We're HOME!


It is with great joy to tell you that WE ARE HOME and the arctic never looked better! It was such a blessing to be greeted at the air port by Miss Laurie. She came to pick us up and she was one of the very first people that I saw when we stepped into the air port. My husband was such a trooper... while Ellie, Laurie, and I sat in the warm van catching up on everything Andrew lugged all six 50 pound totes and our many carry-ons through the coldness and loaded them into the van. Over the last two days he also hauled and packed all our groceries. Believe me this was not a small task. We managed to have a truck full of groceries and miscellaneous items almost twice over. I know you might be thinking why so much. Well, when the cost of a gallon milk is $8 and a loaf of bread is $5 it is much more cost effective to buy our groceries in Anchorage and then air freight them up.

After being gone so long it's been fun rediscovering our home. Ellie giggled and smiled with such contentment to play with her old toys and be in her own room. When we left Barrow she had just started cruising and was cutting her first teeth. Now she can walk on her own and she has four pearly whites adorning her smile. OH WHAT A BLESSING TO BE HOME!

I have a couple more scrapbook outings to share but for now I need to unpack and go through our mail. I can't wait to get my hands on all the new catty's!!!! Laurie gave me the new Stampin' Up! catty last night. My new TAC (The Angel Company) catties should be at the post office. Andrew has already shoveled out our car and is heading to the post office as I write this posting. I am happy that after six weeks of no use that car started up and is running. Six weeks of being parked in the cold temperatures can lead to a frozen engine. Thankfully Darryl (Laurie's husband) plugged it in once the temps dropped. I saw Andrew drive out this morning and it looks like our rear tires may have went square. Anyhow, I gotta get to making breakfast before he gets back. I want to surprise him with a warm delicious meal.

Smiles,
Nancy

Glad to have you back, sister. Now it's about getting back into the grove that's going to be "work", huh?! I'm happy that you had a great time with your family and did you have to freeze all of your groceries before shipping them?

hugs,
Jen
