We visited Oahu and my personal favorite, Kauai (The Garden Island.)
I've been to Hawaii a few times before but this was particularly special because I got to share in the fun and beauty with my sweetie.
First day on Kauai. This is the moment Jer went in the ocean with his iphone in his pocket. :o/ but a beautiful place to do it, right?
That evening we had a family gingerbread house decorating contest. Becca and I were paired together and I think we did a bomb job on our house if I do say so myself! Later, we watched Home Alone.
Here she is! Aint she a beaut? And the house isn't too shabby either. ;o)
Christmas day we all sported our Hawaiian PJ's (Christmas Eve tradition) and opened our stockings! They were complete with some fun Hawaiian treats along with gifts, candy and fruit.
The adult kids got Di and Bry a Hawaii-Themed Christmas gift complete with apparel, recipes, spices and other fun treats. :o)
Stolen from facebook and totally crappy but here we are in our Hawaiian garb on Christmas morning!
That afternoon we took a walk along the beach and collected some fun shells and went tide-pooling. (I took a little spill which ended up being hilarious, wish I had a video.)
That evening we went to a delicious dinner and saw The Hobbit in 3D. Such a fun Christmas Day!
The next day we visited Waimea Canyon. Look at that background!
Our last full day was beautiful so we headed out for a beach day complete with more snorkeling.
We saw tons more cool fish and even some that starred on films such as Finding Nemo :o).
We had such a blast this Christmas and have Di and Bry to thank for some unforgettable memories!
