Snowstorms and Christmas Spirit
It has been a little while since I have written in my blog. But, we are alive and well up here! We are surviving our first bought with Alaskan snowstorms. I am sure by standards up here, it has been a teeny, tiny storm. But, to those of us who are unused to the snow, it has been a bit of an adjustment. We have also been hearing rumors that we are now in avalanche country. So, I think our snow fights could get more intense as the season continues. For now, Cody and I are enjoying the change :)

We have also been getting into the Christmas spirit. This is pretty easy to do with a foot of snow on the ground! It has been nonstop Christmas music, baking, and decorating at Casa de Thompson-Middleton. We went for a small tree this year but it is still awfully cute (and real, my favorite!).

Finally, we have been busy moving! As I posted before, we found a house with ocean-front property! Granted, we share this property with the other three people living in our complex. But, still it is a peaceful little place. We can literally walk out to the water. Specks is loving being next to the woods as well. It has been wonderful so far!
