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.

Ruthie's Birthday Party

Ruthie's birthday is in 2 weeks but I decided to have her party early so we could have a Christmas theme.  Also, she is in surgery today (wednesday) so I wasn't real sure what she was going to feel up to around her birthday.

So I decorated the house

And somehow managed to make the ugliest cakes in a jar you have ever seen.  They were really cute on Pinterest but not when I tried to copy it.

Even Ruthie wasn't quite sure what to think when she saw it.

Santa came!

And the girls blessed our neighbors with carols.

Best of all, we had lots of great friends attend and some even stayed after for some extra special time.
