Christmas Rundown

We had a wonderful week-long vacation in Phoenix
for Christmas. It was packed with tons of fun activities
and it was great to catch up with some of our friends and
family. I picked out some of the highlights of our trip to
share here. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year!!!

Thank goodness for the DVD player, but sometimes
Connor just lets the headphones do their own thing.
Whatever works, I guess! Somehow he could still
hear his movie:)

On the way home we stopped at Wupatki National
Monument to check out the Indian ruins.

Keepin' my baby warm:)

So cute:) Worn out from a long week.

Chris and I in Monument Valley, halfway
home, and feeling pretty good about conquering a
crazy, fun week with a ten hour drive on either end
and two laughing, crying, hungry, thirsty, whining,
poopy, silly, precious, not-so-precious, messy, loud,
wiggly, tired, happy, sad, funny, wonderful, BEAUTIFUL
children in the back seat! HAPPY 2010!!!!
