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.

Some Early Christmasing

One of the advantages of having a mom who is graduating the week before Christmas is that family comes in town who let you open some early Christmas presents.

So I have to tell you about this next group of pictures.  My sister-in-law, Kelley, is a total hoot.  She gave Ruthie a princess dress that Ruthie would not wear so Kelley tried to motivate her by wearing it herself.

She is a nut which is one of the reasons I love her so much.  Lucky for The Weather Channel, she is coming back next weekend for all the festivities.  I bet she will be the one who starts the singing or the snow ball fight.  She is just that much fun.

When Kelley's idea didn't work, my niece put another one on and that did the trick.  Ruthie wanted to do whatever cousin Madeline was doing.

I love this last photo.  This is my brother Mark with Sam (Samuel Mark) playing Wii Rockband.  Of all my relatives, Sam reminds me of Mark the most.

I have been terrible about leaving comments lately. So, Congratulations on winning the snow - crazy fun !!! We are so jealous here in Alabama.

And congratulations for graduating !
I am not sure how you did all your school, work and mommy/wife jobs, but I am sure impressed.

Merry Christmas !
