December 17th was a crazy day. It was the day that I finished putting together the 2 quiet books I'd been working on for the girls' Christmas presents. It was the day that I'd finished all my Christmas shopping, wrapping and packing it like a jigsaw puzzle into my car. It was the day I had me and the girls bags packed for a 12 holiday vacation to AZ, and the day I drove by myself with a 2 and 4 year old to Las Vegas. Not only was it a crazy day I was crazy for taking on so much by myself. But I made it happen and we headed south to meet Rob, who was working in Vegas the week prior. We made it without incident and I only had to bribe Sophie with my phone for a couple hour, rather than listen to her cry.
