Pictures from AZ

28 Dec

Whoops. It’s not Thursday anymore. Haha!

I know it’s not my day technically… but since we’re all on break technically… no one has been really blogging… which is totally understandable. But I haven’t much to do right now besides listen to the Les Mis soundtrack (Saw it today. Which by the way, if you have not seen it yet and do/don’t have 3 hours to kill, DEFINITELY WORTH YOUR TIME! There’s just so many good things about it! If you go, make sure you go to the bathroom before it starts and bring some Kleenex.) and surf the internet, and obsess over Eddie Redmayne, and of course… blog!

Here’s a few pictures from my trip:

Hope everyone had some nice time with their families this Christmas season! I sure did. And I think this is the first year where I’ve REALLY started to understand that Christmas is more than those superficial values that society seems to care about, like the trees, presents, and shopping. It was the first year that I really didn’t have anything I really wanted except to be with family on Christmas.

Merry Belated Christmas! And Happy Early New Year!

    Ahh I love your post!! I live in Gilbert and laughed at the if you go to Gilbert you better read this!. Did you get a chance to go to Tombstone? Such a fun place to go, get to see a re-enactment of the OK Corral shooting. Fun place to spend the afternoon.
    I saw Les Mis on Christmas day and Oh I have to agree 200% it is a must see best 3 hours of my Christmas which is my birthday as well. I was so impressed with Russel Crowe! Did you know that it was filmed with them singing? They didnt like do the acting then go to the studio and sing the parts. So if they had to do a retake it was a re-sing. I would love to see Hugh Jackman on Broadway.
    Anyway, I love your pictures looks like you had a great time. If you are here in the Spring dont forget to go to the Renessance Fair.

    Wow! You sure had fun. And yes; you have your priorities right. Very often, superficial features take the place of values that really matter.
    Family matters!

    Looks like you had a lot of fun! My family and I got to feed a giraffe at a zoo once. It surprised me how strong they were! I’ve never been to Arizona, but I’ve always dreamed of living there. Sometimes, I’ll tell me wife, “Let’s just pack up and move to Arizona.”

    You look like you had a great time. It’s always good to find the deeper meaning of things, especially Christmas. Our family always complains about how Christmas has become so commercialized. It’s good to know someone else agrees!

    I loved your pictures of Arizona [I live here too] and love ‘the Sonoran desert museum’ in Tucson. The ‘Hummer’ gets high bid among your shots… for me. LOL Quite the troop you have here, friends… this is one of the real treasures we all can say we have to enjoy- and do not let anything tarnish what you have between all of you. Best wishes and much success to all of you.
