Ruby is writing

Ruby wrote her name and then wrote Dad without me helping or saying anything. She just said, "what do those say." I have actually not been pushing her to learn her name, but she has been finding enjoyment in writing letters.

The newest Maddrey child: It's a girl-Lyles

So cute. Susan had a home birth. I am so proud of her and Smith. I originally thought the babies name was Lylef. So for the last 24 hours I have been trying to figure out how to say the name. I was so happy to see her name is actually LYLES with an S. Very feminine and pretty. Lyles was born on February 20, just one day shy of my birthday.

Happy Valentines Day!

Ruby painting some flowers, soon after Moxy came along and bumped her and spilled paint all over her flowers.
Moxy sleeping like a baby, my favorite time to hold him.
The kids are so excited about their valentines day presents from the grandma's and papa.
Moxy loves his hamster, Ruby has to remind him "moxy it's just a toy."

Roller Skating in Bethel

Every Friday night the kids get to roller skate around orange cones in the local elementary gym. It is just like skate world. They have funky music playing in the back ground. Notice Moxy in the background watching. He refuses to skate and instead runs around playing, and climbing this little climbing wall.

Dressed up for the chicken dance.
Little boys helping Ruby not fall. They would take turns holding her hand. Ruby came home saying that she did not get to skate by herself very much.
