Ashby Starr Bright – Babies 14 and 15

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 14 and 15

            The girls, Violet Newbie and Christy Quinn, picked me up and whisked me away for some down time. 

            First they took me to a salon where we all had makeovers. As I was getting pampered Vi and Christy took the liberty to un-pack my luggage and repack it. Meaning they got rid of all my black, mourning clothes and replaced them with colors and cheerful clothes. I wasn’t happy with this, but I was too tired to argue with them.

   

 

 

            We arrived in Barnacle Bay and Christy asked the drive to take us to an address and not to a hotel. I questioned it and she just told me to lean my head back against the cabs seat and to not stress. The one rule of the week was no stress allowed. 

 

            I did as instructed and soon we were pulling up to a cute three bedroom house. We got out of the cab and as Vi paid the driver Christy handed me a set of keys. 

            “What is this for?” I asked looking down at the cute little heart keychain. 

            “This is Connery’s surprise for you. This is your new vacation home. This house has been in his family for years and now it belongs to you.” 

            “Wh…?” I chocked on my question and tears began to well in my eyes.

            “What do you think sweetie?” Vi came up behind me and put her petite hands on my shoulder. She gave them a gentle squeeze and before I knew it I was in her arms crying on her shoulder.  

            She rubbed my back and stroked my hair and when my sobbing turned to sniffles she said, “Shssh now honey. Dry your eyes and let’s go inside.” 

I removed my face from her shoulder and turned to Christy’s extended hand and took hers into mine. I didn’t know this woman very well, but I knew why Connery treasured her friendship. The three of us walked in and the décor was warm and cozy and I immediately felt at home.  

 

            The girls allowed me to find my room and get myself together. After sitting in my room for about an hour I went into the bathroom and went to find my friends.

            “I’m getting a bit hungry.” I tried to smile to let them know I was going to try and have a good time.

            “I know the perfect place.” Vi got excited and ran to her purse. She pulled out a flier and threw it on the table. “When Connery told me where he was sending us I did some research and Hogan’s Deep Sea Dinner gets the best reviews in the area and the best part is it’s in an old pirate ship.” 

            Seeing Vi as excited as one of our kids when they discover new made my attempted smile turn into a genuine one. I started to remember that I had so much to be thankful for. Yes my heart was broken, but I had great friends and I was blessed with so many wonderful children and I was even blessed to have Connery in my life even for a short time.

 

 

            The dinner wasn’t far from my new home and the food was as wonderful as the reviews said it would be. After we left the dinner we walked down to the beach. Violet and I decided to relax and listen to the waves crash against the shore while Christy decided to explore, and what she found would give us hours of entertainment. 

 

            She found a little rec center down the beach. While there we started to get to know the locals and had some fun playing games, chatting and just being women. 

 

 

 

            We called it an early night the first night and I went straight to bed when we got home. My emotional state and the day’s events left me exhausted. Christy decided to work on her mixology skills and begged Vi to help her out. The next morning I got to hear all about their time. Vi told me that Christy can’t make a decent drink to save her life. Good thing she is an awesome mom. It sounds like the two of them had a great time.

 

            After breakfast we took a cab into town. We had a whole day of just being outdoors.

 

            First we went to the park. We went back to our childhood days and played on the park equipment and played tagged. We had a picnic with sandwiches and chips and it was a fun fun day.


 

 

            That night we built a fire by the shore and told ghost stories and talked about our kids.

 

            However, talking about family brought up my feelings for Connery and the plans we, I should say the plans that I, were making. I had to excuse myself and in the shadows of the night I wept over my loss and again I started to question how I was ever going to continue with my challenge.



 

 

 

            The girls found me in this state and decided that a ladies night is what I needed and they took me to one of the local hangouts. I am not sure what it was called, but we had a good night.

            We had a little too much to drink and I found myself spilling my woes to the mixologist. He was a good sport though and just listened to me. It surprised me to find out that the mixologist’s grandma and Connery’s mom were friends and it saddened the guy to find out that Connery had passed.

            It didn’t take long for the drinks to go to my head and I let loose and tried to dance away my worries. It seemed to work at the time. 

 

            The next morning I could not stomach food nor could I stand that smell of it. I couldn’t believe that Vi and Christy could, but according to their story the mixologist that I thought was so nice and friendly kept feeding me drinks in hopes that I would agree to let him be in my challenge. Thankfully I have two great friends who know I wasn’t ready for that and didn’t allow it to happen.

 

            After my stomach started to settle down we decided to go to the local pool. Don’t we look hot? 

            We had a great time swimming, dancing and meeting the locals. We wanted to make sure that we got to do everything we wanted to do because we would be heading home the following morning. 

 

 

            That night we dressed up in our finest and went out on the town. We stopped for drinks first, I ordered club soda this time, and then it was dinner and finally dancing. 

            The next morning as our plane floated through the sky I thought about the time we just had and I felt peaceful. For the first time since Connery passed I didn’t have this overwhelming feeling of dread. I didn’t have a knot the size of a baseball field in the pit of my stomach. For the first time I really thought that I would be able to continue my challenge. That is what my husband wanted. That is what Harmony wanted, and for the two of them and the sake of my future children that is what I wanted too.

 

****THANK YOU VIOLET NEWBIE FOR CREATING SUCH A LOVLEY HOUSE FOR ME AND MY CHILDREN. I AM NOT SURE HOW I CAN EVER REPAY YOU! ****

Christy and Vi dropped me off at a house I didn’t recognize. 

            “Surprise!!” My children, Vi and Christy yelled as my kids came running from the front door.

            “What is this?” I asked wondering why my kids were in this breath taking house. We didn’t know the people who lived here.

            “Ashby, you are my dearest friend and my heart breaks for what you have been through. Your Kids, all of them, Della, Addy, Christy, and myself designed this house for you. We started the plans sometime ago, before you found Connery and AJ and I started the constructions months ago. After Connery past we thought about waiting to present our gift for you, but we feel this will help you with your fresh start and to continue your challenge without so many memories.   We hope you like it.” Violet handed me the second set of keys I had received in the past few days.

            “This is too much. I love you all.” I couldn’t find the words to completely express what I was feeling, but I think they knew. 

            After I was able to gather myself I went to my children……


 

 

            only to find that they weren’t as I left them. The boys decided to age up without me. 

            Levi told me that he aged up to take care of the triplets because Ash and Elvira started to get real busy with their new lives. He just wanted to help out. 

            What a handsome young man my baby turned into. He still has own unique look, but I think he makes it work.

            The Grinch Triplets had also aged up. Kenyon told me that they knew how said I was and how much I missed Connery. They wanted to be able to help out more so they aged into teens.

            It appears that the boys got mostly The Grinch’s looks, but Kenyon got my eye color and Kemper got his grandma’s eye color. My Grinch boys are all unique and have very different personalities, but they are my boys and brothers. I am blessed to have such unique children.


 

 

            After hugging my newly aged children I excused myself with promises to tell them all about my trip and headed upstairs to find my new room and to get cleaned up. 

            I showered and went to my new walk in closet to find yet another gift. My friends are too much. They got me a whole new wardrobe. I noticed that there was very little black clothing.  I know they mean well and they want me to feel better, but a little part of me feels guilty that I am not wearing the traditional mourning garb to honor my love. However, Connery wasn’t such a traditional guy, so perhaps he is up there smiling down on my new look.

 

            Levi stayed with us and had supper and I told the boys all about my trip.   They were fascinated that I ate in a real pirate ship and deiced that someday they would take a trip to BB and see that in person. 

            After dinner I asked Kenyon and Levi to join me outside. Violet had given me a beautiful bench in front of the house and I decided that the new Starr Bright family tradition would be to have a good-bye picture taken before any of my children move out. Kenyon did a great job at capturing the moment and it was finally time to bid my 2nd adopted son good-bye.

            “Mom, I want to thank you for what you have done for me. If you wouldn’t have adopted…”

            I cut him off, “Baby, you are my son and it doesn’t matter how you came to me. I love you and there is no need to thank me. You go off and do great things in this world, okay?” I cupped his cheeks with my hands and kissed him squarely on the forehead. 

            As he left tears leaked from my eyes. I really hated the leaving part of this challenge, but I guess every child leaves at some point to make their own way in this world.

           

 

                The first night at in my new house in my new house was a strange one. The house seemed empty with only me and the three Grinch boys and I had the strangest dream. At least I think it was a dream.

            I dreamed the Connery came to me. He wasn’t in a corporeal state, but in a ghostly one. He told me he was proud that I was going to finish my challenge and that I needed to find a new dad soon. 

            It was very strange to say the least.



 

 

 

            After Levi let it didn’t take long for the Grinch Triplets to fall into a routine. I spent as much time with them as I could before and after school and on the weekends. 

 

 

 


 

 

            A few weeks after I returned from my trip Derrick’s father, Asher Lemi, came to pay his respects to Connery and to see how I was holding up. He is such a great friend and I am grateful that he and I share such a wonderful son together. 

            We had a terrific time together catching up, laughing about old times and even mourning over Connery. His visit was very short, but I was so glad he was able to make it.

 

 

 

            Then the unexpected happened. A man showed up at my door and asked to be part of my challenge. I should have expected this, because I didn’t announce that I was quitting my challenge and I vowed to continue, but I was thrown off by his request.

            He seemed to sense that I was uncomfortable and proceeded to introduce himself.

            “Let me start this over. My name is Gabriel Holy and I am an angel from Sim heaven. I have been watching you since you were a little girl, I am your assigned guardian angel, and I admire your decision to do the 100 baby challenge to honor your missing cousin. Watching you and Connery and the love you shared and lost made me want to help you continue your challenge. I was granted a pass and now I am here imploring you to allow me in your challenge.”

            My jaw dropped. This man was telling me he was an angel, but not just any angel my guardian angel. I didn’t want to believe it, but something about him was very familiar and something about him told me he was telling the truth. 

            “Well… err….” I stammered not knowing what to say.

            “I can tell you aren’t completely ready so how about a stay a few days and we go from there?”

            Again I felt I could trust this man and I agreed to let him stay for a few days.

 

            My Kenyon is a very strange boy, but I think that is one of the best things about him. He marches to the beat of his own drum and despite his grumpiness that he got from his father; he seems to be a very happy boy.

            Days went by and Gabriel was such a caring loving man in the household. Don’t get me wrong he wasn’t Connery but his presence made a person feel relaxed and at ease. I am sure it is his angel nature or something.


 

 

            I have to admit that I was very attracted to Gabriel and I found myself acting like a little school girl around him. I even snuck in and took his picture while he was in the shower. WHO DOES THAT??!!?? 

            When he caught me in the act he didn’t get mad or upset he simply looked at me with the sweetest expression on his face and then winked at me. I slowly crept out of the bathroom. 


 

 

            It had been just over a week since Gabriel came to stay with us and the boys were all out for the evening visiting friends. I decided to relax in the hot tub and was surprised that Gabriel deiced to join me. The whole time he had been there he hadn’t tried to kiss me, come on to me or even brought up my challenge, but now he was in the hot tub with me. I stiffened up and at first I wouldn’t look at him. It was hard to feel intimacy to anyone other than Connery.

            He turned to me and said, “Ashby, my time is running short. I hate to do this, I wanted you to come around on your own, but I really want to be part of your challenge.”

I tensed up even more for I feared that he was going to force himself on me but he did no such thing. He just sat back and closed his eyes enjoying the relaxing hum of the hot tub. I was confused by what he had said to me and I started to relax. Then I got too relaxed. I am not sure if it was the bubbles from the hot tub or if Gabriel used his angel charms on me, but I started to giggle and then next think I knew I was making the first move and soon baby 14 was conceived.

