Okay, so I know everyone is probably so sick of me complaining about living in Alaska, but with that said let me complain some more. :) I'm FREEZING!!! (...already) As I let the dog out this morning I shivered as the cold breeze came through the house. I glanced at the thermometer and saw that it was a "cozy" 19 degrees. And as I sit here and write, wrapped up in a big hoodie, it hasn't even got above freezing yet and it's 2:00 in the afternoon. All I have to say is BRRR!!! I'm so not ready for winter. Not to even mention the fact that it'll get 60-70 degrees colder before it gets any warmer. YUCK!!! Why oh why do these crazy people live here??? The sad part is I really like winter, I do - just not 9 months of winter. Oh well, I guess I'll have to deal with it cause I'm pretty sure I'm stuck here. So be sure to send your warm thoughts my way.

On a different note, I have to brag about the little one - I'm so not a proud mama or anything. But yesterday one of the lady's at church came over to say hi to Brianna and I. She was introducing her husband to me who I hadn't met yet and as she reached out to hold Bri she told her husband that she thinks that Brianna is the cutest baby in the ward. How sweet. I mean of course I think she's the cutest baby in the world - but it was fun to hear that other people think she's just as cute.

And again, on a totally different subject (this is starting to become a really random post), but I thought it was kinda funny (and probably the only one that will think it's funny). But my Miss Daizy dog has been outside for about a half hour under one of the trees in our yard with a squirrel treed. I think she's patiently waiting for her dad to come shoot it out of the tree for her. Hey, she might not be a very good raccoon / cougar hunter - but she's a heck of a squirrel dog. What a goober!

I hate when it's cold....hence I live in Utah...I know it gets cold here but nothing like it does and will there. I'm sorry you have to deal with it. Hopefully ya'll don't freeze. I would want to kill (not literally) myself if we had a winter that long.

Yes, your babes is super cute. She is super chubby too. It's ok to brag about your baby....we all do!!! LOL

I don't like the cold. Hence the reason I live in CA! How come you are in Alaska anyway?

To answer Holly's question. We're here in Alaska because my husband is in the Air Force and we're stationed up here - so I'm kinda stuck if I want to live with my husband.:) But I do wonder about leaving sometimes when it's -50 degrees. Ha,Ha,Ha!!!
