Today is Ruby's birthday! She is about half my age, but age truly doesn't matter. This girl has more talent in her little pinky then most will know in a life time. Her potential has no limits, and her heart grows more and more each and everyday.

Ruby and I met thru the wonderful world of scrapbooking, and even if we didn't always see eye to eye, we saw something in each other that we didn't want to give up on. Ruby has been a true sense of support for me over the past months. I never knew how strong she was, or how true of a person she was till it was tested. I am so very blessed to call her my friend, and I cherish her everyday.

Enjoy your birthday today girlfriend! Eat lots of Peppermint ice cream!!!

Another celebration I want to acknowledge is that this lady! (no not merideth) , Kate, is now a Vice President in her company!!! I am so proud of her, and so glad she got the promotion she deserved. She is a very hard working lady, and it is nice to see a company realize that in 3 short years. I love that Josh has such a great role model on work ethics. It will help him thru out his life. Congrats my love....We are going to celebrate big on Sunday!!!

Another great celebration was last night as Josh had to wrestle off for his position. If someone wants to challenge you they can. Josh won 5-4 last night against a kid that last year was throwing him around the mat. It was great to see Josh's determination and that the hard work is paying off.

So 4 more days till Christmas.....makes me a little sad sometimes, I look forward to the build up as much as the actual day I think. But Mom is coming in today and can't wait to spend time with her. Dawn ( Kate's mom) comes in tomorrow and then it is a big family Christmas just waiting to happen!
