We’ve been getting some packages this week, and the boys were excited to get a few gift cards, along with their favorite gummies from E&S Bulk Foods in Shipshewana! Bryce said he couldn’t resist opening them – he could smell them in the package!
We’ve been doing some shopping as well, and making several trips to the Post Office to mail packages. While Nicolas and I were out shopping on Tuesday, Tom was perusing craigslist and found a lady in Sun City West who had a grapefruit tree and couldn’t use all the grapefruit. She posted an ad for free grapefruit, so on Wednesday we drove over to her house. Just like she said, her tree was loaded with fruit!
Nicolas and Bryce got busy picking . . .
and got some really beautiful fruit!
We ended up with a full trunkload!
Now we just need to find somebody who wants to get rid of some oranges!!
When we finished picking, we grabbed some quick lunch and made it back to the park just in time for the Staff & Volunteer Christmas Party.
We grabbed the pan of cookies that I had made (Salted Caramel Turtle Bars – YUM!), and headed down to the Group Camp Area where the party was being held.
All of the staff and volunteers were there . . .
and there was music, and food,
and games, too!
Benji even came to the party!
We all had a nice time at the party, and got to meet the rest of the office and maintenance staff that we hadn’t met yet.
It was a really nice Christmas Party!
