I'll be your friend too! I need more IRL friends (in general) but especially MDC like-minded friends!

Hey, that's so exciting that you will be here so soon!! I'll totally be your friend! Our babies won't be that far apart in age, since The Wee is due in a few weeks.

And you never know, it could be not that cold around Th-giving, some years it's downright balmy still then...course last year I think we already had snow... but anyway...

Yes, Thanksgiving weather comes and goes. Sometimes it's snowing (last year it snowed before Thanksgiving and was actually absolutely beautiful), sometime it's just brown and barren and cool. October and November - fall, usually - is my favorite time of year here - November into December if we actually have snow, because everyone puts up their Christmas lights right after Thanksgiving, and they're prettier if there is actually snow! But I have lots of good memories of driving to my mom's house through the brown, cool landscape and listening to the annual broadcast of "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" by Arlo Guthrie on Cities 97 (on at noon, if you're interested...!)

This year I'm hopefully going to have a baby around Thanksgiving, how nifty that it's my favorite time of year!!

A great way to make like-minded friends is to visit the Parenting Oasis... if you're an outgoing sort, which I'm not, so I'm a bit of a wallflower whenever I'm there... I live fairly close by, so I should go more often. Alas.

There's a very strong traditional foods group in the area/state, too, if you want details on that, you can PM me.

Cograds on the new baby :

ftr- I am not knocking Minneapolis. We had the choice of taking a settlement after a house fire and moving. We gutted the house, rebuilt and stayed. Imo- St. Paul is just generally more family friendly, more laid back.
