Stephanie and KristenHello Mamas!
Fall is in full swing! 

We love this time of year; the leaves changing color, the cooler temperatures, the yummy smells of pumpkin, apple pies and cider, and of course football and Halloween!  It's a great time of year to slow down and look at the world through the eyes of our children. The joy on their faces when they jump into a pile of leaves, when they pick out their pumpkin, the excitement of getting their Halloween costume, and of course jumping in puddles!  As moms, we are so blessed that we can experience this joy and wonder all over again with our young children.  We pray that you will all enjoy the thrill of fall and that you'll have a fun and safe Halloween!

cookbookMOPS Cookbook to be Released in December!

The first ever MOPS cookbook will be available as soon as the Holiday Bazaar, Friday, December 9th! The following recipe, along with over 100 other treasured MOPS Mom's recipes will be featured in the cookbook. Proceeds from the sale of this book will also benefit our group. Now we're cooking!

Pumpkin Dip
(8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 C. powdered sugar
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
2 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
Beat the softened cream cheese with the powdered sugar. Gradually add the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and ginger. Beat until smooth. Refrigerate and serve cold. NOTE: This is cute to serve in a small hollowed out pumpkin. It can be served with ginger snaps, graham crackers, Nilla Wafers and apple or pear slices.

Moppets Update

Moppets is off to a great start this year with 90+ kids enrolled! A few reminders to help keep the program running smoothly:

- Moppets shifts: Please be on time at 8:45 (when we open). Drop off is a busy time and having you present goes a long way while staff are helping with check-in. If sickness or last minute changes come up and you are unable to work your shift, please reach out to others to trade shifts. Posting on our Facebook secret group is a great resource.

- Nursery (Middle and back): Please remember to put your child's diapers into a gallon sized zip lock bag with their name on it. Also label any other items your child takes with them (sippy cup or pacifier). We ask that parents hang onto coats, toys and other items to avoid mix ups. 

-Classrooms: Please remember to gather crafts and other items up upon dismissal.
