Family 3 in the rotation is the Bruce family.

Left to right: Michael, Dand holding Mhairi, Andrea, and Ramsay.


Dand headed off to work, while Andrea stayed home with the kids to enjoy a lazy Sunday.

For Reno Day, I built a second story onto the house, but ran out of money before I could furnish it. It’s just an empty room for right now, but they should be fine for space as long as they don’t have a huge number of babies.

After several days of nearly nonstop chess playing, Michael maxed his logic skill.

Soon it was time for the newest baby to be born.

Ramsay was thrilled about having a new family member, something he had wanted for quite a while.

Soon baby Malvina was born, with her father’s brown hair and her mother’s skin tone and eye color.

The boys were thrilled to have a new baby sister.

“I hope you’ll both be nice to Malvina and be BFFs with her,” Andra told the boys over a meal of very well done hamburgers.

“What about Mhairi? Shouldn’t we be BFFs with her, too?” Ramsay asked.

Andrea frowned, and turned back to her food without answering. The boys seemed to like their strange looking half sister, but Andrea just couldn’t get used to her.

Dand returned home with a promotion, and also brought Joe Carr from down the street.

“Hello there, Malvina. I’m sorry I missed seeing you born.”


For a moment, Ramsay thought he had scared his little sister.

“Hahaha,” laughed Mhairi, and Ramsay smiled.

As soon as it was light out, Andrea and Dand headed down to the store.

As the business reached level 7, things got very busy, and they decided they had to hire an employee. Vyn made a great cashier.

They got home just in time for Andrea to head off to work, while Dand stayed home with Mhairi and Malvina.

Dand saw the boys off to school, then headed into the nursery to spend the day with his girls.

The boys brought Anya Pavlov home from school, where they had a great time hanging out.

 That night, it was time for a double birthday.

Malvina grew up to look quite a bit like her mother.

Mhairi became a very cute child.

Mhairi got a new bed, while Malvina took over the toddler blanket.

Mhairi decided she wanted a change in her clothes and hairstyle.

Early the next morning, the kids headed out to the backyard for an early morning water balloon fight.

Oh no, why is there a policewoman here?

To drop off the newest family member, of course! The family adopted a kitten named Buttons.

The kids were very excited about the new kitten.

Malvina was more excited about the kitten’s nice soft bed, and never mind that she had one of her own.

He has to put his paws up to reach the food bowl! So cute.

Andrea stayed home with Malvina that day, and began the training process.

That night, the kids brought Feofil Pavlov home from school. Dand made sure that Mhairi learned how to study.

“So, Mhairi, how about that new song? Did you hear it?” Ramsay asked Mhairi over a dinner of spaghetti.

Malvina mostly kept herself amused with her bunny head.

The next morning, everyone spent some time having fun before it was time for work and school.

Dand had the day off, so Andrea headed into work, hoping for a promotion and a big paycheck.

She did indeed return home with a promotion, and also brought Bolts!

The kids brought Dmitri Hamilton home from school with them.

Dmitri seemed to find the bunny head quite fun.

Andrea needed to work on her charisma, so she got some help from Bolts.

“Statues are great, Mhairi. If you do well in school, you can get a good job and fill your house with statues!”

“Whatever, Dad.”

“Today’s our birthday, Ramsay. Isn’t that great?”

“Yeah. I hope we don’t have to get glasses, though.”

“Maybe for our birthday we can go on vacation!” Michael said at breakfast.

“Sorry, Michael,” Dand said. “We’ll be out of money after we pay your school fees.”

Dand had another day off, so he spent the day finishing Andrea’s portrait.

“Where’s Malvina? Peek-a-boo!”

Very much the daddy’s girl, Mhairi headed to the couch to study cooking alongside Dand.

That night, the family gathered around for a triple birthday.

Michael became a Fortune/Knowledge sim, with a LTW to top Gamer. Luckily for him, I think the family already has the necessary electronics in stock at the store.

Ramsay became a Romance/Family sim, with a LTW to earn $100,000.

It was also Malvina’s birthday.

She continued to be very cute.

Makeovers for all!

That’s it for the Bruce family! Next up is the Hamiltons.
