Coloure Wheel: Skilling Away

Birthdays! | Rules | Family Tree | Next Post

Hello and welcome back after a very long respite to the Coloure Wheel. The last time we were with the family Meg, Carlotta, and Christine all grew up into children, and Velma was born. While the 3 eldest are not triplets, due to a glitched grow up they might as well be. So let’s get back to the family.

We start with Meg and Christine playing chess for their aspirations. Both of these girls rolled to have Whiz Kid, and are working on their mental skills. Carlotta has Rambunctious Scamp.

Speaking of Carlotta, she is working on her homework. All three of these girls are working toward getting A’s, but they are only at B’s for now. I also realized I had apparently missed getting Carlotta into scouts, so she has that now too.

Garrett comes home with a new promotion and he is slowly moving through the writing career. He has almost maxed out his writing skill, so we are close to him finishing up his aspiration as well.

Charlene helps the twins with their aspiration by grabbing a couple of the children’s books written by Garrett and reads to the girls. After a couple of books the girls are at their next milestone.

Little Velma is also still here and being taken care of. Even the ghosts try and help out as they can. Velma will be growing up soon and I’m excited to see who she takes after.

Little Carlotta works on her typing. We need to take her to the playground and have her get playful and play on the equipment, but so far it hasn’t worked quite yet. So she is working on typing to build up her motor skills.

You gotta love Erratic sims. Charlene stops painting to make this face and tell herself a story. It’s quite a story apparently as she goes on for quite a while before finishing up her painting and going to bed.

Carlotta got in some quality time with her dad after a big snowstorm. They went out and made a fun snow pal together. It was a beautiful night, even though it was very cold as well.

Charlene is a very good mom to all of her kids. It’s almost time for little Velma’s birthday and so she takes time to snuggle her youngest and ensure she had everything she needed.

Then little Velma grew up and she got white hair like her mom. I do have a mod that allows the white hair to be genetic, but it doesn’t affect the eyebrows. If I do this challenge again I will probably pick a different color for Charlene’s hair.

After a bit of a makeover, we see how cute little Velma is. So she has her mom’s hair, but great-grandma’s red eyes, just like her older twin sisters. So we are continuing to have some fun genetic differences here.

For some reason, everyone changed into their outerwear, but that doesn’t stop little Velma and Charlene from spending some time playing with the dollhouse. Velma is super cute, and I think she shares a skin tone closer to her dad.

Then it’s time for Winterfest. For some reason, the girls are all still in their outerwear, but Garrett is wearing normal inside clothing. The family takes some time to decorate the tree and set up the presents. The family enjoys all the normal Winterfest fun.

Then we find out that Charlene is expecting again. There is still room for another set of twins, so there is a chance for that, but that means baby 5 is on the way. We are hoping to possibly get some boys into this family since it’s very female-heavy so far, but I am loving all the kids.

Charlene continues to take care of little Velma as she can, and Velma is working on her skills. She has maxed out her potty skill and is working on the other four. She is a pretty good little girl even though she is clingy.

Garrett works on his writing some more and has been writing a lot of children’s books lately. That is enough for him to max out his writing skill and Garrett completes his aspiration. Garrett next gets the Big Happy Family aspiration.

After Winterfest, the girls are back at school, but come home and get their homework completed. The focus lights help ensure both Meg and Christine complete another milestone of their aspiration. Now they need to finish up their metal stuff.

Charlene still gets happy to see her extended family who has been gone for a while now. If only all of these ghosts wouldn’t break everything all of the time. We are going to perform a remodel/update of the kitchen now that the family has some money coming in.

That is going to be all for this update. Next time we should see Velma grow into a child and see the new baby show up. I’m interested to see how this goes and I’m looking forward to seeing the girls grow up as well. Thanks for joining us! I know it has been a long time since an update, and it will probably be a bit before we get back here again, but it’s always fun to see them.

Coloure Wheel: Birthdays!

Age Up! | Rules | Family Tree | Skilling Away

Welcome back to the Coloure Wheel! The last we were with the Coloure family twins were born, and then glitched and didn’t age up at the right now, and another baby was added to the mix. Have you figured out my naming theme yet? At the end of play, we had 3 toddlers, essentially triplets.

Let’s start out by checking in with 4/5th of this family all in the same room. Charlene, the mom, is back watching her girls as they eat and sleep. In the yellow all the way at the end is Christine, then Meg is next eating, and napping is little Carlotta.

Garrett, our Coloure daddy, comes in to give little Carlotta a bath as everyone else starts working on their skills. Charlene maxed painting aspiration last time, as you may remember, and now is working on Super Parent.

The twins really do look a lot alike, but Carlotta has a much different look. I hope we keep going with unique looks like this throughout the 14 kids needed.

It seems like all these toddlers do it eat, but here is a fun look at them all working on their movement in order to come get breakfast. They were really skilling, I just apparently didn’t take pictures.

Aww….both Charlene and Garrett are good parents, and this is such a sweet picture of them with Carlotta. She specifically asked for a hug.

