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 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.

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.
