A Special Lady

Last week we lost a wonderful furry friend and part of the family. Ally came to our family when we were barely a family, but merely a Mo and a Meghan and an impromptu visit to the animal shelter. She moved with me all over Los Angeles and took a flight up to Portland! She was a champ when we added to our family, both of the furry and human kind! She was right by my side for every rainy day and grand celebration. A decade never seemed to go so fast. An ambassador to feline kind, she will be greatly missed. This was the last picture of my girl, she loved the Christmas tree! I will really miss those green eyes!

Because I missed my January 30 for 30 - this month I will be splitting my donation between the Humane Society of the United States and the Agoura Animal Shelter's non-profit, Malibu Pet Companions (where Ally came from) - in her honor!

After a long week, I am finally getting to post our California trip pics! I am already missing that sunshine and I know Logan is missing wearing shorts and t-shirts in January and spending all day with his family! Here are pics of our days on the beach, meeting other baby cousins and other general fun in the sun! Lots of relaxation, good food and good company.... only wish we could have stayed longer!

California Sneak Peak

We spent a lot of time at the beach, and come on, it was 75 degrees, how could we pass that up?

It took Logan a few trips to warm up to the texture of sand, but I think he gets it now! More to come!

Logan - 18 Months

I can't believe that we made it to 18 months - this feels like a milestone. No question we have entered full blown toddler-hood and things are changing by the minute. Logan is pushing all the boundaries of his little world, attempting independence all the time. This month he sprouted some molars, celebrated Christmas, got visits from Auntie Kelly Jane and Uncle Marty, went to see Zoo Lights for the first time, cried while sitting on Santa's lap and so much more. We continue to love seeing the world through his eyes, even when things don't go perfectly. As he becomes his own person, we see his personality come through - he is brave and loves a good adventure, whether that be climbing to the highest part of the playground or racing around on his bike - I see this as what is to come!

He also took his 3rd round trip flight to California - but that deserves a post of its own, so more to pics to come on that later!
