Holiday Time

Family News Thanksgiving arrived with plenty of cold weather. Gloria,Paul, and grandkids (myself included) dressed in long sleeves and sweaters for visits to the park and late night Christmas shopping. All the baking did not heat up the house with 45 degree nights for 3 nights! Late Saturday afternoon we all watched the Gators chomp on the Noles with a 37-26 win. There is only one Gator football game each season that I cheer (quietly) for their opposition . When they play FSU I feel the need to support the Seminoles. Fond memories of Dave and those 75 trumpets are unforgettable....
Fast forward and suddenly it was tree decorating, more shopping, more Christmas decorating and then the arrival of Lori and Dave from Colorado and Gloria,Paul,Alexa, and Paul Andrew from Miami. We enjoyed Monsters,Inc. at the movies with the grandkids and visited Flesher's Farm Christmas light display. Alexa and Paul Andrew opened their Christmas gifts from Dave and Lori and enjoyed the Jump-O-Lene " indoor trampoline". Mary and Charlie joined us for dinner on December 23rd and her homemade cheesecake and Karen's chocolate cake were a hit! Our friend Karen across the street arrived for the winter from Chevy Chase, Maryland just over a week ago.
Everyone headed out of Estero by December 24th and then we packed and made our way to Miami on Christmas Eve. We enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner at the Armand's, Gene always looks forward to Yoyi's delicious Christmas ham dinner. Christmas morning Alexa and Paul Andrew awoke to find Santa had delivered just what they asked for! And sure enough he even left more presents at Ba and Booe's. Christmas Day spent with family is always the best present of all! On the 26th we drove up to Ft. Lauderdale and visited with my cousin Mary and her family. Alexa and Paul Andrew got to meet their cousins and Justin's and Mariana's new baby Jacob. I am so thankful for family and all the wonderful memories and times spent together......
