Dec VS Aug on the Homer Spit

Ok last Friday I was driving out to the Spit to grab some last minute Christmas goods. It was a normal December Day COLD,WINDY and Clear and while freezing balls I got to thinking wow what a difference 4 months can make!


We make a annual camping trip to the Spit and play "puker/tourist" for 3 to 4 days. This is our camping spot. It has MANY great quality's its across the street from the fishing hole,next door to lacier Drive Inn ,there are THREE bathrooms near by, and its but a 1/2 mile or less walk to the Salty Dawg. We LOVE this spot!! BUT in the Winter Iam having a hard time remembering why!


This pic was taken at 9:30 in the morning!! The kids had been swimming for at least an hour. See their happiness ??

Some how I don't see them AS happy here now!!

Holiday Cheer

Merry Christmas all !!! I hope that you all had a WONDERFUL Holiday with your family and friends.We had a houseful at one time we had over 30 people floating around the house for dinner and the family gift exchange. We are a loud group I decided. Why I am just now figuring that out I have NO idea. Anyway after dinner and gifts some of us went for a walk. We attempted some Christmas carols but i gotta say we were PRETTY SAD. Well here is most of us. Let me just say its WAY to hard to get this many people all looking goodish at the same time!! Hey lets just go with the fact that we look SMASHING Ü

The Boon and Monkey Boy were helping the girls make sugar cookies.

Hey after you make the sugar cookies ya GOTTA test em!! I taught Monkey Boy how to dip them in milk . OH what a FINE mess we made!! yayaya US!

For the family drawing Amos got Fallins name. They are the two Sara fans in the house. You know I was barfing a little in my mouth over this one!

The Future Glitter Queen is MUCH enjoying her lip gloss she got in the exchange

Hey every one needs a pair of these babies let me tell ya what!Here is Tink Modeling hers.
Tink got Bubbles a pair of Monkey footie Jammie's .

This one is for Mod !! See still got it! Little blurry but it was hard to get a close up.

We had a train station to build "Chew Chews" need tracks!!

Hey now don't be haten on my train maken skills!!!

My friends may know me a little TOO well?? Notice the knife that says WORLDS GREATEST BOWLER!! Ya baby now I got PROOF of my skills!!

Here is Dad holding up one of my Crab Stuffed Taters. Well really he is holding it up for Randy and just rubbing in the fact that Randy didn't get to have one. HOWWWWL!!(little bit of inside joke there)

Tink sporting a Christmas Bow while her and I were making Peanut Butter Bon Bons

Here is my ridicules tree. For a size comparison that red package in the back right hand corner is a 48 inch flat screen. Why do they always look small at the store???

Mish Mash

Well the Lap top is still in the Crapper, Chuk A Luck A Doo is trying to do her magic on it so we shall see. Any ways thought id better throw something up. One thing I have learned about Blogging your peeps get MOST MAD when there isnt new stuff. So here is some newish stuff!

Check out Tink, ADD girl and Bubbles . This isnt all the kids going but its who showed up for the pic.
Next spring's trip takes about 60 students and 35 adults to central Europe. They fly into Berlin and out of Munich, and visit by chartered tour bus Leipzig and Salzburg in Germany; Prague and Telc in the Czech Republic, and Vienna, Eisenstadt and Melk in Austria. A somber stop will be to the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria, where 119,000 prisoners including Jews, Poles, homosexuals, gypsies and Soviet POWs were killed during World War II. The choir sings in a variety of venues, from concert halls to cathedrals.
Ok this is kinda old news but some how October got away from me! This is Tinks First year in DDF She is digging it alot!! The kids did a great job!!! EVERY ONE of them placed NICEE! They went last weeked with a team of 22 and Tink made finals so she was pretty jazzed .
In the first tournament of the year, Homer High School's DDF -- Drama, Debate and Forensics Team -- made a name for itself at South High School in Anchorage Oct. 9-10.
Eighty-four students represented Chugiak, Service, Lumen Christi, South, Dimond, Nikiski, West Anchorage, Bartlett and Homer.

Fun with Captian Andy !

As ya all know Ive had Andy in the office all summer and had finally set him free a few weeks ago. But what you don't know is that Ive had visitor's and they wanna bond with Andy too. Ive caught a few on film So I thought id share Ü

Hey Even Andy got in the Act !!! He had a good chuckle over it. Oh I GOTTA tell you this story! (yes it relates i swear) OK So a delivery guy comes to deliver a load of books ,shirts etc for the Time Bandit Store and we were all out to lunch. So He takes the boxes to the Spit and tells Lou Hey those people at the office were so rude, I saw that guy with the cowboy hat in there and he would NOT answer the door!! Lou tells him "that's a cardboard cut out" the guys DIES of embarrassment!!And says he isn't telling ANYBODY . BAHHHH HAAAA!! Hey But I am!! So now Andy also doubles as a Security Guard! Ya know in case that whole "King Crab Fisherman" thing doesn't work out....

Big John was in doing some last minute stuff before they left for Dutch and just HAD to have a pic too. "This is the ONLY time Andy will be taller then me!" John is a Nice guy with a great sense of hummer. He makes me laugh... Hey John how are those burritos treating ya?? :op

I did NOT give Andy the earring!! That would have been Johnathon who thought his "BrAtha" NEEDED it.( Hey when you get 3 of the Hillstrands in one room there is a LOT of "BrAtha"ing being said!!)Took Andy 2 days to spot it ....I left it thinking it was kinda pirate'ish

The "Crew" drooped by during Homecoming week and took a couple pics with Andy too.

This is Andy's Halloween Costume , Hey I work with what I have around the office don't judge ;op Although Johnathon was pretty funny running around the office wearing the ears. Don't ask why we have 3 sets of Mickey ears laying around the office you see why later when i get back from Fairbanks

Time Bandit while Eddie was "babysitting" while in its home port of Homer~~~Safe travels boys!! Be safe and slay'em .I of course will take very good care of "Andy" for you! For those of you looking for more Deadliest Catch info on the boats go check out CB on Dutch Harbor Dirt a fun blog from a Dutch/Unalaska new comer . Well not that new any more as he is coming up on is one year arrival to Dutch.
Oh and for the record PHILL is my main man !!still most bummed i missed seeing him at the state fair! BOO!! Why Phill??? cause he reminds me of my dad when we worked on his boat. Anyone who worked on ANY of dads boats will SOOOOOOOOO know what iam talking about! Insert evil laughter here!! baaaaa bhaaaaa
