Ruthie's Fall Adventures

Sorry I am so slack on the blog updating. Here are a few pics from the last 2 weeks.
Ruthie started preschool this year! She got to decorate a special bucket to keep her things in. She is so grown up!

Ruthie has started taking Ballet. On the first day I told her to go get her ballet things. When I came back into the room everything was neatly laid out on the couch. She is loving ballet.

Ruthie loved going to the dentist for the first time. We got her the book Bernstien Bear's Go To The Dentist to prepare her. She was a great little patient!

Ruthie loved wearing the dress Aunt Julia got her!

Hapy New Year!


One other family joined us for New Year's Eve. We had an early countdown with hats, blow horns, confetti, and a small dance party.

The girls had a little Sparkling Grape Juice to celebrate.

Christmas in NC

We had a wonderful Christmas in NC with the Guthrie family. It was fun to be spoiled by aunts, uncles, Grandma, and Paw- Paw and to play with the cousins.

Ruthie was very excited about the Cinderella doll Santa brought her in her stocking.

The kids table

We are not quite sure why, but every holiday meal my mom puts canned cranberries and bread and butter pickles on the table. No one eats them. :)

We took the train to the Discovery Place. It is a hands on science museum for kids. This is Uncle Chad with Griggs, Kent, and Ruthie.