After the hot tub he picked me up and carried me upstairs where we fell asleep in each other’s arms. He held me so close and I felt safe and protected. When the sun rose the next morning Gabriel was gone and the only things he left behind was a single white feather and his unborn child.

 

I love it when my children come to visit me. Harmony came for a visit and I was able to share with her the good news of baby number 14. I hadn’t even told the Grinch Triplets yet, but I thought it was very fitting that my first born be told first.

 

            I didn’t have morning sickness, thank God, with this pregnancy but I did find myself reacting to anything I ate, and it wasn’t a good reaction. Now I am worried that angel children may need special food like vampire children do. No one told me how to raise an angel child. Will I do an okay job? 

            Except for the reaction to food my pregnancy went well. When the day came to have my precious little one I decided a home birth was the best way to go.

 

            The pain was intense this time and the labor lasted a lot longer then I was used to but in the end I delivered two healthy, I know they were healthy because both Xerxes (Harmony’s oldest) and my Harmony was visiting and they both work for the hospital, baby boys. 

 

 

 

            Welcome Newbie Starr Bright to our family.

 

 

            And Quinn Starr Bright.

            I named the boys after Violet Newbie and Christy Quinn. I wanted to remember that these two women were part of the reason I continued my challenge. They were great friends and they cared for me, as I them, deeply.

            Having a home delivery didn’t stop the rumors from flying around town. The whispers of me having children out of wedlock began circulating and those I was use to but the whispers about how quickly I moved on from Connery and how having a child with another man so soon was considered unfaithful even though he was gone ripped my heart out of my chest. People don’t think before they talk and they don’t understand how hurtful they can be. However, as always I held my head up high and wadded through the gossip with class and poise.


 

 

            Days after the angel twins were born I was taking the recycling out and through the window of the nursery I saw the most unexpected sight. I saw my middle Grinch son showing great interest in tending to the needs of the twins.

            Luckily I had my camera in my pocket and I was able to snap a picture of him and Quinn through the window. I rushed inside and when I got to the nursery he was already tending to little Newbie. 

            This sight surely warmed my heart and perhaps Kemper won’t be so closed off like his father……

Ashby Starr – Life’s ups and Downs

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

LIFE’S UPS AND DOWNS

***My story contains some adult situations and implications of sex. So if you are 16 years or younger please make sure your parent knows you are reading… I would be a bit bummed if I got some nasty hate mail from a parent***

            I know it has been a while since my last post and I did leave you abruptly when I had a visitor knocking on my door so very late at night.

            Since my visitor arrived the Starr family has been turned upside down. We have had many good times and some very bad times. I have to let you know before I continue that my heart is very heavy in sadness. I will do my best to let you all know what has been happening without missing a detail, but it is hard for me to continue to relive my pain.

            So let’s first start with showing off my new look:


 

 

            I figured with the holidays around the corner having the family add green and red to their wardrobe would be fun. I really have to get use to this “mom” look and my new shorter hair. 

 

            So I am sure you are wondering who showed up at my door at such a late hour. Well, gosh it is so hard for me even to write his name and to think about him is just that much harder, the person at my door that night was Connery Bright.

            “Who?” You may be asking yourself and how I am going to reply is probably pretty puzzling as well. 

            Connery Bright is the love of my life. I know some of you are wide eyed right now and my sisters-in-arms such as, Violet Newbie, Christy Quinn, The Wriner gal’s and the other challenge mother’s who have been doing their best to provide me strength during this time are sitting in their chairs shaking their heads sadly. 

            I am not sure how many of you remember in my last post how I expressed that my heart wasn’t in my challenge anymore. I said I didn’t know what the cause of that was, but deep in my heart I really did know the answer to that and when Connery showed up on my door step professing his love my heart rejoiced because I finally knew it was okay to follow it for once. 

            Connery and I met in Sun Set Valley, TX while I was there visiting for Violet Newbie’s birthday. 

(You can read her blog here: http://asimsstory2010.blogspot.com/2010/09/getting-started-101-babies-challenge.html )

            Yes that weekend I ended up conceiving my son Derrick with Asher, Connery’s roommate, but for some reason Connery and I really hit it off and before I left we exchanged phone numbers and email address. Ever since that weekend we have been keeping in touch and he has been one of my rocks in this challenge.   He as well as Asher and of course Derrick has kept me in the loop of Derrick’s life. He truly has been a Godsend.

            Seeing him for the first time in years, well outside of pictures sent through the computer, my heart melted. He is a bit older than me, but looking into his kind eyes our age difference melts away. It only took him blurting out that he loved me for me to pull him through the doorway and embrace him. I began crying and muttering that I loved him too and I had always loved him. 

            He lifted me off the ground and carried me up the stairs, luckily he found my bedroom and not one of the kids room. Now I am well versed in the affairs of the bedroom, what challenge mom isn’t, but that night was nothing like I had ever experienced and my womanhood was rocked to the core.  

            Afterwards we just spent time cuddling and talking about everything. I was amazed that my three needy Grinch triplets slept all night for me. It was the first time they did it and the last. I told Connery that I was not going to take no for an answer and that he was going to move in with me. He didn’t really reply to that but he didn’t argue either. I felt so content lying in his arms drinking in his manliness.

            It was the first time, well except for my weekend with Asher that I was lying with a man because he just wanted to be with me and not to partake in my challenge. It was beautiful and I felt I could live the rest of my life like this. Not once did my challenge enter my mind. Is that selfish? I don’t really know but I do know that I was happy and a happy mom brings happy children, right?

            The next day we hired a babysitter for the Grinch Triplets and after Levi, Ash and Elvira left for school we headed off for a picnic. The day was gorgeous and the fragrance of nature was twice as powerful to me. I have heard that things like that happen when you are in love.


 

 

            Our day was lovely but as it began to wind down he dropped the biggest bomb on me. It was more like a nuclear warhead.   What he told me crushed me.

            “Ashby, I need to tell you something.” – Connery

            I turned to him and took his hand, “What is it?” I smiled at him sweetly.

            He removed his hand and looked down at the picnic blanket we were sitting on. “I am afraid to tell you. I believe it will make you retract your request for me to move in with you and I want to be with you more than anything, but you need to know everything.”

            His tone was sullen and I got really scared. Like the Meatloaf song, what if he was going to tell me that he wants me and needs me but he could never really love me. I know these thoughts were a contradiction of the events from the night before, but I couldn’t help thinking them.

            He picked up a blade of grass and moved it around with his fingers. He wouldn’t look at me and it took him a long time before he spoke again.

            “Babe, I am not healthy.” 

            I giggled not understanding the severity of what he was saying. He, even for someone his age, was built and very well in shape. “Well if you don’t think you are in shape like you want to be, I would be willing to work out with you.” 

            “No Ashby, you don’t understand. I am sick. I have been diagnosed with cancer and the doctors say that we caught it too late and there isn’t anything for them to do.” He threw the grass down.

            I didn’t know what to say. I just gave him this blank look. After what seemed like an eternity I took his chin into my hand and turned his face to meet mine. “Are you kidding me?” 

            I know it seems like a lame response to something so serious, but I think I was in shock.

            He removed my hand from his face and began to rub the back of it. “Honey, I would never kid you about something like this.” 

            “It’s not fair. We just finally followed our hearts to be with each other.” My voice cracked with every word and tears threatened to show themselves.

            “I know, but being with you for one day would be worth it. I hope you feel the same way.” 

            I didn’t know what to say so I excused myself. I had to think. I had to completely understand what was going on.


 

 

            Once I knew I was out of his range of sight and hearing I allowed myself to break down. I cried and screamed and cursed my maker for allowing this to happen. I wanted to hit something. I wanted to… I wanted to… I didn’t know what I wanted to do other then cry.

 

            Then his words rang in my head, “Being with you just one day is worth it. I hope you feel the same.” 

            I wiped my eyes and realized that I did feel the same way. Since Harmony disappeared I had been living my life for her dream, the challenge, and her followers, but being with Connery would be my dream and if it was for only one day then so be it. I headed back to him.

            He was still sitting on the blanket and the expression on his face was that of fear. Was it fear if dying or loosing me? I wasn’t sure, but there was no need for the latter.

            I leaned down and kissed him on the forehead. “You are worth one day or a million days. I love you Connery Bright.” 

            The expression on his face after I said that was the best sight I have ever seen in my young life. I knew my life with him was going to be amazing. 

 

            Then we walked down by the beach until the sunset.

            The next day Connery and I got into our first “fight”. The thought of it makes me giggle, despite my grief,   because it was just a very silly one. We had decided it was time to age up the Grinch Triplets so the task of teaching them their skills could be started, but Connery was worried that he living with me it would be a violation to the rules of the challenge. I told him that I was going to quit the challenge and he told me that I wasn’t. We argued and finally I was able to convince him that he could help me with the triplet’s skills and the matter of my challenge was just dropped.

                I had some really cute pictures of Connery helping the boys with his skills, but little Kenyon was working a project for school (as a child) and accidently deleted half of my pictures and for some reason we were not able to retrieve them. 

            A few days later it was time for Levi to age into a teen. He opted not to have a big party but did go to the beach to have a bonfire with some of his class mates. Elvira and Ash were kind enough to chaperone since he didn’t want his mom to cramp his style. Sometimes kids say the darndest things.


 

 

            This is what my baby boy looked like when he came back from the bonfire the next day. He is such a lovely, kind, quite teenage and I am blessed that he became part of the Starr family.

            The Grinch triplets learned their skills quickly, and why shouldn’t they have with three teens, and two adults in the house to keep them at it? And what seemed liked days after they aged into tot’s it was time to age them into children.

            Days after the triplets started school Connery surprised me with a trip to France. He told me that he wanted to see where I grew up. He wanted to know everything about me before our time together was up. 

            I think I was denial because every time he brought up his illness or the fact that he was going to die I would ignore it and pretend that he hadn’t said anything.



 

 

 

            We stayed at my childhood home and spent a lot of time at the nectar and just being together, being adults. It was the most amazing trip of my life.

 

            We took long walks. During these walks we held hands, kissed, hugged and talked. We talked about our dreams, we talked about my kids and how much he loved kids, and we talked about our pasts. 

            I knew that Connery had been married right out of high school, but I never knew the whole story. He told me that he and his wife Susan were high school sweethearts, but since she was small she had a poor constitution. She was always sick and after a while Connery felt more like her protector and care giver then her boyfriend, but he also loved her and stayed by her side. After they graduated it was expected that they got married and so they had a small ceremony at the court house with just family. Soon after they were married Susan became bed ridden. The doctors really didn’t understand what was wrong with her, but six months after they were married she passed peacefully in her sleep. His story made me love him more and I felt sorry that he should have to endure so much at such a young age.


 

 

            Connery knows me so well and booked us an adventure to go on. We had the best time. I loved exploring and wondering if danger was around the corner.

            Now tell me, does this look like a man who is sick?



 

 

 

            Our last day in France he asked me the most unexpected question and of course I said yes, I was on cloud nine and we made a plan to be wed on Christmas Eve. France holds so many wonderful memories for me. It is the place where I was molded into the woman I am today and it is where my biggest dream came true, but it is also the place where I got caught up with happiness and wouldn’t let reality set in.

            When we got back we quickly began planning, Christmas Eve was just around the corner and we feared that people wouldn’t be able to rearrange their schedules to attend. We decided on a small, well relatively small, wedding. We invited my kids, including my son Derrick who lives in Sunset Valley, Violet Newbie, and my parents and since Connery didn’t have any family left and Joe and Asher were unable to make it he invited his friend Christy Quinn to attend. 

             As a teen Christy took care of Connery’s wife before she passed. While he went to work Christy would come over and take Susan her meals, read to her, talk to her and help her with her medication. After Susan’s death he and Christy kept in contact and he really wanted her to attend. He told me it could be the last time he got to see her. I quickly disregarded what he said and we wrote her an invitation. 

