Where we left off was with Sunny having her birthday, and what's a birthday without a few toys?! Since the family has more money now we were able to get her a toybox, a giant stuffed unicorn and...
Ta Da! A set of monkey bars!
Immediately Sunny went out and started playing on her new set of monkey bars, she was so excited she completley bypassed her unicorn and toybox! Soon James joined her because he heard the news they actually had something to play on outside!
Sunny turned out to be a very big daddy's girl and would always be wanting to talk to her dad. Even when he was busy tying to paint pieces for his job.
Violet was starting to feel like maybe she should change how she dressed, considering that both her babies were children now. So she went down to the nearest clothing store and tried to find some more age appropriate clothes, but after almost 2 hours of trying on clothes she came to the conclusion she wanted to still look young but still wanted to be a little more covered up.
While Violet was away Camilo had to watch the kids but....he didn't really watch them he was to enraptured with what he had just created!
Camilo: Sunny, hunny! Look what Daddy made!
Sunny: What is it?
Camilo: It's a masterpiece sweetheart!
Sunny: Just looks like old people to me...gotta go pee now! Bye daddy!
Camilo: Ugh...my art is never appreciated.
Oddly, Violet had been spending more time by herself and less time with her family. Which was weird for her considering she was family-oriented.
Hey Violet, are you doing okay?
Violet: Yea I guess so..I'm just trying to keep my body in shape and get a lot more promotions so I can leave my family in a comfortable position.
You know it doesn't matter how much money you can make, you're only the founder there's no reason for you to wear yourself out trying to achieve a certain amount of money.
Violet: I know...but I would still feel bad if I didn't try my hardest.
Well you know family is more important than promotions. It's more important to be there and watch your kids grow up than for them to wonder where there mother has been their whole life.
Violet: I suppose your right...maybe I'll take some vacation days off just to try and catch up with everyone.
During those days of off time Violet decided to throw a dinner party and invited everyone she knew, which wasn't a lot. James best friend turned into a teenager so they couldn't play together anymore and it made him a little upset. But when he figured out that it was a dinner party he instantly became happy because he loved how his mother cooked.
Sunny, just like her brother, was always good about doing chores. She helped her mother clean up after the dinner party without even being asked!
As a reward for her raising grades and her keeping up with the chores, Camilo painted her a picture to hang in her room. He called it "The Love Monster".
Here lately Sunny had been...well not so sunny. She kept coming home from school angry and going, and punching her unicorn!
Violet noticed this and decided that maybe she needed to hang out with a girl her own age, so she decided to make Sunny's favorite meal, Gumbo, and head over to Liberty's. Liberty had told her a while ago that she had, had a baby but she couldn't make the little ones birthday party.
After they had eaten they headed over to the Scott's house.
Violet: Oh Liberty! I've missed you so much!
Liberty: Me too Violet! I've been so busy with work and raising Lucy that I couldn't ever find the time to come and visit!
Violet: I know, I know. It's completely fine! I brought my little ones over to meet Lucy. I felt like sunny might want to hang out with a girl her own age.
Liberty: That's great! Lucy is really quiet and doesn't have many friends. It will be good for her to talk to someone.
James: Hey sooo, my name is James.
Lucy: U-u-uhhh m-my n-name is Lucy.
James: Sooo what do you like to do for fun?
Lucy: Read books, and uh...play the violin.
James: Really?! Me too!
James: Yea! Wanna go inside and you can play something for me?
After a few hours of catching up with Liberty, Violet had to go to work.
Violet: Hey Liberty do you think you could watch my kids while I'm at work? I know it's short notice but they've been having so much fun!
Liberty: Yea that's completely fine don't worry about it!
Violet: Okay good, Camilo should be out of work soon so he'll stop by to pick them up. Talk to you later!
After Violet left the kids just kept watching cartoons and chitchating. But Sunny had realized her mother was gone and went to go talk to Liberty.
Sunny: Where's my Momma.
Liberty: Uh she's at work sweetie.
Sunny: I wanna go there.
Sunny: I miss her.
Liberty: Uh I don't think you can go over there, why don't you go play with Lucy?
Why Sunny was talking to Liberty James and Lucy were becoming really close and James realized they had a lot in common.
Lucy: So do you like playing games on the computer?
James: Duh! Who doesn't?
Lucy: I know right! Both my parents love playing video games so I was kinda raised into it. Plus my dad is in charge of making video games for work so he kinda takes his work home with him.
James: Woah he makes video games for a living?! That's so cool!!
James had headed off to go to the bathroom and Sunny came back to sit down with Lucy.
Sunny: You know. If you like my brother just tell him.
Lucy: Huh?! We just met! I mean yea he's nice but..yea I just met him!
Camilo had finally gotten off of work and came to pick up the kids, they were so excited to see him!
They couldn't contain themselves, they both ran up to their father and gave him the biggest hug ever, they had never been away from their parents before so long and they were surprised how much they missed them.
Violet couldn't wait to get home, she had gotten chewed out by some customers but she had gotten a promotion also! She was tired and just wanted to spend time with her family.
So to celebrate she decided to make some delicious lobster!
After dinner James and Sunny stayed at the table,
James: Ya know you aren't so bad for a little girl.
Sunny: Well your not to bad for being an overbearing older brother!
James: Well...I'm glad we can be friends now, I've noticed I get along with girls better than guys. Maybe you guys don't have cooties.
Camilo came home early from work and he also got a promotion! Promotions for everyone these days!
While Camilo was gloating about his promotion to Violet the kids were playing in James's room. James wanted Sunny to hear how well he had learned the violin and plus he needed help on his homework. Even though he was an A+ student his sister was still smarter than him! She could just get things, she never even needed help from their parents.
Before anyone knew it, it was time for James's birthday! Sunny had already invited Lucy over early so they could play together a little until the party started, and Violet had headed outside to set up for the party!
When she got back inside she saw James looking a little glum sitting on the sofa.
Violet: What's wrong sweetie?
James: I'm just gonna miss all my friends...
Violet: Well you have your best friend still! And she will be near the same age as you!
James: I know but she never wants to hang out because she has a boyfriend...
Violet: It'll be okay sweetpea. You'll make new friends in high school!
Violet had finished setting up outside! It is small but they only were inviting close friends.
And now the party was underway! Sunny got into the chocolate fountain and just stuck her hand in there without even grabbing a strawberry! Everyone played horseshoes and listened to awesome music! Then it was time to blow out the candles for the birthday boy!
Everyone meet James Belle, the teenage version! He gained the cheerful trait just like his mother and want to have a Big Happy Family!
That's all for now folks, hope you enjoyed!
