Another record



This is not one of the those you put on the wall records, but a new length of time between blog posts.  We have remained reasonably busy including a trip to northern GA to visit our grandson's family.  This was a long weekend and nearly a thousand mile adventure.






We took Victoria to the local privately owned zoo, which hosted a very nice Christmas display supporting the U S Marine's Toys for Tots program on the night of our visit.







Our Winnebago club gathered at the  Topsail Resort State Park for their annual Christmas celebration campout.  This is a great place to spend some time, if you are in the Florida panhandle.







We have also been busy with annual physicals that resulted in some unexpected additional visits and admittedly some stress.  We hope to be finished with all of that early in the new year.

Finally, we have been decorating a house for Christmas for the first time in seven years!  Our daughter Katie and SIL Dain have been able to join us from Ohio for the holiday. On Dec 5th, we celebrated the Dutch tradition of St Nicholas arriving and leaving small presents in our wooden shoes.





We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love the photo of you two eating cereal. So real.

What a wonderful display of lights.

I have never heard of the St. Nichols tradition and wooden shoes. Thanks for sharing one of your traditions.

Merry Christmas to you and the family.

It seems that you are keeping busy now that you are gounded by a foundation. Your new little camper seems to be ideal for what you want it for. So lucky to have the best of both worlds. Enjoy your time with family :-)

Great header photo ... and I love those little Dutch wooden clogs with the gifts. Hope all's well and the medical issues that resulted in unexpected visits back to the doc have been resolved.

Lots of terrific photos but my favourite is your header pic with Victoria and Santa Claus.

Loved the wooden shoes one too!

I'm with Rick. Great picture of victoria and Santa. And I love the wooden shoes and their traditions. Glad you posted, I was wondering what happened to you. Should have known you were just too busy having a good time.
Happy Holiday!!
