Welcome to Generation 3 with Robin and her extremely long face and pointy chin.
Robin is still a Dog Lover and Active, but did not get an adult trait.
I confirm it in cas. Also, she does not have the gregarious trait because her main aspiration is Soulmate.
Rachel is now Hates Children, Perfectionist, and Genius. She already completed her aspiration.
Rachel takes up fishing in the worst outfit ever (it’s winter).
Her grandmother and cat are out collecting stuff at the same time.
Rachel stops fishing and then can’t fish anymore due to the extreme cold. Might have to top fishing by skill book or will have to wait until spring.
Robin now has to ask permission to drink from two sims. Of course Victoria is the first.
Harvestfest rolls around (again). Everyone is cheering that Robin (and then Opal) piss off the gnomes.
Robin, Opal, Rachel and Belladonna appease the gnomes.
Belladonna has taken up the guitar. She is now done doing aspirations, but that may change since we still have 10 to go (11 if you count City Living, which we are not).

All that and this is the last generation. Hoooboy.
Now back to the update.
Robin has maxed her Vampire Lore skill, but she isn’t even a Prime Vampire yet.
Robin: Kind of hard to do when all you let us leave the lot for is the store or the clubhouse.
These vampires are stupid. I had to put all skill items that were outside in a new basement because they were all cooking themselves in the sun to get to them.
It does clear the yard and house of all this crap cluttering it up too.
It’s about damn time.
Victoria: Can I be done now? I’m too old for this crap.
How about you quit your job and start the curator aspiration. PLEASE?
Belladonna still has not topped her career yet either. She had 4 days off then harvestfest and another day off. It’s crazy that she only works like 2 or 3 days a week.
Victoria (I’m pretty sure this is the next day) fails at the new water slide.
Rachel is now tied to doing the DJ Mixing skill.
How the heck are you gaining guitar skill by singing? We don’t need you to do that one.
Rachel, Robin and Opal add their pics to the memory wall.
I have not bothered with Paige’s aspiration. I’m way too focused on the adults right now.
This is why Victoria learning the guitar is not needed.
Opal is just doing nothing (aside from keeping Jax occupied and happy), so I bought her a pipe organ.
Opal: Gee, thanks.
Aww, that’s so sad. I really liked Evie, Oscar’s wife…or was it Omar’s?
It’s talk like a pirate day.
Victoria: Why do you keep changing your hair color?
Patrick: Blame Eaxis’ bad genetic coding for child and under.
Robin went out and actually got gardening level 2 so she could evolve stuff. I think this is the best plant so far! Too bad it took 3 generations for it to happen.
Grandpa Caleb enjoying the pipe organ and is able to meet Opal for the first time.
Everyone except Victoria, Patrick and Paige are up 24 hrs a day to skill.
Belladonna is now doing the wellness skill.
I think Robin is up to level 4 now. This one is long and grueling. She can’t scent them, but I love the different vases you can use.
In fact, I have her smoldering at the flea market. She runs inside the Karaoke bar every so often to keep alive.
Heaven Vatore. I can’t recall who she belongs to, but I think she’s an aunt or a cousin.
That’s when I notice that Belladonna and Victoria’s portraits were not grayed out.
Why the hell are you naked?
Victoria: I’m not even sure how I got here or where this drink came from.
Belladonna: I’m here to celebrate my promotion.
Belladonna joins a new career and Victoria is now a Secret Agent.
Here they are quitting their jobs. You can go home now.
Robin had a long day. She did sell several of her flowers though. Rachel is here to work on the Angler aspiration. Robin and her stench are still here because there is a vampire breaking in and she can’t go home.
Nothing good happens until later that night when the twins head home.
WTF? Go inside, moron.
Rachel marks off another item from the to-do list.
Then everyone helps out Opal and Paige with their projects.
Unless you’re Belladonna. Then you get forgotten about in the back of the room (behind the toddler playset in the previous picture).
Rachel heads back out to fish and wayyy back behind her, Victoria is starting out The Curator aspiration (Akira’s if that jerk hadn’t been murdered by Victoria).
It has taken me several days to do this update because my kid ended up almost killing himself doing yard work in tall weeds. We thought we had inspected the yard well enough before he started, but apparently not. He weed whacked right into poison oak or ivy and he is severely, severely allergic to it. It took two trips, one to the ER and one to his doctor over the past couple of days to get the steroid shot to take. Add another 24 hours before the swelling went down. No school for him until next Tuesday to make sure his face goes back to his normal size.
At least this time it was only one side of his head. A year or two ago (some of you might remember this) someone in the area was burning it and Nick inhaled it and ended up in the hospital then for his first meeting with the only thing in the world he is allergic to.
My poor baby. He will probably never agree to any type of yard work again.
