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.

This week was her second lesson. She may look serious in these but don't mistake it for sadness. She is just concentrating on the instructions of her coach. It looks like I better get a pair of boots and get used to the smell of a barn.

I am pretty sure that the River Walk combined with a few rides and some ice skating was a hit! Sorry Chuck E Cheese but you lose!
Sam had an adventure all his own too. He has now crossed 48 inches which dramatically increased his potential for fun. Trent had to conquer the upside down roller coaster with him.
A great time was had by all. I guess the real test of my success won't come for another year, but I am thinking I gained another convert to travel.

It is very cold here (40 degrees!) so we stayed inside for her birthday pics. Okay I know the rest of you are experiencing much colder temperatures, but for us in Houston, this is a really cold winter. We haven't hit 80 degrees in at least 2 weeks. :)
Some sweet friends brought Ruthie ice cream for her special day. As a family, we took a trip to San Antonio to celebrate. Pictures from that to come soon.
