Otts Family – Alan 03

Alan 02 | Rules | Family Tree | Alan 04

Hi and welcome back. Three updates in a row, three days in a row. It’s a little crazy isn’t it? Well, a lot has happened with the Otts family, and I played a ton over the holiday weekend, so let’s get started shall we?

Alan spends more time on his violin. I think getting him through the music aspiration isn’t going to be that terribly difficult. I’m excited to see what he gets next.

Really Audra? Am I going to start having to dislike you? Why did you stay dancing instead of walking through the door right there that leads to a bathroom?? -5 points

Then it happened. I knew it was coming and I still wasn’t ready. Not yet Eddie!! Your grand baby is almost here!!!!

Alan was home, but upstairs, so I started sending him downstairs, but he gets to the bottom of the stairs and starts freaking out. Why???

Audra is in labor. So Alan stopped to panic about the labor, which means he didn’t get to his dad in time to plead with the reaper!!! NO EDDIE!!!!!! *sniff* All right, off to the hospital you two.

It took forever to check Audra in, and meanwhile Alan decided it was the perfect time to chat up this ghost doctor. He was probably wondering if there was anything that could be done for his dad. Meanwhile, poor Audra is just waiting to be allowed back to the rooms.

Eventually the doctor, or rather nurse practitioner, arrives and Audra heads back. Alan decides it’s more important to keep talking to Ghost Doc.

Hooray, only one baby! It’s a little boy, whom we name Bryce. Welcome baby Bryce Otts.

Back at home uncle Arthur, who is still actually around, just hasn’t done anything to warrant being talked about until now….

Arthur: Hey now!

Well, you haven’t. You are at a low C in school, haven’t done homework is weeks, haven’t done anything towards your aspiration, but also haven’t passed out, peed yourself, or otherwise been a nuisance.

Arthur: Ok, but ouch. Now, what to do with a smelly, crying child.

Just tend to the baby already!

We have received notice it’s also someone’s birthday. Julia, my dear, I know you are sad and miss your beloved, but you look lovely.

Alan tries to be a good big brother. He may get a positive moodlet from being around misery because of his “evil” trait, but he also shares the hurt of their dad’s passing and tries to cheer up his brother.

Alan then keeps working out. He is one of my fittest sims ever. He seriously seems to enjoy working out.

Julia was always a good mom with babies, and she turns out to be a good grandma as well. She heads up to baby Bryce and handle all his needs.

Alan is also a good dad, and currently Audra doesn’t sleep in her bed, she sleeps in any of the others she can. My guess is she doesn’t want the baby to wake her, so Alan takes that on.

Audra is actually a pretty good dancer, she gets down to the music. I haven’t seen the moves she pulls out yet from my sims.

Then Alan is back at practicing the violin. He just needs a little bit more to reach a milestone.

And milestone hit! Way to go Alan. +5 points. He got a bit of an audience to boot.

Ok, it is SERIOUSLY dangerous to be on the streets in this part of town apparently. Julia, standing around in the front of the house, gets into a fight.

Audra isn’t QUITE the mother that Julia was. She does eventually take care of the baby, but to start she just tries to quiet him.

Poor Julia has had a rough time, getting into a fight, losing Eddie. So when I find her crying in the bathroom I feel for her. She JUST became and elder and has to live all her elder years without her love.

Love Day is here again, and so Audra and Alan take the day off work and go on a much needed date to their favorite burger joint.

Once they get back home, Alan pulls Audra into the shower for some additional fun.

With that move, a second B-baby is on the way. Congrats to the happy couple. Audra is about 8 days older than Alan, but with pregnancies he is going to catch up fast.

To wrap up this story, Love Day was also the day for two birthdays in the house. First up is Arthur. Alan baked him a cake.

Arthur wound up with the Responsible trait, so YAY, that’s +5 points from Arthur. Bye Arthur, I’m sure we will see you around soon!

The second birthday is Bryce’s birthday. Alan goes up to the bassinet to help him grow up, and my but is he a cutie!

I will probably give him a bit of a makeover before the next update, but for now, the family still holds many moodlets of being sad, but luckily Bryce has given them a lot of reasons for happiness as well. I’m excited to see what the next little baby will be.

We also got a notification that Ariana has moved into StrangeVille, of course she has, but no notifications of any relationships for her yet. I would expect Arthur will probably start a relationship fairly quickly, but we will see.

All right we are back up to 110 points. This ISBI is going pretty well, and while Audra’s standing around outside the front of the house is fairly irritating I’m hoping we are passed the worst of it now. I miss Eddie, he was such a great sim, but with the baby coming I just wasn’t able to save him. I’m sure he would have loved Bryce.

Otts Family – Alan 02

Alan 01 | Rules | Family Tree | Alan 03

Welcome back to the Otts! Last time we saw how Alan did at taking over as the TH. He managed to find a girl, get married, and have a new little nooboo on the way. The rest of the family didn’t do a whole lot, but let’s see how it all goes this entry.

