Aubrey Jane Wills (Straight brown hair, green eyes) & Logan Eli Wills (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) - 15 years of our life

Year 1
Moving - 2 story townhouse in Portsmouth for 6 months. Our house got flooded and we needed somewhere to live while it was being refurbished.
Travel - Logan and I take a second honeymoon to Belgium. The chocolate is fantastic!

Year 2
Moving - 2 story house in Holland. Logan was offered a promotion here, and we have always loved the country.
Random - We buy a new car! Our old one was a right hand drive, so we needed a new one for here.

Year 3
Pet - Lizard named Gills. She's gorgeous, and she's a friend for our other lizard, Pops.
Travel - I have to go on a business trip to Berlin. Logan stays at home because he has lots of important meetings.

Year 4
Pet - Labrador puppy named Rhett. He's a crazy dog, loves chewing the furniture but we'll train him out of that one.
Pet - We wanted to get a friend for Rhett, but we couldn't decide what breed? In the end we went for a cute little boxer puppy named Breeze.

Year 5
Child - Emma Jane Wills born 11th August (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) Found out I was pregnant when I went for some anemia tests.
Travel - Logan, Emma and I go on Vacation to Belgium. It's not too far from home if we need anything, because Emma's so young.

Year 6
Family matter - My mother (Elizabeth Jane Howeth) moves in with us.
Child - Archer Wyatt Wills born (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) Logan's mother wanted us to name him Archibald after her grandfather. We honoured him, but still used a name we love. Our parents all begged to be in the delivery room, but we said no. We wanted to share our special moment with our baby alone.

Year 7
Child - Annika Elizabeth Wills born 30th November (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) Our family surprised us with a party to welcome miss Anni to the world.
Travel - Logan has to go to Spain for business. The children and I stay at home, Anni is only tiny and I don't want anything to go wrong.

Year 8
Job - Logan receives a raise and spends it on decorating the kids' bedroom.
Moving - 2 story house in a neighbouring village. We needed extra space now that we have more children!

Year 9
Child - Ryan Dmitri Wills born 25th October (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) Logan missed the birth because he was in a meeting!
Pet - During my days off I volunteer at a local animal shelter. I become so attached to a little kitten named Missy, and I end up taking her home.

Year 10
Job - I received a raise! I took the whole family out for a nice day at the zoo.
Job - Logan transferred companies. The other one was taking him for granted. He feels much more appreciated now!

Year 11
Random - Gills had babies! We named them Fins, Flippers and Tails.
Family matter - Logan was diagnosed with depression. We're all sticking by him and trying to help him through this tough time.

Year 12
Child - Alec-John Richard Wills born 7th March (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) Both my parents and Logan's parents were in the delivery room. We were so happy to share that special moment with them.
Travel - I went on a business trip to New York. I had to take AJ with me, so Logan and the older children came along too.

Year 13
Travel - Logan takes a business trip to China. Emma, Archie, Anni, Ryan, AJ and I accompany him and we spend some time as a family for our holiday.
Child - Anthony Michael Wills born 31st October (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) I went into labour on Halloween!

Year 14
Child - Ruth Jasmine Wills born 27th December (Straight brown hair, blue eyes) I went into labour 3 weeks early in the middle of the supermarket! Ruth was nearly born in the freezer aisles!
Travel - Logan and I took a nice weekend trip to London. With all of the chaos back at our house, it was nice to get away!

Year 15
Pet - Rhett has been getting jealous of all the attention Ruth is getting. We made a fuss of him and he seems happier now.
Random - I entered Ruth into a baby contest, and she won! We got some vouchers for Baby Gap, and I bought some very nice clothes for the children.


Logan & Aubrey Wills w/ Emma, Archie, Anni, Ryan, AJ, Ant & Ruth and their pets Gills, Pops, Fins, Flippers, Tails, Rhett & Breeze

I wasn't sure how it was supposed to be done, so I just kind of made it up really...Hope it's right though. If not, I can change it (: It was a lot of fun though!

George and Catherine took a family vacation to Hawaii. Catherine had always wanted to see Hawaii but never got the chance as a child. George and Catherine spent their time going boating, swimming, eating at fine restaurants, and visiting tourist spots.

Year 2

George received a raise at work! He bought a brand new car with the extra money.

Year 3

Catherine give birth to a baby boy! Their child arrived during a busy time in Catherine's career. George was very supportive, however, and helped out with her work so she could concentrate on caring for their son. George and Catherine named their son Andrew Samuel Singleton. He was born February 9th. He has wavy brown hair and blue eyes.

Year 4

Catherine volunteers at the local animal shelter and came home one day with a two-year-old German shepherd / pitbull mix. She named him Sparky.

Year 5

Catherine quit her job! The stress was affecting her negatively and preventing her from spending time with her family. She got a new job as a paralegal for a law firm with conditions she found suitable and reasonable.

Year 6

Unfortunately, Sparky passed away. On a walk, he ate a poisonous plant. George, Catherine, and Andrew felt heartbroken.

Year 7

George was informed he had to go on a business trip for two weeks in New York. Catherine and Andrew accompanied him and they all had a nice time. Although George had to work, Andrew loved visiting Central Park and Catherine enjoyed sight seeing.

Year 8

Catherine completed one of her life long goals - writing a novel! It was a historical fiction novel set in 1920 Paris.

Year 9

Andrew (age 6) joined an art class! He loves expressing himself and making art.

Year 10

Catherine gave birth to a baby girl! This came as a surprise because both Catherine and George assumed they were having another boy. They named their daughter Hannah Juliette Singleton. Hannah was born May 12th. She has straight brown hair and brown eyes.

Year 11

Andrew adamantly wanted to adopt a new pet. After visiting the shelter, he chose an adorable ginger cat. He named her Minnie. Everyone immediately fell in love with her... including Hannah!

Year 12

George and Catherine decided to adopt a child: a 5-year-old girl from a local orphanage. Her name is Lacey Allegra Singleton. She has wavy brown hair and brown eyes.

Year 13

The Singleton family moved to a one-story townhouse in Denmark. George had family members living in Denmark. The family adjusted to the change fairly quickly... even Hannah and Andrew learned Danish!

Year 14

Catherine and George took a nice weekend trip to Paris, the setting of Catherine's novel! They had a great time. Hannah, Andrew, Lacey, and Minnie stayed with George's aunt.

Year 15

George and Catherine enrolled Andrew, Hannah, and Lacey at a new school. Andrew started 7th grade, Hannah began kindergarten, and Lacey joined preschool.

James Robert & Sara Laurence

James & Sara have been married for 8 years and have been unable to have children. They have a beloved labrador named Duchess who is like thier baby but they both would love to have a child. They have been considering adoption and/or fertility treatments. James works for a construction company and Sara is a social worker for Habitat for Humanity. Sara is 30 years old with wavy brown hair and blue eyes. James is now 32 with straight brown hair and brown eyes.


Year 1
Sara & James' beloved pet Duchess dies. Sara is heartbroken and longs for a child of her own even more. James and Sara seriously look into adoption though they know it can take some time.

Year 2
Oh Happy Day! Sara and James are able to adopt a 3 year old boy here in the US. His name is Jeremy Gresham and he has blond hair and brown eyes.

Year 3
Sara's job transfers her to another city and James is able to find work with another construction company. She and James are able to find a single-story house that is perfect for their little family.

Year 4
Jeremy is now 5 years old and James thinks it would be a good idea to get another dog. Since Jeremy is adopted, he likes the idea of adopting a pet from the pound. At the pound, Sara spots a 2 year old male labrador who reminds her of Duchess. They all agree to take him home. They name him Duke.

Year 5
Surprise! After many years of trying, Sara is surprised to find she is pregnant without even trying. Both Sara & James are very busy in their careers and this new unplanned edition to the family will be a challenge, but both couldn't be happier. A short time later, on January 16, Sara gives birth to a baby girl, and a baby sister for Jeremy! She has curly brown hair and brown eyes. They decide to name her Samantha Beatrice.

Year 6
Jeremy's 2nd grade class bunny has babies. After much pleading, Sara & James agree to let him bring one home. It is white with black patches so Jeremy decides to name him Patches. Samantha calls him "Pas."

Year 7
Times are rough for the construction business and James looses his job. Things will be difficult with only one source of income but Sara and James remain optimistic.

Year 8
Sara & James have always considered Samantha their miracle baby. They are even more surprised when Sara is pregnant for a second time. James is still without a steady pay check but they are making ends meet. The new year brings a new baby girl! Rose Matilda is born on Valentines Day, February 14th. She has curly brown hair and brown eyes just like Samantha.

Year 9
James is able to find steady work again and things are looking up. Sara finds out she is pregnant again but has a miscarriage, now age 39 she worries that she won't be able to have any more children.

Year 10
After the miscarriage, Sara talks to a fertility specialist. Since she is now 40, any further pregnancies she has would be high risk but not impossible. Sara and James decide to try for at least one more child and on May 30th, Sara gives birth to a baby boy! James sadly was not able to be there for the birth because he was out of town on business and couldn't get back in time. He was upset he couldn't be there but was overjoyed when he heard about his new baby boy. Sara and James agree to name him after James' best friend from childhood, Ted. Theodore Amos has straight brown hair like his daddy and he has his mother's bright blue eyes.

Year 11
When Teddy is just a few months old, Sara discovers she is once again pregnant. Nine months later, just before Teddy's first birthday, Sara gives birth to a baby boy on May 11th. They name him Dexter Charles. Dex has wavy brown hair and brown eyes.

Year 12
A year after Dexter is born, James decides to quit his job and start his own construction business. With 20 years in the business he has a lot of contacts to help with this new venture.

Year 13
James' new business is going great, but he is working out of town a lot. Sara & James decide that it would be better to move to where the business is and Sara is able to get a transfer to the new city. They are also able to find and afford a larger two-story townhouse for their much bigger family.

Year 14
Samantha (now 9) and Rose (now 6) have been begging for a kitten. Sara & James surprise them as a combined birthday present (Its not the only present they get). Rose & Samantha love their new kitten and decide to name her Jasmine.

Year 15
Teddy (now 5) has also been begging for a new puppy. Since Jeremy was five when they got Duke, Sara & James give in and agree to allow one more pet. Teddy picks out a tan daucshund which he names Noodle.




The family is now complete.

Last name: Orion
Jonathan Robert & Raven Mika
15 years of our life!

Year 1:
Jon - 24, Raven - 26
Travel - After Jon's college graduation, Jon and I take a nice weekend trip to Tahoe. It's my first time being in the snow, and it's gorgeous!
Pet - When we get home from Tahoe, Jon proposes to me one day by bringing home a kitten and a beautiful silver ring. The kitten is mostly black with a white belly and paws, and her name is Starling. Jon and I marry on December 17th. We live in San Jose, CA.

Year 2:
Jon - 25, Raven - 27
Starling - 1

Child - I become pregnant, but I experience a miscarriage after a couple months (in March). Jon and I are devastated, and we are both more determined than ever to have children.
Child - On October 30th, I give birth to a premature baby girl (2 months early). Both of our parents wanted to be in the delivery room, and of course I let them all be there with me and Jon. This baby girl is their first grandchild! Although she is small, Rosemary Lyn (Rosie) is a fighter and very beautiful! She has straight brunette hair (a surprise, because my hair is curly and Jon's is wavy) and brown eyes like mine.

