Chapter 3.11 – Oh Wonderful…

Welcome back everyone! If you remember, last chapter, we completed the cowplant goal for the house so all that’s left is for Hailey to age up and we’re done with house 3!

And she’s got another NINE days before she ages up… So I did a lot of speed playing and tried to cut back on the number of pics I took per day so that this chapter wasn’t ridiculously long lol! But I’m determined to finish this house in this chapter!

We start things out with a death in the family. Aunt Dempsey died. 😥

There are a LOT less messes around the house now that this kid is a teen!

It’s Eliza this time! wow! I’m almost POSITIVE that this is the first time that she was abducted

*sigh* and then they took Kellen again…

We’re still super popular with the vampires… Anyone else get super annoying vampire visits to their house?

I just noticed that the light on the anglerfish is a plumbob! How cool is that!?

With nothing left for her to do, all she does is garden. She leads a pretty boring life right now lol

No… Please no… This is not good guys…

This kid had a really rough day at work.

Hey look! She’s doing something other than gardening! Not like cleaning is any better.

Oh wonderful… Just what we need…

At least he’s useful! Autonomous gardening!

Oh geez. She’s so dramatic. The twins are obviously just trying to ignore her. I would too lol

And he’s just as dramatic. I have no idea why he’s yelling at her. Or why he’s yelling at her while on the floor doing his homework in the bathroom. Yeesh.

So which will happen first? Alien birth or Hailey’s birthday? Hailey’s birthday is just one day away and he just entered his 3rd trimester.

Alien baby!

I love the role reversals.

lol, seeing this cracks me up all the time!

The hospital was a bust. It wouldn’t let us check in and he just stood there for HOURS so I reset him and sent him home. Which is why the baby’s on the front lawn.

But anyway! Welcome to the fam little Rebecca!

And then it was finally Hailey’s birthday!

And we’re officially done with house 3 and onto house 4! We’ll see you there!

Chapter 3.10 – What’s Taking So Long?

Welcome back to The Swifts! In the last chapter we finally got a cowplant berry and got that planted and also welcomed alien twins Devin and Kayla into the family! What fun will we have today?


As you can see here Kellen is having a really tough time managing the twin on his own, so one of the older twins (I can’t tell which one this is…) Is helping him out lol


Hailey’s REALLY enjoying her moms food… I’ve never seen a sims get so excited about their food before lol


Why is this picture of Kellen looking dazed here? Oh. Maybe because he got himself abducted. AGAIN. Now this is getting annoying. I really dont want another alien baby…


Alien twins aged up! Heres Devin


And heres Kayla!


And heres the redecorated office. Looks pretty cool if you ask me lol


NO! THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!! Back away from Mrs. Pickles, Hailey. Back away.

Hailey’s room got a more mature makeover.

… There’s a floating sippy cup. Above my trashcan… That’s not supposed to be how that works.

Going for that final essence before Mrs. Pickles dies on me

Success! That’s 1 flirty, 1 inspired, 1 confident, 1 energized, and 1 playful. I’m so glad to be done with the cowplant lol

Since we got what we needed, Mrs. Pickles was left to wither and die. Such a shame.

Aunt Jordyn had her baby! Welcome to the family, Cameron!

And it’s the boy’s birthday! First up is Aiden!

And then Lucas!

That’s Aiden on the left and Lucas on the right.

And then their room was given a makeover! That Cowplant poster is my favorite lol

Are they on stakeout? In front of my house?! What is going on!?

And then the little Aliens are having a birthday too! (So many birthdays… ) First up was Devin

And then Kayla went!

And here they are! I don’t need to tell you who’s who do I? I’m sure you can figure that out.

Anyway, that’s it for this chapter! The house goals are completed and all we’re doing is waiting for Hailey to grow up so we can move onto house 4!

Extra Bits:

Here’s Cameron Richards, Aunt Jordyn and Rashawn’s new addition.

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?

Kellen: NO! NO I AM NOT! WHAT IS HAPPENING!?

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.

IT’S ABOUT TIME, JORDYN!

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!

Special Announcement!

Hey guys! I just wanted to write a small post letting you know a couple things. The first is that I 

STARTED A NEW STORY!

Its called Here Comes The Boom. Its a baby boom challenge (which is similar to a 100 baby challenge) I’m only 1 chapter in so go check it out! The link to the page can be found on the “My other Stories” tab. I hope you enjoy!
The other part of this announcement is that my computer crashed. Luckily i had backed up all my games and photos right before it happened so I didnt lose anything. *whew!* I have a new computer ordered and it should be here either Monday or Tuesday. So I should have regular posts starting again the following week. As far as I know, the only thing that I lost was the beginning of a 6th story that I haven’t published yet, so that I will have to start over but that’s okay! As long as everything else is okay!
So that’s all! I just wanted to fill you all in! Go check out the new story! And look for new posts starting again in December!! Toodles!

Chapter 3.5 – So Many Upgrades

Welcome back to my Drifter Challenge! If you remember, last time we did lots of fishing and started studying the handiness skill so that we could visit the grotto. We also had Hailey’s birthday and the birth of our spares, TWINS(!) Aiden and Lucas! Now that we’re all caught up, let’s get started!

