Christmas in Vegas

by Lain Ehmann on December 22, 2011

That sounds like a National Lampoon movie starring Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. :) Instead, it’s real life! Here’s the proof:

The kids living life large at the MGM Grand. They had a gorgeous lobby but I wouldn’t recommend staying there. The customer service was the pits.

John and me. I look pregnant. I am not.

Mikki (a ScrapHappy family member!) and me at the Excalibur. We went to the Tournament of Kings and it was FABULOUS. Nothing like eating dinner with no utensils to make you appreciate modern conveniences, like cutlery.

Ben and Cal rockin’ out. Very cute. Do you like Cal’s rain boots? She won’t take them off. No, it’s not raining.

All in all, we are having a blast. I got to see my brother who has just moved to Henderson, and we are enjoying the lights and glitz. I am not much of a drinker, gambler, or carouser — more of an early-night kinda gal — but there is definitely a lot for all to do!

Hope your holiday, wherever you are celebrating, is peaceful and full of joy.

P.S. No podcast this week – sorry! To make it up to you, here’s a fab deal from Ella Publishing:

Take Twelve. I’m really taken with the idea of capturing your year in 12 pics taken on the 12th of each month. This year-long project looks like an incredibly easy way to document your year, and anything that makes your life easier is tops in my book!

    Today I read an article about a woman flying between Boston & Vegas and getting her red velvet cupcake confiscated by TSA. My first thought was that it was Lain heading home, but, thankfully, no.
    Hope you had an uneventful trip and a great holiday.
