12 - 24" of Snow!

Need I say more????????? Not sure whether to laugh or cry! Guess I'll just hang in there while we go through our 4th break-up of the season! Bob's mom is coming in tonight for a visit. At least she'll get to see some snow! No problem! We can shop just as much when it's cold as we can when it's warm! :) And I'm sure we'll find her some moose, eagles and other wildlife for her to watch! Welcome to Alaska!

If this is Spring............

I'm dreading summer, if this is Spring! We've gotten between 8 and 10 inches of snow today and more is on the way!! Think I'll hibernate until summer really and truly gets here! Please...if you love me...and if you are in Texas....don't call me whining about the 90 degree temps!!!!

Ok - I guess I won't leave my trash out for the bears!

Read the article in the Anchorage Daily News. I'm glad I hate jogging - although I do love to get out and walk!

Temperature says 62!

Our temps hit 62 degrees today! Woo-hoo! We are getting 15 1/2 hours of daylight! The papers are stating that the bears are waking up and of course, they are hungry. They want us to be sure and keep trash cans "bear-proofed". The way I look at it, let the bears have the trash, then maybe he'll leave us alone!!!!!!! Either way, bears or not, we are very glad it is officially spring! I'm really tired of the pasty white look and am ready to get outside and thaw out a bit!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Last weekend, mom and dad celebrated 45 years of Wedded Bliss! Can't believe how much time has gone by and what mom and dad started! In 45 years they have produced 2 children, who produced them 5 grandchildren, who has produced them 1 great-grandson! Val and I are truly blessed to have such beautiful and special parents! We love you mom and dad! Congrats on your 45th!

Spring is here?

What a difference a week makes! Last week, 8 inches of snow dropped on us and this week...Spring is here! Today's high here at the house was 56 degrees! The snow is melting! We were able to open windows to let the fresh air in today. Bob washed the truck....I had forgotten what color it was and how pretty it could look when not caked in snow and ice! O.k. - it's spring heading into summer.....when are my guests getting here?! I'm ready, so come on up! Love and miss ya'll!

Tax Day in Alaska

Want to know what Tax Day looks like in Alaska? About 2 -3 inches more snow! Of course...I'd like blame God...but since that isn't the right thing to do...I'll just blame Bob, since he did take the snow tires off of the Expedition last weekend! Sort of like when you wash your car and the next day it rains?! Welcome Spring!!!!!!

Brayden, of course...who else

Take a look at our grandson! Thank goodness for technology! We can see video of our grandbaby. I'd like to say it is just like being there...........but it's NOT! It's only a "placeholder" until we can hold him again.

Enjoy video of the most beautiful baby on earth!

Such a little miracle

It's hard to believe how quickly you can fall in love with a tiny little bundle! Brayden Dean, our first grandbaby, was born February 21st, weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz and 20 1/4 inches long.

Our kids, Brad and Kristal, brought our new grandson up to AK for a visit on Easter. This kid will be a world traveler before he is a year old!!! (if Mimi and Papaw have anything to do with it!)

We love and miss you Brayden!
