Take it to the Skies

Round 3
Russell Household
Previous Update/Next update

Jordan Russell is 70, Paul Russell is 34, Jared Russell is 4, Julia Russell is 4
(Gibson family, Darrell Marsh)

Last time, the paperboy had a surprise birthday and moved in.  Jordan and Paul eventually got married and had twins, Jared and Julia.  Paul also caused a lot of fires.  Sometime in the last round, Paul apparently had a fight with Jordan.  I vaguely recall Jordan flirting with someone.

This basically shows you how it is in the house.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 18-31-09-27

We overplayed a bit last time, so we only have three years with the family instead of four.  Paul starts off by ignoring Jordan and going out to summon the aliens.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 18-32-54-59

While Paul was searching the skies, Jordan decided to see his grandkids.  He invited Eric, Frank and the kids and Louise, Justin and their kids.  He was informed that Louise was at work, so he missed out on seeing them.  He was sad that Eric and Frank decided it was too late and left a few minutes later.

But not before Eric, Frank, Jordan and Jane got to see Paul abducted.

Jordan gave the family time to get home and then made three phone calls.  One to Jacey, one to Jackie and one to Joey just so he could be best friends with them.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 18-37-12-56

Just after the phonecalls, Jordan woke up both kids to make sure that he gave them something to hopefully remember him by.

Paul returned and he did try really hard to play it off like he didn’t have fun, but everyone knew he loved every minute of it.

In fact, he loved it so much that he went back two more times before morning.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 18-47-08-73

Paul was not really interested in whatever Jordan was saying, but he pretended anyway.  They even were able to be friendly enough for a quick date which had them back in love in no time.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 18-53-58-77

Paul decided to try one more time to get abducted, and did.  He returned best friends with his abductor and also a crush.

The five millionth time was a charm.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-03-35-50

The happy moment was interrupted by Jordan who threw a royal tizzy and accused Paul of cheating.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-06-23-25

Jordan’s “punishment” was to cook breakfast and read a mechanical book.  Paul had always wanted to be a City Planner and he got a call that there was an opening in the Architecture career.  He was offered a position at level 6.

The twins may seem nice and sweet, but underneath those smiles, are black hearts.  These two detest each other.  In fact, they are sitting pretty at a -43 relationship somehow.

Paul comes home that evening with a promotion to level 7.  He also entered his third trimester.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-13-11-01

Paul had brought Darrel Marsh home from work and was still there when he gave birth to Eva.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-14-18-00

The shock of it all caused Jordan’s heart to stop and he died, rather unhappily, right then and there.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-14-46-05

Because of Eva, Paul did not get an inheritance, which was fine with him.  He was more sad that he lost 7 of Jordan’s friends, which will hinder his chances of another promotion.

Jared and Julia both had fears of a family member dying and of growing up badly.  Needless to say, they both aged up to child in aspiration failure for having both fears realized.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-20-48-52

Julia’s favorite thing to do is poke/shove Jared until he cries.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-21-49-13

Of course, everyone has their limits and out of nowhere, Jared attacked Julia.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-25-36-85

Paul needed a break from all the fighting, so he called a nanny and took another trip to the stars.  When he returned, he met a strange doggy with weird glowing eyes named Alfred.

Friday morning, Paul woke the kids up for school just in time for the bus and they all left together.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-33-26-43

Just like in the Bryan household, the kids did go to school and still lost a grade for not going.  Jared brought home Gina Bryan and Julia brought home a townie named Mildred Caldwell.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-30-57-58

Eva had her birthday that evening.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-39-25-58

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-40-04-55

The kids spent the evening fighting, so it took a lot of red hand playing with Paul to be in the mood to study.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 19-41-11-84

Jared was finally happy to find someone nice to play with.  I think Gina and Jared are adorable.  I sure hope things progress into the teenage years.

The rest of the night was spent with Eva and getting her skills done.  Paul decided that the punishment for fighting would be for both kids to take turns teaching Eva her rhymes.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 20-18-04-85

2014 has come to a close.  Paul took out a loan to buy a bigger house.  There was just no way he could have 3 kids in one room anymore.  He did not tell the kids that their inheritance made up for half the cost of the house.  He vowed to have that money repaid before they became adults.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-10 20-23-58-80

Eva was not in the mood for rhymes, so Paul has the twins occupied at the activity table while he pretends to dance while he was really just keeping an eye on the kids.

Taxes: $2,000
Loan:  $40,000
He also insists on paying back the $18,000 inheritance.


  • I, for the life of me, cannot figure out what is causing all my sims to get lectured for having alien babies and ruining marriages!  It pisses me off because Jordan is the idiot cheater and has no right to get mad anyway.
  • The twins baffle me.  They both have over 5 nice points and still they hate each other.  They get along fine with everyone else.
  • Alien baby!  I LOVE aliens!  Paul has a want for a baby and 10 babies.  I swear I want to know who slipped baby craze juice in the water supply.
  • Our first natural death.  It was sort of sad, but I was never a fan of Jordan so it was not that big of a deal.

    The twins hatred of each other entertains me.
