Alaska Photos … Scenic Sunday
I know it’s been since July that I’ve put up a Scenic Sunday and no, I didn’t disappear completely. I’ve just been…well…lazy. My camera went in for repairs. I broke my booty and ended up bed ridden for six weeks. And then, by golly, it took a LONG time to move normally again. I don’t have much to show for my absence other than a slight limp and utter disorganization, but today I found my desk under a heap of crapola and broke out the laptop. It feels good.
So, here’s what’s happened since I’ve been gone: Mostly, we look like a zoo.
My oldest baby, Heather, announced her engagement to Andrew and we are SUPER EXCITED about this! July 2015 in Tillamook, Oregon. 🙂 Also she is so beautiful.
Did I mention how beautiful my Heather is? (she obviously looks like me…)
Destini (right) and her BFF Andrea left Alaska and toured the west coast for a while before settling in Portland. They are having a blast.
And now Destini is off to see the great big world!
I’m so glad my oldest girls are near each other even if I can’t see them all the time. 😉
And now for the farm life…
Bagel and Mya are such good friends.
This friendly girl came to live…and brought her pregnant belly.
And this guy, her boy from a previous relationship…
Cocoa, the creeper in the back, looks suspicious.
We brought Rio, our companion horse, home to live. She needs some special kinda loving.
Bagel swears she didn’t eat the tether ball…
In case you ever wondered what our kitchen looks like…it’s clean here. So…snapped a pic.
I have a bit of a thing for old cast iron…
We got some old, new to us, furniture. It’s super comfy and nobody has to sit on the floor.
We finally got some snow.
Rio said goodbye to her buddies.
One big happy family.

We gave the goats a playground…
And some of them liked it.
But some of them don’t know they are goats…
She’s so FLUFFY!
We filled the woodshed.
We built a lean-to for the goats and Boots helped. OH, and Anthony’s hair got curly. Remember when it all fell out? Now it’s turned curly….hmmmm
We got some new POWER for our cabin!
Starting to look a lot like winter.
Oh yes, and we homeschooled….and Steven made a story that actually made sense and nobody died. That’s important in a story.
The boys and I began to take apart Destini’s old coffee shop, Hooked, that was damaged in an ice flood. We are turning it into a Tiny House guest cabin so you all can visit!!
And we schooled some more. We are SO happy with our schedule this year. Everyone is learning tons.
Beezie somehow got even cuter…
Robins volleyball season came…and went…
Robin is super bouncy.
Mya found a connection and love…
I surprised the husband with a new toy to renovate. He was shaking with excitement. He’s weird like that.
