Catching up

It has been a week since we got home from Vegas, and I feel like I am STILL catching up on everything!  Granted, I haven’t tried very hard to catch up, which I attribute to a severe case of I’m tireditis. 

I have a ton of blogs to visit – sorry I have not been making the rounds!  Today I am avoiding the internet as much as possible because my husband and I have not watched Lost yet and I don’t want to see any spoilers!!!  We are going to watch tonight! 

Back to Vegas, we had a great time.  We went with 2 other couples who live in our neighborhood.  Mickey and I stayed at the Encore hotel, which is part of the Wynn.  We had lots of fun and can’t wait to go back again.  We saw one show – Le Reve, and it was amazing (although like Lost I was confused by the plot so I didn’t try to think about it too much). 

In the week since we have been back:

1) We have caught up on sleep.


2) We’ve gone to a parade (the Junior Ski to Sea parade, Hannah “marched” but she was pretty tired out by the time she got to us (which was toward the beginning!)

3) We have gone to a t-ball game (if you haven’t watched 3 & 4 year olds play t-ball you are missing out!).

4) I got bangs!


5) We painted toes (these are Hannah’s). 


6) Eli got a shiner


A side about Eli  - he is just talking more and more (finally!).  I feel like we hear new words every day!

And he even “tells” us how hold he is!


Look forward to catching up with the rest of you very soon!

Your bangs are very becoming! Keep them!

Love the shot of the kids slumped and sleeping.

Adore the last one of EASY RIDER!

Sherrie said...

Sounds like you all have been very busy and having lots of fun! Love the bangs...very nice look for you.

We noticed that Micah's vocabulary jumped up several notches once he hit the big TWO as well. It' amazing what adding the title "two-year-old" does for their vocabulary. Way to go Eli!

Life with Kaishon said...

A great smorgasbord of photos. I wish Jacob and Hannah could be on a t-ball team together. That would be fun to watch! Love the parade photos. Too cute.

liz said...

It's a great feeling when things start to get back to normal. I love your bangs, and the photo of Hannah sleeping with her own head in her lap had me cracking up! that looks like it hurts.

I still can't believe we live so close and haven't met yet IRL... let's plan to do so for my next shopping trip across the border!

Cassie said...

Helene said...

Glad you're back...Vegas is a blast, isn't it???

You are such a genius to put a huge basket of toys between the kids in the car! I'm so gonna start doing that!!

You're totally rockin the bangs!!! You look great...and of course the kids are adorable, as always!

BTW, for some reason, now with bangs, you look a lot like Lisa you ever get that?

awards 4 u,

Jennifer said...

Sounds like you had a great time!

I know it seems like Wild Man comes out with new words every day. He's nearly four and just the other day he counted to ten when we were playing tag! AMAZING since we haven't even worked on it yet! ;D

BTW-I LOVE watching preschoolers play Tball. It is the cutest funniest thing EVER!

Zeemaid said...

Your husband looks familiar....don't know from where or why...weird.
