Welcome back! The Carr family took a while to play, due to lots of running of businesses, but it’s finally time to write it up!

Left to right: Bolts, Nadezda, Joe

 Unlike everyone else who’s started in a starter home, the Carrs actually made it into a new, bigger house before having multiple babies.

It’s not huge – I’m saving up money for Nadezda’s 2nd business – but it’ll do just fine as long as they don’t have quads or something. And it’s built to be expandable next season.

Joe and Bolts headed immediately off to work. Nadezda stayed home on maternity leave, because otherwise she’d end up with a sidewalk birth.

Once again, Annika was the entirety of the welcome wagon.

Her turn’s up next. I wonder who her welcome wagon will be.

“So, do you have any legal troubles, living on your own like you do?”

“I don’t live alone. I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

 “Ooh! Owie!”

“Um, Mrs. Carr, are you okay?”

“This is horrible! I am so never having kids.”

It’s a girl! Meet Akilina.

It’s a girl! This is Irina.

Meanwhile, Joe and Bolts arrived home from work, with friends.

Annika did not want to get a baby handed off to her, so Akilina was a floor baby.

Daddy to the rescue!

As soon as the babies were put on their new blankets, Nadezda and crew headed down to the clothing store. Time to get her first level 10 business done with.

I think we have some new nemeses.

Sadly, Nadezda has a fear of being a witch, otherwise I’d totally turn her into one.

New clothes and makeup for Brittany! I always have a soft spot for townies I’ve grown up from kids.

After 29 hours, Shelby Barrett gave A Whole New You its 125th star! 1 down, 4 to go.

Hee, Servos jumping on couches look funny.

Back home, Bolts called up the matchmaker for his first of 50 first dates. It didn’t last very long.

Then he got roped into diapers. Rats.

 While everyone else slept, Bolts spent the night working on building a car. Nadezda’s next business is built already and costs $45,000, so they need some cash.

The next day, Nadezda, as the only one with any vacation days, stayed home with the twins while Joe and Bolts headed off to work.

Finishing up the car brought back old memories for Nadezda. She had restored so many cars in her teenage years.

 Bolts came home with a promotion to Business Tycoon! He’s the neighborhood’s fourth. Now I just need 10 more player owned businesses.

Ooh, pretty. *sells*

Birthday time!

This birthday party brought to you by a malfunctioning Clean Bot.



OMG so cute.

Lina and Rina were promptly smartmilked.

Since Joe needed a mechanical point, he got the lovely job of repairing the Clean Bot.

Another baby on the way!

Nadezda finished a Munchie Bot! Selling it gave her enough money to buy her next business.

Normally I don’t send pregnant sims to work businesses, but Miss Nadezda’s Dance Studio is a venue business, and Nadezda is permaplat, so we’ll see how it goes.

Ok, so the hot tub isn’t really related to dance, but I figured tired dancers might want to soak their feet.

Sadly, even with all this stuff, the average ticket price is still only $18.

I normally don’t like to pump up the price to ridiculous levels, but $18 is just silly. So Matthew Smith will be the lucky guy paying $5000 an hour to get in. That should help recoup costs.

 Still with that silly fear of being a witch. Come on, Nadezda, witches are awesome!

(I have no idea why that little sign is on the ticket machine.)

After letting Matthew Smith in, I decided I’d put down a money order and let playables in for free. To make up for it, non-playables are dazzled into paying $100 per hour.

Pregnant bellies, hee!

Aglaya spent about 8 hours in the dance sphere, and got some muscles to show for it.

Back home, the twins got makeovers and adorable matching outfits.

These girls are so cute. Seriously. I can’t wait for them to grow up, and I want them to stay toddlers forever.

Again, Joe and Bolts headed off for work while Nadezda stayed home.

The girls pretty much spent the day napping. Nadezda too.

Joe got a promotion, hooray!

As soon as the boys got home, Nadezda headed off to the dance studio.

Yeesh, these guys like the hot tub.

Back home, Bolts went on a date with his work buddy.

Makari already had max logic, so he wasn’t sure why his brother-in-law had invited him home to play chess.

Nadezda spent the evening teaching the girls to talk.

I missed Bolts’ first kiss. Thanks, ACR.

Bolts spent the night working on another car.

Nadezda burned her omelet. She looks so dejected.


Larisa came by to play with her granddaughters!

My sims really like to talk about soda and how bad it is for you.

Why does everyone feel compelled to play chess with Joe? Larisa sure doesn’t look happy about it.

Bolts took dance studio duties for the night.

Mostly so he could date the customers.

“Hello! Can I have this baby now?”

Go for it.

“Just spin and twirl, Nadezda. You can do it!”

Baby boy Semyon

Baby boy Adam

Heh. Nadezda’s brother has two sets of twins, too. But Vanya has the twins perk, and Nadezda doesn’t.

A double crib was squeezed in the nursery. Later I moved the activity table since it was in the way.

As soon as Semyon was placed in his crib, Larisa pounced. She loves the babies.

Bolts realized he’d earn more money getting promotions in another career than he would staying in Business, so he got a job in Intelligence. He wasn’t interested in money for its own sake, but he did someday want to be able to afford a nice bachelor pad with everything a Pleasure sim could want. After his maker Nadezda had her 5 top businesses, of course.

Nadezda headed to the dance studio for the last time this rotation.

Ashton Cooke and Marisa Bendett seemed to get along well.

Outings at venue businesses are good for gaining stars, so Nadezda has about 50 million friends. By the time she left, the dance studio was up to Level 7. A spot in the Dance career is now open!

Nadezda actually made it to work the last day of the rotation!

Bolts got left home with 2 toddlers and 2 infants. Poor guy.

Also, I’m not really sure how safe it is for a Servo to be giving a toddler a bath, but Akilina had green fumes, so what else could he do?

The mail brought love notes from Bolts’ sweeties!

Toddler spam

Nadezda stopped home with a promotion, and went back to work.

I love the pet dividers. Screaming baby, sleeping toddler.

Joe got home (with promotion), and Bolts finally got to go to work.

All right, one last adorable toddler picture.

Because it’s birthday time!

Akilina’s super adorable. So far, at least, she seems to be one of the sims who can rock the huge mouth. She gets to keep her clothes and hair just the way they are.

Irina is also super adorable. She looks a lot like Joe.

Irina did get new hair and clothes. I love her.

I squeezed a couple of beds in the nursery, just for tonight. Next rotation they’ll be getting a nice big addition to the house.

Bolts missed the birthdays, but got a promotion.

Nadezda and Joe stayed up all night getting skill points for work.

The girls’ favorite pastime hasn’t changed. (Neither one of them has tinkering as their OTH, but they both have wants to gain mechanical points.)

That’s the end of this rotation. Next up is the new CAS sim.
