Guinea Pigs!
We headed to a petting zoo in San Juan Capistrano with Jess and the M's last Sunday
where, surprisingly, the major draw were guinea pigs.
Here are the M's, 
no--smitten with these creatures.
Of course, there were goats
and horses
but the guinea pigs won the day.

Some February Love...
 For Max, here getting the "Student of the Month" award at Edison Elementary

and for his great sis, Maddie.

For our fabulous families in Burbank and Panama--
Being together with Sam and family: watching the Super Bowl.

 for Simon

and Gwen
 and their folks.
Happy at the seashore in Panama.  
For Toby--his artwork at CAPS (Mimi's):  I call this one "Spring."
For the dear dads 
who watch over their kids. 

For LA!!!! Here's the snake we met last night at the LA Zoo 
(named Audrey because, like Audrey Hepburn, she has a long neck).

For strong friendships:  

Sam and Jess never forgetting people on their special occasions (like Marissa's birthday),

and for my great pal Julie with whom I've traveled many heart-felt paths.

2016 Begins
Not for us with midnight celebrations of the New Year
but enjoying the Panama crew until Jan.7th when they returned home.
 Nibbles joyfully welcomed Gwen.
Then we got to watch Maddie graduate to a green belt.
We celebrated Jess' big 40th on the 14th! 

Had the M's for the night when Sam and Jess escaped to Vegas for her 40th.
The next morning we migrated to the studio

where Toby, a week or so before, discovered his handy talent for sanding furniture,
I for painting,
and now the M's for 

creating stripes, creatures, a giant peach, and an inspirational saying on the back of my desk!

Plus, a great visit from the Feinsteins.
Wow--a Toby hug from Lea!
