Playing at daycare

Ellie's teacher snapped these pics at daycare this week. Noah and Ellie love to play together there, especially outside.


31 years old already!!!

Flowers for my birthday from my hubby! Beautiful!!!

A day at the spa for my birthday. The massage & facial were my favorite! The pedicure & manicure were a treat too! It was fun to be spoiled on my birthday!

Six years together!

Hard to believe that it has been six years of marriage together! Headed out for a date night of dinner at Pagoda & a movie to celebrate!

Fishing fun!

Our friends from Virginia, Rick & Wendy Wimer and their family, Randy & Lona--came to visit Alaska this month and we had a blast visiting with them on Monday & Tuesday. 

Jon, Kaden & the men went fishing last night and had a blast. Caught about 4 fish. 

The ladies, myself & our youngest two went to Santa Clause House in North Pole and went shopping downtown in Fairbanks. We had a lot of fun too! Even saw Santa! 

Thankful for friends who visit! 

Valdez is beautiful

Being silly with mommy!

Ellie puked twice. Don't know if it was a tummy bug or if she was seasick but she wasn't having the best afternoon.
