Madamme Tussauds

Something I have been wanting to do since we moved here is to go to the Wax Museum.  I finally went in December with Alli and Aaron's family when they were in town before flying home.  I was able to leave work early enough to go with them.  We had such a fun time!

Micah and Shaq...Shaq was huge!

Micah and Claire jammin with Stevie Wonder


I had no idea but they have a haunted house in the museum!  It was pretty scary.  


The Venetian still had all of their Christmas stuff going on, which was so fun!  The white person was part of the Christmas "parade."   They also had an ice rink and a live performer singing outside.  The Venetian is my fave!  They are the only ones that decorate for Christmas on the strip.  

Robbie and Kelli were able to come visit in January (which was so fun!), and we went to the museum with them.  It was just as much fun the second time for me!

Willie and his doppleganger

 It really is a super fun museum, and one of the few less expensive things you can do in Vegas (I don't remember exactly how much, but less than 15 a piece with the locals deal).  We had lots of fun!  

Christmas 2012

So this is a little late...but we had a great Christmas!  We went to St. George to spend the night and visit Willie's parents before they headed up to Alpine.  They took us to the live Nativity at the Tuachan, which was so much fun!  We were unprepared for how chilly it was in St. George at night, and Jamie and Bill had to bundle us up.  We sure are getting used to the warm Vegas weather!     

Later that week my family all came to my parents' house in Mesquite (which is only 1 1/2 hours from nice!!), and we had the best time.  I am always so happy when we all get together!

  We play our own version of a White Elephant game every year.  My parents get the gifts, and there is always a theme.  This year it was pretty ornaments that are hand painted from the inside of the glass.  

For my Mom's birthday this year we went geocaching, had a campfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for lunch, then went home and Aaron cooked us the most delicious dinner ever.      


I loved being able to spend time with my family.  As always I was sad to go when the time came, but we had a great time!
