Ashby Lemi – Babies 26, 27 and 28 Part 2

After Holden and his family left time just moved along line normal, kids grew and moved on and life was good.

            I had to leave for my home country for a while on a family emergency, so I am unable to get the pictures during that time. 

**Author’s note: I lost my game again so I was unable to get some of the pictures I normally would have had L **

            Ashby told me that Addison and Taloria aged into beautiful teens and moved to France. Taloria is going to design clothes for a company out there and Addison is going to take in the scenery for her new book.

            Life was going along greatly, but then Lockland turned into a teen and found out that Asher wasn’t his dad. After he learned this his behavior started to be destructive and rebellious. He wouldn’t listen to either Ashby or Asher, and when he was at his most vulnerable Darko entered the picture. He went behind Ashby’s back and would meet Lockland outside of the school and tell him about his vampire heritage and how much he was sorry that he was forced out of his life as a baby, toddler and child. 

            Lockland had been so hurt at finding out that Asher wasn’t his dad and Taloria and Addison were only his half sisters that he bought into all of Darko’s lies and soon he ran away from the Lemi household forever and moved in with his dad. This devastated Ashby and Asher, but as a unit they are strong and they got each other through it.

            This event caused Asher to push Ashby even harder to continue her challenge and to get cured of her vampirism. She finally consented to being cured, but wouldn’t budge on continuing her challenge.

            With Ashby being so stubborn the two learned pretty quickly that the house they were living in was too small for just the two of them so they moved from their beach house property to a lot nearby. The bought a quaint little two bedroom cottage and for a while they were content. 

            In hopes that Ashby would one day continue her challenge Asher made her promise not to get a job so it wasn’t long before she felt the silence of the house when he was at work, and when she finally came to him with the suggestion of adopting a child he was all for it. He too missed kids around the house and he hope that it could be an opening to get Ashby to continue with her challenge.

            Ashby called the adoption agency and set up an appointment. While Asher was filling out paperwork Ashby met and spend the afternoon with a little boy name Keskey.   She fell in love immediately and wanted him to be the one she too home. The agency told her that wasn’t possible, but Ashby would not take no for an answer. A few weeks later Keskey came home to the Lemi house.


            Welcome home Keskey Lemi.





            Keskey was a cute and imaginative young boy. As soon as the Lemi’s brought him home he began to flourish and he loved the old costume chest the other Lemi kids left behind. 

            He wanted to be prince and rule over the whole house, he wanted to be a astronaut and explore the skies. 


            He wanted to be a submarine captain and hunt down Moby Dick.


            He wanted to be a general to lead the Sims into battle and leave it in peace.



            He wanted to be a great adventurer and travel the globe and tell every one of those adventures.



            Keskey kept Ashby and Asher on their toes, but the couple knew that to make a marriage work they had to find time for each other as well. The two would spend time together at the park, or go to a movie or just for a stroll. There was never any doubt that the two were in love.



            With all the dreams Keskey had Ashby and Asher wanted to help him make them all come true, but how? They started by getting him enrolled in after school scouting on M, T and Thursdays. He had a great time and learned many things such as saluting and tying knots.


            Time does what time does and it moved along. Then Asher got a wild idea to take his small family on a vacation. As he logged onto the computer he found a file that he had never looked at before. Being a curious sim he doubled clicked on it and the video that Ashby’s first husband and Asher’s dear friend Connery made for her. (for those that don’t remember the video or is new to the blog you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plqFb2Aiwy4 )

            It moved him and brought tears to his eyes. He knew he could not allow Ashby to give up her challenge. It meant the world to her and he was determined to make her remember that.


            When Asbhy got home from helping out at Keskey’s school Asher poured them both a cup of hot coffee and they sat down to talk. He told her everything he was feeling from watching Connery’s video to wanting more kids around the house to him wanting her to continue her challenge.

            She told him that she did want to continue her challenge, but she couldn’t bear to be with any other man. 

            Then Asher surprised her……

            “I have a plan about that. We are going to continue your challenge as a sold couple but we Lemi’s are going to break some more rules. I propose that we talk to Vi and A.J., and by the way they will be here in an hour, about IVF. If we incorporate that, having children of our own and adopting we should get through the next 74 children with no problem.” Asher gave her a big smile.

            “You called Vi and A.J., and don’t you mean 75 children?” Ashby questioned.        

            He winked at her and said, “We are going to count Keskey as baby 26 and move forward. So what do you say? Are you back on board with this challenge.” 

            “What will the other challenge mom’s think of me including adoption and kids of our own?” Ashby was worried about the rules she has already broken and the rules they were thinking of breaking.

            “Babe, it really doesn’t matter. Those women are your friends and they will love you no matter what. You need to do what you need to do for your challenge and with the issues you have had and us getting married before you ending the challenge I think this the best way.”

            After more talking Ashby finally agreed.


            Their visit with Violet and A.J. was very productive. Violet gave her the number for the IVF doctor she used and told her what to except and how it worked. While the girls chatted about that A.J. and Asher came up with a plan for a new house for Asher and Ashby.   You see AandV design had agreed to build them a new home. Ashby once again began to get excited about her challenge.


            A few weeks after it was decided that Ashby would start her challenge again an old friend from Twinbrook showed up on their door step with a familiar request.


            “Basil Greensnip, what brings you to Sunset Valley?” Ashby hugs her old friend and is glad to see him.

            Basil, as animated as ever, begins to explain how crazy Twinbrook is without her and that he missed their friendship. She reassured him that she missed him too, then he came out with the real reason he was in Sunset Valley.

            “Ashby, as you know I moved to Twinbrook to take part in your cousin, Harmony’s, 100 baby challenge, but she disappeared and then you and I became real good friends. We talked about me partaking in yours but the time was never right. I read Mother’s Monthly and it says you are thinking about not continuing your challenge and I am here to implore you not to give up on it and let me be the next dad.” He said this all in one breath and took a sigh of relief when he was done.

            “Well Basil if you have read that you know that I am married to Asher now…”

            He cuts her off, “Yes I do and I think that is wonderful. I was there when Connery passed I remember your heartache, but….”

            It was her turn to cut him off. “I am going to continue my challenge just not in the traditional way. Basil, if you are willing to go through IVF then I would love for you to be the dad to baby 27.” 

            He grabbed her hand and smiled broadly. “Thank you Ashby thank you.”


            The night after Ashby went through her first IVF treatment she tucked Keskey into bed, kissed his forehead and told him he may have a new brother or sister soon.


            When the first signs of pregnancy showed on Ashby’s body she couldn’t help but smile.

            And soon the Lemi household was blessed with two bouncing baby girls.

            Carter Greensnip Lemi (named after fellow challenge mom Carter Mason). Carter rolled the Insane and Virtuoso traits.

            And Capri Greensnip Lemi, she rolled the Absent Minded and Neurotic traits.

Ashby Lemi – Babies 26,27 and 28 part 1


BABY 26. 27 and 28

**Author’s note: this post is not written in the correct tense…most of it is past tense and I am sorry for that. I should have gone back and corrected it, but I just wanted to finally get it out. I apologize for the mess and hope you still enjoy.***

            Ashby went to take Lockland up to his crib, when Taloria stopped her.  

            “Mom, what is that?” She asked in her most quizzical voice.

            “This is your new brother, Lockland.” Ashby was very tired after giving birth, but she always made time for her children.

            “He doesn’t look like daddy.” Taloria cocked her head to the right and look upon the small babe before her.

            Ashby sighed. How could she explain the situation to the young girl? She just smiled at the girl, reached up and bushed her thumb across her daughters chin in a loving manor and said, “Sweetie, Lockland is tired. I need to take him to bed.” 

            Taloria as okay with that and went to find Addison to play before it was their time to go to bed.


            Wren got asked out for her very first date by a guy from another school, they met at the park, but she was heartbroken when he didn’t show up. She had saved her allowance for a new dress and hair do, and she felt that it was for nothing. Ashby tried to explain to her that these things happened and that it was him and not her, but she would not believe her. We think this is the even that triggered Wren to become a difficult teen. 


            One sunny afternoon Ashby was sitting under the canopy of her newly redecorated deck, being a vampire didn’t allow her to be outside for very long in the sun and she missed out on what her kids were doing so Asher and A.J. built her the deck, when Addison came around the side of the house yelling at her.

            “Mommy, Mommy, look!” She ran up to Ashby and kept waiving a magazine at her. 

            She was so excited that it took Ashby several minutes to get the young girl to settle down enough to hand her what she had been waiving in her face. Ashby was stunned to learn that she had been featured in Challenge Mother’s Monthly. She had been interviewed when she first moved to Sunset Valley, but she never expected to be featured. This was a spectacular even for the Lemi household and it was all the kids talked about for weeks. Addison even took the magazine to school for show and tell. 

