A little of this and a little of that....

It's been a few weeks, but here is what we have been up to! A little out of order, but all you want to see if the pictures....right!?!

Merry Christmas! I love that we get to have a 10 foot tree, I have always wanted a big, tall tree. Here she is in all her glory!

Last weekend was the Kiemel/Rueber Christmas. It is one full house with 10 adults and 9 kids! Courtney enjoyed reading to Elle!

Grandma Maureen and Papa Coach spoiled the kids as always!

What did Elle get you over-sized Pottery Barn chair! (among a heap of clothing!) She loves her chair.

She reads in her chair, doodles in her chair...

and has figured out how to tip it over and use it as a trampoline!

Elle must have made the "nice" list, because St. Nick made a stop at our house.

She enjoyed opening her presents.

And had both partially opened at one time. Poor girl didn't know what hit her first thing in the morning...tired girlie.

She L.O.V.E.S. her Magna-Doodle.

Elle enjoys "helping" around the house. How warm and cozy on a cold winter day, fresh warm clothes straight from the dryer...well I guess still in the dryer!

She will soon learn that it is easier to fold the laundry once it is out of the dryer. Funny girl!

Tis the season for an advent calendar. Elle L.O.V.E.S. to open all of the doors looking for treats. We have to only put them in on the day otherwise she would have eaten them ALL already! Two M&M's in a door and she thinks it is heaven!!!

Random cheese face I found on the camera....seriously TOO CUTE!

O.M.G. All I can say is what a goof!!!

Look at my new trick mom! Dad taught me how to ride Paisley!!!

**Take another look...David is holding onto to Paisley so she can't get away. Poor dog!**

Our first snow. It was so pretty! Elle and I headed out early to shovel the driveway before Daddy got home from work!

What is this stuff mom???

She is always willing to pitch in and help!

Elle, could you please put the snow on the side of the driveway????

She didn't last long shoveling, and was off on an adventure...

but didn't get to far! Darn marshmallow man suit and snow, and a little girl can't get away too fast! :)

And then to try and get back up with all of that stuff on!

**Insert a grunting sound, followed by a scream for help!**

She was bound and determined to get to the back yard.

We made it and then went for a winter swing!

Before everyone got the sidewalk shoveled, we took a winter walk down the street. Elle loved it and didn't want to get out of the sled!

Hope you enjoyed the update. Next one will be a Christmas marathon!

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
The Ruebers
