My Christopher Steel as an elder was absolutely crazy about the babies and toddlers, and was always the first to attend to their needs, as if he sensed it. I always wondered if he had a hidden trait of Baby Love.

During his trips to China, Christopher caught many Koi and Dragonfish.  His desire was to leave something behind that his family would always have to remember him by after he's gone.  He built a lovely pond near the front of the property and stocked it with the many Koi and Dragonfish that he had been carrying around for so long. 

A beautiful spot to sit and think:


The new twins had their first birthday party:


Periwinkle, the heir, looks nothing like either of her parents.  She's got jet black hair and blue eyes.  I think her eyes came from her grandad Christopher, but I have no clue where the black hair came from.  It's nowhere on her family tree.  But it's a beautiful combination:


Chartreuse got her father's hair and an unlikely pair of light brown eyes.  No clue where the eye color came from.  Kenny, her father, has green eyes.


Here the girls are playing together and Christopher is helping Chartreuse on the xylophone.  He does love the nooboos.


Mama Nectarine taught little Periwinkle how to talk:


And I think Aunt Indigo fell in love with the one who will also one day die.

Oh poor Indigo and Chartreuse!  But hurray for 2 sets of twins!  I'm gonna pick up the Fertility treatment for this next heir of mine so we'll see how that goes!

Your toddlers are quite adorable!  The ones in my game are always bald and ugly.  Is there some way to change their clothing and give them hair?

You change the toddlers hair and clothing the same way that you change other Sims, mirror and dressers.  The toddlers will crawl over to either the mirror or dresser and sit in front of them.  Cool huh?

So this would only work if you have a floor-length mirror?

Also, once you have their new clothes, an Adult has to change them for the toddler with the Change Outfit interaction.  When I get my toddlers up for the day, the first thing I do is change them out of their jammies.

Raising toddlers is fun for the whole family!

Chartreuse has things to say to her Daddy:


Periwinkle has something to say to Mommy:


And she loves to read with Grandad:


She's a pretty little girl:


But she's cranky when she first wakes up:


Two mortal men have things to discuss:


Periwinkle and Chartreuse talk about their birthday party over one last game of blocks as toddlers:


Grandad helps Chartreuse with the candles:


A little help for Periwinkle from Mommy:


Now we have two young girls, both are very pretty:




I may have given a hint in the pictures that I'm getting tired of the black and white theme of the house.  I'm now making it official.  I'm tired of the black and white.  Periwinkle and Chartreuse's new room and bathroom is carried through with the pink that was in their nursery.  Pink isn't one of my favorite colors, personally, but it's girly and easy on the eyes after the stark white.  The girls got to move upstairs, too, so now they're up with the grown ups.  Well, except for Carina and Christopher, who are still in their original bedroom on the ground floor.



I plan for Periwinkle to be the family Sculptor.  There aren't many traits to help her accomplish that besides the Savvy Sculptor trait and it hasn't been available yet.  I gave her the Perfectionist trait upon aging up to child.  I again rolled a random trait for Chartreuse and she came up with Insane!  Just like Indigo!  I'm not going to choose Lifetime Wishes for them until they reach Young Adult. 

In other news, Christopher is now 101 days old.  He paints and has been caring for the toddlers a lot.  Now that they're children, I'm not sure what he will do.  He's living a lot longer than I expected.  Indigo is at level 8 of the Science career and plays guitar for a change of pace.  She doesn't have many friends, but that will change as she plays for tips.  Nectarine is working diligently on her profession as an Artist.  She's up to level 5.  She's had 4 opportunities since she's become an adult.  I have a couple from childhood saved just in case, but I don't think she'll need them.  She's got enough skills to trigger another 2 opportunities, I'm sure.

Nectarine and Indigo aged up to Adult on the same day as Periwinkle and Chartreuse.  Nectarine and Periwinkle already have their new portraits done, along with some photographs.  No ice sculptures yet, but Kenny is working his way toward it until Periwinkle can take over.  Kenny then aged up to Adult the very next day.  Carina has a nearly perfect garden and a nice grove of money trees.  She cooks a lot more now that the family is so big.  Life as an immortal isn't too bad so far.

Thank you, wildredchild.  :)

Update:

This just made me laugh.  Chartreuse had baked some muffins and was selling them in front of the theater on a Sunday afternoon.  Next door at the book store, Cyclone Sword had his appointment with the Grim Reaper.  When he was done, Grim hustled over to Chartreuse's baking table and proceeded to make himself her one and only customer that day.  ;D

I liked the Black/White decor, but the pink bedroom / bath suite is very nicely done too, Pam. When you spend the time to color-coordinate stuff like this, do you save a copy of the final objects, or do you just save the patterns you've created? Or neither?

I feel sorry for Chartreuse! Not just for only having one customer, but for the single customer she had! Poor girl! Of course, I accidentally snickered at the picture hehe.

When things like this happen, I like to slow down and watch what my Sims talk about next time they have a conversation! I hope she didn't brag about her sale!

Agreed. I doubt I'll find something better in two weeks for the October one. Looks like I'll be raiding Pam's Photobucket account (again).  ;D

GROANS!  Baaaaad pun Metro.  Kudos to you. lol

Grimy with a sweet tooth.  Who knew?

Ok, I have a thought.  You know how when it's time to come home if you use the phone to make the arrangements you get a place where it asks who is going home?  What would happen if you left the elder who was about to die in a few days, behind?  Would he stay alive?  I hope so as I get rather attached to the spouse. 

I love your story Pam and your guys are really unique and wonderful.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

That Grim picture was my laugh for the day at work! I think the fact that Chartreuse is wearing a fairy costume gives it just a little something extra! :)

I save both the pattern and the final object.

You're talking about vacations, right?  Nobody dies or ages while on vacation, so if you had your elderly spouse stay awhile longer, yes he would stay alive during the time he's on vacation.  I don't see a reason to send the others back home, though.  The vacation is already bought and paid for and they can't do anything back home until you get there.

I've been pounding my head trying to think of something clever for my Immortal Museum.  And I've been completely stumped until now!  I made a second level basement and built rooms along three sides with the stairs coming down in the middle of a large open area in the center of the basement area.  There are 8 rooms along the three sides, of course, and archways between each room.  No doors except into the first one to enter Carina's room and one in the 8th room to open back onto the center area.  Then I was trying to decide on a theme for each Immortal's room.  I gave each one a unique paneling design for the walls, but that wasn't quite enough.  Then, brainstorm!! 

This is Carina's room with her portraits and photographs.  It also contains the furniture from the living room that they've been using for most of Carina's life.  Even the TV is there.



This gave me the perfect reason to redecorate the living room and get rid of the black and white that I'm so tired of looking at.  I used nectarine as the starting color and when Nectarine eats Ambrosia and turns the family over to Periwinkle, the living room will be redecorated again using periwinkle as the base color.  The nectarine living room will be placed in Nectarine's museum room with her art pieces. 

Here's the redecorated living room.  Such a difference!
