Time Marches On

TITLE: Time Marches On

Lot: Strickland - Bulldog, Madelyn, Elijah, Erin, Randy, Rebecca, Rachel, and Royce

Last Visit: Not To Mention.....

Bulldog: Well, time marches on, doesn't it? We all grow, we all contribute, we all age, we all die.
Where did that term come from anyway? "Time Marches On." Ah well. The last time I spoke with you, I expressed concerns about my Melissa taking the car out for the first time. All of my kids are different, each one has presented me with a different worry. This time it is Erin and Elijah.

Since I spoke with you last, alot has happened. Birthdays and births. Yes, we Stricklands tend to have alot of children.

Elijah Strickland
Aspiration: Romance
LTW - To Be A Rock God

Erin Strickland
Aspiration: Romance
LTW: To Become A Celebrity Chef

They both grew up telling me they wanted to go steady with someone right way. Of course, that is the normal thing for teens I guess. It would be good for them to date a little before they settle down with their intendeds. But I kept an eye on them. Yes I did.

Seems Erin met Rocco Trimble. The boy looks a might different. Well, he lives in the same house my sister Roz Trimble lives in, but the boy ain't relation. She hasn't been real forward with anyone where Rocco came from, nor another one from her house, Alexis. Elijah latched on to her.

I reckon it was love at first sight for those two. They were fairly inseperable once they got to know each other and went on a couple of dates. (Editor - these two will be a couple).

I watched that boy. I sat him down and had the birds and bees talk with him. Told him how you treat a girl. I can only hope it sunk in. There's alot of hormones racin' around the house right now and I wonder how me and Mommie (Madelyn) are gonna gonna survive it.

Speaking of Mommie. I told you she was pregnant. She went after some of that cheesecake again. Seems she craves it. The last two pregnancies she had she at it like there was nothing else in the house. She had twins each time, and this last time was no different. She gave me another boy and girl.

We named the boy Royce, and the girl Rachel. This is it for us. Me and Mommie have had all the children we want. We did the same as my parents Kirstee and Chevy. We had 10, that is a nice number.

Here are pictures of Randy and Rebecca. Very Strickland looking. They were next to age after Rachel and Royce was born.

The tend to wear the same colors all the time. They take their 'twin-ness' seriously. heh. Kids. But, after that it was me and Mommie's turn to age. Seems Rachel and Royce was born just in time.

Now we can say we are in our golden years, time to retire and move to Florida. But I don't think so . We still have 6 younguns in the house, two of 'em still in diapers. The two youngest have grown up a little bit, and do go to the potty on their own, but we are always prepared.

In the meantime, I will keep an eye on the homone factory going on around here....Erin and Elijah...

And teach the younguns. After all. That is what Stricklands do. Have kids. See you next time.


Lots of good pictures this time. Not much happened this round except births, skilling, and birthdays. Hard to write. Here are a couple of more intersting pictures that I didn't work into the story.

Bulldog "keeping an eye" on Erin and Rocco.

Elijah dosn't think much of studying

Rebecca is a good little helper and is constantly cleaning.

Erin meets Xuan Robbins and gets some Romance pointers from him.

I am impressed that you not only keep a housefull of Sims satisfied, but right an update about it.

Kudos to you, Wen, and all your amazing stories!


ruby said...

Wow you had those last 2 just in time! Yeah you! OMG 10 kids again? Woman you are insane! LOL
Aw, Bulldog is an elder *tear* he was such a looker... ah well, it happens to the best of us.

Bubbs said...

Is Erin going to break Rocco's heart? Alexis and Elijah seem real happy together. WOW - 10 kids? This family is really growing large. :)

HAHA - Bulldog is really 'watching the kids' while napping. Erin met Xuan? Oh no, is he looking for a younger womb??

Kerry said...

Bulldog is still handsome, even as an elder! I think Rebecca is gorgeous, too. These guys are just a kid factory!

Infinity-Nevermore said...

And yet another baby factory closes its doors. Now that the second generation of Stricklands are almost all elders, it hits me just how close we are to the end. I guess I just have to hope that gen 5 lives long, fulfilling lives.
Keep Erin away from Xuan! He's a bad influence.

ASimWen said...

To Bubbs: Yes, Xuan is always on the lookout for new women...that was my thought when he wondered onto the lot so I sent Erin out to talk to him. GAH! They are relation! Erins' father Bulldog is brother to Xuan's mother Synclare. Yeah...the Strickland connection. Those Original 10 kids of Kirstee and Chevy's mess me up alot. LOL

Katie said...

Wow, I can't believe how much patience you have to keep the kids coming, keep up with them all, earn all the points for the challenge, and write an update for each round. You're amazing!
And Elijah is quite the looker!

Whoah to all the kids in this house. Especially the twin toddlers with elder parents, that seems a bit odd!! Congrats for meeting the 10 kid IW again Wen! That takes dedication.


Galena said...

This gets me sad about thinking, what will happen to the characters after the challenge ends...
Xuan is too funny. Between the last update and this one. Just great.

Rachel said...

Love the hormone factory. Bulldog has his work cut out for him. Yay Rachel is born, Rachel is born!!!!!!!! She looks like a cutie pie so far.
