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.

Sunday Snapshot- Birthday Getaway

Ni Hao Y'all

I love Jack more and more everyday. That child is like an onion and everyday I get to peel back a new layer to see a little more of his personality and spirit and I love what I am seeing. His birthday was last week and he surprised us by telling us that he didn't want a party this year, but just wanted to go to a hotel as a family and play. As much as I love planning parties for my kids, I have to admit that I was so relieved at this idea. It has been a crazy few months so some time away together to relax in exchange of invitations, decorations, food, thank you notes, etc. was fine with me! Here are a few pictures of our time away at the La Torreta resort on Lake Conroe

The Birthday Boy!

I had to ask them to show me their muscles to get them to stop moving and all look at me at the same time.

Fun!! I think it's great when kids realize that not every celebration has to be a big party. Family time is super special too :)
