You're welcome Lily. So you don't have to make her change into it prior to her being pregnant? I thought you did! With Penny, she had just eaten Ambrosia the night before!  ::)

EEK I am so confused about the clothes eventhough it is in plain english, are you saying there is a maternity section? Or do you mean the regular clothing options omg I feel so slow today. Great mini update by the way, enjoyed it with my tea.

@ Isys: There isn't an actual designated maternity clothes section in CAS, but the game uses specific pieces for maternity wear - these are the pieces I'm talking about when I say "maternity clothes." Let me go into my game and find the name of the specific pieces for you, and everyone.

@ Esther: Because of my little finding-out-she's-pregnant-at-work glitch thing, Therie didn't show her pregnancy until she spun into her pajamas that night. When she got out of the shower in the morning she spun into the maternity dress I made for her. Since mornings are so busy with designating showers and breakfasts, I forgot to check her clothing choice until she came down for breakfast! And then I got super excited that it worked!

EDIT: Sims 3 Vanilla Maternity Clothes: (numbers designate their position among the Vanilla clothing when you scroll down)
Everyday Tops: T-shirt over Long Sleeved Shirt (#12) // Workout Jacket (#26) - both also available for Athletic
Everyday Pants: Slim Fit Jeans (#18) // Workout Pants (#24) - available for Athletic
Everyday Outfits: Empire waist Dress (#5) - only available option for Formal and Sleepwear
Swimwear Outfits: V-neck One-piece (#2)

I just about had a heart attack when Grim came for Wunn!  In all the dynasty stories I've read I don't think I've ever seen an immortal die.  Was he doing something in particular or was it a random thing?  I thought I read somewhere that you a deathflower only works once so that even if you have a deathflower in your inventory, if Grim comes calling a second time he won't be persuaded to take the flower instead of the Sim.  Is that true?

Well I hope things aren't quite so exciting in the Sunburst household this week!

Cool! No Katluvr that's not true, Grim can come as many times as he chooses and as long as you keep a flower in your inventory, your sim will never die. They will give it to him everytime and he will go away!  ;D

@ Katluver: Wunn wasn't doing anything in particular, probably watching his Deathfish (oh the irony!) I'm pretty sure it was a matter of me forgetting just how old he was and him dying of old age - well, attempting to anyway. Oops. I even had Lolly make a bunch of extra Ambrosia meals and store them in the treasure chest, just for these occasions. Therie isn't skilled enough yet to make Ambrosia.

@ Isys: No problem. It was super fun when it worked for me!

~

Tu: Week 16 (Monday through Saturday)

Well, when your week starts off like that, best be ready for anything!

Even though this picture was taken on Sunday, Therie still wants me to include it. Something about having to show off her fabulous new maternity dress! One of a kind design. Blah, blah, blah. I'm a guy, I don't get the whole "oh my gosh, have to show everybody this!" Anyway, here is her dress under better lighting.



After all the Grim excitement, Marc hops out and takes Lolly's latest favorite toy out for a spin. I think he's enjoying himself!



All I can say is at least she finishes cooking my favorite meal, before the labour pains start. It would have been such a shame if the baby had caused her to burn the grilled cheese.



With the future as a single mother staring her in the face ... umm, sqeezing her insides? ... Therie calmly gathers herself together and heads for the hospital alone.



Everyone, please welcome my second grandbaby: Fhore Moe Sunburst! (Moe in honour of her Daddy, Moses.)



Her application papers have vapourized it seems! Therie still does not receive her mat leave but finds time for a quick snuggle with her daughter before catching the car pool to work. I should go over there and give her new boss a piece of my mind!



Therie heads for bed as soon as she gets home from work, so that she is fully rested when Fhore wakes in the morning. I get the delight of putting my little granddaughter to bed. Grandpa card and everything, you know.



Moses pops out to meet his daughter but misses her bedtime by a half hour! We tell him to come a little earlier tomorrow night.



Yes, I know I should be sculpting or running on the treadmill, but how can anyone deny me the joy of snuggling my granddaughter?! I dare you to try and take her out of my arms!



Therie is trying to move on with her life, being a single mother and working full time is wearing her down everyday. She's even staying in touch with all her close friends, here and in France. Not sure if this is a weak moment or the right moment, but Wilbert Sanford becomes more than a friend out on the front porch.



Moses is still making his nightly rounds and catches a nap in the spot where he slept only twice. I think he's still obsessed with her in some way.



Then before we know it, it's time for our little sunshine to have her birthday. I invite the whole family again and a few family friends.



It's been a long time, but it looks like Fhore has her grandfather Marc's hair! Her favorite colour is blue, just like her Mom.



Wilbert is invited over during Therie's next day off and she has a huge surprise for him! And all of us really.







With that, Wilbert joins the family. This may all seem a little bit fast, whirlwind actually, but Wilbert and Therie have been best friends since childhood and they may even have gotten married earlier if Moses hadn't refused to give up. I'm glad she found someone who adores her and can provide love and help in raising Fhore. My Therie is too young to be facing a Immortal lifetime alone already.



Great Grandpa Wunn sits young Fhore down for her first serious conversation.



As cute as she is, Fhore has no problems expressing her opinion! After an entire day of posing for sculptures, portraits, and photographs she has had enough!



Here is the new and improved look of Wilbert Sanford Sunburst. Interestingly enough, him and Therie are the exact same age. Looks like he should be around all the way to her Ambrosia party!



