Our Night Up

Because Savannah has been having so many seizures this past month, 
her neuro has ordered all new tests and different doctor visits
to try and pin point what is causing her seizures.
Today is her day for a new EEG.  She had one done in August
that came back clean, but has continued to have
seizures.  So last night, Savannah and I stayed up 
till 5AM.  We took a 2 hour nap and are up again
to keep her sleep deprived for this study.
Yay me!
So here Savannah is playing a little monsters
on the playstation 3.  Thanks Jason & Denzil.
You have a bunch of addicts here.

After a few hours of games, she moved on to her webkins.
She had a lot of pets to feed and new games to try out.

Here she is enjoying the cricut.  She played with
this for a good 2 or 3 hours cutting out paper dolls.
We love our cricut.  Thanks Larry Denzil
for such a wonderful gift.

Here is Savannah at 4AM trying
to beat sonic the hedgehog.
By 5AM, neither one of us could keep our eyes
open so wee both slept till 7:30.
Thankfully, Larry got the boys off on the bus.
I was just too zonked.

While Savannah played, I finished up some very old "UFOs."
I started these back in 2006.  I had everything cut out
and matched with a title and put it in an accordion file.
Autumn, you would have been proud.
I was able to glue everything.  Now all I have to do is 
embellish.  Wow, Ruby has a million pictures!

Here is Savannah's scrap book project.
She was having so much fun.  So much so, that she has
decided we need to do this every night.
I wish!

Any embellishment suggestions would
be appreciated.


Embellishments needed? Before I read your post - I saw the pictures of the scrapbook (what does UFO or whatever the letters you said you were working on mean anyway?) and thought to myself - WOW, FANCY!!!! I just did 3 pages at a friends VERY VERY SIMPLE - you would probably be embarrased to have them - but I had a good time doing them and they are done -so I figure that's all that matters to me. So when I read you need embellishments??? You could add some, yes, but NEED, NO - looks great - good for you. Good luck with the kids - you are doing a great job!!!

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,…
