Ahhhhh! A Glimpse: Kristi's Christmas Party

My company has returned to FL....we loved having grandson, Jared and girlfriend, Jessica here over the New Year, and they had a great time exploring Cape Cod and Boston. They even got to tour Plymouth. Yesterday morning it was back to work time and leaving LM and Ms G (sob, sob). It really did feel nice to be back at my desk, though, and to greet my co-workers after the long break.
At lunch I moved my things back into my place knowing there would be a relaxing evening at home for the first time since December 16th.
Also returning to work, LM was on a long car trip to northern VT yesterday. He was pleased as he's had a long time with no calls to work for dealers.
Over the next few days, I hope to catch up with my blog self.

Back in mid-December, the day program Kristi attends at Community Connections, had a gala Christmas/Holiday party at a local restaurant, and I took the afternoon off to attend. It was such a nice event with everyone dressed in their holiday best, a delicious meal was served, and Santa made an appearance, passing out gifts especially chosen for all the attendees.
Kristi was decked out in her holiday sweater and seemed to be having a great time with her friends.
Showing off a gift.
A nice pose with her beloved friend and leader of her group, Lisa. Lots of wishes to Lisa for a very happy new year in 2011. You are such an asset to Kristi's life and it was a pleasure to meet you!!

What a touching post. I'm so glad we have places for people like Kristi to go to work and play. It adds so much to their lives.
