Residents made prayer boxes just in time for the new year! It’s a cute little box where they can write down their prayers and let God do the rest. They blinged them out with jewels and ribbon. Adorable!

We ended last week with more holiday fun at Shoreview Senior Living’s happy hour. We played a dice game with a gift exchange, which was a big hit. Just when someone thought they had the best gift, someone could roll doubles and steal it! We ended happy hour by singing carols to keep us in the holiday spirit. In the evening, Incarnation Church came in to play candy bar Bingo with the residents. We are so grateful for their time and dedication.

The holidays are here, and Shoreview celebrated the season in style! Chef Holly, John, and their crew made a delicious spread of wonderful appetizers! There were bbq meatballs and wings, oysters and herring, and many delicious desserts. Residents were surprised to see Mr. and Mrs. Claus, who flew down from the North Pole. We believe that you are never too old to believe in the magic of Christmas. The smiles and joy live in each and every one of us. Santa's elves even followed to be sure everyone was having fun. We were so lucky to have Sue and Julie to play wonderful holiday music for us. From Winter Wonderland to Silver Bells, they made the evening extra special. We want to give a big thank you to EVERYONE who made the evening a huge success. It was heartwarming to see the residents and their families celebrate together. Blessings to all for a wonderful holiday season!

We started out the morning by singing some hyms before Mass. Later in the afternoon, we decorated cookies and everyone brought a few home for themselves. Maria wasn’t too sure what to do after she dropped a cookie in the green icing. I bet it was still delicious. Residents also learned to make scarves from recycled yarn. They made one special for Leo, the dog, too.

Residents enjoyed their manicures for our big holiday party! Trudi and Frank visited afterward to do a little sing-a-long. She brings out the joy in each resident. Trudi tried to get Kristy and Bernice to keep up with the 12 days of Christmas. It’s harder than you may think! In the evening, a group of girls from Incarnation Church came in to sing some carols in Garden Cove. They not only sang wonderful holiday songs but spent some quality time with the residents as well. It turned out to be a wonderful day!

Jill and Cathie joined us for a holiday tea party. Residents enjoyed some turkey and spinach croissant appetizers as well as holiday cookies. Their tables were all set, and everyone took home a little poinsettia treat made by residents last week. We had some wonderful Christmas music with songs like Silent Night and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. We all wondered who had been naughty or nice this year, but I think we have an idea!

Shoreview Senior Living was blessed with a visit from Kathy Martinez and her students, who put on a beautiful piano concert for us. The little ones were adorable and talented. Everyone enjoyed some Christmas cookies and engaged in some conversation. Some residents reminisced about their children’s music concerts years ago.

Tuesday afternoon, residents helped put together some gifts for caregivers, as well as some tea party favors for next week.

In the evening, we welcomed back the Children’s Performing Arts of Forest Lake. They put on a wonderful holiday-themed show for the residents. The kids did a great job, and we are so thankful for their time to spread a little holiday cheer. We are looking forward to seeing them again in April.

We took a trip to the American Swedish Institute. The Turnblad Mansion was built in the 1800s by a Swedish immigrant. Christmas at the American Swedish Institute is a special time with different rooms decorated in various Scandinavian traditions. The architecture and craftsmanship of the building were phenomenal to see. The tour guide brought us to each room and educated us about how things were accomplished in that time period.
Residents were very impressed. We enjoyed lunch in a conference room and then ended the trip by exploring the gift shop

Residents created stained glass paintings! From birds to pine trees to holiday candles, each piece was beautiful. Their paintings will bring the winter wonderland mood to Shoreview Senior Living.
