Generation Reese Episode 33- The silver lining…


 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.


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.


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.


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.

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.


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.


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


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


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


Morgan sobbed as well.


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.


We stood in silence in complete shock.


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.


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.


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


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


I put on my cap and gown choking back tears.


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


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


It was easier for all of us to cope.

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.


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

They both bonded together now that Mikaela is unemployed.


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


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.


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


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


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


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


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


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

Yet, she hugged him immediately.


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


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




Hello everyone,


 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…


Generation Reese season 2 episode 28 Moving on


Hey guys, Lindsey Pierce here,

I went out in the quad to do some reading.

The dorm was a bit too lively for me.


I am trying my best to learn a few more recipes.

Anything to get my mind off Tarik.

Our relationship is going pretty well but, I kinda botched up our engagement.

Now we have to wait to get married.

Which completely sucks.


Gardening is hard when your plant Sim roomie likes to play in the sprinklers.


I went to class in a cute pair a shorts for the last warm day in fall.

This chick in my class wore a micro mini that revealed a bit too much.

I found out the wrong way.


I barely made it to class because of my roomies who piled into my backseat.

During my class , they complained about being hungry and tired.

I turned them out as I studied my skeleton.

For a moment it moved by itself and scared the crap out of me.

Spooky is not the word.


It was hard to look outside with the frost on the windows.

Time to pack away the shorts and pull on my hoodies.

I made an awesome mushroom omelet for breakfast which my roomies destroyed.


Meanwhile, the maid was outside raking leaves.

I tried and failed.

We are the only dorm that has a maid.

Everyone else just fends for themselves.

Me. I was tired of cleaning up behind a house full of women so I hired some help.


Getting used to the cooler weather is a bit of bummer.

But, then again Christmas is just around the corner.


I went out for a cheese Danish to cure my PMS blues.

Man that was so good.


I read a cook book when I came home.

Spaghetti and Meat sauce is the recipe that I learned.

Anything is better than tofu dogs and goopy carbonara.


I decided to try a haunting spell out on the mascot after my class.

She was so scared that she nearly peed on herself.

That was too funny.

As I left some dude decided to air out his business literally and streak around the Student Union building.


I went home and tried a fire blast spell.

Once again I set the grass on fire.


The semester was over and I completely aced all of my classes.


I started to wonder what I could do to celebrate.


Then I started star-gazing for a bit.


I cast a good luck spell on this lady in the green dress.


She was so very grateful to me.


Then a ghost appeared.


No one noticed him….

two ghosts are way scarier than one.


Mikaela painted this pic while she was in college.


I received my finale grades for the semester right when I was doing the laundry.

Straight A’s again.

I will be the fifth college grad in my family and the fourth summa cum laude.


I went out to the beach to fish.

I caught more than my share of fish which was crazy.


I made a big mistake casting a spell on this random chick .

She then tried to kiss me which was awkward.


I made lunch before I left.

( This glitch was hilarious).

It was time for me to go home so I left that night.


When I came home , Merle was fussing on his cellphone.

Clary was busy playing with her knees.


Wednesday fed Clary some cereal.

They have bonded together as fae which is pretty awesome.


I put Clary into bed after she ate dinner.


Wednesday went outside and did a science experiment.


I was reading a recipe book when Merle walked in.

He embraced Mikaela.

I think it is so sweet how deeply in love with her, he is .

I hope to have that love someday.


I cooked pancakes in the morning and everyone sat down to eat.


Even though they did not say it, Merle and Miranda needed their space.

So I packed up my things and left.

Wednesday came along as well.


This is my new home.


I made spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner once we settled in.


When I went to say good night to Wed she was already asleep.


Loneliness got the best of me and I started missing Tarik.

Our relationship was on the rocks but, I was willing to set that aside.

One phone call was all that it took to convince him to come over.


He greeted Wednesday discussing etiquette and cleanliness.

She was actually interested which is surprising.


She left to bike ride over to the fair.


She decided to roller skate when this creepy chick popped out of nowhere.


