Christmas Caroling at The Pioneer Home

We joined a group of home school familes for Christmas caroling at The Pioneer Home. Benjamin brought his birthday Woody along for the event. He wasn't interested in caroling, but just came to dance. He got stage fright and just swayed and performed minimal footwork. 

Waiting and catching up with a friend.

To be a resident at the Pioneer Home one has to have reached pioneer status as an Alaskan resident. I am not sure but I think that is thirty years.

Here is a parka that belonged to a Pioneer named Sam White. My husband read a book about him last year, he lived one adventurous life.

After caroling we went to a friend's church for hot cocoa and cookies and fellowship.

Then we made a quick trip for groceries and then home because the temperature was -35 degrees on Monday.


  1. Looks like a great time. And now I'm going to have to look up who Sam White was. :)

  2. -35 does not make me wanna come back! It was 85 yesterday!
