Seriously, she’s only 5 months old…she’s got to be kidding, right?

Look at me!

Really, it's no big deal.


Thanks to a fabulous EarthFare coupon for free pizza dough and fresh mozzarella, Ruby now has a week’s supply of pizza dough stashed in the fridge. Here is her first attempt at rolling out the dough and creating her very own pizza! I must say, I was really impressed with her sauce and cheese talents!

Keep an eye out…I just got some great pizza dough recipes that we’ll be trying out in the next few weeks, including a gluten free one for me. I’ll post the recipes if they’re delicious!

When Brian started cooking dinner tonight Ruby insisted she help him. They both put on their aprons and started chopping. Here’s a pic taken right before they started on the red onion!

Such cuties!

That's baby Ruby on Bri's apron!

And, wow, did Ruby have a good time!! It was wonderful to see them, and to have some extra help for a few days. Brian and I even got to have a date night – our first one in six months!

Ruby and I painted the walls “Ground Paprika” (thanks Dan, for the inspiration!!), and we ordered a new rug from Crate & Barrel! Here are pics of the finished product!