So we start with Audra sharing the news about the new baby. Alan looks a little dubious. Although he’s excited later.

I love it when Ariana comes over for a visit. She always fixes the electronic stuff! Thank you Ariana!!!

Alan gets busy fixing everything else. We realize that when we moved, we didn’t update all of the new sinks and toilets, which is probably leading to why they are always broken.

Audra is a Loner, Geek, Cat Lover. At some point I will probably get them a cat for that reason. I took her traits, loaded them into a randomizer, and rolled her an aspiration, which is Party Animal. I don’t know that she will get very far in anything, but we’ll see. I did get her a job as a Style Influencer, that seemed to to fit her, although she loves video games, so maybe I should have done something with that.

Audra finishes up her game and starts doing this….

I love you Audra. I feel like you were the right choice for Alan. If we can get things to stop breaking so much, you clean and that’s all we need!

She does seem to like popcorn more than just about any other food, but that’s ok. There is always a ready supply for the toddlers to come. I also gave her a bit of a make-over, but there isn’t a whole lot different in her everyday look.

Eddie finishes his meal and starts working out. Eddie, I know you are getting close to end of life, and I appreciate you want to extend it, but please don’t quicken it!

Audra seems to be night owl, she is up all hours. Arthur has started sleeping right after school and then being up all night. He also hasn’t done any homework since Ariana left. I’m a bit worried about him. The two keep each other company at night discussing music.

Audra then decides it’s the perfect time to go build a snow man. I don’t think she ever finished it.

Julia, my dear, you are fighting a losing battle, but I still love that you try. You had to be one of the best ISBI spouses I could have found!

YAY for Alan getting us points!!! +5 Points

Ok kid, you have made up your point losses as a toddler. I think I can officially like you now.

Alan: Gee, thanks.

Eddie, my man, what happened??? -5 points

The standing around outside has claimed another victim. Come on Audra!!! -5 Points.

Seriously girl, GO INSIDE!!!

Alan has been at work so he cannot do anything to help his wife, but he does come home with this: (sadly it gives us no points.)

Ugh, seriously Audra. If you get hurt in someway, and why the heck is this person fighting you? Apparently this is why you should be in your house and not out on the streets!

I guess she won? Good thing fights aren’t a point loss! Audra, stop buying food and GO HOME. You have a fridge STOCKED WITH FOOD steps away!

I finally have Alan “Call Over” to Audra so she actually comes into the house. From there, she seems fine. Takes a shower, sleeps in bed, etc. *sigh* Who know what is going to happen with this.

The next day:

Audra: Sink is broken.

Yes, I know, you also broke the shower.

So Alan to the rescue, again. Seriously need to get upgrades done on everything.

I make myself a little nervous, Alan isn’t NEW to cooking, but I’ve had him make salads, this is the first thing he’s COOKED, but he did a great job!

Awww, Eddie!! Too bad I don’t get points for this, but good job!

Audra comes home from work and starts to stand around again, so Alan goes over and cloud gazes with her.

They manage to go to sleep in the same bed, at the same time this night. It’s kind of a miracle. I’ll be happy when the baby arrives!

I was going to try and get to when the nooboo was born, but I have played that far ahead and feel like I need to do another post for all of that information. So for now we will call it a day from the Otts!

Otts Family – Alan 01

Eddie 10 | Rules | Alan 02

Welcome back to the Otts, and welcome to the start of Alan Otts’ time as the TH for this family. Eddie has moved into NTH status after completing a couple of aspirations and raising his 3 kids.

Upon entering the household almost everyone was asleep, or heading to sleep, but Alan was up and alert, so we decided to take him into town to see if there were any YA ladies that struck his fancy. We first stopped by the night club, and spied this bar tender.

They hit it off really well, and I think she’s quite pretty. Her name is also Audra, which would fit in great for our alphabetcy. However, wanting to make sure we look at our options, Alan heads for the Cafe.

While enjoying his breakfast we see a woman heading over to the food stand, she is a vendor, but also a young adult. Alan heads out to great her.

She’s pretty enough, but I also want some genetic diversity in the family, and she has the same brown hair as Alan already has. Plus, they don’t hit it off nearly as well. So Alan makes another stop and heads to the library. The librarian here is also a young adult female and quite pretty.

She and Alan have a nice conversation, but of the 3, after a short conversation Audra has the highest relationship. They hit it off so well, she has the blond hair to bring into the mix, and is really cute. So we send Alan home.

Whatcha doing Alan?

Alan: Chatting with Audra. She’s pretty cool, I kind of like her.

That is very sweet Alan. I like her too, enjoy your chatting.

(Yes, he was chatting with Audra and kept showing the little hearts, it was adorable!)

Alan then heads up stairs to practice his violin. I realized we could have had him do the guitar, and it might have made more sense for him, but then you see Alan play the violin and I realize it was the right choice.

