TS4- Neighborhood Rotation: Suprise Baby

Chapter 66


Sofia couldn't believe the mess that her life had turned into.  All because of Jaxton Nunn.  That jerk!  Not only had he been seeing Morgan Fyres at the same time as her but when she told him she was pregnant with his baby he had the nerve to laugh and tell her there's no way it was his baby.  Then he asked if a baby would get in the way of them dating!

She'd made her way to the hospital alone... all of her family had turned their backs on her when she'd stopped being the perfect daughter by getting herself pregnant.  Doctor Noble announced that it was a girl.  She named her Tatum.

Sofia's mother accepted Tatum but still wouldn't speak to Sofia.

Sofia's family agreed to watch Tatum for awhile while she got out.  She went to the wishing well park intending to make a wish when her plans were ruined by the sight of none other than Jaxton!  He was dressed like a bum and smelled too.  She was humiliated that he was her baby's father.  She told him she didn't want to see him again.

After leaving the park she went to the movies alone and watched a horror movie that bored her so much she fell asleep.

Once she woke up she headed next door to The Shrieking Llama for a drink.  When the bartender announced it was ghost night she thought about leaving.  First a goofy zombie movie and now ghosts?  But she changed her mind after she met Nick and Dwight.

Nick was really funny and they chatted for hours.

When his color changed to a flirty pink she thought what the heck and started flirting with him.

They made their way outside and Sofia gave Nick a kiss.  And then he just disappeared.  Gone.  Wow.

When she got home she found her father holding her daughter.  Things weren't as bad as she had thought.  Especially now that she'd met Nick.


Explaining to Haven that her mother was dead when she aged up to a child was one of the hardest days of Angelo's life.

To cheer her up he took her to the park.

He adored his daughter.  Suri had wanted to name her Haven and that's what she was: his refuge.

When Angelo sees Zayne playing chess he sits down and asks him how he got over the death of his first wife.  Zayne replies that he didn't really move forward until he met Shea.

While watching Haven dance later Angelo decided he didn't need to replace Suri to be happy again.  He had his daughter.

He had his books.

He had his family.  He met Rocco at the bar later and his brother gave him a big hug when he saw him.

While they joked and played darts Angelo decided he had all he needed.  He would always love Suri and he would miss her until the day he died but she would want him to live his life to it's fullest.


After his sister Kaci moved out and Candy's sister Yuki aged to a young adult Dillon asked her if she would move in.

Caught up in the romance of the moment he asked her to marry him.

They decided to elope then and there!  They were excited that their lives together were finally moving forward.

They broke in the new bed.

Candy had to dj that night and Dillon loved watching his girl in action.

Speaking of action.

This was too cute I had to take a pic!

Chapter notes
Surprised?  So was I!  I had risky whoohoo turned to 5% and had been considering changing it to a higher percentage.  I didn't even know that Sofia was pregnant because I was playing Star's Bachlorette household and didn't go into manage households for several sim days.  When I got the notification that she was in labor I was in shock!  So she's added to the rotation families now.  I took her to a bunch of different lots hoping maybe one of the bachelors would show up but it was Nick instead.  I'm really happy with the way this turned out.

Extra note: I'm publishing this a month or more after I wrote it.  The only reason I can think of that I never published it sooner was because of needing to make genograms for the families.  I also have half a chapter screenshotted that goes further into Nick and Sofia's relationship.  The new posts after this one will be moving on to my new WordPress blog most likely with a new shiny name to go with it!

TS4- Neighborhood Rotation: Meet the Neighbors!

Welcome!  I am making this post for anyone who is new to the "Keeping Up with the Jones's" neighborhood rotation but doesn't want to read 50+ posts.  I will try to do my best to outline what's going on in each household.  At the time that I'm writing this I'm actually 13 chapters ahead of this in the game so forgive me if I mess something up!

Willow Creek


This is the part of the Jones family currently living in the Jones mansion.  Starting from the right is Sebastian Jones.  Sitting next to him is his wife Andrea (Landgraab) Jones.  To her right is their son Adam.  They have two other children, Adam's twin sister Ashley and their eldest Kaylie.  Beside him is his daughter Quinn and his wife Zoe (Zest) Jones.  Adam and Zoe got together on their birthday and she got pregnant with Quinn that night.  There really isn't much going on in the household right now.


This is Avery Valdivia and her cousin Jaxton Nunn.  Both of their families were killed in the recent epidemic that took 30 sim's lives.  They don't get along very well but Avery felt bad for Jaxton and had him move in with her after his parents died.  Other than that, not much going on here.


