momstown Holiday Party

The previous Saturday we had our 1st Annual momstown Holiday Party. It was great to see so many of our members come out who I haven't seen in some time. I have been working on the party for some time but this time Santa sent me some helpers so I was able to enjoy a lot of the party. We had crafts, music, a potluck, trivia, prizes, a dance party and a visit from Santa! Not to mention some great company and lots of laughter and happy kids running around!

I had some homemade gingerbread playdough for the kids to play with. I also made a Christmas playdough using peppermint and coloured it green. By the end it was all one big ball of nutmeg, cinnamon and peppermint, but still smelled good!

We had a potluck and had a great variety of healthy snacks......  cookies are healthy right? Well the veggie platter balances it out!

Santa came by for a visit. The kids loved him! He even danced with us to some Christmas tunes!

In some cases moms loved Santa more then the kids. There may have been the odd tear too. Is it bad that I love these photos the most?

What's a Holiday Party without a Christmas Tree! Thanks to Santa's little helpers for setting this up for us!

Here's Santa again! The kids just couldn't get enough of him.

The generosity of our moms just continues. We had a collection going for our 2 families for the Christmas Cheer Board. We also had a collection going for The United Ways Koats for Kids.

What's a party without a little gift. Santa left each family some Reindeer Food to take home. You must remember to feed them too. Everyone leaves milk and cookies for Santa but forget about his helpers. They need fuel to fly around the world that night. Click here to see how you can make this Reindeer Food at home.

Thanks to all of Santa's helpers for helping make this event a success! Happy Holidays!
