Maria’s first few days in the world flew past.
Connor stopped by to say hello.
I decided to end things between Kristjana and Christopher. They just don’t have enough in common to make it work. He didn’t take the news well.
With her newly freed up time, Kirstjana was able to pursue her own interests. She went to the graveyard to find some special seeds and planted them the garden.
Grady rolled two wishes to marry Elisa, and it didn’t seem right to stand in his way.
Maria grew up. She learned all her toddler skills, and had lots of fun with her activity table.
Kristjana got a new boyfriend, handyman Clark Sauer.
Shirin was the first in the household to reach the top of her career, fulfilling her lifetime wish.
As part of her promotion bonus, she got this wonderful fridge that gives +30 mood to any sims in its vicinity.
She also fell in love, with ambitous, family-orientated Leighton Sekemoto.
Since they’re such a good match, and Shirin is a hopeless romantic, I decided to move him in right away.
He brought his son Sam with him. Sam seemed pretty glum about the whole thing at first, but he cheered up when Shirin cooked his favourite meal, french toast.
Clark moved in too. I gave him a job in the military career. He was a bit grumpy about it. I think he just wanted to stay home and garden.
In his spare time, I let him do just that.
I had a full house by this point, so there was almost always a queue of sims waiting to play with Maria.
Leighton wished to marry Shirin, so off they went to the bistro for a romantic evening meal and badly lit proposal.
Elisa organized a birthday party for Maria. I had her invite some local children to give her daughter a head start in meeting her schoolmates.
Finally everyone had the same day off work, so I had Elisa throw a wedding party at the beach. I know the wedding arches came with Generations, but I used one of the ones from the store to make myself feel less like I was cheating.
Emotions were running high among the guests.
Grady cut the cake.
There wasn’t enough for everyone, but when there’s a stereo sims never seem to care about anything else.
Everyone danced and had fun.
Maria made a friend.
It was a lovely day.
One of the seeds that Kristjana found by the graveyard turned out to be a money tree.
I had Maria work out a few times. It doesn’t build her athletic skill, but the hours she’s spent doing this now will count towards the skill challenges later on.
Sam aged up and rolled the friendly trait. I used all the household savings to move him into a nice house. I hope story progression treats him well!
