Peterson - Round 2

Jessica Peterson (adult) Fortune, Criminal


Jessica's fulfilled wishes:  Talk to Clarence, Flirt w/ Clarence, Ask on Date,

Jessica's day started just like any other... with Shannon Todd on  her mind.  She couldn't wait to talk to him! As usual, though, he had an excuse about why he couldn't make it over

Then she met HIM.  The man of her dreams!  Helloooooo Clarence!

 Jessica really felt they hit it off.  He kept thinking of excuses to stay...

 Until Jessica couldn't think of a reason for him to leave...

Jessica's fulfilled wishes: Invite Shannon Over, Gain creativity skill, Earn $5000, Gain cooking skill

She woke up feeling guilty though.   What would Shannon say?  Jessica knew she'd have to make a clean break of it.  She just didn't know what she'd say yet.

Sitting down at the computer, she started blogging about her tough decision between Shannon & Clarence. 

 When Clarence popped by, saying that he missed her... Jessica knew her decision was made!

Jessica's fulfilled wishes:  Classic Dance, Buy living room chair, Buy sculpture, Talk to Shannon
Clarence's fulfilled wishes: Gain cooking point, Gain cleaning point, Meet New Sim, Flirt

"Good morning beautiful," Clarence said as he kissed Jessica. "What are we up to today?"

Jessica smiled.  "I really wanted to work on my skills for that raise coming up."

"Sounds good.  I need to brush up on some stuff, as well." 

Jessica & Clarence contentedly spent the day puttering around the house.

Jessica's fulfilled wishes: Creativity level 5, Buy $2500 sculpture, Kiss/Makeout w/ Clarence
Clarence's fulfilled wishes: Cleaning level 3, Cooking level 3,  Talk to Jessica, Propose

It didn't take long for Clarence to know that Jessica was the woman of his dreams.  In a whirlwind, romantic gesture, he dropped to one knee and proposed.

Jessica was thrilled!  She just wished she'd met Clarence years earlier before kissing all those other frogs.

Jessica's fulfilled wishes: Gain creativity skill,
Clarence's fulfilled wishes: Throw Wedding Party, Marry Jessica, Gain body skill

Pregnant, Jessica thought sourly.  She couldn't believe she'd wound up pregnant.  If she'd wanted a rugrat running around, she would've gotten pregnant when Armand had asked her to have his babies.  But, she guessed it was different with Clarence... maybe...

 Clarence insisted on a rushed wedding. He wanted to baby to have his name.  He couldn't wait!

Right before finishing packing, Jessica jumped online and updated her status to married with a baby on the way. 

So long trailer park!  Clarence was moving them up and out of here!

Newsom - Round 2

At his age, Gavin never thought he would be adopted. He is grateful for the chance at a real family and has come to fiercely love his brothers and sisters. In fact, Gavin couldn't imagine life without them. He decided long ago that he would do whatever it took to protect and care for them!

Gavin (teen) Fortune, Business
Ginger (teen) Family, Golden Anniversary
Gallagher (child), Gabriella (child)
Garrett (toddler), Georgia (toddler)


Gavin's fulfilled wishes: Get Athletic job, Body skill 1, Mechanical skill 1, Charisma level 1
Ginger's fulfilled wishes: Mechanical skill 1, Friends w/ Sally
Gallagher's fulfilled wishes: Jump rope, Talk, Gain skill
Gabriella's fulfilled wishes: Play on playground, Talk to Etsu
Garrett's fulfilled wishes:
Georgia's fulfilled wishes: Gain logic skill

Gavin had seen his siblings down to the school bus, but had hung back.  He needed a job to pay the rent. Scanning through the paper, he saw the athletic position available.  And he needed to skip a few days of school because the twins Garrett & Georgia needed some care.

Ginger got home from school and Gavin was gone.  The twins were crying and all the responsibility fell on her.  Sometimes it scared her...  she didn't have a mom... what if she didn't do this right...   

Gavin said that it was important they stayed strong, but she wasn't sure she could...

