Me! Me! :-)

I would be up for a MNO (or in) sometime. Unfortunately for us, right now anyway, this kind of outing is cost prohibitive for me. :(
I'll host a gathering at my house sometime in October. We've had so much fun doing that in the past. And the kids are welcome to join us. It'll be on a Saturday afternoon. Hope you'll be able to join us then. I don't have the particulars settled. But, will post it next week sometime.

I had so much fun last night. I never knew fondue could be so much fun. Definitely think we should host a fondue party.
I love this idea for moms only. But, with little people dipping and dripping, it sounds a bit chaotic. LOL

Do folks want to do a playdate with kids on the last Saturday in October w/wo lunch? Or maybe we could do the MNO for December as another fondue party? I'm happy to host either or both.

Either, or/ both, they all sound good to me. I like the fondue party with just the ladies. It woud be a nice break around the holidays.

Oh my gosh, I read Pat's post and just envisioned Shannon dripping with chocolate from head to toe! LOL

If you are willing to host a playdate in October on a Saturday, I think it would be great if we publicized it as a family event and encouraged the Dads to come. My husband really needs to make some friends! Its harder for men when you move to a new place, since they aren't out with the kids during the week, meeting other families. His only friends are at work and now he works at home.
Last night was great.

The December fondue sounds fun. The vision of kid's dipping does sound a bit scary 0n a large scale:)

We might be able to make a family Saturday gathering but my oldest isn't big on crowds, so we'd play that by ear.

Ok, let's say Saturday, October 25th at noon? Bring your lunch, or want to do potluck? Family gathering/playdate.

Hi Pat,

OK, I am trying this out for the first time, lets see how it works! Thanks so much for offering to host a family gathering. We are already committed that day (Oct 25) to go to the Balloonfest in Mooresville, sorry we'll miss it, especially because I would love for my husband to be able to come too and meet other dads. Maybe we can do another in November?

And the fondue for the moms sounds great!

Hmmm...I think we'd like to go to the Balloonfest in Mooresville too! I'll have to check that out.

Ok, I just typed a long note and the Internet gremlins ate it!

Short version. Balloonfest is F,S,S at 4:30 for mass launch. So, we'll probably go on Sun. Thanks for the tip. http://www.carolinaballoonfest.com/

My Nov. calendar is busy with a similar homeschool family gathering at our house on a Saturday. (Maybe/wannabe homeschoolers welcome too. ;-))

I wondered about a trip to "Dish It Out", the pottery painting studio? Maybe before the holidays? http://www.dishitout.net/default.asp They have group discounts. Could be with or without kids.

Also, Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens are magical during the holidays. Maybe we could do a group trip?

Other suggestions, outings or ideas for mom's gatherings?

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.
