Roberts Reunion

August 6 - 8 was the Roberts family reunion in Ashland, KY.
It was so much fun to see Aunts, Uncles, and loads of
cousins that you just don't get to see everyday.

Here is Patrick with his family.
I see Dawnita is hamming it up for the camera.

Bryce and Austin

Patrick manning the smoker.

Xander literally had one piece of each cake on this
table. I am not sure which one was his favorite.

Uncles Herbie and Calvin shooting the breeze.

A candid shot of Uncle Phil and his newest little

Aunt Linda and her granddaughter Ashley.

A strange shot of my Savannah.

Elizabeth with her wrinkled nose grin.
I seriously wanted to take this smile home
with me.

This game was a huge hit with the kids.
Just an FYI, those balls hurt
if you accidentally get hit.

Denzil trying to sort through a tangled

Dougie's little girl.
His girls were all so adorable.

Benji's little girl Cadence.
She is a very animated and vocal little girl.

Anna's little girl Ashley.
She has the most beautiful eyes. And I love
her pillow case dress.
Esty rocks with unusual and new fashion.

Savannah fell in love with JB's dog. And she and
Sydney became fast friends over the weekend.

Patricia with her older brother Dale.
My kids, especially Ruby, enjoyed hanging out
with Uncle Dale & Aunt Mayme.
I wish we had a picture of the two girls together,
but Ruby and Mayme learned that they are both twins
that weekend. They both have blue eyes,
brown hair, and turn 4 on September 26.

The horn brigade.

Look closely at my little Larry.

He is such a joker.

I love this shot of Ruby & Emalene.
They went everywhere together this weekend.
I just wish Kaya and Bryleigh were here as well.

Nasty little craw dad. Xander tried to
live in Uncle Dale's creek. He found a
cute little frog as well.

Emalene tooting away.

The Roberts kids all grown up.
Wish I had a picture of them as kids for
a comparison.

Alright, this marshmallow game was one of
the funniest things I have seen in a long time.
You have to have a really big mouth and no gag reflex
whatsoever to win.
Faith rocked this game.
Here are pictures of Larry Denzil.
I think he shoved 7 or 8 in his mouth before
no one could understand him.

Uncle Phil, err Conway Way Twitty serenading
Aunt Linda there in front.
He is actually a pretty good singer.
Uncle Phil that is.

The fiddlers were my kids favorite part.

There is nothing like listening to some good
bluegrass music on a cool summer evening.

Until Next Year... Hi Yo Silver

I'd heard Uncle Phil's serenade!) Glad you guys had a good time.

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,…
