MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! What a fun time of year. We have had such a great time with friends and family. Christmas morning was fun with little Rubes. She had fun opening her presents and especially loved her new dress from Mas. On Christmas Day we drove down to Las Vegas to be with my family, it was fun to hang with Rich and Ester and baby Joseph and Matt and Yoshi. Ruby loves all of her Aunts and Uncles and little cousins. She was so sad when she woke up one morning and we told her that baby Joseph was gone. She started to cry. It was really sad because it made Rich get teary eyed because he won't see Ester and Joseph for 7 months. He has been deployed to Cosovo and will not be home til next December.
