It’s their first Christmas without parents, as they can’t go to Utah until the weekend because of their job schedules. It’s also their first Christmas as parents. Tomorrow is a pretty big deal for my brother-in-law and his little family, so they have invited us to spend Christmas with them.
We originally told them we’d likely have the same work schedule as Andrew, but that we’d let them know. Now we’re trying not to be disappointed that we still (STILL!) don’t have a job, because we are really excited to spend Christmas with them. With gas prices the lowest they’ve been since we moved to California, this should be our least painful trip to Vegas!
We’re keeping it very low-key, and it’ll be a fast trip: out this morning, home on Friday. But I think it will be nice to spend the holiday with such fun people.
This is my third trip to Vegas. I’m taking bets as to whether I’ll get to see the Bellagio Fountains this time.
Regardless of what happens in Vegas, this is already a great day — it’s 8 am and Boy Blue is still asleep! I am dressed and fed, I have done the dishes and am almost done packing! We’ll hit the road as soon as he is awake!
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
