Chapter 3.9 – Slow And Steady

Well, hello there! Welcome back to the my Drifter family! If you remember, last time, our cowplant Mr. Jingles died right before we got our final essence and Kellen got abducted and is now expecting an alien baby!

I’m excited for an alien baby, so let’s jump in!

Eliza’s enjoying a nice and relaxing bath away from the walking disaster that it Lucas.

Kellen’s baby is getting close! I can’t wait!

… The troublemaker twins look like they’re up to no good. Nothing good can come of these sneaky looks…

And our heir, Hailey, is snoozing the day away!

With the immanent arrival of a new baby, and not wanting to bother building a new room, we’re converting the office into a bedroom. So all of our fish are ALL OVER the house! lol

Caught you, Lucas! You can run, but you can’t hide!

Baby time! Woohoo!

Role reversal! It’s Eliza’s turn to freak out!

Good timing too, he really sticks out there…

Notice Eliza running away like giving birth is contagious lol

Having fun there, Kellen?


TWINS! *dies*

There’s one boy and one girl. The boy is with Kellen and his name is Devin. The girl is crying and her name is Kayla.


After much fishing (which I didn’t think we were going to do again) We finally caught another cowplant berry! (because Mojo was an idiot and accidently sold all of our extra berries…)

Hailey had her birthday! She’s so cute!!!

And here’s our first gardening shot of the chapter! I can’t believe that it took this long for me to get one! lol

But anyway, we got Hailey started with the gardening because she’ll be doing a lot of it when she moves onto house 4

What is this? I’ve never seen this pop up before… I wonder where his grave is?

Baby cowplant has sprouted! So we’re going to end it here, hopefully in the next chapter we’ll wrap up house 3!

Extra Bits:

Avery Capris, Olivia and Dylan’s son

And his twin brother, Hunter Capris!

Chapter 3.8 – Abducted

And we’re back again with the Swifts! We’re nearing the end of house 003 finally! We’re just 4 essences away from completing the cowplant goal, and then all we have to do is wait for Hailey to grow up! Well, that’s enough of this, let’s get to the good stuff!

Eliza looks so peaceful while she’s sleeping. No boys to bother her here!

Hailey is also sleeping.

And Aiden and Lucas are sleeping! The family is being super boring right now.

Kellen’s awake though! Watching the kid’s channel… Weirdo.

Oh! Have fun, Kellen! I’m super glad that finally someone other than Carly in my 100 baby challenge got abducted! It’s about time!

lolz, it looks like he had lots of fun!

Here we go! I like that Eliza’s face looks like she’s apprehensive lol! She knows what’s about to happen, but she can’t stop herself

And we’re at two, officially! As long as Kellen doesn’t drink any of them…

STAHP!!! Stupid kid…

I guess, it’s okay though… only because he cleaned it all up.

Nicole aged up! Hard to believe that Dempsey’s oldest just turned into a young adult.

Kellen’s turn this time! let’s hope he doesn’t die!

Wooooo! Up to three! We only need two more!

Hailey’s practicing her empathy by playing with the doctor bear!

Full speed ahead, Eliza!

I LOVE her face in this one lol! Although, it does make her look a little old…

Just one more to go!

Bye again Kellen! (It’s actually the third time, but I missed the pics of the second trip lol)

Notice anything weird? Hmmm, I wonder what he ate? 😉

Noooooooooo! RIP Mr. Jingles. 😥

Hahahaha! He’s so happy right now, but he has no idea what’s coming lolz


Chapter 3.7 – Mr. Jingles

Hello! And welcome back to the Swifts! Last time we planted our cowplant, finished the fishing aspiration, and also “finished” the house! I say “finished” because we met the required house value, but I’m sure I’ll end up adding stuff to the house before we finish up. And, if you remember, I promised you some birthdays! So lets get started with those!

First up was Aiden!

Then it was Lucas’ turn! Here’s hoping that he’s less of a troublemaker as a kid!

And here they are! That’s Aiden on the left and Lucas on the right. And, like most of my sims lately, they aged up miserable. Wonderful.

And then it was Kellen’s turn!

Still so handsome!

Look guys! Olivia came over to visit! She even helped us garden for a while!

And we’re still popular with the damn vampires. But at least none of them have bitten anyone in the family, so I guess that’s okay.

