Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Every day I’ll list three things that may, or may not, be related. The challenge is to simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you, using one, two or all three words in your post. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post and don’t forget to leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. While you’re there, why not check out some of the other posts too!
Have fun and these are your three things today are:
By Tessa Dean January 2021
Thomas, Ginny and his brothers all gathered around to see the pictures of the two new babies. His father had dropped the pictures off so they could all see before they brought them home. Thomas looked around as this would be the last time there was just ten kids. They were about to become a dozen.
“What’s their names Dad?” Thomas tried to quiet them all down so they could hear the names of their new brother and sister.
“Mary Elizabeth and Jacob John,” their father, James Banks, answered them. “Your sister is named after your mother’s two sisters and your brother is named after my brothers. Naming all of you kids has been quite difficult. It is hard getting two people to agree to a name and we had to do twelve of you.”
A slim woman came into the yard and the children ran to her, except Anthony who clung to Ginny’s skirt. Ginny whispered, “Is that the other aunt? Anthony isn’t letting go of my skirt. I remember what your Aunt Mary said the other night.”
“Yes that is my Aunt, Elizabeth Armstrong. She is the baby of the family.”
“Hi all! I am so excited to see my new niece and nephew. I am especially happy about my niece. You guys are going to have to take care of her. Keep her safe. She has 11 big brothers. She even happened to fall into the last in line when it came to her birth ranking.”
“Aunt Elizabeth, this is Ginny Carpenter, my girlfriend.”
“Nice to meet you Ginny. I see Anthony loves you too.”
“Ok, let’s go Beth and pick up Sherry and the twins,” James said. Excitement was gleaming in his eyes.
