There are several funny things about this photo. First of all, uncle Joe is the one of the manliest men I have ever met. Yet, Rubie somehow finds a way to trap him in her world of pink. He will drink tea, talk on Barbie phones, and I have even seen him with a dolly in his hands. Here they are "playing" Candyland (for obvious reasons, I use the term "playing" loosely).

Side note: My mother is the biggest Candyland cheater of the world. She only uses the cards with double colored squares in order to speed the game along. (pure genius)

Rubie has been drawn to uncle Joe since she came home to live with us at the age of 4 months. She has even been known to rip a book out of her daddy's hands to hand it to uncle Joe to read. Her first words to him are usually, "Wanna fight?"

I like to call this next series of photos, "Grown Men With a Pink Ball"

Originally, Rubie was playing with them - but she has the attention span of a...well, a...4 year old.
