Introducing the Jackson’s episode 2

Screenshot-7 Screenshot-8 Screenshot-9

The twins had a birthday. As they aged up it was clear how fraternal they are. Samaire has her mother’s dark brown hair and honey brown eyes. Kieran on the other hand shares his father’s ginger hair and blue eyes.

Screenshot-67

Cecelia Jackson was given the opportunity to time travel and meet the future Jackson family descendants, She agreed seeing as Rowan knew very little about the older generations in his family. His parents eloped and moved away to start their lives, leaving behind their own families to start anew.

Screenshot-70Screenshot-69  Screenshot-68 The family arrived safe and sound. The twins were more preoccupied with the boogers in their noses than the hover cars gliding across the sky.

The future Jackson’s are mostly ginger’s like Rowan, Mark, Sloane and Kieran. There are a couple of dark-haired descendants as well which resembled Erin, Rowan’s mother.

Screenshot-71 Screenshot-75 Screenshot-76

It was a nice trip getting away from Moonlight Falls for the weekend. The twins were left at the time travelers compound with a baby sitter while Cecelia and Rowan went off to the beach to explore what appeared to be an alien wreckage. This task took all day so by the time they returned to the compound it was very late.

Yet, they both managed to potty train the twins at the same time. It was a rather awesome feat to behold.

Screenshot-80

There was one instance when the family went out to the park and spent a little time together.

Screenshot-81 Screenshot-82 - Copy (2) Screenshot-83 - Copy (2)

The twins had such an awesome time, riding on futuristic riders and helping Rowan turn the pages in their favorite books.

Screenshot-77

All in all the trip brought the Jackson’s closer than ever. In doing so, it made Cecelia and Rowan grow closer. So much so that by the time they returned home, something wonderful happened.

Screenshot-40

Another set of twins on the way!!!!!!!!!

Screenshot-42

Cecelia sat Rowan down one night. They watched the garden network together.

Screenshot-43

Then she took a romantic picture with him.

She revealed the news to him and he was overjoyed.

It was a beautiful moment to behold.

Screenshot-48

He started talking to the babies immediately.

Screenshot-41

This little pesky gnome decided to watch television. I’m not sure what he is watching , but there are robots.

Screenshot-55

Screenshot-56Screenshot-60

Both babies blew out their candles with glee.

Screenshot-65Samaire is a striking little beauty.

Kieran is a second generation ginger.

The handsome little devil.

This lady had a grand time at the party.

Screenshot-71 - Copy

Rowan went down into the twin’s room and sat down in a watermelon chair. It reminded him of the room that he shared with his sister Sloan. He decided to stop straightening his hair and let his natural curls show.

Screenshot-107 (2)

Kieran looking like a mini Rowan appeared talking about how awesome his birthday was.

Screenshot-109 (2)

His sister Samaire (Sam) went to play in her tree house. Cecelia enrolled them both in Smugglesworth prep to give them a chance to experience more and grow.

Screenshot-113 (2)

They both left at 9am and rode in limousines to their school.

Screenshot-116 (2) Screenshot-110 (2)

 

 

 

 

 

 

out already.

Screenshot-118 (2)Rowan took her out to a bar where she dip kissed him out of the blue.

Screenshot-117 (2)

This Marilyn Manson doppelgänger in a referee’s outfit appeared out of nowhere.

He looks pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Screenshot-119 (2)

They went out to a movie later where Cecelia went into labor.

She immediately rushed out of the theatre and drove herself to the hospital.

Screenshot-120 (2)

Rowan raced after her worried sick.

Screenshot-121 (2)

Little Christian and Sarah were born. (Four kids down…..one to go)

Screenshot-123

This little dude jumped past the property as the Jackson’s returned home.

Screenshot-128 (2)

Cecelia decided that it was time for her to return to college. Rowan supported her completely. He would return right after she finished. This way the kids had no excuse as to why they should enroll. I am happy since this was an early wish of hers , but I put it off.
Now she is studying to obtain a degree in business via 24 credits in two weeks.
She is doing very well in all of her classes and is on the Dean’s list.
 
And the saga continues……

 

Sims 3 :Introducing the Jackson’s episode 1

Screenshot-2432

This is Rowan Jackson, when he was still a teenager.

