Christmas in AZ

 AJ, AZ   High 67  Low 43

We don't often have presents to open on Christmas morning but Jim got a couple of surprises under the tree.

He has always wanted a 1939 Chevy so I got him the only one we could afford. Rather fitting for 2020.


Todd and Michaela also sent him a present from Santa. This one needs a little explanation. Jim is really easy going most of the time but he can get picky about the strangest things. One of these is a water bottle. We reuse our plastic water bottles and he found one that he likes the feel of it. It fits into his hand just perfectly. The only problem is, the only place we can find it is in Montana. We didn't think to stock up when we were there this summer (we did remember the fudgsicles however). So Todd sent him six empty bottles. And the cool looking fish. A perfect gift.

 He also got to open up his mud flaps but to be honest, he knew they were coming.

 Our neighbor, Wendy, took some fantastic pictures of our outdoor decorations and I want to share them with you.


 Our beautiful, creative daughter-in-law. She knows how to celebrate.

Wishing all our dear friends and family a Merry Christmas.
