Baby Henry

I babysat Henry a couple of times last week. He is such a happy baby and doesn't have separation anxiety yet--still is happy with other people besides Mom holding him!

 Tug was trying to get Henry to play ball with him. Tug also tries to lick his tonsils so I have to keep a close eye on them.
 I can see how mothers don't get a lot done with a baby in the house. He was sound asleep on my lap for quite a while.
Happy boy relaxing!

Experimental Hot Dog Night

We decided to have an "Experimental Hot Dog Night" at Chuck's house. Yes, it was as scary as it sounds. There were some interesting creations coming out of Chuck's kitchen. I have to say I wasn't real adventurous when it came to eating them, but it was fun taking the pictures!

 We have hot dogs wrapped with bacon and deep fried.
 A hot dog wrapped in a tortilla shell with condiments and deep fried -- Chimichanga style!
 Chuck was very proud of his mashed potato and gravy hot dog -- mashed potatos molded around a hot dog, deep fried, then topped with gravy, bacon, and chives.
 I tried my hand at making a corn dog. It wasn't very pretty but this one actually tasted pretty good!
 We have spam musubi and hot dog musubi. Not bad dipped in wasabi.

Brotherly Love

When Willy was still alive he and Tug were best buddies (and brothers). I know Tug really missed him after he died, so it makes me very happy to see Tug and Mack get along so well and hang out together.

Natural Prozac

Blue skies and sunshine. This is what I love the most about Las Vegas!

Girls Weekend!

I had so much fun visiting Martini Molly in September that I went back a couple of weekends ago for a girls weekend. We saw the movie "Lovely Bones" that afternoon and then met up with Molly's friend, Meadow for Thai food. After that we hit the bar and flirted with younger boys, and Molly showed off her cleavage.
We went out to breakfast the next day and Molly tried to arguing with me about paying. Here is my "shut the hell up" look. I had some cash and I wanted to spend it!
On Sunday Molly's friend came over to the house and we watched the Golden Globes together and drank martinis. That night we had pumpkin martinis and chai-tinis. I left on Monday and it was a good thing too because it started snowing and I had forgotten my silk long johns. Can't wait for our next visit...

Book Club

I am involved with the best Book Club ever! We have such a good time. We decided for the month of December to forgo reading a book entirely and just go straight to the party! Evan, our token guy, was kind enough to host the party at his house. A fab dinner was made, beverages were consumed and gifts were opened. Sadly, two of our members were sick and unable to make it. Any of you in the Las Vegas/Henderson area are more than welcome to join us. We are always looking for more members. Good times...

HO HO HOlidays...

I can't believe it's been two months since I last posted. I think I have phased out a bit because you all reading this are probably friends with me on Facebook...redundant huh?  However, a certain someone has been giving me grief about my lack of posting.
So Thanksgiving has come and gone and it was a blast being able to go back to Seattle this year and spend it with family. It was our first holiday back since moving to Las Vegas three years ago. I don't know if we will do it every year, but we will make an effort. Holiday traveling sucks though as we had to divert to Portland on the way down because of fog. We refueled and flew back to Seattle tacking on an extra hour and a half. On the way home Southwest Air didn't transfer our luggage from our stop in San Jose. We went home that night without our bags. Luckily, it wasn't lost and we had the option the next day of picking it up at the airport and getting a travel voucher or having them deliver it within a 6 hour time frame. Since we only live 15 minutes from the airport we chose to pick up our luggage and get the travel voucher.
Last year I bought a fake Christmas tree so I have already put it up and decorated the house. Enjoy the picture of Mack under the tree. That has been his favorite hang-out spot lately.