Gavin's fulfilled wishes:
Ginger's fulfilled wishes:
Gallagher's fulfilled wishes: Jump rope, Play on playground, Waterballoons
Gabriella's fulfilled wishes: Do homework, Play on playground, Talk to Etsu, Waterballoons
Garrett's fulfilled wishes:
Georgia's fulfilled wishes: Be tickled, Be snuggled

Gavin wanted to make sure that everyone had their breakfast before shipping them off to school.  Ginger asked if he was going to make it school today.  Gavin shook his head no, and tried to ignore the glare Ginger was pinning on him.

Gavin knew Ginger was mad at him.  She didn't think he should be skipping school.  But how else was he supposed to make this work?  The twins would be going to school soon, but until then... someone had to be at home with them...

Besides, how was he supposed to go to school when he could barely stand up straight...

Ginger came home from school again and tried to shove down her frustration and pain.  How did moms DO this?

The twins always needed changing and bottles were going rancid on the floor.  Gabriella & Gallagher needed help with their homework & books read to them at night.

...and Gavin was about to get kicked out of school.  "Ginger, Mrs. Crumplebottom said that if you don't show up tomorrow that she's going to talk to your boss.  They're going to get you fired."

"What am I supposed to do, Ginger? I have to take care of our family!"

Ginger thought a moment.  "You go to school tomorrow.  I'll take a sick day.  We'll make this work," she promised.  

Gavin's fulfilled wishes: Jump rope, Invite Over
Ginger's fulfilled wishes: Talk to Andre, Play w/ Andre, Friends w/ Andre, First Kiss
Gallagher's fulfilled wishes:
Gabriella's fulfilled wishes:
Garrett's fulfilled wishes: Played with, Age well
Georgia's fulfilled wishes: Played with, Snuggled, Age well

Ginger felt so rumpled & frustrated after a day at home with the twins.  When Andre stopped by drop off her homework, she felt so thankful to be talking to someone her age...

She couldn't help it... she kissed him.

Happy birthday Garrett...

Happy birthday Georgia!

Gavin's fulfilled wishes: Jump rope
Ginger's fulfilled wishes:
Gallagher's fulfilled wishes: Jump Rope
Gabriella's fulfilled wishes: Jump Rope
Garrett's fulfilled wishes: Do homework, Waterballoons
Georgia's fulfilled wishes: Waterballoons

Gavin was secretly so happy that the twins were ready for school now!  Life was going to get so much easier!

Gavin peeked his eyes open.  "What are you doing up Georgia? It's midnight," he said looking at the clock.  Georgia had turned the tv on & was holding her stuffed bear.

"Can't sleep," Georgia said.

Gavin glanced over at Ginger, passed out in the recliner.  "Well, go lay in bed anyways.  We all need sleep for tomorrow."

Georgia turned off the tv and quietly went back to bed.  Gavin sighed and rolled over on his back.  He wasn't sure he'd be able to get back to sleep now.  Instantly his thoughts went to Sofia Baldwin.  He hadn't had a chance to see her, let alone call her this week.  He missed her like crazy.  Hopefully she understood...

Gavin's fulfilled wishes: Jump rope, Eat sandwich
Ginger's fulfilled wishes: Eat sandwich
Gallagher's fulfilled wishes: Learn to Study, Jump Rope, Gain skill
Gabriella's fulfilled wishes:
Garrett's fulfilled wishes: Gain skill, Jump rope, Gain skill
Georgia's fulfilled wishes:

Ginger couldn't believe that Gavin had arranged for the headmaster to come for a visit and then took off to work!  Ginger didn't know what to say!  She just knew it was really important to him that all of them make the switch to the private school.  Ginger felt so lame serving refrigerator sandwhiches.  What he must think!

The headmaster had never seen a family in more need than the Newsom's.  Inwardly, he cringed when sweet little Ginger pulled out a plate of leftover sandwhiches.  He knew that he would definitely recommend the scholarship tuitions be awarded to these dear children.