Year 3:
Jon - 26, Raven - 28, Rosemary - 0
Starling - 2

Child - In July, Jon and I find out that I am pregnant with twins and due in April of next year! We decided to keep the genders a secret.

Year 4:
Jon - 27, Raven - 29, Rosemary - 1
Starling 3

Child - I give birth to boy/girl twins a few weeks early (in late March), which in retrospect does not surprise me because Rosemary was early as well! I went into labor when I was in my classroom at the high school, correcting my student's tests. The teacher in the classroom next door used to be a nurse, and she called my husband and they both got me through it. After a few hours on March 25th, I gave birth to Eric Raymond and Willa Yvonne! Eric has wavy brunette hair (like his father) and green eyes, and Willa has wavy brunette hair and brown eyes.
Pet - In his spare time, Jon has been volunteering at a local animal shelter. We decided together that we wanted to adopt one of the animals at the shelter in November. Starling's new playmate is a three-year-old male Husky named Spock!

Year 5:
Jon - 28, Raven - 30, Rosemary - 2, Eric - 0, Willa - 0
Starling - 4, Spock 3

Random - In February, a book of my poems gets published and is available at my local bookstore! It's something I've wanted for a long time, and Jon is very proud of me!

Pet - Still volunteering at the animal shelter, Jon brings home two rescued male fancy rats. They are very young and so sweet! Odyssey (black and white) and Macbeth (solid gray) are very welcomed members of our family.
Random - I decide to go back to school to get my Masters in English, to better my teaching ability. I love being back at school, even though it's hard work! Although we are sad to see them go, Harley and Keegan move on to another foster family. They promise to keep in touch.

LN: Jenkins

DH: Matthew Charles
DW: Alexandra Renae

Year One
A close relative or friend passes away. This event changes your view on some things. How has this sad event altered your outlook on life?
Cancer claimed the life of Matt's sister, Katie this year. She was only 26. Both Matt and I have realized our time together is limited. We tend to cling to each other, making the most of our time. Personally, I've learned to overlook the small things that used to cause fights between us. Our releationship is stronger and we have more fun!

Year Two
You become pregnant but experience a miscarriage after a couple of months. Does this affect your will to have more children?
Year two brought heartache to Matt and I. I miscarried our first child at 10 weeks. We spent several days mourning the baby we would never hold. It's amazing to discover how one can learn to love so much in such a short time. Since we don't know if our baby was a boy or girl, we decided to name our child Peyton Lee. While this was a trying and devestating experience, we have decided to continue trying for a baby.

Year Three
So takes a business trip. Where? Are you and your children accompanying him/her? If not, is life easy to manage without him/her?
Matt and I had a wonderful trip our third year together. Matt had to make a three week business trip to Japan. Of course, I tagged along! My days were filled with shopping and pampering. Our evenings and weekends were filled with sightseeing and adventure!

Year Four
After having trouble conceiving you turn to fertility drugs and it is possible you are pregnant with multiples! You do not become pregnant with multiples, however you do give birth to a son! Both your parents and SO’s parents have asked to be present in the delivery room. How do you respond to this? Why are they so interested in being a part of this particular birth?
Year Four was absolutely AMAZING! After a year of trying to become pregnant with no success, Matt and I turned to fertility treatment. Soon, I became pregnant! After our earlier miscarriage, we were quite cautious in our activities and lifestyle. When I was 6 months pregnant, Matt had a business meeting to attend in Ireland. After conferring with my doctor, I decided to accompany him. I'm glad I did! While we were there, we found the perfect name for our son - Brodie! A week before Brodie's due date, I went into labor. Both my parents and Matt's parents had asked to be in the delivery room with us. After all, the only grandchild either of them had only lived for 10 weeks in my womb. Saying they were a bit excited we be putting it mildly! After talking to Matt, we decided to grant this request, with one condition - they had to stay up above my waist! Afterall, not everyone has to see everything God gave me! Brodie Matthew arrived on July 28th. He has a full head of straight, brown hair and has light brown eyes.

DS: Brodie Matthew Jenkins

Year Five
You permanently move into a new city.
When Brodie was a year old, Matt got transferred to Houston, TX. We found a lovely apartment to house our small family.

Year Six
You permanently move into a new home in your same city.
After living in our apartment for a year, we discovered it was just not big enough for Matt, myself, Brodie and all his toys! We found a quaint cottage to move into. The extra room is very nice and the yard is a definite plus!

Year Seven
You give birth to a baby girl! You went into labor on a major holiday, which turned everything hectic! What’s the story?
Surprise!!! Year seven brought us a baby girl! This time, we didn't even need fertility help. Our precious daughter was due on January 18th. Obviously, she is a little impatient! Matt and I were watching Brodie go through his Christmas stocking when my water broke! We quickly packed up all the presents, got ourselves, and Brodie, dressed. Matt called both of our parents while headed towards the hospital. Brodie was crying, wanting to open presents. Matt was torn, trying to console Brodie and be there for me. After a couple hours both our parents arrived. YEAH! They entertained Brodie (with more presents) and Matt was able to give me his full attention. Maya Christine made her entrance into our world on Christmas evening. She had curly, brown hair and blue eyes.

Maya Christine Jenkins

Year Eight
You permanently move into a new home in your same city.
Once Maya began accumulating the toys, we found out our little cottage was not big enough for our growing family! So, we packed up and moved once again. This time to a house!

Year Nine
You give birth to a baby girl! After the baby was born, there was almost a mix-up between your child and another newborn! Tell us the story!
It seems that one year of fertility drugs took care of ALL fertility issues! After nine years of marriage, we welcomed another daughter to our family! We almost lost her when a nurse failed to match up our hospital bracelets and brought us a different baby from the nursery! As soon as we saw that bald head - we knew it was not our Katie! Matt quickly grabbed a nurse and found our Katie sleeping in her bassinet in another mother's room. Katie Jasmine arrived on June 5th. Like her sister, Katie arrived with curly, brown hair and blue eyes.

Katie Jasmine Jenkins

Year Ten
You adopt a child. A girl from South America
Year ten took us to Brazil. While there, we fell in love with a 6 year old girl - Delia! Matt used his connections to speed up the adoption process. Within three months Delia was legally ours! She has beautiful black, straight hair and dark brown eyes! Her birthday is March 9th.

Delia Tereza Jenkins

Year Eleven
The company SO works for has been losing money. How has this affected him/her?
Year eleven has kept Matt stateside. His company has been struggling. They have cut down tremendously on travel. It has been nice having Matt home. After years of business meetings and conferences around the globe, I think Matt is a bit relieved to stay put for a while. I can see the worry in his face. The unkown of what is to come with his job is wearing on him. Things may work out though. No need to borrow trouble.

Year Twelve
You permanently move into a new city
Matt's company closed their Houston satellite office this year. Fortunately, Matt kept his job. It just required us to move back to Dallas. Right now we are all snug in a condo. Hopefully we will find something a little bigger soon!

Year Thirteen
Your child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease and should undergo treatment. Although the odds are in your child’s favor, this critical time has been an emotional event in your whole family’s life. How has this event changed life for your family and your outlook on life?
Year thirteen brought us back into perspective. Maya was diagnosed a neuroblastoma (childhood cancer). She underwent surgery to remove the tumor and had months of chemotherapy. Fortunately, the doctors expect a full recovery. Now, our little condo doesn't seem so little. Matt and I want all our children right there with us. We relish the time we have together. Once again, we are reminded to cherish each day and take nothing for granted.

Year Fourteen
You purchase a small pet, such as a fish or hamster, etc. What species is your new pet? What did you name it?
To celebrate one year of cancer free, we let Maya get a pet. She picked out a beta fish and named it Spike.

Year Fifteen
You temporarily move into a new home in your same city
This year we moved into a single story house. It is older and doesn't have the amenities the condo had, but it is nice to have a little elbow room! We have the house, rent free, for 12 months! It is my brother's house. His job is taking him overseas for a year. We are really excited! Our plans are to custom build our dream house during this time. Matt and I can hardly wait!

Firstly, Kudos to whoever actually made this, because it's fantastic. Took me 4 hours to do though! I rolled twice for each year to make it a bit more interesting.

My name is Jade Leanne Marks, and I am 40 years old. I have straight brown hair and green eyes and I work as an architect. My parents died when I was in my late teens, and I have one brother. I'm married to Aaron James Marks, and he's a photographer. He's 42 years old, and has straight black hair and brown eyes. Both of his parents are still alive, and he has a twin sister.

We got married 15 years ago, and moved into a small apartment together in Glasgow. A month after the wedding I found out I was pregnant, and 7 months later I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on the 22nd of March. We were quite shocked, as the midwife had told us we were expecting a boy! We named her Lily Madeleine, and she has wavy black hair and green eyes.

A year later I took a business trip to Sweden. It was beautiful, and when the chance of a job transfer came up, I jumped at the chance. Aaron was happy to live wherever my job took me, and later that year we moved into a one-story house in Sweden.

A few months after we moved, I discovered I was pregnant again. Although I'd been feeling ill, I had put it down to the stress of moving, and to find I was 6 months pregnant was a shock. Unfortunately, Aaron got lost on the way to the hospital and by the time he arrived, Marcus Alexander had already been born on the 28th of April. He has straight black hair and brown eyes. We took a short vacation to the UK in October to introduce Marcus to his parents.

Once Lily hit 3 years old, all she wanted was a pet. Eventually we caved, and adopted Draco the Ferret. A few months later, we also moved into a larger two-story house.

Sadly, Aaron's father passed away the next year and his mother came to live with us in Sweden. I'd recently found out I was pregnant with twin boys, and when they were born on October 17th we decided to name them after Aaron's father. Nicholas Aaron and Thomas James have black wavy hair and green eyes.

After my maternity leave, I went back to work and received the offer of a promotion and transfer. It would mean moving to the Netherlands, and after talking it through with Aaron he agreed. We settled into a two-story house in the Netherlands just before Lily started school.

Lily learnt a lot about death this year, as Draco the Ferret escaped and had an unfortunate accident with my car as I was reversing out of the garage early in the year, and her best friend's parents died in a car crash a few months later. She begged us to adopt her friend, and after a lot of paperwork, Jacobus Kai came to live with us on his 6th birthday, July 4th. He has black straight hair and blue eyes and is a lovely, yet understandably quiet boy.

On our 8th Anniversary, Aaron suprised me with tickets to Paris for the weekend. Unfortunately, the trip didn't go as we planned, and I almost died from an allergic reaction after I'm stung by a bee.

We continued our run of bad luck when Aaron is diagnosed with depression early in the year. He decides to quit his job, and concentrate on the children for a while. Money becomes tight, but he's happier than he's been in over a year.

The following year, I received a large raise that compensates for the loss of Aaron's wage, and he decides to go back to college to study councelling.

I discover I'm pregnant just after Christmas, and Sebastian Chase and Catherine Sophia are born on June 30th. They have straight black hair and brown eyes. They decided to come a few weeks early however, and I nearly ended up giving birth at work during my last day! My brother visits with his children just after the twins are born, and tells me that he has been diagnosed with cancer, and only has a few months to live. I'm devestated, but agree to look after his children when he dies, since he doesn't want them living with his drug addicted ex-wife. Wesley Alexander and Wade Austin sadly join the family on the 26th December. They will turn 9 on April 1st, and have curly blonde hair and blue eyes, just like my brother.

