Ashby Lemi – Babies 60 and 61

“UNEDITED”

Screenshot-208

Jenixa continued with her dancing as she entered high school and she became really good at it.  She was the top performer in her dance class and her instructor, Allan Stevens, was very impressed with her skills.

Screenshot-8

One evening she got to class as bit early so she sat down to do some homework when a dreamy eyed kid sat down next to her.

“Hi!” He said a little too enthusiastically which startled Jenixa.

When she regained her wits she looked up at him and gave him a small smile.  “Hi.”

“I’m sorry to be so bold, but you are the prettiest girl I have ever seen.  What is your name?”

She couldn’t help but laugh at this.  Sure she was quite popular in school, having friends from all cliques, but she hadn’t been called pretty before.  Well unless you count her Uncle Logan and her family.

“My name is Jenixa Lemi.  What’s yours?”  She couldn’t keep the laugh out of her tone.

“My name is Cougar Fey.  Why do you find it funny that I called you pretty?”  The boy was generally confused.

Jenixa decided to skip over that part and just address the part about the boys last name being Fey.  “Your last name if Fey?  My uncle Logan’s last name is Fey.”

Panic washed over this boy’s face.  “You’re related to Logan Fey?”

“Well not by blood.  He is the father of two of my siblings and well we just hit it off.  We kind of adopted each other.”  She laughed again.

“Oh good.”

“Good?”  It was her turn to be confused.

“My real, blood uncle is Logan Fey.  I was worried we were related.”  He was a very forward young man.

“Oh..”  Blush filled Jenixa’s green cheeks.  “I don’t mean to be rude Cougar, but I want to finish this assignment before my dance class starts.”

Screenshot-12

“Well then I will join you.”  As they studied Cougar kept on talking.  He told her he was in Sunlit Tides to participate in the dance academy and was staying with this Uncle Logan.  There wasn’t a dance studio where he came from and since the class was very small, there were only four students before Cougar, Mr. Stevens accepted him right away.

Finally the class got underway and Mr. Stevens was so excited to have Cougar with them.  Bringing the class to five allowed him to do the end of the year recital he had always wanted to do so he conveyed his plan right away.

Screenshot-225

All the kids were excited and they got to work right away.  They practiced three nights a week and on Saturday’s.

Screenshot-28

Jenixa, Julie, Farah and Aiden were already great friends having grown up together, but it wasn’t long before they had all accepted Cougar.  He fit with them like a puzzle piece.  Not only was he fitting well with the group he and Jenixa were growing closer, but any time he asked her out she made it into a group thing.  He didn’t mind, as he loved the rest of them, but he was getting frustrated.  He wasn’t sure where their relationship was heading or if they were even on the same page in regards to that.

~~

While Jenixa was busy with her dance, Lolita was busy with….well…everything.  First it was bird watching, then it was bug collecting, then studying bees, and playing with Cesar and then rock collecting.  She was always outside doing something “important” and I couldn’t do anything but encourage her curiosity, but that meant that it was just Joab and I most days.

I spent my days observing my special little boy.  His father is a genie and he was born human but as I watch him I find that he isn’t without some of his father’s special talents.  He seemed to bond with the animals around the house.  It was almost as if he understood them.

Screenshot-250

The cats loved him and they always wanted to be around him.  When he was outside Cesar sought him out.  I also noticed that if you were upset or just having a bad day an energy radiated off him and even though you really didn’t want to talk about it and knew he didn’t understand you , you found yourself telling him your woes.  He truly was something special.

Screenshot-11 (2)

Not to worry.  Lolita and I had our special time as well.  After her great adventures outside she would ask me to cuddle up on my bed and watch cartoons with her.  Granted she fell asleep most of the time but I enjoyed the bonding moments with her.

Screenshot-13 (2)

Of course there were days she didn’t drift into dreamland and she filled me in on all of her adventures.  These days with my kids go by way too fast.

~~

Honolulu Sapphire

As always the challenge must go on and the next birthstone daddy was ready to partake.  His name was Honolulu Sapphire and yes he too was a genie.

He popped into town and in no time at all I was pregnant.  He told he had some business to attend to in another country, and he gave me some contact numbers to let him know as soon as the baby was born.  He left with a friendly hug.

~~

Screenshot-229

Summer vacation was just around the corner and it was time for Jenixa’s big show.  Asher and I dressed in our best outfits and headed down to the dance hall.  I have to admit the show was pretty impressive and all the kids were great, but I was so very impressed with my little girl.  She was such a superstar.

Screenshot-235

The performance ended with a solo from the girls in the class.  Their moves were full of beauty and grace.

Screenshot-236

Jenixa was a vision in peach.  I was in awe that a child of mine had such talent, such grace and charm.  It was a stunning piece.

When the concert was over Jenixa asked us to let her stay for a while.  Mr. Stevenson had an announcement to make.  She would catch a ride back with Cougar.   Asher and I agreed and after chattering to some of the other parents we headed home.

Screenshot-14

Back stage Mr .Stevenson gushed about how good the kids were and he informed them he had an announcement to make.

“I just got word that both Jenixa and Cougar have been accepted into the Sunset Valley dance company.  Jenixa has been accepted as a principal and Cougar in the line.”

The kids cheered this was great news.

“Right after graduation the two of you will be heading to Sunset Valley.  Your first performance will be Swan Lake.”

Screenshot-15

The news made my even keeled girl a bit emotional.  Mr. Steven’s pulled her into a hug and congratulated her.  It was truly some wonderful news.

Screenshot-20

The next day was a Sunday and Asher and I took the kids, who had become a staple at our home, to the beginning of summer festival.  They partook in eating contests, which Farah always won, snow cones, water balloon fights, face painting and skating.

Screenshot-4

Screenshot-25

At first skating wasn’t Lolita’s thing, but she soon got the hang of it and was cursing around the rink.

Screenshot-23

The day was coming to an end and Cougar pulled Jenixa aside.  Without realizing that she was on a hill he tried to take her by surprise and kiss her catching her chin in the process.

Screenshot-24

“What on earth do you think you are doing Cougar Fey?”  She was quite upset with his actions.

“Listen here Jenixa Lemi.  I love you and I want you to be my girl.”  His old self surfacing.

“Don’t do this Cougar….don’t do this!”

“Do what?  Tell you how I feel?”

“You’re going to ruin our friendship.”  She hissed.

“Well honestly my dear at this point it is all or nothing.  After the summer we are moving to a new city and if you aren’t willing to return my love then I will have to move on.”

“That isn’t fair.”  Jenixa was confused about her feelings and Cougar could see it in her eyes.

Screenshot-22

He lunged forward, scooped her up into the air and brought her lips down to his.  As soon as their lips met Jenixa stopped struggling and relaxed into his embrace.  When they pulled apart he smiled at her and said, “Why isn’t it fair?”

“Because I don’t want you to move on from me.”  She whispered back.

From that moment on they were more inseparable than ever.  Ready to face their new lives together.

~~

Screenshot-17 (2)

By the end of the summer my little ballerina, and her boyfriend, had aged up and were ready to venture on to their new lives.

Screenshot-16 (2)

She had aged into a fine young woman and I knew she would make her dad and I proud of her.  We said our good-byes and I held her tight.  When I finally had to let go, my little bird flew out the door.

~~

Next it was birthday time at the Lemi’s and both Lolita and Joab aged up.

Screenshot-3 (3)

Lolita aged into a beautiful teenager.  Most of her feature are attributed to her dad.  Her big blue eyes were noticed by all.

Screenshot (4)

Joab, oh my little Joab.  He grew up into such a sweet and kind hearted little man.  He was respectful and empathetic to those around him, and he loved to dance.

Screenshot-19 (2)

Finally our house was blessed by babies 60 and 61.  Ireland and Kenley Sapphire Lemi.  Both of them inherited their father’s blue skin, but that is where their similarities end.  Ireland got her daddies hair color, my eye color and was human.  Kenley got her grandma Mirid’s hair color, her dad’s blue eyes and she was a genie.  I can’t wait to see how these two will bless our lives.

Thank you all for reading.  You are why I continue doing this challenge.  I hope you like how I have little story lines for the kids.  I have a plan in mind for Lolita and Joab that I hope you all enjoy. 

I would love to hear what you think and you can tell me in the comments.  Please and thank you.

Ashby Lemi’s – Babies 57

Time moved along like time does and the kids were thriving in their new town.  For once the dynamics between two of my children and their father was different from any of my other kids.  This was because Raven and Hardy’s dad was in the challenge community.  Logan knew the importance of being active in his child’s life and he stopped over often to spend time with his kids.

Hardy loved his dad just as much as Raven did, but for some reason Raven had become a daddy’s girl.  Anytime Logan walked into the house, no matter what she was doing, she would toddle over to him, reach her little arms out and say, “Daddy, Daddy, pick me up Daddy.”  Logan would scoop her up and tickle her making angelic giggles escape her lips.

Screenshot-4

It also amazed me that at such a young age she was obsessed about being a werewolf.  Somehow she knew that her dad and brother were different from her and she didn’t seem to like it.  Even though I wasn’t different like them and I tried to tell her that she still didn’t seem to be satisfied with that.

“Mommy, I wanna be woof like Daddy and Harwdy.”  She would say over and over to me when we had or bonding time.

“Baby, you are beautiful and wonderful just like you are.  You are like mommy and that is okay.”  I would tell her.

She would always get upset with me after that and cross her arms over her chest and stick out her bottom lip.  “No..I wanna be woof like Mia.”  Mia is her sister on Logan’s side.  There was no winning with her so I had to distract her with bacon ice cream, a treat she started liking while visiting her dad and watching the little werewolf kids there eat it.

It really worried me that she was so obsessed, but what could I do but hope she grew out of it.

Screenshot-3

Hardy was becoming a handful.  Logan had sat me down and explained that he was a werewolf and that is appears that Hardy had received that trait.  He filled me in on how to raise a werewolf child and I had been following all those instructions, but Hardy was still a handful.  He was a sweet and caring little boy but he had these tendencies and all at once he would start to flail around and then start shredding things up.  It was getting expensive having to replace and fix things.  I just hoped that as he aged he would calm down.

