Whew what a whirlwind of activities in December for my husband and me!! After Thanksgiving with our youngest daughter, her husband, and Little Man, we had a couple of weeks to get ready for the rest of our holidays.
Our oldest daughter and her family came in so my son-in-law could go for a business trip to Atlanta. We then went to our niece's wedding in Nashville for the weekend before Christmas. Luckily, our daughter's family was able to be there, too. We celebrated Christmas with them and with my husband's family in Middle TN. We were home one day before we flew to our other daughter's home in AZ. We've never been away from home on Christmas Day before. We felt a little guilty for being away from our parents, but they were happy we could go. We hadn't seen little Emory since August. They change so quickly when they are 2!!!
The first picture is of Emory and me decorating the cupcakes for Jesus's birthday party that we celebrated with friends of our daughter, son-in-law, and Emory's.
Here are Emory and her little friends in their party hats!!
Emory flying in her new fairy costume that her aunt and uncle sent to her!!!
On Sunday we went to Sedona!!! What beautiful scenery!!! I'm so glad we went on this little excursion. This is a photo of the Holy Chapel that we visited on our tour. It is built into the red rocks of this gorgeous place. We got to go into the chapel, as well.
Here is the view from inside the chapel!!!
I told you I would post the other two silhouettes, along with the one I've already posted earlier, that I made for my daughters and their husbands of their children for Christmas.
This is Emory in her Little Orphan Annie dress amongst some of her favorite things (she has the word giggle in wooden letters in her playroom window).
Next is Little Man underneath our forsythia bushes when he was here at Thanksgiving. He had fun exploring out in our back yard and the field beyond.
And, for those of you who haven't seen this one, it is of my other three grands, showing off a cake they had just made.
I am wishing all of you the happiest, healthiest, safest, 2010 ever!!!
