Happy Birthday Ruby

My girl turned 4! FOUR! I can hardly believe it. She's so grown up. When I asked her what it meant to be 4 she said, "Using the potty," so *I* am excited about that. We had a very small little celebration with just family that Saturday before her big day. Me, being me, though, I had to go a little overboard with the decore. Gramma Rita was here and that was really fun. Good times were had by all! We had dinner at the Spaghetti Factory on Sunday and then on Monday, her actual birthday, she spent most of it with her dad, going ice skating. Then when she got home, I put Lucy to bed and we had ice cream. All in all, it was a fun weekend of celebrating! Now for photos!

One Sunny Day

We had a beautiful day in the middle of the week last week. I bundled up the kiddos and we went to our local park. I realized I hadn't been there since last spring! After being cooped up in the house for two weeks because of pouring rain, it was a relief for us all to get outside!
Unfortunately, the afternoon was marred by a slight injury. Poor Lucy jammed her leg when we went down the slide. She uncharacteristically began crying and wouldn't stand up. I took her into the doctor and they took x-rays to determine that nothing was broken. The conclusion was she must have pulled a muscle or ligament or something. She is now, as of Monday, back to walking but it is still bothering her a little bit. Poor monkey! It broke my heart to see her this way. No more taking her down the slide!

I Am Mommy!

Ruby put on my boots and my work badge and announced, "Look, I'm you! A librarian!"

More on Lucy's Birthday

Lucy's birthday was a long and lengthy celebration. We went to two parties that day and I brought a cake to one and everyone there sang to her and wished her a happy day. She was so confused! But it was lovely having so many people singing and giving her the good ju ju. The following day, Auntie Danielle came by with Uncle Ian and brought cupcakes! It was a little mini celebration but such fun!
Message to Lucy on her birthday: "I love you sweet girl and am so happy to celebrate your first birthday! You are a ray of sunshine on the cloudiest day and nothing will take away from my joy of the day you were born!"
Now for pictures!:
Yummy chocolate cake!
Um..what is going on?
Someone just discovered frosting!!
Eating cake like it's her job.
She likes yellow cake too!
PS: Lucy has had a bit of a cold which is why she looks a little W.C. Fields in these pictures...
