Last weekend we went to Flagstaff for a little shopping, swimming, dining-out and strolling the downtown. It was a nice little get-away for all of us. I think the kids enjoyed the indoor aquaplex the best. On the way home, we took a detour off 89A to the Kaibab National Forest to cut down a Christmas tree. This is now the third year in a row that we've sent away for the permit. We hoped for Pinyon Pine this year, but ended up with a nice Ponderosa Pine instead. After a brief stop at the Jacob Lake Inn for a bite, the kids and I played in the snow while Brian did all of the hard work.

It's been a busy set for the holidays so far. We've had two work parties (NPS and HS), the pre-school program (which we sent the babysitter with the kids as the HS party was that night), a Christmas cookie party and the annual Santa party at Brian's office. Those are the pictures from above. This year the kids are very excited for the arrival of Santa. They are trying to figure out how he gets down our chimney, since it is only a tube. Well, they have active imaginations and I'm sure they'll figure something out. Hopefully I'll post a picture of our tree-cutting soon. Last weekend was snowed-out. Just one more day until Christmas break...
