I give up trying to do a family portrait.

So, this will be how it is done except for when new families are formed.

Last time, Tobias was still working on the Nepheris rules.  Olive and Tobias got married.  Tobias then cheated on Olive with Fern (yes, I know I had put Faith, but it was actually Fern seeing as Faith was a toddler at the time.  I did go and fix the last update too).  Vincent was soon born, the twins aged up to child and then Sherry was born right at the end.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-11-47-83

Tobias was on hand to help Sherry with her birthday first thing.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-15-32-91

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-18-39-57

Yvette and Andrew get hair!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-20-34-68

It’s Saturday so it was a lazy day for the kids.  It was mostly spent coloring and playing tag.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-23-04-65

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-25-56-35

Olive takes care of the major toddler skills.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-29-08-24

Which means that Tobias comes home from work (he is now level 4 in Business) to do the fun stuff.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-29-54-17

He finishes off by teaching her the nursery rhyme.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-42-19-62

Tired of being broke, Tobias finally heads to the Pub for the first time.  It was just fitting that Fern was his very first customer.  The pub boasts a bar and three poker tables.  I replaced the poker tables with strip poker tables.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-49-03-81

Tobias got a lot of networking done!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-50-36-07

Donald the Reviewer shows up three times, but never gives a review.  He is such a slacker.  The Pub pretty much served a place for him to do his romantic wants without upsetting Olive.

Woohoo 5 different sims: Done
Makeout with 5 sims: Done
Public Woohoo: Done
Makeout with 10 sims: Done

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 19-59-55-96

Stripping down with Mable and Fern.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-10-46-71

Falling in love with Penny.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-11-54-01

I thought only girls thought he was cool.  Good to know I was wrong.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-15-48-10

One of Tobias’ makeouts.  The girl immediately had a blind date for him.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-16-27-51

Despite the blue lipstick, she is pretty cute.  They had a lovely date and lots of woohoo.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-30-47-84

He ended up best friends with Doreen.  Ugh.  Someone remind me to give Clarence a makeover.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 20-58-39-72

I had no clue the pub had a side yard.  I moved the ticket machine over here to free up the front of the place.  Tobias is getting his time on top of Fern done.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-02-14-35

One last energize before heading home.  He leaves with about $150,000, a gold sales badge, and a Rank 5 business.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-04-08-14

Stop that!  You’re home now and she’s hugely pregnant!
Tobias:  At least I can’t knock her up!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-09-09-03

Ebony Holland enjoyed her date apparently.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-13-26-34

Tobias found out that Vincent had not learned his rhymes.  It took all night because he was not about to waste smart milk for one skill.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-33-59-18

Olive realized quite fast that they had money.  She talked Tobias into letting her buy the expensive telescope and throwing out the cheap one.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-34-49-12

Toddler time!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-38-39-00

Andrew brought Jessie Gibson home from school.  They had an epic water balloon fight out back with Yvette that lasted half the night.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-42-27-60

Olive’s LTW is to have 2 pet best friends.  Alphonse was a good option at first, but he got aggressive and started growling every time Olive tried to be nice after the first pet.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-44-37-08

So of course that means that she heads to the (now) un-owned pet store.  She finds Justin and Louise having a moment, proving that things might be heating up for them again.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-48-36-12

Olive bought a dalmation named Honey and a Doberman named Brinks and took them home with her.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-50-19-64

I think they will have some interesting looking pups soon.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-55-38-41

Vincent went from bald to cute haircut after his birthday.  He’s adorable.  I might need to have you readers decide if Andrew or Vincent will be heir of the O’Hara house.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-57-55-50

He immediately heads to find dad for some good fun.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 21-58-52-95

Olive tag teams the dogs.  As soon as one has needs to meet, she grabs the next dog and she hits the energizer in between.

Brinks learns to “stay” and “roll over” before the round ends.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-04-34-20

Honey learns to “come here” and “stay”

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-11-22-57

It’s pretty hard to get anything done when Sherry hijacks a dog.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-19-02-30

Don’t tell Honey, but Brinks is my favorite.  All he does is learn fast and gets praised for everything.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-21-21-01

Honey, on the other hand, destroys furniture and growls at people.  She still learns, but slower than Brinks.  I am hoping she calms down with some reinforcement.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-21-32-47

After lots of treats and pets, her LTW is completed.  I forgot to check her 2nd one, but I find out before the round is done.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-23-02-48

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-24-15-51

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-25-50-28

Andrew and Yvette never did their homework the day before, so it is a mad rush to get them all taught to study.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-28-25-23

Play time!  These two get along great and are not quite pack yet, but it’s getting close.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-29-45-41

Olive was quite surprised that they tried for pups!  She wasn’t sure they were friendly enough for it, but I guess they listened because she is pack with them?

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-32-24-27

Honey prefers Vincent’s bed at night.  She has never used her own unless it’s for naptime during the day.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-33-42-44

After ignoring everyone for over two days, Olive gets up at 6:30 to get breakfast ready before work and school.  It’s also the last day of the round!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-40-40-80

The last day means they can move!  After selling the old house the family had $190,000 for a new one.  After buying this they had enough to buy skilling items and toys!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-54-08-89

We left the last house at 8am Wednesday, so that is what it is here now.  Tobias has the day off, which is good because we forgot to skill his charisma and he never got promotion that round.  The kids were rich enough for private school on Tuesday and they head straight off.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-11 22-57-17-75

After calculating net worth, we find out that Tobias has to pay $6,000 and leaves the family with just a little under $3,500.  The community fund is doing fantastic though!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-12 00-13-15-92

Ending look.


  • Making pet best friends wasn’t too hard, but I am so glad it was only 2.
  • Olive’s second LTW is to be a business tycoon!  I am really glad we have a job opening for her.
  • We got lucky that none of the women that Tobias was messing with made an appearance.  I was freaking out about upsetting the family.
  • More teens (and our first male teen) next time!  I can’t wait!
