OC-GoodacreW01

"Are You There Watcher? It's Me, Becca."

Warnings: religion, fire, slaughtered animals, water infestation, and a toddler hugglefest.

Previously on The Oceanside Project [Sp01] [Su01] [Fa01]
 

Sunday, Day 14
"Fire Starter"

GoodacreW01 001

GoodacreW01 006

Winter arrives to Goodacre's Farm. The animals however seem to be impervious to the winter chill.

GoodacreW01 011

*Pop #1*
The Goodacres are still in the running towards becoming Oceanside's Top Baby Makers.

GoodacreW01 020

Farmer and grocery store owner Owen Goodacre feeds his youngest daughter Holly before tending to the animals and the crops.

GoodacreW01 025

GoodacreW01 032

GoodacreW01 052

GoodacreW01 059

As the sun rises the farm's inhabitants begin their day. Eve, the oldest of the Goodacre children, plays with her favorite toy bunny head.

GoodacreW01 073

Sister Becca, Oceanside's Priest, devout Peteran, and matriarch of the brood, helps middle child Faith to the potty.

GoodacreW01 074

*potty training besties*

GoodacreW01 075

While Faith concentrates...

GoodacreW01 086

Becca heads downstairs to fix the Oceanside staple of shrimp gumbo for breakfast.

GoodacreW01 088

Just as Becca turns her back to get more seasoning the gumbo catches fire!

GoodacreW01 090

Because of her belief of "Watcher Take The Wheel" Becca refused to purchase a fire alarm like every other sim in town. Who will come to her rescue? Owen?

GoodacreW01 106

Owen: Wowza, these coffee beans sure do pack a punch!
OWEN YOUR WIFE IS ON FIRE!!!

GoodacreW01 102

Becca gathers her senses. Knowing that only she can save herself Becca valiantly sprays the fire until the flames subside.

GoodacreW01 108

GoodacreW01 113

GoodacreW01 115

Becca thought she understood all of the Watcher's teachings however she now understands so much more. The Watcher will intervene but only to those sims with enough common sense to value their own lives. Perhaps, Becca muses, the Goodacres should invest in a fire alarm...

GoodacreW01 114

GoodacreW01 125

Owen heads inside for breakfast and dutifully listens to Becca's tale of fire and the revelation she had.

GoodacreW01 128

Owen politely waits until Becca leaves the room before gagging on the burnt meal.

GoodacreW01 135

As he continues his chores Owen is greeted by two of his fellow Garden Clubbers, Tiara Hough...

GoodacreW01 140

and Marilla Robbins who doesn't seem too happy about the expansion of the still locked business district.

GoodacreW01 146

Owen invites the ladies to hang out on the farm while finishes his chores.

GoodacreW01 141

GoodacreW01 145

Owen quickly gathers eggs before they hatch. The barnyard is almost overrun with chickens!

GoodacreW01 150

GoodacreW01 152

GoodacreW01 153

Faith thinks she's helping her Mommy by cleaning the toilet... with her bare hands...
>.>

GoodacreW01 157

It's feeding and changing time for baby Holly.

GoodacreW01 161

GoodacreW01 167

And for Owen it's kick the crap out of the Chicken Farmer time.

GoodacreW01 168

The hell?

GoodacreW01 169

GoodacreW01 170

Becca gives Holly one long last look before she puts her down for her nap. Soon Holly will be a toddler. Where has all of the time gone?

GoodacreW01 171

She's so thankful that they will be blessed with another baby in their happy home. She firmly believes in the Watcher's number one commandment: Go Forth and Multiply!

GoodacreW01 174

While Owen returns to the crops...

GoodacreW01 176

Marilla makes herself at home in the water tank -- in her usual fashion. Little do the residents of Oceanside know the bottled water that they buy from the grocery store actually comes from this tank!

tumblr_noogenkh0F1qk08n1o1_500

GoodacreW01 178

GoodacreW01 186

GoodacreW01 210

Tiara takes this time to hang out with our little exhibitionist. Since Marilla's hire Tiara hasn't had a chance to get to know the newest Garden Club Enforcer. Maybe if she could get Marilla on her side the three girls could out-vote Rocky and Bruce's lame ideas to further the bubble juice empire.

