  1. 1. The Cooke Legacy: Chapter 44 Two is Better Than One by meadowthayer
  2. 2. Welcome back to chapter forty-four of The Cooke Legacy! This chapter is written by Haleigh/meadowthayer. In the last chapter you saw our heir, Robinson, and his siblings graduate college and then you saw how Ryder’s and Rosie’s lives turned out. In this chapter, we will see Robinson and Carmen live out their life together.
  3. 3. Hi everyone! So, as Haleigh has already filled you guys in, I’m now living back home with my Mom’s, Marisa and Quinn. I’m really excited to live out my life with Carmen.
  4. 4. In fact, I am so excited that I didn’t want to waste anytime in inviting my fiancé over to move in with me. Carmen told me after she moved in that she was a popularity sim with a secondary aspiration of fortune! We both have the same secondary aspirations, so that should definitely help keep us out of financial fights. It helps that my family is quite rich as well.
  5. 5. The very next morning, Carmen and I got married outside of the family home. I am so thrilled to be able to call Carmen my wife! Immediately following the ceremony, we decided to have a special little celebration…
  6. 6. …by tossing a football around.
  7. 7. Don’t worry, we eventually got around to sharing our first woohoo together ;)
  8. 8. Alright guys, so here’s the deal. After their first woohoo I heard the lullaby but then after a few sim days she hadn’t got her bump, so I tried moving her out of the lot and onto another one since that typically fixes it, but that didn’t. Then, I happened to notice that her age bar didn’t look like it was any fuller than when she first moved in, and sure enough it wasn’t. In fact, nobody in the house was aging! At first, I thought this was just a glitch in the whole game, but then I loaded another family and they aged just fine. After waiting a month for a response on how to fix it, I finally gave up and decided to just extract Carmen and Robinson with SimPE and remake them. That being said, there will be no more Quinn and Marisa, and Robinson and Carmen will be starting over, sort of like founders.
  9. 9. Also, due to having to remake them in CAS they don’t have exactly the same personalities because of the limited amount of points in CAS and their lifetime wants are different. Robinson’s new personality is 2/8/5/5/5 which is as close to his original as I could get. And his lifetime want is to become a celebrity chef. Carmen’s new personality is 2/8/9/3/3 and her lifetime want is to become mayor. Unfortunately, they have no skill points and no college education. I will not be giving them any money either, they’ll be stuck with the $25,000 they got from CAS. (I guess since it was two of them they got an extra 5k? Idk, but that’s what they had.)
  10. 10. This is the new house that Carmen and I will be living in. It’s not much, but it’s enough for now. Luckily, we were both able to find our dream jobs by Tuesday!
  11. 11. After less than a week of living in our new home, Carmen and I decided that we were financially stable enough to try to have our first child.
  12. 12. In fact, we were so stable that we finally had a second floor built on to our home.
  13. 13. It wasn’t long before Carmen began showing the signs of her first pregnancy. I was so happy for my wife, and for myself of course. I just wished my Mom’s were here to help us out because neither of us had any idea what to expect.
  14. 14. Soon though, Carmen was going into labor and all of the pain and nausea would soon be worth it.
  15. 15. Turns out the reward was twice as good as we thought it would be! That’s right, Carmen and I are the proud parents to twins! We had a baby girl named Savannah who has my red hair and dark skin but her Mommy’s brown eyes. And a baby boy named Shane who has my red hair but has his Mom’s brown eyes and lighter skintone.
  16. 16. The twins were very well behaved and hardly ever cried, so time flew by so quickly and it was already time for them to become toddlers!
  17. 17. The twins grew up wonderfully as you can see and they both look a lot like me! If it weren’t for the eye color, I’d think Savannah was my clone!
  18. 18. It wasn’t long before Carmen and I found out that we were expecting our third child. We both of course were ecstatic.
  19. 19. But before we could meet our newest little one, it was time for our twins to become children. They really grow up way too fast!
  20. 20. A few short hours after the twins birthday, Carmen was going into labor again. This time we welcomed another son. We named him Spencer. He looks a lot like his Mom with the blonde hair and same skintone.
  21. 21. Taking care of Spencer as an infant was much easier than the twins, but I can only hope he’ll be an easier toddler as well.
  22. 22. Spencer was definitely a Mommy’s boy, and even though Carmen hadn’t been feeling very well lately, she made sure to give Spencer as much attention as she possibly could.
  23. 23. It turns out the reason Carmen wasn’t feeling well was she was pregnant again! This is going to be our last baby! *Her pregnancy glitched, she got pregnant the day Spencer aged up but I had to move her out then back in, in order for her to start showing.
  24. 24. I can’t believe that it’s already time for my youngest son to grow up. It seems like just yesterday I was changing his diaper and helping him walk.
  25. 25. The next evening, Carmen went into labor in the front yard with our last child. She gave birth to a baby girl named Sabrina that has a good mix of both of our genetics. I am very happy with my little family. *Her pregnancy glitched a second time, and I had to move her back out and in again. That’s why it took so long for Sabrina to enter the world.
