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).

Charlotte

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.

snapshot_33e5e393_05b3047c

Elene was still popular. In fact she was big on campus.

snapshot_c58a67e8_a5a4e033

One student was particularly interested, Shane Noir. But he would have to act quickly.

snapshot_c58a67e8_e5a4dcd5

So he took the plunge.

snapshot_c58a67e8_85a4de9c

She didn’t resist. In fact she enjoyed it. During the rest of their time at university, he got closer and closer to her and eventually popped the question.  She accepted.

They returned to Veronaville and moved into an apartment where they had the wedding.

wedc

It was a small affair with no fuss at all (not even any chairs for the guests in the tiny backyard. (Check out that road!)

wedg

But inside was bigger and everyone had a great time.

wedr

Back home, Sebastien held a dancing competition.

dancecomp

He announced Claire as the winner. I think he was biased.

dancecompw

Xavier had now written four best-selling novels. Claire and Sebastien read them. The latest, The Road to Hell, was a bit grim for Claire’s liking.

novels

Sebastien is now 70 but shows no sign of giving up music.

Vrancea soon got pregnant.

snapshot_75eea316_05b4d853

Viran is in the science career but Vrancea hasn’t found work yet.  She wanted a baby. She didn’t expect twins however.  It makes sense. Her father-in-law was a twin.

Viran was at work when Vrancea went into labour.

snapshot_75eea316_a5b4d888

Luckily it was at night so Miranda could help out.

snapshot_75eea316_85b4d8bc

The first baby – a boy, Vacul.

snapshot_75eea316_25b4d8d4.jpg

The second – a girl, Savika.

Miranda introduced her granddaughter to the great outdoors.

snapshot_75eea316_05b4e219

Miranda and Vlad complained about the twins smelling, even lecturing them (but did nothing about it).
