We had a Visitor

Last night and this morning we had the same moose come and visit.  This first picture if from this morning.  You can't really tell but the moose has a metal cone / ring thing used to help plant grow straight stuck on its head.  This was the second one that got stuck, both eventually came off.  Moses loved seeing the moose and kept pretending to shoot the moose dead.

Thank you Medders!

Winter Begins

Winter is coming down the mountains.  I spent the weekend getting ready.

Getting the snowblower out.

Taking down the trampoline.

Covering the well-house area, and putting the outdoor toys away.

And starting fires again!

This is going to be one long hard winter.  But by the grace of God our little family will make it through!

My Birthday Weekend

This last weekend I took the four kids to Alyeska Hotel to have some much needed fun.  It is stressful to take four kids to a pool by myself - but we had a lot of fun and just hung out.  We also went to Virgin Creek Falls and Whittier while there.  Here are some pictures.

The above picture is probably my favorite.  She has such a pretty smile!

And I love love love this picture.  I like how you only see the baby's face.  Quite cute.

Lake Louise

This last weekend we went to Lake Louise to a friends' cabin.  Had to snowmachine out there.  Had a blast all weekend playing games, playing outside, snowmachining, snowshoeing, and just hanging out.  Joachim is quite the snowmachine operator - and a speed demon.  When he was in control he had the sled going about 65 mph through the powder!

Both girls fell asleep on the ride back to the truck from the cabin!

The Stoic's 7th Birthday!

The Stoic celebrated his 7th birthday in the beginning of April.  He had some friends come over after school on Friday and spent the afternoon playing.  The next day Grandma and Grandpa came up from Homer and Aunt Cyp came over for a small family gathering.
