Today Keet handed me a phone case for a mobile phone. No phone inside. I started to talk on it, and told him it was Akka and passed him the phone. He said "Hello! Yeah Good! Fun! Bye" and hung up.
Da-ka in in California ("airplane Mackiki" - Keet reminds me he's with MacKenzie). He'll be giving an artist talk at UC Davis tomorrow with his Uncle Larry McNeil.

This picture reveals my true parenting skills. Just in time for Halloween!

Where is Keet-O?

We went to the Quyana Nights at the Alaska Federation of Natives on Thursday night, and guess who ended up in the paper on Sunday. This is an invitational dance, so everyone is invited to join in. 
Where is Keet?

One last nod to Fall- Cheese and a Moose

Fall was beautiful, but over already. We've had snow on the ground since 10/10/10. I managed to film a bit of the first snow, and will upload that soon to the One Day on Earth film project.

School is crazy busy as always, and Keet seems to have adjusted to being away from us 36 hours a week. Of course, I was reading a "parenting" book yesterday that said I SHOULD feel guilty about being away from my toddler when I could be staying at home instead. Thanks La Leche Leauge!

We're in the market for a new daycare setup, as Miss Nicole is expecting baby #4 in April! Great for her, but not so great for Keet. We'll find something suitable, but it makes the work challenge even harder.

The days are darker, but we have a new Happy Light, so maybe that will make the change less shocking to the system. Plus, Hawaii awaits! THANK YOU TOOTH FAIRY!!!

He's Famous...

From: Julian Hibbard 

Dear Da-ka-xeen and Maya, 
I wanted to write and express my joy and appreciation 
at seeing the video you posted of Paul reading his ABC's on YouTube. Your son looks 
adorable and the footage absolutely captivated me.  I hope you don't mind but I created
a link to it on my website and shared the information with my publisher who also 
posted a link on their blog - 
Thank you for purchasing my book and sharing such a special moment. 
Fairbanks, Alaska looks like a wonderful environment for Paul to grow up in and
I wish you all a life of much love and happiness together. 
Best wishes,
