Merry HoHo 2012

Christmas 2012 in Reno, Nevada was a success!  Wasn't sure I was going to make it in time with all the snow in the Sierras.  I had planned to leave the Bay Area on Saturday, December 22 - but the Snow Gods were intent on providing alot of snow, so no go.  Then Sunday passed with me sitting in the Bay Area while the snow snowed and snowed in the Sierras.  Finally, on Monday, the weather improved and I was able to leave for Reno.  It only took 30 minutes longer than usual.  Got to hand it to the snow removal workers on I80 - they clear those roads (over and over again...) in a very efficient manner. 

Got to Reno in time to help my DIL pick up the big present we were jointly giving her husband (my son).  A 60" flat screen (because a 42" is just not big enough!)

The little boys got their plate of cookies and milk ready for Santa and Daddy wrote their note to Santa.  New Christmas pajamas were worn by the little ones and they went to sleep knowing that Santa's reindeer might wake them up when Santa landed his sleigh on the roof.  

Very, very early in the morning, it was time to get up and survey the piles of presents.

Down they come to see what Santa has left for them.
Headlamps for all the men in the family.
A scooter and a skateboard

And Santa brought a white Christmas and more snow yesterday and today.  No way to practice the balance skills needed for the skateboard or scooter outside.  But Frosty, who had melted a little, was rebuilt into a new and improved version. 

One of the downsides to being a Labradoodle in the snow:

Actually, Boo doesn't think it's a downside - I just get a little tired of trying to clean him off every time he goes out in the yard.  Oh well, it's the Magic of Christmas that provided all the snow and fun, so I will take back any complaints about snow and ice covered dogs. 

Happy Holidays to all!

Aaaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
