The youngest of Sebastien and Claire’s children, Cezanne, had returned from university with her fiancé, Jerome.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 14-50-33-14

They moved into a small house,

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 14-51-49-95

and then went clothes shopping.

They are currently unemployed and figured they may as well get married as soon as possible, as Cezanne’s parents were getting old. By the time everything was arranged, it was evening.

Sims2ep9 2018-02-10 13-45-49-91

That’s not the hairstyle that I had planned for formal wear, but never mind. Guests were all family members including cousin, Tom Arends.

Cake.

snapshot_478b1ea7_878b1ef0

Most guests took a piece,

snapshot_478b1ea7_878b1f27

but Sebastien preferred a snack.

snapshot_478b1ea7_c78b1f35

He looked a bit worried about interractions between his daughter-in-law and his new son-in-law.

snapshot_478b1ea7_678b1fdb

He needn’t have been.

The brothers chatted while watching sport,

snapshot_478b1ea7_678b2165

and Xavier got an idea for another novel.

snapshot_478b1ea7_e78b218c

This is what Cezanne’s hair should have looked like.

snapshot_478b1ea7_e78b2124

The wedding was a roof raiser.

Jerome is into computers. A perfect career for him would be hacker.

snapshot_478b1ea7_678b228d

The only member of the family that wasn’t at the wedding was Elene. Her daughter, Ellie, was now a toddler.

snapshot_65ba26fa_e785bf57

Elene has her attention turned to the neighbour, Cedar.

Viran hadn’t quite got used to the idea of being a vampire.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-22-33-37

With both grandparents and father vampires and a working mother, Veles didn’t always get the attention he needed.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-29-50-89

Meanwhile his twin sister was clever enough to figure out how to get out of the cot.

Vlad seemed addicted to the telescope, perhaps in the hope of seeing those fabled aliens.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-13-12-48

He was in luck.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-19-13-10

He was gone for several hours, and apparently no-one noticed his absence. It was unfortunate that he was deposited back on earth during daylight hours.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-25-59-47

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-26-20-34

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-26-54-86

He felt ill soon afterwards, which puzzled Miranda. How can vampires get ill if they’re dead?

There will soon be a half alien, half vampire child amongst them…

Things started happening, finally.

Having vampire grandparents, a sleeping father, and a mother at work didn’t help the twins.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-05-28-09

However, despite being tired, Veles walked to the potty.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-07-14-30

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-07-53-13

Viran finally woke up and could attend to the toddlers.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-09-30-00

He put Veles to bed…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-12-04-11

and let Verene out.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-12-37-65

Meanwhile, attraction between Vlad and Vrancea grew.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-34-06-48

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-55-13-44

Viran was oblivious.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-48-47-38

Vlad saw an opportunity to make Vrancea a vampire.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-07-52

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-31-58

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-56-57-62

Done.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-57-17-60

Viran and Miranda had no idea,

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-57-42-66

but Verene heard something, like a flapping…

and suddenly Vrancea was there.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-58-13-50

Now it was Viran’s turn…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 10-59-58-91

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-07-29-21

But, Vrancea knew, not everyone could be a vampire, as the children needed attention. She called up the matchmaker who sold potions.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-02-39-40

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-02-54-18

The matchmaker sold her one vial. Vrancea had thought there was a store of vampricillin somewhere in the house but she hadn’t found it. Never mind. Here goes, she thought.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-03-35-15

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-03-50-88

I think she looks better.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-04-09-10

Now she could look after the kids…

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-09-46-69

and was quite attracted to Viran’s new look.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-26 11-12-25-07

Aisha seems to have been pregnant for ages. But it was of course with her second child this time.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-30-57-18

Still, I was beginning to think she’d never have it when she went into labour.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-33-35-60

She had a boy before the game crashed. On re-entering she had a girl, so I exited and played again and thankfully, she had a boy again, called Antony.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-35-27-76

Little Petronella was a happy girl.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 14-14-07-83

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 14-13-00-28

Richard and Aisha taught her to walk.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-12-16-55

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-20-07-14

She was good at mealtimes too.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-22-51-78

She’s a cutie.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 13-23-37-75

Aisha could finally get back to work. She was promoted to sous chef.

