So this winter, it was really snowy at our house. My dad and sister Miranda had made this huge sledding hill that started in our neighbors front yard (we had permission!) and curved down to the bottom of our backyard! It looked like alot of fun, so Jason and I decided to take a couple runs! It was a blast!

Phantom The Las Vegas Spectacular

For Christmas, Jason gave me 2 tickets to see Phantom The Vegas Spectacular [one for me and one for him :)] It was the best Christmas present ever.. I LOVE Phantom! So the first weekend in January we took a road trip down to St George and then on to Vegas. We got to St George Saturday afternoon and I got ready SO FAST in an effort to make it to my friend Cara's wedding. But...we didn't make it quite in time. We kinda watched/listened to the ceremony from outside and went in for the reception and food! It was a beautiful wedding! And I did get to see a bunch of my former Target coworkers so it was cool. We left the wedding and headed for Vegas! The show was at the Venetian Hotel where they constructed a theater just for Phantom. It was amazing! We had really good seats towards the back of the front section in the middle - right under the chandellier. It was so awesome. All of the effects and everything were soo cool. The show was beyond what I expected... I still can't get over how amazing it was. I definitely like the live performance better than the movie. It was a perfect Christmas present! Jason actually enjoyed it alot more than he thought he would too :) We definitely want to see it again sometime. Sooo.. we left Vegas and drove back up to St George at like 1 am. I left poor Jason alone for part of the drive though because I kept falling asleep! Sorry J! Either way, we made it back to St. George, woke up Sunday morning, and came back up north! It was a spectacular weekend and a perfect gift. Thanks Pooky!! I know my jacket doesn't match the dress but it was COLD!
