Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 12: The Carr 2 Family  
Previously on the Carr 2s, Zeb grew into an adult, got engaged to his high school girlfriend, Meadow Thayer, and moved into his own home.

Zeb Carr, teen, family/grilled cheese sim, LTW: marry off 6 children, 5 neat, 8 outgoing, 6 active, 3, serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: music & dance

Zeb's mother suddenly decided a round or so ago that she didn't like him any more. Due to that, she won't visit.

Here's Zeb's modest house. Basically it's a studio apartment...except a house.

Since Zeb's mom won't come visit, he goes out with his friend Brittany. They have a lovely conversation about grilled cheese. Then he tries to kiss her. Luckily, he doesn't do it.

Zeb invites Meadow over. She is still angry about Logan cheating on her. Oh the irony. Zeb invites her to move in. Then she decides to tell him she's super poor. Great.

Neither of them look especially happy.

Meadow wants to be education minister. We can work with that.

Meadow tries on some wedding dresses. Which will she choose? I will tell you that after seeing these pictures, she would have chosen a different one than she actually chose.


Oh goodness.

Yup, Meadow is gay. Who knew?

Meadow had a rough shopping trip.

When Meadow wakes up, it's wedding time! Lotso Carr-Gables around, including Auralee, who doesn't even like Zeb.

Bishop still has the charred face. And we don't get to his house until the Round 13. Maybe I"ll sneak in and give him a shower in advance. Also, Brittany (at left) always is mad about something.

Time for the ceremony...

Auralee stayed inside for the ceremony.

The ceremony is followed by water balloon fights. From back to front, Aaron Gable, Stuart Carr, Bishop Carr, and Justine Carr.

Cake stuffing

Meadow bonds over cake with Brittany Parker, Elke Cormier, sister of the groom, (who is in her woulda been wedding dress had she not popped minutes before the ceremony), and Aaron Gable, nephew of the groom.


Roof raiser! Woo!

Meadow keeps smustling on.

To the limo!

They come home after the honemoon.

Followed by a meal of grilled cheese.

There goes the grilled cheese.

Zeb dreams of his new niece Skylar.


I didn't get a picture of Zeb's result here. But you can guess what it is...

Oh well.

I think Meadow won't be working much longer.

Zeb goes shopping and is filled with desire to make a grilled cheese sandwich for Meadow.

He invited his Dad Joe to come with him. They play a little before he gets to serious shopping.

Hmm, what to buy, what to buy.


Meadow and Zeb talk about the coming baby over grilled cheese for breakfast.

Zeb calls his Mom Auralee to tell her the good news. She won't talk to him.

He tries inviting over the whole family.

Meadow is able to make some headway with Auralee.

Woo! Jazzercise!

Promotion...also Zeb so has Auralee's face.

Baby time!

Twins! That'll move things along for them.

It's a boy, his name is Brooks.

Zeb kept wandering off during all of this. I kept trying to encourage him to stay around, but he didn't want to. Seriously, is he a family sim? Shouldn't he want to pick up that baby on the ground?

Kirtland is born.

Both boys have brown hair and blue eyes, so thankfully their skin colors are different.

Zeb goes to clean up before seeing the new babies.

Then he takes some time to critique my choice of crib.

Finally he picks up Brooks.

They're still poor. So I wall off the bedroom so Zeb and Meadow can sleep with screaming babies. The babies have cribs in the kitchen/dining room/living room.

The nanny is quickly called just as both babies need to be changed.

How will Zeb and Meadow do in their tiny house with two babies? We'll find out next round!

Hopefully now the other boys (and girls) will leave Meadow alone, finally!

Do sims really understand when another sim is married?

Yes, at least without ACR. Not sure with, I think it depends on the settings.

Humble beginnings indeed. And at last Meadow made it into the story for real!

Yay Meadow! I have yet to see her in my hood at all even though I know she's there. What's Auralee's problem with Zeb? Did I miss something in a previous round? Another question -- why is your Brittany Parker's hair dark -- mine is definitely a red-head...? Congrats on the twins too bad you're still getting tons of boys though, hopefully you can keep your sanity with them in such a small house. Zeb and Meadow need to make some cash soon if they want to raise 6 kids + a spare (just in case right?).

I have no idea why Auralee doesn't like Zeb...it started last round, but not for any reason. Also, I was wondering about that too! Brittany had red hair for childhood, was a little darker as a teen, and now is brown bordering on black.

Wow, I wonder if Meadow's gender preference is consistent through all the games or if it changes from game to game. I never noticed mine eyeing up the local ladies, but maybe now I'll be paying closer attention....

I tend to randomize things through ACR every now and again. Although I'm learning that when it says it wont affect existing crushes, it means they will still have crushes on people...but not necessarily like that gender any more! I'll have to be more careful.