***Author’s note…I would like to thank Dawn Turner for making this for me. This is truly special! ***




            Holden has always looked up to his big sister Wren, and seeing her pull pranks and putting hair dye in her shower when he was a child gave him the prank bug. From ding dong ditch to setting frogs loose into the school he spent his free time pulling pranks.


            Asher and Ashby finally got frustrated with all the trouble he was getting into and they enrolled him some afterschool activities. There he and his childhood friend Bella Bachelor became close. After school they were together in their activities and on the weekends they were together doing homework or just spending time around town. 

            They were very cute together.


            The vampire in Ashby started to take over. She was out for one of her late night strolls when the urge to hunt hit her. This time her target was none other than her best friend Violet Newbie. 

            Luckily Ashby’s Sim side was able to get the Vampire side under control and she fed on someone else. 

            She didn’t like what she was becoming but she still felt it was a worthy punishment for letting down her girls.


            Even though Lockland wasn’t his biological child Asher didn’t love him any less. He spent a lot of time with the babe and took him outdoors during the day when Ashby wasn’t able to. He still hated Darko for the why he treated his wife, but he couldn’t hate the outcome.

            The two spent oodles of time together and Lockland had no clue that Asher wasn’t his daddy.


            While Ashby encourages Holden improve on his schooling and skills Wren devises a devious plan.


            And that night as Holden got ready for bed he was the victim of that devious plan when the sink went haywire and soaked him from head to toe, the pranks in the Lemi household was getting out of control. Would this behavior catch on with Addison, Taloria and Lockland?


Where are you going my little one

Little one

Where are you going my baby my own

Turn around and your 2, turn around and your 4

Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.

Turn around Turn around

Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.

            Ashby sang to her little boy. She knew it was only a matter of time before it was time to age Lockland into a tot. 

***Author’s note: this song is something my mom sang to my brother and I (mine was young lady) when we were growing up***


            Holden and Bella continued to spend a lot of time together. They two were inseparable and Ashby and Asher thought that she was a good influence on him for his pranks and misbehaving had subsided. 


            It was time to age Lockland up and he inherited his mom’s hair coloring and his dads red eyes. He was a very handsome toddler and was loved by the whole Lemi household.


            In one of his last rebellious acts Holden added blue and green to his hair. Actually I think he looks pretty handsome so his act backfired on him.




            “I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna to get you.” Asher teases Lockland as he tickles him with the “claw”.

            With Ashby still a vampire and not allowed in the sun much Asher spends even more time with Lockland making sure that he got out side for fun and fresh air time. Ashby felt so left out, but she was so glad to have a man like Asher as her husband. 



            Who are these fine men? Oh yes they are the Lemi twins, A.J. on the right and Asher on the left. Violet, A.J., Ashby and Asher get together quite often. Ashby is grateful that she moved to Sunset Valley where she had some many people that loved her. After her parents died she felt quite alone in Twinbrook.


            Addison is the dreamer of the family. She would go to bed early and just sit in her bed thinking of new and interesting stories. 




            Then she would talk Taloria into dressing up with her and acting out the story. 

            Once upon a time there lived two princesses. The land had come upon hard times when pink dragon (dinosaur costume was all they had) threatened the livelihood. He would swoop down on unsuspecting people on his flying contraption and scare them half to death. The people of the land wanted the princess to save and protect the, but the two young girls didn’t know what to do. One day a strangely dressed stranger came to the princesses. He told them that he was from the future and that he could help them with their problem. The girls took him up on his offer and the man in the white suit disappeared into the fog and neither he nor the pink dragon was heard from ever again.

            She has such an imagination and the Lemi’s think that someday she will grow up to be a write or something creative like that.




            Being a child of two vampires tends to show itself in the most inopportune times. Lockland is both a sweet and beautiful boy with a nasty temper and weird behaviors, like trying to suck the blood out of his teddy bear. 

            Tisk Tisk *Ashby* was this a good idea?



            Time seems to flies when you’re having fun the old saying goes, and it was soon time for Lockland to be a child. What a handsome boy. He wears these goggles because he says he wants to be a super hero and save mommies like Ashby from mean doers, but no one has seen a super hero with a temper like his.


            See what I mean?




            A few days after Lockland aged up it was time for Wren to be a Young Adult. The Lemi’s had a family party (and me) and after Wren aged up and designed herself a new dress Ashby sat the kids down and told him a scary story. 

            Perhaps that imagination Addison has comes from her mommy.



            Ashby decided that a picture with the kids before they leave is going to be a new tradition with the Lemi family. Asher was a bit excited about the prospect of Wren graduation and couldn’t keep himself from cheering. Perhaps he will be a little more calmed down when it is Holden’s turn.


            What a breathtaking young woman she turned out to be.

The next morning the whole family dressed up in their Sunday best and headed to the court house where Wren graduated. After the ceremony she hugged her parents and siblings and got on a bus and headed to her new life. She was heading back to the land where her biological parents grew up in hopes she can find out more about her and Holden’s parents and life before the Lemi household.



            What is happening at the Lemi household? Boys driving on the couch and a princess and a dinosaur playing video games? 




            Ah young love. Do you think that Bella will become Mrs. Starr Bright or do you think she will leave Holden and fulfill her destiny of being with the Goth boy?





            It was time for the twins to age into teens. Ashby got them together for a cute childhood photo, don’t they look cute? Taloria with her fire red hair like her mom’s and Addison with darker red hair with blonde highlights like her dad’s, these two girls are just precious. 

            Aging didn’t change the views of the girls at all. Taloria still wanted to be a fashion designer when she grew up and Addison wanted to be a well renowned author.    I sure hope these two make their dreams come true.




            Time passed for the Lemi’s and soon it was time for Holden to age into a young adult. To Ashby’s surprise Bella came to her and asked they could throw a double party for she too wanted to age up. She couldn’t bear not being with him. Ashby agreed and the Bachelor/Lemi families held a big coming to age party.

            Holden grew into a handsome young adult. He decided to keep his rebellious hair-do and it looks great on him. 

            Bella has very long features, and pretty big eyes. I can’t wait to see if these two have kids… I have a feeling if they do they will be pretty cute.



            The two got some “couple’s” pictures as the party went well into the night. The next day the two graduated, but Holden decided to stay at home for just a bit long and Ashby was thrilled.



            Soon the days turned into weeks and finally Holden popped the question to Bella. He asked her to be his one and only and she could say nothing but yes.

            The next step was to send out the invitations to all. 

***Author’s note: I would like to thank Violet Newbie for making this invitation for me. She did a beautiful job. ***


            Holden is Ashby’s 2nd child to get married and since Elvira and Lars eloped Ashby insisted on a big wedding. She would not take no for an answer. All the arrangements were made, the bachelor/bachelorette parties were had and finally the day came. The two would join together.

            Ashby cried as any good mother should and the two had a great day with their family and friends. 

            At the reception the newly married couple made an announcement that they were expecting. Ashby was over the moon with this announcement. This would be her 3rd grandchild (her firsts are Dallas and Tucker Turner read about them in Dawn Turners blog here: http://dawnturnersbabychallenge.blogspot.com/p/chapters.html ). 

            She insisted that Holden and Bella stayed with them until at least the baby was born and the young couple agreed, both of them were very comfortable in the Lemi household.        



            Being stuck indoors gave Bella and Ashby time to get to know one another better. Ashby was enjoying being on the outside of a pregnancy for once. She talked to the baby and she and Bella exercised almost daily. It was a great boding experience for them while the men were at work and the children were at school.


            Soon Bella and Holden came home with a beautiful baby girl named Alyce. The three of them stayed on until Alyce became a toddler and then they moved on to their own home.


            Here is little Alyce as a toddler. Isn’t she cute? She got her daddy’s hair and I am sure her dark eyes are from her mom’s side. Ashby just loved this little girl and it was hard to think that after her party she and her parents would be moving on.



            At Alyce’s party Ashby made sure the family photos were taken. First was Holden with his parents. Asher what is up with you always cheering when your kids are getting ready to leave the house?



            Next is Holden and his new family. I think Alyce looks a lot like her dad. 


            Finally Ashby, Asher and their granddaughter Alyce.



            To Be Continued………


Ashby Lemi – Baby 25




***Author’s note*** this contains some adult content. If you are 15 or younger please make sure it is okay for you to read this. Thank you




                It would soon be time for Wren to age into a teen so she decided to get some good quality time in with her brother. She felt so lucky that Ashby had taken them both in and that they didn’t need to be separated. It was hard enough to lose her parents; she couldn’t bear to think that she could have lost her brother too. 



