Back to Savannah's birthday

Check out the beautiful cake that only a non
baking dad can do. We celebrated her birthday
4 days late because Larry was out of town. Then I
sprained my ankle so Larry had to do the baking.

No worries though. Savannah is not a high
maintenance child like her brother Xander when it comes
to birthdays.

On Thursday, I took the girls to Cheddar's to celebrate.
Savannah actually wanted to go to Ruby Tuesdays because of the name,
but the nearest one
to us is nearly 40 minutes away.
Can you believe the plate in front of her is from the kids
menu? I told the waitress it was Savannah's birthday
and she hooked us up with all kinds of yumminess.

Savannah opening some gifts.
Ruby is just so thrilled that her big sister is

Yes, I am a bad mom. I did not have enough
paper to cover this box.
No big deal though. Savannah thought it was a trick.

Look at her excitement.

I love this picture because she realizes it was
not a tease. She actually got what she wanted.

I am not sure why Ruby is excited since she
has no clue what a cricut is.
But her cute little reaction is priceless.

Thanks to a really good sale at Hallmark
scrapbook store online, I was able to get Savannah
a Cricut personal. She fell in love with
Aunt Trisha's years ago, but I always felt she was too young.

Happy Birthday Savannah dear.
Scrap to your little hearts content.

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,…
