Holly's troubled days......

Watching Jilly struggle with the ups and downs of being a mom really scared Holly.  She didn't know if she would be able to handle this or not. She was only 16 and she felt like she was afraid of everything from disappointing Eden to never being happy or ending up  alone.  When it was her time, she wasn't sure how she felt about being a mother or her baby, Scotty.  She just felt alot of fear and anger and was so unsure of herself. Eden tried to be there for her and she adored baby Scotty.

Holly started sneaking out again and going out with Rick too. Her wild ways finally caught up with her and while Rick evaded the police Holly didn't.  She was arrested and brought back home to Eden with a stern warning. The police officer knew Eden and he wanted to give Holly one more chance but next time he wouldn't give an inch.

For the first time in her life, Eden felt all of her years.  She sat Holly down and they talked all night about everything. Holly told her all her fears and worries and Eden did her best to soothe them. She told her how proud she was of her and that no matter what she did she would always love her.  She explained how her dream was that her family would always have a place to call a home and there would always be love to support through all the hard times and joys to share through the happy ones too.

Something changed in Holly that night. She felt like a weight had been lifted off of her. She knew now that her mother loved her for the person she was and nothing would change that love. She vowed she would make some changes in her life and that she wanted to be as good mother to Scotty as Eden was to her.  Although she still had some moments of rebellion, she did her best to stick to her vow.  As he was growing up, Scotty thought the world revolved around his mother and grandmother.

The boys were growing fast and the girls were turning into young women. Eden thought her life was perfect in all the ways that counted.  She and Gilbert were as close as ever.

Nothing could change that......or at least she thought so.
The Landgrab family wanted to build a new shopping mall and they needed Eden's land....  and they planned to get it no matter what!

Eden's Retirement.....
Well time few fast, Jilly was due to deliver any day and Eden's birthday party was now here.  It was a strange day for them all.  Gilbert showed up as well as Daniel and Holly's new boyfriend, Rick.  Jilly was shocked after months of Daniel ignoring her calls that he came to the door to see her.  Eden had long ago accepted that she had to let her girls make their own decisions and just be there to support them. So she even accepted Daniel that day.
  The party was a festive one.  Eden had a fabulous time. She was looking forward to retiring from her job and spending the rest of her days on her land and being with her family.

Even her newly silver locks, did little to change Eden's beauty and Gilbert told her that she would make a very sexy grandmother Smiley

All the excitement and anticipation of the big day had worn Eden out and she retired for the night with the party still in full swing. The party was far from over when suddenly Jilly felt her first contractions!

Little Jamie was born just before midnight and on Eden's birthday.  Jilly was so overwhelmed by the feelings she had and having Daniel be there too.

Gilbert wasn't always the best father but when he saw how conflicted and emotional that Jilly was, he sent Daniel home and the rest of the girls to bed.  He tried to help Jilly deal with the changes having Jamie would bring and he knew she had a lot to think about....

   Jilly loved Jamie but she wasn't sure she was ready to be a mom.  She didn't know what she would have done if she hadn't had her parents and her sisters to help her through everything.  It was a good practice too for the family cause it wasn't long after that Holly found out she was pregnant too.  Eden was really concerned about Holly. Unlike Jilly who seemed to usually have her senses about her, Holly was so wild at times Eden never knew what to expect from her.  The days passed and Eden reveled in her retirement and new grandbaby.  Gilbert was a frequent visiter and she just felt so happy.

  Jamie was doted on by his mother, grandparents and aunts.  He already has a special fondness for his Eden and she looked forward to watching him grow up.  Then it was time for Jamie's first birthday

Astral Faery, thanks so much for your comments-lol this was my third round of doing the poverty challenge and I ended up still not doing exactly like you were supposed to but I have had such fun with this family.

lilroselou thanks so much for looking in and I really appreciate it-on their hair I'll look and see when I pull up my game next and see where they came from but I'm thinking either rose or raon? I download alot of hair from both of them and I think they were one of the newest ones a few weeks ago

A Long Winter........