Tarik ditched his ‘fro for dreads.

Personally, I really liked running my fingers through his hair.


Then came the razor.


I decided to go to Mike’s house to congratulate him with the news.

However, when I got there no one would open the door.


So I decided to go visit Miranda.

She was at work but, Gabe was home.

He introduced me to my niece Serena which is a kick ass name choice.

It took a while for her to warm up to me but, she did.


Gabe was more concerned with playing video games.

Plus, he left her on the floor which was weird.

In fact there is nothing baby friendly in the entire house.



I came home and sat in the kitchen reading a cookbook.


I called my parents to tell them the good news about my marriage and they new house.

They are extremely thrilled.


I decided that night to return to college.

Tarik promised me that he would take good care of Wed.

Its time for me to finish my education and make my family proud.


Generation Reese S2 Episode 26 The Freshman fifteen


Whats up, everyone Lindsey Reese here but, my peeps call me Lyn.

I am the fifth kid in the Reese brood and the third girl.

Last episode Mikaela gave birth to the cutest little fairy named Clary.

Miranda married Gage Briody who is smitten with her.

And I graduated from high school.

Here I am in my freshman year at Sims U.

I’m studying for a degree in Sports.

One day I will be a sports star just like my dad.


I look just like my mom when she was in college. This skeleton dude and I are serious friends.


While I waited for my class to start one of my roommates started arguing with another girl on campus.

Not sure how it happened considering I try not to get involved in drama.


I moved in the Sorority dorm on campus.

My roommates are pretty cool.


I am working hard on my magic.

This is something that I was born with so it should be extremely easy.

Not really.


I upgraded the trash compactor which made the entire kitchen light up like a disco ball.

I learned a few new things like a love  charm and a toadification curse which is pretty sweet.


Mom and dad taught all of us how to cook.

I am not the best but, I cook a mean vegetarian spaghetti if I do say so myself.


My roomies all agree.


I resemble both of my parents in more ways than one.

Now that I am older, I can see my mother in me more than my dad.

This hairstyle made me look more like her than anything else.

So I decided it was time for a change.



A thunderstorm formed right over the town.

It scared everyone but, me.


I decided to garden in the rain. My tomatoes are killing it.

Look how beautiful my lettuce looks.

Mom, Mikey and Mikaela told me to make sure to visit this place a few times.


Here I am wearing some pretty far out Ugg boots.

I went out to check the mail.


Guess what I finally traded in the Under the sea mobile for this bad boy.

The purple is so awesome.


I always have my head in the books no matter where I am.

The last thing I want to do is fail my first year.

Mom and dad would kill me.

Screenshot-1272 Screenshot-1273

I went to a party one night and met a pretty cool guy named Tarik.

So I decided to meet up with him in the park.

He told me all about his love of music.


The moon light made him look so hot and well I went in for a kiss.

He kissed me back.


We went out to a vampire lounge for our first date.

Screenshot-1275 Screenshot-1276

He asked me to watch the stars with him which was romantic.

Unlike my sibs, I am not big on love and all that mushy stuff.


Matthew Kerr was my first boyfriend and he never made me swoon.

Not like Tarik.

I guess this what love feels like.


I cast a good luck charm on a werewolf chick.

She was so grateful.


Gosh, I look like mom with this hairstyle.



I was cruising around town and saw a familiar car.

Mike sold it to some chick who was sick of riding her bike in the rain.

It still looks awesome.


Did I mention I dyed my hair?

Well I did.

The purple looks pretty cool on me.


I jumped in Tarik’s arms when he asked me to be his girlfriend.


He is a hopeless romantic so this is pretty much gold to him as well.


That night I went to the park to have a drink.

I wanted to celebrate by myself for a bit.


Back in the door, I played with magic a bit.


Then it was off to class for my date with a man made of bones.


It started raining once class was over so I raced home.


Tarik through a party and invited me of course,


I wanted a drink but, the keg was empty.

So I took the easy way out and upgraded it with magic.

