Holidays 2020

by on Dec.30, 2020, under Family

What a year! The pandemic has changed a lot of things but we have tried to keep our family traditions and still be safe. We gathered for the Fourth of July as usual at Chechessee Creek, with most of the organized activities canceled, however, we had our own including a huge fireworks event on the river.

We all got tested and then gathered for Thanksgiving again at Chechessee. It was a great family Thanksgiving with the usual feasting and giving thanks.

Joyce and I flew down to Fort Lauderdale for Christmas with Jennifer, Mike and, Alexandra on the day before Christmas Eve. We again had all gotten tested and transferred from our plane to Jennifer’s car without much contact with others. Jennifer had planned a great holiday weekend with lots of great food and being with family. The gift exchange on Christmas morning was lots of fun followed by brunch. Both Christmas Eve and Christmas day dinners were eating extravaganzas, with a traditional prime rib of beef the piece de la resistance. On boxing day we got to meet Josh Alexandra’s boyfriend, who joined us for dinner. Our Forty-Niners won their game so it was a great day capping a great Christmas holiday.

Joyce and I flew back to Hilton Head on Sunday after a terrific family Christmas. This was the year that Hiedi’s family spent Christmas with Gary’s family. They then visited the Greenbrier for a family outing to return on the first. Joyce and I will celebrate the New Year and then plan to meet the Prado family for our Christmas gift exchange on the weekend after New Year’s Day. Stay tuned for more images to follow. Happy New Year to all our friends.
