Moving out

Poor Karson, he's had to witness his parents' public displays of affection all his life. You'd think he would be used to it right now - I mean, really, they woohooed with him right there at the foot of the bed when he was a toddler... but it seems that even a passionate kiss is enough to make his gag-reflex kick in. (Sorry, I don't have a decent picture of Samantha as an elder yet!)

I guess even teenage heiresses aren't too old for their Daddy to read them to sleep.

Kohl is an ambitious teen, he's found himself a job.

What a great butler... he even fixes broken computers!

It seems that having an after-school job isn't enough for Kohl. He wants to get into private school, also. Here he is calling up the head master himself.

The basement is a fun after-school hangout for all the teens. Here we have Kelsie on the piano, Karson on guitar, Danica (a schoolmate) on bass, Keid banging on the drums, and Kohl and Kailee boogying the night away. Not sure where Kendra was during the mini-party they had down there.

I love this outfit on Kailee...

One of the girls that came home from school with one of the teens broke into the Smustle right there on the sidewalk. Not sure she ever even made it into the house. Weirdo.

Does Kendra have a secret admirer?

Ah... the head master has arrived. Darn thing was glitched, I replayed this day like 4 times and can't get poor Kohl into private school, because the HM just stands there after being greeted. Interactions just fade out. I gave up and tried to fix it in SimPE and it's a dang good thing Kohl isn't my heir, because now he doesn't have an aspiration. O.o

Karson has grown up into a handsome young man. He's chosing not to attend college at this point in his life.

But this house is too crowded. 3 adults and 5 teens is a lot of people for one house. Even with two bathrooms.

Kelsie gets along well with all her siblings.

Even if she does like to give Keid a hard time once in a while.

She really gets a kick out of it, especially when he isn't happy about it.

But she usually makes up for it later.

Joe tries to keep himself fit and healthy.

This picture looks like Kailee is getting ready to tell Daddy something he won't like, but it turned out she was just congratulating him on how many best friends he had. LOL

Karson decides the time has come to look for a place of his own.

So he sits down to the computer and checks out the online rental ads.

The whole family comes to wish him luck as he leaves for his new apartment across town.

At first, Karson doesn't look back on his childhood home.

But he can't help watching it fade into the distance as they drive away.

(Even though Kohl has a memory now of getting into private school, the teens still all go to school in their regular winter-wear. I didn't notice them changing their clothes before putting on their coats, so I don't know if they changed into uniforms or not.)

Maybe now that Karson has moved out, Keid will have a chance to woo some of the girls that come home with the teens after school.

Here we see Karson's new apartment on the other side of town. It's not much - just a bedroom, bathroom, living room and small kitchen.

But the young man wastes no time getting on the phone and calling up his favorite 3LB girl - Madison - and inviting her over.

Dang. She walked into the house and they immediately got naked on the couch. Seriously.

I guess they worked up an appetite.

After Madison left, Karson went downtown and met up with another girlfriend from his high school days, Mia. They made use of the photo booth at one of the local restaurants. Wink, wink.
(Madison and Mia were both aged up when Karson was. Possibly one other girl but I can't remember right now.)

While out on the town, Karson met up with Andrea Hogan. They had met a few times when he was still a teen, and Andrea didn't really want to have much to do with him. But she agreed to come back to see his new place.

Apparently she's changed her mind about what she wanted to have to do with Karson. I'd say his new apartment is well-initiated so far.

Life Goes On

Kendra was building a sandcastle on their beach one morning, before the sun even rose. Before she could get it finished, she was surprised by a big dog with glowing yellow eyes. She wasn't sure at first if he was going to be friendly,

but before long the two were playing and having a good time. He stayed past sunrise, and didn't leave until she had to leave for school.

Joe and Samantha are enjoying their private beach.

The new butler they hired when they moved into their new house is a hard worker. Here he's trimming the flowers outside. He serves all their meals,

makes beds, takes out the trash, and more.

Karson invited Mia over for another date, which seems to have gone well.

Kelsie met a boy at school, Julio Charvat, who seemed to spark her interest.

And then Karson met Mariana. Lightning bolts flew! (His first 3LB match)

Things got pretty serious with her on their date, although neither of them will admit to having more than a crush on each other.

All the kids had to get their homework done,

but Karson got his done in time to have another date with Alyssa.

The inevitable has finally reached us. After drinking an entire vat of Elixir of Life, extending his life longer and longer, Joe has finally reached elder status. (He was soooo much older than Samantha when they finally got married, I had him drink the Elixir until he was only about 3 days older than her.)

Samantha and Kelsie spend some time on the beach together.

Kendra loves the new piano that one of Karson's dates left for him. So much that she wouldn't stop playing and come downstairs for her own birthday!

Kailee transitioned into a beautiful teenage girl.

The next morning, Kendra finally transitioned into a fairly nice-looking teen, as well. She was too tired after playing the piano the night before and refused to age up until she'd had some sleep.

This side by side comparison of the twins' profiles should explain why Kailee was chosen, rather than Kendra.

Here's Kohl, displaying his ONE nice point. (A good part of the reason he was passed over for heir, also.)


While Kelsie isn't a two-fisted drinker, she doesn't waste any time drinking just one instant meal at a time!

Do you recognize this gender-transitioned, aged-down-to-teen, LL Girl SimMe?

Or this gender-transitioned Sim-me?
