My family

So here are some new pics of me and my beautiful famille. The first one (on the left) is a recent shot of me doing one of the things I love to do best - KNIT in Las Vegas. David (who asked to remain anonymous on the web) and I went as his 50th Birthday gift. What a city and weekend. It flew by much quicker that I ever anticipated, but was filled with a lot of fun, laughter, gambling, a little adult fun :) and sleep. I had forgotten how much fun it was to be free from all responsibility. LOL!

This beautiful pair of girls are my daughter Olyvia and her best friend Rachel (who is like my other daughter) I can't believe how quickly they are both growing up - it makes me a little sad and scared - its flying by. Tonight ~ Rachael came over to celebrate Chanukah with Olyvia and I and exchange gifts. Have you ever heard the term little white ghetto girl - well that would be Rachel - she loved the Ludacris CD we got her - although after to listening to it for a bit - I have to tell you I never expected her to be listening to such garbage. Definitely not my speed. I think that makes me old. HA HA HA!.

The ones beside the girls are pics of our kids that are still at home. Alex, Taylor and Justin. So as you can see we have our hands full. Most of the time we laugh a lot - occasionally we cry, but mostly we survive like most blended families - by just getting through one day at a time. I often take time to reflect on how much we have all grown together over our last number of years together - its been hard - but worth ever minute of every day.

I do realize as I am almost forgot to add a picture of our most beloved family member - Java. This little toy poodle - brings so much joy and cohesion to our family - even on the most dysfunctional day - she is a very special dog and much loved puppy-loo (as she is affectionately called).
