Grammy and Grandpa Turek were able to join us for Christmas week and it drifted by in a blur. They arrived to below zero temperatures and left after a balmy high 30 degree day. If there were fears of visiting a bitter cold Alaska, they needn't have had them. As for the darkness, they were stuck with that.

  • Our trip to Alaska Zoo to enjoy the zoo lights exhibit was perfect. At 28 degrees, no wind, and just under 2 hours of walking around, It was the perfect time for everyone involved. Henry seemed to love the tiger the most, though it might have been because I was roaring while pointing.
  • Christmas Day at Randy and Kelly's was delicious as always. The wild card this year was the hilarious and invigorating Just Dance 4 on the wii. The game was worth every penny.
  • Becky and I made a very good Alaskan effort at a Wigilia. Along with some delicious Indiana fresh polish sausage and cheese pierogi, we cooked up some cream of mushroom soup and macadamia crusted halibut. We were only missing Oplatek.
  • Henry loved tearing around the Spenard Rec Center with Grammy and Grandpa in tow. Almost everyone needed a nap after all the fun.
  • All pictures here.
