 Note: the hospital has limited the club to the number of members that they will allow to participating in hosting this event 
Arriving at Cook Children's, the outside is decorated differently this year - you are greeted by a large Santa 
 a large decorated Christmas tree adorns the round-about
all the light poles are decorated - not all are decorated the same 
 Santa's train was parked outside the main entrance 

  Inside the Hospital
The party for the children takes place behind the receptionist in the activities area ...with a new display for Santa this year
There were numerous elves sitting around Santa's display
The hospital catering staff brought in the snacks and beverages; these are just two of the trays.
 Blankets were removed from the sacks and placed ready for distribution 
Barb, Vicki, Gwynne, and Cindy along with other workers getting the craft tables ready.  They worked with the kiddos to complete the crafts
The rest of us worked to get the large boxes of toys opened up and put on display for the kids to choose from. 

Each child (patient or sibling) received one blanket, toy & stuffed animal plus refreshments
Larry was voluntold that he would be the photographer, using the hospital's polaroid cameras ...Becky & Doug helped him out too.
we took a group photo of our worker team ...before the kids started arriving
 there is a line of kids and we are waiting for Santa - along with us 
 Santa Claus
is a member of the Lone Star Santa Charities, Inc.  If your company or organization is looking for a Santa, check them out
There was time to grab a photo with Santa if you wanted one
 Note: due to confidentiality and hospital rules, we are not allowed to take photos once the party starts and the kids come in. 
 Some of us look forward to this event each year, to help bring smiles to the faces of the kiddos.  They (and their siblings) are unfortunate enough to have to go thru the issues they are here at this wonderful hospital for, especially this time of year.
 If you haven't had the pleasure of serving at this heart touching event, please consider it next time 

 afterwards a group of us enjoyed lunch at La Famila Mexican Restaurant - helped Bill Buehler celebrate his birthday
