The Sims Life & Times

The Sims, as anyone who plays can attest, takes on a life of its own. I created this blog so I could keep track of my sim stories and share them with others. I've always wanted to write stories but unfortunately I'm not very good at it lol I am hoping that just as my house building has improved so will my storytelling abilities.

My main family is called the Snookers. My goal was to move 1 sim into Relfamtown and see how the population would grow. I hope you will follow along with me.
If you would like to see all the stories in the Relfamtown series then click on Snooker Chronicles to the left and start at the bottom of the list.

UPDATE - Well since I had a major meltdown and lost Relfamtown, the Snookers are now in Sim Heaven and there will not be anymore updates on them :-( Out of the bad comes good though and Tesime is a new neighbourhood that I created for the Test of Time challenge. I hope you will enjoy their stories as well !

Tesime - Round Ten : The Benet chapter

The Benet's were fortunate to have most of their children find good mates and be able to move into their own huts.  This is course meant more of the work fell to the Belle and Skalton and as elders they really could not keep up as they once did.  Their remaining son, Benito, was a great help but so far they were discouraged that he was still single.  Being the heir it was up to him to keep the homestead going.  One evening Skalton went to check on the vegetable patch and he was surprised to see strangers standing in the middle of the cucumbers.  The leader, a fellow in long robes and a scythe, becokned him closer.  It looked like quite a festive event and Skalton felt better than he had in years.  He was lighter and more carefree and the drink that Grimmy passed along was so refreshing !  As he began to fade Skalton realized he was going to the afterlife and waved at his beloved Belle and hoped she would not worry too much.  As usual, there were many tears from those left behind but Benito hoped some good would come from the tragedy so he could give his mother some joy in her last days.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Gallant chapter

When we last left the Gallant's, Ida (Benet) had just moved in and was making fast friends.  Forest was totally smitten and could not wait to make her his mate and her in laws were counting the days until they heard the pitter patter of little feet again. Often Tra would spend his day talking with the other elders in the community and the topic always came around to who was the latest to meet their maker.  On one particularly lovely summer day it was time for Forest to have his aging ceremony.  His father, Tra, was very proud of the man he had become and they shared many an evening discussing what would be expected of him when he joined with Ida in a few months.  Unfortunately before that day arrived Rose was struck by the white light from the sky and taken to her spirit home.  The family was inconsolable.  They managed to lift themselves out of their grief in time to help Ida make her transition into adulthood and were actually happy when the joining day arrived.  Once her belly began to grow they celebrated the creation of a new life and knew Rose was smiling down on them.

Tesime - Round Nine : The Phan-Benet chapter

As the world turns, the sun and the moon do their dance across the sky and our sims grow older.  This time the birthday fairy visited Frida who aged to an adult.  Now that they were the same generation again, Ping was thrilled to be able to show his affections once more.  Frida was very receptive to all this attention and when Ping asked her to be his mate she enthusiastically agreed.   They enjoyed the matrimonial bed and before long the fruits of their labour was evident and Frida had a proverbial bun in the oven.  She happily shared this news with her beloved mate who couldn't help but be quite proud of himself.

Tesime - Round Nine : The Lindt-Stonegate2 chapter

This time around there were lots of pictures to choose from !  Hopefully I won't have an issue with the new blogger. This is my first post since the mandatory change over and I didn't watch the instruction video like I should have.

Ahhh Gideon Lindt and Juno Stonegate were the perfect example of teenage years being mean to kids -  after all, Proactive had not been invented yet !  They didn't make us wait long  this round though and Gideon aged followed closely by Juno.  Now they could get to the very important task of courting and Juno wasn't afraid to be the aggressor in this family.  The end result was a vow of love and devotion shared between the young couple and some very welcome woohoo'ing !  Uh oh, was Juno too young to remember the lessons her family learned at the start of this challenge being redheads and living on a tropical isle??  Can you imagine how much she screamed giving birth AND being sunburnt??  Well thankfully they didn't run around naked so there are parts of her which have never seen the sun lol Of course the end result was this very yummy little baby boy named Benny who had his mommas red hair and both parents dark blue eyes.  Cutie patootie !

Behind the Scenes

Sometimes the things that happen in game are strange. They do not apply to the story line so I save the pics for a different post.

I have never seen the burglar say this as they made off with my lootz before so I had to chuckle !

Tesime - Round Nine : The Lindt-Stonegate chapter

Ever the romantics, Liam and Summer were prone to severe cases of PDA. Of course you cannot fool around with Mother Nature and not expect her to shower you with gifts! Baby tossing was becoming a very popular event at aging ceremonies as Ericka and Abigail grew into toddlers. Now that the kids were older Liam and Summer were able to spend more time playing with them. They were such a joy to be around. Heavy with a baby in her belly it was time for the family to meet the new child. A boy ! Welcome to Tesime Joel.

Tesime - Round Nine : The Gallant-Benet chapter

When it came time for Basil and Annalise to age this was the result. lol not very era friendly ! After some help from their creator this was what they turned into. Much more appropriate don't you think? Now that adulthood arrived it was time for some PDA. That caused a strange feeling in Annalise's tummy, so after a quick consult with her mother Belle Benet, she surmised that the prehistoric stork had visited so they had a ceremony to unite them in marriage. Gathering honey became a full contact sport!

Tesime - Round Nine : The Benet-Gallant chapter

Jorn was such a dotting husband. He loved to talk to their new baby even before it arrived. Violet on the other hand wasn't enjoying the pregnancy as much as her husband. All those hormones and chemicals running ragged in her body left her struggling over the most basic skills. Finally the baby pains started and she knew it was almost time to meet her new baby. It's a boy who they named Kole ! Violet if you remember was the first child born in Tesime so it was a blessed day when their first child was a male to carry on the lineage. Motherhood seemed to come naturally to Violet and once she got Kole on a schedule she even had time to socialize with some friends. It wasn't long before a sickly feeling came over her and she knew they would be parents again. The pains this time around were much stronger than with Kole so she began to worry that something was wrong. It's another boy ! Before they could even name him, Violet felt more birthing pains and delivered another baby. This time it was a girl ! Twins who they named Denby and Evonnia.
