BaCC Week 7: The Button Family  
The Buttons are the only family for which I haven't found a 'voice' yet. I play them like I normally play families: going through the motions of daily life, without thinking too much about their storyline. I'll have to try and remedy that at some point, as I don't want them to become 'that boring family'.  Their greatest achievement so far has been becoming the most active family on the Woohoo front. These two are at it like rabbits every free moment they get.

BaCC Week 7: The Babbling Family  
 The Babblings are not the most sociable of families, always having concentrated on the gathering of knowledge and skills. They've always been there to help out the town though, Rose through her skills in mechanics and engineering, and Teddy through his numerous inventions and research.  Week Seven started off with an achievement to crown Teddy's career in science: he finally made it to Mad Scientist, fulfilling his Lifetime Want. A windfall with one of his inventions netted him a nice §70k shortly after, of which he sent §50k to Felix, instructing him to use the funds to build a Research Center for the town, under his supervision.

Welcome to Sew Far Sew Good!

BaCC Week 7: The Fenwick Family  
Felix and Lily started the week by finally caving in and giving their home a makeover. The old house was really getting too small, people were constantly blocking each other's way. 

So their old place got updated from wooden shack to homely cottage, right in time for autumn to come around. I tried to be as conservative as possible and not dip into the town funds too much, and I think the whole thing cost them around 40K to build and furnish from scratch.
