Christmas 2012

For the second time this year we got everyone together at one place at the same time.  Thea was able to come from San Francisco for 3-4 days.  Sara and Kevin  (the newlyweds)  came up from LA for three days.  Jared has been here for a couple of weeks.  He's laying over on his way to work as an Arborist in New Zealand.  Jesse and Cori and the grand kids were with us for 8 days.

The grand kiddies had to check out the new hot tub with Uncle Kevin and Aunt Sara.

 It is becoming a tradition to play the bells with Gramme Marla.

 Jared maned the wood fired pizza oven and Cori takes a turn tossing the pizza dough.
 Ah the wonders of Christmas morning.
 Thirty two years ago Marla's grandmother, Mama Jo Coleman, started the tradition of making fancy Christmas stockings for her great grand children.  Marla has continued the tradition by making them for the grand kids and son-in-laws.  Kevin's is the latest.  (second from the left)

 We had some snow for Christmas this year, so Jared and Papa Jeff piled it up
and made a little sledding hill for the kids.

 A beautiful White Christmas
This kid has lived in Phoenix her whole life.  Where did she learn about snow angels?

 The two I-phone girls.
 The Musketeer did a fine job of hauling all six of us up to Lake Tahoe and back.
 Carson Valley Swimm Center provided some good diversions.