For Wesley and Wade's birthday, we adopt a Great Dane named Scooby-Doo. I'm a bit nervous of a such a large dog near the babies, but he's such a softy with them. When I go back to work, I secure a large client for the company and receive a promotion!

Whoops! Scooby turned out to be a girl, and now we have 9 little Scooby's running around! We'd love to keep them, but the house is just too small! We find all but one good homes, and keep the last one as company for Scooby, and name him Scrappy-Doo, obviously! Aaron and I have a huge argument one evening when I complain about his mother spanking one of the children. He stays at a friends house for a few days, but apologises when he returns, and things go back to normal.

I have an accident on the way home from work on March 22nd, Lily's birthday, of the next year, and wreck my car. I fracture my wrist and suffer a miscarriage. I hadn't known I was pregnant, and I'm told that I was three months gone. I splurge on a brand new SUV to replace my car to try and cheer myself up, but it has little effect.

We decide to move back to the UK in September of the next year. We'd like the children to go through the English University system, and we feel it's important for them to study their A-Levels there too. Luckily there is an opening in the UK office of my company, and with all the children in school or pre-school, Aaron's mother decides to move into a retirement home nearby. Just before Christmas, Aaron tells of an 8 year old boy he's been councelling called Jason Samuel. His parents are abusive, and he's been taken away from them. We foster him, and his younger brother Jackson Seth who is 4. They both have straight black hair and blue eyes.


So that's the story of our family. We've been happily married now for 15 years, and have 11 beautiful children, and two very friendly dogs! We certainly never planned on this many children, but whether they're biological ours, related by family, or not related at all, we love them all the same.

| THE Delaney FAMILY |

DH Ezra Benjamin
Dark brown wavy hair, brown eyes.
DW Daphne Lorraine
Light brown curly hair, blue eyes.


March 1997
Ezra [20] & Daphne [20]

My sister Helen moved in with us today. She's separated from her husband John, so I offered for her to stay with me and Ezra since we have a little spare room. I hope they can work things out, every relationship has it's ups and downs and I'm hoping it's just a small bump in the road. I know Johnny really loves her.


February 1998
Ezra [21] & Daphne [20]

Helen moved out after staying with us for only a month. Her being around made us realise that if we want to try for a baby, we'd need a bigger house! It was just so cramped in that little apartment and with only three people? No way would there have been enough space for a growing family... So one year after, once we had saved up some money, we decided to buy a two story town-house in our home town of Rosedale, Louisiana.


January 1999
Ezra [22] & Daphne [21]

Ezra had always wanted a dog and since his parents wouldn't allow him to have one as a child, I thought now that we were living on our own... I would buy him one for his birthday, a labrador retriever. Hence, we welcomed Finch in to our little family. Ezra just about adores him! I think I've managed to out do myself this year.


January 2000
Ezra [23] & Daphne [22]

I decided to go in to buisness with one of my childhood friends, Kat Green. Ever since I was a little girl, I've dreamed of opening up my own little bakery. Cupcakes are my favourites. I'd taken some cooking classes and the rest I learned from my mother and grandmother. Kat has a buisness degree and frankly, she has a bit of a sweet tooth! We named our little flourishing buisness "The Rolling Pin" and soon enough, we had people lining up to buy our cakes!


September-October 2000
Ezra [23] & Daphne [23]

Just as my job was beginning to take a turn for the better, Ezra was layed off. He'd been working in at a local advertising firm as an assistant but because of the economy, he and a bunch of other workers were let go. But he didnt let it get him down!! He said it only meant that he could now focus on what he really wanted to do, which was coach high school basketball. We looked for a while and after about 3 months he was offered a job as the basketball coach at the local high school because the previous coach had moved with his family up to Arkansas. Before I knew it, he was smiling and happy to get up in the morning.


June 2001
Ezra [24] & Daphne [24]

Back in November, I found out I was 2 months pregnant which would put my due date some time in July. We were at one of Ezra's basketball games when I suddenly went in to labour, more than 4 weeks early! We managed to get to the hospital just in time, where we delivered our baby girl, Emma Vivian born June 5th 2001. She had fine, light brown curly hair and big blue eyes, like my side of the family. She was perfect... and she was ours.


July 2002
Ezra [25] & Daphne [25] with Emma [1]

A month after Emma had turned 1, I experienced a miscarriage. And though I had only been 1 1/2 months pregnant, it was devastating. No one could tell us what had gone wrong. I tried to keep it together, but deep down inside I blamed myself and I was sure Ezra was blaming me too. This only made me more determined to have another child, but I decided to just let go. If it was meant to be, it would be.


March 2003
Ezra [26] & Daphne [26] with Emma [21 months]

Ezra was feeling very unusual and down for about a year now, since the miscarriage. I insisted we see a doctor, who diagnosed him with depression. I tried to be as supportive as I could, without letting him show that I was hurting too. Once he was on medication and we began going to therapy, things seemed to be getting better.


April 2004
Ezra [27] & Daphne [27] with Emma [2]

In September of 2003 I found out I was 2 months pregnant. This pregnancy was considered high risk due to what had happened a year and a half before. I was kept under observation and it was a definite relief to get past the second trimester! I was sure we were having another girl because everything about my pregnancy seemed exactly the same as when I was pregnant with Emma. I was carrying the same, was having the same cravings... But, on April 10th 2004, we welcomed our son Henry Benjamin. We wanted his first name to be after my grandfather Henry Arthur who had passed away when I was 15. His middle name is after Ezra's middle name and also Ezra's father's middle name. Henry had wavy dark brown hair and brown eyes, just like his daddy.


May 2005
Ezra [28] & Daphne [28] with Emma [3] and Henry [13 months]

When Emma was almost four we decided we would let her have a small pet. We already had Finch, but we wanted her to start learning about responsibility. Baby steps, of course! So, we got her a fish. Emma was in charge of feeding him every couple of days and she would help me to clean his bowl. She named her little fishy Upsy-Daisy after her favourite character from "In the Night Garden".


January 2006
Ezra [29] & Daphne [28] with Emma [4] and Henry [21 months]

In July 2005 I found out I was expecting our third child! I was already 12 weeks along. When we had our 20 week scan, we were told we would welcome our second baby boy sometime in January. The closer we got to my due date, the more my mother-in-law was pestering me about having another child. She kept telling me how much harder it would be and that I should do what she did and get a full time nanny. The last straw was when she said she should maybe take one of the children to live with her for a while, because I wouldn't be able to handle another little one. We didn't speak for 2 months, but eventually she apologised and on January 22nd 2006, little Jack Oliver came in to the world... (we wanted a common name like Emma's and Henry's). Jack had wavy dark brown hair like his brother and sister and light brown eyes.


March 2007
Ezra [30] & Daphne [30] with Emma [5], Henry [2] and Jack [14 months]

For my birthday, Ezra bought me a new car!! A black Land Rover Discovery. I love it. It also means we have more room if we decide to try for another baby any time soon.


February 2008
Ezra [31] & Daphne [30] with Emma [6], Henry [3] and Jack [2].

In 2008, after 8 years of running and working at "The Rolling Pin", I sold the bakery and decided I would spend some time at home with the kids. I just felt like between work and school and Emma starting Kindergarten, that I was missing out on what really mattered to me. We were now solely relying on Ezra's income though. But I had saved quite a lot from the bakery, so we were financially stable for now.


February 2009
Ezra [32] & Daphne [31] with Emma [7], Henry [4] and Jack [3].

On February 14th 2009, I welcomed our fourth child and second daughter, Clara Isobel born on mine and Ezra's 14th Valentine's day together! She had a head full of light brown, curly hair and dark brown eyes like her father. Emma was so happy to finally have another girl around! I think that's enough now though! Four kids is enough for us. And I love every single one of them. All perfect in their own ways.

July 2010
Ezra [33] & Daphne [33] with Emma [9], Henry [6], Jack [4] and Clara [18 months].

Moving - Eleven years after our move to the Netherlands, Doug and I decide to move back to Canada. Doug is able to keep his job by working at the smaller branch in our new hometown. We find a perfect two-story house that will be able to hold our large family.
Pet - After constant nagging about another pet, Doug and I agree to give Pippa a companion. There is disagreement on what type of pet we should get but eventually we choose another cat. Pippa and our new cat, Peter take a while to become friends but soon they are inseperable.

Year 15:
Doug - 40, Erin - 39, Emilie - 11, Liam - 8, Victoria - 7, Gavin - 5, Calliope - 2, Nathaniel - 2, Henry - 0
Child - After months of preparation for our newest addition, none of us are prepared when our baby boy arrives in the early morning of Valentines Day. After much urging from my mother to name our boy after my dad, I decide to use the not so appealing name as our baby's middle name. For his first name we name him after Doug's closest friend. Henry Augustus Trent is born on February 14, 2026 with straight, blonde hair and brown eyes.
Random - With 7 kids, our small SUV is getting quite packed. We decided to splurge and import a Land Rover Defender 110 which can seat 10 people.

Finit!

Year 1- 2020

Pet: I’ve been volunteering at a local animal shelter after work for several months. About a week ago, an abandoned litter of Lab puppies were brought in. I fell in love with the smallest, a little boy I called Jet. I told Ryan about him, and he confessed he’d wanted a dog for a while too. Jet came home 2 days later.

Family Matter: Ryan and I were having relationship issues this year. His mom was sick and he was never in a good mood. We started fighting a lot and things weren’t well between us. We started counseling and things started getting better. Ryan’s mom got better and we got closer again. Soon, things were back to normal.

Year 2- 2021

Job: Ryan lost his job this year. The company was losing money and he got laid off. He realized he hadn’t liked that job much anyways, and started a new job as technical engineer.

Child: Ryan and I really wanted a baby, but were having trouble conceiving. We turned to fertility treatments and they worked better then we thought! Maverick Thomas and Maddox Timothy were born on September 21st, 2021. They had wavy blonde hair, big blue eyes, and the cutest little noses. When we came home there was a whole surprise party waiting for us! Everyone was so excited to see them!

Year 3- 2022

Random: Ryan and I were having some finical issues. Having twins is twice the expense, and it’s not always easy. I ended up quitting my job for a higher paying one as a Pediatrician at a larger hospital, which solved the problem. We ended up having more then we started with!

Family Matters: We decided to enroll the twins into day care. Ryan’s mom had been watching them, but lately her joints have been hurting more lately, and it’s getting harder for her. They love playing with the other kids and I’m sure we made the right decision.

Year 4- 2023

Random: I decided to write a book my life as a working mother of identical twin toddlers. I really had fun writing it and Ryan loved it. We actually got it published and it made the bestseller list!

Travel: This year we packed up the twins and headed of to Disney! The twins had so much fun and we celebrated their birthday their. We stayed in a beautiful hotel and had a wonderful time!

Year 5- 2024

Family Matter: We moved the twins over to preschool this year. They’re doing very well in school and their teachers love them! We tried to dress them different for school so the teachers could more easily tell them apart, but they wanted to match. It was cute, and harmless, so we let them.

Job: Ryan transferred to the Chicago branch. It was closer to our house and he got paid better, so it was fine for us! He got home earlier too, with the twins loved. Ryan dotes on them. Oh, and I found out I was pregnant!

