Festival of Trees

Did you see us? Sophie and I were honored to be a part of the Larkin's Place at the Y tree display at the Junior League's Festival of Trees this weekend. We went today and Alexander had a nice conversation with Santa. It went much better than last year.
Poor Soph had rubbed her scab off of her nose in church and was a bloody mess. I really should have bought her those reindeer antlers on a head band.

Here's a look at the tree for Larkin's Place. This 'tree,' made of brightly colored pillows and items of different textures, was designed to be a sensory delight. Can you see who's in the photo to the left of the tree? Why, it's our good friend Larkin, Sophie, Mark Johnson, me, and new friends.

Here's the original image

This is the really cool poster with the line, Can you picture yourself here? Some of the people are yellowed out for effect. Can you guess which one is Soph?

That's right. Sophie was photographed with the great paralympian Jean Driscoll. (PLEASE read more about Jean HERE).

It was a great way to kick off the holiday season. Here's one last photo taken at the Y.
