Hi everyone! December is creeping up quickly and we are only a couple weeks away from our Holiday party! We are so excited for this event & hope you are too.  I know we already did a post with the details and ideas if you are having a hard time thinking of a favorite thing to bring. Click HERE to visit that post!!
Here is a quick overview:

All of our child care slots are full
Spots are filling quickly but we have extended our RSVP date, do let us know as soon as possible!
Carpooling available for Davis County group members (Just let us know in your RSVP)
To attend you need to bring 5 of a favorite tool for your child. They cannot be over $6 each, can be homemade or something small that works for your family.
Please bring a refreshment to share.

Here are a few things that will be happening. Lakeshore learning is bringing the supplies for us to make phone number bracelets for our kids to wear (just in case!). They are also bringing some gift basket items to do drawings. We have free special needs gymnastic class passes for everyone for both a Salt Lake area gym & Layton area. Fun & Function has sent items to raffle and doTERRA has as well. So along with getting 5 items from other parents, each of us will get some fun bonus'.
We have limited spaces, so we need RSVP's ASAP! It is going to be so much fun and really useful as well. Jen, Chrissy & I are looking forward to seeing a lot of you. Please email or visit our facebook page to RSVP!!

Favorite Things Holiday Party

Utah Easy to Love Favorite Things Holiday Party.
Date: December 12
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm
Place: The Sharing Place
1695 East 3300 South SLC
Limited spot available!

Davis County - Due to the crazy of holiday we decided to do one holiday party and needed a location that could accommodate everyone and child care! If you would like to ride up with Lindsay or Chrissy please let us know with your RSVP, we will be doing pick ups at Learning Solutions. 

The Details: 
Pick a favorite special needs tool that you use, if you are still working on deciding what works & doesn't work for your child you can pick something that you want to try. It can be homemade, simple, store bought. Get FIVE of that item, remember it cannot be over $6 each! 

When you arrive you will put your name 5 times into a bucket (if you brought your items as a couple, put your name in as a couple as well!) Each person will get to explain what they brought and will then draw 5 names. Everyone will leave with 5 new tools to try with their kiddos. On top of the 5 things you get, we have been able to get some super great donations from  businesses that everyone will get, as well as some bonus' that we will be doing drawings for. 

If you are struggling coming up with some ideas, here are a few that are linked to our pinterest page. If you decide to do one on the list, let us know with your RSVP so we can cross it off the list! That way we aren't getting duplicates.
