Wife: Jillian Elizabeth Danvers, age 24
Husband: Jeremy Malcolm Danvers, age 26
Married July 5th, 2017 in a hotel in Buffalo, New York. They move to Albany, New York after a two-week honeymoon in the UK.
2018: Dakota, a close friend of Jillian's since high school, is no longer capable of taking care of her six-year-old daughter, Adelina Isabel Roundtree. Jillian and Jeremy take her in and, a year later, she becomes Adelina Isabel Roundtree-Danvers.
2019: The Danvers move to Tampa, Florida, for new job possibility for Jeremy and Jillian. Their house looks like: http://www.wdwilliamsconstruction.co...anch-Home2.jpg
2020: Jillian and Jeremy start trying for a baby shortly after Adelina turns eight in December. Jillian gets pregnant after two months, but six weeks into the pregnancy, she miscarries. But several months later, she is slightly distracted from her disappointment when she and Adelina have a small part as a mother/daughter neighbor role in a movie being shot in Florida.
2021: Jeremy convinces Jillian they can try again. They do, and three months later, Jillian is pregnant. During their 12 week appointment, they discover they are expecting triplets! Two girls and one boy. On April 1st, 2021, Phoebe Rose Danvers, Celia Juliette Danvers, and Holden Seth Danvers are born.
2022: The first book Jillian published is being made in a movie! She and Jeremy have a scene where they are dancing at a party the main character's father is hosting.
2023: On September 14th, 2023, Jillian and Jeremy have their fourth biological child. It is a single baby boy and his name is Quinton Gabriel Danvers.
2024: Jeremy's sister, Katrina, is getting married. The Danvers family flies up to New York to attend the wedding. Jillian is a bridesmaid and Jeremy is a groomsmen. Adelina (12) is a junior bridesmaid. Phoebe (3) and Celia (3) are flower girls, and Holden (3) is the ring bearer. 1-year-old Quinton falls asleep on his grandmother's lap.
2025: The Danvers decide to try for one more baby. They end up with triplets, all boys. Born on October 3rd, 2025, the babies are named Camden Blake Danvers, Landon Wyatt Danvers, and Declan Reid Danvers.
2026: A hurricane hits Tampa very hard, nearly destroying the Danvers house. The family is forced to relocate. They go to stay with Jeremy's parents in Saratoga Springs, New York. While the kids did like living in Tampa, they quickly grow to love Saratoga Springs and ask their parents if they can stay. With a good, well-paying job opening at a university in a nearby town and closer proximity to publishers, Jillian and Jeremy deeply consider it. Ultimately, they decide to stay.
2027: While walking home from a friend's house, 15-year-old Adelina is hit by a car. She is left in the middle of the road for at least an hour before a passing motorist finds her and calls for an ambulance. Jillian and Jeremy drop everything and head for the hospital as soon as they received the call. Adelina rests in a chemical coma for three days before she wakes up. After a week and a half in the hospital, she is sent to a private hospital, undergoing treatment for another month. When she is able to go home, she has to walk on crutches with one arm in a sling. The family works together to help her out, all of them grateful that she lived through it.
2028: The driver that hit Adelina is finally caught. He was driving drunk and had no idea that he had hit anyone. This inspires Jillian, Jeremy, and Adelina to go on an anti-drunk driving campaign. They start a charity foundation to help victims and victims' families of alcohol and drug related crimes.
2029: Living with Jeremy's parents has been nice, but it's becoming cramped. And when a fire nearly destroys the kitchen (caused by Adelina, trying to help), the Danvers decide it's time to move. They move to a house a few blocks away, in another suburb in Saratoga Springs. Their new house looks like this: http://activerain.com/image_store/up...1668741233.jpg
2030: At 37, with an 18-year-old high school senior, three 9-year-old third graders, one 7-year-old first grader, and three 5-year-old preschoolers, the last thing Jillian expected was another baby. But a month after she and Jeremy spend a Valentine's Day weekend away, she discovers that she's pregnant. Her husband and Adelina watch over her like hawks. Born on August 4th, 2030, the baby girl is small but healthy. Her name is Ruby Evangeline Danvers.
2031: Jillian's "halfway to mid-life crisis" moment occurs when she dyes her brown hair a medium red color. Her family is uncertain of how to react.
2032: Jillian dyes her hair again. This time, it's a dark brown color, close to her natural one.
2033: Katrina convinces Jillian and Adelina to help her open a daycare center in Saratoga Springs. It's called the We Love Kids Daycare Center.
