Outakes and Funnies Years 2014-2015

This is the first time that I'm posting some unused/outtake pictures from this round. I don't normally share because I forget and end up deleting the pics. I hope you find them funny like I do. So enjoy!


Chole has gotten in touch with her natural side. She's all about being "green," so much so that she's trying to become one with the tree.

keep calm, carry on!

February, Winter 2015, Simone Lewis is 33, Ryker is 36, Winthrop is 6, and Orlando is 2. Last update.
Narrated by Simone


"Winthrop is very excited about our family secret. Well, it's not really a secret, I just didn't want him telling his friends until everything has been set in motion. But Winthrop can never keep anything a secret for long, and he "spills the beans" to his friend, Shaw.

It all comes back to the kids

February, Winter, 2015, Zac Burrego is 54, Jodie is 53, Fayodor is 10, and Cicero is 6. (Ariel Burrego and Bret Patrelli are both 25.5, Alex is 5, and Fae is 10 months old.) Last update.


It's all about the kids! That's Zac's motto. But it really is. Not to say that he doesn't do anything for his wife. That he's not motivated to provide a stable home, a good pay career only for his kids. He does all these things for his wife, Jodie, as well. He loves his whole family. But the future lies with their children, and he does all that he can to make sure that they have a solid foundation (education)...

"I enjoy being a mom. I didn't think I would, but once Mary-Beth came I fell into it with ease. And after Franco was born taking care of him is a breeze. I'm a natural at this point!"

Circle of Life Winter 2014

Birthdays for winter 2014. Last update.
We are only celebrating one birthday this time around. It's little Hunter Micheal, he's turning one this year. For his parents, Dominic and Nadya, it seems as if he were only born yesterday. They really do grow up fast.

I hav eno toddler pics of either one of his parents, but to me he looks like a perfect blend between then with Nadya's eye coloring, lips not sure, and for now I'm thinking Nadya's nose.

"We've had a pretty normal winter so far, but last night the sky opened up, spilling it's powdery contains all over the town. When I woke up this morning and looking out the window, it was as if I were looking at some french toast off the griddle, covered in white goodness.

Adult Education

Adult education in Riverdale

So since I have Townies who marry into my families, as well as sims who just happen to have skipped on their higher learning while young, I'm introducing higher learning for my older sims. So it's no longer, if you missed the boat too bad for you, in Riverdale.

Now adult sims wanting to continue their education or desiring to advance in their career can now do so. I'm still working things out, but for me, so far so good. I like what I've done right now. So this might change after a while.

Any resident residing in Riverdale without a degree may enroll in a correspondence course with the University of Riverdale (UoR) at any time, for a tuition fee of $8,000.

To complete their degree, the Sim will use Monique's computer to write X amount of term papers on selected subjects that go hand in hand with their chosen degree. I will pick which subjects they must write on, and the dead line for them to be submitted.

Once they've handed in the term papers assigned to them, I'll used the Lot Debugger to pick a major for them and get them their degree. Once that's all said and done, they have graduated and can now advance further in their chosen career path if they have returned to school for that purpose. Now if they were to school for a better job, they can now enter the work force and get a job at a higher level like any college graduate

something old and something new

November, Fall 2014, Trisha Johnson is 42, Clay is 41, Breda and Dallas are 11, and Deanna is 1. Last update.
Narrated by Trisha


"I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. A lot about the kids, and how quickly they are growing up. It seems only yesterday that I found out that we were pregnant for the second time, and expecting Deanna. And now she's one, already up and walking around, trying to say more words that what she already knows.

Lets play house

October, Fall, 2014, Sharla Ottomas is 31, Jordan is 5, and Rupert Cotton is 35. Last update.


Sharla hates fall, and winter, because it's cold or at least starting to get cold. Which can only mean one thing, cold and flu season. As if on cue, she is the first to get sick in the house. She coughed her cold from some idiot at work. He come sin coughing and sneezing all over the place and she was the unlucky one in the office to be affected by his germs.

Circle of Life September 2014

Birthdays for September 2014. Last update.

There's only one birthday this month, and it's the birth of Franco Novak. He's the second addition to proud parents Nathan and Tosha Novak. His big sister, Mary-Beth is finally glad that he' here, but she's also sad. He really doesn't do much but cry and poop. No fun... yet!

He has his mother's skin tone, his father's blue eyes, and both parents blonde hair.


No hospital birth, just imagine that she had him there and came home. I was so tired when I did this one, and I was still in the process of remodeling the hospital. It wasn't ready so I couldn't take any pics there.

Franco is one month younger than his cousin's Caitlin and Kian.
