Santa's Helpers

Mix together a lovely group of fun filled, life loving floozies, assorted hats, delicious treats, Kendall's annual "surprise" beverage, generous doses of laughter and kind, loving, giving hearts and an annual Flamingo Floozie Luncheon takes place with fun had by ALL!!!
Thanks to the Lauren that stood in for our errant photographer. Tom had errands to run...hmpf
He generally hides out until he is called for the photo ops.

The hostess with the mostess (the Diva) and her partner in crime (the princess of quite alot)!

Since the Floozies are an extraordinarily blessed lieu of purchasing each other gifts we decided to purchase Christmas for a dear family... a single mom with two lovely very young daughters. Thanks to generous offerings of the Floozies and diligent shopping by the Princess of Quite Alot and the Diva, each child will receive a toy, several pairs of shoes, a winter coat and an extensive winter wardrobe. In addition, a gift certificate will be purchased for their Mother.


Let the wrapping begin!!! Santa's helpers busy boxing and wrapping the gifts in the Flamingo room.

A Very Happy Birthday to Rhetta (far right) ! Can you put your thumb here for just a sec! I was taking pictures and making gift tags.

All enjoyed watching Rhetta open her birthday gifts! Ellie looks like she wants a set of those!

More birthday festivities! The Diva played the stereo this year instead of her beautiful piano!

Sometimes a picture is worth more than a thousand words! We all lead such busy, diverse lives but we come together in the spirit of fun, friendship and giving.

Our friend Bonnie had another committment and could not attend...we missed you!

A moment was shared by several of us remembering our dearly departed Dot Dot...she would have loved this party the best!!!

May each of you be blessed with gratitude, love, and friendship this holiday season.

Awww, how kind of you and your friends! Once upon a time, my Mom was the single one and I was one of the young girls... it was a tremendous struggle and we would have appreciated you guys and your generosity so much, as I'm sure your chosen family will too.

I hope you are feeling better, Connie, this is a lousy time to be sick! Warm wishes from me to you (blows you a kiss).

What a fabulous, fun-filled, FLOOZIE afternoon with wonderful friends. I think we enjoyed being 'Santa's Helpers' immensely and will continue the tradition. We are all blessed beyond measure with the treasure of true friendship...Thanks for 'blogging' this special event...

Wow, that brought tears to my eyes, Connie, seeing all the fun you had spreading goodness in this season, celebrating your abundance in such a generous way.

Thank you for sharing that.

(And hey ... wait ... do you have little red velvet horns on your head? LOL! You must be the NAUGHTY elf, if I'm not mistaken!)

I'm so impressed with you and your sister floozies. You truly "walked the talk" with your generosity and mega dose of Christmas spirit.