Year 6- 2025:

Travel: My friends and I went to the city for the day while Ryan had a boys day with the twins. It was a great day for all four of us!

Child: On January 24th our third son, Jagger Austin was born. He had my hair and Ryan’s eyes. Ryan missed he birth as he was a business trip and Jagger was two weeks early. The twins were almost as thrilled and as we were!

Year 7- 2026:

Child: This year we got pregnant again! It was unexpected but exciting! On December 20th, just 11 months after having Jagger, our first little girl Bristol Quinn was born. She had a full head of wavy blonde hair and big blue eyes. We were shocked at having I daughter, as we were really expecting a fourth son! We were extremely happy to have a girl though!

Job: Ryan’s company has been losing money lately, not good when you have two kindergartens, a one year old, and an infant. Luckily the when company got bought out and he kept his job and things went back to normal.

Year 8- 2027:

Child: I got pregnant with our fifth this year! We had only been planning on four, but we were excited none the less. We knew it would be hard having our third child, in three years, but our children are well behaved and that the twins would help out. I went into labor two months early and almost delivered during a conference with the twins’ teacher! Our second little girl, Hadley Erin, was born on November 27th 2027. She has Wavy blonde hair and blue eyes, like Ryan.

Travel: Ryan and I left the kids with my parents and jetted of on our second honeymoon in Europe. We had a lot of fun, but missed he kids a lot, and were happy to be home.

Year 9- 2028:

Pet: We wanted a new pet, but we all disagreed on what to get. The twins wanted a newt, I wanted another lab, and Ryan wanted a cat. In the end we got a fire-bellied newt, because the twins really wanted one. They named it Jiggers.

Random: We bought a new car! Our mini-van was too cramped with five kids, and we really needed it. We have a full size van now, prefect for our large family!

Year 10- 2029:

Child: Ryan and I heard about a hurricane that had taken place in Africa, and after talking for a while, decided to adopt. With the circumstances, the adoption was sped up, and we were able to get our little girl just six months later. She’s six years old her name is Munashe Dikeledi, but we call her Nashie. She doing well learning English and really fits in with the family.

Travel: My friends and I went on a day trip while Ryan and his brother Collin took our kids (and Collin’s two) to the museum. It was a good day for everyone.

Year 11- 2030

Random: We re-did our house and gave it a more modern look. We also re did the kids’ rooms and had another floor added to the house. It was nice to have the extra space, and now Nashie has her own room. She is a lot older then Bristol and Hadley after all.

Travel: My friends and I went on another day trip, a brought Nashie along to have a girl’s day. I wanted to make sure I had some special time with her, as she is adopted.

Year 12- 2031

Child: We got pregnant again his year. I was worried about having a seventh, but we could afford it, and at least our kids were getting older. It kind of affected our future plans. Our seventh (six biological) child was born on December 31st, 2031. We named her Addison Hayley, and she has straight brown hair and beautiful blue eyes.

Random: My best friend and I opened a small business during the summer. It’s doing very well and I love selling cupcakes!

Year 13 – 2032

Child: I got pregnant again. Ryan and I were really worried, but we love our baby girl. Our fifth daughter Lea Camryn was born on October 9th. She looks just like Addison too. Having 8 kids is a lot of work.

Moving: We’re officially moved to Chicago to Poland! It’s a big move, but it’s for Ryan’s job. The twins will be starting 6th grade, Nashie will be starting 4th, Jagger will be starting 2nd, Bristol 1st and Hadley kindergarten there. We moved into a six bedroom, 3 bathroom two story.

Year 14- 2033

Moving: We moved to a bigger house in our same city as our house was hit by a tornado.

Family Matter: Ryan and I are arguing again. Having eight kids leaves us no time for each other and we’ve been fighting. We went to the same marriage counselor as before and worked things out. We set a few dates to spend together and things were even better then before.

Year 15- 2034

Pet: We got a pet rat this year. We named him Junior. The kids love him.

Child: I got pregnant again but didn’t know it until I was told I had miscarried. Ryan and I despite done with having children, still were very sad about the loss of our child.

The Harris Family

William Noah & Charlotte Sofia

William was born on the twelfth of August and is 22 years old. He has wavy brown hair and bright green eyes.
Charlotte was born on the fifteenth of December and is 21 years old. She has straight blonde hair and light blue eyes.



1997

{Couple} William Noah [22] Charlotte Sofia [21]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 0]

Moving - Now that we have both finished university Liam and I moved into a two-story condominium in a new state. We picked New York because we think it will hold good job opportunities for us as well as I grew up in Long Island here. William is a little unsure seeing as how he grew up in the south, but with a little time here I'm sure Liam will grow to love it as much as I do.

Pet - Having moved into our new home Liam and I feel like the place is a little empty. We both have a strong love of animals, Liam grew up on a farm and I always had dogs in my house as a kid, So we looked up breeders and found a reputable one. She sold a few of the more popular breeds including Beagles, Golden Retrievers, Labradors Retrievers and German Shepherd puppies. After a little debate, I wanted a Golden Retriever and Liam wanted a German Shepherd, we flipped a coin and Liam won. We took a little male puppy home and named him Hank.


1998

{Couple} William Noah [23] Charlotte Sofia [22]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 1]

Random - Liam and I decided we wanted to redo the home seeing as we only recently moved in and we didn't change too much when we originally moved in. We used some of the money that I recently won in the lottery. I wasn't like winning the jackpot or anything but still quite a lot. It was three thousand dollars. I put the rest that we didn't spend into our little nest egg for the future.

Child - A little after we finished redoing the house, I had this terrible pain and I started to bleed a lot. It was horrible. I called Liam from work and he rushed home to take me to the hospital. It turns out I had been pregnant and suffered a miscarriage. Liam and I were devastated. We have always wanted children and even though we didn't know we were pregnant losing this little one was a low blow to us. After it though, Liam and I are even more sure we want to expand are family and hopefully do it soon.


1999

{Couple} William Noah [24] Charlotte Sofia [23]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 2]
{Children} Levi Jackson [0]

Child - After our experience last year, Liam and I decided we really wanted children and we started to actively try and conceive. A month after we found out we were pregnant. From the start something in my heart just told me it was going to be a little girl. I was even confirmed on this when we went to the doctor and she told us we were going to welcome a little girl. We picked out the name Lorelei Juliette. We painted the bedroom for her a nice light, rosy pink and decorated the nursery all in frilly and lacy things. So, on February 16th 1999, when I went into labor Liam, the family and I were all shocked when the doctor told us our son was born. I told the doctor he couldn't be right but it was. Shocked we changed the name over to Levi Jackson and had William's siblings rush to the house to redo the room up for Levi. Still, our little boy was perfect, he has blonde straight hair and green eyes.

Job - With everything going on with a new baby, Liam has been given a promotion. It's fantastic and a perfect timing because when they say children will eat you out of a house and home they aren't lying. Especially, seeing as how we had to rebuy everything over and try and get money back for all the girl things we bought.. So this promotion definitely came at a really good time and although it means Liam won't be at home as much he and I both understand it's best for the family.


2000

{Couple} William Noah [25] Charlotte Sofia [24]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 3]
{Children} Levi Jackson [1] Amelia Madelyn [0] Annie Evelyn [0]

Child - So, only a year after having Levi, Liam and I found out we were pregnant once more. This was a total shock to us since I had been on the pill but I guess I must have forgotten to take it once and that was all it took. Liam and I were even more shocked when we went to our OBGYN, a different one since we changed over after the issue with Levi's gender, we found out we were having twins. Fraternal twins. Liam was shocked but I wasn't all that much seeing as how my mother is a triplet and my father has younger twin brothers. We checked with more than one doctor to confirm, just to be safe, and everyone told us the same thing. We were expecting fraternal, twin girls. We picked out the first names, Annie and Amelia to honor my grandmother, Abigail, who had died five years ago. Their middle names are Evelyn and Madelyn respectively after my mother's triplet siblings. So when January 2nd 2000, came around we welcomed Amelia Madelyn and Annie Evelyn into the world. Sadly, Liam had been at work when I went into labor, a week before our planned c-section, and missed the twins birth. Amelia has straight brown and green eyes, Annie has wavy brown hair and blue eyes.

Moving - Since we welcomed home Amelia and Annie recently we decided our little two-story condo just wasn't big enough for our growing family and with mine and Liam's salaries we knew we could afford to move so we packed our family up and with our cute, one-story house ready we moved in and loved all the new room we had. The backyard was a nice size which was perfect for Hank to run around and for a play set, swing set and or tree house for the children when they're a little older.


2001

{Couple} William Noah [26] Charlotte Sofia [25]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 4] Duke [Golden Retriever, 0]
{Children} Levi Jackson [2] Amelia Madelyn [1] Annie Evelyn [1] Caleb Nathaniel [0]

Child - Honestly, I thought I was being a little more careful with my birth control but I guess I wasn't because only a year after the girls I'm pregnant once more. Liam and I are a little shocked but more than excited. We both knew we wanted a big family, so even though it's happening a little faster than we expected we're happy nonetheless. While pregnant my mother-in-law kept calling me over and over, especially when she found out it was a boy, telling me I simply had to name the baby after brother Norman. I was completely frustrated, my husband didn't want to tell his mother no and that name was simply hideous. I wouldn't think to curse my unborn baby with a name that would surely get him mocked on the playground. So, I told her no. She freaked out on me. We didn't speak for months Not until a month before the baby was born. I promised her I'd give the baby a name honoring Norman but would not use his name. We made up and everything was nice and settled by the time July 8th 2001 rolled around and we welcomed into the world Caleb Nathaniel. He had blonde hair and deep blue eyes. We almost had a mix up when a nurse walked in and brought in a different baby! I told her there must have been a mistake when I saw the baby had dark hair. Thankfully, we fixed the mistake and located Caleb rather quickly.

Pet - Liam and I noticed that Hank was a little lonely what with us needing to pay so much attention to the kids, we decided he needed a playmate. So we went back to the breeder we visited to get Hank. Liam and I disagreed because I once more wanted a Golden Retriever and he wanted another German Shepherd. We argued over it for a little while before finally Liam saw my point of view in that he got his wish last time and so it was only fair for me to get a Golden Retriever this time. So, the couple brought home to their family a little boy puppy who they named Duke.


2002

{Couple} William Noah [27] Charlotte Sofia [26]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 5] Duke [Golden Retriever, 1]
{Children} Levi Jackson [3] Amelia Madelyn [2] Annie Evelyn [2] Caleb Nathaniel [1]

Travel - Liam has been asked to spend a month in Tokyo for his job. It would be good for his career and possibly put him up for a promotion. As much as I don't want him to go and he doesn't want to leave me and the kids, we both know it's for the best. My parents, Roslyn and James, come and stay with me to help me take care of the kids. It was hard when the kids kept asking for their daddy but we made it through and everything worked out well.

Moving - Liam and I decided that the house needed some repairs to it as well as an extension because it was getting a little cramped. We had the money and figured it would be a good thing for us since we weren't sure with the kids so young that we wanted a two-story house because of our worry about them falling on the stairs and hurting themselves. So we made the plans for the work to be done and found out that it would take two months for the work to be done so we rented a single-story townhouse for the allotted time and moved in. It wasn't that open and we felt a little cramped at the time but it was well worth it when we came back and saw how stunning our house looked.


