So it's been a while

But hey, I forgot my password what can I say??

Kaeden's first birthday was today. I don't know if I have ever been happier than seeing my boy open presents and tear into a chocolate cake.

The pictures and videos can be seen on this site. Enjoy.

Stone Age

Ugh. No internet, phone or TV until the ground thaws out long enough for them to dig and make the lines. That will hopefully be by the end of the month.

We got moved in all good and stuffs, Chad and I have just been unpacking and trying to get everything all settled in. That's really all there is to update for now. As soon as we get up and running I'll be posting pics of the new house!

becoming an eskimo isn't easy

I'm so sorry for the lack of updates, it's amazing how much stuff has to be done in such a short period.

Here's the Kaeden update:
Growing a bushel. He learned how to flush the toilet this week, and is working on learning the word "no". My gosh, this kid loves to go for the dog food. He seems to take things in stride on some days, but others he is just so upset. A combo of teething, not having any toys, and living in a 300 sq ft area; I'm sure. Here is a pic I just took, sorry it's sideways I don't feel like changing it.

Here's the Chad and I update:
We are fine. In fact, we really love what we have seen so far. It's beautiful up here. The air is really dry here, so it doesn't seem as cold but its doing a number on my skin.

Here's the housing situation:
Everything was accepted. We were supposed to take early occupancy Saturday, but some paper work on the new construction wasn't finished so we have to wait until Wednesday. We will probably stay with our friends on base for a couple days so that we can actually cook a good meal or two and not be in a hotel for once in a month. We had the walkthrough today for the house, so everything seems peachy.

We saw moose today. In fact I took this pic while we were stopped at a red light. Crazy huh?

I am thinking of getting a vanity plate for my car since they are all the same price here....any one have any suggestions???

Short update!

Okay our offer was accepted although we haven't seen it on paper, so while things aren't official yet it is good enough for me! Here are some pics of our new place.

The specs for those who don't know:

It's considered a condo, so we are in like a duplex style. It is new constuction, we don't even have a driveway yet (haha), almost 1600 sq ft, 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath, 2 car garage. In the neighboorhood there will be 15 units (so 30 couples) living there. There is an elementry school RIGHT across the street so there are no sex offenders close by. Also if we stay here when Kaeden goes to school I can watch him walk across the street right into the front door. Just keep praying things go our way.

Long story short...

We are here. It's beautiful. Looking for a house to live in. Put in offer today. Find out tomorrow if it's accepted. Say prayers. In extended stay hotel now. Really need to do laundry. Tired of fast food. Kaeden is teething horribly. Miss my best friend, and Ella too. Boobs.

The last olive garden

Since there isn't an olive garden in Anchorage we just gorged ourselves on soup, salad and breadsticks. Oh, and I can't forget the bellini tea. We really haven't done much today. We just went to the coin laundry place to do laundry before we get on the ferry tomorrow. We don't leave until 6pm pacific time, but I still feel like this is our last day here. I hope we get to see some whales on the ferry ride, I'd love to get some great pics of wildlife. Well, since I don't have too much to say I won't waste too much time. I won't be updating on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday unless we happen to have internet on the ferry (seriously doubt it). So here goes the second part of our journey.
