Mom liked it…Dad liked it covered in ketchup…but no one else liked it. Lol. But hey..we can now say we have eaten grizzly bear!

In other news, I got my own vehicle! Yay!! Brandon & I went to town (aka Fairbanks) and bought me this…

I hope this post finds everyone happy and well!

Annabelle has to be wherever I am. So she’s sitting in the chair next to me as I type on the computer. 🙂

Our first Alaskan snow!!

24 Sep

Today is our first Alaska snow! Mom & Dad are in Las Vegas with 100° while the rest of the family is here in Alaska watching the first snow fall….something’s wrong with that picture. Lol. 🙂

For some reason WordPress (my host blog) won’t let me post a video. But I did post the snow video on my Facebook page if anyone wants to check it out there.

Love to all!!

Hill hiking in Healy

11 Sep

Brandon, Dad, crazy sister #4, and I went mountain climbing last night. 🙂 Well not really mountain climbing..more like mountain hiking.

Disregard Brandon’s creepy eye in this picture. Lol.

The blue speck at the bottom of the mountain is Dad’s truck.

We had a great time! We made it to the edge of the tree line. But we didn’t quite make it to the snow at the top of the mountains. Our goal is to make it to the top.

As we made our way up the mountain we could barely make out the blue speck of Dad’s truck.

Peek at the Pipeline

2 Sep

Dad, Mom, Brandon, and I went to a wonderful dinner last night in Fairbanks. On our way back home we stopped at a viewing site of the Alaskan pipeline.
It was really interesting. The pipeline is 800 miles long. If you zoom in on some of the pictures on here you can read the information about the pipeline.

P.s. School has started and I am a part time special education paraprofessional. I also just got hired as the part time Title I reading teacher. Yay! 🙂

Say some prayers that Brandon finds a full time year-round job. He is currently working in maintenance at the Denali Princess lodge but that will end in October.

God takes care of everything! I don’t know why I ever worry!

Love to all!
