Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 8: The Hartford Family Part 1  
Previously: Mark and Evlin got engaged. He asked her to move in. Then they got married. Then she found out she was pregnant. In the meantime, Jaya got a couple more wooHoos.

Jaya, romance sim, LTW: to woohoo 20 sims, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice
Evlin: pleasure sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 4 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 6 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy
Mark: family sim, LTW: marry off 6 children, 9 neat, 2 shy, 6 active, 3 serious, 5 nice

The gardener. Since he wooHoo'ed with Jaya, his work quality has gone way down hill. He will be fired.

Obviously Mark made the wrong choice. But he seems unaware of his demotion.

That's more like it.

Wifey Evlin comes out to make it better.

Yes it's snow. Perhaps you shouldn't have come outside in your pjs and bare feet.

They decide to go on a date to make Mark feel better and help Evlin reach her LTW.

Hmm Evlin. I thought you might get dressed before going out. Oh well. You're pregnant. That can be your excuse.

Evlin wants lobster.

They're going for a dream date...lobster for everyone!

That'll help with the dream date.

Jaya reached the top of the military track! My first of the challenge. Too bad her LTW is not career-related.

You may remember that in another family's round, Jaya did wooHoo with Woody. Now she wants to be friends with Woody. I'm sorry you only get them once until you've finished your 20.

Evlin is still dreaming of this Tricou boy. I'm guessing he's a teen so this dream is inappropriate.

Another date for Jaya. She wants to fall in love with Serafin. We can work on that.

HEY. Arlo is going to kiss Jaya! Arlo is her son-in-law!
Luckily one of them gets distracted before it happens.

And they are in love.

Yeah, not getting engaged. Let's start with wooHoo.

This car was a great purchase.

Dream date, but that's not important here. What is important is the wooHoo.

Five service sims, eh? Maybe you ought to meet some more of them.

She talks with a waiter about wooHoo. Real subtle.

Later that day...

Another date

Well this was bound to happen eventually. I'm surprised it took so long.

Hmm...this isn't good.

Or this is better.

Or not.  That was a wasted date.

Mark asks Evlin on a date the same night.

Good enough.

And the date ended just in time...

Aimee is born! She has brown hair and blue eyes. Like her grandma Jaya. And her auntie Gila.

I like when sims think appropriate things.

Work life also goes on...

Jaya's first day at her new job.

Promotion for Mark!

Evlin gets a promotion!

Jaya is running out of people she knows...so she calls the matchmaker.

The matchmaker sends her...I think his name is Jim. We'll call him Jim.

Jim thinks Jaya is totally hot. And Jaya likes him too.

Unfortunately, Jaya is too tired to wooHoo...but he's a good prospect for next time.

Oh and the baby is still here too.

Another promotion for Mark. It's ashame no one in this house has career-related LTWs.

Another date for Mark and Evlin where Mark fears that Meadow will be stinky.

And another date for Jaya...where she gets caught by Serafin. Oops.

And the slapping. Jim does not seem put off by this.

In love, good. Then...

Another one down.

Hmm...she's getting in again? Twice in one date?

Everyone thinks Jaya is hot.

Jim is still on a date with Jaya, yet is left watching the photobooth while she's in it with another man.

It was Ahbjeet. Real classy, Jaya.

After the date, Jim and Ahbjeet chat about the photo booth. Huh.

And that's enough for one entry...part 2 still to come.

I had to laugh at Evlin holding the newborn outside, in the snow, while it's naked! Now you'd think that would warrant a visit from the social worker - well in RL it might. It seems sims get away with it - but bad grades, that's another matter.
What's with Mark, and his now totally irrational fear of Meadow being stinky! Sims have long memories!
Finally Jaya is really getting somewhere with her LTW - although how she got away with having woohoo with Abijheet is beyond me. I suppose it was for the best she did, as I think she had her fair share of slaps this round.

I didn't even know what was happening there until they came out of the photo booth...that ACR is very funny sometimes. But it works for those romance sims.

And perhaps maxis might want to rethink the purpose of the social worker for sims 3...you're right...naked baby in the snow should be worse than bad grades!

Haha, Jaya is sure entertaining!
I like your matter-of-fact way of commenting your pictures!

I'm glad you like it...I'm not good at being too creative with story writing and I find that the sims can often make their own stories without too much additional from me.

I feel the same. Maybe you remind me of myself, and that's why I like you ;)
Don't be surprised if you are appearing in disguise in my Build a City Challenge anytime soon!

Ooo! That would be fun.

Relatedly, maybe I should get myself a sims-related icon one day, huh?

LOL gotta love Jaya, she's a riot! She must be fun to play!
Rachelreksims on April 17th, 2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
She is! I'm surprised she hasn't gotten into more trouble.