GoodacreW01 197

GoodacreW01 200

Owen has the bright idea to potty train the youngsters using his old, unused milking pails. Some would call that ingenuity -- others would call that laziness.

GoodacreW01 207

They also temporarily removed Becca's flower crafting station to add an outdoor shower in the barn. This way Owen doesn't have to walk all of the way back to the house when he's stinky.

GoodacreW01 212

Eve gleefully sings a nursery rhyme while hanging out in the barn.

GoodacreW01 214

The beans are looking good! Time to harvest them before the winter chill sets in.

GoodacreW01 215

GoodacreW01 218

Cosmetologist Brodie Mason stops by to peruse the Goodacre's paper.

GoodacreW01 225

Hey Brodie, look! It's the animal that gave you the inspiration for your hair color. *gigglesnort*

GoodacreW01 226

GoodacreW01 228

GoodacreW01 229

GoodacreW01 233

GoodacreW01 236

GoodacreW01 239

GoodacreW01 244

After a quick supper Becca turns in for the night.

GoodacreW01 250

Owen comes up with some of his best jokes while talking to the veggies.

GoodacreW01 251

GoodacreW01 253

It's Faith's turn on the milk pail potty.

GoodacreW01 254

*potty training besties*

GoodacreW01 264

Marilla and Tiara help themselves to the Goodacre's good nectar!

GoodacreW01 267

GoodacreW01 274

It has taken Owen all day to do his chores and he still has much more to do.

GoodacreW01 276

Since it's getting late he sends Marilla and Tiara packing...

GoodacreW01 279

and has a quick supper. Little Faith is never too far from her Pa. She wants to take care of the farm just like him when she grows up.

GoodacreW01 287

As Becca wakes up to care for the little one...

GoodacreW01 292

Owen moseys off to bed.

GoodacreW01 007

GoodacreW01 008

*nursing besties*

GoodacreW01 015

GoodacreW01 016

GoodacreW01 018

GoodacreW01 020

GoodacreW01 026

After leaving Faith to potty train...
*Thanks for the tip Agdoren!*

GoodacreW01 032

Becca sneaks into bed to cuddle with her man.

Monday, Day 15
"Birthday Cheesecake"

GoodacreW01 036

The first frost!
*Are the fishies still alive?*

GoodacreW01 040

GoodacreW01 043

GoodacreW01 044

GoodacreW01 045

GoodacreW01 050

Owen's first chore of the day: fixing all of the broken things on the farm.

GoodacreW01 054

Or trying to fix all of the broken things on the farm.

GoodacreW01 059

Sometime during the night/morning Becca had her second *pop*.

GoodacreW01 061

GoodacreW01 067

GoodacreW01 068

GoodacreW01 070

GoodacreW01 048

Faith earns her first skill point ^.^

GoodacreW01 072

GoodacreW01 076

After repairing the tub and the dishwasher Owen calls their friends and their kids over for Holly's birthday party!

GoodacreW01 075

*Dang NPC animals taking up space on my lot.* *grumbles*

GoodacreW01 078

The toddler guests march right in!

GoodacreW01 080

After magically transporting all of the adult guests *grumbles* they head straight for the barnyard -- as per usual.

GoodacreW01 081

Owen takes a moment to freshen Holly up before her big transition.

GoodacreW01 084

Heath's outerwear! <3

GoodacreW01 090

The toddlers groove in front of the stereo.

GoodacreW01 091

Architect Fitz Biltmore can't tell the difference between the pig and artist/journalist Matisse Troubadour! How rude!

GoodacreW01 101

Owen sets the cake up in the barnyard since that's where everyone likes to hang.

GoodacreW01 105

It's time to say good-bye to baby Holly!

GoodacreW01 117

GoodacreW01 124

GoodacreW01 132

GoodacreW01 133

Eeep! It looks as though Holly has been subjected to a Brodie Mason make-over!
Owen: Hon, do you wanna gussy up Little Holly?

