Christmas Eve with The Chamberlains

Christmas Sunday
Ruby looked so adorable in her Christmas dress and curly hair. She was so happy she finally got to wear it, lucky for her she got to wear it on Christmas Eve too.
After christmas Eve dinner at The Chamberlains, the grandkids put on a program about the birth of Christ. Rachel did such a good job at putting it together and organizing it. She even got Ruby to participate. How cute is she?

The guys were cracking up over these cowboy hats, it was so funny to watch them having so much fun... We had such a great time with everyone and made such great memories.Thanks Doug and Eve for hosting so many people and making it so great. We love you!!!!

Christmas Time

This is the first Christmas in quite a few years that I have not been working non-stop through the Holiday Season. The Chocolate Shop was slways so busy this time of year. I would wake up and go to work and come home and go to sleep and do it all over again and again for about a month. It's been nice this year just having time with my little Rubes and Clint. But I kinda miss making all those yummy treats. So Hilary and I decided to get together and make some of our favorites. We got Erin to help us out, and of course Ruby is always soooo helpful.
Ruby loves being with the girls

This is Ruby helping roll truffles. She thought she was doing such a great job. After a while she realized she could eat the powdered sugar

A weekend with Rich and Ester

We recently took a quick weekend trip to Oakland for "Baby Joses" blessing. It was so much fun to hang with Rich and Ester and their new little guy. Ruby just adored him and wanted to hold him and give him constantly. She couldn't get enough of him. It was so fun to watch her with him. We also made a day trip down to Matt and Yoshi's house in San Jose. We helped them move into their new house while Ruby enjoyed the hot tub. Rich did a great job with the blessing, and it was fun to get to see Ester's family again. Ruby spent the whole day applying her slips (lip gloss), she is such a girl. It was such a great weekend and we definitely needed to get out of town. Thanks Rich and Ester for having us. We love you.

Happy Halloween

Our little Geisha Girl... Halloween was so much fun with Ruby this year. She loved it!!!! I was surprised that she didn't complain about her costume (considering it wasn't a dress). I think the reason she was ok with it was because she got to wear lipstick all night. She caught on quickly to the whole trick-or-treating thing and in no time was pulling us along to the next house. What a doll.

We made another trip to Gardner Village because Ruby kept talking about the witches. This time Clint was able to go with us wich made it that much more fun for Ruby. She even got her face painted.

Today is our Anniversary. It has been 6 years!!!!! I can't believe it, 6 years!!! I just wanted to let you all know how wonderful Clint is. He is the best man I could have hoped for. A few of the many things I absolutely love about Clint are... How sweet he is. He is a very thoughtful person and is genuinely concerned for others. He loves Ruby so much and is always telling her. I love watching how excited they both get when they play together. He adores me and makes me feel special. He is such a good husband. I love you Clint.

Fall is in the Air

This weekend we took ruby to see the Witches at Gardner Village. I was excited to see Ruby's reaction to the Witches. I thought she would love them..... But as you can see she kept her distance. Today all she will talk about is the witches. So I guess she liked it.

Elyse, Ruby and Clara

My cousin Claire and her family came to Salt Lake for conference weekend. It was sooo much fun to have them here, and Ruby just loved having friends around. She still asks about Clara on a daily basis. How cute!!!!

Princess Ruby

Ruby is such a girl. I'm not sure where she gets it from. Her latest obsession is wearing a princess dress everyday. If she can't wear one of those she definately has to have some type of dress on and she would prefer one of her church dresses, because they are fancier. She is such a doll. We just can't get over how cute she is. She has the cutest little personality that always makes us laugh.

The following pictures are all pictures from my wonderful father-in-laws camera. He is great at always documenting everything the family does, which I am so grateful for. Thanks Doug It was soooo much fun when Mama and Papa were up at Mt. Air. We loved being able to see them in just a short 15 min drive up the canyon. This was a rare occasion that so many of us were up there at the same time. What fun memories!

I was so happy to see these pics of Ruby with Mama. She was such a special woman.

Sophia is the closest cousin to Ruby's age. I'm sure they will have lots of fun over the years.
