Go Thunder!

Gabe coaches Redden in youth football and while I've been in Utah I've gotten to go to 2 of their games. They won big both times and it is so fun to watch! The first week they got to play at a really nice high school stadium with a turf field and Nani and Popi were also there. Gabe puts a lot of time into coaching and Redden has really improved and does a great job!

Their team is 4-1 and they only lost that game by 1 point. Way to go Gabe and Redden!

Ruby Update

There have been several requests for more pictures of Ruby and since we all know how often Melanie updates her blog the job was left up to me. So here you go:

Her first bath

With her big brothers

Lookin cute!
Even Chevy adores her

That's all folks! We are all enjoying her and she's been really good so far. Melanie is definitely having fun dressing her everyday in cute girly clothes. Hopefully she will actually update her blog and facebook soon!

Ruby's Sweet Ride

Gabe's parents, Tony and Yvonne, came to Utah to welcome their first granddaughter after 17 grandsons. They made good on a promise to bring the first girl home from the hospital in a limousine. I was lucky enough to be part of the fun! A long, white limo picked us up from the house and took us to the hospital where we picked up Melanie, Gabe and Ruby and then it took us all home in style. The boys had a ball and thought it was pretty awesome. Thanks Nani and Popi!

Can you say spoiled?!!

Melanie was induced today and delivered a healthy baby girl! #11 grandchild is here safe and sound. Ruby Yvonne Rojas was born at 2:55 p.m. Utah time, weighed 6 lb. 10 oz. and was just over 19 inches long. Mother and baby seem to be doing great. Here are a few pictures that they sent to me via cell phone.

Isn't she adorable?! I promise more pics when I get to Utah tomorrow. Can't wait to meet her!
