You probably won't hear from me until after the 9th of December. I know, it will be okay (Tina!) the other bloggers on my sidebar should keep you all entertained!
We are off on a super adventure, but I cannot put any more details on here. I am doing that purposely to drive my friend Deiss insane.
But here is the hint for Deiss: By the time Hunter is five months and one week old he will have been to three territories and two provinces. And in two weeks he will have travelled on 8 different flights.
When I get back folks I will tell you about the HUGE changes going on! Oh yes, HUGE! For those of you who know- don't say anything! I am going to drive Deiss so crazy she will be checking into the looney bin in no time!
We will miss you all! Have a great couple of weeks everyone!
love the Wents'.
heheh Where did we go Deiss?

My stone-faced doll! She stands about about 14" high. Her coat is made out of hikhik, rabbit and bits of wolverine. Her kamiks are made out of seal. You can pull her hood back and her hair is even carved in:
Our huge whale bone carving:

Another one of Matts favorites "Itchy Back": I took the antlers from the first caribou that I shot and had a local carver make a stone head for them and he also engraved many designs in the antlers:
"Seal Hunter in Kayak":
This one is beautiful. It is a family in their iglu. The dogs is even there, and behind is a child sleeping. Half of the money we spent on this carving was donated by the carver to the kids cancer ward in Edmonton.
The caribou on top of the inukshuk here is done out of antler:

He hates bath time so much. The expression on his face here tells it all:
"Well if the duckie likes it.... maybe this isn't so bad."
"Thanks for rescuing me Mommy."
Me and my boy:

Hunter was happy to see Dad come home and was full of giggles and squeals for him. And it looks like we will be cheering for the Oilers this year:
Can anyone help me on this one?
I would really like a pair of seal skin kamiks. I made myself a pair of caribou ones last year and love them, but seal skin ones are rarely made here.
Does anyone have a connection? I could send my measurements (I have horribly fat calves that are hard to fit), and money if you can get them made for me.
And if there is anything I can get for you from my end, just let me know! This community is famous for carvings like iglus where the top comes off!
