Fun Day--January 5th!

Temple beach is so fun to go to. It's like a 10 minute walk and it's beautiful!
Muscle man Dane--take that Grampa Kevin, a.k.a. Grampa Muscle man!

Paige is a sand girl, she usually starts to squeal after a while "my buns hurt" yeah sweetie--it's because you have sand in every crack and crevice! But she rolls and scoots and runs and throws and anything else you can think of to do with sand!

Dane loves to to cruise the beach for "treasures"! I call it junk, but to Dane it's a treasure! We are always taking home rotten coconuts, random sticks, bottle tops, fish bones, you name it, it's a treasure! And Paige and her sand bucket!

The girls! On this day, Dane was in school till 12:45, so Paige, Max and I went to the beach until then and then walked across the street to Laie Elem. and picked Dane up and went back. We stayed there for almost 5 hours--Max loves the beach too. He sleeps and kicks sand and tries to eat as much as he can while I'm not looking! He's at a perfect age to take to the beach! We are gonna have a lot of these in the next couple months!

Time is going too fast!

Just a few cute pictures of kids--they make me a happy mom, a crazy mom sometimes, but definately a happy mom!
Paige playing on the jungle thing at the mall while we were waiting for our van to bet serviced!
Dane, Max and Wesley! Max is tired of being too little to run around. His legs and arms are moving constantly trying to get himself to take off!

Dane and Paige can't get enough of Max! I usually have to protect Max from being mauled and wrestled to death, but I'm glad they love eachother! It's funny, because most of the time Max giggles when Dane is wrestling him.

This little guy melts my heart. I don't know if the 3rd kid is just easier or maybe it's just Max, but he's darling inside and out. He thought it was pretty fun to sit in the boxes Christmas came in from Gramma Ginny and Ma Diane!

Happy Happy Baby!

I want time to slow down for the next couple months! It's strange to remember that when I first moved here I hated it and wanted to go home. I could hardly wait till it was over...but NOW I'm definately singin a different tune--a hawaiian tune! Some days I try to come up with a way to just stay here and then other days I can't wait to live in my little house again across the street from my parents. Anyhow--I love the experiences our little family is having here!

Just a Short One! Funny Stuff!

Aloha from Paradise!

Wow--I'm behind! I have to get some funny things down before I forget! I have lots to post and fun pictures, but I need to have some free time and lately that's not happenin! So...

Dane and Paige were jumping off the couch and Paige accidently hit Dane and he fell apart. So Paige climbed up on the couch and turned so she was facing the couch. I asked her why she was mad and she said, "I'm just gonna lay here and worry about myself." I laughed pretty hard! I guess she's heard "worry about yourself" a few times. Hey, at least she knows what it means!

A couple months at Dane's class was one of the girl's birthdays and her mom brought cupcakes. When I picked Dane up, I asked if she was his friend, he said yes, so I asked what her name is and he said, "I don't know her name, she's brown, I only know her color"

Dane plays with a little Tongan boy named James every single day! A couple weeks ago, Dane started saying some funny little words, I didn't have a clue what he was saying, so I asked him and he said, "James taught me some words in tonga, that means candy in tonga!" By the way, James wants to eat EVERYTHING! Dane thinks he's a local boy--he doesn't like to wear undies anymore and he has started to shorten all his words! It's funny!
