Friday December 11th was the one-year anniversary of this blog! When I logged on to WordPress that morning and was greeted with the achievement my reaction was… already???
I can’t believe it’s been one year since I’ve been playing with and writing about the Sloane Family and I’m only on Generation 4! This has been quite an achievement for me since I usually cast aside Sim families I play with after a couple days because I end up bored. I guess those Sloane women are so interesting that I am compelled to continue their story.
When I started this blog, my boyfriend was the only reader and now I have 78 awesome followers, all of whom I’m grateful for having stumbled across my newbie blog and staying for the ride. I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments as all your support and feedback has given me confidence in my storytelling ability and my writing.
As a gift to you all, I’ve compiled a set of “outtakes” from each generation. These are screenshots that I thought were funny or interesting but weren’t included in the story because I couldn’t figure out a way to fit it in the story where it would make sense with the plot. I hope you all enjoy them and once again thank you for all your support. There’s so much more to come on The Sloane Family Legacy.
Our founder, Ariana Sloane, inspired by the artwork at the museum.
Eating burgers downtown on a sunny afternoon. Beats eating cereal for lunch again.
Ariana: Don, I’m preggers okay! Stop smiling this is serious!
Ariana: Sure come on in Ray, but first, let’s take a selfie!
Baby Adrienne’s afraid of the ceiling. Or maybe she’s afraid of Mummy’s snuggling.
Ray was electrocuted twice when I made him fix the stereo. I didn’t know I needed to make him wait before trying again.
So he died and when Grimmy came for him, Ariana got to begging for his life.
The Grim Reaper gave him another chance since he just got married and had his first baby, Bree.
Daddy’s girl Bree always gave Daddy Ray a big smile.
Don was quite broken up after Adrienne told him off. She almost felt bad, but he deserved it.
Bree’s original look when she became a teen. To me, a pink dress didn’t suit her and I didn’t want her to have the same hairstyle as Ariana so she got a makeover.
Sebastian was originally interested in Adrienne… until he met Bree.
I swear Adrienne was supposed to be a model. Check out her “blue steel”.
Bree giving Sebastian a hickey! Get a room you two!
Not sure what Bree was trying to do here but she looks hilarious!
Adrienne proposing to her first husband Carmelo
Looks like no one was happy to celebrate Christopher’s birthday.
When Ray died, Ariana decided to try to flirt with the Grim Reaper this time. She probably should have stuck to begging.
Sebastian serenading his soon to be fiancee. Those two were so cute!
Nothing better than an early morning woohoo in the observatory for Sebastian and Bree.
Daddy’s girl, Danielle, learns some dance moves from her pop.
Bree’s not happy to find out that Christopher and his wife Chloe have made the observatory their alone time spot as well.
Ray gives his stressed out daughter some advice about managing parenting and work.
Danielle had an awkward moment as she was becoming a teen.
Danielle: When can we leave this place already! These bugs are eating me alive!
Bree: No more brownies Felix! You’ve already had two!
Is Danielle dusting her own finger to get fingerprints???
Aileen: She got me locked up and she stole my hairstyle. I’ll make Officer Sloane pay!
These two are so cute
Looks like Ma didn’t die in prison because here she is on Dani and Stephan’s first date. Dun, Dun, Dun!
Bree wasn’t the only one to walk in on Dani and Stephan under the sheets.
Bree: Oh Felix do you have to eat like that?!
Dani’s cousins Bentley and Phoebe are all too excited to hang out with her.
Clay is trying to feel baby Gemma kick
What kind of doctor takes out someone’s heart during a c-section??? Stephan looks mortified.
Ethan cheating in order to beat his sister, the chess master.
Three generations of Sloane women all in the same room. Bree’s ghost at the computer, Baby Gemma sleeping, and Danielle eating strawberries to make baby Leni a girl.
Nothing ends true love, not even death.
Baby Leni refuses to take a bottle from her Uncle Felix.
A rare and tender moment between Gemma and Leni at Phoebe’s wedding.
Gemma totally lost it on some random dude.
Good thing Cousin Bentley was there to put her in her place. Maybe if he was around more in her childhood she’d be less spoiled.
He made her apologise but by the look on her face she obviously didn’t mean it.
Felix nearly died while trying to grill hamburgers on the recently bought grill.
Good thing Dani came to the rescue.
