Kowling Update (As The Girls Grow)

August 01, 2011 By: Gov. Riley Category: Kowling Family, The Sims 3, Tunica Pines No Comments →

Alina and Rainer Kowling believed their hands were full with a child, four toddlers, and an infant in their home.  They never imagined things would get even more wonderfully hectic as their children grew older.  Relishing the big family they both had always wanted, there are still some days that they feel a much-needed vacation might be in order as they struggle to keep up with a teenager, four children, and a toddler.  Despite the crazy odds, though, both still, from time to time, desire having another baby.  Thankfully for both of them, however, there simply is not any more room in their large home.

(Will continue to Update this page as the girls grow instead of making multiple blog posts and repeating the present info).

The Kowling Family of Tunica Pines

July 31, 2011 By: Gov. Riley Category: Kowling Family, The Sims 3, Tunica Pines No Comments →

This anything-but-little family began with CAS Sim and young adult Alina Monroe moving from her hometown of Astoria to the beautiful town of Tunica Pines where she quickly settled into her role as a teacher.

Alina's entire life as a military brat had consisted of constantly moving around.  She felt she could never make friends because as soon as she got close to any at school, her father was moving them across the world for a new assignment.  As an only child, Alina often felt lonely.  She dreamed someday of not only being a school teacher and working with children, but having a huge family to come home to every night.

Working at Tunica Pines Academy was a dream come true for Alina, and she did not think she could be happier.  Yet her life changed for the better when her friendship with local and co-worker Rainer Kowling moved to a new level.  They married in a private ceremony with just a few close friends and family.  Her Maid-of-Honor was her best friend and cousin, Edie Su.  After the wedding and 3-day honeymoon to China, Rainer moved into her tiny one-bedroom home on a hill.

{*Alina is related to the Raingers of Astoria on her mother's side.  Alina's mother, Estella, was the first cousin of Bethany Rainger Su, daughter of founder sim, Ethan Rainger.  Ethan's sister, Charlotte Rainger Campbell, was the mother of Estella.}

Alina Renee Monroe Kowling

Alina is a Cancer who loves Indie music, Cobbler, and the color Spiceberry.  She is a graduate of Fort Starch Military Military School and held a position as Department Head in an Education career until she quit her job to stay home and take care of her growing brood of children.  She is the daughter of Estella Marie (nee Campbell) and Rear Admiral Madison Jefferson Monroe, USN, Retired, of Astoria.  Her Lifetime Wish is to be Surrounded by Family.

Life was idyllic for the young adult couple, but both were eager to start a family - a family, they both agreed, that would hopefully be large.  Remember to always be careful what you ask for! :)

It wasn't long before Alina learned that she was pregnant.  Knowing they had already began to outgrow the tiny, one-bedroom home, they purchased a two-story farmhouse just outside of town.  The soon-to-be-parents dreamed of re-decorating the home to be more modern and comfortable, turning the barn into a playroom, and filling the home with the sounds of many children.

The happy parents soon welcomed their first child, a daughter, that they named Jeisa.

Jeisa Erin Kowling

Jeisa is a Virgo who loves Chinese music, Lobster Thermidor, and the color Lilac.  She is a student of the local elementary school where she keeps an A grade average.  She has an imaginary friend named Sue Ellen and her best friend is Julie Wilson.

Not long before Jeisa reached childhood, Alina learned - to her delight - that she was once again pregnant.  The delight was doubled when she soon after delivered twin girls.  Rainer and Alina could not have been happier about this sudden and unexpected jump in the number of their brood.  It seemed their dreams of a large family to fill the farmhouse were going to come true.  The couple chose the lovely names Clare and Elise for their twin daughters.

Clare Evangeline Kowling

Clare is a Scorpio who loves Hip Hop, Mac and Cheese, and the color Turquoise.  She is a student of the local elementary school where she keeps a B grade average.  She has an imaginary friend named Betty June and her best friend is Katina Gossett.  She is the twin sister of Elise.

Soon, Jeisa was starting elementary school and there were two toddlers crawling around the house to look after.  Alina found herself unable to keep up with the demands of both work and home and decided to - at least until the girls were all in school - quit her job as a Department Head of the local school and devote herself full-time to raising her children.  She left with the blessings of her supervisor and employees and planned to return when all three of her girls were in school and  better able to care for themselves.  She hated the idea of leaving her twin girls home with a babysitter all day long only to come home, exhausted from a long day of  work, and have no time for them as she cooked supper, helped Jeisa with her homework, and got everyone to bed at a decent hour.  Staying home was the best option, and Alina knew she could return to work whenever she was ready.

Yet Fate has a way of turning our best laid plans completely upside down.  Two days before the twins' birthday, Alina learned she was - once again - pregnant.  She and Rainer rejoiced at the news.  Renovations and remodeling had been completed on the kitchen and dining room and the barn, which had become a fun spot and playroom not only for the children and their friends, but also for Alina and Rainer.

Upstairs, the master bedroom was complete, while one of the two bedrooms had been converted into a nursery/child's bedroom.  The extra bedroom, the couple decided, would become Jeisa's room - and she was so very excited about having her own room!

Later, however, the Kowlings learned that all of the fore-planning had been for naught.  Fate always it's own ideas in mind, no?

The day Alina learned she was pregnant again she was celebrating the twins' first birthday.  Her own birthday into adulthood had been only the week before.  She and Rainer discussed fitting one more crib into the twins' nursery.  It would be a tight fit, but not impossible.  Impossible would be adding the second new crib that the happy family sims was going to need for their next set of twin girls!

Completely unplanned and an utter surprise were the Kowling's second set of twin girls, which the couple finally settled on naming Malia and Malina.

The Kowlings realized that even their sprawling farmhouse was outgrowing them.  They put aside all other renovations and remodeling work - including the recently-begun living room project - and had a third floor added to the home.  Thankfully, with inheritance money from the death of Alina's father, this dream could be made reality.

The two second-story bedrooms were joined by an arched doorway and turned into matching turquoise blue and emerald green nurseries.  Upstairs, the couple dreamed up an open area at the top of the stairs - done in girly hot pinks - that provided areas for play and schoolwork, including a retro-styled hot couch that faced an enormous flat-paneled television set connected to a video gaming console.  One side left off to an enormous bathroom that would be cool to share and use not only for little girls but for the teenagers they would someday become.  The other side of the third-story layout was a long, large bedroom, done in soft lilac and a pale olive green, with two sets of bunk beds.

Everything was finished just in time for Alina to give birth to - you guessed it - another daughter!  Though both had hoped for a son, they were happy to have another healthy child and named their youngest one Rianna.

Rianna Jayne Kowling

Rianna is a Virgo who loves Egyptian music, Gooby Carbonara, and the color Blue.  She has an imaginary friend named Amy Lou.  She is still an infant.
