Christmas Toys

Daddy very impressively got out the saw and koa wood, Christmas morning, and made some really cool wooden toys for the kids. A rubberband shooting gun and a hero's sword for our little warriors. (there was another sword but Makaio broke it immediately before I got the chance to take a photo).

Winter Solstice

Christian made this very nice Christmas card at school. Sorry I couldn't change the orientation before posting. (it's a christmas tree with two very cute elves below wrapping presents... and it's snowing- not that he has a clue what snow is! lol)

This card was made by Makaio who is also obsessed with snow, snowflakes, and snowmen.... he just doesn't have a clue!
Then we went to the WInter Solstice Festival and the boys rode ponies... well the pirate spiderman boy (Journey and Makaio did- Christian is too cool for pony rides now) *sigh*

Christmas is coming...

As I woke up Christian today his first sleepy words that came out before his eyes even opened were...
"6 more days!"

Hmmmm.... don't remind me! Yes, so much still to do and today is the last day of school! How to get it all done with not one but THREE little guys contributing to the usual chaos?

Actually I am looking forward to having my little guys around next week. This will be my first Christmas without my parents and receiving a package from them in the mail today, with gifts to put under the tree and money to buy kids presents from them... made me miss them. My mother in law won't be here either, nor Matt's brothers and theirs. It is going to be a merry LITTLE Christmas this year, but an intimate holiday will be fun (just different).

Today was the Christmas musical of Holualoa School. Santa was there with grass skirt and lei- just as he should be for a Hawaiian Mele Kalikimaka! Christian's class sang Mele Kalikimaka and Makaio sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (dressed appropriately)...

*sigh* PEACE ON EARTH!!! (pictured below)
