Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 14: Rossiter 2 Family  
Previously on the Rossiter 2s, Arlo reached TOC. Graham continued to date Chloe and Duncan continued to date Tosha. Duncan and Tosha took serious advantage of inTeen. Gila retired and then reached her LTW of 50 dream dates. Both Gila and Arlo retired. Duncan, Graham, Chloe, and Tosha all become adults. And throughout the round, Jaya came over to play Don't Wake the Llama.

Graham, family sim, LTW: become education minister, 9 neat, 3 shy, 9 active, 9 playful, 1 nice, OTH: games
Arlo Rossiter, pleasure/knowledge sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice, OTH: tinkering
Gila Rossiter, pleasure/popularity sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 4 sloppy, 7 outgoing, 8 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports
Duncan, popularity sim, LTW: become a celebrity chef, 5 neat, 3 shy, 10 active, 6 playful, 10 nice, OTH: tinkering

The round begins with Duncan moving out. He had planned to move in with Uncle Woody, but Uncle Woody got married and had a baby, so that's less of a good option. He'll have to start on his own.

Graham is aspiration failure after the death of his Uncle Jarel and his grandmother Jaya.

Graham comes home with a promotion...then loses it.

A first wooHoo with his girlfriend Chloe cheers him up.

And a second wooHoo.

It's time.

"Chloe will you marry me?"

She says yes.

Chloe moves in that night...and brings money.

And she finds a new job in her chosen field immediately.

Chloe then goes shopping for wedding dresses. That girl is a go-getter.

Chloe changes into her casual clothes and updates her makeup a bit.

Chloe loves tinkering. She dreams of it.

Good job Chloe!

This girl is great!

Apparently Graham ran into a toddler on a hike. Umm...that's not good.

Chloe get a promotion!

Gila gives Arlo a gift. I forget what it is, but he was not impressed.

They are still very happy together.

I made a wall of Gila-Arlo photos. I like this. Remember them as teens? I didn't think they'd last.

Wedding time! It will be an inside wedding.

You may remember that Chloe is best friends with Aimee Hartford, Graham's first cousin.

What are the guests doing during this ceremony?


Chloe and Graham don't mind.

What's going on with Aimee and Michael? Notice Evlin looking on at her children.

After this, I believe Michael was asked to leave...both bride and groom are closer to Aimee.

I didn't even know they had issues.

Gila sees her pregnant brother Mark.

The cake.

Pink suits for Duncan and Arlo.

I like when guests actually eat the cake.

Roof raiser!

When returning from the honeymoon.

And lastly for the round, Graham chooses knowledge secondary. Which doesn't seem very appropriate for him. But okay.

"Taking advantage of InTeen" - I think I have just discovered a useful phrase. ^_^

And I agree, Chloe is a great addition to the family!

That is useful...I'll have to incorporate it into future entries.

I love when you marry someone in, and they end up being super useful and lucky like that. It always feels like your choice has been validated or something.

Also, lmao, I love that shot of Graham and Chloe in the very far distance with a sea of smustlers in front of them! Silly wedding guests.

Those sims don't stop smustling for anything!

Chloe cleans up nice, and she's loaded (what a nice benefit for the house!). I love the wall-o-photobooth shots, they really look nice, I enjoy when people commemorate the generations living in a household, I wish I would have had the foresight in my hood to do it before my Gen 1 adults died. I laughed out loud at the smustle during the wedding ceremony, classic silly sims.

Usually I forget about the photobooth by the time they are elders...so I had to make a special trip to complete the set.

I like Chloe very much, she's been married into a lot of my families in different incarnations.
Lovely wedding!

I think this is where I left off! Thus begins the official phase of me catching up with your simmies!

First, I LOVE it when you marry in sims, and they're all lovely and bring in loads of money and are productive right away. I think it's funny she went from military to crime, though, ha.

Indoor weddings are apparently the only way to go in winter...otherwise everyone is in their stupid winter gear.

And finally... Gila and Arlo, awww. I love the picture wall; so cute!

Agreed about the indoor wedding...but I have to remember to turn off the music before the ceremony!
