X-mas at the Griffins, Sierra Vista, AZ


Leaving NM on Dec. 19, 2013, Kathy and I traveled to SE Arizona to celebrate X-mas with our extended family, on Kathy’s side. In attendance was the Griffin family – Sasha, Greg and children Ethan and Brooke. Sasha is the sister of Matt Levy, who is the husband of Kathy’s daughter Laina. Laina and Matt were there with their children Kara and Benet. Rounding the group out was Kate Rantilla, Matt and Sasha’s mother. Greg is stationed (for the moment) at Fort Huachuca, AZ.  Sierra Vista is the satellite town to the Army Post. Greg is a Lt. Colonel, charged with maintaining the Internet capabilities of the Army. In Dec. 2011 we celebrated X-mas with them on Oahu, and had a great time.

We had a great time again, and, as was the case on Oahu, it was made especially interesting by the wonderful  activities and scenery that was available to us there. My post of 1/7/14 (“Birds of Christmas”) described those activities. This post is to publish those photos that I just discovered on my other camera. Good times!
