Christmas 2010!! It was definitely a success! We had such a great year and we are so grateful for everything we were blessed with, throughout the year and for Christmas! I got what I wished for and so did Luka and Poata, we are all happy campers =) I loved Christmas so much this year because Luka knew what was going on and was excited to play with each present he received which made it so much more fun! We shared Christmas morning with my mom, step-dad, brother, sister and cousin Rama. Later that evening we had a big Christmas dinner. Unfortunately we missed the Honolulu City Lights this year. *big frown* We planned on going Christmas Eve which is a tradition of our but Luka was really sick that night and it was pretty stormy out so we skipped it. But we did do some other festive adventures like driving around to point out our favorite Christmas Lights and going to the Haleiwa Christmas Parade and baking cookies for Santa and going to our Ward's Christmas party, among other things. I hope you all had a fantastic Holiday season as well!!! xoxo

The Santa picture with Luka giving Santa the dirtiest look is the cutest one I've seen! I love it. And those pies looked super yummy Brisha!!

Glad you had a nice Christmas and New Year's:-) Can you believe our babies will be two this coming year? I'm so sad, yet excited at the same time.