Here we have Eliza taking care of the newborns! As you can see, it’s going well. Much better than with my 100 baby challenge…

Kellen gives Hailey some love so that she doesn’t feel left out with the new babies in the house. She looks so happy too! ❤

Twins are taken care of, so we hit the books! It’s time to go somewhere that I’ve never been in the game before!

Kellen is the first to try out the new computer in the office! Now don’t get into any trouble, Mister!

Kellen: Me? NEVER!

Sounds promising…

We also updated the kitchen! Now we have a sink in the kitchen! And looooots of counter space!

AND we finished the second bathroom! With a toddler in the house, we needed a tub for bath time.

The current house value is $34,881! So we’re just over 5000 away from getting that house goal done!

Do we live in a mob-run town?! Seriously! There’s so many people who walk by in black! It’s really starting to freak me out!

To help with the handiness skill, we bought a whole bunch of upgrade parts (which I did NOT know you could do on the computer, so WIN) and we went on an upgrade spree. Literally. We upgraded EVERYTHING in the house. All sinks, toilets, showers, stoves, fridges, everything!

These two cuties aged up! (Seems like time just flew by!) That’s Aiden in the dark blue/yellow and Lucas in the light blue/red. They’re my little heroes!

Since I was not banking on twin boys, I decided to add a third bedroom. I’m not sure how I feel about the layout. I might expand the bathroom and cut it in half and make two smaller bathrooms when the kids are older and rearrange the bedroom placement. We’ll see. It’s a work in progress lol.

Lucas is a little terror. He’s always making a mess. I want to turn it off in MCCC, but I feel like that’s cheating…

Why are we so damn popular with the vampires? I feel like we get a visit from one every night! GO AWAY! WE DON’T SERVE YOUR KIND HERE!

Two in one night! Make it stahp! Geez!

Little Hailey is getting ready for her turn as heir and starting her gardening skill early with help from mom!

Olivia is expecting another child! Yay!

Birthday! Yay!

Side Note: Notice all those messes? Yeah, that’d be Lucas… I’m telling you, the kid is a little terror!

Awe! Look at how cute she is! I don’t remember (aka, I didn’t write down) what trait I gave her. Probably loves outdoors… Since she’ll be homeless at the beginning of her House challenge. (I think. I dunno what the rules are for house 4. Sometimes playing blind is annoying, but I’m determined!)

Yasss! Ya’ll know what this means!

We’re off to the Grotto! (It’s about time!)

*tears up* It’s so beautiful!

We wasted no time and got straight to work fishing, which was the whole point of going in the first place!

These two fish brought our total up to 16 for our aspiration!

Thank GAWD there was a toilet. I thought she was going to have to continue on in filth. Too bad there wasn’t one of these in the Glade…

Moar new fish!

Then someone got hungry and we didn’t pack snacks, so we had to go home. *sigh* We’ll finish one of these days.

We’re only two fish away from finishing our aspiration!

Chapter 3.4 So Much Fishing

Welcome back, drifters! We begin this chapter with Eliza watering the Swift Jungle! Sometimes, it really does feel like jungle! So much green!

Kellen looks like he’s regretting having a kid. He looks super awkward and has no idea what he’s doing. Parenting extraordinaire right here!

Frog/bait catching! That’s so gross. I hate frogs. Eliza’s a stronger woman than I. Also, she didn’t catch many… maybe like 4 of 15.

It’s soooo cute!! Too bad it doesn’t count for our total needed for the aspiration…

This one counts though!

Side Note: This is the first Tilapia that she caught and then for a while after this (even in different fishing areas) that’s allllll she caught.

Hey, you. Don’t look so happy. I watched you break that sink. And now I know you’re going to walk away. Which means I have to pull Eliza from her fishing to come and fix it since it is our sink…

We have out heir, so now it’s time for our spare! (no pregnancy test for this one. We’ll find out “naturally”)

Good luck!

Maxed the fishing skill! (It’s about time. Took long enough)

So since we maxed fishing and gardening, we can now visit the grotto. But we also need the handiness skill to access it. So we’re doing lots of studying!

Uhhhh Dad? You know Eliza’s your daughter, right? She’s not good for guy’s night lol

BEGONE WITH YOU VAMPIRE!

Vampy: Rude

BEGONE!

Looks like that try for baby was successful! Also, she stinks.

NOOOOOOOO!!! Bye mom! You were a saving grace of a mail carrier!

Look out cute little bumblebee!! Hailey’s so cute!

(Also I just realized that I have two toddlers named Hailey… there’s one in my apocalypse challenge too… whoops)

Cowplant berry status up to 3 berries! I should think about planting one.

Note from the future: We’re up to 5. lol

I’m sure this pic was for something important, but I neglected to write that down… soooooo… IT’S A FISH!

Potty training!

That’s not really the best place eat dinner…

Hailey is so cute! Look at her cheese for the camera!

Baby time!

(I’ve notice we fish a lot at the Glade…)

Eliza’s all cool and collected and just ready for it to be done.

Kellen is not. He literally ran around the hospital like this the WHOLE time. He didn’t try to do anything either. He just… ran…

TWINS!!

Meet Aiden on the left and Lucas on the right!

Extra Bits:

Nicole Mansouri. Dempsey and Hakim’s daughter. She’s really pretty!

And this is her younger brother, Collin!
