Last night dinner seemed a little quieter then usual. It took us a minute to realize Bekah was out like a light. This picture does not show it well but there is some of her dinner stuck to her neck... saving it for a midnight snack I guess.

The kids spent every second of Christmas day playing with new toys. Bekah loved her new baby doll and bottle. She sat on the couch and fed her baby for over an hour! It was precious.

We had a wonderful Christmas!
Brand new pj's for all three. Bekah loves jammies. She calls them her "happies". Hyrum, however, would rather sleep naked. We often go in at night to find him in just underwear. What is it about boys stripping down?

The boys gave us a full hour of blissful quiet while they played in the living room with new tractors. I love the hats!

Hello everyone.... we are well, we are safe, we are happy. Living in Alaska is far from everyone... but we love you all and I promise to try harder to keep in touch and keep up the blogging.

Jace is getting so big! He came up with the idea of building a fishing rod out of knex. I found him sitting on the stairs fishing one snowy afternoon. I guess living in Alaska, it's probably a good time to start learning the art of fishing.
The kids love being by Grandma and Grandpa. Bekah finally feels comfortable enough to show off her pearly whites. What a cheesy smile!!

Grandpa took us out on his beautiful sailboat before the weather turned cold. We sailed around big lake. The kids loved the boat, especially seeing the huge salmon on the bottom of the lake.

Jace uses his hands to make his own sunglasses when he thinks it is too bright to watch a movie in the car... maybe I should just break down and buy him some.

A great fact about Canada: Almost every hotel we stayed in had a water slide.... Canada has the right idea. After driving all day in the car, having a nice hotel with a water slide was a little slice of heaven for everyone.

Here is Daddy and the kids having a blast breaking the rules and making trains on the slide. We were the only ones in the pool... it was so fun, one of our favorite parts of the trip.

Here we are at summit lake in British Columbia. The weather turned from autumn colors to snow storm. Apparently the buffalo and caribou like the cold weather because we didn't see any animals until summit lake, during the snow storm. It was beautiful!

Movin' on up.... ALASKA!

A much needed update... here are some pics of our journey through the Alcan. One of the most beautiful trips... We went at the perfect time to see the fall colors.
