Alaska - Day 3 - Merry Christmas!

Now I know why Cookie wouldn't let me in the craft room, she was making me a blanket! Yea!

I have my own little Christmas tree under the big family tree.  Will Santa find me so far away from home?

I set out a plate of cookies for Santa and pulled my new blankie over me and tried to get some sleep but I'm so excited about Christmas morning!

Santa did come! And he brought me a puppy! A husky puppy. I feel VERY Alaskan now. What should I name him?

Here we are eating Christmas dinner.  Cookie and her family baked and cooked all day.  I think my new puppy is trying to take a bite while no one is looking at him!

Off to Oregon soon.

Alaska - Day 2 - More Snow!

Today we had a very busy day.  More snow fell so there was more shoveling to be done.  I helped this time.
 
I came in for a little while to warm up against Mr. Cookie's husky.  She's very warm!

 I wanna ride the snow machines!  Can I drive one all by myself? No, I'm too little.  I ride with Cookie's son.

 Then, when we were all done playing in the snow, we went out for Chinese buffet.  That's Mr. Cookie.  I want his sushi.
 
After dinner, we saw the movie Avatar.  Those people are blue.  Does that mean they're cold?

For dessert, we had Moose Tracks ice cream!  I have my spoon and I'm going to dive right in!

Alaska - Day 1 - Snow!

Hello from Alaska!  I arrived just as the snow started falling. Snow fell for three days!  I stayed inside most of the time because Cookie wanted me to get used to the snow and cold gradually, even with my sweater on!  But when she let me go outside...  I made a snow angel!

And I looked out over the frozen lake behind Cookie's house and felt the snow falling on my head.

When I cam back inside, I hung a snowflake on the Christmas tree.  That will help me remember playing in the snow!

For dinner, we ate baked macaroni and cheese, brussels sprouts and reindeer sausage.  I made Cookie PROMISE that was NOT one of Santa's reindeer.  She says it isn't.   I told her brown bears don't eat brussels sprouts, we only eat meat.  *Black* bears eat veggies.  But she says no, brown bears eat veggies sometimes.  So I ate them.
