My name is Lily Grace James and my DH's name is Andrew Lewis James. I am 20 and Andrew is 25.
We got married in 2010 It was a fairytale wedding in the English countryside it was a dream. We honeymooned in Sidney, Australia.
Our first house together is a beautiful traditional English cottage.
#1 Shortly after our wedding we adopt a pet. A beautiful King Charles Spaniel called Pippin. :)
#2 A year later we decide that we want to start trying for a family and sure enough I fall pregnant.
We go for the scan and everything is fine with the pregnancy, when looking at the heartbeat the sonographer discovers a second.... and a third.... we're having TRIPLETS!! They're a cheeky bunch and we don't find out the sex until they make their apperance when we find out we now have three daughters!!
We name them Sophie, Harriet and Laila.
#3 When the girls are one year old their Grandma ( Andrews mum ) gets sick so moves in with us for awhile, sadly a few weeks later she gently passes. This sends Andrew into a deep depression and he can't work for awhile meaning i have to go back to work sooner than planned.
#4 We go to India on holiday and meet a family who's little girl needs things that her family can't provide we offer to look after her as her family are desperate and promise to make sure we visit them with her. She is two years old and Her name is Jahmani Louisa.
#5 We decide to pack up our family of Sophie, Harriet and Laila aged three and Jahmani and three. We move to a lovely hose in Orlando, Florida.
#6 We have a surprise when we discover that iI'm pregnant with twin girls!! We call them Poppy and Rosie.
#7 We decide that for Sophie, Harriet and Lailas 5th birthday we would get them a kitten. We get them a sweet little ginger tabby cat who the decide to call Millie.
#8 When Sophie, Harriet and Laila are six, Jahmani is six and Poppy and Rosie are two. We are surprised to discover that once again I am pregnant! This time with our first little boy. We call him George.
#9 There is a horrific thunder storm one night followed by a tornado and our family home gets destroyed. Luckily, my brother, his wife and there three sons aged 5, 3 and 1 take my family of 8 in for 6 months whilst we get ourselfs back on our feet and find our new home.
#10 My younger cousin Dylan gets married to a beautiful young girl called Lauren, they have a beautiful ceremony on the beach in California it reminds myself and Andrew of our own wedding and we decide to renew our own vows.
#11 Andrews sister comes to stay with us for awhile whist she is at university it has a great impact on our family for the 9 months that she stays as all the children love her!
#12 I am interviewed on Ellen degeneres show for being a family of eight and being left with nothing after our home was destroyed three years in the tornado storm. Sophie, Harriet and Laila are 10, Jahmani is 10, Poppy and Rosie are 6 and George is 4. They all come along and love meeting Ellen. :D
#13 We decide that we want another baby and soon i fall pregnant with a single baby girl who we call Ivy.
#14 We get the children a new pet. A westie called Flossy.
#15 We rellocate to Greenfields, Massachusetts for Andrews new job.
#16 After a year in Greenfields we move back to Orlando, Florida where family is and better schools for the kids who are now Fourteen, Ten, Eight and Three.
#17 My brother and Sister in law have a new baby girl to add to there family. They already have three boys Luke, James and Sam who are Thirteen, Eleven and Nine. They call her Isabelle.
#18 Unexpectedly I fall pregnant! This time with twin boys! Our children, Sophie, Harriet and Laila are Sixteen, Jahmani is Sixteen, Poppy and Rosie are Twelve, George is Ten and Ivy is Five. We call the new arrivals Thomas and Jake.
#19 Andrew meets an old flame and has an affair which has been going on for 3 years now but so much has happened i haven't had time to realise. It was found out horribly when are eldest Sophie came home from School early to find her dad 'cuddled' up with the supposed maid. This has put a huge strain on Andrews relationship with myself and the children.
#20 Andrew and I split and Myself and the children move to New York City.

My name is Jodie Louise Atkins and My DH is Matthew Luke James I call him Matty. I'm 18 and Matty is 26.
We got married in 2013, we had a beautiful dream like wedding at Edingbrough Castle, Scotland. We take a beautiful honeymoon to Hawaii!
Our house is perfect for us we are very happy in it http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...php?st=e1c4608
We're living in Devon, England.
Me and my best friend Faye decide to open a buisness from home together. The buisness is cake making in which people can view them online and we will deliver specially hand made cakes for people for any type of occasion.
I decide to write some books about my cake buisness so I open my own bookstore to sell them in. I call it Frills.
We are so delighted to find out I'm pregnant but sadly with all the stress from the two buisnesses and sadly i miscarriage!
Unexpectdly not long after miscarrying I fall pregnant with twin boys! :)
They're beautiful, we call them Cameron Luke and Dexter Matthew.
We had a major fire, luckily none of us were hurt but we have to move in with my mum. Cameron and Dexter are only one year old and had got into a lovely routine so sadly thats now got messed up and Matty is so stressed out he has to go stay away with his mum for awhile splitting are family up for time. We soon get ourselves sorted mind and move into our new home. http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...php?st=837e202
Matty bumps into an old flame and they have an affair which lasts a horrendous 11 months!! This takes a massive strain on our marriage and Mattys relationship with Cameron and Dexter. It takes such a long time to get our relationship back on track but I am determined for the sake of the boys.
When Cameron and Dexter are Three years old we take them to Flamingo Land Theme Park. They both go on one of the Kiddie rides and they're is a huge fault. Cameron gets trapped underneath the ride and is there for 45 minutes before getting rescued! He is seriusly injured and is taken to hospital more less straight away! He undergoes two operation to try and stop his internal bleeding and we get told to spend the night with him as they don't think he'll make it through! Its the worst news a parent can ever hear. After spending 4 months in hospital Cameron pulls through and is allowed back home. The ride is now closed down permanantly!
My friend Faye who I have the cake buisness with falls pregnant and has beautiful little girl called Lacie!
We pack up our stuff and move to a beautiful house in Plymouth, South West England. http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...php?st=7e9b246
We try to extend our family but sadly i fail to get pregnant.
My younger cousing Ellissia gets married to her dream man!
Once again we keep trying for a baby as the boys are now seven years old and once again we fail.
We move again this time across the border to Lanesbrough, Massachusetts. http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...php?st=de7a222
Now we're settled in we try again for a baby and I fall pregnant with a baby girl!
She's perfect and well worth the wait we call her Amelia Rose. :)
Matty gets a job he's now working in the local hospital as a major trauma surgeon! Cameron and Dexter who are now nine years old really look up to their dad.
We decide to move back England as we're missing our families too much. We move back to Devon where we both come from. http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...php?st=d39b62f
