Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all the mommys a very Happy Mothers Day. Yesterday I was surprised with a bouquet of 2 dozen roses DELIVERED! Anyone who knows Larry Denzil, knows he does not send flowers. He has never sent me flowers. On a rare few occassions he has bought me flowers and delivered them himself. Most of that occurred during our dating years. Anyways, I wanted to share my beautiful bouquet from Proflowers.

As you all know, we have been working very hard in our yard. We have our garden up, with the exception of a few plants the kids have brought from school. Xander has brought home about 5 plants and for FHE we ate cantaloupe and the kids planted all those seeds which have sprouted. Anyways, when we moved here, our yard was bare with the exception of a lonely hibiscis tree. Over the last 2 years, we have planted fruit trees and made a flower bed in the front yard. Many of my plants in the front, were given to me by my mom, from her garden. I wanted to share my

Japanese Iris that has finally bloomed. The picture truly does not do it justice. It is the most vibrant deep purple I have ever seen in nature.

Another plant I am very proud of is my Japanese Maple tree. Larry Denzil bought this for me last summer and we put it in a nice pot in the front yard. It is such a beautiful green and is just a very beautiful tree.
I know this is a boring post, but I am very proud of my plants and flowers. I did get to attend a pampered chef party last night. I love that pampered chef and I wish I would have known about them 12 years ago. You can have a Pampered Chef bridal shower. How Awesome is that?!?

I'm really impressed you can get things to grow with all the wind. I've been blaming all of our dead plants on the wind (and cold) but maybe I'm just bad at it. Your iris is beautiful. Good job.

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,…
