The Holidays are quickly approaching!

Monday, December 7, 2009
We had a nice turnout at our PH support group Christmas party on Saturday. We had some great food, fellowship and presents!! You can't beat that! It was so nice to see phriends, friends and family together having such a great time. It was also nice for our caregivers to have time to visit with other caregivers and relax a bit.

Carol (in the middle) is our support group leader. As you can see, she does a great job of making everyone feel welcome to the party!

Jessica (in front) couldn't wait until we did our present exchange game!

Lynne (on the left) has such a supportive sister!

Paula (left) and Barb both said, "I don't like having my picture taken!" I told them, "Why do you suppose I'm always holding the camera?!?"

Dean and Karen enjoy getting caught up on each other's lives.

Lynne and Ed share how they've been feeling since the last meeting.

Carol is "sharing the love" with PH nurse, Judy!

Rod was "thrilled" to have picked some lovely candles for his present!

Roy ended up with a "beer maker." I'm not sure Frances, his wife, thinks it's such a great idea!

Dean wasn't sure what to do with his "colorful" socks and gloves that he picked! He was thrilled when someone "stole" them from him and he got to pick something else!

Karen, on the other hand WAS thrilled when she picked this book out of the presents. But, her happiness didn't last very long. Someone else "stole" it from her and she had to pick another gift!

Bob was THRILLED when he got the chance to steal the "Keep you Coffee Hot" mug from someone!

For a bunch of sick people, we are kind of a cut-throat group!!
Actually, this is the most amazing, energizing, loving and motivating bunch of people I have even known.

Thanks for checking in.
Thanks for reading.

Hi Annette it has been a long time since I've been to the blogs. Your Christmas exchange sounds like fun. One picks a wrapped gift, then you all re-exchange the gifts after they are opened. I like that idea. Sounds like you have a great time with your group. I love the pictures - I too would be the one taking them.
