Everdale Prosperity Round 12: The Carr 1 Family  
And we're back! Round 12 begins. I did install inTeenimator. Still not sure what I think about it, but it will be in effect 'til the end of the round anyway.

Previously on the Carrs, Stuart became a teen and soon after was going steady with Marsha. Jake was eventually persuaded by Brittany's advances and they became romantically involved. Bishop and Brittany became enemies. Justine had a rough time with homework and passing out and accidents, and really hadn't bonded with anyone in the family but her brother Zeb, who moved out in Round 10. She grew into a teen, then got scared by two ghosts that night, then she lost her job. Connor and Devon became toddlers and later children.  Justine, Connor, and Devon got into private school. Auralee became an elder. She and Joe had some romance between parenting and working toward promotions.

That's enough, huh? Moving on to Round 12...

(It's getting longer and longer to do my intro stats in this family.)

Want to beat one of your youngest children at a game, Auralee? My, aren't we competitive.

And as long as we're looking at wants, the relationship between Bishop and Brittany has seriously deteriorated.

Jake, the popularity sim, decides to throw a party on Sunday afternoon. He invites a bunch of teens and former teens.

Devon is not up for socializing and instead focuses on painting.

Brittany thinks Ricky is totally hot...but Ricky is more interested in talking to Justine. Also, remember that Ricky is now married to one of the elder Carr children, Elke.

Brittany is really not a pleasant girl. This is her expression when Jake doesn't talk to her cuz he's busy talking to his little brother.

Party activities


Devon finishes his painting during the party. He hangs it in the bedroom he shares with Connor.

Stuart and Justine have a typical sibling relationship.

Speaking of, Stuart snuck out that night with his girlfriend Marsha.

Luckily his parents didn't notice at least.

Woo! Good job, Auralee!

Justine tracks snow in the house. Then she goes off to work in her bathing suit. She looks confused as to why she has to wear a bathing suit to work in the middle of winter. Can't she at least wear a coat?

Devon and Connor's first day of school
(I keep wanting to say Stuart and Bishop...they're little clones.)

Stuart takes full advantage of the snow.

Promotions for both Justine and Auralee! Justine has reached the top of the teen career track in oceanography.

Devon greets his Mom when she gets home from work.

Oh well.

Justine teaches Devon to study, while Bishop teachers Connor to study. It's a good thing there are teen kids in this house to help with this stuff. What's Auralee up to anyway?

She's writing a novel about a magic bowl of soup that changes rainy days to sunny days.

More noogie-ing.

Oh well.

I noticed that Jake has a reasonable relationship with his niece Charlotte. I didn't even realize they'd met. He has no relationship with his older nephew Aaron.

Stuart is really the worst of them. Here, he's getting his friend Orlando.

Second day of school: both the twins come home with A+'s. That was super fast.

Everyone loses hobby enthusiasm at work. Just like real life.

Jake asks Brittany on a date. Awww, they're in love.

First kiss. Very cute.

Followed by some Myshuno.

A few random smustle pics...I love how Devon looks like a mini-Stuart, right down to the clothes.

You may remember that Bishop and Marjorie discovered a mutual interest in Marjorie's last round. So Bishop asked her out. Unfortunately, it musta been late cuz she left immediately.

So Bishop enters a dance contest.

Tryphosa wins...are these things fixed?

Jake gets into the cuisine hobby lot.

Brittany comes by later to thank Jake for the date. This girl is a keeper.

Jake, of his own deciding, went and tucked in each of the twins.

Time for another party.

Orlando and Marjorie are best friends.

Woo! I did good.

Anyway, it is time for Bishop to grow up.

The clothes need to go.

Bishop is promoted. And he promotes his best friend Orlando.

Zeb plays video games with his two youngest brothers.

Justine goes to the mini-graveyard and mourns her grandmother.

She's less sad about the loss of her father.

But he did leave her money! So that was good.

Then she goes to bed and has a dream about Randy London.

Justine and Devon are best friends. That's good. Justine needs more friends among her siblings.

A nice picture of Auralee and Joe. They're cute. But not so interesting to me these days.

Justine gets promoted to the top of the oceanography track AGAIN. She was not demoted in between these promotions.

Bishop has some mechanic skills, but things don't go well when he tries.

I love the worrying brothers.

Devon is so relieved that his older brother is okay.

Soon after this, before he even washes his face, Bishop moves out. Bye Bishop!

Efrat is back to visit.


Auralee finishes her book...and it goes well!

She then discusses the book with Stuart. He lasts about 15 minutes before he gets bored and walks away.

Joe maxes body skill.

BOO! She got dressed first though.

And that's it. In the next round, Bishop will be in his own house. And maybe one day Joe and Auralee will complete their jobs.

Attack of the clones! The picture of Devon and Stuart in similar clothes made me grin like a maniac. They really are amazingly similar.

Man, that Efrat is reeeaaaallly holding on, isn't he?

That pic of Devon and Stu is just too funny. If I were Justine I wouldn't be very sad about Efrat either seeing as he's scared her so much. I know I've said it before, but I can't believe how well you do with parties. I guess my simmies are just lame. I can't handle that many people in the house at the same time.

Food and smustle are always big hits!

And I think Justine should not be sad about Efrat since he let her be taken away by the social worker!

Great round. It's always fun to read about all your boys that look like clones of each other