His parents Erin and Mark decided to move to Moonlight Falls and drag their teenage twins with them. ( Ro has a sister Sloane who is two minutes older). They were none too happy. That is until they caught a glimpse of the town. Full of whimsical, strange and oddly pale characters, the town is a pretty awesome place. After a year or two in this town, both kids are pretty well-adjusted. They decided to attend Sims University which is pretty awesome  but, Rowan realizes that he wants more out of his life. So the kid returns home and reconnects with his teenage sweet heart Celia after having his heart-broken by Ruby Sparks. They marry and Cecilia give birth to a set of twins Samaire and Kieran. And so begins our story……..

But, before we begin that tale here are a few throwback pics of Rowan and his family.

Screenshot-2306

Rowan and his sister Sloane. They both inherited their father’s fiery red hair.

Erin and Mark Jackson.

Sloane is chatting away on the phone.

The twins birthday party. Cecilia and Rowan meet for the first time.

Screenshot-2579

Graduation Day!!

Screenshot-2580

The twins after graduation.

Screenshot-2576

They moved in together for a little while.

Screenshot-2840 Screenshot-2839 Screenshot-2838 Screenshot-2836

College was not all it was cracked up to be for Rowan so he left.

Sloane is still pursuing her degree.

Screenshot-2761 Screenshot-2760 - Copy

Here is a closeup of the twins after they aged up.

Screenshot-2690

Rowan is a pretty romantic guy, but Ruby had eyes for another.

Screenshot-107 - Copy

Rowan returned home to Cecilia only to ask her to marry him.

I think I had them move in together for a few weeks.

Screenshot-113 Screenshot-116 Screenshot-120 Screenshot-129

The Wedding was a complete success .

I made sure that it happened the day before Winter.

The guests were a fabulous bunch of Moonlight Falls coolest residents.

Screenshot-135

They cut the cake. I love Ceclia’s dress.

I made sure that Sloane’s dress was the same color.

She was the maid of honor.

Screenshot-148

Days later Cecelia learned that she was pregnant.

Screenshot-166

Rowan met a unicorn. I’m still not sure how that happened.

Screenshot-171

Cecilia went down to the toy shop to buy baby stuff.

She returned home and then went into labor.

Screenshot-185

And the first generation Jackson’s were born.

It was originally supposed to be one baby, but I used a lifetime wish fertility treatment.

Then they had sex and presto twins.

I named the girl Samaire and the boy Kieran.

Kieran is a ginger like Rowan.

Samaire resembles Cecelia.

And the rest is history.

Sorry to leave you hanging!!

Happy New Year everyone,

I apologize for leaving you all hanging. The recent deadline of a graduate school application kept me extremely busy. I spent most nights up late trying to perfect my personal statement. The battle has weighed me down but I submitted it yesterday. I have a few months to wait for a response. No matter what happens I am optimistic for what this year will bring. Also, I am applying to a few more schools as well. This is something that I feared for many years. I doubted myself and my ability to be respected as a writer. Someday soon, I will enter graduate school , work hard and make a name for myself. I never gave myself the chance to be known or even allow something that I wrote to be published. One of my professor’s published my work for me when I was still in college. It was an awesome surprise but in the same respect it scared me. However, I am ready for something amazing to happen. I am opening myself up to receive all of the blessings that are coming my way.

Anyways everyone, I will keep you posted.

Later,

Violet

Generation Reese Episode 33- The silver lining…

Screenshot-2848

 Mom and dad moved out in the middle of the night. They found a nice house just up the road. Morgan still lives in our childhood house. He refuses to leave. No worries because the house is completely paid for and our parents still pay the bills. He is so spoiled, I swear. Lindsey was extremely upset after Tarik left. She tried her hardest to reconcile to no avail. Eventually little Ivy will meet her father. Until, that day it is his loss. Mikaela moved back in with us a day or so before my birthday. She and Merle were having marital problems. It was so bad that Little Clary began to stress eat.  I’m no sure what was going on with Merle. Either way it was good to have everyone together again.

Screenshot-2854

Lindsey threw me an amazing birthday party. It was a big surprise. I didn’t want to really celebrate especially after what happened with Tarik and Lindsey. However, she refused to let the day pass without putting something together. She has a knack for it.

Screenshot-2855

Now that I am older, I can see my mother more and more in my face. Dad’s genes are ever-present, but Mom’s genes are stronger. Even Morgan looks like her which is awesome. All of the grandchildren resemble her as well. Lindsey said, ” You know what’s crazy, Wed. Even our descendants look like mom down to her dark hair and skin.” Mom is getting older now and I know that she is not going to live forever.