It’s “Out on the Town” night or whatever they call it the next day, and even though it’s snowing like crazy, the family heads down to the new burger joint that just opened up in town. Alan also invites Audra to come with him, and Ariana gets to join in as well.

The dinner goes really well until this…

-5 points, although, full disclosure, I knew this was likely. Julia was in pretty bad shape. She still will just stand around for hours outside the house before she comes in.

As the family thinks about heading home, Alan goes around the side to say good-bye to Audra. They are too cute! Please be a good pick Audra!

The next day, while Alan is working around the house he gets a phone call from Audra that said she couldn’t get him out of her mind (yes, that is what it actually said) and would he like to go on a date. So back to the burger joint we went….only this time in a blizzard.

The cold and snow wasn’t going to stop these adorable love birds.

The next day is New Years and so Alan hatches a plan, with my help of course. Audra is invited over to celebrate with the family.

She and Arthur have already formed quite the relationship, but she seems to really like Alan.

The countdown to midnight is watched without Audra, who decided to go to bed. She was invited to spend the night so it wasn’t weird.

But then Alan decides it’s time. As the new year begins Alan wants to wait no longer for Audra.

She says yes!!! Then she leaps into his arms. How cute are they? They then celebrate in their own way.

Audra leaves the next morning before I can get Alan to choose to marry her, but luckily Audra invites Alan to come into StrangerVille (why I have no idea….maybe it should have been a hint.) So Alan has the entire family join him for an impromptu wedding.

After the “ceremony” when Audra has moved out of her brother and sister-in-law’s place, she and Alan waste no time to getting a family started.

Our first Baby B is on the way. With that I believe I am going to call this update complete. I will give you more information on Audra next update. I really do like her and hope she does well.

So a small loss of points from Julia’s pass out, but a new little nooboo on the way will bring those points back up. Hopefully we don’t lose a bunch of points next round.

Otts Family – Eddie 10

Eddie 09 | Rules | Alan 01

Welcome back to this lovely Otts family and to the final update for Eddie’s generation. As hard as it is for me to believe, at the end of this update it will be time for Alan to take over.

With that in mind this is a bit of a longer update as I didn’t want to try and break this into two short updates, so I hope you don’t mind a little bit more of the Otts fun. Without further ado, let’s take a quick look at the family.

Ariana is working on fixing the sink for us. I’m amazed she doesn’t have more handiness, since she’s been on a fixing streak lately.

Eddie and Alan are eating some food at the table, while Arthur is heading off somewhere in the background.

Julia was at work so no picture was taken of her. Eddie is getting close to reaching the top of the Painter Extraordinaire and I would love to reach this before Alan takes over. So he heads off to the museum to look at art.

The trip out was too much for Ariana, who decided to pass out on me. -5 Points.

It’s about this moment that I realize Eddie was at an Art’s Center and not a museum, so he heads over, by himself, to a museum to look at art.

Back at home, the kids and Julia spend some time together, eating and working on homework.

I love the brother sister bonding that has been happening with these guys lately. I’m not convinced Alan is actually Evil.

Ariana is working on getting her additional skills needed to get an A, but she is very close to growing up and might not make it.

Now that we have speakers, dancing has started becoming a very exciting thing for the family. Eddie is not the best, Alan…..well, he’s Alan.

Even Julia give it a shot, but again…not always the best.

The parents sleep “late” one day and so the kids bond together. They are such good kids!

ALAN OTTS!!!! Stop destroying the dollhouse! Your brother really likes playing with that!

Alan: Hey, you made me evil

I didn’t do anything…..the randomizer made you evil, but you don’t have to give in.

Alan: *shurgs*

Ugh!

Arthur, you are such a good kid. I know you haven’t gotten much attention since you are so much younger than your siblings and aren’t the heir.

I can’t resist Alan’s faces though. Such an expressionistic sim.

Eddie starts cleaning up the bathroom….

But, that isn’t what I want him doing. It’s time to work on getting another milestone in painting!

AND WE MAKE IT!!!! + 5 Points Way to go Eddie!

Sweet Arthur.

Do you feel neglected Arthur, I feel kind of bad.

Arthur: No, why? I’m just playing with Mr. Bear since Alan broke the dollhouse again.

Yeah, I yelled at him for that.

Arthur: Yeah, but he’ll fix it at some point I think….he is heir.

Yes, I will make him fix it, but that won’t be until you are older.

Arthur: That’s ok, I have other things to play with.

Happy HarvestFest from the Otts Family!

Alan, I think, is addicted to coffee. I got a notice, sometime around here that a sim had been up for 24 hours….it was Alan. But he still does homework, but then he wants to work out from energized status. I’m keeping my eye on him.

Julia and Eddie are cute together. I don’t let Eddie get nearly as much time with his wife as he would probably like since he’s working like crazy. They sneak in times though.

