we had a great christmas...crazy, busy, fun....and then....the whole family met up in hawaii for some rest and relaxation....just what santa ordered......the first few days i chilled on the lounge....not wanting to think or move....it was perfect....the kids did activities...and i chilled some more....i think my brain was in overload so i couldn't do one more thing...the hotel had a party on new year's eve....we watched from our balconies...they had a band with a terrible singer...she droned on and on...but, they had fantastic fireworks....fun to watch....new years day we headed over to the north shore and met up with the hannemann family....went to the beach...they gave us a private party at their fantastic restaurant called "seven brothers"...it was delicious....the next day russ went surfing with shem and brought andrea, tams and ira back to visit...then, shem came and we went to dinner at the aulani resort which was next door...it was delicious...but, we had the only rain of the trip that night..and it poured....they rushed us inside and took really good care of us....it was a heavenly trip....and i need to go back!