The winter was hard on Eden and the girls. The lake was frozen and they didn't have the fish to help supplement their food or to make extra money. To top things off, Gilbert's comforting that winter day had an unexpected result and Eden found out she was pregnant again. Her maternity leave was once again extended and since she had never advanced at work the salary was barely enough to pay the bills let alone groceries and things the girls needed. Eden found herself becoming very skilled at fixing things in the house.  She also had a very difficult pregnancy this time and needed lots of rest.
    Jilly helped out a best she could by cleaning up and playing with Holly.  During that long winter Holly grew fast as a weed and before long she was able to join her sister at school and helping out around the house.

Jilly and Holly really bonded that winter and became best friends.  They were Eden's pride and joy.  Gilbert was busy working and taking care of his mother. He loved Eden and the girls but his life was taking him in another direction.

And if that winter wasn't hard enough in the middle of the night they were robbed by the cat burglar going through the small town.  Eden was so wiped out and exhausted that she slept right through it but the girls were so scared.

  But they made it through that long lonely winter. Spring came with lots of promise and changes for Eden and the girls. First, Eden had her baby.  A sweet little girl named Livie.  Jilly had matured and grown up to be a fine young girl. She was now a teenager and ready to find begin her life as a grown up. Eden worried about her cause she was still so young but had had to act as the grown up and keep things together for quite awhile during the last winter.

   Eden's fears were justified. Jilly seemed to be seeking something and was trying her wings.  She took to staying at the old scouts home and park into the late hours of the night. She also discovered boys in a major way.  She loved to flirt and make friends. She felt very grown up when she flirted and turned a boy's head her way.

  However just like her mom, she fell for a guy she met right outside her own door at the mailbox.  His name was Daniel.  He was tall and good looking and very charming. He was also an adult but that didn't bother Jilly she fell for him hard. Eden was not impressed. She knew who he was and nothing she said to Jilly seemed to change her infatuation of him.

    Their courtship was fast and fun for Jilly. She fell for Daniel and wouldn't listen to her mother at all. Eden tried but couldn't get to Jilly. Eden tried talking to Daniel too about what a bright and beautiful person Jilly was and that she had so much promise. He didn't care.  What Eden knew that Jilly didn't was that Daniel was married to a pretty young woman in town and they had 7 kids.  He was seen all over town charming all the girls and ladies. Jilly wouldn't believe it. Time passed and Daniel stopped coming around.  Little Livie was turning a year old and Jilly found herself in the family way.....with Daniel no where to be found.

Eden was sad that Jilly was going through such a heartbreaking time. She had to temporarily leave school while she was pregnant.  She was devestated that Daniel wouldn't return her calls and she was hurt. Eden felt for her daughter but she didn't regret the baby. She loved Jilly and she would love her new grandbaby with all her heart.  She didn't judge Jilly either cause she had found in her own situation that she loved Gilbert in spite of everything. She had come to understand that she couldn't change him and that she either had to accept that he wasn't going to give her the fairytale life she once thought she wanted or that she accept him as he was.  She chose to take him as he was cause she was happy. It wasn't ideal but she had three beautiful daughters, a strong little house and her beautiful land....and his love for how ever faulted it may be. He had her heart.

   The summer of changes......
Looking back, Eden wasn't sure how they had made it through that winter and spring but they did. Holly was now a teenager and a wild one at that.  Much like her sister, Holly loved the boys and worse of all she liked to sneak out at night. She was the constant concern of her mother and sisters. She had a bit of an attitude too about everything from school to her house to Eden. She wanted more and especially more expensive things even though she knew they couldn't afford them.

Livie on the other hand had grown to a happy girl who loved to dance and fish. She was really her mother's daughter and loved the land.

