Christmas 2014

by on Dec.29, 2014, under Family

Christ­mas 2014 was dif­fer­ent for Joyce and I. Both the Prado’s and Mont­gomery’s are mov­ing into to new homes, so we vis­it­ed them rather than hav­ing fam­i­ly Christ­mas at our home with at least one fam­i­ly. So the week­end before Christ­mas we trav­eled to Savan­nah to see Hei­di and Gary’s just fin­ished home. It’s great and we are sure that they are going to enjoy it and we felt like San­ta drop­ping off gifts at their old home. Right after Christ­mas they will move in.

The plan was to fly to Flori­da on Tues­day before Christ­mas but a elec­tri­cal issue with our plane and the weath­er con­spired against us. So we watched it storm in Hilton Head and cheered our air­craft ser­vice cen­ter on. By Tues­day the plane was fixed but not flight test­ed because the weath­er con­tin­ued bad and it looked like it would­n’t be good until Christ­mas day. Joyce and I enjoyed a fire in the fire­place and had Christ­mas eve din­ner togeth­er at home. It was a very nice Christ­mas eve and gift exchange. The next morn­ing the weath­er was good enough to fly and the plan was if all worked well we would pro­ceed to Fort Laud­erdale. Except for strong head­winds the trip was good and the plane worked per­fect­ly. We arrived around 11:00 AM in time for Christ­mas brunch in Jen and Mikes new home. We then exchanged gifts and had a great Christ­mas day togeth­er. They choose the route of buy­ing a exist­ing house with great poten­tial and then redec­o­rate and change it to fit their needs. It is going to be a great prop­er­ty when they get it done and fur­nished, but now they are in the unpack­ing and project mode, but enjoy­ing it.

We had a great time and had time to have lunch with our friends Jill and Den­nis Haber on Fri­day after Christ­mas, then spent time with fam­i­ly Fri­day evening and Sat­ur­day. Sun­day morn­ing we had break­fast by the pool with Alexan­dra, Jen and Mike, then flew back to Hilton Head to have lunch out­doors over­look­ing the har­bor at Shel­ter Cove in balmy weath­er on the way from the air­port to home. It was a dif­fer­ent Christ­mas but one we enjoyed thanks to our trusty Cir­rus air­plane and great family.