            Two days before the wedding Elvira approached me and asked if she and Ash could age into young adults. I have to admit I wasn’t ready for my little, well not so little, Vampire twins to leave the nest. She proceeded to explain that she and Lars Newbie have been talking, texting, and emailing and Lars has asked her to go steady. Of course she told Lars yes, but now that he is a young adult he has told her he is moving to Twinbrook, he is and Laytin are arriving when Vi comes for the wedding, and he wants Elvira to move in with them. 

            While she was trying to convince me Ash joined her. He told me that he had a huge crush on Plum Tree and he needed to age up so that he could profess his love for her before she decided to marry her boyfriend Cooper Cupid.

            How does a mother refuse the argument of her children’s happiness? I finally agreed but made them promise that they couldn’t move out of the house until after the wedding. They agreed happily and they didn’t waste any time nor did they want a party and they aged up.

Finally the big day had arrived and I was both nervous and excited. 

 

            Because it was Christmas Eve I decided to keep my festive hair color and we went with red and green color scheme. 

 

            My maid of honor and best friend Violet Newbie was the first one to arrive. She looked stunning and I was so glad that she could be here with me on this day. Her boys Lars and Laytin were with her, but the two of them as well as Elvira and Ash had to stay in the house during the ceremony because now that they are young adult vampires the sun hurts them.

 

            As the other guests arrived I took some time to talk to Pastor Pratt. He reminded me that life is short and that we as sims need to take life as it comes and treasure the small things.

 

            Before the ceremony started Connery introduced me to his dear friend Christy Quinn. We talked for a while and I found out that she is another challenge mom in Sunset Valley and she and Vi have already become great friends. We hit it off and I feel that she is going to be another treasured friend.

 

            The ceremony was beautiful. We professed our love for one another and finally we were Mr. and Mrs. Bright. I took Starr Bright as my last name.


 

 

            Then it was time to party and share this special time with our friends and family. I was so glad that Derrick was able to attend. He was going to age into a young adult when he got home and I feel like I have missed so much of his life. After our dance together he pulled me into a hug and told me that he was glad I was his mom. This brought a tear to my eye. He is such a good boy.

 

            As the day turned to evening and the guests were eating Ash and I presented our wedding gift to Connery. Ash played beautifully as I sang Connery our song:

At Last By Etta James

At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last

The guests clapped and was in awe and I saw Connery wipe away a tear. This day couldn’t get any better.

            After we ate we opened the gifts and many of my children couldn’t make it they all pooled their money and has these made for me:




 

 

 

 

            The note attached was written by my eldest Harmony and she apologized that Derrick wasn’t included.   They just couldn’t work it out for him to come to the professional photo shoot. 

            I did miss that my non-challenge child was missing from this wonderful gift, but I understood. 

 

            As the evening wound down we decided to gather around the Christmas tree and sing a Christmas carol, but that was disrupted by this guy. The Grim Reaper showed up to remind Connery of their deal.

            I was mortified…I had no knowledge of a deal Connery had made with death. After all the guests left and we were settling down for the night I made my new husband tell me what he had done. 

            He explained that Grim had already come for him, but he desperately needed to tell me how he felt and if I felt the same way to have just a little time with me. Grim took pity on him, and agreed, but with a condition of his own. He made Connery promise to make me promise that I would not give him a death flower nor would I use ambrosia to bring him back. How could he make such a deal? I was very confused that night when I fell asleep, but even after seeing Death at our doorstep and hearing the deal that was made I was still in denial about Connery’s condition and agreed upon the terms.

 

            The day after the wedding my vamp twins followed their hearts. Ash had called Plum Tree the day of the wedding and told her that he was in love with her and had been since he was a little boy. She didn’t have much to say, and I could tell it hurt my boy even if he wouldn’t admit it. Having the evil and mean spirited traits makes for a tough skinned Sim. 

            What he didn’t know is that the next day Plum broke up with Cooper and she rushed over to the house. She confessed her love for Ash, despite their age difference. That evening Ash, Elvira, Plum, Lars and Laytin moved into a house down the road from us. I missed them as soon as they left.


 

 

            It didn’t take long for our household to go back into routine. The kids had didn’t have school for the holiday break so it was a bit more chaotic. The week between Christmas and New Years went quickly.

            Levi told me he was thinking of becoming a chef when he was ready to leave the house, but he hadn’t made up his mind for sure yet. I love spending time with my children. I gave him an encouraging hug and told him I would support him with whatever he decides to do.

 

            Before I knew it, it was New Years Eve. We decided to have a small party and invited Christy, Vi and Derrick over. It was their last night in Twinbrook and thought it would be nice to spend it with them.

            The party was wonderful. Good food, good friends and children have a grand time. Kenyon even ran out, before bed, in his underwear to dance to his favorite song. I couldn’t help but let him do it. I try not to have any favorite children, but Kenyon does hold a special place in my heart. Perhaps it is because he has the insane trait, I don’t know, but he makes me laugh on a daily basis. Even today with my heart broken he can make me chuckle.

            After everyone left for the night Connery and I decided to have some time together and dancing was one of my favorite past time. We only got through one song when he excused himself and said he was tired and needed to go lie down.

 

            He stroked my cheek, whispered in my ear that he loved me and that he would always love me, kissed me good night and headed up to bed. I wish I had known what those moments were. I think I would do something different, but I still have no idea what.

            I was feeling antsy and far from tired so I decided that perhaps a job down the block would help me get sleepy. When I came back from my jog my whole world flipped upside down!!

 

            The sight I walked into was devastating. My son, my baby, Kemper, was standing over Connery’s body. Connery had collapsed on the floor and he wasn’t moving.

            “Mama, I found him like this.” 

            Tears were filling Kemper’s eyes. The sight traumatized me on two levels. 1) How was it that my baby had to experience death at such a young age and like this?

2) How was it that the love of my life was laying so still on the floor?

            When I looked away from Kemper and Connery I saw The Grim Reaper begin to appear. I couldn’t believe it. All of my denial began to well up inside me and I lost it. I remembered what I agreed to and I couldn’t bear that I had made that promise. I have never cried so hard in my whole life, not even when Harmony went missing.

            Grim didn’t hang around long and my family was just left in despair. 

 

            The funeral was small and intimate, just a gathering of the people who knew and loved Connery. The hugs and the I’m sorry’s were getting overwhelming and I had to get away. I found myself in the laundry room mourning my loss. However, Violet Newbie knows me very well and found me and encouraged me to come out and allow those who loved Connery to talk about him and remember him.

            My dad was there to give me comfort. Mom wasn’t able to make it. Hearing about Connery’s death troubled her to the point of sickness and she was at home in bed. 

            Kenyon, my little insane boy, was all but insane on that day. He hugged me and when I couldn’t help but express my anger about the death taking Connery he told me that was in Sim heaven and that he was looking down on us, still taking care of use.  

            I swear children know how to pull on a person’s heartstrings without trying.

            It has been two days since Connery’s funeral and I find myself, for the first time since before I got married, sitting in front of my computer pouring my heart to my fellow challenge mom’s and readers of my blog.

            I had intended to log on tell you my new and then to announce I was going to quit the challenge, but it appears that my husband had other plans.

            When I logged in there was a flashing icon that said: Ashby, read me: I clicked in and I find a letter from Connery. It said:

                        My dearest,

                                    I know you better then you know yourself and I know you are thinking of ending your challenge, but I think that would be a big mistake. Part of the reason I fell in love with you is because how you are changing the world with your unique and inspiring children. You need to keep that up. 

                                    Do this knowing that I approve and even though I can’t physically be with you I am still with you. I am there whispering in your ear every day encouraging you to find the next dad or spending more time with your kids.

                                    Ash, you are the strongest person I know and I know you are going to make it through it.

                                    Please remember I love you and even though we only had a couple of weeks together it was the best time of my life. I am glad I was able to have that time.

                                    I have another surprise for you. I recruited Violet Newbie and we made you a video that I hopes reminds you of why you do the challenge. Please log on to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plqFb2Aiwy4

 

            Love always and forever you husband

            Connery

 

***readers I couldn’t figure how to upload the video to Livejournal please go to the above link and view the video Connery made for Ashby***

 

            After watching this video I, Ashby Starr Bright, have made a solemn vow to Connery that I will continue my challenge. 

            About an hour before I started writing this update I got a call from Christy Quinn telling me that she, myself and Vi are going on a trip in two weeks. It is something that she and Connery had been planning for me. He knew that I would need some time away and who better to go with then two gals who could make me feel better.

            I am looking forward to sometime way. Elvira and Ash have agreed to take care of the Grinch triplets and Levi can “take care” of himself. 

            Well until next time reader: Ashby.

 

            Stay tuned for next time:

                        How will Ashby, Christy and Vi’s trip to Barnacle Bay go?

                        Who will be the next daddy in Ashby’s challenge?

                        How will she feel continuing her challenge after being married and loosing that love?

****Thank you so much for reading my blog. A lot of time and effort goes into it and I am just glad I can share it with all of you. I really do appreciate you all!!  I would love to hear what you think of Ashby’s life. ****

Ashby Starr – Levi & Babies 11,12 and 13

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

LEVI STARR AND BABIES 11,12 & 13
**REMEMBER THERE IS ADULT CONTENT IN THIS**
IF YOU ARE UNDER 16 MAKE SURE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO READ!

 

Here is my new look? What do you all think? Sheik, old fashioned, perfect? Haha… I think I like it and I really love my hair this way. 

Well life at the Starr’s has been kind of mundane, the same ole’ routine day after day. I am not complaining, well perhaps I am a bit. For an adventurous Sim like me days, weeks, moths or heaven forbid years like this can put us in a rut, a bad mood. I am doing my best not to take my mood out on my kids, but I think they sense something is up. My trip to Bridgeport with Vi Newbie both helped my mood and soured it. It reminded me of what adventures I was missing but at the same time gave me the much needed break from everyday life.

It wasn’t long after the Vampire twins were brought home that it was time to age them into toddlers so that we could get them started in learning their skills. I have to admit that vampire toddlers are much harder than other toddlers. 

 

Ash Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3370525

Elvira Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3370521

Perhaps I am just tired, I don’t know, but the kids are learning their skills very slowly. Even with the help of their older sisters.

Ash is the only boy in the house right now and I have to tell you he is getting spoiled rotten. I wonder if that is why he is being stubborn about learning his skills. His big sisters do everything for him.

 

Sunshine has taken up the piano and she hopes to someday follow in her dad’s footsteps and become a rock star.

It was almost time for the Rock-Star triplets to age into Young Adults, but they asked me if we could hold off on that for just a little bit. They found a Sims Pageant, the Ms. Sim 2010 Pageant, they wanted to enter. Well I should be more specific, Simi and Stella wanted to enter but Sunshine really wasn’t that interested, but she had agreed to do so because her sisters really wanted this to be a triplet boding experience.

I agreed and they were off to the store for new clothes. They wanted my help taking the pictures so I took a headshot of each as well as one of them in their formal wear and their everyday wear. Stella had the hardest time choosing which pictures to use, but when all was decided they set out to drop off their application and participate in the interview. 

I wanted to share their entries but something happened with my computer and those pictures have been deleted. Ugh…stupid computers.

When they got back they told me all about their time away. The three, correction, the two off them (Simi and Stella) were talking a mile minute. Telling me how nice everyone was and that they ran into Violet Newbie and were introduced to her daughter-in-law Raven Newbie. Sunshine seemed distant and distracted. 

When I asked her what was wrong she told me that nothing was wrong, but she had a weird feeling about Vi Newbie’s daughter-in-Law Raven. I asked her to explain and she really couldn’t. She told me that the girl was very nice and she enjoyed talking to her, but there was something about her that was nagging at her. She didn’t know what or why but the feeling was very prominent.  