            “Mom, come and dance my last practice with me. Tomorrow I will be a teen!” Wren hollered at Ashby. 

            Ashby was soaking in the hot tub with Asher, and excused herself by saying, “Sorry honey my baby needs me.” She winked at him and went and had a dance with her child. 


            The next night they had a party for Wren and it seemed like everyone came. Vi, Christy, Derrick, myself, and many others as well. *sorry the pictures of the party were just too dark* Wren had a great time as well as her family and she grew into a fine looking young lady. She thought that her hair was a bit plain so she added some purple highlight and this writer thinks she looks great.



            “Look little brother, it is me Wren your big sister.” Wren tried to encourage Holden to not be scared. She may look different but she was still his big sister and she loved him.

            After hearing her voice Holden knew who she was and just wanted to snuggle with her.


            With Teen hood Wren developed a love for exercise. She even convinced Ashby that working out would make her feel better. Ashby was willing to try anything. She was slipping into a deeper and deeper depression over the loss of her girls. She hated this because she was happy with her current life as well. 


            It wasn’t long after Wren aged up that it was time for Holden to grow into a child. What a handsome boy with his piercing amber eyes and darker complexion.   He is really into logic games such as chess, when Asher gets home from work and before Holden goes to bed, the two of them can be found trying to beat the other in a good healthy game of chess.


Addison Lemi


Taloria Lemi


            It was soon time for the twins Addison and Taloria to age into tots and begin learning their skills. These two girls are just little angels. Addison got her mom’s hair, red with red highlights, and Taloria got her dads, red with blonde highlights. 

            The twins are such silly children they keep the family laughing. Look at Taloria with her tiny finger up her nose. I mean really…….


            Wren wasn’t a genius like her brother, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t smart. She found that she had a love for writing and was determined to have a book published. Between school working, helping around the house and dancing she could be found working on the computer. 


            Ashby and Asher helped the girls with their skills and once they were all mastered it was time to age them up.


            What a fun little girl Addison grew into. She likes working the chemistry set and playing on the playground with her sister. 


            I think Taloria got all her mom from hair, skin, eyes and style. She is so much girl that it makes Addison look like a Tom-boy when she really isn’t. She loves to be surrounded by people and friends and she is thinking of being a fashion designer when she grows up.


            After the girls aged up Ashby tucked them into bed and kissed their sweet foreheads. 

            The next morning things had changed drastically in Sunset Valley, The Sims world was introduced to Generations. This new addition to the Sims world has opened the doors for Sims to do so much more with their lives. The Lemi family was excited to try everything and anything this addition had to offer, but not all of it was good.


            The day after the girls aged up started a long weekend for Memorial Day. Early Saturday morning Ashby and Asher went to the store and bought several new items for the house and their family. 

            The first thing Taloria did was run to the costume chest and dressed up into a pretty purple princess. After putting on the costume her imagination took over and she pretended she was Princess Taloria ruler of the Lemi household, but got pretty frustrated when her siblings and parents wouldn’t listen to her “requests”.



            It appeared that with the new stuff that was introduced new ideas and behaviors started with the Sims around town. 

            Wren got an idea in her head that it would be fun to pull a prank on the inspecting Holden. She fiddled around with the toilet and then went and found her brother. When she did she began talking about running water and different things and soon it was in his head to use the restroom and …. BAM her trick hit him full force in the face. 

            Wren got in trouble for her actions and was even Grounded!! However this didn’t stop her from finding the humor or the fun she had from pranking her brother. I feel that the Lemi children are going to start getting into no good.



            While Addison and Taloria played in the new Tree House……


            And Holden played Green Dinosaur….





            The adults and eldest daughter decided to try out the new water slide. Wren was a pro right off the bat doing tricks and having fun. The athletic Asher also did well, but his wife wasn’t so lucky. At first she was a bit uncoordinated and kept getting water in her face.   Asher couldn’t help by snicker at her bad luck, but it was all in fun. 

            The Lemi family had a blast with their new activities and played well into the night. 



            It was late when the family crawled into bed. Being the only boy in the house Holden begged Asher for a story even though he was very tired. Asher jumps at any opportunity to be with his kids.


            The next day, Sunday, was just as crazy with family time and trying new things. Wren decided to take her hand at the new hopscotch game. She turned out to be pretty good at it and loved playing.


            Taloria broke some dishes and got in trouble. Asher knows that accidents happen but she was trying to juggle them. He had to give her a stern talking to about freedom of expression, but also being respectful to other people’s things.


            Asher had to go into work for a little bit on Sunday and Wren wanted to go hang out with her friends in town, so they killed two birds with one stone, and Asher gave her a driving lesson to meet her friends.



            Memorial Day they did more of the same things played in the water, had a picnic, played on new playground equipment and at the end of the day Asher, Addison and Taloira wound down with a video game.

            Ashby was busy online researching what the school now offered with Generations and she signed Holden up for Scouts, and Addison up for Ballet lessons.



            The next day as Wren was getting ready for school she had a much unexpected surprise. Holden had decided to get back at her for the toilet prank and filled her shower head with hair color.

            Luckily the color was washable, but since she had been running later already she had to go to school with a full head of purple hair. 


            Weeks past and with the building guilt and the stress of life in general Ashby began to feel a bit restless. She and Asher would talk for hours and one night he told her that he would watch the kids and she just needed to go let off some steam. He told her to go and check out the new club in town. 

            Ashby called everyone, Vi was unable to make it due to her upcoming surgery and Christy already had plans. Of course the Della’s were in Bridgeport, and Nessa too had plans. Ashby decided to go anyways.

            She had a great time at the Grind eating bar food and chatting with the people she met until she met HIM, the Vampire Darko Mulberry. She had heard the stories of this Vampire but never thought they or he was real, but this night changed her views and life forever.

            He told her that he was the one who had called asking to be in her challenge and that he really wanted her to reconsider her answer. She politely declined again setting Darko’s anger off. He began to insult her and her family and when he brought up her dead girls her blood began to boil and she began telling him off.


            Darko didn’t like to be talked to in this manor and stuck her in the face. Ashby reached up and rubbed the spot with her knuckles and glared at him. She was not about to make more of a scene then they already had and she turned on her heels and headed out of the establishment.



            Darko wouldn’t let this alone and ran after her. He grabbed her by the shoulder and spun her around. Taking her arm he sank his teeth deep into it as Ashby screamed for her life. 

            When he was done he wiped his mouth and watched as the bats consumed her. Then he left Ashby in a state of confusion.


            Ashby called Asher as she walked home (she was too scared to drive). She told him everything that had happened and he wanted to go after the guy that hurt her, but she told him that all she wanted was to be in his arms when she got home. He agreed to leave it alone for now but when she walked into the house she could not find him anywhere.

            “Asher?” She called with a dry voice. 

            She had reached the top of the stairs when she heard him come in the front door. “Babe?” He called.

            “Up here.” 

            He ran two at a time up the stairs and when he got there he handed her a beautiful bouquet of purple roses. “It isn’t much but I want to try and cheer you up.” 

            “You are the best husband a gal could ask for.” She mustered a smile for him and smelled the sweet fragrance of the flowers. Then she winced in pain as Darko’s bite began to burn.

            Asher snaked his arm around her waist and led her downstairs into the kitchen. He washed out the bit and look at it carefully. He suggested that she go and see the doctor but she waived him off and told him she would be fine. He bandaged her up and they headed off to bed.


            A few days later Ashby woke up with a splitting headache and when she looked in the mirror this is what she saw. She finally understood what Darko had done to her. He hadn’t just drunk her blood he had changed her into a creature of the night. Her temper flared and she headed to Darko’s house.



            When he saw who was at his door, Darko, began laughing. He told Ashby that he knew he would be seeing her and wanted to know what she thought of his gift.

            She got right into this face and began shouting at him.  She cursed him for turning her and for his overall behavior. As she yelled, screamed and cried at him Darko just stared into her big grey eyes, never once did he divert his eyes from hers. Pretty soon she began to feel light headed and disoriented. 

            When she left it was three hours later and she had no memory of what happened from the time she got there and yelled at him till the time she left his home. 


            On her way home she ran into her good friend Christy Quinn. She filled Christy in on everything that had happened with Darko. Christy was shocked and reached out to place a comforting hand on her friends shoulder.



            Before Ashby had time to think she grabbed Christy’s arm and sank her teeth deep into her flesh pulling out Christy’s warm, salty blood.

