Well Kien and I went to Vegas with Amy, Brian, and their daughter Hannah. We went to Tonia's house and had a delicious dinner with them. Then Tonia took us out to The Melting Pot for dessert. It was so delicious! Kien was crazy though and made a mess. He kept putting his hand in Tonia's drink to take out the ice. He saw everyone using prongs to stab their food so he used Tonia straw to stab at everyone else's food.I think his mouth is full of marshmallow.
Here is Amy and Hannah. She was so well-behaved.
Then we went home and put the kids to bed. Then we watched Twilight since Tonia had not seen it yet. However, Amy and I fell asleep and Tonia braved the movie alone. She said it was not as scary as the book. (She was really afraid of James when she read it.)
The next morning Kien woke me up bright and early. We were the first ones down stairs and we went into the back yard to find that it had been toilet papered. When Tonia came down she thought it was pretty funny. Then she eventually made her way out to the front of the house. The front was also TP'd but in addition, it was also egged along with her son's car. Suddenly Tonia wasn't laughing anymore. Brian was very nice and cleaned a bunch of it up until the kid who was responsible came over to clean up. The kids were outside while we gathered up the TP.
Here is Bailey & Sadie (Tonia's girls), Kien, and Hannah. The girls were so cute in their matching polar fleece bear suits that I was kicking myself for not bringing Kien's blue bear suit to match. Oh well.
Then we went shopping. I was in the market for a dress for graduation this June and the girls helped me out a ton. They told me what to wear and Amy applied all her knowledge that she's picked up from the show "What Not to Wear". I felt like I was on the show as the girls brought back different things for me to try and telling me that I HAD to have a chunky necklace with a chunky bracelet that was a different color from the dress. They were DEAD SERIOUS when they told me I HAD to have a bracelet. I thought they were teasing me but nope- it was a RULE that I was not allowed to break. I had a good time with them.
Here is the dress I bought on a pretty model.
Here is the sweater I bought to go with it. Tonia had an amazing coupon that she let me use. Thanks Tonia!
Here is the chunky jewelry they had me try on. I didn't buy it from this store but I will be on the lookout for good, turquoise, chunky jewelry.
Then we went back to Tonia's since the kids were in Nuclear Meltdown Mode and Brian had had enough of babysitting. Here we are as we were leaving to go back to Cedar. Thanks so much Tonia! You are a wonderful hostess. Thanks for taking all the pictures Amy and Brian!
