Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 14: Cormier Family  
 Previously on the Cormiers, Skylar played outside in the snow in her pjs as a toddler. She was not taken by the social worker. Then Skylar becomes a child. She studies and gets an A+. Ricky continues to date behind Elke's back in the quest of getting more wooHoos. Ricky also reaches top of career. At the end, Elke finds out she is pregnant yet again. Then in the beginning of Round 14, Elke caught Ricky flirting with Marjorie Rossiter. Her whole family saw it too. Thus here we start...

Ricky Cormier, romance/fortune sim, LTW: wooHoo 20 different sims, 2 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 2 lazy, 6 playful, 7 nice, OTH: arts & crafts
Elke Cormier, popularity/knowledge sim, LTW: become rock God, 10 neat, 10 outgoing, 9 active, 3 serious, 1 grouchy, OTH: fitness
Skylar Cormier, child, 2 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 10 active, 6 playful, and 1 grouchy

Oh and everyone is sick too.

Despite being furious with each other, Ricky and Elke still have a few laughs.

Elke's brother Devon has not gotten past the anger though.

Ricky kept wanting to invite his girlfriends over...so I let him. Elke is no longer real concerned with what Ricky does.

This was sorta inevitable.

And he still wants to invite over more of his girlfriends.

Yeah, go figure.

Elke's sister Natalya comes over to knock over the trash can.

Of course, these siblings don't understand that it is not only Ricky affected by this, but also their beloved sister.

Ricky goes on a date with Jill from the garden club.

Ricky wants to bring Jill home...I think that is not such a good idea, Ricky.

Back home, Elke starts her next novel. I don't quite understand the plot.

Baby time!

You have to be kidding.

The first baby is a boy. His name is Trevor. He has his Mom's brown hair and maybe his grandfather's blue eyes? I think Joe had blue eyes.

After Trevor is born, Ricky loses interest and goes to take a bubble bath.
The second baby is a girl, Kaylee. She has her dad's black hair and her mom's brown eyes.

Skylar has not yet met the twins...but likes Trevor much less than Kaylee.

I guess they've made up?


Skylar hangs out with her cousins Brianna and Brooks.

Ricky lectures baby Trevor, who wakes up Kaylee.

The car is finished! My first.

Promotion for Elke! Despite wooHoo-ing with Ricky yesterday, she's still angry about the cheating.

It's Skylar's birthday!

She has a pretty good-sized party.

She looks pretty good. And what do you want out of life Skylar?

Fortune...wouldn't have chosen that. She likes strong sims with custom hair who don't wear cologne.

Now the twins' birthday! First Kaylee.

Cute...but make over coming.

This is Ricky's reaction to his growing children.

Anyway, time for Trevor...

Candles blown out, party over, Trevor is still an infant. Which is how he stays for the time being.

Skylar helps Kaylee with her makeover. She'll need to buy new clothes too.

Good job Elke!

Elke is promoted...and here's a picture of Kaylee.

Ricky occasionally likes his children.

Skylar gets a job in her chosen field of medicine.

Another promotion for Elke! Oh and it looks like it's time for Trevor to grow up finally.

They just have a family party this time.

Trevor as a toddler.

I was trying to figure out what's wrong with Trevor's looks...I'll have to see if I have a better picture...but I have figured it out. I think he looks sorta like Chucky.

Now this is interesting...Ricky remembers Skylar growing up...but has no recollection of Kaylee or Trevor growing up. He remembers them being born, but that's it. Very weird. Also notice to the side, Elke talking with Ricky's latest girl, Jill.

A few pictures on the joy of twins.

The last one is kinda nice.

Kaylee doesn't make it. The nanny is then fired.

Elke seems excited to have met Jill. Aww, poor naive Elke.

Skylar brings home Sandy Bruty from school. Sandy Bruty is not a teen, but if she bends her knees, she is shorter, so maybe no one will noticed.

Done! What will happen to Elke and Ricky as Ricky pursues more women? We will see.

Ricky is such a tool, but I guess he really is good at what he does...
And here's hoping that Sandy going to high school is not the beginning of the neighborhood going up in flames. It is too much fun for that.

Thanks! I've seen a couple weird things like that...but nothing major...so far.

There's no end to the fun you can have with a Romance family father. Go, Ricky! :)

I love the beginning family shot with Elke pregnant and pissed off, lol. It's funny that Elke's family is more mad at Ricky than Elke seems to be. Ricky gets such a bad rep, he's a good guy in my hood thanks to Uni aspiration changes, heh. Skylar looks so much like her dad in the birthday headshot, it's scary. I'm anxious to see how the twins grow up, and a close up of Trevor.

You know, I don't think I've ever had a sim get angry on behalf of another sim. It's such a strange concept for me. I'll have to see if I can incite some anger of this nature sometime.

Twinmania, woohoo! If this were real life insted of simland, Ricky would probably have a lot more kids around the neighborhood.

I love Elke's hairstyle. Do you know where you got it off the top of your head? If not, don't go to any trouble digging it up; if your CC folder looks like mine, it would be impossible anyway. O.o

I got one place to look where I have half a chance of finding it...if I succeed, I'll let you know.