            Christy was too stunned to struggle or scream or anything. She just stared at Ashby wide eyed. 


            The effects of human blood cased Ashby to go insane. Vampires refer to this behavior as blood lust. She quickly got herself under control and began apologizing over and over to her friend.


            Christy had encounter vampires before and told Ashby that she loved her and that she was okay. She advised Ashby to go home and talk to Asher and get it worked out. Being drunk from makes a Sim tired so Christy hugged her friend and headed home for some much needed rest.


            When Ashby got home she changed her clothes and she and Asher sat down for a much needed talk. She told him that she was now a full fledged Vampire and their lives would now change. She told him about confronting Darko and that she had a missing three hours from her memory, and she told him her suspicions about what happened during those three hours. 

            Saying what she suspected caused her to break down. She cried as Asher held her in his arms. He rubbed her back, cooed in her ear and when her sobs started to cease he pushed her to arm’s length.

            “Babe, you are all I am ever going to want so the fact that you’re a vampire doesn’t change that. It just changes some of our behaviors.   As far as the other matter is concerned I have been asking you to continue your challenge and you keep avoiding the subject. Tonight we need sleep but I propose that if your suspicions are accurate then we actually sit down and talk about your challenge. Deal?”

            Ashby looked deep into her husband’s eyes, “Fine, but I can’t stand to think about being with another man. How can you look at me like that if what I think is true?”           

            Asher kissed the back of her hand, “I will admit the thought of you with another man does not make me happy, but we can figure that out when we decide if you are going to continue your challenge. As far as what Darko has done if I thought I had a chance against a vampire I would be at his house right now.”

            He took her hand and led her to their bedroom.


            Time went by and soon a baby bump began to develop on Ashby. She knew that her fears had been true. 


            She did some research on vampires and found out that a vampire’s sire could be very controlling but even though they could make their “children” do many things they could never really get them to do something that wasn’t in their heart.

            Perhaps deep down Ashby truly wants to continue her challenge. 



            The night had become Ashby’s time. She missed her kids because they were out playing and enjoying the sunshine during the day and slept when she was allowed to go out at night. 

            Walking was good for the baby and almost nightly she would go walking around time. One night she met Darko at the park.

            “Wow, look at you. When is my son due?” Darko said with a toothy grin.

            “You will stay away from my baby.” Ashby shot at him.

            “This baby is half me.” Darko said as he reached forward and tried to place his hands on Ashby’s stomach.

            She slapped his hands away, “You stay away from me, my family and this baby.” She turned on her heel and fled.



            A few weeks before the baby was due Taloria came down with the flu. She couldn’t keep anything down. Asher carried his little girl upstairs, tucked her into his and Ashby’s bed, read her a bed time story and allowed her sleep away from the other children. 


            Missing her sister Addison would come home from school, do her homework and then play in the sandbox. 

            Taloria was only ill for a few days and was soon back running around with her sister.


            Soon it was time for Holden to be a teenager. Asher and Ashby threw him a party.   They party was a success and everyone cheered as Holden spun into teenage-hood.


            What a handsome young man Holden turned into. He has very soft, kind eyes and features much like his sisters. Ashby was worried however when he inherited the new Rebellious trait. She wondered what that would cause her little boy to do.


            As the party started to wind down the most unexpected thing happened. Ashby went into labor.  Due to the circumstances she had a home birth.


            Sunset Valley TX, please welcome your newest member…. Lockland Mulberry-Lemi. Even though Ashby didn’t like Darko she felt it was only right to include his last name on the birth certificate. Lockland had the right to know someday.


Thank you as always for reading. I hope to hear what you are thinking of Ashby’s life. Please leave a comment or find me on facebook under Ashby Lemi.


Ashby Starr Bright – Babies 23 and 24


BABIES 23 and 24

            Hello again readers of Ashby’s blog it is I, Nina Nestor, back to provide you another update in Ashby’s life. I’m sad to report that this update may not be full of flowers and butterflies, but it is what has happened. 

            As you saw in the last blog update we ended with the birth and aging of Royce and Rooney into toddlers. Ashby was all set to begin them on their skill training when she got a call from the adoption agency. They told her that a set of siblings had just come into the state’s custody. They told her that the Child, named Wren, and the toddler, named Holden, was orphaned two weeks ago when their parents were victims in a bank robbery gone badly. Ashby didn’t need even a minute to answer with a big yes. She asked the Princess Triplets, Roisin, Callum and JayLeen to watch Royce and Rooney, and set out to pick up the new additions to their family.


Wren Starr Bright



            Holden Starr Bright


            The children were precious and pretty well adjusted despite their loss. Ashby thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with them during their time at the adoption agency. However, their time was cut very short when Ashby received a call from the local police department.

            She was told that another meteor had hit her house.   The house was beyond repair and this time there were causalities. Roisin, JayLeen, Rocye and Rooney had been killed instantly, but Callum was at the local hospital life support.

            Ashby was a mess. Someone from the agency drove Ashby to the hospital and they kept the kids there for the time being. I have mentioned before I am not suppose to get involved, but I knew Ashby wasn’t in any shape to make phone calls so I called Victor and before I knew it he was back in Twinbrook by his last surviving daughters side. 

            Distraught with grief and worry the next two weeks went by in a blur. Ashby’s good friend Asher Lemi came and picked up Wren and Holden and stayed in a motel with them as Ashby planned and held the funerals of four of her daughters and when she wasn’t doing that she and Victor took vigilance by Callum’s side.

            Beautiful princess Callum lasted two weeks before slipping away from this world. Her death took away Ashby’s last strand of happiness and she dropped to her knees, cursed God and cried until she had no more tears. She vowed that she would never continue the 100 baby challenge, using many colorful words to describe it and how trying it was on people.

            Callum was buried next to her sisters and two days after Victor flew home and Ashby was convinced by Asher and Violet to move to Sunset Valley. Yes she had children still in Twinbrook who wanted her to stay, but Ashby felt that they needed to continue with their lives and not be worried about how well their mother is doing.

            Oh before I leave out any details Victor asked me to stay on and continue to report on Ashby’s life and I followed the Starr Bright family to Sunset Valley.

            Since Asher had a nice house and no roommates the plan was for Ashby, Wren and Holden to stay with him until Ashby could find a suitable house for them three of them. As many of you know there has always been something between Asher and Ashby and one night, after the children were tucked into bed, Asher went out to take a night time stroll when he came upon Ashby grieving for her loss. He took her into arms and held her. Soon he was kissing her neck, cheeks and lips and finally he confessed the feelings he has had for Ashby all these years. Ashby was so touched and overwhelmed with his confession that she kissed him and that night they were intimate for the first time since they conceived Derrick. 

            The next day Asher proposed to Ashby and she agreed. I, Nina Nestor, isn’t sure she agreed for all the right reasons, but I have to say that Asher Lemi is the perfect guy for Ashby and if he can’t help her deal with her grief then no one can.

            A week later they went to the justice of peace and had a very private wedding. Their friends and family were a bit disappointed that they chose to be so private, but many understood the grief Ashby was experience that they chose not to voice their disappointment. 


            The two set out right away to find a house that would be theirs and not just Asher’s. It didn’t take them long to find this house by the beach. It was a fixer upper, but Asher is handy and liked working with this hands and it was something that could help distract Ashby. 



            Derrick talked to his wife Sally and with her blessing he came and helped his parents move into their new home. With mixed feelings of happiness that his parents were finally together and worry about his mother’s terrible loss he stayed through the weekend. 



            Both Ashby and Derrick had a blast spending time together. Ashby had always longed to be a bigger part of Derrick’s life and the weekend they spent together was like going back in time. Derrick wanted to impress his mom and Ashby wanted to dote on him. At the end of the weekend it was time for Derrick to get back to Sally and their family. Again Ashby felt a loss, but with this loss she knew that she would see Derrick and his family more often now that they lived in the same town.


            Family life and routines started quite early. Homework for Wren, Dinner time and together time were being instilled in the children right away. Ashby didn’t want to feel the ache and loss she felt with Derrick with any more of her kids. 



            Every day Asher looked at the little face of Holden and tried to talk to Ashby about her challenge. He wanted her to continue, much like Connery did, and knew how much it meant to her even though she was still talking out of grief and said that it didn’t. She just refused to listen to him or talk about it. All she said was that she was done and that was final. This made Asher sad, but overall he was full of happiness to be married to the woman of his dreams and helping her raise two of the sweetest children he had ever met. He couldn’t believe how well adjusted they were considering what they had been through.


            Asher would often find Ashby starring into space with a sad look on her face. Not once did she fail to meet the needs of either Wren or Holden, but he got the very distinct feeling that she continued to blame herself for the death of her five girls. He didn’t understand how she could feel it was her fault. How could she have stopped a meteor?



