My Famalia-Ch 1
David Rossi smiles as he puts his cell back into his pocket, he was working on a surprise anniversary party for his wife Erin, they had been married for 10 years now and each day brought more joy then the day before. After the replicator case and her discovered faking of her death Erin and Dave grew closer and closer and soon married.
He was pulled back to reality when his friend and now unit chief Aaron Hotchner stepped into the room and said, "how are the plans going"?, Dave said, "they're going great, I just got a call letting me know that everything is going according to plan". Hotch smiled and said, "have you heard anything from Morgan and Garcia"?, Dave nodded his head and said, "they are visiting his mom in Chicago but they are coming back tonight".
Hotch said, "good, good, I talked to Spencer and JJ and they'll be there, they are out of town right now because Henry is graduating from college with another degree, he's a chip off the old block". Dave said, "he's a little genius just like his daddy, who would have thought that at the age of 17 he'd already be a college graduate with several degrees under his belt".
Dave said, "how's Em"?, Hotch said, "she's doing good, she's taken a little time off because of our youngest", Dave said, "how is Toby doing"?, Hotch said, "he's great, growing like a weed" causing them both to laugh. Hotch looked at his watch and said, "well I'd love to stay and talk longer but I've got a meeting".
Dave said, "have a good day Aaron and I guess I'll see you guys tomorrow"?, he said, "see you tomorrow", before turning around and heading out of the room. As he sat there looking around his office at all of the pictures he couldn't help but smile, one picture was of him and Erin at their wedding 10 years ago.
She was so beautiful in her dress as they were surrounded by their family, another picture was of the Reid family, JJ was radiant that day and he found out that she was pregnant with her 3rd child in that picture. He grinned as he looked at the picture of JJ, Reid and their 3 kids, Henry then age 6, Michael 3 and little daughter in JJ's arms, Sophie, they were quite the little family.
Another picture was of Hotch, Emily, Jack then 9, Zach 7 and Toby 5, they were all the spitting image of their father but had their moms attitude and outlook on life. He couldn't help but sigh happily as he looked at a picture of the Morgan clan, it was so long that he didn't think that Derek and Penelope or Morcia as he called them would ever get together but a twist of fate and a freak snowstorm finally put the two of them together.
He remembered their wedding so vividly, almost like it happened yesterday, then a year later she gave birth to their first child, a son, Hank Spencer Morgan and he was a spitfire with his mommas smile and his daddys spirit. It wasn't long before Derek and Penelope announced that they were expecting another baby but that baby turned into twins and around Christmas that year Penelope had given birth to identical twin daughters Teri and Jeri and both were mini Penelopes.
As his eyes hit the big picture in the middle he grinned, the picture contained everybody, him, the Hotchners, the Reids and the Morgans, he had quite the extended family and he loved them all with his whole heart. He sighed as he looked down at his watch and said, "well I guess I better get home and spend some quality time with Erin because once everybody starts showing up we won't get any time alone".
He put his jacket on and headed out the door and down the stairs, he knew that this anniversary party was going to be like no other and he couldn't wait to see everybody again, they were now and would always be his famalia.