Now the juice is flowing 24/7.


Tarik helped me with my first keg stand.

Screenshot-1325 Screenshot-1327

We played beer pong until the wee hours.

I was kicking butt.

A part of me believes that he let me win.


The ghost of Ashley DeSorrento showed up.

She was in search of a drink.

Mom told me that she died at a juice kegger.

I guess no one thought to serve plasma juice.


Tarik was feeling romantic again and we kissed.

I decided that it was time to take this relationship to another level so…


It was a beautiful experience for the both of us.


A few days later Tarik threw another party and I showed it.

He promised to protect me always.

I told him that I would do the same.


The next morning I made breakfast.

My head remained in the clouds.


I threw a pool party at my dorm complete with snow cones, pizza and a skating rink.

Being rich does have its perks sometimes.

Everyone who was anyone showed up.

Screenshot-1335 Screenshot-1334 Screenshot-1336

Tarik and I bobbed for apples.

I let him win this time.


Once everything was over I sat down and wrote him a love letter.


I went out to another party during the rain.


Tarik and I were in seventh heaven.


Then it was time for us to say goodbye.

Freshman year was ending but, I did not want to leave him.

He did not want to meet me.


I went home with a heavy heart.

Screenshot-1366 Screenshot-1367

I decided to take my chances with the weather stone that sprouted in the middle of town.

I created a pretty crazy rainstorm.

At home Merle taught Clary how to speak.

Screenshot-1371 Screenshot-1370

The first person I greeted when I came home was Clary.

She was excited to see me.


I went out later to do some early morning fishing.

I caught 2 piranhas and a red herring.


Mikaela taught Clary to walk and was something so amazing to watch.


I was home for a few hours and I missed Tarik.

So I called him and he said that he would visit.


We went out to eat and then attended the summer festival.


I was so happy to be with him that I jumped right into his arms.


Mikaela tried a little fairy magic on the stone but, failed.

No worries there is always next time.


I decided to take a chance while Tarik was there.


I asked him to marry me on a whim.


He said yes.


I found my soul mate and I did not want to let him go for anything.

Matthew Kerr ran away crying from the park when he saw us together.


This is my gift from God I guess and I couldn’t be happier.

After graduation we are going to get married.

Then he’ll be Mr. Tarik Barajas Reese.

I know what you are thinking how come you are not taking his last name.

My fam is pretty progressive so…..yeah.

I will be the fourth bride in the family.

Then I may be I can add another baby to generation 2.

I swear Miranda is preggo but, don’t quote me.

She was craving grilled cheese more than usual.

Thanks for tuning in .

Until next episode..


Generation Reese 2 Episode 23: Another level


Screenshot-1103It feels strange writing this blog post since Mike usually does it.

I am not one to air my feelings in any way online.

Mikaela made me sign up for a Facebook page.

If it was up to me, I would still live a life of solitude offline.


Hello readers…

Mikaela Reese here.

Welcome to Generation Reese season 2, episode 23.

I was created as a clone of my mother Michelle Reese.

We lived in a two-story house on the east side of Sunset Valley.

All my life she never made me feel like a freak or a mistake in any way.

Yet, I knew that I was different.

I am sure you all heard the stories …

mom divorced Anoki because of me.

What you don’t know was that the relationship went sour right after they were married.

The best thing that came out of that union was Mike hands down.

This family has always been a hodgepodge of brainy misfits which is why we are all so successful.

I credit that to Leighton and mom.

It was fate that brought Mikaela to me considering who much I missed being home.
She came waddling toward me , glowing like a lightning bug.

The idea of being an aunt blew my mind but, I was not prepared for her to ask me to move in.

She was living with Lindsey, Merle and Mike.

I agreed instantly, after attending every family get together ,it was a no brainer.


Plus, now I could totally rag on Merle.

The idea of him as a husband was crazy but, as a father….insane.

Mike is married , a college graduate and working in the same building as Mikaela.



Lindsey is going off to college soon.

I am so proud of the little monster.


