Odds and Ends

This year was wonderful.  The scale was greater than ever before--friends were invited!  That meant more treats and more presents!

Katy got matching outfits for Eliza and Ruby, super cute and cozy.

These cupcakes from Ashley were AMAZING. I'm still dreaming about the gingerbread cupcake. 

I love the ratio of presents to tree.  It's a little out of control.

New Years Eve
Nieman came over and Mom chaperoned the stake dance.  We had a Weenie Night--hot dogs, mini bagel dogs, and Lil Smokies.  Katy and I stayed up til 12, but Dad and Ruby went to bed.  We enjoyed some Martinellis, Supernatural, and the traditional burning ceremony.

She wants her mom to abstain.

A Surprise
Two friends of ours started dating.  Each other. AND DIDN'T TELL US.  Knowing that we'd be pleased with the news, at Ludichristmas they handed Kyle and me a present:

It's a funny way to announce something.

I almost cried just seeing that first pic of RUby. I miss her so much! (and Danny says he misses you for your poptarts.)

Coach Kyle said...

I can't believe you watched Supernatural without me...

I love every single bit of this post, but most especially the fact that you bothered to take pictures of Supernatural as you were watching it!

How I miss you! I am dying without my daily Ruby fix. I am with Christy about the first pic. So adorable. But next year I can be home for NY's!!!
