Book Club

Let's meet up for coffee and talk about this month's reading, NW by Zadie Smith.

I know some of you didn't get to finish the book (or maybe it's just me!). It was a  little longer than our usual picks and because it's a new release, the library only lets you check it out for a week. But no worries, we usually veer off topic anyway.

We hope to see you!

When: Wednesday, December 5, 2012. 7:00 to 10 p.m.
Where: Alterra by the lake.

It's a Cookie Swap!

Get out your favorite cookie recipe, we're having a cookie swap! This event takes place during regular playgroup hours on Tuesday, December 11th.

Bring a dozen and a half cookies to playgroup and we'll chow down while we play. Then we'll take some home!

We'll also do a special holiday craft for kids, so please be sure and respond to your evite. That way we'll have enough craft supplies on hand.

Here are some of my favorite cookie recipes...

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Looks interesting, but I haven't tried yet ...

I can't wait for this one!

Swiss Turners Open Gym

Preschool Open Gym at Swiss Turners is our next outing (Thursday, December 6th).

The kids had a blast last year running, jumping, bouncing. It's getting cold outside, so this is a great alternative to the playground!

Please check your evite for more information and as always, let us know if you aren't receiving them.

See you there!

Making Your Entrance

Hi Everyone! Please make sure you use the entrance on the east side of the church (it faces the construction site). The entrance on the west side will not allow you entrance to the second floor playroom from now on. 

Thanks for taking note of that!

Playgroup Hours

Hi everyone!

Just a gentle reminder about our playgroup hours. On Tuesdays and Fridays we meet from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Although parting is such sweet sorrow, we really have to be mindful of the church staff who work directly below our thunderous bunch.

So in an effort to be out the door by 11:00, we'll need to start cleaning up about ten minutes before. Thanks for your help!

And thanks to all of you who came to the Halloween party and helped make it a success. We had a great turnout!
