Generation 2.7: Same Old, Same Old

Hi there readers!! Hope everyone is doing well! I’ve noticed quite a bit of traffic on this blog so I figured it was time for an update.  Image

We start off this chapter with our founder pulling himself from bed to turn the moodlet manager on himself. He was completely miserable, and it was only the middle of the day. So it was a necessary move. 

Image

 

Ivan uses his recently replenished motives to care for his little girl. feeding and changing her before plopping her down in the playpen.

Image

He then heads outside to care for his garden, gotta get that skill up for work. 

Image

Meanwhile inside Shaelyn is showing off her dog impersonation… typical Shaelyn.

Image

I decided that Ivan and Henley’s room needed a bit of a makeover, so I decorated it using the Haute Hip collection from the store. We have limited funds so its still a little empty but much better.

Image

Henley decides that once Danny wakes up its time to give him a piece of her mind. 

Henley: You’re garbage

Danny: Yeah? well you aren’t the brightest lightbulb, in fact you’re pretty dim.

Image

As you can imagine, that didn’t go over too well with Henley, she proceeded to give Danny a real tongue-lashing. 

ImageImage

Once she is done with her angry outbursts, Henley heads into the den to care for Jayda. I know shocking right? 

Image

Our handsome heir comes home and decides to cook dinner for the family. Mac and Cheese!!!! (every time I say that I think of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends)

Image

Cute family time shot!

Image

Then Ivan takes care of the kitties, don’t want them to feel neglected

Image

Father-Son grooming, super cute!

Image

A quick potty training session for the little miss and then off to bed we go

ImageImage

The following morning everyone heads off to work and school respectively

Image

Minnie aged up right next to a giant pile of vomit…

Image

While our boy kitties punce and growl and play, honing those hunting skills

ImageImage

Day in, and day out the same routine. Exercises to do, bills to pay

Image

The monotony is broken up by Ivan practicing magic! Hoping for some good collectibles worth money.

Image

Daddy being home also means that Jayda gets some attention. Henley left her in the crib all day with no attention…

Image

Shaelyn decided to leave work after earning only 8 simoleons… to come home and eat some mac and cheese. 

Way to deprive your family of money Shaelyn!

Shaelyn: Can’t hear you.

Image

As the day dwindles, Ivan settles down to  do some research that will advance him in the science career

Image

While Aunti Shaelyn gives Jayda some much needed attention. Because once again, her mother ignored her

Image

Yup, there she is in the kitchen complaining about the dishwasher.

Image

Shaelyn reads Danny a bed time story and then kicks him out of her room

Image

Ivan grabs Jayda from the playpen, puts her to bed and then goes to find his wife. 

Image

Once found they get a little frisky

Henley: But Ivan Im so hungry!

Ivan: Dont worry I’ll take care of that hunger 😉

Image

Woohoo ensued, followed by chimes and we all know what that means!

Image

After a night of fun, its Ivan’s day off and he uses the time to once again give his garden some love

ImageImage

Which is more than can be said for Henley and their daughter, she places her on the ground crying in hunger and then heads into the kitchen to fill the pet bowls.

I seriously have never seen such an inattentive mother…

Image

Shaelyn wakes up and makes the family breakfast, delicious pancakes for all. 

Image

Ivan stuck Jayda in the walker before going to grab some breakfast, so thankfully she is getting her walking skill 

Image

Apparently Shaelyn made some good pancakes

Image

Once breakfast is done, Shaelyn changes into her formalwear and heads out to practice her athletic skill

Image

While Henley just stares at her tired daughter

Image

Ivan was working hard to fix the dishwasher, thankfully escaping any harm

Image

Henley suddenly runs for the bathroom to throw up. which means MORE BABIES!!!! 

That about wraps it up for this update I hope you guys enjoyed. Please keep reading and commenting.

Generation 2.6: Baby Time and Birthdays

Hi there readers! We are back with another installment of the ISBI challenge. This family has been driving me nuts lately, they seem to be getting dumber by the second… on that note, here we go. 

Image

Henley wakes up in the middle of the night, and I got really excited thinking that it baby time… but no, she just wanted to go play on the computer…

Image

Not long after Ivan wakes up due to hunger and unfortunately the only thing in the fridge are the disgusting waffles his wife made. This is why he should be the only one cooking. 

