Baby it’s cold outside…

 

Baby it’s cold outside… but that doesn’t stop us from playing inside.  On January 15th and on February 26th, we went to the indoor playground at Cornerstone Church in Madison. The children had a fantastic time playing, running, jumping, sliding and climbing on this huge, enclosed jungle gym.  There was also a cafe downstairs where a few of us bought lunches and few others enjoyed lunches packed from home. If you haven’t checked this free space out, it is definitely worth the 30 minute drive to let your little ones play in this fun, large, exciting space!

Love filled the air…

Love filled the air at our monthly social where the children (moms) brought a decorated valentines box and we got to pass around love filled notes to each other.

The boxes were decorated adorably and the food was delicious.

It was a truly lovely monthly social.

Happy Valentines Day!

Merry Christmas!

“Ho-Ho-Ho and Merry Christmas,” exclaimed Santa at our December 11 Monthly Social.  A great time was had by all at this, our monthly meeting.  Not only did the fun include seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus, but we also got to make some fun holiday crafts, eat some yummy food and make holiday cards for children in the hospital during this holiday season.  If you are interested in checking out our monthly socials, they are usually the first Friday of every month.  Feel free to send us an email at bellevuemoms@yahoo.com to find out the time and place.  Thank you Santa and Mrs. Claus for taking time out of your very busy schedules to visit our club and thank you to the Bellevue Community Center for allowing us to meet at your welcoming facility.

Fall Field Trip Fun

We had such fun in November when we went on not just one field trip, but two field trips! On November 17th we visited our local Bellevue Post Office.  The kids got to go behind the scenes to see where the mail was sorted and they got to see a mail truck too!  On November 19th we visited the West Precinct Police Station.  The kids got to check out a police car and talk with real police officers.  A big thank you to our local Post Office and our local Police Station for opening your doors and letting our little ones enjoy a day in the life of a mail carrier and police officer.

 

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!

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 bigtent.com. We are always looking for hosts and more ways to get happy crafting!
