Christmas 2008

We celebrated Christmas early this year. Bobby and Maribel were going to be with her family in Sedona, and Christina was invited to join Rory's family in El Paso, and since I was scheduled to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, we decided on an early Christmas celebration on the 20th. We invited family and friends, and had a successful party. There was lots of food, and lots to drink! We had a great time!

We had our annual department Christmas party at Holy Cross Hospital. Here I am with our tech Anna, Dr. Duran, and Terry. We were setting up one of the birthing rooms for our potluck. As always, we had tons of food, and left here feeling stuffed. But can't complain, all the food was pretty tasty.

Although we didn't stumble into a vortex (maybe next time) we did see some beautiful landscapes. Here is a view of the Chapel of the Holy Cross from a distance.

Trip to Prescott

Bob and I took a short vacation to the Prescott, Sedona area in northern Arizona. We met with Bob's cousin Ceci, who lives in Prescott and attended the Christmas parade on Saturday Morning, and later the lighting of the Courthouse in the evening. It was a nice, different way to begin the Christmas season. The next day we drove to Jerome and took a train ride through the Verde Canyon. We spent the night in a hotel that was way over 100 years old, pretty creepy, but thankfully, no ghosts were present. The next morning we drove to Sedona, which I had driven through in the past, on our way back from Flagstaff or the Grand Canyon in past years. However, on this trip, I got to see more, and I was blown away at how beautiful it is. We're going to have to plan another trip to spend more time there sometime!
