love conquers all

Sally has been trying to gain the affections of Buddha the cat (aka. cheeseburger) since we moved in. Up until now Buddha has always run away... but Sally has been persistent and now her efforts have paid off. I think soon we'll find them spooning. Sally won't quit until she is as snuggled up as in the pic with my sister (cheek to cheek)!

an itsy bitsy spider

Lexi has been taking aerial silks classes since June and I got to see her class. It was so cool! She is like a spider dangling from a web...and doing tricks! The class is in someone's backyard!

The OC

We went down to visit Mike's sister's family The Hatalski's this weekend. Lucy really loves hanging out with her big cousins. Mike went to see Nick's band play, but Lucy isn't ready for rockin, so we stayed home. However I got to go see Lexi's aerial silks class the next day. I got lots of good pictures so I think a separate post is in order. We had such a fun weekend!

Naya's Garden

Julie and Brian's house is a short walk from an indoor playground called Naya's Garden. We have been going a few times a week. It's really fun!

Turkey Day

Bobby's famous black cherry jello! my favorite!

Well, I was busy cooking and mike was taking all the pictures, so sorry they are all of me! ....Thanksgiving was fun this year. We made an awesome feast at Julie and Brian's and my good friend Yvonne came over with her mom Gloria. And Jeff, a friend from next door came over too on the spur of the moment. I cooked the turkey breast down which was awesome! I'll never cook it breast up again. Lucy helped me make an apple pie. Her main duty was taste testing!

2 babies in a crib!

Have you ever wondered what happens when you put two babies in a crib? lots of jumping running, falling, and general mayhem! i highly recommend it.

Summer and Liam visit!

Lucy's buddy Liam and my buddy Summer came over for a visit a few weeks ago and I'm just finally getting the pictures up. We had lots of fun... Summer and I are friends from highschool and we've hung out often since the babies were just a few months old. I'm sad that we wont get to see each other much once we move... Lucy and Liam have a special bond.

The Good Old Days

Our friend Will just sent me these pictures he took from when we went to the Getty museum in July. It was before Lucy was walking. We were there pretty early before it was crowded and we let her knee-walk arund on the vast exspanses of marble floor they have there.

Dog Food...

Well, Lucy walked over to me chewing something the other day... I asked her what she was eating. She said with a completely straight face: "dog food". There was nothing I could do at that point and I figured she would come to the conclusion that dog food was yucky, so I decided to take a picture, because I thought it was funny. However, she went back to Sally's bowl for more. So I have to be on the look out now!


Lucy dressed as a pirate for Halloween and we met her friend Ava (and her parents, who are our friends) at Descanso Gardens. It was beautiful and such a great place to go with toddlers, because they can really run free. Lucy has been very into pumpkins, so she was beside herself. She likes them so much that she says hi to them and gives them kisses. We told her that pirates say "aaaargh!", but her version sounded more like a very emphatic "UUuuugh!!!".

New Shoes and New President

Lucy had worn a hole in her shoes, so on our way to vote we stopped at 'Wee-Soles' on Sunset and bought her some new shoes! She wore them to the Scientology Center which is where we have voted for the past 4 years!


I am just so happy I am beside myself that we have elected a president that truly gives me a sense of hope for our country and for our future. I am so proud to have been a part of this movement. We did it!!!! Yippeee!!! Here are some pics from last night after we listened to President Elect Obama's winning speech. (Mike was at work, booo).
