One Crazy Fiber Lady

The Adama Family

March 23rd, 2009 · 4 Comments

The Adama Family saga continues. ¬†When I last left off, Benjamin had just become a teen. ¬†There’s been a lot of things happening since then. ¬†Abe and Christy are now elders. ¬†Ugh. ¬†Elders are a pain. ¬†They get cranky. ¬†And their rate of decay is way faster than the other adults. ¬†And I’ve got two of them in a house.

I moved Benjamin off to college when Belanna became an adult and set about pairing her off. ¬†She isn’t the nicest of people and builds devil snowmen.


A penguin strolled by and struck up a conversation with the snowman..


She did strike up a relationship with Darren Dreamer.


Hearts flew and they went to the alter. ¬†Sorry the light is so cruddy. ¬†They had a nighttime wedding (both had early morning jobs and I didn’t want to wait 😉 and I um forgot to put outside lights. ¬†Sue me.


The folks like him too.  Here they are toasting the newlyweds.  


I swear, I had nothing to do with Abe’s pink tuxedo. ¬†The game takes care of generating outfits and sometimes you get a winner, and others? ¬†a pink tuxedo 😉 ¬†Anyway, I moved the newlyweds to the bedroom where they succeeded with the Try For Baby. ¬†Yay! ¬†The C generation was underway. ¬†

Well shortly after the household went to sleep, I saw Belanna get up and head to the kitchen. ¬†She was super hungry but I didn’t think it was that big a deal. ¬†Until she fell to the floor in front of the stove and the grim reaper showed up!


I couldn’t get any of her sleeping family members up and into the kitchen fast enough to plead for her soul. ¬†Sigh. ¬†Bela was gone. ¬†Good thing I had the spare heir. ¬†

I popped over to the university, forced Ben to drop out (I don’t really like playing them through school) and after forcing the widower to move out, brought him home to fulfill the heir duties. ¬†Much to my surprise, one of the wants he rolled was to resurrect Belanna! ¬†I had no clue you could do that. ¬†Thanks to Google, I figured out how and managed to do just that.

Bela is back! ¬†Oddly enough, she came back with no memory of Darren at all. ¬†When I saw him missing from her family tree, I figured the pregnancy was a non-happening too. ¬†Much to my surprise, 10 minutes after she came back she ran off to the bathroom with morning sickness! ¬†She came back pregnant! ¬†YAY. ¬†I can’t say as I’m upset that Darren is out of the picture. ¬†He was 15 days away from being an elder. ¬†


Three sim days later, she had boy/girl twins:  Caprica and Cavil.


The Bela’s family tree shows just her producing them. ¬†I like that. ¬†I can totally relate 😉 ¬†If you go into the babies’ trees, Darren is there as the father. ¬† I’m glad that if one thing didn’t happen that it was the marriage and not the babies 🙂

Playing the sims, when you’re not dealing with elders, babies and/or pregnant women is super knitting gaming. ¬†There’s alot of sitting around and waiting for things to happen. ¬†Especially when the household works or they are all sleeping, even though the game goes into fast forward mode, there’s still waiting time. ¬†Presenting my Sims sock.


Just a plain-jane stockinette sock in Colinette Jitterbug.  US1 over 52st makes them fast socks.  

Craft on!
