If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

So Fun!

I can be a bit obsessive at times and one thing I am absolutely obsessive about is documenting my children's childhood. I scrapbook, make movies (using imovie and love it), print photobooks of our vacations, am starting to digital scrapbook, and now Blog Book. At the recommendation of my blog friend Jenn (Karleigh Mei's mom), I used Blog2Print to make a book of all my blogs for the last year. One reason I am so excited about how this turned out is that I am usually really bad about not journaling in my scrapbooks. I hate my handwriting and as a lefty I never learned to do all that cute curly writing that comes with being a woman (or so I thought). I just love the fact that printing my blog gave me a real journal of what God has done in our family this year.

So be warned- now that I know I can print my blog and preserve family memories in a such a cool way, I am going to be writing a lot more here.

Today's Side Note:

We are having the coldest winter here in 20 years. The other night I needed to put a hat on Ruthie but I didn't want to mess up her pig tails, so we came up with this.

The kids all got flashlights in their stockings this year. I couldn't find the 2 little ones earlier until I opened my closet to this.

Mmmmmm, I think I may be following in your steps and trying this blog book myself also!!! I have seen them on other blogs and thought about doing it, but yours (and Jenn's when she posted her) look so amazing that I want to try it!! Maybe after we move... so much already going on!!

Love the pictures!

Glad to hear the blog 2 book worked well for you. I also plan on doing this with our blog, what a great keepsake. Thanks for letting us know which place you used. It looked great in the photos. Ruthie is adorable!

Flashlights are always such a fun gift for kids!! :)

I need to print off my first year of blogging, too! Glad to hear you are happy with how they turned out. You should do a post about other digital sights you like, too! :)

Have a blessed week! <><
