A Busy Day

Yesterday, Savannah's Brownie Troop
had a meeting at the Health Adventure
here in town.  They were earning a special
try it on My Body.  So while she was with her
group, I took my other 4 to the Curious George exhibit.
Boy was it a huge hit.  Here is Ruby all
over the man of the hour.

Here is Ethan, my little man.  If there
are costumes around, you can bet this boy
will put them on.  

The golf ball set up was a big hit with all my kids.
Xander and Larry were hogging all the balls and sending
them down one after the other.

This little contraption was a big hit as well.  Ruby loved
putting the blocks on the conveyer belt as the boys were wheeling
it up and over into a pit.  Look at her hard at

The kids and I had fun emailing photos home.  
Unsure of the surprises that would await us.
Ruby was a bit unsure sitting on the stool,
but she still took a cute photo.
Ethan is pure joy waiting to explode wherever 
he goes.  He grabbed hold of some tubing
and looks like he is yelling yee haw.
Xander and Larry are quite unsure of their
mugshot.  I am sure I can use these pictures
in future dating embarrassments.

After it was all said and done, we headed over to the surgery
center for a quick tour.  Savannah was to have her tonsils
removed friday morning so they wanted to show the kids what
to expect.  Larry of course was a know it all as far as what to
expect.  The poor kid has had more surgeries than birthdays, but we hope to change
that here soon.  Anyways, Savannah was excited to death
to have the procedure done.  The girl loves ice cream
and when the doc said a diet of nothing but
ice cream, she was on board.
Here is my Ruby, modeling her newest costume.
They gave all the kids a cap and gown
along with a goody bag of tubing and a mask.
Very interesting.  When Larry had surgery at 1, he
walked away with his very own Ambu bag.  I am sure
he was the envy of all children everywhere.

Ambu bags are what you see in the movies and on tv shows. When someone can't breathe well on their own, they use it. It has a mask attached to it and they squeeze the bag to send air through the mask. Larry loved his and hugged it like a bear.

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,…
