Eva's 12th Bithday

Josette had a great time at Eva's Glamping Party!  They started the evening at Cinepolis Westlake to see Strange Magic then came back to the house for a jacuzzi and smores.  They all slept in a huge comfy tent inside.  She always has a great time with Eva and loved getting to know her friends.

Wax Museum

The big 3rd Grade project of the year is the Wax Museum.  Each student picks a significant person from the past or present and becomes that person while giving a 1 minute speech to an ongoing audience.  We were so proud of Gigi as she transformed into Pro Surfer Bethany Hamilton.  Bethany is such an inspiration to others and Gigi did a wonderful job telling about her amazing life and accomplishments.  Good job Gigi!

Spandau Ballet


Spandau Ballet in LA!  Jeff and I jump at the chance to see 80's bands and Spandau did not disappoint.  They were awesome!!!  We had dinner Saturday night at La Scala then went to The Wiltern to see the concert.  Always love a date night... good food + good music = good fun!


Jessie's First Reconciliation

A very important day for Jessie.  Her Dad and I joined her as she prepared and made her First Reconciliation.  As we confess we find God's unconditional forgiveness and as a result we are called to forgive others.  It is a beautiful thing to watch your child grow into a humble graceful young girl.  We're so proud of you Jessie Joy!

Shelby's Here!

We were so lucky to spend the week with Shelby!  She came for a visit during her winter break from The University of Delaware.  We dined at Terranea and caught the most beautiful sunset.  Gigi and Jessie joined her on a trip to Knotts where she and Gigi buddied up to ride the roller coasters.  On her last day Ginny, Josette and I took her for an early birthday lunch at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills.  Shelby is so beautiful inside and out!  She is kind, smart and fun!  It was a joy for us all to have this quality time together!  We love you Shelby!  Hope you come back this summer!
