Buddy is the best little dog I know!

So it is OFFICALLY the Christmas season.  Of course we have had our decorations up since before Thanksgiving.  Too bad it's been too cold for us to go to any of the tree lighting ceremonies.  Poor Grayson just can't get out in weather below zero.  That's right.  It's been BELOW zero for over a week, with only one day above zero.  This Saturday we get to go eat breakfast with Santa.  We are so EXCITED!!  We tried to go see Santa this past Sunday but there was so many people there we couldn't wait in line that long.  The wait was over an hour. 

We had an ugly Christmas Sweater party we went to last Friday night,  The sweaters people found were hilarious!  We all voted on the King and Queen of the ugly sweaters and wouldn't you know Gabe Won!!  He looked so funny!  His prize was spam and a king size Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!  He ate the spam that night and the peanut butter cup when we got home.  He tried to share the spam but not too many people wanted any!

Since its been so cold I have been looking through our pictures we have taken up here and I have decided Alaska is a Beautiful place.  so for the next few days i am going to post pictures of the landscape.  Hope you all enjoy.

Look at that sky!
