Sorry about lagging on the blogging. We got back from Hawaii safe n sound and what can I say, I want to move there! I told Jay I could never live in La’ie and that held true even last Christmas but this time it was different. I think being a mother now and having another one on the way, I’m more family oriented and more down to earth whereas in before, I was like “there’s no way I could live in that country! I would have to drive an hr. every time I want to go to the mall or a restaurant!” A big reason is that Adalie loved it so much and I miss taking her on a walk or bike rides everyday to find roosters or dogs. Jay says he thought he couldn’t love me any more than he already does but after saying I could live there, he says his love for me grew so much more. 😀
We didn’t send out a Christmas card this past year like we wanted to because we wanted to take a family picture in HI on the beach and so we decided to send out a new year holiday greeting later on but um…the pictures didn’t turn out the way we wanted them to due to Jay’s swollen eyes caused by allergies. All the pictures of us facing the camera we can’t use because Jay looks stoned or just not all there, you take your pick. 😉 We did post the ones where we’re all looking sideways or of our backs and that’s as good as it’ll get and I have to be happy with that. 🙁 Maybe next year…
And being there while prego and in the intense humidity my legs and everything else did swell up extra 20 lbs. (plus the 6 lbs. I gained there!) but I still loved it. Man what excuse will I come up with next Christmas for my holiday lbs.? Haha but seriously. I felt huge. And my belly is as big as last time when I was 9 months with Adalie. Anywho I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and happy happy new year to you all! May all your wishes come true this year.
