Merry Christmas from Fabulous Las Vegas
In a move that most people would find crazy, we opted to hang out for Christmas in Las Vegas. Of course, direct flights from a city near us also helped. ;-)
Both kids have birthdays near December and THE MAN and I were coming up short on great ideas for gifts. Plus, having spent nearly two months reorganizing their rooms for larger desks and making multiple trips to drop items off at Best Friends in Potsdam for them to resell, I was a little down on buying stuff!
So boycotted presents and bought plane tickets. And off we went in search of Christmas lights on palm trees and a delicious Christmas dinner in a Casino.
We stayed at the Hard Rock Casino, although not being my first choice in lodging, the kids did think we were pretty cool.
I do have to thank Julie for the great idea. Last year they went and she posted some cool photos from the Bellagio. So, here is a polar bear for you, Julie!
Of course, it was a bummer pulling into the driveway last night. It was SNOWING.
Woke up to huge snow!!!! Here is a photo of my son taken through our sliding glass door that had snow drifted up to almost the middle!
Hope you had a merry one yourselves!
