So great to wake up to lovely sunshine and clear skies and know it is the day of the big party…I was at Casa Hogar at 10.15am and started to get things ready the Madres and the girls had decorated the hall and it looked lovely…….I had some wonderful helpers today and thank you so much for giving up your time and embracing the spirit of Santa Julia….thanks Josilin, Karen, Megan, Karen,Rick, Vincent, Jorge, Patrick and of course Robin….also thanks to Paulina for incredible tamales, to Patrick and Franck for the delicious cup cakes and to Javier for the fabulous soup!!!!
I also want to thank my friends, Allison, June, Annie and Gord from Nanaimo who paid for the food and supplies…. know you made the girls and Madres very happy!!!
The party was a huge success and everyone had a special and lovely time….there is lots of food left over for the next couple of days and I cannot think of a better way to spend some time at this special time of the year……enjoy the photos!!!
One of the main reasons for me doing the party this way was for no one to be working…there were a few dishes that needed to be cleaned and with out any asking whatsoever these two great young ladies went into the kitchen and washed and cleaned the kitchen!!!!
Thanks to all my lovely helpers the girls and Madres had a wonderful time with great food and company!!!!
Around 4pm I left Casa Hogar and went to Linda and Guy and we had a lovely Christmas dinner with a difference….we had lamb and it was very good….we then watched a great Christmas movie and now 10pm here I am back at Casita Doris thinking how lucky I am to have special friends, two fabulous girls and many more great kids in my life ..thanks to all!!!!
