Sunny Yurt and Kaya Comes Home Again

Ahhhhhhhh. The best thing about February is more sun light. When it isn't cloudy, snowing, or raining that is. When the sun is out and it warms up, we take off our window covers and insulation inserts (which have been closed all winter for heat retention) and let the light pour in.

A sunny day after a big snow.

In family news: Kaya is wearing every one out!

We actually just got back from a 5 day stay at the hospital for a respiratory virus Kaya contracted. She gave us a good scare but is home now and doing well. Here is the happy mama and her bewildered baby just home from the hospital.

Kaya being well again and coming home today was the best Valentines gift we could have received. The chocolates were nice too though.
Thanks to every one who helped take care of Leo, the dogs, brought us things in the hospital, sent us warm wishes, and offered to help us out. It made us realize how fortunate we have been in the past year and a half to make such wonderful Alaska friends who we consider to be our Alaskan family.

Introducing Kaya Rivera Schneider - A New Yurt Baby

Here is Kaya just home from the hospital:

She was born Feb 3 at 2:00PM at 7 pounds and 7 ounces. Look at that hair!

Both mama and baby are doing great!

Kaya has been asleep for almost the entire time.

Papa enjoying the sleeping baby.

Leo got to visit at the hospital but was much more interested in watching TV and riding on the elevators.

The Pressman family will be happy to know that Kaya has inherited Nicki's hic-ups.
