Enjoying family from afar!

Ruthanne has not tired of this picture book. She got this for
Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Sondergaard with pictures
of the family! She loves it! The other day she picked it up and opened
it and looked like she was intently reading it. So Paul gave it to her
today and snapped some photos of her enjoying it again! 

This is interesting! 
Who's over there? 

I love to read! 

Thanks Daddy! I like this picture book! 

Does anyone else want to see? 

Bye Uncle Ron and Brian! Time to turn the page! 

Ruthanne loves pictures! 

There's me being held by my family! 

Oh my! There is more! Hurray! 

That's soooo funny! 

Just standing here, reading! 

Look! There's my Grandpa Sondergaard!
She loves seeing pictures of all her family. We walk
her by all the family photos on the wall and she laughs
and smiles and points at them! She says hi!

Many Funny Pictures to Enjoy!

A picture loaded up to go! The Lord provided
this washer and dryer for a wonderful price!
Ruthanne is priceless! 

Standing up with the help of the couch! 

Ruthanne stands (supported) by the couch for quite
awhile! She can't crawl yet, but she is gaining leg
strength. We will see what comes first! 

Ruthanne was having a party with her animals
in her room! 

Aloha! Paul is ready for the Hawaiian cookout
at our church!  

Smiling comes naturally! 

All the Hawaiian decorations will be used for
our Vacation Bible School them of Treasure
Island! So will the shirts we got for the occasion! 

Ruthanne enjoyed the super long straw! Daddy
gave her water from where he was sitting!
How simple! Dr. Russ is enjoying the show in
the background! 

A coconut race! How funny! 

Ruthanne rolls around now and explores all the areas! 

Fast asleep! 

Do I look funny ? 

Daddy thinks I do! 


Mystery Photo! Let us know what you think she
was doing????

That's funny Daddy! 

A new noise - I put my lips together and make a little trumpet
noise! Watchout! I might get you wet! 

Hope you enjoyed all the photos!
Write us an email to let us know some of your
favorite shots or just to let us know how you are! 

A Special Daddy!

Sitting on Daddy's lap is special! I missed a cute
one when she was peering over his arm! 

Paul got this special "Daddy" shirt for
Father's Day! There is plenty of room for
more handprints! Ruthanne had to sacrifice to
make this shirt! She had to give up her favorite
thumb while Mommy painted it and cleaned it!
As soon as we were done, it went into the mouth!
Daddy was worth it though! 

Why look at the camera, when I can look up at my Daddy's smile???

I'm still watching you! 

Father and Daughter time is sweet!

A tribute to our fathers on Father's Day!

Thank you for being in our wedding! Love, Paul

Paul was a father-to-be at Doug and Bethany's wedding! 

Some gifts come in small packages! Ruthanne
has enjoyed Daddy's arms from the start! 

Paul is getting used to being a new daddy!
He makes a fine one! 

Feeding time was a special time! 

Paul made sure his little package was bundled
up carefully for those Wisconsin winters! 

Ruthanne always had a big smile for DAD #1 ! 

These are a little out of the order that I wanted!
Thank you Dad for your faithfulness and giving
me away to a wonderful husband at my wedding!
