Here are the promised pics of the grown Fleur and of Kristen Vinter. Fluer looks almost like a clone of her mom! Kristen's hair is actually dark brown, but looks black in the dimmer light of the greenhouse.

I decided to take a little break for simming right now, lol. I'm starting to harvest and put up produce from our RL garden and will be making plum jam pretty soon. Anyway, w/o further adieu,

Evie woke up this morning realizing that it was her birthday today. She's going be an elder! Last night as she was reminiscing about her life, how she had started out w/absolutely nothing and about how she met Timothy. She had been so busy trying to grow her tiny little garden and trying to keep the weeds under control that she forgot to pay her bills and he came as the repo man. She and Timothy had a talk last night.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

She walked over to Timothy and started sharing some of her memories w/him. You know Tim, when you first came here, I had only a sleeping bag and a few plants and this property to my name and you came as the repo man and repossessed one of my light bulbs.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I don't know why, but I felt oddly attracted to you even though you had a mean smirk on your face as you were doing it. Timothy replied Somehow, I also found you attractive.  Evie continued "I somehow found out how to contact you, but I don't even remember how. I have always wondered though what did you see in me that caused you to be so attracted?"

"As you know after all these years together, I'm not mean at all, but I had to act mean for my job. It was just a job and nothing more. One of the stipulations of the job was that I could not marry. If I wanted to marry, I would have to quit. The more I got to know you, the more I loved you and the more I knew that I just had to marry you. I was more than happy to quit that  job just for you."

"You're so sweet Tim! I will love you forever!" "I will also love you forever Evie!"

The morning of Gardener and Kirsten's wedding dawned bright and clear and sunny. It was a beautiful day and Gardener was thinking about his up and coming vows. He could hardly wait b/c he had been looking forward to this for a long time now. Kirsten and Gardener were just a teens when she moved in. Now they're young adults and ready to commit to their love forever.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Everything was set up and Evie made sure the buffet and bar were ready for the guests. When the time came, Gardener and Kirsten stood under the arch ready to say their vows although Kirsten had a few butterflies.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Evie could hardly believe how time was flying by. It seemed like just yesterday, he was just a little one and now he's grown and married!
As Gardener and Kirsten stood there, they began to recite their vows to each other

I take thee Kirsten

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

To be my beloved wife

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

To have and to hold forever til death do we part

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Kirsten repeated her vows also

I take thee Gardener to be my beloved husband

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Til death do we part

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

It was late by the time the wedding was over, but to Kirsten's surprise, the party was a roaring success verging on epic! After the party, they both collapsed into bed that night. The next day they decided to start their family immediately.

We leave off for now w/a nooboo on the way.

One more note here. I got rid of the money tree. I felt that it was just too "cheaty"

Last update for tonight;

It was time for Timothy to go. He was in his hot tub relaxing when he suddenly started floating. He couldn't figure out what was happening at first, but then realized that he was passing into the after life world. Galen happened to be in the same room and he was totally shocked at first. Timothy had a wonderful life and got to see his oldest son get married. Unfortunately, he tried begging grimmy for more time, but to no avail. Galen then realized what was happening. He was losing his dad! He was totally heart broken.

When Grimmy was finished, Galen decided to chat a bit w/him. At first he was asking why Grimmy took his dad away. When Grimmy told him that his dad was in a much better place now, Galen gave him a high five.

Then Grimmy asked Galen how he was doing in school.

After chatting a couple more min, Grimmy vanished. His job was done for now.

The time came for Kirsten to give birth. She had twin sons named Amande and Laurel. Amande is friendly and loves the outdoors and Laurel loves the outdoors as well as loves the heat. Fleur and Grandma Ellie just couldn't wait to play with and snuggle the babies.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Ellie is absolutely on top of the world now w/her new grandsons. Fleur also has the wish to attend university and I will send her. Her ltw is to be a Creature/Robot Cross Breeder. When she graduates and returns home, she will move out on her own after I put her into the science career. Galen has only a couple of days left of being a teenager. We'll see what happens then. So far, he has not rolled a ltw yet. He will probably move out very soon after graduating high school.
Also, Gardener finished expanding the house w/another bedroom which is the nursery. He's also decided to concentrate on growing fruit. He'll have a perfect Pomegranate the next time he plants it and he has a couple of perfect Life Plants and will have more shortly plus a few other fruits. He's saving the Pomegranate and Life Fruits for the future nectar maker. The family has a bit over $ 800k now mostly from the Red Berry Beans and Honey and a few other veggies. Right after his twin sons were born, Gardener went outside and started dancing in his formal wear! LOL

I'm currently playing w/Fleur at college. I found out that she really doesn't need to go to classes at all b/c her grades go up w/just fishing, and gardening, lol Only in the sims. I'm working getting those skills up for when she goes to work at the science center. Even as a townie, it should help.

Fleur is doing great in college. She decided to rent her own private house instead of living in the dorm. When she went to the Meet and Greet session, she met a young man named Nicholas Albright. So far she is on the Dean's List. During the last half of her first term, she discovered that she could skip classes and just go fishing and it kept her grades up. Leisure Day came around and she decided to throw a pool party. The only guest she invited was Nicholas who she has been keeping her eye on and chatting with every time she had a chance. When it came time for the party, one other guy, Scot Macklamoor crashed the party. She started talking w/him and discovered that there was a little chemistry between them. She decided against him though. When Nicholas came, he brought some waffles. She invited him to swim w/her, but unfortunately, she discovered that he is hydrophobic.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

All he could do was go into a panic when he was in the pool. The only way she could get him over his panic long enough to get out of the pool was to invite him to a venue. According to Scot (who stole her pool lounger), her party was a legendary success, but to Nicholas it was a totally lousy and horrible party b/c of his panic in the pool. She decided to give it another try though and invited him over again, but this time no swimming! As the night progressed, they shared their first kiss and he became her boyfriend.

