Harts - 23

Gayle ran outside to greet her parents.  "Daddy!" she said happily.  "Dance with me!" 

Marylena looked on as Frankie danced with his daughter on his toes.  She felt such love well up in here.  Her husband was such a wonderful man!

"Gayle, it's time to go play.  Mommy needs to talk to Daddy."

Gayle grumbled as she ran inside.

Frankie lifted an eyebrow.  "What did we need to talk...."

Marylena stopped him mid-sentence.

Gayle had run inside and bugged her brother Parker while he was talking to his friends.  She didn't know why he was acting like he was too cool for her! 

"I know who he has a crush on!" Gayle teased.

Parker glared.  "Quit it, Gayle!"

Dierk took pity on Gayle. After all, she was one of his sister's friends.  "Come on Gayle, I'll go swing you outside for alittle bit."  Dierk led her outside with Gayle smirking the whole way.

Marylena's pregnancy surprised her.  No wonder I wasn't feeling well this week! she thought.  She'd been tired & hungry all day!  Now she knew!

Ashlee was happy that Frankie and Marylena let her stay here.  She probably should've moved in with Matt & Theo when they got their own place, but she was set in her ways.  Besides, this is where her husband was buried.  She couldn't leave here! 

"Aunt Ashlee, I wouldn't dream of you going!" Frankie had said when she mentioned her concerns.  "You're like a second Mom to me! You helped raise me!"

Ashlee was touched.  She loved Freddie & Frankie like they were her own, too.   And all of their children as though they were her grandchildren.

And little Chandler! That little boy was so cute!  It made her remember when her children were young.  Her late husband had absolutely loved being a Dad!

(Just another cute photo of Chandler!)

Soon it was time Ashlee to join her husband in the afterlife.  Freddie was heartbroken.  He'd meant it when he said she was like a second Mom to him.  He wept bitterly as they decorated her graveside.

Soon, thoughts of death turns to thoughts of life as Marylena delivered their 4th child, little boy Hunter.

Happy Birthday Gayle!

Happy Birthday Chandler!

Gayle had seen Dierk wander in the garage to play on their DJ booth.  Grinning, she headed after him. 
Walking straight up to him, she kissed him.

"Gayle!" he'd said, shocked.  "What are you doing?!"

Gayle grinned as she trailed a finger down his shirt.  "I just thought I'd thank you for being such a great friend."

"Gayle! That's not how you thank someone! They'll get the wrong idea!"

"Oooo.... what ideas are you getting?"

Dierk was flabbergasted!  She was like his kid sister! "This is wrong!" he said, sputtering.

Looping her arms around his neck, Gayle leaned forward until her lips were almost against his.  "Does that mean I shouldn't kiss you like this?"

She took his silence as her answer and made out with him.

Parker had been enjoying the party & then stopped abruptly when he saw Cecelie holding his little brother, Hunter.  The sight of her holding a baby made his breath catch in his throat.  She looked so beautiful.  He couldn't wait until they grew up & had a baby of their own!

Sitting on the floor with Hunter between them, they talked all night long about life, love & marriage.

Parker didn't know about her, but he couldn't imagine himself with anyone else!

Gayle was loving being a teenager!  Finally Parker's friends didn't look at her like a little pest, but as someone they needed to get to know!

Especially the boys!

And she got such a thrill sashaying for any cute guys that walked through the door, no matter how old they were!
(Family dinner at the table!  Gayle looks so much like her mother, but with alittle bit softer features, I think!)
Happy Birthday Hunter!

Happy Birthday Frankie!
