A new Art in Los Angeles

It is now October 30th. and we are still awaiting the new arrival. We've taken to doing some short jaunts around town. Came upon this bus on the freeway and think it's quite fantastic.

Before we had to bear to the left lane, the quote on the top of the right hand side of the bus, made me smile...."give your brain as much attention as you do your hair and you'll be a thousand times better off"

If you click on the images it may make it a little easier to read.

These photos were taken on my iPhone. That sky is real, there was a peculiar fog rolling in off the ocean causing clouds and playing with the sky.

According to the Los Angeles Times

By the light of the silvery moon

Okay, so we're still waiting. We celebrated Thanksgiving tonight with a turkey dinner and there is a full moon shining brightly in the sky as hurricane Sandy threatens the east coast. It is very uncharacteristically hot here in LA. I suggested that a moonlight stroll by the silvery moon might speed things along:)

Until then, this is what happens when someone gets a hold on their Mamère's tinted Burt's Bee's lip balm. Waaaay too much time on our hands out here!

Saturday Dance Class

Still waiting for baby to arrive, so we're off to dance class. You are invited to wear your Halloween costume to class today if you wish. Zoë decided on her "Friendly" witch costume.

Then you find your friend and you hold hands for a special picture.

You have to wait until the previous class finishes.

Oh My Goodness! I wonder if I will be able to manage in this long skirt??

Feet in First Position

Point. Perfect, I'll be fine

Everyone in position to enter the studio walking tall

TAP TIME!!! Hurry Mummy!!!

Oh Mummy! We had so much fun, we had pumpkins, and tiaras and there was a spider on the floor, and our teacher is SO beautiful...

I LOVE dance class!

...and I must say I do rather well at the "Friendly" witch thing :)

Still Waiting

Seems like I just got my photos from Vegas in order and we're back in California!

We arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday. Baby brother was supposed to make his appearance on Friday. Yesterday's appointment thought Sunday might be a good day to have a baby.

In the meantime, what do you do while waiting for a boy to arrive?? Why finger painting of course!

There is always that element in this exercise when one realizes just how messy this can get!

That is also the inspiration for going for the gusto!

What happens when you mix all the colours together??

Mummy! Let's get this all cleaned up and I'll show you how we can paint together!

So. We're off to dance class today. Everyone gets to wear her Halloween costume.

according to Zoë, no matter how scary, most of the characters are "friendly" .

Sew Something

Who knew that unbeknownst to us, old friends from home would end up in the same hotel overlapping a day...we were able to have breakfast together, AND that this shop ALLSAINTS whose window display had me "gobsmacked" is who their son works with in London!!

Think I'll go sew something this weekend.

Leaving the Luxor

Had we not been trying to find a little train, we would never have come across this Egyptian find. The sun was setting, the train nowhere to be seen, but this was worth the little jaunt.
