Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 9: The Hartford Family Part 1  
Previously on the Hartfords, Aimee was born! She aged into a toddler with a tiara. The tiara was subsequently removed. Also, Jaya had more wooHoos and got caught cheating a few times. Oh and Evlin is pregnant again.

Aimee, toddler, 9 neat, 3 shy, 10 active, 10 playful, 3 grouchy (love those extreme personalities)
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

Evlin succeeds in potty training Aimee. In the last round, she learned to walk. This girl is doing well.

See? She walks.

I forgot why the garden club people had been invited over, but as long as they are here, Jaya asks for membership.

This plant is dead! Yeah, that's probably not good. We may need to fire the gardener again. Good help is hard to find, it seems.

Oh well. It was a last minute try anyway. Next time, we'll prepare.

Mark tries to teach Aimee the nursery rhyme. At least she looks interested.

Evlin finds that her OTH is music and dance.

Oh and Jaya is working on her next conquest.

Evlin and Mark are trying to have a dream date when one of Jaya's spurned lovers comes by.

Then Evlin gets out of the car for another pop.

After the date, Evlin tucks in little Aimee. Why isn't she a family sim?

Mark, do you really want to get in there?

Armando gives Mark a look. He's being cock blocked by the woman's son. Eventually, he gets out and realizes that Armando is naked. He's been naked. This is not new.

Another one down.

Meanwhile, inside...

Poor kid. She's usually pretty happy.

Oh and Mark likes science.

Again? Yes, again.

With Mark standing right there. Shouldn't he run fast when he sees his mother wooHoo?

I decide Jaya doesn't really need a secondary aspiration. But she gets what she can from the romance LAB.

Oh also, Mark chose romance as his secondary aspiration. Apparently I forgot that.

Trying that nursery rhyme again. Aimee loves it.

Huh, Mark was rejected for making out with Evlin. I didn't notice that. Aimee learned the nursery rhyme too.

She loves it. She keeps singing.

And she wants to sing more with her daddy.

She sings with Mommy instead.


Jaya smooth talks one of her spurned lovers, Benjamin Long.

Woah! Jaya's an elder. I totally was not prepared for that.

Evlin wants to change into her pjs. But she's in her pjs. They're ugly, but they're comfy.

Baby time!

Mark stresses out from downstairs.

The baby is born while Jaya makes out with her new conquest, Matthew.

Carson is born! He has his dad's skin and black hair, with his mom's brown eyes.

Jaya now pays attention to the baby.

Evlin and Mark with baby Carson

I send Jaya downstairs to get some new clothes. Then she goes and talks to a stranger about cheating.

And a makeover at home...white hair, but she looks so much better.

So time for Evlin to choose a seconardy aspiration. Please choose family, please choose family...

Grilled cheese. Fantastic.

The nursery

Jaya invites over Matthew cuz she has yet to wooHoo him...and look who walks by, elder Ahbjeet! Luckily, there were no incidents.

I said she was a happy baby...yet I got pics of every time she was crying.

Chance card for Mark...also noticed Matthew being totally grossed out by smelly Aimee.

Promotion for Mark!


Jaya is rejected for flirting! But she can combat that.

That improves things.

Another one down. Followed by a discussion of public woohoo.

The stinky baby wakes up unhappy.

Evlin finally takes care of the baby. I like how Aimee stays naked or a little bit after the bath. Like most people who don't spontaneously end up in clothes after bathing.

Aimee again wants to sing the nursery rhyme with Mark.

But she settles for dancing. She's gotta have a lot of music and dance enthusiasm.

And that's it for part 1! I should start Part 2 tonight, but I might just play more sims. Or go to sleep. Who knows what will happen next in my exciting Monday night?

Grilled cheese for poor Evlin - I hoped like you for her to get Family. Oh well, she'll be able to paint some interesting pictures now if that's any consolation!
I prefer Aimee's cuddly toy to that horrid doll in the last update - that thing is freaky.
Well done on baby Carson, and getting more woohoo for Jaya - who looked great after her makeover!

Thanks about the makeover...I was quite pleased with myself. Before that, she looked pale and sickly, but that's a problem that can be fixed by makeup.

And I love that Woodstock doll! I downloaded a bunch of teddy bear substitutes if you couldn't tell. More to come.

If one must necessarily pursue a life of Romance, Smooth Talk is urgently necessary. Especially if one does not have a compost bin. (They don't get kicked over...)

So I'm learning! I love learning all these new tricks.

Jaya is still a riot, even as an elder. How appropriate that she's flirting while her grandchild is being born, talking about cheating and public woohoo. Too funny!
Rachelreksims on May 5th, 2009 05:09 pm (UTC)
She really is focused! I am still not sure she'll reach 20 before she dies, but she is trying.

Aimée is cute, and looks like she's got some vocal resources (big mouth:))
Jaya´s make-over was great, but most fun was Mark being rejected for make-out, maybe Evlin wasn't in the mood :)
Rachelreksims on May 6th, 2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah I didn't see that at all until I looked in the memories! Maybe she was worried she'd end up pregnant yet again.

I generally put sprinklers over my flower beds, it keeps them alive pretty well -- you can use the moveobjects on cheat to place them over the bed borders then all you have to do is keep up with trimming the shrubs and caring for the veggies.

I never do the nursery rhyme thing maybe I will start now, that's just too cute about Aimee always wanting to sing it with Mark :) Jaya looks great with her elder makeover!

**skips off to read part 2**

Rachelreksims on May 6th, 2009 09:02 pm (UTC)
This is probably silly...but I never thought about sprinklers on flower beds. Veggie gardens yes, but not flowers. I'll have to do that.

And I was so surprised...whenever I turned away, Aimee would start waving her hands and singing. Also I didn't realized that she could earn charisma by singing.
