The Great Dandelion Hunt

Well, I had to take pictures and share this with everyone. Yesterday evening when Larry Denzil got home from work, we all went outside and picked dandelions. It was a literal competition for the kids. Larry Denzil told them whoever picks the most, will get 2 candy bars. I never saw so much mayhem. It was like an egg hunt all over again. Savannah played it smart and won the hunt. She saw Larry Denzil and I both picking flowers and would run over to us to collect ours and add to hers.

For those of you who do not know, we live on just over a half acre level lot. That is something very hard to come by in this mountainous region. So Larry is very proud of his yard and tries to maintain it. The last thing he wants to see are weeds.

This weekend, we hope to get our garden plowed. We are in the planning stages of deciding what to plant. Last year we were quite successful with our tomatoes canning over 20 qt jars. But our corn did not turn out very well. I will be sure to take pictures of our family in our garden. I hope everyone is healthy and well and enjoying the spring weather as much as we are.

To Benny and Hope, I wish you guys a successful delivery of your darling little girl Ava. Good luck you guys and enjoy your rest over this next week.

Finally a picture of you! Lord you haven't changed much.

Are you coming back to Georgia anytime soon? How long does it take to get from here to there?

Keep the blog coming. I'm living vicariously through you. :)

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 …

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…

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,…
