How Beautiful is McDonalds...

These two beautiful trees are what greeted Ryan and I in the McDonald's drive through. I felt funny wanting to take a picture, but then I thought, why not! It has snowed up here between 1 1/2 and 2 feet, and it has been beautiful!

My favorite thing about driving around in the winter is seeing all the beautiful Ravens that scavage the city. They add such character to Alaska, I can't help but laugh at them. This tree with the ravens in it was especially funny to me because through all the black and white there was an orange/red spot. Look closely and you could see a McDonald's to-go back they had brought up there. (probably won't see it in this picture) Bad Ravens!

For Christmas, which we gave Adelle early because she really needed it, we got her A little push/activity cart. She LOVES it! She has learned how to pull herself up on it, which is really funny because she can't even crawl yet. But she's quite good at standing! She stands up and plays with the blocks and the weight. (which is there to keep the cart from tumbling on her). Then today I noticed she is now moving around the cart. Very exciting considering she's still not crawling.

She's getting a lot more brave at exploring her surroundings, and has also tried a few times to pick up stuff she's dropped on the ground.

She has also started clapping, which I don't have a picture of yet but I will. So keep in touch.
