Wow what a day we had yesterday! I took Xander and Ethan to the dentist yesterday morning. They both went back together but at separate stations for their dental work. I was a bit worried about Ethan being alone. Having Ruby, I cannot go back with them. Anyways, about 30 to 40 minutes later, Ethan came out with little chipmunk cheeks. The dentist said he did great and he was a brave little soul. He had to have two small cavities filled. He said it hurt and went about his business. About 15 to 20 minutes after Ethan came out, Xander came out with 2 new silver teeth. He had not seen them but said his mouth hurt. Then he ran and played. These kids are so tough, you would not have known they had dental work done.

When we went to the school to tube Larry, he saw Xander's new teeth and said "that's so cool! I want some too." Wouldn't you know, cavities can be a cool thing in our family.

Yesterday afternoon's appointment was the one I was most worried about. Savannah had to have the first of 2 teeth pulled. She was back there more than an hour. Savannah was so excited to go though. I kept telling her she was having a tooth pulled and she said she did not care she was just excited to go. Well, when she came out, she had a mouth full of gauze, her cavity filled tooth around her neck, and a pink nose mask that smelled like bubble gum. She was so popular all night. The boys wanted to see the tooth and smell the mask. She never complained and ate dinner like nothing had happened. "Are these my kids?" I am a big cry baby with pain and they act like it is nothing.

Last night we were under a severe weather warning, but it gave me a lot of awesome snap shots. The kids saw the most beautiful rainbow right in our back yard. Savannah wanted to go outside and hunt for the leprechaun's pot of gold. She thought she would be RICH! And the clouds were indescribable. Larry Denzil swore it was something you would see in a end of the world / alien flick.

I am sure those of you with school age children know that Dr. Seuss' birthday was this week. Larry has been coming home with prop's all week. One day he had labels on his feet for left foot and right foot, then he had the famous Dr. Seuss red and white top hat. Ruby fell in love with that hat and walked all over the place with it on. We can't wait to see what he brings

home today.

Wow, I love your "end of the world" picture. Those clouds are amazing. What a great picture! Oh, and of course, your kids are adorable! Sometimes I think it's harder on us moms than the kids when they're hurt. I love your new blog. Was it hard to set up?

A Young Man Turns 9

It is so hard to believe that my oldest boy turned 9 on Dec 30th. 9 years! Wow. We began our journey with little Larry at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. My 17 week ultrasound had shown that I was carrying twins in which 1 twin had died just the week before. It was such devastating news. I remember lying there thinking do such things happen. The poor OB cried along with us. He honestly was not sure what the outcome would be for the living twin because it appeared the 2 babies shared a sac. Not only did they share a sac, but it also appeared the 2 might even be conjoined at the abdomen. Of course I went to a specialist who was able to determine the "syndrome." I really HATE that word. But my baby had what is known as OEIS Syndrome. Oomphalocoele, Exstrophy, Imperforate Anus, Spina Bifida. Wow. What is this and do such things really exist? Well, the specialist really only wanted to help us out in 1 way, abortion. He felt this child would never live a normal life. And yet he had never…

Beach Blanket Bingo

Last week we packed our bags and headed for Hilton Head Island. We had never been there before and heard rave reviews from quite a few friends.  Being just 5 hours from our house, how could we not look into it. Such a love affair between father and daughter. These two absolutely adore one another. My fearless Ethan.  He scared me too death because he was always out far from the beach and alone. He had absolutely no fear and was a pro on that little boogie board. Funny story, on our first day there,  Ethan had gotten out a little far and was alone so Larry Denzil went out to join him. Behind Ethan, Larry saw a fin peer up out of the water  in reaching distance and pulled Ethan to him. When he turned toward the shore, it was just a dolphin.  Whew!   I absolutely love this picture.  Ethan just sat in the shallow pool of water and did what looked like synchronized swimming.
Xander and Larry both boogie boardin' fools. Larry tried to hit dad up for a surf board. What was he thinking?  I can tell teen years …

One Last Summer Hurrah

Well, our saturday got off to a rocky start, but in the end, I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  We started the morning off by running a few quick errands.  On our way home, we stopped at the local Krispy Kreme and went to Carrier Park for breakfast.  While at the park, Larry and the kids did a little exploring and I found this neat tree.  Each kid was super excited to climb up and have their picture taken.  Xander was the first.  He had absolutely no fear and climbed up fairly high.  He was much higher than any other child.

This is my favorite picture of little Larry.  He just looks like such a man here.  He is really good at posing for shots too.  Can you tell I take hundreds of pictures of the kids because they instinctively know just how to pose.

We placed Ruby and Ethan up in the tree.  Both of them wanted down as soon as they were up. Ethan said he was too high.

Here is my beautiful Savannah.  She is growing so fast.

Ruby loved the tree once Daddy was in it with her. As a matter of fact,…