Screenshot-10

My three oldest were in school all day and Asher was at work.  Logan and Becks had their own lives to tend to and I didn’t know anyone else in town yet.  I spent a lot of times with my tot’s watching them and thinking about how fast they grew up.

Screenshot-11

In the morning, after we sent the triplets off to school,  we would go to the park and do some yoga.  It was cute to see them try to copy my moves.

Screenshot-13

That time together was peaceful but often I would sit there and worry about who the next daddy in my challenge would be.

Screenshot-85

“Luna I think you are doing that problem wrong.”  Older sister Lavinnia would help Luna with math which was her worst subject in school, but Lavinnia’s best.

The five children in my household made me so very proud.  The triplets were so very close and the twins were so much fun.

~~

The weather was turning colder and the nights longer and just around the corner was Halloween.  Typically it is my favorite holiday of the year, but this year I felt out of sorts and lonely.  The triplets had a party to go to and Logan had asked to have the twins and Asher had to work.  I agreed to Logan, but the thought of being alone didn’t help the emptiness I felt inside.

Halloween was upon me and after Logan picked up the twins I sat down in the kitchen to dive into a carton of ice cream but hung on the refrigerator I saw a note that said: Go up to the bedroom.  The note was written in Asher’s script so I decided to see what he had waiting for me.  I was sure he had picked up on my mood and decided to try and cheer me up with something.

Laying on the bed was the most amazing costume with another note that said: Put me on.  I figured that he thought that if I dressed up it would help me cheer up.  It was a cute thought and I decided to try it.  I put on the costume and headed downstairs to prepare for the trick or treaters and eat that ice cream, but when I went downstairs I was surprised with all of my friends in their own costumes.

Screenshot-83

We had a great time.  Becks, Logan and Addy came as zombies, Christy Quinn was a circus performer, My boy Newbie and his wife came as fairy folk and Violet and A.J. came as the 50’s couple.  Asher and I were a zombie hunter and victim.  I was so impressed and thankful that my husband flew in our friends and family and surprised me with this.  It was something I truly needed.

I was sad that our out-of-town guests had to leave the next day, but it still had been a grand Halloween.

~~

It was time for another Lemi birthday and since all five children were ageing up we decided to have a pool party.

Screenshot-96

“Hardy, my boy you are going to age up today.  Are you excited?”  I cooed as I looked into the sweet face of my little boy.

My only birthday wish for him was to be able to control his werewolf urges a little better as a child.

Screenshot-101

“It won’t be long now my girl.”  I tickled Raven and we both laughed.

My only birthday wish for her was that she realize she didn’t need to be a werewolf to be beautiful and special.

The party was super fun.  The guest and the kids had a great time swimming, playing and visiting.

Screenshot-103

“Mom look what I can do.”  Weaver called out. I turned just in time to see him do some fancy dive.  It almost gave me a heart attack when he came real close to hitting Luna.

Screenshot-104

The party was a success but I had to admit that I was a bit concerned when Logan was spotted in his werewolf form rummaging in my garbage can.  Remind me to talk to him about that.

Screenshot-105

The triplets turned out stunning.  Lavinnia and Luna with their pink skin, like their dad, and Weaver with his grandma Mirid’s skin tone.  They were all so different and I was looking forward to getting to know the teenagers they were to become.

Screenshot-108

Raven and Hardy, what cutie’s they turned out to be.

“Hey you kids.  Quit jumping on the bed.  You’re going to knock the cats off. ”  They were a rambunctious pair.

Screenshot-112

The night of their birthday was a full moon and poor Hardy couldn’t control changing into his beastly self.  I was a bit disappointed that he was unable to control the change, but at least he didn’t tear anything up.  I guess that is a good start.

Screenshot-113

Poor Raven.  She was still pretty obsessed with becoming a werewolf, but when she saw Hardy change for the first time she fainted over in fright.  I’m really worried about her.  I decided that I needed to have a talked with Logan to see if he thought her obsession was natural or not.  If he didn’t agree then I would have to look into getting her help.

~~

Peridot Guppie

My worries of who the next challenge dad would be was washed away when I got a knock on my door and behind it was Peridot Guppie, the next birthstone dad that had been slotted, asking if I was ready for him.  I asked how he had found me and he told me that he reads my blog and saw that I had used Logan Fey as the last dad.  He was still eager to join so here he was.

Screenshot-129

Peridot blessed me with another baby girl.  It was my first single birth since baby 33 Bay Quinn Lemi.

Screenshot-131

Jenixa Guppie Lemi was a shy, sweet girl who loved “her” cat fire.

Screenshot-134

The currently Lemi Household:  Luna, Lavinnia, Hazel, Fire, Jenixa, Raven, Weaver, Hardy, Ashby and Asher.

Thank you for reading.  I want to say thank you to you all.  

Please let me know what you think either by leaving me a message here of on my facebook page.

Ashby Lemi’s – Babies 49, 50 and 51

Hi everyone..yep it is me again Ashby. I am sure you are getting tired of my blog going from first person to third, but Nina; my good friend and the person who has been writing my blog for some time now, had to go back to her country. She had some family issues she has to take care of. Victor offered to get me another author, but I decided that the rest of the challenge will be written by a Lemi. That being said you will see things written by me and I have given access to all of my kids and they have promised that if there is something to report about them they will log in post it.

So last time the blog left you with news that Orchid and Dutton moving out, Leven and Hooper becoming Teens and Fern, Tyme and Barklay were born, and since then a lot has happened and Leven is going to start off this post.

~~~~
LEVEN’S POV

Hi everyone, it’s me Leven. I’m not a great writer, but I am going to give it a whirl.

Not long after Hooper and I started high school I began to have a shadow. A new family, The Falk’s, had moved into town and their boy, Brighton, began following me around. At first I found it kind of creepy to see him outside of my classes and at my locker at any given time during the day, but then he started to become sort of sweet when he would offer to carry my books and open doors for me. I never let him carry my books but it was sweet.

About three weeks after school started he and his sister, Yusun, announced they were having a party. They randomly handed out invites, but he asked me personally. He told me that he wanted to get to know me better and that is why they were having this party. I told him I would think about going and it seemed to make him happy.

I found myself intrigued because I heard that the Falk’s lived on a house boat. It was rumored that Mr. Falk traveled around the world for his job and living on a boat allowed them to be mobile. I wasn’t prepared to go on my own so I con’d Hooper into going with me.

We showed up at 2 and we were taken back.  Brighton was standing on the deck waiting for us.  I couldn’t believe that they really lived on a houseboat.  

He quickly ran down to great us. He shook Hooper’s hand and threw his arm around my shoulders. I was surprised with myself when I didn’t push it away. It felt kind of nice. He slowly guided me to the boat as he talked about the fun day we were going to have. I found myself smiling up at this handsome face. It was a very strange sensation.

He gave Hooper and I a tour of the boathouse as some of our classmates began to show up. Yusun was a gracious host and greeted them. After everyone arrived we had lunch, and what a spread they had. It was buffet style and we had so much to choose from.

After lunch some jumped into the ocean to cool off while other of us lay out on the deck of the boat and took in the sun.

We had a great time dancing.

Then without warning Brighton swept me into his arms and held me close.  He didn’t care who was watching or what people thought.  He held me tightly in his arms for two songs, and when the second song was over he asked me to go on a walk with him and I agreed.

We found a beautiful spot with grass, not sand, and we both sat down. He pulled me against him and I found myself quite comfortable listening to his heart beat against his chest. He rubbed my back and I smiled widely.

“Leven, I really like you. Will you be my girlfriend?” Brighton sprung the question on me and I sat up and looked at him with a puzzled expression. I didn’t know what to say and I just stared at him.

He chuckled lifting his hand to my check. He rubbed his thumb over my cheek and I shivered with excitement. I couldn’t deny that Brighton made me blush. “I…I…can I let you know at school on Monday?” I stammered like a true awkward teenager.

Another laugh escaped his lips. “Sure.” was his sweet reply as he pulled me back down to him.

That evening as the sun sank into the ground Brighton walked me out and I received my very first kiss. The butterflies consumed me as his lips brushed up against mine and cold when his hands ran up my arms. My knees were weak as he pulled me closer to him and then it was over. It was over way to soon. I found myself wanting to answer his earlier question right then and there, but I felt I had to live up to my promise of Monday.

As I walked toward that car that would take Hooper and I hope I heard my brother snicker in his seat. “Shut up.” I hissed but I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.

I didn’t hear from Brighton on Sunday, but I didn’t mind. I wasn’t the typical high school girl who got upset over things like that, but I was eager for Monday to come so that I could find him, throw myself into his arms and tell him I would be his girl. However, my Monday plans were ruin when I got to school and neither Brighton or Yusun could be found. I was told that their father lifted anchor and took his family to the next business destination.

I didn’t quite believe this horrid rumor I heard and after school I dragged Hooper to the location of the boat house. As we looked at the empty water where the boat was just two days before Hooper pulled me into a protective hug as I sobbed onto his shoulder.

~~~~
ASHBY’S POV

It hurt my heart to watch my daughter mope around the house. I told her that things would be better and that everyone goes through a broken heart at some point in their life, but all I got was a blank stare as I talked. I knew that going though heart-break while being young it feels like the end of the world and I knew she would eventual get over it, but that didn’t stop me from trying to make my baby-girl feel better.

Then I got heartbreaking news myself. News that almost made me give up my challenge for the second time during the time I have been doing this challenge.

My son Jones had been in and out of the hospital since he was born. The doctors never really knew what kept him sick, but every few months he was either home sick or sick enough to be in the hospital.

When he and his twin Seely aged into children I offered, as I do to all my children, to send them to a specialty boarding school if they would like. Seely, as all my other children had before him, opted to stay home and be with me and our family, but Jones, to my surprise, took me up on my offer. He told me he had already done some research and wanted to be sent to a specialty school in Hidden Springs. I was shocked and my first instinct was to tell him he couldn’t go; that he couldn’t leave me, but Asher saved me, as he always does, from that embarrassment.

