You have total creative freedom!Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

Scarlett Elena Moore meets Julian Theo Gray in 20 in 2019. They meet one day on Gonzaga University's campus at a scuba diving class. They are partners and become close in the following months. They eventually start dating.
On Christmas Eve 2022, Julian proposes to Scarlett. He takes her on a walk in the snowy park, and kneels down while snowflakes fall from the sky. Of course she says yes! The ring is a vintage emerald-cut, with a gold band.
Scarlett immediately starts planning her dream wedding. Her wedding dress is lace with a sweetheart neckline. On June 30, 2024, the couple gets married in a garden surrounded by their closest friends and family members. They honeymoon on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Julian gets a job as an architect, and Scarlett has a small interior design business.
3 months after her wedding, Scarlett feels nauseous and sick. She puts it off thinking it is from the stress of moving in with Julian, but after another week of feeling sick, she goes to the doctor. Scarlett gets a shock when she finds out she is pregnant!
On February 4, 2025, Rose Amelia Gray is born. She has brown hair and brown eyes like her mom.
Three years later, Rose became the perfect little girl. She started ballet, and did well in her first day at pre-school. Scarlett is proud of her little girl, but realizes she is two weeks late. Worried, she takes a pregnancy test, and to her surprise, she is pregnant!
On Julian & Scarlett's anniversery, their first little boy is born. Maxwell Jude looks just like his daddy with light brown hair and brown eyes.
Two years later, Scarlett is busy at home with Max, who loves getting into trouble. Meanwhile, Rose is begging for a puppy. Scarlett and Julian eventually give in, and a little dachshund named Magnolia(or as Max says "Manola") is added to the growing family.
Two more years later, Scarlett and Julian have decided to try for a baby. They are once again blessed, this time with twins! Rose couldn't be happier to have two real babies to play with.
On October 1, 2034, they Gray family is introduced to their newest members-Archer Milo and Coralie Jane. Both surprisingly have blonde hair from Scarlett's dad, and green eyes from Julian's mom.
Five years later, Scarlett and Julian have given in to so many pets, they don't remember them all. Rose got a pet bunny who she named Lulu, the family got another dauchshund named named Poppy, Archer and Cora went through too many beta fish to count(consisting of Oscar, Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster and Grover), and Max has a talking parrot named Carrot.

Hi! My name is Jessica Mary (née Klein). My mom, Wendy Amelia Klein (her maiden name was Rosenbloom), is all American, and was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. My father, James Robert Klein, is from Providence, RI. They found a house together and moved to Boone, NC. That's where I came along! I am the firstborn of 3. My other siblings are named Rachel Ann and Matthew John.
I met my husband, Peter Dominic Glassberg, when I was 17, fresh out of high school. He was a neurosurgeon. His parents were both born and raised here. We dated until I was 19, and then one day, he took me on the beach and proposed to me. This was my wedding dress: http://cdn.stylisheve.com/wp-content...dresses_03.jpg and this is where we had the ceremony: http://rosemarysgardenhouston.com/im..._chapel_01.jpg . It wasn't a big wedding. We just had family and a few close friends. We still had an awesome time! We honeymooned to Tahiti for a week.
Six months after we got married, I started feeling queasy. I went to the doctor thinking it was a stomach virus. After some tests, they found out I was pregnant! We were so happy, and we found out that we were having a boy!! I chose his first name and Peter chose his middle name. He came perfect at 37 weeks, and we named him Xander Nathaniel.
When Xander was five months old, something tragic happened: Peter's brother, Nathan Charles, passed away. The whole family was devastated. His wife, Ethel Janette, started drinking and abusing her daughter after his death. After months of custody battles, Peter and I became the legal guardian of their sweet 2 year old daughter, Sophia Charity. She was very quiet and sweet, and loved Xander like if she was a little mommy to him.
Two years passed. Sophia was 4, Xander was 2. I started feeling queasy...again. So I took a test and, BAM! I found out I was pregnant! Everyone was elated. It was a girl this time! We named her Alivia Wren. She was beautiful!!
When Alivia was 2, Sophia was 6, and Xander was 4, Peter and I decided to extend our family...in a slightly different way. We decided to adopt a dog! We chose a male golden retriever named Buster. He was a great family pet.