2003

{Couple} William Noah [28] Charlotte Sofia [27]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 6] Duke [Golden Retriever, 2]
{Children} Levi Jackson [4] Amelia Madelyn [3] Annie Evelyn [3] Caleb Nathaniel [2]

Travel - Taking care of four children under the age of five is hard on a marriage. Liam and I don't have as much time as we used to spend with each other and it's been taking its toll on us. His mother, Judith, offered to take the kids and watch the dogs for a weekend if the two of us agreed to go away and have a nice romantic time to ourselves. We jumped at the chance. A month later we arranged a trip to Hawaii, where we spent our honeymoon, and it was magical. We rekindled our romance and came home bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Family Matter - Not even a few months after taking the kids to spend time with her Judith passed away. She died in her sleep of natural causes and Liam was devastated. He was the epitome of a mama's boy. His mother was only seventy-five and it made us both realize how short and tragic life could be. William and I both want a bigger family and have decided to start trying again for more children.


2004

{Couple} William Noah [29] Charlotte Sofia [28]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 7] Duke [Golden Retriever, 3]
{Children} Levi Jackson [5] Amelia Madelyn [4] Annie Evelyn [4] Caleb Nathaniel [3] Jude Bennett [0]

Child - Liam and I have been actively trying again for a child and it seems I must be a fertile myrtle or something because I got pregnant right away. It was perfect and we we're both so excited for the new baby. With the house having been remodeled a year ago we have a lot of room for more kids so checked the gender and found out we we're having a baby boy. We decided to name him after Judith. Her full name was Judith Barbara, so we picked out the name Jude Bennett for the baby. He was born on March 15th 2004 with straight, brown hair and blue eyes. When we took Jude home, both mine and Liam's family threw us a huge welcome home party. It was a ton of fun and I think it was a good thing because everyone really needed something to celebrate after the tragedy of last year. I'm sure somewhere in heaven Judith is looking down on us and couldn't be happier.

Random - Liam has been having a hard time dealing with his mother's death so a friend of ours recommended that he try writing about us. He did and when he was done I convinced him to send it into a publisher and they loved it. His book, a book on how to deal with your parents passing, was a huge success and I'm so proud of him. We dedicated the book to Judith and donated a portion of the money to her favorite charity.


2005

{Couple} William Noah [30] Charlotte Sofia [29]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 8] Duke [Golden Retriever, 4]
{Children} Levi Jackson [6] Amelia Madelyn [5] Annie Evelyn [5] Caleb Nathaniel [4] Jude Bennett [1] Ethan Archer [0]

Job - Liam got called up to his bosses office today and got a promotion! We're both so excited because he's been working so hard for so long at his company. It couldn't have come at a better time when we both want to expand our family and when we want to perhaps think about once more expanding our house or moving once more.

Child - While we both continue to work and do our things with the kids Liam and I are still trying for more kids. I was one of seven and William was one of nine as well as having three half siblings. The kids couldn't be more excited as well. They're at the age when they love their siblings and they all want a hand in naming the baby and some of them are a little funny. Annie wants to name the baby Princess Violet of Bunnington. When we told her the baby was a boy she still was not swayed in the least about her name choice. As time went by soon came about May 13th 2005, a month before my due date and I went into labor. It was a huge shock and we went to the doctors. I almost ended up giving birth in the car! We barely made it to the hospital in time but we did. We welcomed into the world. Ethan Archer. He had wavy, blonde hair and green eyes.


2006

{Couple} William Noah [31] Charlotte Sofia [30]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 9] Duke [Golden Retriever, 5]
{Children} Levi Jackson [7] Amelia Madelyn [6] Annie Evelyn [6] Caleb Nathaniel [5] Jude Bennett [2] Ethan Archer [1]

Job - Lately, my job and going to and fro just doesn't seem to hold the same enjoyment that it used to. I'm no longer excited to go to work and do my job. I want to be home more for my kids and with Liam doing so well in his job. We have enough money to go around and to live how we wish and then some. So, I put in my two week notice and left my job with a very nice severance pay. After a month off of the job. I know I've done the right thing and am happy where I am.

Moving - With our family expaning so we have decided once more that we need to make some adjustments to our house and even more so then last time. We go and rent a one-story cottage for about five months and our very excited to be staying there since its so close to the school that the kids attend that for now I can walk them to school and it's wonderful to spend that time with my kids.

Mason Wyatt [0]

Child - Since, we wish to have a large family and with the house remodeled to have more room last year. Liam and I have started to try for another a child. It didn't take us long and three months into trying we were pregnant. I called my mother excited to tell her the news. I had planned to go and tell Liam over a nice romantic dinner but this morning my mother called and Liam picked up. She told him! I was a little flabbergasted and upset but it's a little too late for it now. Either way, Liam was ecstatic and when we found it was a boy we picked the name Mason Wyatt for our little bundle of joy. We welcomed him into the world on July 30th 2007. He has the cutest green eyes and wavy, brown hair.

Job - Things have been going so well in the family with the children being well and school going splendidly. Liam even went on to and get a promotion. It's wonderfully welcome with all of our recent new editions and hopefully the new editions that we have to hopefully come in the future.

Mason Wyatt [1] Violet Audrey [0] Scarlett Olivia [0]

Child - With Liam's promotion and the money coming in well now, we decided that we want a big family so let's keep going. We were having a little trouble conceiving so we decided to seek fertility treatments and not long after we found out we were once more pregnant and with fraternal twin girls again! Liam and I could not have been more excited. I had hoped for girls, a happy baby would have been fine, but I had hoped too possibly have another daughter and we ended up with two! It was wonderful. We welcomed home Violet Audrey and Scarlett Olivia.

Pet - Coming home from school today the children ended up finding a little puppy on the front of our porch with no tags, nothing. So, when Liam gets home for the day Levi, Amelia, Annie, Caleb and I take the puppy to the vet to get checked out while Liam watches the younger children. We find out that the puppy is a little girl, she's a golden retriever and along with not having tags she also doesn't have a chip, and is also a little under weight and dehydrated but other than that she is perfectly healthy. We take her home and put signs up with her picture saying found puppy but after two weeks of calling her "puppy" and no response to the flyers the kids beg me and Liam to keep her. All the kids had different ideas for names so we allowed them to write their name idea, or I wrote it for them in Jude and Ethan's cases, and I picked from a hat. Annie's name lot was drawn and so we welcomed Daisy into the family.

Family Matter - Some devastating news has hit our family. We were already having a hard time due to my youngest sister, Francine Melody, having been pregnant from a one night stand but tragedy struck a little more so when just yesterday night she died giving birth to her fraternal boy girl twins. The family is completely devastated at her death as well as about her poor children. Without a father in the picture, who will take care of them? Without needing to think much on it Liam and I agreed to take them in. We respected Francine's wishes for their first names, which were after us since we were going to be the babies godparents, but decided to honor her on their middle names. With slightly heavy hearts we welcomes home Sophie Melody and Noah Francesco. The kids all miss their auntie Frannie, but love the babies nonetheless.

Random - After the death of Frannie as well as taking care of the twins I write a book over their first year of raising them and my struggles with it as well as the joys and blessings it brings me to see parts of my sister still living on in her children. How Noah has her eyes and how Sophie's giggles sound as if Frannie is in the room laughing herself. Its hard but oh so worth it and with the book published it receives a good amount of money which I split, half goes into college funds for Sophie and Noah and the other half goes to research on deaths like Frannies.

Job - Liam has gotten the best news ever from work! I couldn't be more ecstatic. He works for a law firm called Sterling-Duval-Hugh and it seems George Hugh will be retiring next month and so they have been looking for someone on their team to take over the soon to be vacant partner spot and they've chosen Liam! The firm will now become Sterling-Duval-Harris. The pay increase is huge and Liam will get to have more time at home with me and the kids.

Pet- The whole family walked in on a rather shocking scene the other night. We were shocked to find Duke mounting Daisy! We quickly rushed the children out of the backyard and into the house. It seemed that Daisy had gone into her first heat and old Duke still had it in him. We were completely and utterly shocked and we took Daisy to the vet and kept doing so for a few months and sure enough she was pregnant! We prepared everything and had the vet over when Daisy had her puppies to make sure it all went okay and Daisy welcomed three little puppies, two boys and a girl. We had expected more but the vet explained due to Duke's age it wasn't that odd to have a smaller litter. We named the puppies Beau, Luke & Jessie. After that we made sure to get Hank, Duke and Daisy fixed and have an appointment for the puppies to get fixed as well as soon as they're old enough.

{Couple} William Noah [36] Charlotte Sofia [35]
{Pets} Hank [German Shepherd, 14] Duke [Golden Retriever, 10] Daisy [Golden Retriever, 3] Beau [Golden Retriever, 1] Luke [Golden Retriever, 1] Jessie [Golden Retriever, 1]

Mason Wyatt [4] Violet Audrey [3] Scarlett Olivia [3] Sophie Melody [2] Noah Francesco [2]

Moving - With our family having expanded so much in the past four years, nearly doubling, Liam and I decided even with as much work as we have put into the house it's time for us to move. As well as we'd like to switch the children over to a private school with all the extra money that Liam has been making as a partner now. We've also been told by the other two partners, Jeffery Sterling and Nicholas Duval, that a two-story house has opened up in their gated community. The house has 12 full bathrooms, 4 half bathrooms and 12 bedrooms. This means that even with everyone rooming how they'd like, in example Amelia and Annie sharing as well as Violet and Scarlett sharing we still have two free bedrooms to use as guest bedrooms. The backyard is huge, it has a pool with a slide, a play set/swing set, a tennis court which also doubles as a basketball court. The kitchen is huge and perfect for throwing dinner parties. We were sold just from one visit and moved in as quickly as we could.

Travel - What with moving being a little stressful on everyone as well as Summer holiday having started. Liam and I decided that a family vacation would be a good idea. We called up my parent, Roslyn and James, and asked them to come watch the Hank, Duke, Daisy, Beau, Luke and Jessie at the house while we were away and they agreed. We set up the plane fair and rented a nice house for 3 weeks and went to Orlando, Florida. We rented a couple of rooms in Disneyland for the last week of the vacation. Everyone enjoyed the surf and the sun and had a blast. No one enjoyed it more than Levi who freaked out in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. He spent at least three days just there and doing nothing else. Everyone had a fun time and I reflected on the last fifteen years of my life and realized even with all the sad moments. I wouldn't have traded any of it for the world.

The Pierce Family
DH: Maxwell James Pierce nn Max
--straight dark brown hair, green eyes
DW: Aurora Janelle Pierce nn Rory
--wavy blond hair, hazel eyes

Year One

Moving: After receiving their college degrees, Max (business management) and Rory (nursing) decide to make a life changing decision and move to a two-story townhouse in Greece.

Year Two

Child: While taking a drug test for her new job at the local hospital, the lab tech informs Rory that she is two months pregnant! She drives straight home to tell Max, who is ecstatic to find out he’s going to be a father. 7 months later on September 4th, they welcome a healthy baby girl—Violet Elodie Pierce. She has very curly dark brown hair and hazel eyes.

Year Three

Child: While attending a local festival, Max convinces Rory to have her fortune told. The card reader tells Rory that she is expecting another child. Sure enough, the cards were right and Max and Rory are expecting their second daughter. On February 25th, Primrose Kate Pierce joins the family. She has Rory’s mother and sisters’ wavy strawberry blonde hair and hazel eyes.

