Record temps set

Contrary to what you may believe from the title, we are actually setting record highs! Today is the 3rd day in a row that we have set records. All of our snow is pretty much gone and the river is having a hard time freezing up.

You'll never guess what we came home to after work tonight. We had a bag of marshmallows sitting out on the counter that was open. Skeeter is my plastic bag kitty and low and behold the bag was on the floor in the spare bedroom. See pictures below. She actually ate a few of them!!!!!!

What an adorable little stinker!

Other than that nothing much is going on here. I'll post more later~

Well, I changed my blog layout again. The other one was just too boring. Maybe over Christmas break I'll try to develop my very own template/design. Who knows.

Christmas is in the Air

Today definitely has the feel to Christmas. The trees were covered with that beautiful thick frost all day long. I got our tree put up yesterday and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself, but I'll let you all be the judge of that.

I really love how the red/gold bows pop on the tree. I have gold beaded garland and white lights.

If you look close under the tree, you can see that we have a few presents, but it seems that Chubbs has chosen this spot as his new favorite resting place.

Well, it's almost time to get ready for bed. Chat with you all later~

Thanksgiving #1

Eric and I had our first together as a married couple yesterday. We celebrated Thanksgiving with a couple of friends. We had the whole sha-bang of food.

I just got off of Messanger with my sisters. That was awesome. We have decided that we will try to get together once a week and "chat". It was alot of fun.

I'm pulling out the christmas decorations today and am trimming the tree. Actually I took a break from that to update this. Once everything is decorated I'll post a picture.

Look into my eyes, you are getting sleepy

I'm not actually going to try to hypnotize you, but I did get this email the other day that I just had to share with all of my 2 blog readers. Okay, all 3 of you (just kidding, I better have more than that!). All you have to do is stare at thing pictures for a little while and you should eventually see a giraffe appear.

I had to laugh when I got this. I was drinking water and almost spit it out. If it doesn't work for you and you don't eventually see the giraffe, let me know and I'll email it to you.

Well, it's Friday and it's almost time to be done with work for the week. I can't wait. I'm ready for the weekend. I had to spend some time getting Travel approval for a conference next month in Portland, OR. I'll be there from Dec 9-12.

That's the exciting news happening here. I'll hopefully writing more exciting news later~

Blog Changes

Okay, so I was bored tonight, so I decided to change the look to the blog. What do you think?????? Who know, I may change it back. Not a lot is going on here.

I had to deal with one of the schools today. That was 10 minutes of trying to convince them that they need to turn the data in so I can send it in to the Department of Education so we can continue to keep our funding. I hope I convinced them. I guess I'll see in a few weeks if I get any paperwork back from them. I can see where they are coming from because in the past the program hasn't been able to help all of the students that apply to come to the camps. I'm trying to figure out some way that we can include more students without breaking our budget. I did that last summer and was told that I have to make sure it does not happen again. Ah, the dilemma's (is that spelled right?) of trying to accomodate the vast lands of the YK Delta without a road system.

Well, it's almost time for blogger to have a scheduled outage, so I will get this posted before then. Talk with you all later~

Happy Halloween.....a couple days late

Happy Halloween!!!

This is one of the cards I made at the Stampin' Up party. I've never really thought about making Halloween cards, but I didn't feel like making Christmas cards yet and those were the only stamps available for us this time.

Well, Eric finally comes home tomorrow night. He's been in West Virginia at training for work for the last 3 weeks.
I know this is a short post but I've got a lot of things to do before Eric's flight gets in. Later~
