I agree with everyone else.  Jasmine turned out beautifully.  And Hello Steel lips. 

My solution for grumpy husband is find something for him to do.  My husband plays Eve while I play WoW/Sims/whatever.   He can't complain if he's doing the same thing or something similar.

Thank you for all the compliments on Jasmine!  If she had Jori's mouth she would be perfect, but even the Steel lips seem to fit with her looks.

Good luck finding mummies in Egypt.

Oh, Jori found her mummies alright - she kicked the butts of 2 of them in the Sphinx.  The 3rd one got one of Jeremey's mummy snacks and appears to have gone away.  This led to a little problem.  I've been trying to get Jeremey to level 3 visa because I want to sell their vacation home in Egypt and move them into one of the 2 luxury home there.  So Jeremey lands the Torched, Soaked, Cursed adventure...after he and Jori disposed of the 3 mummies in the Sphinx.   ::)  I remember when I had Jessica and Sam in Egypt there were a couple of other mummies (the one Jess took a picture of and one that Sam found when he was clearing out the traps in someone's basement).  So I took Jeremey to the basement and sure enough...MUMMY!  Problem is, with level 10 athletic skill and a couple of points in MA, Jeremey won the fight...mummy went poof...no curse.  So off to the next spot, but when he got there the mummy was gone.  I think I ran out of mummies to complete that quest!  Unbelievable.

Wow, Jasmine has some of the prettiest eyes I've ever seen!

I think so, too!  I love their shape and their color.  They are smiling eyes.

My solution for grumpy husband is find something for him to do.  My husband plays Eve while I play WoW/Sims/whatever.   He can't complain if he's doing the same thing or something similar.

I wish!  My husband doesn't share my enthusiasm for video games.  He reads the newspaper instead.  He is actually very understanding of my Sims/WoW addiction.

Brawls, Birthdays, Romance, and a Divine Meal

Shortly after Jasmine's teen birthday, Jemma, Jeremey and I took her for an extended trip to Egypt.  Jeremey wanted to explore tombs and we thought it would be a good chance for her to work on her inventing.  Truth be told, I wanted to test my martial arts skills against a mummy, but I didn't tell anyone besides Jeremey so as not to worry anyone.

Jeremey and I headed off to the Sphinx in search of mummies while Jemma and Jasmine settled in to our vacation home.  

Oh Sweet!  A Mummy!


Sizing up the competition...she doesn't look so tough.


Let the fisticuffs begin!


Hasta la vista, mummy!


And the winner is...


Our trip wasn't all mayhem and violence.  Jeremey and Jasmine spent some quality time tomb raiding.



And I was glued to my board breaker.  We could barely carry our luggage for all the gems I found.



Our trip ended too soon, but Jasmine had to get back to school and Jemma and I had to get back to work.  I was promoted to level 9 in my professional sports career before I left, so I was anxious to get back and work towards my final promotion.  Sure enough, the day after we got back I got my final promotion - a day before my birthday.  All I have to do is maintain my friendships, get my portrait and ice sculpture done, and immortality is mine.

Jasmine is on the honor roll and is progressing well with her inventing.  She registered as self-employed when she turned a teenager and is already at level 7 of her inventing career.  She adores Jeremey and spends time with him whenever she can.




Unfortunately she's not as athletically inclined as Jeremey and I are.  Thank goodness for the hot tub to soothe some aching muscles.



I'm worried about her, though.  She doesn't seem to have many friends and no potential suitors.  We still have some time before her birthday, but I would feel better if she took an interest in someone.  There are so few eligible young men to choose from - most of them are vampires.

We decided to tempt fate and have a party to celebrate our birthdays - I can hardly believe Jemma, Jeremey and I are going to be OLD!  We all lined up to take our turns at the birthday cakes...



...and then hightailed it to the dresser for makeovers!





We don't look half bad for a bunch of geezers!

Mom immediately dragged me to her studio to get to painting and sculpting.  While we were there I found out someone had spread a horrible rumor that I had cheated on Jeremey and what's worse is he believed it!  After all these years together...I was crushed.  He didn't want anything to do with me, our relationship was on the rocks and I wasn't sure we could save it.  I poured my heart out to him and, thankfully, he listened.  We talked all night and by the time the sun was coming up things were almost back to normal.  If I ever find out who did such a horrible thing I will give them to my extra special mummy treatment!

I spent the day catching up with two of my good friends, Marty Keaton and Katy Kuykendall.  By dinner time I had my best friends taken care of and Mom had finished my portrait and ice sculpture.  Time to sit down to my first meal of ambrosia.



Grandpa is a wonderful cook, but dang that stuff is naaasty!

Oh, and about Jasmine's love life...I think I might have worried for nothing.  She seems to have hit it off with a classmate, Lucas Aldrich.




He's a little older than Jasmine.  He graduated high school while she still has a week left to go.  Nevertheless, they are the best of friends, and what more could I ask for my precious daughter.

And all those gems we brought back from Egypt...Mom has been having a field day working on her skull collection.

Welcome to the forum, SimMania!  Thank you for reading my dynasty. :)  Yes, this is Sims 3 on PC.

Jasmine is a couple of days away from her YA birthday and then she has to decide about Lucas.  He aged to YA about a week ahead of her and is bald and chubby, but there's something that I like about him.  Besides, Jemma got the Body Sculptor and there are no lack of athletes available to train him.  A simple call to Hair Club for Sims and we can take care of the local deforestation. 

