I had forgotten to upload one last family's photos. This was such a great family to photograph! We really took advantage of the beautiful fall and got these photos in this family's backyard!!! Beautiful, aren't they?!

I am working on a new set of photos and should be up and running pretty soon! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, sharing time with your very favorite people and realizing just how thankful you are for them!
Enjoying the heatwave (29 degrees) in the Tundra,

Welcome to the Tundra

Here's my little pengiun trying to stay warm in the Tundra,


P.S. Last report 10 degrees and snow flyin'!

Baby, it's cold outside....

Winter has arrived! In full force! No warning baby! I think it's making up for lost time. Two weeks ago, it was 70, now, I'm so excited that it's all the way up to 4 above that it scares me! Reminds me of the day I saw this in Jamestown, ND and made Sam stop on the side of the Interstate to get a picture:

Yep, you read that right, -196 degrees. Well, it may not have been quite that cold, but pretty darn close! :) Hence, the Frozen Tundra. (Acutally, I started calling this place the Tundra long before I saw that sign!) I mean, seriously, have you ever been here in the winter? I think you should come. Just to say you've done it! How else can you wear those super cute hats, scarves, gloves, coats, long johns, wool socks, sweaters, long sleeves, etc. ALL DAY LONG - looking super cute and stylish?!

But seriously. I will post some pictures later. The trees are so beautiful. You can't beat it when the frost freezes to the trees. This place turns into a magical winter wonderland! We are braving the frigid temps to head out for some family pictures today. I hope it goes well. I think it should be fun! Stay tuned for some sneak peaks!

Well, I don't have much going on these days, well, actually I have a lot going on, that's why I can't keep up with things. I hate to even count how many loads of laundry I finally got around to folding yesterday, but pretty much my life has become dull. I have no more funny stories.

Next up, pies for Thanksgiving....

O happy day in the Tundra,


PS. There are A LOT of giveaways and great deals on the Silhouette Machine out there. Just sayin'.

Chicken Little

Here is our little Halloween Chicken! I would have liked to have gotten some better pictures of Gabe with his dad, the farmer! But it got dark before we got our act together!
Getting caught up with life in the Tundra,

You wouldn't believe it if I told you.

I think I just peed my pants in the Tundra,

The time has come...

I'm turning over a new leaf! Sam told me not to enter too many giveaways as I was rushing out the door this morning on my way to work. And I've got to be honest with you. I think giveaways were always my outlet of ultimate optimism. But I've been jaded. I entered a giveaway - there were 10 entries and 4 chances to win, seriously, those are pretty darn good odds.

Guess what? I didn't win.

Therefore, there goes my optimism - out the window, along with the Fall Season - Hello winter. Hello jaded view of giveaways. I'm sorry, you may taunt me with your shiny new products, your steamy warm latte's, your ideas and inspiration, but alas I will not surrender again.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. Maybe I should do a giveaway on my own blog. When receiving doesn't work, maybe I should start giving! :)

Looking for something to give away in the Tundra,

Gabe at 12 months...

Here is the little man's 12 month picture....

Trying to get things caught up around here. I know I promised a recipe for Bread Pudding, let me go ahead and post that too. First, let me see if I have any pictures of it - although it doesn't do it justice. I don't even like Bread Pudding, but this....

Like I said, this picture does not do justice, just trust me on this one!

Mix: 2 eggs and 1 cup sugar

Then add: 5 crumbled biscuits

2 and 1/2 cups whole milk

cinnamon to taste

Pour into greased 9X12 pan. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.

Bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees.

*optional: may add coconut, craisins, raisins, nuts

It's the best bread pudding out there!

Well, I'm canning some apple butter and making the most of the Fall in the Tundra,

More giveaways....

Sam just laughs at me, actually, it's not really that funny. He just shakes his head and ignores the pity that bubbles up inside for me.... I can't help it. I even sign up for giveaways I don't even care about. How pitiful is that? I think I have a problem.

Hello. My name is Sarah. I'm a giveaway joining addict.

But seriously, it's Silhouette Stuff. Ok, I don't even HAVE a silhouette, but still, what's a girl to do? ;)
