Alright, I get the picture

So I've been slacking quite a bit on the blog. Now with the summer months of activities gone, tests over I MAY get a chance to upload pictures more often. We've been having a wonderful time here in Alaska! The kids are doing great. Catherine, 3, is growing so fast and learning so quick everything she can. She loves horses, or any type of animal! James, 2, loves trucks! He is in a big bed and almost ready to potty train. Claire, 10 months this weekend, is moving quick. She can climb the stairs, cruise around the furniture. It won't be long before she's on foot after her brother and sister. She loves to dance, too! So here are some shots of the kids from this summer. I have more recent ones, just not off the camera yet. These were from August. We had a wonderful summer of fun with friends and family!

Purple Flowers

Catherine had been asking for purple flowers for weeks. I thought that since she was sick I would finally give in. They totally brightened her day!

December 2010

Still trying to catch up on the photos and I haven't even looked at the videos yet!
Here's December...James had cereal for the first time and of course there's Christmas and all the fun it brings. The snow was wonderful and Catherine truly enjoyed it this year. We were blessed with our parents visiting throughout the month as well. David, how'd you escape the camera?

Moving across the country!

We found out last week that Jonathan's next duty station will be Ft. Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska. We will be reporting there in July and will be there for 3 years. Thank goodness it will be during the summer months when it can get to 90 degrees. As you can see it is really cold otherwise.

There are definitely some things to look forward to like the beauty there; living by North Pole; ice fishing; becoming experts about driving in snow/ice; kids sleeping a lot during the winter because of limited sun; and 18+ hours of sunlight during the summer.

The biggest adjustment is going to be living so far from family and friends. So come visit!

November 2010

Not as many pictures from this month. Being back to work is really taking it's toll. I'm way behind on notes because I refuse to bring work home or stay after. Catherine continues to learn so much and surprises us daily with her vocabulary.
Chriss was able to come at Thanksgiving. Catherine has now deemed her "Nina".
Catherine and James are getting along great. She is such a big help with him. We often will catch her giving him hugs and kisses. He absolutely adores her and will watch her constantly and laugh and smile when she comes near. They are so entertaining.

Below you'll see my Thanksgiving cake. I try to be creative each year with something different.
