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.

It All Started With a TuTu and Some Good Intentions

One of Ruthie's friends had a tutu party today. I got the bright idea to sponge roll her hair for the event and so I called my wonderfully girly friend Paige and yep she had sponge rollers. Ruthie was so tough she didn't even complain about sleeping in the darn things.

I left them in until 30 minutes before the party because I know how poorly Ruthie's hair holds curls. I was shocked when I took them out and it was THIS CURLY!

I tried to separate the curls and quickly created an Afro

After a hairdryer, some help from my neighbor Amy, and much combing, I decided to settle for a poodle and headed to the party

My friend Elita made outfits for the kids to have their pictures taken in. Is that a bow or what!?! I never considered that a black background might not be good for Ruthie since her hair is black. Now I know. :)

My curly girly was exhausted and slept all the way home at 12:30 and is still napping now at 3:30. I guess maybe she didn't sleep so well in those sponge rollers after all!

Thanks for being such a trooper Ruthie and to all my friends who helped make this such a memorable day!