When she graduates, she intends to marry him and then they can find a home of their own.

I know it's been a few days since I updated. As Fleur left for college for the last time, the family again waved goodbye to her.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fleur graduated from college w/flying colors and a straight A giving her a Suma Cum Laude degree in Science. The last term was a bit harder though b/c of it being winter and she couldn't fish. I tried other skills related to science, but they didn't help. She called her mom the night before the big exam and chatted a bit.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

She called everybody in the family that same night invited them over for the graduation ceremony. The next morning, she was a little nervous at first when she got her report card although she knew that she had passed. It had been hard this time, but she knew that she made it.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

When she read her report card, she let out a huge WHOOP!!!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

When everything was said and done, she headed home. It was at her drop off station where she tossed her diploma.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

She was glad to be home now. She would help w/the toddlers for a while and also work on her skills to ensure that she get a pretty high position in her chosen career. When she is ready, she will invite Nicholas to move in and then be married and they will move out together to their own house. Then Gardener and Kristen can grow their family.

Next up, pics of the twins.

As promised, here are some pics of the twins as toddlers and as children. First is Amande and then Laurel. I'm having a hard time trying to decide who  will be the heir, lol. I like the red hair. Amande has grandpa's hair and dark eyes and I'm not sure where those came from unless they came from Kristen's side of the family. Laurel has dad's and Grandma's hair and Kristen's blue eyes. Votes anybody?

In other news, Fleur just invited her boyfriend over and will have him move in. Also, I'm counting the days now, but Ellie is at the end of her life bar. It's just a matter of a couple of days now.

My vote is for Laurel. I had an Aunt Laurel for a while (she and mum's younger brother subsequently divorced) but I like Laurel's red hair.

I also vote for Laurel. That strawberry-blond-reddish hair and blue eyes combo is pretty smashing.

Quite a bit has happened since my last post. In a nutshell, Fleur is now married and she and Nicholas are expecting their first child, Evie passed on, The boys are continuing on and have A's in school, and Galen moved in his intended. She only has 1 more day of being a teen and then they can be married. I'm just going to be doing a private wedding for them. Then they'll move out as soon as he reaches his ltw of living in the lap of luxury which will happen very soon. Here are some pics of Fleur's wedding;

Fleur also starts out in the Science career at level 4. Even as a townie, she should progress pretty fast b/c all of her necessary skills for that career are maxed.

2 days later it was time for Evie to leave them and join her beloved in the afterlife.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

When Grimmy showed up, she remarked "is it time already?"

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Afterwards, she gladly joins her beloved

Although, they knew her time was close, it was still very, very difficult for the others, especially the boys who had never experienced this before.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

They all begged her not to go, but to no avail. It was time.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


I'm not sure what happened, but one of Fleur's wedding pics ended up last and I really don't want to re-insert all of the attachments just to put her pic where it belongs.  I just looked at it in modify mode and everything is in its proper place including that pic as listed below the post under "Attached," but there isn't any "attachment 5" listed in the attached pics within the post.  : /

One more shot  though of Evie's final resting place.

Some surprising things happened since last time. First of all, for the first time ever that I remember the burglar came approaching from the back! She came up from the back of the lot, giving the family plenty of time to tackle her or call the police.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

This didn't faze Gardener at all who is brave. It gave him plenty of time to get  out of bed and attack her. Of course all of the neighbors had to come over and watch.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

and whoops her lousy, criminal butt!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The fight took so much out of him that he was totally exhausted when everything was done.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Fortunately, he had just bought a bottle of Invigorating Potion from the Alchemy shop a couple of days before to have on hand just in case something happened that he didn't get enough sleep the night before. Little did he know that he would need it to revitalize himself after fighting the burglar. One thing I didn't know is that it lasts for 24 hrs. He did some skilling up to fulfill wishes that night and then went out the next morning to work on the garden. He has many, many Life Plants, getting ready for whoever will take up the Nectar making skill. All of the plants on the left are Life Plants. He also has a couple of perfect Pomegranate trees that  he will replant when they can be harvested.

In other, more pleasant news, Bambi Diamond finally grew up into a YA. I had to turn aging off for a couple of days b/c she had a wish to learn how to drive. There was no teaching her to drive in one week day. It could have been possible on the weekend, but not during the week. They woke up early Saturday morning and he decided to take the plunge. By that night, they were husband and wife.

Galen had been looking forward to this for a long time now. He had to wait for a little while b/c she was still just a teen, but he loved her anyway.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

She responded "How sweet! I love you too."

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Galen asked her to please be his girlfriend

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I'm soooo happy about this Galen! I've also wanted this forever!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Then suddenly Galen gets down on one knee and asks her to be his wife for real

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

She was so excited and said YES!!!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I don't want to put too many pics in one post so I'll continue in the next post.

I popped over to Fleur's household. When I checked on  her the previous day, she only had 1 more paid day off b/c of maternity leave. I checked again and now she had 4 days off! Sure enough she and Nicholas have one little boy, Deshaun and one on the way, lol  Here is Deshaun who has daddy's brown eyes.

Thanks Dee! I think he's the spitting image of daddy! Fleur had a little girl I named Petal in my played version of Fleur's family.
