On December 23rd Mark, Bonnie, Davey and I went for a day in downtown San Francisco. While waiting to get in to lunch at Cheesecake Factory, we wandered about Santa Land on the 7th floor of Macy's. While there, Davey sat down and drew a picture of Santa on a postcard and popped it in to the Santa Mail Box. Yay!

I'm sure we can all relate...

Our house guest for a couple days

Davey and I are dog sitting Travis, Mom and Mick's dog, for a couple days. While allergy testing shows Davey is allergic to cats and dogs, we're giving this a try to see how he does. Travis, besides, is the sweetest and most well behaved dog I can imagine.

This morning we all went for a walk to Peets and Noah's for lunch. Davey was on his bike and Travis on a leash. Everyone had a grand time. Now it's nap time but later this afternoon we will go for another outing to Pioneer Park for more bike riding and walking.

Halloween Loot!

Halloween Loot!, originally uploaded by jessicafm.
Yes, it was a good Halloween! Davey liked his trash truck costume, he had a great time with Grandma Bonbon while she took him trick-or-treating and told him "the story of us." He got a nice haul of candy, too! There was plenty he couldn't have (milk containing candies) but there was also more than enough that was "safe."

Here's a bit of video as Davey and Bonnie left to go trick-or-treating:

And here's how our house looked. Earlier in the day Bonnie drew designs on the pumpkins and I did the carving and gutting.

A surprise dessert for Davey from Ubuntu of passion fruit tapioca and coconut sorbet. We had supper there, and Davey was SO patient and good over the two hour meal, the night before his 4th birthday.

Davey's birthday party

Davey's birthday party, originally uploaded by jessicafm.

Let the birthday partying begin! Yes, Davey's birthday is still 5 days away but we had his "kid" birthday party today, the Saturday prior to the real day. What fun we had!

We went to Marin Treks in Novato where Brian (Mr. C) showed and taught the kids about leopard geckos, ball pythons and tortoises. The kids all had the opportunity to touch and/or hold those creatures, which pretty much all were doing by the time that was up.

Then we had some excellent Amici's pizza (kudos to Mark for getting them to have pizza ready 45 minutes before they open their doors!), cupcakes and juice boxes.

An interesting twist: For the first time, it was almost all dads accompanying kids to this party. There were two other moms there (Grace's mom, Cammeron and Alex's mom, Suzanne). That was totally funny! One wonders if maybe some moms were a little squeamish about snakes, lizards, etc.? Ha, totally funny! Of course everyone at the party was a lot of fun.

Davey loved the gifts his friends gave him. We spent the afternoon, pre and post nap, putting together the various gifts and playing. Thanks kids!

Wednesday I'm taking off work to take Davey to meet up with Papa and Linda in Calistoga for a birthday lunch. On his actual birthday, Thursday, he'll go to school so he can wear the special birthday hat at circle time and eat cupcakes (or rice crispy treats? hmmm) with his Kittens classmates and then something special for dinner that night. Family birthday party next weekend? I guess Mark and I had better figure that one out quickly!

Zucchini muffins that Davey helped me make

Davey was an awesome sous-chef, helping me measure and mix the dry ingredients and using the plunger to push the zucchini in to the food processor for shredding. Of course he was also great at cleaning the bowl and spatula...
