So This is Christmas...

This year, Christmas was extra fun as Ruby was a lot more aware of what was going on. She knows who 'anta is but not exactly what he does.... We kicked off the holiday with a Christmas Eve dinner with our friends Matt, Danette and Hank (Ruby calls him "Hate" - very punk rock). We met up at our local Indian food restaurant where Dustin and I have been having Christmas Eve dinner since we moved to this house in 2003. It was delicious, Ruby and Hank were hilarious and the company was great. We went home, put on our new pajamas (a tradition I started this year) and went to bed. Well, after "Santa" did some work on Ruby's present while watching "A Very Brady Christmas" (another tradition of ours). In the morning, Ruby opened her stocking and was amazed at all of the things inside: She very much enjoyed ripping the wrapping paper off. She would rip off a little piece, wad it up and throw it in the wastepaper basket. Unwrapping took a while. Later, Ruby enjoyed some reading time with Uncle Harlan: Christmas was fun! Here's our happy girl!
