Post 3.12 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 4.01

Hello and welcome back to another update for the Comic Summer. We are down to a couple of updates left. I’m not sure if we’ll have 3 or 4 updates left, but we are close. So last time we announced that Oriole was the final heir of the challenge. So let’s look at our final requirements:

  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family

Generation Three Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (9 of 9)
  • Workaholics (10 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (40 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So I just removed the “on-going” challenges from the second generations requirements, and moved them down to the final generation requirements. We have already marked off the being a spellcaster and having ancient bloodline as Oriole has had those since birth. Let’s get going.

We start with our girls becoming best friends, which isn’t terribly hard to do with twins, and gets us closer to finishing up Nerine’s social butterfly aspiration. It’s so nice to have twins who are friends with each other for this aspiration.

It’s another homework and journaling party for the kids. Analisa needs one of the kids to get 3 positive character traits, so we are taking the kids volunteering and writing in journals whenever we can.

Then it’s a super sad evening as our loyal and wonderful dog, Basil, passes into the next life. We will miss you Basil, Analisa especially!!! It was too soon!

We set up a special table on the balcony upstairs with the rest or our urns. Basil was a wonderful dog and I know the family is going to miss him terribly.

Since Nerine needs to make friends with additional adults we invite over members of the family. Rose heads up stairs and talks with Nerine and you can see in the background one of the family scrapbook walls.

It’s time again for some additional extended family updated, and we have quite a few this time. Cyprus and Glen are Wade’s oldest sons and they are both going to have babies for their own. Then Birch finally gets married, and Daisy, whom I had figured was going to be single all her life, married her long time roommate Vincent Dreamer.

Nerine continues to try and make friends with the family members who are over. This time it’s Jay and Petunia. She doesn’t quite become friends with either of them, but she is getting close.

It’s back to Winterfest once again and the family gathers to celebrate. They share a grand meal cooked by Analisa, Nerine works on her friendship with Jay and presents are opened. It’s a good time by all.

That evening the boys head out to go finish and try to finish up their outdoor adventure badges. It does finally work and both boys finish up their badges and reach Llamacorn Scout.

Sadly, that evening we find out that Petunia has passed away. Then a couple of our kids are teens, Buck is Misty’s son, and Aspen is Birch’s daughter.

Then we finally get notice that Rye has completed our final aspiration. He achieved the Soulmate goals and we are not just counting down until the girls turn into young adults.

We have a little ways to go with that though, and Pine sort so surprises up by growing up his the toddlers bedroom without fanfare. Sorry Pine. Here he is after his make-over. He obviously never got through a child aspiration, but he gets Child of the Ocean trait, and Friend of the animals as an aspiration.

Additionally updates are here again, this time Birch’s twin Bay is getting married, Kyra and Jay welcome a new little girl named Dove, Cherish and Glen welcome a little boy name Stratus, and Hope, Reed’s wife, has turned into an elder.

Additional time with multiple members of the expanded family get Nerine through more of her social butterfly aspiration. She is also getting to know Blade and Barley, Wade’s youngest two kids with his wife. Then she traveled to meet and get to know Tulip and Thyme.

Thankfully shortly after getting home Nerine finishes up her aspiration by finishing up her social skill. She next chooses the go for Whiz Kid, and she might have enough time to complete it.

Oriole heads to the magic realm again and while he is there we decide to go ahead and put together one of the relics, and then use one on someone in the next room. This completes one of the requirements for him.

It’s New Years again and Reed comes over to celebrate with the family. Everyone makes their resolutions and they enjoy the new years programs on television. It was a good night for the family and it’s hard to believe there is another year down.

After the new year turns over we get a visit from our lovely boy Basil. Oryx was happy to see Basil and spent some good time petting him and playing with him in his ghost form.

Time for our final update about the extended family for this update and this time Rose and her husband are expecting, Birch and his new wife are expending, and finally little Dove, Jay’s daughter is a toddler now.

It’s time for the much anticipated birthdays that will spell the final transition to the final generation’s goals for this challenge. After blowing out the candles, and the family did throw a bit of a party, Oriole and Oryx are now young adults. Oryx gets the final traits of Active, Responsible, Emotional Control, and Compassionate. Oriole gets his traits Perfectionist and Responsible.

We are going to get ready too this update but first we will go through all the extended family members we have added or who grew up this time. First up we have the newest baby mama’s and spouses. Anita Dolan is Glen’s newest baby mama, and Maren Farr is Cyprus’. Next to them is Birch’s wife Lucille Kealoha, and of course Daisy’s husband Vincent Dreamer.

