Happy Birthday Alan

Alan and Daddy.
Here is what Alan looked like before we left, and here is what he looks like now. He had his very first birthday party today and it really sucked that we were not there. I was thinking about him all afternoon. His actual birthday was Thursday and I feel really bad that I missed blogging it on that day. I for some reason was under the impression that his birthday party was on the day of his birthday, thinking today was the 4th! Bad Aunt award to me! I can't wait to see pictures of him with the toy I bought him! I just hope he gets 1/2 as much use out of it as the one that BJ and Kelly bought Joey for his birthday!

Hey Tina!

Alan has had a great deal of fun with that noisy (I mean lovely) toy. Did you know it doesnt even have an off switch? or was that why you bought it? Anyway it was a blast and Pics will be uploaded soon. Thanks again!

Cute photos. :)

I just wanted to say thanks for your comment on our blog. Everyone has been so supportive, and that's the thing that's ticking off the person who's commenting. I understand where she's coming from, but she's being pretty childish about it. I'll tell you about it someday, I'm just not in the mood right now (nothing is gonna wreck my Turkey Day, haha).

I will be flying to Yellowknife on November 23rd and staying until the 28th. Jeff will either be coming the same day as me or on the 25th or 26th. We should definitely hook up since we weren't able to in May! I am REALLY looking forward to seeing Yellowknife!! I always tell Jeff how jealous I am of you guys, because you still have trees and you can drive to Yellowknife whenever you want. When we're done with Nunavut, I'd really like to move somewhere just north of Yellowknife. I haven't even been there, but I think I would like it a lot. Trees, lakes, the north, the northern lights...what could be better?

Woo hoo!! That is really cool. We'll have to make plans a little closer to the time you come. Maybe I'll get Colby and Joey's "northern grandparents" to look after them that Saturday or Sunday night, depending on when Jeff gets in and we can come in and hook up! Or, depending on when Jeff gets in and what he has on the go, you could come out and spend the weekend in Rae with us, come out Saturday and we'll bring you back Sunday. We'll figure something out! :)

I just came up with a ridiculous Post Card idea! Get all of us northern bloggers to take a photo of our local Norther store and then make a tiled postcard of all the Northern stores in the North. Talk about Northern Promotion!

I'd love to see Rae! Especially since that's my middle name, haha.

I will definitely be in contact with you when the end of November gets closer (woo hoo I'm so excited). :)
