AMO's Winter Wonderland Party

Our Mommy group just turned ONE last Saturday.  Sure we've had mini play dates before, a few mommy meetups and a lot of first birthdays attended but this is the first time that the entire group got together to celebrate one year of friendship.

Avenue for Mommies Online (AMO) started as a small group of mommies supporting each other in our journey through motherhood.  The only thing that changed is our size.  From a measly group of at least 20 members, we grew into a community of 70 mommies all over the Philippines.  We are a group of working moms, army wives, stay-at-home moms, work-at-home moms, full time moms and bloggers.  So it is very exciting (and challenging) to bring everyone together.

The party that started with a brainstorming, a lot of support, a whole lotta love and a combination of all mommy powers materialized into one great event - the AMO Winter Wonderland Party.

Aside from the beautiful snowflakes suspended from the ceiling, one could not help but notice the Mommy Loots and the Raffle Prizes from our AMO moms and beloved Sponsors.

Of course, no party would be exciting without the games. There were games prepared for the Mommies, Daddies and the Kids.

Everyone went home with loots and prizes from the games and the raffle.  Our mommy group has been blessed with so many generous sponsors.

To my AMO family, Thank you for your gift of friendship.  We have a lot to look forward to in the future.  A lot of plans and more activities.  But for now, we will be sending off more than 30 dozen slippers to the Children of Negros.  After all, this is what the party is all about -- sharing.

Happy AMO moms and kids (thank you AMO daddies for taking our picture)
