Our Violinist

Makayla played violin at the mall here in Juneau on Saturday. These kids are all in 2nd grade and did an amazing job! The video is kind of shaky since it's from my phone but M is the one in the middle in the back row.

This year we were in Washington for Halloween. The kids were in heaven visiting their cousins and I got some quality time with my family. Makayla won for the most candy but Dallen and Naomi weren't far behind! Dallen caught on very quickly and wouldn't let go of his candy bucket despite the fact that it weighed more than him.

Makayla was so excited to be a zebra!

 Cutest little mummy Naomi!

This is my favorite picture we got of Dallen as Clark Kent / Superman! 

 Happy Halloween!

Etsy Shop Giveaway

 I have been M.I.A. for way too long! We are still getting our lives together here in Juneau but I wanted to celebrate today with a little giveaway from my Etsy shop. Nothing Panda hit 100 sales today!! 
  When I started my little print shop earlier this year, I just wanted a creative outlet. Did I hope other people would like my prints? Of course! But I never realized how much I would enjoy designing prints or how much I would love when others found the perfect print for their home. 

To celebrate I am doing a giveaway for any 8x10 print or print set in my shop to two lucky winners! To enter please visit my shop here
then leave a comment telling me which print you would choose if you won. For a second entry, share this giveaway ( twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc ) then come back and leave a comment letting me know where you shared. Winners will be chosen at random on Friday October 10th.

Thank you!!

It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To

Just kidding, I won't cry. Especially because Jess is taking me to Juneau for my birthday....
And not just for vacation...
And now I need to continue packing!

In July my mom and sister made the long haul to visit us (airplane, ferry, ferry). And I'm so glad they did! On the 2nd day they were here we drove three hours to the northernmost point of the island to visit El Capitan cave. Jess stayed home with Dallen and Naomi. After about thirty minutes into our drive we saw a huge black bear run across the road in front of us. It was spectacular! And sadly we didn't get any pictures of him. We did get pictures of plenty of these guys though!

Cookie Monster

Here in Alaska we pay for internet by the data. We only have a certain allowance per month so we're pretty careful, especially when it comes to streaming videos. Unfortunately for us, our girls absolutely love this video
I've finally downloaded it so they can watch it whenever they want! I will admit it is pretty fantastic...
