Fun Filled Day For The Mom’s Club

Let’s start this ‘spooktacular’ month off with a Halloween party for our monthly social!

On October 2, 2015 we had a mission to have a ton of fun and naps may not have happened that day.  Costumes were worn of all ages, awards were given out to not only our members and their children, but also to the potential members and their children, decorations filled the room, balloons were stuffed with candy, and we also had a station for cookie and pumpkin decorating!


Later that evening, we did a fundraiser supporting our local heroes at our local fire hall. They run into the places that we all run out of without even thinking twice about it. Some have been burned in the process of saving lives, but that doesn’t stop them!

The Farmer’s Market of Bellevue graciously allowed us to have a booth. The wonderful members in our chapter baked a baked good or donated a few dollars we also had many local businesses donate to us as well. All of our proceeds are going to be given to our fire hall and to ‘Box 55’.

We ended our night with $547.00, but our community is so amazing that people continued to buy our leftover baked goods that weekend. Thank you, thank you, to all the wonderful people who helped us make our fundraiser a huge hit! Our chapter will be donating $716.00!


Sprinklers and popsicles bring out shiny summer smiles!

On Wednesday, July 8th we visited our friends at The Meadows. We listened to a summer story, read to us by the chaplain. We also had a blast running through the sprinkler and enjoyed eating delicious, refreshing popsicles.  At the end of our time at The Meadows we received balloons and a small treat. We had a splendid time at the sprinkler popsicle party! We love sharing summer smiles with our dear friends at The Meadows.


Crafty times make happy moms!

On Monday, July 6th we enjoyed getting crafty by making wooden growth charts. The wooden ruler we made will mark the passage of time and the growth of our children without messing up our walls AND it’s foldable too! This was a fun project that will be a memorable keepsake for years to come. If you would like to join the crafty moms subgroup, check it out on We are always looking for hosts and more ways to get happy crafting!


In the summer time, when the weather is hot…

What does the MOMS Club do in June when the weather is hot? We make busy bags! On Friday, June 5th for our monthly meeting, we met at Edwin Warner Park and had a grand time making busy bags. If you are wondering what a busy bag is, it is a bag with an age appropriate quiet learning activity for a child to complete with a parent present while traveling in a car or plane OR they can be used somewhere you need your child to be quiet and occupied (funeral, library, church, meeting, wedding, etc). Our members had such fun chatting and making these bags for their children! If you missed this fun event, feel free to check out the busy bag handout located in the files section on This handout has all of the information that was shared along with websites with more busy bag ideas to try making for yourself. If there is interest to do another busy bag activity, please let a board member know. Also, if you ever have an idea you think other moms would like to do, please share them with a board member. MOMS Club is all about Moms Offering Moms Support.IMG_5513

Sweet Spring…Sweet Strawberries!




On Friday, May 22nd we had a sweet time picking strawberries at Green Door Gourmet (located here in Bellevue). The children had a fabulous time picking strawberries and the strawberries that we picked were delicious! Green Door Gourmet was so kind to let us come after a few days of rain and needing to reschedule. If you haven’t checked out this local farm you are missing out on some delicious food! They have a store that sells fresh vegetables, meat, eggs and other locally made items. For more information visit

Free Cheekwood Day

On Friday, May 8th we visited Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art. We enjoyed our walk through the park checking out the treehouse, the garden scale train and the pond. We even got to hear some sweet music and giant bull frogs. We saw a hungry, curious turtle by the pond. This was such a fun morning excursion. Thank you Cheekwood for a free day. We enjoyed your beautiful art and fragrant gardens.


Lights, Sirens and Fire trucks…oh what fun!!!


The one house that is always open for a visit is the Fire Station. We visited the Bellevue Fire Station on March 30th. It was a beautiful day to visit this friendly place. We enjoyed touring the ambulance and the fire trucks. The fire fighters even let us go inside to see their kitchen and sleeping quarters. Our firefighters work so hard and are always available when we need them in an emergency. Thank you to our local firefighters for giving us an amazing tour, for being so welcoming of our group and for the hats, coloring books and stickers. We love our men in the red and white trucks and hope they can get a new firehouse soon. After touring their facility, it is evident that they need a new one and most certainly deserve it!


If you are a MOMS Club member and missed this fabulous field trip do not despair, we will visit again soon – just keep your eyes open to the BigTent calendar where we list all of our events. If you’re not a member of MOMS Club but would like to become one, please send us an email and we will gladly get you more information. Also, feel free to stop by the Fire Station anytime. The guys told us their house is always open for visitors and they enjoy especially giving tours to little visitors.
