Ruby writes her name

Yesterday afternoon I was in the kitchen busily prepping 30 baked potatoes for our church small group and in comes Ruby saying, "Mommy, Mommy, I wrote my name!" My 1st thoughts were, "Oh no, where?" and then, "She doesn't know how to do that" but then clear as day on her medium of choice, the MagnaDoodle, I see this. Later on she gets some help from Daddy on proper letter formation and does this. Way to go, Ruby! We're soooo proud of you!.............. I have to admit that I was pretty impressed that she self-taught herself how to write her name. Could the Harvard t-shirt be foreshadowing her future? Hee Hee........................By the way, she has a skeeter bite on her chin that she's been picking at.

Ms. Sandra's new pad!

We are so excited that Ms. Sandra will soon be moving to a new apartment! Sorry that for some reason the vertical pics uploaded horizontally. The emergency pull cords will light up that yellow light outside of the apartment. The front patio is large enough for a small table and chairs and she can do whatever she wants with her flower bed. Also, there is transportation provided to the grocery store, library, dr.'s appts, and to the senior citizen center. Yea, Ms. Sandra!! We are so happy for you! Congratulations!

Ruby Goes to the Dentist

Ruby went to the dentist for the 1st time yesterday and she was such a big girl!! She sat still to get her X-rays taken and to get her teeth cleaned and, best of all, no cavities! Afterwards she picked out the purple bug antennas from the treasure chest. As we were leaving Ruby said to me, "I had fun, mom. When do I get to come back?" Way to go, Ruby!!!

My buddy, James!!

Here is what I believe is James's Reeves blog debut and I'm sure this will be the first of many. James and Trip are 3 weeks apart and are becoming the best of buds. They decided to take a rest on the rug after small group tonight and then when they realized I was taking their picture, stood up and posed. so precious!!

Washin' the van

While I was inside getting the house cleaned up for small group tonight, Ruby and Rex went out to enjoy the great weather and washed the van. Thank you Rexy and Ruby for my beautiful, clean van! Sometimes it still feels funny that I have a minivan. I used to say that I would NEVER drive a van. Now I love and embrace my minivan drivin' life!

Vroom Vroom!!

I've noticed Trip playing like such a boy the past couple of days. He's been pushing cars around saying "vroom vroom." I guess this is just something that comes naturally by being a boy because I've never seen Ruby play like this nor have I taught him how to play with cars. Too cute!

Another Rainy Day

I feel a little like Noah trapped on the ark. Will it EVER stop raining? We've hung out at home again today and Ruby asked me to take her picture with Trip which turned out to be pretty cute. Look at my little cherubs!!

Labor Day

Here are a few pics from Labor Day. We had a great visit with YaYa and D-Daddy and enjoyed just hanging out at the house. Rex magnadoodled a portrait of Ruby which, after this photo, turned out to be somewhat realistic.
