Thanks for coming over today! It was a lot of fun. I had my camera out and totally forgot to take any pictures. If anyone else took some, share them if you have a chance. Also, a pair of sunglasses were left behind. If you're missing yours, leave a comment and I'll bring them to the Ward Halloween party or to church on Sunday.

Fabulous Friday!

Hey guys. This is just a reminder that Fabulous Friday is the Friday the 17th at 6:00. I am in charge of the Desserts so I was hoping that some of you could bring one. We are also in need of a few other things. We are needing : Powerstrips, glue guns, extension cords, scissors, and a few sets of measuring cups!!!! We have a lot of crafts and need some help with these items. If you can bring anything please let me know. Also just a few tips for the night, remember that we are painting so wear appropriate clothing. And some people have said newspaper for painting on isn't the best, but that is all we can afford, so if you would like to use wax paper, which we have heard works well, please feel free too. Also if you bring any of the other stuff please remember to label it so we can make sure that it gets back to the right person. Thanks in advance for all your help. Anything will help!!!!

Invite your friends and neighbors, this is going to be WAY fun!

In answer to a few questions:
Yes, have your kids wear costumes.
No, I don't know the cost yet....I want a close to final count before I buy supplies.
Yes, please bring cash or check to the party..... I will keep it cheap, and let you know a day or so ahead.
Yes, if you would like to help I need a parent in each group to "Take Charge" of each room as the groups go through....There is no prep work. Just the desire to have control!!
Ok. I think thats it.

halloween party

Hi everyone! I know I don't come to playgroup much, the timing has been off for us, but I would love to have a kids' Halloween party at my house again. I thought the one last year was really fun. We decorate our house from head to toe and we even have our backyard finished now, so more room to play. Comment about what you think! I thought any time, any day, that week of Halloween would be great.

Hi Everyone!

I'm currently trying to plan out our Playgroup for the remainder of October. I know in the past we've always had Playgroup on Wednesdays and Fridays but Wednesday's Playgroup conflicts with storytime at 11 am at Town Square.

How does everyone feel about switching our Wednesday Playgroup to Monday or Tuesday instead? That way, for those of us who enjoy going to the Town Square Storytime (I know my little boys love it) can still go on Wednesdays without missing Playgroup. Or we could have Wednesday's Playgroup later in the afternoon so that the moms with kids in school can join us as well.

Let me know what you all think. I'm just throwing the idea out there . . .

(FYI: For this week, we are planning on Story time on Wednesday, October 8th at 11 am at Town Square. Bring a lunch for a picnic afterward. On Friday, October 10th, we'll meet at the Nevada Trails Park at 10 a.m.)

Wednesday Playgroup, October 8th

Since a lot of us didn't get to go to the story time at Town Square last week, I thought it would be fun to go again this Wednesday. It's 11 a.m. at Town Square. Bring a lunch for a picnic on the grass afterward.

See you then!