GoodacreW01 134

Becca: Can't right now, Hon. I gotta check on the kids!
*sneaks away with a slice of cake*

GoodacreW01 137

GoodacreW01 138

Awwww, Daddy loves you, crazy haircut and all.

GoodacreW01 143

Owen makes his way inside to give Holly a new look.

GoodacreW01 144

Holly Goodacre is a 3-2-8-3-10 Pisces. She's super interested in school, entertainment, travel, and sci-fi (and by super interested I mean 9's in all of those). She inherited her straight hair, chin dimple and love of meat from her Pa, and her freckles and prudish ways from her Ma.

GoodacreW01 145

GoodacreW01 146

GoodacreW01 148

The hugglefest commences! Gavin Biltmore and Piper Mason-Troubadour hug it out.

GoodacreW01 149

Next up, brothers Henry and Antonio Lambswool.

GoodacreW01 150

Becca treats the guests to farm-fresh chicken!

GoodacreW01 151

So long, Señor Chicken.

GoodacreW01 152

*Literally from farm to table*

GoodacreW01 153

Holly is another addition to the Gorgeous Goodacre Girls.

GoodacreW01 156

GoodacreW01 158

tumblr_nr873q7WOh1ql5yr7o1_500

WAY TO GO, EVE!!!!!!

GoodacreW01 159

GoodacreW01 161

I'm not sure if Gwyneth Landgraab is aware that Heath Biltmore is not really a giant teddy bear.

GoodacreW01 162

Twin love with Henry and Bianca Lambswool.

GoodacreW01 163

*I really wish there was a way to call guests to the meal with the farm animals* *grumbles more*

GoodacreW01 164

Day Care worker Cindy Lou Killeen adds her flavor to the water tank.

GoodacreW01 167

Heath makes his first non-relative bestie!

GoodacreW01 168

Heath's brother Aiden huggles with Aria Mason-Troubadour.

GoodacreW01 171

Restaurant owner George Lambswool grabs a slice of yummy cake.

GoodacreW01 173

GoodacreW01 176

Bianca and Little Malcolm Landgraab become friends.

GoodacreW01 180

While the toddlers continue their huggle cuteness Becca sneaks away for a much-needed nap.

GoodacreW01 181

Cutie-face Kenna Biltmore rocks out.

GoodacreW01 183

Holly receives a warm welcome to the toddler club hug from Aria.

GoodacreW01 184

Now that there's a bakery in Oceanside folks will be going there for their birthday cakes instead of asking George to make them. George enjoys his last homemade-by-him slice.

GoodacreW01 185

Poem Mason-Troubadour is still trying to be my favorite of her household.

GoodacreW01 186

I know, it's just too much! Here's Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova with Bianca.

GoodacreW01 196

Whether there's a party going on or not Owen has to get back to the fields and tend the crops. He sure will be glad when the girls are older so he can have some help out here!

GoodacreW01 212

The party was just too much for little Holly.

GoodacreW01 213

Fitz silently watches as his secret crush Minka Yomoshoto walks by. He knows things are hard for her right now. She always looks so sad and upset. He wishes there was something he could do for her.

GoodacreW01 214

GoodacreW01 215

Owen Goodacre, King of The Terrible Party.
* I wonder if the NPC animal's moods add to the party score? Hmmmm... *

GoodacreW01 216

The babies say goodbye to their buddies.

GoodacreW01 217

Thanks for coming Ezra Biltmore and Tabitha Landgraab!

GoodacreW01 220

GoodacreW01 225

Eve uses the potty for the first time on her own ^.^

GoodacreW01 228

GoodacreW01 232

Owen sends treasurer Vivian Landgraab a whopping §6840 in taxes! That might be the highest tax sent!

GoodacreW01 230

GoodacreW01 234

Owen replaces the fish that seem to die at the end of every season :( ...

GoodacreW01 240

GoodacreW01 241

then heads upstairs to give Faith a much needed bath.

GoodacreW01 244

GoodacreW01 247

GoodacreW01 248

Becca's up from her nap.

GoodacreW01 251

OWEN!!!