On the last two rows are all of the kids. We have Buck Comic, Misty’s son, Aspen, Birch’s daughter, then is Lark, Rose’s son, and finally Barley and then Birch, which are Wade’s twins. On the bottom row we have Wasp, Jay’s son, Cotton is next in purple, and is Reed’s son. Our final three toddlers are Robin, Cyprus’ eldest, Stratus, Glen’s eldest, and finally Dove, Jay’s youngest.

Thanks for joining us for anything update and we will be back again soon with what might be the final update or two. If you want more details about the extended family I suggest checking out the family tree below.

Well it’s been quite the break for me again, so it is time to get this post out there and to give you the results of the final heir poll so you know who is taking over the final few updates of this challenge. So, let’s first get to the results.

So just who became heir?

Was it Oryx…

…?

Or perhaps Oriole…

…?

Maybe Pine…

…?

Or was it Nerine…

…?

Could it be Nyala…

…?

The heir is…

Oriole Comic!!

Congrats to Oriole, who was a no-brainier favorite. This vote wasn’t even really close and I will show you the table in a second. That mean we will end this challenge with a male heir and Oriole will have the final “challenges” to complete.

This is the table of results. Oryx had gotten no votes, and since it was clear who was going to win, I threw him a vote just for fun. I was really torn between wanting one of the girls or Oriole so I’m super happy with this choice.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (9 of 9)
  • Workaholics (9 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (39 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So, we are down to needing pictures taken this generation and then the final few things from Rye (career, skill, and aspiration.) We will have a handful of things for Oriole to do when he’s a YA, but for now let’s see how far we get.

We start with working on badges with Oryx. He didn’t get the young scientist badge as a child, so it’s time to focus on the last badges in his teen years.

Analisa works on teaching Nerine either to say sorry or to say thank you. I can’t remember which, but she is such a god mom.

Rye finally maxes out the career for Engineering. I had too look up if it went beyond 10, but from what I can see it doesn’t, and it mentions in the description that we’ve reached the pinnacle, so I’m marking it off.

Analisa can now go into Full Parent mode. A mode I will likely never use again, but she needed to reach it once for the Super Parent aspiration, and so we did.

Multi-tasking parenting, as I believe Oryx was asking for advise, while eating and mom was trying to get the twins to sleep. It’s almost their birthday and I am so ready to not have toddlers anymore.

Our first of many family updates to come. Ivy grows too a child, Wasp too a toddler, and Hope and Reed welcome a little boy named Cotton.

We then get to say, Happy HarvestFest from the Comic’s. It’s a busy day with the twins taking care of the younger twins, cooking of the grand meal, eating of the grand meal and poor Basil getting surrounded by gnomes.

We also have finally maxed out the final skill for this challenge. Rye only needs to finish up the aspiration and we will have completed all of our Super Mini-Challenges. I did not think we were going to make it there for a bit!

Cake pictures means it’s time for the girls to grow into children. Their brother Pine is there too cheer them on while daddy Rye helps them blow out the candles.

It maybe not be the blow outs the family have had in the past, but the kids all sit down to play a video game together to celebrate no more toddlers in the house! It’s a fun day.

Here are the girls after make-overs. Nyala is first, in the yellow with the longer hair. She got Mean as her first trait. Nerine is in the pink and she got Goofball for her first. Both girls got Top-Notch Toddler and Nyala is going for artistic prodigy while Nerine is going for Social Butterfly.

We have additional birthdays happening in the rest of the family too. Birch and Bay are Orca’s sons, and they are adults, Glen is Wade’s son and he’s an YA and so is Lavender’s son Hawk, and finally Oak, who is Bay’s youngest is a child.

All of the current generation all together and most of them even sitting at the same time. It’s a rare occasion. Looks like some homework, eating, socializing, and cleaning are all taking place.

Since we needed outdoor adventure badge points the kids all went to Windenburg to fish. None of them finish this trip, but it’s done before too much longer within the next day or so.

It’s time to get the boys pictures up on the family scrapbook walls so pictures are taken. The final kids will get their pictures taken when they become teens themselves.

So both boys have the Purveyor of Potions aspiration, if you didn’t remember that, which I really didn’t, and so that requires a trip to the magical realm. While there the boys, and Rye, searched for tomes they don’t already have at home, bought some supplies, and practiced potion making.

Back at home all of the kids come home from a scouts meeting and start to write in their journals. They are all fairly stressed out and tense kids for some reason, so we spend a lot of time journaling.

Another evening and that means another set of family updates as well. We have Jay having a baby with his wife, Cyprus (Wade’s oldest) and Glen (Wade’s second oldest) are also having kids, and Cotton, Reed’s son is now a cute toddler!

It is obviously a Monday as it’s school project day so all the kids work outside to finish their projects while enjoying the evening on the island. It really is pretty on this island.

It’s also now time for Rye to become an elder. Hard to believe it’s already time for him to be “old” now. We still need to finish up the aspiration, but Rye has done really well as the final father of this challenge.