Screenshot-2858

My nieces Clary and Mandy finally met. They seemed to hit it off instantly. I believe that all of the grandchildren are going to be as close as my sibs and I are. Family is so important to mom especially after her parents died. She decided to raise all of us first generation Reese’s to love one another. We rarely fight unless its over food. Even then it is not that’s serious.

Screenshot-2859 Screenshot-2860

Just seeing us all together is wonderful. Now that we are all older and for the most part successful. We are the first generation of the Reese family from Sunset Valley. The second generation is growing rapidly. I wonder that they will accomplish.

Screenshot-2861

Merle drank a little too much juice and staggered over to the jelly bean plant by the door. I guess the jelly beans look so good that he had to try them. Mom warned us to stay away from this plant but, I guess that slipped his mind.

Screenshot-2862Screenshot-2863

He caught on fire a few minutes later. All that was left was a pile of ash on the ground.

Screenshot-2864

Sadly Clary witnessed the entire thing. She stood crying her eyes out in the living room.

Screenshot-2865

Dad started to cry as well when he saw Clary crying.

Screenshot-2866

Morgan sobbed as well.

Screenshot-2867Screenshot-2868

Death appeared which made everyone cry even more.

Merle did not look upset or scared when he faced death.

He just followed him with a smile on his face.

That was Merle for you.

Screenshot-2871

We stood in silence in complete shock.

Screenshot-2873

There was nothing that dad could say to us so he did not say anything. We all just hugged one another and the party ended.

Screenshot-2875

Ivy learned how to walk that night. Lindsey held her close and cried. Sadly, Merle was not present.

He would have started dancing then walked into the room and tickled little Ivy.

Little Ivy will never know her awesome Uncle Merle.

Screenshot-2876

I decided that I needed a change. So….this is what I came up with. It’s the best way for me to cope.

Screenshot-2877

I miss Merle so much. He made sure to come see me even though we barely saw one another.

Screenshot-2879

I put on my cap and gown choking back tears.

Screenshot-2880

We all rode in my car to city hall for the graduation ceremony.

Screenshot-2882

I’m glad that it was a dreary day and not sunny.

Screenshot-2883

It was easier for all of us to cope.

Screenshot-2884 Screenshot-2885

. Screenshot-2886

We took the time to take a family picture. Two generations together is truly a blessing.

Screenshot-2887 Screenshot-2888

Lindsey made Clary her favorite Vegetarian Dim Sum when we came home.

She wanted to cheer her up.

It worked.

Screenshot-2889

Meanwhile, Mikaela played with Ivy who was having a good time.

They both bonded together now that Mikaela is unemployed.

Screenshot-2890

Clary glanced outside and saw a lady walking towards our door carrying a basket.

Screenshot-2891

She rang the doorbell requesting to speak to Mikaela. Little did we know that Mikaela had gone to the adoption agency. She wanted to extend her family further, but every pregnancy test that she took revealed a negative result. Merle was against adoption even though he was adopted into our family.

Screenshot-2892

Mikaela crouched down to pick up the boy. It was little boy. So, she named him Jase.

Screenshot-2893

Jase fell right into the family so quickly once he came inside. He bonded with Ivy instantly.

Screenshot-2895

Ivy saw Mikaela and abandoned her blocks to go to see. These two are seriously inseparable.

Screenshot-2896

This is a close up of little Jase. He is such a sweetie pie and a charmer.

Screenshot-2898

The best part is that Clary has fallen in love with her baby brother.

Screenshot-2899

Mikaela worried about her reaction to Jase since she had been an only child for so long.

Yet, she hugged him immediately.

Screenshot-2900

I think that they are going to be so close just like Mikaela was with Randi, Mike and Merle.

Anyways,

I am doing a lot better so I will keep you posted.

Later,

Wednesday

FYI

Hello everyone,

Screenshot-1557

 Abby Rose from A Rose Is Still A Rose.

A new blog that I am working on.

As soon as it is up, I will post a link.

A big thank you to all of my readers.

I apologize for not updating sooner.

Here is a bit of an update:

I plan on creating a new blog for the next season of Generation Reese which I created in May of this year. There are three grandchildren who seem to be growing up fast. Once Wednesday heads off to college then I will decide which kid to narrate the story which will lead into the third generation. So far it is a toss up between Clary, Serena and Mandy. I will keep you posted.

