All in one day! This past Saturday Steve came home from work to tell me he passed his check-ride, which means he's moving on to the next (and last) level of training in his job until he becomes a certified air traffic controller. This was a big deal and we are very proud of him, and glad it's done! Then, our church friend and neighbor Tiffany called to tell me there was a moose hanging out in the neighborhood. So Steve drove down the street and took pictures/videos of this huuuuuge moose (and notice that we can't even see its full legs because it's covered by a foot of snow). Those things are so huge! Guess I'll never be letting Alec play by himself in the neighborhood :) So then we went to "The Turtle Club" restaurant to celebrate (Steve's advancement, not the moose) and had shrimp, prime rib, and fried halibut....yummm! To top of the day we got another call from Tiffany close to midnight and she told us that the Northern Lights were out. So we hopped in the car and drove around for 1 hour to see the lights, or the "Aurora". It's so amazing to see the bright green color it produces. We did not get a good picture of it with our camera, but one of Steve's co-workers took the following pictures. And yes, we can see them that bright by driving 5-10 minutes away from my house. So cool!! Anyways, we had a good Saturday! Today Alec was extremely grumpy from the lack of sleep from the previous night (blame it on the Aurora), and then during dinner he fell off his chair and bumped his chin on the table = cut his tongue and bled a ton. Ohhhhh, the joys of a 2-yr old! I hope it heals soon cause it hurts him every time he eats something. Maybe I'll get a picture of his tongue tomorrow?!
