Drive-By Picture Post

Chrismukkah-related activities and the car semi-exploding have kept me very busy of late, so I haven't had too much time for bloggery, but here are a few photos of recent Jackson outings:

Jackson gleefully chortles at the camera as he enjoys a Hannukah cupcake at the Slavin Family Children's Library Hannukah storytime at the Jewish Federation Building on Miracle Mile. 
And when he was done with the cupcake he took to "drinking drinking" the crumbs on the plate, lest any deliciousness go unsavored. 
There were also many cookies. And a free Hannukah book that we've already read many times. The blue-frosting girl in the background kept showing up to party with Jackson. It was nice that he had an admirer for once, because usually he's the one running around inappropriately hugging other kids, bless his heart.
Which reminds me, I've been meaning to tell all my Jewish-ish mama friends: To my great delight, I have discovered there is a service that will send your Jewish or fractionally Jewish kiddo free Judaism-related children's books every month. (Who says the Jews don't proselytize?) Go to PJ Library to find out if it's offered in your community and/or browse the book list here.

Kitty! While tree shopping in the South Bay (more on that in a future post), we met a crotchety old alley cat in the nursery. Jackson had great fun chasing the kitty around and watching it drink from a fountain while balanced on an impossibly narrow ledge.
Baby's First McDonald's Play Place. I am so ashamed. (But I needed to keep him busy while we were waiting for the aforementioned semi-exploding car to be repaired, and you gotta do what you gotta do.)

Jackson was gifted this car (complete with name license plate!!) by our wonderful friend Lia. He adores it. He insisted we bring it inside. He eats a lot of meals in while sitting in it. This was breakfast yesterday. :) He may never walk anywhere again, in true Angeleno fashion. From here on out, only "driving driving." :)
