YEAR FOUR: the family adopts a [name_m]Bombay[/name_m] cat called Winston; Allastair picks up the nickname [name_m]Buddy[/name_m] and ends up being called that more than his real name; Xiuying has a baby girl named [name_f]Molly[/name_f] Samantha; [name_f]Molly[/name_f] swallows a coin on [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] [name_f]Eve[/name_f] and the family spends the evening in the ER getting her x-rayed, but she was perfectly fine.

Xiuying takes up sewing and begins making clothes for all of the kids in the family; Allastair does not like the clothes she makes for him, but [name_f]Molly[/name_f] adores her new princess dresses made by her mummy.

YEAR SEVEN: With all of the stresses of life, [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] becomes addicted to smoking nicotine; After months of rigorous treatment/therapy, she manages to break the cycle.

It is also discovered that [name_m]Colin[/name_m] is allergic to dogs after the family dog-sits for a neighbor.

YEAR EIGHT: The family takes a small holiday to the nearby city of Bournemouth UK for a beach trip.

[name_m]Colin[/name_m] develops nightmares that keep the family up at night for several months; therapy does not seem to work much but finally they reach a breakthrough with keeping a sleep diary and restructuring his nighttime schedule. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] develops symptoms of a previously undiagnosed heart defect; thankfully they are able to catch it in time before it develops severe side-effects and two surgeries successfully fix the issue.
