I'm Ruby

This year was Ruby's first year to attend Vacation Bible School at our church. I teach the 4 and 5 year olds so she was in my class. She has had such a good time watching the puppets,singing the songs and coloring.
 Tonight she was sitting next to a little boy and coloring.She looked over at him,touched him lightly on the arm and then waved and said, as she pointed at herself, "Hey there I'm Ruby." I could hardly keep from crying. I keep hearing her in my mind,"Hey there I'm Ruby."  Precious words.

Our Christmas Road Trip

Wow,I didn't know it had been so long since I blogged! My husband was working out of town for November and December so I was pretty busy taking care of my family on my own.Of course we just had to get a stomach flu for Thanksgiving !
 My two college boys came home for Christmas break and one of them brought his girlfriend to meet us.We all love her and hope she gets to come visit again soon.

Grady and Brooke

Brooke and my silly girls

We had such a good time decorating our tree .Ruby kept saying,"Party,party!"
It was so nice to have Aaron home for Christmas.We all missed his piano playing.

Ruby's big sister Meagan gave her a guitar for Christmas.She loves it!

Well here are a ton of pictures from our Christmas road trip to Alabama. My husband was working in Alabama so we went there to visit him.

Ruby slept for a lot of the road trip.

Breakfast at IHOP on Christmas morning.
Charlie Brown Christmas tree in my husband's hotel room.

We went to see a movie Christmas evening.

This is how it looked when we came out of the theater! We had no idea there were several tornadoes in the area during the movie!
Heavy rains and high winds when we got back to the rooms.

The day after Christmas we took the kids to see the ocean in Gulf Shores,Alabama. The younger children had never been to the ocean. It was pretty chilly that day but we had an awesome time.
Ruby's first time to the ocean.
