Back in AK

So we've been back in AK for almost two weeks now. I haven't taken one picture with my Nikon... :( It's been a little hard getting used to not having my family around and dealing with not being able to go outside due to the extreme cold. Tanner went from almost walking, in MT, to mostly crawling here in AK, unless we are at friends' houses. He has had a hard time staying up until 7pm AK time, he want's to go to bed at 6pm, which is 8pm in MT.
We have managed to keep relatively busy since our return. Brandon is on swing shift so he is home with us until 2:45pm and gets home well after Tanner and I've gone to bed. It's great having him home with us, I'm not sure how long he'll be on swings, they usually do 6 month shift rotations, but who really knows when shift change will happen again. Tanner and I have gone over to my friend Susan's for a play date as well as to my friend Liz's for a play date. Our nephew, Lucas, had his 5th birthday party over the weekend. I was there when he was born. It's so crazy how quickly time passes.
Brandon has been sprucing up the house a bit by installing new window shades, painting the bathroom and putting new lighting in the bathroom. He's preparing for Tanner's 1st birthday party. We're also moving out a lot of big furniture pieces (treadmill, elliptical, storage bins) to the garage to make room for Tanner and the big playing we are anticipating him to partake in as he gets older! He is already a little wild man!
The temperatures over the last few days have been dipping down to -40's for a high! Today we had 3 hours, 48 minutes of daylight... Our water froze for a few hours until Brandon got us thawed out... :(
That's what we've been up to since our return to Alaska.
