Last round was an extremely busy and crazy round.  Brenna had a wardrobe malfunction at a concert.  Matty and Brenna became elders.  Holly was arrested for her criminal activities.  She also smuggled drugs into Egypt with the help of Tommy.

Sam is up in arms over his wife and brother being criminals. 



Sam tried to talk them both into quitting their criminal lifestyles.  Holly said it was too late for her; she was in too deep.  But after another round of jail time, Holly tried to talk Tommy out of the profession.  “Trust me, you do not want to serve time.  Jail is harsh.  They nearly starve you in there.  You can never get a good night’s sleep.  And trying to protect yourself from all those criminals is stressful.  Don’t end up in handcuffs like me.  Take Sam up on his offer to help you out and get out of the criminal ring before it’s too late.”

Funny story—when Holly was arrested (again!) we got a pop-up saying that the police were holding all of her belongings.  They didn’t want anyone getting jealous of her shower in a can!  I thought that was so funny.  She just had the shower in a can in her inventory from visiting Egypt, but I definitely think that could be useful in jail!  Too funny!


Tommy decided to hear Sam out.  Sam offered Tommy a job as a dishwasher at his diner.  It wasn’t exactly the glorious job Tommy wanted, but it was better than being in jail, he decided.  So Tommy accepted Sam’s offer and began working at the diner for him.


The change of professions is hard on Tommy, but it did bring Tommy and Sam closer together.


Tommy was pretty bored with his job as a dishwasher, so he spent a lot of his time trying out world adventures features.


Despite learning what his wife does for a living, Sam’s love for Holly hasn’t wavered.  He supports her even through her multiple arrests.


Holly continued her drug smuggling activities and reached a level 3 visa in France.  That enabled us to buy the elusive cranerlet nuala and gralladina fran grapes!  That means I have every available WA harvestable growing in my base hood now.

Time for a few adorable toddler pictures because the toddler stage really is my favorite.




With Holly spending so much time in jail and Sam practically living at the diner, Emma was mostly raised by her grandparents, Matty and Brenna.



Notice in this picture the teddy bear from Egypt Uncle Tommy bought Emma last round.


This round I also bought the baby and toddler swing from the Sims Store.  I’m not really a fan of releasing things through the Sims Store instead of through EPs, but I love this object more than just about any object we’ve gotten in an EP.  It’s adorable.



I love the new elder features with Generations.  Reminisce is probably my favorite, but Matty strikes me as the yell at the world elder type.



It’s always hard for me to age up my favorite sims, but Emma’s been a toddler longer than anyone thanks to my double round play.  Here’s Emma’s birthday party.





Emma Winchester

  1. Friendly
  2. Good
  3. Animal lover

She’s even more beautiful as a child.  I know she’s my only generation 4 sim at the moment, but I’m pretty sure she’s going to be my favorite.  She even gives favorites from other generations like Christy, Amber, Raelin, and Elyssa a run for their money in the beauty department.



Emma is particularly close to her grandmother Brenna and her Uncle Tommy.


In Emma’s opinion, Uncle Tommy became the absolute best when he took Emma to a neighbor to adopt a kitten.



Meet Hannah, my first Sims 3 kitten.


Hannah Winchester

  1. Non-destructive
  2. Piggy

Sam is usually working at the diner, but he does spend some time bonding with his father over fishing and gardening.  It’s something they both love, and something that helps the restaurant have the highest quality food, which is very important to Sam.


Holly keeps working on her sculpting skill, but those sculpting skill challenges are hard!

Gnome Sightings:




Accomplishments This Round:

Matty completed the Botanical Boss Skill Challenge.

Sam completed the Master Planter Skill Challenge.  That completes all the gardening skill challenges for him.  Sam reached level 8 of the culinary career.

Holly reached level 8 of the criminal career.  She chose the thief branch.

Tommy reached level 4 of the culinary career, his second career on his mission to be a jack of all trades.  Tommy completed the Consignment Store Reputation, the Consignment Store Sales, the Consignment Store Reputation, and the Butterfly Collector Challenges.  The consignment store challenges are pretty easy if you sell product there.

Miscellaneous—they own a gnome of invention and an Egypt gnome.
