to help keep her occupied over the winter since it looks like her garden will be mostly dormant. 🙂

Fliss: I’m okay with that!

I thought you might be. 😛

I also discover that the two new love-birds woohoo place of choice is the hot tub.

Okay then……!

Anyway, it looks like they had fun.

Autonomous affection is the best kind, I believe. 🙂

And Fliss’ new fascination with the toilet bowl indicates that Fliss and Landon’s encounter in the hot tub had the desired results. Generation Four is on its way.

Over the following days Fliss and Landon get to know each other better and there autonomous smooching makes me think that this match is a good one.

Felicity’s pregnancy is also becoming more and more obvious and Landon seems to be very attentive.

Fliss is still busy upgrading all the appliances on board.

“I’m never going to finish this, I’ve barely started.”

Either way the more you upgrade the fewer you will need to fix in the future.

“………”

Finally, it’s time to welcome our new arrival. It seemed to happened really quickly or it may not…for some reason there are barely any pics of Fliss’ pregnancy it’s been a while since I’ve been in this save. Oops.

Both of Felicity’s parents arrive to freak out about the birth.

It’s a boy! +5 🙂

Felicity and Landon name their first child George. His traits are Love the Outdoors (just like his dad) and grumpy.

The family soon becomes accustomed to the new arrival and Bea can often be found looking after her first-born grandchild, which is always a wonderful moment in an ISBI.

Grandpa also helps out.

Even Landon spends time with little George. In fact I have rarely needed to send Fliss to tend to little George, the autonomous members of the house seem to be doing a great job of looking after the new arrival. I think it helps that both Beatrice and Landon have the Family Orientated trait.

In fact the only one not looking after the baby is Felicity.

“And whose fault is that?”

Mine… I know. I’ve been keeping you very busy but everyone seems to be doing a great job. 😀

“…….”

Bea and Jules continue to spend time together, even if it is just reading quietly together.

Thankfully, it is soon time for little George to celebrate his birthday. 😀

The entire family joins in the celebrations. George ages up into a cute little toddler with his mother’s eye colour and hair from a don’t know where…. thanks ea for the default hair… :l

Fliss seems to be very fond of her first born which is a good thing.

“He’s beautiful”

I’m glad you think so. 🙂

Now Points… Little George made his first appearance so yay more points. +5 😀

3.1 It All Begins Again

So if you haven’t met her before this is Felicity, the Torchholder for Generation Three of A Young ISBI. As a quick recap, Fliss’ LTW is to have a Perfect Garden, the Traits that she has to help her with this little project include Lucky, Green Thumb, Friendly, Heavy Sleeper and Slob.

With that in mind I send her out to toil in her garden that was started by her mother Beatrice in Generation Two.

Fliss inherited a number of things from her mother including Hair Colour, Eye Colour and a half-finished garden. The other important skill she inherited is Genie Powers. YAY!

Because this is Fliss’ first full day as a Young Adult, Felicity is soon interrupted by the need to attend her Graduation. The entire family gets dragged along to see Fliss receive her diploma.

At the ceremony Fliss gets voted as Most Popular and something else which I missed. oops. :/

”Your already missing stuff….great….”

Oh, honey. You know you are my main concern. Your Parents are the one I won’t be paying much attention too anymore.

Beatrice: ………..

After graduation I send Fliss of on a little visiting spree.

”Why am I here?”

No real reason, just making sure that you meet someone who may be important later.

”Why am I introducing myself to a teenager?”

Call it tradition? hehe.

”What, why?”

I’ll tell you later. Just check his age, he can’t be THAT much younger than you. You only just graduated

”He’s seven days younger”‘

See he’s older than both your father and grandfather were.

”Older than they were when?”

Meanwhile, Vincent was running into some of his relatives. This is Vincent’ mother Mary, she’s actually one of the sims created by my husband and she’s been a very busy girl. I think she had at least seven children to about 3 different sims.

And just graduating is Vincent’s brother, I’ve forgotten his name.

Once I get Felicity home and rested, I send Fliss out to work on her garden. We have a little bit of time before Fliss’ future husband becomes a Young Adult so Fliss will be busy trying to get her garden as established as possible in the meantime.

I also send her out fishing, but because that skill is not one I’ve ever really worked on before and I read somewhere it could also come in handy for Felicity’s little garden.  Unfortunately I was a little too ambitious with Felicity’s first choice of fishing hole.

“Why am I here? In the graveyard? Surrounded by ghosts and that creepy Vampire family that won’t stop staring…”

Sorry Fliss, I made a mistake. We can go home now…if you want?

Kitty – It’s a genie.

Great observation there, cat. 😕 Fliss it’s home time. 🙂

At home Bea has her own problems.

