Father Son Campout 2008

Well, last weekend was a lot of fun for all. Larry Denzil and the boys went on their first ever father son campout. Larry's coworker came along with one of his boys as well and had a really good time. We had 3 dads from our branch show up. Larry Denzil came to the realization that he is a lot older than he used to be and can't sleep just anywhere. He came home sore all over. The boys came home exhausted. They stayed up late and woke up early and had a very full saturday. Apparently they went watersliding down a rock and went to a fish hatchery. Xander said it was really cold and little Larry says he almost drowned. Interesting. All things Larry Denzil failed to mention.

Savannah, Ruby and I went out to eat and watched Enchanted. Savannah is so in love with that movie. She told me she wished I was pretty like the princess. She also wished I could sing like her. Isn't that a wonderful mothers day present?

For mothers day, Larry Denzil did all the cooking. It was a wonderful treat. Unfortunately, he did none of the cleaning.

On sunday evening, we had a terrible wind storm here. Our power went out around 1AM and did not kick back on until 4:15PM Monday. Ethan and I were so bored. We went to McDonalds for a late breakfast and hung out at Sams. Then we went to the school and I honestly thought my power would be on by then. It was not. And the bad part was that it was too windy to play outside. There were large tree branches all over our yard and our shed door was literally ripped off. Our neighbors had numerous shingles blown off. And on the main road, there were 3 large trees uprooted. We drove around a bit and it was scarey to see all the trees that had fallen and some trees looked as though the tops had been ripped off. And a railroad crossing arm was bent over from the strong winds. Larry Denzil said it looked like a tornado came through.

Today we are getting our Apple computer. Larry Denzil is so excited.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I thought it looked cold and thought it was because I'm used to Utah weather, but I guess it was cold. I'm glad everyone came home safe and happy.

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,…