GoodacreW01 252

Owen: *laughs hysterically*
Me: *sigh*

GoodacreW01 258

GoodacreW01 002

Tuesday, Day 16
"Birthin' More Babies"

GoodacreW01 001

GoodacreW01 003

GoodacreW01 006

GoodacreW01 010

Becca likes to give birth in the kitchen.

GoodacreW01 016

tumblr_nrlbsz0xcx1ql5yr7o3_500

GoodacreW01 025

The first Goodacre twin is ... A BOY!!!!!!

tumblr_mm4qiecDg01ql5yr7o1_500

GoodacreW01 030

The boy child aberration is quickly thrown on the floor for...

GoodacreW01 036

another girl!!

GoodacreW01 038

Becca is pleased as punch with her two new babies!

GoodacreW01 040

Travis Goodacre shares his father's light skin and aqua eyes and has his mother's brown hair.

GoodacreW01 041

Sarah Goodacre shares her mother's tan skin and brown hair and has her father's aqua eyes.

GoodacreW01 043

GoodacreW01 045

GoodacreW01 046

For now the twins are placed in Faith's and Eve's cribs. The Goodacres will juggle rooms around after Eve transitions to a child in the Spring.

GoodacreW01 050

GoodacreW01 053

All of the morning's excitement won't deter his chores. Owen needs to harvest the crops and get them to market.

GoodacreW01 062

GoodacreW01 066

Becca is determined to get the shrimp gumbo recipe right. Let's cross our fingers.

GoodacreW01 070

She did it!

GoodacreW01 072

Owen packs up all of the fruit and veg to sell at the store.

GoodacreW01 075

"You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life..."

GoodacreW01 079

After a quick breakfast with his lovely wife...

GoodacreW01 085

Owen heads out to the store.

GoodacreW01 086

With a small detour.

GoodacreW01 091

Owen is so thankful that Becca changed her mind on owning a fire alarm. As bad as she cooks Owen knew it was only a matter of time before she burned the whole farm down.

GoodacreW01 093

It seems there are still remnants of the last unhappy customer.

GoodacreW01 100

Cadet Sadie Biltmore sure will be glad when they find a new Fire Chief to man the Station so she doesn't have to keep leaving home to ring up these sims!

GoodacreW01 102

Sadie: How dare that bubble juice hustler waltz into my station!
Oh Sadie, if you only knew.

GoodacreW01 104

The fire alarm and a toy for the girls are successfully purchased!

GoodacreW01 113

After horsing around with his buddy George...

GoodacreW01 118

GoodacreW01 119

Owen high-tails it to Goodacre's Grocery Store.

GoodacreW01 124

Owen dons his spiffy new uniform...

GoodacreW01 126

GoodacreW01 125

GoodacreW01 127

and adds new items to the shelves.

GoodacreW01 128

Garden Clubbers Bruce Jelleff...

GoodacreW01 132

and Tiara are the first to shop.
*I don't know why they came holding bags. Game is buggin'.*

GoodacreW01 137

Quirky GC'er Heaven Gallo rounds out the customers.

GoodacreW01 136

Bruce is interested in a crate of Owen's organic oranges.

GoodacreW01 140

GoodacreW01 146

Owen chats up Ms. Gallo. He seems to like her...

GoodacreW01 144

really likes her!

GoodacreW01 150

YOU ARE A MARRIED MAN, SIR!

GoodacreW01 156

OWEN!!!

GoodacreW01 159

One of the things Owen likes best about joining the Garden Club is getting to hang out with all of the pretty fillies.

GoodacreW01 163

Jeez, all we need is Rocky and then the whole GC Mafia will be here.

GoodacreW01 164

GoodacreW01 170

GoodacreW01 172

Woot!

GoodacreW01 173

Owen wants his customers' trust. What better way than to have a sterling reputation!

GoodacreW01 176

GoodacreW01 178

Items are selling mighty fast!

GoodacreW01 180

All in all Goodacre's Grocery Store is doing really well. Owen hopes his kids will work with him in the store when they're old enough. Maybe one will even open a branch of their own in the business district!

GoodacreW01 189

Closing time.

GoodacreW01 194

GoodacreW01 195

Owen restocks what he can.

GoodacreW01 197

^.^

GoodacreW01 200

Back at the farm...

