Some Christmas caroling 4-H elfs

The Eagles 4-H group met on Friday at a local assisted
living facility to sing some Christmas carols and hand
out treat bags to the residents that lived there.
The group of kids are all homeschooled children that
range in age from 5-12, there
are 32 kids total in the group, but the picture was taken
right before we left.
My 2 divas are on the front row in the
green shirt "smiling "and in the red shirt "pouting". I
reckon the little pouting diva does not remember the
song about "Santa coming to town"
Better not pout!!! Better not cry!!
I am telling you why,
Because Santa Claus is coming to town
and you are driving your mother crazy!

I am a "blogging slacker"

"Santa Tom" and a friend

Neil ("Santa's" helper and friend)

Seasons greetings to all, boy have I been a blogging slacker.
I have so many things to post and never the time to do it.
So today I will try to better. First of all my father is back
home after another chemoembolization procedure on
December 10. He did fairly well this time, some minor
complications thatresolved themselves. He is still in a lot
of a pain and battling fevers while at home.
We pray that this treatment will dosomething substantial
to the 3 liver tumors that he has.
This is his favorite time of year, he always loved to dress
up in his Santa suit and spend Christmas eve at the local
children's hospital there in Columbia. His health the last
couple of years has just made it impossible to play
"Santa Tom". I posted a couple of pictures above that
I love, these were actually done by a newsreporter a
couple of years ago. The nurses on the Pediatric cancer
floor had the local paper come and do a story on
"Mr Tom" and his yearly visit on Christmas eve to make
sure all of the kids with cancer get something that night
from him. His helper is a great guy named Neil who
volunteered to dress up in that elf suit yearly and go
with Mr Tom to hand out presents.
