Are you in or near the Twin Cities?<br>
Do you want to be?<br><br>
Well, then you have found your tribe! Despite our diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and interests, two things bond us together: living in the coldest state on earth...and the love for our children which warms us. The weekly tribe thread begins anew each Saturday. Watch for the new thread on the main Minnesota/Wisconsin board.<br><br>
Some of the individuals who post here meet weekly. If you are interested in attending a get together, please post your interest on the thread or send any one of us a PM. We welcome with open arms and minds the input of all parents, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, political view, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, etc.

Addition:<br><br>
We are currently looking for donations for the silent auction. We have a wide range of people who are attending, from mamas to birth community to skydivers and other friends and family. Anything that you have to contribute would help Gretchen and Max greatly. The holiday season is around the corner, and we would love to have many great things for people to bid on!<br><br><br>

Hi Mamas,<br>
It's been a while since I checked in, here or at SG. Too much going on, mostly happy stuff, thank goodness. Tabitha is thriving and dh and I are enjoying the ride.<br><br>
Right now we are looking for a dentist. Tabitha won't be going for a while yet, but the grown-ups need a new one, and we'd like to all go to the same one. So, does anyone have a recommendation for a kid-friendly, night-time-nursing-supportive dentist? Hopefully located not too far from South Minneapolis?<br><br>
Hope all is well with you and yours,<br>
Caitlin

ChrisAnne WAVE! Danielle told me she saw you. KEWL!<br><br>
Paula thanks for posting the Fundraiser info. On that note, I am making bottles of my infamous KAYJAY salad dressing. So anyone who wants a bottle, for sure, let me know, so I know how many to make. For right now I am making 10 32 oz bottles at $7.00 a bottle. 100% will go directly to Gretchen and Max.

The dressing contains Braggs Amino Acids (healthy soy sauce) Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil, Garlic and Maple Syrup for sure. It may contain mustard of some sort and jam, chutney or hummus. Depending on where the spirit leads me that day.<br><br>
Speaking of hummus, Should we have a hummus making party and make like 5 gallons to sell at the Benefit? DoulaSarah and I have a great recipe? Doula wanna make it at your pad or mine? Sounds like fun and it can be frozen.<br><br>
I am donating these shoes below and 100% will go to Gretchen and Max. Stride Rite Shoes, NWT, $10 ppd, retail $36, 2W (3), sz 2XW (2), 2 1/2W (2) 3M (2), 3W (4),3 1/2M (1), 4N, 4W,<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v84/kaje62/Angel/DSC00663.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

We can certainly make the hummus either place, although you have a lot more containers that are the right size. I will take a couple of bottles of your wonderful dressing too.<br><br>
The hummus rocks!! (I got all of the garlic ones!!)

I'll take a bottle of dressing, KJ... and mmmmmm hummus. I plan on making some cookies and possibly something else, but it really depends on how bad this week is at work. I'm looking at about 55 hours or more. Blech.

Nice to see you, too!<br><br>
I'm trying to round up some more stuff to donate to the benefit.<br>
California Pizza Kitchen (where I work) is making a super awesome donation, so bid generously! They are also going to hand out flyers for a certain day (not yet decided on), and people who come in and eat that day and bring one of the flyers will get Gretchen and Max 20% of the proceeds. Not much unless all y'all come in and eat! It will be the Maple Grove location, which is kind of a bummer distance wise, but thats ok!<br>
If you haven't been to CPK, the food is yummy. I've been there for 2.5 years and still love it and never tire of it!

Danielle hope you work that night so you can wait on us all. sounds fun.<br><br>
We are making hummus here tomorrow. Sarah had to cancel but Autumn R. and Elaine Rose plan on coming. Chris we would love to have you and anyone else.<br><br>
Please keep Jerry's uncle Ronnie in your thoughts and prayers. He had a massive heart attack a few days ago. The day before the anniversary of his father's (Jerry's grampa's) death. He is doing better at present.

Danielle you are too funny on the ddcc thingy.<br><br>
LOL!<br><br>
So Danielle treated me to dinner at CPK and I ordered a salad with fat free dressing cuz I had like no Weight Watcher points left. And I kept asking for onions, balsamic, and can't remember what else. And when I finally liked it I was full so I did not eat and I think the waitress was like wow she is hard to please. Danielle you sure you want me to come to the fundraiser and wait on me?