“What the hell?”

I have no sympathy for sims who go outside to check on lights when they have been warned about aliens.

……

The aliens decide to abduct Bea.

Beatrice: So mean.

I’m sorry baby, its nothing I can stop.

The following day we are out fishing again while we wait for Fliss’ little garden to be ready for harvest. We are once again too ambitious and poor Fliss catches no fish.

Over the next couple of days Felicity’s days are taken over with fishing and gardening. After a number of fails of the fishing variety we end up sending Fliss back to somewhere that should be very familiar – Felicity’s old home and the pond that was originally made for her uncles.

With a certain someone finally making the transition into Young Adulthood, its time for a little matchmaking and I get Fliss to invite the young man over for a visit.

After the initial awkwardness of meeting for the first time, the two find a common middle ground.

”I like trees”

“Me too, but I also like flowers”

“I’ll have to pick some for you”

Dawww…..

Well, that escalated quickly….

A/N: So here’s another quick chapter. I probably would have kept going but I got this far and then realised that I can’t remember what Felicity’s boyfriend name is…Fail… That usually would not matter but I’m not at home at the moment – Just taking the opportunity to put out an update when I can’t get to my simming computer and only this and maybe the Wishacy have gameplay pics that are ready to go. 😀

2.10 A Change of Scenery

With Ester moving out and the house feeling a little less congested, I took a look around for some appropriate housing for the rest of our little family. Even though it’s a small household for the moment, it does currently house three generations. In just seven sims days the third of my ISBI heirs will age up. Sticking them all into tiny cramped accommodations seems a little wrong and honestly this house by farfallessims on tumblr is gorgeous! I just had to use it. 😛

I’ve set the families funds back to $0 as the house was a little more than they could afford. Also 😦 -10. Yep, giving myself a cheat penalty but its totally worth it.

Ester: I don’t think this is fair, I don’t even get a chance to look around my new house before you have me upgrading things…

Well, either you do it now or you have to constantly repair them every time they break…this is easier.

In other areas of the house Rava has found the abundance of books in their new library.

While Fliss has found the bar…

and Vincent has managed to find his and Beatrice’s  Bedroom all by himself.. and is also interested in checking out all the books.

Without warning (really did think she had more time) Ravashi gets that floaty feeling…

“Oh Crap…”

No Rava…I specifically got this house with the idea that I would have all three of my heirs for a little bit longer. 😦

Fliss is the first member of the family to figure it out what’s going on.

“Grandma?”

Vincent arrives on the scene about the same time as Grim.

Who is there for quite a while before Bea stops upgrading things and finally arrives to farewell her mother.

Uuh, who are you? Random woman enters house to witness death is weird.

Yeah, I really have no idea who she is. What happened is my game glitched and thinks that she actually lives here and my sims are the uninvited guests. :/

Ravashi shakes hands with Death, happy to enter this new stage of life.

In the following days while mourning the loss of the founder of this ISBI, Vincent and our heir in waiting spend some time together reading.

Preparation for Professional sports…really?

“Go Away”

It’s adorable how you two are reading the same book, and you are up to the same page too. Aww.

…..

Bea is still busy upgrading all the appliances. Poor girl but it needs to be done.

She finishes with the shower and I get her started on the toilet.

“I hate you”

No you don’t. 🙂

Oh, Good Girl.

“A weekend followed by two snow days is no excuse NOT to do you homework”

You’re learning…nice. 🙂 And you actually have a B at the moment. I’m so proud.

Vincent goes to work for the first time since moving to his new house.

Beatrice gets a fresh start on her garden. This time it’s not really for Bea, Felicity has the Green-Thumb trait so chances are high that she will be doing something involving the garden.

Now that we are broke once more I also send Bea to collect a few things that can be seen from the house. Some of these flowers can be worth a fair bit of cash when they are picked Unfortunately, not these ones but still they will look pretty somewhere in the house.

Bea gets started on the electrical appliances in the house. The plumbing ones Fliss can handle when she becomes heir but I don’t want her touching electricity at level 1 handiness.

I do give Bea and Vincent some time together before the heirship passes into their youngest daughter’s hands.

They get to be the first ones to try out the families new hottub.

I send Bea out on the morning of Felicity YA birthday to tend her little garden, it’s the last day I will get to force her to do anything so I’m just trying to get things set up for Fliss. I’m busy soo I completely miss Bea take a bite out of the only food she had left in her inventory after using the rest for fertilizer. Yup, Bea’s done a Snow White on me….

It must have been left over from when we actually had Witches in the active family back in gen 1. I would have thought they would know better. But anyway, My torchholder is out of commission for two hours while her prince is at work not that I could have got him to do anything anyway. 😕

Uh, Fliss didn’t you go to school?

