You are already planning christmas?! What did you have in mind? With how Oregon is on its phased reopening, I have this feeling we aren't going to get visits until a vaccine comes out.
I think you could be right about visits. Depressing. I always plan for a great Christmas and somehow it never pans out (last year he was in the hole) but I keep trying. I want to send something every day, pics, card, thoughts, maybe puzzle pieces with some message, etc., during the month of December. I decided to start getting stuff together early because it gives me something to smile about. I was also thinking to look over the commissary list and find some recipes of things they can make in there with the ingredients. I sent a prison cookbook a couple of years ago and the guys pooled their resources to make a big Christmas meal (didn't work either because they ended up in lockdown). I don't know if you send her racy photos but, if you do, then maybe that's the thing you can give her every day))) I can't get racy letters past the mailroom or I would write one hell of a Christmas story. Haha. This is definitely not the life for the faint of heart. Stay strong, this will pass... Put on your thinking cap and start having some fun!!!
