Cassada Play 4 - College for 7 part 1 & 2 weddings

Today you get a double dose of college - the freshman and sophomore years are completed - and a little bit extra. Then I've promised to spend some time with my husband who swears I've been playing for 5 hours, but it can't have been that long.

Let's reintroduce the kids: 7 of em at the Small Dorm together. I couldn't use the Cassada dorms as there were not enough usable rooms in any of them for my large family to attend together.

In order from oldest to youngest that are in college:
Franklin is a fortune sim. He's majoring in economics and his long term wish is to have 5 top businesses.
Darcy is a romance sim. She's majoring in history and wants to whoohoo with 20 different sims.
Moora is a pleasure sim majoring in art. She wants to have 50 first dates.
Leo, Moora's twin, is a pleasure sim who wants to have 50 dream dates. Thinking a little highly of yourself, no? He's majoring in literature.
Laci is a family sim (always has been) and wants to graduate 3 kids from college. She's majoring in art.
Jeremy is a popularity sim and wants to have 5 top level businesses like his brother Franklin. He's majoring in economics like Franklin and hopes they can share the businesses to kill two birds with one stone. Franklin has not agreed to this.
Madelyn, Jeremy's twin, is a romance sim majoring in literature. She wants to whoohoo with 20 sims.
There is one open dorm room and this is the roommate. Big deal, huh? Yep. That's Phil.
And sometimes he's a ghost. /shrug.
Breakfast together is always sweet. Everyone in their PJs is so cute to me.
I changed around the front entryway furniture to have a little jam session area. They also got a spinning ball as a reward for their first semesters' grades. Freshman year saw them with straight As. Sophomore year saw them with As and Bs. Still quite good. They each do one assignment per semester and go to all classes. They're mostly friends with their teachers as well.
Franklin maxed creativity.
Darcy, in efforts to keep her grades up and work on that 20 whoohoos, is having a first kiss with a professor. Ewww.
Erm...I don't care how close of friends you are. I guarantee you that Darcy and the professor would like a little privacy.
Who's this? Terrance! You might remember him as Cass' husband in Cass' Cassada. Teeheehee. Funny enough, Cass is in my Cassada, at university, in a dorm, and hasn't surfaced at all yet.
Moora falls in love with the mascot. Previously a pleasure sim wanting lots of 1st dates, after her first date with Mascot (I've forgotten his name), she changes her mind and becomes a family sim.Now she wants to reach her golden anniversary.
Although Moora is going steady with Mascot, Darcy gets a whoohoo in with him. Sheesh, Darcy! That's the third whoohoo for Darcy. 3 down, 17 to go.
Desperate to start a family, although only a sophomore, Laci calls the matchmaker, forks over her whole savings, and gets set up with Sean. Bleh, more red hair! But what she lacks in nose, he makes up for. Perhaps their kids will be normalish. Two lightning bolts only, but I guess its the best money can buy on campus. They immediately hit if off and go steady.
I think he's in the nursing program. He's always wearing scrubs.
Soon they're engaged. In their junior year, these two family sims decide they don't need to finish college to make their lives what they want it to be and they both drop out and start their future sooner.
Madelyn, after getting no nookie at all in 3 years of college, decides romance is for the birds, and changes her mind to become a pleasure sim. She now wants to be a professional party guest (slacker line) and drops out of college. Having no real plan, she moves back to Jordy and Kim's house while she looks for work. There she is forced to help care for the three little brothers still living at home. Quite a looker, huh?
Now all grown up, here's Laci.
Moora, having decided to start a family with Mascot, also drops out of college. She moves in with Laci for the time being. I promise I didn't drop them out because college was too hard with 7. I thought it fit their stories better and I wanted to take the focus off of Laci, who was set to go, and Madelyn who needed nothing more. I was tired of looking at Moora and she was always googly eyed over Mascot, so she could go. Plus, I want to focus on Darcy's whoohoo-ing, Leo's dating, and building friends for Jeremy and Franklin. Perhaps I can use the freed up time to get one of them into the secret society.
Tell me I'm not the only one who thought Mascot was eating Moora's face. This made me laugh.
Laci and Sean marry. All the family comes. Quite a view from their new place. I forget where I downloaded this empty lot from but its called Azure Place and I put it on the beach.
"I love you, Sean." "And I love you, cash cow...I mean, Laci." "Hey, what?"
The family, all dressed up.
A party crasher, Kim? No, that's what Mascot looks like. Ahhh! I like that Moora was already engaged and I was going to marry her to Mascot no matter what he looked like. She's not superficial. Of course, she's the ugliest of the lot anyway.
Professor says "Mascot used to drunk call me at 3am. Something about some girl named Darcy." "Hey, I have a sister named Darcy..." Stay out of this Leo, trust me.
Moora and Mascot marry. Dang, what's his name?
Right after the wedding, Moora and Mascot had to move out. Moora and Sean simply couldn't get along. Also, Darcy and Madelyn don't get along and they fought at both weddings. Moora and Mascot had already bought a bird, so they took Sandy the bird with them. Laci and Sean are expecting and just got a kitten, Tide. Its a beach house, Sandy...Tide...its a theme. I won't do it to their kids though. Sean is working as an adventurer, although I think teacher is better suited for him, so when its available, he'll switch. Laci is working in journalism, but she'll switch to art - her major - when available.

Cassada Play 3 - Jordy & Kim total 10 kids

Since we last left off, Kim Fanboy has been on a mission to finish those 10 kids she started on. She had 7 at the end of the last installment. Recall the most recent twins, Jeremy and Madelyn. Both quite attractive as children, even if Jeremy was an evil toddler.
The eldest child still home is Laci, daddy's girl who runs for a hug every day when Jordy gets home from work. Jordy and Kim have been working on making more friends so Jordy can get promoted. Its slow going. Laci knows she loves a big family and wants one of her own. You see her here greeting the 10th child. I've spared you the toddlerhood of the last set of twins, Gordon and Ryder, my only same-sex twins of three sets. Leave it to say that Laci spent a lot of time with her tiny brothers playing tickle and enjoying their toys with them. This last child is Allesandro.
Laci grew up and Maxim picked all pink, which also happens to go with her pinkish makeup. Good choice. I think I'll even leave the hair alone for now. We'll see how she transitions into young adult hood. Off to college, Laci!
Twins Jeremy and Madelyn transition together.
"Oh my god, Jeremy, we're so hot!" "I know, Madelyn. What do we do with these new bodies?" "Oh, I think we'll find out." Jeremy is a popularity sim and Madelyn is romance. Or was it the other way around? Off to college, you two.
That leaves only Jordy, Kim, the toddlers Gordon and Ryder, and the infant Allesandro in the house. I think I'll leave the family alone for awhile. I have 7 teens from the family in college and will play them all in one house. What a challenge this will be! I hope I'm up to all that micro managing to keep them from failing out. "Look, I don't care who does this term paper. All I care is that it gets done."

Cassada Play 2 - Jordy and Kim have 3 more kids

Two sessions worth of playing. I didn't have time to blog the first day, so you get a double dose, and boy is it a doosey! Without further ado...

The eldest, Franklin, is now a child. Little Darcy (far left) is the 2nd child. Twins Moora and Leo, bottom, are coincidentally dressed in tropical wear. I have used default clothes for all children, however hair has been changed.
Kim says, "Jordy, let's have another baby!" "You're kidding me, right, Kim?"
Meanwhile, downstairs: Chaos! Leo and older brother Franklin have a pillow fight. I'm missing the picture of the girls, Darcy and Moora, jumping on beds. Leave these sims alone for one minutes and they tear up the house.
A house full of tweens. Or, as my favorite parenting author John Rosemond says "Why god invented boarding school."
Spontaneous synchronized catch.
Number one son grows up and immediately moves away to college. What a pony face, bleh. Although he was adopted by Jordy through the FFS Debugger Courts and assumed the last name Fanboy, he's decided to keep the mask. He kinda likes it. Hides his face, anyhow."Guess what kids? Mommy's pregnant...again." She lets them pick their own clothes. Soon after, Kim has Laci.
Kim's giving birth to...a book of gnomes? Gross! No no... its... its... another set of twins! Cheese and Cake. No, not really. Jeremy and Madelyn.
"I'm a fortune sim. I can't afford SEVEN children!" Jordy goes over the deep end. Its been really hard to keep up their friendships so he can get promoted [read: they haven't been able to do it] so Jordy's been a little dissatisfied. But hey, Kim can only reproduce for so long, right? I mean, someday she'll go back to work at the flower store and not be on permanent maternity leave, right? Please?"...Hey, Jordy..." "Kim, get out." "What?" "You start with that baby stuff and I'll kick you right out of this bed. I swear it." "But Jordy..." "Couch." "..."
Just because you have 7 kids doesn't mean you have to look like it. Besides she has to look good for Jordy if she's going to convince him to knock her up again, right? To heck with going to work.
Darcy becomes a teenager. "Hey! Check out my smokin' body! Now I can finally date." "Hold it right there, young lady. Need I remind you that dating leads to having seven kids. ...Not that there's anything wrong with that..."
Jordy and Kim enjoy a pillowfight in their matching underwear with the twins Jeremy and Madelyn sleeping nearby. that another bump? Oh dear gods, what have you two done?
Laci is Daddy's little girl.
Since I haven't shown them to you yet, here's Jeremy. He eats live crickets. See how evil he looks!
And this is Madelyn. She's the best looking toddler so far.Jordy thought he'd had the worst of it with seven kids and another (hopefully just 1) on the way...that is, until his Moora grew up and dressed like...well. Like someone he'd date.
And if Moora grows up so does her twin Leo. "Look how big and strong I am now, Moora!" "Whatever, Leo." Kim looks determined "Must. Have. More. Babies." All teens immediately move to college.
"Must. Have. More. Babies." Kim! Just wait okay? You're big enough to have twins naturally. The first set was natural, and you're huge. Just wait. "No. Must have more more more babies." Yikes! /runs away.
We have a nanny and a maid and this is what Jordy comes home to?!? Disgraceful. I leave you here. That's enough for now.
