Well, I guess one more post....
We were at the Phoenix Airport on time this morning to catch our flight to Seattle, but didn't make the flight. Apparently Alaska Airlines was so back-logged with luggage from cancelled flights that they weren't accepting any pets arriving in Seattle. It was taking them several hours to process pets that were coming in and that was too long to leave them out in the winter weather on the tarmac, hence a pet embargo in Seattle. And since we didn't have a back-up plan for Elli, we had to re-schedule for the next available time - Christmas morning! So, we're back in Yuma now, making arrangements for Elli to be kenneled while we're gone and trying to figure out how we're going to fill the huge void of things to do in Yuma over the next couple days!! I guess we'll always remember the first (and probably last) time we tried to fly over the holidays!

Visit with Santa

It's a good thing we're not paying for our Santa visits because once again, the kids were terrified! Gracie has been talking about seeing Santa all week. She wanted to sit on his lap tell him that she's been a good girl and that she wants a pink princess dress, but as soon as she saw him she looked like a deer in headlights! :) And Emmett, he just tried to get away! This was the best picture they took (we were at the bowling alley on Post).
