Stuart and Malia's Excellent Adventures! (A highly condensed version)

Ok ok... so I started a post about our time in California and I got so bored with writing about it! Don't take that the wrong way, I think anyone would be bored reading it too! We had such a great time in California but writing about it turned out to be a boring travel log with no pictures! And I personally am not a fantastic storyteller like my husband so I just don't think I should post what I had written so I think I'll just highlight a few things....

Also, I was horrible with picture taking, I think I got used to only using the camera in the water and even though we did get in the water and surf a few times, it was too cold to even think about bringing the camera out.

Most importantly.... we were able to spend time with family and friends and enjoy the spirit of Christmas! We were able to see almost our entire family (Michal, Jared, and kids... we missed you dearly!) including 2 little nephews we had never met before! We are so grateful we were able to make it to California for the Holidays and we enjoyed every minute of it! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season and wish you a very Happy New Year! (I know its already 1/2 way through the month but I still want to wish you a happy new year!)

I know I said no pictures.... but I have to sneak this picture in here...


This is one of the new nephews Scotty... and I think its a pretty cute picture... reading his Hippo Book... you know I have to love that!

I LOVE THAT PICTURE!!! You know, its his favorite book now :-) If he's crying, we take out the hippo book and he stops, looks a the pictures, and hits the book with his hands. THANK YOU!!!
We miss you guys too...maybe sometime soon we can get out to that rock in the middle of the ocean and visit you :-)

Yeah erika we'd love for you guys to come visit us out here! I think Alli and Flint are coming out in march, i think they'll be on the big island for Flints work and then make it over here!

I love that Tyler got that Hippo book for scotty! And I love that he loves it! Very cute!

Yea!! I check all my children's posts every morning - and had just relegated yours to bookmark status. You are back on the bannerhead - and I loved reading all your posts. I tried to teach my 1st graders about islands by saying that if the ocean dried up, we could drive to Hawaii...How I wish it were that easy.
