The Hemispherectomy Foundation Christmas Party

After 6 months of hard work, creating a foundation, dedicated to children and families all over the world, it was time to finally celebrate. With our 501 (c) 3 status approved by the IRS, we had a really big reason to get together and PARTY !!!!!

Caren and John Jennings, our co-founders, and good friends. We couldn't have done it without their hard work and dedication. (notice the new Hemi Foundation lapel pins)

Kristi and me.

Jessie, the little one that inspired us all !!!

Jessie and Avery. (Jessie had a sleep-over at Avery's house on New Year's Eve)

Lindy and Jessie. Lindy runs the Accounting department for the foundation ! She IS the accounting department !

Caren and Traci. Traci is the foundation "Ask the Teacher", and also Jessie's tutor.

Here's two sweet little angels ..... Catherine and Meredith .

Mr and Mrs. Jay Stringer. Who have so generously donated to the foundation since the very begining with printing services and support.

Our talented Jen Steward.

Marina and her mom.
Some funny looking guy in a beard who thinks that he is Ean Anderson (Jethro Tull).

Jake playing Christmas music for the talent show.

Riley jammin' on his axe!

Matt playing a Christmas song.

Our new lapel pin! On sale now at . All proceeds benefit the Hemispherectomy Foundation.
It was a fun time for all. 2009 is going to bring amazing things to all the children and families who need support from The Hemispherectomy Foundation.
God Bless all of you! Cris