Being at home, staring at myself in the mirror I decided it was time to ditch the shocking pink tips.

I dyed my hair chestnut-brown and changed up my style.

In doing so, I met a guy named Gage Briody.


Our first date was nice.


It was seriously love at first sight.

I see how mom married Leighton.


Being a loner, I never tried to fall in love.

However, Gage definitely changed me.




Little Clary is such an amazing baby.

She looks so much like Miranda that it is crazy.


Miranda is loving her new role as a mommy.


Merle and Lindsey exercise together sometimes.

It feels like old times being at home doing homework, eating Ceviche and Vegetarian chili.

Screenshot-1117 Screenshot-1118

Lindsey’s powers grow stronger every day.

She is a natural because of Leighton who was a witch before, he became a fairy.

Mike moved out a day or so after marrying a girl named Kerry Crespo.

She is sweet but, has her qualms about the Supernatural.

Screenshot-1119 Screenshot-1120

Mikaela brought Clary over so that Wednesday could meet her.


Wednesday ended up coming over to pay us a visit.


Lindsey chatted with Wednesday for a bit.


Three Reese girls under the same roof.

I was out on my date when she came over.


They ate goopy carbonara.


Mike threw a housewarming party and invited Mikaela.


Lindsey decided to create a potion or two.


Merle tutored Thornton Wolfe in Logic.


I was cleaning the garden when I noticed something rather peculiar.

My Step brother Sam was trying to holler at grandma Yumi.

It was way too weird even for me.


Lindsey went home to spend some time with mom and dad.


Morgan was out wandering the streets of Sunset Valley.


I met up with Gage that night.

We brought our relationship to a new level.

I became his girlfriend that night.


Everything between us was going so well.


Our date concluded outside of the diner.


We watched the star together meanwhile Preston came out to watch as well.

Screenshot-1135 Screenshot-1136

 That night we decided to take our relationship even further…

and I said yes…

Miranda, out

Generation Reese Season 2 Episode 21 The Big move


Seeing Merle and Mikaela in wedded bliss made me reflect upon life.

Most dudes won’t admit this but, I could not take anymore heartbreak.

When Holly was too busy for me I moved on.

Jess kept blowing me off so I left her alone.

Kerry was the only woman who I really clicked with.

I understood how much school meant to her.

Funny how things turn out.


Mikaela found a new gnome to join the two that I brought home from college.

It is this cool ethereal ghost gnome that looks so mischievous.

Lindsey thinks it is the ghost of one of mom’s old gnomes.


Early this morning Mikaela learned some fantastic news.

She is pregnant with her first child.

Mom is so thrilled.

Leighton started crying when he heard.


She surprised Merle with the good news.

He nearly passed out.

Our mother raised him like he was her son.

He came to every family function.

No one ever realized how much he loved Mikaela until their wedding.

Now I get to be an uncle which is pretty sweet.

Be it a boy or girl, I am so game.

Screenshot-1063 Screenshot-1066 Screenshot-1067 Screenshot-1068 Screenshot-1070 Screenshot-1071 Screenshot-1072 Screenshot-1073 Screenshot-1074

Kerry and I could not wait to get married.

Merle set up an arch on the front lawn.

Our witnesses were Mikaela and the ghost of a Tragic clown.

We said our vows and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

We could not be happier.


This is my beautiful wife Kerry , the future mother of my children.

Just wait until mom meets her.

I am sure that she will love her.


We enjoyed eating wedding cake that night.


Kerry went out to take a class on alchemy and study up on everything supernatural.


Mikaela and the tragic clown struck up a conversation of some kind.

She revealed her pregnancy news which made him extremely happy.

I may invite him to a party or two.


Mikaela attended her second prom.


There she goes in the limo.


I hope she has an awesome time.


Merle came home and had a chat with The Tragic Clown as well.

It turns out the poor fellow drowned.

Well, you will be happy to know that I have a job as a coffee courier in Mikaela’s company.

Its not bad and the pay is okay.

The sky is the limit and the story has only just begun.


