Alaska at -50 below

After we got back from Utah for Christmas (I know I know, posts coming soon!!) we went to Alaska so that Dominic could spend some time with his Dad and Step-mom. We were there for 8 days and IT WAS FREEZING to say it nicely, because technically it was more than 70 degrees colder than freezing temperature..

It warmed up to -38 degrees F the day we left. We almost got out our swimsuits for this picture but they were already packed up! Darn right?!
My dad made this beaver hat. It is amazing. As soon as you put it on your head is instantly warm. Its sheered beaver on the inside and that fur is the softest stuff in the world. Its too bad that like 60 beavers would have to die to make a blanket big enough for my liking.................
This is at my Grandma Williams' home. I love this little rocking chair. Her home is so nastalgic to me. Everything is the same from when I was little. The dangling glass wind chime of doves, the flying goose, the netted plant holders, the smell, the area rug, the chairs, the blue countertop, small green class cups. I love it.
This is the front window at my parents house. INSIDE. That is ice on the window. It really was that cold! Penny would touch it and sign and/or say cold. She found it fascinating.

Did I mention Penny likes corn? Notice on the fridge it says "Life is good and cold." After I took this picture I asked Penny what was on her shirt to which she said "Flower" and then she pointed to my shirt and said "Star"....... she was trying to make conversation. I love her. She ate two cobs of corn.

Great generation shots!! Very cool. I forget to do things like that when I see them. You're a good gurler.

It was SOOOO cold there! I'm glad (maybe glad isn't the word) I got to go to Barrow where it was warmer! :o)