Then it was time….Ariana’s birthday was here. The baby girl we had not that terribly long ago, it feels like, is going to be moving on.

Ariana got TWO positive character traits: Good Manners and Responsible. +10 points! Way to go Ariana. I wasn’t even really trying for those. Then it was time for her to move out and get to life on her own.

Eddie took some time out the next day to hang out with Arthur, we wanted to see if we could get a best friend status, but we did now.

Why were we working on it though? Well because it was Arthur’s birthday. He only got an B in elementary school, which seems strange, but whatever.

It also happened to be Eddie’s birthday too…..I’m not ready for this!!!

Look who stopped by to say hi to the birthday boys!

YAY for family bonding!!!

The very next day was a new skill day, so the family headed to the bowling alley to have some fun and get some new skills.

The work out bug seems to have started infecting other members of the family. Arthur started, and so has Julia now.

Ariana stopped by again, and this time she decided to fix the broken speaker.

So Alan hasn’t slept more than a nap in days. So the day he did this it doesn’t surprise me. -5 points

Julia just about froze to death outside. Not sure exactly what caused her to just stand there for forever.

Eddie is working on getting through his masterpieces. He’s 2 or 3 in now, or this one could be number 4.

Exhausted, Alan goes for more coffee.

He then goes to take a small nap on the couch.

Gets up and passes out again. -5 points

I have sold the coffee maker. Alan was up for another 24 hours, and didn’t even go to school, all he did was drink coffee. Ariana came by again.

Then the residents decided to head into the bathroom to have more conversation, and then out to the couch to talk some more.

Then, while working on his next job for the freelance career, it happened. Eddie got through the painting aspiration. +10 points

It was time to decide on something I thought Eddie might be able to reach as Alan starts to take over, so we picked the Fabulously Wealthy aspiration and instantly went up 3 milestones +15 points

Then it was Julia’s turn to take away some of those sweet points we had just received. -5 points

The Otts may not all eat together all the time, but the dining table has become a frequent gathering place for them at multiple times. The picture of the brothers caught them talking about coffee….probaby how I removed it from the house.

Then it’s time to wish you all a Happy Winterfest. Ariana visited and had dinner with the family, and I love Alan’s face while decorating. He has, after I got rid of the coffee machine, gone back to a normal sleeping pattern again.

This was just too funny to me. This is what Eddie wears to doing a dance work out from the TV apparently. I am going to miss him!

So I might have been wrong about Alan being ok after removing coffee. Somehow, while heading up to take a shower this happened.

I have to admit I giggled, and luckily right after I un-paused the game he popped to the upstairs landing and was totally fine.

Oh Julia! -5 Points Luckily, Eddie has gotten us a lot of points this round.

Then, before I was really ready, it was time to have Alan grow up. Eddie switched to a job in painting before the cake was made in the hopes that he might get some promotions as an NTH. Then the cake was made….

Upon growing up we checked and while he was close with manners, he did not get a positive trait there, but he did manage to become Responsible. He only got to a B in high school, so just +5 points.

Right after he grew up this notice popped up and I thought it was so cute! Thanks Ariana!

So that wraps up the Eddie Otts generation and it’s time for Generation A to take over and bring us into generation B. Eddie did a great job as our founder, not only in picking a wonderful wife, but also by being so successful in the things we had him do. It will be hard to leave him be now, but we’ll see what happens.

As the final update to this generation, we can get the extra points. Now I’m not sure about the randomizing because while I randomized the kids, I did not randomize Eddie’s aspirations, so I’m not going to count it. We did not, however, use any aspiration reward points, so that +10 point and here is our “Rosebud” amount, so that is +20 points.

We managed to break 100 points already. I feel like that is huge for generation one in this crazy challenge, but who knows who Alan will chose. These guys really did do a great job, and even though we have started getting some pass outs happening again, the family has done a pretty good job taking care of themselves. Next time, we see how Alan does taking over.

Otts Family – Eddie 09

Eddie 08 | Rules | Eddie 10

Welcome back to the Otts family and this silly little ISBI Alphabetcy we have going on. I am back from my trip and just in time to see the ending of the name poll. We have a very clear winner when adding up all the votes from over on boolprop’s site and from the poll we had posted here on WordPress.

I was trying to decide if I make this a bit of a reveal, or if I just post it, but I suppose if I rambled on for long enough it would be a reveal in and of itself. However, I don’t want to bore you all, so let’s just get to it.

The winner of our A generation heir poll is:

A

A

A

A

A

A

A

A

A

ALAN OTTS

That’s right, the kid who lost us all the points early on has gone on to become our heir. He has, since being a toddler, redeemed himself in many ways but we’ll see what the future brings.

