On Saturday, Larry's eldest sister Brysha came in for a visit.  It has been just over 1 year and 1 child ago since we have seen her and her family last.  It was a nice reunion among cousins and siblings.

Here is Bryleigh and Ruby bonding on Larry
Denzil's lap. I am surprised Ruby was willing to share.
She is in the no phase of her life after all.  Just
ask poor Ethan.

Here is Ethan and his new BFF Erylynne (Brysha,
forgive me if I misspell these very unique names).
They came to the conclusion that they are both
4, with brown hair, and names starting with the letter E.
They also share a birthday month.  Erylynne is
just 3 weeks older than Ethan.

Aren't they adorable.  It makes me wish we lived
closer to family.

I just loved the happiness these two shared
with one another.  It was such a pleasure to see.

I am not sure what Ethan is doing here, but he
sure is very happy.

Here is another pair of BFFs.  Ruby and Bryleigh
were getting along so well with one another.

Girl talk anyone?

They followed one another everywhere.

Here is part of the clan enjoying each others company.

Aren't they just adorable?

Ruby and Bryleigh will do anything for pictures.

Here is Nate and Steven playing Apples to Apples.
Another pair of BFFs.

I was all for taking some pictures, but my camera is too big. I wanted something more pocket sized. Perry Blake does have some video on his facebook page from his black friday experience. He and Angie camped out at 11:00 PM.
What a blessing to have family together and spend time together and love each other. We went to DC with our sons and family on Thanksgiving and it was great. We loved every minute we had together.

Wish Noah hadn't gotten sick! Great pics.

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,…
