Snowzilla Lives

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we took a trip to see Snowzilla. While Anchorage usually has a mid-January thaw this year's thaw was extra warm (including a high temperature of 50 one day) and we wanted to see how Snowzilla was doing. A lesser snowman would have melted, but all things considered other than his hat blowing off Snowzilla was looking as good as a snowman could look.

More Isaiah

Isaiah recently turned 1 month old. He is getting pretty big.

But Thomas still looks like a giant compared to his little brother.

Happy Birthday Alaska!!!

Alaska celebrated its 50th anniversary of statehood on January 3rd. We thought about watching the parade but as much as I love standing around in sub-zero weather, Adria didn't think is was a good idea to have Thomas and Isaiah out in the cold like that. Instead we attended some of the indoor events. Thomas liked watching some performers play with yo-yos. He also had a good time at the tribute to American Bandstand as well. Isaiah slept through the whole thing.

On the walk back to our car we stopped by some of the ice sculptures. I liked this one of a caribou.

Sleepy Guy

A New Toy

During the fall I decided to put the wood pallets that we had lying around to good use. I cut the pallets up and used the wood to make Thomas a small cart. I was on schedule to get it ready for Christmas day, but Isaiah showed up earlier than expected so Thomas got his new toy on New Years day instead. He didn't seem to mind about the delay.
