New Years Eve and Turducken

It has been a while since our last post! We have had such a busy start to the New Year! We had a great New Years Eve with some our our close friends at their new house out in Eagle River, Alaska. It is a smaller town right outside of Anchorage. It is nestled right in the mountains and is such a cute little town. We played some Catchphrase, which the girls team dominated in (even in the sports category, which the boys were confident they would be able to beat us in). Then we all went out to the Homestead, which is a very Alaskan-style bar next to the bowling alley in Eagle River. There was a huge dance floor and Steven showed off his great dance moves! The boys had a great time playing ping-pong as well!

The boys also had fun trying to climb to the very top of this huge snow mound. The plow always pushes the snow into the middle of the cul-de-sac and some one made a slide down on side! Super fun! There is Steven on the top of the mountain of snow!!!

After New Years, we came home and watched some football on TV (the Rose Bowl, sad that Oregon couldn't fight to a win). Then, we went over to another friends house for some Turducken. Turducken is a chicken inside a duck inside of a turkey. You can buy them already stuffed at the store and all you have to do is pop it in the oven and cook it. YUM!
I really liked the turkey and the chicken, but the duck had a different sort of taste and I was not a fan of it!

In other news, please stay tuned for pictures of our trip to Alyeska to go skiing...it was much more steep than Hilltop...and it was very icy, no powder at all!!! Here is a picture of me, sitting on the snow...where I spent much time that day!!
