Becker #2: Teens

Dylan: I love coming home to the greeting I get. One or other of the twins comes and gives me a great big hug.

Jason has been joining me in the green house to learn about gardening. We've spent so much time in here that I now have a Silver badge in gardening and Jason has a Bronze badge.

At Jason's birthday party I over heard Sarah asking Jason about where babies came from . I'm not sure what his answer was but I wouldn't be surprised if he told her something outrageous.

Jason loves birthday cake, he may prefer blowing out candles more I 'm not sure.

Jason was too busy dancing at his birthday party I couldn't get a great photo of him.

The friend of Jason's that is always over is Jennifer Darga. They seem to do everything together.

Jason spends most of his spare time in the garden. He now has a Silver badge in gardening.

Sarah didn't want' a birthday party she just wanted to enjoy being a teenager.

Jason asked Jennifer out on a date but by the end of it they decided that though they had a great time together friends was all they would be.

Jason decided to go to University early, he had 6 scholarships lined up. He was so excited about it that I wasn't able to get a photo of him as he ran to the taxi to take him to Sim State University. He will be joining his cousins Kevin Becker and Andrew Nova.

Pitts: Family Life

Darcy: We've been able to get the twins into the private school that my sisters and I went to. They look so cute in their uniforms.

There are always friends over after school, David and Catherine Flylar are always around. I guess twins like to hang out with twins.

I'm always cooking dinner for more than just the family. There are always a few more around the dinner table.

Birthday time. The twins wanted to blow out their candles together.

At their birthday party Abigale spent a lot of time playing video games with her uncle Evan.

Abigale is really a knowledge sim. At the moment she is fascinated with plants.

The twins spend a lot of time playing together. Sometimes it is very friendly....

Sometimes Aiden like to pick on his sister.

Abigale never lets Aiden get away with much for long. She will always get her revenge.

Nova: Growing Up

Andrew brought one of his cousins, Catherine Flylar over to play after school. He always seems to have someone join him at home after school.

I've been working with Andrew to make sure he stays fit. My best friend Faith's twins aren't in the best of shape.

We had some family and friends over for dinner to celebrate Andrew's birthday.

Andrew was more focused on the cake and the pork chops, but he did have to wait for all of us to blow out the candles.

We figured it was time Andrew went to the private school that Ethan, Evan and I went to. We invited the headmaster over for dinner.

Like my father and me before him Andrew has taken a liking to playing in the dirt. Andrew built a green house in the backyard so he could grow his own tomatoes. He soon had a bronze badge in gardening.

Andrew and I had a long conversation over breakfast one morning. We talked of career's and the idea of Andrew going to University early. He's a bright kid so I think he'll do alright. Faith's son Kevin will be going as well so he won't be alone.

Andrew has always had a creative flare so he invited a friend over and offered her a makeover. I found out when he came over that her mother and I had hung around together at High School.

Tina was thrilled with the makeover. Andrew really is good at this makeover stuff. Tina was so happy with it she asked Andrew on a date. What was a romance sim to say......

I gather Andrew had a great time with Tina but nothing serious came of it.

My little boy is now off to Sim State University.

Flylar: Birthdays, Birthdays, Birthdays

Ethan: Lily was doing her daily gardening when she went into labor. Thankfully I was home from work.

I couldn't believe it, we had twins. Lily had deliberately avoided cheesecake because of the rumors about twins. I guess we have one more child than planned. Lily is thrilled, both of our twins have blond hair and green eyes just like Lily, David was born first and then Catherine.

Once we had the twins settled Lily went back to her vegetable plot and soon had a silver badge in gardening.

My mum has finally made it, she became the Law and is now a permanent platinum sim.

Lily is such a wonderful mum, she's been spending time teaching Tara. We bought her a mini oven so she could learn to bake.

My mum has also been great about teaching Tara. Tara is always asking us to teach her something new.

The twins are growing so fast. It was soon birthday time.

We've managed to teach the twins skills together. Mum and I taught them how to walk.

Lily and mum had the pleasure of potty training the twins.

And Mum and Lily taught them how to talk.

With everything going on with the twins I completely forgot about mum's birthday. She didn't really mind. She's just so happy to have her grandkids around.

It was also time for the twins to have another birthday. We didn't' have a party just a couple of cakes .

Catherine and David are such a joy to have around and the love to just play.

Lily and I are able to spend some time together now that the kids are a bit older. When we have the kids in bed we often go down to the basement to do some bowling.

It's not just the twins that play together. Tara and Catherine are often running around the house playing cops and robbers.

Tara hasn't lost her quest for knowledge, Lily is now teaching her all about gardening. She should soon have a bronze badge.

Mum has been working on her charisma skills. Tara will be part of the debating team in no time.

One last birthday for now. Tara is almost all grown up.
