Visiting Phoenix

We spent the last week and a half in Phoenix, Arizona visiting my sister and her family. We had a great time! The weather was absolutely gorgeous...forget this cold weather in West Virginia! It was heaven being able to walk around in short sleeve shirts and not to have to bundle Ruby up in layers and layers. Plus, Ruby had a blast playing with another little baby her age. Ruby and Ivy crawled around together, followed each other every where and they loved it. And Lilly positively doted on Ruby. Our girl had such a great time with her cousins.

We went to the Mesa Temple to see the Christmas lights and Ruby was awed by the spectacle...the music, lights and all the people around her fascinated her. I have to admit, it was a little odd seeing palm trees done up with Christmas lights.

We also took a trip to the zoo and Ruby had a great time seeing the animals. She especially loved an exhibit called Monkey Village. We were able to walk into the enclosure and tiny monkeys roam around free, so Ruby was able to see some very close. But the thing she loved the most was the merry-go-round.

And for you Morgantownians, we saw Joe and Aubry Luma for a few minutes. They're doing great and Brinn is as cute as ever. She enjoyed playing the piano with Ruby and Lilly.

And of course we just had a great time hanging out, laughing at all the antics of such cute little girls, playing games, eating way too much food and just having fun. But then there was Christmas....