She then presented me with a picture of the girl.

 

When I asked her where she got it she told me that she had swiped it from the pageant. I was furious at first that one of my children stole something but when I looked at the girl in the photo I too got a weird sensation about her and that something about her seemed “familiar”. 

Her skin tone was unique, even for a Sim, but it was her eyes that spoke to me the most. They had a kindness that I have seen before, but I just couldn’t place where. 

It was time for the Triplets to age into Young Adults and I couldn’t be prouder of them.

Stella Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420180

Sunshine Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420163

Simi Starr: Once she aged up she was on the computer getting a job with the police force… She wanted to be a super spy.

Stella Starr: She is going to be a great creator of monsters some day. They accepted her in the science career as soon as she made the call.

Sunshine Starr: She is going to follow in her daddies footsteps and become a rock star. She ran out and got a job in the music profession. 

Then my girls were gone and I miss them terribly, but I am very excited to see how they change the Sim world.

 

During their party the Paparazzi showed up taking pictures and watching every move my kids made. I am not sure I like the fact that my town has decided I am a celebrity.  

Once the Rock-Star Girls were moved out and we rested from their party it was time to age up Jury and Journey into teens.

Journey Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420186

The following Monday when the girls were at school I finished teaching the vampire twins their skills and decided it was time to age them into children. I know it sounds a bit selfish, but I just needed a little time from kids who needed all my attention. After a breather I knew I would be ready to have the next baby/babies.


 

 

Ash Starr Child: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443024

Elvira Starr Child: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443028

While the kids were in school I kept myself busy with my garden and other activities that I had neglected because my children always come first, but I couldn’t get Raven Newbie out of my head. I decided that I would call Vi and ask if she and her youngest at home, Lars and Laytin, wanted to come for a visit. Since the drive is long we decided to make it an overnight visit.

Before Vi and her boys came to visit I got a call from the social worker and they had another little boy that needed to be adopted. He was at the toddler age and his name is Levi.

 

Levi Starr Toddler: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443026

I told her to bring him to me straight away and soon I was the mother to this sweet little boy.

 

The first time I took Levi to the park paparazzi showed taking pictures. Do I really want this kind of life for my children?

 

 

Lars and Elvira

 

Laytin and Elvira

 

Violet, Lars and Laytin arrived the following Saturday and I was so happy to see my good friend and her beautiful children. Her twins are vampire twins just like Ash and Elvira are. I knew that these four children would get along well and I was right. 

 

While the children played Vi and I took some time to catch up. I told her about Emmett being found and that we (Harmony’s family) were still at a loss as to what happened to Harmony. I showed her this post card I received from Ivy Wakefiled’s sister telling me that Ivy went to China with some of her younger children and they too were missing. I don’t know if this is a coincidence or what is happening. 

Vi told me that she has heard a rumor that Ivy Wakefield had gone missing, but the rumors she was hearing is that she may have met a man in China, but no one really knew the truth. 

I really do hope that is the case and another Challenge mother hasn’t been hurt or taken.

I then told her about Sunshine stealing the picture of Raven and how we both thought that there was something very familiar about her.

She then took some pictures of Miles’ family out and showed them to me:

 

Miles, Raven, Caplin and Fairlight Newbie

Miles Newbie was created by ELMSims3. You can download him here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3268782

 

 She told me about her daughter-in-law:

 

                        Raven and her brother Kale were found on the door steps of an Orphanage in Egypt when they were children. Both of them had no memory of who they were, where they had been, who their family was, nothing. The nuns at the Orphanage are the ones that started to call them Raven and Kale and about a year later a nice family, the Bishop family, wanted to adopt them. 

                        Raven and Miles met in Egypt when he was there for work and it was love at first sight. When it was time for Miles to move to his next job he was reluctant to go because he couldn’t bear to leave Raven. He hastily ran out and bought a ring, but it paid off when she accepted his ring and replied with “What took you so long?” They were quickly married after that in an intimate wedding. 

                        When the wedding was over Miles was suppose to be off to his next assignment, but he knew that Raven was a bit worried about moving around so he quit his job and decided wherever Raven goes he was there too. They decided to move to Sunset Valley to be closer to his family and oddly enough her brother Kale and his wife moved to Sunset Valley. 

                        The lovely couple now has two beautiful children, Caplin and Fairlight and the only thing that seems to be wrong with their marriage is that fact that Raven is afraid of intimacy. It seems now that the romance of a new relationship has calmed down and they are settled into a family routine Raven doesn’t want to get intimate with Miles unless they are trying for another child. She is even timid about holding his hand and having him drape his arms on her shoulders. Miles has been confiding in his mom with this and he also told her that Raven is in therapy, her choice, for this. She has been under hypnosis a few times and whatever happened to her before she was “found” is what caused her anxiety. 

            The two of them love each other and they are going to work through this, but she is frustrated that she can’t remember what happened to her and he is frustrated that he can’t help her.

Everyone had a wonderful visit and just as fast as our get together started it ended, this was a sad thing all around. It seems that the vampire children really bonded and they didn’t want to leave each other. Again I find myself having to clarify; Elvira and Violet’s two boys have bonded.  Ash, which got the evil gene tended to torment the other two boys and they aren’t that fond of him. I think Ash prefers it that way, but it does break a mother’s heart to see her child isolated on his own free will.

Our families bid each other a farewell with promises of future visits and Vi promised that she would call as soon as they got home.

I have a feeling that something more was formed while the Newbie’s and the Starr’s were together because not more than five minutes after Violet pulled out of the driveway Elvira got a text and as she read it giggling she quickly left the room. I decided not to address this now for it can’t be more than a little crush, right?

I had the picture of Raven Newbie and I just couldn’t get the fact that her past, as Violet had told me, is so vague and that she just looked familiar to me out of my mind. The only other person I knew that had the same color skin as she did was Mr. Green. With picture in hand I decided to visit him.

 

We had a great catch up session and when I showed him the picture of Raven his breath caught into his throat, the pictures fluttered from his hands and he muttered the name, “Diamond.”

Me: “What are you saying?”

Mr. Green: “That is my little girl Diamond Storm. I’m sure of it.” 

Me: “How can you be so sure?” But I knew how he could be sure. Just as I was sure I had seen the kindness in those eyes before. That look in the picture was a look Harmony had given in so many of her pictures. As soon as he has said her name I had felt in my heart that he was right.

Mr. Green:  “Ashby, don’t tell me she doesn’t look familiar. She has her mother’s expression and my skin and eyes. This is my daughter. Do you know where I can find her?” 

I gave him all the information I knew and he quickly excused himself with a promise that he would let me know the outcome. 

When I got home I had the feeling of thankfulness. I was thankful that I knew where all my children were and that they were safe. I couldn’t imagine being in Mr. Green’s position. His children; Diamond, Onyx and Steel, had disappeared years ago along with their mother. There had been no word about any of them or from any of them, and now to think that one of them was alive with a family of their own and you had no participation with your grandkids and your child’s life. I felt like crying; crying for Harmony, for her children and for the father’s of the missing children; Mr. Green and Lady Guy and even for Malakai Rose. Even though he has found his son he missed out on so much and Emmett doesn’t remember anything that has happened to him or who he is really. He doesn’t remember his mother or his missing siblings and even though the siblings that are left in Twinbrook have gone to visit him he doesn’t remember them and to me that is heartbreaking. 

I didn’t want to break down in front of my kids so I locked myself in the den and logged onto the computer. I pulled up my email and immediately a smile broke out on my face. I had an email from someone who could always make me feel better. The thankfulness overtook me again and I was thankful for him, my children and this challenge. I was getting ready to reply to his kind words when I got an instant message from him. We spent the next couple of hours chatting and then Levi needed me. I bid my friend farewell and with a smile that wouldn’t quit I climbed the stairs to my little boy.

 

I have noticed that Elvira has been on the computer more and more and she told me that she, Lars and Laytin have all become best friend’s and she loved having other Vampire children as friends. She even let it slip that she was going to marry one of them someday. I think it is cute, but Vi and I have talked about it and we are both a little concerned with the increased disagreements between her boys in regards to Elvira, but they are still children we decided to keep an eye on it, but it is still too early to really address something like this.

While chatting with my girls (the other challenge mom’s) and playing around on facebook I found a few Holiday pageants to enter. 

 

The holidays are right around the corner and we as a family thought it would be fun to enter. We got busy and got a tree and decorated it. 

Jury took this picture of me…she is trying her hand out in photography. 


 

 

Well here are our entries. I am still working on figuring out the editing, but I am sure I will eventually get it.

 

After we took our pictures for the completion I made so dinner. I am getting pretty good at this cooking thing.

I left the fire place going overnight and it got so hot that a fire started. My brave Journey and I were able to put it out and no one got hurt. Thank goodness.

Then the routine of life started over again.

Before I knew it Levi had learned all of his skills and was ready to age into a child. We opted for a quite private party.

What lovely violet eyes he has and such flawless skin. What a handsome boy he turned out to be.

A couple of days later Jury and Journey were ready to age into Young Adults and move out on their own.

 

 

They didn’t want a big party either but they both wanted their dad there. Journey and he are already close, but for some reason Jury and he are not so it touched my heart to take this picture.

The day after they moved out Ash and Elvira were ready to be teens. They wanted a big party and Ash insisted that I put Plum Tree on the guest list. I am not sure what that is all about but I knew that he had taken a shine to her at my last pool party.

The party was epic and my Vampire twins are so very beautiful and special. 

 
 

Ash Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470950

Elvira Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470949

The two of them quickly got into a routine and after school Elvira was normally found on the phone with one of the Newbie boys and Ash was over at the Tree residence visiting Plum.

With only three children in the house now and all three of them in school during the day I decided that it was time to find the next dad to the challenge. It was difficult jumping back into my challenge because for some reason my heart wasn’t in it anymore. I couldn’t explain for sure what the change was, but also I am not a Sim who just gives up on a whim.

I decided that it was time for Froggie Lilpad to be called up. He had been waiting patiently for me and it was his turn. I called him up and he agreed eagerly to come over after work. It was pretty late when he arrived but I had a nice little surprise waiting for him. I had bought new lingerie especially for him and I had set the mood out by the hot tub. 

 

We took some time for a little chatting. I asked him how his day was and he asked me about my family. Then he asked the unexpected. He just simply asked for a first kiss. He was so cute so I obliged and then we got into the hot tub. 

Our time was fun and relaxing but when it was time for the making of baby 11 he promptly got out of the hot tub and told me that he couldn’t do this after all and headed for home.

I just sat there in puzzlement. After all this time he just bails, he chickens out? I just didn’t understand.

A few days later I had an unexpected visitor, it was the Grinch. He barged into my home without even being asked to come in. He started talking a mile a minute and what he said floored me.

 

The Grinch was created by BUTTONSGINGER and you can download him here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3345331

Grinch: “Ashby Starr, I am here to ask you a favor. I know I am not known to seek out the help of others and frankly I don’t even want to be here, but my time here is not going to last forever and I have decided that I would like an heir to take over my Grouchiness when I am gone.   I don’t relish the idea of making this heir, but I have decided that you would be my best option to have this heir. I can have a child with you and not have to see you again ever and you would raise that child until it is ready to take over my reign. So what say you Ashby Starr?”

I am sure my jaw was on the floor. When I was finally able to talk I asked a question that I don’t think he was expecting. “What if he or she gets the good trait and they don’t want to take over your Grouchiness?” 

He crossed his green arms over his chest and stuck out his chin at me. “I guess we will cross that bridge if it comes up. So what say you Ashby Starr, are you in or out?” 

Despite his nasty tone I decided that I would take him up on his offer. Christmas was approaching fast and the Grinch was a very popular Christmas character. It would be fun to have baby/babies of this nature in the house around Christmas time, because even though he didn’t like it as an adult the Grinch did love Christmas as a youth. 

