From way up north...

Sadly my big brother Ben could not make it home from Fairbanks, Alaska this Christmas. We missed him soooooo much. But he wrote an e-mail to my mom and I got a kick out of it. I think you will to. :)

Mother and Father, (and whoever else may read)

Thank you very much for all of the wonderful Christmas gifts.
They were all very much appreciated. Christmas morning here in
was graced with many little flakes of snow falling from the sky as I
heard the same was true of the Gig Harbor area. I had a very nice
Christmas dinner over at the Sr. Cox's. It consisted of green bean
casserole, lazy man potatoes (with the skins still attached to the
meat), glazed ham, crammed canberries, and some really good pinkish,
purple, slimey stuff (the stuff served every year in every household
universe-wide even on the planet mars, but no one (martian) really
exactly what it is but they eat it anyway because it's good) and of
course plenty of pies and cookies and other diabetic shock inducing
foods. I hope your Christmas was as fine as mine was, and I pray that
you have peace and joy as you ring in the new year. For those who might
be getting older don't forget to turn your hearing aides up so you can
actually hear the "ring".

With love,
(Benji in Alaska)

Starbucks Holiday Cheer Party

I just had my 6 month review at Starbucks (I can't believe it's been 6 months already!) and it went very well!

Every year our store has a Holiday Cheer Party for our customers. This year we had live music, crafts, face-painting and Santa even came for a visit. We are also doing a toy drive for the Starlight Starbright foundation. Everyone who brought in a gift received a raffle ticket and if their name was drawn they were able to choose a gift from our gift table to take home with them.

Sharon provided the live music.

The Majestic Pamm did her thing and sampled lots of yummy goodies both inside and outside to the cars in the drive-thru.

Ginger's lovely daughter provided the face painting. Everyone looked so cute!

Miss Patty brought the crafts for the kids to make ornaments.

And this is Nancy our District Manager with Santa! :)

And Libby belly-danced!

Here is video from the party!