Image

But somehow Valerie managed to find some salad. Not really sure why Ivan would pick burnt waffles over salad. But food aside this is an adorable moment, Mom and son reuniting. 

Image

I am completely shocked that Henley is taking care of her son of free will, usually she tries to avoid him…

Image

Though its not very long before she plops him on the ground and then walks away, to play on the computer of course. Meanwhile Patch is intrigued by this tiny human. 

Image

The kitties were getting a little lonely but some grooming boosts their social right back up. 

ImageImage

Well at least Shaelyn and Henley are in the same room together, they hardly interact otherwise…

Image

and here is poor little Danny being ignored… because Ivan isn’t home to care for him. 

Image

Thankfully Auntie Shaelyn comes to the rescue and little Danny is fed. 

Image

big surprise Henley made something burnt and disgusting…

Image

Finally Ivan comes home and feeds Danny again to make sure he is full

ImageImage

And then makes some delicious edible food for his family instead of the disgusting gunk his wife made. 

ImageImageImage

Not long after dinner its baby time for real! Sorry but no hospital for you girl, welcome to legacy life. 

Image

She attempted to go to the hospital and I cancelled the interaction. Hence the outerwear, but welcome to the family a new baby girl!

Image

Jayda Covington, shes insane and loves the outdoors. 

Image

And Henley starts with the neglect early on… 

Image

Thankfully Ivan is a good parent and tries to lead by example. 

Image

And she catches on!

Image

And another kitty shot. Their social seems to get low really easily lately :/

ImageImageImage

Im going to lock Henley out of the kitchen… because she is going to burn the house down one day. So glad Shaelyn and Ivan know the Ice Blast spell which quickly remedies the situation.

Image

Shaelyn takes better care of this baby than Henley does…

ImageImage

While Ivan is at work, Henley decides to just get Danny’s birthday out of the way. 

Image

wooo! check out that jaw… definitely takes after his father. 

Image

I turned the dining room into a nursery/kids room. giving Danny a bed and a desk and leaving both cribs in the nursery incase of multiples in the future. 

ImageImage

Danny heads right for the bird cage, he loves playing with Dodo and cleans his cage afterward. What a good little boy. 

Image

Ivan comes home and finds his daughter in desperate need of attention, he feeds her changes her diaper and gives her some love. 

Image

Then takes care of his own needs.

Image

Before the family knows it, its Jayda’s birthday

Image

Henley takes Jayda to the cake, even though she takes care of her least of all

Image

Ivan is excited to see his little girl grow. 

Image

she is a little copy of Henley, absolutely adorable. 

Image

Grimmy takes no time in sniffing about at her, and she loves it.

Image

Ivan takes a little time to start her potty training before bed. Look at her cute little potty chair!

This has been a pretty eventful chapter, and hopefully not too boring. 

Thank you for reading 😀

Generation 2.5: Days in the Life of…

Hey there readers! First off, I would like to thank all of the readers I have had in the past couple of days, it was a great surprise and I truly appreciate it.

Image

We start off this update with our incredible stinky founder climbing into an extremely relaxing bath. I guess thats what he gets for playing in the garden all day.

Image

And even though Ivan is super hungry he finds time to take care of his wife’s child. Danny may not be biologically Ivan’s but he loves him all the same and its good practice for his baby on the way. Image

But caring for children is exhausting and a nutritious plate of autumn salad is needed afterwards. Image

But Danny wasn’t the only thing that needed Ivan’s attention, we can’t forget our new friend! Image

The kitties are out hunting for some new friends, though I don’t think the Covingtons’ will be keeping these pets, though they are cute, the money is more useful. Image

Grimmy has decided that litter box is calling his name and retires from hunting for the night. Image

While Shaelyn settles on some leftovers, goopy carbonaraImage

Henley refills the cat dishes…Image

and decides that she would rather cook than eat leftovers.Image

too bad she makes a major mess of the kitchen instead… and i can’t even make her clean it!Image

I am not really sure why Ivan just sent a secret admirer text to the elderly gent… a little weird.Image

Oh gracious swirling mini tornado please cleanse this toddler!!!Image

After an uneventful night and lots of rest, Ivan and Henley wake up and he lets her know that he likes her makeover, while she thinks about how clown-like? he looks… she’s just as nuts as the rest of them. Image

Even though she laughed at him, Ivan takes it upon himself to cast a good luck charm on his pregnant wife, hoping that it will lead to a smooth pregnancy and delivery. Image

Once he is done he places Danny in the walker, seeing as Henley doesn’t enjoy taking care of him…Image

This was a close one… for some reason she couldn’t figure out how to use the toilet til the last possible second…Image

Once Shaelyn is done Ivan works on his handiness skill, while taking care off the ridiculous amount of repairs that must be doneImage

And more repairs…

Image

Henley lends a hand by mopping up the messImage

Ivan then rolls some wishes to play with Grimmy, and sets off to do so, which has a positive side effect of distracting him from staring at the bird.