 

There were no formalities with the Grinch, my children were at school, we went right up to my bedroom and soon the room was filled with the lullaby. He left quickly after that mutter how disgusting I was. 

 

So now I am pregnant with the Grinch’s child/children and I want to take some time to tie up some loose ends. I need to let you all know what happened while I was in Sunset Valley for Violet Newbie’s Birthday party (her blog can be found here: http://asimsstory2010.blogspot.com/2010/09/getting-started-101-babies-challenge.html ).

While there I met this man named Asher, well I met a few new people during this trip to Sunset Valley but that will be saved for a later time, and after a few drinks in me we went back to his house. There we, well let’s just say I am not proud of my actions. However, Asher is a great guy and he was kind and nice and didn’t judge me. I was glad because even though I was ashamed of my behavior it was nice to be with a guy outside my challenge. Well my body didn’t know we weren’t doing the challenge and soon we had a beautiful son named Derrick. The reason he hasn’t been in my blog before this is Asher had begged me to allow him to keep Derrick with him. It was a hard decision for me to make, but finally I felt this would be the best thing. He would be one of my children that didn’t have to be labeled as a 100 challenge baby. Asher emails, calls and writes to me all the time and now that Derrick is a child I get pictures and calls from him as well. I am so proud of the son he has turned out to be and I love him dearly. Asher is a great dad and I am blessed to have both in my life.

I got an email from Mr. Green yesterday and he had gone out to where Raven and her family lived. When he told her who he was and what he wanted she wouldn’t believe him or even talk to him, but I guess Miles finally convinced her to at least hear him out. After he told them his theory and about Harmony she called her brother Kale and he and his wife Crimson came right over. The tale was retold and something seemed to make sense to the twins, but they still needed the proof. DNA tests were done and the results are these two people Raven and Kale Bishop are really Diamond and Onyx Storm. Tears were shed all around and especially when the twins found out they were really triplets and their brother Steel was still missing. 

Mr. Green also explained that is was hard to call his children Raven and Kale, but they had been going by that name longer then their birth names and he would find a way to get use to it. The three of them and their families are now joining the search for Steel and Harmony. I hope someone comes up with something soon.

I also heard from Violet on this subject and Miles had told her that Raven finding her father, or really her father finding her, has really helped her in her therapy and she doesn’t seem as scared now, but they have a long way to go.

I will finish this post later for I must head to the hospital now.

Well I am back home now and I am exhausted but my three beauties are sleeping and I just wanted to take some time before I head to bed to finish this blog and get it posted.

I had another set of triplets…all boys:

 

It appears they all got their father’s pigment. I am excited to have toddlers, A Child and teens in the house for Christmas. I hope that SimClause is good to us all.

Well my friends I must wrap this up. Oddly there is someone at my door at this late hour.

Thank you avid reader for continuing on this journey with Ashby and I even when the blog updates are so far apart. I hope you enjoy the drama and love and excitement I have planned for Ashby and her family. 

I would love to hear from you so post your comments here or on my facebook page you can find me under Ashby Starr.

Until next time……

Ashby Starr – Levi & Babies 11,12 & 13

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

LEVI STARR AND BABIES 11,12 & 13
**REMEMBER THERE IS ADULT CONTENT IN THIS**
IF YOU ARE UNDER 16 MAKE SURE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO READ!

 

Here is my new look? What do you all think? Sheik, old fashioned, perfect? Haha… I think I like it and I really love my hair this way. 

Well life at the Starr’s has been kind of mundane, the same ole’ routine day after day. I am not complaining, well perhaps I am a bit. For an adventurous Sim like me days, weeks, moths or heaven forbid years like this can put us in a rut, a bad mood. I am doing my best not to take my mood out on my kids, but I think they sense something is up. My trip to Bridgeport with Vi Newbie both helped my mood and soured it. It reminded me of what adventures I was missing but at the same time gave me the much needed break from everyday life.

It wasn’t long after the Vampire twins were brought home that it was time to age them into toddlers so that we could get them started in learning their skills. I have to admit that vampire toddlers are much harder than other toddlers. 

 

Ash Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3370525

Elvira Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3370521

Perhaps I am just tired, I don’t know, but the kids are learning their skills very slowly. Even with the help of their older sisters.

Ash is the only boy in the house right now and I have to tell you he is getting spoiled rotten. I wonder if that is why he is being stubborn about learning his skills. His big sisters do everything for him.

 

Sunshine has taken up the piano and she hopes to someday follow in her dad’s footsteps and become a rock star.

It was almost time for the Rock-Star triplets to age into Young Adults, but they asked me if we could hold off on that for just a little bit. They found a Sims Pageant, the Ms. Sim 2010 Pageant, they wanted to enter. Well I should be more specific, Simi and Stella wanted to enter but Sunshine really wasn’t that interested, but she had agreed to do so because her sisters really wanted this to be a triplet boding experience.

I agreed and they were off to the store for new clothes. They wanted my help taking the pictures so I took a headshot of each as well as one of them in their formal wear and their everyday wear. Stella had the hardest time choosing which pictures to use, but when all was decided they set out to drop off their application and participate in the interview. 

I wanted to share their entries but something happened with my computer and those pictures have been deleted. Ugh…stupid computers.

When they got back they told me all about their time away. The three, correction, the two off them (Simi and Stella) were talking a mile minute. Telling me how nice everyone was and that they ran into Violet Newbie and were introduced to her daughter-in-law Raven Newbie. Sunshine seemed distant and distracted. 

When I asked her what was wrong she told me that nothing was wrong, but she had a weird feeling about Vi Newbie’s daughter-in-Law Raven. I asked her to explain and she really couldn’t. She told me that the girl was very nice and she enjoyed talking to her, but there was something about her that was nagging at her. She didn’t know what or why but the feeling was very prominent.  

She then presented me with a picture of the girl.

 

When I asked her where she got it she told me that she had swiped it from the pageant. I was furious at first that one of my children stole something but when I looked at the girl in the photo I too got a weird sensation about her and that something about her seemed “familiar”. 

Her skin tone was unique, even for a Sim, but it was her eyes that spoke to me the most. They had a kindness that I have seen before, but I just couldn’t place where. 

It was time for the Triplets to age into Young Adults and I couldn’t be prouder of them. 


 Simi Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420216

Stella Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420180

Sunshine Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420163

Simi Starr: Once she aged up she was on the computer getting a job with the police force… She wanted to be a super spy.

Stella Starr: She is going to be a great creator of monsters some day. They accepted her in the science career as soon as she made the call.

Sunshine Starr: She is going to follow in her daddies footsteps and become a rock star. She ran out and got a job in the music profession. 

Then my girls were gone and I miss them terribly, but I am very excited to see how they change the Sim world.

 

During their party the Paparazzi showed up taking pictures and watching every move my kids made. I am not sure I like the fact that my town has decided I am a celebrity.  

Once the Rock-Star Girls were moved out and we rested from their party it was time to age up Jury and Journey into teens.


 

 

Jury Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420183

Journey Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3420186

The following Monday when the girls were at school I finished teaching the vampire twins their skills and decided it was time to age them into children. I know it sounds a bit selfish, but I just needed a little time from kids who needed all my attention. After a breather I knew I would be ready to have the next baby/babies.


 

 

Ash Starr Child: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443024

Elvira Starr Child: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443028

While the kids were in school I kept myself busy with my garden and other activities that I had neglected because my children always come first, but I couldn’t get Raven Newbie out of my head. I decided that I would call Vi and ask if she and her youngest at home, Lars and Laytin, wanted to come for a visit. Since the drive is long we decided to make it an overnight visit.

Before Vi and her boys came to visit I got a call from the social worker and they had another little boy that needed to be adopted. He was at the toddler age and his name is Levi.

 

Levi Starr Toddler: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3443026

I told her to bring him to me straight away and soon I was the mother to this sweet little boy.

 

The first time I took Levi to the park paparazzi showed taking pictures. Do I really want this kind of life for my children?

 

 

Lars and Elvira

 

Laytin and Elvira

 

Violet, Lars and Laytin arrived the following Saturday and I was so happy to see my good friend and her beautiful children. Her twins are vampire twins just like Ash and Elvira are. I knew that these four children would get along well and I was right. 

 

While the children played Vi and I took some time to catch up. I told her about Emmett being found and that we (Harmony’s family) were still at a loss as to what happened to Harmony. I showed her this post card I received from Ivy Wakefiled’s sister telling me that Ivy went to China with some of her younger children and they too were missing. I don’t know if this is a coincidence or what is happening. 

Vi told me that she has heard a rumor that Ivy Wakefield had gone missing, but the rumors she was hearing is that she may have met a man in China, but no one really knew the truth. 

I really do hope that is the case and another Challenge mother hasn’t been hurt or taken.

I then told her about Sunshine stealing the picture of Raven and how we both thought that there was something very familiar about her.

She then took some pictures of Miles’ family out and showed them to me:

 

Miles, Raven, Caplin and Fairlight Newbie

Miles Newbie was created by ELMSims3. You can download him here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3268782

 

 She told me about her daughter-in-law:

 

                        Raven and her brother Kale were found on the door steps of an Orphanage in Egypt when they were children. Both of them had no memory of who they were, where they had been, who their family was, nothing. The nuns at the Orphanage are the ones that started to call them Raven and Kale and about a year later a nice family, the Bishop family, wanted to adopt them. 

                        Raven and Miles met in Egypt when he was there for work and it was love at first sight. When it was time for Miles to move to his next job he was reluctant to go because he couldn’t bear to leave Raven. He hastily ran out and bought a ring, but it paid off when she accepted his ring and replied with “What took you so long?” They were quickly married after that in an intimate wedding. 

                        When the wedding was over Miles was suppose to be off to his next assignment, but he knew that Raven was a bit worried about moving around so he quit his job and decided wherever Raven goes he was there too. They decided to move to Sunset Valley to be closer to his family and oddly enough her brother Kale and his wife moved to Sunset Valley. 

                        The lovely couple now has two beautiful children, Caplin and Fairlight and the only thing that seems to be wrong with their marriage is that fact that Raven is afraid of intimacy. It seems now that the romance of a new relationship has calmed down and they are settled into a family routine Raven doesn’t want to get intimate with Miles unless they are trying for another child. She is even timid about holding his hand and having him drape his arms on her shoulders. Miles has been confiding in his mom with this and he also told her that Raven is in therapy, her choice, for this. She has been under hypnosis a few times and whatever happened to her before she was “found” is what caused her anxiety. 

            The two of them love each other and they are going to work through this, but she is frustrated that she can’t remember what happened to her and he is frustrated that he can’t help her.

Everyone had a wonderful visit and just as fast as our get together started it ended, this was a sad thing all around. It seems that the vampire children really bonded and they didn’t want to leave each other. Again I find myself having to clarify; Elvira and Violet’s two boys have bonded.  Ash, which got the evil gene tended to torment the other two boys and they aren’t that fond of him. I think Ash prefers it that way, but it does break a mother’s heart to see her child isolated on his own free will.

Our families bid each other a farewell with promises of future visits and Vi promised that she would call as soon as they got home.

I have a feeling that something more was formed while the Newbie’s and the Starr’s were together because not more than five minutes after Violet pulled out of the driveway Elvira got a text and as she read it giggling she quickly left the room. I decided not to address this now for it can’t be more than a little crush, right?

I had the picture of Raven Newbie and I just couldn’t get the fact that her past, as Violet had told me, is so vague and that she just looked familiar to me out of my mind. The only other person I knew that had the same color skin as she did was Mr. Green. With picture in hand I decided to visit him.

 

We had a great catch up session and when I showed him the picture of Raven his breath caught into his throat, the pictures fluttered from his hands and he muttered the name, “Diamond.”

