More snow!

Wednesday we had record snow fall in Las Vegas. I am sure most of you saw that on the national news, and it was really amazing. Even on the strip we had 3-5". What a sight it was at Mandalay Bay to watch the beach being covered in fresh powder! Here are a few pictures at our house.

As the snow was falling - it was sooooo much fun to watch!
As the snow fall lightened up, you could see our house a little more clearly:

Our backyard... it looks like a resort in Tahoe! :)

This has been a memorable week in Vegas. If we weren't in the holiday spirit yet, this certainly helped!

Snow in the Desert!

This morning we woke to snowflakes falling! After an "early out" from work, Jeff and I made it home before it melted away. We took our dog Dylan down to our community park to play. Dylan misses the snow apparently because he started running around like a young pup! :)

Here we are with one of the park's snowmen, and Michael and Erica's dog Cash. He is so skinny the poor dog was shivering. Dylan however was rolling around in the snow, he loved it!

The forecast calls for a couple more days of showers and snow, so hopefully we will get to see a little more of this weather. It's a wonderful change for the holidays!

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Suzi's family in California. We spent Thursday in Marin with Nana, we had a wonderful lunch, exchanged Hanukkah gifts and had a nice evening. Friday and Saturday were spent in Ceres with all the Scott Crew. We did our Christmas early this year, becuase we will be in Cincinnati for Christmas. Santa came to Diane and Bruce's house on Friday night - it was so much fun! Sunday we visited with Suzi's close friends Melissa and Shannon in Ceres before we drove to San Jose to finally meet Darcy and Jeff's new baby Sean. It was a fun-filled weekend, and as always, we love spending as much time as possible with our friends and family!

Here are some pictures of our weekend:

Our oldest nephew Dylan pretending to be sad at Thanksgiving, but he loves his Auntie and Uncle VERY much!

Happy nephew Devan celebrating his 1st birthday with Suzi's mom Diane, grandmother Annette, and sister Michele.

Santa brought us a Wii! :)

The cutest matching boys EVER!
