Family Visit

We went shopping Saturday downtown where there was a large building full of local vendors with booths set up.
Me, Rochelle, Raleigh, Mom, and Lilly We did a lot of hanging out at home since the weather was bad Monday and Tuesday. There was freezing rain instead of snow, so schools were even shut down.
Rochelle and Jackson

We had dinner at home every night. We had salmon, halibut, moose loaf, and kabobs made out of moose steak.
Raleigh and Jackson
Dad did a lot of this. He also exercised a lot too.
Raleigh and Rochelle straightened my hair one day.
Not sure why this picture is turned like this. Anyway, Wednesday we went snowmobiling. Here we are geared up for the cold.

I was so cold. My fingers and toes were numb.

For Thanksgiving we went to Seven Glaciers Restaurant on the top of Alyeska Ski resort. This is the tram we took to get up there.
This is everyone at Thanksgiving. It was a very cool place to go to and eat, the only downer was that is took FOREVER to get our food!
My family left at 5:00 on Thanksgiving afternoon. Because it took so long at the restaurant they almost missed their flight by 4 minutes! The Parks invited us to come over after my family left, so here is a picture of us hanging out with them that night.


Cortney had Sarah Taylor on November 23rd! Check out her blog for more pics, but I had to put one up since I am so excited for her! My prayer group: Neve, me, Lindsay, and Devon.
God has really blessed me with these 3 girls since moving to Alaska. Earlier this month we had a prayer group in Devon's parent's hot tub then went inside and had a wonderful home cooked meal prepared by Devon's mom. I wish I had taken a picture because it was so relaxing and beautiful sitting outside in a hot tub surrounded by snow covered eveything. A winter wonderland here

Lilly & 1st snow

Lilly is the newest member of our family. She is 9 years old and is a native Alaskan with an Eskimo backgroud. The Lord seemed to just place her in our laps. If you want more details, I'll need to send you and e-mail , so just let me know.

This past week Anchorage has had it's "first snow". Here is a sample of what it looks like...
