Nov. and Dec.

Hello everybody! Here are the playdates and MNOs for the next two months. I'm trying to keep it lite because of all the other things that the holidays bring. Also, I'm sure a new date or two will come up that I will share as they come. Have a great holiday season and hope to see you at some of these events.



Monday, Nov. 9th- Seigel Soccer Park- picnic and play --12-1:30

Tuesday, Nov. 17th- Toy Swap - adults only- 6:30 - Bring toys you want to pass on or no longer want and we can swap and trade for others' toys. Great idea to get rid of some toys your child(ren) no longer play with and get new ones that they would like. Other people's toys are always better! :) Any leftovers, I will try to get a donation center to give them to.

Tuesday, Nov. 24th- Discovery Center - 10-noon


Monday, Dec. 14th-- 6:30- 8:00-- MNO (Moms Night Out)- cookie swap--I'll host a party at my house. Bring 4 dozen cookies, 12 copies of the recipe, and a large tupperware to take cookies home.

Friday Night Plans

Hey everyone! Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Fall weather! I made a mistake when I sent out the first email for October play dates. The trick-or-treating on the square is FRIDAY from 3-6 pm. It is fun and several people go. If you want to meet up as a group, meet in the grassy area by Shacklett's photography on the square at 4. Then, head on over for more fun at the church at 5:30 (or when you can) for food, fellowship, and a movie or two for the kids. Just bring a dish to share, the whole family, and feel free to invite any others that would enjoy our company. We will eat in the Fellowship Hall and watch a Veggie Tale movie or two in the youth wing on the big screen!