The points break down was as follows:

Alan: 8 votes (4 on boolprop, 4 on WP)
Arthur: 5 votes (4 on boolprop, 1 on WP)
Ariana: 3 votes (1 on boolprop, 2 on WP)

It was a pretty clear winner, although watching the boolprop votes I thought it could be a lot closer. So Alan just turned into a teenager, as it were, so there is a way to go before he takes over, so let’s see how everything else goes in the meantime.

Alan has decided to be a big coffee drinker and even looks a little smug with himself here.

Yes, you won the heir poll all right, happy? You redeemed yourself.

Alan: I knew people couldn’t resist me.

*rolls eyes* Well you better bring us in a good amount of points as the heir. No letting that evil side lose on our points!

To check on the rest of the family, Eddie is busy painting. With the new aspiration of Painting Extrodinaire, he is going to be painting up a storm.

Ariana is in chatting with Alan. I can’t remember if these two are even friends, but they talk a fair amount. I really did think it was going to be you when you were younger Ariana.

When we ask Ariana where her mom is she heads in to show us that Julia is watching TV in the living room. She then starts on her homework. Yes Ariana, you can still get us some good points before being sent out on your own!

Alan takes us over to find Arthur is eating some food in the kitchen area. I have realized we are going to need a bigger house here before too much longer so start looking at the idea of expanding the house up.

So the picture above is actually taken post-renovation. Here is a look at the outside of the house now. We changed up the entire layout of the house and added a second floor. We shrunk the footprint of the house so there is a little more yard now, which will be good for the next generation.

Alan, I appreciate it, but really, you’ve won the heir poll. You don’t have to suck up quite so much now.

Julia takes some time to talk more with her only daughter over some breakfast. I wish, so much, that Julia would try the robotics machine on her own, but so far no such luck. It’s all she needs for a promotion.

The siblings really do spend a lot of time together, even if they aren’t always talking. I need both Ariana and Alan to get a skill level of 3 in something to get their grades. They are good at doing homework, just not skilling.

It’s too bad cleaning isn’t actually a skill.

Alan, seriously, are you a neat sim in disguise?

Alan: This helps my responsibility I think.

Ah, you might be right. All right, carry on.

He finishes cleaning and then literally goes upstairs and does this.

And what is this helping Alan?

Alan: I have to be evil SOMETIMES.

Meanwhile, Julia reminds me why I will miss her for forever after she is gone as she heads around and starts cleaning the sinks.

Some brotherly bonding….Awwwwww

Followed by some Father/Daughter bonding. Eddie really has been a good dad. I think he’s at least good friends with all of his kids.

Ariana then sits down and makes me really nervous. I wasn’t sure a sim would autonomously start repairing anything. I did not direct this in any way, and while she did end up dazed from getting a shock, she managed to fix the thing too.

Ariana has also joined in on the coffee trend now. Eddie is also working on getting some higher-paying jobs in the Freelance Artist career as well. He’s actually only at level 4, I hadn’t really realized there were “levels” to this career….whoops.

We have not installed speakers downstairs in the house, with the hopes that Alan (who has shown very little to no interest in music thus far) might listen to some and start working on his aspiration before we get to him. Ariana and Arthur enjoy the music.

Alan, on the other hand, sits down and does his homework.

Are you SURE you are Evil and want to be a musician?

Alan: Hey, I didn’t get a say in the matter, it was all the lucky roll of the dice.

Fair enough. I will help you reach your aspiration when you become the TH.

Poor Arthur hasn’t really been featured much, as he really didn’t do much. He would sleep, eat, do his homework unasked (most of the time), play with the dollhouse (until Alan broke it) or color at his desk.

Someone, I believe it was Ariana, set the table, which meant everyone used a placemat when they ate. Ariana got to work on either her homework or extra credit. You just need to skill Ariana!

Alan too decided to continue to work on school. You also need to skill if you are going to get any higher than the B you currently have.

Oh, it looks like it was extra credit for them both. At least I haven’t had to worry about these kids doing homework!

Before we sign off for this update we will take one more look at Eddie, who is working on painting skill. He has completed the first milestone for painting and thus earns up a few points.

I believe the picture above was a flirty painting and this painting might have been another “emotional” painting, can’t fully remember, but Eddie completed the second milestone for this new aspiration as well. Keep it up Eddie!

I think that feels like a good place to stop, before we start having things go downhill. The family is doing really well, and I believe we are down to a handful of days before Ariana grows up, which means only a little ways to go before our newest TH takes over.

Hopefully, you will join us again soon (and hopefully I will have another update done soon) and see how we end this generation. Hard to believe we are almost through.

Otts Family – Founding Heir Poll

Eddie 08 | Rules | Eddie 09

Oh my gosh, guys, it’s here!! My first heir poll for this family, and for the founding generation. Hopefully, you have read through what has gone on with this family and have a sense of who these 3 are….if not, why not going read them??

If you don’t have time or just want to vote you can vote either here or over at the boolpropl.net site where I will have the poll set up there as well. I’m going to give it basically a week since I’m out of town all next week and won’t have time to play anyway.