As we get ready to end this particular update, which I knew I was hoping to get all the way through the teen years, feels like a better place to stop, we have a final set of family updates. Kellie, Misty, and Reed all grow into elders as well. Lark, Barley, and Blade are all now children. I suggest looking at the Family Tree link below if you want more info.

We don’t have a ton of people to look at from the extended family this time, but let’s go through it. First up we have Keira Ishikawa who is Cyprus’ baby mama. Cyprus is Orca’s grandson. Next is Cherish Rock, who is Glen’s baby mama. Glen is Cyprus’ brother. Finally on the top we have Lake, who is Petunia’s oldest. Shane Perez is the first on the bottom row, and he is Rose’s new husband. Then we have 3 kids. First is Ivy and then her half brother Oak, Bay’s youngest two, and then Wasp, Jay’s son.

All right that is going to be all we do for now. Thanks for joining me and we will be through this challenge soon I think and I just need to get it blogged.

Post 3.10 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 3.12

Hello, welcome back, I’m a little late in getting this posted today, but I’m excited too bring you what is likely the next to last update for this generation! We are so so so very close to being done and I’m excited to see how it ends!

  • Tricks of the Trade (39 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So we checked off all but the last career, last skill, and last aspiration….all of which Rye is working on right now. Rye does still need to write a book, and we need to finish up pictures as the kids get older, but we are close. So let’s check in.

I decided to do something kind of fun for my family scrapbook walls. I put a shelf with a flower in a vase commemorating the heir/ess color for that generation and then placed the book they wrote on the shelf. Now, there is nothing to stop someone from carrying one off, and that has happened, but I just usually put it back. I think it makes a pretty memorial.

We start with our three boys of this generation. Will one of them win the heir poll? There is one more day (or a handful of hours depending on how quickly I get this written up, in order to vote, so if you haven’t yet, we are all for more votes.

In order to get through the herbalism, Rye is going to need more forest plants, so he goes ahead and plants the ones we brought home Garden bot is right there to tend them. My garden bot disappeared at some point though, as did cleaning bot and I only found the “pile” for one of them.

Rye sits down to write his portion of the family Anthology and while he broke the computer, we just ended up replacing it so he could get it done. It gets added to his shelf and that is one more thing done.

Sadly we get the news that Lavender had passed away. That will make the family very sad for quite a while. She added one son to the extended family.

The final twins, the N-twins, are just too adorable. I really do love these two girls, but the sadness of the whole family, even though we are drinking potions and stuff are not helping these two get their skills. We keep having lots of deaths.

Our lovely Analisa sits down with her babies and reads them a story. Not only does this give them a chance to eat and skill at the same time, but gives Analisa some time with her baby girls.

Bubbles, I have discovered, is bath time. So when I see the girls asking for bubbles I know where the parents are headed. They are usually clean kids, but this is also not helping their skills any. We might have another set of non-skilled toddlers on our hands.

But really, can we be too upset about them? They are so cute in their matching dresses and the sunset outside is absolutely lovely over our flock of flamingos.

I want Basil in real life. He helps his boys feel better after yet another set of deaths rock the family. Not family, but plenty of friends are passing at this point. I’m trying to get the boys through the artistic prodigy but this family is just a mess right now.

We get a lot of extended family updates in a row. Petunia grows into a elder, Lark is Rose’s son and is now a toddler, as are Barley and Blade. Reed is also expecting his first child with his wife.

I found this picture, and scenario kind of funny. We have both Fabiana (in the front) and Desiree out (you can barley make her out in front of the plants). Fabiana is busy mourning Desiree, and Desiree is mourning Lily.

Monday’s mean school projects and both Analisa and Rye helps their eldest boys with them the first night, because we can control them. I’m hoping Analisa will help Pine with his.

Analisa and Rye continue to work on his aspiration and take the rocket for a little fun together. I find the hearts coming out as the rocket takes off pretty fun.

Another set of family updates later and we learn that Jay and Kyra have a little boy named Wasp, Thyme and Tulip are children, as are Eagle and Elm. So many birthdays!

Basil grows into an elder dog and is feeling a little bit neglected. Analisa used to spend all day with him, but with the twins we’ve had our hands full taking care of everyone.

Basil doesn’t feel down for long though as the boys love Basil too and love to play with him and pet him. Before long Basil feels much better and adores his whole family. He’s such a good boy!

It’s finally time for our boys to grow up and I realized, in the poll that I switched the colors on boys. Initially I thought I labeled them wrong, but it was just the color that was off. So this is Oryx who grows up first.

Then it was Oriole’s turn. Both boys are handsome and they still look VERY similar, although their eyebrows are different, which is where I realized I colored them wrong. Both boys actually grew up into their respective colors, which helped.

