SNOWMAN CHRISTMAS PARTY

We all know these girls love having a party!  So of course they were looking forward to our annual Christmas party.

This year the theme of our party was Snowmen.

I made sure to have the table all set up for them when our meeting started. 
 
Each place setting had a snowman plate and napkin and a little snowman figure that was used as a place card holder.  They could keep these and then put them out for Christmas every year.

There was also a snowman mug they got to take home to use with some hot chocolate they were also given.

A little snowman candy holder was full with hugs and kisses.

The centerpiece was a big snowman sitting on a bed of "snow" and two Christmas trees by his side.  Snow flakes also were laid out on the table.

I made goodie bags and had them sitting up on the bar area.  Each girl got a bag with a sparkly snowflake attached.  The bag was filled with little treats and gifts for the girls to enjoy. 

They also got a soft blanket with snowmen on it to cuddle up with on cold nights. 

There was a little bag with a snowflake cut out and a snowman on it that was full of candy they could snack on at home.

One of the little gifts they got from me was a snowflake coaster that had a picture of them from when they went Christmas caroling.

We had dinner first.  The excitement filled the air and they were all in a great mood and very happy.

At first we were going to have a pot luck dinner and each girl was going to bring something.

Then someone said they should have a spaghetti dinner with everyone bringing a different dish to go with it.

Then they said they wanted to get dinner and bring it in so they didn't have to worry about bringing something.

After checking with the parents to make sure it was OK with them, we went with getting a spaghetti dinner from a restaurant and bring it our party.

We got it from Haus of Pizza in Costa Mesa and it was very good.  Each girl got to pick if she wanted meat sauce or marinara sauce.  Garlic bread and salad rounded off the dinner.  They also had punch to drink.

After we ate and cleared off the table, they played Christmas Bingo. The winners all got a prize.  Of course, everyone won at least one game.

We made snowballs for dessert.

We took peppermint ice cream and rolled into a ball then put it back in the freezer to get hard again.  Once it was nice and cold, the ice cream was then dipped into melted chocolate (either milk, dark or white chocolate).

The chocolate then hardened up and they ate them.

Since everyone ate every bite, I will assume they were very, very good.

It was then time to open up gifts.  The girls had drawn names a few weeks earlier and they didn't tell each other who they got.  It was fun when they learned who got their name.

The girls were all thrilled with the gifts they got.  They turned out to be perfect gifts!

Liz got a bunch of bracelets, ear rings and a gift certificate from Charming Charlies.  Trinity knew just what she would love.

Verenice was very excited when she opened up her gift and found a darling Hello Kitty jacket from Nikki.

Diana gave Nikki cash!  Nikki said cash is her favorite gift!

Verenice gave Trinity a One Direction cosmetic bag and made her a cute little stuffed animal.  Trinity was very happy with her gifts.

All of the girls were very happy for their gifts but I don't think anyone was as thrilled as Diana.  When she opened up her present from Liz and saw it was One Direction books, she got so happy she cried. 

Everyone was so touched at the joy she felt.

Everyone was so happy and loved the party.  We all wished each other Merry Christmas and headed home.

I think 2012 was a very good year for Troop 746.  I'm looking forward to having as much, if not more fun in 2013!
