We're going over to my mom's house for dinner tonight. I'm excited for ham and all the traditional fixings. Tomorrow we are going to Adam's uncles house for another awesome dinner, I'm sure. The next day we're going to Adam's mom's house for a fantastic Ukrainian meal - vareniki, borscht, piroshki, etc. All DELICIOUS, I might add.
Can't wait to spend time with family and just enjoy time together. Ally is so excited to open presents. It's so heartwarming to see the twinkle in her eye when she thinks about ripping open those gifts! I'm very proud of her too, she hasn't tried to open any of her gifts under the tree yet. She has peeked into her stocking a couple times though. She is wearing the Hannah Montana underwear we put in there. I had to give in a little. ;) Tonight Adam will put together the Disney Princess talking kitchen we got for her. Can't wait to see the look on her face in the morning when she sees that in her bedroom.
Ah, to be a kid again. Maybe next year at this time we'll have another Musatov running (well, they wouldn't be running yet) around. I can hope, can't I?
To the two people that read my blog, may your holidays be special and your hearts be full!

At a work function the other day, I was the lucky winner of an overnight hotel stay in the Twin Cities. Tomorrow our plan is to go see the Christmas display at Macy's downtown, and then stay in the hotel overnight. Should be fun. Ally and Adam can swim, I can watch from the sidelines. You think I'm putting a swimsuit on? Heck no!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Stay warm.

There was a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast at Ally's school (www.northernvoices.org) yesterday. Great food, good company, and of course the kids sang a Thanksgiving song. It was so cute, I wish I had pictures, but I forgot my camera. Ally didn't sing, but she did nervously lift up her shirt. It's cute now when she's 3. Now if she does that when she's 16, we'll have problems.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I know I'm thankful for all my friends and family.
Gobble, gobble :)

At the bar, waiting to fly out of MSP (yes, at the bar already)
We rented a Mustang convertible - great car, but not so easy to fit 4 huge suitcases and 4 people in. Oh well, we only had to drive to the hotel. I lost all feeling in my legs before we arrived.
We stayed at The Riviera
A strip shot
Vanessa & my mom
Me and my mom (hey, could my cheeks look any chubbier?)
Sisters (Missy, Vanessa, and Anna)
Missy and I
Vanessa and I
Driving to Hoover Dam, at Hoover Dam, and finally - a stop at In-n-Out Burger (notice how burnt I am - I don't think my skin could be any more sensitive)
The show "Crazy Girls" was at our hotel, so we had to pose next to the naked butts in front of the hotel
Our last night, we went Downtown Vegas and had a beer at this nightclub in the Golden Nugget - it was called Golddiggers
The lightshow on Fremont Street - AWESOME! This one was to the song "American Pie" by Don McLean

Yep, you guessed it - I'm going to Vegas! Me, my mom, and my sister's Missy and Vanessa are leaving tomorrow at 2:00, and we'll arrive in Vegas at 4:00 PM. I'm so excited. I've been to Vegas before, but probably 5-6 years ago. I'm interested in seeing how things have changed. It truly is the adult Disneyland. We're going to the Tournament of Kings show at the Excalibur. Everytime I think about it, I'm reminded of that scene from Cable Guy where Matthew Broderick and Jim Carrey go to Medieval Times. Hilarious!
My mom was generous enough to take us on this trip, she is the BEST! We'll make some memories, I'm sure. Missy and Vanessa have never been to Vegas, and I know they'll have an absolute blast. Watch out, here we come!!! I'll post pics when we return.

April needs to make a call
