The Essence of Ruby

Posted by Picasa

What is She Doing?

If you figure it out please let me know. Maybe trying to get her hair out of her face? Maybe annoyed I'm taking her picture? I really don't have a clue. But the pictures made me laugh and I'm hoping they made you laugh, too.

Sweet Sisters

It is a shame that Ruby has pizza or something on her face in this picture.  It is such an adorable shot of them both.

A Day at the Spa

The weather is warm. The sandals are purchased. Time for the first pedicures of the season.

First, a little soaking and reading

The soaking was followed by a trim and a foot massage.

Some TV time while the lotion soaks in and the other clients got their soak and massage.

Then pretty sparkly nails. Now if I could have a spa day.

In Progress

Blogger has finally added new design templates.  I started playing with them tonight.  I am not done, so please excuse the appearance of the blog for the next several days.  Hopefully, when I am done everyone will still be able to find everything and will like the end result.

Why did it take me so long to figure this out?

Our drive way has just enough slope to it to make playing basketball a pain because the balls are constantly rolling into the street. I've been trying to figure out a way to keep the balls in the driveway without investing in a driveway net. Yesterday several of the kids' riding toys were sitting around and I had that "a-ha" moment. Why did this take me five years?

Rubilicious and Elizabulous!

Sporting new dresses in their own style.

Eliza Claire picked out this outfit last week. If you can't see it consists of a shirt with snowmen on it and pants with butterflies. I think she is a bit seasonally confused. I guess she has good reason since it snow the week prior to these pictures and was near 70 the day this was taken. That is quite a climate change for a week.

A Day in the Life of Eliza Claire

Listening to her sister's ipod

Wearing styling clothes (yeah, don't look at the mess that is my house)

Spending a little time reading in the closet

Yep that's my Eliza Claire. What a fun girl she is. Now if I could just figure out how to slip off to a quiet spot to read myself...

Ruby and Washington DC

Coming home from school today I was listening to the radio and something was said about President Obama.  This sparked a conversation between Ruby and Eliza Claire about SCUBADuck as they know that Molly lives in Washington DC and so does President Obama.  They wanted to know where SCUBADuck was and I reminded them that he had gone home to Molly. At that point Ruby piped up with, "Mommy, is President Obama Molly's dad?"  After I stopped laughing I told her that he was not after all Molly's dad.  Her next question, "So who is Molly's dad?"

I love that there are three things Ruby knows about Washington DC.  1.) SCUBADuck is from there.  2.) Molly who owns SCUBADuck lives there.  3.) President Obama lives there.  So in her world that means all three of those things must be related.

I just love how the three year old mind works.

Snack Bag "Art"

This is getting a bit crazy. This is what I did last week when I had a spare 20 minutes. There are so many other things I could have done with that time. I need to get a life. At least I won't need to do bags again for a while.
