Brooklyn's Christmas Party

Brooklyn really wanted a Christmas party this year. We were talking about it on a Monday and decided that Friday would be the best day, so it was a busy week getting things ready! She had 12 friends come. We made Gingerbread houses, and had a gift exchange.

I wanted to have the girls do something to get them thinking about something besides themselves. I had them each bring a t-shirt that we made into newborn hats for babies in Haiti for Mama to Mama that I had seen the week before. I showed the girls a map of Haiti and we talked about why we were doing this project. We ended up with 21 newborn hats!!

It was a fun party, and I am so glad that Mom stayed to help!! I couldn't have done it without her!!