A few days later I made the arrangements.

The night before he left I stood at the bottom of the stairs and watched some of my children bond over one of their favorite movies, but I could see the sadness in the room.  Seely was distracted as he looked down to the carpet and Leven had been just as worried and upset as I had been all week-long.

I was like a visible shadow in the house that night. I followed Jones everywhere. After the movie was over Hooper, who had been working out during the movie, read Jones their favorite story and with a tear in his eye kissed him on his head before leaving the room. As Hooper moved passed me I put a reassuring hand on his shoulder. He smiled up at me and left the room.

I took his place next to Jones and pulled the blanket up to his chin.

“Mom I will be okay.” He whispered in a tired voice.

“I know you will.” I flicked the tears away from my eyes.

I knew he wanted to say more, but he was just too tired and his eyes drooped heavily. I stroked his hair as he drifted off to sleep for the last time in his childhood home.

Jones flight wasn’t until the next evening so we all had some more quality time with him. We played games and watched old home movies and ate all of Jones’ favorite junk foods and as afternoon faded to evening we heard the cab horn honk in our driveway and the whole family froze in terror. All but Jones that was. He ran to the door and grabbed his suitcase. “Come on guys..I have to go.” He called.

We all said our good-byes before he headed out the door.

Then just he and I walked out onto the porch.

I scooped him into my arms.

He grabbed my face and said, “Mom I am too big to be picked up.” His voice was hallow and somber just like I felt.

“I know. It’s just that I’m going to miss you my beloved boy. We all are.”

“I’m going to miss you too.” He wiped the tear that slipped down my face. “But there is email, Skype and the phone. I will only be gone in distance.”

“When did you get so smart?” I asked.

“I am what I am because of you mom.” He snaked his arms around my neck and squeezed tightly. “I Love you mom.”

“I love you to Jones. Call me when you get there.”

I set him down and watched him run to the taxi.

You can read more about Jones here

~~

I missed my child but he lived up to his word. As soon as he got to school I got a phone call from him and then every day after I either got a call, email or we arranged to skype so I could see how well he was doing, and doing well he was. After two weeks went by we all started to get back to normal and it was time for another Lemi birthday.

Fern, Tyme and Barklay were now children and oh my Barklay got the evil trait.  This should be interesting.

But wait it looks like the girls may be able to hold their own. Don’t they look like they are plotting against Barklay?

~~

The kids, especially Barklay, hated school and when summer rolled around they we so very excited to have three months off and to meet their big brother and his fiancée Newbie and Dawn. Since she could read Tyme had been reading Dawn’s blog and she thought it was so cool that her brother was in it. I asked her once if she thought it was cool that she was talked about in my blog and this is what she said. “Mom,” In a very sarcastic child like tone I should add, “Your blog doesn’t get as much traffic or has as many fans as Ms. Dawn’s does.” She rolled her eyes at me and sauntered off. Gosh I love my kids.

Then the big day arrived and when I heard the cab pull up into the driveway I ran to the door and was greeted by my angel baby and one of my best friends in the world.

“Newbie, my boy!” I flung myself into his arms and he squeezed me tightly.

“Hi mom.” He couldn’t hide his laugh as we released each other. I know we just skyped the night before to make sure everything was in order, but it isn’t the same as seeing your loved one in person and holding them and hugging them.

Next I grabbed Dawn and pulled her into a giant hug as well. “I have missed you both”

“We have missed you too.” Dawn answered for the both of them and my smile grew wider as I realized how much in love these two were.

Just then cab driver came up behind Newbie and Dawn and handed Newbie a cat carrier. “What is that?” I asked puzzled.

“Mom, Dawn and I have a gift for you.” Newbie grinned at me and handed me the cat carrier.

“Oh?” I put it down and opened the door and two beautiful cats cautiously made their way out.

“We know how much you admire the rainbow cats and there are none here on the island so we brought you a breeding pair.” Dawn was so proud of herself. “So meet Hazel and Fire.”

Hazel

Fire

I loved them instantly and I scooped Fire into my arms and Dawn picked up Hazel.

“Come in, come in.” I ushered them inside and gave them the grand tour of the house.

“Wow mom, this house is beautiful.” Newbie, who had his arm draped over Dawn’s shoulders, said as we ended the tour.

“And this island, well what we saw of it on the drive up here, is beautiful as well.” Dawn added.

“Well I can’t wait to show you around, but first let’s get you settled into your room.”

Their visit was such a wonderful one. Newbie and his new siblings got a long famously, but Leven and Dawn really hit things off.

“Leven, my dear why are you so sad?” I watched Dawn and Leven from the top of the stairs. Gosh you must all think I’m a creeper, but you know what? My house my rules 😉

“Ms. Dawn, have you ever had a broken heart?” I guess my telling her everyone goes through it didn’t really sink in, but I was glad she felt comfortable talking to Dawn.

“Of course Leven, before I fell for your brother I was in love with a man named Lerk. I thought he was the one for me and when we parted it was devastating. Why do you ask?”

Leven let it all out then. She told Dawn all about Brighton and how his family just left and she hasn’t even gotten a call, text, letter or email from him letting her know he was okay or that he was sorry they had to leave so suddenly.

Dawn had all the right words for the young Leven and by the end of the conversation they were both laughing. Sometimes a mother’s word is not taken, but the same words from a friend go a long way. I am not sure that Leven is completely over her loss, but talking to Dawn sure did help.

Many mornings Dawn and I would go out in the back, by the little pond we have, and do some yoga.  The children were sleeping late and the men were watching some brainless man show and we just enjoyed the quite.  The chipping of the birds, the crock of the frogs and the splashing of the fish, it was quite relaxing.

“So are you nervous about the wedding?” I asked Dawn causally as we sat in the cool waters of the pond one morning after yoga.

Dawn giggled nervously. “Should I be talking to you about this? You are my finances’ mother.”

“Dawn, I’m your friend too, but if you would rather….”

“Yes!” She blurted out. “I have no idea why either. I love Newbie and we already live together why would the marriage make me nervous?”

I took her hand. “Because things will change. They may be small subtle things, but things are going to change.”

“I’m not sure I want things to change, but I want to marry Newbie with all my heart and soul.”

“Honey, it will be fine. You two are perfect together.”

“Babe!” I heard Asher call from the house. “When are you going to make breakfast? The kids will be up soon.”

I looked at Dawn and we both laughed. “I don’t get him. He is the one who owns his own restaurant and teaches cooking and I am the one who has to make breakfast.” I rolled my eyes and we got out of the pond and headed toward the house.

~~~

AHSER’S POV

Hi folks…I guess it is my turn to write in Ashby’s blog. I hope I don’t bore you all too much.

So two days before Dawn and Newbie were to leave I decided to take Newbie out for a day. Just the two of us doing guy stuff.

We spent the morning working on out golfing skills.  I’m still not that great but we had a good time.

Then I took him to the local bar and grill for some lunch.  Our conversations were filled with guy stuff like sports, our women and food.  It was a great bonding moment for us.  Newbie may not be my child, but I love all Ashby’s children as if they were my own.

After we ate we headed upstairs to play a little shuffle board. I decided that this was the time to bring up his impending marriage. I cleared my throat and began. “So Newbie, are you nervous about the wedding night.” I knew he caught my drift by the look on his face.

Newbie let out a deep laugh and looked at me. “Asher, Dawn and I have two kids together, remember?”

“I know, but your children are grown. It has been a while.”

“Also it wasn’t that long ago I was dating Breeze. I am an adult you know?”

I gulped loudly. This was not going as planned not at all.

“No offence Asher, but you’re not my dad.”

I knew he meant it in the most respectful way and he was right I’m not his dad, but the words still hurt. Ashby has 48 (49 counting Derrick) children and only five of them were mine. It is hard to in a relationship like that. I just wanted all her kids to be mine and to love me as if I were their father, but it just isn’t possible. “I’m sorry if I over stepped. I just thought since your father is an angel and he wasn’t around when you were growing up I could try to help in some way.” I was trying to hide the hurt expression on my face, but I think I failed at it.

Newbie’s face sank and he moved toward placing his hand on my shoulder. “Asher, you are a great man. You take care of my mom, love her and understand her challenge when most men wouldn’t. You love all of us as if we were yours and we love and respect you back. I would be proud to be your son, but we all have fathers.”

His words were precious to me. His mother really did raise him right. I wipe a single tear from my eye and smile at the lad before me.

“Come on Asher. Let’s head back to the house.”

~~~
ASHBY’S POV

It was our last night with our house guests and Dawn and I decided to head out to the local casino for a night of fun and gambling (smart gambling though).

We sat down at a table, both of us not really knowing what we were doing, and we handed the dealer our money and he gave us some red chips in return.

The first couple of rounds both Dawn and I seemed to have good hands. Hands that warranted one of us to get some money for it.

Then our luck began to change.  After we began to start losing our money the game wasn’t much fun anymore and we soon quit.

We had a great time at the casino and I was going to be sad when my friend and son left, but I also knew that I would be seeing them again soon to watch them down the aisle.

It seems like most flights off the island leave at night and Dawn and Newbie’s flight was no exception and since they had most of the day left we decided to go to the boardwalk for the day.

The kids were especially excited for this. We all watched as the younger ones played some skeet ball. Seely was the winner of this game. As I watched my kids I couldn’t help but worry about Seely and Jones being separated, but was glad that Fern, Tyme and Barklay included him in almost everything they did.

I stood next to my husband and couldn’t help but whisper in his ear how handsome he looked and how good he smelled.

These two are just the cutest ever.  I couldn’t wait for them to walk down the aisle and become man and wife.

Asher and I waited in line for the Ferris Wheel.  I just can’t stop myself from admiring his handsome face.

Newbie handed his camera to Asher. “Mom, come take a picture with Dawn and I.”
I walked over to the loving couple and Newbie threw his arm around me. “1…2…3…”Asher called and snapped this picture. FYI Dawn is not preggo….it is just the material on her shirt and the angle of the camera.

