Getting our "Mojo" back

For christmas our friends gave us a box of golf balls to tell us we need to start doing the things we love again (After all Abby is 9 months old and we had yet to go golfing) We used to go every Monday before she was born and we fell in love with the sport. So "Thank you" Thelers for helping us get our "mojo" back!

Ward Christmas Party

Saturday night was our ward Christmas party. They had a middle eastern market place set up when you first walked into the building. There were booths with fun things to do like make beaded necklaces, have your name written in Arabic, weird peices of bread to eat and lots of other neat things to do. After we walked up and down the marketplace everyone went into the gym for a program, which Matt narrated, and a yummy dinner!

Early this morning around 2:00am Matt and I were awaken by a loud BOOM followed by shaking of our home. We were both out of bed in .2 seconds flat just staring at each other trying to figure out what just happened. Matt went down stairs to check on things and when he passed a window he saw a HUGE tree just lying on our back porch. We have been having TONS of rain and I guess it just got too heavy. When I called maintenance today and explained our situation they lady replied "You have a large branch on your porch?" "No, it's an entire tree" I explained!

This is where the tree was.....

This is where it is now!

What a rough life!

This is what Christmas shopping does to a little girl. And this is what a teething little girl does to her dad!

Grandma and Grandpa's Thankgiving visit!

My mom and dad came to visit us the week of Thanksgiving. We had fun trying to show them things they hadn't already seen. We went to a Budist Temple, took a bus tour of Kualoa Ranch (where they film most of the movies/TV shows that are filmed in Hawaii) had picnics at the beach and ate a yummy Thanksginving dinner (but I forgot to take pictures of that:)
