Celebrating during a COVID ChristmasPosted: December 27, 2020 Filed under: Topics of Current Interest | Tags: COVID Christmas, Family FaceTime, Gingerbread houses, Sally Forth Gingerbread House Comic Leave a comment
Gingerbread houses. . .this is what our kids planned to celebrate the Christmas holiday together. Christmas Eve, we along with our 3 children, their spouses, and our 9 grandchildren decorated gingerbread houses via FaceTime. Everyone had 30 minutes to decorate their pre-built houses and were limited to 5 decorating materials. The 15 “contestants” ranged from 7-73 years of age. When the houses were completed and photographed, my daughter sent the “entries” to Uncle Bob for judging.
On Christmas morning, Grandma and Grandpa facetimed each family individually and then watched in as each of those families opened their gifts from each other. It took four hours, but when all was said and done, the chaos turned to quiet and there was no mess to clean up at the GPs house. It was not better than having everyone here, but I’m just trying to look for the positives. Just saying!
