A few recent quotes.

A few days ago on a walk upon seeing a black and white dog..."look - a panda bear"

Being tucked in on her birthday..."is my birthday over"

Elle and Jack made a gingerbread house with Mom!

She dressed in birthday attire for school - including her hat!

Elle scores a Hello Kitty scooter from Granny!   And loves it

Cold in CA? Watch Kimmel

Similar reaction in Northern CA though we tend to get slightly harsher temps and storms.   There was, in fact, real snow this afternoon out our house.... just a flurry.

Our Visit with Santa

We saw Santa early this year as I guess he has a pretty busy schedule. It turns out, actually, that Santa is quite in demand and will be spending a lot of time before Christmas in San Francisco at the famous Ghiradelli Square.

Elle was still a bit leery of the plump elf and couldn't be talking into sitting on his lap. She did, however, cautiously run up to him in order to accept a candy cane. She now declares that she'll sit on Santa's lap on Sunday.

For the first year ever, Jack did not ask Santa for a wallet! Rather he asked for 1. The Star Wars Lego Republic Gunship 2. The Star Wars Lego Count Dooku's Solar Sailor and - since Elle was was too scared he allocated one of his three items for her. He asked Santa to bring Elle a dollhouse.

Christmas Time is Here...Again!

Jack got it right on his poster he made for school last year.

He thought Christmas was about: Love...Giving...Family....Hugs....Friends....and finally Puff the Elf. He pretty much nailed it.
