Visions of Sugar Plums

My Brother Alan and his wife Julie doubled with us on a great date to see the Moscow Ballet perform in the Nutcracker. It was a perfectly lovely night that started at our favorite Italian restaurant in town. And ended at the casino. I am not exactly sure why one of the world's premier ballet companies chose to perform at such a high class joint like the Hard Rock casino, but hey, it meant cheap tickets for us. The only price we had to pay was reeking of smoke and being blocked by the people walking through the isles with their tubs of popcorn, and wine in plastic champagne glasses. Classy. When it was all said and done, we got one man with a killer mullet to take our picture:
I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful time of year and taking a moment to enjoy the finer things in life like the ballet at Hard Rock Casino.

Thanksgiving 2010

I thought I lost the camera cord and am way behind on posts. So here goes the catching up:

Thanksgiving was wonderful. We were all together, (sans Spencer, who decided to go and get a job in retail just before black Friday) which these days is quite the feat.  Most of us packed into a car and looked forward to warmer weather in Sunny Arizona. It was warm and we were able to enjoy some of the best food ever eaten on thanksgiving (thanks to the gourmand Dahl girls), football in 60 degree weather, great company and great shopping. Here are some highlights:

Alan and Julie barely made it, driving through icy roads.

I realize I am looking a little greasy but c'mon, it was Thanksgiving!