Year Four

Travel: The Pierce family takes their first family vacation back to the states to visit Max and Rory’s families in Chicago. Neither family members have had the chance to meet Violet and Prim, and are so excited by their arrival that they refuse to put them down. They spend most the time reuniting with family and friends.

Year Five

Moving: Once they arrive back to their home Max is offered a job in Athens, so the family packs up and moves into another two-story townhouse.

Year Six

Pet: For Violet’s 4th birthday, her parents decide to buy her a boston terrier puppy that she names Ariel, after her favorite Disney princess.

Year Seven

Pet: Rory is surprised when Max comes home with a new addition to the family—a three-year old great dane he found on his way home from work. He is already attached and has named him Alexander (the Great). Although Rory is reluctant to accept the enormous new family member, she agrees and the dog begins to grow on her.

Year Eight

Child: Rory fails to get pregnant after fertility drug treatment, since the couple has dreams of having a big family; they decide to adopt a close friend’s 9 month old baby boy, Yiorgos Spiros nn Yio. He has thick, wavy black hair and stunning green eyes.

Year Nine

Child: Surprise! Soon after the adoption of Yio is complete, Rory discovers that she is pregnant—with fraternal twin boys! Rory and Max are having trouble picking names, until Violet and Prim suggest their favorite Disney character—Sebastian. Rory unexpectedly goes into labor on Christmas Eve and the twins arrive early Christmas day. The family decides to celebrate by setting up a tree and opening presents in the hospital room. Boy 1 is named Sebastian Elliot Pierce and has wavy dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Boy 2 is named Solomon Michael Jett Pierce and has wavy dark brown hair and daddy’s green eyes.

Year Ten

Job: Max receives a generous raise from his work. It couldn’t have come at a better time with their rapidly growing family. They decided to use the money to set up college funds for each of their five children.

Year Eleven

Family Matter: Violet is now in first grade and Prim is off to kindergarten. With the two oldest out of the house for most of the day, Rory and Max enroll Yio, Sebastian, and Solomon in daycare so that Rory can go back to work at the hospital.

Year Twelve

Child: Right after Rory is returning back to work she is surprised to find out she is pregnant again. It makes it hard for her to continue work, so she quits her job and takes the kids out of daycare to become a stay at home mom. During her pregnancy, Rory becomes obsessed with the Harry Potter books and decides to name the new baby Hermione Willow Pierce. She arrives on April 6th and has straight dark brown hair and brown eyes.

Year Thirteen

Child: Immediately after the addition of Hermione, Rory and Max find out they’re expecting again—those fertility drugs have been kicking in lately. All of their family and friends throw the Pierces’ a surprise party celebrating their new baby. The whole family is glad to finally be surrounded by such a loving family. Max and Rory are excited to welcome their new baby girl, Natalia Claire Pierce on October 11th. She has straight blonde hair and Rory’s hazel eyes.

Year Fourteen

Child: While visiting Max’s great-grandmother over the holidays, she declares that Rory is expecting again. They are all baffled and think it must be a joke—a month later Rory realizes she was right and the Pierce family is expecting their last bundle of joy. Baby boy, Thaddeus Hudson Pierce nn Thadd, arrives on July 27th. He has a shock of straight red hair and pretty green eyes.

Year Fifteen

Random: The family is in desperate need of a new car to accommodate their large family. With so many children, their options are limited so they settle on a large, royal blue commercial van that can easily fit them and their eight children. Although it is far from Max’s dream Ferrari, the van will have to do.


Max [41] & Rory Pierce [39] w/
Children: Violet [13], Prim [12], Yio [8], Sebastian & Solomon [6], Hermione [3], Natalia [2], and Thadd [1]
Pets: Ariel and Alexander the Great

The Swanson Family


DH- Edward Ryan

born May 15, 1972~(straight, blonde hair + brown eyes)

DW- Laura Gwyneth

born August 23, 1972~(curly, dark brown hair + green eyes)


Year 1: April 1997

Ed (24), Laura (24)


What an interesting first year of marriage! We had our highs and lows but in the end we still adore each other. A month ago, Ed and I travelled six hours to see Stevie Wonder and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Unfortunately though it came right after Ed lost his job. His company was making cuts and because Ed was a relatively new employee, he was let go. At the moment he is still searching for a new job.


Year 2: June 1998

Ed (26), Laura (25)

Bear (2)


My sister is very involved with the local animal shelter and so recently she got Ed and I involved. We fell in love with a Husky-Lab mix and just had to bring him home. He is two years old and his name is Bear. Bad news came in the late winter when after months of feeling under the weather, Ed visited the doctor and found out he had a mild case of depression. Nothing a little therapy and sun couldnt fix!


Year 3: October 1999

Ed (27), Laura (27), Theo (2mos)

Bear (3)


Earlier this year Ed and I decided to take a long vacation to Hawaii. Instead of spending the winter in snow and slush we spent it happily in sand and waves of crystal blue water. This is our first time on the Island of Oahu and we absolutely love it. It was also on the Island that we found out we were pregnant. Theo Adrian was born on August 2nd, 1999. He arrived with a head of curly, blonde hair and curious blue eyes.


Year 4: September 2000

Ed (28), Laura (28), Theo (1)

Bear (4)


We`re having another baby! Ed and I found out about two months ago and had to quickly cancel out plans to go to Hawaii in February as February 10 is the due date of our baby girl. We were a little dissapointed but more than overjoyed to be having another baby. Lily Margaret is going to be welcomed warmly when she arrives. In expectation of a new baby we decided to move. We end up moving to a new city about an hour away from our old house but we are thrilled with our much larger two-storey condo.


Year 5: May 2001

Ed (29), Laura (28), Theo (21mos), Lily (3mos)

Bear (dec.)


February came with joy and sadness. Lily Margaret was born on February 7th, 2001 with straight, silky brown hair and brown eyes. However less than two weeks later Bear was hit by a car and died from his injuries. It was a time of celebration and mourning. Now we are working hard to get out of our condo in the next month so that the piping can be re-done. We will be living in a small two-storey house for about 11 months.


Year 6: February 2002

Ed (29), Laura (29), Theo (2.5), Lily (1)


Just before Lily`s first birthday, Ed and I get into the biggest fight we have ever had. I can hardly remember what it was about but I think it started over what to get Lily for her birthday. It resulted in Ed leaving for two days to clear his head and think about the horrible things we said to each other. After spending two days distraught and missing him, Ed came home. We have a lot of reconciling to do before we can forget the fight but things are better. In happier news, I recieved a raise a couple of days ago which means we might be going on another trip to Hawaii!!


Year 7: November 2003

Ed (31), Laura (31), Theo (4), Lily (2.5), Tegan (1mos)


During March Ed and I both were able to take time away from our jobs and finally get that trip to Hawaii. We spent the two weeks relaxing and splashing in the pool and ocean. It was incredibly healing for mine and Ed`s relationship. It was also while vacationing that I told Ed the big news; I was pregnant! I was sure I was having a boy but our baby girl was born on October 14th, 2003 and we named her Tegan Alianna. She has wavy, brown hair and beautiful violet eyes. I have never seen eyes so gorgeous.


Year 8: July 2004

Ed (32), Laura (31), Theo (5), Lily (3), Tegan (9mos)


With a job as Food Writer I can do most of my articles from home. But in April I had to journey to the East Coast for a Lobster cooking competition. The food was delicious and the people were so friendly and accomodating. Ed was a little nervous at first to be home with the three kids but I know he had fun without Mommy around. Shortly after, Ed recieved the news that he was being transferred with a promotion to England. Nervewracking, of course, but a wonderful adventure none the less.


Year 9: March 2005

Ed (32), Laura (32), Theo (5.5), Lily (4), Tegan (17mos), Jake (3mos)

Panda (1)


In a whirlwind of events, I found out I was pregnant just before we left for England. Ed`s mother was furious and tried to stop us from leaving and depriving her of her sixteenth grandchild but we couldn`t not go. Jacob Ralph was born on December 28, 2004 with wavy, red hair and green eyes. He goes by Jake already. During a tobogganing adventure last month, Theo found a stray kitten almost freezing to death. Being the animal lovers that we are, we brough little Panda home.


Year 10: January 2006

Ed (33), Laura (33), Theo (6), Lily (5), Tegan (2), Jake (13mos)
Panda (2)


With four kids, we decided to finally upgrade from our two five seater cars; taking two cars everywhere was getting a little old. Ed kept his Honda CR-V and I traded in for a Volkswagen Touareg. Finally after a year and a half we find the perfect house for us in England. It`s near Ed`s work and in a perfect location to raise kids. Our new sprawling one-storey house is a huge upgrade from the cramped townhouse we had been living in.


Year 11: December 2007

Ed (35), Laura (35), Theo (8), Lily (6.5), Tegan (4), Jake (3)

Panda (3)


Although it is the holiday season, the food magazine I write for has been losing money. This means cutbacks, in the form of less magazine publications which in turn means a decrease in my pay. But with Ed`s excellent job, we wont be knocked too hardly. Because I have more time to drive arounf the kids, we enroll them all in a new acitivity. Theo takes up Martial Arts, Lily begins ballet, Tegan joins a soccer team and Jake tries out toddler gymnastics.


Year 12: September 2008

Ed (36), Laura (36), Theo (9), Lily (7.5), Hailey (5), Tegan (5), Jake (3.5)

Panda (4)


Something amazing happened this year! During the summer carnival there was a week-long contest for an all-expenses paid Mediterranean Cruise for two. All I had to do was bake a pie everyday and recieve high enough points for taste and presentation everyday. As well, another incredible thing happened this year. After keeping our plans to adopt a secret for the longest time, we finally told everyone when we got the news that we were going to be bringing home Haylie Bethany, a five year old girl from Ontario. She was born on June 29th, 2003, has curly, blonde hair and green eyes and fits right in with our family.


Year 13: June 2009

Ed (37), Laura (36), Theo (9.5), Lily (8), Hailey (6), Tegan (5.5), Jake (4.5), Derrick (1)

Panda (5)


Less than six months after bringing home Hailey, we recieve news that Hailey`s birth mother had another baby on May 25th, 2008. The adoption agency contacted us first to ask if we would like to adopt Derick Percy into our family. Immediately we say yes and in March we brought home Derrick, a brown haired, blue eyed baby boy. With six kids, Ed and I barely get time for ourselves and so when Grandma and Grandpa fly out to England for a month, Ed and I take the opportunity to spend a weekend in France on our own just relaxing.


Year 14: April 2010

Ed (37), Laura (37), Theo (10.5), Lily (9), Hailey (6.5), Tegan (6.5), Jake (5), Derrick (2)

Panda (6)


This year, Ed and I make the decision to put Theo, Lily, Hailey and Tegan in a French emersion school as we feel that having knowledge of two languages is important. Because the best French emersion school is almost an hour drive from our current we move from the suburbs closer to downtown. This makes Ed even closer to his job, however with real estate being pricier in the city we have to setlle on a large two-storey townhouse.


