Incriminating evidence

Yes, we did have a ball last night and YES, I did get incriminating photos but before I reveal….here is where we went…..

our local golf club was the setting and we were greeted with a forest of Christmas trees, Santa’s mailbox and a line up of reindeer.  A peek inside revealed a wonderful setting…

so much effort was put in by the organisers……and you knew we were still in North Queensland with the gecko climbing the wall (even though it wasn’t real….they’re everywhere!)

the table settings were wonderful….

as was the view out onto the golf course at sunset…..don’t you love the perfect purple sky that matches the Christmas decorations?  See….the organisers thought of everything!

And then …….Santa arrived…..(aka Mr Sugarlane)….

He divvied out presents and brought smiles to young and old….

Jolly ol’ St. Sugar……he was in his element, pillow, fake beard and all! (Don’t you just love those googly glasses gifted to one of our attendees?  If you look closely, they have 3D eyes on them…..hilarious when he looked straight on!)

I received a funky little feather pen….isn’t it gorgeous?

and before we knew it, Santa had gone………..and Mr S returned……in cognito, of course!

I must say we enjoyed the night immensely…with all the trouble and strife in the world at the moment, it was a pleasant ‘escape’ and brought our thoughts back to helping others through our fundraiser and turning our thoughts to the true meaning of Christmas all year through.
