Merry Christmas!

 7:49 pm - Monday - December 26th - GNHS - 61° F, humidity 47%, wind 3 mph out of the is dark now, but it was a clear, blue, sunny kind of day....the high was 74° F.  On this date in 2019 we were at the home of my odest child, Chris, and his amazing wife, Rochelle clelebrating Christmas that year.  There are 19 people in this picture from 3 years ago, and and adding in Elijah (Kate's oldest child), and Jameson (granddaughter Cynthia's youngest) who were not present, there were 21 as of Xmas 2019.   As of this Christmas my grandson Christoper is in a long term relationship with a wonderful woman, Zoey, a lady if you will, daughter, Kate, has a added new son, Levy, and daughter-in-law, Laila has added another daughter, Bowie, brings the total to 24.  Twenty-four people who would not be related to each other, or in this picture except for Elaine accepting my proposal 51 years ago......a concept which is difficult for me to wrap my 73 year old brain around, but it is reality, nonetheless.......↴

.....unfortunately, this Christmas Kate and her family (6 people) were not able to be present at Chris' home as Nick (her husband) tested positive for the Wuhan flu, and Tim, Laila, Crosby and Bowie moved to Georgia this year (4 more people), but here are random pictures taken at  from the 2022 edition of the Hockwald Christmas at Chris and Rochelle's home.....

.....TLE began our drive north and west to Chris and Rochelle's home Christmas morning around 7 am, and arrived without event around 9 am.  The roads were deserted, and the air was so, so clear on this Christmas morning.....

.....we spent around 6 hours at Chris and Rochelle's home eating great food, opening presents, and taking many pictures.  Soon it was time to head to the home of Rod and Sharon (daughter) where we would spend a lovely evening watching Christmas movies.....A Christmas Story, Elf, and Christmas Vacation before heading off to dreamland around 10 pm.  Needless to say TLE and I were very happy, and very tired.

Merry Christmas to all of you, and yours, and thank you so much for stopping by!
