I give birth to twin girls on the one year anniversary of our move to DC. Ophelia Jane and Claudia Elinor are born July 6th and are named after Ben's grandmother and my mother, respectively. Although born a month early, they are both able to come home after a week. They both have my curly brown hair and their father's green eyes.
Four years later, I return home from an out of country business trip, feeling ill. Figuring I'd just eaten something unfamiliar that my stomach didn't agree with, I ignore it for awhile. When I'm still feeling sick a week later, Ben insists I go to the doctor. I'm six weeks pregnant! On April 3rd (the day before Ben's birthday) Ezra Oliver is born, healthy and right on time. He is named after Ben's grandfather. Although his hair is curly like his sisters, and he has matching green eyes, his hair is the same flaming red as his father's.
Ben and I decide three is a perfect number: Ophelia (5), Claudia (5), and Ezra (nb)http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9812414

Part 1- My name is Pierce Alexandra Chancellor. I was born on April 27, 1989 in Charlottesville, Virginia to Jessica Elaine Chancellor (née Holling) & Wesley Matthew Chancellor. My father died at war a week after I was born, so I never met him, but my older brother and my mother always tell stories about him and show me pictures. After my father died, my mother became a widow and raised us two children, me and my brother Kaidan (Ky-den) Wesley Chancellor who is three years older than me. We moved to this house when I was eight and Kaidan was eleven:http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-8640...ailbox-on.html. I graduated high school in 2007 and then went on to college at King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, my father's and my brother's alma mater. I majored in criminal justice because of my interest in it ever since I watched Veronica Mars with my mom on Netflix and researched it after my grandfather told me tons of stories about his time in the FBI. I plan to go to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, only two hours away from home, to train to become an FBI agent.
Part 2- It took me roughly four and a half years to graduate at King's College because I attended extra classes after the rest of my class graduated. I moved back home for a few months before I was twenty-three, old enough to train at the FBI Academy. During the twenty-week training I noticed a familiar face, Cassidy Owen Lockwood, a man who was a student at my high school a year above me. We became great friends and shared an apartment after graduating at the academy while we were assigned to the FBI field office in Richmond, VA. One night, Cassidy met up with one of his buddies from college and brought me along to meet Dane Johnathan Hols. Dane was studying at the University of Richmond's School of Law after majoring in pre-law at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. That night Dane asked me for my number and the weekend after we went on our first date. We went to a local shooting range because he knew I was working for the FBI and because his father used to bring him shooting all the time. We had lunch, too. Cassidy was okay with us dating, and I knew because I ran it by him only eight million times. Dane and I ended up getting serious and during our dating period I learned that he was born on December 9, 1989 in Syracuse, NY, also the city in which he grew up. Unlike me, he had and has both his parents Lilian Maryellen Hols (née Marlins) and Emmett Kyle Hols, and also unlike me, he is an only child. He grew up in this house: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-6311...-for-sale.html. Dane attended law school for four years before we moved in together in Richmond. Cassidy's girlfriend Isla was secretly ecstatic that we were moving in together, for she didn't listen to Cassidy when he said that I had a boyfriend and that mine and Cassidy's relationship was strictly platonic. Now that I think about it, it is weird that we lived together for three years and were so normal with each other.
Part 3- Dane and I dated for three years during the time he was at law school and after that lived together in an apartment for five months. At that time, we were thirty. Dane recreated our first date when we went to the shooting range, but instead he brought me to a fancier restaurant to propose! I knew my answer immediately. My twenties were over and I loved Dane; I said yes. I didn't want a big extravaganza, and neither did Dane, so we planned a small wedding in Richmond, the place that became our home, at the house my mother was now living in after she moved. A year later, the wedding was simple and in the back yard, filled with our family and friends. Dane's best man was Cassidy, and my maid of honor was my sister-in-law Alice--Kaidan's wife. We had our closest cousins as our bridesmaids and groomsmen. Kaidan's little girl, Dianna, was the flower girl, and Dane's cousin's boy Willie was the ring bearer. The dress, ring, wedding, and hoopla didn't matter to me; all that mattered was Dane, and me becoming Pierce Alexandra Hols. For our honeymoon, we went to London, England, were Dane knew I had wanted to go for forever. After a few months of house-hunting, we found a nice house in Richmond to that was perfect: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-7038...can-house.htmlWe were both in the city we loved and near our jobs--mine at the FBI field office and his at his cousin's law firm. Dane and I only waited four months before we wanted to start to have children.
Part 4- Our first child was a boy, Dane Johnathan Hols Jr., after his amazing father. His hair is dirty, dark blond, just like his father, but he has my brown eyes. Three years later, our girl Emerson Kate Hols was born, with sandy blond hair and blue eyes like her father. This left me as the only brunette in the family. The kids remind me of Kaidan and I because we were three years apart too. Dane was super-athletic at a young age, bouncing around from sport to sport, but eventually zeroing in on hockey. All he could talk about was his favorite teams and players and the standings of the season. Hockey always makes me nervous because of the roughhousing, but I knew that was just my motherly instinct. Emerson is called Em by most of her close friends, which she only has a few because she is so independent. And because books are definitely her number one friend. She continuously talks about the books she's reading and gee, can she talk! But I can't blame her because that's how I was when I was younger. It's crazy to think how far I've come with Dane.

Names are all your choice. When deciding birth orders, roll the dice for how many months/years the children are apart from each other in age. Feel free to add pictures, descriptions, etc.
First roll the dice...
If you rolled an EVEN number, roll it again here:
2. You have four daughters.
What are your kids' names, in birth order?
1. Stella Evangeline
12 months later..
2. Anastasia "Ana" Noelle
3 years later..
3. Lucy Eleanor
5 years later...
4. Aurora "Rory" Cecelia