I leave you with this final picture: no your eyes aren't messing with your head. That really is my Dad, Dynasty founder on his third time through elderhood, doing laundry. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!



Next Week: Tu starts the week at 92 91 days - will he make it?!! Does the Grim make another appearance, or tu?

Ha, my male Sims sure still know the values of showing off one's clothes.

Congratulations to Therie and Wilbert, I'm glad she won't have to spend her adult life alone *confetti!*

Thanks for all the good luck wishes for Tu! Boy that guy sure needs them.

It seems the supposedly "minor" changes I made from my first attempt to this one has made everything so much harder! Wunn took up gardening, which Therie did last time, instead of cooking. Tu's LTW is Renaissance Sim instead of Visionary and the supermax and career are sculpting instead of painting (allowing painting for other LTWs that need it.) Generation 2 spare has completed their Visionary LTW weeks ago while in France. And now I have to work handiness skill in somewhere, last time it went nicely with Therie and gardening for the Science career. Maybe I'll send Wunn into science and learn handiness, but then if I do an inventor, inventing would have to be their supermax. Bah!

Well, I'm off to catch up on the rest of the forum and then dive back into my game with a 92 91 day old not-yet-Immortal Immortal heir. Oh dear. So much temptation to give him a Deathflower just in case.

What?! Go through all this trouble and stress and then throw away the end prize (HoF) for one silly Immortal! Crazy, Esther, crazy. ;D

When I go into the game in a few minutes, he's getting up at 4am (when the exhausted moodlet expires) and hitting the treadmill again (he's halfway to level 10 athletic). Then it's back to the sculpting stone for one last sculpture (he needs $500) and then hopefully that's it. But it's a Dynasty, the Grim knows.

Thanks for all the encouragement guys! Much appreciated.

I also need Theo to stick around because he's one of Tu's 6 best friends. As for the Grim, he came back but I'm going to leave you in suspense until I have an actual update. *Fiendishly Delighted* Juxt, I appreciate your efforts on trying keeping the Grim too busy to swing by the Sunburst residence.

My husband went to work so I'll put the Sunbursts aside and hopefully finish my Garden of Eatin' challenge in the next 5 hours (1.5 weeks to go!) Later!

Therie: Week 17 Part 1

I finally get my chance to post our family updates! I thought this day would never happen. My Dad is the worst for procrastination in this house. I mean seriously, is it that hard to sculpt something good and then cart it off to the consignment shop to sell? Mostly I am mad because I did not get to announce my marriage, pregnancy, Fhore's birth, or my second marriage! You got all that from my Dad's point of view. Sheesh.

*OK, letting it go*

Here is what is going on in the Sunburst house this week.

Dad wakes up Monday morning, at 4am, with a call from the Grim questioning his commitment to this Dynasty thing. Five minutes later, he wakes up everyone one else sleeping on the second floor when he jumps on the treadmill. Half a skill point to go. The call from Grim gets him sweating like a pig!



That accomplished, Dad spends the rest of the day visiting with two close friends and makes them best friends, all the time texting with the Grim keeping him in the loop about Dad's progress. 8pm rolls around and Grandpa Wunn breaks into Grandma Lolly's French treasure chest in the dining room for this:





At age 91 days, my Dad finally gets to enjoy the Immortal Meal, in the same spot Grandpa sat to eat his. [Sorry I was mistaken earlier when I said he was 92.]

Ready to celebrate his new-found youth, Dad rushes into the Art room the next day to convince Uncle Theo to hit the Stadium with him. The Grim doesn't give everyone a negotiable schedule.







Dad is very thankful to the Grim for leaving Uncle Theo with us until Dad attained his Immortality.

R.I.P. Theo Sunburst, 92 days
Twin Brother, Son, Uncle, Great Uncle, Brother-in-Law, Fiance, Father; Sculptor, Painter, Photographer
He leaves behind his Father, Twin Brother, Niece, Great Niece, Brother-in-Law, 3 Children
He joins in the afterlife his Mother, Sister-in-Law, Fiancee

~

In other news, (time must go on) my precious baby Fhore Moe still needs to learn the basics of life. During my mornings before work, I teach her how to walk. I also get to potty train her as Dad says that is the responsibility of the parent. Yuck! But he is right. If I do not want to do it, why should anyone else have to? She is my kid after all.



Grandpa Tu gets the honours of teaching her to talk.



The following are a couple of random pictures I manage to get. (I get a little over excited with the whole taking-pictures-for-updates thing! Hence why I have to break this up into two parts.)

I catch Grandpa Wunn's Deathfish "Trying for Baby!" Super cool! And yes, there is one more fish in the tank after this.



When you leave your picnic basket unattended, there is no guarantee that there will still be food left when you get back to it.



With all his new spare time, Dad goes on Sci-Fi adventures. Maybe someday I'll have the free time to try the goggles!



OK, back to the real stuff! Here is one last picture of my little cutie pie.



It is her birthday today. Of course, I throw her a party and invite the whole family, except Steve's new girlfriend, that situation is just too nasty to think about!





Here she is, half grown up and ready to start school tomorrow. Does anyone else see her Grandpa Marc in her face?



She is already showing signs of independent thinking: that sure is a different way to eat birthday cake! [Fhore doesn't have the slob trait.]



This is where I will leave things for the moment. Next update in a little while, I need to stretch my legs and tuck Fhore into bed.