Then Newbie looked at his watch. “Mom we need to get our luggage out of your car. Our cab will be here in ten minutes.”

I sighed and looked into his face. I never had enough time with my kids ever. Not growing up and not when they visit. “Okay but first can we get a family picture?”

“Sure.”

I gave my camera to the skeet ball vender and this is the picture he got of us:

Nice looking family if I do say so myself.

After the picture was taken we headed down to the car and got Newbie and Dawn’s luggage and soon their cab pulled up. We said our good-byes and as the sun began to sink they drove away and we got in to the car and headed home.

~~

About a week after Newbie and Dawn left I decided to get moving with my challenge so I called up the next birthday stone guy.

Remember this guy?  This is Linen Pearl.  He was the next guy in line for my challenge and he ran right over when I called him.  We headed to the hospital and soon I was pregnant with baby 49.

During my pregnancy Leven and Hooper aged up and moved out of the house. What lovely young adults they were. Leven with her grandma’s hair coloring and my skin tone and eye coloring and Hopper with his dads hair and skin coloring and my eye coloring, gosh they are going to do well in whatever they do.

~~

When the kids went back to school I decided to do some “spring” cleaning if you will. I had boxes that I inherited after my parents died that I had never sorted through and though this pregnancy would be a good time do this. What I found was priceless and brought tears to my eyes.

It was old pictures of my parents when my mom was pregnant with me.  I missed my parents so very much but finding these was more valuable than gold to me.

hahaha Mom you are too cute. What are you trying to seduce dad when you are about ready to give birth? I’m not sure I would appreciate that. HAHAHHA
Needless to say I got them framed and these pictures now hang up in my home.
I also got a package from my son Jones.

He had gone through the family albums and found a painter to paint this for me. It is a picture of me, my dad (if he were still living) and my boys that inherited my father’s genes.

From right to left (I know we usually say left to right, but it will make more sense doing it this way): Jones, Lawrence (my dad), Me (with my original hair color), Newbie, Dallas (Newbie’s son with Dawn) and Dallas’ son Ash (with Carlie Fey, Logan Fey’s daughter).

~~

The children were settled back in school when the new baby, or should I say babies arrived.

Everyone meet Mason (baby 49), Monroe (baby 50) and Marko (baby 51).

~~

Can you all believe it? I am now at the halfway mark. I am so excited. This is amazing. Thank you all for being a long on this ride. I love you all.
Again as always thank you all for reading and I would love to hear what you have to say about the challenge. Feedback, even bad (but not Hateful), is welcome. You can leave me a message here or on my Facebook page at Ashby Lemi.
Remember if you want any of my children I upload them as Young Adults and you can find their links on the table of content page.

Ashby Lemi – babies 44 and 45

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE
BABY 44 and 45

The house was now filled with two adults, a Teenage boy, twin children and twin toddlers.

This being said the sets of twins tended to bond. Orchid and Dutton could be found playing domino’s or at the park together.


And Leven and Hooper could be found in their room playing. Playing is used loosely, Leven loved to scare her younger brother, but even though she did this Hooper loved her and followed her everywhere.

All this bonding left O’Deen feeling a little left out and his neediness returned soon after he turned into a teenager and he decided to tend to that neediness with a girlfriend, but it seemed that most girls didn’t like needy.


He met Leslie Feldman in his history class and he was very attracted to her. He was actually surprised when she agreed to go out with him and soon the two of them were spending a lot of time together, but their relationship was more about making out then talking or really getting to know each other.

Leslie was a fun-loving gal who liked to hang out with her friends as well as her boyfriend, but she didn’t like to mix them and when O’Deen started to complain about spending time with her friends she started to lose interest with him.


And finally one day she went over to his house to break up with him. O’Deen didn’t like this much and a huge fight occurred and ended with Leslie storming out of his house. She had hoped they could remain friends, but that didn’t happen.


A few weeks later He got involved with a gal named Mercedes Quintanilla. She was a cute sim but all she was interested in is athletics’ and staying fit.


O’Deen found himself at the gym all the time. He liked being fit but they didn’t talk about anything other than work outs and healthy food and physical affection was an illusion. Soon O’Deen just stopped calling her and she didn’t seem to mind.


The last gal he tried to have a relationship with was Bertha Doe. She was a smart gal who loved the library. Every time O’Deen tried to kiss his gal she would pull away. He figure she was just shy or something like that, but two weeks after they started dating he went looking for her. He couldn’t find her at her house, or the coffee shop they frequented so he went looking for her at the library and caught her making out with someone else there.


He was devastated. Ashby tried to calm him, to tell him that this is just high school and when he grows up he will meet more mature women and have better luck in the love department. She told him how handsome he was and any girl would be lucky to have him, but he just didn’t believe her.

Ashby worried about O’Deen giving up on women, but hoped it will return when he ventured out into the “real world”. Until then she made sure to spend extra time with him.

~~

You would think that Ashby would be use to raising a household of children, but every child is different and every group of children who live together are different and with this group she had her hands full.


“Mommy…Mommy..come play with us in the sand.” The Eggplant triplets would call.


As soon as she would sit down in the sand with the twins the younger set of twins would toddle behind her. “I wanna pway.” Leven would squeal as Hooper crawled into Ashby’s lap.

“We want to play with you mommy.” Orchid would howl. She wasn’t taking it well that there were younger “babies” in the house.

“We can all play together.” Ashby would say in a calm voice.

“Forget it. Come on Dutton let’s go play in the tree house.”

Ashby would just pull her babies into her arms and let out a heavy sigh.


The Aquamarine twins also loved books and Ashby found herself reading to them a lot. She loved this time with the babies and just knew that this would enrich their lives. Perhaps one will grow up to be a professor, or a scholar or well anything they want to be.

~~

This time around Asher really hadn’t bonded with any of the children the household. Oh don’t get me wrong he loved them all and they loved him, but the four youngest were momma’s kids and O’Deen had decided that his best friends were the dogs so he found himself with some spare time. In that spare time he decided to take up gold.

With Asher out playing golf and the children vying for her attention left Ashby with little time to herself, but when she got a call from her son Quinn Starr-Bright she found an excuse to do just that, take time for herself.

Asher, who has always supported her spending time with her kids, agreed take care of the house hold the upcoming Saturday. Ashby sat down the kids and told them that she was taking a day and that Asher was in charge. None of them were happy about this, but Ashby knew in her heart they would behave.

Quinn had explained to Ashby over the phone that his company, oh I should take the time right to tell you that Quinn is an architect, had built a horse and dog race track in Sunset Valley and he and Newbie wanted to take her to the grand opening. He told Ashby that there would be several familiar faces there and he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Two days after she got off the phone she got a postcard in the mail with an appointment for a dress fitting for the Friday before. Her boys had went in together and ordered her a fancy dress for the event.

She went to her fitting and she felt like a princess in her fancy dress and big floppy hat. She was ecstatic about the day to follow.

Ashby woke up early in the next morning and put breakfast on for her family. When they were done eating she changed into her new dress and waited for her ride. When she heard the limo honking for her she squealed like a little girl, kissed Asher and the kids headed out for her day.


When her car pulled up to her destination she gasped out loud. The place was beautiful and she was so proud that one of her sons was the lead architect on the project. She couldn’t wait to see her boys and find out who else has been invited to the event.

She opened the car door and was greeted by a large, friendly hand and soon found herself hugging a beaming Quinn. She kissed him on his cheek and then moved to hug her son Newbie. She was so happy they were in town.

When Christy Quinn came up behind her and put her hands over Ashby’s eyes Ashby was startled but when she whirled around and saw one of her very best friends she hugged her and then shoved a camera into her friend’s hand.

“Take a picture of me and my boys, will ya Christy?”

“Sure thing Ash.” Christy turned on the camera and got ready to shoot.

“Come on boys. Hey Christy did you know that Quinn did all this?” Ashby was bursting with pride.

“He told me when he called me. I am so proud of my smart Godson.” Christy snapped the picture.

“Mom, Christy I was part of a team. I didn’t do this alone.” The always modest Quinn expressed.

“Come on let your mom be the proud mother she is.” She slide her arm in his. “Will you take a picture with your ole’ Godmother?”

“Of Course. Mom will you come take one?” Quinn asked.

Ashby got this cute picture by the marble fountain. Awe what is this I see. Quinn making the love of his mother and Godmother know. He is such a sweet boy.

After Ashby took this picture she was rushed by the other special guests. The other guests in attendance were Violet Newbie, Dawn Turner, Addy McKnight, Her and Asher’s first son Derrick and she was introduced to Newbie’s girlfriend Breeze Roman. Ashby felt like a kid in a candy store surrounded by so many people she loved.

Being that it was opening day there was only one race scheduled for the day and it was later in the afternoon. However all the other features of the track was open.


The group started out together and enjoyed seeing the morning rituals the race track held. Jockey’s taking care of their horses, dog trainers working with their dogs and vendors preparing for the day at hand.

“Oh I am going to stop at this gift shop.” Ashby broke from the group and wandered away with Addy on her heels. She had spotted a cute little shirt that would be perfect for her Ivy.

“Breeze you come with Quinn, Christy and I. We would like to get to know you better my dear.” Violet grabbed Breeze’s hand and they wandered toward the lounge area.

Dawn and Newbie found themselves alone. Not thinking much of it Newbie reached over and grabbed her hand as they walked. As they walked a horse, named Cobalt, followed along the fence trying to get their attention.

“I want to pet him.” Dawn said turning in front of Newbie and letting go of his hand.

She reached forward over the fence clicking her tongue trying to make the steed come closer. When the horse began to grow closer Newbie, who had never really been around horses before, got nervous and grabbed Dawn trying to pull her away.

“What is wrong with you?” She asked giggling.

“I don’t want it to bite you. It is so big.” He said innocently.

“Newbie, I wouldn’t put myself in danger. The horse just wants his neck rubbed.” She rolled her eyes at him and he let her go.

She climbed up on the bottom rung of the fence trying to get closer to the horse, but her shoe slipped causing her to fall backwards, but Newbie was there to catch her.

