Where Have I Been?!?!?!?

I've been working from home in Fairbanks, that's were I have been.  Let me catch you all up a little since I last posted back in August.  The months of August and September were spent house hunting.  We did not have any luck finding something that we thought we could work with.  There was plenty out there, but nothing screamed "buy me I'm your new home"!  We had the opportunity to hear Amy Roloff speak about the Americans with Disabilities Act.  For those of you who don't know who Amy is, she and her family are the stars of TLC's Little People, Big World.  Eric went out on a solo moose hunt towards the end of September and was rewarded with an awesome moose.  The antlers measure 76", that's 6 ft, 4 in.

In October, I was able to get back to SD and MN for a few days since I missed out on my annual trip in August because of the move/house hunting.  My aunts put together a 90th birthday party for my grandma.  She doesn't turn 90 until the end of December, but they wanted to get as many of the grandkids home as the could before the weather got wintery.  I've seen more cousins that I have not seen in years, a few probably in a decade or more!  The rest of October seems to have passed without much excitement.

Here is a picture of all of the grandkids and great-grandkids that showed up for my grandma's party.  The sweet, adorable little vikings boy is my youngest nephew.  He's such a sweetie!

November started to get a little more exciting.  Early in the month the local PBS station brought Red Green to town.  Of course we had to take the opportunity to see the hilarious Red Green.  Since it was an early gift for Eric's birthday, we did the whole VIP thing and got to meet Red Green and get our picture taken with him.  Towards the middle of the month, we took a huge step and put an offer in on a 7.5 acreage (with house, shop and greenhouse) about 10 miles from town.  After a counter back from the sellers, we are in the process of inspections of all sorts.  I'll keep you all posted.  We had a simple, quiet Thanksgiving with the upstairs neighbors.

Here's a picture of Eric and I with Red Green.  If you don't know who he is, look him up!
