Happy Halloween

Our big week of Halloween activities wraps up on Tuesday …

We carved pumpkins with Kiana & Ange on Sunday night, and we are ready to go. Candy is ready. Costumes are ready. Video camera, still camera … stay tuned for more pictures!

Halloween Preview

Halloween’s not until Tuesday, but we kicked things off tonight in Downtown Campbell, at the merchants’ Trick & Treat event for kids. Cousin Kiana joined us for the fun, and the girls all got to show off their costumes.

Karen has once again created masterful custom costumes for both girls. Jocelyn is a Witch and […]

Booksin Spirit: “Common Sense”

Jocelyn has been honored with another “Booksin Spirit Award” …recognized by her second grade teacher, Mr. Martinez, for demonstrating the life skill of “Common Sense.”

Around about this time last year, she was recognzed for the life skill of “Effort” in first grade.

We’re quite proud of her life skills — and the good […]

From Cans to Turkeys

Jocelyn’s 2nd Grade class has embarked on an exciting community-service fundraiser … collecting aluminum cans on behalf of local charities. The proceeds of the class’ collection will go to purchasing Thanksgiving Turkeys for two San Jose charities: Martha’s Kitchen and Loaves & Fishes.

Jocelyn and her classmate Kai took a trip to Crossbow on Monday […]

Froggy Stickers

In addition to our regular appearances on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we often see Teacher […]

15 Miles at Booksin Walk-a-Thon 2006

Jocelyn completed the Booksin Walk-a-Thon on Saturday, and had a great time doing it. She even played in a soccer game in the middle of the day — and got credit for walking 15 miles (an improvement over last year’s 12 miles)!

She’s pictured here with her good friend Kaitlyn Abe, who kept her company […]

Jocelyn’s FETCH! Challenge

You’re here because you are invited to my eighth birthday party, and you’re about to become Ruff Ruffman’s newest “Fetcher!” Here’s what you need to do:

If you haven’t watched FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman on PBS, then you are in for a real treat. You can watch it on Friday afternoons at 5:30 on Silicon […]

Felicia’s Kitty

Just in case anyone was wondering, Felicia has decided that Tiburon is her cat. She primarily calls Tiburon by her new name: “My Kitty.” Siskiyou is “Jocelyn’s Kitty.” … nevermind that both cats were born long before either girl.

She still loves both cats, and often wants to know where they are. And she constantly […]
