Happy Spring

What a busy spring we have had thus far. We traveled over to Ashland, KY 2 weeks ago. We had some paper work to do and we opened up savings accounts for the kids over at the credit union. Our kids enjoyed spending quality time with their Papaw and with Uncle Ben & Trisha. I think it was the first time my kids have ever seen Papaw cook. He made them bacon and eggs one morning and pancakes and sausage the next. It was quite a sight. I would have taken pictures for posterity, but Larry Denzil had my camera. And even though Papaw made pancakes, Xander sure did miss Mamaws pancakes.

We visited with the Hurts a great deal. We were able to share in their good news that Jason is moving back home. Emalene and Denzil, look out because you have an overjoyed Granny waiting to get her hands on you. Ruby has taken a huge liking to 2 things in the Hurt household, Lincoln and Sammy Jo. I never got any of her with Lincoln, but here are some of her with Sammy Jo.

Every time Sammy would wag her tail, Ruby would just laugh and giggle. And Ruby would pull on her tail trying to get her to wag it more. Poor Sammy Jo could not get up so she had to suffer through Ruby's abuse.

Larry Denzil is going out of town for his birthday so we celebrated it early. I got him a playstation 3 along with some blu ray movies. It looks really nice. We haven't tried a game on it yet.

I finally cut Ethan's hair last week. It was a very hard thing to do. Larry Denzil has always wanted to cut Ethan's hair, but I loved his little curls. And I realized the longer it was getting, the curly some sections were. I guess I can grow it out again, but Ethan loves all the attention he is getting with it being short. Here are some before and after pictures. I think it aged him 3 years.

Ruby is a very popular little baby doll in our house. The boys dressed her up in Savannah's old bathing suit. Ruby is also a cuddle bug and loves pictures. Here she is lying on top of Ethan. This is a very common occurence in our house. You never know

who Ruby will attach herself to.

This weekend, we hope to get our garden started. I will make sure to take some pictures of the kids working hard in the yard.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoys the blog.

Oh, Ethan's beautiful hair! I guess it had to be done but I sure am sad about it. It was gorgeous! I don't know how you did it. I about cried when we buzzed Carter's hair and he barely had any!

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,…