Until then, check out…. The Nimmons Legacy which is nearing its second generation now that Olivia has found a boyfriend. I have my fingers crossed.

I want to free up this blog for more insightful posts and TV reviews.

Thank you again for checking out my blog.

Have a happy holiday and a pleasant day…

Violet..

Believe in yourself

Hey readers, I apologize for not blogging for a bit. Most of my blogs have been my Sims stories. Thank you to everyone who has been following along with the story of The Reese generation. Right now I am currently preparing to return to college and pursue a Master’s degree. I have some of the application finished . All that I need is to write a personal statement and submit my prose. This is something that I have been brainstorming since January. Honestly, I believe that I can do this but, you know that there is always that fear. Can I do this?
Will I get in?

Yet, I spent the past five years wavering back and forth about returning to school. Right now for me, this is a goal that I will achieve. No matter what happens, I am proud of myself that I took a chance. I haven’t told anyone about this because I feel as though I will receive the same feedback that I did in ’08. Those who I discussed this with back then did their best to deter me.

‘You will never get a job with a Masters.”

” Why are you going back to accumulate more debt”.

The fact of the matter is I have to live my own life. Everyone has an opinion but ultimately I make the decision. I believe that I can do this. I do anything that I put my mind to. I believe that if you want something bad enough you have to go out and get it. You have to fight the demons and the negativity. Never give up on your dreams or yourself just because there is no one else who believes in you. My time is coming soon. I am ready for all the blessings that will come.

Take care everyone.

 

Generation 2 episode 32 Revisiting a few Reeses

Screenshot-2636

I am going to be an aunt for the third time now that Kerry is pregnant with the third , second generation Reese.

Something tells me that a little boy is on the way, but in this family you never know.

Either way I am excited.

Screenshot-2641

Mike is a proud papa to be.

He called mom and dad as soon as the news broke.

They were thrilled.

Screenshot-2642

Lindsey was completely oblivious to their love fest as she played with magic nearby.

Screenshot-2643

Lindsey does not seem the least bit worried or stressed about the new baby.

Mom always says that Lin has a one track mind.

If she chooses not to have kids then that is okay.

Me? I hope that she does.

I want to see what her children with Tarik will look like.

Our family has two dominant features dark hair and light eyes.

Screenshot-2644

Screenshot-2645

Mikey and Kerry moved out even after Lindsey set up a nursery in their room for them.

I guess they wanted some privacy not like Lin or anyone butted in on their business.

Yet, I respect their decision.

Growing up with six other siblings will make anyone a bit claustrophobic.

Lindsey respected their decision and cleaned out the room once they left.

Screenshot-2646Screenshot-2648

Later when Lindsey went to the gym she met up with grandma Yumi and Sam.

Yumi is doing well, dating and partying.

Sam on the other hand is still a loner. He never really recovered after dad married my mom.

Still not sure why.

Screenshot-2633

 Lindsey ran to Miranda’s house before she went home.

Serena crawled over to her immediately with a smile on her little face.

Something about that moment changed everything.

She felt like something was missing…in her marriage, in her life.

I tried to get her to elaborate but, she wouldn’t.

Screenshot-2637

She went outside to get some air and all this portal appeared.

Screenshot-2638

Not one to pass up an opportunity, Lin went through it.

She found herself in a little place called Oasis Landing.

At first sight it was fabulous like Elysium.

Science thought of everything possible to make life smoother.

Screenshot-2639

She came upon one of a woman named Angela who I assume is a great, great , great…etc grandchild of Lindsey.

Ang was so happy to see Lindsey that she did not want to let her go.

Screenshot-2640

Angela is the mother of a brood like mom’s.

She has five children which I assumed is a legacy in the Reese family.

Thanks mom!!!

Well, those children are Zachary, Alfred, Ricky , Waylon and Cathleen.

Screenshot-2640 Screenshot-2641 Screenshot-2642

They all were excited to see Lindsey as well.

The family resemblance is uncanny.

I can totally see Tarik in all of them.

Our family is genetically predisposed to have dark hair.

I guess is traveled all through the generations regardless of who married whom.

Yet, Alfred was born with blond hair so I guess there are a few recessive genes swimming around.

Then again, Sam does have brown hair so…

Screenshot-2649

Lindsey created something called a plumbot.

Its a bit of a work in progress.

