Mamatoga Daily: Friday, Dec. 23rd

Here is the Daily for Friday Mamatogians plus one event for Saturday. We hope everyone is having a Happy Chanukah, and if you're still finishing up your Christmas shopping I'm in the same boat! I think I'm just procrastinating because I loathe wrapping gifts, no matter how much I love Washi tape...Don't forget to vote for the Mamatoga Moms and Kids Choice Awards 2011, time to vote is almost up! All of our polls can be found here. We've updated our School Break Survival Guide and will continue to do so to prepare you for the week off from school! Have a great night mamas!
