We are back again with another update for you from the Comic’s. Last time we saw the birth of Oryx and Oriole, the newest members of this crazy family. We should see them grow into toddlers this update. Let’s take a quick look at our requirements and goals.

- Aspiration Family (25 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)
So we can see we finished another career, having 2 left, and another couple of aspirations, thanks to Olive, and therefore we have completed the 30 I was going for originally, and only have 2 BG aspirations left, Soulmate and Party Animal. Let’s see if we can complete any more goals this time around.
Lily throws a “come meet the new babies” party and sadly, right in the middle of the party, Grim’s warning for Olive come true. It’s time, after many years, for Olive to leave this mortal life and be with Fabiana. It does put a bit of a damper on the party, but they were also able to celebrate Olive.
Olive managed to complete 5 aspirations (Purveyor of Potions, Big Happy Family, Bodybuilder, Successful Lineage, and Master Chef), 1 career (Education), 6 skills maxed (Baking, Cooking, Dancing, Fitness, Gourmet Cooking, and Research and Debate.) She ended with about 22 traits. She will be missed, but she deserves her rest
Thankfully, the death didn’t ruin the party, and we finally got through a party that counted for Lily and she as finished her aspiration. Party Animal can be marked off the list, which means all we need now is Soulmate, which Rye and Analisa are working on.
During the party, however, this was a slightly terrifying site.
You cannot take him Grim He is new and not ready for you.
Grim: I’m not planning on taking him, yet. He will come with me in his own time.
Please put the baby down, you are terrifying him.
The cousins are growing up more and more. Orca’s final kids, the twins, are now young adults, and Misty is also an adult now. It’s amazing to think that all the kids are becoming adults, and soon we’ll start getting updates saying they are elders.
When Reed goes to work next he has a bit of a surprise. Our costuming girl is very pregnant. Feeling a little guilty for flirting with her he starts to apologize, but she assures him, she is single and he doesn’t have any reason to feel bad. That’s great for Reed, and he is excited for her. He loves his nephews and wouldn’t hate to have some of his own some day.
Reed’s newest acting gig consists of him being an officer but apparently there is also a fish man of some kind. The fish man is getting locked up. I do love all the sets, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch Reed act in all these scenes.
This update cracks me up. If you didn’t actually want the poof why did you send money for it?? Thankfully it didn’t actually mean anything at the end of it, but it was just funny.
Time for Lily to grow up into Elder. It’s hard to believe Lily is already an elder. She’s been amazing and I have loved having her still at home. She has become a lot like her aunt Oceana, and will be here and helping with the babies for as long as she can.
Right after Lily’s birthday it’s time for another couple of birthdays. The twins are now toddlers, and mom and dad start with walking training right away. These boys, I believe, are identical, much like their dad and uncle Reed.
Here are the boys after a bit of a make-over They are absolutely adorable, as I figured they would be. As Oriole’s are often a bit orange, Oriole is in the Orange color. Oryx is in the white/gray/brown colors. I decided to give them the same hair to check out how similar they are, and they are very similar.
Sadly, life means, while we celebrate birthdays and new life growing up, we also have others to say good-bye too. Oceana’s time with the family has come to an end. She was my initial pick for heiress that first generation and I’m so glad she was able to stay this long.
Oceana finished 6 aspirations (Spellcraft & Sorcery, Computer Whiz, Joke Star, Chief of Mischief, Master Mixologist, and Public Enemy), 2 careers (Tech Guru and Criminal), and maxed out 9 skills (Comedy, Dancing, DJ Mixing, Fitness, Knitting, Mischief, Mixology, Programming, Video Gaming.) She ended up with around 25 traits and did amazing. Oceana you will be greatly missed.
We updated the resting area for the family members a bit show pictures of who is who and prepare for the potential passing of Lily, Rye, and Analisa. Oceana and Olive are added in their respective spots.
The extended family is growing and changing some more. Wade finally married so he might have more kids, Lavender remarried a new husband, which might mean she will have more kids too. Finally both Misty and Birch have kids on the way, but no marriages yet.
Because we need Pet Training as a skill still, we decide to welcome a new member to the family. Meet little Basil. He is ADORABLE and I’m already in love with me. So excited to see him grow up.
Petunia seemed to get a little “stuck” at the house after the party for a bit, so it gave her time to get to know her nephews a little more, and spend some time with her brothers.
It’s time for WinterFest once again and family is invited over, presents are open, meals are had and it was a successful WinterFest all the way around. Even the twins had a chance to get presents from Father Winter.
The day after Winterfest it’s back to work for Reed. He’s getting to know much of the film and camera crew members on the various projects he works on and sits down to some food before heading up to the set.
This has to be one of the prettiest sets I’ve ever seen him work on. It’s just a lovely “matte” painting for the background and the petals and stuff falling in the scene just make it all lovely.
While Reed was filming his scene’s he finally maxed out his acting skill. That means he’s about ready to go out into the world himself, all he needs to finish up his the acting career, which he’s very close to completing as well.
We end this update with the nearly forgotten birthdays for both Reed and Rye. They are now both full adults in the world and it’s hard to believe we are getting this close to the end of the challenge. Just a couple more pregnancies to go and we do need to get Rye focused on writing so he can get the book written, but that will come. That is going to be it for now, and I hope to see you again in a couple of days!
