Yes, Isla!  Pass on those glorious genes some more!!
Benni's a cutie, but Bitsy is a whole different level of adorable.  I think it's the pseudo-smile and ornery eyebrows combination.

@PeregrineTook , Isla agrees. Bring on the nooboos!

The girls became children. Benni added the useful trait Shy.


Bitsi added the equally useful Frugal.


No, Isla, no! Don’t go into labor by the fire truck. It’s not safe!


A visiting Mortimer Goth did not let the mere birth of a child interrupt his homework. It feels odd that children will not grow up without my assistance.


Child number four was born without incident. Look at that skin color.

Presenting Charlie Khan-Doe, an Easily Impressed Heavy Sleeper.


Flip: I so excited, no one ever lets me do this!
Charlie: I’m impressed.


Charlie worked hard and got to celebrate his birthday while his nieces were still children.


The adults worked hard while the kids were at school.


The girls made the honor roll and had their birthday. Benni’s traits are Good, Hates the Outdoors, Shy, and Vegetarian. She and Bitsi will both take jobs at the cemetery because of how the days off fall.


Bitsi’s traits are Absent-Minded, Loves the Outdoors, Frugal, and Good. It seems a shame that she’ll never get to grow up all the way.


So here’s a hint as to what Charlie’s life will be centered around. He burned nothing.
I’m not influencing gender at all, so I decided that the four rabbit-hole jobs I’ll be using will go to the first four boys born. Birthing babies is just too hard on a sims career.


Hey, guys! There’s still a slot open in the house.


And….we’re full up again.


This is Delta. His traits are Heavy Sleeper and Virtuoso. It’s a good thing he’s cute as he may be around quite a while. He’s going to have to supermax guitar.

There's something about Benni that strikes me as sad and makes me want to comfort and protect her, but Bitsi has this joy that makes me just want to enjoy her mere existence.
Charlie's also rather lovely.  Unless lovely is the wrong term for a boy.  Loving the skin tone/hair and eye color combo.  Of course, Delta is almost his mini-me, so yeah.
Can't wait to see what adventures await these newest heirs!

@PeregrineTook , I feel a bit protective of Benni too. I think it's the shy/hates the outdoors combo. She has that shy moodlet when she's at school. She's friends with everyone at home, but they're always outside. The sweet thing is that she would still rather be where they are.

Delta: So, is that a pond, a lake, or a swamp?
Flip: Isla, we need you in here!


Meanwhile, Charlie made the honor roll and stepped up to a birthday cake ASAP.
He’s now a Natural Cook. Big surprise there.


Late that evening due to or in spite of Flip's efforts, it was Delta’s turn. He’s now Ambitious.


The next day he really wanted to go to the community pool…to do this apparently.


Benni and Bitsy completed their teen requirements, and their little family moved back into Christopher’s old house. I added beds for the girls and a better shower. They will actually be missed.


Charlie started working on his cooking. He decided to participate in a community grilling competition.


This was his only competition.




Delta stayed busy, but was careful to remain completely unskilled, unless you count being cute as a skill of course.


Tomorrow both boys should make the honor roll. Since Charlie got a promotion as a spa specialist over the weekend, there will be birthday cake for dinner tomorrow.

Wow, you're really making progress in a hurry!
Can't wait to see how the boys grow up, who they marry, and how glorious those Isla genes are in the next generation (oh, and Flip's genes are okay too, I guess).

@PeregrineTook , Everything goes fast until they become young adults, then not so much.

@CeresIn and @mpart , All we need now is to come up with some skill challenges for cuteness.

Charlie is now a young adult with the traits Heavy Sleeper, Easily Impressed, Workaholic, Natural Cook, and Schmoozer. He wants to be a Culinary Librarian.


Delta had his teen birthday and became Irresistible (he maxed his cuteness skill). He can finally start playing his guitar.
Hey, Charlie when you get to level 5 in your culinary career and have made 40 meals, you can start looking for a spouse.
Charlie cooks faster.


Charlie is already good friends with his boss Emma Hatch and at level 6 in cooking so his first day at work should go well. Owning the building, Charlie’s Diner, doesn’t hurt either.


Delta got his first promotion as a spa specialist and so completed one of his teen requirements. Everyone is thinking about Delta and his fabulous career clothes.


Delta went to the park to play guitar, but before he could start he had a run in with his Evil nephew Ace who is always scorched. Either he never bathes, or he witch homeworks himself every day and gets rescorched.


Okay, Delta, stop playing and introduce yourself to the pretty fairy. Sure she’s older, but you have to think ahead.


Charlie is a Culinary Librarian now, has made 40 meals and is a hair away from his next promotion.


He invited his boss over to ask her for a promotion, but that’s hard to do when she’s sunk into the floor. Looks like that next promotion is going to have to be earned the hard way.


Delta got on the honor roll and immediately grew up. His traits are now Heavy Sleeper, Virtuoso, Ambitious, Irresistible, and Schmoozer. That last one was actually random, although I wouldn’t have accepted anything awful. He wants to be a Rock Star.


