3 Years Later (Introductions)
Joe(24) and Lilly(22) have been going strong. They have their three kids, Riley(AN: I'm just going to spell it like this now.), Aidan, and Noah. Riley will be four in a couple weeks, and the twins will be three, two weeks after her. Joe and his brothers work at a recording studio down the street. They have been producing and are thinking of recording a new album of their own. Lilly is a stay at home mom.
Kevin(26) and Ashley(25) are still going strong. They have their two kids, Mackenzie(Kenzie) and Leah. They just turned three. They are also expecting their third child in 4 months.
Nick(22) and Miley(22) are also still going strong. They have their two kids, Liam and Lauren, who are two. Nick and Miley got married a few months after she had the twins.
"Mommy?" I heard my name being called from downstairs. I quickly got out of bed and noticed that Joe was already up. I walked downstairs to find all four of my kids staring at me.
"What are you guys doing?" I ask them and Joe, my oldest child, walks over to me and grabs my hand.
"We made you your Christmas Eve breakfast." He said. He led me over to the kitchen table and I sit down. Riley sat down next to me and smiles. I smile back and kiss the top of her head. I look down and see Noah and Aidan smiling up at me.
"Can we have a kiss too?" Noah asks me and they both look at me with the puppy dog pout.
"Of course you can." I kiss Noah on his head and then Aidan. They both walk to their seats and Joe comes up to me.
"What about me?" He asks me with his puppy dog pout. I lean in and kiss him gently.
"Ewwwww!" We hear the kids yell and look up to find them covering their eyes. We both laugh and eat our breakfast.
After we ate breakfast, we all get ready and are going Christmas shopping. We took the kids to Kevin and Ashley's. When we get to the mall, it is packed. Joe and I decided to split up and get each kid 10 things and each other two things. When we are done, we get everything in the car, drive home and get everything wrapped. After we get the kids, we go home and eat dinner. Riley, Aidan, and Noah, decided they wanted to watch Frosty the Snowman. Joe and I were cuddled up on the couch while the three kids were sprawled out on the floor. Before we were even halfway through the movie, the kids wanted to go to sleep. Every mother's dream.
"Daddy, we have to put Santa's cookies out." Riley reminded us.
"We can do it before you go to bed." He said.
"Can I go to bed now? I want Santa to come." She said. Joe nodded and walked to the kitchen, with the kids right behind him. I made myself comfortable on the couch and all of the kids came and kissed my cheek before Joe took them to their beds. He went upstairs to go get all of the presents. When he was done I was half asleep so he carried me up to our bed.
The Next Day (Joe's POV)
I woke up to a lot of bouncing. I opened my eyes to find Riley, Noah, and Aidan jumping on me and Lilly's bed.
"Mommy. Daddy. Santa came." I looked over at Lilly to find her with a pillow over her face.
"Okay, what did me and mommy say about jumping on the beds?" They all three stopped jumping immediately.
"Thank you. Now, go downstairs and sit on the couch and we will be down in a minute." They all nod and run downstairs to the living room. I pull the pillow off of Lilly's head and find her sleeping peacefully.
"Lilly? It's time to get up." She groans and pulls the blankets over her head. I smile and pull them off of her and kiss her. She doesn't respond at first but after a few seconds she kisses back and pulls me on top of her. She starts to tangle her fingers in my hair but I pull away.
"Lills, we have three kids downstairs waiting to open presents." She frowns and pushes me off of her.
"Fine, but you owe me a big present later tonight." She says as she walks toward the bathroom.
"Ok, as soon as your kids heads hit their pillows, it's you and me right here." I tell her pointing to the bed. She laughs and shuts the bathroom door. I go downstairs to find the kids staring at the presents under the tree.
"Daddy look. I got a really big one under here." Riley tells me pointing to a present that wasn't even hers.
"Ri, that's not yours." She looks at me with her eyes wide.
"What?" She says as she gets up and walks over to me with little hands on her hips.
"Sorry sweetie." I tell her right as Lilly comes walking down the stairs.
"Mommy, daddy says that this big present isn't mine. Tell him he's wrong." Riley says as she walks up to Lilly. Lilly picks her up and takes her over to the big present.
"I'm sorry Ri, but this is Daddy's." She tells her. She squirms out of her arms and she puts her down. Riley walks over to me and pouts.
"Daddy, will you share with me?" I laugh and pick her up.
"We'll see." I tell her. She smiles really big and says, "Okay, thank you."
"Daddy, can we open presents now?" Aidan asks me.
After opening presents for an hour with the kids and I, it was Lilly's turn to open her presents. Riley was too busy playing with her new princess doll, and the boys were too concerned with their new toy trucks to notice. Lilly and I were sitting on the couch and I gave her the first present.