            Asher thought that a good dose of friends and family would be a mood booster for Ashby. He invited her best friend, and soon to be sister-in-law, Violet Newbie over as well as their good friend Christy Quinn. He also had Derrick come over to take care of Holden so that he and Ashby could have some adult time. 



            While Christy and Ashby were outside chatting Asher and Violet sat down and had a very in-depth talk about Ashby and her moods. 

            “Asher, you just need to be patient with her. You have to let her go through the grief process. Ash has been through a lot the past couple of years, first losing her mom, then Connery, her dad and then five of her children. I can’t imagine how she is able to be as strong as she is right now.” Violet always knows the right words to say to people in need.

            She and Asher talked extensively about and what he could do for her but the conversation didn’t end before he gushed about how happy he was that he and Ashby were married. He had loved her for so long and had intentions of revealing his feelings, but when he found out Connery was sick and had the same feelings he had totally backed off, but the wait was well worth it.


            “Ashby, I have to admit that I have always wanted you to realize what a special man Asher is.” Violet admitted not looking into her best friend’s eyes. 

            “Are you sure you aren’t just saying that because you are smitten with his twin brother Ashley?” Ashby giggles.

            “That could be part of it, but even before I met A.J. I knew Asher was the best man for.” 

            Ashby just shook her head and when I asked what she had been thinking about she just said “Connery.”


            Ashby and Asher enjoyed their adult time and Ashby was very grateful that her two best friends were able to spend the day with them. She missed her kids back in Twinbrook, but she was warming up to living so close to good friend’s, and it helped that she heard from one or more of her kids every day.


            Since the time she started school in Sunset Valley Wren begged to be in dance and finally Ashby and Asher consented but her she would only be allowed to continue if she kept her grades up as well as work in practice time. Every night before bed she goes outside to the dance floor and practices. She is rather a good dancer.



            Even though I feel that Ashby agreed to marry Asher out of grief and loneliness they truly are in love, but even with a strong love there are problems and their current problems were 1) Asher wanted Ashby to continue her challenge and she refused to and 2) Asher wanted to have kids with Ashby but again she was doing everything she could to avoid that.



            Ashby and Asher make a great team and wonderful parents. Holden is well rounded and learned his skills quickly and Wren is doing very well in her dance class and has been on the honor roll in every grade so far.


            Dance, good grades, and baking, Wren was a well rounded girl. Even thought she didn’t sell anything during her first bake sale she had a blast talking to the people at the park.


            Even though Ashby was being very cautious about getting pregnant she and Asher still conceived. Ashby had mixed feelings on the matter, but as her pregnancy went on the more and more she got excited about it.


            Asher on the other hand was excited from day one. Every time he walked past Ashby he would grab her arm and stop her in her track so he could talk to their little one. He couldn’t wait for the baby to be born.


            Time went by and finally the day came for the Lemi baby to be born. Ashby opted on a home birth and after house of labor she and Asher were blessed with…..


Addison Lemi



Taloria Lemi


            Ashby was in the nursery talking care of Taloria when she got a strange phone call. The person on the other line wouldn’t answer her greeting and just about the time she was going to hang up an old shaky voice came on and said, “I want to be in your challenge”

            Ashby said, “I’m sorry I am not doing the challenge anymore.” And hung up.


            As I was leaving the Lemi house that night I took this picture this is the sight a strange man standing in the bushes was looking at. As I was leaving I heard him mutter, “Reject me? I will teach you to reject me.” 


            Thank you as always for reading. Please come back to see if Asher convinces Ashby to continue her challenge and find out who the strange man in the bushes was. Also I know Ashby would love you to hear you thoughts. Leave a comment here or on her facebook page at Ashby Lemi.


Ashby Starr Bright – babies 21 and 22





            Hello my name is Nina Nestor, and I am from the same small country as Victor Noosebaum. Prince Victor has hired me to come to Twinbrook USA, follow Ms. Ashby and her family around and continue her blog for her. You see in one of their phone conversations Ashby expressed how hard it was to maintain her blog while taking care of her children. Prince Victor didn’t want her to stop blogging and now I am here to continue telling her story for her. So let’s get started.



            Ashby, as she often does after every delivery, changed up her look. She decided to go with an up-do with a simple dress. Another set of triplets in the house is going to make things a little busier around the house.


            Things went along normally with not major events. Ashby took care of the babies, the children grew and the teens attended school and did teen things.

            Then it was time for the triplet’s to become toddlers. Ashby needed to get them started on their skills so they could grow into prospering child, teens and finally young adults.

            Here is little Roisin fully clad in her purple outfit. Judging from her red eyebrows she may inherit her mother’s red hair. She certainly got the signature Starr eye color and skin tone.


            Look at little Ms. Callum. She too has gotten the red hair, and her mother’s eye color, but her skin tone is a little lighter, a nice combination of Ashby and Victor if I do say so myself.


            And last by not least little Ms. JayLeen. It seems like she has gotten more of Victor’s rounder face, but has inherited a lot of her late grandma Mirid, the black hair and dark blue eyes. 

            *****Ashby is having some trouble uploading some of her kids to the exchange, but you can find any of them that have been uploaded under her user name Xur28 on thesims3.com*****


            I was right, two red heads and a brunette. These three are so darn cute and they get along real well, but in observing them it seems like JayLeen is a little bit withdrawn from the other two, but I am excited to see them grow and develop.


            Bren has decided to take up inventing. I wonder if this will be something she will enjoy or just a passing phase.



            What are these two doing out so late. I know it is the weekend, but if they aren’t careful they are going to be brought home by the police and I don’t think that Ashby needs that kind of stress. I would love to tell these girls to go home, but I was hired to write not to get involved.


            It is moment’s like this that I am really glad I took this job. Ashby taking the time just to enjoy her children, it really touches my heart.


            Perhaps I was wrong about JayLeen she and Callum seem to be getting a long splendid. They are such funny little girls. Are they seriously comparing boogers? These little girls make me laugh.


            Peek-a-boo JayLeen I see you. I thoroughly enjoy watching these little girls and this family. They are so loving and understanding and when I came into this job I thought that a family of 21 would be distant and strange, but they aren’t. It is a pleasant surprise to watch them.


            It took several tries to get these three active girls to sit still long enough for me to take a picture of them all together, but when Ashby got excited about the prospect of these types of pictures I knew it was worth it. I guess she always wanted to get pictures like this but being a challenge mother sometimes made her a little absent-minded.


            I don’t know Ms. Ashby very well, yet, so I am not sure if this is normal behavior but she seems to be withdrawing from her family slightly. She has been working with the triplets on their skills, but as soon as she puts them to bed she takes off. Sometimes it is fishing, other times it is to play her guitar and others just to be alone. I sure hope she is okay.



            With as many children as Ashby has she is bound to run in to one or two every time she goes out. Kenyon and Kemper gave their mother a tight hug and unleashed months worth of catching up.   The Grinch triplets seemed to be doing well. Although they are all three still single they are happy living their lives one day at a time.



            With mom being away it was up to the teens and children at home to help out with the triplets when needed. When JayLeen and Callum both woke up with bad dreams the ever so sweet Bren and Heavenly were there to comfort them. Roisin seems to sleep quite heavily and rarely wakes up until it is time to wake up.



            After the twins got the toddlers settled back down they took some time to play peek-a-boo with them before putting them back in their crib. It is just wonderful to see how well adjusted the Starr Bright children are and it still surprises me that a family of the 100 baby challenge can like this. Perhaps someday, after I am done reporting on this challenge, I can observe other challenges.


            Look who is finally walking. This was the last skill the girls needed to learn before they could become children.


            What a little beauty little Roisin has become. With features much like her mothers, I am sure she will be catching the eye of little boys far and wide, even if she does have cooties. However, she did get the slob trait and despite her classy looks she has some undesirable manners.


            Wow look at this beauty. Callum is stunning and all girl, she loves playing dress-up, dolls and house and she loves to take care of her sisters even though she is in the middle of the three. It seems that she too has gotten most of her features from her mom, but not matter if that is true or not it is panning out that Ashby and Victor have beautiful children.


            And the youngest of the bunch, JayLeen. Except for her skin tone and face shape she looks nothing like her sisters. If her skin was darker she would be the spitting image of her grandma Mirid. JayLeen lives in her own special world of fairies and kindness. She is very artistic and if she would be allowed she would spend all of her time writing or painting.



            Day night, night day JayLeen painted. Her talent was revealed pretty early and Ashby couldn’t be prouder of her little girl.


