'Twas the Day of Christmas Playgroup...

'Twas the day of Christmas Playgroup and all through our home
Quinn and I were getting ready for 8 sweet boys to roam.

We had crafts and snacks ready and the house looked nice and neat
We were counting down 'til four o'clock. Having friends over would be so sweet...

When what to our wondering eyes did we see?
8 moms and 8 boys hopping out of SUV's...

They had gifts and more snacks and their faces had big grins
What fun we would have even though our heads would spin...

Come in Tanner, Welcome Porter, Hi Sutton and Landon
Hey Reid, Quinn's here, Hello Hudson and Chapman...

Around the house! In the playroom! Down the hall they all played...
Painting hand prints, eating snacks, opening gifts...What a day!

Before we knew it, time was over...what fun memories we now share...
We're blessed to have such sweet friends...I know it's awfully rare...

So with new gifts in their hands, they all drove away..
Merry Christmas, sweet boys...can't wait 'til the next time we play!
***
The "craft stations" ready to go... Here are a bunch of the mommies and little guys making their little hand print scrapbooks...they turned out so stinkin' precious...

Group picture time..."Itsy Bitsy Spider" does its magic once again...
Gift time...mass chaos but so fun! Quinn wanted what EVERYONE had...and was right in the middle of it all!
Quinn loved Tanner's new BOZ book, but Tanner wasn't about to share...Quinn might take it for good if T wasn't careful! ... After our buddies left, Q had TOO much fun with his new box of instruments from Sutton...what a fun gift...

Thank you, sweet friends, for our super fun time at the party! You are truly precious!

The Christmas party was such a special time for Reid and I, and I'll always cherish all of our times together! Thanks for organizing it! The craft was so neat and I'll always think of our playgroup when I take it out each year!!! All the boys look so cute to me!

I second what Alli says - can I just link to yours from mine? Can you email me both of the moms/boys pictures? They both turned out so cute!