Sims2ep9 2018-01-14 14-08-24-57

It took a long time to play this household. The game kept crashing… why, I don’t know. It’s only a couple of richer, bigger (space-wise) households that crash.

As for Charlotte, she had a bit of a makeover after Wendy turned into a teenager (so they wouldn’t look alike, and she was getting older – in her 40s now).

snapshot_4488f1d5_876a38e1

Charlotte

snapshot_4488f1d5_e76a378b

Wendy

The date of my last post corresponds with the beginning of a new job which has left me less time to play and update.

I’m wondering whether to eliminate the DeMarr family from blog updates as nothing much has happened with that family and I miss them yet again for another update on the Champignon family (a large one, I guess).

So over to René’s branch of the Champignon family. The pics below were taken several months ago and I hadn’t updated, as it was the turn of the Lillards, but again nothing much had happened with them since.

You may, or may not remember their house (below on a rainy day).

snapshot_04e85443_a6da98a2

René and his wife, Marielle, having breakfast. I’m can’t remember the circumstances surrounding these pics.

snapshot_04e85443_46da94da

snapshot_04e85443_66da94ce

René was promoted, I think.

snapshot_04e85443_a6da9e44

The couple had three children: Merivienne, and twins Laurent and Felicienne.

snapshot_04e85443_c6da92da

The girls below. It turned out they were clones of each other.

snapshot_04e85443_46da9525

snapshot_04e85443_a6da92c3

I expect Laurent was too, but he looked sufficiently different and was the heir. The Sim god, however, didn’t want clone girls, so the younger one met with an unfortunate ‘accident’.

snapshot_04e85443_c6da95c3

snapshot_04e85443_06da9693

She drowned.

snapshot_04e85443_c6da96c6

Naturally, the parents were upset.

snapshot_04e85443_c6da974e

However, Marielle was pregnant again.

snapshot_04e85443_86da955c

As the months passed, their grief faded a little.

snapshot_04e85443_e6da9bd1

Nothing is happening at the DeMarr house – they’ve become quite boring lately.

Sebastien invited Rene and his family over. Claire was delighted to see her grandchildren.

snapshot_7628c425_e5dbf567

snapshot_7628c425_e5dbf999

Claire found Merivienne delightfully talkative.

The cousins, Laurent and Renaud, chatted and played.

snapshot_7628c425_e5dbf58d

snapshot_7628c425_85dbf652

Sebastien’s sister, Chantal, was also visiting.

snapshot_7628c425_45dbf60c

Rene still seems to look up to Xavier.

snapshot_7628c425_05dbfc70

Marielle doesn’t seem to like her brother- and sister-in-law.

snapshot_7628c425_25dbfba2

She seems to think that Xavier is a negative influence. She likes her husband to be serious and successful, not mucking about having mindless fun.

snapshot_7628c425_45dbfbdb

snapshot_7628c425_25dbfc1b

Her brother-in-law is unemployed and irresponsible she thinks.

snapshot_7628c425_a5dbf627

What a killjoy.

Merivienne (much to Marielle’s disgust if she knew) was having the time of her life.

snapshot_7628c425_85dbf72a

And Chantal was getting to know her great nephew Renaud better.

snapshot_7628c425_e5dbfa55

It was a pretty successful family reunion.

Meanwhile Cezanne had arrived at uni.

snapshot_0524d3be_25e13fea

The only suitable thing she could find to wear was a black dress – not quite what she wanted.

She met what she thought was a cool townie who seemed to have similar interests.

snapshot_0524d3be_c5e1415a

 

Ok, well, I haven’t updated for a long time. I had pics waiting to post but then I played the medieval hood for a while and then joined the building contest at modthesims after which I basically stopped playing and just built stuff.

