An interesting Christmas for sure....

This month has been a very trying time...
So much work, but we are glad to have it.

The saddest news: We lost our good friend Greg, our neighbor Mark, The scrapbook queen Teresa Collins lost her husband, even Joe Cocker the great singer passed away....so many people leaving us behind...rest in peace all of you, we will see you on the other side....

Everyone had to work or left Nevada for Christmas so I decided to take my husband out for a massage, he has been working 7 days a week for the last 2 months. He needed some R&R!
I booked us at the Green Valley Resort, we got a room for christmas eve, 50.00 dinner credit, 2 movie tickets and use of the spa all for 130.00!! the massage was 150 with the locals discount.
While charlie got his massage I enjoyed the jacuzzi, and steam rooms. ahhhh so relaxing!

Afterwards I wanted to play some machines and bingo..let's just say I was on one very hot streak and I came home with a nice little bank roll for my check book!

But I had something bad to eat and ended up feeling very ill and we came home at 5 am. I spent christmas day eating toast and laying on the couch all day. I was fine the next day.

December 23rd I was able to have a Vegas day with my friend Tanya..we hit the Bellagio, Aria, Cosmo..we had lunch at Todd English Pub. They changed the bologna sandwich, which is why we go there, that was amazing but we learned the pastrami sliders are to die for! We had a wonderful day exploring our fabulous city!

I got some great gifts:
A garmin vivofit from the hubby and my annual Cashmere sweater, so soft!
Tanya made me a cool scarf and a pin cushion doll from a german figurine head, she is stunning!

Here are some holiday photos, Hope you all had a peaceful holiday.....







The Ice Skating rink at the Cosmo, I am going to try skating next year!

I named her Kasimira, in German it means "commands peace"





Have a wonderful New Year everyone!
