We have done a lot since my last post but I'll just touch on my favorite events... The in memory of Eddie Aikau contest was ON!!! It was the first time in 7 years that they have run it and it was sooo much fun! I'm so glad I got to see it because I haven't missed one since I have lived here which is almost all of the contests because this year was the 25th. It was packed! And even if I didn't want to go to the contest and go somewhere else instead I couldn't because since I live at Waimea I was pretty much blocked in by traffic! There is noooooo way I would have waited in that line of cars to go anywhere! But the contest was fun! We got our Christmas tree! It is a 7 foot noble fur! It's beautiful!! I'm sooo happy! Our colors are gold and red. The lights are a working progress, we need to buy more but these will do for now. We also ordered Luka a stocking to match ours. We took our Christmas photo as well so that we can send out cards so here is a preview. Poata's mom flew in from Samoa and arrived here on Friday. She loves Luka so much and is nice to have around! She is the sweetest lady ever! She brought Luka a whole bunch of Samoan clothes that he looks sooo cute in! He wore one of the outfits to church today. She will be here for a month so I will have plenty of time to take her around to see all of the Christmas festivities! We will go to see the Honolulu City Lights sometime this week so I will make sure to post some pictures of that soon. Here are some pictures of the previously mentioned activities.

Cool that the Eddie actually happened this year, I'm bummed I missed it. Cute tree and stockings. Fun that you get to spend time with your mom-in-law.