            Boy aren’t these girls are so ambitious. Bren, Heavenly, Roisin and Callum all are increasing their logic skills together. It won’t be long until Bren and Heavenly will be teenagers.

            And speaking of aging up it was time for the Holy twins to become Young adults.

From teens


To Young Adults



            Twins? Yes the boys have similar features, but twins? What handsome young men they turned out to be. They were worried about leaving their mother with how distance she has gotten, but they knew this was part of the rules and they hugged her tight, said their goodbyes to their sisters and promised to call and stop by often. After they left I saw tears spilling out of Ashby’s eyes and she excused herself to her room.

            She knew that it was time for find the next father for her challenge, but before she set out on the task Bren and Heavenly expressed that they wanted to age into teens a few days early. Ashby thought about it for some time and finally agreed.


            Bren is breathtaking. She asked her dad, Brogan Newbie, for contacts as a give and he wired the money to Ashby asking her to set up an appointment to make that happen. Ashby would have been willing to do so, but expressed to me how happy it made her knowing how close these two girls are to their dad and that he was the type of guy that would be there for them. 

            Bren got her grandma’s eye coloring, her mom’s redish hair, but her skin tone and facial features are more like Brogan then Ashby.


            Then there is Heavenly and her name really suits her looks. She got Ashby’s eye color but everything else looks more like Brogan.

            The Newbie – Starr Bright girls are beautiful.


            Callum I think you can take her. The girls had been out fishing with Ashby but when curfew rolled around Ashby sent the girls home and she stayed to fish some more. I wonder what could be so important that a mother couldn’t go home with her children to find them dinner.


            With Ashby away Heavenly decided to learn to cook and make her siblings a real dinner instead of having them eat cereal or soup. She read the instructions to the tee and made a decent meal. She really enjoyed cooking and decided that she was going to get better at it.



            When Bren became a teen she asked for piano lessons and as easily as painting came for JayLeen beautiful music came for Bren. Every time she played the family couldn’t resist gathering around to listen.


            Peek this little bear just showed up one day and she can be found in various rooms and places at the Starr Bright house. She is too cute for words and the kids enjoy having her around.


            Finally I know what was so important to keep Ashby away from her family. The death fish…she was trying to catch the death fish. So what could she want with it? Is she going to try and bring Connery back? Wait didn’t he make her promise not to do that?  My instinct is to ask, but I will just wait and see what happens.



Ambrosia is what she has made and she sat down and ate it. Why did she do such a thing? You, reader, know her better than I can you answer that question?




            Before Ashby started her challenge she traveled to China in search for her lost cousin Harmony. There she learned some songs and when JayLeen heard her singing one she was interested to learn it too. Ashby taught JayLeen who had to teach Callum and when Roisin saw the two of them singing together she didn’t want to be left out so she went to Ashby to be taught. Now singing can be heard all over the house. It is quite nice to hear the singing and the piano music floating out of the house as I approach. 



            The time came for Bren and Heavenly to age into young adults and move out of the house. Ashby threw then a party and Bren was super excited when her mom’s good friend and her Godfather Asher Lemi was able to attend. The two spent a good time catching up before she and her sister aged.





            The two sisters love each other so very much and they were excited to go and see the world. Their dad had arranged a trip for them to see their grandma Violet and they were very excited to see her and spend some time with her. They knew that their grandma was going through a lot of stuff right now so their plan was to be there when she needed them and the rest of the time they were going to explore Sunset Valley and perhaps get to know some of their aunts and uncles and of course spend some quality time with their dad Brogan.


            When the triplets saw me taking pictures of the twins they asked for theirs to be taken. This was the best of our session and they are so fun to photograph.


            Callum has taken up star gazing and before she was a teenager she had discovered and named a medium yellow sib giant star The Connery after her mom’s late husband, a large yellow sub giant start The Callum after herself and a new planet which she named Casbar.  


            Then without warning the next father of the challenge showed up, his name is Adam Watson and he is a friend of Ashby’s friend Christy Quinn. I apology dear readers for my lack of a better picture of the gentleman, but he is very handsome with his multi colored hair and built body. He arrived on Ashby’s doorstep and explained that he was out to be in as many challenges that he could be in. Ashby liked his look and his niceness and allowed him to participate.



            Ashby’s pregnancy went along just fine. While the girls were at school she went out and mingled with her friends, neighbors and her children. When she ran into her daughters Journey and Stella she couldn’t resist taking time to catch up and announce her pregnancy. 


            During her pregnancy Ashby decided to take up inventing and it looks like she really got into her work. She invented a couple of toys for her future children and she made a harvester for one of her neighbors. 


            Days before Ashby had her baby(s) the triplets aged into beautiful teenagers.


            Roisin went with a funky hairstyle that suits her face perfectly. She is spunky and fun and she has a great personality despite her “slob” trait.


            Callum is still the most girly out of the three and went with a side braid and her favorite time frame is the Fifty’s and she went to a vintage store and find a fun yellow poodle skirt.


            JayLeen, the ever free spirit is stunning with her piercing eyes and smooth features.



            The day before Ashby went into labor Newbie called her. He told her that he had participated in fellow challenge mom Dawn Turner’s challenge and they have twin boys Dallas and Tucker Turner.   Newbie was so very excited about being a father and Ashby couldn’t be happier about being a grandma. Although she did wish that they lived closer so that she could visit them.



            Labor was brought on a bit early for Ashby when a meteor stuck their house. Thank Sims God that everyone was fine, but clean up took days. During the commotion two beautiful girls were welcomed into the Starr Bright home and they were both safe and health.

Readers please welcome the newest Starr Bright’s:


Royce Starr Bright and


Rooney Starr Bright.

Ashby Starr Bright – babies 18,19 and 20


BABY 18, 19 AND 20




            As with every new baby there is a new look for me. This time I decided to be a little conservative. I think, for once, I look like a mom.

            ***UPDATE*** The children who have now left my home are all doing well. Some of them are advancing in their jobs, some of them are trying to discover themselves and others are traveling. However, only three of them are in a relationship. My eldest Harmony is dating a guy named Neil Chacha. Elvira and Lars Newbie are doing well together and I am sure there are wedding bells in their future and I found out that my eldest adopted Son, Bennett Starr, is dating a gentleman by the name of Godrick Kane. I wish the two of them luck.


            It was a Tuesday when the Grinch Triplets aged into Young Adults and moved out of the house. I decided they could skip school that day and we had a party. It was the first time since my mom’s funeral that I really got to spend some time with my dad. Little did I know it would be the last time I saw him too. A few weeks later he passed in his sleep. Aunt Magic said it was because he couldn’t live without my mom, and you know what I believe that. 

            The party was great, but in a way I was sad to have it. It meant another three of my children leaving and since the day was so busy we forgot to take our good-bye pictures. So my handsome Grinch boys left my home without a good-bye.


            Handsome, Handsome Kole, he kept his curly hair and he has very handsome features.

            Here is my little insane boy Kenyon. I sure hope the girls can get past that trait and see how wonderful he is. He will have beautiful babies with some girl if he chooses to.

            And last, but not least here is Kemper. I think he got more of my facial features then the Grinch’s.

            I miss my Grinch Triplets, but I wish them well in life and I know they will do wonderful things.



            A couple of days later while Newbie and Quinn were at school it was time to age up Brogan’s girls so I could get them started with their skills. 

            Here is Bren; she is such a cutie with her dad’s cool skin tone, her grandma Mirid’s eye color and my hair color, but with a hint of pink from her dad.

            Here is Bren’s twin Heavenly. She is a stunning child with big grey eyes, and pink hair like her dad. She too inherited her father’s skin tone and I believe she is going to be my dreamer. I often find her staring at nothing… just space…just dreaming.

            That weekend we had another party and two more of my children aged up. This time it was Newbie and Quinn’s turn. Both had been pestering me for weeks to age up, yes even before the Grinch Triplet’s were YA’s, and finally I relented know that I would need help with teaching Bren and Heavenly.

            Newbie’s ambition in life is to become a star. I just don’t understand it since he is a genius, but he wasn’t to be rich and famous. Upon his age up he decided to go with a more suave look. I think he pulls it off. What do you think?

            Too handsome for words, here is Quinn. His skin tone is lighter than his brother’s, but they look very similar. They both got my eyes and cheek bones, but Quinn’s hair is a brownish/yellow while Newbie’s is red with white highlights.

            We got busy teaching the girls their skills. Both Newbie and Quinn are so very helpful. They are so doting on their baby sisters, but as much as I love the help I wish they would get out and make new friends and just do teenager things.


