December is a month filled with reunions and get-togethers. Does the list of engagements include a dinner with your childhood or college barkada?  If yours is a little group of four or five mommies, it would be interesting to hold a festive afternoon party instead—with the kids!

  • Find out the ages of the kids expected to join the party to help you decide on the food to serve and games to prepare.
