Its been awhile...its time to play catch-up from the last 2 weeks!
The night I made my last blog post, we received a surprise ding-dong ditch with these lovely beauties:
The following weekend was the Nutcracker Ballet, one of Adam's Christmas gifts to me. It was sooooo good. There was so much talent. The dancing was amazing and the symphony was flawless. We also enjoyed a nice dinner at Chili's and dessert at Red Mango, a new favorite frozen yogurt shop.
A snapshot of cutting the cake:
The next day was the beautiful wedding day at the Kona Temple on the Big Island.
That day we drove back to Adam's Dad's house and spent the night with Dad Harrison, Teresa, her son Isami, Adam's sister Noelani and her husband Sam, and their kids Gabe and Lydia. We opened Christmas presents with them the next morning, Christmas Eve day. We had to catch our flight back home at 1 pm. However, Adam and Sam ended up catching the stomach flu or something, and were sick all morning. Poor Adam, having to fly in the plane one hour after...welll....yeah, not good. Thank goodness he was feeling well enough to open Christmas presents on Christmas Day!
We moved our mattress out to the living room so we could sleep under the tree Christmas Eve. Please note all the leftover wrapping paper and boxes....yeah, we got spoiled this year...
It was so perfect because Adam got me a tripod for my camera, and my dad got me a remote control for my camera, so that's how we were able to take this shot with no one else around!
On our way up to Adam's mom's house for a Christmas with the fam, the North Shore waves were GINORMOUS (like this post). The roads were packed with cars and surfers and tourists and innocent bystanders galore. Of course they look tiny captured on a camera, but if anyone knows Shark's Cove, they know this is a wee bit abnormal.