            Our family is pretty tight knit right now and I am very happy with that. I love reading to the girls. They are like little sponges and take in everything.


            Bren and Heavenly are very close. From playing together to just sitting and being with one another the two of them were never very far away from each other.



            I found myself getting distracted from the challenge and I was enjoying spending time with my kids and practicing my guitar where ever I could.


            It wasn’t until I heard one of those nasty rumors about me having children out of wedlock that I decided that I better get back on track with my challenge. The sooner it was over the sooner I could get the rumors to stop for good. When the rumors start I always got to court for slander and I have never lost one of my cases, but it will be nice to not have to do that every couple of months.


            If you recall my best friend Violet Newbie created my new beautiful house for me and I loved how she had the nursery, but one day when I was out shopping I saw a new nursery set that I just had to have for my children so I ordered it. Once I got word that my order was in I set forth redecorating it. It isn’t a Violet Newbie original but I think it turned out okay. My girls seemed to like it.

            The girls learned their skills quickly and soon it was time for them to age up and for me to continue my challenge. I watched my little girls play the hours before I aged them up and they never ceased to take my breath away. I was both thrilled and in agony about ageing them up. Thrilled to see what they would look like and what they would do and in agony that time flew for children in the 100 baby challenge. 

            I sure hope that all of my children understand why I do this challenge and I hope none of them end up resenting me for taking away so much of their precious time.



            First to age up was Bren. As you can see her favorite color is green…she is my tomboy of the twins and she loves being outside and playing catch with her big brothers, well I should say brother since Quinn hates going outside.

            Heavenly lives up her name. She is very angelic looking with her cool green skin, her silky pink hair and her steel grey eyes. She may have gotten my eye coloring but I think she picked up more of the Newbie features. Her favorite color is blue, but she is defiantly the girly girl of the twins. She found this dress at the EA store and she reminded her of those old Victorian stories and she begged me to let her have it. Of course I gave in as I always do when my kids show signs of really wanting something.

            The next day I sent the kids off to school and since it was the first time in a while that I had my day to myself I decided to go for a job. I went upstairs and changed but when I walked outside I saw this guy sitting my bench. He looked at me and gave me a sweet smile. 



            I took a seat next to him and smiled back. He introduced himself Victor Noosebaum. His accent was very heavy and he explained that he was from a distant land and his family was pressuring him to get serious with someone and create an heir. 

            I asked him why it was so important to have an heir and why his family was so pushy, but he told me in the most polite way that it didn’t really matter. What mattered was that he wasn’t ready to settle down with a woman and while he was browsing the internet one day he came across my blog and after reading it knew I was the answer to his dilemma. He went on to say that he left his little country and flew to Twinbrook right away, and that he didn’t have a lot of time but he was hoping that he could spend the day with me and hopefully I would allow him to take part in my challenge. The only thing he requested is that he could have involvement with his child and that when they are old enough they would be flown to his country and taught about this family. 

            How could I resist such a sweet handsome foreigner? 



            I went up to change and when I came back down Victor had found my dance floor. We had a great time together and when we finished dancing we went and relaxed in the hot tub where baby number 18 was conceived. 

            Soon after Victor left to catch a plane back to where he is from. I had a little time before my kids got home from school so I logged into the computer and googled Victor Noosebaum, and do you know what I found out? I found out he was a prince of a little country far from here. A prince!! I was going to have real live royalty children. This was very exciting to me. 


            Time went on pretty fast after that.   As always my little family found a routine. My pregnancy was going well and everything was right in the world. 


            One night the family was woken up by an awful noise in the back yard. We all rushed down there as quickly as we could to find a man had drowned in our pool. When we arrived on the scene death was already there to take him.

            Does he look familiar to any of you? He should. Upon an autopsy it was discovered that the young man was Steel Storm, the third missing child of Harmony Storm and Mr. Green. He was going by a different name and he and three women had just moved to Twinbrook.

            This news rocked my world. How could one of Harmony’s children be dead and happened to meet that untimely death in my pool? It was crazy to think about. 

            His funeral was heartbreaking. The three women were there two were pregnant and one had a small child. I didn’t introduce myself, but I saw Mr. Green talking to each of them and it didn’t seem like he liked what he was being told.

            A few weeks after the funeral I paid a visit to my good friend Mr. Green and the visit left my heart in turmoil. The women at the funeral had filled him in on his son’s life. They told him that Steel, or Darvon, as he was going by, was bounced around from home to home after he was found and no one wanted him due to this evilness. The three women he lived with were all his, the young child was his and the other two were pregnant with his babies. He had been trying to rob me the night he fell in the pool and drowned. 

            Gosh I can’t image what Harmony would do or say if she found out that her son lived such a hard life.


            During my pregnancy I received many phone calls from Victor asking about my health and the health of his unborn child. He really is a sweet man. 

            It has seemed like only yesterday that I had met Victor and he requested to be in my challenge and I was coming home with a baby carrier. Victor and I had multiple children. Three to be exact…. Sims World and Twinbrook please welcome:

            Life has a way of twisting and changing and with the discovery of another one of Harmony’s children I just feel as if I may be closing in on the truth about what happened to her. 

            Also with both of my parents now gone I feel that much alone. I know I have wonderful friends, like Vi, Asher, Della (both of them), Addy, Danny, Ava, CheyLee, and many many others, but doing the 100 baby challenge can be lonely because of the rules you really have to keep your heart guarded and family is a huge support for this task. I still have my kids and that helps, but I truly miss my parents. 

            **As always I want to thank you for reading my blog. I hope you are all still enjoying Ashby’s challenge. Please I would love to hear what you think. You can leave me a message here or look me up on Facebook under Ashby Starr Bright. ~Jen~ **


Ashby Starr Bright – babies 16 and 17


BABY 16 and 17




                As always with new babies I sport a new look. I colored my hair back to red but without the yellow and turquoise highlights. I am really enjoying this new look. I hope the rest of you do as well.


                Newbie and Quinn were very good babies. They required a lot of attention but their personalities and demur is very sweet.

                After losing Connery I have decided that I am going to have my children baptized from now on and since Gabriel proved to me there are angles I decided that it is better to be safe than sorry. I called up my children’s name sakes, Violet Newbie and Christy Quinn, and asked them if they would do me the honor of being the boy’s godmothers. Violet agreed to be Newbie’s Godmother and Christy agreed to be Quinn’s. 

                I know it is a little unusual to have different Godparents for twins, but no one said I lived by the rules. I also told both women that I wasn’t choosing a Godfather because if either one of them ends up settling down after their challenge then we will just make their spouse’s the godfather by proxy. 

                We had a nice ceremony where Pastor Pratt baptized my kids and announced that my two best friends were their godmothers. We had a nice picnic lunch afterwards and I was glad to spend some time with my children and friends. 





                I try to encourage my kids to be all they can be and when Kenyon came to me expressing an interest in art I told him to go up to my room and see what he can do on the draft table. Also the following week I had him signed up for art classes after school.

                My boy is actually pretty talented and I hope he keeps up with his art as he gets older and moves along in life.


                Kemper is very attached to the babies in the house and I loved watching him with Newbie and Quinn. Once the twins were born Kole wasn’t seen around much. He stayed out late with school activities and went to friend’s house. I am not sure if is uncomfortable with the new babies, if he is feeling neglected or what his issue is. I really should sit him down and have a talk.




                Before I knew it, it was time for the twins to age into toddlers. Here is little Newbie Starr Bright. You can’t see it in this picture very well, but he got my eye color and even my red hair and I didn’t even have red hair when he was conceived. 

                Newbie Starr Bright: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3900124



                Little Quinn got my eye color as well and I think his dad’s hair color. I am not sure on that because with Gabriel’s buzz hair cut I really didn’t know what color it was. 

                Quinn Starr Bright: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3900108

                Both boys are little angles and I love that they are in my life. 


                It looks like the boys are going to be good friends. I really do hope this is the case. They are really lucky to have each other. 



                They wanted to do everything together. When one was potty training the other wanted to be. However, Quinn took a bit longer to learn that skill. He was not too sure about the potty chair. 


                For a little insane Sim Kenyon is the most advanced of the Grinch Triplets. He is always trying and learning new things. He is perpetually grumpy and wakes up on the wrong side of the bed many days, but I love him more and more every day. Perhaps someday he will a master chef or a famous painter. The world is at his feet and I can’t encourage him, as well as his siblings, enough to go out and take the world by storm.


                I miss Connery everyday but having these precious tots’s around help keep me distracted from thinking too deeply about the pain in my heart. Newbie is the faster learning out of them but Quinn is my cuddler. 