So here they are as teens. Oriole in the orange, and Oryx in the white (with orange stripes). Oriole added Bro, and Oryx got Hates Children, so this will be a fun house for him. They both are going to do Purveyor of Potions to knock out nature aspirations for both just in case.

To wrap up this update we have our extended family photo album. We start with Bay’s twins, this is Elm and then next to him is his twin brother Eagle. The next two are also twins, this is Thyme and Tulip, Petunia’s kids. On the second line we have yet another set of twins, this time Wade’s boys, Blade followed by Barley. Finally we have 2 boys that are only cousins (lots of twins this generation.) First is Bay’s youngest boy (Elm and Eagle’s half brother) Oak Fyres. Finally, looking very much like his cousin Barley is Rose’s son Lark.

Thanks for joining us again and we might get all the way through teen year next time or we might split it into two, we’ll see what happens. Until next time, thanks for reading!

Post 3.09 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 3.11

Hello and welcome back! We are going to have our final heir poll at the end of this update and I hope you are excited to vote! I am excited to see who you pick so I can get through this challenge and be done!! Let’s take a very fast look at our goals.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (8 of 9)
  • Workaholics (9 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (37 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So nothing really changed from the last update, but Rye does have the required writing skill to do his book and we should be wrapping up some skills this update, so let’s hop in. This is going to be a slightly longer update, so I hope you won’t mind!

We start with Rye bathing Basil, who is still a terrific dog and is still around. Analisa gives him lots of love and hugs, and training. He’s just the best dog but had gotten a bit dirty.

You may or may not remember that Petunia had twins a couple of updates back, and now they are toddlers, Tulip and Thyme. Maura Fyres is one of Bay Comic’s girls, and she gave him another little boy named Oak.

The final baby, Baby N, is on it’s way and none too soon either since Rye is preparing a trip to the forest to gather up plants for his herbalism skill. This is the last skill we need to get high levels. So Analisa is going to have to go through most of this pregnancy alone.

This is apparently the only picture of Rye I have in the forest, where he is hanging out with the hermit from the woods. He manages to find all but one of the plants, gets all but one of those identified and learned the special herbalism concoction from the hermit. Then we headed home.

Where we find a VERY pregnant Analisa. She has kept working with Basil, and has been busy teaching Pine some of his skills so she can get her parenting maxed out. Which she does finally learn to do. That should help with the baby or babies when they come. If tradition holds, Analisa should have twins again.

Loyal Basil, never far from his favorite sims. If it isn’t Analisa it’s one of the O-twins. He really seems to love this family and I adore having him as a dog. He is full trained at this point, so Analisa just needs to practice with him a little more to max her skill.

After the trip to the forest Rye focuses on completing his robotics skill and thus, hopefully, getting the final promotion in his career. Oceana is out again “helping” Rye with his craft. Before long, however, we not only have a good quality cleaning bot, but robotics has been maxed!

Another night another extended family update. Now Aspen and Buck (Birch and Misty’s kids) are children and Cyprus (Wade’s eldest) is a YA and might be ready to start a family of his own soon.

Oceana still likes to dance and Oriole practices his dance moves with his aunt. Rye works on reading up a little more on herbalism so he can hopefully concoct enough herbal remedies to finish that skill.

The final birth is finally here, and while Analisa goes through the pains of labor we head to the hospital, where amazingly, the same person who delivered Oryx and Oriole is the same person to deliver these final babies. Yes, babies, it’s a set of twin girls!

Welcome to the challenge little Nyala and little Nerine. Analisa is happy to be done with that pregnancy and she is ready to take care of these last two little babies for this challenge!

Back at home, the flamingo flock has been added to with the final flamingo’s of the challenge It’s quite a flock for sure, but I’m glad there won’t be any more added, this is plenty!

We also get one final look of Rye being an adorable toddler because it’s almost his birthday. This is the first toddler I’ve had play on the chair and it’s so cute!

But as I said, it was birthday time. Analisa baked up a cake and then had to go tend to the N-twins while Rye brought little Pine to the cake. He grows up very handsome and looks different from his brothers. He went from Independent to Lazy and got Social Butterfly. He did not even get to Happy Toddler, and won’t complete his aspiration since he’s a Bad Apple and there is no way I’m getting through Social Butterfly without control.

He quickly goes over and hangs out with one of his older brothers while they finish up the motor skill. Both Oriole and Oryx finish up the Rambunctious Scamp aspiration and get the Artistic Prodigy aspiration added next.

We have a few more updates from the extended family. Jay is expecting a new baby with his wife Kyra, and then 3 more babies were added to the family. Rose had a little boy, and Kellie (Wade’s wife) added twins.

Analisa, with just a little additional work with Basil has mastered our next to last skill, Pet Training. We have one skill left to finish and that is herbalism, but that is going to take up a bit more time.

