Create Your Dream Family
Posted 22 August 2009 - 06:36 PM
But this time, you don't have to choose names from a list or have a set number of kids.
Its your turn to create your ideal family. Choose your favorite combos, sib sets, or even use a family you created for a story you wrote. Be creative and if you want, include pictures and stories.

Jackson Cramer Timothy was in love with the water. He stopped being called Jackson at 5. He turned into Jay. Ever since he was 4, he has loved scary movies, and swimming. When he turned 7, we put him on dive team, swim team, and crew team. His dream was to be the next Michael Phelps. But that dream was ruined when, at 15, he broke his foot, at his job at the bowling alley. It hurt him to be in the water and kick. He is in therapy until he turns 18, when he is pretty much better. At 20, he is studyin at NCLU for dramatic writing. I am going to be thirty nine in my fantasy. So right now, I am 39. (fantasizing)
Marisa Susane is a triathalon maniac. In the fall, winter, and spring, she trains kids ages 7 to 10 for triathalons. She is 17 now. In the summer, she does triathalons herself. She is so into training that she has only had one boyfriend. She has been on track, cross country, swim team, and riding bikes all her life. She has at least one triathalon a week, and she uses all the money she earns training little kids, and hires a personal trainer for triathalon season.
Adam Lawrence is now sixteen. He does bike races all year round. Not motorcycles, not BMX, just regular mountain bikes. He also does sailing in the summer. He is such a lady's man. He has had a bunch of girlfriends, but is responsible about sex. He works at Baskin Robbins for money to go on dates. He is very serious about this one girl who he has been dating for a year and a half now.
Adam's twin, Alexis Kate, has been dancing since Mommy and Me classes at just two years old. She began to grow out of regular ballet and tap, and has done hoopdancing since she was 12. Hoopdancing is when you have a big hula hoop, and you have to keep it going while you dance with the same moves as the rest of your team. She does it recreationally in the fall, and competitively year round.
Nina Catherine is 15, and is a very accomplished, competitive rock climber. She does indoor rock climbing year round and works at Cold Stone part-time. She has achieved many awards and medals at competitions nationwide. She began when she was 5, and it all started at a friend's birthday party. We got her a membership, so she can go training whenever she pleases. She has the diabetes that runs in the family, but we live a fairly healthy lifestyle, so she has never had a problem.
Benevolence Catherine is 15 also, they are twins. Ben always hated competition, so she has never played a sport. She does work out at our home gym and American Family at least hours per day. She also does violin, guitar, and flute. She has had many concerts, but she has always turned down concerts with prizes. The gym is her home away from home, and she loves it there.
Isabel Jennifer, or Belly, is 14 and a great Ballroom Dancing. When she was 5, she was hooked on Dancing with the Stars and wanted to be on that show. We put her in all the ballroom dancing classes available. She has gotten lots of awards and still has the dream of being on Dancing with the Stars. She does this year round, but competition season is May through August.
Sandra Gail is twelve, and she is a champion skiier. She grew her interest at 3, when we went skiing with my brother and his family. We hired her a home-schooler, who travels with her and teaches her all year. In the winter, she lives with her aunt and uncle in Utah, so she can do all the competitions and train. We come down every competition. She has only won first place 6 times, but we are always there to support her.
Winifred Lauren is 11, and she is really into kayaking, canoe-ing, and pedal boating. We have all three of those boats for her to practice on after crew team practice. She wakes up and bikes to the boathouse and her team goes and practices on the water for 3 hours straight. When she comes home, we feed her lunch and she goes boating some more. She never gets tired of it. It takes place in fall, spring and summer. Her team is pretty much undefeated.
Jemma Brenda is 10, and she has been played soccer since kindergarten. She started doing Speedminton (competitive badminton) after recess in first grade. She does recreational soccer in the fall, and Speedminton in the spring and summer. She is very passionate about what she does, but has an even bigger love for animals. She volunteers at the shelter and she comes to work with me every day she doesn't have school. Every year, she has a birthday party on the farm.
Kevin Marcus, 9, has always loved the idea of beating people up. I signed him up for Kendo (Japanese martial arts) at age 5, because it is very strategic and non-violent. The idea of the game is to yell either wrist, waist, or head. There is a lot of safety so I am comfortable with him doing it. Other things he loves are going on the pontoon boat with the family and visiting his grandparents.