                I am so glad that Gabriel convinced me, even if he had to use his angle powers, to have these boys. I just wish he were around to see how beautiful they are growing up to be. Well I guess he is looking down on them. I am eager to see them progress and grow.




Magic Storm: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3900131

                I recently had a visitor. I don’t really know how to describe our visit. I can only really say that it was awkward.   My Aunt Magic, Harmony’s Mom, came to visit my parents. She and my mom haven’t seen each other in years and except for Magic telling my mom about Harmony’s disappearance they haven’t even really spoken. 

                I think I have mentioned before that my aunt Magic has always been jealous of my mom Mirid. She believes that mom got the life that she was supposed to get. 

                During their uncomfortable visit my parents told her that I was doing the 100 baby challenge to honor Harmony. They told her about Connery and my children and Magic decided that she wanted to see me after all these years. I haven’t seen her since I was a little girl. 

                The beginning of our visit was uncomfortable but pleasant and then the topic of Harmony was brought up and Magic lost it. She lost it and began shouting at me that it was my fault that my cousin went missing. She told me that if I hadn’t gotten everything I wanted out of life and she got nothing she would never have gotten involved in the 100 baby challenge and would never have gotten hurt. She went on to say that she thinks one of the men who was in or wanted to be in her challenge that has done something to her. 

                I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. My aunt was accusing me for Harmony’s disappearance based on my life. This was typical for Magic, but it was still very hurtful. 

                Our visit didn’t last too much longer after that. My mom called me as soon as they got home, and since they live across the street it was almost immediately, apologizing for her sister. I told my mom that it wasn’t her fault and to not worry about me I know who my Aunt Magic is and it didn’t bother me. That was a little white lie. I couldn’t allow my mom to get upset even more about this. You see she has been sick for some time and she didn’t need that added stress.

                After Magic left and hopefully doesn’t come back, I couldn’t get it out of my head that she thinks a challenge father or a potential challenge father could have done something to Harmony. Doing the challenge I hadn’t had a bad experience with the men I have chosen, but I know others who have. Vi and Della Alex were both raped and there have been others that have had questionable experiences with some of the men who have come into their lives. 

                Could one of these men have hurt Harmony, or worse? Could the 100 baby challenge be the reason why my cousin is missing? Many thoughts whirled around in my mind. I decided that I would call the police chief that was still working on Harmony’s case and let him know Magic’s theory, but that would have to wait till the next morning.


                I really enjoy when my children bring home friends. It allows me to be introduced to other families in Twinbrook, I don’t get out as much as I want because I always have babies to look after, and it shows me that my kids can be independent and when they are ready to move on they will be okay.

                It is especially nice to nice to see my Grinch Boy’s make friends because they stigma of being the Grinch’s son can be a little much sometimes.   Here is Kole with this new friend Fellow Stine. 


                Now he is trying his hand as sculpting. My boy is so talented, what can’t he do. Oh wait I know the answer to that question. He can’t do his homework. I have been having trouble with keeping this boy awake after school to do this homework. He comes home, takes a nap, eats and then works on his talent, and sometimes does his homework.

                I have been called into the school for a parent teacher conference about Kenyon. They say he falls asleep in school and that he is always grump and disrupts the other students. I just don’t know what to do. It is times like these when I wish there was a “man” of the house to help guide my boys. Their father isn’t any help because he encourages this type of behavior. I may have to call on my fellow challenge mom’s for advice. 


                Kole and Kemper are so good with Newbie and Quinn. Kenyon isn’t very fond of the boys, but to each their own I say. I am so thankful to have the help in teaching the Angel Twins their skills. These two boys will grow up to be great fathers someday.


                I had another one of my dreams, or was it? I haven’t mustered the courage to as Kenyon if it was real or not. I am afraid of his answer. I dreamt that I came downstairs for a snack and Kenyon was there asking for Connery’s autograph. The sight was too much for me to handle and I dashed back up to my room. Could Connery’s ghost be haunting us or was just another dream conjured up by my missing him?



                Having children is wonderful, but it also has its frustrating times. Quinn and Newbie are like night and day. They are both exciting to watch and teach, but Quinn seems to be the one who gets bored easy and then a tantrum follows suit.


                My blasted aunt came over for a second time. It was late and she woke my sleeping tot’s with her loud voice. Then she had the Gaul to complain when they started to cry. I have no idea what she wanted but my dad escorted her back to their house. I just wish she would leave me and my family alone.


                Yippie look at my baby go. Oh wait who taught him how to open the door? Great now I am in trouble. 



                Before I knew it, it was time to age up the Angel twins and sends them off to school. 

                I think Newbie got more of my looks then his dad’s. He sure got my eye color and skin tone.

Newbie Starr Bright: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3900117



                Facial features it appears that Newbie and Quinn look alike and they both have my eyes, but Quinn’s hair color is different. I can only guess that he got the brown hair from his grandma Mirid and the blonde streaks from his dad.

Quinn Starr Bright: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3900107


                Speaking of my mom, Mirid, she passed away. My already broken heart was shattered. Growing up and even in adulthood I was close to her and now she was gone. We buried her in very sunny part of the cemetery. I think she will be happy there, but will I? Will my dad? My futures kids are going to miss out on so much not being able to meet their grandma. 



                One day while I was “visiting” my mom, which I found that I did a lot now that I didn’t have any babies or tot’s in the house, I was tapped on the shoulder by this handsome gentleman. It was Violet’s son Brogan Newbie. 

                I was so happy to see him and asked what he was doing in Twinbrook. He was very blunt and to the point that he wanted to be in my challenge. I was taken aback by his request. I mean I have known him since he was a very small boy, how could this little boy be here asking to be in my challenge?

                ME: “What? I..I…” 

                Brogan: “Ashby, I have admired you from a far for a long time and I have had a crush on you since I knew what a crush was. I know there is no way that you could return my feelings, but you could allow me to be with you one time and join your challenge.”

                ME:  “But Brogan you’re just a little boy.”

                Brogan: The laugh that emitted from him was far from a little boy’s laugh and he grabbed my shoulders. “Ashby, look at me. Really look at me. I’m not a little boy anymore.”

                And he wasn’t either. When I finally allowed myself to look at him for who he was and not as my best friend’s son I saw that he was anything but a child. He was handsome and sweet and made me tingle, but I wouldn’t admit that last part.

                ME: “Well I can see you are a man now, but it would be weird. You are my best friend’s son for heaven sake.”

                Brogan: “So, that that means is you know me. You know I am from a good family. You know that you can trust me and you know that I understand the 100 baby challenge being a child of one.” 

                All of his points were good, but I still couldn’t get the fact that he was Violet’s son out of my head.

                His hands were still gripped around my arms and he tried to pull me in for a kiss, and I quickly pulled away.

                ME: “Brogan, STOP IT! I said no.” 

                I came off a bit more angry then I intended too because the truth of it I did want to kiss him. Was it because I was lonely without Connery? Was I really attracted to this young man? I didn’t really know, but my head was telling me I had to be the grow-up here.

                Brogan: He gave me a big smile and then said, “I will let you think about it. In the mean time why don’t we go get a bite to eat?”


                I reluctantly agreed and we had a very nice meal at the Bistro. Afterwards he took me to the theater where we decided to take a tour.   While we were backstage in the dark I felt hands grab my shoulders from behind and pull me into a closet. Once Brogan’s lips found mine I was no longer able to be the adult and baby number 16 was conceived in a closet at the local theater. 


                He walked me home afterwards and he spent the night, but we did nothing but talk and cuddle all night long. Early the next morning, after breakfast, he headed back to Sunset Valley.




                Newbie and Quinn, for being so different in personality, seem to get along very well. They start their mornings out with a chat and the end their night with a game. It is quite nice to see this especially since the Grinch Triplets aren’t real close to one another.


                The months went quickly and I tried to plan a lot of family time. I knew once the babes were here they would take a lot of my time.

                “Go boy go…catch that huge fish for dinner tonight.” I try to always encourage my kids.


                “Mom, why does your tummy look and feel like a basketball?” Newbie asked.


                “I’m not sure.” I answered with a shrug, “But there is a baby in there. You and Quinn were in there once.” I informed him.

                “What? Quinn and I were in your basketball?” 

                Kids they are so darn cute. I explained to him about the baby and he walked off with a disgusted face. I couldn’t help but laugh.


                I was tossing the football around with Newbie when I went into labor.



                Newbie, who has never witnessed anything like this before, freaked out. My little manly boy screamed like a little girl, but everything was fine. I ended up delivering two healthy baby girls outside.


                And introducing Bren Starr Bright.  


                And Heavenly Starr Bright.
