Eich 1 (R10)

Last round at the Eich household, Melody got pregnant from closet woohoo and gave birth to late-in-life twins Alcea and Astilbe who transitioned into toddlers at the end of the round. Anise started seriously dating Keith Lee. At the end of the round, Annatto went off to college. Lets see how this family gets along this week.

Jar Card 151: Add soap to the Monkey Ruins

Alcea and Astilbe were both pleasant, inquisitive children. Astilbe seemed particularly interested in the fish tank outside his bedroom.

Both of the twins were a breeze to teach their toddler skills, it didn't take long for Astilbe to learn how to talk

Even the nanny was able to help with the teaching, she managed to teach Alcea how to use the potty on her own

Anise was itching to get out of the house, with some persistent searching and a little luck, she managed to find a job in her desired Adventure career track

Anise managed to do very well at her new job, she managed a promotion the very next night

The next night it was time for Melody and Darren to transition into elders

Synchronous air boxing!

The family gathered to watch them blow out their candles then enjoyed the cake

Melody [Tinker] Eich

Darren Eich

There was also another birthday party on the horizon, it was the twins turn to transition from the toddler stage into childhood

Melody took Alcea to her cake first and helped her blow out the candles

Alcea grew into a beautiful young lady that really resembled her mother

After Alcea had her turn in the spotlight, it was Astilbe's turn

Astilbe grew into a handsome young man more closely resembling his older siblings

With the twins a lot more self sufficient, and fewer demands at their jobs, Melody and Darren had the opportunity for more recreational pursuits.

Melody would spend hours at the basketball hoop or watching sports on TV

Darren frequently invited people over to hang out, especially friends that he had grow up with

Alcea and Astilbe easily entertained themselves. The frequently played out on the playground equipment

When they weren't playing, they were doing more constructive things. Astilbe liked to tend the much neglected family garden

And Alcea liked to bake muffins in her EZbake oven

They also really liked having their big sister, Anise, around to take them on outings, one afternoon they went over to the newly built boardwalk to play at the beach

Anise helped Astilbe build a sandcastle

While Alcea enjoyed the warm fall ocean water

While the twins were getting washed up in the locker rooms, Anise took a look around the Monkey Ruins on site. First she made a money offering

Then Anise made an offering of a different kind

The results were rather frightening

When the kids returned home that evening it was time for Anise to head off to college. First, she checked her scholarships

Then Anise called up her boyfriend Keith and they went off to Sim State together to start their young adult lives

Scoring: 0 points this round

Household Net-Worth:

((This house is actually way more insane than the entry would imply. I have lots of pictures of promotions for the Dogs and Roberto but none of them are really relevant to the story of this particular lot since Servo's don't count toward points and nobody in this household has the get 6 pets to TOC. Anyway, Roberto is now in the journalism career -- his LTW field -- so hopefully I'll have a perma-plat servo. Something that didn't fit into the entry that seems relevant, Robin and Dakota, the family's two beagles are going to be expecting puppies

The puppies will go to the pound and then get adopted by Annatto next round most likely. Anise and Keith are off at Sim State living at Annatto's rental. We'll see them in a few lots. We're off to the Devivio house next to check in on Guy, Sofia, Columbia and Eddie))

I see you too have an ovarabundance of robes as PJ's/underwear for kids.

The kids are gorgeous!

Good luck in Uni, Anise

Again, another chaotic-seeming round, and again some cute-looking twins.

Anise certainly got a large amount of scholarships -- at least that'll make college easier for her.

The nanny helped potty train??? I've never seen such a thing. Also the picture of the air boxing was great.

Wow, Alcea is like a tiny version of Melody all over again! That's kind of amazing. It was birthday central in this house this round.

Also, lol, Roberto. That name gets me every time.
