What Happened In Vegas

Just before Christmas, Flint and I were blessed to get some time away with our friends!  Vegas seemed like the perfect child-less getaway!  I LOVE Las Vegas!!!!  There are so many wonderful places to eat, the shopping is fantastic and, oh yes, the people watching is the best in the world!
We stayed at this little shanty!  I could sit and watch the fountains all day long, but don't worry, I didn't!  There were too many other fun things to do.
Our first night in town was spent walking the strip, enjoying the warmer weather and laughing A LOT.  
I am thankful for the Cramers.  Seriously, I can't remember laughing as hard as I did with them!  Such fun friends!
We went to see Frank Caliendo one night.  He is a comedian and completely clean.  I highly recommend him!  He is known for his "dead on" impressions of several famous people and they are HILARIOUS!  His cast of characters includes George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, John Madden, Charles Barkley, Jay Leno, Dr. Phil and many more!  
This was the Christmas display in the Botanical Garden in our hotel.  Simply beautiful! 
How cute is this little guy!

And this.....
A little piece of heaven.
This is the largest chocolate fountain in the world.  
Right next to the sweet shop.  
Yes, the Santa is a cake and I would bet money that he tasted as good as he was handsome because everything I had there was delish!
Our last night out
The view from our room!  
Until next time, Vegas!
We sure did have a wonderful trip with our friends, but nothing made my heart happier than to get back home to this little love!  Oh how I missed her smile, her laugh and her hugs!
Thanks Mom and Dad for the greatest gift.....time away with Flint.  It was much needed and very appreciated!  We love you and are so thankful for your willingness to keep Cilla.  I know she makes lots of memories that she will always have when she is with you!  Thanks for loving on her!

I have never been to Vegas but this post has just made me want to go. I haven't seen Frank Caliendo in person, but he is funny on tv so I am sure he was a riot! I love that he is clean too.

I am so glad that you all had some just Rebekah and Flint time! I am sure Cilla got loved on like crazy while you did too! Haha.

So thankful to God for you and your sweet friendship too! Praying for a great year for you all!
