Home Again!

So, I think this has been the coldest winter since we've lived here, and I'm not just saying that because I'm used to 70 degree weather:)  It's been around -20 the whole time.  Normally it's only that cold for a week or two :P
The cold makes for some pretty pictures though.
Nondalton all covered with snow.
A couple days after we got back Ms. Regina had us all over for supper.  We taught everyone some of the new dances we learned.
We had our first Shabbat at home in four months.  
Quentin made a very cool Yeshua menorah.
When we got home our water was frozen then a week later our power was out all day.  The joys of winter in Alaska. (cooking takes longer on the wood stove)
During the school year we baby sit a little girl for two of the teachers.  She has gotten so big since the last time we saw her!!  The little boys and Sarah love playing with her (and giving her mohawks).
It took her a little while to decide she likes the swing being as how her head is at the perfect height to get hit by it every time she walks by.
Sarah and the little boys are getting used to bringing the wood in everyday again.

A one day stomach flu has taken our family by storm, picking us off two or three at a time, well all except for me:)  Now I'll get sick since I wrote that :P  It's funny how different everyone is when they're sick.  Sarah was one of a group of three that got sick one night.  She just calmly says she has to throw up then finds "her" bucket and gets sick.  Benjamin stays asleep the whole time and you have to practically hold him over the bucket.  Caleb and David freak out and call for their mommy.  While we were in Israel we all got whooping cough.  I was the first one to get it and being as how it's called the 100 day cough I should be getting over it next week.  Yay, I'm happy.  Maybe I'll be able catch my breath during basketball practice:)

I made another movie out of our video clips from our trip back to Alaska.  It shows us visiting friends and family in the lower 48 and traveling through Canada.

Tell Quentin, good job. It's been-40 here every night. To tell the truth, I kinda miss being at the lodge, just don't feel the same. I hate being on the road system here. Can't wait to get my remote cabin done.