Felicity : Yeah…didn’t feel like it.

With Fliss home from school early we decide not to wait on that whole Birthday thing. She’s about to get hit with the responsibilities of Torchbearer.

And here she is Young Adult Felicity. Her final trait became Lucky (which is nice) and she decided that she wanted to create the Perfect Garden so we will be concentrating on that for the next couple of days while we wait for her future hubby to catch up. She seems to have inherited her Dad’s Eyes & Mouth Shape and I notice that her Great-Grandmother Lucia’s nose is still making an appearance. ❤ This challenge is starting to look like a perfect genetics challenge with all three torchholders receiving the same eye and hair colour.

In other Spare News: Dewey is now engaged to Rosa Crumplebottom and two of our Generation Two Spares Angus and Bernard (Bea’s older brother and her twin) have passed away. Angus  died before his own mother. 😦

2.9 Storytime

Following on from last time. 🙂

With Ester finally home safe and sound after her almost tragic imitation of an ice statue, I now have a chance to check on the rest of her family.

Felicity is busy making a nuisance of herself at a friends place and is asked by her friends mother to leave. Yep, I forgot the name of the friend…my bad.

While Ravashi is still at the school once again doing who knows what.

Seriously where were you when you granddaughter was freezing on the front steps of the building where you work?

Ravashi: “Playing Chess and winning? She okay isn’t she?”

Well, yes. No thanks to you…

Ravashi: “I’m so tired.”

Well, you should have been home hours ago….but no, we had to play chess until we were in danger of passing out. Didn’t we…

Surprisingly, she actually makes it to bed in time. ❤

Beatrice is still obsessing about her appearance. Seriously Bea, you look fine…get away from that damn mirror.

“Hey Mark, honey. I’m soo glad you called”

Yeah, Ester and Mark still have that on-again/off-again thing going on.

Bea and Vincent finally get some time to spend some quality time together.

Which ends up with fun-times in the shower.

Ravashi and Ester are busy with a game of chess. It seems that Ester still hasn’t learnt her lesson when it comes to Bikini’s and winter. A least this time she is inside and not outside becoming a block of ice.

Ravashi is letting her eldest grandchild think she has a chace of winning.

Ester: “I am winning?”

No, you’re not. Sorry Ester.

Ester: “Are you letting me win Grandma?”

Ravashi: “It will be your birthday soon Sweetie, think of it as a birthday present”

When Ravashi and Ester finally give up on playing, Felicity decides it is time try it all out.

She spends so much time trying to learn how to play that she forgets to catch the bus to school.

Beatrice: “What were you thinking, Felicity! Your grades have gotten better but not enough for you to miss school!”

Felicity: “I’m sorry?”

Felicity: “Mmm, pancakes”

Once she finishes her breakfast, she tries to make her mum happy by finishing the homework that she failed to complete the day before.

Ravasahi once again stays late at work. She’s busy streaming video.

I built this pond for Castiel and Bernard way back in generation one so that Castiel could exercise his Angler trait. Now that we have seasons it serves a purpose other than fishing. Vincent does a wonderful job showing his family how it all works.

Beatrice later decides to try it all out for herself. Plus, I love this photo. 🙂

Then I remember the problem with Occults and skating. The problem: they don’t…

Beatrice: “Why don’t I get skates?”

Don’t ask me Bea, I don’t understand it either.

Beatrice: “This is stupid”

Yes. Yes it is..

In the greatest tradition of my sims aging up in the stupidest places ever Ester chooses to age up far from home. Once again in front of the school.

Ester’s final trait becomes Lucky and she wasted no time organising new accommodations in other parts of town.

Bye Ester, you were a lot of fun. Don’t let your Zombies friends bite you, Try not to wear your bikini outside in the middle of winter and stay as crazy as you have always been. ❤ I’ll will miss Ester…

Once Ester has successfully moved out, Ravashi and Felicity entertain each other with their funny faces.

Before Ravashi treats her Granddaughter to a Scary Story. I’m not sure this is really the best place for it. They both have to be cold and Felicity is waist deep in the snow.

Ravashi also attracts a unrendered Stray cat to her story time.

Stray Cat immediately works out what is different about the two individuals in front of him.

I was going to adopt this little ball of fluff into the house. Once he rendered properly he was kinda cute, except when I did he somehow managed to complete destroy the rest of the families aging, Suddenly everyone’s age bar showed them as Elders at the end if their life. 😦 Yeah, I had to quit without saving.

With our final spare now out of the house we receive a 🙂 +10 for not using any Lifetime Happiness Points for Dewey and Ester this Generation.
