For the month of love, we allowed the models (with Mom’s help) to choose their favorite outfits from retailers in our community and this is what they chose! See them on pages 51-53 in our February issue.  Thanks, Tabitha, Michael, Zachary, Kevin, Anaiyah, Junior, David, Seth, Brandon and Brooklyn! And as always, thank you to our wonderful photographer, Marina! Love to all!

February is for the Birds: Family Fun with Our Feathered Friends                    February is for the birds. In the United States and Canada, February is both National Bird Feeding Month and the Great Backyard Bird Count. What a great time to get to know the birds in your back yard! If you don’t know a sparrow from a swallow, don’t worry. Part of the fun is learning—and you and your kids can do it together. read more.. pg 10-11

No more battling your kids to take responsibility for cleaning their teeth or going back and “doing it again.” read more... pg 44
