Daddy Daughter Dance 2016

 Ruth reports that she had a wonderful time, danced quite a bit, enjoyed the pink lemonade and is going to save her butterfly kisses ticket in her treasure box. Sounded magical.

Alara 4 Months

Alara is not a baby, she is a tiny little angel. She has been sleeping through the night for over a month now which is SO wonderful. I've never had a baby teach themselves to sleep this early before. She does all the wonderful baby things you would expect too and very little crying. She smiles and giggles, sucks on her hands, hold things like your finger, and tries to roll onto her side. Alara is so petite she feels like a doll, one with rosy cheeks and a rosy disposition to match. People hope they are getting one of these when they sign up for having a baby. She is like a gentle snowflake that floated into our home. We feel blessed to have her in our lives.

4 years of Sugar and Spice

Ruth Anne Hutchins
Four going on wonderful. She loves everything feminine and joyful. Pink and purple, dresses and sparkles, dancing and prancing. She loves to giggle, squeal, color, and play dress up. Ruth is quite adept at teaching her self new skills like buttoning buttons and zipping zippers. Just recently she started to read and, since her cast came off, begun to write. Four is a beautiful spongy age where children just soak up knowledge when it's poured on. We are lucky to have this bright penny in our home. 

What better way to celebrate a January birthday than with Olaf? True to the movie, he started "melting" during the party. We sang Happy Birthday before his head could fall off.
