Agree, this is the shortest route but December could be interesting. When you get out to NM and are running in the 5000-7500 foot range, wind and weather can quickly become issues, not to mention the downhill run from Flagstaff to the valley. For that time of year I would look at taking 81 to Knoxville, 59 to 20 to 10. The run down 95 (a horrible road) to 10 is much longer. But no matter which way, take your time and enjoy the trip!
