It’s true. When you’re retired, it’s not really a Christmas vacation. But it was special, because we got to share the holiday for the first time with my son’s family. We’ve been with or hosted the other kids and grandkids at different times, so this was pretty cool.
There was an observance of “La Posada” at church, portraying Mary and Joseph’s search for a place to stay in Bethlehem.
Keep with the Hispanic theme, there was also a piñata.
Christmas Day itself involved presents for the grandkids, of course.
And there was food, including homemade bagels.
Not to mention the goose. My favorite taste treat, however, was the chestnut stuffing. Wonderful.
Also there was time for Plano family photos in the pool, of course. Not quite Florida, but still warm enough for a swim when you have the heater on.
After all that fun, back at the camper, it was time for some eggnog. Yum. God bless us, every one!
