Beesly 4: Round 10

Last round was a busy one for the Beesly family. Oldest son Connecticut grew to a teenager and prepared for college, with his sister Florida close behind him. Meanwhile, England's lifetime want to graduate 3 children from college led to another pregnancy, which in turn resulted in twin boys Ohio and Hampshire. With one less child in the house, things must be calming down around the house now.

Or not...

England: Remind me why Arizona ate that cheesecake again?

And it seems like Florida has chosen her lifetime want. Easy enough, I guess.

So, I have to ask...any more kids on the horizon for you?

Arizona: No, I don't think so.

England: Absolutely not.

Arizona: I mean, I entertained the idea of trying for another girl...

England: But then we decided that four was enough.

Arizona: Right. 

Looks like the toddler years are finally over. Happy birthday, dear Ohio...

...and Hampshire...

And Hampshire looks just like his older brother.

And Ohio still has a lot of Beesly in his face.

Getting a workout in?

England: I think I ate too much cake last night.

Well, celebrating two birthdays at once will do that.

Arizona: know how we decided not to have any more kids?

England: .....yes?

Arizona: Well, sick this morning...

Oh, I think I just heard the school bus outside...let's see how the boys' first day went.

Looks like Hampshire made a friend. Sears is really getting around.

So, what was that about not having any more kids?

Arizona: I didn't plan this, I swear.

How do you plan to break the news to England?

Arizona: ...I don't know.'s so rare that siblings like each other that much...

And I see you're taking over gardening duties...

Florida: Yeah, it gets a little crazy in the house with the boys older now.

Hampshire: I got an A+!

Great job, and if I'm not mistaken that means...

Yup, like clockwork.

It's baby time!

And it looks like you got your heiress.

Arizona: We're naming her Oklahoma.

Well, hi there April and Corey. I almost forgot you guys were here.

And Oklahoma seems to be a good mix of both parents...

Going to give the gypsy a shot, huh?

Florida: I hope this works...

It's ok if it doesn't. I make a pretty good backup gypsy, if I do say so myself.

You know, it's a shame we're done adding extra boys...because Florida marrying Orlando would have been too funny.

I would think that the new baby isn't quite as overwhelming with 4 adults and a teenager in the house.

April: No, actually our biggest problem seems to be that we all want to take care of her at the same time.

Giant Robot...

That money just never gets old...

Happy birthday dear Oklahoma...

And she looks just like her older brother. She should grow into those cheekbones nicely.

Wow, a walking lesson before the makeover?

England: Yup, I've got my priorities figured out.

Would have thought potty training would have been first on the list...

Nice job on the hairstyle, though...

Um, Ohio?

Ohio: Yes?

I've been meaning to ask somebody this...what's up with the outdoor phone?

Ohio: ...I don't know. We've just always had one out here.

I guess it could come in handy in case of an outdoor fire.

Ok, let's try this one more time...

Florida: I'm starting to think this whole matchmaker thing is a ripoff...


Ugh! Gypsy, how many times do I have to tell you? Once they are in a relationship with someone else, they are out of rotation!

Gypsy: Hey, I'm not at every house all the time. How am I supposed to know that?

Aren't you psychic?

Gypsy: ...Um...

Well, even though things really didn't work out on the romance front at least Florida's scholarships turned out really well. I'll see you at graduation, and everybody else next round.

A Message from the Mysterious Voice: Man, this post took a long time for me to write! It's been in the works for a while now. It wasn't until I started writing it that I realized I pretty much ignored Corey and April all week. And I'm still upset that I couldn't make the Orlando and Florida romance work out...
