A Staff Merry Christmas

Our annual Casa de Amor Staff Christmas party!

All the Bolivian CDA I, II, & III staff, even our beloved speech therapist Mercy (oh, and me!)

Our administrator/social worker and accountant are missing, currently traveling to visit family...they were missed!!

Our current "gringas": Chelsey, Alexis, Katrina

Casa de Amor III staff: the Mitchell family, Tia Ana, and volunteer Katrina (aka Housemom when Mitchells traveled)

Buffet Lunch!

Sweet tias enjoy lunch while a slideshow of our nativity scene pictures and Christmas music play in the background

Even though we had to economize this year with our "canastones" - gift baskets (a Bolivian tradition) - I was pleased with how full (and heavy!) they turned out

Handing out the gift baskets with office staff Maria & Carmen
It's a special joy to get to bless these beautiful women (and Tio T.J.) who work so hard night and day giving their all to our children! Merry Christmas and many blessings!!