2034: For his birthday, Quinton asks if he can have a dog or a cat. This sparks the interest of the other children as well, who have never had any pets. The day before Quinton's eleventh birthday, Jillian and Jeremy bring home a dog and a cat. The dog is a male German Shepard the kids name Flynn and the cat is a female Birman cat they name Jasmine.
2035: Joey Stillwell and his wife Laura are killed in a car accident, leaving behind their two young daughters, Sadie Madeline Stillwell (5) and Lily Roxanne Stillwell (2). With no other family that can take them in, Jillian and Jeremy, like with Adelina years before, take the Stillwell girls in and eventually adopt them.
2036: Jillian and Jeremy's 24-year-old daughter, Adelina, is getting married to her closet friend since middle school, and college boyfriend, Logan Oliver Johnson. Adelina and Logan are married on December 12th, 2036, in a small church in Saratoga Springs. 15-year-old Phoebe and Celia are bridesmaids. 15-year-old Holden, 13-year-old Quinton, and 11-year-old Camden, Landon, and Declan are groomsmen. Ruby (6), Sadie (6), and Lily (3) are flower girls. Adelina's dress looks like this: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aVp25ISZyN...sses-09123.jpg The ceremony goes on beautifully without a hitch and a reception is held at Logan's grandparent's house.
2037: Jillian's mother has become very ill. Jillian brings her mother to Saratoga Springs to take care of her. At first, Jeremy has no problem with this, but Jillian's mother, Dorothy, was never particularly fond of him, and her being there takes Jillian's attention away from their younger children. This goes on for several months, with plenty of fights between the couple. It isn't until seven-year-old Ruby has a severe asthma attack in school does Jillian realize her kids still need her. She finally puts her mother in a nursing home where she will get professional help 24/7.
2038: There are still problems left over from Dorothy's departure. The fights get to a point where Jeremy moves out to stay in a condo. Adelina convinces her parents to attend marriage counseling. This goes on for six months before the Danvers get back together in time for Adelina to announce she's pregnant at the family's annual Christmas.

Me: Lydia Phoebe Bess
DH: Colin Michael Bess
Year married: 2015, I am 25 and Colin is 29.
We marry and live in Philadelphia in a three-bedroom brick home. Our honeymoon is in Turks and Cacaos.
Year 1: My younger cousin, Wesley Ryland Jacobs, gets married to his girlfriend of four years, Ava Lee Rollins. Colin and I fly to Las Vegas for their destination wedding.
Year 2: Shortly after our first wedding anniversary, one of Colin's students at university, Jaime Grace Whistler, confides in him that she's pregnant with twins. After some discussion we decide to adopt the babies and are approved. With Jaime's help we name them August Whistler Bess and Mabel Grace Bess. We have an open adoption and Jaime stays a big part of our lives.
Year 3: With all the excitement of bringing Gus and Mae home, we forget to celebrate our second anniversary! Leaving the twins with Colin's parents for a few days we take a weekend trip to New York. A few weeks later, we find out I'm pregnant... with identical twin boys! Two sets of twins in under two years is hectic, but we are blessed to bring home Walter Jack Bess and Milo James Bess eight months later.
Year 4: Gus and Mae are almost two and Walt and Milo are 7 months old when we get a call from Colin's younger sister, Caitlyn, who is 19. She'd been living in an apartment with her boyfriend, but left him when she caught him cheating. She doesn't want to go home, so we offer her a place to stay. Cate is a great houseguest - she pays rent and helps with the kids as collateral. She stays with us for the rest of the year until she gets accepted to college on scholarship.
Year 5: With Cate in the house, Colin and I didn't get much alone time, but once she moves out everything goes back to normal. It isn't long before we're expecting again. Yet again... it's twins. We can't believe the odds, and neither can the doctors, but this time we have a set of identical twin girls which balances out all the testosterone in the house. Penelope Cate Bess and Clementine Anne Bess come home healthy after two weeks in the NICU.
Year 6: My younger cousin Wes and his wife Ava welcome their first child this year after five years of marriage. They have a beautiful baby girl named Skylar Faith Jacobs, and name Colin and I as godparents.
Year 7: Colin's job as a professor takes us to Boston, Massachusetts when he gets a tenured position as a professor at Harvard. We buy a beautiful six bedroom home in the suburbs outside of Boston.
Year 8: After Polly and Clea were born, Colin and I decided we were scared to roll the dice on having twins again, so we applied for international adoption. This year, we are finally approved to adopt a 3 year old girl from Ethiopia. Ayodele Dembe Bess, called Aya, arrives home when Polly and Clea are two, Walt and Milo are 4, and Gus and Mae are 5.