Joseph Peter, is 8, and everyone calls him Joey. He loves sailing, but because he isn't old enough, we bought him a boat to practice on with an adult and we send him to sailing camp every summer. Because he can't do it year round, I let him do baseball in the spring. He is very smart and is great in school. We don't even have to tell him to do his homework.
Leo Jeremy, 6, isn't at all competitive, so we made him do something active that doesn't have any competition in it. He chose yoga, and he just sits on the back porch for hours meditating and practicing poses. You might think he is gay, because he is into yoga, but he has a lot friends that are girls, because of yoga. He has a girlfriend and he took her to the pumpkin patch last year! He is so cute!
Marigold Grace has picked up the nickname Maggie in the 6 months she's been in this world. I plan on potty-training her, teaching her how to walk, talk, and then... Mommy and Me classes. But this time, not dance, but gymnastics! I can't wait to see Maggie tumble her way to the olympics!
(This is completely fictional, and most of these names came out of several stories I have written.)
That is my dream family!

--I'm super bored, so this is going to be LONG-- (;
(38) DH: Eli David -Born 8th September 1992
(38) DW: Yasmine ___ -Born 21st November 1992
Eli and Yasmine met at the age of 16, when she moved to live with her father in the North of Israel. She had to move schools, and therefore met him on her first day. She thought he was cute, and he thought she was short. It was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. She was shy, and he was quite out-spoken, the class clown. They started hanging out outside of school, and soon began dating. Their relationship lasted through her 2 years (And his 3 years of service) in the army. After, they both decided to move to the US, to the same University in California. Her studying childcare and French, minoring in Art and English, and him studying Psychology, and minoring in Chemistry and Physics. In their second year of university, Yasmine found out she was pregnant. (both her and Eli were 23 at the time). She told Eli and he said he'd support her all the way.
Her and Eli bought an appartment a couple of streets down from the campus (Near a good nursery) and started to set up for the baby..
The couple was worried, but they knew that they could do this. It would be hard, but they were both mature and could handle this. At her 20 week scan, they found out that it was not only one baby.. it was 2! Yasmine and Eli were having twin girls!
At one point (When she was 5 months gone) Yasmine thought about adoption, but when it came down to it, she knew that she couldn't give up her babies. The babies were due in December, so the nursery was already set up; hospital bag at the ready. The twins arrived 1 month early, at 2:35pm.
(15) DD/DD: Amelie Rose and Eden Violet nn. Milly and Edie. -Born 12th November
Milly is the quiet and relaxed child. She takes everything in her stride and rearly get's angry. She is very into ballet and modern art; visiting the art galleries in the area whenever she can!! Her favourite colour is brown.. and she has big brown eyes to match! Milly is on the cheer-leading team, and she helps out at the local dance studio on week-ends. Amelie has decided that she want's to be a dance teacher when she grows up.
Edie is the hyper one. She was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 6, and has to take ritellin for her frequent 'outbursts' - as her mother calls them. (: She is very sporty, though prefers swimming, running and basketball over ballet and tap. Her favourite colour is red, and she LOVES to eat red skittles -though her mother doesn't let her have much food with E-numbers... Eden has a part-time job at a nursery near-by, where Tommy used to attend. She says she want's to be a kidnergarten teacher -Like her mother- when she finishes high-school.
When Eli and Yas had finished University, and Amelie and Eden were 2, they moved to a small town in North Carolina.
When the twins were 6, Yasmine and Eli decided that they were ready to try for another child. Yasmine was working as a Kidnergarten teacher at the local school, Eli worked at a Forensics lab 30 minutes away (Which paid considerably well) and the twins were in day-care. 4 months later, Yasmine fell pregnant. 9 months later, they had a beautiful, healthy baby girl! They named her Madeline "Maddie" Honor.
(9) DD: Madeline Honor nn. Maddie. -Born 8th July .
Maddie is an angel. (: She LOVES the colour Pink and loves to dance! She's also very into children, and reads to Tommy every night.. She looks up to her sisters, and think's that ballet was the best thing ever invented -other than her mother's white-chocolate-chip-cookies, ofcourse. She has decided that when she's older, she wants to be a model, because her mummy and daddy tell her she's beautiful -and they know best!- (;
When Maddie was 2, Yasmine and Eli decided to try for their last child. They thought 4 children would be a perfect number, and 9 months later, they welcomed what they thought, was their last child. Noah Alexander.
(7) DS: Noah Alexander -Born July 31st .
Noah is the typical boy. He loves to play football with his dad and Edie, and he goes on camping trips with his dad once every 4 months. (; And he has his mother wrapped around his little finger.. and his sister's too! Though he's young, he is already protective of Tommy -and his mama wouldn't have it any other way!
3 years after Noah was born, when the twins were 11 and Maddie was 5, Yasmine and Eli went to Yasmine's brother Ben's 22nd birthday, one thing led to another.. and 3 months later, the couple found out they were pregnant! They decided that they would keep the baby, and 5 1/2 months later, they welcomed Thomas Nathaniel.
(4) DS: Thomas Nathaniel nn. Tommy. -Born October 4th .
Thomas was named after Tom, Yasmine's sister's (Danielle) boyfriend, who she promised to name a child after at the age of 15, and Yasmine's favourite uncle (Nathan).
Tommy is a very sweet and quiet child, much like his eldest sister Milly. He prefers to play alone, though he loves to play with Tommy, and idolises Maddie. Though only 4, he can read and write at a 6 year olds lever. He spends his time reading Mr. Men books, and 'playing' on the computer.. When his daddy asked him what he would like to be when he was older, he replied that he wanted to be a scientist, 'cause they have cool outfits. (;

My Dream Story! Very Long!
When I was 15 and in the 10th grade but suppose to be in the 11th. (Had a bad last couple of months the previous year). I was in Mr. Loftis’ American History Class when one a new kid walked in and literally made my jaw drop. He had the most beautiful hazel-brown eyes, a gorgeous smile with perfect teeth. I think he made every girl in the class room hearts miss a beat, because I know mine did. He introduced himself as Robert Haven. He explains that he had switched to this school because his family moved. He had the rep of being a bad boy and class clown that he intended to keep. While I was the girl who got along with everyone while still having a bit of a rebel side. I was very outspoken whether it was mean or not.
We never really talked until one day in history class we had a discussion on WWII. My all time favorite History subject. While I was responding to something that our teacher had said, he piped in and decided to debate with me. We argued until class was over and afterwards as well. Slowly the argument turned into a normal conversation and we soon found out we had a lot in common. We got along incredibly well. And started seeing more of each other. But nothing more than just friends. This disappointed me very much cause I more than just “friend” feelings. He was the type that had a different girlfriend every week. Well the school year came to an end and during the summer we drifted apart and didn’t see each other until the next school year where we ended up having three classes together plus lunch and study hall. On our first day back he informed be that he was going to be a daddy. That he had met a girl and was seeing her over the summer. My heart broke because I knew I was in love with boy. But figured he was going to be with her because of the baby. Well he told me they where no longer together even before he found out she was pregnant. But he decided to be a man and take the responsibility of being a father. On June 25th 1991 he became a father to a beautiful baby girl who they named Faithlynn Marie Haven. He asked if I would like to be the god mother to his beautiful little girl. I agreed. From the moment I held her for the first time I fell in love with her. And even more in love with him but couldn’t tell him that, I was too scared.
He was working and going to school on top of being a full time father.
I started spending more and more time with him and faith. We enjoyed each other’s company. One night we were celebrating his new promotion and everything hit the floor. I spilled my guts to him on how I was in love with him and had been since the day in 10th grade history when we were arguing. He then proceed that he too as in love with me but didn’t know if it was what I wanted because he has a daughter by another girl I told him that seeing him with faith made me fall in love with him even more and that I loved faith so much that I wouldn’t know what to do without her in my life. We graduated the next year 2 weeks before faiths 1st birthday. On graduation day, he proposed to me on stage in front of our entire graduating class. And obviously I had said yes. I moved in the following month.
We got married September 30th 1992. About three weeks after the wedding I discover that I was pregnant and was terrified because we were both working full time jobs and neither of us where in college. When I told him the news he was ecstatic and made me look at the entire thing in a different perspective. And slowly I came happy and looking forward to having a child of my own.
