    DS/DS: Everett Sawyer Eli and Greyson Beckett Reid "Everett and Grey" (year 2)

    Miscarry. I open a bookstore in town, and we call it L'Espoir. It means "hope" in French. (year 4)

    DD: Violet Carolina Eve (year 5)

    DH gets a huge promotion at work and is now in charge of accepting children for sponsorship at the ministry he's worked for for years. His salary nearly doubles and we are able to move into a larger home to accommodate the nine of us. (year 6)

    ADD: Lilibet Catherine Odette "Lily" (year 7. We adopted her from Romania and she's just the sweetest!)

    We TTC but to no avail. Instead, we focus our efforts on planning my baby sister's wedding! She gets married in our home church, with violets everywhere. Violet was her flower girl (how fitting!) and wore a halo of violets around her head. It went off without a hitch and Becca and Thomas are very happy together. (year 8)

    After eight children, Josiah and I wonder if we're done. Eight is a lot of kids, haha. So we focus our efforts on naming Becca's baby! He arrived in November, and with the help of our little army, his name is Lincoln Oliver Thomas. We all call him Cole. (year 9)

    Surprise! After five years of not being pregnant, we find ourselves expecting twin girls. Of course, we are so happy.
    DD/DD: Willa Phoebe True and Evangeline Gemma Ruby "Willa and Evie" (year 10)

    Becca is expecting again, and it's another boy! Of course, we are happy to help when she asks for advice. Little Samuel Edison Rupert arrives in July! We call him Sammy. (year 11)

    We decide to try for one more before we're done. We're blessed with a little girl!

    So, all in all, we are:

    Josiah and Anna, and our children:

    Lily Frances Bellamy (23)
    Arthur Calvin Nobbs (23)
    Married May 11, 2012

    Lily Frances and Arthur met in high school, but had few classes together. They did not speak much until they each joined the same online social network and were reintroduced. They went on a date to the zoo, and shortly after were very much in love. Within the year they were engaged, and a few months later they were married.

    2012: Lily Frances and Arthur spend the first few months of their marriage in total happiness. Soon, Lily Frances wants to share their happiness by extending their family, and the couple agree to adopt a puppy. They discover that someone in their town breeds German Shepherds for the city police. One puppy from a recent litter was not selected for the police dog program and needs a new home. Lily Frances and Arthur adopt Mina, the German Shepherd puppy. She settles quickly into the Nobbs family.

    2013: Since graduating with a History education degree, Arthur has had little luck with finding a job. In March 2013, he is offered a professorship at the local University and immediately accepts the job. This more than doubles the couple's income, and the family decides to look for their first house.

    2014: With their finances and living situation under control, Lily Frances and Arthur decide it is time to have a baby. In no time at all, Lily Frances is pregnant with their first child. The pregnancy is easy, and Lily Frances is able to take time away from her job as a speech language pathologist to insure it goes smoothly. On October 13, 2014 their son Felix Ezra Nobbs is born. He looks like his father, with a head of blonde hair.

    2015: Felix occupies most of Lily Frances and Arthur's attention. Mina becomes a little jealous. She does not like sharing affection with the new baby, so Arthur suggests they get another pet to play with Mina. They take an afternoon to look through the local shelter. Within minutes they decide to adopt a small calico kitten. They name her Adelaide, and she and Mina immediately hit it off.

    2016: By 2016, Lily Frances has returned to work. The family's schedule is kept busy. Lily Frances takes Felix, Mina, and Adelaide to her parents' house every morning while she and Arthur are at work. She quickly discovers that her old, small Tracker is not sufficient enough for this task. She convinces Arthur to help her select a new car. They buy a Subaru Outback.

    2017: Everything is going so well in the Nobbs family. Felix will be three this year, and Lily Frances and Arthur decide it is time to have another kid. They do not want to wait too long between pregnancies so that the children can be close to each other and play together. Lily Frances becomes pregnant with minimum effort. They decide to leave the sex of the baby a secret, so they request that the doctor not share any information with them other than the health of the baby. On August 27, 2017, Lily Frances and Arthur greet two healthy baby girls. They decide to name the twins Hazel Eloise Nobbs and Violet Eliza Nobbs

    2018: Work becomes difficult for Lily Frances after the birth of the twins. Arthur wants her to stay at home with the children, and she is tempted to agree. She is afraid to leave the family on one income, so she decides to rent a store front. It had been a long time dream of hers to open her own pet supply store, and she decides to do just that. The children join her as she works the store.

    2019: Lily Frances and Arthur are happy with their family life they have created. They discuss whether or not to have more children and decide that finances, space, and attention allows for more kids. Plus, the children love having siblings and Felix is old enough now to ask for a brother. The Lily Frances and Arthur try a couple of times with no success. In April, 2019, Lily Frances discovers she is pregnant. With a family history in multiples, they decide to know as much about the pregnancy as soon as possible. Lily Frances is pregnant with triplets! On December 26, 2019 Liam Edward Nobbs, Oscar Ethan Nobbs, and Sebastian Eli Nobbs are born.

    2020: One day in early 2020, Adelaide the cat is nowhere to be found. Lily Frances searches the property, but with over 40 acres, there are several places she could be. She finally finds her in a barn, but she is not alone. She has five little kittens. Lily Frances calls her neighbor, whose male cat is the sire. The neighbor says that she wants two kittens once they're weaned. Lily Frances finds homes for two more through the store, and the family decides to keep the last kitten, a male named Gus.

