I've got another toddler video to share to help make up for the sadness of Kenny's death.  This isn't from my Dreamweavers.  It's my family in Barnacle Bay who has the six kids from the Toddler Race video.  The first three have aged up to children, so I recorded the toddler/child interactions of peek-a-boo, hug, and giving a bottle.

I was just reading what you said and yes, I love toddlers too, but, I guess I get on a certain family and play them forever and sometimes don't have but a couple of kids.  I have to admit, I really miss playing with the little ones.  My big family that started that post about how many kids have sims had, I have really played that one alot lately and all of the main characters have passed, so thinking of having a bunch of babies again, this family had two sets of triples, three sets of twins and a few singles, altogether 12 kids.  Really cute video, if I get started on videos, you guys will be begging me to quit, lol. ;D

I dress spouses in their favorite colors and Oliver's favorite color is yellow.  Kenny's was pink.  So, maybe Oliver named her Banana because he likes yellow.  ;D

I've started noticing new behavior in my Sims when Christopher's or Kenny's ghost comes out.  They wake up and get out of bed!  Sometimes they run to wherever the ghost is to make the "Ewww, a ghost" motion.  I really don't like it because it disturbs their sleep and I have to put them all to bed again.  I've never had this happen before.  So, I decided that Banana's property will be the Summer Hill park across the street from the Dynasty house.  I put in all the necessary requirements, but I also fenced off an area closest to the house for a small family cemetary.  It won't need much room and it will keep the ghosts from bothering the rest of the family.  I got Indigo's grave, too, and put her guitar beside it.



Of course, when I tried to save the game after doing all this work, the game crashed to desktop.  Again.  It's getting worse and worse about doing that and I find that I have to play some parts of the game over and over before I finally get it done and safely saved.  Highly frustrating.

Banana's childhood flew by.  She did well in school, had some friends, and loved her family.  She didn't work on any skills because there's nothing to prepare for Nectar Making, so she got to play a lot and she enjoyed that a great deal.  I neglected to say that she gained the Lucky trait when she aged to Child.  After dealing with Kenny getting out of bed every single night because he had the Light Sleeper trait, I've enjoyed Banana's Heavy Sleeper trait. 

She's got a couple of boy friends who are potential husbands.  First is Cody McCormick (Snob, Neat, Photographer's Eye).  He easily became her best friend.  His hair is a little lighter blonde than hers and his eyes are light brown.



The other is Denver Easter (Vegetarian, Adventurous, Loner).  She had to work harder with him just to get to be good friends.  He's got brown hair and medium brown eyes.



I'm leaning a bit toward Cody.  With his Neat trait, I could fire the maid!  Thank goodness neither of them are Artistic yet.  I'm about worn out with all the painting that's been going on.  Nectarine, Kenny, Oliver, and Chartreuse have all been painters.  Nectarine is frustrating with her desire to sculpt, too.  Even after I locked her away from the sculpting tables, she manages to fly over to one if I unlock the door for even 30 seconds to let someone in to pose for an ice sculpture.  She's gotten the running bug somehow and I'm telling you...  that old lady has got some serious speed when she spies an open sculpting table!  She gets to the table, sets up a piece of clay, and gets a notch on her skill meter before I can even blink and cancel her action.  Zoom zoom!

Banana's birthday party had a bit of drama when two of the little girls had a fight in the living room.  The girl in the yellow shirt is named Chiquita.  Seriously.  Banana has a friend named Chiquita.  Who else finds that hysterical?





Nectarine was not happy that her granddaughter's birthday partly was so rudely interrupted and gave the evil one a good verbal lashing.



Finally it was time to blow out the candles.



As a teenager, Banana looks even more like a blonde Periwinkle.  I briefly put the same hairsyle on her.  Look at this!



Isn't she just every bit as lovely as her mother?  I settled on a more modern hairstyle for her.  She'll be more modern in general in her styles. 



I gave her the Green Thumb trait to help trigger the Nectar Making Lifetime Wish.  I can't think of what it's called.  She'll never do a speck of gardening, unless she has some wishes to grow a particular plant to gain happiness points.  Carina used Gardening as her SuperMax skill and will grow all the fruit Banana needs for her nectar, even if I have to lock the gates to the Crop Circles.  It will work out well for Banana, too, because she can devote all of her time to the nectar and not have to sweat over gardening.  I bought the Nectar Making skill books while in France and I'll have her read those while she's in high school.  By the time she's ready to make nectar, she should be at level 10 and will be able to hit the ground running.  In fact, maybe she should visit the family home in Champs Les Sims to have some peace and quiet while she reads without school getting in the way.

