Meet Rudy, our elf on the shelf.
Mia named him because he's red like Rudolph, of course!
Tonight is his first night of being mischievous!
Buidling blocks with barbie.
See what else Rudy might get into at night!!
Hope you enjoy Rudy, and the Ramer's elf, Jingles!

Today I'm thankful for the ability to run and be healthy.
Thankful for the delicious meal I was able to share with my family.
We feel so blessed....even though this picture shows minus one, our beautiful family of 5 is the greatest blessing of all.

I'm thankful for the OB staff at Memorial Hospital. They have seen me at my saddest and they have see me at my happiest. A very special thanks to Tammy and Becky. All of the girls up there are absolutely wonderful and do an amazing job.
There are not enough ways to thank them for helping me deliver the most precious gifts I've ever received.

I'm thankful for my speech kids.
They make me love my job. Each child that walks in my door lights up my world. Some of the kids I see come from very poor homes and not much love and compassion. The hugs and praises that the kids receive from me may be the only time they hear and feel that. It saddens me, but also makes me realize how lucky I was growing up to have 2 parents who loved each other and their children. I hope my kids feel the same way.

I'm thankful for this precious little girl--who was born on the 7th, at 7 p.m. and weighed 7 lbs. If she plays any sports where she wears a number, I'm guessing it's going to have to be 7!
She lights up my life.
Full of drama.
And SO full of love.
To my second born...I'm SO VERY thankful for you.

The next 30 days, I want to list different things I'm thankful for....
I'm thankful for my amazing parents. They have taught me more than they will know.
Their love for each other and committment is amazing. Over 35 years of marriage....3 children....7 (almost 8) grandkids. I'd say they've done a wonderful job.
Thanks for being so awesome. Love you mom and dad!

....finishing my paper that is due on Sunday... BUT I am taking a break to post something VERY important!! Dane's FIRST HAIRCUT! :):)
He didn't stand still very well, but Mimi was able to cut off most of the fly-away hairs!
Dane also had his 15 month checkup this week. He weighs 28.6 lbs and is 33 inches tall. He is in the 90%ile for both height and weight! He sleeps from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Doesn't typically like being rocked to sleep--maybe once a week I will have to snuggle (oh darn!)
He LOVES basketballs (or any ball for that matter), loves to eat, and loves anything that Mia does. He watches her like a hawk!
He can sign more, please and all done.
He can say, "mama, dada, dog, up, light, ball, cup, bite/eat, more, uh (not the oh yet), and a lot of babble!
He is still a HUGE mama's boy :)
He likes to climb up on to the couch and sit like a big boy:
And I bet he would have looked just like his big brother.

For an amazing man, doctor, father, husband, uncle, teacher, coworker and friend to many....
My O.B. doctor, who I have a pretty close relationship with, was in a horrible accident last week and has suffered a brain injury along with multiple facial fractures.
He and his beautiful family (amazing wife and 5 daughters) could really use all of the prayers possible.
This man holds a very special place in my heart and doesn't realize the comfort he has brought to me and my family.
If you could, please pray for Dr. Jeffrey VanCuren.....
What an amazing man he is.
