Recently branched off from the older community of Eden, many younger residents have chosen to move away from their ancestoral land to a different location, called New Eden. Although most residents still hold closely to their family ties and history they are eager to start a new life in a place they can make their own.
To celebrate the end of one year in the hood and the begining of the next, the neighborhood residents planned refreshments and free skating at the local ice rink.
Violet and Sierra played a few heated rounds of rock-paper-scissors. Maia didn't know such a simple little game could become so competitive.
Meanwhile, their classmates, Geneva and Charlotte, were still talking about their art lessons from the previous semester at school. Apparently Fawn's visit was a huge success with the teens. They couldn't stop talking about it.
The ice skating rink was a big success as well. Everyone seemed to enjoy taking a turn on the rink.
Alexis was a natural on the ice.
When skating made sims work up an appetite (as the London twins, seemed to have that same thought at the same time), hot drinks and snacks were offered at the picnic area next to the ice rink.
While enjoying the refreshments, the residents of New Eden also took the opportunity to socialize. As always, there was a lot to talk about.
Heather found the mistletoe and scanned the area, wondering if there were any eligible bachelors in the hood that she would like to be kissed by.
While, Genesis didn't bother looking for the mistletoe. She found her man and went for it.
Oh, James . . . beautiful, young Genesis plants a big old kiss on him and he can't stop fawning over Fawn Thayer. If he's not more careful, he might miss out on a good thing.
Jane and Shawn take advantage of a day out without the babies and share a romantic moment.
While for a couple of younger sims, new relationships were just starting.
And others decided that maybe it was time to talk frankly about their relationships and find out where they stand.
Sierra wishes for peace in the new year and hopes that she won't keep getting in fights with Bryan Carson at school or at least if she does, she hopes she won't lose again.
Seth and Richie don't see eye to eye.
There's lots of things to talk about. Money...
the latest television programs . . .
how much the hood is growing.
And plenty of time to play and have fun with the younger sims.
Even though they're in high school and should be more mature, the girls are still kids at Christmas time and looking forward to getting toys for Christmas.
