Does Gabrielle have the Surrounded by Family LTW? Still, they're all so cute, I can see why you want to keep having toddlers.

Poor Kieran seems to be down on his luck... I've got it! It's the hat! Now that he's got no awesome hat, everything is falling apart! Or it could be a glitch... but my idea is more likely ;D

Hmm... you may be onto something there...

Oh dear. :o

Poor Kieran! That's just terrible...

At least the nooboos are adorable. Wow, do Gabrielle and Daniel have a houseful! I'll bet Daniel is wanting another boy to help even things out a bit.

That part was just hilarious!

He probably does want another boy. My partner said he'd have gone to live in the garage if he lived in a house with that many girls. Maybe I should get Daniel and Albert a garage!

It can't be! Keiran, a zombie! He has to be cured right away!

I didn't even have anything to cure him with :(

Not zombie Kieran! Of all the sims in town to choose from, Kieran had to become a zombie!

Come on, this baby has got to be Gabrielle's last. Five kids, really?

This pregnancy is the last, don't worry. And I agree, why did all the annoying paparazzi escape zombiefication but poor Kieran didn't?!

Does Gabrielle have the Surrounded by Family LTW? Still, they're all so cute, I can see why you want to keep having toddlers.

She does. I did consider changing it but thought that'd be mean. And partly yes it's an excuse to have cute toddlers around.

Of course, an exuse for toddlers. Remember, they do grow up fast (very fast in the sims).

We Haven't Had A Birthday In A While...



Iris: Daddy. DADDY. DADDDDDYYYYYY!

Daniel: What?

Iris: There are weird people in the garden.

Daniel: You mean weird people who aren't you?

Iris: Daddy, that's not funny.

Daniel: Dad jokes aren't supposed to be funny.



Daniel: Oh hi little brother. Is this some kind of convention of last night's zombies?

Kieran: Your child is loud.

Former Zombie Convention: Very loud.

Kieran: And, anyway, it's a zombie recovery programme. Zombies are victimised in this society...

Ethel: You'd scream if he called you Ethie, too.



Daniel: I'm going to go and give her back to her mother. I don't know what she wants.

Ethel: I told you what I want. Loudly.

Kieran: My big brother. All the books in the world and he still has no common sense.

Sadly it's often that way.



Kieran: Oops.

I think you just lost your moral high ground on everything.



Kieran: It's not my fault. It's a side effect of zombification. Honest.

Daniel: What is?



The boys have a game of rock, paper, scissors for old time's sake.



Iris: Mummy, it moved!

Gabrielle: That's cuz there's a baby in there.

Iris: No there's not.

Gabrielle: Oh yes there is!

Iris: It's not panto season anymore Mummy. You're silly.

Gabrielle: We don't call people silly, remember?

Iris: Daddy does. Daddy said Ethel was silly.

Gabrielle: DANIEL!



On the subject of Ethel...



Ethel: Pink?!



And then Mary, who has been neglected by this story so far.



Mary: That's okay, I know you don't mean to.



Here's Ethel after her makeover. I told you calling a child Ethel would do funny things to them. She's very prim and proper.



And Mary. Who manages to be more normal, even if she does enjoy doing her homework.

Mary: *pops lifetime wish to become a World Reknowned Surgeon*

That'll be why then.



And Albert learns his toddler skills. It's a doddle for Daniel and Gabrielle at this point, they've got the technique down.



Though I'm not sure Albert really likes being taught to potty.

Albert: Smelly.

Gabrielle: You're the smelly one, kid.



And for the first time since Iris was born, Daniel finds time to do something other than deal with babies.

Kieran doesn't look like a zombie in those pictures.
Is that because it's daytime? Are they normal during daytime? Or am I having a dizzy moment here?
I love Ethel to bits - her insisting on the proper use of her name makes me giggle every time.
I wonder why she cut her gorgeous hair off?
Great update! :)

They change back to human at 6AM. Zombification is fortunately temporary.

