Na, na, na, na, Na, na...they say it's your birthday....
Na, na, na, na, NA, na...its MY birthday too, yeah.
I'm looking forward to some patkotak sisters birthday requests for my birthday this year. If no one requests that for me, I'll be thoroughly disappointed.
newborn..two days old
Chickaloon the coolest place in the coolest state!
my best play pen ever
I have to say. Aside from my roof leaking all over the place, my daughter's fever and LONG night, and my messy house...it's been a good day so far. The snow is blowing sideways, so we're probably NOT going fishing today, as is customary on my birthday. But that's OK, because I'd have to skip out to take care of Kaisa. Someone is looking out for me.
Happy age 1 birthday!
This is where all the babies are put...with the puppies in the pen, so we get used to each other! (We had lots of sled dogs growing up!)
Sisualik kids...Josie and Maija
I don't know what will happen tonight, what I DO know is that my husband brought me four bottles of wine from Anchorage (I live in a "damp" community, no alcohol sold anywhere except on the bootleg market) so I'm happy to see that at our bar!
Three years old at my mom and dad's wedding...
One of many fur things!
Me and my bud Donnie!
So... if you're in or around the Kotzebue, Alaska area, come on over to house 425 for a full on Mexican night. I think we're having "Margarita's with Maija". Last year it was Mai Tai's, the year before was my Dirty Thirty... you get the picture.
All we wore/wear is parky's in the winter...
and we make them from ANYTHING. This one is rabbit.
And now for your entertainment:
Five Celebrities I share a birthday with and my reason's for claiming them!
1. Al Pacino (1940)
Al has my back in any fight I have...he can also dance like no other and just has that air around him that makes me want him to be my mob uncle.
2. Renee Zellweger (1969)
He had me at Hello. And that is for real...so I HAD to include her. Besides, sometimes I can be a little flighty.
3. Tim Duncan (1976)
At only a year younger, he's the bomb diggity. Since I like to pretend to play basketball, he and I are cool like that.
4. Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996)
Sometimes when I'm at Kari or Stacey's...I like to Karaoke. Once or twice I remember doing it at the Woodshed in Anchorage. I do like to sing to my kids though...so she and I. yeah.
5. Jason Lee (1970)
Lastly, anyone who plays a guy named Earl and has a son in REAL life named Pilot Inspektor HAS to be cool to hang with. Hey Jason...you're cool!
My cousin Summer and I.
Me and my awesome sister Saima... 13 and 8 years old! HAHA
Fifteen years old I believe!
In closing. Some words of wisdom from my dad. Who by the way had never before called and left a message for me on the phone... (So, I'm a little excited...I'll take what I can get)
