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.

Spring Pictures

I have found that the more people I add to this family,


The harder it is to get a good picture of all of us.


Rarely is everyone looking at the camera.

So I settle for a lot of individuals

Where they have the freedom to just be themselves

And I rejoice over the shots where everyone cooperates

No one has a finger in their nose

Or is flashing the web their new big girl undies.

I deleted over 100 pictures to narrow it down to these.  So enjoy.

WOW - sensational pictures of a beautiful, beautiful family!!! You must know a great photographer to get such terrific shots! I know your kids would never put their fingers up their noses so you should tell the hubby to stop that. - Bec
