Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

White Dove of the Desert

One of our Christmas traditions is to drive out the the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation (no, not the casino!) to visit the mission, San Xavier. It is called the White Dove of the Desert because of the beautiful white mission (just look at how it contrasts against that magnificent Arizona azure sky!

Going inside, you will see that it is decorated for Christmas...

More of the inside of San Xavier...

I have more photos to post but Blogger is being finicky right now. I will try to finish this post later tonight to show you the delicious fry bread, HANDMADE! and the walk up the rocky hill to a beautiful white cross.

Happy New Year!
