Thank you Kristin Davis

  • Orphaned Baby Elephants
    So nice to see that the babies finally have a prominent name attached to their plight. Please click the link (above) to view a page from the orphanage and at the bottom of the page is a link to a wonderful video Kristin made at the orphanage.

From Dame Daphne Sheldrick:

  • “Every person that buys ivory has killed an elephant and its dependent young and has caused immeasurable sorrow and suffering to many others.” Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick MBE, MBS


  • ... from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned baby elephants are rescued.

Watercolors from the Nursery

  • Each month I receive a lovely watercolor depicting a scene from the nursery. We have printed many of them out and placed them in frames to decorate our home.


  • Sammy loved kittens, tutus & ballerinas. But mostly he loved us. He died a peaceful death as an old man and left us with broken hearts.

Our Old Man

  • Baby Bear died a peaceful death just before Christmas 2009. He was almost 17. Bear was a warrior. A brilliant feline. A blessing to our lives.

Amy Arnaz

Julie Marie! I cant believe you cut your hair. I love your new look. From the photo I thought maybe it was in a bun but then I wondered? Glad you like it. I think it looks great. Ill tell Haley you sent her a Happy Birthday greeting. Enjoy your old skates. xoxo Amy

Linda Richardson

Happy belated birthday to your darling daughter..Love the picture booth pic.They are always so much fun!! Did you all go see Black Swan? Thinking that may be a good movie for a couple of ballerinas to see. Have a Great Holiday! Linda

Amy Arnaz

Thank you Linda. I will pass your Birthday wish to Haley. No, I have not seen Black Swan yet. I am going to see it next week with my girlfriend. We saw The Tourist but I was the only person of the 4 of us who liked it. I thought it was a fun movie but the others each had their reservations about it. Hmmphfff. Have a Merry Christmas. xoxo Amy

Karen DeCapite

Good morning Amy!
We both had Christmas babies! (I begged to have mine delivered before Christmas - how about you? I wasn't due until the 27th...)
Happy belated birthday to your adorable Haley.
I can't think of the last time I sat in a photo booth! I can't even think of the last time I saw one! LOL.
Hope you are having a quiet and peaceful and fun and SAFE New Years. We are headed to Palm Desert in the coach, and I cana't wait to ride my NEW BIKE! Whoo hooo!
Big New Year Hugs! Karen :)

Amy Arnaz

*Karen* Thank you for sending Haley your Birthday wish. No, I did not ask her to be delivered before Christmas, she decided that herself! The best Christmas present ever. And yes, we will have a quiet and peaceful New Years Eve. Thank you. Have a great trip and be safe. Have a Happy New Year. xoxo Amy


Birthdays can be such fun! Looks like you are enjoying this celebration for your sweet daughter!

Long skirts

My little mother Libby

  • Hi Mom! I hope you have somehow figured out how to read my blog. I have a new, bionic knee that should last till I'm 80. Wish you were here so we could share everything with you. Miss you lots.... Wish you would have lived longer so you could see your beautiful granddaughters all grown up.
