Surfing Sunday 12.08

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent it in the Bay Area with Mike’s side of the family and had a really great weekend, despite the crappy weather that kept us indoors more of the time. It’s hard to believe that it’s already December…the year AND decade are just a few weeks from ending. Also, our new book, A Whole Lotta Knock-Knock Jokes, officially hit stores last week!!! It was on the top of several lists, including new releases, jokes and riddles, and children’s humor. It makes a great stocking stuffer and also a great way to pass the time when you’re stuck inside due to bad weather – Annie, James, and their cousins had a lot of fun with it over Thanksgiving weekend.

Little Baller
Annie and James both had their first basketball games of the season yesterday. Annie had an amazing game with several steals, rebounds, and assists. She kicked butt, and her team won!!! For James, it was his first basketball game EVER. Watching six-year-olds play basketball is…very entertaining. It was a dream come true for James, though. He didn’t touch the ball much but still had an absolute blast. It will be fun watching both of them this year.

Fun Finds
~I ordered this book, A is for Audra, for Annie to celebrate her new love of all-things Broadway.
~My nephew is going to get this “new” Dr. Seuss book (the manuscript was discovered in 2013).
~I need to get these “help you find your lost things” stickers for my airpods…James loves to use them and lose them. I have to laugh at the photo examples, though – who is losing things as gigantic as an SLR Camera or a drill?!
~Another great stocking stuffer – build your own music box! Mike is definitely getting this.
~Speaking of music, the Spontuneous board game looks like a blast for music fans.
~Did you know you can buy practice suture kits on Amazon? Perfect for any future-doctors you might know.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

It’s been a very long, very emotional two weeks. November 7th and 8th marked one year since the mass shooting and wildfires rocked my hometown of Thousand Oaks. The city created a “Healing Garden” as a permanent memorial to 12 lives lost in the Borderline mass shooting. I went there on November 8th, the day…

Yet another crazy week, this one defined by local wildfires. One of the fires was close enough to us that schools were closed for a few days. We had a lot of friends who needed to evacuate, and there was a thick layer of smoke overhead that created an eerie, unsettling light. The kids were…
