Girls Weekend!!!!

Last weekend Mom and I went to Mesquite for my cousins baby shower and some QUALITY GIRL TIME!!!! We headed down Saturday morning, but didn't make it to our hotel until like 7:00! We hung out in St. George shopping for a few hours! Then we headed to Mesquite and got checked into our room and headed to a movie! (Australia)Ashley's baby shower was on Sunday. They played games, lots of games, and then she opened her mountain of gifts! After the shower we went to another movie! Marly and Me! It was really cute, a little sad but still really cute.
After the movie we went and ate the Casino. Then headed back to our hotel room where we found a movie on T.V. and just hung out talking and vegging!
Mom snapped this photo of me!So I had to get this one of her!!!! But we put all of our snacks and Diet Coke on her to show you what we were really doing.
Gotta Love a timer!!!! We had to get a picture of the 2 of us together. We kept forgetting to get one when we were out playing so we took this one instead!
We then headed home on Monday!
Thanks Mom for a fun, well needed weekend! LOVE YOU LOTS!
(Thanks Daddy for paying for it!!!)

The Saturday after Christmas was our Christmas party with my mom's siblings and their families! We use to have this party at my mom and dad's but we've gotten so big we've had to have it at a church the last few years!The guys got a mean game of HORSE basketball going!

Then when more people showed up they switched to Elimination!
Sommer holding one of my cousin Dixie's twins! This is what I occupied my night with, these cute lil' babies!
