Freezing cold sunsets...

So its has been frickin freezing here for the last week or so - below zero every day. It sucks. BUT it gives us some pretty incredible sunsets. So Sara and I took advantage of some spectacular views and snapped a couple pics along the Seward highway this evening. Gorgeous! You have to run back to the truck to warm up after about 5 minutes, but it was worth it!

Yeah, it's cold out there...

A few Christmas Pics

All my siblings came to Alaska for Christmas this year, and we had a great time heading to Alyeska resort in Girdwood for a couple days. It was great to do something a little different, even though I don't ski or snowboard anymore (I gave it up a few years ago, when I just decided I suck at it). Chris went snowmachining (or snow-mobiling for you non Alaskans) during the day, and all in all, it was a great time!

Megs and John pose with mom at Alyeska, before taking of to go boardThey are just SO excited to snow board!! (Never mind it was totally FREEZING cold outside...)

And to Guinness, the best gift of all, is the wrapping paper. He got a little pissed that I kept tying ribbons around his collar, but the paper made up for it...

Guinness does his famous "king of the mountain" pose with Cristen, smiling for the camera

Guinness loves to be the center of attention...

Dot and Chris

Thought everyone would like to see a couple of Dot and Chris' Christmas photos! It was FREEZING outside, and really foggy downtown, but we had a little fun anyway ;)

New Camera

Ok, I know I haven't updated in awhile - all the Christmas preparation is a lot of work!! So, my apologies - Renee! - for not getting any new posts up in awhile. I promise lots of fun new pictures soon, as I experiment with my new camera, a Nikon D90. It also takes HD video, so Chris is excited about that... expect some snow machine vids soon!

But for now, I was playing with it last night and captured Guinness surfing the web. I checked the history - - I think it's time we had "the talk..."
