I’m starting out with these lists:
  • Visits to make  I usually don’t plan on any visits, but I think this year it might be fun to visit the grandchildren in their homes to see their trees. Maybe Boxing Day, which is usually our big games day…
  • Parties/Entertaining I hope to have some of the family over for Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s all. Maybe we could have the grandchildren over for New Year’s Eve so the parents can enjoy that grownup holiday.
