The Bauers: Round 7 / The Christmas Wedding

Scott and I are enjoying a laugh together.  It may be the last one we have for awhile, because things are going to be busy during the holidays.  We're going to be way too busy to have a family Christmas party.

The Webbs: Round 7 / Fangs, Not Claus

This is the Webb house at 135 Strudel Street.  It's all decorated for an upcoming family Christmas party.  A driveway and carport have been added since our last visit, as well as a pool and greenhouse in the backyard.

The Fletchers: Round 7 / Chevy's Christmas Vacation


My name is Chevy Fletcher, and I'm gonna be 9 on Christmas Eve.  This is my family.


I live in a town called Apple Grove.  I haven't ever lived anywhere else, but I think Apple Grove is a great place.

The Tuckers: Round 7 / Justin Time For Christmas

I haven't been to the Tuckers house in quite awhile.  As soon as I arrived, the first snowflakes began to fall on their house that is lighted for Christmas.  They're going to have a family get together in a little while, so they're preparing for that.

Round 7 - Christmas and the New Time Reckoning

I decided that Round 7 will just be one day of play in each of the houses, and it will be Christmas, or technically December 2027.  I'm so relieved, and plan to be done forever with 7 day rounds.

The Grahams 2: Round 6 / Rooms With a Vu

After his wife Sophie cheated on him with zombie Elmer Cormier, a divorced Daniel Graham and his 3 sons moved into 125 Apple Avenue - the left end of the same rowhouses where the Andersons and Foremans live.


Daniel did not want to be alone raising 3 boys, and wasted no time at all in finding a new love interest.

The Grahams 2 (2020-2026)

After Sophie and Daniel split up earlier in the round, Daniel moved out with his 3 sons, and his 2 daughters Airell and Blair stayed with Sophie.  I've already played this house, which is the last in round 6! :D  I should have their update written soon, as I have a fun plan for round 7.  Sorry there's no family tree, but I forgot to take the picture at the beginning, and I don't want any spoilers.

The Pedersons and Porters: Round 6 / Life Is Like a Box of Crayons

Half sisters Reagan and Taft Webb were both married at the beginning of the round and have now moved into a duplex with their husbands.  Initially they moved into separate apartment buildings, but those buildings have now been torn down.  Apple Grove now has residential "apartments" because I hate the game's apartments.


Their building is owned by Heath and Lara Fancey who sent the amount of the lot to them to buy the building.  They send rent to the Fanceys using the checkbook from, and Heath is teleported over to do yard work and repairs as necessary.  In addition, I keep track of their paychecks and purchases for each family to know how much money they have, and let them split the bills.

The Pedersons and Porters (2020-2026)

The Pedersons and Porters are next in Round 6.  Reagan and Taft are sisters who are married and live in the same duplex.  I just finished playing them, so I should have an update within the next few days.  Here are the details of the families:

The Andersons: Round 6 / Do We Gotta Catch Em All?!

Instead of doing a recap of the Andersons in Round 5, I'm going to just dive right in and get this story over with. ;)


Since Charity is pregnant, she and Sabastian followed Cassandra and Morgan's example and moved to the rowhouse next door so they would have room for the new baby.

The Andersons (2020-2026)

The Andersons are the next family in Round 6.  I have a real daughter named Charity, although she is not yet married and doesn't have children, so this is pretty much entirely fiction.  This is just a post to give current details about this family.  I'm currently playing them, and hope to post an update soon.

The Foremans: Round 6 / In a Box with a Fox In Socks

Cassandra and Morgan and their dog Leah have moved out of their tiny house and into a new home.  Cassandra has short hair now.  I'm not sure if she changed it because she's pregnant, or if I deleted her hair when trying to cut back on my cc.  I suspect I deleted it.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

The Foremans (2020-2026)

The Foremans are the next family in Round 6.  Cassandra is my sim daughter, and I have a real life daughter named Cassandra as well.  Sim Cassandra and her husband Morgan are expecting their first child.  I have already played this family, so I hope to have an update soonish.

The Todds: Round 6 / Extensive Vamping

Sorry, I said I was going to try not to take a month to update this time.  Well it isn't quite a month yet, but it's close.  Since my last update, I got myself addicted to Colourlovers, and then Pinterest. ;)

Monday, October 3, 2011

The Todds (2020-2026)

The Todds are the next family in Round 6. Look for an update soon-ish for the Todds. I'm just beginning to play their house for this round. I'll try not to take a month this time. ;)

The Jeffresses and Miguels: Round 6 - pt. 2 / How Many Tweets?

As we return to part 2 of the Jeffress and Miguel families, we are now back at Rose Electronics.  If you haven't read part 1 yet, you might want to go back to the previous post.

The Jeffresses and Miguels: Round 6, pt. 1 / Put Banana Here

Sorry it's been so long - almost a month.  I've been making a somewhat futile attempt to purge my 7.59G downloads folder, and so I'm still at 5.65G. In my attempts to locate some of the stuff, I found new stuff to download.  :P

The Jeffresses and Miguels (2020-2026)

The Jeffresses and Miguels are the next families in Round 6.  Rose and Violet are sisters, and were formerly Hamiltons.  They've been sharing a house for the time being, which I thought would make my job easier.  Look for an update to this family soon.