I've got her section in the basement all set up with the nectar makers and the nectar racks.  They are, of course, colored banana yellow.  Hehe.



Periwinkle is working on her sculpting to reach level 10 of the profession.  She's currently on level 9.  She's got sculpting SuperMaxed with all of the skill journals complete.  She owns her two pieces of property.  All of her museum pieces are in place and just waiting for her Elder pieces.  She needs a couple more BlackOps, but I don't expect a problem.  She gets opportunities from Cooking, Sculpting, and Charisma.  Her Lifetime Wish of Rennaissance Sim is complete.  She has purchased her three unique Lifetime Rewards:  Food Replicator, Artisan Crafter, and Teleportation pad.  After all that's finished, she just has to round up her best friends and wait for the dreaded Elder birthday.

Thank you for reading!

Chiquita Banana! Lol That is hilarious! You Probably know this Pam, but if you want to keep Nectarine away from the sculpting table, just remove the door or put them downstairs without stairs. The family Cemetery is gorgeous! Well, you know what I mean  ;).

Rather than remove the door, I've been locking the door.  There are 4 Sims who need to be on the balcony to paint and sculpt.  So, there are 4 doors leading to the balcony and each of the doors is locked to everyone except one of the 4 Sims.  But to let a Sim in to pose, I have to unlock one door.  That's when the speedy and wily Nectarine makes her move.  Lol.

Instead of Nectarine, she should have been named Speedy lol.  ;D

*singing*  I'm Chiquita Banana and I've come to say,  You've got to treat bananas in a special way......

lol  I roared laughing at this one.

Banana is gorgeous.  Glad to see the Periwinkle face again.  I love the graveyard too.  My Sim is carrying Jon around in her inventory. lol  Don't want any ghostly reactions.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

I'm concerned about your taking Banana to France to study, because of the travel bugs you've had.

Also, a thought about your save problems. If I remember correctly you keep a few save files and save over them in rotation? You might have better luck creating a new save file every save. You don't have to keep all that accumulate, but you'll have a fresh save file each time, and that might help you.

If there's something about Pam's file right now...whatever that might be...that's causing all of her crashes to desktop, then rotating a bunch of new save files is unlikely going to solve the problem.

Let me first say thanks for another posting. I missed this. I also want to say that I love that you put Indigo's guitar next to her tomb so she can play when she haunts. You always put the nicest touches on the story.

I did not suggest that she rotate any files. In fact I'm suggesting that she *not* rotate files at all; rather save each file as a new one. Example: Dreamweaver 1, Dreamweaver 2, etc. all the way to Dreamweaver 999. She can delete the earlier numbered ones or keep them in another folder outside of the Sims folder, but each save file is fresh and never saved over.

This is how I handle my saves, and I've never had any of the troubles I read about here.

Okay. I'm not a techie at all. I do not do any of this multiple save stuff that some feel compelled to do. I understand why some players do it, but if my game would ever crash so often that it would force me to adopt this kind of system, I guarantee you that I'd be looking for a new game. Anyway, back to the Dreamweavers.

Here's a picture of Periwinkle and Banana watching television together.  You can see how much they look like each other.  Banana's not wearing makeup because I don't put it on my Sims until they reach Young Adult.

@LlamaMama:

That's a new teen outfit for me.  I treated myself to some new teen and children's clothes recently.  I'm happy with my adult clothes, but the others were rather lacking in variety.  Everything Banana wears for her everyday clothes is new.

Here's new video of Oliver and Periwinkle hanging out on the swings together when suddenly Nectarine rushes up, followed closely by Carina.  They aren't pleased that they can't hang out, too.  ;D

Oliver and Periwinkle Hang Out

Update:  Carina coaxed Periwinkle out of her swing with some conversation and then stole it!  Now Periwinkle's upset.  Carina flaunts her fun and Oliver won't budge from his swing at all.

Carina Steals the Swing

This is so funny to me because none of them have cared about the swings until now.  Suddenly, they all want to play on them.
