Holidays for Hope… Day 757 11DEC10

 The morning was spent with Lee and I getting eye exams. It has been several years unfortunately since we have been able to see the eye doctor. We both did fairly well with not a lot of changes. The rest of the day was spent resting our eyes after having them dilated and the boys playing both in and out of the house. This evening we went to the Mira Lago Holidays for Hope Fundraiser. We are very honored to have Joshua as the recipient for their fundraiser this year. The residents of Mira Lago are very generous and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

They had a wonderful turnout this evening of residents and special guests. They had lots of raffles with special help from the Webelos from St Anne Church. The Doby Elementary Choir gave an awesome performance of Christmas songs for everyone and we even got a visit from Santa. Thunderbug and some very special Lightning Girls also came to help with the fundraiser. The Bolts are still away playing in Canada so we didn't get any players but the girls were awesome!

Thank you for all of our family and friends that made it to the fundraiser this evening. They are still having the event tomorrow night (Sunday) as well from 7-9 for anyone who would still like to go. Joshua and Jarrod did a great job picking the winner this year and you really should come see the house. It very beautiful with all its lights!

Christmas is a very special and magical time of year. We feel very blessed to have such wonderful and caring people in our lives at this time. Thank You!

Great community to get involved and you gotta love the Lightning organization. Renee, you did get your hair cut and I love it. Funny, about 3 weeks ago I went that short also. Just so easy to take care of. You are beautiful inside and out. Love to you all