I still feel so bad for Kieran, becoming the most reviled life state ever. D:

Thank you so much for clearing that up, Trip. I still feel bad too... It would have been ten times nicer, if he had become a cool vampire with a very long life ahead of him still.

You'd think Iris would understand that the baby is in Mummy's tummy, considering this is the third time for Iris (Twins classed as one pregnancy).

Trip, SimBlip: Yeah, the zombies dezombify and tend to stand in your garden looking really confused until around 11am. And then disappear. I'd also rather Kieran had turned into a different life state - vamps and fairies are enabled in the file so either would have been fine with me!

That hair looks excellent on Ethel. Iris must've had a paranormal encounter with Kelsey or something.

Ethel has a very particular style. Not one I'd go with if I had access to all the hairstyles in the sims! Iris would probably say that the shark threat is so obvious nobody needed to tell her about it. But I do suspect Kelsey.

Ethel and Mary looks are very different. Can't wait to see Albert all grown up.

Yeah, they're very obviously different despite being twins. And have very different futures (I'm further ahead in game). I'm afraid Albert doesn't grow up for a few chapters yet though...

You'd think Iris would understand that the baby is in Mummy's tummy, considering this is the third time for Iris (Twins classed as one pregnancy).

Sims have very limited common sense though, especially Iris. She might be hinting at something else though...

Babies, Toddlers, Children, Teens



Pillow-fighting is a new obsession of Mary and Ethel's. If they're not beating each other up with pillows then they're asleep or at school. It keeps them out of trouble.



It's what they're doing when Daniel starts becoming old.

Daniel: Wooo! Yayyyy! Birthdayyyy! Hey, wait, why am I cheering? I'm getting old.

Mary: Can you get older than you are already, Dad?



Daniel: Ow.

Ethel: Wow, now you're really, really old Dad!

Daniel: Not helping. Not helping at all.



And because the CrumpleSteels don't believe in doing only one thing at a time to keep it nice and simple for me, Gabrielle promptly goes into labour.

Gabrielle: Ow ow ow ow ow *puffs*

Ethel: Mummy! Are you going to die?!

Gabrielle: Daniel, can you amuse the kids?

Daniel: I'm looking at my wrinkles, you do it.

Gabrielle: I'M GIVING BIRTH!



Here he is as an elder. Eyes shut and avoiding the reality of being old.



Iris: Quick, good steed! The sharks are after us, we must away!



Meet baby Margaret. Who will from now on be known to everyone as Peggy.

Forum: Hi Peggy!



Gabrielle: And this one's called Josephine. Josie for short.

That's the same baby.

Gabrielle: I think I know how many babies I've just given birth to. Besides, it's quite clearly Josie.

They all look the same to me.

Daniel: And me.



Gabrielle: See, this is Peggy.

Daniel: Are you sure?

Gabrielle: Someone get them in the same screenshot so you'll all believe me!



Sorry, we've got a birthday to go to. Iris is going to leave her child years behind (which mostly means less time spent on her rocking-horse) and enter teenager-dom.

Daniel: I've got my shotgun ready.



Iris: The Sharkles are attacking!

Sparkles.

Iris: Sparkles are baby Sharkles!

Gabrielle: My daughter is mad, isn't she?



Iris: No. She's not.

She's talking about you.

Iris: We know that. We're not stupid.

Gabrielle: I take that back. She's bonkers.



But she's very pretty. She's gained the flirty trait and really does look quite a lot like Gabrielle I think. Except inheriting Daniel's extreme skinniness.



Daniel: It's okay baby. Don't cry. Daddy knows which twin you are. Honest he does. You're... Peggy?

Gabrielle: Josie.

Daniel: I should have used my fifty-fifty.



Mary loves pillow-fighting so much she's fighting the air.



And here's the compulsory cute toddler shot of the chapter.



Next Chapter on the CrumpleSteels: Egypt, and will Daniel ever work out which twin is which?

