Forgot to mention: my sister and my brother-in-law Skyped us from the West Coast last night before bed time. They’re spending the week with their kids, siblings/in-laws, and nieces on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe.
They gave us a virtual tour of the rental house that they’re staying at, which is huge and beautiful. Even though the boy’s cousin Eli was happy to chat with him, the boy was preoccupied with his own video game. The boy’s uncle showed him the 1980s-era video game machine that he was playing with, but the boy wasn’t that interested because it looked to simple.
There’s no snow on the East Coast this year for Christmas, but there isn’t any snow in Tahoe either. So my sister and her family might have to go to a resort that makes fake snow in order to go skiing-slash-snow boarding. It’s sort of like how we go to resorts on the East Coast that make fake sunshine during the Winter.