    2021: In 2021, Arthur's best friend and his best friend's wife die in a hotel fire. Their children were staying with family at the time, and lucky weren't hurt. Arthur is the godfather, so he and Lily Frances prepare a home from the friend's four children. Hugo Thatcher Vartanian (9), Beatrice Clara Vartanian (7), Nilas Everett Vartanian (5), and Liesl Helene Vartanian (3)

    2022: The past year was tragic, unexpected, busy, and demanding. Arthur decides that what everyone needs is a nice, long vacation. He decides not to offer classes over the summer, and the Nobbs family spends May-July in the United Kingdom, spending most of their time in Ireland. This helps relieve some of the pain for the Vartanian children, as well as provides plenty of time for the kids to get to know the family.

    2023: Lily Frances thinks about the past 11 years and realizes that all of their happiness came from the children. She misses having a baby in the family, and asks Arthur about trying one more time. The older children are in a position to help with the younger ones, and none of the children are suffering from lack of attention, so he agrees to try one more pregnancy. Neither Lily Frances nor Arthur were very surprised to have multiples again, this time twin boys. The children are born September 30, 2023 and are named Dexter Elliot Nobbs and Archer Emerson Nobbs

    Wife: Jillian Elizabeth Benson-Danvers
    Husband: Jeremy Malcolm Danvers
    Year of marriage: 2017

    2017: Ten months after Jillian and Jeremy's wedding on April 30th, 2017, their best friends (and maid of honor and best man) Daniella and Antonio have their own wedding. As the maid of honor, Jillian is put in charge of the preparations. She arranges a Valentine's Day theme, as her friends are getting married the weekend of Valentine's Day, with a wedding hall that looks like this: and the reception is decorated like this: Daniella picks the bridesmaids dresses that look like this: and her own wedding dress is this:

    2018: Jeremy wants a pet before he wants a baby, and Jillian agrees with him. Unfortunately, they're still living in a condo and Jillian is allergic to most breeds of dogs. They go to a pet store in the local mall and adopt a three-month-old white female kitten: They name her Emmery.

    2019: Jeremy's grandfather, Edward Danvers, dies at the age of 78 from a heart attack. In his will, he leaves his eldest grandchild, Jeremy, his house in Fort Worth, Texas. Jillian and Jeremy sell their condo in Albany, New York, pack up their bags, along with their cat, and move to Fort Worth. Their new home looks like this: They love their new home, especially Emmery.

    2020: With a roof over their heads and stable jobs, Jillian and Jeremy decide they're ready to start a family. After two months of trying, Jillian announces her pregnancy to Jeremy over dinner, a month before their anniversary. On December 1st, 2020, the excited new parents welcome boy/girl twins Lysander Alaric Danvers and Aurora Linnea Danvers.

    2021: When the twins are three months old, a Jillian's publishers give her some exciting news: a movie producer wants to make one of her books, "The Killing Season," into a movie! Jillian is thrilled and quickly signs the movie rights. Months later, the movie is released into theaters and becomes a huge blockbuster, with Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner casted as the leading roles. Plus, when word gets out that Jillian is the author of the book behind the movie, her books hit higher on the bestseller lists.

    2022: Now two years old, the twins are in morning daycare so Jillian has some quiet time at home to write. Jeremy works from home mostly as well, with his painting. So, they're home alone most days...which tends to lead to things. Jillian finds out she's pregnant when she gets sick with what she thought was a cold she contracted from a field trip with the twins' daycare group. Quentin Wyatt Danvers is born on March 12th, 2022 to parents Jillian and Jeremy, and big brother Lysander and big sister Aurora.

    2023: Jillian's cousin, Karl, who was like a big brother to her, is getting married. With her husband, three-year-old twins, and eleven-month-old son, she files out to Philadelphia to attend the wedding. It is held at a country club that looks like this: The bride, Hannah's dress looks like this: The ceremony is very chic and goes on without a single hitch.

    2024: Grandpa Edward's old house has become too much of a problem to maintain for Jillian and Jeremy. Reluctantly, Jeremy agrees to sell the house to a handy, single second cousin and buy a new house in the suburbs of Forth Worth with Jillian and their three kids. Their new home looks like this: It's not as big as the old house, but the children really like it.

    2025: Aurora complains to her parents she feels outnumbered by her two brothers and Jillian admits she wouldn't mind having another little girl. Jeremy doesn't need much more convincing than that. They get pregnant on their first try and Jillian tells her daughter on the twins' fifth birthday that her baby sister is on the way. Unfortunately, Aurora and Jillian are both a little disappointed when, on September 13th, 2026, that the baby is another boy. But Hudson Finn Danvers manages to steal his big sister's heart by smiling at her and being quieter than Quentin was.

    2026: The Danvers family spends three weeks of July in Greece. While they are there, they stay with a college friend of Jillian and Jeremy and his own young family at the friend's family's vineyard. Lysander and Aurora become pen pals with Trina, their parents' friend's daughter, who is also five years old, when the family returns to Forth Worth.

    2027: Though they already have four children and decided they didn't want anymore--to Aurora's disappointment--Jillian and Jeremy get an unexpected surprise: they're pregnant! And when they go in for the first ultrasound they hear THREE heartbeats! After nearly eight hours of birthing on June 9th, 2028, triplets Linden Blake Danvers, Sadie Clara Danvers, and Charles Ashton Danvers enter the world. Each are exactly five minutes apart.

    2028: Jeremy's younger brother, Philip, and Philip's wife, Ashley, are killed in a car accident back in Amherst, Massachusetts, leaving their three kids without parents. Jeremy immediately goes to pick up the kids and brings them back to Forth Worth. There is one-year-old Madison Renee Danvers, three-year-old Oliver James Danvers, and three-year-old Lucy Marie Danvers in the house.

    2029: The family treat themselves to another vacation a year after the death of Philip and Ashley. They spend a week of spring break in Barcelona, Spain--making extra sure to avoid the beaches.