Analisa celebrates her accomplishments with her husband.

Ok you too, be careful with that. The last time that happened, the two behind you happened.

Analisa: You worry too much, no more babies for us.

Rye: Yeah, but don’t expect me to keep my hands off my wife.

Jumping slightly forward in time and it’s time for the final babies to grow into toddlers. It’s hard to believe we are this close to being done. Once the heir poll ends we will have until these 2 grow into YA or Adults (depending on who gets chosen) to complete the final goals.

Little Nyala, held by her daddy, and little Nerine in Analisa’s arms grow up together. They are not identical, but they are very similar. Both of them end up rolling silly as their trait as toddlers. That should be fun. Nerine is a spellcaster, but Nyala is not sadly. So while it’s easy enough to change her, that means Pine and Nyala are not at the top of the heir poll wish list.

Analisa takes one of the babies down to play in the kiddie pool. I love this thing, it’s so cute! It makes them both playful. After that is done we got do some make-overs.

Here are the final two kids for this generation. Nerine, which is a flower that can range from white to crimson gets pink for her color, and Nyala is an antelope type creature and therefore gets brown and sometimes orange for hers. I thin they are adorable!

Both girls get hats like their mom for warm weather outfits, and we get started on potty training right away. However, this update is getting long enough and we still need to do an heir poll, so that will be it for the family. I know you don’t get to know Nyala and Nerine much before the poll, but this is really just about who carries us to the end.

Before that, however, let’s look really quick at the extended family updates.

We start with Aspen, the daughter of Birch and Kayla. Then we have Buck, Misty’s son. Last on the top row is Ivy, Bay’s only daughter so far. On the bottom row are Bay’s twin son’s (so brothers to Ivy) Elm and then Eagle. They have a different mother than Ivy and are very close in age. The final two adorable kids are Petunia’s twins with her husband, Thyme and Tulip. They are super cute.

And to wrap up everything this time we have the promised heir poll. So who will take us over the finish line of this challenge? To recap what they will need to do, they will need to write a book, create a relic and use it on someone outside the household, be a spell caster, and complete a nature aspiration.

So your choices are, starting on the left:

  • Oryx Comic (Orange): Spellcaster, Self-Assured, Active, Hates Children
  • Oriole Comic (White): Spellcaster, Outgoing, Bro, Perfectionist
  • Pine Comic (Gray): Bad Apple, Non-spellcaster, Lazy, Hates Children*, Child of the Ocean*
  • Nyala Comic (Brown): Non-spellcaster, Mean*, Snob*, Genius*
  • Nerine Comic (Pink): Spellcaster, Goofball*, Materialistic*, Squeamish*

So my current choice would be either Oryx or Oriole as they can get their goals done before their sisters are YA and that would end the challenge a little earlier. Since I’m already done with basically all of the goals this would be ideal, but I love the girls too and will abide by either decision.

Thanks for voting for the final heir, we are that much closer to being done with this challenge and the poll will close on the morning of the 26th, so get your votes it!

Post 3.08 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 3.10

Welcome back once again to the Comic’s! We are one pregnancy away from seeing the final generation of this challenge born and we will need to have one more heir poll so I know who needs to right the final book, build the final relic, and complete a final nature aspiration. That is still another update away more than likely, so let’s get to looking at our goals yet again.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (8 of 9)
  • Workaholics (9 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (37 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So, as you can see, we are down to writing books and finishing up pictures, and need 1 pregnancy, 1 career, 1 aspiration, and 3 skills mastered still. So I’m very close to meeting all these goals. Last time we met Pine and are ready to have Reed move out to make room for a final baby. So let’s get to it!

We will start with some updates from the extended family. Lavender is now an elder, which means she will only have the one child, Hawk, even though she just married Ellis. Bay is having a baby of his own, which means almost all of Orca’s children will have their own children now, Rose being the final exception.

I apparently missed getting grow up pictures for the O-twins. I was working so hard to finish up the final skills and the boys didn’t end up getting a cake. We did bake a cake, but right before the final skill was learned they grew up on their own. So Oriole keeps his orange color and replaced Wild with Outgoing for his trait. He did manage to get Top-Notch Toddler. His twin, Oryx, kept a white/brown color scheme and only got to Happy Toddler, just missing that final thinking skill. He replaced his Charmer trait with Self-Assured and both boys rolled Rambunctious Scamp as their first aspiration.

During this time Analisa has gotten to level 9 of parenting and hugs away a lot of sadness or frustration from her kids. I’m so close to having super efficient parenting, which I’m excited for for the final baby. We also have moved Reed out of the house, and he is on his own and at the mercy of MCCC now.

I had no idea that dogs could go swimming and it’s adorable too watch him run down to the beach with the boys to go swimming. Both of the boys are working on their motor skills and having the ocean right there is a great for keeping them active.

