Brownie Camp out

Alright.  Our little Brownie Troop finally had their first camp out.  Courtney and I took the easy way out.  Friday night was girl scout night with the Asheville Tourists,  the Colorado Rockies Farm Team.  After the game, the girls were able to camp out on the field.  It was actually a lot of fun.  Savannah came out of her shell and was such a social butterfly.

Here is Savannah with Miss NC 2008.  Miss NC was very popular 
with all the little girls in the stands.  And can I just say, she walked
around the entire stadium wearing 3 inch heels.  YIKES!

Here are my boys with Miss NC.  Doesn't Larry look psyched.  
Xander just wanted to know if that Tiara was real diamonds.

Ok, Ruby Isabella is such a clown.  She continually made faces for a 
young couple sitting across from us.  They thought she was
an adorable little thing.  

Here are just some of my little Brownie Troop.  They were
hooting and hollering with all the songs.

Here is Ethan with his balloon dog.  There was a man there making balloon animals.
He was asking for tips and donations before he would make one.  
What a gimmick.  I know these balloons do not cost that much.  
He made $20 alone with our little Brownie Troop.  At least Ethan is 
very excited.  This pet last almost 1 hour before popping in the restroom.

Let the camp out begin.  Here is Savannah under the score board.

Here is Savannah in our tent.  We were the first ones to get our 
tent up.  Not bad for someone who has never put one together by herself.

Here is Savannah and Carly, her best friend.  They had so much energy.

Savannah resting after many somersaults.  

Well, I survived the camp out.  Just barely.  The field lights weren't turned off till midnight.  And I have a habit of waking up at 5:30AM.  So you can imagine how much sleep I did not get.  Savannah had so much fun and that is truly all that matters.  
Saturday afternoon, we spent teaching Xander how to ride his bike.  He did really well for being such a fraidy cat.

Here is Xander and Larry Denzil working on his bike.  My curiousity is can't you Roberts'
work on anything without that tongue sticking out?  Xander was so proud to
fix his rear tire.  Something his big brother has not been able to do.

Here is Ruby driving Larry Denzil's car.  Look out teenage years!

What is wrong with this picture?  Would it be little Larry 
pushing Larry Denzil on the swing?  That is not our yard by the way.  
That is our neighbor Ronnie's field.  He has swings on the trees for 
his "babies" to play on.  
He's doing it!  Xander pedaled a few feet by himself till he realized 
Larry Denzil was no longer holding on.

Here he is going in for a crash landing into the yard.

Now daddy has him...

Now Daddy does not....

Oh, I loved being in the Brownies! What a great mom you are to help out Savannah's troop (and to camp out!).

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,…
