Ash (bonus boy/young adult/green)

Boone (bonus boy/teen/yellow)
Persephone (girl #12/teen/lilac)
Cora (Ash’s daughter/infant/purple)
Delilah (Ash’s daughter/infant/lime)
To check up on those who’ve already moved out, you can view the Murdle family tree. Also, if you find yourself wanting a Murdle of your very own, up top at the Family tab is where you can grab .sim downloads of them once they hit young adult. 🙂
Last time, prom went swimmingly for Boone & Persephone (and dates), Brittany gave birth to Ash’s twins, and then Ash & Brittany had a lovely beach wedding. Then I took a huge break to do a new story during September (it’s still in progress; you can check it out here: We’ve Got Spirits ). I’m back to wrap up the Murdles because they really are thisclose to being done.
Ash and Brittany come home from their beach wedding and immediately dote on their girls. (Delilah is the redhead held by Ash, Cora has dark hair and is in Brittany’s arms.)
It’s time for Boone’s birthday, which I forgot. It’s also a full moon, which I forgot. He was outside on the telescope, and I forgot. Random zombie tries to attack.. thankfully the birthday celebration action takes precedence.
Newly young adult Boone tosses a cocky look at the zombie creeper.
Here’s the requisite in-stylist-mode pic of Boone. He honestly doesn’t look much different, and I can’t recall what trait he got (this was from gameplay this summer). I’ll update when I upload him to the family tab.
Ah yes, twin infants. Both squalling. Sounds to me like they both need some cake too.
And so off they go to be aged up as well.
Better pic of Cora. Apparently did not get an un-crosseyed pic of Delilah.
Brittany took Cora off to start learning to walk
While Ash did the same with Delilah
Persephone is spending her final days building her sculpting skill.
Grandma Alisa is fantastic about keeping those girls on the same schedule. (She’s putting Delilah to bed too, not waking her up.)
Ash is out fishing.
After the girls’ rest, Alisa teaches Cora to talk (man does this girl look like her daddy or what?)
Shawn works with Delilah
Yay girls! Hygiene and cleanliness are both important!
Ash.. still fishing. Our backyard pond is stocked with deathfish thanks to him, so he’s building himself up the ranks of fisherman. I think he’s at 9. I don’t think he’ll reach 10.
The girls can talk, so the grandparents swap kids and finish out the walking skill.
They had already learned to potty thanks to grandma shoving them back on the seat until they figured it out. LOL
Glitched up Brittany is leveling painting. I have her change clothes after this and she’s fine. I wish I could figure out what it is that gives me the “basement cat” sims like this. None of her outfits in CAS look to have CC in them.
Persephone starts a new sculpture.
My last needed Murdle heading off to her final day of school.
Cora loves her imaginary friend. I leave her to it because I won’t be having to deal with it as she ages. LOL
Delilah thinks this sheep is the bomb diggity.
To bed with the both of them.
Persephone wraps up her second sculpture – this giant head that turned out to be worth $20 or something. Pretty sure that much clay would be worth more than that in materials alone.
No time to carry on though.. it’s birthday time for the baby of the family!
*horns of celebration*
*clapping because he doesn’t have to raise any more children*
Persephone as a young adult.
She gave this face just after discovering that being grown up means you’re gonna make your own food if you’re hungry. LOL (Seriously, she aged up, whined about hunger, I directed her to cook, and she gave me this shocked look. Ah, baby-of-the-family problems.)
And Persephone’s official young adult pic. Like Boone, she got a trait. Also like Boone, I don’t recall it. I’ll add it when I upload her. 🙂
Pics of the toddlers cuz they’re adorable.
And Brittany is chained to the easel until she wraps up Persephone’s portrait.
At this point, my Murdle challenge is technically done. 12 boys & 12 girls have been raised (plus some bonus kids). However, I’m sure I’ll make one more post. My own goal has been to have each of the Murdle 2.0’s have at least one child (and beyond that was totally up to SP). I imagine I’ll post up pics of what all the Murdle descendants look like. May upload one or two of my faves for use in We’ve Got Spirits. This challenge was fun for me, but after the first 12 or so kids, I definitely was ready to move on to a new set of parents. I love seeing the way genetics blend in TS3, and so having just the same two parents the whole time wore on me after a bit. Though it did shock me just how dominant some features seemed to be (like I think there was something ridiculous like 5 out of 28 kids that got Shawn’s nose.) I started out trying to keep score but.. enh.. I like it better without points. 🙂
