And finally... Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas, although celebrated a few weeks back like yours, is finally being posted. I love this one of our Princess Audrey with her new My Little Pony and squinty morning eyes. Thanks for the beautiful Sleeping Beauty dress Mom - she loves it!

Bennett donning his new Batman jammies The Santa hat shows that he was the present passer-outer (at least till he got too anxious to find his own presents and someone else was assigned).

Yes, we know Jeremiah was a bullfrog, but he's very versatile - he can also be a reindeer. Thanks Aunt Debby!

Remember Christmas time?

The Kindergarten classes performed 5 precious songs for the their "Christmas Around the World" concert. Audrey loves school and we're so grateful for her teacher, Ms. Peoples. A good teacher makes all the difference.

I think this is when they sang the Dradle song. It was by far their favorite and sung with a lot of enthusiasm.

My cronology is a little off, but the weekend before Christmas we met Rob's folks over at the Mesa temple to see the lights after they did a session. This was before Audrey wandered off (to see the baby Jesus again) causing us to split in 4 directions to track her down for a scary 10 minutes. Surprisingly, we still let her go when Mom Bailey asked to take her home to Yuma for a few days. She loves to be spoiled by her grandparents and to swim in their pool. The new wardrobe was also fun for her since they snatched her up with no warning and only the clothes on her back.

I feel like the hat needs some explanation. Rob crocheted it a couple years ago. He and Bennett are the only ones who have been excited about wearing it since then. We kind of think he looks like mush mouth from Fat Albert. This is 3 generations of Robert Bennett Baileys pic.
One more of our hike on Bell Rock. Audrey and Bennett were like little mountain goats!

Here's my exhuberant children.

We wandered around Sedona for most of the afternoon. It reminded me a lot of Jackson Hole. It was fun to see all the after Christmas sales as we window shopped.