Generation Reese Episode 19: Just another Graduation


I returned to school after the wedding.

Everyone was sad to see me go.

Screenshot-851 Screenshot-855

There was a welcoming committee outside of my house.

It felt good to be back.


I made sure to hug Paris as soon as I saw her.


Unfortunately, our reunion was short lived.

She decided to streak.

All of a sudden, I watched her being arrested by a handsome cop.

Later I did my best to rekindle the flame with Holly.


It looked like everything was going well.

I found the one or so I though.

All of a sudden, she  was too busy for me.

I couldn’t take it so I broke it off via text.


I did some reflecting while washing clothes at the Laundromat.

“I don’t need her.”

There are other fish in the sea.

All of a sudden one of the machines broke behind me.

I was going to ignore it but, I really needed to improve my Handiness skill.


I tried my luck with this lovely lady.

We hit it off immediately but, our schedules clashed.


I was kind of depressed so I went to the comic book shop.

There I met a Sim who reminded me of Morgan.

Now I know what he will look like when he is older.


I came upon Hilary and our flame blamed bright.


It started with a kiss….


and ended with a woo hoo (or two).


Things were looking up.


Three zombies gathered outside during the full moon.

They fussed about not being allowed to enter the backyard.

It was pretty funny.


I poured myself into my studies, working extremely hard to become one with the skeleton.

Screenshot-875 Screenshot-876.

I went to the park one Saturday morning.

When I grew tried of swimming, I noticed a few plants that were harvesting.

No one was around so I took the liberty of taking a few goodies.


I wen home later and started to improve my skill in alchemy.


I tried to bake some cheesy bread but, it burned.


Hot coals, have nothing on me.

I could walk them all day.

I guess I let my fearlessness from mom.


I can not resist a video.


A funny thing happened when Hilary walked into the shop.


Just as they we were about to embrace, one of her friends decided to come between us.


Obviously this girl has feelings for me  and decided this was the moment to make her displeasure known.

I guess I am not supposed to like someone because of their supernatural state.

Little does she know I am related to a number of faires.

My father was a were.

Lindsey is a natural born witch.


Needless to say that did not go over well with Hilary.

But, I ignored the girl.



We met up later on campus.


After viewing a fabulous movie, we watched the stars.


and shared dinner at the best burger spot in town.


I woke up the morning to play a video game online. So far I was winning.


I took Hilary out on another date.


We played a little pool. If I must say Hilary was kicking my butt.


I waved the white flag and conceded.

The terms of our bet was one woo hoo in the photo booth.


One afternoon, I was waiting outside of the coffee shop and who is there …..Jessica.

She stared a hole in me.

My heart ached a bit but, that chapter is closed.

Less than ten minutes later, Jess ran out in tears.

Karma, I guess.


This guy appeared out of nowhere.

Some say that he is an elf from Dragon Valley

Perhaps , this guy is a elf of some kind.


I went to a party one night. All that I could talk about was Hilary.


I woke up praying that all of this hard work would pay off.


That week, I made sure to take plenty of notes and ask a ton of questions.


I aced my presentation.

Screenshot-911 Screenshot-912

Did some late night studying with Hilary.


I recited every single bone in order.

Screenshot-914 Screenshot-915 Screenshot-916

I threw an epic party at my house.

The food was amazing and everyone who was anyone showed up.


Final Exam day brought forth a number of butterflies that Harlem shaked their way into my belly.


Nerves or not Iaced the test .

Saturday Morning I got my report card.

I aced my Senior year.


I ate victory pancakes.


Then I was on my way to graduation.


Waiting sucks.

Not to mention there were hardly any students at the auditorium.


I look pretty good in my robe.


That elf dude came out of the auditorium looking like the headless horseman.


I got my degree, I am so happy.


One last go round with this do hickey.


One last party, and look a zombie showed up.

That house was so grimy by the way.


This snappy dressed zombie refused to come inside.

Well, college life is over and the second chapter of my life is about to begin.

Wish me luck.
