Friday night was round one at Benihana with PPT where I treat kiddos in a clinic setting. (Thank you, Vanessa and Phil for hanging with the Brodster! You guys are the best!) PPT is a fairly young clinic so last year was the first Christmas party they hosted. Even though I wasn't employed with them last year, Jonathan and I were graciously invited to celebrate with them at Benihana. I interned there as a student, so I guess you could say they were hopeful I would join the team when I was ready to spend a short amount of time away from Brody and start bringing home some extra bacon. They were right. I started working for them just 5 months later. So last night was our second annual PPT Benihana Christmas party and it was better than the first. But, I guess you can't go wrong at an office Christmas party when you work with a BFF. ;)
Elf on the Shelf. Within 15 seconds of walking through their front door he was pointing and exclaiming proudly, "Alf! Alf!"
The directions seemed easy enough that I shouldn't have screwed it up. (Just place the candies on a baking sheet in the shape you desire. Bake at 250 for 5 minutes.) Oh well! So I brought a back-up ornament for the lucky new owner of my hand-made ornament.
Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was stirring,
EXCEPT for this mouse!
Again, I was blessed enough to work with another good friend (Nicole, far right) from grad school so that made the party even better! It's so great to work with friends!
I took some cute photos of Brody and all the other BPeds therapists' kids but I decided not to post them due to privacy. You're missing out though! ;)
So for now, the hubby and I are fighting to keep our eyelids open. We don't want to miss the lunar eclipse/winter solstice tonight. Is anyone else crazy enough to stay up all night and wait? I'm not sure I'm gonna make it. One eyelid is closing as I type...
