Grey Declan Brennan, Jr. was the eldest child of two boys. He and his brother, Carson, lived with their father in a fairly small town in the upstairs over daddy's family shop. Grey always aspired to be something big in life, a businessleader or something to that extent. While Carson never really cared much, he wasn't interested in much. Except Grey Brennan Sr. had different plans for Grey Jr, to take over his family business and all [that had been going on through generations of Brennan's for many generations]. Much to Grey Sr.'s disliking, once Grey Jr. graduated he was accepted into a small college near home and decided to take off and study there. And Carson, the back up plan, decided he wanted to enroll the army.
At the same time, Alex Phaedra Bryant lived in that same small town, a couple blocks away. Alex was in Carson's class. She has generally known Carson and Grey for a long time, all the families in town generally know each other. Alex was fairly popular in school, she was a very motivated child and worked very hard during her entire educational career to excel, which paid off when she was accepted into the Ivy League college she dreamed to always go to. She flew away many many hours away from home to study.
Alex, in her childhood, had gone over to Grey's house many times to help Carson on homework. And she always secretly crushed on him during her schooling, from her 'crush' of second grade where it was obviously so cool to crush on boys, until she was older and realized he really was a cute and sweet guy. Grey liked Alex as well, moreso as a sister though because she was 3 years younger and all.
After years of working, Grey had decided to visit home for the winter holidays, seeing as he was working so hard he hadn't had time before to visit. And Alex came home from after graduating college, same year as Grey it happens. She ran into him at his family store and things clicked, they went out on beautiful winter walks and fell in love. After a year and a half they ended up married and madly in love.
Alex and Grey hadn't thought much about kids, until one day Alex came to Grey pregnant. They were very confused at first, especially after learning they were having Boy/Girl twins-- but Grey was quick to start preparing and Alex joined in and they were very excited. They both visited home with the good news, and the family was all thrilled. When they came home, they were surprised to see Carson home as well! And everyone was super excited! <3 Everyone had their own opinions, Grey Sr. wanted the boy named after he and his son, Alex's parents wanted a stylish and cool name, like Caylie or Avery, and Carson suggested Genny. All opinions were taken into consideration and they went home. The due date was approaching soon after, and Alex and Grey were ready as ever-- except for names. Alex and Grey had agreed on their sons name, Greyson Avery. And they'd call him "Sonny" [pronounced like sunny] to avoid confusion. But the girls name.. all they knew is they wanted Edith after Alex's grandma as a middle name. But, just weeks before the birth they got a call from home saying Carson was coming home.. injured. And they wanted to come home so badly, but things were so busy at home and they couldn't go on a plane with Alex so pregnant so Alex decided she really wanted the name Genny incorperated into her little girls name, and they settled on Genevieve. So soon after, little Greyson Avery and Genevieve Edith entered the world, and Sonny and Evie were the best things that had happened to them! <3 [everyone called little Genevieve Evie except Carson, who affectionately calls her Genny].
Eep! I'm out of time! I'll finish later.. lol. I was time filling and turned out I actually did have something to do!
But Alex and Grey ended up with kiddo's:
Greyson Avery and Genevieve Edith "Sonny and Evie/Genny"
Gracie Charlotte and Thorne Jacoby "Gracie and TJ"
Cayden River, Connor Forrest, and Juniper Saskia "Cayden, Connor, and JuneBug"
Kate Honora, Sophia Temperence, Eliza Patience, Juliet Faith, and Delilah Hope "Katie, Sophie, Ellie, Juliet, and Lilah"
