Last week at diaper gym we talked about having a Christmas party this year. We settled on Friday, December 17th - regular diaper gym time and location. I talked to the minister, and the 17th shouldn't conflict with any church teas or functions.
Last year one of the dads volunteered to be Santa, and we each brought a small wrapped gift for our own children for Santa to give. We put a $5 limit on the gift to keep it fair for the kids.
If we're going to do Santa again this year, we will need a dad, grandpa, or uncle, to volunteer to be Santa. If you know of anyone who might be willing to do this, please ask them and then let me know ASAP. We'll do Santa at 10:30am so we're not rushed, and will still have lots of time for cleanup.
We'll also need a Santa suit. If you have one, or know of someone who has one that we could borrow that would be awesome!! Again, let me know ASAP.
If we can't find these things, we'll still do a Christmas party, but without Santa.
This went over exceptionally well last year, so we're hoping to do it again!
The other thing we usually do is bring food and goodies to share. In years past we've had cookies, dainties, fruit, etc. If anyone wants to bring anything, maybe reply and let me know what you'd like to bring and we'll make a note of it just so that we don't have monstrous amounts of food. Not that monstrous amounts of food is a bad thing. But still. :)
Hope to see everyone this week. If you have any feedback or ideas for the Christmas party, let me know!