Year 9: My younger brother David Patrick Jacobs is hit by a drunk driver and passes away a few days later. We are able to prove malpractice on the doctor that was treating him and receive a $2.5 million dollar settlement. He wasn't married and had no children, but we take in his dog, a corgi named Roscoe.
Year 10: Eight months after David passes away, we receive a phone call from the woman he'd been dating at the time, Laura Beth Harmon. She has just given birth to twins, and she claims David is the father. After a paternity test proves the twins are David's, she asks us if we would adopt them as she is unable to support them. We say yes. Archer David Bess and Harriet Patricia Bess come to stay with us a few weeks later.
Year 11: At the suggestion of my seven year old daughter Mae, I get my nose pierced.
Year 12: Late one night, we get a call from a hospital in Santa Monica. Colin's mother, who has Alzheimers, is no longer able to take care of her home on her own and her health is deteriorating. After some discussion, we decide the best thing to do is to move to California to be close to her while she is in a nursing home. It takes some convincing, but we buy her six bedroom estate and use some of the money from the lawsuit to renovate it and add three extra bedrooms. The whole family visits her a few times a week at the care facility and her health improves slightly.
Year 13: Archie and Hattie are turning 3 this year, Polly and Clea are five, Aya is six, Walt and Milo are seven, and Gus and Mae are eight. As crazy as it is with nine kids running around, I can't help but miss having a little baby in the house. Colin agrees. By this time we're 38 and 42, so we turn to fertility treatments. They work... a little too well. Triplets Florence Avis Bess, Eugenia Dawn Bess, and Clarence Bram Bess are born six weeks early but stable. They come home after three weeks in the NICU.
Year 14: Early this year, when the triplets are only five months old, Colin's mother passes away. Almost at the same time, I'm offered a higher paying job in Fort Worth, Texas. We sell the house and make a killing, enough to buy a ranch just outside Fort Worth. The ranch has old servants' quarters attached to the house, which we convert into extra bedrooms for the kids. They still have to share, but not three to a room like in our old house.
Year 15: After moving in, we become unexpectedly pregnant with a baby boy! This was a surprise to everyone as I turn 40 this year, but little Dexter Colin Bess is born happy and healthy. At this time the triplets are 2, Archie and Hattie are 5, Polly and Clea are 7, Aya is 8, Walt and Milo are 9, and Gus and Mae are 10.
Year 16: My best friend, Rachel Marie Franck, passes away this year from breast cancer. She was a single parent to a three year old boy named Wilder Austin Franck. In her will, she lists Colin and I as the custodian of her son as she had no surviving family. Wilder Austin Franck-Bess becomes a part of the family quickly even though the adjustment of losing Rachel is hard. He and Clarence become the fastest of friends.
Year 17: During the hot summer this year, Fort Worth becomes the site of devastating wildfires, one of which destroys our home. Insurance covers the cost of everything, however while we look for a new house we're forced to stay with relatives. We move in with my younger cousin Wesley, his wife Ava, and their 16 year old daughter Skylar for four months, as they own and live in an apartment building with two adjacent, empty apartments. Eventually we buy another home in Fort Worth, using the insurance money to purchase a huge twelve bedroom estate outside the city.
Year 18: I'm invited to the Ellen show as a guest! After the fire and the purchase of our new home, which was once owned by Robert Downey Jr., she got wind of Colin and I and our large blended family and was fascinated. She invites us all to the set to be interviewed, and through the show I am offered a book contract with Simon and Schuster. Colin and I begin writing immediately.
Year 19: This year, we get a frantic call from Wes who is furious that his eighteen year old daughter and my goddaughter, Skylar, is pregnant. He asks me to talk to her. She's ashamed that this happened the way it did but after discussing her options, decides to keep the baby. Her boyfriend Joshua Matthew Dawson, who is only eighteen himself, makes the right decision and asks her to marry him. They have a baby boy named Lukas Wesley Dawson "Luke", who is carried down the aisle by his mother at their wedding two months later. Although it's unorthodox, Skylar and Josh ask us to be Luke's godparents as well as Skylar's. We agree.
Year 20: After meeting baby Luke, Colin confides to me that he'd love to have one more baby before we put our child-rearing years behind us for good. So, in our 20th year of marriage, we welcome another set of twin girls. Stella Vivian Bess and Leona Verity Bess are born on Colin's 49th birthday.
Lydia and Colin:
August, Mabel, Walter, Milo, Penelope, Clementine, Ayodele, Archer, Harriet, Florence, Eugenia, Clarence, Wilder, Stella, and Leona.the ever-changing favorites:
