Everdale Prosperity Round 15 Cormier Family  
Previously on the Cormiers, twins Trevor and Kaylee were born. Elke and Ricky began to make up after his previous cheating incident. Skylar grew into a fortune teen. The twins became terrible toddlers.  Toddlers pretty much took over the rest of the round.

Trevor Cormier, toddler sim, 2 sloppy, 10 outgoing, 10 active, 10 playful, 2 grouchy
Skylar Cormier, fortune teen, LTW: become chief of staff, 2 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 9 active, 6 playful, 1 grouchy, OTH: sports
Ricky Cormier, romance/fortune sim, LTW: wooHoo 20 different sims, 2 sloppy, 8 outgoing, 2 lazy, 6 playful, 7 nice, OTH: arts & crafts
Kaylee Cormier, toddler sim, 10 neat, 8 outgoing, 5 active, 3 serious, 7 nice
Elke Cormier, popularity/knowledge sim, LTW: become rock God, 10 neat, 10 outgoing, 9 active, 3 serious, 1 grouchy, OTH: fitness

An observation about these kids...Skylar has her mom's brown eyes, Kaylee has her dad's green eyes (I said brown last time, I was mistaken), and Trevor has his Grandpa Joe's blue eyes. I love that.

Anyway, moving on...
I promised you a better picture of Trevor...this is not fabulous, but decent. Maybe it's the hair that makes him look like Chucky.

The twins were deeply affected by the death of their grandmother, Auralee.

Life in the Cormier family...Ricky plays piano, Skylar dances, Kaylee screams about her awful life.

Nice job, Ricky. Flirting with some random woman in front of your son. Luckily, he doesn't seem to care.

Ricky makes it up to Trevor by helping him walk and potty training him.

Elke helps Kaylee start walking.

And she finishes up the job with Trevor.

Dancing baby!

Holding a baby and reading a book! Let's say she's telling the baby a story on their walk to bed.

Kaylee looks really frightened of the tub. That's the same look my dog gives me.

Simultaneous teaching to talk.

Kaylee wakes up Trevor.

Skylar has the good fortune of not being able to hear the twins from her room...and sleeps soundly, dreaming of Gila???

Ricky likes his kids.

Maybe he's changing his ways? Sandy is rejected.

Birthday party time! Lotso family is invited, and a few friends.

Kaylee's birthday first.

She totally looks like her dad.

Then she promptly decides there will be no more smustle.

Jules and Zeb keep smustling on.

Brianna enjoys Trevor's last minutes as a toddler.

Trevor jumps into childhood.

Kaylee and Trevor are already good friends. And they have the same nose.

It's a good party.

Kaylee has JUST become a child...and she already has reached 6 mechanical? Dang.

Ricky and Elke badly need some alone time, so they leave Skylar with the twins and head downtown. Not on a date, just to hang out...

Ricky grabs Jill and heads to the photo booth. Elke has wandered elsewhere to see what a bar is. Will she notice?

She noticed.

She's not happy. She insists they go home immediately.

Elke thought about kicking him out, but realized they had a headmaster visit that night and she had to leave for work right before...so she'd just have to wait 'til later.

Ricky assumes that means they've made up. They have not.

Ricky is unhappy.

Skylar's reaction to being told to hug her mother.

 Then Skylar has a bad day at work.

She comes home with a promotion anyway. The headmaster has just arrived. Trevor does the greeting.

Kaylee plays the piano to impress the headmaster.

Then she has dinner with the headmaster.

Skylar finally gets changed and goes to see the headmaster. They get along great.

Elke has come home reaching top of career and her LTW! Kaylee comes to tell her the good news about private school.

Ricky leaves for work soon after.

Oh no!

This is a wacky wacky day. Ricky cheats on Elke, the kids get into private school, Elke reaches TOC, Ricky was fired. 

Elke may not like Ricky so much...but she totally appreciates his piano skills.

Ricky is so upset about the job, he can't sleep.

He goes and tucks in Trevor. Awww.

The next day, Elke helps Kaylee with her homework.

Followed by treasure.

Then Elke's brother Bishop steals their newspaper. Why? I don't know.

Skyler takes the twins on a shopping trip.


While the girls try on clothes, Trevor uses his 10 outgoing points to make friends and start a water balloon fight. Then Skylar has her own fun with Kaylee.

Umm...Skylar? You're a little young for a booty call.

Sorry to ruin your fun.

Ricky wants to apologize.

It goes well...but Elke is not ready for romance quite yet.

Uhh, Trevor? Kaylee wants to take a bath.

I was really anticipating a huge blowout with Elke and Ricky...but then the headmaster visit, then work schedule, etc etc...by the time it was convenient, they were sorta okay with each other. Granted, Ricky still has a ways to go to meet his LTW.

Ricky deserved to lose his job! And his newspaper too, but that is a bit inconvenient since it also belongs to Elke! Not a very smart move there, Bishop...

The small ones look pretty good as kids, I'd say.

Those silly sims don't realize that more than one person is affected by their actions.

Haha, what an eventful round! It's more fun with some drama.
Ricky: "Hey let's go downtown to make up" "O hello, sexy, let's hop into the photobooth!" "Oops, forgot my wife was here! :D

Yeah that was just messed up.

Holy cow, this was a crazy round. Even though I don't condone spousal cheating, even in simlandia, I'm glad Ricky and Elke seemed to tolerate each other. I've never had a sim autonomously apologize to another sim before, though; I'd love to see that in my game. I always have to MAKE them apologize like the naughty children they are. :p Congrats on all the achievements, though it's a bummer about Ricky's job. I'm sure he'll shoot back up the ladder when it comes around in the newspaper/computer rotation again.

I keep thinking they'll split up and I wait for the "poking" to begin before I do it...and it never does. Maybe Elke knew what she was getting into when she married him?

oy Ricky, Karma is a bitch isn't it. I really wish Elke would make him shape up or ship out... I'm so glad I changed my version of Ricky to Family in college, he's so much more functional (but less entertaining) that way. The kids are cute even though they all inherited Ricky's unfortunate nose.
Rachelreksims on October 9th, 2010 03:56 pm (UTC)
I keep wanting to make Elke kick him out, and somehow it never quite happens. They keep getting interrupted, then they make up. And it is unfortunate about the nose, but I'm glad one of the three (Kaylee) is a nice sim at least!
