Blog Archive - 2008
Here it is, 2:00 a.m., and I can't sleep. I don't know where to begin. 2007 was a string of attacks, and we were so blessed to have Ruby lighting up our lives with smiles through the year. We were hoping that 2008 would just start off with a bang and be a great year with even more Ruby cuteness. We still have some hope, but we're not off to an amazing start.
First, I'll start off with a picture of our peanut...we love her very much!! :)
I'll start with a few pictures. These were all taken at Paul and Lynne's house over the course of the past few months. I love these girls so much!
For anyone who doesn't get to go to Ruby's birthday party today, this is the video that we made for her. It's quite long (~18:00), and it was made with Windows Movie Maker. Although it has its obvious bad points, I'm actually quite impressed with the program. Enjoy!
Yesterday, we celebrated Ruby's first year of life. When trying to decide who to invite to the celebration, we realized that there were literally a couple of hundred people who have touched Ruby's life (and our life!!) in the past year. Since we couldn't fit that many people in Zach and Sarah's house, we tried to limit the number of people as best as we could. The number of people who wanted to celebrate with us was absolutely overwhelming, and we ended up changing the location to the church. We maxed out the bonus room, and many people enjoyed the day with us.
This is video from Christmas that I forgot to put up. Kyle is rocking out on guitar, while Lindsay tries to sing a song that she doesn't know and Kayce Swofford bangs away on the drums. It's pretty good stuff.
I believe that Mike Huckabee is a man in whom we can trust. I do believe that he is trying his best to live a life that is a positive witness for Jesus Christ. I'm impressed with him in many ways, and I'm praying that we see a political miracle this year. God can do great things. We've seen it in our own life, and we've seen it in this country.
Seriously! Only three people live in this house, I swear! However, laundry seems to materialize out of thin air!!! After tonight, I should be completely caught up, aside from the actual clothes that are on the backs of my husband, my daughter, and myself. Just watch, though...tomorrow afternoon, there will twelve loads waiting for me to get started washing, drying, folding, and putting away.
Okay, maybe that's a slight exageration, but it just seems like it never ends.