Without further ado, let’s get into introducing our heirs and give you a little bit of feedback in case you need it!

We start with the eldest Otts, the only daughter, Ariana. She was a quick favorite early on, being a very fun child sim who did homework, got herself an A, and is on track for getting the responsible trait, and manners trait. I have done a chef before, so her aspiration is less interesting to me, but I really do like her look. I feel so is a fun mix of her parents.

Next up we have the second child of Julia and Eddie. This is their first son, Alan. Alan started out rough. I hated him initially, as he passed out constantly as a toddler, but as he got older he got better. He managed to get an A in elementary school, reached a milestone on his child aspiration and while I have done the musician aspiration before it’s one of my favorites. I’m not sure I love his traits, but he really has grown on me as a sim, and I think he could be a lot of fun.

He is also right on track to get the responsible trait, but also might reach the non-empathetic trait, which could be interesting to play with. We will see, he’s not there quite yet, but about 1/2 way.

Finally, we get the youngest Otts, Arthur. Arthur hasn’t done much to really stand out so far in his life, having been a bit overshadowed by his siblings to this point in his life. He has one of the more interesting aspirations to me, as I haven’t played it yet, and the career I decided to roll and it could be interesting as well.

He is currently nowhere close to getting any traits, positive or negative, within range, but he still has all his teenage years as well, so that could change.

Otts Family – Eddie 08

Eddie 07 | Rules | Heir Poll | Eddie 09

Hey guys, this is an exciting update because it will end with your chance to vote on who the next heir will be!!! I’m super excited to be at the stage where I get to do my first heir poll with this family. So, to end to the end, we must start at the beginning.

All right, so to start off, Eddie and Julia are out on another date. Eddie is VERY close to completing his whole aspiration, just needs some more dates and romantic interactions with his wife.

Alan is working on creativity, which has nothing to do with his child aspiration, but it is keeping him out of trouble.

I love watching all of the kids come home for the day, especially Ariana. She is SO dramatic!

Eddie is getting good at painting, I’m not sure he’s fully maxed yet, but his pictures are getting good and dropping much needed money into the family account. I haven’t focused as much on his career as I probably should have.

Eddie, to help out on of the boys, I want to say Alan, he read them both a book.

Then it was time to try something I haven’t tried with an ISBI yet, going on an family outing to the bowling alley. Wish us luck.

Julia spent most of her time sitting and snacking on chips at the bar, but Eddie and the kids got out there and bowled like 2 frames before the family was beat and went home.

Eddie starting trying to influence Arthur to do his homework and tried to help some as well. We really want that kid to get an A.

Then Eddie worked with Alan on his aspiration some more by playing some chess with him.

That was all it took!!!! +5 points, way to go Alan!

He kept his streak going the next day coming home from school. +5 points

I MIGHT be becoming a fan of Alan. He has more than made up for the points he lost us by passing out as a baby.

He even starts working on his next aspiration level by playing with the science station, Arthur is in the back playing with the dollhouse.

The boys are getting closer and closer. They aren’t quite friends yet, but they spend a lot of time together standing around and talking.

Meanwhile, Eddie has decided he will be an pretentious “ar-teist” and paint with a drink in his hand.

How kids manage to get this filthy at school will always be a mystery to me. They hasn’t even been any rain to make it muddy.

Ariana has stalled in school. She needs skills, but is always unhappy and is going through some pretty big mood swings lately. So Eddie tries to be a good parent, and while getting parenting level 9, talks her through it, and gets her to play some chess with him.

She decides she would rather read a book. We went and purchased a few more skill type books to put in the library so hopefully those will get some use eventually.

Without me even realizing he was doing it, Arthur worked on and completed his homework all on his own. These kids are just the best!

Arthur and Alan continuing their brotherly playtime, this time while Alan is working on his social skills with the dollhouse.

Julia comes home and has a meal with her only daughter. Maybe she can help out with Ariana’s mood swings.

Don’t worry, there will be no more babies, but romantic interactions are still needed, and Julia needed a shower.

YAY!!!! Great job Eddie. He completed the milestone +5 points, but that also completes the aspiration, +10 points. Congrats Eddie!!!

The next day is Alan’s birthday, but he wakes up early to do his homework. He’s already got an A, so this will just keep him from losing it.

As I was checking out everything I happened to notice that Arthur, at some point, managed to complete the first level of his aspiration as well! Well, I’ll take that +5 points

These brothers are like magnets to each other. They go their own separate ways for a bit, but always come back together. It’s cute!

Then it’s the moment we have all been waiting for, or at least I have been waiting for it, Alan’s birthday. I no longer instantly want to kick him out of the house on his YA birthday (although we still have teenhood to get through first.)

Eddie is there to witness the event, candles are blown out and huzzah, Alan is now a teenager!