Year 15: February 2011

Ed (38), Laura (38), Theo (11), Lily (10), Hailey (7.5), Tegan (7), Jake (6), Derrick (2.5)

Panda (7), Georgie (6mos)


With no young babies in the house we decide to buy a present for the kids...a puppy from the SPCA! He is a pure beagle and the most adorable puppy ever. Theo and Lily choose the name Georgie for the new puppy. In the same month we got another addition to the house. My youngest sister Eloise came to live with us for two months while her fiance trained with the England Rugby Team. In regular Eloise fashion she showed up unannounced and dropped her bags on the front door step, God Love Her!


Year 16: August 2012

Ed (40), Laura (40), Theo (13), Lily (11), Hailey (9), Tegan (8.5), Jake (7.5), Derrick (4), Ryan (2mos)

Panda (8), Georgie (2)


Surprise, Surprise! I had another baby! Finding out we were pregnant was one of the most shocking things that ever happened to us but instantly that shock turned to joy. In fact the way we found out was even more shocking. I decided to donate blood at the local clinic but when they went to check my blood type they found I was pregnant. Ryan Archer Swanson was born on June 6th, 2012. His eyes are brown and his hair is curly and dark brown just like his Momma. After bringing home Ryan we realize just how crowded the townhouse is. After much contemplation Ed and I decide to splurge for a two-storey house.


Year 17: May 2013

Ed (41), Laura (40), Theo (13.5), Lily (12), Hailey (10), Tegan (9.5), Jake (8.5), Derrick (5), Ryan (11mos)

Panda (9), Georgie (3)


On the day of our anniversary, Ed was away on business trip to China. The kids were hard to manage on my own at first, but the older kids turned out to be a big help. Because Ed missed our anniversary he took my on a second honeymoon to Crete. It was breath-takingly romantic and knowing the kids were safe with my best friend really let us relax.


Year 18: March 2014

Ed (41), Laura (41), Theo (14.5), Lily (13), Hailey (10.5), Tegan (10.5), Jake (9), Derrick (5.5), Ryan (21mos), Nate (2wks)

Panda (10), Georgie (4)


The joy that came with the surprise of being pregnant with Ryan leads Ed and I to begin trying for one last baby. We have trouble conceiving and so we turn to fertility treatments which work right away. Born six weeks premature, and in the middle of a huge anniversary magazine publication, is our baby boy Nathaniel Xavier. He was born on March 10th, 2014 with straight, light brown hair and green eyes. Another plus came our way in December when I was granted a raise. The money went straight to paying off the house`s mortgage.


Year 19: November 2015

Ed (43), Laura (43), Theo (16), Lily (14.5), Hailey (12.5), Tegan (12), Jake (11), Derrick (7.5), Ryan (3.5), Nate (20mos)

Panda (11), Georgie (5), Fang


With the magazine picking up again and Ed becoming busier at work, we decided to put Nate into daycare. It was the youngest we`d ever put a child in daycare but Nate took to it right away. Unexpectedly, Hailey, Tegan and Jake expressed a dying desire to have a tarantula. With their fangs removed they are harmless and kept in a cage I wouldn`t have to deal with it, so we buy the kids a tarantula named Fang.


Year 20: December 2016

Ed (44), Laura (44), Theo (17), Lily (15), Hailey (13), Tegan (13), Jake (12), Derrick (8), Ryan (4), Nate (2)

Panda (12), Georgie (6), Fang


When Edward gets news that his company needs a contact in France, we have to make the difficult decision of whether to move or stay in England. Eventually we decide that Theo, Lily, Hailey and Tegan will stay in England with thier aunt Eloise who now lives in England and the four younger kids will come with us. We rent an apartment that fits our much smaller family of six quite well. It also helps that the temporary move comes with a raise!

Year 1


Evelyn (18) and James (20)


Moving- You temporarily move into a new city


Just after James and I were married, a hurricane tore through our home in Jacksonville, FL destroying much of our new home. So James and I moved into a new one story house in Pensacola, FL for the next 11 months until repairs were finished and it was safe to live there again. Many of our possessions we destroyed or washed away and we were left with almost nothing. Luckily, his military buddies and our families helped us through this difficult time and we were able to make it through much of the move without trouble and were able to live comfortably in our new home for the next year.



Year 2


Evelyn (19) and James (21)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (nb)


Job- SO gets a promotion! What type of promotion has he/she received?


James has received a promotion!! James was a Petty Officer 1st Class in the USN but recently earned the promotion to Chief Petty Officer!! This included a large pay raise and bonus vacation time and benefits!! We were waiting for this kind of break to begin planning a family!


Child- Give Birth to Twin Sons


I became pregnant almost immediately!! When I was 6 months pregnant with the twins my family threw me a lavish baby shower! I received many toys, sleepers, Pacifiers, bottles and formula, bibs and even two sets of cribs, changing tables and strollers! Everything was decorated in various shades of blue! Light blue streamers, tri-toned confetti, dark blue wrapping paper and of course blue baby clothes!! All of my family was there. My mother and all five of my younger siblings, along with my 12 cousins and my aunts and uncles! It was a wonderful party and it was so fun!

However, the twins decided that a two months more was as long as they were going to wait before making their appearance in the world and were born four weeks early!! James and I were at a Military Function on a Naval Ship just off the coast of Jacksonville, FL when I suddenly felt a few twinges across my stomach. Before I knew it, my contractions were hitting full force and James was frantic to get me off the ship and to the hospital. Unluckily enough, the ship was hours from docking and the twins were all to eager to make their way into the world. On the luckier side of things, the ship had a well stocked Medical Bay and there were several Naval Medics and various doctors aboard the ship and our identical twins, Lyle Alexander Morgan and Jonathan Castiel Morgan, were born on May 22nd in the Medical Bay of the ship. They have curly black hair and bright blue eyes!


Year 3


Evelyn (20) and James (22)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (1)


Random- Your pet has had babies!


When the twins were 8 months old our pit-bull, Loreley, had four puppies!! We did not know she was pregnant but gladly welcomed the puppies that would surely be plenty of fun!! The first born, a female named Plum, looks like her mother and has brindle fur and brown eyes. The next one is a male named Stark, who has red fur and amber eyes. Then another male named Thor was born, a golden colored puppy with blue eyes. And finally, Loki, another male with black fur and green eyes was born. We plan to give them away when they are old enough.


Travel- Second Honeymoon


When the twins were 11 months old James received a small raise decided we would take a short second honeymoon. So we packed our things and my mother offered to watch the boys while we had our week away in Paris, France! While in Paris we took many pictures and bought many souvenirs for the boys and the rest of the family! It was very romantic and James took to me to many museums and art galleries over the course of the trip! We, of course, saw many famous sites including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Moulin Rouge!


Year 4


Evelyn (21) and James (23)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (2)


and Caia Rose (nb)


Child- Give birth to a daughter.


Just after the twins turned 2, I found out I was pregnant again!! Later that year I gave birth to our daughter, Caia Rose Morgan, who was born July 30th and has curly blonde hair and blue eyes. Even though Caia was born on time, this did not stop her from having her own special story surrounding her birth!!


The second day in the hospital after Caia was born was hectic! Many mothers were rushed into labor and delivery and many more baby girls were born. The hospital was short handed and to save time one of the nurses gave Caia and another baby girl a bath at the same time. During their bath the tiny identity bracelets on both girls ankles slipped off and the nurse, panicked, hurriedly put the bracelets back on but ended up switching them!! Later that day, that same nurse brought in the baby she thought was Caia and upon changing her diaper, I discovered that the rose shaped birthmark that inspired her name was gone from her hip! James immediately called the nurse back in and informed her of the switch. Within the hour we had our Caia back, rose shaped birthmark and all, and the other family had their daughter returned.


Year 5


Evelyn (22) and James (24)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel, (3)


Caia Rose (1) and Lauren Noelle (nb)


Child- Give birth to a Baby Girl


Just before the twins third birthday, on April 31st, Lauren Noelle Morgan was born. She has curly red hair and green eyes. With Lauren's birth, my plans of doing much more charity work has been put on hold since I now have to take care of 3 year old twins, a one year old and now a newborn. With 4 small children in the house, space is becoming something of a rarity and a new house is severely needed, but whether we will be able to get it or not is an entirely different story.


Moved- Two-Story House


In a well placed miracle, we found a bigger house just a few blocks away from our current one! Its a large two story house with four bedrooms and large backyard for the children!! Within a month we were completely moved in and the twins had their own room while the girls shared another one. The spare bedroom was turned into a small playroom for the boys until if and when it was needed for another purpose.



Year 6


Evelyn (23) and James (25)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (4)


Caia Rose (2) and Lauren Noelle (1)


Random- You re-do your home!


We decided to redo the kitchen and dining room and add a fifth bedroom and a veranda as well as redo a few other rooms. James latest pay raise is what allowed us afford such large renovations! With children all over the house many of the carpeting and paint was worn down as well so all the bedrooms have been repainted and the whole house was re-carpeted or re-tiled as well. The children seem to approve of their newly colored rooms and spend much of their time working their way towards another renovation!! :)

Family Matter- Close Friend Dies


About halfway through the renovations, James received news that a close friend of his had died of of diagnosed colon cancer. Upon learning this, James insisted that we get ourselves and all of the children thorough check ups and be sure that we were absolutely healthy. Thankfully we were and James and I resolved to begin a new regimen of healthy eating and other healthy habits to keep up our health so the we wouldn't suddenly leave our children without a parent or sibling.



Year 7

Evelyn (24) and James (26)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (5)


Caia Rose (3) and Lauren Noelle (2)


Family Matters- A relative moves in with you.


At this point we are very glad to have added another bedroom! My younger brother, Ethan Paul (22), has moved in since our mothers house has no more room now that our four other young siblings are getting older. Our girls are still young enough to continue comfortably sharing a room, which makes the newest bedroom my brothers for the time being. He doesn't know how long he will be staying with us, as he has never had a stable job. He gets along well James, the twins and the girls so I offered to let him stay as I could use an extra hand with the heavy chores and children while James is away for work.


Travel- A night out


A few months after Paul moves in James and I are invited to a night out by our friends. Paul agrees to watch the children and we go out to a movie and dinner with out friends. We have a great time and spend much of the night catching up with each other. By the time we make it home, the children are all in bed and Paul is asleep in the couch covered in formula, drool and children's toys!




Year 8


Evelyn (25) and James (27)


Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (6)


Caia Rose (4) , Lauren Noelle (2) and Jean-Paul Marcello (nb)


Child- You give birth to a baby boy!


James and I figure that its about time we consider a lengthy kind of birth control for on Christmas Day, Jean-Paul Marcello Morgan is born!! Our bouncing baby boy has wavy red hair and was born with Heterochromia, a condition where his left eye is brown and his right eye is blue. Jean-Paul is named for his Uncle Paul, who helped me greatly during my slightly difficult pregnancy while James was often away for work. Jean-Paul and his uncle even share the Heterochromia condition! The twins no longer have a playroom as it has now been converted to a nursery for Jean-Paul, but they don't mind, as all the children are greatly interested in their new brother!!


Job- Got a new one


Within months of Jean-Paul's birth, my brother finds a job at a nearby music store and soon promoted to manager! This allows him enough money to begin renting an apartment just down the block and within a two minute walk of our house! While the children are sad that their uncle is moving out, they are still happy that he is still so close to them and they can still play.


Year 9

Lyle Alexander and Jonathan Castiel (7)


Caia Rose (5) , Lauren Noelle (4) and Jean-Paul Marcello (1)



Pet- Your family wants a new pet, however, you all have your own ideas as to what type of pet to get.