The only other prospects are a couple of classmates who are closer to Jasmine's age.  She's still in school with them...but I'm rooting for the underdog.  We'll have to see what she decides, though.

Decisions, Decisions

The day before my birthday Mom sat me down for 'the talk'.  No, not that talk, the one about our family's unique heritage.  Mom told me about the dynasty and my role in it.  She told me how Grandpa Jackson kept it a secret from my great-grandmother, Agnes, and how he regretted that decision once she was gone.  Mom said that Dad and Aunt Jemma knew all about it and now it is my turn.  I'm not sure how I feel about all of this, but at least I have three generations of immortals to help me adjust. 

Aunt Jemma decided a big birthday bash was just what this house full of elders needed, so she invited all our friends and extended family over.  Time to make a wish...I wish I didn't have to make the hardest decision of my life...



Not bad, just need to perk up the wardrobe with some violet...



Ahhhh, that's better!



It seems everyone is enjoying the party more than I am.  Look at Grandma go!  I'm gonna have to talk to her about some dancing lessons.



Now that I'm grown up I have to decide on a husband.  I've been going steady with Lucas all through high school.  He's my best friend and I always figured we'd get married when I was old enough. 



If it weren't for Raj Ellis...his real name is Rahsaan, but I call him Raj for short.  We started hanging out together at school after Lucas graduated and I really like him.  Speaking of which, where is he?  He told me that he and his brother Albert would be here.  He's gonna get a piece of my mind!  Whoa...hello tall, dark and handsome!

 

No way!  It's Raj!  *gulp*  I think I just made my decision...





Lucas took the news better than I expected and we're still good friends.  Grandma told me that he reminds her of her best friend, Amir Hart.  They started to date in high school and Grandma ended up choosing Grandpa instead of Amir.  She told me that they remained best friends until he passed away.  I hope Lucas and I can repeat history.

Mom is all excited and dragged me off to try on all sorts of froufrou wedding gowns.  She is determined to make me look like a lace-covered nightmare!  I won't even tell you what she wants to do with my hair!  We finally agreed upon a white satin gown with rhinestone straps...no jewelry and no veil...simple and elegant.

We decided to keep the guests to a minimum, just our families.  We held the ceremony at our house at sunset.



Raj's mom took this shot.  I think it's so funny...Dad is in denial about his little girl's first kiss as a married woman and Aunt Jemma is cheering us on in the background.   ;D



Yes, she's in her bathing suit.  We've all learned to ignore her *cough* eccentricities *cough*.  Here she is with Mom.



Grandpa Leighton had some words of advice for Raj and I.



I told Dad I would always be his little girl...



Tomorrow Raj and I are heading to France for our honeymoon.  I've asked Mom, Dad, and Aunt Jemma to come along, too.  I know I may not have many more trips with Dad and Aunt Jemma, so I want to take advantage of every opportunity.  Fortunately Raj likes my crazy family, so he doesn't mind.


Author's Note:  I really was conflicted about Lucas vs. Rahsaan.  Although Lucas didn't age up very well, I'm pretty certain that he would look quite nice after a trip to the mirror and a session in the body sculptor.  Plus he's a kleptomaniac, which I thought could have some interesting potential for the dynasty, given Jackson's penchant for swiping things.  Then I saw Rahsaan all grown up and it was no contest.  All I could think was what beautiful nooboos he and Jasmine could make.   ;D  Once they got married I found out that I had made the right choice, he has the klepto trait!  SCORE!!  He also has daredevil, clumsy, bookworm, and frugal - with a LTW of Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law.  He's gonna be fun to play!  The only drawback is that is favorite color is aqua.  I'm still trying to figure out how to redecorate in violet and aqua, both lovely colors, but not exactly something I want to look at for a whole generation.

Jasmine sends her thanks for all your kind wishes. 

I would have gone with Raj too :)
Yeah, it was pretty much no contest when I saw YA Rahsaan - fashion show to follow.  I haven't seen such a hunky sim since Antone Dreamweaver...hubba hubba!

You don't hear much about Jackson now.... ???

Jackson is doing fine, it's just that he doesn't do much interesting stuff on his own and with 7 sims to control I pretty much just make sure he and Jessica aren't doing things that would compromise the dynasty - like increasing skills earmarked for future generations.  He went through a phase there where he was partying every night.  Now Jess and Jori are getting more invitations than he is.

If left on their own, Jackson likes to play in the sprinklers, Jess likes to paint or sculpt, Jori like to break boards or work out - although she sneaks off to cook sometimes so I may have to take the stove out of the kitchen, Jemma likes to go to the basement and stare at the gem skulls or the sculptures in the immortal museum, and Jeremey likes to work out or play in the sprinklers with Jackson.

I have finally built out the third floor of their house and half of it is a rec room.  I also upgraded the hot tub and moved it to the third floor - the space where it used to be is now the 'logic zone' (chess board and telescope).  Only Jemma has access to it now, since logic will be someone's supermax skill down the road.

For decorating you could always do mostly aqua with violet highlights here and there.  I'm not sure which color would kill my eyes faster!  Or maybe a medium purple between the violet/aqua *shrug*

I'm thinking predominantly gray with touches of aqua and violet since they are both such bold colors.  Gheez has posted some tartans in the swap shop and one of them is absolutely perfect for the newlyweds.
