Fun With Friends

December is always such a busy month but it's so nice to get together with friends and family.  David got himself an early Christmas present, a new golf cart, so we can visit friends in the neighborhood easier.
Annual Girls Ornament Exchange.  Love these ladies!  Debi, Czarina, Marissa and Lisa.
David and I went to our first Ugly Sweater Party.  OMG!!!! So much fun.  
David was so excited to purchase this throwback Cowboys sweater.
We invited friend over for a playdate.
We had a family get together one weekend.  John, Marnee and Milena came to stay with us.  The girls adore Milena!!!

We went to a cookie decorating party at Monique and Sydney's house.  
I've found a great new Mom's group and these ladies are so sweet and fun!

Thanksgiving

We headed out to Callender Lake to spend Thanksgiving with Nana, Pa and Grams.  I love watching the sunset.
Poor Libby started running fever the next morning.  
Me and Ol' Wal.
David, Nana, Gracie and Grams enjoying the beautiful day.
The girls did a great job collecting pretty fall leaves and acorns and decorating the table.  And Nana did an even better job preparing the Thanksgiving feast.  I don't have a pic but everything was SO good.
My partner in wine. ;)
We had a fun afternoon on the way home stopping in Canton to look for some metal art.  We are going to try to do a faux cactus garden in the backyard.

Vegas Baby

David's company had their End User's Summit in Vegas so thanks to the wonderful Gigi and Pop I was able to sneak away for another adult weekend.  I don't gamble much so I enjoyed this view over our balcony and read a book!
The wedding couple from last weekend, Matt and Kathy, and the amazing Dr. Bitter and his wife Abla.  I beg for a treatment every time I see Dr. Bitter!
That evening we went to a club and for unknown reasons they sent us down a stairwell when we left instead of an elevator. My poor feet needed a break halfway down.
We stayed an extra night after the work event ended to celebrate David Higham's birthday.  We went and watched the show Rock of Ages.  So. Much. Fun.

Sedona

We were invited to Sedona for a friends wedding and since neither of had ever been there we decided to make a long weekend out of it.  Sorry for all of the landscape shots, but it was just so beautiful and these iPhotos don't do it justice. 
We stayed at the L’Auberge de Sedona.  It was just so pretty.  Just walking the grounds of the resort was fun.
We decided to go for a drive the next morning.  We visited a Native American craft fair. 
Views from a hike.
David loved talking to all of the locals and they told us about these vortexes all over the town.  A vortex is concentrated energy rising from the earth.  We hiked to one and were just looking out when a stranger with no shoes on told us to sit back to back and feel the energy flow between us.  We gave each other "the look" but did it.  And I have to say it was actually peaceful.  She also snapped this pic of us.  Thanks stranger!
A Catholic Church was built into the cliff side.
Sciton Studs - Mike, David, and David.
The stunning bride, Kathy and handsome groom, Matt.  We were honored to be at your wedding and wish you a lifetime of happiness.
