Being Sentimental

I was checking for updated blogs and saw that Larry's cousin had updated hers.  I checked it out and her blog sent you to caringbridge.  I thought, "man that sounds familiar."  I was never thinking of little Larry.  I knew we had done a page for Xander to show the progress of his clubbed feet.  Anyways, I found Larry's and got a little teary eyed seeing two of my babies back in their pure and innocent ages.  Back when they did not talk back and loved you no matter what.  If you want to check out the old caring bridge site, go to  And if any of you happen to save emails and find Xander's old site, please send it my way.


One day, you will be so happy you have done this. I had a journal of all the doctor's Travis had seen and all the meds and so on, well it kinda made it back to Travis, but I journaling when he was about 6 and that's sad.....cause we had so much more to go through. A part of you wants to forget all this stuff, but with all history, it is important.
Just life with health problems is so much eaiser now days. Thank Heavens.

Oh, they were such sweeties (and still are!). I love going over Carter and Noah's baby pictures and I get all nostalgic and want to cry.

I searched my email but didn't come up with the website you were looking for.

Wow, YOu all have been through a lot. I'm a wuss as I cried after leaving Rissa in the NICU when she was born for 7 days. Then Hunter was in the hospital for 3 days 2 years ago Labor Day as They think it was Near SID's in other words I have a loving Heavenly Father who prompted me to save my baby as when I went in he was purple and not moving. Only after he got a blessing did we see a slight movement and then rushed to the hospital. 3 days of test and nothing. But, great tirage people who verified he was hardly breathing when we got there.

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,…
