We start the round at the Bells with everyone but Sharon wishing to obtain a pet, so they head to the pet store and decide to pick up a couple of cats  Maybe they will have kittens and we can start a pool of kittens for the inevitable raise puppies/kitties wants from others.

The kitties are a big hit with Issac and Daniel.  After returning home they both wished for things regarding the cats.  There is a scottish fold male named Neil, and then a tuxedo female we named Diamond.

Currently Sharon and Hannah are in the dance field, although it's not Sharon's dream to stay there they work on some body skills, fulfilling some wants in the process.

Issac, the popularity sim, always is wanting to throw parties and meet people, so he is happy to great the welcome wagon.  Sharon gets to know one of the Cordial sisters, although I can't remember which one this is currently.

He also starts to become friends with Herbert Goodie.  Herbert's wife Faith is also a part of the welcome wagon.

Issac still wants to throw a party so he invites everyone he is closest two.  This included the entire Aspir family.  If you remember from their update, there was a bit of drama when a love triangle emerged between Luis and his son Victor for Elizabeth's affections.

Sure enough, the party was in full swing and going well when I hear the sounds of jealousy.  Out to the porch I go in time to see Victor slapping his father.  I take it Luis and Elizabeth interacted in some romantic way.

With that interaction love is gone in the Aspir's marriage for now.  We have a long way to go before we get back to this family so time will tell what happens before then, but I have a feeling it will be tumultuous at best.

Hannah often wants to dance with someone, and Issac is always game to dance with her.  These two are relatively easy to met wishes for most of the time.  They each have a day or two that they don't want to reach anything, but early on it was easy.

Hannah did set the kitchen on fire, but they have a fire alarm so the fireman was there to assist in no time and no damage was done....other than to the comfort soup she was mixing up.

Daniel is mostly an easy kid.  He's already in private school, makes friends pretty easily, and always wants to play with, praise or teach the cats.  He brought a friend home from school and they spent some time playing together.

Sharon has been pretty easy as well, but she seems to have mostly forgotten she is a romance sim first.  The fall and secondary knowledge has made her a skilling machine. John Mole did call and invite her on a date however, and since we always try and answer the phone, and accept every invitation she went.  They had a decent time, but Sharon was pretty tied and ended the date somewhat early.

Issac and Hannah have had lots of time together as well, and we get the first hint that another Bell may be on the way.  This is about 1/2 way through the season so we will get to meet the baby before the season, and round, is done. 

Everyone here always wants to talk about their hobbies, and it has caused the sisters to become best friends.  They share quite a bit, and help each other meet wishes frequently.

We have confirmed a new Bell is on the way when Hannah has her first "pop" to start showing a bit of a baby bump.

The cats are still here, and mostly get along.  They had a pretty high relationship and then something happened to drop it on Neil's end again.  We still hope eventually there will be kittens.  Neil is a very good cat and calm.  He watches Sharon exorcise.  He followed her to the different equipment and just watched.  I had never see a cat watch like that.  (He didn't even want something, it literally said Watch..."

Sharon does always have her sister around to talk about her hobby with, but luckily Issac is around and willing to share his thoughts about the same hobby.  This whole family is growing closer by the day.

Towards the end of the season we have a birth on the way.  Hannah wakes up from a nap with the first pains of labor.

 We get notice that the Bell's actually will have TWO (2) new babies.  Twins were born Friday, September 15, 2005 (day 5) at 4:56 PM.  There is a boy and a girl and they are named from the BC Pop list.  Intoducing Isabella and Mason
The very happy Issac decides to hold a party to celebrate his babies birth and everyone he can think of is invited, except for at least part of the Aspir clan.  We don't need drama today. 

The party is a lot of fun, and multiple pillow fights happen.  Mary Gavigan and Faith Goodie also just talk at the table.  It was a good party.

Right at the end of the season/round Daniel Bell grows up into a teenager in his room.  It is redecorated to better suit his new age and we found out that he is Family/Grilled Cheese sim and has the desire to become a Prestidigitator just like his aunt. He likes brown haired vampires, as long as they don't have glasses.



Hannah: Was really easy to keep happy for a couple of the early days.  Then she became pregnant and was nearly impossible.  She nearly starved to death a couple of times, and was never in a good enough mood to do much.  Hopefully the babies being born will help next round.
Ending Wishes: Ask Sim on Date, Dance with Someone, Talk About Hobby, Play Modular Synth

Issac: The easiest adult to keep happy.  Being a pop sim he was frequently wanting to talk to people and be friends.  He also had a lot of  fortune wishes from his secondary and that helped as well.  He did eventually get into the dance career and is on his way.
Ending Wishes: Buy a Car, Daniel Gets Scholarship, Talk About Hobby, Command Neil to Speak

Sharon: Almost exclusively wanted skills, which was fairly easy, but she struggled at the beginning and end of the week.  Never did find a job in her desired career.  Spent so much time keeping Hannah alive I wasn't able to focus as much on her as I would have liked.
Ending Wishes: Ask Sim on Date, Talk About Hobby, Dance with Someone, Play Modular Synth

Daniel: Easiest sim to keep happy this round.  Came over every day with a wish to get a skill, or make a friend.  Woke up every morning wanting to do homework, get an A+ and play with the cats.  He is a teenager now, so the wishes will probably change quite a bit and we'll see what happens.
Ending Wishes: Get A+ Report Card, Meet Someone New, Flirt, Have Very First Kiss

Issabella/Mason: Still babies so they were pretty easy to take care of.  Everyone loves to come feed the babies as most simmers know.  Hopefully having 3 adults and a teenager will make taking care of the twins a bit easier.


  1. That was a lovely and lively round! Wow - two more little "Bells" :-)
    I don't think I've seen a cat "watch" their humans like that in the game yet, so this was new. I always thought Nell was a female name (short for Nellie?), but in your game the male cat has that name.

    1. I actually named them myself, and it's Neil instead of Nell. There is a female Nell cat too. :) It was an eventual round and I didn't even feel like I took many pictures just trying to keep up with the family.:) It's going to get a lot busier when the twins grow up. So many twins so far which I'm sure has everything to do with that twin perk for the family sims.

    2. Oh dear, that's me and my bad eyesight again! Sorry about the Neil/Nell confusion :-)

  2. My Sims seem to have a prolific amount of twins too :)
    They seem like a nice family to play and their house is very nice.
    I remember the drama from the Aspir's house- it's always amusing when it spills over into others' houses :D

    1. Thanks for reading. The twins have been crazy, I'm trying to keep this hood from exploding, but with the way Risky is working currently I'm going to need a lot more deaths. :) The family was nice, and I love their house. They really need an additional bedroom for the twins, but don't have the money yet. I worry what I will find when eventually we get back to the Aspir's, it's going to be interesting.

  3. lovely round lots of things happening It is good to always have some drama, make playing the sims go faster as well.

    1. It makes more interesting reading material at the very least. There was so much going on at this house I'm kind of hoping for something slightly slower soon. :) Thanks for reading.

  4. Ooh yay another update! Made my evening:)

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying. I am getting back into playing more frequently, right now in my competition hood Clovercrest. Then I need to finish Fellowship One. Then I will be back in Breeze Point in the first time in years. In between I'm sure I play a few rounds here. :) Lots of siming to do, so little time.
