A quick weekend getaway

I've been feeling a little stir crazy lately! So, for Shane's birthday, I surprised him with a weekend away in Tahoe. We are so lucky to have his step-mom, who lives in Kings Beach! She was away for the weekend... and opened up her beautiful home to us! Thank you! Then, my mother-in-law came to stay Friday and Saturday night with our 5! Yipee!!! What a nice break! I actually slept through the night... without being woken up by a child needing something! What an amazing feeling that is! The weather was beautiful! We enjoyed the beauty of the snow... and went and visited the temple grounds of the Reno Temple. It was a quick 48 hours... but such a nice break! Happy Birthday, honey!

Play dates are the best!

Meg has a friend, that is 7 months older than her, that has Down Syndrome, too. She loves for her to come over. They have a great time together. They had a dance party. Made cookies, played Red Rover, and Memory. The other kids had a great time playing with Sarah, too!

Only 7 months apart... but Meg is such a little peanut!

Some additional Christmas fun

We spent Christmas Eve with my family. We had a great dinner at my parents home. All my siblings and their spouses' and kids were able to join us. We played a great game and had a great time hanging out as a family.

Mike and Pompy
Maddie and her Great Grandma

Me and Santa

I saw Mommy kissing Santa!

Isn't she the cutest?

Yep... she's posing in her Santa hat! Such a funny kid! Merry Christmas from Meg!
All she asked for this year was "Dog and a Bone" which was a Red Rover game and lots of iCarly stuff... which she got!
