Wallace meets Santa Paws!!!

Wallace met "Santa Paws" at the San Francisco SPCA this morning! Uncle Blane came with us, and we had a great time.

Wallace wasn't entirely sure how he felt about the big guy wearing the red suit, but we got some fun photos from it and are always happy to support the SPCA.

Current Status

I'm just so happy with how quickly Wallace and Olive took to each other.

They started to chase each other around the house this morning. 🐶😺

Afternoon Smiles

I just love this happy little guy.

World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. As I walked down Castro Street this morning, I watched as kids from our local elementary school wrote the names of some of of those that we've lost with colorful chalk in the sidewalk. I loved watching these kids (4th-6th graders) create art while learning about this important and on going history in our neighborhood, and in our World. I also spoke with two members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence who spoke with the students this morning before they started on today's project. Such a beautiful way to remember the countless loved ones that we have all lost. ❤️

The Epic Cuddle!

I just shared the most epic cuddle with Wallace. He must have stayed like this for 10-15 minutes. It was amazing.

Late night explorer

Last night was the second night that Olive slept with us and had free roam of the house. Every time I woke up, she was sleeping with us, until I woke up in the morning and heard her playing in the other room.

However, when I looked at the Wallace-Cam from last night, I discovered that she had walked around the house and visited Wallace around 4:00am!! The video is pretty cute- she went right up to Wallace's crate. It woke him up, but luckily, he didn't seem bothered. I thought he might bark (from being startled) or cry/whine (as he did the first the first several days when we first got Olive). He seemed fine, though. Just tired, and eventually went back to sleep.

Olive loves her new Daddy

Olive slept in our bedroom for the first time last night. It went very well! She had full reign of the house, but spent most of the night in bed with us. We're very happy with how quickly she has adjusted to our family and home.

Her Daddy is smitten with her, too. :)


Drum roll, please........

The kitten's name is "Olive".

It took a long time for us to whittle through our short list of about 10 names, but I think we got it right.

What helped finalize it? I mentioned the name to my sister, Tiffini Chow, and she loved it. She told me that one of her most favorite characters on any show that she ever worked on was Olive Ostrovsky from "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Her favorite Olive line:
"Did you know that if you switch the first two vowels in "Olive", it becomes "I love"?"

Pink Martini at SF Jazz!!

What an amazing performance by Pink Martini tonight at SF Jazz! A late show (9:00-11:15!) but so worth staying up late.

Coincidentally, Dean and Jose were also there and had seats directly in from of us!

Wallace & Saki's Play Date!!

Macy's SPCA Holiday Windows

Made it out during the break in the rain today to visit Blane while he volunteers at the Macy's SPCA windows. So many cute puppies and kittens (I managed to *not* bring another home with me). The photos of the kittens and puppies are from when I went Wednesday. It was quieter that day and my photos turned out better than today.
