As Robin Roberts continues her recovery from her September bone marrow transplant, she received a healthy dose of holiday cheer from her “Good Morning America” costars.

The “GMA” elves visited Roberts, 52, last Thursday at her apartment, where they helped her get into the holiday spirit, which isn’t too hard to do since her spirits are high, thanks to her successful ongoing recovery.

Donning Santa hats and Robin’s beloved green froggy slippers, George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion, Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer helped their pal decorate her Christmas tree, opened presents and sipped some (spiked) punch.

“Best medicine ever!” Roberts Tweeted of the visit, footage of which aired Monday on “GMA.” “Reunited and it feels so good!” she added.

It looks like there may have been some dancing involved too (thanks to the spiked punch?).

“Still beaming from @GStephanopoulos @SamChampion @LaraSpencer & @JoshElliottABC visit. Who knew George moves like Jagger?! You’ll see @GMA,” Roberts later Tweeted.

Roberts also says she’s looking forward to the next step of her journey — “returning to work” — even the challenging parts of it, like waking up at 3:45 a.m.

No return date was mentioned, however.