In March of 1993 we found out that we were expecting a little boy. Whom we decided to name after his daddy. Robert James Haven was born August 13th 1993. I became s stay at home mom for the first year of Bobby’s life. When Bobby was 1 ½, I discovered I was pregnant with Twins. A little girl we named Nevah Anna Haven. And a little boy we named Thaden Rogue Haven.
They were born November 12th 1995. When the twins were 5 months I started going to school for child care management. While Bobby Senior was working and going to school for criminal justice. Bobby graduated on April 17th 1996 which happened to be my 23rd birthday. Bobby decided that he wanted another baby for his graduations present and was willing to wait the 9 months it would take. Well we had some complications. And I couldn’t conceive properly. We conceived twice and miscarried twice. So we decided to adopt. We adopted a little girl from Italy named Micha Shavon Haven. She was such a precious little baby and I couldn’t have been happier.
Bobby took a job at Homeland Security in New York in May of 1997. After we moved there and got adjusted the best thing that could happen happened. I was pregnant. Again with a little boy.
We decided to name him Rylie Dee Haven. Dee, after Bobby Senior’s father. Rylie was born two month too early. And While I was home with the others during the day Bobby spent day and night there making sure that Rylie had everything he needed he didn’t leave that nursery window. Rylie came home three weeks after being born. And he has been a daddy’s boy ever since.
I finished school when Rylie was 1 ½. And I decided that I would stay home with the children. We were always so happy. Bobby and I decided to take the honeymoon we never had. When we got back we decided that we think we should hold off on anymore children till Rylie was a bit older.
When Rylie was 5 he kept bugging us about having a little brother. Bobby and I started talking and decide that now is as good as any to try again. Two months later we found out I was pregnant and with Twins AGAIN! A little boy and a little girl. Wesley Michael Haven and Ayla Rae Haven. After Ayla and Wesley were born we decided they were the last and I got my tubes tied.
In 2004 when the twins Wesley and Ayla where almost one I got scared I thought I was hitting menopause early cause I missed my period and was always really nauseas. I knew I couldn’t be pregnant because I got my tubes tied. Well I went to the doctors and it turned out that I was indeed pregnant again. I guess God had other plans for our family. On Christmas day of 2004 I gave birth to a beautiful little girl whom we named Rosaline Gia Haven. And again decided to have my tubes tied. This time it indeed worked.
Faith is now 13. A bouncy little girl who sometimes acts like one of the boys. Then ten minutes later is complaining because she can’t date.
Bobby Jr. is 11. He’s into sports big time especially ice hockey. He’s a little ladies man and looks just like his daddy.
Thaden and Nevah are 9. They are as different as day and night. Thaden is very shy where Nevah is very loud and bubbly.
Micha is 8. Is the loudest and energetic of the clan. You can’t get her to stop talking or to stop asking questions. She has a big interest in Italy.
Rylie is now 7. Rylie wants to be a doctor” who fixes babies like the doctor who fixed him” When he say this it brings tears to my eyes.
And Wesley and Ayla are about to be 1. They are just giggle boxes and the happiest babied I have ever seen. They are identical the only difference is Ayla has a birth mark right behind her left ear.
Bobby is now in a desk job for Homeland Security.
And As of 2006 I’ll have my own daycare.

DD: Carrie Isabella (19)
Carrie is 19 years old and already has her life ahead of her. She is gorgeous and has already been approached by a number of big modeling agencies. She has already done print adverts for the likes of H&M and Miss. Selfridge's. She has had a number of offers from boys, but she is not interested in them at the moment. She also has shortened her name to Carrie Wynn as it gets too confusing when trying to print her name. Despite her being a model, she has conquered the stereotype by being a straight A student in her A-Levels where she studied English, Psychology, Biology & Sociology.
DD: Louisa Elizabeth (17)
Louisa looks completely different to the rest of the family. This is because at every possible chance she goes on holiday to Surf. Surfing is her passion and she out performs many of the boys and men that do it. Many people get a shock when they realise that she is a girl. She has just finished her first year at Six-Form studying Geography, Sociology, Media Studies and Physical Fitness. She would like to grow up to become a Physical Education teacher.

