Clinic party… Day 761 15DEC10
Joshua and Jarrod both started out with school this morning like most days. After they got done they went out to do a little Christmas shopping including trying on some skates at the sporting goods store. Next stop was a visit to my dad's house for a little time with him before heading off to our party. I met them at my dad's and had a nice visit before it was time to leave. This was the 20th annual Christmas party sponsored by St. Josephs Children's Hospital Clinic, the very clinic we have visited every monday for years now. The kids always look forward to attending this party and this year was no exception. We shared a table with Lucas, Ania, and Wojtek as well as Nate, Tiffany, Preston, and Hannah. We saw a lot of our very good friends and had a blast watching the kids really enjoy themselves. All of the Doctor's and nurses we deal with are such a big part of our lives and it is great to be able to hang out with them in such a fun environment. We came home and watched the Lightning win in a shootout which was very exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. When Hedman scored and Smith blocked the next shot to win Joshua, who had put his shirt on during the third period to help them win, jumped up and said, "see, it works!" So it was a great evening filled with good memories and now the kids are off to bed and I am sure they are already waiting for next years party to start.