The Fanceys (2020-2026)

My list of sims post was getting too long, so I think I'll make a post for each household before their update.  It's a handy reference for me to keep track of all detailed information about the sims in Apple Grove.  You might find it interesting too, if you don't have to scroll through 70+ sims to read about them.

The Fletchers 2: Round 6 / The Warlock Pirate

The last time we visited with Rudy Fletcher's family, Zoe gave birth to Chick-Fil-A.  Rudy was abducted by aliens, and gave birth to green twins Applebee's and Jack-in-the-Box. Wendy's grew up to be a fortune teen.  The twins grew up to be toddlers, and Chick-Fil-A grew to be a child.

Their house is very full now, so it's good they were able to get their male heir Jack-in-the-Box.  I didn't want to try to add on to this house, didn't want to move people into the garage, and didn't want to move them to a different house.

The Grahams: Round 6 / Cruel To Be Kind

When we last saw Sophie, she was in labor.  I left her in labor for an entire round.  But she had had an affair with my sim daughter's husband Elmer Cormier, so I felt justified in torturing her for a good looooonnnngggggggg  time.  Besides, she got a lighter sentence than Elmer, as I made sure he got eaten by a cow plant.

Okay, so now after all this time she is finally allowed to give birth.

The Tuckers 2: Round 6 / Who's Your Daddy?

When we last visited Brian Tucker's house, Dagmar started her own "massage business" at Radiance Spa. Aerosmith grew to be a child.  Dagmar gave birth to a baby girl she named Blondie who looks nothing like Brian.  And they took a fairly miserable camping vacation to Twikkii Island where they got seriously sunburned.

And now they are moving into a house more fitting for a rockstar.  This is actually the remodeled Landgraab mansion.  Brian even opened a gym as a home business in the garage of the mansion to help offset the bills and the cost of their butler.

The Shibatas: Round 6 / True Love

When we last visited the Shibatas, they had just moved into this new house.  At the time they had a toddler daughter name Honey and they were both pregnant.  They each gave birth shortly thereafter.  Ravi had an Alien daughter named Desire, and Kimberly gave birth to twins, Adore and Cherish. 

And so here are the Shibatas at the beginning of Round 6.  The year is 2020.

University: Round 6 / Love and War

Poor, neglected Apple Grove!  I don't know why I dragged my feet so long on this update, but I guess it just might be that University is a bit boring to me. 

This is Urele House, the Greek House at University of Applebama.  Since many of Apple Grove's young people have passed through it, it's been improved upon about as much as I'm willing to mess with it.  It's still quite tacky inside and out, but it seems fitting for a Greek house to be tacky.  It's functional at this point, and it has good quality plumbing, nice beds and plenty of study and skilling items.  Thanks to me, University of Applebama did not make it onto Simston Review's list of top party schools.

The Browns: Round 6 / Bigfoot Named My Baby

When we last saw the Browns, they adopted a dog named Swift from the pound that first belonged to Daniel's sister Devan and her husband Charles Fletcher.  The Brown's mission was to train her in all the bad behaviors.  Once they trained her, they decided to give her back to Devan.  Daniel was promoted to General in the military.  They went camping and got a little surprise.  The Contessa was now pregnant and very hungry, so they went on a "hunting" trip to Three Lakes.  They brought back a live-in servant - a Sasquatch named Stephen who they planned to have take care of their baby.

The Hamiltons: Round 6 / Two Cats Forward and One Cat Back

When we last visited the Hamiltons, Badger and Acorn aged to elder cats, Forrest and Beverly became elders, they adopted another kitten named Hindrance, George became a teen and Hyacinth became a child, the "mentally-challenged" cat Gump ran away, Forrest achieved his lame lifetime want of having six pets reach the top of their careers, and the family took a vacation to Twikkii Island.

The Bauers: Round 6 / Dog Tired

When we last visited the Bauers, there were 2 weddings: Cassandra and Morgan, and Charity and Elmer.  Amiee and Jason went off to college, and Christopher and Ian became teens.  Padi and Obi had 3 puppies.  The whole family (except for our new sons-in-law) went on a vacation to Three Lakes.

The Webbs: Round 6 / Three Weddings and a Baby

When we last visited the Webbs, Clinton and Grace both became elders and retired from their jobs.  They took the whole family to Takemizu Village on a vacation, including Reagan, Taft and Wilson who were still in college.  Washington became a teen, and Grace created a new family member - a servo named Grace 2.0.

The Fletchers: Round 6 / Swift and Terrible-ish

When we last visited the Fletcher family, Charles and Devan got married, went on a honeymoon to Takemizu Village, and had a baby boy they named Chevy.  They also adopted a puppy from the Tucker family next door named Swift who wouldn't eat, so they gave her up for adoption.  Swift was adopted by the Brown family (Devan's vampire big brother and his vampire wife), who "trained" Swift and gave her back.

The Tuckers: Round 6 / Common Nonsense

I'm finally getting back to Apple Grove after a bit of real life and holidays.  I had this idea that a holiday post with all the different families would have been cool, but there would have been too many spoilers because the families have been played farther than what you've seen so far.  Bummer.  Maybe next year if all goes well.

This is the Tucker family.  The last time we visited them, Martin's mother, stepfather, baby brother, aunt and niece all moved out, and he met and married Jill.  They had a little girl they named Artists, and Jill is pregnant with their second child.
