Eric and I spent a quiet morning hanging around the house. About 11:00 am, Eric went out to check on a few of his muskrat traps. At 1:00 pm, we got in the vehicle and drove over to Greg & Amy Ponsness' house for a mid-afternoon turkey feast. The dessert spread alone had 7 different types of pies/cakes/bars. We met some new people that work with Greg at the pharmacy at YKHC. We sat and talk and then played some dominoes. Greg & Amy have 1 boy Lars (10) and 2 adorable girls, Ashley (8) & Karlyn (6). Karlyn's birthday is the day after Eric's. We teased her that she was going to have a joint birthday party with Eric.
Well, I think it's time to relax a little and then go to sleep. I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day.

We had our Thanksgiving potluck at work yesterday. Oh my gosh, did we have food! One thing we know how to do well is potlucks. We had it all from bacon wrapped scallops to pumpkin pie! I'm so excited we get off early tomorrow from work!!!!

This is actually a very practical gift for him because during the winter he likes to go out trapping on the snowmachine. He can send me email messages be to me to let me know he's okay. I was able to get a good price on this because I'm a certified Hunter Instructor. Plus, 10% of my purchase goes back to the IHEA (International Hunter Education Association). I also got a year of tracking (normally $50) for free. Yeah IHEA!!!!
Well, I better go check on the Angel Food cake that we are having as a birthday cake. Catch y'all later!

Now back to Eric and I. We didn't win any guns :( We bid on a few things in the auctions, but stuff went pretty high. It was mostly going to get out of the house and talk to people you know. Eric was the only person from his office to go. There were a few people from the College, maybe 6 of us. I wish more people would get involved with events like this, especially since gun accidents are a major cause of alot of emergency room visits. There was just 2 boys up in Little Diomede, which is an island really close to Russia, that were playing around with guns. It was loaded and one accidently shot another and he died. We always hear about the bad things like this, but we never hear about good things. Good things which are actually because of programs like the Eddie the Safety Eagle program that the FNRA does. A girl up in Aniak (a village upriver from us) had spotted a loaded gun of some sort somewhere and called the State Troopers to let them know. This was directly because of the the FNRA program.
Anyways, that was my Saturday evening. I'll write more later!

We had a pretty good halloween up here. At work we always have a halloween party. A good portion of the faculty, staff and students dress up. Here is a picture of me as Wilma Flintstone with one of our Financial Aid coordinators as a punk rocker. She wanted to go for the spiky hair look, but couldn't get it to stand.
This picture is of our other Financial Aid coordinators. She came dressed as a tornado. She used her kids toys with pins and thread to hold them on. She also did a great job of getting her hair to go straight up.
All of my hard work must have paid off on the costume. I ended up tying for Most Creative costume as voted by Employees and students. I ended up tying with Jaclyn the Tornado.
