Reasons to Vote NO on 8

Check out this quick video - I first saw it over at LesbianDad and was happy - actually overjoyed to see my old housemate Tsippora representing for the cause - these kids are awesome - I want them all to come to my house & play with my baby.

Take a minute & check out this commmercial too....

Now go call or email someone in California and remind them how important it is to vote this Nov.

Peace -

Okay so you can't really tell, but up behind my head sitting on the porch is James Taylor -- really, trust me on this one -- he's really there. yup.
So this was the Sunday afternoon sound check before the GMA monday show. For the sound check there were maybe 30 people hanging around as well as folks from the hotel staff. On Monday am when the show actually aired there were a lot more people as well as Yo Yo Ma who played with JT on the show.

Anyway it was fun to watch the run through then to watch the broadcast the next am.

Good Morning --- Americah

is doing a train trip across the US & the 3rd stop this morning is Stockbridge MA in the Shire. Yesterday we were with Grandpa playing in the Stockbridge park & playground then getting Ice Cream for the boy down main st.... where we sat in front of the Red Lion Inn and watched James Taylor do his soundcheck for this mornings show. I kept trying to call Amy B. cause I know she LOVES her some sweet baby james... but I kept loosing my cell signal (thanks Verizon Wireless). I took some photos with my phone & I will try to post them later today when I can sit at the other computer.

In other news we are hammering out the details for our upcoming trips - 1st to NY for Cathies show at the Guggenheim & High Holidays with Em's folks, then to SF for Yom Kipp at CSZ and up to Mendo for Mel & Vejay's wedding !!!! I am excited, but also a bit overwhelmed with the details to deal with to make it all happen.

Portraits of the Artist (as a Young Man)

We pulled out the easel this morning & Lila brought out her paints. This was our lil monkeys first time painting - he took right to it -
had good technique with the brush and a nice eye for the colors. The only downside was he didn't want to stop. By the time half an hour had gone by much of his painting was becoming that bad brownish tone that you get when you mix the primary colors a few too many times.

But look how happy he is.

I think we will try using fingerpainting technique next!!!

I Scream, You Scream ...

He had just woken up from his afternoon nap & was indulging in a bit of "snack" when we heard the ominous notes of The Entertainer ringing out. Lil Mister then insisted we grab my wallet and run down the street (me carrying him as he had pj's and no shoes on...) to visit the Music Truck and get an Ice Cream. & truly how often can a mere $2 buy such joy & happiness? - plus he shares with his momma!!!

Summer '08

Here's a shot of the "triplets" (with Kristen in the background) ... I can't believe that summer is winding down & there are going to be big changes on the morning playground - a handful of our nannie playmates are off to start school next week - we had a big party for their sendoff on Friday with food a pinata and cakes.... And tonight I found out that our bestest gal pal ever -Lila (center) got accepted into preschool starting NEXT WEEK--- its only in the mornings but I am feeling somewhat distraught. On the other hand I know it'll be great for her & she is definatly ready to take this step. I can't imagine letting our little monkey go off to school though -

Having joined the dark side

as you can see the force of RedSox Nation has proven too much for the lil monkey to resist. He made his first trip to Fenway with Mommy Em and Uncle Dan (& Farah) for a kids double header with the PawSox and came home with his first brand new & bought by us Red Sox paraphanalia.

At least he's showing his Jewish pride though!!!
