New Year’s Eve at Marsha and Tom’s. Following are pictures of four small surfaces in their house. Please be assured there are 100s more. So so many more, so cool, so unique.
Ho Ho Ho!
Lilly hosted a way-too-fun cookie party for her four BFFs. We’re all BFFs she told me.
I was entirely delighted watching Angela make it all happen so smoothly and make it so entertaining for the kids. She got them all stools and they took turns with the recipe, putting in the flour, stirring, running the mixer – aDORable…
The day before Kailin and her BFFs got together for their Secret Santa party.
All by themselves they decided to do Secret Santa. They drew names, had a budget, and they made such thoughtful gifts for each other.
These two events have made me feel all warm and fuzzy for the Holiday Season. Thank you for doing that!
Emma, Finley, Leila, Nicole, Rome
Marsha and I saw La La Land today and it was very charming indeed with plenty of affection for LA, characters I cared about, and even a story. Plus singing and dancing so although I hope it’s not the best movie of the year, meaning that a better one is in the wings, as far as this year goes it is the best movie I’ve seen yet.
My Valley Girls Monday Night Potluck Holiday Extravaganza! We all so look forward to this yearly event at Alicia’s with scrumptious food, a beautiful table and decorations, a helper in the kitchen, and a shower of gifts. (Don’t miss our shower of snowflakes because I think they’re adorable.) THANK YOU LADIES!
Me, Alicia, Ljubica, Lourdes, Ann, Maxine, Becky, Marija, Marsha. Sadly Maryanne couldn’t make.
From Cynthia: she and Mike and Kieran went to Mike’s mom-and-her-husband’s wonderful old farmhouse home in the wilds of the Minnesota countryside for the Thanksgiving after-weekend.
They had a great time, and here’s Ken in His Chair. Phyllis wrote that “Scott and Cheri ((Scott is Mike’s brother)) weren’t able to come. They got a lot of snow a few days ago, and had to move cows.”
I’m so happy that I get to know Phyllis and Ken, they are beautiful people, and that I get to know people who can say that Scott and Cheri couldn’t come because they had to move cows.
I had two rather unproductive days although I did try, but it seems not my best effort since very little got done. One of my stops – Liz’s Antique Hardware on La Brea. Tons, literally, of antique hardware, but none for me.
Oh great, and now the counters are delayed a few days and the backsplash is delayed a few weeks. Sure, there are reasons, there are always reasons…
Oh Alex, how it is always something. I’m bringing the garbage cans in from the alley now because my neighbors are too tempted by the easy access and fill up my cans within two days after a pickup.
So it was Alex’s idea to put that little lattice fence by the washing machines and hide the cans. Good thinking Alex! Good building Alex!
