I am a bit late in sharing this, but just wanted to talk about how much fun it was to share Christmas with the grandkids when they still believe in Santa at 7 and 8. And it was their first Christmas visiting in Florida. Usually we go up north. And since they were buried in snowstorms up there, it was a good time for a Florida Christmas. The weather was beautiful and we even played some tennis before we sat down to eat the turkey and trimmings and count our blessings.
And they were fascinated with seeing things like the house that has a gator in lights on their roof pulling Santa's sleigh. Only in Florida.
A few weeks back, one of my daughters sent me to a store on Sunday morn to get an Nintendo game on sale. And then I had to go back a week later because they lowered the price. Well, seeing the grandson jumping up and down with glee when he opened it made it all worth it. And the thing isn't much bigger than a deck of cards, but has more computing power than we had when we went to the moon. It even has web access and takes pictures (I thought it was just a thing toplay games on) although my granddaughter explained they are not allowed to go on the web. When we were raising our kids, we didn't have to worry about them being on the web. How times change.
Anyway, want to wish everybody a Happy New Year. Some years aren't memorable but let's hope this one is for you and yours.
