Papa’s World – Returning home for Christmas and family time.

After two and one half months –

we journeyed back to our home base in NVA!

We wanted to spend the Holiday with the kids of both families.

And – we took the Covid19 test and were negative!

Our plan was to stay for three weeks and then come back to the Condo

at Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa Maddy Bode Ella Sherry Taylor Sarah Cassidy – our six grand kids whom all wanted us back for Christmas!

“All I want for Christmas is you grandma” says Sarah!

Our time there was both long and short –

long in that it was cold and I do not do cold very well!

We had their first snow – ice and wind for the year.

Short in that it went very fast and we miss them all ready!

A visit to a winery in the snow with a log campfire! BLEU FROG!!!!

We stayed back and forth until our family in Lake Holiday had to go into quarantine

due to coming in contact with a neighbor just by talking outdoors with her.

So – they were able to get the negative tests back and we went up Christmas Eve

to spend the night with them!

So – we got to spend quality time with both families

and then we all had dinner together.

While the weather was cold – we did manage to stay inside – play games

put puzzles together – good dinners and the little ones loved it!

We made the most of the time together

We – had family time

We spent time together before we were to leave

and head back South!

We even got to watch and cheer on the Buffalo Bills football team!

A big part of our sports life before we moved TO NVA!

It was cold – there was snow – ice and wind.

Have a blessed New Year!

Papa’s World – making memories – cookies – with the oldest grand daughters!

First you gather the ingredients – then you gather the grand daughters and their mother!
Mother ( Debby) Ella Sarah Sherry ( grand ma) Maddy

Memories are made each year during the holidays –

making Christmas cookies is one of them!

Sherry has done this for years – and they all love it!

They laugh and laugh at her and with her!
The results – or a small fraction of the results – all decorated by each of the grand daughters!

She teaches them her heritage and is passed down generation to generation.

Sherry is Swedish – her grand mother was born in Sweden.

She is 5 ‘ 9″ tall – and Ella is almost as tall – Sarah will be that also and Taylor at 10 years old

comes up to her chin!

The temptations are there – YUMMY!
She is a educator – teaching them to be themselves – honor – compassion and self worth!

Respect is what they have for her.

Admiration – and laughing – both at her and with her.

Going shopping with Grandma!

MEMORIES for a lifetime!

Ella Sarah Sherry

We will come up once more and spend a couple days and Christmas eve.

Then we will go back to Tammy’s for Christmas day!

The little ones are so excited and she made cookies with them also!

To them she is not grand ma – but MORMOR – mother’s mother in Swedish!

After Christmas we will once again head back to S.C.

Knowing that Memories were once again made

and captured into this blog

for future reading – seeing !

Papas World – family – sharing a holiday.

We all live within 1 1/2 hours drive –

we try to share time together during the Holidays

Usually a overnight –

a campfire – a dinner – games and music.

Welcome to Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

Two daughters – their husbands
five grand daughters
and one grand son

A lot of planning goes into this as they also spend time with in laws.

But we find a way – and this time we all met at the Krohns

Tammy and Marcus’s house for a Christmas day and sleep over.

Mother and two daughters
Debby – Sherry – Tammy

Sleeping arrangements done – campfire going in fire pit outside

some drinks – music – and great traditional food.

Opening of presents –

laughter – toys – games

and putting together puzzles.

Papa’s World – colors – lights – our yard – Fall – Christmas

The trees – both in front and along the side –

Full of reds – yellow – orange and rust colors.

I love this time – except the cold !

Tree in front yard

For as far as I can see up and down the streets – colors!

I still mow the grass – the irrigation has been blown out –

and turned off – leaves are falling –

The Tower Gardens are all down – cleaned and packed away.

Except we now have the one inside up and running.

With grow lights –

A view up the street

The leaves will be a problem – usually 15 to 20 bags!

As the landscape changes – the air cooler – darker at night –

we turn on the fireplace –

The glow – the extra blanket on the couch

Winter is peeking in!

The patio and the trees
looking over

Soon – there will be snow flakes –

The wind will blow –

our walking will be inside at the mall

And once again my mind will turn to sunny days

warm winds and sometimes gentle rain

But for now – it LIGHTS!

The color of trees and the
glow of Christmas lights
our home

Yes – SIX WEEKS and I put up the lights

set up the tree ( no decorations as of now)

The spirit of Christmas is upon me.