Clearly I was busy doing lots of other things while baby Pine was a baby because it’s time for him to grow into a toddler. I have to remember that Pine is the bad apple and therefore cannot direct him. He is a cutie though!

After a bit of a make-over here is what Pine looks like. His color, as should be obvious by his name, is dark green. Pine gets the Independent trait, which is great for him as a bad apple as he’ll be doing a lot on his own.

Petunia has twins, a boy and a girl, which is super fun. I’m hoping maybe we can get Pine and these two together as I have never had a chance to do a toddler play date. Bay is also going to have another baby, however, it’s with a different woman then it was last time. So far he doesn’t seem interested in getting married.

It’s Love Day again and so Analisa and Rye head out to the Sulani beach to hang out together and spend some time away from the house. This gives us another gold date, and I believe this gives us all the dates we need for Soulmate, and we just need them to do more romantic interactions.

Little Pine is very cute, and he is good at asking for things he needs. This is good since I can’t control him myself, so he gets fed in the high chair more often then most of the other kids in this family.

She hasn’t been seen a lot lately, but sadly Lily tells us it’s time for her to go. It’s hard to believe that Lily is already passing, especially as Rye is still only and adult, but there was a large age gap between Lily and Lavender and Rye and Reed. Autumn and Desiree were both out to mourn the passing of their granddaughter.

With the entire family sad about the passing of Lily we also get notice of a couple of birthdays. Rose, one of Orca’s daughter, is now an adult while Hawk, Lavender’s son, is now a teen.

Since the boys both need to play on a playground, that weekend we take them to a park and let them play. It takes a bit, as the family was still fighting some sadness over Lily’s death, but both boys reach that initial milestone.

Analisa and Rye watch their current youngest as he sleeps and discuss the final pregnancy.

Rye: Should we try soon?? I know he’s still a toddler, but I still need to head into the forest.

Analisa: I think we should. We want one more, and the watcher says we need one more. We have plenty of room.

While the couple heads off to go try for another baby, the rest of the family is also expanding Wade and his wife are expecting, and Rose, the only one of Orca’s kids up until now to not have kids, is also expecting.

It’s not just babies happening either. Jay gets married, and if she looks familiar it’s because she is also Birch’s baby mama. That’s right, Jay married his cousins girl. I don’t know if they were still together, but Jay will help raise Birch’s daughter Aspen. Then both Reed and Misty get married as well.

As we prepare to see if the final babies for this generation are on their way, it’s first time for Analisa to age up into a full adult. Rye, of course, has been here for a while already, and Oceana was out to haunt tonight as well.

As we prepare to wrap up this entry, and be prepared for an heir poll at the end of the next update, we have a look at the latest extended family portraits. This is almost becoming a tradition at this point with how many members there are. If you want more details on these guys check out the family tree link. I try to keep it updated to where I am, but there also might be a few spoilers for the extended family if you care.

Ok, from the top left we have a grown up Hawk, Lavender’s son, next to him is Glen, Wade’s son, and finally we have little Buck Comic, who is Misty’s son with Goopy. Finally, in the top row, we start our spouse/partner list with Maura Fyres, one of Bay’s multiple lovers. First on the second row is another of Bay’s girls, Ariella Padilla, and the final of Bay’s baby mama’s is next to her, Fabiana Montes. Otto Jang is next, and he is Rose’s current partner as we saw above, Maverick Campbell is next, who we just got the notice married Misty, and finally it’s Reed’s new wife Hope Figuera.

That is going to be it for this update. As I mentioned before, be prepared for a final heir poll next update as we should have all the kids at that point and I need to know who will write the final books and piece together the final relic of the challenge. For now, thanks for reading and hope to have you again next time!

We are back with another update. I’m feeling like I’m starting to loose steam on this challenge and really want to be done with it, so hopefully we will be done by the end of the month, but I don’t know if we will. Still, we are getting close, so let’s take a look and our goals.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (7 of 9)
  • Workaholics (8 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (37 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)


So last time you may remember that we watched the final O-twins grow up into toddlers, Reed worked on acting and maxed the skill, Olive and Oceana moved into the other realm, and Lily became an elder while her brothers became adults. The twins do have Ancient Bloodline, and we finished anther skill and aspiration. Let’s check in now.

We start with a sweet look at the boys, their dad, and little puppy Basil. Rye is working his way through some magic books because he’s getting stronger in magic, but we haven’t been very focused on his magic abilities yet.

These two sit down and watch a movie together. They are very cute and very sweet with each other. I adore them and need to get working on the soulmate aspiration a little bit more, although they just need to start going on dates.

