Back to Blogging

Well, I have taken a very long 4 months off from blogging
and will now have to pay the price.
I have so much catch up to do.
So here goes.....

Yesterday was the kids 1st day of school.
I teased that that was me you heard singing
Hallelujah in WNC.

Ethan starts the 1st grade with Mrs. Howie.
She was Larry's 1st grade teacher 3 years ago.

Xander has a very young teacher named Mr. Higgins.
He is in his last year at BMP as a 3rd grader.
And the big news is Xander wants to
go by Christian at school. He doesn't
yet know how to spell his 1st name, but luckily
it is pasted on his desk.

Larry got the teacher he prayed for all summer,
Mr Griffin. This guy is the coveted 4th grade
teacher because of all his pets (frogs, turtles, snakes, and lizards)
throughout the classroom.

And Miss Savannah got Mrs. Helm for 5th.
She was Teacher of the Year last year so we are very

My Three Stooges

This was not so difficult. Look for another update tomorrow.
Hope you all have had a wonderful Back to School
Experience like we have.

Hey! Wish we could have seen your kids in person, but the pics will have to suffice! Pretty darn cute kids!

So - we both only have one kid at home now - little girls who know they are adorable!? I feel she has lost playmates - and she's the most difiant of my kids - so it will be interesting for me. (: So will you call him Xander at home??? I'm glad Larry got his prayers answered the way he wanted! I got a new computer - so I am not subscribed to your blog yet on this one - I just tried and it did something weird and didn't work . . oh well. (: Cute kids!

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,…
