Santa Rocks!!!

I am pretty sure she doesn't really get how cool

all the loot is...but she sure looks like she gets it!!! Oh My!!!

The best part of this Christmas was Dee and I were in bed

by midnight on Christmas Eve

and the kids didn't get up until 7:30 am Christmas morning

I guess there is a first time for everything!

Maybe next year I can hope for 9:00 am

Kaden had a pretty great Christmas!

He is turning into a pretty big boy, he got an ipod

this year and a cool new red bike.

Posted by PicasaAustin asked for a weight bench for Christmas
this year so he can "bulk up" for football next year!
He got some cool video games and stuff too.
We have been blessed with a great family!!!

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!!!!

I had to slip in a pic of Hallie's latest new look...a little

shadow from her big bow, but isn't she stinkin' cute????

Below is our yearly neighborhood Christmas party!

It is one of my favorite AZ traditions since we have moved here.

Breakfast is served at the park and there is

this secret AZ recipe for Buttermilk syrup that is to die for.

Then Santa arrives usually in a convertible, yes in December!

It is usually just comfortable sweatshirt weather. LOVE IT!!!

look it's mr. do not take my picture!

It's starting to be "normal" to me????

It's starting to be normal to me to have Thanksgiving,
Christmas shopping and decorating, and planting flowers all in the same weekend.
It was the anniversary of our sixth year here
in Arizona last week, and now I can say this is a lot
more normal to me than shoveling snow would be.
These months here with the weather fabulous
are what make the summers worth it.
This is heaven!!
Posted by PicasaI really have to say I enjoy Christmas shopping a lot more here.
I have never really enjoyed cold temps and big heavy coats,
even worse being cold. I still yearn for familiar
even though it is getting more familiar here.
I miss my family and my amazing friends.
But, I have been truly blessed to have made wonderful
friends here also. I am grateful for all of you!!!
So, I guess what I am saying is..............
( my hubby will say...I've known that for a long time)
