Orb's Year 914
Braden had congratulated her and hugged her, then tapped Cade on the knee and told him they needed to get out to the field.
Orb's Year 915
Able smiled back, "Love them!" he said simply. "Shower them with love and they will grow tall and proud. Then we can sit back and watch."
Beth Ann smiled wearily. "You are such a farmer..." Then, she grew serious again. "Where will we put them all? We only have 2 rooms and they're both full. Deanna's growing older and will need her own space away from the boys."
Able considered this problem. "We have money set aside. We can have a loft put in."
Orb's Year 916
"Orb's truth!" Braden laughed. "Twin girls! Papa and mama will have a fun time with that!"
"Thankfully all the kids are downstairs! This will be our hideout of sorts! To talk about girls and ale and whatever else we fancy!"
Braden shook his head, "You're too young to be thinking of girls, ale and fancies! You need to keep your feet more firmly on the ground, Cade," Braden lectured.
"Aw, but Braden, it's fun to dream and fancy! Leave me to float in the clouds and flirt with the girls. You be the one with your feet firmly rooted with the vegetables!"
Ennis didn't want to be stuck in the baby's room anymore. "But, papa, there's another bed up there. I won't bother them! The babies wake me up at all hours."
Able set his book aside and considered Ennis. "You're right. You need your rest just as well as your elder brothers. I'll speak to them about allowing you a place in their hideout." He winked at Ennis.
Ennis couldn't wait to climb the ladder upstairs. The brothers had never let him up before saying he was too little and that it was their secret hideout.
Able smiled as Ennis scampered off. It still amazed him how fast his family grew!