GoodacreW01 201

GoodacreW01 206

Becca resumes her super-mom abilities. With the help of the coffee beans and Owen this last pregnancy was easier than the first three. Becca's ready to have even more!

GoodacreW01 208

You know I have favorites in every house, right? Faith is my Goodacre favorite ^.^

GoodacreW01 212

GoodacreW01 214

The boy demands attention.

GoodacreW01 218

GoodacreW01 219

GoodacreW01 232

Even though he was unexpected Becca thanks the Watcher for granting her a son. Becca just hopes Travis will grow to like pink and yellow because she doesn't want to redecorate.

GoodacreW01 236

Poor Faith! How can your life be so bad?

GoodacreW01 241

GoodacreW01 249

Eve is the first to try out the art table -- Holly's transition present.

GoodacreW01 253

After a quick bath...

GoodacreW01 256

Becca changes into a new rootin' tootin' outfit!
*That I copypasta'd meself* *pats self on back, lulz*

GoodacreW01 262

GoodacreW01 263

Becca offers another chick to the chopping block. Bye-bye, Chicken Little.

GoodacreW01 280

I was wondering why no new eggs were laid or new babies were born! All of the chickens are roosters! Uh boy.

GoodacreW01 283

WHO THE HELL KNOCKED OVER THE TRASHCAN!!!!!!!

GoodacreW01 284

GoodacreW01 285

GoodacreW01 289

Holly discovers her true passion in the Sego blocks!

GoodacreW01 290

It's time for Faith to visit the potty.

GoodacreW01 292

YAAAASSSSS!!!!

tumblr_nry8og7iNJ1ql5yr7o1_500

Two toddlers potty trained in one season!!! Becca and Owen are the shit!!

GoodacreW01 295

Becca cleans up the spilt trash. She blames those pesky wild raccoons.

GoodacreW01 301

GoodacreW01 305

Owen returns and heads straight to the garden. To his surprise Becca joins him!

GoodacreW01 307

And so does Eve! ^.^

GoodacreW01 308

GoodacreW01 312

GoodacreW01 325

After harvesting the couple retreats to their room...

Wednesday, Day 17
"Church Lady"

GoodacreW01 006

Boo-hoo Bunny has been loved.

GoodacreW01 012

Midnight feeding for baby Travis! Owen is ecstatic to have a son. He can't wait to buy Travis his first cowboy boots and teach him how to rope a steer.

GoodacreW01 021

Before heading out to the field Owen gives baby-making another try.
*chimes*

GoodacreW01 027

GoodacreW01 029

GoodacreW01 030

The Goodacre's weeds are getting out of hand. They better get a handle on it or they'll be hit with a Garden Club fine.

GoodacreW01 033

Becca earns cooking enthusiasm in her sleep. Boss.

GoodacreW01 034

GoodacreW01 038

GoodacreW01 039

GoodacreW01 043

Feeding time in the barnyard.

GoodacreW01 047

Becca hurries to bathe and get ready. Today she will give her very first sermon. She's so nervous!

GoodacreW01 056

She's got shrimp gumbo down to a science now!

GoodacreW01 066

Owen belches his agreement!

GoodacreW01 068

Another little Goodacre is on the way.

GoodacreW01 070

GoodacreW01 072

Good luck, Sister Becca!

GoodacreW01 074

For the first time Becca enters Our Gray Lady of Plumbobs Peteran Church as a bonafide priest.

GoodacreW01 077

GoodacreW01 078

A prayer altar was added for those who want to pray privately.

GoodacreW01 079

Becca is pumped. She has been rehearsing her sermon for days. She can't wait to fill Oceanside with the loving Word of The Watcher!

GoodacreW01 083

As she dons her Peteran robes a thought of terror strikes her. What if no one shows? What if Oceanside isn't ready for the Word of The Watcher?

GoodacreW01 084

However there were two residents that said they would be there for her first sermon, Angie Killeen and Fitz Biltmore. She's so grateful they kept their word.

GoodacreW01 086

The guests take their seats as Becca nervously makes her way to the pulpit.

