Ruby on the Banks of the Lafayette River

26 Feb

One day over Christmas Ruby was having a bit of a rough time listening and obeying so I decided to take her outside for a little break. It was a beautiful, mild day and the one-on-one time seemed to help her attitude improve a bit. This little rocky beach is right across from my parents’ house.

Joseph Six Months

26 Feb

Joe’s half-birthday is Christmas Day (convenient, no?). He is such a joy and we are so very grateful for our sweet boy. A few days before this his first tooth popped, and now he has four!

Seven Cousins!

26 Feb

Ruby and Joe had so much fun hanging out with all of their cousins over Christmas at Mama and PopPop’s house. The grown-ups had so much fun watching them.

White House

26 Feb

So I am more than two months behind in my posting of silly pictures. These have been a very busy two months, and with Joe on the move I am finding it harder to get good shots. Rather than dwell on all that I am going to attempt to catch up. Most of these pictures will be unedited or this will never get done. Onward!

Back in December Elise, Rachel, Matt, Ruby, Joe, Noah, and I all went on a White House tour. It was decorated for Christmas and an acapella group was singing carols. All in all a lovely, memorable day.
