Somehow my pictures split the events when I posted and I don't know how to fix it, but anyway S and J both have December birthdays. J is the 14th and S the 25th. We had a little birthday dinner for them before they left for Christmas vacation at home in Maryland.

The next morning we got up early and went to La Vie en Rose, a french restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious.

The stockings were hung and we were able to enjoy opening a few early presents since we sadly wouldn't be together for Christmas

The bags can be used afterwards also. Who wouldn't love to have a purse like that? I know I would love to have a bag like that.
We also had a special speaker who works for the shelter. She gave a wonderful presentation and spoke about what goes on in the centers. She also talked a lot about abuse and addiction.
It was a LOT of work, but we felt really good about it. We felt it was a very fun and successful activity. We hope that we brought a little joy and a ray of sunshine to those who are in a troubled situation right now.
