An Evening With Mom

Tonight was a night of celebration. It was the Christmas dinner for residents and their families at the center Mom has been moved to, and a celebration of her being back home.
The Regency knows how to throw a party! The evening started with shrimp cocktails, an assortment of cheese balls and crackers, and bread baskets.
The main course consisted of prime rib, asparagus, and real mashed potatoes. Pies were served for dessert, along with a wide choice of beverages.
However, getting to spend time with Mom, was the highlight of the evening for Ken and I,
and my sister Marlene.
There are 18 decorated trees, here we are in front of the one located in the Pub, where we sat for our dinner. It's estimated 400 people attended, with tables everywhere!
We were entertained by a wonderful pianist and vocalist.
And as the entertainment went on, Marti took Mom to the floor for a dance.
Mom loved it. So did those in the room. It was such a nice time, we hated for the evening to end. But with her only being a couple miles from our home, I'll be visiting almost daily. It's so good to have Mom back!
