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: Happy Birthday Sam

Sam's birthday was this week and with all that has been going on around here, I haven't planned an official party yet.  That is not to say, however, that we have not been celebrating and partying it up. 

We started with a party at school that was complete with cupcakes and the class birthday limbo.

Then tonight we had cake with the neighbors in the front yard.  When I asked Sam where he wanted to eat dinner on his birthday, he replied, "the front porch."

So we had dinner on the front porch and celebrated at home.  He will have a real party in a few months when things settle down around here. 

These were all taken with my 5D mark ii and 24-70 2.8L.  For the indoor pictures I had my ISO pretty high at 2000 because I forgot my flash (oops).  In the spirit of Sunday Snapshot and trying new things, I ventured away from my favorite Lightroom and edited these in Photoshop.
