Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.Continue reading “Backyard Granddaughters”
Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain. I have been working in the flower bed and trying to put a garden in. It is a lot of fun planting all the different flowers and there are so many more things I can grow in the garden here.Continue reading “Keeping Busy”
Dan had a bunch of things to do yesterday, so David and I took care of the girls. We had a ton of fun with them.
The girls decided they could dress themselves.Continue reading “Day with Our Girls”
David and I enjoy watching our little girls, Bekka and Kate, growing up. The new things they do everyday just amazes us. We have many wonderful days with them.
The girls love hanging out on our stairs with Mom.
They really enjoy being outside and learning all about what you can do with a stick.
I hope you get a little joy out of these photos because they sure put a lot of joy in our life.
Thanks for stopping by!
I am so far behind in my blogging that I decided today is the day I need to catch up, so here we go starting with Christmas.
This is our granddaughter’s second Christmas they are 22 months old this year. They are so much more into it than last year. In fact, last year there was so much family gathered for their first Christmas they had to nap in between present opening.
Of course we have to start out with the decorating of the tree.Continue reading “So Far Behind”
Sitting on the couch as the house shakes, never looking up from what you are doing as you say to your husband, “I guess that was an earthquake.” He replies, “Yep”. No big deal just part of life in Alaska. The next morning you read in the paper that it was a 6.2 earthquake with the center in the Aleutian Chain. We forget up here when we see so much damage from smaller quakes that we are so spread out that it doesn’t really cause much damage to the cities and people. We are lucky in that way. I wonder if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound when no one is there to hear it.
