November 03: Autumn Happenings

It’s been a while, I know. Sometimes this thing called “real life” gets in the way. Shocking, I know. ūüėČ

Either way, here we are again. During the last month of my SimSummer (August), I made a post with all sorts of little stories about things that had happened during the summermonths. Because that worked rather well, I decided to do the same again with for the autumnmonths when the last month of autumn (November) arrived.

Here’s what (some of) my simmies have been doing during the autumn of 03.

An afternoon and an evening with the Masons

Colin, Naomi and Liam are a happy family, but everyone who knows them will be able to tell you the one thing they really¬†really want: another child. However, wanting a child doesn’t always mean getting a child. Especially not in the case of Naomi and Colin. So one Septemberday, Naomi went off to the hospital yet again for another fertility treatment…

Screenshot-115She sat in the waiting room, not all that happy… The treatments didn’t make her feel well and so far it hadn’t worked yet… They had been trying since Liam was only two years old, and by now her boy had already started school! How long would this have to go on for?

Thankfully, Naomi had a great doctor in Aaron Harvey. He always made her feel at ease.

After the treatment, Naomi went home to lie down for a while before Liam would come home again. She was glad for the fact that Alice had not given her her own class at school this year. Working as a substitute for a year meant it was a bit easier to take a step back every now and then when she felt she needed it.

When the evening fell, she felt a bit better and prepared a nice meal for her family.

When Liam had finished his homework, it was time for bed. He brushed his teeth and mum read him a bedtimestory.

And! It WORKED! Naomi is pregnant! Hooray! The little Mason baby is expected to arrive in March 04!

A whole bunch of babies for the Robinson sisters

You may remember me mentioning somewhere how sisters Annabel and Evelyn were both pregnant. Annabel for the third time and Evelyn for the first time. Annabel was due in early autumn (September), her sister in November.

For the Griffiths family, a new addition meant they had to move house. Their old home was quickly sold and they bought a very nice new place on the next street over.

The whole family quickly settled in their new home.

The girls each got their own bedroom, they had shared one ever since Ellie was born.

Two months later, Justin and Vicky had a little cousin…

Screenshot-42A few hours later, they came out again, carrying…

Screenshot-45…Valerie!

They took her home where new mum Evelyn put her in her brand new crib.

Julian’s 1st birthday

In October there was a little party at the Marshall residence. Baby Julian was no longer a baby! It was his very first birthday!

After cake and presents, Erin took her son for a stroll.

The weather was quite good this October, so they walked all the way through to Bumblebee Quarter, where Erin had a great idea; wouldn’t it be nice to have their family picture taken? She quickly called up her husband and asked him to come meet her at the photostudio.

Screenshot-13Kyle seemed umm… excited to have found the place?

Even though Kyle apparently had a problem with the place, photographer Gareth Magee knew what he was doing and took this familyportrait:

Jasper and Eva

Just to show it wasn’t all baby this past autumn, here are two pictures to show what happened between Jasper Adams and Eva Wyler

“Jasper, how would you like it if…”

“…my house became your house too?”

It turned out Jasper liked that very much actually!

And with that, the autumn came to an end. Despite the warm autumn weather, snow started to fall the moment December came knocking. But more on that another time!
