Any Poker playin' mamas in the house? Well if you can raise your hand (or a bet) to that, then you should come on out to one of our fabulous Poker nights with momstown! This was the fourth one so far and it didn't disappoint with the good food, great company and tonnes of laughter. The hostess insisted we "jazz up" poker night by making poker themed costumes mandatory. It was a fun spin on a great event which had us calling, raising, betting and going All In! Congrats to Miss Royal Flush on schooling all the mamas in poker and the outcome being a favorable "house win"!

... and isn't that fitting for this freezing cold weather we're having? momstown mamas and their kiddies got together for our weekly playgroup to take part in some fun themed crafts to chase away the winter cold. It was a great way to allow the little ones to run out their energy and beat the cabin fever we've all been apart of lately. Good times (as always) were had as we made mitten sun-catchers and the toddlers each took home a special treat of "Snowman Soup"!
Treats and playtime!
And if you'd like to make your own Snowman Soup, here are the directions:
-3 Chocolate Hershey kisses
-12 mini marshmallows
-1 package of Hot chocolate mix
-1 licorice stick
Package up in a ziplock baggie, put a ribbon around the top with poem (shown above) attached and stick in a cup or mug for the "soup" to be mixed in! Guaranteed to brighten someone's day!
Although it was a momstown meet up event, I cannot blame anyone for opting out of the Deep Freeze Festival today. Anyone who has lived in Alberta will know that snow storms like the one we're undergoing right now are normal and a part of life in this province. It takes time to get accustomed to the amount of snow we've got and to get the roads cleared around town.
The Winter Light events (of which the Deep Freeze Festival is just one of them) around Edmonton embrace all that is Winter here and we decided to get onboard and look Mother Nature in the face today by checking it out! With the hopes more momstown families would turn up, we had some great family fun on a horse drawn wagon, peeking through some ice sculptures, watching some street curling, sliding down ice slides, playing street hockey and warming up by the fire. Whether you come on out and join us or best Mother Nature with your own family activities, we're looking forward to more good times in 2011..... so far so good!
