Congratulations! I love how you pose them, with proper lighting and everything. And the skill certificates are an idea I'll have to steal...  ;) Are you dressing them in their favorite colors?

Yes, I am dressing them in their favorite colors, and in the museum their chair will also be that color. The night wear for each immortal elder is a robe in their favorite color as well. It helps cover up some of their skinniness.

I did the dress code and robe thing as well (and different hair colors too) everything to make it easier for me to separate them. It worked like a charm.

October became a young adult adding the Family Oriented trait. He looks a lot like his father whose favorite color is also pink.



At age 93 Vivek shook Grim's hand and joined the happy ghosts across the street. Thank you, Vivek, for your wonderful son and all the jokes. Oh, and for not being an incredible flirt.



When he was a teen, October was already a talented alchemist. His girlfriend, Janet, was several days older. When
she became a YA, she went from pudgy to huge. October decided to do an experiment (well, I did) and threw a Lean and Mean at Janet who became scary thin. Now when I've done this before, the weight is usually regained in about a week. When it was time for them to marry maybe two weeks later, Janet was still a stick figure. Oops. Fortunately after entering the household she started rounding out a little. Here she is about 5 hours from giving birth.



Our fifth heir, July Rain, a Brave Genius with her mother's beautiful hair.



So Janet's weight is now, right after childbirth, about where it was when she was a teen.



And here she is two days later playing with July. I suspect she'll get bigger yet. I don't mind. She's very lovely and has the traits Genius, Virtuoso, Lucky, Green Thumb and something I forget - but it was another good trait.




Learning to talk with Daddy's help. No sorry, neither one of you will be traveling - you might not make it back.

July is so cute! Her hair is lovely. That's a really nice shade and the highlights are really pretty.

Life goes on. July became a child adding the Daredevil trait.



This little boy, Ernest Castle, has come home from school with July three days in a row. They have become best friends.



The afterlife goes on as well. Winter here is enjoying the sprinkler. No surprise. The only surprise I guess is that it took him so long to discover it.



After earning his white belt, October had an immediate wish to spar with March. It didn't go too well for him. 2 - 0.



Upon losing, he immediately challenged his mother to a pillow fight. This went better.



July became a lovely teen gaining Loves the Outdoors. She's at level 8 in logic, but it won't be her supermax.



Remember the little boy playing with the doll house? July asked him to prom. Nothing negative happened to her all night. I didn't know that was even possible.

July is stunning!  I love her hair and eyes; they go so well with her skin tone.  She is going to be such a beauty when she grows up  :)

October and Janet are a very affectionate couple, always wishing for each other. I grow very attached to spouses and spares possibly because I know their time will end.



Janet aged up to elder all by herself on the way home from work. She's at that stage in the music career when the shift lasts until 10pm. She seems very pleased even so.



October and July shared their next birthday. July added Handy to her traits.



She graduated the next day becoming the class valedictorian and being selected Most Likely to Electrocute Herself. That does not bode well for her Handiness Supermax and Firefighter career.



While July headed off to start her new job, everyone else went home where April completed October's elder portrait and he ate his first ambrosia.

Generation Four

October Rain - Heavy Sleeper, Friendly, Good Sense of Humor, Charismatic, Family Oriented

LTW - Alchemy Artisan
Career - Alchemist
Supermax - Alchemy
Building - Llama Memorial Stadium
Property - The Grind
LTRs - Observant, Legendary Host, Carefree
BFs - November Rain, Janet Rain, Jovan O'Donnell, Wendell Castle, Leona Choi, Brianna Craft
Ops - Pile of Permission Slips, Scavenger Hunt: Butterfly Bonanza, A Fishy Science Project, Allow Me to Introduce Myself, Alchemic Mastery, Tough Negotiating
Here with his portraits



Ice blasting witches are useful when broken plumbing and appliances are required.



Of course everyone is in their nightwear for this.



July married Jovan O'Donnell who she met at the library when she was a child and he a teen. The day she aged up to teen, he aged up to young adult, but they've been best friends the whole time.



July completed her firefighter career very quickly. I've got no pictures of her in action. She took care of one rabbithole emergency and two buggy large fires. That was it. Her career advanced basically on learning handiness and athletics. She did receive the key to the city.



Shortly after returning home, she realized she was pregnant.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I really do appreciate each and every one.

July went into labor two days later, and the next heir, December Rain (a girl), was born with the traits Virtuoso and Heavy Sleeper. I love my heavy sleepers. She is worth the pain and scary collarbone protrusion.



