Blueberry Island – Spring 3 – Harris

Hey everyone!

Last time we visited the Harris family they were still living in their small starter house, but at the end of the round they moved to a bigger house. Thalia was born, and grew up to a toddler and then a child, and Zoe grew up to a teenager. Stella became pregnant again, much to her and James’ delight. James made a lot of money at his electronics store, which was what gave the family enough cash to move to the new house. And that was more or less it!

From left to right, Zoe, James with Thalia standing in front of him, Stella.

2s

Last time, the family moved into a new home, so this time, Zoe, Thalia and James quickly had to go to school and work.

3s

This is the house! The family now has a big living room and kitchen, and enough room for a whole bunch of kids.

4s

Stella paid the taxes, worth $3,800. That was wuite a bit of money for them, since they just spent most of their cash on a house.

5s

Stella then went to test out the new (big!) kitchen by making a whole bunch of cereal.

6s

Some of the neighbours came to check out the new house. That’s Henry Dawson and his daughter Nicole (who we’ll see later), and of course Meadow Thayer.

7s

They all had a great time chatting on the sidewalk.

8s

Zoe brought home Rachel Walker, with whom she promptly became best friends.

9s

They played some kicky bag and Meadow and Henry soon joined in the fun.

10s

Thalia brought Amber Burke home from school, although she had the wish to become friends with Robin. She quickly rolled the wish to become friends with Amber as well though.

11s

They hang out for a while.

12s

Stella had had a lovely long chat with Nicole, but it had exhausted her, so she took a nap.

13s

James took Zoe to James’ Electronics to work for a while. She was the cashier…

14s

…while James was on sales duty. Together they got the store to level 5, and earned themselves the $50,000 cash award.

15s

Back Home, James worked on his Body skill in the dark.

16s

In the meantime Zoe helped Thalia with her homework.

17s

James also worked on his Robotics skill some more. That’s going to happen a lot this season. I want him to be able to make Servos soon. So he can give one to Eric Robinson, among other things (Eric could use some help with his 5 top level businesses LTW).

18s

Zoe practiced her Charisma skill because she wants to top Entertainment when she grows up.

19s

The Harris family is one of the few families who has a television, and Stella enjoyed the luxury a lot.

20s

Thalia did some skilling before school the next day.

21s

Stella called Nicole Dawson to chat some more.

22s

She also became best friends with Amin Burke, which is nice for his LTW.

23s

James got promoted to Flight Officer!

24s

He also brought home Matthew Picaso, who networked him into another promotion (once he goes into work again).

25s

Thalia was being adorable: cleaning up after her pregnant, tired mama first thing after coming home from school.

26s

Since her mother was sleeping and her father was building robots, Zoe made dinner for the family.

27s

The girls’ parents were very thankful for such sweet daughters.

28s

Stella took a nice midnight bubble bath.

29s

Zoe broke the computer before going to school the next day…

30s

Stella keeps rolling wants to watch a movie, so that’s what she did that morning.

31s

And then, while the movie was still playing, she went into labour!

32s

It’s a baby girl!

33s

More than one baby girl, in fact…!

34s

This little cutie is Ella (I only realised after giving her that name that her mother is named Stella and that those two together sound kind of stupid. I was in a bit of a hurry when playing the birth, and I use http://www.babynamegenie.com for the names…)

35s

Anyway, this is Carrie! She has blond hair and grey eyes just like her twin sister, but her skin colour is one shade darker.

36s

What’s with all the girls in this hood, though? There haven’t been any boys for quite some time now.

37s

Right after giving birth Stella goes to fix the shower. Powerwoman!

38s

After Zoe came home she did take a little nap, though.

39s

As we already knew, James got promoted again. He’s now a Senior Officer. He’s now earned $25,000, which is a nice way underway to the $100,000 he wants.

40s

Thalia became best friends with Amber Burke at school because she wanted to bring her home (and I said no because two new babies is enough chaos for now).

41s

James got to meet his new baby daughters by changing their diapers.

42s

While watching the music TV station, Zoe found out her predestined hobby is Music and Dance.

43s

Thalia really loves playing chess. When left on free will, she keeps going to play it.

44s

Zoe and Thalia hardly have a relationship so I let them bond for a while before school the next morning.

45s

With a larger house, Stella also had a lot more cleaning to do.

46s

She also chatted with Nicole some more over the phone, and they became friends!

48s

But soon she had to get back to caring for the babies. She keeps rolling fears of changing diapers, which annoys me because she’s a family Sim and wanted all those babies in the first place. Also, those flies are disgusting.

49s

Zoe keeps coming home with an almost full fun bar, which is great! She can get her homework out of the way straightaway.

50s

James spent some time with his eldest daughter after work. He still couldn’t believe he now had four of them.

51s

Thalia got an A+ at school.

52s

Stella’s predestined hobby is Arts & Crafts, so I thought it would be fun to let her take up sewing as a hobby.

53s

James finally earned his silver robotics badge!

54s

Zoe really enjoyed taking care of her baby sisters.

55s

And that evening it was already time for them to grow up! Stella is holding Ella (ugh, those names) and James is holding Carrie.

56s

This is Ella!

57s

And this is Carrie. They’re both cute!

58s

First things first: some late night potty training.

59s

And these are the girls more close up. Left is Ella, right is Carrie. Carrie has the more fortunate genes, I believe. Also, their personalities are very different, which should be fun! Carrie’s personality is 10/8/8/7/1 and Ella’s is 1/8/10/6/5.

60s

The twins were up early the next morning and played quietly in their room.

61s

As soon as their parents woke up, however, it was time for some Smart Milk!

62s

Both girls were potty trained that very morning!

63s

Stella simultaneously had the want and the fear of having another baby. I think she’s a bit overwhelmed by having twin toddlers.

64s

Zoe brought Hannah Walker home from school and they quickly became friends!

65s

I also found out Zoe didn’t have a gender preference yet, so I randomised her and she’s bi, which I think is fun :-)

66s

Thalia had dinner with her mother. She hasn’t gotten a lot of attention lately.

67s

She also spent some more time with her big sister that evening.

68s

The twins’ relationship is in the negative! Perhaps I should buy them an activity table.

69s

Yes, much better! And with that bit of cuteness we end the season! Thanks for reading and Happy Simming!
