'09!!!????
Crazy.
I know people are probably recovering from holiday-ness but if people are up for meeting on Monday I'd be happy to host.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!

/Jojo--where are you doing the henna? I mean, who's doing it? Lena wants to do it so badly.... I was thinking of ordering a kit, but maybe the good seed has it?

i'd be up for it monday. i need a little bit of normal after travelling. we just got out of the car juuuuust now.

and while i was gone, some bananas turned into perfect banana-bread-bananas, so that's probably what i'll be bringing regardless of theme.

Sweeeeet!! The henna is on for tomotrrow so I'll have a perty belly on Monday: A friend of mine down the street does henna. If any of you have eaten at India on a Saturday night and seen a lady doing henna, that's her

Oooo, I hope LJ comes too. I really want to meet Aya!

Ethan has been driving me nuts and the boys won't get off the darn Wii. I'm so close to throwing it out the window, literally, it's ticking me off:

Hey,
I'm planning on coming. I was thinking of getting there at 10 (if that's not too early) since I have to pick Aidan up at 11:45.
Can't wait to see everyone!

Amazingly, I think that we are actually coming! (Albeit, on the later side. But still...)

Because the likelihood of me actually cooking anything before then is just about zero, anyone have any yummy requests from my good neighbor, the Seven Stars bakery??

It was so great to be back at playgroup again and to see everyone!!! Thanks so much Sarah for having us all

After the informal poll I took, it looks like everyone was agreeable about coming to Tiverton for Thursday so I get to host - yay!!! For anyone that needs directions, feel free to send me a PM. I'll reply ASAP.

I'm thinking chile con carne made with some nice local grass fed beef. Does that sound good?

Yes, thanks Sarah!

I am sooo sorry Shalone, but i am backing out of tomorrow And I swear it's not the distance (well mostly not).
We are having Aidan's first ever birthday party on Saturday and I am seriously freaking out. The house is messy, I making almost all the food, nothing is done.... I'm glad we're doing it but it feels like there's a lot to do.
I will miss you all. See you on Monday I hope.

Looking forward to tomorrow....
I told Noah yesterday that "we're going to Sam's house on Thursday" and every time we've gotten in the car since then: "we're going to Sam's?"

I'm so sad, I just realized that I have a midwife appointment on the Thursday of the Children's Museum. We won't be able to go My husband took Sam there this morning so I could sleep in. He said they had a great time. Sam was just running all over the place playing with stuff like he owned the place. He's now been napping for a little over 3 hours!

BAD NEWS ladies - I have to cancel Monday! :
Gabe, DH and now I all have a TERRIBLE GI bug and it dosen't look like a 24 hr thing. I don't want any of you to get it so I have to pull out from hosting tomorrow. Im so sorry and I'm so dissapointed. Hopefully you all can find a place to meet anyway. We will try to make Thurs... we'll see.

Mehera had offered to do tomorrow too. So I just called her and she said she can do tomorrow (maybe Stephanie can do next week if everyone is feeling better?). Mehera isn't sure what she has in the house food-wise- just an fyi.
Pm me for her address- she isn't sure if she'll be able to get online.
See everyone tomorrow.

I hope you feel better, Stephanie. How awful!

Hi, It looks like we will be missing Mondays for a while. The art class that Sam is going to be taking is only on Mondays and Fridays and since I work during the day on Friday - Monday is my only choice. So, we will see everyone, the week after this one on Thursday... Hope everyone has a nice week!

Stephanie, I hope you and your family get well soon!
