So, this past weekend was SO MUCH FUN. Let me explain.
Mike had been preping me for a surpise all week and I had no idea what it was going to be. I got home from work on Friday and there was a big present wrapped on the table. Inside the present was a message saying, "prepare yourself for a winter wonderland. Pack your bags, we are going up to a cabin in Mt. Charleston (30 mins away). Our friends (who have the cabin) will join us...etc etc." He included an itinerary that included dinner, watching ELF, sledding and other fun activities.
So, Mike and I and our friends Celina and Aaron (his gpa's cabin) went up to the cabin and had a blast. Here are some pictures of the event. It was SO fun to see snow in Vegas. Who would've thought!
Aaron and Mike playing chess. Aaron won...Mike wasn't too happy about that.
Me and Celina cheering for our husbands and smack talking to eachother during the chess game.
The awesome view from the cabin. So fun!
Sledding was so much fun. The only sled we could find was this old fashioned wood sled. These things, with the metal rails can FLY and they don't take ANY cushion. I think I had like 5 bruises on my bum by the time I was done sledding. We decided to call it a quits BEFORE someone got injured :)
Thanks to my husband for such a fun weekend and thanks to Aaron and Celina for letting us stay at the cabin with us!

The lovely gingerbread house, designed by Mike. This year, he intentionally DIDN'T do a pattern on the roof. We think it looks pretty "modern, sophisticated, and sleek."The lovely Christmas tree! we put ALL our ornaments on the tree, hopefully it doesn't topple over from the weight. The mantle is decorated and the top of our entertainment center.
YEAH for Christmas!
