(Russo-Traver Household Profile)
John Russo (76 years), Zeke Traver (46 years), Morgan (45 years), Cicely (15 years), Vivienne (15 years)
Morgan had to work on the twins’ actual birthday, so they’d gotten permission to go shopping with some girls from school, and they scheduled the family pool party for later in the month. With great persistence, the girls had talked her into a co-ed birthday party. They insisted that turning fifteen and being banned from boys was archaic, and Morgan wasn’t swayed. It wasn’t until they exclaimed that Lewis had ruined their lives did she relent.
Violet-Adele’s 39th birthday rolls around and she doesn’t feel much like celebrating. The passing of her Father is still too new, and to add to injury, they are still not pregnant.
She had never been in a rush to have a baby, but with her fortieth birthday fast approaching, and the loss of her Dad, she feels an unfamiliar urgency. Etienne tries his best to lift her spirits, conveying a sense of peace that they will soon find themselves expecting.
Thomas Traver celebrates his fourth birthday this winter. It’s a momentous birthday celebration for Caitlyn as well, she’s survived being a teen Mom, the death of her Mom, being dumped by her boyfriend, and still managed to graduate college. Thomas has always been her inspiration to keep at it, and she’s beyond proud of the boy he is growing into.
Logan Traver celebrates his eleventh birthday and prepares to start sixth grade this month. Family has always been important to him, and when he learned of his half-sister, Eden’s existence, he immediately wanted to befriend her, so Erin isn’t surprised that he’s retained that into his teen years.
He’s glad that he resembles his Mom more than his deadbeat Dad, and has requested a new surname. He’s hopeful that Nico and his Mom will marry, and then he’ll request to have their last name, otherwise he’s thinking Louie like his Mom and Aunt Bethany. He doesn’t think Colin deserves acknowledgement in his life, but Erin is hesitant to agree as he is still young and prone to impulsive decisions.
*huge birthday post! you’ve been warned!*
Isla Andersen celebrates her birthday this summer. She isn’t a fan of subdue things like her big sister Ainsley, and education is not high on her list of important things, but she’s looking forward to more freedom as a teen now. She intends to spend her time lazing around and goofing off, just not at home.

narrated by: Lorelei
We saved money to get our backyard fenced this spring, and Marshal insisted we needed a garden to teach Penelope the value in nurturing things. I readily agreed, thinking a garden would be less work than a pet, but I may come to eat my own words on that.

Kenzie Goss (64 years), Tyler (62 years)
narrated by: Kenzie
I’ve had a more difficult time with Dean moving to university, than I expected. He moved out all of his belongings and furniture aside from the bed, which the dorm supplied, and I find myself sulking in there when Tyler is occupied. He doesn’t approve of the mopey attitude, but I miss having him home.
