we took our annual trip to Mickey's Halloween Party last night. It was my favorite so far because JOSIE. Sash and Babe and Brad and Case kind of split off and did the big kid stuff so i got to take Josie to the little kid stuff and it was so fun. But we also did its a small world as a family and it might be my favorite memory for the night.

I've always loved the organization Homeboy Industries, since I moved here to Los Angeles!
Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community. They also make delicious chips and salsa!
This year I signed up to do their 5k run walk. It's this Saturday! Next year, you should join me! This year, you should donate to my walk.
Here's the link.

September has always been kind of a big month in my life, I guess because I work at a school and have for the majority of the last 13 years? But for whatever reason, this is when the stuff happens. It's the month of the breast cancer walk, it's the time of year when my grandmother passed away. It's usually when my kids start to get sick for the year and so my anxiety spikes.
Anyways, we are deep in September! This year September is relatively calm for me compared to other years and to other months this year. But it ain't over yet. HA!
But I always get those emails that show you the pics from 6 years ago today or whatever and these are some of them. They bring me back to a very particular time of my life, and I will share that with you.
6 years ago in July we moved from NYC to LA. I had no job and a one year old. Babe had a job and worked all the time. It wasn't a particularly fun time but we did have some awesome friends and some good routines. We spent a lot of time with our supper club besties because they had just moved here too. (That's Buddy and Carter above. Lu must have been in a pack.)
Little Ori was just a baby and my sister used to bring him up all the time. Just me and her and Ori and Buddy. He looks so funny and so skeptical in this picture.
I tried going to mommy and me stuff but you know me, I hated it. I tried though.
And of course our besties and Ang in her cute hat. And our Culver City backyard!
It was a short time, really. I got work starting in October and worked as a consultant for basically a year until I landed a job at USC 5 years ago last week.

Babe and I are on our weekly Friday night date!
Afterwards we made these awesome skulls with Buddy.
Can you see this? Is it moving for you? Because this is Buddy with her sister every minute of the day. Plus Joze is a panda and we love her.
The new walking path opened and we walked it with our cutie neighbors.
Can you see Coach Babe in there?
Joze hates pics but loves chalk.
These friends for life in order from oldest to youngest.
Beautiful playground in Carpinteria.
There is a lot going on in this picture!
Rooting for Auntie at the Boob Walk.
SAD SAD SAD SAD Christa.

we got a chance to hang out in a pool on saturday, which was the hottest day. ever.
the thing i love the most about the pool is the same thing that every parent loves the most about the pool is how it wears your children out.
got a new hair do.
hung around outside.
