T Minus a few hours before 2020 is over with and a new year begins… and thousands of people are waiting for a new year to start!
I’ve covered my bases on the reason why I’m thankful for this year, which you can read about it here, and I know that sounds really bad to be thankful when such horrible things have happened. Of course i’m NOT thankful that hundreds of thousands of people died because of Covid, it truly does sadden me that we are still fighting this battle, but I am mainly thankful for the time my kids have had with us. They may not appreciate it right now, but as they get older they will appreciate the time they had with us during this time.
Anyways… enough about that. I wanted this post to recap all of what we did this year… all from doing projects in the Mosley Casa to our new off-road adventures! So many new things that we did, that I will never forget.
All from going to the snow
to hosting our first family gathering at the Mosley Casa

We started the month off with another off-road adventure to the Colosseum Mine

Then driving to Pahrump, NV to turn on a road which led us to Death Valley (completely not planned)
To chaos happening in the world, and to all being quarantined in our house and having to cancel Melia’s 9th birthday party, which led to a surprise 6ft apart birthday singout!
And ending the month with a visit to the Las Vegas strip and seeing it completely dark, which was the saddest thing ever! My city went dark!
