Holiday Greetings – A Recipe – Some Jokes
These are unprecedented times that call for following new health recommendations for celebrating Christmas 2020. We will be enjoying the holiday season with members of our household only. Our children are excited despite not seeing friends and other family members. They have our attention and time which is what kids really like.
We are very happy. Life is good. I hope you take this time to have fun with your loved ones. Stay warm and stay safe and have a happy and healthy New Year in 2021.
Our best wishes to you, from Chris, Nancy, Meah and Nick
