Snug as a bug in Grandad's arms! (Adelaide)
Now THIS is our Aunt Maureen !!! We think SHE should move to the Yukon !!!!! We'd even chop her wood to keep her warm & then we'd snuggle under an Aunt Mary afghan with her while we watch the Northern Lights together!!!Now Aunt Maureen, we wouldn't offer that to just anybody ya know!!
Meet Sarah & Sarah...Can YOU see the family resemblance??
1/2 boy 1/2 husky...sounds like MY kind of kid!!
Two for two
Someone raided Grandee's stash!!! Can you guess who might be the guilty ones???
The girls & I bundled up in the front of the truck (the pink blankets from Aunt Karen & the girls are AWESOME!!) and we cheered on all who participated from the starting line, with the best (and warmest) seats in the house! Sean took Taz into the 5k pet race & placed 5th...Adelaide, Sarah & I cheered Daddy, & Taz, in with glee (I needn't mention that there were only 5 entrants) While some crossed the finish line with frost bitten noses & cheeks, the girls & I remained in the warmth of the truck where we welcomed all kinds of friendly visitors to our back seat!! It was tons of fun seeing mushing friends that we've missed all winter!! It was even more fun to take the girls to their first race!!
Did I mention that Jack Frost has moved in? It's to be -40 ish all week!! Enough is enough!! That pesky fellow can play all he wants...I'm NOT letting him mess with MY limited social life!!! It's off to a friend's tomorrow to watch L.O.S.T !!! I can't wait!!! Besides, we ARE in the YUKON, right? What's a wee bit of weather??
Tip: When YOU next have -40 at YOUR cabin...
Boil a pot of water...throw it into the air, one coffee mug at a time. It will hiss as it turns into a wall of steam... leaving only the odd "thud" as tiny bits of slush hit the ground!!! The entertainment value is priceless!!! OK, so you don't get the sound effects on video BUT you do get to see the wall of fog when we open the door!!!!!
-43.5 (in the sun) & proud to be a Yukoner
Well?? How is Sawyer?? Did he miss our little date last night? I can see it now....in the middle of the big season's opener the camera pans to the lead sexy guy, Sawyer. He pauses and says, "But where is Heather? How can we go on without her support?" In the background you can hear Lock gasping in disbelief..."You mean she's not watching? My God man, we can't go on!" All the while sounds, of Freckles & the rest of the crew weeping, can be heard off set... Darn weather.....It had better be warmer for NEXT weeks episode!! Oh, I sure hope someone found a spare tape to record it all for me!!
Now that I am over that...I was thinking of going to the cabin today but my pillow seems SO much more cozy this morning & the babies are sleeping :) Time for a nap of my own!! Maybe this afternoon when Sean gets home we can go to Madley's to do some shopping...Tomorrow is to be the last day they are open then NO MORE STORE FOR THE JUNCTION!! Oh well...we'll manage without Madley's no doubt!! In the mean time, maybe we can score some good deals today :)
Cheers family and friends,
I'm off to catch some warm ZZZZZ's
PS: As soon as I laid down, you guessed it, the babies BOTH woke up & started crying...so much for my nap!!!!!

This is what we look like on limited sleep!!!!!
Funny, this morning at about 9 a.m., it felt like the middle of the night!!!!! The Yukon sun is on it's way back but it's still dark then & our sleep is no longer unbroken!
When DO parents finally get a full night's sleep again?? Can ANYBODY tell me???
Now THIS I LOVE!!Dad teaching a Dad-in-waiting, how to change a VERY poopy diaper!! So Sean, all of those years scooping in the dog yard have paid off!!
Here, Adelaide (I'm pretty sure this is Adelaide) and I look a bit more rested :) There is NOTHING in this world that is more perfect than snuggle time!
Well time to sign off...Dad & I are off to the Nurses Station to get the girls' immunizations started! Poor wee babes :( 4 shots each :( Such brave little souls!!
Darwin is there to support his buddy!!

Can you believe our Mum stuffed us in STOCKINGS & put us under a TREE and who is this Santa guy we keep hearing about anyways??
It's Christmas day & we can't wait to see Auntie
Laura!!!!! Hurry up Mum & Dad!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (thank God they sleep in the truck...could you handle 100 miles of tantrum crying?)
YAHHHHH...we're here!! & Laura is soooooooo cute in her pretty hat!! We look kinda funny on our sides though!!
Yummy!! Christmas dinner is awesome!!! And there are so many red & green sparkly things to look at, at Laura's house!! My sister & I are still trying to figure out just who this Santa guy is & why it is SO important we behave!!
Now THERE is Jon (we LOVE boys in kilts!!)!! It's New Years Eve & everyone came to our place...We love it when the Yukon family comes over...it's an endless snuggle fest!
Being so adorable is tough!!
...Something tells me these little stocking stuffers found the whole Holiday ordeal rather exhausting! Hopefully next year they won't be too big for such parental indulgences!!
