DirecTV Holiday Party pics

We had our 2010 holiday party last night; it was held at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, and it was a lot of fun – in addition to an ice sculptor and s field of snow, there were ice skaters performing, various foods around including a decorate-the-gingerbread-man area.

Jett and Iggy – more photos!

It looks like we have a new addition to our family – Jett now sits happily on our laps, follows us around and is starting leash training along with some potty training.  Yay! She’s small (I’d guess around 11 or 12 lbs.) compared to Iggy (who is getting close to 16 lbs. now) and her […]

Our new family member – Jett (ne Shania)

Toby just didn’t work out – he was hand shy and wouldn’t let us touch him let alone pick him up – I believe that if you can’t carry your dog you shouldn’t have him or her. So the breeder came by, took Toby back with her (for some serious socialization training) and dropped off […]

We took Aviva’s brother Brian to Malibu Pier so he could go to the beach. I took a video with my iPhone of the surf (I think the sound of surf is very relaxing): The weather was great and we had a lot of fun – here are some of the photos I took with […]

We took our friend to Malibu today – not the nicest weather for a trip to the beach, but the Pacific is almost always majestic. Here’s a really bad video of some surfers – two made it to the end of the wave: We went to the pier and then to Malibu’s downtown – that […]

Chinatown and Little Tokyo

We have company visiting and she wanted to go to Chinatown, so we headed out. After shopping for a couple hours in the Dynasty mall there (it’s a huge indoor shopping area with a bunch of vendors selling clothes, toys, housewares, etc.) we headed to Little Tokyo for another hour of shopping. While we were […]