  26. 26. Savannah is thrilled about having a baby sister.
  27. 27. Now that my family has been able to keep their moods up pretty high, my two oldest children have been spending their time working on their skills together.
  28. 28. Time for the twins to become teenagers already? Oh no, it can’t be true. I can’t believe my oldest children are old enough to be in high school! Savannah chose a primary aspiration of knowledge and a secondary aspiration of family. Shane chose a primary aspiration of family and a secondary aspiration of romance. It’s a good thing he’s so handsome, he’ll definitely have no problem with the ladies.
  29. 29. Their primary aspirations definitely shine through. Shane enjoys helping me and his mother out with Sabrina. Where as Savannah prefers to work on her flower arranging badge.
  30. 30. Soon it was time for my youngest child to be a toddler. I’m really sad that my babies have grown up so fast. Before you know it, I’m going to have to stock up on some pepper spray and some ammo for my shotgun.
  31. 31. By child number four, we have taking care of our children down to a science. I’ll admit though, I do wish my Mom’s were here to help. They’d love their grandbabies.
  32. 32. My oldest children keep making me proud, as soon as they get home from school they go straight upstairs and work on their homework together.
  33. 33. Since Spencer doesn’t really have any siblings his age to play with, he wanted me to buy him an easel so he could paint with me. He and I are quickly becoming best friends.
  34. 34. Carmen has finally become the Mayor! I am so happy for her! She told me that now, she was to follow my dream too and become a celebrity chef.
  35. 35. The next evening, I also reached the top of my career. Next, I want to become a World Class Ballet Dancer. I know it sounds strange, but I just think it would be a lot of fun.
  36. 36. After I took a quick shower, we all went downstairs to celebrate Sabrina’s child birthday! She aged wonderfully, I think she looks a lot like her Mom.
  37. 37. I just realized you guys haven’t seen what our house looks like! Well, here is a quick front and back view of the house.
  38. 38. And a quick peek at the floor plans for each floor of the house. As well as a close-up of Creator Haleigh’s favorite place in the house – the entry way!
  39. 39. I feel bad for Savannah and Shane, they both woke up this morning with a bad acne break out. Luckily, I knew of the perfect acne cream since I suffered from acne as a teenager as well.
  40. 40. “Hi Mister Headmaster, I’m Sabrina. My favorite class is geography. Do you guys teach that at your school?” “Why of course Miss Sabrina. It’s my favorite as well.”
  41. 41. I am very pleased that all four of my children were accepted into the very private school that my family has been attending for generations!
  42. 42. After the headmaster left, it was time for us to celebrate my youngest son’s birthday. That’s right, Spencer is becoming a teenager! Spencer decided to be a primary fortune aspiration and a secondary knowledge aspiration. He has a good head on his shoulders so I’m sure he’ll live a fantastic life.
  43. 43. Shane is a very good big brother and he often helps out Sabrina with her homework.
  44. 44. Oh my, it’s already time for Carmen and I to become elders. I guess we’re not as young as we used to be anymore. But, that’s alright, our children are almost completely grown and soon we’ll hear the pitter-patter of our grandbabies feet.
  45. 45. I think that my wife is more beautiful than ever now that she’s an elder. And I’m not too bad looking either.
  46. 46. My children aren’t the only ones working on their skills, I’m working on some for my promotions and I want to be a good influence on them. It helps now that Carmen got high enough in the education career to get us the special bookcase.
  47. 47. Birthday time has arrived for my youngest child. Carmen and I officially have four teenaged children. But, Sabrina aged beautifully. She looks the most like her mother. I’m a little concerned about her choice of primary aspiration though – she picked romance! Her secondary choice was fortune. I hope she knows money and how many relationships you have isn’t what truly matters in life. So, I didn’t want to have to change Sabrina’s hair because I really liked her other hair, but for some reason the mesh for her toddler/child hair broke for my teens-elders so I had to change it. However, Katie if you have it feel free to change it back.
  48. 48. And with that, my family is complete. I am very happy with my small little family and I can’t wait until I can meet my future grandbabies! Head on to the next slides for your choices for heir/ess.
  49. 49. Savannah Cooke Knowledge, Family
  50. 50. Shane Cooke Family, Romance
  51. 51. Spencer Cooke Fortune, Knowledge
  52. 52. Sabrina Cooke Romance, Fortune
  53. 53. I apologize for the lack of pictures, the family kept getting the flu and so it was making it very hard to keep their moods up. Plus for some reason every time they would go to work or school their energy bar would practically go completely red even if it was completely full when they left. Also, I wanted to thank you for being patient with me throughout the problems that the game caused me. I wish I hadn’t had to recreate Robinson and Carmen, but at least their lives turned out good. Anyway, don’t forget to head over to SiMania to vote for your favorite child, and stay tuned to see where Katie takes the family next! Haleigh (meadowthayer)
