December 2010
This was our third Christmas together and our second one here in Anchorage, Alaska. This year was pretty special for us because baby Jesse would be arriving in a few short months. This Christmas was also unique in that I not only made Christmas cards but actually mailed them out... seriously a first!

Chilly Days LO

Here in Anchorage, Alaska there is no mistaking the fact that it is winter.  We have already gotten more than 3 feet of snow and have had temperatures as low as -20 (which is NOT a regular event in this area of Alaska)!!  We joke that this is one of the few places that you can go outside in 10-15 degree weather an comment on how warm it feels that day!!  In spite of these chilly days, I know that I am not alone in being in awe of the beauty of this time of year.  Everything is blanketed in pristine white mounds of snow and the sky appears to be extra blue and everything shimmers as if it's been doused with heavy sprinklings of glitter!  As much as I dreaded the end of summer here in Anchorage, once the snow finally arrived and couldn't help but be excited over the amazing changes in the landscape.  This is truly a wondrous place to live!


The picture in this LO was taken from my sliding glass door.  Our neighbors love birds and have several bird feeders around their yard.  I get to look out of this window and see Blue Jays, pigeons (lol), squirrels, and other random birds go in and out of this bird feeder...so neat and exciting to see nature so alive even in such cold!

I enjoyed cooking when I was a teenager, however, once my dad "required" that I cook, I immediately refused!  I was learning so much from my grandmother at the time, but you know how it is...as soon as some one tells you that you have to do something, your first response is to do the opposite.  

Well, I am now older, wiser, a wife, and a mommy, oh and HUNGRY!!  I've become more "domesticated" now that I'm a stay at home wife and I'm loving it.  I actually enjoy cooking once again and I love trying new recipes - especially goodies!!  

So anyways, for my husband's birthday I wanted to make him a homemade cake (not one from a box).  I ended up making a mocha cake with homemade espresso buttercream frosting.  It was kind of a pain because I don't have a standing mixer, so I had hold the egg beater for the longest time, but it was SO worth it!  It ended up being the best cake and frosting I've ever had and I'm totally making it again...now to convince my husband to let me get the KitchenAid standing mixer that I've been dreaming about...

Road Trip LO

In 2009, my husband and I decided to move from Southern California to Anchorage, Alaska.  We also decided to drive and pack all of our worldly possessions into our vehicles!!  It was a crazy road trip and we did it in less than a week!  By the time we made it to Anchorage, we were so stressed out and exhausted!  We needed a few days to recover from our move!  Well, as I said that was in '09 and I've yet to scrap anything from that adventure!!  Thankfully, I was able to use Monica's new kit "Road Trip" to scrap some about this crazy week from 2009.
