Holiday Fun

Our family has been enjoying playing on our VERY steep and long driveway every day during our short 4 1/2 hours of daylight. I have been walking the hill to get some exercise and enjoying the snow covered trees, & stumps. Today we experienced typical Fairbanks winter temperatures of 32 below, so we bundled up with an extra layer to keep warm. Yep, that's right we still got outside...you know Alaskans are just tough...at least that's what I like to tell myself. Ben ended up coming in with some very red, cold hands, but was able to warm up by the wood stove quickly. David stayed out the longest chopping a tree down and dragging it up to the house with the snowmachine. Here are some pictures from our adventures:
