2010 in Review

Friday, December 31st, 2010

This was actually taken late New Year’s Eve. We played karaoke, ate, used noise makers, and I know there was a ton of confetti involved.

This was Daisy’s birthday. We stayed overnight at the Disneyland Hotel to celebrate her turning 5. Even though my kids don’t go to school, for some reason age 5 still seems […]

Day of Daisy

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Yesterday Tabitha was with her Girl Scout troop all day. As in, we had to leave the house at 7, in the pouring rain, to take her. The went to Pasadena to work on decorating the floats for the Rose Parade. I did it in High School so I guess it’s just a rite of […]

Taking advantage

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

The girls have this week off from dance so we’re taking advantage of not needing to be somewhere in the afternoons and going places. Monday we headed to the LA Zoo. We used to have a membership, but let it lapse 4 years ago. Since then we’ve only visited once but as of yesterday, we’re […]

From the Ancs

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

in my nature

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Quite a few years ago when my sister was about 9 years old, I made her a jointed, jester puppet out of plastic canvas. I finished it around 2 in the morning on Christmas Eve. Things have not changed. I had planned to sew my girls stuffed animals made out of the same fleece as […]

rain, rain, go away

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

And don’t bother coming back for awhile either. It’s supposed to taper off today and then give us a couple days of lovely sunshine. Right now, though, still raining. It’s bad enough that I bought the dog some sweaters. I am not a dress up your dog type of person and I had to set […]

this isn’t the post you’re looking for

Here’s a photo to distract you from the fact that this isn’t a real post. At least my kids are cute. Plus, look at their fabulous dresses! I may be biased since I sewed them.

Finally got off my duff to get some Christmas stuff done. Basically, and I do this every single year, I start shopping for the kids in July. Because I start so early I feel really good about being ahead of the game. Oh, and I plan the dresses in August, so again, I feel like […]

Amazing what a long talk with a good friend will do for one’s disposition. I was feeling pretty down and wallowing in those feelings on the drive to Daisy’s dance; but I got to chat for an hour and now feel very upbeat.
This morning we went to see a small production of “The Elves and […]

Carol of the Bells

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

During park today we had a practice for an upcoming event in which we’re going to go sing at a retirement home. It was wonderful to really break out the Christmas songs. We had a nice mix of traditional and non-religious songs and I’m really looking forward to hopefully bringing some Christmas spirit to others.
After […]

Twin Peaks- Psych style

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

We had an interesting evening on Monday. We headed out to the Paley Center, formerly the Museum of Television and Radio, for a Psych/Twin Peaks event. First we got to watch this week’s episode of Psych entitled “Dual Spires.” It was really enjoyable, as I’m sure you know by now since it aired last night.
In […]