Dawn turned her head to smile at Newbie, but she her eyes met his she didn’t turn away like she should nor did she let go of his hands around her waist. Newbie stared deeply into her purple eyes and his face began to inch closer to hers and Dawn tilted her head back slightly, but when her hat began to slip off her head their moment was broken.

Pulling her hat back on her head she laughed. “Thanks Newbie for catching me.”
Newbie laughed along with Dawn, but he wasn’t sure it was a laughing matter. His was left wanting that would be kiss, but also with an abundance of guilt because someone close by was his girlfriend. “I should go find Breeze.” He muttered and walked away.

“There you are beautiful.” Newbie said putting his hands on the bar and leaning toward Breeze.

“Come here handsome.” She put her finger under his chin and guided his face to hers.

Newbie felt like a deer in headlights when Breeze placed her dainty lips on his, but he returned her kiss. There was no need to ruffle their relationship, was there?

When they break the kiss Newbie took her hand, “Come on I have a surprise for you.”

“What is it?” She asked.

“It wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you.” He chuckled.

“This is such a great experience.” Breeze gushed as she rubbed her cheek against the regal steeds mane.

Newbie had asked one of the Jockeys if he and Breeze could get a picture on his horse. Newbie wanted to know how it felt to be on the back of a horse and frankly he enjoyed it and started thinking about perhaps purchasing one in the future, perhaps when he settles down in his forever home. As much as he loved his brother, Quinn, he didn’t plan on living with him forever.

“Derrick, my boy, will you come and take a picture with me and your brothers?”
“Sure mom.” Derrick wiped his mouth and threw his napkin down on the remaining of his hotdog and stood up.

“Say Cheese.” Violet said as she snapped this great family photo.

The afternoon air was hot and the betting for the race was opening soon so the group took some time to relax.

“So Newbie who are you betting on?” Violet leaned over to hear Newbie’s answer.
Newbie thought the question over. The near kiss with Dawn enters his mind and he blurts out his answer. “Cobalt!”

“Well good luck.” Noticing the betting booth opening Violet stands up, straight’s her dress and heads to make her bet.

After the bets were made the group made their way over to the track to experience their first horse race.

As they made their way over to the track Newbie hung back and grabbed his mom’s shoulder. “Can we talk?”

She assured the group they would catch up and she took Newbie’s arm. “What’s the matter dear?” Ashby asked in her best mom voice.

“Mom, I am struggling with some feelings.” Newbie admitted.

“What kind of feelings?”

Reaching his arm up to scratch the back of his neck he lets out his conflict. “Feelings that I shouldn’t have about Dawn. She is my best friend and I care about Breeze and dating her, but lately I have been getting jealous in regards to Dawn and even thought about kissing her.”

Ashby let out a soft chuckle and leaned her head against his shoulder. “Son, I can’t tell you what to do with those feelings, but what I can say is life happens the way it should and whatever is to come don’t fight it. This situation could result in hurt feelings, but no matter what happens just listen to your heart. Make sure you are happy and if hurt feelings should come about make sure you do it as gently as you can.”

Newbie looked at this mom with a quizzical look. He wanted to ask her what that was supposed to mean and what is he suppose to do about his confusing feelings, but they were interrupted by Addy’s excited voice.

“Come on you two we don’t want to miss the race.”

“Just remember what I said.” Ashby smiled, grabbed his hand and pulled him toward the track.

**I want to thank Elise Costa for making this track**

“And they’re off.” The group heard the announcer over the loud speaker.
The race was so exhilarating and they found themselves cheering, jumping up and down and encouraging the horse they bet on. In the end Cobalt won the race.

Challenge mom’s Dawn Turner, Violet Newbie, Ashby Lemi, Christy Quinn and Addy McKnight had a wonderful time at the track that day. They relished spending time good friends and the short break from their kids. It was a great day!

~~

Ashby got in late and all of the kids, dogs and her husband had been asleep. The next morning when she descended the stairs she was greeted with this site.


“Mama, Mama…” Hooper spotted his mom, nudged the sleeping Sake off his foot and waddled to where she stood. Ashby swept him into her arms.

“How are you my boy?” Ashby asked kissing him on the top of his head.

“I missed you mama.” Hooper whispered into her ear.

“I missed you too sweetie.” Ashby hugged tightly to her son as the realization that he wasn’t going to be a toddler for much longer entered her mind.

~~

Remember this guy? He is one of the Birthstone dads, Diamond White-Birch and he was the next guy Ashby had an appointment with.

I wonder what his kids will look like?

~~

“And the prince and princess lived happily ever after.” Ashby finished the story and kissed the toddlers on the head.

“Again mommy…again.” Leven clapped her hands.

“No sweetie, it is nap time and when you wake up we shall have your birthday.”
“Oktay Mama.” Hooper smiled up at Ashby.

“Sleep well my little angels.” Ashby said as she closed the bedroom door.
She went downstairs to start the birthday bash.

First up the eldest in the household, O’Deen. What a handsome young adult he is. I am sure his luck will change when he moves forward, don’t you?

Orchid got her father’s eyes, but the rest is all Ashby. She is a stunning gal who loves to having fun.

Dutton what is that face? He grew into a very kind-hearted teenager.

These two are crazy. They keep Ashby laughing all the time.

Then it was Leven and Hooper’s turn. They had their picture taken with the puppies and that was the last photo’s taken of Sally and Sake as puppies, because they too aged up.

Sassy Lemi

Sake Lemi

O’Deen said good-bye to his family and moved out after the party.

~~

The day before the new little ones arrived Ashby had an amazing thing happen to her. She was watching a deer run in the field across from her home and decided to try to get closer. The deer actually let her pet him. It was truly beautiful.

~~


And I introduce you to Jones (named after Kira Teagan Jones) and Seely White-Birch Lemi. Gosh these little boys are too cute for words. What do you think?

Ashby Lemi – babies 40, 41, 42 and 43

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE
BABY 40, 41, 42 and 43

***There is a little bit of language in this post as well as a hit of mature content***


O’Deen was a very needy baby, but smart as a whip. Ashby had never before had such a needy baby before. She was very thankful when he learned his skills rather quickly and she was able to age him up.

It doesn’t look like he is too happy to be a child. I think Ashby may have some trouble on her hands, but let’s hope I am wrong.
~~

Even tough Song and Cindi-Lou weren’t as close as they were when they were both in the children age Song still idolized her big sister and took every advantage in getting some sister time.

“Read to me Cindi.” She would beg.

“Oh alright squirt.” Cindi-Lou would say with a smile and they would pick out a book and head to bedroom. Song would get her pj’s on and snuggle down into bed and Cindi-Lou would read her story to her with animated text.

“Mom, why doesn’t Song like me?” Rue was very upset that her twin sister didn’t want to spend time with her.

“Honey, it isn’t that she doesn’t like you. Sometimes people just don’t have the same interests and they find they get along better with certain people.” Ashby wasn’t sure what was going on with her girls, but she couldn’t let Rue walk around thinking she was hated.

“But we are twins. That is something that only her and I share.” Tears filled the little girls eyes.

“Come here baby.” Ashby swept the girl into her arms. “You are loved baby girl. Don’t you ever forget that.” She kissed her on her forehead. “You and Song will find your way to each other, but the time just isn’t now.”
Rue seemed to take that and she hugged tight to her mom letting her hum to her ever so gently.
~~

Scrooge felt a little out of place. Besides O’Deen he was the only boy in the household and with such an age gap between the two of them he decided to get to know Asher better.

“Dad,” Many of Ashby’s kids called Asher dad even though they were never told they had to. “I was wondering what you were doing today? Would you like to hang out?” He asked one sunny Saturday afternoon.

“I was getting ready to head to the gym. Would you like to go?” Asher was very happy that Scrooge wanted to do something with him.
“Yeah sounds like fun.”


“Come on Scrooge you can do it.” Asher encouraged the young man.

“I am not sure I can.” Scrooge’s voice was strained and tired.

“Okay let’s call it a day.” Asher clapped the boy on the back and they went and grabbed some lunch.

When Scrooge and Asher got home that day Scrooge fond O’Deen playing one of his favorite video games and couldn’t resist joining his sibling.

“I didn’t know you like video games.” Scrooge said trying to make his little pixel guy jump over the box.

“You have never asked me.” As I have said before O’Deen is pretty smart.
“Perhaps we can hang out more Dude.”

The two got lost in their game.
~~

Ashby always looks for new things to participate in and when she read that a new family from England needed a place to stay while their house was being built she signed up.

Meet the Dudley family. They are a bunch of fun, silly people. The Dudley family became very close with the Lemi family, but especially the twin boys Zeke and Zion.

In the weeks that they stayed with the Lemi’s love started to bloom.

Zeke and Marlie could be found singing karaoke or just watching the stars together. He just got her and she got him and they were so comfortable with each other.

Cindi-Lou and Zion were a little more carefree. They enjoyed the beach and talking late into the night.

Both love affairs were on their own course, but it was Marlie and Zeke who shared a first kiss first.

And she couldn’t wait to get home to tell her sister all about it.
“What was it like?” Cindi-Lou asked with a giggle.

“It was soft, sweet and kind of wet.” Marlie whispered in her ear.

“Ewwwe…wet? I am not sure I would like that.” Cindi-Lou scrunched her nose up at her sister.

“No..no..it wasn’t gross. It was beautiful. I felt as if my body was consumed by fireworks.”

The girls gossiped into the night.
~~


Scrooge on the other hand wasn’t into girls or making a lot of friends. He wanted to learn music. After school and homework he would convince Ashby to play the guitar with him and whenever the karaoke machine was available he got O’Deen to sing with him.

He was so musically talented but he wasn’t sure if he was going to make a living with him or if this was for his enjoyment.

Whatever he decides I think he is going to be successful. How about you?
~~

Then before anyone was really ready it was time for a Lemi birthday bash and another trio of Ashby’s kids to move out.

First up were the triplets. Scrooge, Marlie and Cindi-Lou grew up beautifully.

