One busy week in review

Last week would have been the perfect week to be back in Florida. Not only would we have escaped the chilly single-digit temperatures up here in Alaska, we could have helped Martha celebrate her birthday (Happy Birthday!) and would have had an incredible time at Nick and Danielle’s wedding (Congrats!).

From what we’ve heard and seen in Facebook photos, the wedding was beautiful and everyone had a great time. Andrew and I wish we could have been there to join in on the good times, but I’m sure there will be many more in the years to come. Congratulations from both of us and we hope to see you soon!

To everyone up in Pittsburgh – Go Steelers! For anyone who was hiding in a cave over the weekend, the Steelers won their record sixth Super Bowl against the Arizona Cardinals in a 27-23 victory. With 35 seconds remaining, Santonio Holmes caught Ben’s pass, tapped his little toes in the end zone and scored the winning touchdown. It was pretty nice.

We'd also like to send a little get well message to my grandpap Chuck Singiser. Only days after his back surgery on Friday, he was up and walking around. We hope you have a speedy recovery and are feeling great very soon!

For us, we’re just doing our best to keep warm up here in Anchorage. Other than the cold and snow, the news around here is full of buzz about Sarah Palin’s shoes and a volcano that’s about to erupt, but that’s about it.

I’ll keep you posted on the volcano, Mount Redoubt. Scientists say it could erupt in days, weeks or maybe won’t even happen at all. It’s about 100 miles away from the city and the biggest danger it has in store for us is “several millimeters of ash.” Here’s what it looked like when it last erupted in 1990:
