Moving on Out…

Moving on Out…

Closing up our business in Alaska required a lot of hard work, to say the least.Ugh…I’m still tired, just thinking about it! We also did our best to find new homes for many of our products. For example, we tore down our front window display, and found a new home for our ornaments: Here is Jared and a neighboring biz employee walking our window display of ornaments to the store across the...

And while I’m at it…

Gee…I’m on a roll, tonight! So many posts…Maiya has turned into a total ham in front of the camera, lately. Here are some poses she came up with on her own! And this has to be one of my favorite shirts that Ella owns. In case you can’t read it, it says “Happy Camper.” Could it get any more fitting than that? But wait…I shouldn’t give you the impression that...
