Oh Christmas Parties...

 It all started 10 years ago when our worries were few and we were always in search of a good time; Taylor and I decided to have a Christmas party. After the first year we had so much fun that it became an annual tradition. Over the years we have made so many wonderful memories preparing for the party, enjoying everyone on the BIG night and even the clean up brought us memories! Lots of things have happened since that first year, we went from living down the hall from each other to being married ladies in two different towns. We decided that it was time to close out the tradition on year number 10 and this year the fun tradition came to a end. 
 This year we had the party at my house. I always have so much fun decorating the table. 
 We displayed some invites from the years on the chandelier.

A couple of weeks ago Taylor hosted our Bible study Christmas gathering; each year we do an ornament exchange. This is one of my very favorite times of the season, it is a night full of laughter. This year poor Stacey's ornament got stolen from her about 7 times, she informed us that she might have to resign from the group due to the fact that we were not treating her right. :) I am glad to report thanks to Taylor, Stacey left with one of the ornaments she really wanted and she has withdrawn her resignation.

Yee-Haw Las Vegas

 Last weekend Caroline, Uncle Charles and myself headed to Vegas for the National Rodeo Finals! Caroline had been dreaming of going for years and with just a little talking got her Daddy on board. I tagged along to keep them in line. ;)

 The rodeo was really good. I had only been to little rodeos; let me tell you there is a big difference!! This one was nonstop action from the moment it started. 
 The Cooper Boys (they are famous Cowboys...according to Vegas)

We also celebrated Uncle Charles' 60th and my 30th on our trip. 
We stayed at the Venetian and the Christmas decorations were awesome!!
