Apples to Apples, Project Mommy Runway and an intro to Love Languages by the Rebers

We had such a lovely time at MOPS last week and for those of you who couldn't make missed a wonderful get-together. 

We began our evening with delicious apple crisp and following introductions, the ladies showed us their creative side by designing and creating lovely outfits for our mom's night out. 


Our judges were so much fun as they provided their constructive criticism and comments on each of the designs. Luany and Carrie...thank you for being such willing and wonderful models as you worked the runway.


Following the fashion show we moved onto a really thought provoking session with Bob and Luany who discussed word associations with us. They shared with us the importance of understanding your spouse' and children's love languages to help us communicate better.

We had pumpkin decorating with Miss Maria and story time with Miss Mimi and Miss Kerry! The moppets sure had a fun story time with these lovely ladies.

Jane ended the evening by showing us how to make different caramel apples like smor'e caramel apples and peanut butter caramel apples.
