Houseguests

1)  As Justin always says, “I couldn’t have been more shocked if I woke up with my head sewn to the carpet.”  Justin’s parents made their first trip to Arizona since our wedding.  It was such a wonderful surprise & really great to spend Christmas with them.

2) They braved winter storm “Gemini” & spent the week with us.  The girls had lots of fun showing them around.  The first night, Justin took his Dad to a Phoenix Suns game..they had some really great seats.

3)  We went to Bass Pro Shop to talk to Santa.  This was the first year that the twin’s weren’t scared of him.  And of course Mallorie, too.bass pro carouselbass pro carousel bass pro carousel

4) Then on Christmas Eve we went to Zoo Lights.

5)  Christmas Day I cooked our traditional Christmas dinner & our friend Casey came over to spend the day with us too.

6) The following day we took Grandma to see Frozen..our  2nd time to see it, but it’s so good!

7) We also took them to Greasewood Flat, one of our favorite places to go.greasewood flat

8)  They got to hear Mallorie say “Da-da.”  Her first words.  Now a week later she started saying “Ma-ma”

9)  But the thing they thought was most funny is when she growls.  I owe a big thank you to Justin for teaching her that.

10)  And then at the end of the week they packed up & went home.  About 5 minutes after they left I found Audrie on the couch sobbing.  Big tears & soo sad they left.  Broke.my.heart:-( But so grateful for the experience of them having their Grandparents visit.
