My Goodness, It's Cold!

Yes, it does get cold here in the Phoenix area. There have been freeze warnings all week. We've got the lemon tree all strung with Christmas lights and a frost blanket on top ... and we're hoping for the best with our ficus trees (which are tall and a pain to cover, uncover, cover, uncover).

The above picture is of a frozen fountain in Verrado. Just wanted to provide proof that it is cold here, too!

Though, I'm so glad I don't live elsewhere. I've been watching the sub-zero temps in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Not some place I'd want to be right now.

The Book Slide

At long last, Christian has discovered he likes slides! So much, in fact, that he's created his very own indoor slide using a large, hardcover book. I'm not too sure how he figured out that leaning the book up against the couch would produce such a wonder.

But his Papa and Auntie are both engineers ... so this kind of thinking runs in the family! :)