Our Basil grew up into a full sized dog, and oh isn’t he just the sweetest??!!! I love him, he looks so soft and fluffy! I want a dog in RL, but sims dogs will have to do for now. Reed watches him grow up big and strong.

Basil is well taken care of in this family and he has decided he LOVES the toilet. I don’t know what it is with my sim pets but Jill from the Otts ISBI also loved the toilet. Analisa will be the one working on training him, and I find it adorable that toddlers can “imitate” a dog. Basil is one very good dog!

Oriole is a cutie, but a bit of a handful. I have been so busy with Reed’s acting and Basil’s training I have not done a good job of focusing on the twins and their skills. This needs to change or they won’t get through their skills and it will make it harder on them later in life.

Analisa diligently reads the boys to bed. She needs to discipline them now for her aspiration, and hopefully we will be able to get that done within her time as a parent. It shouldn’t be that hard, and she’s building up more and more parenting skills. I’d love to have the super efficient baby care for the final babies.

Exciting news, the newest baby, baby P, is on it’s way, so likely no super efficient parenting for this baby. This leaves us with one final pregnancy after this, and raising them up and then this challenge is done. We still have some skills to work on maxing, but overall we are so very close!

It’s new years and that means everyone makes some resolutions, watches the count down and are ready for a new year for the family. This year will bring more babies and hopefully we only have a sim year or two left in this challenge! The family has worked hard!

Some extended family news for the new year as well, two more little Comic’s (or at least from the Comic’s members) were born. Misty had a boy, and Kyra, who got pregnant by Birch last update, had a little girl.

I really like these two and would like for MCCC to put them together once Reed is out of the house, but we’ll see what happens. He manages to steal a kiss from the girl who does his wardrobe, but maybe she doesn’t think he’s serious. *Spoiler* MCCC married her off before he moved into the neighborhood. 😦

Today was a Game of Thrones-esk performance. Giving speeches on balconies, having sword fights, and exchanging words in the great hall. It’s just too much fun to watch all this.

But it led to Reed’s final promotion. That gives us another job down, and all we need is for Rye to finish up his and we’ve completed 10 careers! Hard to believe it’s been that long already, but Reed will be moving out soon having completed his goals.

The twins are getting busy working on their skills. Now that I am not following their uncle Reed to his performances anymore they can be focused on and we are working on getting them to at least Happy Toddlers if not Top-Notch.

Petunia is adding to the extended family with her husband. It’s good to know the family continues to grow outside of this house and maybe Petunia’s new baby and our new baby here could have a toddler play date!

Basil is a good dog, very loyal and sweet! He doesn’t demand much but Analisa is always giving him attention, pets, walks, you name it. She is up to a level 4 in pet training so we are close to being done with that skill.

Reed hasn’t left yet and so he helps little Oryx with some thinking skills by doing flash cards with him. I think it’s going to be tight to get both toddlers all their skills this time, but they should both make happy toddler at least.

Another bed time, and more stories are told by Analisa and Rye. The boys wanted their own stories tonight and our loyal Basil is there to watch over them as they sleep. He spends a bunch of time in the boys room if he isn’t by Analisa’s side.

I forget that Analisa is a child of the islands, so she calls for the island spirits but then sudden pains that she recognizes from her first pregnancy strike her and we realize it’s time to head to the hospital! Baby P is on the way! So we say good-bye to the island spirits, we’ll call them again later, and head to the hospital.

When we arrive at the hospital Rye freaks out and then runs off as Analisa heads to the birthing contraption, but for the very first time, a spouse stays close. Rye actually ran into the room next door and then freaked out watching through the window as his wife climbed into the contraption. Luckily everything worked as it should and the baby arrived without complications.

Meet Pine Comic. He is the final baby P in the family, he will be the Bad Apple of this generation, and I’m excited to see what another little boy looks like. The house is once again full and we will need to have Reed move out to make room for the final pregnancy, but for now we will focus on getting the twins aged up and Pine taken care of.

Before we leave this update, as the birth of Pine puts us in a perfect ending spot for now, let’s take a look at the latest extended family portraits shall we? From the top you have Hawk Comic all grown up. He is Lavender’s only child, then we have Wade’s son Cyrpus. He used to be a red-head but apparently decided that he wanted to look like his dad, who also dyed his hair as a teen. The we have Lake, Petunia’s only child so far, although as we saw, she is pregnant again. The lower level we have current spouses or partners. We start with Kellie Delgato who is now married to Wade, Goopy Eggleston is next and is the father of Misty’s son. Kyra, we discussed earlier, and is Birch’s baby mama. Finally we have Ellis Winslow who married Lavender.

That’s it for now, thank you for joining us yet again and hope to see you next time as we get closer and closer to wrapping up this crazy challenge.

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.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (7 of 9)
  • Workaholics (8 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (36 of 40 skills mastered)
  • 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!