After we got Buster, Peter and I both agreed that we needed to move to a bigger house. Here is the house we bought: http://www.atlantarealestateforum.co...r-calloway.jpg . All of the kids loved it because they each got their own rooms! Here is Sophia's room: http://www.home-designing.com/wp-con...irls-room.jpeg . Here is Xander’s room: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/73...dbe1288571.jpg . Here is Alivia’s Room: http://decoration0.com/wp-content/up...ration3371.jpg . And there was still plenty more space to grow a family!
After we got settled in, I got all the signs of pregnancy again. Not to my surprise, I was expecting again! To my surprise, I had twins! We ended up having twin boys! Everyone was overjoyed that there were not one, but two new additions! We decided to name them Carter James and Christopher Ronan.
A year passes after the twins were born. Peter and I decide we are well overdue for a family vacation. The whole family goes on a trip to France for 2 weeks! While in France, Alivia became friends with a little girl who was also 3, and soon the two were inseparable. I found out the little girl was being raised by her ailing grandfather. Peter and I decided to adopt her! Her name is Charlotte Adele.
After we adopted Charlotte, Peter said he felt our family was complete and he was getting the snip. I was crushed, but felt blessed that we already had 6 kids and a dog.
Life went on for the next three years. Around that time, I started gaining a lot of weight. I suddenly was hungry all the time and had severe morning sickness. I knew I couldn't be pregnant. Just for kicks, I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. Peter revealed that he chickened out of the procedure. Nine months later, we welcomed a healthy baby boy! His name was Jacob Levi. The kids were shocked that there was another baby, but overjoyed at the same time!
When Jacob was only 5 months old, a tragedy ripped apart our lives -- Peter had been killed in a boating accident. I was crushed and depressed. All of my kids were feeling it. I had to stay strong for them, but I was honestly dying on the inside. Everything had changed. The kids had to leave their fancy private school to go to a public school. I had to go back to work. With no college degree, there was barely anything I could do. So I took a job at Walmart bagging groceries. We also had to downsize out house to this:
A year after the tragedy, I met a very nice man named Robert Charles Elias. He was a divorcee who used to be married to a drug-addicted lady. Three years ago, he filed for divorce and took custody of his children. He has two kids: Mason Jack (11) and Rebecca Lauren (8). He is a firefighter chief and seems like a very nice guy. Six weeks later, we were officially dating.
We dated for four years. One day, he took me out to eat at a very fancy restaurant and proposed to me! I couldn't say no! I was overwhelmed with joy. We married on the beach: http://barefootweddings.files.wordpr...arbor-blue.jpg and it was a huge affair. My daughters all pitched in designing my wedding dress: http://www.8weddingdresses.com/image...resses_048.jpg . It was a very wonderful occasion. We took the kids on our honeymoon with us on a Mediterranean cruise!
After we came back from the honeymoon, I found out I was pregnant! Definitely a surprise, considering the amount of time it took for me to conceive my other natural children. It was a girl! We named her Jordyn Marina.
After I married Rob, I was able to stay home with the kids again. Shortly after Jordyn was born, we bought a huge house together. This is the house: http://images.businessweek.com/ss/10...23-jackson.jpg .
Rob and I tried and tried for two years to conceive again, but it just wouldn't happen. We turned to fertility treatments, and were blessed with triplets! Two girls and a boy. We named them Liam Henry, Lola Teagan, and Lily Morag.
The triplets thrived! It was amazing to see how fast they develop and communicate with each other in special ways.
Only two years later, we had another unexpected surprise. I found out Sophia's boyfriend, Gregory Mark Schmidt, had proposed to her. And she said yes. Sophia was only 17, and just out of high school, but Rob and I let her go along with it, being that Gregory was a nurse supervisor making good money, and he would be able to support her.
Sophia's wedding was amazing. It was bittersweet seeing the little girl who was once a shy two year old from an abusive house and became my first daughter turning into this beautiful young woman who was about to take the biggest step in her life. This was her dress: http://searchwallpaper.org/wp-conten...-designers.jpg and this was where she got married: http://wedding-pictures-04.onewed.co...st-1__full.jpg .
Two years after Sophia's wedding, we both got pregnant at the same time! We both had girls. She named her baby girl Adalie Grace and I named mine Josie Danielle.
After Josie was born, I knew our family was complete. I was very happy with my life.~Emily
