Hi. I am just a bit confused, but when you are reading double flats, do you count in the key signature and go down 2 notes, or do you not count the key signature and go down only 1 note? I really am not sure about this, and it would be really helpful if you knew. Thanks.

Accidentals always trump key signatures. So if you see an Ebb in the key of Ab, you would ignore the flat on the E in the key signature, and only play the flat(s) noted by the accidental - in this case your Ebb would sound as a D natural.