Post 3.05 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 3.07

Hello and welcome back again. You have probably noticed the site looks different. I went on a hunt for a different layout/theme for the blog as the old one was older and there were some things I was not liking. Hopefully you all are ok with what I picked, I think it looks decent, so here’s hoping. Now, onto a view of our requirements here.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (7 of 9)
  • Workaholics (7 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (36 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (23 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (29 of 30 aspirations competed)


So we got a couple of things added or crossed off our list and we are close to a couple more. This time we should see the newest baby of the family and we’ll see what else happens. Let’s jump in.

We start with Rye working with his garden robots. We let the original ones go long enough that they disintegrated and we had to build a new one. Being this far into the challenge I don’t feel like I need to keep going on gardening, but want the potion ingredients, so we’ll use the bot to help.

Most of the family sits down to hang out together and discuss the new baby’s arrival. Lily plans to hold a baby shower so the family can get together and celebrate this new addition.

The baby shower was a huge success and Lily was able to give Analisa the new baby onesie she had knit for the baby when he or she finally arrives. Oceana has been working on toddler onesies for when the baby gets a little bit bigger and a new knit toy has been added to the toy box.

Little Lake, Petunia’s son, is now a toddler and the family tree is growing even more. He probably won’t be a toddler by the time Rye’s baby will be, so no play dates will probably happen. I really want to try that gathering some time.

Reed needed to study “flirty” socials. So before work he went to this cafe and we discover that Wade’s baby mama, Paige, works here. Reed gets his flirty studies out of the way just in time to head to work.

It is a busy day at work for Reed on set. He gets into hair and make up and his costume, but today he plays doctor. He gets to kiss a co-worker in the lobby, check out a patient and then die in the doctor’s lounge.

All of this work is paying off big time fr Reed, however, as he gets another promotion and is close to the top now. Sadly he hasn’t been nominated again yet, but I hope it happens at some point so I can try and go to the awards.

With Analisa being so pregnant now, swimming is about the only thing she can really do to try and keep healthy. The weightless feel in the water is also great for her back and legs and allows her to relax. Oceana and Reed stay close just in case.

That evening Lily throws a fundraising party and it was an enjoyable night for all. They sat at the bar or by the pool and talked and raised some money for a good cause.

Olive comes home with a promotion and is one promotion away from completing the Master Chef aspiration. She also needs Analisa to give birth to twins to finish up the Big Happy Family aspiration as well. So far the generation has always started with twins, so we’ll see if that continues.

Both Olive and Oceana head too the well, at different times to ask for promotion wishes. Olive doesn’t get a promotion right away, but Oceana does and completes the criminal career. That gives us another career down and 2 left to go.

We then get a bunch of updates from the extended family. Daisy is a young adult now, Wade an adult, and little Hawk, Lavender’s son, is a child.

The very next day Olive heads too work and gets her last promotion needed to reach Master Chef. She earns another trait, as you see, and she has completed a lot of things during her long life. I’m going to miss her.

While studying up on parenting, however, this looks graces our dear Analisa. We should all know this face by now. It’s time for the baby to make his or her appearance. I have been good and have not looked at MCCC to see what the baby will be, or if she’s having more than one, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Olive.

We send Analisa and Rye to the hospital and we actually have a human doctor again. This is fairly exciting as we have been having a lot of ghost docs lately. As Analisa lays in the machine, I watch closely and worry, but I had nothing to worry about. Rye does come down the hall and worries right outside the door. We once again have twins.

It’s a pair of boys for the family. We started with all girls, and are ending with a bunch of boys. Rye and Reed are no longer the only male Comic’s. They are now joined by (we are at BOOLPR O) Oryx and Oriole.

Back and home, it’s a good thing that Lily made 3 onesies, we have baby Oryx on the left in the light blue and yellow onesie, and Oriole in the dark blue on the right. Both parents start in on taking care of the newest members of the family right away, and hopefully Analisa will max her parenting soon.

She gazes down at her new sons, snuggling Oriole in her arms and is excited to watch these boys grow up. There are two more pregnancies needed this generation, but so far we are off to a good start.

As we prepare to leave the family fr this update I will share our updated picture walls. I moved Autumn’s generation over to the side so the generations flow from left to right a little easier. We need to get Rye’s picture up on the wall, but we already have Analisa, and will take pictures of the kids as they become teens.

Additional flamingos have been added to the flock and I rearranged the flamingos a little bit so we can more easily add the last 2 to 4 kids worth of flamingos too the flock outside. This family has grown and change in a lot of ways, and I hope you will stay with us for the final “years” of following them.

As we leave this family for this update, here is a quick look at Lake and a more grown up Glen. Glen is Wade’s youngest son. I should have the family tree updated finally, so if you looked before and didn’t see all the cousins added you should now. See you next time!