He looks like he’s directing, which is somewhat fitting since he rolls up the Musical Genius aspiration. He did get a child’s practice violin at Winterfest, but I think Ariana is the only one who ever touched it. To add to being Evil he is also a Glutton. That should be fun.

This however, brings us to the end of this update, since we now need to hold an heir poll. Ariana isn’t far from being a YA, and will age up before Arthur grows into a teen, so I’m doing it now….or rather in the next “update.” I cannot wait to see who you will pick!

We are SLOWLY working our way up towards 100 points, although I guess with rounds like this it isn’t that slow. The family did wonderfully this update, so it’s best to end now so we don’t accidently lose them all again. See you at the poll

Otts Family – Eddie 07

Eddie 06 | Rules | Eddie 08

Welcome back to the Otts family! Last time we will with the family Alan grew up into a child, the family moved to a new house, and then Arthur grew up into a toddler. Alan kept trying to suck up to me by doing chores and other things. So let’s head back to the Otts.

Alan is continuing his sucking up by cleaning up one of his sister’ messes.

Our sweet couple, Eddie and Julia, are asleep in bed.

The other two kids are also both asleep. Amazingly enough most of the sims tend to sleep around the same time.

Julia often sits down to play with her kids. I thought she might reach a milestone. She only needs to read 3 books, but so far apparently has only finished one.

Eddie works on teaching Arthur about shapes on his blocks hoping to get his thinking built up enough to get another happy toddler.

Alan then starts to work on his homework. I get it Alan, you want to keep your chances of being the heir. At least I could control you that way.

After finishing his homework Alan then goes and plays with Arthur. Everyone say “awwww.” Happy now Alan?

Ok, maybe he hadn’t finished his homework yet, or on another day Alan did some more homework, or maybe extra credit, I don’t remember now but he’s becoming quite the scholar.

Where has Ariana been this whole time? Well she’s been around and is also quite the little scholar!

For Eddie it’s back to work with Arthur on the Thinking skill. Most of the rest they can get to level 3 without too much effort, but they rarely seem to watch on their own.

Using a mirror we finally got Eddie placed just right so he was able to immortalize himself! +5 points

Julia is also still around and is still a good mom. She has some dinner with her kids in their dining room that finally has enough chairs for everyone.

After school the very next day Ariana add some more points to our coffers by getting an A in school! + 5 points

Arthur is an adorable little toddler and way better than Alan was. He sits quietly and plays with the game tablet getting some movement skill in.

Eddie’s aspiration is within our grasp if we can get him and Julia out on a few more dates and with a few more romantic interactions done, so out on a date they go.

Once they get home something seems to possibly be wrong with the game. Alan is exhausted, hungry, dirty, and needs to use the bathroom, but instead of doing any of those things he stands by his bed until his mom comes in and talks with him.

Even for his sisters birthday, Alan stays in the room standing by his bed. To the point where first his pees himself. -5 points.

Then he passes out…..twice. -10 points.

Now, it’s at this point I’ve had Eddie try and give him food from his inventory, encourage him to take care of his needs and a myrid of other things and he would not move until I had Eddie call him to the living room, where the second pass out picture was taken. Sadly, he then stood there and went no where, so I decided to reset Eddie and see what happened.

Luckily, after a reset, while still in bad shape he was able to get a snack and get some sleep and start feeling much better. Not sure specifically what happened there, but at least everything seems to be better now. During all of that with Alan however, as I mentioned, Ariana grew up!

Upon growing up Ariana got the Materialistic trait, and wants to become a master chef as her aspiration.

To wrap up this round before it gets too crazy long, we had two more birthdays….

First off was little Arthur. He managed to get Happy Toddler, yay +5 points, and right before this he maxed his potty trait, another +5 points. Good job Arthur.

The family then basically turned around and went to the table for the final birthday of this update……Julia is now an adult!

For the first time in forever, the whole family sits down to eat cake and chat. I’m excited to see how Alan and Arthur do, and if we can get Ariana up to an A in high school as well.

And now, before anything bad can happen, let’s leave our Otts family and check out our score after all of that.

Whoo, even with the issues with Alan (which I could argue were caused by a glitch, but I will take the hit) we ended in positive points. Let’s hope we can keep the momentum going next time.

Otts Family – Eddie 06

Eddie 05 | Rules | Eddie 07

Welcome back to the Otts family for another update, hopefully, we will get some new points this time. We join the family finishing up Winterfest by having a bit of a feast made by Eddie.

Alan is actually kind of a sweet kid, but I still am not a huge fan yet, since he has lost us a bunch of points.

The family spends some time watching tv before heading to bed.

Ariana does her homework sitting on her brothers bed. What is it about sims sitting on toddler beds?

Then I see why Ariana is doing homework, her mom is once again in her bed. Luckily she goes and naps on the couch.

Alan does something good….he maxes out his potty trait. +5 points…those are some of the first points you have earned us since your birth Alan.

