Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 13: The Hartford Family Part 1  
Previously on the Hartfords, Gila caught her mother, Jaya, on a date with her old boyfriend (and still love), Brandon. Jaya had to make a lot of effort to regain Gila's trust and friendship. She also managed to fall in love with Brandon, to help her on her quest for 30 simultaneous loves. (She ended the round with 27.) Jaya goes on more dates and is caught cheating repeatedly. When not seeking loves, Jaya bonds with her grandson, Michael, the bad apple. She also earned a silver gardening badge. Michael grows up to a child and starts sleeping odd hours. Maxwell came home every day, cheering about his A+. Alaina is born. Aimee becomes friends with her Aunt Gila and her cousin Duncan. Sickness comes and goes throughout the house.

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

Jaya wants another grandhild. Mark needs another child to have a hope of meeting his LTW. Unfortunately, the house is full. There will be no more children until Aimee grows up and moves out...or Jaya dies.

The sickness is still around.

Evlin and Alaina are best friends.

Good job, Mark!

Michael gets home from school and goes directly to bed.

Carson helps baby sister Alaina grow into a toddler.

Alaina is a well-balanced kid, very outgoing.

Headmaster time again.

There's a lot going on during this visit.

As usual Jaya in for the close...Max and Mike get into private school.

Then Jaya gets back to her date with Logan...she needs loves, he needs dream dates, it's a good match.

Michael is a sensitive child.

Aimee offers to help Michael with his homework. He refuses.

So Aimee does his homework while Michael plays with toys.

Meanwhile, everyone loves Alaina.


Jaya's still picking up new loves.

Carson needs a girlfriend. So he calls the matchmaker and gets the nature woman.

Unfortunately, the nature woman is more interested in Aimee.

Yeah, don't hug me. We're not that close.

Evlin finishes teaching Alaina to walk.

She's a cutie.

Mark falls in love with his pregnant friend...Stella? Is that her name? Good job there, family sim.

While I wasn't looking, Maxwell became a teen. It's easy to lose track of things with eight people in the house. Anyway, he chooses fortune.

Aimee has a thing for the vampire that comes and hangs out in the house uninvited.

Michael stood there watching them for a long, long time.

Jaya is in love with Logan...another one down.


Carson is good to his little sister.

Jaya teaches Alaina to talk. They're so sweet when they're small.

Michael on the other hand has crashed out on the couch, is just skin and bones cuz he's starving, and he's losing enthusiasm for music and dance.

The delivery guy makes it just in time.

Mervyn, Jaya's next conquest.


Michael goes to sleep in his Grandma's bed in the middle of the day...again.

Ooo, Carson has the hots for Tosha. Sadly, Carson...she's dating your cousin.

Aimee entertains Tosha while Carson goes to get Alaina.

Then Tosha becomes parent to Alaina, holding her and feeding her.

After that one interaction with Alaina, Aimee wants to play with her more. Aww.

More toddler spam

Mark and Evlin go on dates from time to time...I still don't know how I'll get Evlin up to 50. But Mark still fears Meadow is stinky on his dates with Evlin.

Carson applies for garden club membership and gets in! Sadly Carson, I don't think the yard is big enough for a perfect score.

Alaina is learning the nursery rhyme and Michael is starving again.

Michael is not doing well.

Suck it up, kid. Time for school.

Awww. Also, notice Michael in bed. This is after school.

Alaina sings the nursery rhyme with Jaya. Jaya is a fantastic grandmother.

Jaya is finally in love with the gardener.

Oh what's that 30,000??? It's Jaya's impossible want! She has 30 loves at once!!!

I rock.

Sealing the deal.

Is that the end of the round? No! More to come in Part 2.

Wait, is Jaya having 30 simultaneous loves without having 20 simultaneous loves? *confused*

Anyway, what a wonderful toddler! I hope she does not get taken by the social worker along with Bad Apple. It was a near miss if you got the skin and bones warning.

pfft, skin and bones warning is nothing. If you get bad grades warning it's for real. Because it's so much more important to get good grades than food (?!)

Yes...30 simultaneous loves without 20. Sounds like a bug to me. Or weird math.

I love that Mark still is obsessed with Meadow's stinkyness!
And Jaya´s hottub date has the most hideous hairdo ever!
Rachelreksims on November 29th, 2009 09:42 pm (UTC)
No kidding re: the hairdo! He had a normal hairdo when he was a teen. I kinda wanna get him into a family just to fix his hair.

Yay, Jaya! I can't wait to reach this point with Vinnie! At first, I used to think Romance sims were kind of annoying, but now I am starting to find them entertaining.

Alaina is quite the little princess isn't she? Congrats on the 30 loves IW that's not an easy one, especially in such a crowded house. I had a hard time achieving that one with Tia and she lives alone!

Once I got the 20 wooHoos, I had to keep going! But it is sorta nuts there. Not sure how I made that work.
