Happy Birthday Ruby Violet!

Well, I can hardly believe it, but little Ruby is two years old today.  This afternoon, we will be going to a little birthday tea.  It will be very interesting to see how Eli feels, seeing his sister with another pile of presents, only four days after Christmas!!

Well, here we are, almost at the end of another year.  Do you have any special celebrations planned for New Years Eve?  The family who  are over from France will be attending a party at a friend's house, and will be staying overnight.  Me? I will be relaxing with hubby and watching the fireworks display from London on the television.  At midnight, I will raise a glass to you all and wish you a very happy, healthy and peaceful new year.  Let's hope that 2012 will be a good one for all of us.

See you all again in the new year.  Take care until then my friends.

What a lovely header! And super sentiments. Ruby is ever so adorable and photogenic. I want to scoop her up in my arms and give her a cuddle. I'm sure you'll be giving her plenty when you see her later today. I hope Eli is able to understand this is his baby sister's special day. A small gift of his own should go a long way to appease him in the event of any jealousy.

Sounds like the best way to welcome in a new year...with hubby and fireworks on the telly.

Happy Birthday to Ruby! What a cutie!

I wish you peace and happiness as you head into 2012.

Happy Birthday to your precious Ruby. Her name describes her ruby red cheeks. She is so beautiful.

My mom asked me today if I would take her and her friend to the casino for New Year's Eve and I said yes, so that's where I'll be. I hope our money lasts until midnight! I wish you a most blessed New Year, Diane.

Growing before your eyes. What a beauty. And the smile just melts my heart. Happy birthday darling Ruby.

[We have a Dec. 26th birthday - my son - and his brother and sisters always understood that was his birthday, never any hard feelings. So I think her brother probably did great. :)]

We are doing our usual tradition New Years Eve. The whole family dresses up, we make [and eat!] fancy h'ordeurves and count down with Dick Clark & the ball in Times Square [NYC] Let the sparkling apple cider flow! heehee I will definitely be raising my glass to you and yours my friend. Have a wonderful time.

Happy birthday to you, sweet little Ruby Violet! I've been watching you grow for more than a year now. Whenever grandmum posts your picture my heart melts and my love flows. I pray that your future will be bright.

Here's to you, dear Thisisme. Here's to great friends, health, happiness, peace and prosperity.

I need to start calling you the banner queen. You do such an awesome job of impressing us with your amazing banners.
Super duper pictures of Ruby and her curls. I just know you get to hug her enough.
As far as new years goes I plan to sleep right through it. I figure by 10 PM I will be sound asleep. When I first married Linda she kept me out a couple of new years but lately we have stayed home and she may stay awake watching TV but I don't find anything that interesting but hope everyone else has a fun time. Happy New Year to you and your awesome family.

A very happy birthday wish for that beautiful sweet little girl. I don't think I'd put her down if I picked her up!! Just adorable.

New Years Eve will be spent watching movies in bed with a bottle of bubbly and some munchie stuff. If we can keep our eyes open we will ring in the New Year. If not we'll wake up to it..haha. I too will toast you and your family to have a very special and healthy 2012! Hugs my awesome friend.

Children grow so fast. When mine were little we had the sweetest neighbor and when one had a birthday she would always give the other two a little something so they wouldn't feel bad. She never stopped till she passed away. Her name was Miss Mabel Ross, sweet, sweet person. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to your little one. Hugs...Lu

Ruby is just the cutest little thing! Our new year plans are to try and stay up. I should take bets on whether or not we'll make it! Happy New Year!

Ruby is such a darling! What a cutie! I have to say, though, that the top picture just blew my mind! Did you put that together? Rings of Saturn, clocks, new year imagery! Well done!

Sometimes I stay up and watch the fireworks on TV. Then I may just fall asleep and wake up in 2012.

Suzanne said...

Happy Birthday Ruby! She's such a precious little cherub. And she lets you take gorgeous pictures of her. I hope her Birthday Tea went well, and I love your New Year header photo!

I'm with you Thisisme...will just sit back and relax on New Year's eve. There will be fireworks on TV to see. And, I may even come up with a new post-I'm kind of on blog break, but always working on something.

Happy New Year, dear friend! Hugs to you!

Oh, she is just adorable! Love the curly hair. :-)

No NYE plans here. We like staying home and off of the roads. There's some prosecco chilling in the fridge. Now, if we can just stay awake until midnight....

Carol said...
