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.

I was having a creative itch last week so I contacted my partner in crime for a little spontaneous photo shoot.  You see, I have great friends and neighbors who don't mind me calling them up and asking if they are available for an off the wall activity.

We took the girls to a path in our neighborhood, hung a few ornaments, and let them decorate Christmas cookies while I played. 

They had a blast and the crew of workmen digging a pipeline behind us had to be amused by our 8:00 am cookie party.  It's like a donut.  Right?

After the icing, we took a few minutes to play with the sprinkles.  It got really fun when we decided to throw them at the girls.  Yes, Ruthie has green sugar in her hair all day. 

This pic was one of my favorite. :)

 They had a blast and went a little overboard with the icing and sprinkles.  I got some great shots and took care of my itch to be creative (at least for another week or so). 

the long road
