But enough about that... here's a Warner Christmas 2010 review:
Ruby carefully decorating her very own Christmas tree! She is very precise about making everything as fancy as possible.
She has loved laying next to it to snuggle. She also plugs or unplugs her lights about 5 times a day.

Behold, the ornament wreath in all her glory!
My favorite Christmas project (that I actually completed)
It was time consuming, super glittery mess, I burned my fingers on the glue gun so many times (what, am I twelve?) but it was all worth it in the end. Nothing like some Christmas bedazzle to hang on the door.

Ruby's first snowman! Christmas Eve 2010
Ruby giving Snowman hugs and "marrying him"
Nick took the architecture route and built a snow archway. Don't worry, the ladder and blankets still there. Frozen to the archway. Looks real classy. :)

Ruby in her snuggly Christmas Eve Pajamas and Elmo slippers with Aunt Mattie, who has the grown up footie jammies too! :)
Ruby playing with the Disney Princess Tea Set Aunt Lexie gave her. As she was opening it, she kept yelling progressively louder, "yes...Yes...YEs...YES!!!"
Busy making sure everyone's hot chocolate is poured just right
Christmas morning when Ruby woke up, she immediately asked, "Is Santa here? I want him to hold me." She was super disappointed to hear that he came while she was sleeping and that he wouldn't be able to hold her this year.
Ruby's vacuum from Santa
Santa's ultimate gift (that she had specifically asked him for): a Cinderella dress! (Please excuse me in the picture. This is the only semi-good shot I got of her and the dress! :) ) Notice the copious amounts of chapstick on Ruby's face. She has to be fancy at all times.
Christmas night we went to dinner at some friends' house and she found their Santa apron and hat. She was in heaven.
Being Santa can be a very serious thing, you know.
Christmas may be over, but Ruby is still obsessed with the Christmas story and loves being Mary and wrapping her baby (Jesus) up in swaddling clothes and lying him in the manger (our shower). Then she proceeds to go throughout the house to gather gifts that the wise men can bring to Baby Jesus.
