Florida Caverns

One of the fun things about having people come to visit is that we get to see new places too. We took my friend Angie to the Florida Caverns. Ruby loved it. She kept telling people we went into the Earth. It was a fun day trip to someplace new.

A day at the Beach

My dear friend Angie came to visit me in here in The Great State of Alabama. I am so glad she came to see us and hang out for a couple of weeks. It makes me feel like I am back in SLC hanging with all my friends close by. I am so lucky to have such a great friend. Thanks for coming Ang.

Even though it was somewhat chilly out, we headed down to the beach for a little shell gathering and kite flying. It was a beautiful and fun day.

Happy Belated Birthday Clint

Clints birthday was last week, but with everything that we've had going on with Ruby I am just getting around to posting pics. We had some friends over in the evening and had cake and ice cream. Every year since Clint can remember Clints mom has made him a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. So I couldn't let this year pass without making one for him. We had a fun time with our dear friends. Thanks for helping us celebrate.

Ruby had to have surgery today on her eyelids. She develops salazions on her eyes. which is the fancy way to say sty. The difference is that these beauties don't clear up on there own. So what we get is what you see below. She had them removed from all 4 eyelids and 13 were removed. Dr. Callahan said that he was really surprised that there were so many and that it was unusual. We are glad that we finally got this taken care of. Now we don't have to worry about everyone asking Ruby what is wrong with her eyes. And her responding with "My Dad hit me" There is a story behind this. Gotta love what kids say.

Once she was dressed they took us to pre op. That's where they gave her "Princess Juice"... the cute way of saying medication. After that Ruby was feeling pretty good. She was being really silly and enjoying everything.

Walking into post op was hard. To see her knocked out and looking like she had been beat up made both Clint and I want to cry for her. All the nurses and Dr. said she was so sweet and did a wonderful job. We are so protective of our little Ruby....knowing that she is all we have makes us just adore every second we have with her.

Christmas Time

I knowChristmas was forever ago, but I wanted to share with you what Christmas Looked like around our house.

I love making banners for every different Holiday. This is one that I made last year.

These cute little kissing angels remind me of my childhood. They were my moms and I always loved them. Now I get to have them in my house. Love it.

This is the advent calendar that my mom made for me. She is so talented. I love it. The Christmas fairy brought Ruby something every night. It was so fun for all of us.
