  • Tricks of the Trade (40 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (27 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)

So last time with the family we finished that final base game aspiration and got Oriole through the relic requirement. We just have a few more things to complete and so let’s see if we can get through them here.

The party we had thrown for the boys continued a little into the night at after it was over Oryx moved out and into his own home. He is out in the world for MCCC to determine if anything more will happen with him.

Pine gets his picture taken for the family scrapbook wall and we only need 3 more to complete that challenge. Once the girls become teens and then one of Oriole now that he is heir and gets his book written.

Speaking of books, it takes a couple of sit downs at the computers, and a few distractions, but Oriole gets his part of the anthology completed. That’s another goal down for him and we really just need to get him through his aspiration.

I had forgotten to mention it earlier but Analisa managed to actually complete Super Parent when Oryx grew up with his three character value traits. in the positive. Both her and Rye have gotten the Big Happy Family one next.

We started to get “bored” right around here since there wasn’t a ton to do left but to wait for everyone to grow up so we watched the extended family updates a lot. A couple pairs of the twins grew up, Lake, who is Petunia’s oldest, is having a baby, and Reed’s boy is a child.

Apparently something was causing issues with completing chess games for a while. The girls both were nearly maxed mental skill after hours of sitting at the chess table, but had made zero progress on the aspiration, so I just said “forget it.”

Oriole, while working on potions, managed to curse himself with some sort of frightening curse. I can’t remember exactly what it was, but luckily he had a Curse Cleansing potion from before. It fixed him right up in no time.

Kyra, Jay’s wife, is now an elder, while Ivy, Bay’s only girl, is now a teen, and we had some deliveries too. Birch now has a second daughter, and Rose had twins!

This might have been TV premier night, but I can’t remember, but certainly most of the family gathered together. Nerine might be working on scouting badges.

For some reason I think Pine has started asking Oriole for advise instead of his parents. I get asking your older brother, but Oriole doesn’t have the parenting skills to give me many options.

With Oriole’s book done we adjusted the walls a little bit to put the shelf up so it could be center and not in the corner like before. We also got Oriole’s picture up and all that’s left is the girls.

Speaking of the girls it was time for their birthday once again. Both of them completed a single aspiration since Whiz Kid broke and we didn’t force a new one. Their make-overs completed and I’m showing a secondary outfit to what they had in the poll. Nyala adds slob and creatively gifted to her mean trait. She rolls Fabulously Wealthy for her aspiration. Nerine adds materialistic and socially gifted to her goofball trait, and rolls Jungle Explorer for her aspiration.

Then, of course, in true sims fashion they do their homework together sitting on the bathroom floor. Could have walked across the “hall” to the table, but oh well. It’s nice to know some things, like the importance of bathrooms in a sims life, never really change.

Oriole has taken up much of the gardening, and while he’s out there he practices a little magic. I haven’t gotten him a familiar yet, but want to do that at some point.

These two are still very sweet and very much in love with each other. They might be rivaling Autumn and Desiree as my favorite couple this challenge.

Sadly the family is ready to go through another sad period where many of our elder sims start to pass away. We start with Rye’s twin, Reed passing. Then Misty, Orca’s daughter is next, but then we get a happy birthday to Oak.

With the girls becoming teens we are able to get their pictures and finish up our family scrapbook walls. That means they are all completed and we have finished that mini-challenge. I’m quite happy with how the walls turned out.

Then Oriole goes and finishes up the final requirement for this challenge other than the girls becoming young adults. He finishes a nature aspiration and just to give me, and him, something to do he takes on Academic next.

One of the first things Oriole needed to do was to gain research and so he heads up to work on his grandma Olive’s research machine.

Oryx comes over for a visit and the whole family gathers, although I’m not sure where Rye is at this moment, maybe he’s taking the picture. The siblings are happy to see Oryx again and hang out.

Then, while Nerine works on her arts and crafts badge upstairs, Oriole argues about college with his parents. Not in terms of where to go, or how to pay for it, but more, what to study. Since it’s the end of the challenge he won’t complete anything, but hopefully it will still be fun.

Lots of extended family updates happen then and some craziness ensues as well. First Cyprus is now an adult, and then Hawk and Danna welcome a little girl. Buttercup, Birch’s daughter, is now a toddler, Lake and Esmeralda welcome TRIPLETS to the extended family. Rose’s twin daughter, Cherry and Doe, are toddlers, and finally, Kellie, Wade’s wife, passes away leaving Barley and Blade to be adopted out. When I went to look for these two Barley was gone. He was no longer in the family tree, nothing. So I ended up going back to a previous save, pulling him out of it and adding him back in. Then I had both boys move in with their older brothers instead and messed up all kinds of the relationships trying too fix everything in this branch of the family.

Regardless of all of that though, it was time for one more birthday for this update and it’s Analisa’s turn. There isn’t a ton of fanfare because I almost forgot to make her a cake, but she is now an elder like her husband.

Analisa’s birthday feels like a great place to end this update and so it’s once again time too review all the people who have grown up or come into this crazy family.

On the top row we find Averie Adair, who married Bay. Next two her are two of our baby mama’s, Danna Padilla who had Hawk’s baby, and Esmeralda Yost, who just had triplets with Lake. Next up a couple sets of twins. First is Tulip and Thyme, Petunia’s twins. Second row we start with Elm and then Eagle, Bay’s twins. Then we have their siblings Oak, who is the youngest, and Ivy, the only girl. Last up on that middle row we have Cotton, Reed’s boy.

Finally, on the bottom row we have all the toddlers from this update. We start with Rose’s twins, Cherry and then Doe. Next is a closer look at Buttercup, Birch’s youngest, and then finally we have Honey Farr, who is Cyprus’ daughter, and finally Crow Dolan, who is Glen’s youngest.

That will wrap up our update for this time and I hope we will see you next update where I think we will likely finish up this challenge.

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.
