Hey guys! Yes, I'm still around. Between getting multiple sinus infections and working, I've been pretty busy. I had planned to play more over winter break, but I started playing the game Subnautica, and it was very addicting and so I'd pretty much been playing that non-stop until I completed it. (Super fun by the way, I'll probably playthrough it again.)
I went to load these guys up today and I noticed that I never finished writing this chapter up. I've had it ready since Thanksgiving, oops. I don't like playing too far ahead of what I have pictures for because then I feel overwhelmed at the thought of writing. So, sometimes I stop playing until chapters are written lol. So, hopefully I'll be able to load the game up one day this week so I can play some more!
Note: this chapter has a lot of birthdays and makeovers etc. because of that, so I will be kind of speeding through the writing so that I can try to get more quality and interesting chapters out soon. So brace yourselves, lol.
Despite what it looks like, this is not the same image as the one on the cover. In fact, it's not the same as many images in this chapter that look similar.
But, if you remember from last chapter, Eve and Gael had a son and this is a matriarchy so we need a girl.
Gael: Another baby so soon, but we just had Marvin not too long ago.
Eve: Yeah, but I think this one is a girl! I can just feel it!
Gael's adult birthday came very quickly, and even Anastasia was there to help celebrate.
Grandpa Lucas is definitely a big help with Marvin and takes care of him when Gael and Eve are busy.
Of course, he also caught himself and part of the house on fire, but he's normally helpful.
Christmas time in game is one of my favorites. I love decorating the tree as a family and opening presents.
Speaking of - I hope all of you had an amazing Christmas! And if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you enjoyed whatever holiday you do celebrate! <3
It's time to see if Eve's prediction was correct!
Nope, it's baby boy #2. His number is 52 and so the 52nd name was Gabriel!
Once Gabriel was placed in his crib, Eve went to try for another baby immediately.
I don't normally do this because I don't want multiple toddlers, but I have a feeling she's going to be stubborn about having a girl.
Gabriel's toddler birthday arrived quickly - but that's what happens when you're taking care of a toddler and an infant.
I assure you he's a he, he just grew up into girl hair.
The same night is also Marvin's birthday. He ages up into the exact hair I wanted for him, but questionable clothing.
Post makeover, the boys both look much better.
I was really hoping Hailey would get to live to see who the next heiress is going to be. But, I guess not! :(
Baby #3 is officially on the way! Could it be a girl?
Nope. It's another boy. Baby #3 rolled only 18 and his name is Esteban.
Another pregnancy confetti picture in the mint green bathroom. I suppose I could have switched it up and had her take the pregnancy in different bathrooms, but oh well.
Gael: ANOTHER?! We just had three boys extremely close to one other. Don't you think we can stop there? Bend the rules a little, let one of them be heir. I mean, Gabriel did grow up into a ponytail.
Eve: It's a little late for that, I'm already pregnant. Besides, the rules are STRICT matriarchy, so there is no option for anything but a girl given birth to by me.
The whole time the reaper was there with Luke, Marvin sat over here and played chess.
Esteban has become a toddler, meaning I now have two toddlers in the house. Oh boy.
At least he has the angelic trait, that's always a plus.
And it does make it all worth it to see Gabriel and Esteban play together.
Hi Luke! I see you've come to visit our toybox. How is life on the other side?
Luke: I'm playing with my dinosaur, her name is Cera, I can't talk right now.
Baby #4 is about to make their appearance into the world! Will it be a girl?!
Nope. Baby #4 is yet another boy. And to top it all off, I had to click the die 96 times to get his name. His name is Miles.
By pregnancy 5, neither Eve nor Gael seem very thrilled. They just seem like a "oh, this again" type reaction.
Remembrance Day is upon us again, so Eve visits the mausoleum to mourn her ancestors.
Then, while in her bathrobe, she completes her Master Mixologist aspiration.
Up next I have her work on World-Famous celebrity, because this was around the time I had first gotten Get Famous.
I LOVE these two boys. And I LOVE the wabbit tablets. It's basically free child care.
Note: don't try this at home.
Gabriel's birthday has arrived! He's really cute, and might be my favorite so far.
However, with that trait and aspiration, now I"m not so sure.
I wasn't originally going to use strawberries to force a girl, because I felt like it was cheating. But I was really tired of pregnancies, so I finally caved and Eve ate a fistfull of strawberries.
After about a day without a toddler, Miles grows up and joins Esteban in toddlerhood.
I don't know why I decided to put glasses on him, I just thought it was cute and fitting at the time. Looking back at it now, a few months later, I'm not sure I really liked it.
If the strawberries worked, our heiress is about to be born!
THEY WORKED! IT'S A GIRL!
After rolling 47 times, her name is Joselyn.
Joselyn was a pretty good baby, and her baby days went by quickly. Mainly because I was taking care of all of her older brothers.
Joselyn is very cute, and I think it's fitting she got the clingy trait because she's the youngest of five and the only girl, so I can imagine she'd be a little clingy to Mom.
See, I wasn't kidding when I said there were lots of birthdays. It's now Esteban's birthday.
Esteban is really cute, I have to admit. He reminds me of his Dad.
And it's time for us to have our first teenager in the house! That's right, Marvin is growing up!
Marvin does not look thrilled to be a teenager, but then again, look at what he grew up into.
Post make-over, Marvin looks a lot better. Though, I'm starting to have second thoughts on his clothing choices.
The next evening, it's time for Miles to grow up too!
He aged nicely, he's very cute.
So, I'm not sure why is eyes look really squinty all of a sudden, I thought it was just this picture but...
... even in this one they seem squinty. Weird.
That's where we'll leave this chapter. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope to have another chapter out very soon! In the meantime, check in with me over at BoolProp or on my Twitch Stream!
Hopefully I'll be able to get another chapter out before winter break ends, but most likely my chapters will remain spaced out during the school year.
The Kennedy Legacy is the first legacy that I created after purchasing the seasons expansion pack. It is also the first legacy I have kept score in for TS4.

Upon the birth of a sim, I will be using a random number generator to generate a number between 1 and 100. I will then click the randomize name button that many times and select the name that it lands on. So, the name of all sims will be totally random.
Note: in the case of a duplicate name, I will click the dice an extra time and use the next unused name.
