’tis the season

after my birthday is when the Christmas season begins…

so the tree is up…

the decorations are out…

ive done limited christmas shopping… (really better get on that)

i made the cards.. just haven’t sent them yet

want one?  give me your address :)

the kids are super excited per usual

busy season for us..

nalu is off to states on oahu for swimming right before xmas

we leave for california for a week right after xmas

im trying hard to keep everything down to a minimum

minimum of shopping, cooking (who’s kidding, I don’t cook), wrapping,

im trying to emphasize downtime and sleep  (hard for me)

anyway.. here is us (minus the big boys) getting ready to celebrate in

a fun, low key, simple, hawaii type version of christmas