He went to join the music career and purchased the building, now to be known as Delta’s Community Theatre.


Charlie’s spouse hunt has begun.

Another lovely update!  The quicksand in the floor was a nice moment of amusement.
Amusingly, you had the boys interacting with Blair Wainwright and Madison VanWatson who are two of my favorite females in Sunset Valley.  The boys have my seal of approval  ;=)

@PeregrineTook , This should please you then.

Charlie tracked Madison VanWatson down at her place of employment, the consignment shop, and proposed then and there.


Madison moved into the empire house and completed her lifetime wish, Living in the Lap of Luxury. The house will never be luxurious, but they have a ton of money and four businesses. That put Madison in a good enough mood to introduce herself to her mother-in-law to be.


When Charlie got home from work, they were married out in the yard.


They then had a private celebration.


Not long after, there was a commotion out in the yard, and a tiny boy with his dad’s skin tone was born.


This is Conrad, grandchild number 5. Flip and Isla have been holding onto that wish forever. Conrad’s traits are Insane and Brave. Maybe he has some of his mom’s features…maybe.


Conrad was kept busy. Charlie taught him his last skill.
Charlie: You will never see clouds.
Conrad: Fine by me. Reward certificates are much more interesting to gaze at.


Conrad had his Child birthday and just in time too. Grandchild number 6 was due in a few days. Conrad is now a Heavy Sleeper.


Conrad: A firefighter’s coat! Exquisite!
What! Are you crazy? Oh, never mind.


Take a deep breath, Charlie. Go prepare meal number 74. Madison can handle this better without your help.


Yes, the newest family member has arrived, but what’s really important here is that the trash compactor is broken.

Ah, Sims logic.  "My second child was just born, but what really made today important was that the trash compactor was broken."  Craziness!

@PeregrineTook , I've never played with Madison before, but she has the cutest voice, especially when playing with the dollhouse.

Little Carla Khan-Doe was taken immediately to a birthday cake. Her traits are Excitable and Eccentric.


She worked hard on learning her toddler skills.
Isla: We’ll have your birthday party just as soon as you perfect your vocabulary.
Carla: Ooo, a party with cake and guests and everything?
Isla: Well, cake and whoever is here at the moment. People straggle in at all hours.


Hey, you look pretty good and blue’s your favorite color. No mirror and dresser for you.


Delta missed the party. He was busy at the park.


That went well. Delta has a girlfriend.


Conrad made the honor roll and had his birthday the same day. His traits are now Insane, Brave, Heavy Sleeper, and Daredevil. He’s a proud employee at the grocery store.


Not many days later, Flip and Isla decided to fill the last slot in the house.


Before the newest K-Doe could be born, Carla became a teen with the traits Excitable, Eccentric, Daredevil, and Kleptomaniac. She took a job at the cemetery.


Charlie completed the last of his requirement by reaching level 10 in the culinary career. Thanks for the fancy fridge! You can relax now.
Charlie (mumbling): Must work at home.


Amidst sparkles, child number 5 made her grand entrance. No rabbit-hole job for you!


Here she is Echo Khan-Doe, an Excitable Heavy-Sleeper.


Echo somehow managed to learn her toddler skill even with all the chaos around her. Things should calm down soon.


About a day and a half after being born, Echo had her child birthday adding the Ambitious trait.


Due to some well-timed school opportunities, Carla hit the honor roll only one day after Conrad, and the little family moved next-door.


A very fleeting peace settled over the empire house

@PeregrineTook and @CeresIn  I completely agree. Flip's black hair seems to be really dominant. I'm hoping to see a liitle more red and blond might be nice for a change.

Delta invited Blair over and asked her to move in. Hmm, perhaps Delta and I should be concerned that Blair is talking to him but thinking lovey thoughts about Flip.


That didn’t keep them from looking rather smug after hearing chimes.


Meanwhile, Echo has been busy wrapping her daddy around her little finger.


And worshipping her older brother, the rocker.
That’s what it said “worship”. I find that a tad disturbing. I prefer to think she was just schmoozing him.


For now Echo is the only child in the household. She enjoys her dollhouse. She’s named the dolls Sierra and Victor. (This is for you @Magpie2012)


Blair: I feel a compulsion to listen to kids’ music while rocking and reading logic books. Why is that?
No idea.


Blair and Delta both have wished to get married. Sorry kids, you can get engaged, but you need to delay the marriage until after Delta gets that last level in his career. He works so few days that we really can’t delay it.


While Blair was in labor, Delta was off getting his 10th guitar skill opportunity completed. He’s a guitar star!


He’s also the father of three tiny girls, one witch and two fairies.
I guess we overdid the kids’ music Blair.

@PeregrineTook , I wish the grandkids would take after there townie parents a little more.

It’s time to introduce the triplets.
This is Dorri who Loves the Outdoors and is a Couch Potato. No we’re not buying a TV and certainly not putting one outside.


