Skyler is headed to Las Vegas...

this afternoon for work. He and his manager, and a coworker are going to a ride operations training and conference until Thursday night. It is his first work conference and he is going to get "certified" as a ride operator trainer. They are staying at Circus Circus; it should be fun.

Meanwhile, I will be going through midterm week and my midterm grades are due Thursday morning. Wish me luck! We have been trying to prepare for my single-working-mom-ness for a couple weeks. Hopefully it pays off and I will be successful. It is only four days!

I will let you know how successful we were in a few days...

The Jingle Bell

My mom gave us a bright red jingle bell ornament for Christmas. Eliza loves it. She always asks to open it and skyler and I have been trying to explain that it is impossible. She decided that maybe she wasn't explaining herself well enough.

Yesterday's conversation:
Eliza Lane: Open bell, Daddy? It's hard.
Skyler: No. We can't open it. It doesn't open.

Eliza Lane: Ok. Break bell, Daddy?
Skyler: No. We don't want to break it.

Eliza Lane: Crack bell, Daddy?
Skyler: No. We can't crack it or break. We just listen to it.

So funny! It all means the same to her. She just wants to look INSIDE!