They said good-bye to their mom and for the first time they all left separately. Scrooge moved out and headed to a friend’s loft to play music 24/7 and figure out what he wanted to do with this life.
 Marlie and Zeke headed to the apartment they had rented.

While Cindi-Lou and Zion move across town to the house they rented from another of the Lemi kids.

Even though the party was mostly family Song and Rue’s dad Don Turner attended. He was quite shocked that his girls were already teenagers. Look at these two girls. They have the right combination of Don and Ashby don’t you think?

O’Deen had the choice to stay a child or age up and he chose to stay a child for a bit longer.
~~
Ashby decided to take some time before getting pregnant again.

She spent time with her overly needy son O’Deen.

She and Asher took long walks in the park while the kids were at school.

And she took some much needed time with her friends Christy Quinn and Violet Newbie.

They went for a picnic in the park and for some drinks and pool in the evening.

“Do tell us your secret Christy.” Ashby urged.

“Yes do tell us darling.” Violet leaned over Ashby to hear what Christy has to say.

“Well Ashby dear, apparently your Simi and my James have been caught around town together.” Christy whispered with a smile.

“Isn’t that a big strange?” Violet innocently asked. “James and Ashby have a daughter together making Bay and Simi half sisters.”

“Simi and James have no relation.” Ashby defended. She was so happy that her baby girl had found such a great guy like James Quinn.

“I for one approve.” Christy winked at Ashby and the ladies continued on with their night.
~~

Asher even took some time to spend with his brother A.J. When you get the two Lemi boys together you never know what will happen. They had planned to go fishing, but instead decided to go rock climbing and without the proper equipment. Luckily they made it safe and sound and spent several hours up there just talking about life and rehashing the past.

They even talked about their dearly departed friend Connery Bright. The boys missed him terribly and Asher found it hard to bring him up to Ashby. So it was good to have some brother time.
~~

Remember this guy? Yep Ashby couldn’t put it off any longer and Baby 40 was conceived with Amethyst Eggplant.
~~

(From left to right: Song, Rue, Perkins, Peeta (Ms. Young’s son), Ms. Young, Julie, Monika and Spenser)


Song and Rue were doing so well in school that they got chosen to go to France with a group of classmates and their teacher Ms. Young.

It was an opportunity of a life time, filled with hopes, dreams, friends and even romance. The trip was planned for the students to learn about the French culture and they had several assignments they had to do in regards to what they learned. The girls were excited.

Perkins Smith was a ladies’ man, or at least in his mind he was, and had decided on the plane ride that he was going to get with Rue Lemi. He had been watching from a far for a while and just knew he had a chance with her. He waited till they went on their first tour to make his move.

He waited until she was viewing an exhibit taking notes about what she was view. Creeping up behind her he grabbed her around the waist and gently kissed her neck.

Dropping her notebook Rue whirled around screaming. “How dare you! You don’t just come up to a girl and kiss them without their permission.”
“Oh honey you know you like it.” Perkins gave her what he considered his dazzling grin.

“Perkins Smith you are disgusting. Stay away from me.” In a huff she grabbed her notebook from the floor and walked away.
“What a Bitch!” Perkins was put off by Rue’s behavior. “Oh well her sister is kind of hot. I bet she would be into me.”

Seeing that Song was a little bit more on the quieter side then her sister he decided to try a different approach with her. He followed her around, making sure to sit next to her on the bus and volunteering to be her partner when projects were assigned.

Another boy in the group also found himself volunteering to be Rue’s partner. The day that Perkins hit on her she had run out of the museum trying to keep back tears of shame. She had never had a boy treat her with such disrespect before and she didn’t know how to handle it. Her father, Don, her step father Asher nor any of her brothers behaved like Perkins and her mother had never prepared her for it. She wasn’t looking where she was going and she literally ran right into Peeta Young.

“Are you okay Rue?” He asked patting her back when she pushed up against him and wrapped her arm around him. She just wanted to feel comfort.
When Rue calmed down she told him all about Perkins and she felt so comfortable with him. They ended up walking back to the hotel and from that day forward they had become inseparable.

Then a trip to the nectary changed both of the relationships.

Perkins finally swindled Song into making out with him.

And after sharing a bottle of nectar Peeta blurted out that he loved Rue and admitted that he wanted to be with her. He wanted to be her boyfriend.

Rue squeaked with delight and accepted willingly. That night they left the nectary arm in arm, in love and contemplating taking their relationship to the next level.

The trip many good things as I have said before and the most important is that it brought the sisters together. Rue finally had her twin in her corner and since they had grown so close she decided she need to let Song what she thought of Perkins.

“Perkins Smith is a disgusting pig and I just don’t want you to get hurt.” Rue pointed out to Song.

“He is just misunderstood.” Song assured her concerned sister, but I will be careful she assured her.

“I have your back. Just remember that.”

A great time was had by all in France and by the end of the trip they were all ready go to home and get back to their lives.
~~

When Song and Rue were in France Ashby gave birth to babies 40 and 41 Multi-Gender twins. Meet Little Orchid Eggplant Lemi. How cute is she? She has her mother’s hair and skin coloring and her dad’s eyes.

Let me introduce you to Dutton Eggplant Lemi. He is so unique with his skin coloring and his already great style.

The delivery was one of the worst Ashby has had to date and she found herself watching over her new babies as they slept. The doctor’s had told her they were fine, but she couldn’t help but worry about them.

Song took to Dutton like a fish to water. When she wasn’t in school, doing homework or with Perkins she could be found playing with this little guy.
“You are the cutest thing every.” She cooed as she tickled the little boy.
~~
About a month had passed since the girls came home from France and things in their life were changing rapidly. Perkins seemed to be pulling away from Song and one day when they were hanging out in her bedroom things came to an abrupt halt.

They had been making out when Perkins got a telephone call. Breaking their kiss he got up and took it with no regard for Song still on the bed.

“Hey babe….Oh really….Yeah I can come over. Give me fifteen minutes.”
“Wh…who was that?” Song was confused by the word babe and the abruptness that he wanted to leave.

“Cassidy Barns, my girlfriend.” Perkins dropped a bomb.

“Your….Your what?” Song jumped off the bed.

“You heard me.” He slides his phone into his pocket. “Catch you around.”

Song threw herself off the bed and grabbed his waist bringing them both to the ground. Perkins twists to face her and took a hold of her hands. “Ggggirlll.” He said in a wicked voice and pulled her to her feet.

Startling her by pushing her up against the wall he looked deep in her eyes.

“Listen to me girlie. In France I wanted your sister not you, but she refused me so you did in a pinch. Cassidy has been my girlfriend since before France and that is the way it is going to stay. Do you hear me!”

“But what about after France?” Song was a afraid to ask, but she forced herself.
“Hhahahah…well you turned out to be a great kisser and I was hoping to get laid.”

Pushing him away from her she stated screaming at him. “Get out. Get out of my house and stay away from me and my sister. Rue was right you are a disgusting pig.”

Perkins let out a little chuckle. “Whatever babe, I’m out of here.” He left that day never to return to the Lemi household.
~~

Rue’s relationship with Peeta was changing as well. They had, had such a great time in France, but when they got back they found it hard to find things to talk about. Rue still loved being kissed by him, but she wasn’t as comfortable with him as she had once been and she wasn’t sure what was going on.

Everyone in the Lemi household loved Peeta and thought that Rue found a good match in him, and that made everything she felt inside ten times worse.

The two were invited to a pool party and the whole time Peeta followed Rue around like a lost puppy. She encouraged him to go and hang out with his friends, which he hadn’t done since they got back, and just have fun, but he refused and just kept company with her.

When Rue thought she was about to scream she moved away from the group of youths trying to find some peace and get her thoughts together.

“What’s wrong babe?” Peeta came up behind Rue and put his loving arms around her.

She looked up into his kind eyes. “I don’t know. I guess I’m not feeling well.”
“Do you want to go?”

“Yeah I think that it is a good idea.”

They said good-bye to their friends, changed and Peeta walked her home giving her a soft kiss on her doorstep.

A week later he took her to the local teen hangout for a date. They had a great time playing skeet ball and pool, but when night began Peeta began feeling amorous. He pulled her over to the couch for a teenage make out session, but when his lips found her Rue felt nothing.

She kissed his forehead and pulled away from it. Tears instantly begin to flow down her face. “I can’t do this.”

“Do what?” Peeta’s voice was worried and scared.

“Us. Peeta I can’t pretend there is anything between us anymore. I think France was our romance.”

“What are you talking about?” Peeta’s voice raises a few octaves and they are asked to leave.

Once outside their first fight emitted. Peeta did a lot of yelling and begging and Rue did a lot of listening and crying and in the end Rue left Peeta standing outside the hang out and she walked home.

After Rue walked away from the heartbroken Peeta he aged himself up and left Sunset Valley. The only thing he left behind was a text message to Rue that said: “Rue if you ever cared about me at all please don’t tell my mom what happened between us. I have left Sunset Valley for good and I don’t want anyone to follow. Peeta.”

The next day Ms. Young called Rue in a panic looking for Peeta. Rue had cared for Peeta and she did as she was asked and lied. She told Ms. Young that she didn’t know where he was and last she saw him was outside the hang up after their date. Ms. Young began frantically calling all of his friends after that.
A few days passed and Rue’s heart was breaking. It was breaking for having to lie to Ms. Young, it was breaking for having to hurt Peeta and most of all it was breaking because now that he was gone she missed him like crazy. She was beginning to doubt her decision to break up with him.

Rue found herself at the park seeking solitude when Song found her. “There, there, little sister. It will be okay.” She Hugged her sister tightly. “You can’t beat yourself up because you wanted to be happy.”

“That’s it Song I don’t know if I made the right choice. Now that he is gone my heart aches for him and I miss him.” Rue admitted out loud for the first time.
Song spun her around and wiped the tears from her face. “Rue, whatever is going to happen will happen. You can’t stop life from happening nor can you stop making choices. Some of those choices are going to be good and some will be back. Some you will learn from and others will just make you happy. If you and Peeta are meant to be then the two of your will find each other again. For now Rue Turner Lemi you need to dry those tears and move on with your life.”

