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 Lindt-Stonegate2 chapter

For Juno and Gideon life revolved around their son Benny.  They helped him with his aging ceremony and spent many a day teaching him all he would need to grow into a resourceful man.  There was still time for play in any childs life though as Benny proved.  Juno was lucky to have Mother Nature smile on her again and she gave birth to another son, Lazarus.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Lindt-Stonegate chapter

The twins were growing like weeds and before they knew it another aging was upon them. Abigail and Ericka were going to be heartbreakers for sure. Little Joel wasnt to be left out and had his own aging ceremony into a toddler. Guess it will take awhile for the hair to fill in. The weather was always so perfect in Tesime and Summer loved playing with the kids inspite of being in the family way.Course too much exercise will speed things along and Summer realized the new baby was going to make a quick entrance. Thankfully everything went according to plan and another girl who they named Seraphina joined the family!

Tesime - Round Ten : The Gallant-Benet chapter

As we visit Annalise and Basil we find that the funny feeling in her tummy turned out to be a bun baking and she was ready to deliver !  Around the same time they were grateful to inherit some beloved items from Skalton and Cimon on their passing.  The birth went well for a first baby and when it was over they had a cuddly son who they named Gabriel.  Being a first child and after their tragic elders passing, Gabriel was a welcome distraction.  Grandma Belle Benet was happy to spend lots of time with him and before they knew it it was time for the aging ceremony.  Annalise and Belle were very proud to continue on their family's face marking tradition.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Benet-Gallant chapter

The Benet-Gallant's enjoyed the time with their young family and slipped into a normal routine of child minding.  Therefore it was a blessed day when Violet realized she was with child again.  The summer storms were especially violent with many trees around their hut going up in flames. Thankfully everyone remained safe and aging ceremonies began.  Kole, the first born of the first born ( Violet ) turned into a very studious child while Jorn made sure the twins, Denby and Evonnia, aged to toddlers by the age old baby tossing ritual.  In spite of their determination sometimes they were not able to take care of everything.  At the end of the pregnancy Violet called for Jorn to attend her.  This being her 3rd pregnancy as long as everything went well she was confident with the outcome.  What she did not predict was another set of twins !  Brothers Soren and Yorick joins their growing family.

PS - more boys??  omg I am so short on females it's not even funny !

Tesime - Round Ten : The Phan chapter


GRRRR I hate Blogger !  This whole picture issue is driving me batty. Just when I figure out a way to work around their stupid layout they change it and it takes me hours to sort it again.  It makes updating very low my list.  Anyway I better get a few in now while I know what I am at again.

The Phan's are my male rich lot.  Skye found herself in the middle of it all and tried her best to help out.  Fishing and farming were high on the to-do list and Skye and Mykelti became quite adept at it all.  The other lads found a wasp nest and of course boys being boys they just had to see who could get the closest which resulted in them all being swarmed !  Thanfkully there were no lasting ill effects.  teehee With so many boys around Cimon and Ashanti thought it best to school Skye in the most basic of sim wants. Hasan and Mykelti aged into handsome adults with only Mykelti having a mate prospect arranged.  Never passing up an opportunity ,when Cimon found it was his time to join the afterlife the "boys" were sure to check out the fine dancers who accompanied Grimmy.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Lindt chapter

Love was not coming easy for the remaining Lindt boys. The lack of females on Tesime was finally becoming a big problem as Jeremy aged to adulthood with no mate on the horizon.  Rebecca wanted nothing more than to see her sons settled but life was not being easy on her either.  If it wasn't the cooking fire raging out of control, it was lightning strikes setting blaze to the trees close to their hut.  Then a terrible coughing illness settled into her chest and she spent many weeks spitting up a foul phlegm.  Once she could eat solid foods again she was plagued with food poisoning that lasted for days.  Alas it was not her time and she finally recovered to see her baby Abner mature to an adult.  Life does like to sneak up and yell SURPRISE at us and poor Rebecca was no exception.  As she lay on the soft grass gazing up at the clouds, the gods sent a huge ball of fire from the sky that squished the life out of her.  Samuel came running when he heard the noise and could not believe his eyes.  His beautiful wife was no more.  Heartbroken he hardly heard the words that Grimmy spoke. He certainly did not have the mind to plead for her life and so the call was made.  Jeremy was beside himself with grief and the thought of continuing to live seemed like such an effort.

ps - omg my first satellite ! I was so excited.

Tesime - Round Ten : The Stonegate chapter

In Tesime all the kids cannot wait to reach adulthood so they can get their mate and procreate.  Shoshana and Marcus were no different.  As soon as Shoshana matured Marcus was on one knee to seal the deal.  Of course the youngun's were not the only ones to want love.  Now that April and Tre Gallant were widows it only seemed natural to spend more time together and before they knew it sparks were flying !  That bed was getting lots of action this time around as Shoshana shared the great news with Marcus that they would be joining the parents club.  From the grave Jared had been watching this new development between his wife and Tre and he was not impressed.
