Cousin Jacobsen's Rule Father's Day!

Last week, Leif and Leinna headed to Fairbanks to visit Grandma and Grandpa Jacobsen and Uncle and Aunt Jacobsen and cousins. I sure did miss them, but was able to join them for the weekend. It was a beautiful evening as I left Cordova and was able to snap a photo of the flats from the air.

Leinna thought the sun in Fairbanks, was way too bright!

Just love that the Jacobsen girls have matching hairdos! Too cute!!

The Jacobsen grand-kiddos!
So much fun to see the family. Wish we could have stayed longer.

A little of this... a little of that

Now that my life is a little less crazy, I have some time to update the blog. My 5 week college class wraps up tomorrow- YAHOO! I finished my last assignment tonight- again YAHOO!! Also, today/tonight is the first 24 hours of not being with Leinna :o( Leif's brother and his family from South Dakota are in Fairbanks visiting Leif's parents. Since I started a new job this summer and can not miss training - Leif and Leinna decided to head up today. I will join them for a quick trip this weekend. It sure is quiet around the house- so thankful for a dinner invitation from Mr. and Mrs. Dillydally- YUMMY!! Even though, I'm beyond tired, it's just too quiet to go to bed. So a little of this and a little of that of Leinna!

Since I've been spending many hours on the computer working on college assignments, Leinna's decided to "work-out" while I'm typing away. Ha,ha... actually she loves the art of climbing on up onto things these days and the treadmill is just the right height for her to have a successful climb! Although she did climb stairs rather quickly the other night-- time to figure out a way to block the bottom step- otherwise, Leif and I are going to get our workout chasing her :o)

No Leinna didn't celebrate her birthday early- it was Momma's birthday! Leinna had way too much fun playing with the ribbons.

Here is a picture of me 1 year ago and below is a picture of us now! I know I've said it before and I will probably say it again and again... "I'm just amazed at how fast the time has gone by!"

Finally- my little treasures are blooming. I discovered these beautiful chocolate lilies last spring in the woods near my house. I was so excited to see them sprout up this spring that I couldn't wait to see them bloom! Finally blooming and enjoying every minute of them :o)

11 Months Old Today!

How did we spend Leinna's 11 month 'birthday'... it was our first full day away from her :O( Leif and I have an opportunity to attend a technology class/in-service that goes all day. We are blessed to have wonderful babysitters in town and Leinna enjoyed her day with a former CHS graduate. I would write more, but I must finish my college homework and my 'homework' from the in-service today. Let the count down begin to Leinna's 1st Birthday!!
