 K-W, Camb, Guelph & Area Halloween GTG

  1 2   
Thought I would start this early to see how much interest there would be.

I'm happy to host at my house again. I figure it would give us an excuse to dress our LO's in their halloween costumes.

So here's what I propose:

Either Wednesday (October 28th) or Friday (October 30th)
My place
btwn 1pm and 4pm
potluck (bring snacks) I'll provide drinks.

Similar to last time.

So, who would be interested????

I think the Wednesday Oct. 28th would work better for most. I might actually have some April Mommies from GTA area come as well.

Would 11 - 2pm work better or 1 to 4pm?

Dress the kiddos in costumes
Bring some halloween treats. (List what you'll be bringing so we don't have duplicates)
If you have any other ideas of activities, let me know. I'm sure we can arrange something.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. I'm going to have to run out and find a costume for Sabrina. The one I was borrowing doesn't fit her. Hopefully I can find somethign cute for cheap! Any suggestions?

Thanks! I ended up finding an outfit on Kijiji and the girl lived around the corner. She felt bad because it had a tear and she couldn't find the shoes she had for it, so she gave it to me for free!!!

Maybe we can all discuss what we'll be bringing.
I plan on making skor squares.

Hi ladies,

I'm thinking of joining you for this GTG, if you'll have us! Unfortunately, I'm without a car most of the time, so I need to negotiate with DH to use the car that day. Plus ODS is usually napping in the afternoon.

BUT I'd love to meet some of you and just get out of my house, haha.

I'll chat with DH and let you all know.

The food is mainly for the mommies because most babies are too young. I'll have rice puffs and such for the little ones.
Any kind of snack or treat or dips and chips or whatever works. See you there!

I won't be able to make it after all ladies. DH is working longer hours this week trying to get a job done for work. The hours he's been working lately, if he takes the bus in, he won't be able to get home and it'll be too late for the little ones for me to go get him.

I'm bummed, I was looking forward to meeting you all. Hopefully there will be another GTG soon!

Enjoy!

Hi guys,

I think I have to cancel. Evelyn's been sneezing a lot yesterday and now this morning and I'd hate for her to pass on some sort of cold she may be fighting. She doesn't have a stuffy nose or anything but she is pretty sneezy.
I was so looking forward to meeting you guys and seeing the babies in their costumes.

As for us, we're still planning on being there - cookies are made and ready to go. For those attending, what will your LOs be dressed as? Jolene will be a Flower (from Children's Place).
