This year, we spent Christmas down in Tucson. We had a lot of fun. On Christmas Eve, we went to Mama's Pizza with my Grandparents and Darl and Becky's family. Then we went to my parents home and opened some gifts. On Christmas Day, we had a nice meal with my parents and then went back up to Phoenix so that we could open our gifts here. Here are some of the pictures we took of Christmas this year. For some reason I can not find any pictures of Kristen. Sorry. :(

Well it is our first year at the house and we did not put too many lights up but we think it looks good. John has been excited for Christmas/Santa Claus/Reindeer Hunting season, for a while now. The front of our house is where the kids meet for the bus stop so we will see what the reaction will be in the neighborhood. John swears the AZ Game and Fish Department gave him a hunting tag for this, so apparently it is all legal. I just don't see us getting many steaks or jerky out this one but I guess with enough pepper or BBQ sauce you can eat most anything. I heard Larry was thinking about putting in to go hunting next year. Robin, this is what you have to look forward to. :) John says, "yummy Bambi!"

We have had quite a fun weekend. On Friday, we had Scott come and stay the night along with his friend. (also named Scott) They were on their way to Las Vegas to go and watch U of A basketball. It's weird to see how much Scott has grown. He's like a little college person now. It's cute. :) On Saturday...John and I spent most of the day Christmas baking. John helped make some pies and I did the rest. It was fun. Then Saturday night, we met up with Kristen and Nick at the Christmas lights at the Temple. The lights were so pretty this year. My favorite display is the three wise men out in front of the Temple. After we did the Christmas lights...we went to a place called Thai Basil. This is now Kristen's favorite restaurant and she wants everyone to go now!!!

Last night we went to the ASU vs. U of A football game. ASU lost miserably. It was a sad day. :( It was still a lot of fun being with family. We did however have an obnoxious fan sitting right behind us. He was a U of A fan and he was completely wasted before the game had even started. He had a very low voice and kept screaming, "Don't Celebrate" every time that ASU had the ball. It got so bad that I thought that it would be funny if I yelled out the same thing...so I did and it didn't go over too well...oops!!! The intoxicated man was not in any way amused. Needless to say...I was a little more quiet the rest of the evening. :)