Would you know it, it’s also time for him to grow up into a child.

He reached the Happy Toddler level, which is +5 points again. Alan is also Evil….that seems to suit.

With Alan’s birthday done, the next day is moving day. I built the house based off a blueprint I found online and I think it turned out pretty good. I’m not used to building in TS4 yet.

Here’s a quick little look inside. It’s got 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, so hopefully, we can be here for at least the rest of this generations and into the next one some, but we’ll see.

Right after moving in little Arthur was set to grow up, so Eddie was over to help out. He’s a cutie.

Arthur got the Wild trait, just like his brother, and shows that quickly by making all kinds of noise in the new kitchen.

Alan is apparently bound and determined to get himself back on my good side.

I guess Ariana likes to do homework sitting on any bed but her own now. She has got to be getting close to her A.

Wow, look, they are all sleeping at the same time. I love this family.

When Alan wakes up he then does this…..yeah, he’s really trying to for my good side again.

Apparently, no one is happy this morning, although I’m not sure why. I love their faces.

Ok Alan, what’s up? Are you trying to get a responsible trait?

Ok kids….really, I appreciate all of this and love you for it, but what has suddenly gotten into you both?

Brotherly Love….awwww

Eddie works on trying to get Arthur’s imagination leveling up by reading him stories to bed. The new house seems to be better for routing.

The kids wake up the next day and grab some popcorn and sit to chat. It’s now New Years.

Additional homework being done by Ariana. It’s surprising to me she only has a B, but I think she just needed to finish getting her creativity up.

Eddie and Julia head out on a couple of dates to finish up Eddie’s milestone, he only needed one more date. YAY, 1 more milestone to go to finish up this aspiration. +5 points

To finish up new years the family hung out together and then watched the midnight countdown making it a fun holiday for all.

With that we are going to call this an end to this update. Things are going pretty well and we will see what happens next time.

Otts Family – Eddie 05

Eddie 04 | Rules | Eddie 06

Welcome back to the Otts family where last time Alan Otts depleted all of our points that we had so far. Let’s see how he does this time.

When we check in on the family we find Julia napping in Ariana’s bed.

Alan, is surprising, sleeping in his bed. I think he’s trying to suck up now.

Ariana is eating some food while watching some TV.

Finally, Eddie is working on a digital painting. He did sadly lose some money on a job as the client would not like anything he submitted to them for the final drawing they wanted.

I forgot to mention it before, but Alan is a Wild child and he shows this in the middle of winter by stripping down and running outside. Luckily sister Ariana is there to watch over him and it doesn’t last long.

Alan then shows he’s really trying to suck up by going to go nap on his bed instead of passing out on the floor…..I’m watching you Alan.

Ariana acts like she might start on her aspiration. I doubt she’ll get far, but you just never know.

Alan also starts using the potty more….which is great for Eddie who really doesn’t like doing diapers.

Lots of snow meant some fun father/daughter bonding time for Eddie and Ariana.

Ariana continues her sucking up by shoveling snow. Never seen a kid to this before now.

Then I go inside and find this…….

DAMN IT ALAN!!!! -5 points

The family needs to move so Eddie keeps working on digital paintings. He needs to get going on his aspiration, all it will take are some more dates with his wife.

After breaking the sink, Ariana decides to do pushups in the kitchen water.

Oh, so sorry Eddie, I completely forgot that your birthday was here. I never saw Eddie get a moodlet from missing his birthday, he really seemed about as surprised as I was.

Father and son do a little bit of bonding. I’m still mad at you Alan, but you are kind of cute.

Apparently, Alan decided to suck up some after losing us more points earlier. He hasn’t passed out, and then he did he this…

Julia really is a very good ISBI wife and mom. She recognizes her son needs a bath and gives him one.

But then she does this….oh Julia….I’m sorry! I know you are pregnant and tired, but why??? -5 points

Ariana, you are well on your way to getting yourself an A. You are certainly doing your best to make up for your brother.

To give Julia a bit of a break we had Eddie take the kids ice skating. It was Winterfest so it was a great time to get out, and everyone seemed to have a good time.

Back at home Eddie reminds his wife that he really likes her by a kiss under the mistletoe. These two are very cute.

We then realize that Julia is showing her labor face. I didn’t notice the notification, but it’s time to send her to the hospital for the newest nooboo.

As Julia headed in, Eddie did his newest tradition of running into the hospital, getting on the computer and then panicking right outside the door.

The newest nooboo arrives with very little fuss. This might be the most successful birth I’ve seen the doctors perform so far. No hearts removed that I saw.

Meet our newest little boy named Arthur. Being born on Winterfest that seemed like a great name. +5 points

Back at home everyone is ready to open up their presents.

Everyone enjoyed their gifts, and while we never saw father winter, or whatever they call him, everyone had a successful holiday I think.

With a final look at Arthur, we will call this entry complete. Next time the family will be moving into a new house!
