Trick or Trunk 2010

This year, Halloween snuck up on the Roberts' family.
We were totally ill prepared.
We bought pumpkins and forgot to carve them.
I was working on costumes the very day of
trick or trunk and did not finish.
And we did not get a group shot of our kids.
Not to mention, we failed to take a picture of Ms. Ruby!

Savannah is there in the red. She chose a costume that
did not look like much of a costume to me.
I think she was just trying to be a cute little
Hannah Montana or something.

Little Larry went as FBI. I searched high and low for an
affordable suit for him. After 11 stores,
I got one at Belk 40% off.

Ethan was mistaken for a power ranger, but he actually
went as a ninja. At least that is what he said he was.

My twilight obsessed boy went as a vampire.
He wanted me to make him a cape, but it had to have the red lining.
His daddy wanted to buy one of those muscle padded
shirts and rip some jeans for Xander to go as Jacob.

A Family Fun magazine recipe.
Spinach hummus with some ghoulish creatures
in a cracker cemetery. Larry had me whip this up
for the party even though neither of us like hummus.
We did learn that our kids love it.

I promise next year we will be so much more prepared.

I'm not so good at Halloween either. If Gregg's mom doesn't make it, the kids are pretty much on their own. I love the FBI agent costume. Here, a couple of kids went as missionaries, kind of the same look.
PS. My kids love hummus too.

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,…
