Snowball Prep

December 14, 2015

Snowball was this evening. But I am not going to write about what happened tonight. I am sure all the other gloggers will cover the event itself. I want to talk about the preparations for the event.

We go a little crazy decorating for snowball. We put somewhere between 175 and 200 man hours into decorating the gym in the week leading up to snowball. Over the weekend, they go out and cut 75-80 firs and birches. We then stand them, hang lights, make snowbanks, set up the disco ball, hang a grid and many paper snowflakes, and many more little details. We turn Bingham Gym into a winter wonderland for the evening.  The Rugrats spent last Tuesday and Wednesday working to make the gym look great. I wanted to share a few pictures of the set up, and a few pictures of the preparations that went on this afternoon.
