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.