GoodacreW01 091

As she begins Fitz and Angie stand beside her and listen intently.

GoodacreW01 092

Suddenly another sim arrives (Malcolm Landgraab X).

GoodacreW01 097

GoodacreW01 105

And another.

GoodacreW01 109

And another!

GoodacreW01 106

Becca can't believe that so many sims came to her inaugural sermon. She is so happy she could cry.

GoodacreW01 111

GoodacreW01 113

Towards the end of the sermon the parishioners were so moved that they began hugging each other.

GoodacreW01 114

GoodacreW01 115

Great job, Becca!

GoodacreW01 116

After the sermon Becca washes her hands in the Blessed Water Font baptizing herself as a Peteran. She welcomes the others, if they enjoyed her sermon and are ready to become servants of the Watcher, to do the same.

GoodacreW01 118

The parishioners first head outside to donate to the church.
*AKA I forgot to set up the ticket machine when Becca first arrived*

GoodacreW01 119

GoodacreW01 120

Angie is the first to be baptized.

GoodacreW01 123

GoodacreW01 124

One by one the parishioners make their way to the font and become baptized! Becca is quite pleased!

GoodacreW01 125

GoodacreW01 126

*church besties*

GoodacreW01 128

George hopes that by joining the church his restaurant will be successful.

GoodacreW01 131

Becca has successfully converted five sims!

GoodacreW01 132

After the baptisms Becca speaks with her parishioners about important issues and how the Watcher will guide their decisions.

GoodacreW01 133

GoodacreW01 129

Selena Firestone and Noelee Andrews are curious about the church. Perhaps they will attend the next service.

GoodacreW01 135

Tiara is the first to leave. Becca was overjoyed that a non-resident attended a service and even more ecstatic that she converted! Hopefully Tiara will spread the word to her friends.

GoodacreW01 137

Becca is thoroughly enjoying the rousing discussions with her parishioners.

GoodacreW01 144

It's getting very late so Becca closes the church.

GoodacreW01 148

GoodacreW01 151

GoodacreW01 155

Before leaving Becca makes a wish at the statue of the Gray Lady, the patron saint of her church. She wishes for a long, happy life blessed with lots of children.

GoodacreW01 160

GoodacreW01 162

Back at the farm...

GoodacreW01 163

GoodacreW01 164

GoodacreW01 166

GoodacreW01 167

GoodacreW01 168

At least Faith is happy *bright side*

GoodacreW01 170

A house full of stinky kids doesn't faze Owen Goodacre! He can handle it!

GoodacreW01 177

GoodacreW01 180

Stinky potties, however, he can do without.

GoodacreW01 183

It's time for Holly's first potty training lesson.

GoodacreW01 186

*potty training besties*

GoodacreW01 191

Next it's bath time for Eve.

GoodacreW01 199

Holly found the toy fire truck Owen bought from the Fire Station. She loves the siren and the flashing lights!

GoodacreW01 205

Vivian stops by to assess the Goodacre's lawn. After more than four days it is still a weeded mess. Owen is hit with a Garden Club fine!

GoodacreW01 211

No skin off of Owen's back. The Goodacres are the second richest family in Oceanside after the Landgraabs. They can spare a measly §500.

GoodacreW01 212

GoodacreW01 217

Owen gives Sarah her first turn at the baby jumpy.

GoodacreW01 221

GoodacreW01 228

Then it's back to chores.

GoodacreW01 232

GoodacreW01 238

Owen attempts to cull the weed situation but it's going to take him a while.

GoodacreW01 243

Becca returns from church and helps by cleaning up the yard.

GoodacreW01 245

GoodacreW01 254

GoodacreW01 263

Goodnight from Goodacre's Farm!

Notes: Please note that I am NOT a religious person and I am in no way forcing any type of religion on you or your sims. My view of the "Peteran" religion and a "Priest" comes from The Sims Medieval and is loosely based on Christianity and Catholicism.

The best thing about the farm is that the Goodacres never ran out of groceries this whole year! ^.^ But, again, I wish someone could mod the slaughtered food so you could put them away as leftovers and be able to call to meal. So much waste. :(

Thank you for reading!!! ^.^