Me: “What are you saying?”

Mr. Green: “That is my little girl Diamond Storm. I’m sure of it.” 

Me: “How can you be so sure?” But I knew how he could be sure. Just as I was sure I had seen the kindness in those eyes before. That look in the picture was a look Harmony had given in so many of her pictures. As soon as he has said her name I had felt in my heart that he was right.

Mr. Green:  “Ashby, don’t tell me she doesn’t look familiar. She has her mother’s expression and my skin and eyes. This is my daughter. Do you know where I can find her?” 

I gave him all the information I knew and he quickly excused himself with a promise that he would let me know the outcome. 

When I got home I had the feeling of thankfulness. I was thankful that I knew where all my children were and that they were safe. I couldn’t imagine being in Mr. Green’s position. His children; Diamond, Onyx and Steel, had disappeared years ago along with their mother. There had been no word about any of them or from any of them, and now to think that one of them was alive with a family of their own and you had no participation with your grandkids and your child’s life. I felt like crying; crying for Harmony, for her children and for the father’s of the missing children; Mr. Green and Lady Guy and even for Malakai Rose. Even though he has found his son he missed out on so much and Emmett doesn’t remember anything that has happened to him or who he is really. He doesn’t remember his mother or his missing siblings and even though the siblings that are left in Twinbrook have gone to visit him he doesn’t remember them and to me that is heartbreaking. 

I didn’t want to break down in front of my kids so I locked myself in the den and logged onto the computer. I pulled up my email and immediately a smile broke out on my face. I had an email from someone who could always make me feel better. The thankfulness overtook me again and I was thankful for him, my children and this challenge. I was getting ready to reply to his kind words when I got an instant message from him. We spent the next couple of hours chatting and then Levi needed me. I bid my friend farewell and with a smile that wouldn’t quit I climbed the stairs to my little boy.

 

I have noticed that Elvira has been on the computer more and more and she told me that she, Lars and Laytin have all become best friend’s and she loved having other Vampire children as friends. She even let it slip that she was going to marry one of them someday. I think it is cute, but Vi and I have talked about it and we are both a little concerned with the increased disagreements between her boys in regards to Elvira, but they are still children we decided to keep an eye on it, but it is still too early to really address something like this.

While chatting with my girls (the other challenge mom’s) and playing around on facebook I found a few Holiday pageants to enter. 

 

The holidays are right around the corner and we as a family thought it would be fun to enter. We got busy and got a tree and decorated it. 

Jury took this picture of me…she is trying her hand out in photography. 


 

 

Well here are our entries. I am still working on figuring out the editing, but I am sure I will eventually get it.

 

After we took our pictures for the completion I made so dinner. I am getting pretty good at this cooking thing.

I left the fire place going overnight and it got so hot that a fire started. My brave Journey and I were able to put it out and no one got hurt. Thank goodness.

Then the routine of life started over again.

Before I knew it Levi had learned all of his skills and was ready to age into a child. We opted for a quite private party.

 

Levi Starr Child: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3466867

What lovely violet eyes he has and such flawless skin. What a handsome boy he turned out to be.

A couple of days later Jury and Journey were ready to age into Young Adults and move out on their own.

 

 

They didn’t want a big party either but they both wanted their dad there. Journey and he are already close, but for some reason Jury and he are not so it touched my heart to take this picture.


 

 

Jury Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470946

Journey Starr YA: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470948

The day after they moved out Ash and Elvira were ready to be teens. They wanted a big party and Ash insisted that I put Plum Tree on the guest list. I am not sure what that is all about but I knew that he had taken a shine to her at my last pool party.

The party was epic and my Vampire twins are so very beautiful and special. 

 
 

Ash Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470950

Elvira Starr Teen: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3470949

The two of them quickly got into a routine and after school Elvira was normally found on the phone with one of the Newbie boys and Ash was over at the Tree residence visiting Plum.

With only three children in the house now and all three of them in school during the day I decided that it was time to find the next dad to the challenge. It was difficult jumping back into my challenge because for some reason my heart wasn’t in it anymore. I couldn’t explain for sure what the change was, but also I am not a Sim who just gives up on a whim.

I decided that it was time for Froggie Lilpad to be called up. He had been waiting patiently for me and it was his turn. I called him up and he agreed eagerly to come over after work. It was pretty late when he arrived but I had a nice little surprise waiting for him. I had bought new lingerie especially for him and I had set the mood out by the hot tub. 

 

We took some time for a little chatting. I asked him how his day was and he asked me about my family. Then he asked the unexpected. He just simply asked for a first kiss. He was so cute so I obliged and then we got into the hot tub. 

Our time was fun and relaxing but when it was time for the making of baby 11 he promptly got out of the hot tub and told me that he couldn’t do this after all and headed for home.

I just sat there in puzzlement. After all this time he just bails, he chickens out? I just didn’t understand.

A few days later I had an unexpected visitor, it was the Grinch. He barged into my home without even being asked to come in. He started talking a mile a minute and what he said floored me.

 

The Grinch was created by BUTTONSGINGER and you can download him here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3345331

Grinch: “Ashby Starr, I am here to ask you a favor. I know I am not known to seek out the help of others and frankly I don’t even want to be here, but my time here is not going to last forever and I have decided that I would like an heir to take over my Grouchiness when I am gone.   I don’t relish the idea of making this heir, but I have decided that you would be my best option to have this heir. I can have a child with you and not have to see you again ever and you would raise that child until it is ready to take over my reign. So what say you Ashby Starr?”

I am sure my jaw was on the floor. When I was finally able to talk I asked a question that I don’t think he was expecting. “What if he or she gets the good trait and they don’t want to take over your Grouchiness?”

Ashby Starr babies 9 & 10

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 9 & 10

** there is a adult content in this post so if you are under 16 please make sure it is okay to be reading this **

 

 

            The Sims world has just expanded. We now have a big city called Bridgeport, with boutiques, clubs, stores, bars, and all kinds of new things to explore. Our stores in Twinbrook received a big shipment of new clothes and our stylists went there to take a class on some new styles. Once I heard this I rushed out to get a makeover. I know my outfit is a bit risqué for a mom, but it is perfect for a woman trying to catch the eyes of men.

 

            Sunshine (the one in red) is my eco-friendly girl. She has been trying to convince her siblings that the smart thing to do for our Sim World is to go green. She gets pretty angry when any of them question her. I have a feeling she is one day going to change the Sim World. I can’t wait to see how she flourishes. 

 

            They boys continue to get closer. They are not only brothers, but best friends. I know it will be soon that they will have to age to Young Adults and leave my home. Tears begin to well in my eyes as I think of this and then I remember my phone call with Violet Newbie and I suck them back and put on a brave face as my boys filled me in on all of their plans for when they move out.

 

 

            Every chance I get I read up on the latest recipes, being a natural cook this is something I sure enjoy doing.

 

            Before I knew it, it was time to age the twins into Tot’s. 

            Here is little Jury Starr:          

You can download her here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3306319

                With her dad’s blue skin and grey hair she is sure to catch people interest. 

 

            Awe look at little Miss. Journey Starr. She got her dad’s hair as well, but my eyes and a very light complexion, but I think she is going to have her daddy’s ears.

You can download her here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3306322

 
 

            With bands forming in Bridgeport and becoming very popular Twinbrook couldn’t be left behind so they got a shipment of new musical instruments for Sims to by and learn on. I went out and got one of each: Drums, Cello, Keyboard, piano, and now we have three guitars. I decided to try my hand at the drums and found out that I wasn’t too bad. My two baby girls like it anyway. Bennett heard me playing and came to check it out and decided to tickle the ivories. I think we are a musically talented family. There is nothing better than playing some music and having your kids join you.  

 

            Little Jury was trying to sing, but she doesn’t know how to talk yet so big brother Bennett took some time out to teach his sister to talk. While he did that I help Journey to learn to walk. My goodness these girls are picking up on their skills quickly.

 

            Greyson, what adventure are you on? You look scared out of your mind. 

 

            Hannah came for a visit. I was so happy to see her. I know she and her sister have only been out of the house for a short time, but to me it feels like forever. We got caught up and she told me that Harmony has started to date a boy named Neil Cha Cha.  What a strange name, but as long as my children are happy I am happy.

 

            While she was there I showed her our new musical instruments. I tested out the cello, but I’m not as good on that as I am the drums. Hannah had a brilliant idea. She suggested that I sell one of my cars and turn part of the garage into a practice area for the instruments.

 

            Here is what we came up with. We even added a dance floor.

 

            I went to check the mail soon after Hannah left and I got the shock of my life. I received a package with no return address on it. When I opened it up I nearly fainted dead away, what was inside was something I had never expected to see. It was a framed photo of Emmett Storm, the oldest Storm child that was with Harmony when she disappeared.

 

  The picture was current and there was a letter written by Malakai Rose, Emmett’s father.

Dear Ashby,

I know you and your family is looking for Harmony and her kids so I wanted to let you know what I have found out. It isn’t much, but it at least something and for me what I know has a happy ending. 

Three weeks ago I found Emmett. As you know Vampire Sim are uncommon, well that was the case until Bridgeport was built, and so I have had feelers out for a 16 + year old Vampire Sim all over the world and finally I got a call from an church, I know go figure, in France telling me that a young man staggered in needing shelter and food. He had no memory of who he was or where he had been. I flew there immediately and sure enough it is my boy. He doesn’t know what happened to him or his siblings or his mom, which is odd because he is a vampire. 

Ashby for someone to have the power to wipe a Vampires mind clean they need to have very dangerous connections. I want to warn you to be careful in your search for Harmony. I don’t know what she has gotten herself into but I am convinced that it is bad. 

Because of the seriousness of the matter I have decided that Emmett and I will not be returning to Twinbrook. We are going to return to my homeland of Scotland. I have notified Emmett’s siblings and anyone is welcome to come and see him but we are not returning. I need to protect my son now and this is the best way I know how. 

Good luck with your search for Harmony and I too will keep my searches open and if I hear anything I will let you know.

Malakai

            After reading this letter I was both thrilled and scared out of my mind. What had Harmony gotten herself into? What kind of person could succeed in erasing a vampires mind? On the other hand I was so glad that Emmett was found, alive and back with this dad. 

            I put the letter in a safe place and hung Emmett’s picture on the wall.

 

            Even though the news of Emmett being alive was never far from my heart and head it didn’t take long for the routine of motherhood to settle back in. It was feedings, changing’s, hugs and kisses, snuggles and crying and teaching my children their skills and the older ones to be good people.

 

            Greyson became very interested in athletics and working out. 

 

            I went to the library and I met my first celebrity. Wow look at Cooper Cupid. I remember him when he was a little pudgy and on one by Plum Tree appreciated him. Since he went to Bridgeport to film a commercial he gets recognized all over town. We had a nice chat and I was eager to get to know him a little bit better.

 

 

            Where does the time go? Before I knew it my two precious tot’s had learned their skills and it was time to age them into children.

            Here is little Jury Starr.

            Journey really did get a lot of her dad’s features and his ears. 

            The girls were very different in looks so they decided that they wanted to dress alike. I designed this little ducky dress for them and they love it. (if you like the dress you can find it on the exchange in my studio Xur28)

            A few weeks ago I got a call from my great friend Violet Newbie. She wanted to let me know that she was at the end of a pregnancy and that she was continuing the 100 baby challenge. I was thrilled. She went on to explain to me that she was having problems with Mollie and Andy and that she had relocated to Sunset Valley. I told her that once she had her new babe then she and I were going to head to Bridgeport to see what the buzz was about. We both needed some grownup time and she needed a break from the courts and Andy and just needed to get away. 

            When she was comfortable enough to leave her new little one with a nanny I too got one and we met in Bridgeport.