Darya is Artisitic and a Couch Potato. No easels outside either.


Echo: Hold it! Don’t age up that last one until I empty these potty chairs.


Delia is Clumsy and Loves the Outdoors. You can go outside and trip all you want.




Let the team training begin.


Echo became a teen and added the trait Lucky. She took a job at the bookstore.


Mortimer Goth had come over after school and was given a cake too.
All afterschool visitors will be aged up from now on. You have been warned.


The triplets soon had their birthday. It took a day longer than usual because…triplets.
Dorri’s new trait is Never Nude…very useful.


Darya became an Angler. At least you’ll be happy when I send you off to fish at the park.


Delia is now a Technophobe. Enjoy the constant use of the radio.


Echo got her promotion at the bookstore and promptly began her real work.


At about this time Delta finally reached level ten in his music career and completed his lifetime wish. As soon as the girls are ready, they will be moving out.


At last Delta and Blair could be married.

@PeregrineTook , Thanks, it seemed especially hectic having triplets this time. I think it added a day to each life stage.

@Magpie2012 , I won't get as far as S and V in this empire so it was nice to include those names.

Echo took a class in gardening and planted whatever common French grapes the family had. She fertilized the plants using the rapid grow station and the little suns. She will only be harvesting. The gate will be unlocked occasionally to allow Isla in to weed.


All the girls hit the honor roll on the same day. Cake and makeovers for everyone!
First Dorri whose traits are Loves the Outdoors, Couch Potato, Never Nude, and Irresistible.


Darya added the trait Mooch to Artistic, Couch Potato, and Angler. She’s my favorite of the triplets, but I’m not sure why.


Delia traits are now Clumsy, Loves the Outdoors, Technophobe, and Dramatic.


The triplets all got jobs at the grocery store. By that time everyone was exhausted so Echo’s birthday had to wait until morning.
Echo’s final traits are Heavy Sleeper, Excitable, Ambitious, Lucky, and Irresistible. Her lifetime wish, Bottomless Nectar Cellar, was completed immediately. Later that day, Echo purchased the bistro, now named Echo’s Nectar Bistro.


Parker Langerak came over after school and was given birthday cake. Now you don’t have to finish that homework. You’re welcome.


Echo is now exclusively squishing French grapes. She’s reached level 10 in the nectar making career and only has the Vizard of Vine challenge left to complete her supermax. Thus far she has harvested 355 bunches of French grapes and turned 320 of them into nectar.



Even though there’s no room in the house, it was time for Echo to seek out a partner. She found Stiles McGraw and there was an instant attraction. This is the Sims, so that’s good enough.


Being a nerd, the first thing he did was insult Echo.


Resistance is futile, Stiles.




The triplets should be on the honor roll at the end of the school day. Enjoy what may be your last decent meal.


Delta and his family moved to this house that needed no editing. The couch potatoes should enjoy finally having TVs. Sorry, Delia.


The remaining family celebrated. Time to move in Stiles.

I think Darya is my favorite of the triplets as well.  Dorri's cute, but her features make her come across as just a bit harsh, and Delia looks sleepy.  It's adorable, but sleepy.  Congrats on continued fantastic progress.  I love how quickly the bottomless nectar cellar LTW can happen with a wealthy family that plans ahead  :=)

@PeregrineTook , Planning ahead is what I do best. I like that those expensive bottles of nectar count towards the career as well.

@Magpie2012 , I really like Echo too. It's been nice having a self-employed sim for a change.

@Malley, I like that everyone has favorites from Sunset Valley. I hope to get Jamie involved eventually.

@CeresIn , Echo is lovely. This family is all so nice. Looking at Isla's friendship panel, she is still best friends with all her children, grandchildren, and in-laws except Gobias who she still dislikes.

Echo and Stiles became engaged in the most romantic spot in town. Swept away by the moment, they were immediately wed. I stopped the bride from dumpster diving by sending them home.


Despite the ringing phone, they successfully tried for baby.


Echo: I want to have a girl.
Maybe, maybe not.
Echo: I want to drink nectar.
No.


Three family members in the basement at once, and only one was coerced!


This batch of nectar sent Echo over the top. She is now a Vizard of Vine and has completed all her requirements.


The newest member of the family was taken immediately to a birthday cake.


Here is Evan, Friendly and Hates the Outdoors. Hey, he looks like his daddy!


Stiles: Mommy was going to do this, but she’s busy losing her breadfast.


Isla: No, Grim is not coming for Mommy. The sounds from the bathroom just make it seem that way.


Evan quickly learned his toddler skills and had his next birthday adding Never Nude to the mix.


Echo: We’re having another baby!
Stiles: *thumbs up*


Stiles: I got a promotion!
Echo: *thumbs up* I hope you can tell by the look on my face that these are not equivalent.


Darlene Bunch came over after school.
Darlene, please recommend our birthday service to your siblings.


Darlene stayed until after 4am.


We’ll leave with this heartwarming photo.
Stiles: Cut the racket! I’m trying to sleep here!
