Happy Holidays!

From

Sedona Arizona

Sedona Santa

Right now it is still dark and the sun won't peak it's head out until 8 AM when it rises over the white capped Red Rocks above Schnebly in the east. About 1 hour and 15 minutes from now.  But the sun is already shining in memory as I recall yesterday.  

We got a special visit from Santa on Christmas morning!  What a treat. Tristan's uncle, Ryan, got him this outfit and we had no idea Santa was coming! Imagine our suprise when we opened the door!  

Sheri Sperry & Tristan

We expected Tristan to play with the wrapping paper but he actually paid attention to his gifts.  He loves books. I suspect we will be visiting Barnes & Noble a lot!

As for our White Christmas....it snowed until 3 PM on Xmas Day. The sun struggled to make an appearance but did so only for a few seconds here and there.  

We got over 6.5 inches of snow!

Flagstaff, described as one of the snowiest incorporated cities (wikipedia) got 10.4 inches of snow. The previous record was 4 inches.  Flagstaff averages around 100 inches a year historically as per wikipedia. Flagstaff is 45 minutes north and 3000 feet higher than Sedona.

As of right now, I see the temps dropping a little more before the sun rises.  It will probably get into the teens.  But it is clear today, and the temps will get into the 40's so this snow will politely disappear until next time!

Hi Sheri - I'm glad you got your white Christmas and a special visit from Tristan. We got a about 1/2 inch in the morning and then a monster wind that blew the insert right out of our foe sale sign.

He is so cute in his Santa suit. I was in Flagstaff years ago at the end of April and guess what, it had 8 inches of snow. We had record warm temps on Christmas Day.

Tristan is a beautiful boy! And he looks so smart reading his book already! I guess next we'll see him taking apart a computer and putting it back together 

Christmas is so much more fun when there are children. I can tell by the beautiful photo of the two of you that he brings you enormous joy and I know your heart is full of love for him too!

Because I really do believe that Christmas should be celebrated year round, Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sheri!

P.S. Even though there was snow, I know Tristan warmed your heart!
