Well it looks like Adelaide is cutting her 3rd tooth . I think I'll call the dentist about this one though! Instead of it being an upper front tooth, it's the upper one to the left of the front teeth...I wonder if that is normal? I've only heard of the bottom & top front teeth coming in before anything else. Oh well it will be what it will be &, if this is the biggest of our worries won't we be lucky parents!
Martin called at 9pm tonight needing a hand unloading 60 blocks of frozen dog meat...He isn't someone that we would ever say "no" to when he asks for help. He is such a good friend & he rarely asks for anything! Sean helped me put the girls to bed before heading out but wouldn't you know it, Adelaide had OTHER plans & sleep was NOT something that she had factored in!! Playing with the cat, having a snack, playing with Mummy....THAT was more what SHE had in mind!!
Tomorrow is suppose to be a Whitehorse day...the day we get our new dryer. I'm pretty excited about it but I have to say...Sears is a bit of a wild card here! I can't believe how bad the service has been! From overcharging us, to not providing a bill of sale, to bring in the wrong product & leaving it up to ME to figure out something was wrong, to taking an extra month to set things right! They wouldn't get away with that foolishness in the South! However, tomorrow I can put THAT experience behind me & get on with washing & DRYING our laundry!! Now we won't have clothes lines running all over the place in the cabin! What a treat!!
Speaking of "treats" with the 31st quickly approaching, I've not done anything about costumes for the girls BUT we are going to take a dog team to Claire & Remy's for a surprise dogsled ride...Whatever you do, DON'T tell them...Like I said, it's a surprise! It's Claire's birthday & her party is Friday after the town fireworks! We aren't taking the girls trick or treating (heck they can't eat candy yet so we'd look rather silly looking for handouts) but we are taking them to Claire's Halloween/Birthday party...they'll be dressed as Mushers with their own headlamps, a dog team & a sled! Hopefully I'll be able to get a new camera in town tomorrow (remember, I broke mine earlier this week) so that I'll be able to get some photos!
Well Sean is back from Martin's & is now out in the yard feeding the multitudes. The girls are finally asleep. Turned out Adelaide was up an extra hour just refusing to sleep but, sounds like I finally got her down successfully!! Hopefully the feeding ruckus won't wake her up again!! And, hopefully Sean won't be too much longer out there...it's already 10:30 & he'll be bushed tomorrow for having a late night tonight!
Guess that's it for now....The cabin is settled in for the night, the fire is burning & the dogs are quiet (indicating that their meal has been served & Sean will soon be in) So, with that, I'll wish you all a peaceful sleep where ever you may be.....

The yard is home to the "Dancing Paws" too but THAT sign has yet to be created...Hummm one day...At least for now, their pen is built!!
Beside the sign is the lamp post...well, maybe a lamp, without it's post ;) But, post or not, it looks glorious on a cold winter's night, burning for friends!!
This would be "haw" & yes, you guessed it, that would be "Left" in Musher talk!!I absolutely NEVER get sick of this view!! These are the very mountains that my old cast iron tub use to face when it was on the front step...ahhhh...I miss my outdoor tub & especially in winter!! No bugs & warm water up to your eyeballs...it's like a temporary ticket to Heaven!!
I then love to nestle back into my cabin, with cozy slippers on by the wood stove...
- Still snowing in the Junction!!
- 4 new inches over night / over a foot in total
- Puppies are BACK in their pen after a well planned break-out & romp to our neighbour's, in the glorious new snow!!
- Kids are up & HAPPILY munching on their Multi-Grain Cheerios
- Snow is STILL falling...
- Cabin is semi- tidy
- My camera is BROKEN :( I dropped it on my way out to see the dogs :(
- Still snowing !!!!!
- I'd take a picture of the new snow but...my camera sadly is STILL BROKEN!!
- Looks like you're in for a series of OLD PHOTOS!! ... but not till nap time :)
- Oh by the way...did I mention that...
.......It's STILL SNOWING !!!!!

THIS is the BEST!! :-)
Now you don't...
The Outhouse...Da Daaaa !!
Now it's HERE....
Now it's NOT !!
Oh...there it is again....
in a MUCH prettier place :):):)
How sweet :)
The new gravel (& snow) covered driveway!!
BEFORE the hill as you come in :):):)
No more "near misses" !!!
the Supervisor of the entire project!!
Who I might add, looks like he is fading into the new snow like the remaining yard clutter !!
Not bad for a weekend's effort!!
That's it for know

Ivy, Beatle, & Spruce are all pretty excited about the activity around here as of late...they know SOMETHING is up...
I just LOVE Beatles Blue eye :) Sean keeps trying to bargain with me to claim her as his own..."No way buddy...I agreed to marry you, but I have my limits!!"
Beatle Bug isn't hyper...Nooooooooooo!!!! wiggle waggle pounce pounce pounce!
Ivy...an odd looking gal but sweeeeet! I can see her being a cabin dweller one day! She gets one of the prime real-estate lots in the new pen...Those are reserved for Leaders!!
Spruce is a giant! A gentle giant!! Oh...I can't wait to play with her in the new spot!!
Ivy has to go to higher ground to avoid getting picked on 1/2 of the time! She'll finally get some peace of mind when they are finally staked out with their own food bowls & houses!!
Beatle says..."It's all about MEEEEEE"
Jack is such a sweetie....I can't wait to spend quality time with this guy :) Right now Jack & Cedar are separated from the rest of my team (tucked away with Sean's dogs...poor fellas'...oops...did I actually type that out loud??)...soon that will be fixed! YAHOO!!!
Here's Taz...NOT one of my Dancing Paws but a cutie-pie none the less! And she does live here....In fact she more Human than Husky!!
So ...now you've met a few of my "Other Children"...notice the family resemblance?? I'm not so sure where they get their stellar looks from...Sean or myself!!
And here is Sean...more husky than Human...I mean...more lovable than most humans...ya...that's what I meant ;-)
Heck I married him...he MUST be lovable!!
& besides...HE is the one doing all of the hard labour around this place lately!! & it's because of Sean that my dogs will finally be living in the nicest part of the dog yard in the very near future!!
Thanks Honey...You're the BEST!!
& we can't forget the "Puppy Dogs"...aka
Daddy's little helpers ;-)