The girls are growing up in a few days, so it’s time to work on the next baby in the family. Maybe it will be a boy this time. There is room for it, so let’s hope we don’t get multiples again.

Another early morning for Charlene with Christine wanting food early, and Benny is out eating spoiled food. Well I guess if someone is going to eat it, a ghost is probably a better bet. Everyone also needs a bath.

So it was lotto day, and we didn’t win, of course, but I think this lotto might have been rigged. I’m sure he is VERY excited about his winnings because he REALLY needed the money.

Back from that time in the shower, success. Yes, Charlene, that is your husband and the father to all of your children, present and future. It’s cute she thought of him.

Why not working extra movement and gain some fun without having to go out in the rain, let’s dance! I think Meg was playing with the dollhouse, or maybe she was on the slide, and so these two were dancing to work on movement.

I just love this picture and I’ll let you take it all in. Carlotta on the potty, watching with pretty big interest, Garrett and Christine playing, and Meg’s upset face. It wasn’t because she wasn’t the one playing, but it works out so well here.

I love this painting. I think I’ll put it in the girls’ room when they get their kid’s bedroom. The house is a weird mishmash of rooms right now, but it’s fun anyway.

Ah, see, proof that at least Meg skilled. Her little face here is just too darn cute, and I love the little jacket she is wearing. I’m going to have to save these kids and use some of them later maybe.

Oh look, more skilling. I think at this point, Christine needed 1 thinking, Meg needed 1 imagination, and Carlotta needed 1 communication, 1 imagination, 1 thinking and 1 movement….although she was most of the way there with most of those.

Oh boy, we know what this face means, it’s time to head to the hospital for the next little Coloure baby. Do you think it will be a boy or a girl?

This is where Garrett has been for all 3 of the births. He runs in, sits down in that chair and waits. I wonder what he would do if I just didn’t bring him next time. Charlene was less than impressed. I don’t think she really wants to do this 10 more times (or maybe a little less if we get more multiples.)

Who guessed girl??!!! Meet Velma Coloure, our newest little addition. We won’t’ know what her coloring is like until she gets a little older.

Back home it’s time for bed. The girls will be bubbling when they wake up in the morning and we will have birthdays!!! For now, Charlene reads Meg to sleep (I believe she read Christine to sleep just a moment before) and Garrett gets Carlotta.

Happy Birthday, Christine and Meg! Christine grew up into the purple sweater and Meg grew up into the striped shirt. I’ll show you their updated make-overs in a moment.

Christine is very dirty and needs a bath, but she is also hungry so sits down with Garrett for some breakfast. You can get a peek at her make-over here.

Both girls join the scouts, then sit down and do their homework while Charlene eats some breakfast. Looks like Christine is still in need of a bath as well.

But first, we need to get little Carlotta her birthday cake. She bubbles only a few hours after her sister’s birthday days. It’s sort of fun having them slightly offset but still basically the same day. All 3 maxed all their toddler skills giving them Top-Notch Toddler trait.

So let’s end this update with a closer look at the girls. Christine is in glasses with the shorter hair. She rolled Bookworm and will be working on the Whiz Kid aspiration. Her twin Meg, rolled Mean. I found it funny she was Fussy before, which uses the same icon as mean. She is also going for Whiz Kid aspiration.

This is little Carlotta after her make-over. She is quite the pretty girl if I do say so myself. She rolled the Loves Outdoors trait and got the Rambunctious Scamp aspiration.

Next time we will see what Velma looks like as a toddler, have WinterFest, Garrett will drink his first youth potion, and we’ll see how the girls do in their aspirations, and maybe Garrett will finish his. He only needs to finish the last Writing skill point. Until next time!

Coloure Wheel: Age Up!

Get Together | Rules | Family Tree | Birthdays!

Welcome back to the Coloure Wheel. The last time we were with the Coloure family Charlene and Garrett worked to get together after the tragedy of losing all of Charlene’s family. They took their time, working on their aspirations, until they were strong enough to get married. They wasted no more time getting pregnant.

With that little recap out of the way let’s get to seeing what this new baby will look like in the Coloure Wheel of this family. Hehe, sorry, couldn’t help it.

Charlene is big on salads, or rather I am because I don’t want to set this tiny house on fire. Charlene is getting better and better at cooking though, so eventually we’ll let her make cooked food.

The pregnancy progresses without any issues. Charlene spends most of her time at the easel painting, and Garrett is working on book after book. All the small paintings around the walls were painted by Charlene.

The ghosts are very active in the house, haunting in pairs usually every night. It does mean we fix a LOT of plumbing every morning, but it’s still nice to have their help in other ways.

Charlene is Erratic and that comes out in multiple ways. Garrett is fairly used to it, so as she pretends to be a vampire he just ignores it. She goes right back to eating her breakfast and chatting normally.

The next day is Love Day, and it just so happens the Romance Festival corresponds to the same day. So gifts are exchanged, aspirations (or promotion for Garrett) are worked on, and a small trip together to the Romance Festival makes it a fun day for them both.

