Blue Christmas 2012

Friday, December 21, 2012

I have talked for months about Blue Christmas. This past Tuesday the 18th the party happened. It was great and these were some of the sweetest kids.


Me in the Blue, Tami (my friend) standing my Lt. Sharyn Cary at the sign in table



The Sheriff's Officer correction officers prepared and are now serving the food to our guests.



Some of our guest

This little one had to pet my face.


Some of my officers reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas"


I am letting the children know that Santa is arriving at the front of the building and rushing them out to greet him.


Santa, one of my sweet friends hubby, arrived in a patrol car with lights and sirens.


All the children bringing Santa back to the main room. While they were gone we have pushed all the packages forward and opened the curtains on the stage.


I call out each child's name and they come up to sit on Santa's lap and get their presents and a picture taken. The officers are standing by to carry all the presents back to the child's seat.


This was my only baby this year. Isn't she precious.


All the presents handed out. Chief is giving the closing address. We help take all the presents to the cars for the families. I am pretty satisfied in this picture.


My Sheriff Office helpers.


All of my folks.

It was a blessing and I heard back from some of my school councilors that they kids were so happy and had a great time. Now on to Blue Christmas 2013.
