The family

[Image: Screenshot-465.jpg]

Rachel Stevens and Michael Woodward met in college. It was not love at first sight. Michael kept laughing at the clumsy bespectacled Rachel but soon after the break between freshman and sophomore year, Rachel got rid of her glasses and Michael dropped his frat guy attitude. The rest is history, as they say, and they got married right after they graduated.

One of their first steps into married life was to look for a house where they could raise their family and grow old together. The perfect house was found in Sunset Valley. It used to be the old lighthouse and the guardian's home. Many repairs were needed but the couple knew instantly that this place had great potential and would eventually make a great family home. However, their enthusiasm was soon marred by sad news: they would never be able to conceive children by natural means. Needless to say this cast a shadow on Michael and Rachel’s happiness. The repairs on the old home ceased instantly and all their money and energy was spent on trying to find a solution.

After five years of unsuccessful attempts, they heard of Dr. Dixon's unprecedented success rates in medically assisted procreation. So they headed to Canada to meet Dr. Dixon; it was their last hope.
Long story short, Dr. Dixon turned out to be not only a great physician but also a deeply genial woman. Soon after, Rachel had the delightful surprise to learn that she was pregnant. Not with one baby, but with three!

Elation mixed with panic: three babies? Triplets? No way!!! While Rachel was hyperventilating and pacing the room back and forth, wringing her wrists, Michael phoned his in-laws.
Carol and Ned Stevens were overjoyed to hear the good news and they immediately offered their assistance during the pregnancy.

The nine months went like a charm - or so is the official version - but I will let experience or imagination do the rest. The charming triplets Katherine, Edward and Johanna were born!
Still feeling unable to cope with a triple maternity, Rachel pressed her parents to stay some more, which they accepted heartily.

Now came a problem; the house was still undecorated and Rachel, who loves patterns to distraction, could not bear the blank walls anymore.

Will you take up the challenge and help this family finally be completely happy?

The Sims are not available for download for Sims 2, but I am sure your Sims 2 players are clever enough to make them your self.
The house
The house is downloadable for both Sims 2 & Sims 3. You may build the house your self of course and there is overview pictures here that should allow it. The house is build in a fully patched game. The house is base-game compatible in both versions.
