Hazel's 1st Birthday

Yesterday was Hazel's 1st Birthday!  I can not believe that it has been a year since we met our sweet little girl.  Time does fly by!  We celebrated with a party and had a fun time with 6 kids running, crawling and rolling around!
Yep, she's 1!

She had lots of help opening her presents.

Yeah for One!

Little Birds

Our neighbor hand feeds the nuthatches in the neighborhood.  They swoop down and flap in front of her face when they want food.  As a result we are "bombed" by these birds occasionally when she is not out to feed them.  At first it was a little frightening but now we feed them whenever they are out and we all really enjoy being able to have a bird land on our hands for a treat.

Our First Christmas Tree

We went to Fort Richardson and cut our own Christmas tree.  Hazel was fast asleep in the truck for the cutting but is really enjoying the finished product!

Saturday Ski

It was a gorgeous day for a ski so we loaded the babe and skied down the street to the Chester Creek trail for some 2 degree fun!

Hazel's Room Phase One

 Hazel's room was very cold and we found some mold forming in a couple spots so we decided to gut it and re-insulate.  We have never done any of this before and so we are learning as we go.  Wish us luck and we will keep you posted on the progress!
Almost forgot to take some "before" pics

More last minute "before" pics

Demo Daddy

This could be one of the reasons why Hazel's room was so cold, a hole to outside that MANY bugs had made their home.
