May I present to you the Owen family.

The head of the house is Nick and he is married to Alice, they have four lovely daughters Pixie, twins Poppy and Flossie and toddler Nell. The young couple thought their family was complete when Alice discovered they were going to expect a new arrival.

Deciding that their current house was too the small they relocated to the Harbour House in Windenburg, however this home is in bad need of a renovation and Alice intends to put her own personal touch to create the perfect family home.

Nikki - This is soooo exciting! I've never started reading about a family from the very beginning so I'm looking forward to seeing what happens! Can't wait to see the house that needs updating and what Alice does with it!

I have never put stories to my sims. The more I read, the more I enjoy the stories that go with them. Thank you for sharing with us.

Alice and Nik loved the location of the Harbour house but Alice found it too dark and didn't reply like the layout. Nik was very impressed with the house either and was fed up with Alice continually moaning about the small kitchen and tiny garden.

"I really loved this house when we first saw it," she told Nik one day, "but I'm not happy and it just doesn't feel right. We've saved a lot of money to refurbish and renovate it but I think we should just buy something new".
Nik sighed, he was in agreement with Alice and wondered how he should broach something he had wanted to tell her, this seemed the deal time.
"Actually babe," he started. "There's something I've been meaning to mention and wasn't sure how to start but here goes." He took a deep sigh and Alice held her breathe. "Well you know how I go running every day?" Alice nodded. "I came across an house on Windenburgh Island for sale, it's cheap as it needs work doing to it, it's on the beach front has lots of room and I think it will be great for the kids, especially now we're expecting our fifth baby."
This seemed to good to be true, Alice threw her arms around her husband, "Oh I'm so pleased, I was worried about telling you I wanted to move, especially as we've only been here a few months."
"I spoke with Windernburgh Estates and they have someone who would actually like to buy this house, they want to put a Fish Restaurant on the plot." Nik replied.
"So, lets go see the house together with the girls and gets things moving." Alice responded.

The house was perfect, their buyer was pleased and offered a very good price for the Harbour House and the seller of Dockside Cottage was just pleased to get ride of his aunts old house and provide him with some extra cash.


Three months later the Owen's were in, Alice bought in the services of Home Interior Company 'Bloom at Cherry Blossom' to refurnish and decorate their new home.

The beach leading form the back garden was perfect and the family spend a happy summer making the most of their little bit of sea. They enjoyed a beautiful summer at the beach.

Everything seemed to be going really well for the family, Pixie and the twins were doing really well at school, little Nellie was flourishing and then some unexpected news.

Now Alice and Nik were both secretly hoping for a little boy, a son to complete their family but these things cannot be planned and one night Alice went into labour and they journeyed off to the hospital. The doctors seemed a bit concerned at first but they told a very worried Nik that everything was OK it was just that their were two babies not one as expected. A shocked Nik held his wife hand as she delivered not one but two beautiful baby girls.
"I know you really wanted a boy", the doctor said, "but two little girls will give you so much joy" he smiled and walked away from the stunned and speechless couple.

08-27-17_4:36:11 PM

Having two babies to look after was tiring but with such a large family everyone helped out.

08-27-17_4:20:59 PM

With the babies taking up so much of Alice's time she decided that she needed some quality time with Nellie so one day when the older girls were at school and Nik was at work she sent the twins to day care and took Nellie to the new Ocean view Park that had recently opened in Windburgh with all new toddler play equipment.

Nellie couldn't decide if she like the slide best

Woot! I'm excited to read an update on The Owens! And, OMG! 6 GIRLs!!!! Where'd the dark hair come from? (Or is that normal for a babies? I've never played them before so I just assumed they'd take on the genetics of the parents).

And, I love their new house and the beach looked like so much fun! And, I bet little Nellie enjoyed her day alone with just her momma!

(When my girls were youngerL, I'd do the same thing. Because they were each 5 years apart it was very hard to find something to do with all of them together that wouldn't bore the older ones. So, every weekend, I'd take one girl out by herself and do something with just her that was age appropriate.

One thing can be said about the Owens' is that they are a very happy family, they care for each other and the children are respectful, well cared for and thriving.
The reason for this is Alice, Nik works hard of course to provide the family with financial stability but it's Alice who does the 3 am feed.

08-28-17_3:19:44 PM

Alice who does the washing, sometimes just before the 3am feed.

08-29-17_5:30:15 PM

Alice who cleans up after the paint got spilt on the floor

08-29-17_5:54:53 PM

Alice who provides nourishing meals, no fast food or convince cooking all meals made from scratch using only fresh ingredients.

08-28-17_3:29:29 PM

Alice however thrives on this and loves caring for her family, it's not all work she finds time to teach Nellie all about shapes

08-28-17_3:24:35 PM

One of the things she enjoys is taking her family out on a Saturday afternoon, they all go for a walk around the island sometimes taking a picnic.

The only thing that makes her sad is that the children grow so fast, it sold seem like a few days ago Bella and Eva were born and now they're toddling around soon it will be time for Nellie to start school. With a birthday coming soon, Alice starts to think about planning huge birthday party as she sets of on her walk with the twins and dog Arnie following behind.

Are you not exhausted by playing with so many sims?
But I like how your story progresses, you really have great poses in your game.
The last one with Alice taking a stroll with the twins is a great one..... look at her pointing her little finger!
Really sweet Nikki.

I still can't imagine having 8 people to control! I have hard enough time with 2! I'm always trying to make someone do something and they won't! Then I realize I'm on the wrong person! It's very confusing to me! LOL

I love the name Poppy, and now you've made me want to buy the Toddler Stuff pack (and I'm being so good!).

I can't wait to read more. :)