    Jilly was due to have the baby soon, Livie was doing great in school and for the moment Holly seemed to be doing better in school and had quit sneaking out so much. What none of the girls thought about was Eden. She was getting older and she was getting tired. She was happy. In spite of their struggles she wouldn't trade her girls for anything. Even though she knew she and Gilbert wouldn't ever marry, she still loved him and in his own way he was devoted to her and the girls.  In many ways, once she decided to accept him as he was, they had become closer and he came around more now than ever. Eden had worked really hard in building her little home and with the new grandbaby coming she had been saving as much as possible to expand the house.  Her birthday was coming soon and retirement was approaching. She worried if she had done well by her girls. Had she prepared them for a life that one day wouldn't include her.......

Just when Eden was about to return to work, she began feeling sick. She knew that feeling all to well. She was pregnant again.  Although her boss wasn't too happy, she went back on maternity leave.  Jilly was growing up too and getting into everything

Before the new baby came, Jilly's birthday arrived and she grew up into happy child

This is Jilly on her first day of school

Then baby Holly was born.  Holly was a pretty baby but a very fussy one.

Gilbert was absent again and Eden was beginning to wonder if he would ever return. She loved her girls but times were hard. Her maternity leave was almost over and she didn't know what she would do then.  Holly had a birthday approaching and she knew she would have to make some tough decisions soon.

Eden loved both her daughters but she was unprepared for how difficult Holly could be at times. Jilly was so easygoing and friendly and Holly...well Holly had a mind of her own.

She also like to fake her mom out sometimes.  Holly would go to bed (eventually) but then would escape her crib and go on an adventure.

Eden's solution was to use those escape moments to do potty training and learning to walk & talk....that eventually curbed some of the pouty behavior.

Worried about what she was going to do Eden called Gilbert to have a long talk.  He came over right away to discuss their future and visit with Jilly and Holly.

In the middle of his visit, a sudden snow storm hit and the lake froze over. Eden was truly worried about how she was going to provide for her girls now.  Gilbert tried to soothe her worries and in the midst of their fighting little Holly upset by the arguing wandered out into the deep deep snow.  No one could find her and Eden was in a panic.  

Eden and Gilbert went searching for her and found her outside in her pajamas waiting for attention.  She wouldn't come to Gilbert though cause he had been fighting with her mommy.  Eden got her safely back in and then tried to explain to little Holly how dangerous going in the snow could be but all Holly wanted was to be held and visit the snowman Jilly had made outside. She never wanted to listen to Eden when she tried to explain how some things were for her own good.

Jilly just wanted things to be happy again and offered to help her mother do anything to make times better.  She was worried about her mother and very protective of her little sister.

On her very first day as she was planning where she would build her house, a group of neighbor's from the town nearby showed up.

This is how she met Gilbert. He had dark hair and compelling eyes. She didnt' even notice him at first but he kept coming by and everytime she went to the park or about town she kept running into him.  At the start, she didn't have much money for supplies or food so she kept going to the park to get free hotdogs and use their facilities.

 She got a job as security guard at night to help make ends meet.  She could only afford a few things in the beginning and all her money went to building her home. Winter would be coming in awhile and she wanted to be settled in before the snows.  

Things kept going better and better with Gilbert and before long they were inseperable.  She fell in love with Gilbert. She longed for marriage but he told her that for now he had to stay with his elderly mother and take care of her.

It wasn't long before Eden discovered she was pregnant. She was so thrilled to begin a family of her very own. Although it wasn't always the way she imagined she knew she would love this child more than anyone in the world.  
She was able to take maternity leave for awhile and she spent most of that time building up her house, fishing to stock the fridge and making extra income. She had just finished the house on one stormy rainy night when the
labor pains began.....

And there in the rain with only the mountains and hills surrounding her, baby Jilly was born.

Being a mom wasn't as easy as she thought it would be but her heart couldn't even contain all the love she had for Jilly.  She hadn't heard from Gilbert in awhile but she still called and kept him updated on Jilly and everything she did.

Time flew and luckily she had a mild winter.  Jilly was a happy baby and before Eden knew it it was time for Jilly's birthday.

Eden was thrilled that Gilbert came by too to spend time with Jilly and her.
