Kailee's 11th Birthday

Birthday balloons, presents from family and friends back home, a delicious favorite dinner of chicken soup and a chocolate/peanut butter cake, and family to share it with...what a birthday celebration!

Christmas in Lada...

...complete with all the trimmings!
In such contrast to our last Christmas at our island home surrounded by people that do not celebrate Christ's birth.  We enjoyed the sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday...small white lights on the tree, stockings hung by the tree, candles burning, Christmas music playing, and yummy treats to taste! 

Dennis and Jeanie stopped by for a couple days on their way back to the island.  So fun to play games, enjoy meals together, and make divinity.

 Our care team back home in Alaska and Steve's parents blessed us with a Christmas box!  Special treats from home make being so far away from family and friends for the holidays much more bearable. 

Hmm, wonder where we will be for Christmas next year?