With the Lyle and Castiel nearing 7, Caia now 5, Lauren nearly 4 and Jean-Paul almost one, we decide its a good time to get another pet since Loreley is getting older. The twins want another dog, Caia wants a rabbit while Lauren is partial to birds and James want a snake! When we arrive at the pet store Jean-Paul begins to get excited over a small furball in a corner pen. When James sets him down, Jean-Paul reaches his fingers though the cage which results in a very small tabby kitten nuzzling Jean-Paul's hand. So in the end our son was the one our new kitten chose!!! We named him Nova and all the children and Loreley adore him and his addition to the abundance of youthful energy in our home.


Random- New Car


By now is is obvious that we need either another car or at least a bigger one! We opt to trade in our old car for a newer model for James to take to work. While buying a newer car, a van, all together to transport the children in. This makes getting the children to school and around town much easier and relieves a little of the hectic feel of getting the children around.

*Michael Henry (3) and *Elizabetta Jane (Preemie-Nb)



Family Matter- A family member has died leaving two children. You offer to adopt them and raise them as your own.


Upon the twins turning 8, Caia now 6, Lauren aged 5 and Jean-Paul nearing 2, we received tragic news from James' Grandmother. His sister, Elizabeth (25) had been killed in a hit and run accident. She was a single mother of a 3 year old son named Michael Henry and at the time of her death had been 7 months pregnant with a little girl who is now in neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU). James and I arranged to make the 2 hour trip across the state to see the children and arrange their adoption into our family, leaving our brood of five with my brother until we arrived at the hospital. Upon arriving we were informed that the baby girl had not yet been named. One look at her and we both knew her name would be Elizabetta, since she looked nearly identical to her mother. Within a week, the arrangements had been made for the adoption and Michael Henry Colin-Morgan and Elizabetta Jane Colin-Morgan joined our family. Michael has straight light brown hair and brown eyes while Elizabetta has a little bit of wavy blonde hair and blue eyes. Though it will be a few months before Elizabetta can come home, the other children are anxious for her to join the household.


Random- Home Renovation


Within a month of Michael and Elizabetta joining the family, we decide to do a little more home renovation. My brothers old room had become Jean-Paul's which he now shared with Michael and his old nursery became Elizabetta's for when she would finally come home in a few weeks. We decided to add another bedroom downstairs that would be for me and James, which would leave our old upstairs bedroom available for when one of the children tired of sharing a room with their sibling.

Pet- Take in a Stray


On one of the rare trips to the park with all of the children, Lyle and Castiel discover a puppy abandoned by the slides. It a small thing and the boys beg James and I to keep it, within minutes the rest of the children are at their side with even 11 month old Elizabetta making noises of agreement with her brothers and sisters. Upon agreeing to keep the puppy, we discover it is a dachshund and the twins name it Quazar.


Child- Give Birth to a Baby Girl


A few months later James and I discover that, despite our strict regimen of birth control, I have become pregnant again and didn't realize it until I was nearly 4 months along! This discovery caused friction between our parents as both wanted to be there for this particular child's birth. James had been estranged from his parents since Lauren was born and James decided that my mother would be the one to attend the birth while my siblings watched our other children. Soon after, on October 15th, Bailey Liliana Morgan was born! She has wavy blonde hair and brown eyes. We made the only spare bedroom into a nursery once again and continued to cherish the love and energy of our large brood!

Family Matter- Family Member Died


When Liliana was just over 9 months old we received news of another tragedy. James' step-grandfather had passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's. This only strengthened our conviction in healthy eating and habits and we began to teach our children more of these habits as well.


Child- Give Birth to Twin Girls


Another surprise came on Liliana's 1st birthday. I was pregnant.....AGAIN!!! At my 10 week ultrasound we get another surprise, it was identical twins!! Throughout this pregnancy, my mother-in-law felt it to be a good time to criticize the way I raised my children, say her way was better and that I should raise them her way! Which was crazy because for all of her children she was gone for weeks at a time on binges throughout their entire lives and refused to take her grandchildren, Michael and Elizabetta, in after her daughter died! After setting her straight and telling to get a different outlook before coming back, I went back to managing my pregnancy which her meddling had only increased in risk. Finally, on September 16th, Trinity Grace and Serenity Faith were born!! They both have wavy black hair and brown eyes.

-Child- Miscarried


Within 5 months of the twins birth, I discovered I was pregnant again. While this worried James and I, we loved our children and he had gotten, and was due, for many pay raises and promotions and we knew we could care for another child. But when my 16 week ultra sound came up the doctor found no heartbeat and it was determined that I had miscarried, most likely from the hectic lifestyle I led from caring for so many children and my slight tendency for higher risk pregnancy. Though it devastated James and I, the children were particularly saddened that they wouldn't be receiving another sibling.


Random- See a Concert


A few months after my miscarriage I got the opportunity to see Blackmore's Night in concert!

Child- Adoption


James seems to be a little depressed after my miscarriage and I can tell that despite the large brood we sport now, that he would like more children. So we got to talking and we decide to adopt a child again, but this time from outside our relatives. After a lengthy screening process we find our perfect match in a shy little boy named Kaiden Abel who we immediately nicknamed "Kabe". The little 3 year old has very curly brown hair and green eyes! He was at first discouraged as a choice for us because he was a "problem child" who didn't socialize well with other children and fought often as a result of trust issues at being abandoned repeatedly by his mother. We refused to consider any other child until we at least met him and within a week, on June 11th which also happened to be Kabe's birthday, we were bringing him home and our whole brood was outside waiting for their new brother. The minute he stepped outside the car he was swarmed and swept away in hugs and kisses from the children. Then we heard giggling from the center of the hug-fest and we were delighted to see that is was Kabe!!!


Family Matters- Near Death Experience


Five months after adopting Kabe, I caught a rare virus that put me in critical condition and unable to interact with my family or even stay awake. Luckily the medication they gave me began to work and I was brought back from the brink. When I awoke I found my family around me, dozing, except for Kabe, upon looking around I found him standing away from them with the same look on his face we saw at the adoption agency. I whispered his name and immediately his happy and relieved shout of " Mommy!" woke the rest of the family. After this experience I've decided that I will never let my children feel alone or unloved, to tell them everyday that I loved them.

*Kaiden Abel -Kabe- (4) and *Madelyne Winter -Maddie- (2)



Child- Adoption


A year after we adopt Kabe, we all unanimously agreed to adopt another child. This time the agency suggested we have children come to us, to see if they would feel comfortable around so many other children. We agree and once again, the first little one to walk through our door seems like an angel meant just for us. The minute Madelyne Winter Morgan stepped through our door all our hearts burst! Kabe was the first to approach her, and to the agent's shock, grab the little girl up in a hug and say " Welcome Home!". After that Maddie was passed around from member to member and hugged. When the agent asked her how she liked it she only smiled and hugged Kabe again. So then the little blue eyed and curly haired blonde was ours!


Random- Achieve Life-Long Goal


I finally achieved my biggest life long goal!! To have and love a large family full of children, no matter how they entered the family!! My husband and I have 12 amazing children and a wonderful husband! My life is perfect!!!

Callie Elizabeth and Joshua Mason - The Parker Life

Year 1- Me and Josh met on New Years Day and never left each other side, the day we moved in together, Josh came home with a fighting fish to make our house feel like home. Josh, let me name him. He secretly regretted that when I named him Sparkles.

Year 2- Josh got a big opportunity to study with some of the worlds best doctors, so we packed up our life in Australia and heading to Seattle in the US.

Year 3- This year we became a real family and welcomed a baby boy. Josh missed the birth of our little guy, because his car broke down in the middle of nowhere as he had been out of town at a meeting when I went into labor. Josh didnt mind though, he aint a fan of blood and pain. Logan Dante was born on the 15th June, with straight black hair and brown eyes. Logan was my favourite name and Dante was the name I fell in love with when we met this charming waiter while on a stop over in Italy.

Year 4- This year was very quiet, we enjoyed life with our little Logan, while Josh worked hard to earn a recidency at the local hospital. for my 21st birthday, My best mate Hannah and I spent the day at a beauty retreat while Josh organised a surprise party with all my new friends.

Year 5- I hadnt been working since Logan came along but out of the blue, I recieved a phone call from my previous childcare centre offering me a position back as well as a position for the now 2 year old Logan.

Year 6- My boss sent me on a business trip to New York to spend some time in 24hr childcare centres to help with the new changes the centre wanted to bring in, with Josh's schedule so unpredictable, 3 year old Logan joined me and had fun making new friends in the 2 weeks we were there. We miss Daddy lots!

Year 7- on our 7th anniversary we found out we were having another baby, we were so excited when our baby girl came along, both our parents were just as excited they wanted to be in the delivery room as they had flown over from Australia, but since Josh missed the first birth, I wanted it to be special between us. I promised they could come in the minute she was born though. June was our month, cause our Amelia Jade was born on the 30th with black straight hair and blue eyes. She was named after her Great grandma Milly who had passed away a year before and Jade after her new Godmother.

Year 8- 5 year old Logan went shopping with Josh and came home with a puppy dog, that Mummy had been saying 'no' too but apparently the "puppy" followed them home, too bad Josh paid with his credit card. Scout the saint bernard became apart of the Parker family.

Year 9- To add to Sparkles the fish and Scout the puppy. Josh found a baby turtle on the road when he was driving home in a rain shower. He pulled into our drive way and noticed something unusual in a puddle on the road. He saved it, brought a tank and we kept it. Milly called it Timmy, from a song she sang at daycare.

Year 10- Josh had to fly to London for a month long business trip this year, Logan now 7, took it hard, he just wanted his Dad home. I missed Josh too, but with the 2 kids, 3 animals and a full time job. Time actually flew

Year 11- This year Josh had a 3 month long business trip, this time me and the kids accompanied him for 6 weeks as it was back in our home of Australia. We hadnt been back in 10 years. It was so much fun for everyone to meet Logan and Milly.

Year 12- After our trip home, we all became incredibly homesick, it was only faith that Josh got a call from his old hospital asking if he was interested in running the hospital. It was the best possible opportunity and although I had to leave my amazing job and best friend we made the move back home.

Year 13- I was starting to loose heart secretly as I always wanted a big family and with Logan being 10 and Milly turning 6, I thought this would be it. But to my surprise I fell pregnant but didnt find out until I was 5 months gone. Oscar "Oussie" James was welcomed to the family on December 1st, with brown straight hair and brown eyes. We decided on Oussie to reflect our Australian heritage, as we loved having our first aussie baby.

Year 14- After 2 years running the local hospital, Josh got a job offer in a bigger hospital. We were all very thrilled for him

Year 15- This summer, Josh's sister Amy and her partner Ryan had a big business trip to expand there business, so we took on there 5 kids, Alexander Jacob, 15 Jonathon Ryan, 13 Ruby Kara, 8 Alanna Jane, 5 and Harry John 3. It was a busy summer with our house expanded from 3 to 8 kids. It was fun and very quiet when my sister in law returned home. Maybe we will have to add to this family in the near future.

After 15 years - Callie Elizabeth 32 and Joshua Mason 32
with Logan Dante 12, Amelia Jade 8 and Oscar James 2.
Sparkles, Scout and Timmy
