Round Six: Belle Dreamer Gets 'Fancey'

Oh hello, everyone. Welcome home! Quite a bit has changed since I left the university. I'm working as a supporting player at one of our local theaters. Acting is a passion of mine, however my true passion is family. I'd love to have three children graduate from my alma-mater, Academie LeTour. Luckily, I found Cara Fancey in college and she is very supportive of my dreams. Her goal is to become the Captain Hero of Pleasantview. It'll be tough, but I know that she can accomplish it. We're not just serious, we have our crazy moments, too. We don't have a lot of money for fancy electronics but one thing we love to do is dance!
   We're very happy. We recently even became joined! It was very private, as I'm not sure many in Pleasantview are accepting of this lifestyle. But when you find some-one just like yourself, you don't let society tell you what to do!
 Cara and I decided that there's no time like the present to start a family! So we adopted a little baby girl, Bethany. Mom came over to see her and spend a few days with us. They're very attached to each other.
And actually, Cara and I discussed it, and decided that mom should move in with us. Well, not 'in' with us, more like 'on the lot' with us. Hah, let me explain. Since Dusty went off to college, mom's all alone...and I hate for her to be alone on the other side of town. She lived across the road from Darren, but he's got his own stuff going on, and he's not really her child, so I felt like it was my job to take care of mom. We still let her keep her independence though. We used the sale money from mom's place to build a small little cottage next to the main house. She gets her own garden and pets and everything.

We think it's a great solution, and mom was so excited that she gets to be with Bethany all the time. The cottage is only one bedroom, one bath. Very small and perfect for mom. She doesn't need that much, and she's always welcome in our house. It'll be great to have an extra helper around once Cara gets more involved on the police force and we adopt our second child. That's really all that I have for you today, I'm sure once Bethany starts toddl-ing around we'll have some great stories for you. Have a good week everyone:)

Round Six: Keeping the Magic Alive

It's a short one today here at the Burb house! I'll let John do the narrating this time. He's been itching to get on-camara.

Hey folks! You guys were just over at Lucy's, right? Isn't that baby adorable. My little Land-y-poo, he's so perfect! Now Lucy told me that his pop done skipped out on him already! Not sure how that's possible, since they live right down the street from one another in Downtown Pleasantview. If this guy doesn't man up and make a good life for my grandson, we'll have some words for sure! I loved that baby before Lucy even had the little tyke. She came over after work a few times a week and we had Papaw-baby-time!

After Landon was born, we had birthdays over here too. My own babies, Johnny and Lillian grew up into teens! Can you believe it?! I'm getting so old... well, I guess the white hair was a bit of a giveaway with that. Here are their birthday pictures:

They're pretty good friends, minimal bickering for know-it-all teenagers! They even help each other with their homework!  *beams with pride*
I just hope it stays this way. Johnny is way more into his appearance than his schoolwork. But, he wants to be a journalist, and Lillian wants to be a gamer. We'll see what they decide about college. I'm strongly pro-university since I didn't get the chance to go! And Lucy didn't either, and... I love both Lucy and Landon, but I'd rather my other two children actually experience life before they get tied down with a family. That's just my two cents.

In other news, Jen and I are still hard at work with our pets! I'm only 16 away from raising twenty kittens! Once the kids move to college we'll have even more room for them to breed! Jen is working on getting them to the top of their career. We just recently had Pook do it! It was so exciting. But since Pook was an adult cat, and I can't breed him with his parents, it was time for him to go. Jen wasn't too happy about that. Pook was one of her favorites.
But we needed the room for more kitties. She's only two away from her goal of getting six pets to the top of their career. Wish us luck!! But don't worry... we're not only focused on the cats...

That's right! We still find time to keep the heat alive;) *laughs*. Well alright you guys, I've got to go. We recently had a kitten born and she's not house broken yet. I'll see ya next time!

Round Six: Lucy's Surprise

Oh, hi guys, Lucy Burb here! Quite a bit has happened since you guys stopped by and spied on me and Don last time! I won't lie... Don and I get along very well. However... I also enjoy spending time with Skip Broke. Very cute;) What can I say... I just can't make up my mind!! *giggles*
Even after what's happened, I still haven't made up my mind. I mean, it's not like I want to MARRY Don or anything. *shudders* I'm so young! I've got my whole life ahead of me, guys! But, I did have to break the news to Skip... he was kind of upset with me...
Yep, I'm was pregnant! I had been feeling a little sickly, but I thought it was just the flu...

I still had to work though, ugh! At least Don was there to support me after work.
 Well... supportive after a small meltdown...

But he'll be okay after he sees his beautiful son! I went into labor late one night. Don wasn't around... some emergency with Nina and the twins. But look at my beautiful baby!
I named him Landon... Don mentioned it in passing once. We hadn't really talked about a name, but it's not that important is it? I mean, we both don't have to love it. That's what nicknames are for! *giggles*
Don hasn't been around to see him yet... I hope that he comes for Landon's birthday party. You guys should come too! I'll send you an e-vite!! eeek! I'm so excited. Even though they smell sometimes, babies are just sooo cute, and my baby is the cutest! With parents like his, how could he not be!! Ooops! Baby Landon just spit up a little. I need to clean him up... I'll see you guys later. Don't forget about mee! ;)
