the lights at the mesa temple were stunning and it was actually cold. we wore our coats! the following day we hiked up camelback mountain. it was a fun hike. i strapped turner onto this backpack type thing and he liked it, mostly because he slept most of the way. it was kind of an intense hike though, but the view of all of phoenix was awesome! plus there were tons of people hiking that day.
overall we had a great christmas! we even got to talk to colton for a bit. he sounded so happy and his english was a little funny. he will be home in june, so soon.
