Sadly at the last minute our son James had to cancel his trip up to us with Morgen and Kolya (our youngest grandson 4 years old). All of them were sick with a cold all week (they did test negative awhile ago but couldn't find a new test available). Washington DC has had a really bad outbreak of the new COVID virus. Regretfully we all decided it they shouldn't make the long drive north. We did see them every day on Zoom and were able to watch Kolya open his presents. Kudos to the Post Office as the huge package we mailed on Thursday arrived on Monday!
|Our youngest son Sean and our son-in-law Will cuddle up on the couch. It's snowing outside and you can see our tree over on the left.|
But happily Sean and Will came up for a week so we had a Merry Christmas with them. All four of us tested negative before their arrival and we are being tested again before our flights later this week. Sean and Will are flying to the British Virgin Islands on Thursday for a week bare boat chartering with friends. Scott and I fly to Guatemala on Friday. We're keeping our fingers crossed that our flights aren't canceled! Thousands have been over the past week. Next post hopefully will be on our boat in Tortugal Marina, on the Rio Dulce!
|We had a roaring fire in the fireplace often and all day on Christmas. We've had snow cover for over a week now with flurries now and then. |
|Scott gave me the aqua down vest and I gave him|
the navy fleece jacket.

sneakers from Will and the traditional flannel
pants we give all our kids.
|Of course we had great meals every |
night. We all love to cook and eat.
here's one of my pies, apple!

barrister son makes.
|And so do Will and Sean. That's Will's sweater|
from Sean and his flannel pants.