Needless to say she named it Arthur and went to work on it.

Screenshot-2654

So when it was time to come home, guess who tagged along.

Screenshot-2655

Lindsey was home for less than hour before she pounced on Tarik.

Screenshot-2656

Me, I was too busy doing my hair to pay attention to all the commotion going on.

Screenshot-2676

We all sat together at breakfast.

Tarik was a good mood.

I wonder why? LOL

Screenshot-2693

I went over to Mike’s house to meet my little niece Mandy.

She is so adorable and extremely bright.

Screenshot-2694

Mikey was so glad to see me when I came over.

I think that out of all of us. He is going to follow suit and have a brood like mom.

Lind said that he was the most proactive in the family with all the younger kids.

He spent a lot of time with us , playing and getting us together.

Screenshot-2695

When I came home everything was so quiet in the house.

Tarik and Lin were not speaking to one another.

It was weird.

Screenshot-2696

Tarik left for work and all of a sudden there was Lindsey standing downstairs rubbing her belly in tears.

Screenshot-2698

Maybe this is what they call a midlife crisis.

Accept Tarik is in his early thirties so, I’m not sure what is going on.

Nor can I understand the villainous new look that he adopted.

Screenshot-2699

Arthur and his little sprite were having fun upstairs.

I really want a sprite now.

Screenshot-2700

Classes were cancelled due to the psychotic snowstorm so I went out and started snowboarding.

I am a badass at it.

Screenshot-2702

Lindsey decided that we all should take a family photo. So all of sudden it was mom, dad, me, Morgan is Tarik posing like models in this tiny booth.

Lindsey begged mom and dad to move in with her.

They agreed.

Screenshot-2705 Screenshot-2706

As soon as they came over, they both decided it was time for a change.

So poof!!!!

Here is the aftermath.

Screenshot-2708

The next morning Tarik and Lindsey laid in bed thinking about their marriage.

Lindsey suggested that they both dream about family.

Once it was all over there was tension in the air.

Screenshot-2709

Lindsey decided that this was the moment to reveal the truth.

Screenshot-2710

” Sweetie , I’m pregnant,” she replied.

His reaction was not she was expecting.

” What,” Tarik snapped, ” why the hell would you. You knew that I did not want kids.”

Screenshot-2711

” Are you serious,’ she says, ” you were the one who said lets have kids. I want kids.”

” Don’t put this on me”, he spat back.

Screenshot-2714

” GET OUT”, Lindsey cried.

Just like that Tarik was gone.

They filed for divorce a little after that.

Screenshot-2720

Dad made waffles for breakfast to calm the dark mood in the air.

Its awesome sitting down for dinner with mom and dad.

We haven’t done this since I was a little kid.

Screenshot-2722

That night I had to get ready for prom.

Everything had to be perfect down to my make up.

Screenshot-2723

Meanwhile, Lindsey and mom discussed pregnancy.

Mom was pregnant four times.

Each pregnancy was a different in its own way.

Her pregnancy with me was the easiest.

Screenshot-2725 Screenshot-2726

Here I am in my prom dress.

Its a couture number that Lindsey brought back from Oasis landing complete with futuristic shoes.

Screenshot-2727

Lindsey’s baby started kicking like a rockette.

Mom swears that the baby is a girl.

Screenshot-2729

Lindsey sat down to a read a baby book when her water broke.

Screenshot-2730

She waddled to the car and drove to the hospital.

Screenshot-2731

Daryl was outside when Lin arrived.

He started freaking out that she was in pain.

Screenshot-2733

Tarik came running into the hospital. He stayed by Lindsey side until she delivered a healthy baby girl who she named Ivy.

Ivy is the fourth grandchild born into the 2nd generation of Reese girls.

She joins Clary, Serena and Mandy.

I wonder what I’ll have when I have a kid.

What will Sam or Morgan have?

Only time will tell.

Screenshot-2734

Tarik rode home in the taxi with Lindsey.

I guess he assumed that she would invite him in but, no.

He stood outside in the snow for almost an hour before leaving.

Screenshot-2736

Here is sweet Ivy sleeping in her new crib.

Screenshot-2737

Mom was the first face that Ivy saw in the morning.

Screenshot-2739

She took her out for a stroll.

Ivy was having a ball.

Well, I’ll keep you updated guys…

Later,

Peace Out,

Wednesday Reese.

Lin went into labor a few minutes after this.