Image

A quick chat with one of his co-workers and Ivan decides that all his chores are done for the day. Image

He decides to take his wife out for dinner at the local diner. Though he goes on his broom and makes her take a cab.Image

Image

So they arrive separately…

ImageImage

Though he makes up for it with some romantic moves at the end of the night 😉Image

I don’t know how Shaelyn came to have this makeup on… but I wanted to show it off. ImageImage

A couple of cute pics of Danny to end this chapter. Hopefully next time we will have a contender for the Covington heir-ship. Here’s to hoping!

Mini Hiatus

So as of last night I now own all the expansion packs thanks to my lovely bestie! The only expansions I was missing were World Adventures and Showtime. I am super excited for the new recipes and actual cameras (so the sims dont have to use their phones anymore) and the Clothing and build/buy items from Showtime. So I will be taking a couple days to enjoy the new content before resuming the updates on my blogs. Be back this weekend readers! In the mean time check out the list of other blogs I recommend!!!! 

Generation 2.4: Growth

And we are baaaack! Another look into the lives of my insane sims.

Screenshot-55

Funny how the mother of the child complains more about taking care of him than anyone else…

Screenshot-56

But she doesn’t seem to lose any sleep over it.

Screenshot-58

Yet there is no complaint when the cats need attention

Screenshot-59

At least I can tell Ivan to take care of the kid… She just looked at him and walked away

Screenshot-60

The family has a new addition thanks to our stalking kitties.

Screenshot-61

Screenshot-62

Screenshot-63

Here is some more Henley spam, due to the fact that Ivan is at work. She actually takes care of her son, cooks some lunch and bonds with her sister-in-law.

Screenshot-64

And here is our glorious heir! Finally home from work. And make some goopy carbonara for the fam.

Screenshot-65

and then greets the new family member, who has yet to be named, he is a gold finch. Any suggestions?

Screenshot-66

Always the busy bee at home, Ivan greets the babe before heading to bed.

Screenshot-67

Yup its a full moon and Valerie is out, and harassing the zombies.

Screenshot-68

Here is a better look at her 😀

Screenshot-70

Ghosts are out in full force, as Benjamin glides around the house, startling his children.

Screenshot-72

Valerie makes sure to watch over her youngest, her heir.

Valerie: That baby does not belong to my son!

ME: yeah I know…

Screenshot-73

I get distracted by the cuteness of the kitties, even though Grimalkin is old he still shows love for his mate.

Screenshot-74

and Patch gets some love from his Mommy!

Screenshot-75

Had to build a fence… otherwise the zombies wouldve eaten the other plants… like they ate the tree.

Screenshot-76

Screenshot-77

Im pulled inside for a birthday, and Danny (I think thats his name) ages up. He’s cute but definitely looks like his father.

Screenshot-79

 

Shaelyn wastes no time in silencing the screaming hungry baby.

Screenshot-78

 

During the screaming Henley and Ivan sneak away for a quick shower woohoo!

Screenshot-81

 

They tire themselves out and head to bed

Screenshot-82

 

The peaceful night’s sleep is interrupted by Henley’s need to vomit, and you all know what that means!!! GENERATION 2 is coming!!!!

Screenshot-83

 

but instead of telling her husband, she jumps on the computer and plays games…

Screenshot-84

 

Ivan puts together the new baby stuff and then distracts Grim from staring at the bird.

Screenshot-85

 

with hugs!!!!

Screenshot-86

 

Henley gets a makeover and then goes right back to the computer…

Screenshot-87

 

Though she is once again interrupted by throwing up and then…

Screenshot-88

She pops!!!

And here we will end our update… I know its a bit short and I apologize. I will make it up to you guys soon 🙂
