MOPS Decade Themed MOMS Night Out

We sure had a blast at the decade themed party last night. It was so neat that no one dressed alike. We had 1900's (Sara), 50's(Janet), 60's(Leslie, Kim and Hana (correction)), 70's(Julia), 80's(Morgan and Katherine) and 90's(Joanna) decades represented. We even played music from most of those decades. 1900's music was hard to find. We had great food and great coversation. Thanks Morgan for hosting.
