Sophia thought that diapers and bottles were behind her, but when she met Thomas, he charmed he so that she couldn't imagine not adding him to thier family and she was glad that she did.

Little Jack had made a friend in neighbor Elsa Cedar. And it was no wonder he was starting to take an intrest in the girls...

Sister Madeline also held a teen job in the cullinary field, but found herself more into meeting and spending time with the boys than working to reach TOC.

Wow you had a busy week! Congrats on not only fulfilling Sophia's 1st IW of 10 kids, but also Joseph's LTW/TOC! Yeah you!!
The kids are adorable and they're going to make beautiful grandchildren for Sophia.. I think 20 is a good round number...
Seriously, if you do go for the 20 no better way to do it than with the family with 10 kids!!

what a fabulous update, all the kids grew up well and there are some real cuties there.
Love the family photo, it's so hard to get them altogether isn't it?!
congrats on the ltw- always great to get that one in the bag.

Wow, what a high-achieving group! Not a slacker in the bunch! I love the family photo, too--what do you do to get those?

Sally said...

Great family photo and congrats on the 10 kids IW!

Infinity-Nevermore said...

Wow. Ten kids. That's amazing. I've got nine kids for one sim, but since he was also the head of my Toddlermania challenge, he already had a head start. And that's the closest I've ever gotten. The family photo looks great, and I'm jealous of all the good looking sims.

SirenPrincess said...

Your sims look so awesome. How do you get them so cute? I really love Jack.

I can't believe how many birthdays you had in one week. It must be hard to balance. I guess that's one of the things I have to look forward to as I progress in my challenge.
