Party Tonight!

Everyone is talking about the winds we had last night, nothing happened to us, but AG's car door was trashed, my next-door-neighbor's deck fell apart and his bbq was almost in the river! Up the hill Gil and Kristi's shed blew apart and the APL crane fell over too! CRAZY! I hear 120mph gusts were recorded!
A lot of the town are going to the Fireman's Ball tonight and some are working (Sorry Jr!) and happy birthday Juno!
We're having a going away party for one of the guys on the boat tonight. I'm on a kick --I made 2 kinds of nut/dried fruit clusters and 4 kinds of flavored party nuts. I noticed that I have a TON of nuts in my freezer. T is planning this party with the other guys, so they're going to make BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs?? Random for December! It's calm now, but is supposed to blow up to 65 tonight! Should be fun to watch :)

for art class....ignore my eBay piles...they'll HOPEFULLY be listed next week and eventually GONE!!
(that is my dream and my husband's too!)

Jr is an Eagle Scout! He started in scouts in 1st grade, had everything EXCEPT the project done before he was 13. Went to the Jamboree when he was 13, watched 4 leaders get electrocuted, came home, our scoutmaster (Manny) died (He was elderly) He wasn't into it anymore, but he did a great project --helping with the restoration project the Russian Orthodox Church is doing for the Bishop's House, which is right next door to the church. We're so proud and thankful that he's finally done!

Bella grew!!!!!
Manderzz in the fabulous Cold Bay airport..there is a pic of's not good!! It was a long, crowded flight after 4+ hours in the ANC airport, we were tired!

We made it home after a very long bumpy flight, I still don't feel very well, the bumpy flight didn't help I've felt sort of "off" since Friday! ughhh no time for this!
We stopped in Cold Bay...then had to circle here until there was an opening, but we made it. Today, unpacking. and cleaning of course. I did order Christmas gifts because I'm just weird like that! I'd rather order than stand in line in a store.

Anchorage, STILL!

We're at the airport, we've been here for awhile, tried to sneak on the 9:35am departure, but no room. Our flight just landed...we should be on the way home in a few minutes! I hear the wind is "brisk" and the visibilty is decent. And all 9 of our bags made it safely...whewwwww. That is good.
We had a nice dinner with our friends, even played a game, a different kind of game than we've ever played. It's to facilitate communication. The Ungame. It was good. We need to buy it.

We borrowed clothing for sleeping and washed our outfits :)

I better get my pics on before it's time to board...will probably be busy for a week once I get home, it seems to be that way after a trip...and I have holiday STUFF to accomplice too.