The girls spent the rest of the day at the lake.

“Song we are about to age up soon and we don’t have boyfriends or being life plans.” Rue pointed out.

“That is true dear sister, but we will be fine. We finally have each other, we have a wonderful mom who loves us. We have several brothers and sisters who will always be there for us and a Step-Father that has loved us as if we were his own since the day we were born. On top of all this our father is Dawn Turner’s cousin. I think that will all that support behind us we will be fine.” The always optimistic Song pointed out.

That night when they walked through the door Ashby noticed that Rue’s eyes were red and they were glossed over with fresh tears.

“Come here baby.” Ashby pats that couch next to her. “Song run upstairs and check on the twins for me, will you?”

Song went up stairs and Rue sat next to her mother.

“What happened Baby Girl?” and took her daughters hand.

Rue told the whole story to her mother.

As fresh tears stain Rue’s face again Ashby pulls her into her arms, and much like when she was a little girl and fretting over Song she comforted her. She kissed the top of her head and said, “Honey, heartache is part of life. It is part of what makes a person well round. Learn from it, nurture it, but don’t dwell on it.”

“Oh mom.” Rue buried her face in Ashby’s protective hold.
~~

At the time she had the bonding moment with Rue Ashby was well on her way to bring babies 41 and 42 into the world. The Father… you remember this guy, right? Caribbean Aquamarine.

The Lemi’s welcomed Leven Aquamarine Lemi.

And Hooper Aquamarine Lemi.
~~
Another Lemi birthday rolled around.

Rue and Song Turner Lemi. Look at these stunning girls. They grew up so well and with their own styles and personalities, but most of they have finally become each other’s best friend.

They said good-bye to their mom and the rest of the family and set off into Sunset Valley to find their way in life.

O’Deen from needy baby and young man to a handsome teenager.

And the Eggplant twins, Dutton and Orchid. Aren’t they too cute for words?

Thank you as always for reading. I want to mention that I know Christy Quinn has taken a different direction with her blog/story, but I just couldn’t take her out of my game. She is one of Ashby’s bff’s so stay tuned to see differences between her blog and mine. Also I am not sure the relationship status of James in her game, but mine put him and Simi together and I thought it was cute so I wanted to keep it that way in mine.
Please comment I love to hear what you think. You can leave me a message here or on my facebook page under Ashby Lemi.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 37and 38

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABIES 37 and 38

****Warning****

There is a little bit of “adult” content in this post. I believe it is done tastefully but I wanted to let your readers know before you read.

 

After the holiday season things did not settle down for the Lemi’s.  Just the opposite happened.  Things began to change and not necessarily for the best.

Asher and Jackrabbit went for an early morning ride every day, but two weeks after New Year’s Asher went to get the horse from his stall to find him lethargic and very sick.  The Vet came and took a look at him and Asher was told that his pal didn’t have much longer to live.  Asher was beside himself wondering if it was something he did wrong in the care of the horse, but the Vet assured him that it was nothing he did wrong.  Sometimes animals get sick and all we can do is let them go back to their maker.  Asher spent night and day with Jackrabbit and after two days he passed and Asher was left with a huge hole in his heart.

The day after Rian, Riker and Rollin moved out Mask began disappearing and daily Riker would have to bring him home explaining the cat came looking for him.  After about a week Ashby couldn’t deny the bond the two had and she allowed Riker to keep the stray cat he found so long ago.  Riker and Mask are so much happier being together, but the Lemi household was left with this huge emptiness that no one talked about.

 

The adults threw themselves into the raising of the children in the household, but nothing they did could fill the void they didn’t know existed between animal and sim.  It never occurred to either of them that they could adopt a new pet.  Pet’s in the Sim3 world was so new, so they just pushed away the longing and moved forward with life.

Go Go Cindi-Lou.

 The Christmas triplets were fast learners and before Ashby and Asher knew it the triplets had learned all their skills.

 

A family picnic to the park was planned before it was time to age up the triplets.  They had a grand time playing, talking and enjoying family time.

 

“Today you will age up into a fine young man.  You will work hard and become a man like your step-dad Asher.”  Ashby cooed to Scrooge as she waited for the guests to show up for the triplet’s birthday.

The party was a success and the triplets aged up so beautifully.

Scrooge got his mother’s eyes and his father’s hair coloring and skin tone.  He loves his sister’s, but can’t help rolling his eyes in irritation every time Ashby makes him post for pictures with them.  He can be downloaded here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5110775

Cindi-Lou has her grandma’s hair coloring and she is too cute for words.  She can be downloaded here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5110770

Marlie, gosh what a child, she is stunning but has a little bit of a rowdy streak.  She is going to be a handful for Ashby and Asher.  She can be downloaded here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5110776

One night Ashby and Asher got a call from their son Keskey asking for them to come over.  Ashby had other plans already so Asher set out to see his son.  They hadn’t seen much of Keskey because he was out trying to make his mark on Sunset Valley as a firefighter.  It took up a lot of his time.

“I didn’t you know had a dog son.”  Asher greeted the cute female dog.

“That is part of the reason I invited you over dad.  I have a gift for you.”  Keskey lead Asher to the living room.

“A gift for me?”

When they entered into the living room Asher saw three cute puppies and a big smile on Keskey’s face.

“My dog had puppies’ dad and I know you miss Jackrabbit.  I know a dog will not replace a horse, but I want you to have one of these puppies.”

“I can’t take one of these cute pup’s.”  Asher said as he leaned down to scratch a cute little female on her head.  The puppy wagged her tail and rubbed against Asher leg.

Asher and Keskey had a great time catching up and when Asher left……

 

He left with little Miss. Sassy would not leave his side the whole time he was at Keskey’s house.

Sassy was a great addition to the Lemi family and everyone loved her.  She had a sweet disposition and Ashby was so thankful to her son Keskey.

And yes Ashby has gone back to her Original hair color.

 

Ashby and Asher got an offer from the city to house two foreign exchange students.  Ashby thought that taking in someone from another country would be beneficial to the children. It would give them an opportunity to learn about other people and their cultures and lives.  Asher couldn’t have agreed more and Fawna (left) and Flora (right) Channing came to stay with the Lemi’s for their senior year of high school.

 

However, no one predicted a love connection.  Ever since Woody had turned into a teenager he started wearing black and withdrawing from his family and steered clear of making friends.   He tried to play up the “Goth” image in hopes that people would just leave him a long.

Ashby thought it was a phase, but what was really going on was much deeper.  Woody Lemi hated being a 100 baby challenge child.  He hated that everyone in Sunset Valley knew who his mom was, what she was doing and who he was without an introduction.  He knew that he was lucky in the fact that his parents were at least married when many of his siblings and other challenge kids don’t even know their fathers, but he hated his mother’s choice in life.  Another thing that annoyed him was the fact that some many people knew more about his siblings then he did, and he refused to read this blog to find out more.  He just hated the life.

 

When Fawna and Flora moved it that all changed.  He really liked both sisters, and loved that they didn’t know anything about him, and enjoyed spending time with them, but instantly a connection was formed between him and Fawna.  Soon they began to talk more one on one and in depth about themselves, and when he moved in for their first kiss he was amazed that she didn’t pull back or laugh at him like he thought she would.

 

Then it was prom time and without a need to even ask the two planned on going.  They had become inseparable, but every day Woody questioned how Fawna felt about him.  Sure they kissed and talked and shared intimate details about one another, no words of love had been uttered and what if this is how friends acted back in her country?

At prom Flora told them that she was going to go and spend the night at her best friend’s house and when they got home the house was empty.  There was a note from Ashby told him that she and Asher went out for the night and would stay in a motel and the triplets were at Aunt Violet and Uncle A.J.’s house. This was the first time that the two of them had been alone together in the house.

Woody headed to his room to change out of his tux and was surprised when he turned around, to throw his shirt in the laundry, to see Fawna standing in the doorway.  He watched her close the door and turn back to him as she unzipped her dress.  She let it slip to the floor as she planted her lips firmly against his and as she guided him to his bed he knew they were about to embark to a place that neither of them could return from.

 

Afterwards they lay there together and he protectively held her.  He knew he was in love and nothing could come between that love.  He was trying to figure out how to tell her when her velvet accent rose from the bed, “I love you.”  He had to choke back tears as he leaned over, kissed her on her temple and whispered into her ear, “I love you too.”

Scrooge took up animal collecting.  He brought home a snake and called him Dante, a turtle he called Precious, and a gecko that he called Pete.  He was very responsible in cleaning and feeding these little creates, but Ashby wasn’t thrilled Precious became a little escape artist.  They spent more time looking for her then actually caring for her.

As mentioned before Marlie was a little trouble maker, but she had taken a real shine to Sassy and Ashby encouraged her to play with the dog whenever she could.  She hoped that Sassy could be a distraction for Marlie’s meddling ways, but only time will tell if this “theory” is working.

 

It was time for Woody’s birthday and his entrance into Young Adulthood.  Fawna and Flora aged up the same time.  Fawna was scheduled to head back to her county a week later, but Flora had already applied for a work visa right after they moved and it was granted so she moved to start her adult life in Sunset Valley.

 

Oh what a handsome young man he became.  He sure was a product of Ashby and Asher Lemi with their steel grey eyes and flawless facial structure.  He was sure to make his parents proud.  He stopped wearing all black but he couldn’t get rid of wearing hats.  He requested to say in the house for a few more days before moving out and Ashby agreed.  She felt that he had big plans and she didn’t want to miss a step of it.

 

Bay too sensed a change coming as well and she wasn’t looking forward to her big brother moving out.  The two of them had gotten real close and she was afraid that he would leave and forget all about him.  She began diving into the chemistry set in hopes it would keep her distracted from the thought of her brother moving out.

 

The day after they aged up Woody found Fawna in the back yard longingly looking into the distance.  He presented her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and saw the tears in her eyes over the gift.

“What’s wrong babe?  Are you already thinking about the trip home?”  He didn’t want to go back to her country.

