January 2017 Bring in the New Year!!!!!

While Grandpa and I were in Hawaii for New Years, we were so worried and tired and wondering how we were going to come home and put things away ........ these elves were hard at work. Oh, how I cried when I saw that they had cleaned our house and put it all away. I was glad we had at least put the trees away before we left. Thank you - Thank you - little elves from the bottom of our heart. You will never ever know just how much this meant to us. You are all the BEST! Love you!
Basketball brothers Grant and Jace
It is so great that Grant enjoys his little brother on his basketball team.

When she got back on the plane, she threw up the rest of the trip until we got to Hawaii.
We went through a few throw up bags
I just held her on my lap the rest of the trip. I felt so bad for her
Can we go now????? Please!
We dropped the kids off to Kaahu and went to Ko 'olina for a few days to rest and relax
