New Years in Arizona & Random Christmas Pics

My parents took our family to Arizona for New Years. We stayed at a fun hotel in Scottsdale. During our trip we went to Taliesin West (one of Frank Llyod Wright's homes), an African safari, downtown Scottsdale, a Cardinals' game, and SHOPPING! The weather was beautiful and we are looking forward to more trips down South!!

We ate at the Pinnacle Peak Patio our last night in Arizona. Sam bought William a cowboy hat and a pair of six-shooters! He says, "pa-choo pa-choo" when he holds them : ) All he needs now are cowboy boots.

He didn't mind sitting on the horse without putting in $.50, but after GRANDPA let him "giddy up" one time it was all over! We went through a lot of quarters!

Will's favorite part of Arizona was the "Out of Africa" trip we took. He saw lions, zebras, tigers, giraffes, and camels. After hearing Will bark at all the animals we are working on other animals sounds.

This year for Christmas we were able to see our families despite the unpleasant weather. Will had fun opening presents this year and I'm sure next year he will enjoy it even more! Christmas with the Skovsende side (minus Amy and the girls) at the Creighton game.

Will might follow in Grandpa Timmy's footsteps and work for UP. Whoo- Whoo is another sound he likes to make! Thanks for my train set Grampy and Grammy!

Family Christmas Eve picture at Reggie's steakhouse. Will's sucker entertained him for quite some time.
Will didn't know what to think about his sugar cookie : ) Later he tried a chocolate chip cookie!
