Nothing new under the sun

So this week is off to a pretty slow start. It's been pouring snow here all day. It's finally let up a bit. We've just been staying in the last couple of days having hot chocolate and making crafts. This morning Miles and I painted on this huge piece of paper, I really like painting, maybe I'll tackle that one of these days. Corey and I have started this new study in sunday school called becoming a good samaritan. It's right up my alley and I am really enjoying it. This past Sunday our lesson was about seeking social justice and reconciliation. There is a really neat part of the study in which you tackle on your own at home, this week I've really been fascinated by the following site: betterworldshopper.com. One of the challenges for this particular session was to shop responsibly. This website provides the latest information on more than 100 of the largest U.S. companies with the most popular brands across twenty-five industries. You can use the information on this website to help know which companies to avoid and which ones are moving toward economic, social, and environmental responsibility. This is becoming such a passion of mine, I really feel the need to be a good steward of what God has given me while here on this earth. Anyways, now on to what everyone really wants....pictures!

What cutie pies!! I can't believe how much Salem has grown. It sounds like you guys are enjoying your time in Alaska. Glad you all have settled in so well. I just can't quite imagine the weather. I have had all the snow I can stand for one winter here. Take care. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Love & blessings, Melinda

Thanks for finally updating your blog! I loved seeing all the cute pictures. I am glad you are having fun doing crafts and staying busy indoors. I will check out that site, I feel the same way, we need to take care of what God's given us! Wish i could buy everything from famers, and not shop at Walmart :)
love you guys, Dori
