Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Well, after wrapping up a week of work, we were finally able to move the Christmas tree out to the living room onto a new platform I made for the steering wheel. We were able to move the tree because now we would be home all of the time to keep an eye on Rosie so she wouldn't destroy it while we are gone to work.

Thursday night after work, we joined some friends for dinner at Red Robin and then went cruising through a neighborhood in Roseville where almost everyone decorates their home with Christmas lights. One home in particular, had a reprisal of the Grisswold family Christmas and Cousin Eddie in the drive way!

Though Friday meant that Eric had to work half the day, we still had time to go to Brandee's shop and both get a hair cut Friday afternoon. The rest of the weekend, we got to enjoy a lot of quality family time together. Saturday, we had dinner at Sandy and Bill's for Christmas eve. We all got to enjoy a White Elephant gift exchange that evening, that was a lot of fun. Once we got a little gift stealing started, the event became quite lively.

On Sunday, Christmas day, it was our turn to host a little bit of Christmas cheer. We prepared a turkey, cooked in our Convection oven, and all of the trimmings. Katie and Russ came over earlier in the day to open gifts and then Sandy and Bill joined us for dinner later in the day. Carol did a masterful job with the Turkey as always. We are always so pleasantly surprised as to how well we are able to prepare a complete meal in our humble little abode!

We hope that all of you had a safe and happy holiday season.
Merry Christmas to all and too all a good night!

Happy Camping! - Eric and Carol -

Rosie and Getting ready for Christmas

Hi there everyone,

Well, as is to be expected, December is shaping up to be a busy month for our family. But, we know that the holiday season is busy for all us. As we started December, Rosie was completing her dog obedience class at Petsmart. Rosie was a wonderful student during the 6 weeks, but she still had a lot of moments where she was shy, but she does really well at what she learns. The big thing, for almost every dog, is the follow through of the owner. And though we are trying to be better about getting her out, I'm not doing as good as I should at keeping her practice up.

We took Rosie and Lily to the Rancho Cordova Winter Woof fest this last weekend. Both dogs were great. The Winter Woof fest was a modest little event with about 8 vendors as well as Santa Paws. We hope they do it again next year, 'cause we think it is a great little event!

Speaking of Rosie, we aren't quite sure how to leave Rosie alone at home during the day with the Christmas tree. We normally have the tree on the dashboard, and since Rosie is a 'Dash Dog', we know she would have the tree all over the place when we came home from work. So, for the time being, we have the tree set up on the dresser in the bedroom. When we get home from work on Thursday, we will move the tree out to the living room and see if we can keep Rosie from knocking it over.

We've decorated as best we could around our rig with the lights that we had. We're going to see if we can score some more lights when 'clearance' time comes up at Target later this month. As you can see, some of the homes in our part of Rancho Cordova go all out to decorate their neighborhoods. We sure love our new home here in Rancho Cordova.

We were also lucky this holiday season to hook up with Carol's former boss Jerry Reed and his wife Mary for a Christmas dinner. It is always nice to see them and get caught up on what is going on with their family.

We hope that you and yours have a wonderful Holiday season.

Best wishes, Happy Camping! Eric and Carol Anderson
