A little cowgirl in the making! She enjoyed her ride
on the horsie with Grandpa! Ruthanne is testing it
out before Grandpa and Grandma Bird sell it on their
|Ruthanne and I went to Wisconsin for the weekend (without|
Daddy - sad). We had a nice time there!
|We had a little birthday party with some church friends and family!|
|Here's her friend, Malachi, and his mommy, Naomi! |
Ruthanne's mommy has the same name!
|Elayna, Anna, and Alise ready to have a party!|
|Ruthanne has her spoon ready! The spoon|
is just for looks!
|Ready to crawl!|
|Clownin around! The children had some fun games|
to play! Ruthanne was too small, but she enjoyed
sitting and watching them. She was laughing!
|Mrs. Brenda and her daughter - she made the cake for the party!|
|Opening gifts! Ruthanne had many helpers!|
|She shared all of her toys too!|
|Would you like to play with me?|
|Birthday cake! Yummmm!|
|Here is her little cake - with a little less sugar and just her size!|
|All gone everybody! Even the candle (just kidding)! She tried|
to eat the little glass present attached to the plate!
|Party's over! Thankyou Grandma and Grandpa Bird!|
|Lydia was a bridesmaid at Mike and Sarah's |
wedding on Friday, August 17th!
|Here's the special couple! Happily Married! They had a beautiful, |
|A family picture (missing my special husband)! Miss you!|
|Lydia, in the Bible, was a seller of purple! |
Doesn't purple look nice? This is Auntie Lydia's
|This was the front of the church! I like the purple fabric!|
|Lydia and Alise!|
|Ruthanne had her 1st birthday on Monday, August 13th!|
Mommy made her a butterfly cake - gluten free and low on sugar!
|Our favorite fruit on top - peaches!|
|Daddy and Ruthanne celebrating together!|
|Waiting patiently for Daddy to come home to celebrate!|
|A few snapshots of her eating the cake!|
|Or stuffing it into her mouth!!|
|It doesn't all fit! Where there is a will there is a way!|
|"Are you ready for some pictures? Pull up a seat and hold on!|
Mommy put lots of pictures on the blog and four videos on today!"
They don't all fit on the one page so look on the sidebar to previous
|"Are you sure you want to see them?"|
|"Yesterday, August 10th, I learned to crawl! |
See, this is the way you start!"
|"Okay, get ready to look below !" Love,|
Ruthanne, Daddy, and Mommy!
|Something new! Ruthanne has never had a|
whole piece of fruit before! This pear was very
soft, so we tried it! She loved it!
|When she discovered she could eat it, she|
sunk all four teeth in!
|Almost ate the stem, but mommy removed|
that just in time!
|Hi, to all the onlookers!|
|When it got down to the last few bites and the|
core, Mommy snatched it away! She would
have conquered the task if she could have!
