Enjoying the Spring

Well, I have been busy spring cleaning. I finally finished both the boys and girls rooms. What a task that was. When do they get old enough to clean it up themselves? I hauled away 2 large bags of clothes from the boys room and 2 smaller bags from the girls room. I donated all the items to free cycle. An awesome group on yahoo. I even have a small bag of baby toys going to my sister.
We got our stimulus package yesterday. Hopefully we can put it to good use. The boys need a bunk bed and Savannah needs a new mattress. Maybe later this summer we can afford to buy some furniture. Larry Denzil gets his new pay grade in July. Right now he has his eye on an apple desk top.

While cleaning the girls closet, I found some old outfits of Savannah's that I had saved. Krista, there are quite a few beautiful outfits that you had given Savannah. Unfortuantely Ruby did not get to wear them because I forgot I had them. I did find one of my favorites that Larry and I got at Pigeon Forge when Savannah was 8 months old. Here is Ruby sporting the denim osh kosh jumper. Unlike big sis, Ruby has a lot of chub in her legs. As a matter of fact, I think Ruby's thighs are larger than Savannah's right now. It is funny how all your kids can be so different from one another.Here is the sandbox that brought on the rain. Ethan & Ruby absolutely love it. The first day, they spent over an hour just filling buckets of sand. I have forgotten how messy sandboxes can be. Ruby comes in with her pants full of sand every time she gets in it.
Here is our old jumpolene. We bought this
back when we lived in Red Fox. Unfortunately it had some holes that I tried patching but Ruby was able to rip it off. Maybe we will get another one for Christmas. I let them enjoy it for an afternoon till all the air was out.
Here is Ruby enjoying our spaghetti night. My
kids love to eat pasta. Usually I give Ruby just the noodles but I forgot on this night. She absolutely loved the sauce.
Well, I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather.

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,…
