November Came and Went!

Ruby giving Moxy and a big hug after her Thanksgiving presentation.  

Ruby and Eddy laying on her bed in the living room, because everyone was sick that week.  We were all trying to be by the wood stove.  It felt like a slumber party.

 Eddy has wings in this picture.  He really is a little angel.

Pumpkin Carnival

Ruby dressed the little pumpkin we grew. She surprised me by hiding it in my bed.

I was actually scary I had a big red and black spider crawling on my back. I wrapped eddy to me and we managed to make it through another Halloween carnival.

Our Mac broke down

We had several nice little pictures to share as we have been having a nice festive halloween, however our computer is not cooperating. Luckily this iPad arrived, I am still not sure what to make of it.

Beets are Scary to Eat.

         In the spirit of Halloween I decided to allow beets to be delivered in our produce box.  Beets are fun because they give off a beautiful color.  A little on the bloody looking side.  I decided to make roasted beets with sauteed beet greens.  Yummy recipe to me....Greg only ate them with me to support my iron intake. 
Moxy with his Transformers mask on.  He has decided that this will be his outfit and mask for Halloween. Back to the beets. 

Red Rice

This is what the final recipe turned out like.  I thought it was beautiful.  I put walnuts on top for the protein, and threw it on top of brown rice.  The recipe can be found at:

Once you started eating the beets the juices turned everything in the meal a pinkish red color.  Perfect for Halloween.

The Cold is Here to Stay...Halloween time.

It's Halloween time, and we went to the community garden right before the first snow and saved our one little pumpkin. We were so excited. We grew it with the "wall of water". I don't think it would have made it otherwise with Bethel having such rainy cold weather.

Our first snow. We woke up this morning to little snow flakes. I told Eddy he better get ready for the cold.

Oregon Grandparents Come For a Visit

Moxy and Papa's seat for the entire trip. Moxy would kick us out of his seat if we sat in it.

My mom brought my aunt Lois with her to Alaska in the form of a doll. Ruby colored a picture of "Lois" and has to sleep with her every night.
Eddy and grandma. I could tell that Eddy missed being in grandma's arms after they left.

Grandma and Papa are Red Sox fans so we went to the local pizza shop to watch it on the big screen. We don't talk about the outcome of the game. Greg and Papa made smoked salmon. It was delicious. Yes I tried some on a cracker.

We tried to pick cranberries on the Tundra but the wind was trying to blow us away.
Grandma went to Ruby's school to eat with her a lot. If she did not show up for lunch, Ruby would ask her why she did not come.

Andrew and Kristy...Bethel Outbound Plane

Andrew and Greg (above).
with Leah.

Most of us were crying before these pictures, but we ended up looking pretty happy. Andrew came up in June, three years ago. I knew he would like it here. It felt natural to have him here, our missing family member. I had a feeling that he would meet Kristy. They made life very fun here. I am so happy that he is leaving with her, because this means I will get to see her for a long time to come.

One last hug for Ruby.
Kristy and Andrew going through security. We just kept following them and saying goodbye.
Bye, Bye Andrew and Kristy.
