    Yes, the photo shoot was in Santa Monica and I asked the kiddos if they saw any celebrities walking around while they were there.

    Nope, just OUR STEVIE!!!

    Thanks, PIK!!!!

    It's not really news per se. But I was just outside in the rain with my dog standing around pretty still hoping she went poo. Anyhow, something came whizzing by my face that looked like a giant bug so I'm trying to not freak out and hope it just flies by but it didn't. It touched my nose and I was going to swat at it but had the passing thought of what if it survives then what I'm going to do? So I didn't. It backed away from me and I saw it was a tiny humming bird. And it sat in front of me staring at me for about 30 seconds. I got touched by a hummingbird. I think it gave up on me being a flower after it stared at me for awhile and it zipped off.

    Good thing that Hummingbird didn't land in your hair and pull it out by the roots. They have been known to dive bomb.

    I wanted to let you all know the update on my niece's condition. She's 6 years old now. As you know, she has Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, an inherited condition that causes tumors to grow in the brain and on organs. She has several in her brain and some near her kidneys. She's suffered from seizures since 2 months of age. Massive medications have kept her someone stable, but this year they stopped being able to control them very well. Everything has been considered, even surgery. She recently had an electrical device implanted that sends signals to the brain to prevent the seizures. (It's a wire and device under the skin on the neck and torso.) They are still adjusting the settings, but so far, so good. We are overjoyed that it looks so good. It's still early though. Here's a link about it.

    Due to her condition she has delayed development, but we work with her on many things. I was recently holding a cup that had various animals on it. I pointed to one and asked what it was and she said....DINOSAUR! I could barely believe it! She said a 3 syllable word. I was so proud for her. Her future is looking brighter everyday.

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. They really have helped so much!
