More December Shenanigans

Last year my family and I took a weekend to head up north to Sedona for the Red Rock Fantasy Christmas lights display, and then on to Flagstaff to play in the snow.
You can read about it here.
It was hoot.
And since we're no dummies, if it was a hoot once we figured it'd be a hoot twice. 
Enter: the second annual Sedona Red Rock Fantasy/snowy Flagstaff weekend extravaganza.

Before our trip we were concerned there would be no snow to play in...after all, there was no snow on the ground.
Anywhere.
Which would have defeated the purpose of going to Flagstaff, since the goal was to play in the snow.
You can see why this would give us a complex right?
 But since we have impeccable timing, the weekend we went up was the first snow storm of the season. In fact, we probably got more weather than we bargained for.
 It rained the whole way up to Sedona from Phoenix.
 In fact, some of the Christmas lights weren't on at the Red Rock Fantasy because of the rain.
Although, question: aren't Christmas lights waterproof? At the very least, weatherproof?
Whatevs.
At least we got to enjoy the lights that were on. And there were some good ones this year!
Before we went to the lights display my mom and I bought these totally ridiculous cool hats.
Cause it was cold.
And we needed hats to keep our head warm.
It was just an added bonus that they were animal hats.
Mine's an owl.
And my mom's, while it looks like a pig, it's actually a unicorn.
So we called it the horny pig.
Cause unicorns have a horn, but it looks like a pig.
See what we did there?
Personally, I loved the hats.
Nate didn't.
But I was warm...and an owl...so I didn't give a hoot.
See what I did there?
Owl?...hoot?

He always knows how to ruin a good picture.

After we finished the Christmas lights we went to the restaurant/bar that's at the end of the route, the same one we went to last year.
My sister, mom, and me
 We had appetizers, drinks, some of us played pool, and some of us taught my mom how to play pool.
None of which included me. 
I don't know how to play pool and I wasn't really in a learning mood.
But if you weren't there, I feel bad for you. Because you missed out on the biggest air ball of all time. Mom tried to hit one and WHOOSH! Nothin' but air!!
We laughed.
Pretty dang hard.
  We also laughed pretty dang hard at this picture.
Talk about creepers.

The next morning we packed up and headed to Flagstaff for the day for some serious snow play. 
The snow was gorgeous!
Both the snow and the play were pretty serious.
Oh and the cold. The cold was pretty dang serious too.
We were fuh-ree-zing!
We inflated our tubes, the same ones we used last year, and hit the hill!!

Needless to say, we were pretty wet. 
You know you're from Arizona when you don't own snow pants and instead go play in the snow in your jeans. I'll have to make a mental note for next time...
Cause there will definitely be a next time.