Meet the Goth family.  Starting on the left is Alexander Goth.  Next to him is his wife Scarlet (Firecracker) Goth.  On the couch closest to them is their son Marshall and his girlfriend Mallory.  On the other couch is his twin Maxwell and her twin Mary, who are also dating.  Not much else to say about this household for now.  Moving on...


Starting from the right is Evan Fogel.  His son Keith and his wife Carlie (Purdue) Fogel.  Keith just recently aged to teen.  I haven't decided what to do with him yet.  They own a bakery.


Okay, starting from the left is Lyle Landis.  Sitting with him is his girlfriend Rosa Lothario.  On the other couch is Ricky Westbrook.  Lyle and Ricky haven't been in the neighborhood for very long.  Rosa just recently moved in.  Ricky is dating Kaci Pancakes.


Alrighty, starting on the left is Dillon Pancakes, next to him is his sister Kaci.  On the other couch is Chandler and his wife Paisley (Jones) Pancakes.  Kaci is dating Ricky Westbrook next door and Dillon has a crush on Candy Behr.


Meet Rocco Lothario and his wife Skye (Goth) Lothario.  They are expecting their first baby.

Oasis Springs


This is the Landgraab family.  Starting on the right is Daxton, his son Jace and his daughter Braelyn.  In the chair is his sister Veronica.  Veronica is dating Wolfgang Munch.  Daxton and his wife Krystle recently divorced.  He has a teen daughter Hannah who is currently living across the street with the Nobles because she was so upset over the divorce.


This is the Noble family.  Starting on the left is Lark, her brother Tobias is next to her and their half-alien sister Nebula next to him.  Their father Alex is on the next couch with his wife Alisha (L'Amour) Noble and their eldest son Aaron.  The girl in the chair is Aaron's girlfriend Hannah Landgraab.  Aaron and Hannah had just started dating when her parents got a divorce and Alisha invited her to stay at the house.


Starting in the chair is Alisha Noble's twin brother Isaias L'Amour.  On the couch is his wife Tara (DaSilva) L'Amour and their twin daughters Aubree and Alyssa.  I'm totally clueless with what to do with this family.  I love them but haven't played them since the twins aged to children.


This is Charlie, Alexander's brother and his wife Buffy (Jones) Goth.  They have triplet daughters that you'll meet next.  I really don't play them anymore since the girls all got married.


Across the street is the first of the triplets Star (Goth) Casey and her new husband Nick.  I haven't played them since the wedding at this point but let me just give you a hint... trouble is brewin'!


Next door is the 2nd triplet Shea (Goth) Castellanos, her husband Zayne and step-daughter Alessandra.  Zayne moved to the neighborhood with his daughter shortly after his wife's death and met Shea.  Once again, haven't played them since the wedding and really not sure what to do with them right now.


The 3rd and last of the triplets is on the left, her name is Suri (Goth) Lothario.  Next to her is her husband Angelo and his brother Dominick.  In the chair is Dominick's girlfriend Kaylie Jones.  Not much going on in this house right now... but there will be soon.


 Next door is Zander Zest and his new wife Julia (Hanchett) Zest.  Julia is the foster sister of Nick Casey.  Not much going on here other than the recent wedding.


On the other side is Zander's younger brother Xavier and his fiance Ashley Jones.  They just got engaged.



This is the only ghost in the neighborhood Dwight Carter.  He used to live in a big house with a family in Oasis Springs but after they all died in the epidemic he moved to this smaller house in Windenburg.  I haven't decided what to do with Dwight but he will be in some upcoming chapters!


This is Sierra Fogel and her roommate Dayton Weller.  Sierra used to live in the Goth mansion with her uncle Alexander and family but was so distraught by her parents deaths in the epidemic that she made the crazy decision to move in with Dayton shortly after meeting him.  There is no romance going on there... yet?


This is Krystle (Purdue) Landgraab.  Recently divorced from Daxton Landgraab.  At first he let her stay in the mansion but then he caught her with a guy in the middle of the night just outside of the kids bedrooms and kicked her to the curb.  She's miserable because all she ever wanted was to live in a mansion and now Daxton has taken that away from her.  I don't actually play her anymore but I decided to put her in this post so you could meet her.


Kendall Goth recently moved in with her boyfriend Paulo Rocca.  They live with 3 other sims but I don't play any of them.  Kendall's parents and younger brother died in the epidemic.  Yet another household I don't know what to do with right now.  Do you see a pattern?  LOL 

You're pretty much caught up.  I didn't give all the sims lineage because it got way too wordy and I figured nobody would remember that much information anyway.  You're ready to start on the chapter where I changed the rotation from just documenting what was going on in the houses to actively creating a story for them...
