Sears Coffee Group Christmas Party

In 2001, a bunch of us ladies met at a Breast Cancer Support group. We’ve been meeting every two weeks for coffee for nine years. We call it the Sears group because we used to meet at the Sears cafeteria.

Last night we had our annual Christmas get-together at J’s home. All six of the ladies are breast cancer survivors and were there and of course Ari, our mascot, who was all decked out in his Christmas attire. He sure is a handsome fella ... don’t you think?

We all brought a little something for the meal but to be honest we all waited anxiously for the ‘piest de resistance’ which is Erm’s dessert. Each year she does an amazing dessert and this year was no exception. She made a Yule Log ... oh so delicious. After stuffing ourselves, we moved to the living room to open the gifts we exchanged. I gotta tell ya ... the girls sure are creative in their giving.

What a pleasure it is to be a part of this great group of gals.

Yule log, yum. I was just about to make one for a group of ladies that have been getting together for 30 years-a postpartum support group (babies have babies thmselves now). Unfortunately out of the 5 ladies, 3 have or had cancer.-
These groups mean so much to us, right?

Friendships are such a wonderful blessing, and even better when shared over Christmastime and tasty treats! Enjoy the wonderful times with your buddies!
