Happy Birthday Larry Denzil

Happy Birthday Larry Denzil! We celebrated his birthday friday and saturday evening. On friday, we went out to KFC. Nothing special there. We had a coupon and it was nearby. On saturday, I baked him fudge brownies. That is what he wanted. I am glad since Savannah's birthday is just 6 days later. He had candles and everything.

Today, on his special day, he went off to Durham. He left at 5AM like any other day. He went to the gym and then off to Durham. They are suppose to have a cake for him there. I think his boss called and told them it was Larry's birthday. Hopefully he will get a free meal too.

Here are some pictures I took of Larry Denzil and the kids. I hope you all enjoy them. The last picture is of Ruby at the end of the day. I am not sure how she was slepping, but she was.

This picture here is of Ethan and his very green feet. Unfortunately you can't see that well here, but his feet were super green from playing barefoot in the grass. Luckily, I do not care for our already stained carpet or his green feet would have been in trouble.

Today I have spent the day figuring out what to purchase for Savannah's birthday. She asked for a game girl, a tv in her room, and a tree house. When did they get such expensive tastes? Well, I found a great deal on a webkin himalayan cat, and a dance mat game to plug into our tv. I think Larry Denzil may be getting her piano lessons from a lady in our branch. I did find a game boy for her with much help from the Hurt family. You have to love them Hurts. Because Savannah's birthday is this sunday, we will be celebrating it next monday at Fuddruckers. Happy Birthday all you April babies.

I forgot to mention that Ruby had her 18 month check up. She is growing leaps and bounds on her growth chart. She is 32 inches long and just 25 pounds and 10 ounces. She was just above the 50th percentile.

I also forgot to mention that on saturday, poor Larry Denzil had to do a service project that I volunteered him for. Because of the weather, my part had been cancelled, but his part had not. The primary school was maintenancing the landscape. All men were shoveling mulch. My little Brownie troop was suppose to plant flowers that we purchased with some of our cookie funds, but it was raining. We are going to plant our flowers this thursday at our meeting. I will try to have some pictures of the girls working hard.


Larry Happy Birthday from your long lost cousin in UT. Hope you had a great one. And by the way we are so jealous that you now have Jason and Sheba living so close to you. :) Jackie

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,…