The evening before December's first birthday, Janet passed away. Thank you, Janet , for being a wonderful wife, friend, and mother. And for being such a good sport about losing in chess to your daughter - every single game.



This is what she missed, her sweet grandchild as a toddler. December is very much like her father. Favorite color green, green eyes, brown hair with greenish highlights (why???).



Learning to talk.   Jovan: You will be happier when you come to accept that everyone in this house fishes. You will be sent endlessly across the street as an elder to fish and thus defeat the wicked stir-crazy moodlet.
Yes, that's how Jovan talks.



Living in a house with six grownups, three who are family oriented, December is rarely left alone. Here November decides to teach her to walk only to be interrupted by October who is in need of some serial tossing the nooboo in the air. Then he is interrupted by April who must tickle December right Now! Much foot tapping

.

This ordinary looking scene is actually amazing. July has discovered the basement all on her own. In all my dynasties, no one goes to the basement except when I make them pose for a picture.



It's turning into a regular family hangout. Maybe I'll reward them with a pool table.



March and October have a little competition going. They are always wishing to spar with each other. Jovan and July were given a golf range for a wedding present. March, October, and July (the only ones with any athletic skill) use it quite often, but as soon as March sets a new record, October wishes to set one. And then March does and on and on and on.



You can see it in the background here. Apparently five windows have been broken, three cars struck, and the ball has hit the water seven times.

RIP Janet, what an awesome mum. Loving the rivalry for top spot between March and October.

December had her child birthday adding Loves the Outdoors.



You know what that means. Can't say she wasn't warned.



Jovan is now an elder, fishing in his jammies every chance he gets.



An immortal lifetime spent reading and playing video games. Sounds about right.



Childhood goes so much faster than toddlerhood. December became a Disciplined teen.



Learning to drive in Mom's expensive car went pretty well. Much better than prom with one denied dance, one three eyed llama, and four fights. Being named prom queen hardly balanced all that out. Now that's what I expect from prom.



Rocking out with G-G Grandma April.



December begins learning nectar making, soon to be her career and life's passion.

Good luck with nectarmaking.  I've done it twice and one time Vizard of Vine registered and the other time, it didn't  :o.  Hope it works out for you!

The day before December's YA birthday, July became an elder. She could accept being older, but those clothes had to go.



Generation Five

July Rain - Genius, Brave, Daredevil, Loves the Outdoors, Handy

LTW - The Tinkerer
Career - Firefighter
Supermax - Handiness
Building - Landgraab Industries Science Facility
Property - Papyrus Memorial Library
LTR's - Profession Simoleon Booster, Engaging, The Hustler
BF's - October Rain, Hassan John, Cora Bautista, Ruby Coker, Noemi Contreras, Kasey Contreras
Ops - Riddle Away, Shower Upgrade, Bring Back the Jams, The Complete Circuit, Logic 101, Frequent Fatigue

July with her portraits, certificates, and some of her firefighter awards



Now that she is no longer in school, December spends a good deal of time in the sub-basement nectary which has attracted many family members to the subterranean regions of the house.



Some have even tried the pool table - badly.



December harvesting homegrown French varietal grapes in an attempt to become Vizard of Vine. I thought I was going to have to ask permission to count it, but after 460 bunches it actually registered!



December and her appropriately named boyfriend, Jebidiah John. Most of their courtship took place here. Don't know why, but everytime she visited he needed the bathroom.



They met when his father called to see if the family wanted his child to come over and play. As it turned out, the child was actually a teen (18 days older), but they had a great time playing tag and video games. They married in the yard. Much better than the potty.



It's good to have a somewhat older spouse in the last part of a dynasty as Jovan proved by living to age 105. Goodbye, Jovan, we'll miss your endless fishing and discussions about cameras.

December is eating watermelon, lots of watermelon.



The result: January Rain -Virtuoso, Heavy Sleeper. She has her mom's green eyes and her father's black hair. Thank you. She is the 4th out of seven immortal/immortal to be to have red as a favorite color.



October Rain, potty trainer extraordinaire. Never takes more than twice.



Jebidiah and January playing their favorite game while November taps her foot in impatience waiting her turn.



Snuggle time with Mom. There is so much competition for January's time.



Our last dynasty spouse is now an elder. Even though he hasn't been with the family that long he's maxed gardening and guitar and is at level 8 in his science career. I'm really trying to get him a large tombstone (thank you wish enhancing elixirs).

Just so he doesn't live too long. Sadly, room must be made for the final heir.
