Sometimes it Rains in California

When it rains in California, the kids are a bit perplexed (followed soon by the hysterical joy of puddles) and everyone is wondering where all the umbrellas went.

Bo Peep's Sheep (CDMA's "Babes in Toyland")

I was warned back stage at last night's dress rehearsal at the Clark Center... "The sheep will be coming through here in just a minute - could be your only photo opp." What? I'm not ready; all I have is my ancient cell phone! My problems were not important. You gotta grabs 'em as ya can, so I did. And here they came. It was a woosh-by on their way to the dressing room; the sheep were done for the night.

Coastal Christian School's Christmas Parade Float

Many were moved to tears. It was the perfect feel for the season. A simple manger scene with a choir of little angels singing "Away in a Manger." All the photos: This was also the inaugural run for the portable sound system Tracy got for just such occasions; it worked perfectly.

Great Pumpkin Roll 2013

It's hard to believe, but it's true. This could be our favorite tradition.

#TeamJilly - Compound Style

Turns out, the Compound portion of the #TeamJilly #epilepsyawareness forces did not get to make the trip into LA for the mega event today (van issues). So off they go to church, all geared up and complete with #TeamJilly cookies, to cheer on the home team, from home.

When You Believe

Serafina nailed her performance of "When You Believe" (from Disney's "Prince of Egypt") at the CCS Celebration Gala last night. Robob wasn't up for attending, so he got a private performance earlier in the afternoon.

Check out some photos: click here.

Halloween at the Compound

Oh my... Bobbing for doughnuts, haunted hallway, yucky things to smell, even yuckier things to feel, cookies to decorate, trick or treating from door to door, and all this on a stomach full of mummy dogs.
