Humming - genetic?

I think humming may be genetic, and if it is, it skips a generation.  Joss has been humming lately, anything she does from coloring to playing on the computer - she is humming. 
It totally reminds me of Mom!

hospital website

just in case you wanted, this is a link to the hospital website where Jett was born.  They took some pictures there and have them posted on this site.  I think its crazy that he is only 8 days old, and already he looks lots different than he does in these photos... CRAZY...

Feeding Humpback Whales

This was Mondays FHE activity.  Ryan called us from Clover Pass telling us what was going on so Mishel and I headed over right after work, hopped on a boat with Ryan and grabbed some pictures and witnessed some unreal whale feeding.  Ryan videoed the event as well, wich provides a better representaion of what took place, but nothing can replicate the sound and site of being there in person

October 3 Deer Hunt

Last weekend Mishel, Max, and I made a trip over to Prince of Wales Island (POW) for some deer hunting.  Mishel had Friday off and the weather looked good so we turned our weekend into a little adventure.  We hiked to the top of mountains into the alpine (above tree line) both Friday and Saturday and were able to get ourselves a little deer.  The plan was for Mishel to shoot a deer, but by Saturday evening after lots of hiking with not much luck, we built a fire to warm her fingers.  While she was warming up I had to check the top of one more ridge...just in case there was something on the other side.  There was.  Here are pictures from our trip.

Here is Mishel and Max posing with ouir winter food. 

This is our little finger warming fire

Here is a picture in the sub-alpine, about 3/4 the way up the mountain

The nice thing about hiking around in AK is that there is always water available.  This is a little rain run-off stream in the alpine.
