Everyone can either bring a crock or fondue of something to dip, or bring dipping fruits, vegetables, bread, etc. Post below what you'd like to bring, just a general 'cheese dip', bread, etc.

Also, send me an email if you need our address and directions.

I would love to get together and meet some more folks...but, (in response to your email), yes this is a very busy time of year. I hope to be more involved come January. I like the idea of any sort of get together for celebrating the new year then.
Have a happy holiday season!

The potluck in January sounds good.
Jan. 10 would work best for us. Not sure about the rest of the stuff you asked.

Busy, busy time of year for us too. I like the family get togethers, but I also enjoy a moms get together every once in awhile too. I'm just not as active at night (I'm sounding like a squirrel), what I meant to say is days are better for me for get togethers since I have a little one that really likes mommy around at night!
Unfortunately I'm not available for either the meeting date 12/17 or 1/3 or 1/10.
I guess we have a busy couple of months!

But I hope you all have fun!

I might be able to come 12/17. a friend of mine is flying in that day, and you all would love her, i would bring her, but i'm pretty sure she is flying on standby that day and i have no idea yet what time she's coming.

I think I'm free the other 2 dates - we might have family coming, but I would either bring them or leave them home with my husband!
I'm not big at going out at night this time of year. I tend to become a hermit in the winter. But anyway on the weekends I'm up for anything, with family or leave kids home with dad. I have family coming in January but not sure when. I'm sure I won'tknow until January. The ILs don't like to tell us their plans until right before.
Hi Pat,
Thanks for organizing everything, and offering your home for a gathering place. I would definitely be interested in meeting at Earthfare or your house on the 3rd Weds for a holiday gathering. I could bring dessert or wine. If its evening I think moms works great, if a weekend day, it might be nice to include the whole family. I have missed seeing everyone and would love to have the opportunity before the holidays or after...I will get better about checking this site and seeing whats going on!
Ok, how about this.

I am going to be at EarthFare on Wednesday, Dec. 17th, 7:30pm with bells on. I'll bring a dessert and wine. Do you all want to come too?

Also, Saturday, January 10th, 12-3pm, we'll host a family potluck to celebrate the new year!

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
