...from the Far North......

1. We are home....in Alaska....and so blissfully happy.

2. Can I just give a HUGE shout-out to the Air Force....? We are staying at Elmendorff, rather than Ft Richardson, in Anchorage, due to no room at the Inn. And man, did we luck out. The North Star Inn is cheaper, BIGGER, nicer, and a dream come true as we settle in to prepare to spend a month in Winter Wonderland..... $52.00 a night for a 3 bedroom apartment-style hotel room. It has two TV's, A KITCHEN, a W/D set up, and a MAID.....

3. We unveiled the Wii today. The kids were so psyched. They were actually speechless at first. We hid it for FIVE MONTHS...That's a personal record for me....

4. It's presently like 9 degrees......man, I miss REAL cold.

5. I will have photos to share lataer. But I must admit that my blog will be neglected severely as we hang out as Family and soak up this special time. We have school work, fitness goals, outdoor recreation (snowboarding, anyone??) and just general relaxing. So don't freak if two weeks pass and I am still silent :)

Oh Happy, happy Winter....

A full month in Alaska! Is this vacation? Why Alaska? Just out of the blue? Are you moving to Washington from there or coming back to Virginia? Sounds like you got a great deal there. Enjoy and relax.
