January has almost blown by us, and so far it's been a pretty quiet year except for our Bingo group. Bingo is a huge part of our recreation here, and New Year's Eve was no exception. Peggy, our most recent newcomer, loves the game. She couldn't wait for our New Year's Eve "all night Bingo," and never imagined she'd actually be playing into the wee hours of the morning. However, here she is— still going strong when the game finally ended at 3 a.m.!
Our December was extremely busy as we heartily enjoyed a month of holiday traditions which our community holds near and dear. One of our favorites is a cozy afternoon frosting delicious Christmas cookies. Spending time with our families, including the little ones, and friends is what the season is all about!
Looking back on the holidays, our Secret Santas went above and beyond to make the arrival of "The Portly Man in Red" a memorable one. Mansfield's Nicole, certainly couldn't wait for him to arrive and was ready to jump right in and get things underway. Santa was running a bit late this Christmas Eve, but he did eventually arrive with a big smile and warm heart. It turned out to be a wonderful evening and joyous holiday season.
