My hospital unit's Christmas Party & Glacier makes his appearence, too!

We had our Annual Christmas Party on December 1st! What a way to start off the holiday season. There were about 30 of us and we all had a ball. It was potluck and we had some wonderful dishes...we all had very full tummys. One of our RN's held it at her house (2nd year in a row). And the spirits were flowing and people were merry. We all had our designated drivers, too! Every year I help plan the annual employee Christmas Party, since our management really doesn't do anything for 'US' the employees for our unit. This started about 8 years ago and I have been planning every since! All the people who showed up are just gems who I work with. We all really do feel like family...heck I spend most of waking hours with these people. We laugh, cry, bicker like family! We have all been there through the births, deaths, birthdays, marriages, divorces, promotions, graduations, name it these crew has been through it all!

We also do the 'steal a Christmas present Game'! It is a riot and we all love the challenge to steal! And WATCH out...people really get into this game! Lots of catching up and tons of laughter and making wonderful memories! Again, this year was a great turn out (bigger crowd) and better yet the memories that were made...priceless!
Tonight while I was getting ready to publish a post in my darling big fuzzface wanted to get into the act! So, I thought since most of you haven't seen my darling pooch, I would show him off tonight! In all his glory! My big ol'boy's name is Glacier! And he is 5 years old but acts like a 3 year old. He is an Alaskan Malamute, I bought him from a breeder up in Calaveras County, CA. He was the second runt in the 131 pounds I wonder what the alpha of the pack weighs in at? So, my blog friends here he is, with out further ado...Glacier!

Oh Robyn, he's adorable! I could just give him a big old hug!

Your party looks like fun! Isn't it a shame the upper echelon never feels the need to get into the Christmas spirit??
