Vegas! girls trip

I just realized that this trip actually took place before Thanksgiving. But no worries. Fun is fun is fun, right? Doesn't really matter when the fun happens. 

For our 2013 girls trip we met in Las Vegas for some sights, shopping (more like window shopping), and shows. 

We enjoyed a delicious buffet!

Walked through lots of amazing hotels and took in all the fantastic decor and displays.

Hung out in bathrooms now and then (gotta charge up somewhere).

Had fun at a couple of shows, including Love (the Cirque du Soleil Beatles tribute/production),
the Jabawockeez--so entertaining ...

and Donny and Marie--woo hoo;)!

Then finished off the weekend with a quick visit to Grandma Porter's home in Southern Utah. What could be better?!!

Had such a great time together!! Looking forward to the next girls weekend:-).

wrestling season

I'm really not going to spend very long on this post. Pretty sure I mentioned last year that our family is kinda into wrestling. Not sure exactly how it happened, nor do I completely understand why we continue (It's a lot of time in sweaty gyms), but mid October through mid January you can find wrestling singlets--the cute little outfits they wear;)--in and out of our washing machine.

 I think it's safe to say that Brooks does not love wrestling, but he's a good sport and continues to work at it anyway.

Ditto for Mae, out there with a good attitude despite the fact that she'd rather be at dance lessons:)!

I think she does sort of secretly like it though--the shirt says it all ...

Porter and James are also great sports, and quite the little wrestlers--although not so little these days. 
And of course, we can't forget the ultimate wrestling grandma!! This lady is pretty hard core;).
