Previously, the adults went on vacation and left Velma in care of the triplets. Despite this, they all survived infancy and aged into adorable toddlers.
Aw, such a cute picture. The four younger kids playing together.
The family is off to the festival again; allowing the teenager to drive, as you do.
I had to get a new greeting card, even though the season hasn’t changed yet.
Since the family has changed so much.
Roxie, Velma and Cosette bob for apples.
Brillo wanted to get her face painted, but it failed; she’s very upset about it.
Seaweed…is now a ghost?
Oh, right. He went to the haunted house. If the family wasn’t full already, I might have tried for a ghost child while he’s like this *makes note for future generation*
Velma finally put out her prom stuff; the poses with a partner are always so much better than the alone ones.
Kristi had her baby! Seaweed and Brillo have their first grandchild. And they’re not even elders yet, lol.
The Rourke and Laserkatt families are to be combined.
It’s a triple birthday party!
But before the party starts, Velma continues to paint weird paintings; I like this one, we’re keeping it. (photobomb by Billy)
Jenn is one of the first guests to arrive…and she heartfarts Seaweed as she comes in. Lol, these simselves love the active family.
These two cuties are Vernon Verona (werewolf in the hat) and Jereme Bradford (blue undies – though I think that’s his swimsuit). Roxie has a wish to befriend a werewolf, so we’re trying with Vernon.
As always, Sean ignores the other party guests in favour of the dancefloor.
Also invited was Ivory Mist, Jenn’s avatar sim. I’m guessing she’s Evil.
This made me laugh, sim!Jenn talking to her own creation. And Sammy is Shy.
For once, all three toddlers are being taken to their cakes by different people…yet I still can’t get them in sync.
Mostly only the family cheer for the babies. Sean is still dancing.
Kelly is first.
I went for a girly indoors look for her, since she hates the outdoors. (lol, and I just realised as I was editing the photos that I switched around her blue flowers for Flynn’s red ones)
Her CAS shot; she has Seaweed’s nose, and the rest is Brillo.
Flynn goes next.
She has a comfy don’t-care look, to suit the loner bookworm.
She has the Rourke eye shape (passed down all the way from Phoenix, gen 1 spouse!) and everything else is Brillo.
Billy is last.
Mr Grumpy Daredevil has… well, shorts and sneakers, like a typical boy.
He looks very similar to Flynn, with the Rourke eyes and the rest Brillo. Though his mouth is kind of strange, not from either of his parents.
Oh, and by the way, all three kids were given Rebellious as their child traits, as per the rules.
Kristi couldn’t contain her excitement.
Flynn announces her birthday to Jereme.
They begin playing tag; need to start grooming the potential spouses from childhood, these days.
The triplets get bunkbeds and a rocking horse! If I remember, I may close in the room…eventually.
Brillo wished to give Billy a gift, so here we go. I’m on a mission to have the parents befriend all their children before they get to YA; some of this has already been completed, due to the toddler training. It’s so much easier to befriend sims as toddlers!
Along that vein, Kelly announces her birthday to her father.
Since Jereme had to go home soon after the party, Roxie and Flynn get to socialising. Who needs outside friends when there are so many sims in the house?
Oops, obviously Brillo was distracted after the epic party. I think this is the first time she’s been jailed.
Janel and Quinton had a shotgun marriage! Remember, they have a child on the way.
Hai Fiyero! I love that Kelly thought about ghosts right then; she actually also wished to see a ghost, so it was fulfilled easily.
Somehow our lot spawned a bird…Velma went out to catch it. Predictably, she then rolled the Zoologist LTW (collect 20 minor pets), but we didn’t keep that.
I let her keep it, because the family has never had a pet. She named it… Beany! (I’m embarrassed that I had to re-open the game to find out his name) But it’s in honor of this Backwards ISBI with Mr Bean as founder!
Roxie invited Vernon over, since she has now also wished to befriend him. And if I’d seen she was playing with costumes, I would have taken some pics, damn.
Meanwhile, Velma is still alternating painting with playing on the trampoline.
Jenn is apparently set on becoming part of the Rourke family.
Two seconds later, I got this popup; they’re already going steady.
Flynn (and Kelly out of shot) joined an epic game of tag with Roxie and Vernon. The four of them played late into the night, and it only ended when Vernon was forced to leave by curfew.
Lols, it’s been a while since I saw Velma’s insane trait.
Her rebellious trait is the strongest of all 5 kids; here she’s kicking the gnome.
Eponine died 😦 This just proves how long Cosette has been around; she was halfway to teen before Eponine and Marius were born (that’s about 14 days older).
Cosette is distraught about her younger sister.
Brillo maxed her athletic skill!
Velma keeps skipping school, and currently has a D. Cosette is not impressed.
Poor insane baby got a timeout. And chose to do it half in front of the door.
Can’t remember why this picture is here…maybe to show off the cute outerwear of the kids.
Also, it’s Roxie’s bday!
She gets her own Rebellious trait, since I forgot at her child birthday.
Zomg, and she’s not a complete Brillo clone! That’s Seaweed’s mouth, I’m reasonably sure.
Since she wished to, Flynn gives her big sister a gift. Of a beanbag chair that has been in the family since before either of them were born.
Seaweed is still around, he’s just not doing a whole lot. I have him skilling science, since he wants to plant a forbidden fruit seed. This is the best discovery he’s made thus far.
Velma did the whole family’s laundry.
So her father autonomously let her off the hook for her bad grades.
And we took the opportunity to ask her about her gender preference; she’s gay! So the next spouse will be a female. Yes, Velma will be the gen 6 heir; since it was only after she was born that the ‘one child’ rule was lifted, I figure she can be this heir, but any of her children will be eligible for heir. Also, Seaweed’s generation has already gone on for 11 chapters, which is the longest so far!
The Laserkatt and Rourke families are officially entwined on the family tree now. I’m pretty sure this is Cosette’s first great-grandchild.
Brillo got a promotion! This is L5.
She has now wished to join the thief branch; I haven’t had a sim do this when it’s not part of their LTW.
Since Seaweed has completed all he needs for this generation, he’s working on maxing out skills; need to pump out the points! His paintings aren’t nearly as interesting as Velma’s…
When Brillo came home from work, I decided she should make breakfast for her children.
Yay, family breakfast! Such an unusual thing nowdays.
Brillo headed downstairs to learn martial arts; she got a work opportunity to do so. Cosette is a master, so she’s training her daughter-in-law.
After the kids go to school, we have a little party in the kitchen. Brillweed are turning elder!
If anyone can rock skinny jeans and an animal-print tee at her age, it’s Brillo!
Seaweed gets a checked shirt and paler hair; I just don’t see bright blue hair going to grey in an instant.
One last popup; Rad made World Renowned Surgeon!
