Why I Love Photography

Photography helps me remember Rubie showing her bracelet to her aunt Jennifer (who lives in Illinois)...

Photography helps me capture Rubie singing on her Hannah Catanna microphone...

Most of all, photography allowed me to capture this little gem. Nice earrings, Ramon...

3 Years Old

Yesterday was Rubie's 3rd birthday. Her party isn't until next week, but she enjoyed the day...

Grandma Pam came out just for Rubie's birthday...

Rubie and mommy making pink cupcakes with pink frosting...

I promise this didn't happen until after the cupcakes were finished...

Singing happy birthday, and blowing out the candles...



Opening presents...

It's funny, her cupcake face is the same as her popsicle face...


Hugging Henry...

Is this a hug or a choke?...

Happy Birthday, baby girl...

New Wagon

Rubie's grandma and grandpa got her a new wagon for Christmas...

Ramon Strikes Again

Why, yes, those are Tinkerbell fairy wing pancakes. He is too good - I can't compete...
So, Christmas was everything I thought it would be. Rubie enjoyed every minute of it. Of course, the best present was the $1.99 "lipstick" that Santa put in Rubie's stocking...

Everyone knows that Santa loves to put panties in stockings - I know I got them in my stocking when I was growing up...

Here is Rubie reading a book about manners to her Yo Gabba Gabba characters (that Santa brought her). I hope she takes some notes...

Santa's Cookies

Rubie helped Daddy make some cookies for Santa...

I think she is getting Gingerbread cookies and chocolate chip cookies mixed up. I don't think Santa wants to eat this...

After some help, the cookies had to be tasted...

Santa, we are ready for you...

Christmas Eve







Wedding?

The other day, Rubie told us that she needs to go to her wedding. We asked for clarification, and she said that she is getting married. Don't know to who (or is it whom, Jennifer?) - but apparently she is practicing...

Why Christmas is so Great This Year...

Here is proof that I am not exaggerating when talking about Rubie's BIG personality...

Chatter Box

Rubie and I were having a conversation, strike that, she was talking, I was listening to her ramble on. It went something like this:
Lookatthatdogmommyitisabigdogthereisalittlefatdogitwillbitemethat'snotniceAngelinasaidshe'snotmyfriendIsaidthat'snotokayyouhurtmyfeelingsshe'snotnicedoyouthinkthatdogwillbitemysippycup?Plutowon'tbitemysippycup.Hewagshistailwhenheishappy. This goes on for hours at a time...





This is how I know when she is finished taking pictures...

Goofy's Birthday

I love the mornings when Rubie plays by herself. Saturday morning, she created a birthday party for Goofy...

Complete with presents (that she wrapped herself)...

And rides (notice the wrapping paper tube that she is using to hold her safely on the ride)...

Preschool Performance

On Thursday, Rubie's preschool had a singing performance. They asked us to have her wear a red or green shirt. She had on a cute red shirt, but when I arrived for the performance, she was wearing her "oops" clothes (she made a mess at lunch). I predicted that she wouldn't sing a word and keep her fingers in her mouth. I was almost right, she never sang a word, but at least stood there nicely...

Here is the preschool director getting all of the kids in line...

Then the singing began. I love how they are all in sync...

Here are some pictures from after the performance...
