Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 12: The Hartford Family Part 1

Previously on the Hartfords, Jaya continued to work toward 30 loves and was caught cheating several times. Mark reached the top of the education career. Aimee became a teen and questioned her sexuality. Aimee and Carson got into private school, thanks to Jaya flirting with the headmaster. Carson came home cheering about his A+...every day. Maxwell became a toddler and spent time with his Grandma Jaya teaching him skills. Michael, the family bad apple, was born. At the end of the round, Michael became a toddler, Max became a child, and Carson became a teen.

Carson, teen family sim, LTW: become education minister, 10 neat, 2 shy, 10 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports
Jaya, romance sim, LTW: to woohoo 20 sims have 20 simultaneous lovers*, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice, OTH: tinkering
Michael, toddler, ???
Evlin: pleasure/grilled cheese sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 4 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 6 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: music & dance
Maxwell, child, 10 neat, 2 shy, 10 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: science
Mark: family/romance sim, LTW: marry off 6 children, 9 neat, 2 shy, 6 active, 3 serious, 5 nice, OTH: science
Aimee, teen popularity sim, LTW: become general, 9 neat, 3 shy, 10 active, 10 playful, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports

*I thought Jaya has 20 simultaneous loves. Maybe she needs to be friends with them?

Jaya is asking out Brandon. I've been avoiding that as Brandon was at one point involved with Gila, Jaya's daughter, and I thought that was sorta icky. But we need to up the number of loves, so it will happen.

During the date, Brandon wants to marry Gila. Fantastic.

Hmm...these are the people at the park who Gila knows...three loves...and GILA! AHHHHH!

Oh look, there she is, playing darts.

Wow, and Gila is in love with Komei. This is getting very complicated. We haven't even mentioned Gila's husband Arlo. Luckily, he is not at the park.

Jaya and Brandon's date proceeds well anyway.

Uh oh. Why is Brandon losing a heart?

Oh...he caught Gila cheating.

This is gonna be a mess.

I think Gila found out about Brandon and Jaya too.

Awww...Jaya and Gila are no longer friends! And they were so close!

I may have to put the quest for 30 loves on hold so that Jaya can repair her relationship with her daughter.

Also, it's sorta weird having an elder with an offspring who is an elder.

Oh Brandon's in love with Jaya. Fantastic.

Jaya apologizes. Gila accepts her apology. But does she mean it? While this is going on, Jaya falls in love with Brandon.

Jaya tries given Gila a gift. She has plenty of date bouquets.

Gila rejects the gift. There's more work to do.

What a sad face!

Jaya has a 100/100 relationship with Gila...yet they're not friends.

Back at home...

Five of the family are sick. Great.

Gila is over...and Jaya greets her without my direction. That is a pretty goofy wave.

I think all is forgiven.

Jaya picks family as a secondary aspiration. That's a good one for her. She's a good grandma.

A few picks of other family members...

Michael looks so serious with the bunny head.

Carson and Max bond while playing chess.

Max and Woodstock

Mark and Evlin try for another dream date. Evlin only wants to do things that involve leaving the house. Tough luck.

Mark is not impressed by Evlin's discussion of grilled cheese.

A dream date, but Mark still fears that Meadow is stinky.

A genie lamp! I'll have to think aboutg how to use this.

Gila, still visiting, brings Michael to bed.

Then she plays chess with her niece, Aimee.

Their daily relationship shot up. They barely knew each other before.

Jaya really is a good grandma. She and little Michael are totally bonded.

Carson takes a job in the education track.

Carson doesn't do much interesting. But he's good to his little brother.

Max shows an interest in his little brother too.

Jaya has another date. I think this is Remington. But there's Woody...

Poor Woody looks so upset.

Luckily, Jaya remains in love, and that's what counts.

I love the angry faces. Jaya pays him off, so Woody will let her continue the date in peace.

Or not.

It's very rare that I see them cry when Jaya breaks their heart. Usually they go straight for the slapping.

Oh there's the slapping.

Jaya does make some progress with Remington on this date...but she'll need another date to seal the deal. Maybe the next date will be at home.

In the last round, Carson came home every day cheering about his A+. And apparently he is still doing it. We don't care any more!

Evlin successfully teaches Michael to talk.

Mark teaches Michael the nursery rhyme.

I love the nursery rhyme. I think it's totally cute.

And with this, Michael has learned all his toddler skills! That rarely happens in my game.

Back to Jaya and Remington...


Playing in the tub is fine, Aimee...except when someone needs the tub for bathing.

Oh did I mention that Evlin is pregnant again?

This was inevitable.

Jaya makes a wish...I forget what she wished for. I think she wished for a longer life so she'd have more time to acquire her 30 loves.

Evlin ignores Max's cheering cuz she's too busy telling a dirty joke to Ricky Cormier.

Plus, Max got an A+ yesterday. Why do these boys think they deserve applause every day?
And I'll end there...Part 2 yet to come...so many people, so many pictures.
