Range Valley – Round 9 – Dallas

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 3,720!

When we last left the Dallas family, they were expanding again, with Emily and Forest expecting their third child together. Forest, of course, already has two adult daughters, Sadie Bellamy and Maisie Kane, who he had with his first wife, May Jitmakusol.

Emily takes to writing during her maternity leave. Her son is at school, and her daughter is mostly pretty self sufficient.

Jacob gets an A+ at school, and runs intothe house to celebrate!

Emily goes into labour!

The first is a boy they name Joshua! And I’m not sure if I’ve done something wrong with my CC skins? Joshua has one of the new freckly skins I’ve downloaded. However, he is about as dark as his dad, just freckled? I think it’s cute, so that’s fine.

And of course it is twins. So this is little Charlotte.

Forest gets up and gets to looking after the twins while Emily catches up on sleep.

Emily tried to sneak off to work the next morning. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get to go. Forest earns more, and we need the money, so she gets to stay home with the toddler and the two babies. Sorry, Emily.

Apparently, the Dallas family haven’t learned their lesson.

Emily finishes teaching Aimee the last little bits she needs before her birthday. At least things will be easier with her a bit older.

No wonder Forest is so glad to get to work in the mornings. A helicopter ride is quieter than his home.

It’s triple birthday time. First, Aimee grows up into a child.

And the twins have their birthday too.

Here is Charlotte.

And Joshua, who is a serious little cutie.

Jacob brings home Audrey Lee. She’s certainly not impressed with him, whatever he has said, and she won’t stay for his birthday.

One last look at our oldest Dallas boy!

And he scrubs up nicely! He is a Romance sim with the LTW to Woohoo 20 Sims. Please ignore his sister in the window being thrown all the way to Space. Idaho.

And Emily pops, and hangs around in her underwear. At least Jacob is excited that he’s getting another brother or sister.

So is Forest. Also, the default replacements I use are a touch too pale. It is impossible to tell where Emily’s skin starts, and her undies end.

The Dallas couple teach the Dallas babies to walk, just in time for their birthday!

There’s Joshua!

And Charlotte! I like how different the four kids look, so far.

Meanwhile, Jacob has met a nice young lady by the name of Rochelle. They like to moodily hang out on the roundabout together.

(She also gave him his first kiss).

Forest helps Aimee with her homework a lot. She seems to learn a LOT slower than Jacob did. She glitched as a toddler, and I think the smartmilk bonus might have been removed? In any case, I feel like she has Sim Dyslexia or something.

After what feels like a lifetime, Emily goes into labour.

She gives birth to a little girl. They name her Philippa, as Forest’s original surname was Phillips. They’ll call her Pippa for short.

snapshot_a8cbdb2f_490415e0.jpg

The Dallas’ are still very happy together. Forest hasn’t shown any inclination to trade this wife in for a new one, at least. However, Emily wants 10 children… Forest now has seven, Emily has five.

snapshot_a8cbdb2f_0904290e.jpg

It’s Pippa’s birthday!

snapshot_a8cbdb2f_290429d7.jpg

Cute! She looks like Aimee so far, but there’s time.

snapshot_a8cbdb2f_e9041a75.jpg

Aimee studies hard, but it takes her a long time. It is pure stubborn determination that is getting her through it.

And it seems that we might have another little Dallas on the way…