So, I’ll see if I can remember anything.  Although Aisha had been given a makeover, she still didn’t dress beautifully.

snapshot_33e5e393_e5b302da

In any case she fell pregnant.

snapshot_33e5e393_c5b30f33

Richard was delighted and hoped for a boy, an heir.

snapshot_33e5e393_85b30e06

He loved seeing Aisha’s growing tummy.

snapshot_33e5e393_85c9ad8c

His mother, Sarah, wanted to feel the baby kick, but Aisha was having none of that.

snapshot_33e5e393_25b30eaesnapshot_33e5e393_25b30eb5

Sadly, for Sarah, she never got to see the baby. She died at the age of 74.

snapshot_33e5e393_c5c9aa42

Richard was devastated,

snapshot_33e5e393_c5c9aac3

snapshot_33e5e393_85c9aacb

while Aisha didn’t much care. Her sister, Mandy, was also pregnant and came to visit.

snapshot_33e5e393_25c9acc1

snapshot_33e5e393_c5c9ac7f

They both look like they’re carrying twins but they were both a little chubby to begin with (all that fish at home).

Richard didn’t get his son. A girl was born, Petronella.

snapshot_33e5e393_05c9adb9

But Richard was happy enough. They could try again.

snapshot_33e5e393_85c9ae6f

Petronella grew quickly. Before long it was her birthday.

snapshot_33e5e393_a665365d

(Aisha, you may notice, is in preggy clothing once again. It didn’t take Richard long.)

snapshot_33e5e393_6665367d

As for Richard’s sister, Charlotte, she had a visit from the police for trying to forge money.

snapshot_4488f1d5_05b349f0

She was pretty lucky to get away with just a warning.

Charlotte’s ex, meanwhile, was having the time of his life.

snapshot_140d7c71_a5d2b683

Ilse still had problems with her in-laws spending lots of time with her son.

renaud1

When she finally got some time alone with him, she wasn’t sure what to do.

renaud2

But some innate instinct kicked in.

renaud3

However, he had grown quickly and his birthday came around too soon.

renaud4

Xavier proclaimed his continual love for Ilse in the hope he could persuade her to now have another child.

snapshot_7628c425_05c20d0f

Ilse was not interested.

Sebastien and Claire are still very much in love, still going strong.

snapshot_7628c425_05dc0a0f

Sebastien’s very distant cousin, the icon, Robert Champignon, had died at the age of 72. Sebastien visited the family with his condolences.

visit

When I last updated, I hadn’t realised that the game hadn’t saved before it crashed! So I had to go through the birth again. I took the opportunity to rename the twins to Veles and Verene.

Talking of makeovers, Viran’s hair looks different now.

snapshot_75eea316_e5d03c69

He’s a good dad.

snapshot_75eea316_c5d03c5f

The twins quickly grew to toddlers.

snapshot_75eea316_c5d03de9

snapshot_75eea316_e5d03ebe

They played together,

snapshot_75eea316_25d041be

and get on well (although I’m not sure that Veles is enjoying the hug quite so much).

snapshot_75eea316_45d0425b

Their parents taught them to walk.  They’re only halfway through their toddlerhood and they can walk and talk and, I think, are also potty-trained.

snapshot_75eea316_a5d044c4

snapshot_75eea316_65d044d6

Over in Bluewater, Viran’s aunt, Demona, died at the age of 77. She had been a captain hero.

snapshot_826ce296_e5c4b026

[My game has been crashing fairly frequently. I think it’s cc. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s doing it but it’s very time-consuming, taking my time away from actually playing.]

[PS: I really hate the new blog layout when writing (with the menu on the right-hand side) and when I write a post it doesn’t scroll down so my text disappears at the bottom! I have to physically stop and scroll up to see it. Really fucking annoying. Thanks WordPress.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fucking fix it! I also hate the new reader display.]

Daughter-in-law, Aisha, was rather plain, thought Sarah, but not unattractive.

snapshot_33e5e393_45b30a68

She offered to give Aisha a makeover.

snapshot_33e5e393_45b3027f

Sarah thought the little bob suited her much better and Aisha seemed pleased.

Also contemplating a more serious makeover was Richard.  He had been a handsome teen, but things didn’t stay that way.

snapshot_33e5e393_c5b30307

He didn’t like his nose or cheekbones and his ears seemed too round for his liking.  He headed for the machine in the shed.

snapshot_33e5e393_25b30335

It didn’t go well.

snapshot_33e5e393_a5b30346

There was no way he was letting his family see him like that so he tried again, and was more successful.

snapshot_33e5e393_e5b30471

He loved the new face.
