It's Almost Christmas For The AZ Reddicks!

Merry Christmas everybody! We're waiting a few more days to celebrate as a family, but here's some fun pics of the girl celebrating with the Fallins, our surrogate family!

Abby in our front yard getting ready to go to the Fallin family Christmas dinner! Her Christmas collection includes a gorgeous little number from Aunt Tuzzi!

Trying waaay to hard to smile big for the camera. It almost looks like she's in pain. Here's one of her enjoying Reid and Taya's toys they got for Christmas.

Doesn't everybody hang out by the pool on a warm, sunny Christmas day?

It turns out Santa might be a little scary! She wasn't actually crying, but that big fat bottom lip says it all.

Reid hung in there like a brave little champ. Maybe next year Abigail will enjoy this tortuous tradition!

We went for a stroll through the Winterhaven neighborhood here in Tucson. Normal, modest houses with extraordinary participation in Christmas lights/decorations. It was a cold night requiring blankets and schnapps in the hot cocoa!
Bobby Fallin and his dad manning the hot chocolate/schnapps bar:

All bundled up ready to see some lights

Hanging out with the Fallins to watch some football

In AZ, the roses and citrus trees never get the memo that it's actually December and are in full bloom. Abby loves to take a stroll through the garden and smell every rose she can reach. Sometimes she brings a few in so we can smell them inside too.

All I want for Christmas is a Labrador. Santa must've gotten confused and left us 5! Our holidays have been anything but lonely with this crew keeping us and Maggie company.

Abby In TX

Enjoying the playground in College Station (Whoop!) after a burger at the Chicken Oil. Yum!

The phrase, "You're ugly and yo mama dresses you funny" comes to mind...except for the ugly part.
Uncle Eric reading Abby her night, night story....Nemo!

Um, no comment.

Uncle Eric leading Abby to the playground.

Grams had to turn her head!


I see a face of approval.

Trying out the log roll.

Abby immediately headed for the stairs and wanted more of the slide!
Here we go!

Love the static electricity.

And back for more....

Not sure who was having more fun!

"Why isn't my swing moving?"

"Oh, thank you very much!"

Uncle Eric showing Abby how to play some tunes!
Abby tickling the ivories on her own!

"So, Tuzzi, thanks for keeping Maggie and dropping her off. How was your day at work?"
She's such a grown-up! She begged Tuzzi for all of her patches and then proceeded to tell her a story in 1 yr old speak.
