Lainey's cheese face...is too stinkin' cute!

Such a handsome boy...that Brayden!

Brayden's performance of Silent Night...
(he mentioned that it was very loud and
bright, and that he didn't really like it)
So much so that he performed on stage
TWICE! Once on Christmas Eve-Eve, and
again on Christmas Eve.
He was happy to be up there...
and even happier to come down!
That little guy is too funny.

Christmas Eve service at
Hope Chapel West Oahu!

Merry Christmas ...

five amazing years.

This is still sinking in. My little baby boy is 5 years old. Man, that went by fast.
5 years ago, on our birthday, I was a brand new mommy holding a precious bundle in my arms. My life was forever changed. Because of you I am me, a better gift I could never receive. Brayden, I look at you in awe - you are so beautifully and amazingly made. I thank God for you. More energy in a child I have never seen, a dull moment...never! Everyday as I watch you I try to soak it all in, I don't want to forget a moment of your sweet childhood. My dear firstborn, you have captivated my heart. You are so you, and I love every single bit of it. You are so sweet and sensitive. You love to help, no matter what it is. You have a heart of gold, and I love watching life through your eyes.

You do not like to be alone, you love being with your family.
I can remember when you were a baby, you never wanted to leave my side.
Now, you are every bit a daddy's boy. He loves you more than you will ever know.

you love to wrestle and play sports.
you love to learn...you love to paint.
you are a great eater, there is nothing you don't like.
you are 39 pounds.
you never run out of questions.

you love to be outside playing.
you adore other children and love your friends.
you have such a strong spirit and i love it.
its just who you are.
you are you.
and you are so totally...well,

we love and adore you so, so very much.
you are our little boy and always we be.
happy fifth birthday sweetie.


o hawaiian christmas tree

This year we went Hawiaan! I wanted one of these trees last year but forgot, and I thought it was my last chance...little did I know we would be here for 2 more years~!
It's a Norfolk Pine...and I am totally lovin' it! It is cute and sweet and makes me smile everytime I look at it! Brayden loves it too and was totally offended when one of his buddies called it silly looking, it was really cute! We drove up to the North Shore to Helemano Farms, there we got to walk all around the trees and pick out the perfect one, then a worker cut it down! Some perks of this tree is 1)that the needles will not fall, 2)it will stay green for longer than a month, 3)they aren't shipped in-so no foreign species are brought in that could harm Hawaii's environment, and 4)it channels Charlie Brown's Christmas tree which is kinda fun! What do you think? =)
