Surrounded by music in our house day in and out, Maxxi is really finding his voice and rhythm.  The music is surely alive and thriving, with Los Gatos Negros going full throttle, mama learning to play bass guitar in the band, and the ever present uke and drums duo.  Maxxi lets it all swirl around him, and occasionally fires back his own magic versions of our favorite torch songs.  Witness the awesome-ness that is my boy.  I sure do love him.

My Dad turned 60 on Friday, and we threw him the ass-kickin’-est party e’er there was… a full on rock concert at Sayulita’s amazing Brisamar Palapa, with Mariachis, and live performances by Los Fantasmi Fantasmas (me, Gabbi & my dad Billy), Los Tikkilyches of Sayulita, Los Gatos Negros de Sayulita (yes, I am now in this band singing backup and soon to be playing bass on my sweet new short scale after I get a few lessons in me), and my dad’s own Junkyard Jane.  Best party ever, and most fun I have had since my wedding, surely.  Here is a video of us, Los Fantasmi Fantasmas.  [I am pasting the link instead of embedding, as the embedded version on this page doesn’t show the full widescreen picture, so you will need to watch it directly from youtube… xo]

Gatos Negros video to follow as soon as we figure out how to upload it’s absolute epic-ness, which is, well, epic.

And here is us at Don Pato’s open mic last Tuesday, our debut public performance (my new electric ukulele ROCKS!):
