What a busy week week we are having. Xander's glasses did not survive 1 month. Last friday evening, his teacher called to explain what had happened to his glasses. Xander never said a word. I had no clue they were broken. Appparently Xander had them on the end of his desk. A fellow student walked past and accidentally knocked them off the desk when another student came by and stepped on them. The lense is popped out, and the frame is all bent. I guess he didn't really need glasses anyways.

Spring is around the corner here. All the trees are in bloom. This morning when the kids and I walked up to the bus stop, it was 57 degrees. Too bad it is overcast.

Last night was spaghetti night in our family. I had to take this picture of Ethan. He loves spaghetti and ate every bit of it. I swear I did not fix this up.

Yesterday I had to pick Larry up from school early. He got sick and was throwing up. His teacher thought maybe a stomach virus was going around because aother little boy went home throwing up. I thought it was strange because that is not how it works for Larry. He was great when he left. When I got
there, he told me maybe he had drank too much
water. I found that very suspicious because he was only there for 2 hours and would have had to drink a gallon of fluids. When we got home, he tubed himself and had 700 ccs of urine. The child is lucky he did not rupture. Apparently in the wait for the restroomyesterday morning, he had forgotten to tube himself. For those of you that don't know, Larry does all his cares on his own now. He does not like Larry Denzil & I being involved. He is" 7 afterall. Gee mom." I wish I would have taken a picture of him. I promise to add one later this week.

Here are my two sleeping babies yesterday afternoon. I wish I could have joined them in some afternoon slumber!

This next picture I tried to take, but Ruby would not cooperate.

She was really upset with me. But I thought you guys could get

an idea of what Larry Denzil looks like when he goes off to work

at 5AM. I am just kidding. Larry Denzil runs off to the gym

every morning now. His knee is healing well. He still has pain

and moves gingerly but he is gaining strength. He started some

leg excercises this week.

This next picture is Ruby in front of one of our many windows.

These are her favorite little spots in our house. She stands by this window every afternoon about the same time waiting for her Daddy to come home. Like Savannah once was, she is truly a Daddy's little girl. They share a bowl of popcorn nearly every night. Here soon, they will be sharing pop ice.

This other picture is Ruby in her 2nd favorite spot, my rocking chair. She is taking her mroning nap in this shot. Usually she is rocking away.

On a happy note, we want to congratulate Benny and Hope who are expecting their first child, Ava, due to arrive by c-section on Larry Denzil's birthday April 14. If I were Uncle Ben and Trisha, I would worry at how much Larry Denzil is involved in their children's lives. Jason't first born is named Denzil and now Benny's first born is arriving on Larry's birthday. Pretty freaky.

I do hope you guys are enjoying our blog. I love taking photos of my kids and sharing them with all of you. I also like sharing our lives with all of you. We hope this finds everyone healthy and well and preparing for Spring.

Marsha, I love being able to keep up with your family this way. I wish we still lived close together so I could see ya'll. If you ever go to myspace, I have an account there with pics of my animals and my nephew.

Keep the blog going. I'm living vicariously though you. :)
What a beautiful family should be so proud.

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,…