*mojo fails at getting the “blowing out the candles” pic so we’re stuck the with the “swirl and sparkle” pic*

Kellen is still so in love ❤ Remember how much trouble we had finding a man? Me too. I’m glad we found Kellen though! He’s been a great spouse!

We had this big empty space in the middle of our living room, so I bought a card table to fill in the space. The kids love it!

I watched Lucas sneak out of the house and I wondered what he was doing, and then I caught him doing this. Damn you!

So much gardening! Not gonna lie… gardening is a great money earner, but I’m getting sick of it lol

Our cowplant had a birthday! And he was christened Mr. Jingles! Welcome to the family Mr. Jingles!

And since I don’t need anyone playing fire so to speak, he was promptly fenced in with the gate locked.

And then came time for our first ever play date with a cowplant!

That. Looks. Disgusting.

But we were able to get our first essence!

*le sigh* This kid is obnoxious. It’s never-ending!

Kellen’s turn! His face is the most priceless thing I’ve ever seen!

What, what? We still only have one essence? Yeah, because stupid Kellen drank his. I know it probably still counts, but I like to have them collected…

Extra Bits:

Joshua Capris. Dylan and Olivia’s son

Avery Capris, the older of the twins born to Dylan and Olivia.

And his younger twin Hunter Capris!

And here’s Collin Mansouri, Dempsey and Hakim’s son.


New Story Alert!

Hey guys! I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve started a(nother) new story! Its a collection of challenges mashed into one! Its called The Huckles: A Very Ugly Prettacy! You can check it out here
And if you haven’t already checked out my Baby Boom Challenge, you can check that one out here!

Chapter 3.6 – Check And Check

Well hello everyone! I know it’s been awhile 😥 I got super busy with events over on BoolProp, plus my brother is getting married next year, and his fiance keeps asking me for help. So when thanksgiving came around and I had extra time off, I was super excited to play! …And then my computer crashed. I was devastated! But never fear! My new computer is here! I spent all last week getting it set up and making sure everything was working. Thankfully, I had backed up my games a couple of days before the crash, so I only lost my newest (as of yet) unpublished story and a few sim days of my baby boom challenge. So we can get back to some regular-ish updates! And without further ado, let’s get to the next chapter of The Swifts!

If you remember, Eliza’s only two fish away from completing her aspiration, the house is almost at the required value, and the twins became super mess-makers!

And their needy. Poor Eliza just wants to eat her food in peace. Look at her face! She’s so sad! And obviously, the kids are oblivious to that lol

Kellen goes on a cleaning spree to clean up the mess left behind the tornado twins. Seriously, they are wrecking balls.

House update! We’ve got windows, a roof, and a foundation! I’ve also figured out the layout of the kids’ rooms and the 2nd bathroom, so that it’s not SUPER awkward. This update brings the house total to $43,176! So we’ve officially reached the 1st house goal!

This bass makes our fish count 19/20! We’re one away! Ughhhh, this has been the most stressful aspiration. There’s no control over which fish you get! You just cast the line and hope that you catch a fish you don’t already have.

Olivia had twins! Now she has her own set of little tornadoes! How unfortunate…

Our own little monsters need baths. Desperately. Lucas looks like he’s going to poison someone if he doesn’t get a bath in the next minute lol

I ALMOST MISSED IT!! We finally got that last elusive fish! So that’s 4/6 main goals completed! Thank goodness!

That is an impressive wall of fish! A little bit disappointed that we didn’t catch the bone fish, but oh well! My fishing days are done for a while! (hopefully, I have no idea what the other house goal are. playing blind is annoying sometimes lol)

And here are the ones we caught that didn’t count for the goal (which is SUPER annoying by the way…)

With all the other house goal completed (with the exception of raising the heir to YA, but that will come in time.) it was time to grow our cowplant! The trick here is making sure I don’t kill my sims with it… lol

Look at the state of our house. It was clean at some point during this chapter… *sigh* I want so bad to turn it off, but… that feels cheaty to me

Waaa! It’s so cute when they’re small! And to think eventually it’ll grow up to eat people.

These two have birthdays today! And so do Aiden and Lucas! Since that’s a lot more pics to add to this chapter, I think we’ll end it here and do the birthdays in the next chapter. So TTFN, ta ta for now!