Anyway, Iris is beautiful. She looks a little like Kelsey.

It's one of my favourites too. When she aged up with it I had to keep it, partly because I love it so much but partly because it's so rare they age up with a nice one or one that fits their personality. And normally a ridiculous outfit to go with it!

It's the name of a work colleague of mine, who is lovely. Definitely use it! And thanks Corey.

Daniel is a sweetie and still looking good. He's going to need extra vitamins, though, to keep the Sharkles at bay!  ;D

She's really gorgeous, and quite different-looking for an eighth generation. I always really like it when you can see more than one parent in a sim child.

She grew up really lovely! And that bit about Sharkles, lol. Bonkers indeed, that was almost scary! Gollum much?

I hadn't thought about Gollum, but I sort of see it now... I love insane sims though.

Daniel is a very distinguished looking elder. Poor old guy dealing with a whole lot of youngsters! At least they're adorable youngsters. :)

I know, he's an elder and he still has two babies and a toddler to be looking after! I thought old age was meant to be a time of relaxation and doing what you want to...

If Iris's looks are anything to go by, we are in for an absolute treat! Mary, Ethel (love Ethel), Albert, Margaret and Josie... the list is rather long... hehehe!

Haha, yes, the list is very long. It won't be getting any longer though, the house is full and Gabrielle ages up to elder about a week after Daniel. Vitamins as a cure for Sharkles? You'll have to ask Iris about that!

Yeah, she's a little bit Addams family. In hopefully a good way. Thanks!

Sun, Sand, and Pushable Statues



Daniel and Iris have taken a trip to Egypt, in the hope it'll make the photography challenges slightly more achievable. The last time Daniel travelled there was a meteor, let's hope there isn't this time.

Daniel: I'm not sure I'm comfortable with my little girl being out in public with her nightie on.



Is a swimming costume better for him? Somehow I doubt it.

Iris: It's hot.

There's also no swimming pool in sight.

Iris: Social conventions of what to wear are boring.



Daniel settles down to read a book.

Random Egyptian: Oooh, that looks interesting?

Daniel: It's rude to read over someone else's shoulder.



And then Iris persuades him to go adventuring. Because yes, taking your elder and neurotic father into a tomb is really an amazing idea.

Daniel: No it's not.

Iris: Sarcasm, Dad. Even the sharks understand sarcasm.

Daniel: Glad to hear it. I'm fairly sure there's sharks down there, come to think of it.

Iris: Don't be silly. Everyone knows sharks can't climb stairs.

They said that about the Daleks too.



A bit of box-opening happens.

Daniel: Oh my god oh my god oh my god...oh. It's only some ancient coins.



Iris: Open! Now! I demand you!



Daniel: Why do I get all the worst jobs?

Iris: Don't you love me, Daddy?

Daniel: Oh course I do, but...

Iris: Push then!



They've solved the tomb, with not a few arguments along the way.

Iris: They were more like debates.



She also spends some time scootering it around to get pictures of cool landmarks. I didn't realise how long it takes to get around Egypt before this. I need to travel more.

Iris: I don't. There's too much Outside. Sharks can get you Outside.



Look at the gorgeous scenery though.

Iris: I'd rather look at it from indoors, thanks.



How can you not appreciate it? Really Iris.



Iris: I think there's a shark in my ear. I think it's telling me I shouldn't be having to take photos of plants.

You do. Get on with it.

Iris: Whhhyyyy.

Because it's a DecaDynasty, and you do what I say.

Iris: Whhhyyyy.

Are you seven?



Iris: I'm glad to be home.



And life has continued as normal while they were away. Here's a singed Mary to prove it.

Mary: Why do you only pay attention to me at the worst moments in time?



Daniel: Hey there Peggy, did you miss your daddy?

Gabrielle: You got it right, well done!

Daniel: Always the tone of surprise.



Gabrielle's taken to playing a game in her underwear.

Gabrielle: I don't have time to get dressed with this many children.



Gabrielle: Still haven't.
