This past Saturday night the annual Toys For Joys party was held in a new, larger venue. More than 600 men and women braved a snowstorm to bring gifts that will be given to charities that help make Christmas a little extra special for children in the area.
Thank you to everyone who posed for a picture and to Piper Jo Nevins Photography for letting me swipe a few of their event photographs for the T4J video.
With Christmas little more than a week away we are now receiving a handful of holiday cards each day from friends and family. We’ve yet to receive any of those ‘awkward Christmas’ photos but I keep hoping. Feel free to check out this collection of awkward Christmas photographs here.
On Saturday hundreds of men and women braved crazy cold conditions in Boston to run in the 14th annual Santa Speedo Run. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone. Much thanks to everyone who posed and shared their photographs.
Have you registered to attend tonight’s fundraiser / party, Toys for Joys? I hope to see you there. All the fun starts at 7:30 tonight. More information about this great organization and party can be found on their website, www.toysforjoys.org.

The 10th annual SoWA Holiday Market is this weekend (December 14th and 15th) from 12pm-6pm at the Ben Franklin Institute (41 Berkeley Street) in the South End; although strangely not in SOWA.
Come down to do some holiday shopping or just to check things out. There is a $5 admission to get in and peruse all the independent designers, artists and crafters displaying their wares.
