New Year's Eve Hawaii Style

New Year's Eve in Hawaii involves more fireworks than the 4th of July! But, sorry, none of the firecracker pics were very good....but good time we had was able to be captured on film....yes, even Shelly stayed up past midnight.
Derek, Tammy & Jonathan doing some kind of dance
Narada getting ready to help Nalu with a sparkler
Michelle & Jonathan getting cozy
Kolby, Kai, Nalu & Kanai (pyros in the making)
Kaileen, Alex, Hana & Tyson
Is it the jello shots causing them to make those faces?

Michelle, Audrey, Marian & Bruce....geesh! You'd think it was 40 degrees or was probably close to 70

We had an absolutely fantastic time catching up with our friends, the Hohberg's.

We feasted on lamb and ham...yum!

We had so much fun....we just hope it isn't another 2 years before we see each other again!!

Christmas Eve 2008

It may have been a little cruel of me...but by now, I think that's what's expected of me...hee hee.
I got the boys these cute little santa hat & boxer sets...then tortured them with posing for a pic. I think Kolby was the only one who truely appreciated the gift from my!

Merry Christmas!!

Kolby's Church Christmas Program 2008

We started going to this small community church in our neighborhood while grandpa and grandma were here visiting over Thanksgiving. We liked that it is close to home and has a very intimate feel. On Saturday, December 13th, Kolby was a angel in the Christmas Program put on for the entire Haliimaile community. It was really a lot of fun, and he did a fantastic job!!

Kepawailani Heritage Gardens

Relaxing at Polo Beach

Dinner at Mama's

This was their first visit to Maui. Grandma said they never had the desire to go to Hawaii until we moved here. They were swept away by the beauty of the island, and vow to come back on their 65th wedding anniversary (they've been married 61yrs). We did our best to show them as much as we possible could during their 10 day stay, because we wanted to make it as memorable as possible for them.
