Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 11: Carr Family Part 1  
 Previously on the Carr Family,Bishop, Jake, and Stuart were accepted to private school. Justine was re-adopted into the family, so all the triplets have now been returned.  Joe became an elder and Jake became a teen. Auralee still dreamed of her first husband, Efrat, even as his ghost still continued to haunt the house. Auralee gave birth to twins, Connor and Devon. She now has nine children. Can't get the tenth until someone moves out.

Jake Carr, teen, popularity sim, LTW:  become the law,  7 neat, 4 shy, 1 grouchy, 8 playful, 5 nice, OTH: cuisine
Auralee Carr, adult, family/knowledge sim, LTW: marry off 6 children, 4 sloppy, 7 outgoing, 8 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: music & dance
Connor Carr, baby
Joe Carr, adult, fortune/pleasure sim, LTW: reach the top of the adventurer career, 6 neat, 5 outgoing, 8 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports

I forgot I had downloaded clothes for babies...it sorta makes me like babies more.

Good job Jake!

I forgot to get rid of the cursor when I got the new computer, so you'll see it for the next few houses.

Typical teen behavior in Everdale.

Birthday party time! Also, an anniversary for Joe and Auralee.

These parties tend to be pretty full. There are 8 people in this house to begin with.

Interesting...Jake likes Connor much more than Devon. I can't even tell them apart.

Stuart's birthday!

Wow, that Marsha can jump.

Also I like how they are in a perfect semi-circle. They usually don't organize so well.

Stuart as a teen...he chooses a life of popularity. He is turned on by unemployed red-heads. He does not like people who are too far ahead in their careers. Hmmm.

Stuart decided to grow up Marsha with him.

Interesting...Joe is BFFs with Zeb, but not friends with him. Also, he likes the headmaster better than Justine, Connor, Devon, and Jake.

Jake actually makes some effort for those babies...even Devon whom he hates.

I've never seen this sitting on the floor and playing video games. That's kinda cool.

Great party...but there are two more birthdays to go.

Devon grows up!

And Connor grows up.

I love when Auralee rocks out.

One of the babies tries to steal the bottle from the twin downstairs. Sorry, baby.

Connor has Bishop's hair. Bishop was an awfully cute toddler, but didn't grow up as cute. Somehow, I'm not feeling as cute with Connor, but looking back, I don't see much difference.

Bishop finds a job in his chosen career, so he switches out of dance.

The house is really nuts, so I hire a maid. It's sorta ashame since some of these sims think cleaning is fun. But it's too much for me to keep up with.

Jake brings home Brittany, but strongly rejects her flirtation.

And then this is how he says goodbye to her.

Oh well.

Auralee and Connor are best friends.

Justine wet the bed.

Poor girl. She's really had a hard time adjusting to her new/old home. Her only good friend is Zeb, her birth brother who no longer lives here.

Then Joe pees on the floor. It's a big night for accidents.

Poor Justine.

Her brothers, particularly Jake, worry about her. Jake is growing on me these days.

Promotion for Auralee!

Connor's tired. Joe teaches Devon to walk.

After sleeping on the floor, Justine is not in good shape. So I do something I've never done...I let her stay home from school. Of course, I didn't realize one of her fears was missing the bus. Oops.

Justine never learned to study since returning so she asks Auralee for help. Also I called the nanny so Auralee could help Justine, Joe could work on his skills, and the nanny could take care of the twins.


Stuart brings home his good friend Marsha and they fall instantly in love.

Hey Bishop...watch yourself. Also, Bishop clone Connor harasses Stuart for attention.

Damn, Bishop is sick. And it's birthday party time again.

Justine is going to get out of her miserable childhood!

Justine as a teen...it's shocking to Elke.

Justine chooses money...wouldn't have been my choice for her. She likes redheads and brunettes, and is turned off by stink.

Meanwhile, in the backyard...

Stuart and Marsha's first kiss

Marsha agrees to go steady with Stuart and then he gives her the thumbs up.

The party ends with the boys (Jake, Orlando, and Zeb) playing video games.

Yay Bishop!

And then he is promoted to the top of the adventurer track.

Justine can't find a career in her desired career, so she takes a job in dance.

Awww, Conor is cute. Sorry about the cursor.

Still pretty cute. Maybe it's just the hair.

And that's it for Part 1. More toddlers and other stuff to come.

Yes! Marsha is growing up! I can certainly see why the boys would swarm her, she is my favorite wife among the premade sims. (Also, this should cut down on her calling everyone all the time...)

I've never had her as a grown up, but I figure she'll get into one family or another soon. Glad to know you like her.

those toddler clothes are adorable. And I agree about the curly hair and how it makes male toddlers so much cuter! I really admire the way you do parties, every time I attempt them they are usually a disaster. I can see why Jake resents his younger siblings since he was neglected as a child but it's good that he's making effort with the twins. I hope Justine has a better teenager-hood than childhood!

I hope Auralee will still be young enough to have a 10th child when one of the others move out! In other cases, there is always adoption...

Yeah adoption it will be. I'm looking forward to getting the LAST kid into this family.