Gabe and Benny are out tonight, that would be Charlene’s dad and grandpa. It’s always so funny how ghosts eat our food, although it can also be irritating, unless it was poor quality food.

That look can only mean one thing. We found a cute nursery in the “rooms” section and went ahead and built it. We had enough money finally from all the paintings and books. So now it’s time to head to the hospital.

Everything at the hospital goes as we would expect, and the doc even seemed to know what he was doing. That’s a plus, since we were surprised by the notification we had not 1, but 2 baby girls.

Yep, that’s right. This is first born Christine, which Charlene grabbed right away, but Meg is also here as well. Welp, there go some points right off the bat. I have nothing that should have triggered twins, but that’s ok.

The toddler work is split between Garrett and Charlene, which is good so they both gain some parenting skill. Not that they shouldn’t both max it with the required 14 kids they will have, but still.

Nyla, Charlene’s mother attempts to be “helpful” by moping after breaking the toilet, sink, and shower. Charlene gets a head start on fixing things, especially as she needs to use it.

This is a great step for Garrett, and the extra money is very helpful. Garrett at least is starting as our parent to work outside of the house, but once he’s maxed this career we might switch it up and let Charlene do it.

Charlene starts working on a confident painting, and you can see the added hallway. The door you are seeing leads to the nursery. We will be adding a toddler room soon as well.

Knowing they have 14 to get through, Charlene proposes getting started on a new baby and Garrett readily accepts this proposal. We will hoping for no more twins for a while though!

We have success. Baby #3 is on the way. Doesn’t Charlene look thrilled here. She heads off to let the daddy know.

He also looks ecstatic to be having more kids. Haha, these sims and their faces. They actually both looked very happy right after these pictures were taken, it just made me laugh.

Great-Great Grandpa Asher goes in to look after his great-great grand babies. I believe this is Meg, but it’s nearly impossible to tell as I didn’t make note of bassinet color.

That erratic trait is coming out again, pretty strongly. One of Garrett’s book of poems is sitting there on the counter. I have had him write a little bit of everything.

Ghostly help again, this time grandpa Gabe and great-great grandma Maya are the ones out shushing the babies. They do actually both manage to take care of each of them, which is a big help to the parents.

Just a small picture to show that Charlene is almost through her first aspiration. All she needs is to finish maxing the painting skill. Garrett still has one more milestone after his current one, but he is also working hard.

In anticipation for the twins to become toddlers we bought a couple of high chairs, and extended the living/dinning/kitchen are of the house. It was about here that I realized it felt like it had been much longer than 3 days since we had the twins. I went and looked and they has 2 days before growing up. Weird….we are in our 3rd trimester with the new baby.

Asher is out again and Charlene is happy to have someone to talk to. She is pretty big again and we are ready for the twins to grow up. I’m starting to think they glitched because I don’t even remember them having an announcement.

Oh boy, I know that face. Time to head to the hospital again, with the twins still as babies. We are going to need another bassinet.

The same doctor is back, which is great, since he did a good job last time. This time we only have a single baby. It’s once again a little girl and she is named Carlotta.

Back at home, while waiting to see if the twins grow up on the day the calendar shows their birthday being, Charlene manages to complete her aspiration. Way to go Charlene. She chooses to work on Super Parent next.

Garrett works on getting the bathroom mopped up, and Saturday comes and goes without the twins growing up. Their sister, Carlotta is set as the birthday for tomorrow. I think they glitched. I tried resetting them and we will see what happens.

Garrett works on another book, he’s trying to finish up his best sellers needed, which he does. He now just needs to let the royalties add up a little more and finish maxing his writing skill.

Finally, about 1/2 way through Sunday, the twins spin out of their bassinets and become toddlers. They both clearly have their dad’s red hair, but I cannot tell their eyes. Let’s go give them a bit of a make-over and check it out.

On the left is Christine, she rolled the Clingy trait, and she has her daddy’s red hair, but her great-grandma’s red eyes (Asher started the red eyes, and passed them onto Amie.) On the right we have Meg, and she has the same coloring. In fact I think these two might be identical. She rolled the Fussy trait.

These two begin to play with the dollhouse, but it’s late they are tired as are their parents. It’s going to be a quick play time with night night right away.

Charlene goes to bed and let’s Garrett read the girls to sleep in their new toddler room, in their new toddler beds. Both girls are super cute, and that was where I was going to end this entry……

But as Garrett went toward bed, Carlotta spun out of her bassinet. So we are basically going to have triplet toddlers…..weeee.

This is Carlotta after a bit of a make-over. She obviously has her daddy’s purple eyes, but her hair is all great-great grandma Maya’s. The blonde was only ever seen in the family tree through her. With that we will end this entry, but I hope you enjoyed the toddlers.


Painting Aspiration (Charlene): +10 points
Twins: -10 points

TOTAL: 0 Points

I will count the color points upon their growing up, but current each of them with get +5 points (2 dad’s hair, 1 dad’s eyes) and then and additional 100 points (50 points from 2 Gen B eyes, and 50 for 1 Gen A’s hair.) So, at this moment 115 points will be awarded for the genetics upon their YA birthdays.