DW: Primrose Amelia "Prim"
DH: Griffin Oliver "Griff"
Ashland University! I can't believe I'm finally here! After three years of planning and dreaming, I'm finally in college. My dad was grumbling as he trudged up the stairs behind me, carrying the large duffel bag that held most of my clothes. I had a crate full of my stuff for my desk, and a few knick- nacks. The room was small but comfortable with two loft beds with desks underneath. There was also a futon with a small stand that a television set would fit onto perfectly. I threw my stuff onto the desk farthest from the door and walked over to the window. I pulled back the curtains to see the side of another dorm. Well, so much for the view but I was only a freshman and the view could only get better from here, right?
"Hey, Anybody home?" A tall girl with impossibly long tan legs and long dark brown hair was standing in the doorway holding a bag full of what looked like bed linens.
"Hi! I'm Prim. I guess we're roommates." I held out my hand which she took and smiled, revealing perfect white teeth.
"I'm Ginny and this is my brother Griff." She said as an amazingly handsome guy walked up behind her. He was pale but not ghostly white with brown hair so dark it almost looked black. He smiled and his teeth were just like his sisters. My knees almost buckled when I looked into his eyes, they were a grey so dark that they almost looked black. His hair was a mess of curls that fell nonchalantly into his eyes. I swear if we were in the 1920's I would have swooned. Heck it was 2012 and I was almost swooning!
Griff and I talked for the rest of the day as he helped to get Ginny and I moved in. He had a sarcastic sense of humor much like my own. He was a twenty year old pre-med student at University of Pittsburgh and hoped to go to med school there as well. He wanted to be a cancer specialist because ovarian cancer killed his mother when he was 16. At the end of the day, I didn't want to see him leave but I gave him my cell phone number and we started texting almost immediately.
We were soon dating and spent every free minute we could together. On break he would drive from his hometown to mine which we're an hour apart. We were falling in love and Ginny thought it was great.
Ginny and I had gotten to be really good friends over the past four years and at our graduation we couldn't believe that we wouldn't be living together anymore.
We were away from each other from two weeks when Griff and Ginny surprised me with a visit! I should have noticed when Griff wanted to take me out to dinner just the two of us but I was so excited to see my best friend and my boyfriend that I didn't think anything of it. That night at dinner, he gave me an even bigger surprise. He asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes and the next June we were married in a beautiful flower garden.
Griff still had his residency to become a doctor but we were happy. I had gotten a job as a drama teacher in a local school district and I loved it. We hadn't really talked about kids but after three years of marriage, our happy little family of two became a family of four!
DS/DD: Truth Alexandra/ Sampson Oliver (23)
Tru is very musical and dramatic just like her mother. She has been in plays since she was four and lives for the thrill she gets from applause. She is currently pursueing an acting carrer and has recently starred in a few productions with the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera.
Sam is a jock. He plays football, baseball, basketball, and loves to run. He is currently playing all of them in college at his father's alma mater, Pitt.
We were a happy family of four but we knew that we wanted more children. The one thing we were concerned about was multiples ran in both of our families. We decided that we would handle multiples as they came and tried for another baby two years later. We were blessed with one little girl.
DD: Honor Geneva (20)
Honor is our little scholar. She was excepted into Harvard and is going to be a nuclear physicist. She loves science and chemistry.
Our family of five was great. I loved being a mom although balancing drama practice and kids was a little difficult at times. Ginny lived right next door with her husband James and their new baby, Adrian Thomas. Ginny was a great mom but every mom needs to get away occasionally so one night James and Ginny left Adrian with us and went out to dinner.
On the way home a drunk driver hit them head on going hundred and ten miles an hour. He killed both of them instantly. So we adopted Adrian.
DS: Adrian Thomas (19)
Adrian is a jock just like Sam but he also sings and acts like Tru. He also makes honor roll every semester and is basically as well rounded as you can get. He is quiet but not shy and gives hundred and ten percent to everything he does!
We were a happy family of six but Adrian felt a little left out because he was the only adopted one of our kids. So we looked into adopting when we met Jude Isaiah. A spunky, outgoing kid. He was 7 when we adopted him and fit perfectly with our family. He is the comedian and has started playing comedy clubs in the area.
DS: Jude Isaiah (17)
We are now a happy family of seven. We are currently awaiting the birth of our first grandchild! Sam and his wife Eliza are expecting their first in July, a little girl named Roseanne Ginevra after his aunt.
