Winding through the town on the main highway
Many of the houses look like this...
View of the town as you are driving up the mountain (many of these pictures were taken out of my front windshield so they are not crisp shots)
Homes over-looking the Verde Valley
The large building at the top of the picture is a hotel and the building just below it is the town hall. My guess is that the town hall use to be a school.
The winding highway through Jerome...
I think someone lives in this house, but it looks like it's straight out of a haunted movie to me.
More of the winding highway...

Let's start with the good...
We have these little lizzards running all over the place which is great because they eat the bugs. I don't ever remember seeing so many of them in previous years so I am not sure why they are out in abundance this year.
This one doesn't look as good, but it will take off. These things are pretty resilient.
With this one, you'd never be able to tell...
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!Aiyana made this hat at daycare. She's always so proud of her daycare projects... and so am I.

Here's a picture I took of Clara last week. I thought she looked like a big girl sitting at the table all by herself. Please excuse her ghetto hair-do, she was sick when I took this picture ;o(.
My Christmas Cactus bloomed the other day... woo hoo! The Christmas Cactus plant reminds me of my great grandmother (my grandpa's mom on my mom's side). My mom had a Christmas Cactus of my grandmother's for many years.
Why did I take a picture of shoes, you ask... These shoes were the last item my Nana bought for the girls. She bought them for Aiyana a while back and by the time we got them from Iowa, they were too small for Aiyana to wear so Clara has been wearing them. My grandma was recently diagnosed with Lewy Bodies dementia. We have known for a couple of years that she had dementia, but it was initially diagnosed as Alzheimer's Disease. In any case, my Nana has bought the girls many cute outfits over the last several years, but this pair of shoes remain the last item she bought for my girls and I will cherish them forever. I figured what better way of preserving them than taking a picture of them. Are they not adorable?
