Two Arlo offspring in the story? Absolutely awesome!

@KRae Are all members of the offspring of the Khan-Doe parents still part of Sunset Vallley?
And are there enough potential spouses remaining to get you to 15 children?

This right here! Maybe the K-D's should learn science so they can clone the DNA of some Townies for future Gen's

@Deklitch , All the children are still around and in the houses I selected for them. As for the rest of the population, most are still present. One of the Keatons drown and one died in a fire and some sims have just been culled I guess. I can no longer find Jamie Jolina, but they seem to recombine households from time to time. Agnes, for instance, lives in a different house with a group of people, but she still calls Flip for dates. That reminds me, I should try to do something about aging up the Sekemoto toddler.

@Magpie2012 , One of the kids will be learning science...soon. Maybe I'll have Flip learn just in case.

Here’s that close-up I threatened you with.
The glory that is Arlo, the grandeur that is Bunch.


Hotel is still working on her requirements with two masterpieces to go.


Flip is helping out with Hotel’s career by consigning her paintings along with his death fish.


The non-identical twins learned their toddler skill and had their birthday.
Hannah’s new trait is Mooch.


While Hattie now has Star Quality which is very useful with celebrity shut off.


Hattie, let your mother finish her 5th masterpiece, please. Flip would be more than happy, in fact excited, to discuss anything with you.


Hattie got a lot more dancing time in than her sister.


Hannah got in a little more tutoring time.


Enough more tutoring time to reach the honor roll one day ahead of her sister.
What Have I Brought Into This World?
I’m not going to say I can fix this, but I think we can make it better.


Hannah, this is the best I could do. Oh, and she’s a Perfectionist now.


This painting got Hotel to level 10 in her painting career. She completed her lifetime wish becoming a Visionary, supermaxed painting, and purchased and upgraded Hotel’s Gallery of Art. As soon as the girls are ready, they will be moving.


Hannah: Grandma’s sick and it’s not my fault.


Arlo went to deliver a stereo he had upgraded in time to see Foxtrot win a simfest.
Foxtrot: Oooh, my stomach!


Isla left work early one day to announce her latest pregnancy. Nice maternity wear.


A day after her sister, Hattie reached the honor roll and had her birthday.
Doesn’t seem fair, does it.


And here is the lovely Hattie who is now a Social Butterfly.


We’ll leave our little family awaiting the next addition. Will the baby look like Flip or Isla? Will it have a strong stomach or need to squint a lot?

Hotel and Arlo’s days in the empire house were winding down.
Arlo still made time to pummel Flip while playing a friendly game of catch…


The girls continued as barefoot mortuary techs…


And Isla gave birth to her latest bundle of joy.


The little one was taken immediately to a conveniently appearing cake on the front lawn.


This is India Khan-Doe, a Friendly Heavy Sleeper. He has Flip’s eye color, but everything else is Isla.


Isla: When you’re older, day after tomorrow, we’ll get you your very own computer.
India: Not a desktop. I’d rarely get a chance to use it.


Hannah: I quit… I said “I QUIT”.


The next day, India learned his last toddler skill, and was ready to age up.


India: Hi, my name is India and I’m a Workahlic.
Hi, India.


The town is still crowded enough that Arlo has to trick people into leaving the treadmill so he can use it. That’s Charlie in the green sweatshirt, Conrad in the foreground, and a very slender Madison on the other treadmill. Thornton has apparently learned to levitate.


The family has one last night to socialize before the girls hit the honor roll.


The next day Hotel, Arlo, and the twins moved to this lovely house at the beach.


India: They rode off into the sunset!

@PeregrineTook , My mother is an identical twin. It's nice that the girls didn't look alike...I guess. I also like that sims don't care what others look like. Their sign is much more important.

Isla told India to work on his skills, so he played video games on his birthday present while she cooked his favorite mac and cheese in her swimsuit.


Flip started learning science…in his swimsuit.


On Friday, India reached the honor roll and had his birthday. Nice hair.


India: Can’t fix my hair now….must work from home.
What exactly a mausoleum clerk does from home on his computer is a mystery to me, but whatever works.


India is now a schmoozer with short hair, not that I dislike long hair. It’s just that parted down the middle ponytail that is unflattering.


Yes, we know you love your job.


India: Hello, I’m sorry but I’m quitting my job. No, I don’t want to, my watcher is making me. She’s mean.


India: Oh, this is why you made me quit. This isn’t so bad.


Learning science is a bit of a slog actually doing science. It goes much faster reading about it at the library. Usually. Not so much when your sister, Echo, is making out with some guy right in front of you and her husband and Dustin Langerak(?).


I’ve got to admire Stiles’ solution to the problem.


Flip: I’m happy to tutor you in science, but what do you mean “the library isn’t safe”?

Hahaha Hannah was definitely unique. Hattie was quite lovely, I was a bit worried for her in her toddler and child photos but she grew into her features quite nicely. I'm sorry, I just don't like Arlo lol he looks like a white Robert Mugabe, and old man Bob is not in the least attractive.

Wow, Echo and Stiles have quite the...unique relationship?
Loving India as workaholic working from home on the laptop as a mausoleum clerk.  Good stuff!

@Deklitch , You should try this. The requirements are pretty straight-forward, and aging up the kids when they're ready is great. It's also nice that the founders can learn any skills and you don't have to control their offspring forever.

@Magpie2012 , Arlo takes a bit of getting used to. He has really nice traits in this game, and that helped a lot.

@PeregrineTook , I don't know what was up with Echo. India is an autonomous worker at home. I have to make him stop and do something fun before work to get his mood up.

@CeresIn , Thanks!

I'm still in Mexico, but since I burn fairly easily and I don't tan as much as my freckles begin to join together, I used peak sun time yesterday to put together an update.

With India’s young adult birthday came the return of the hair.


India’s traits are Heavy Sleeper, Friendly, Workaholic, Schmoozer, and Ambitious. His lifetime wish is Scientific Specialist. Here he is all neat and buttoned-down and ready to start work in his business career.


Every bit as important is the spouse search. India found his future at the fire station in one Ms. Agnes Crumplebottom. They found each other quite irresistible.


Later in the week, India found Agnes at home, not an easy task with a firefighter.
India: Agnes, move in with me. You can have a makeover, quit your job, pursue your dreams, and we’re very, very wealthy.
Agnes: You had me at makeover.


Agnes is such a lovely sim. She gets along with everyone, never hits on Flip, is rarely grumpy, and never shuts off the fire despite being frugal.


They settled in nicely together. India got promoted everyday at work the first week and only had 60 analyze and 100 experiments to go for his supermax (yikes!). Agnes was at level 9 in painting and writing (thanks to her multitab) and had joined the writing career.


Sunset Valley is still a very active town where everyone lives forever. We have received notification of untimely deaths (drowning, fire, and electrocution) only three times.
Find the Khan-Doe in this picture (not in a funny hat and striped shirt like Waldo).


After reaching level 7 in his job on Monday, India and Agnes took a couple days off to celebrate their marriage, meaning India worked at home and committed random acts of science…


…while Agnes did this.