           

 

            We met up at the train station and there was a pretty woman playing the guitar for money. We both flittered a dollar into her guitar case and sat down to watch her for a little bit. We were both gitty and feeling like Teens again as we sat there thinking that the city was ours to do whatever we wanted. 

If you like Ashby’s shirt you can find it on the exchange in my studio Xur28.

 

            We finally left the train station and took at cab to the little apartment I rented for our long weekend. There we found two guitars and decided that a little jam session was in order. Vi was really getting into it as I was concentrating on the cords and being careful. 

 

            After our awesome jam session we hungry so we decided to see what Bridgeport had to offer in the food department. We wandered around and find this cute little dive bar and decided this was our place. 

            It wasn’t very busy and that was okay. We snuggled up to the bar and I ordered nachos while Vi ordered wings. The food wasn’t terrible but it certainly wasn’t a four star restaurant. 

 

 

            After we ate we thought it would be fun to get on stage and try our hand at entertaining he one man and the bartender in the bar. Vi took on the drums while I took on the keyboard. The two onlookers actually liked us. 

            Now way is it that Vi looks like she is having way more fun than me? Aren’t I the adventurous sims?

 

            Shuffleboard anyone? Remind me never to play Violet Newbie for money again!

 

 

            Before the night was over we strolled around Bridgeport taking in the sights and finally to end our night we took a guided tour of Plumbob Pictures Backlot.

            After the backlot tour we went back to our apartment for a nice needed sleep. We both slept late the next morning which is something we mommies rarely get to do.

            The next night we decided to go to a club instead of a bar. It was a hip happening place and we went a bit crazy, but in a fun and safe way.

 

 





            When we got there Vi ordered a drink called Neon Breeze that cost her $14.00. Yikes what are we thinking? We have kids to raise!! I ordered a drink called Alien Brain and mine was $16.00. Despite the cost of the drinks they were very yummy. We sat down and had some pizza and once the music and drinks hit us we ready to have some fun.

            We danced the night away most of it on top of the tables. When we got back to the apartment we were both exhausted.

  

            The next night we decided to go to one of the hot spots. The building was awesome, but when we got up to the floor the bouncer wouldn’t let us in. We had to bribe our way in. How awful??!! After Vi gave the greedy bouncer her money she was told that she would have let her in for free, but that that the mouthy red head (me) had to pay. I was stunned. People in Twinbrook weren’t this rude.

            Once we got into the club we found that it was empty! How it is that a hot spot is empty? However, Vi and I don’t need a lot of people to have a great time. We took advantage of the emptiness and enjoyed what the club had to offer.

 

            We took advantage of the bubble machine and had a grand ole time. Vi’s chose the Cotton Candy flavored bubbles and I chose Mint flavor.

 

            The next morning came quickly and we decided to form a band. We called ourselves 100 Babies. Our first gig was on the street corner. We didn’t make much money but we had a blast. Now Bridgeport has 100 Babies in their band selection so we will see if we get a call up for a real gig.

 
 

            The next night I got a phone call from Stella telling me all about her new friend and how she missed me. I hung up and a wave of longing swept through me. I wanted to go back to my kids. Vi too was feeling the same thing. We decided to end our long weekend on night early. We hugged and made a mad dash for the train station.

            My kids were thrilled to see me and I them. It was good to be home, but in the back of my mind I was already thinking of the next Vi and Ashby weekend.

 

 

            Soon after I got home from my trip it was time to age the triplets into Teens:

            Simi Starr:       http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346528

                She got her dad’s rock-N-roll nose and my funky hair. What a combination for such a fun gal.

 

 

            Stella Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346527

                She too got her dad’s nose, but she didn’t want anything to do with the rock-N-roll image. She went with a more fashionable look.

 

 

            Sunshine Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346525

                Look at my little eco-friendly girl now. She has taken on the whole rock-N-roll image and she is proud that her dad is a rock star. **if you like her skirt you can find it in my studio on the exchange Xur28.**

 

 

            I really needed to get along on my challenge, but there wasn’t any more room in the household with the two boys, the triplets and the twins so it was time for the boys to become Young Adults and move out on their own.

            Bennett Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3351235

 

 

            Greyson Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3351232

                Before they left Greyson got a job in the science field and I was so very proud. Bennett wants to explore the arts and writing and I wished him success. As they left I handed them each a note and told them that when they are feeling down, stressed, or like they can’t handle things to read this note and mom is always behind them and is there.

Here is what their note said:

I’ll Sand by You

By the Pretenders:

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
‘Cause I’ve seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
You don’t know what to do
Nothin’ you confess, could make me love you less

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So, if you’re mad, get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now

Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you

When you’re standing at the crossroads
And don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along
‘Cause even if you’re wrong

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You’re feelin’ all alone
You won’t be on your own

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Yeah

Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you

I’ll stand by you
No, no, no, no, no
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you

            I kissed them both goodbye and they walked out of the Starr house on their way to greatness.

 

            I wanted to take a moment to thank TyLinn for this wonderful Cutesy Canopy Crib. It really makes the nursery even cuter. Thank you ever so much TyLinn for the great gift.

            I also wanted to say thank you to my friend Vi Newbie she gifted me a dress during the last blog post and I forgot to thank her — I am so sorry for that — I am not sure how to take pictures of the gifts and I am sorry for that too.

 

            This is Rich Whelohff. I have to explain that I vaguely remember this picture being taken. Rich is the next daddy in my challenge, but he wasn’t planned. Actually Froggie Lilpad and I had already made arrangements that once I had room in the house he was to be the next daddy, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball.

            Before you all get concerned Rich didn’t force me to do this, well not exactly. Okay let me explain.

            Soon after my girls turned into teen’s Simi and Stella started to complain about these weird feeling they got. It was like they were being hunted or something. I have never heard of anyone in Twinbrook feeling like this so I started to do some research and I found out that since Bridgeport was built the Vampire population was moving into Riverview, Sunset Valley, BB and Twinbrook. The more research I did the more uneasy I felt for my kids. These kinds of vampires weren’t like Emmett and his father, they were more sinister. 

            Then I discovered that our neighbors the Whelohff’s were vampires. I marched myself over there to ask them, nicely, to stop stalking my girls. I was greeted by Rich and he seemed nice enough. He invited me in and explained that he and his wife were new vampires and was just learning how to use their abilities as well as to be as much a part of the community as they could. 

            I don’t remember much after that and when I learned I was pregnant I was shocked, concerned and bewildered. I called up Rich and he explained that he and his wife had been trying to have a child, but it wasn’t happening and since he knew I was doing the challenge he didn’t think there was any harm in compelling me to sleep with him. 

            The vampire used his abilities to have a child with me! Gosh I would have said yes if he would have only asked, but I guess vampires will be vampires and baby number 9 is on the way.

 

            When I found out that Harmony got promoted to Resident at the hospital I invited her over for an overnight catch up session.

 

            We had a nice lunch together and I got all caught up on her new guy and her new job. I told her all about my trip to Bridgeport and it was just wonderful to spend time with my eldest child.

 
 

            I announced that I was pregnant with baby 9 and she was very excited for me. With her promotion she was now able to tell the gender of babies. She offered, I accepted and I found out I was going to have a little boy. This put me on cloud nine.

            Don’t get me wrong I love my seven girls, but since my two boys moved out there were only girls in the household and a boys antics is what the house needed.

 

            The day I went into labor I was practicing the drums in the garage. I had decided to have my first home birth but the pain came quickly and intensely that I ended up giving birth in the garage!

            After what seemed like forever I have my very first set of Multi-Gender Twins. Twinbrook and readers please welcome Vampire babies:

 

            Ash Star

 

            And Elvira Star.

 

Thank you beloved reader for once again being here with Me (Jen the writer) and Ashby on our journey. Neither of us would continue with this challenge if it weren’t for you. 

I would also like to thank Della Wriner for having Ashby in her wedding and for all the 100 baby challenge mothers: Violet Newbie, Della Wriner, Cadence Sierra, Elizabeth Reting, Christy Quinn, Sky Greene, Maci Wriner, Alyssa LaMont, Vanessa Wood, Nicki Cranford, Aliana Diamond, Leah Sierra, and Kendel Roberts for having such a great group and support system.

Please your feedback is encouraged and welcomed.

Ashby Starr babies 7 & 8

ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 7 & 8

** there is a adult content in this post so if you are under 16 please make sure it is okay to be reading this **

            My life has started to get busy, but not in the way I had planned. Having 7 kids in the house is a lot of work. There are always chores to do and kids to take care of. Some would say that having this many children and raising them well is the biggest adventure a Sim could ask for, and I would agree to a certain extent, but for an adventurous Sim as myself it isn’t enough. I yearn to go out into the world. I yearn to explore and find rare things, but most of all I yearn to find out what happened to my beloved cousin Harmony Storm. However, for now I need to be here for my children because my three babies are too young for me to be traveling around the world.

            Time went on one day at a time and my family and I developed a routine and I was able to push my restlessness away for a while. At times my life seemed very routine and mundane, but for the most part I was happy and I loved my children.


 

 

            Here is my look for this pregnancy. What do you think? 

 

            Greyson was over the moon that he had a new brother his age to hang out with. When he found out the Bennett was a bookworm he tried to be interested in it as well and started to ask him a whole bunch of questions about his favorite authors and genre of book.

 

            Being the eldest of 7 children and being the eldest of twins Harmony understood the importance of attention and helpfulness and she showered the triplets with love. She helped me out immensely with them.


 

 

            Hannah was also a big help to me, but she normally had to be asked because during her spare time she was found working on her martial arts and look at how accomplished she has become. She is now a red belt.



 

 

 

            Pool activities are always a pastime in our house. “Good job Hannah for winning but don’t be a spoiled winner. Explain to your brother how to hold his breath longer.”



 

 

 

            The triplets are very time consuming. They are always in constant need of attention and feedings and diaper changes. The teenage twins help out and it is a great feeling to know that my children will be there for each other. 

            This thought made me a bit sad because I have run into the older Storm children around town and since the disappearance of their mother and the younger siblings they have grown apart. Harmony would be heartbroken to know this is what is happening to her children.

 

            Harmony still has a huge crush on Arch, but I have a feeling that with all her efforts and good looks he just isn’t as interested in her as she is in him. Actually I have a feeling that he harbors a secret crush on a different Starr woman, and she isn’t even his age. Yes I am referring to myself. The boy is always trying to talk to me and he follows me around asking me every question under the sun. Perhaps someday one of the future Starr girls will catch his attention. I am too old for him!!

 

            I am very impressed with Harmony. She has decided to learn how to fix things so that when she and Hannah are ready to get a place of their own they don’t have to waist their hard earned money on a handyman. “Way go to girl.”

 

            Life as an infant is quick lived at the Starr residence. It was time to age the triplets up into tots. 

 

            Here is Simi (again thank you Missy for the name). Isn’t she cute with her little pigtails and my eyes? She got my hair too, but she got darker skin that I believe she got from her grandparents.

You can download her here: (I forgot to copy her link.. darn it!!) but you can find her on the exchange if you look me up Xur28.

 

            Next up is Stella. She is too cute with her headband and dark blue skin. She too got my eyes and even though she doesn’t have much hair right now I think she may have gotten my hair. I am over the moon that she got her dad’s skin tone.

You can download her here: (I forgot to copy her link.. darn it!!) but you can find her on the exchange if you look me up Xur28.

 

            Finally it is little Sunshine. She got her grandma’s bright blue eyes and it appears that she got my red hair, but the highlights are white like her dad’s. 

You can download her here: (I forgot to copy her link.. darn it!!) but you can find her on the exchange if you look me up Xur28.

            What beauties these Rock N Roller babies are. I can’t wait to see them progress in life.


 

 

            “Go baby go.” Sunshine is cute crawling over to play dolls with her sister Simi.

 

            Stella loves her teddy bear. 


