Hello everybody! Britt here on behalf of Evie and Alex (but when are they ever here on their own behalf), who are busy canoodling and celebrating their wedding anniversary. Gosh, I can't believe my babies have been married for a whole year! Happy anniversary you two! Wishing you many many more years of joy and adventure together ♥.
But it does get me thinking that we really do need to start speeding things up a bit or we'll never get anywhere. And I am excited for what adventures lie ahead for the family and to watch sweet baby Lucas grow up. So on that note I apologize for vanishing yet again, life never really did settle down like I thought and hoped it would. But hopefully it will do so now for at least a couple months, now that Christmas is over and winter is here in full force. Lazy days curled up under a blanket and playing sims sound perfect. But anyway, enough about me, you're here for the Ellison-Warren bunch so let's get to it! Though not much has happened in their lives, you haven't missed much. But Evie's family has a couple real doozies for us, so we'll check in with them, too! Gotta get all caught up, bring the year to a close and let the new one begin.
Now last we saw Alex was about to be hitting the road with his hockey team as the main season was rapidly approaching. And Evie was about to release the album she created with her brother Nolan, and her friend Julianne and they were beginning to plan the album tour.
Hockey is going pretty well for Alex. The team is doing pretty well overall, and he's certainly helped them get there. There's even a good chance they'll make the playoffs this year. Which of course is fantastic for him, to make the playoffs your first year on a team (or ever really) is great. Of course it will extend his season (and the tiem away from his family) and he'll probably be even busier than the regular season, but we'll all be so happy for him if he makes it.
Evie's album is out now, and unsurprisingly it's doing fantastic, topping all the charts. The tour is set for the spring when, if he doesn't make playoffs, Alex's season will be winding down. But we know he's going to make it, so Alex's sister and Evie's best friend Katie will be spending some time in Moonlight Falls and in their house so she can help with the baby and maybe take him around to visit his parents every so often. And of course they'll both visit home as much as possible. Alex isn't really gone for more than a week or so at a time anyway, Evie won't have as much luck.
Which was a big factor in her next decision. Though I'm sure the decision will come as a big surprise, I know she revealed it to me MONTHS ago and I'm still not totally over it. I understand, but am sad and shocked. In releasing the album and announcing the tour, Evie announced that it would be the last; the last album and the last tour. Her music career was coming to an end.
And since it's Evie and she's not exactly the type to just sit around and do nothing so she's already planned her next move and a new career. She's going to be a doctor, something she can do close to home. How she got to doctor from singer, I'll never know, but that's Evie for you. I'm sure she'll be the best doctor there is. And in the fall she'll be going to university to study medicine. And I must admit I'm pretty excited for Evie's adventures in university. Though I doubt she'll be too wild like I'd kind of like to see. She does have a husband and a baby to keep her honest. That's probably not really her type anyway, but I'm sure she'll still have an interesting college experience.
I guess that leaves baby Lucas. Who is really more of a toddler now. Not really much to share about him, he's still just growing (way too fast!) and learning to walk and talk. Though he's definitely getting better at those now! And he's still pretty much glued to his xylophone and still getting lessons from mom. Even if her music career is coming to an end, she's still raising a little musical prodigy and offering him the best expertise she can.
Well that's all for the Ellison-Warren household, onto Evie's trainwreck of a family. Oh but where I do I start. The begginning? Oh I don't even know what that is anymore, it's all a blur. Maybe I'll just draw names out of a hat. Or... worst to best. Yeah, worst to best, I don't believe in starting out a new year on a bad note, so we'll climb up into the new year rather than snowball down into the year.
So... oh... I don't know if I can do this. Oh this one stings so bad. Gah my heart, I think it's about to shatter again. I'd like to note that I've only ever made 2 deals with my sims #1 Alaina and Keenan (Evie's parents) are to NEVER EVER split up. Every relationship before them ended horribly, and I couldn't bear for that to happen to them. #2 Evie and Alex are NEVER EVER EVER EVVEERRRR to split up. Well, Alaina and Keenan split up. It's been quite a while and I'm still furious and heartbroken. Don't ask me for details, I don't know what happened. Only Alaina and Keenan know and they're not sharing. In fact they didn't even tell anybody they seperated. Poor Evie pieced it together on her own. She noticed that every time she went to visit her parents, her father wasn't there, even when he was supposed to be. "Oh he's just busy" or "he's just hanging out with the guys" was always her mom's claim. But Evie eventually found out that he had moved in with a friend of a friend... or something (I don't know the relationship really). My brain stops trying to proccess what happened there. I don't want to think of the possibilities why Keenan moved out to live with some random woman. I don't see him cheating or anything, but I didn't see this happening at all. And I'm sure you can imagine that Evie is pretty mad at her parents right now and is barely talking to either of them.
But as one relationship ends, another begins. And boy is it ever a shocker too! Apparently Mae is now confused about her sexuality or something, because she's married to some guy... who I find kind of creepy TBH (Branch Timbley or something IDK...can't keep track). Yeah, you read that right, MARRIED. They dated for like a day, seriously! And boom they were married. So I really don't know what THAT'S about. I thought maybe Mae was just being like a golddigger or something (though I would have hoped she's better than that, but it's Mae, who knows), but her husband isn't the only guy she's taken interest in. Since marrying him. She's also tried to make moves on Alex. I so WISH I was kidding. Naturally Alex turned her down, and not very politely either. And Evie knows about it. And if you asked Evie she doesn't even have a twin sister. They are completely and totally done.
And then there's Nolan. Who currently is seeing 2 different girls. He's definitely way more serious about one, so I don't even know why he's seeing the other at all. And at least the one he's most serious about (Deedee Wynn, I'm sure you've seen her if you've visited Moonlight Falls.) is definitely not on the same page about seeing other people. And she knows, and she's not impressed. But she's still forgiven him anyway. Because, if nothing else, they're going to have a baby to raise together.
And as much as I don't approve of how Nolan is going about these relationships... not gonna lie... I'm really excited for him to be a father. He'll be such a great daddy, he's totally amazing his nephew. And... I am pretty excited for him to be passing on those genes lol.
Phew, well, I guess that's it for now. I really *really* hope to be back soon with more updates for you all, and to stop by a lot more in 2018. From me and my sims to you and yours, we wish you a very happy and safe new year.