“Yes, but the thought of how I don’t want to leave you more than home itself.”  Was her reply and this gave his heart hope.

 

He grabbed her hand and pulled her close to him.  This startled her and she dropped her beautiful flowers.  “What if I could keep you here with me?  Would you stay?”  He breathed nervously into her ear.  She pushed him arms length away and just looked at him and that is when he dropped to one knee.

 

“What are you doing?”  She exclaimed and tried to pull him back up.

He remained firmly on the ground and removed a box from his pocket.  “Fawna Renee Channing will you stay with me forever in Sunset Valley and be my wife?”

The ring was small, but she didn’t care.  She loved Woody with all her heart and was over the moon that he felt the same way.  Without a thought to it she accepted and leapt into his arms crying and laughing at the same time.  She kissed him all over his face and neck and they fell to the ground in a heap of happiness.

 

Ashby was so impressed with the impact that Fawna had on Woody and how much the two of them loved each other.  Everyone knew they had a short time to plan a wedding in order to keep her in Sunset Valley, but Ashby would not allow them to get married without a Bachelor/Bachelorette party.

She sent Asher and the “guy” away from the house for Woody’s party and she threw Fawna a grand party where Fawna got to meet several of Woody’s sisters.

The party was a grand success and Fawna felt so lucky that she was marrying into such a great family.

The couple was so thankful to their family for being so supportive but they wanted to get married in private.  The night following the party they went down to the beach, were Fawna set up a little something for them, and said their vows before their maker.

 

 

And then it was time for Ashby to get her good-bye pictures and Woody and Fawna moved out.

With Woody and Fawna gone and the triplets in school, and waiting for the arrival of the next dad, Ashby had a lot of time to fill so she took up virtual reality.  The experiences were tripping and fun but she would much rather be spending her time with her children.

Then it was time to embark on another birthday.  It was time for Bay to become a teenager.  Bay was thrilled to see both her dad and Grandma Christy came to the party (for those of you who read Christy Quinn’s blog…let’s say this party was before her accident).

Stunning…Bay I think you got the perfect mix of James and Ashby.  ***Note*** she has deep brown eyes that are beautiful.  She can be downloaded here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5091562

I bet you are all wondering who the next father of the challenge is.  Let me introduce you all to Don Turner.  He is cousins with famous challenge mom Dawn Turner.   Asher met him at A.J.’s Bachelor party and the two had kept in contact and when Don mentioned that he might want to be in a challenge to try and understand his cousin a little better Asher brought this to Ashby.  She contacted Don and they decided that it would be a good match.  He was more willing with her due to she does invetro instead of the “old fashioned” way.

He is pretty excited to be a dad now.

Another party?  Yes it is this time it isn’t for a birthday day.  It’s a baby shower for Fawna.  She and Woody are expecting.  Bay, who was now okay with her brother’s new life, decided to throw her sister-in-law and baby shower, but one where men could come as well.  Fawna’s mother even made a trip to Sunset Valley (she is the woman in the sweat suit) to see her daughters and join in on the festivities.

Welcome Razz Lemi to the Lemi clan.  Fawna had a beautiful baby boy who got her hair coloring and features and Woody’s steel grey eyes.

Okay really Lemi family??  Ashby has had 36 children and you are going to still freak out.  Haha I love you all so much.

Welcome Song Turner Lemi to the clan.  She appears to have gotten mostly Ashby’s look.  She got her hair color and her eyes for sure, but time will tell if she will take on the Turner genes or the Lemi genes.  She can be downloaded here:  http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5091558

 

Rue Turner Lemi how cute does she look with the Turner genes, but Ashby’s eye coloring.  She can be downloaded here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5091560

Ashby Lemi – Baby 32

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 32

Life at the Lemi’s picked up with a teen, two children and three toddlers.  Ashby and Asher found that all of their free moment’s were taken up by potty training, teaching a toddler to walk or talk, helping children with homework and talking their teen though trivial teen drama’s.

 Even though it was work Ashby enjoyed every minute of it.  She couldn’t help but laugh at the silly things her kids said when teaching them to talk.

“Book…say book.”

“Why?”

“No not why, book.”

“Why?”

“You are just the cutest thing in my life.”  She would reply and scoop him into her arms.

She would tickle him until they were both breathless from the laughter.

Rollin, Riker and Rian are they the sweetest little angles ever?  Once they learned how to walk it was hard to keep them out of trouble.

Carter and Capri had been enrolled in ballet since they were able to walk and the two loved spending time after homework out in the backyard practicing their dancing.  They had a big recital coming up and Capri had gotten the lead role.  Carter was a bit jealous, but in all honesty she wasn’t as coordinated as her sister.

Soon it was time for Keskey to age into a Young Adult.  He asked Asher and Ashby if he could have his party at the beach.  After some deliberation about it, it was decided that his party would be held there.  Ashby called and made a reservation and the party planning began.

Everyone had a grand time.  The girls; Carter, Capri and Rian, especially loved it.  When it was time for Keskey to blow out the candles Ashby found it hard pressed to get them off the playground equipment.  She made a mental note that she needed to bring them to the beach more often.

Man you would never guess she was the mother of 31 children (30 of them she gave birth to).

Keskey made a wish that he told no one about and blew out his candles.

You would think that by the time a sim aged into a Young Adult they would be use to the age sparkles, but they always made Keskey nervous.  Once they completely took him over he was satisfied with the outcome.

“Real Men wear pink” was his motto.   He turned into such a handsome young man, and Ashby knew that he was going to have to fight off the girls left and right.

Two weeks later Keskey was graduating and as they exited city hall Aunt Vi snapped this family photo.  They went back to the house for yet another party this time no one was aging up.  This time it was celebration of Keskey graduating.

 

 In true Ashby form she made sure someone was close by with a camera to take some candid shots of her, Asher and their son Keskey.

 Then with a loving hug to his parents and a promise to visit often Keskey was out the door.  He was heading off to college and was leaving before summer break because he wanted to get settled and he had a summer job lined up.

Little Capri was very attached to her big brother and when he left the house she worked herself up to the point of being sick.  Ashby put her to bed early and read her a story.  She reassured her over and over that Keskey would be back and that he had promised that he would make it to her dance recital.  Finally she drifted to sleep, but she wasn’t a 100% convinced that Keskey would keep his promise.

The recital was near the end of the summer and true to his word Keskey was in the front row with his camera taking pictures of his baby sisters.  Capri was the happiest little fairy princess that one could have hoped for.

Rollin was very attached to his mommy and loved her to read to him.  She would bring him up in the little reading room their aunt Vi and Uncle A.J. made and they would read for hours.  He was mesmerized by her voice and especially loved it when she would make little actions with her hands in a small attempt to act out the story for him.

The other two didn’t really like books and reading as much as Rollin, they were more interested in running around getting into the bigger kids stuff.  Which Carter especially hated.

School was getting ready to start soon and Carter wasn’t sure how she felt about that.  She hadn’t made any friends yet and she hated getting stared at for being a challenge kid.  She would sit in her room for hours thinking about how she could make her school days better.  When she remembered that the triplets were going to be school age before the start of school made her feel a little better.  Knowing that there were going to five Lemi’s in the same school really eased her mind.

Then it was birthday time again.  This time they would throw the party at the park, what better place to have a child’s birthday then at the park?

 Rian was up first.  What a beauty she became with her mother’s hair, her grandma’s skin tone and a beautiful combination of her mom’s steel eyes and her grandma’s blue eyes.  Ashby styled her hair with a cute flower headband.

 

Riker was next, and what a surprise.  He turned out to be quite wholesome and was very eager to begin school.  He had a nice combination of genetics from both Ashby and Terrance and was quite handsome on a geeky sort of way.

 

Last by not least was Rollin.  What a cute young man.  He was a skater type and liked baggy jeans, colored t-shirts, cool hats and of course skate board.  He was so stoked that he got one for his birthday.  He certainly had a lot of his father’s looks and Ashby heart filled with pride as she looked upon her three beautiful children.

 They had to move the party back to the house when the rain started, but Ashby didn’t let that stop her from getting some pictures.

Soon it was time to decide on a father for baby 32.

One day, after several days of going through “applicants”, Asher grabbed Ashby in the kitchen and pulled her close.  “Baby after all the hard work we have been doing we need some us time.  I am calling dibs on baby number 32.”  With that he nuzzled his scruffy chin against Ashby neck, something he knew she loved.

She giggled as she leaned closer.  “You can have dibs on whatever baby you want my love.”

In her early stages of pregnancy there was a huge mishap, but lucky there was no damage to the baby.  Riker was a scientist at heart and he would spend many hours at the chemistry set.  He made a concoction and asked Ashby to try it.  This elixir turned her into a ghost for a few hours.  Asher quickly took her to the doctor after it wore off and she was assured there was nothing wrong with the baby.

Ashby was loving that baby 32 was her husband’s.  Removing the extra man factor made things so much easier and allowed them to spend extra time together.  They loved hanging out on the swing set in their backyard.

“So do you have a boys’ name picked out?”  She asked him in a playful way.  Ever since they found out the gender of their young one she would tease him about this.

“You are better at picking names out then me.  Do you have one?”

“I do.  I was thinking a name sake for another challenge mom.”  She told him her idea and he was in agreement.

“I am Rollin the great and you will bow to me!”

“I am Prince Riker and this is Princess Rian.  We will rule you with a kind hand and a loving heart.”

While the kids were downstairs playing Ashby woke up from her nap because the baby was really moving.  Asher tried to calm him down by rubbing her stomach, but all the did was help her go into labor.

Welcome to the world Woody Lemi.  He is named after fellow challenge mom Addy McKnight.  Her maiden name is Woodrow and that is where his name is taken from.

They barely got Woody home when it was time to throw another birthday party.  This time it was a good old fashioned pool party.

 

First to age was Carter.  What a cute, hip, cutie she turned out to be.  She looked so much like Ashby, she could have almost been her carbon copy.

 

Then Capri’s turn, and what a stunning young woman she was.  With Grandpa Lawrence’s hair color she was a looker.