 

 

            Is it wrong of me to be happy that the agency was having trouble adopting out Bennett before he became a Starr? I love him so much and he is so good with the younger children. I am so glad I was able to adopt him and he seems to be a very happy well adjusted young man.





 

 

 

 

 

            Time moves along while kids are being kids and mom is being mom. The tot’s are moving right along in their skills and to my amazement I have yet to have an argument between any of my children.


 

 

            I ran into Greyson’s dad Willy. I began to fill him in on everything and he got rather upset with me. “I don’t want to hear about your other kids. I only want to hear what is happening with Greyson and how is he doing in school?” I sighed but filled him in about how well he plays with my younger kids and that he is doing great in school. I reminded him that he was welcome to come over or call Greyson whenever he wanted to and then I headed home.


 

 

            It was finally time for another birthday. *sigh* They come too quickly, but it something that has to happen if I am going to attempt to finish his challenge like Cadence and Della did. Since Bennett was older the Greyson it was his turn to age into a teenager. He was happy just to invite Grandma and Grandpa Starr over and just the family to celebrate.

                When the party was over I went up to my bedroom. I felt like crying. I knew that it was not going to be very long until my two oldest were going to age into Young Adults and move out to make room in the Starr household for the next set of kids. I needed to talk to an adult, but who do I call? I couldn’t call mom because she would encourage me to quit and I couldn’t call dad because he would just tell me to follow my heart. I needed someone I could really talk to about this. Someone who could relate to me, I picked up my cell and dialed a familiar friend.

            “Hello.” Came the voice on the other end

            “Vi, it’s me Ashby.” 

            I had called my dear friend Violet Newbie. She and I had a good long chat. I told her how I was feeling about my children aging up so quickly and about wanting to quit the challenge because of it and for other selfish reason such as the need to go out and be adventurous with my life. She told me that I wasn’t selfish for having these feelings and that it is hard to see your child move out and with the challenge the children move out much quicker than normal, but that in the end it was more than worth it to see how your children flourish and change the Sim world with what they accomplish. 

            Vi and I had a great talk. When we finally hung up in the wee hours of the morning, I sure wish she lived in the same town as me, I felt much better about doing this challenge, but was still feeling a bit blue for my friend and confidant. She had told me that she was giving up her challenge. Not for the reasons most of us mothers would consider quitting for, but she was assaulted by her daughter Mollie’s dad, Andy. She thought she had gotten past it and she even had some more children after Mollie, but the trauma was way too much. Mollie was acting out and her other children were suffering because of Violet’s mood swings and Mollie getting a lot of attention. So she made the toughest decision ever. She decided to withdraw from the challenge and concentrate on getting better and being there for all her children. 

            I told her that I would call her soon and we hung up. I shed a few tears for my friend then picked myself up and took a nap before the day started.

 

            Wow Hannah is really dedicated to her martial arts. Look she is now a green belt!!

 

            A few days after Bennett aged into a teenager it was time for Harmony and Hannah to become young adults. With a heavy heart I made the arrangements for a pool party to celebrate.


 

 

            First it is Harmony. My what a lovely young woman with her dark features and piercing eyes. Too bad her crush on Arch didn’t go anywhere they would have made a cute couple, but when she asked him to age up with her he acted confused. She explained that she had a crush on him and that she wanted to perhaps get to know each other better. Arch was shocked. He had been clueless to Harmony’s kindness this whole time. He gently let her down and heartbroken my baby walked away wondering why she had been wasting her time. I wanted to run to her. To hold her and tell her it would be okay that mama was here, but she is a young adult now and she has to figure things out on her own.

            Next up is Hannah. The twins really don’t look like twins, but they always choose to do their hair the same. It is the one thing they can do to be like each other and the rest of them, like their dress style, is all their own. What a beauty she is sporting my hair and her grandma’s bewildering eyes.

            I wished my girls luck, gave them a lasting hug and then my first born(s) were out the door. 

            Goodness gracious! It wasn’t long until it was time to age up the triplets to get them started in school before I have the next baby/babies. 

 

            Simi Starr got her dad’s nose and the main facial structure and she got my hair and eyes.

            Little Blue Stella Starr look just like her dad, but she got my eyes as well and she has my base color hair, red, but her dad’s white highlights. She chose to have her hair styled in a cute little pixie cut.

            Sunshine Starr, she too got my hair color with the white highlights from her dad. She has more of my face structure, her grandma’s eye color and her dad’s eyebrows. She is the perfect combination of her parents and grandparents. *breathtaking*

            These three girls are going to do big things. I can just feel it. Will they be musicians like their dad, will they roll the adventurous trait like me, will they be kind and help animals? I just can’t wait to see what they will accomplish together or apart.

            It was time to start looking for the next daddy. I called up my old friend Archibald Trewt (created by McCallumJ) and he invited me to his place. We took a little time to catch up and then I finally mustered up the courage and asked him participate in my challenge. He thought about it for a moment and then took my hands into his. “Ashby, you and Harmony were my two very closest friends growing up. Looking like I am much older than I am doesn’t help make friends my own age very easy and you and Harmony just didn’t care. I had planned to be in her challenge and I would be honored to be in yours. Let’s go upstairs and see what happens.”

            Archibald he is one great guy I tell you and in more ways than one. We went upstairs and it wasn’t long before we heard the chimes of the lullaby.

            “Is this going to cause weirdness in our friendship?” He asked me.

            I looked over at him and smiled, “No not at all. If the rules didn’t state that I have to use different men for this challenge I would have the rest of my kids with you.” I winked at him.

            He laughed kissed me on my cheek and got out of the bed. We ate lunch together and then I had to get back to my kids.

 

            Greyson cornered me as soon as I walked in the door. 

            “Mom.” He said in a matter of fact voice.

            I couldn’t help but chuckle about the seriousness in his voice. 

            “What is it baby?” I asked.

            “I don’t like that Bennett is a teenager without me. We have plans on moving out together so neither of us have to get along alone, but we can’t do this if I am this far behind him. I would like you to age me up to a teenager early and then age me up to a young adult when it is time to age up Bennett.”

            I was shocked. How could one of my babies, my only little boy that I have raised since birth ask for this? How could he want to leave me and his sisters earlier than scheduled?

            He let out a loud sigh, “Mom I see that look on your face. I don’t want to leave you or my sisters, but I don’t want to go out into the world alone and neither does Bennett. We are the best of friends and brothers and we want to be there to support each other. I am a single birth and he was adopted in so it makes sense to shift out of the house at the same time.” 

            I was like a deer in headlights. When did you my young son get so wise? 

            I finally told him that if he was on the honor roll that I would age him up that coming Saturday. 

            He was thrilled and when Friday rolled around I got a phone call from his teacher telling that Greyson ask her to call me. She told me that he was a very good student and has been on the honor rolls since he stated school. I had no choice but to comply with his request.

 

 

            He had remembered how much fun he had at his sister’s pool party so he asked for one himself. His dad showed, as well as his older sisters and several other people. It was a great time and my baby belly looks good in a bikini.

 

 

            He has a different kind of a style with his baggy pants and headset, but he is a heartbreaker no doubt about that with this reddish skin and jet back hair with my steel grey eyes. I have a feeling if he and Bennett don’t rush to grow up and move out there will be many female callers during his teenage stint.

            I spent my pregnancy with my kids and having a little fun. Video games seem to call me this time around and I was more than happy to scratch that itch. I had been watching my boys play them and it seemed fun, boy was I right. 

            Then the time came for me to head to the hospital. As I expected one of the kids had called Archibald and he was there waiting for me when I got there. He apologized up and down that he hadn’t been there to pick me up and bring me, but I told him that was fine. He shouldn’t worry about such things.

            Then I was introduced to my two new children:

 

            Jury Trewt-Starr and……

 

            Journey Trewt-Starr.

As always thank you for stopping by dear reading. I hope you know how much you are appreciated! I hope to hear your thoughts and comments. I hope I was able to make it at least semi-interesting since my underlining story wasn’t really in it again. Since my original idea went out the window I have been having trouble coming up with ways to tie Harmony back in. I have a big ending planned so I hope you stick around for that if nothing else. 

Please leave your thoughts or comments here, jxur28@yahoo.com or on my facebook page.

Harmony Storm 100 baby Challenge – babies 14 and 15

100 Baby Challenge:

Babies 14 and 15

 

It is time for my Winchester-Storm twins to grow into beautiful Young adults.

Destiny looks stunning in purple.

 

Faith what beautiful skin you got my girl.

Soon the girls would be moving out on their own so I talked with Leon and explained that I would need help with the smaller children once the girls were gone and told him I wanted to age him into a teen early.

 

He was happy about that. 

 

Here is my unique boy as a Teen.

 

Emmett has taken a liking to our goldfish and he makes sure Nicolas is fed every day.

 

 

Next it was time to age up the triplets into toddlers so I could start working with them on their walking, talking and using the potty. Once again, as in my early years of parenting, the cakes caught on fire and it was a disaster, but this time I had some older children around to help me clean up and the triplets were able to age up. Ambry girl don’t just stand there help me put this fire out!

 

Little Diamond, her skin is so dark, but she is so very sweet.

 

Onxy Storm, he got my hair.

 

Steel Storm, he got my hair and skin color, but his father’s distinct facial features.

 

 

Diamond and Onyx love their cars. 

 

The triples play so well together.   Here are steel and Diamond playing with the doll house.

 

Leon I told you that Steel had to develop some of his skills before I would allow him to watch tv. How can I get upset at this sweet scene? Two brothers watching TV. 

 

Homework homework homework there is always homework at the Storm house.

 

 

Leon is a handy kind of guy and helps me fix up the stuff around the house.

 

Next it was Emmett’s turn to age into a Teenager. We had a grand party with his dad and all of his siblings. My loner vampire boy sure has a lot of people who love him.

 

He may look a bit scary, but he is a sweet sweet boy.

***UPDATE***

I received a call from Destiny and Faith telling me they are both dating. Destiny is dating the Troll Man (yep Leon’s dad) Created by Monchi98.

Faith is dating Willy Widley created by Krazygirl1988.

I also got a call from JayLeece telling me that she and Bob Plum have had a baby together. His name is Noah. Oh My I am a Grandma!!! I gave her a small lecture about not calling and telling me she was pregnant, but quicky after expressed my happiness and excitement to meet him.

 

**HAHA** look at the weird glitch.

Leon helped me teach the triplets to walk, talk and use the potty.

 

Go baby go!! Look at how well Onyx is walking now.

 

In a moment of weakness and loneliness I agreed to be Lady Guy’s girlfriend. The rules state that I can’t marry any of the fathers, not that I can’t have one of them as a boyfriend. He understood my challenge and what I had to do but still wanted me to be his girlfriend. He also agreed to be a daddy of my next baby.

 

We went upstairs and got busy with the baby making.

 

After we went downstairs to get something to eat and he made a nasty comment about my other children. I don’t tolerate that kind of talk in my home and realized that I made a mistake by saying yes to being his girlfriend. 

 

I broke up with him then and there and told him to leave my home. 

 

The next day it was time for Leon to become a Young Adult.

 

Very much like his father he is.

 

Peek-a-boo I see you Diamond.

 

This pregnancy went by quickly and without any excitement. Lady Guy hasn’t tried to contact me nor did he show up at the hospital when the baby…or should I say babies…came.

When I left the hospital I left with the rare baby carrier and two beautiful baby boys.

Please welcome:

 

Mordechai (thank you Supernatural for the name) Storm

And

 

Cervantes Storm (thank you Krazygirl1988 AKA Val Fisher for the name)

Now that the Green-Storm triplets have learned all their skills as toddlers it is time for age them up into children.

 

Diamond Storm.

 

Onyx Storm

 

And my little Evil Steel Storm.

 

Once again thank you for reading.
