[the beginning of our eternity]

a Little bit of HEAVEN on Earth

So I have always had a fascination with ice cream. My favorite for a long time was Breyer's Rocky Road.... I have found a new love. I eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner until it's gone. I even keep a fork (i know it's weird i eat my ice cream with a fork) in the freezer right next to the carton.

Introducing my new found love... Haagen Dazs, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle ice cream. It's like heaven in your mouth. YUM! If you are EVER having a hard day, don't hesitate, just go buy some of this marvelous ice cream!

Our Hawaiian Holidays

We've had a very busy holidays!!! The party season began with graduation. Two of my sister in laws and one of my brother in laws graduated from BYU-Hawaii and my other brother in law graduated with his MBA from Southern Utah University. So my brother and sister in law rented out a beach house in Hau'ula. They had a big party for graduation and we had a fun time as a family spending time exploring the beach and there was even a seal right outside the house one morning! So fun.

We decided to use a tree from one my in laws and Kala was so excited. He crawled right over and started grabbing at it. He just wanted to get ahold of it so bad!Nothing says christmastime like time at the beach... haha well a hawaiian christmas at least!We also had a fun time making goodies on Christmas Eve and delivering them to friends!Kala woke up on christmas with the hugest smile on his face. He just knew that there was something special about it!He sure had a good time ripping open his little present!
His favorite part of his presents from Grandma and Grandpa akina, were the ribbons on the presents haha.His cousins spoiled him like crazy with lots of fun toys!We also had a fun time with Kaulana's extended family at Uncle Renny's house the day after christmas!New Years Eve we went to a friends beach house and lit TONS of fireworks... and when I say tons, it is a complete understatement! We had a barbecue and tons and tons of food. Along with the game just dance on the Wii. Oh my goodness.. What a FUN game!
