As the snow makes it way down the mountains (not in our yards, yet), we are thankful for friendship. We've been in Eagle River now for a year and are developing friendships with our neighbors, church friends and through school. I especially enjoy seeing my children develop friendships. While Sister still asks about her friends from Cordova (When can I see Briggy-Boo or Ms. Ammella again?) or when we can move back to our red house - I love seeing her enjoying her new friends.
We were invited to a birthday party for one of Sister's friends from daycare.
We had a lot of fun playing at the Alaska Fitness Center - what a great idea to rent out the play room for the party.
We also had fun watching our friend open up his presence. Brother figured if he couldn't open them, he was going to go play instead.
We really had a great time and it feels good to have "local" friendships in our lives.
Brother was all party out when we got home - just wanted to lay on the floor in the blanket. He never fell asleep, but for him to lay that still for so long - we knew he was tired!
We also enjoyed our weekend by getting outside for a beautiful fall/winter afternoon walk. The kids shook the fireweed and it looked like it was snowing in the air. This picture doesn't do how magical it looked on our walk - so much fun to be had with the simple things in life.
Between the party and fresh air, the kids were ready for a much needed nap on Sunday - I just love how they showed us they were ready for quiet time...
This weekend is kicking off with the theme of friendships as well. From dinner with friends from Cordova to dinner with new 'local' friends. We hope you make time this weekend to spend time in your friendships - both near and distant!
We love and miss you all!!