"Here you go." I tell her. She smiles and opens it. When she lifts the box she smiles and looks at me. She takes it out of the box and reveals a blanket with a picture of me and her on our wedding day.
"Joe, I love it." She says as she leans over to give me a quick kiss.
"Good, now here is your other one." I say as I pull a really tiny box out from behind my back.
She opens the box and finds a necklace with three hearts. On each of the hearts, there is the birthstone and name of the kids.
"Thank you Joe, so much. I love it." She says. She leans over and gives me a hug and another quick kiss.
"Your welcome. And thanks for Guitar Hero and my new watch. Maybe I can play it enough and finally beat Kevin." I say.
"Your welcome but don't count on beating him." She says as we both laugh.
"Daddy, when are we going to...ohhhh. Mommy I like your diamonds." Riley says as she walks up to us.
"Thank you very much. Daddy got it for me." She says and Riley looks at me.
"You didn't get me any diamonds. I thought I was your princess?" She says pouting. Lilly walks away laughing and I look at my daughter.
"You are my princess. It's just that, Santa got you all of those new princess dolls, and he didn't bring mommy anything." I tell her as I set her on my lap.
"Was mommy on the naughty list?" She asks me as she crosses her arms across her chest.
"No, it's just because she is a grown up." I tell her laughing.
"Oh. Okay. When are we going to Grandma and Papa's house?"
"As soon as everybody gets dressed." She hops down from my lap and walks over to the boys.
"Noah! Aidan! You have to go get dressed so we can go see Grandma and Papa. NOW!" She yells and I look at her.
"Riley Elizabeth. Be nice." I say as she walks to her room to get dressed with all of her new toys in her hands. She may look like me, but she sure does have Lilly's attitude sometimes.
After everyone got dressed we went over to my parent's house and everybody else was already there. We walked in and were attacked by all of my nieces and nephews and my little brother. All of the kids ran into the living room and sat around the Christmas tree. After everybody opened all of their presents and ate dinner, all of the kids went in Frankie's room to play with their new toys and all of the adults sat in the living room.
"Ashley, when are you due?" Lilly asks.
"Umm... like the second week in April." She says.
"Have you guys thought of any names yet?" Miley asks.
"Yeah, for a boy we like Evan Jason and for a girl we like Isabella Michelle."
"I like how you put both of your movie names in the boy name. Evan is for Sharpay Evans from High School Musical and Jason I'm guessing is for Kevin's role in Camp Rock?" Miley said.
"Yeah. We didn't even notice it at the time. I just liked Evan and Kevin suggested Jason so we just put them together and then we noticed." Ashley said.
"Are you guys gonna have anymore kids?" Kevin asked me and Lilly.
"Uh, we haven't really talked about it." I said looking over at Lilly.
"Oh, what about you guys?" He asked Nick and Miley.
"We haven't really talked about it either." Nick said.
"Well, I think that you should all have as many kids as you can. I want lots of grandkids." Mom said causing all of us to laugh. Riley came in shortly after and climbed on Lilly's lap.
"What's wrong?" She asked her.
"They're being mean to me." She said as she started crying.
"What are they doing?" I asked her.
"They won't play with me. I asked them if they wanted to play a game and they all said no."
"Well, that's okay. We're gonna be leaving soon so you can go home and go to sleep. I know your tired." Lilly tells her as she looks at her.
"No I'm not mommy. I can pla-" She was cut off by a big yawn. We all laughed and then I went to go gather my other two kids.
On the way home it was very quiet. All of the kids fell asleep, including Lilly. When we got home, I carried all of the kids to their beds and went out to get Lilly. She was already awake carrying some of the presents in the house.
"Lilly, I can get that stuff." I told her.
"No, it's okay, I got it." She said as I held the door open for her. When we got everything in the house, she went upstairs to take a shower. I got in as soon as she was done. I walked into our bedroom to find her flipping through the stations on the TV. I lay next to her on our bed and she turns the TV off.
"Joe, do you want more kids?" She asks me.
"Well, yeah. I've always wanted a big family." I tell her. "What about you?"
"Yeah, I just didn't want to say anything because I wasn't sure if you wanted more and I didn't want to freak you out or anything." I pull her closer to me and kiss the top of her head.
"Lills, however many kids we end up with, weather it's 4 or 14, I will be happy."
"Me too. Do you want to make one right now?" She asks me smiling.
"Okay." I say excitedly. I lean in and kiss her and then I start to deepen it as I push her over. I gently get on top of her start kissing down her neck. When we are done.....you know, we are laying in our bed. Lilly has her hand on my bare chest drawing imaginary shapes as I am running my fingers through her hair.
"Merry Christmas Joe." She says.
"Merry Christmas Lilly."