Anyway, all of this is what I have been doing in between calamine sessions and doctor’s offices.
Going back in, Victoria and Rachel were still at the park. Victoria drinks a moodlet solver mid-collecting.
I need to remember to lighten some of these up. Her maxed handiness skill gets her into the hidden spot in Oasis Springs.
But it takes her three or four tries to actually make in.
Victoria heads home now that all her stuff is done. Rachel continues on for a few minutes more because she still needs a couple of great catches.
Uponst (if you haven’t seen Kristen Hampton’s Product Testing Tuesday, you are missing out) returning, Jax is having some issues and dropping rainbow poops all over the place.
Robin immediately takes him to the clinic and he becomes her first patient.
He had to get off the table to puke and pass out first though.
Bella gets a promotion.
It’s Harold! I can’t believe Petunia’s husband is so old already.
Patrick is doing something good, apparently.
Robin stayed at the clinic late to work on creating treats. We totally forgot about Opal’s birthday.
She looks exactly the same.
Her traits are now: Bro, Squeamish, Perfectionist, Bad Manners, Insensitive , Emotional Control, Tormentor, Dastardly, and Happy Toddler.
If you can’t tell, Paige and Patrick (because I can’t control him) are not doing anything important. They run wild and do whatever they want.
Luckily you can choose who to open presents with, but I have no clue what Patrick got. I saw a lot of lumps of clay though.
Oh and Robin managed to get this. They have one already, so it was sold.
Opal got her ass kicked by Father Winter.
Victoria collected her 25th item and her aspiration completed. I guess the magic beans were used in the collection completion. I didn’t realize they would be retroactive, so she was working on elements. I think she only needed one more too.
So, Patrick decided to freeze to death.
Belladonna had to add him to a group and then click on the couch to sit together before disbanding the group. At least he lived.
Victoria gets a promotion soon after.
Paige has been sick and this is her second day in a row getting to stay home.
Even Rachel got a promotion.
And no, nothing is happening between promotions except skilling. Boring stuff.
There we go, years and years of skilling.
The fastest way to build gourmet cooking is to make single servings. Since we are Beyond Cheesy, we have to throw each and every dish she makes away. Luckily, she is mostly using fresh produce, so we are not taking a big financial hit.
Finally! My plan is almost done!
Luckily she had reward points saved up, since I forgot the worst ingredient.
Woah, that’s something we can sell!
Victoria becomes Robin’s first sim turned into a vampire. I probably won’t actually count it towards her 5 since she was a vampire already.
Victoria: I love you all so much. See you soon.
And thus, Victoria and Jax move down the street with Caleb’s urn. He was invited to move in and immediately given a tasty treat.
Before I could stop him, he ran out to shovel snow.
This was my first time making Ambrosia and bringing back a sim. Also, now there is two open spots in the main house.
The elder mixologist becomes the next sim to be turned by Robin.
Robin: Didn’t my grandma turn you like 40 years ago?
Miko: Yep. I really love my life.
Robin: Grandma! It’s so nice to see you again.
Victoria: Girl, I’ve only been out of the house for 12 hours.
The real reason the girls are out and about.
Opal is attacking everyone. It only takes a couple of interactions to get the fight option, so it goes fast.
This is Father Winter.
Opal: You two are going to regret crossing paths with me.
She beats the crap out of them both. I was trying to have her declare enemies with the green one, and clicked fight again. It counted towards her five need, so yay!
Her last milestone needs 3 enemies, we got that out of the way even though it will be awhile before she passes her current milestone.
She had the last name Vatore, so I had to delve deeply into the family tree. She is married to Oscar’s daughter, Beverly who we haven’t seen since her unfortunate hair incident (missing mesh) back when she was a child.
Well, the outing comes to an end. We don’t want to miss the twins’ birthday.
I should really clone Robin’s dark form and use MCCC to transplant on her normal form. She is so much prettier. I’m not going to during the challenge, but maybe after.
Make a wish!
Wow, they need makeovers.
Instead, Belladonna takes the family over to Victoria’s house for New Year’s.
Victoria: Gee, thanks for the dead fish.
Belladonna: Just save it okay. When I’m ready to move out, you’re bringing back my Akira.
Belladonna gifted Victoria an angelfish and a death flower.
She already had Akira rejoin the family, but I immediately moved him in with Victoria and Caleb.
They all watched the countdown together.
They never sit around the table at their house! I love that they did and just chatted for the evening.
Patrick and Paige got their makeovers. They both got Magnus’ body, which is the weirdly shaped overweight one.
Still kind of cute, I guess.
It’s getting long and I need to wake the kid up to take an allergy pill and change out his cold pack.
I also have to re-evaluate all the skills and aspirations now that Victoria (and soon Belladonna) will be gone. Those two have done enough for one lifetime.
