Merry Christmas!

We had a great Christmas in Tucson with Grandma and Grandpa.  We missed being with Nana and Pops, Hoff’s and Ashley’s, but I know they had fun watching Lyric play with all her new toys! I’m sure Emily and Michael had a great visit from Santa as well–as they are always perfect angels!!

Taylor took a while to warm up to the new toys that Santa brought her.  She said “no” to every new toy that He had set out for her. I had to get things moving by opening lots of her presents for her.

You can see, though, that soon she got into “the spirit” of Christmas…


There was even some full-on singing involved!


By the end of the morning, Taylor was exhausted.  A good breakfast and a looooong nap were in order!


We hope you, too, had a wonderful, happy Christmas!


Moving and shaking (but mostly moving)

It’s been a while since our last update and we wanted to let you know that we are alive and doing well.  We have recently discovered a new place called Dove Mountain in Marana, AZ that is just north of Tucson.  With Craig’s new store in Tucson requiring lots of his attention, we’ve had to spend some time in this area and we really like it.  So much so, that we’ve decided to relocate!  The month of November was spent back and forth between Phoenix and Tucson, but now we are somewhat settled into a rental home in Marana for the next month or so, at that time, I will post again and let you know what our next move is!

 I hope everyone is having a wonderful December.  I wanted to post some pictures.  While not the best snap shots, they are the most recent.  Merry Christmas!
