I cannot remember a time in my life when a Christmas Party complete with Santa was so much fun. The residents at Isla Iguana here in Puerto Vallarta (50 homeowners) put on a fiesta for all the staff and their children that take such good care of all of us. Gate guards, maids, administrators.. it was something. I have never seen so many well behaved children, waiting for Santa to arrive... the anticipation was amazing.... and when he arrived you could hear yourself breathe, and then shouts of welcome.
When Santa asked if they had been good, everyones little hand went up... I could have cried. I was of course, the photographer for the night and could not have been more pleased. Nancy, Kathie and myself wrapped all the presents and decorated the tree for the party... All the employees got boxes of goods also raffel presents (everyone got at least one, some two gifts... it was just so much fun doing for other people...we all have so much. There was one little girl, about 2 years old, that would not open her doll, but for at least an hour walked around to show each person their her present, never putting it down. I have never seen anyone so happy about her gift.
Leave it to say that I am having a good Christmas, but missing my Children and Grandchildren.
We had a new Granddaughter on Monday, December 15th, 8 lbs 1 oz and 21 inches long. Mother and Baby are doing well. Our Son, Tom, is so excited. At 39 this is his first and I know he will be a great dad just like Randy. Prudence Scott is our 10th grandchild and we couldn't be happier.
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. Much love from Randy and me with a wish for a Happy Prosperous New Year
