Are you going crazy trying to get ready for Christmas? I know I am. This will be the first year since the kids all left home that we are all going to be together, well except for the oldest. That makes 4 children, 2 son in laws, 1 daughter in law, 2 grandsons, 6 granddaughters, my oldest daughter’s in laws and her brother in law and my oldest grandson’s girlfriend. I believe that comes to 19. What a wonderful Christmas we will have, but getting ready is the hard part. Continue reading “Christmas Craziness!”

Saturday night I went to my first women’s roller derby. It was a lot of fun but not as rough as I remember watching on TV when I was a kid. We had free tickets because Midnight Sun Brewing brewed a beer for them and David helps with the tour there every Thursday night. Anyway I hope you enjoy the photos.
Have you ever been to a roller derby? Let me know by leaving and answer in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by.
I have been waiting for this storm that was supposed to hit last night. Three inches of snow they said and I am still waiting 24 hours later. We still don’t have any snow and it is warming up. I can say though the sunset was beautiful.
These are all taken off my back deck.
It is 37 degrees, 5:30 at night and dark that is Alaska for you. It is so much warmer than I can remember in a long time.
What is it like where you live?
Thanks for stopping by.
I know that you probably get tired of looking at photos of my beautiful granddaughters but here I go again. Oh yea, all my kids, well except the oldest, will be home for Christmas that means photos of more grandchildren so look out.

While babysitting the girls showed me how good they can make their bouncers go.
Before costumes Grandma decided to give them their first bath in the big tub. They really enjoyed this.
Then it was time for me to get their costumes on Continue reading “Halloween with Twins”
Saturday, October 20th, was our second anniversary. David tells me last week, “I have a 3 day weekend. Do you want to go camping for our anniversary? ” I reply, “Hell Yes!” Please excuse my language but I was that excited.
We usually have snow by now and the camping is over for the year. The weather has been so nice we decided to head out. David wanted to talk to a blacksmith in Palmer about a fire tool he wanted him to make. We found his place but he was gone for the day. We decided to drive around to look for some place to have a nice dinner on Saturday night. Continue reading “A Day That Won’t Be Forgotten”
My oldest son has been going through a hard time lately. I called him and had been drinking. Of course, that may him tell me how he was feeling like no one cared about him.

Well I was going to just be lazy today and enjoy my granddaughters before I fly out tonight. Instead they were being so good,
I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.
I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.
